Anyone have any experience with the Mylar Film protection they put on hoods & bumpers? Does it last? Any problems?

Thanks for the info. The 3M clear film would be new. Does $650 on a 325xi sound about right for the hood, bumper, mirror fronts, etc. - that's what I was quoted.

well.. yea . You can actually buy the stuff for about half that... but it takes some skill to apply it on perfectly.

I think I'll pass on the self installation - I don't want to learn as I go.
