Has anyone put XPEL or any other kind of ppf on the R1T?
Insane, I paid $2800 in Alaska (where almost everything is more expensive) 4 years ago for paint correction, full car ceramic pro gold, and XPEL on my model 3 for the: front, hood, and both front quarter panels.
I used PPF on my last vehicle and would absolutely do it again; I did the entire hood, both FQPs, and mirrors and that's what I'm intending to do to the truck. I received my R1T this week and the only reason it's not already in the shop getting PPF applied is because Rivian is returning this coming week to repair some cosmetic issues on the driver door at delivery.Totally new to all the paint protection options out there. Looking for the best all around solution and from what I gather it's PPF with a ceramic coating on top. Won't be cheap but well worth the investment.
Agreed. Worth it is always subjective of course, and some people are willing to spend $5k-$10k protecting their car from small door dings and rock chips (which is of course their right), but I wouldn't do it, especially since if you get a rip or a hole in the PPF, or get into a small fender bender, most insurance companies will not cover the cost of replacing the PPF. I have PPF on my current car (because I used to commute 170 miles/day and thought it would be worth it from the rock chips), but got a small hole from a rock chip, and it is now collecting dirt in the area surrounding the film. Replacing it would require me to pay not only for the replacement film, but also for the removal of the old. Conversely, we did not do PPF on my wife's car, and although she has some (not very all noticeable) rock chips on her bumper, it would probably be cheaper to get it re-sprayed every 5 years than to have it PPFed.Seeing the prices for these services, I don't understand why this is so popular? It doesn't seem worth it?
You are a Utah guy if I remember right.Cost? If you don’t mind sharing.
That is high. I just got a quote (have int done next week) and for stealth 8mil + tint it was $8295.
Wouldn't get ceramic on top of PPF unless it makes the PPF shinier. Never noticed that it did on the Tesla.Totally new to all the paint protection options out there.
