protecting the finish with Ppf is essential where I live. lots of pebbles on the road so kicking them up does nothing to the paint. plus this matte paint sucks for longevity of durability. the cost is definitely worth it(to me)compared to looking at imperfections or rock chips.

I am getting quotes between $1850-$2100 for either of the brands from two different shops in the Scottsdale, AZ area. Then $1300 on top of that to do a 4 layer ceramic pro treatment to the car. Does this seem reasonable?

Hey fellas,

What has been your experience with Feynlab? I've gotten a Modesta coating in the past and loved it but getting a quote from a new shop recommended by a few good friends of mine and they use Feynlab.

Feynlab seemed to hold up well for the two years I had it on the M3.

Do you have any experience with Modesta? If so how would you say it compares? Does the Feynlab coating give that high gloss almost wet look? That's what I loved about the Modesta coating.

Havenít heard of Modesta before.

Yeah, the Feynlab always looked great when clean. Problem with AZ is that vehicles get dusty quickly so the wet look doesnít last too long even if overall the car is still clean and just dusty.

General consensus seems to be XPEL is the top dawg? No one uses Kavaca?

I agree, if it isnít too late and the work has already been done the OP should definitely do the rocker panels which many people ignore when just doing the front of their cars.

Also he shouldnít ignore the A pillars and side mirror covers. Finally put Xpel Ultimate Plus PPF on the headlights.

Unless you purchase a PPF that is also hydroponic many of us want ceramic coating over our PPF.

I still don't get it. Just spray some quick detailer on there after you wash your car. Why the need for ceramic coating?

If you care for it properly the coating will last a very long time. 😉

Completely agree. I donít want to have to do spray wax after every single wash. Been there done that and ceramic coating on top of ppf is the way to go.

I guess the vegetation helps deflect any rock chips!
