where are these complaints you speak of?

Protex is crap. My father-in-law purchased a new Macan last summer from Porsche Langley and the dealer had to have the front rewrapped because it was peeling.

Anyone heard of Jurgen at Vancouver Clear Bra? Ken is using Stek vs Xpel? Is Stek now comparable to Xpel Ultimate Plus that just came out?

Can check out speed projects lab. Check their Instagram. They always post pictures of their work. They do xpel paint protection and seal off with a xpel sealant.

Ok so who would you all recommend for install? I’m looking to do a full wrap on a Civic Type R.

Xpel Ultimate Plus vs Stek vs Protex Ultra? I don’t love the idea of ceramic coating every few years. I plan on keeping the car 10-12 years, and I park it outside in the elements.

Jurgen and his crew were amazing to begin with but as they got bigger and needing more people the place went to absolute shit. I asked for Zaino one day and I think all they did was wash it

I think I may pass on the PPF and may just go with a more durable ceramic coating for ease of keeping clean and not needing to wax twice a year.

Iím leaning towards going with GTECHNIQ crystal serum using Ken at Autowerkes. He seems to get a lot of praise here.
