Paint Protection Film

Hey has anybody had the 3m Scotchgard Paint Protection Film applied? My salesperson recommended it from a third party vendor (dealership does not sell it).

I was wondering how much it costs to do the front end and how well it holds up. I see the expected life is 5 years.

Paint film

Your Toyota doesn't need any protection because it has a clear coat on it. As long as the clear coat is there your paint will never oxidize. After many cleanings the clear coat will show the ubiquitous scratches and a good name brand non-cleaner wax will fill the scratches and make it look new again. That should take at least two years in the frozen regions, three to four in the dry southwest where the cars stay cleaner longer. Any coatings/protectors that the dealers sell just adds more to their profit margin.

I live in an area that has several sand and gravel operations, hence the local roadways throw lots of grit and rock during normal driving. I have a red Sienna that shows LOTS of front end rock chips. I am told the paint protection film is the best solution. I see its even called the "clear bra". The local Lexus dealer is big on the "clear bra" solution.
