PPF/ Paint Protection Film
Is it really worth it?
Paint Protection Film (PPF) is a fully transparent film placed over the top of your car’s paintwork, which helps to protect your car from stone-chips, micro-scratches, minor scuffs and paint swirls. PPF can be placed anywhere with no interference to your car’s natural look; you won’t even know it’s there, but you’ll be glad you have PPF when a stone hits your pristine paint and doesn’t leave a trace.
PPF can also be applied to headlights, to prevent chips and the cracking of lenses. Replacement headlights can be expensive. Most headlights require removal of the bumper in order to access and replace them. The labour charges alone from dealers will already have your heart racing.
Even Carbon Fibre, well known for being extremely tough, isn’t as indestructible as you might think. The clear coating can chip and scratch, leaving what was once a pristine, black carbon fibre splitter looking worn and unsightly. Any chips to the gel coating will leave you with an expensive bill when it comes to repairing the damage.
