Trust me, you DO NOT want to attempt to install this yourself. That's overpriced anyway. I have an installer here in Houston that does the X-pel kit (looks the same as that one, except for the door edge pieces, which he'd probably throw in for cheap) for $395 installed. Had mine done the day I picked up my car; this is an absolute must-have on dark colors.
$1100 is way too much. I dont understand why some installers find the need to charge that much. I can amazed that an Xpel installer would do a full kit like the StonGard kit installed for $395 installed. Good for you. Never seen that before.
We offer a full kit for the FX at $308 which is the best price on the net plus install
If anyone has any questions or concerns about the product let me know. I would be happy to help.
Yeah, my guy here in Houston, Steve Perez, does a great job for an amazing price, and he stands by his work. All of the high-end dealers in town use him (including Infiniti) and if you go through the dealer, you'll pay $695 for the same kit. Now THAT'S dealer mark-up. Anyway, if you go direct through him, the deal can't be beat; I've referred several people in the area to him and they're all very satisfied. When I had my FX done, there were no existing door cup patterns from X-pel, so he designed them on the spot, scanned them in and computer-cut them for me; turned out great.
I got a quote of ~$900 from SE-EX (Thomas, in NYC) to do the full front & rear bumpers, 12" of hood & leading edge of the front fenders... that's a whole lotta money to install a few sheets of clear plastic.
I had my xpel kit installed last week on my black FX45. The installer did an excellent job. He arrived at my home at 8:30 AM and was not finished untill 1:30 PM. I was watching the entire time. There is no way I could have done it my first at bat. After seeing him do it, I thought maybe I could give it a try. Although, messing up $400 worth of plastic would have sucked. I recomment having a installer do it.
Got it done at Clear Armor in Mountain View. His clients include the likes of jerry rice, terrel owens, and others. I went there twice, FX and my other car, each time, I saw exotic cars there...saw a Porsche Carrera GT and Ferrari Modena...so the guy knows what he's doing. PM me, I'll go dig out the number if you need it.
