Sitting on the fence this time. I had it on most of my previous cars. Imho ppf robs the car of its natural shine and luster after a couple of years if you don’t coat it(cquartz/Opti-pro). The presence of ppf did not fetch me a penny extra when I traded them in. Lol.

I do not have PPF on my current Hellcat Charger, usually drive it like I stole it, but not a single sign of any imperfection or dings/scratches. FWIW my SRT is without the ppf as well and everything’s good. But then again it’s white so one needs to factor that in as well.

I was seriously considering the Nano-Fusion ppf for my black Trackhawk and almost booked an appointment last night. The shop i visit, caters to a bevy of high end clientele and they recently stopped offering XPEL and suntek to customers, due to various complaints. I was offered a package for the entire hood/fenders/mirrors/ rockers. $2k out of the door.

I am not really familiar with nano fusion. Would like to know if somebody opted for that. What are your thoughts about PPF? Any Trackhawk owner out here who chose not to apply PPF?

Suntec Ultra. We covered most of the vehicle then did Sapphire V1 ceramic. Perfect!

I did everything. Rims, calipers, engine and bay with full interior plus the “gold package” for the paint.

Paint correction is part of the process, new car should cost around 300. The gold package was around 1300. It was nearly 3k all in. Allegedly, it has a 30 year warranty but time will tell. I hand wash nearly weekly and have noticed a big difference when I clean it. Just a high pressure wash takes care of the bugs n such. The hydrophobic properties of the coating makes drying a little difficult but I started using an electric leaf blower and it works like a charm.

Anyone having experience with Modesta or Crystal serum ultra? I got a quote for $1395 for crystal serum ultra for the exterior and $350 for the wheels. Is that the ball park price?

I've had PPF installed on every new car I've purchased since 2005. Some of my cars just got the front end and rocker panels covered, but on many others I've covered the entire car.

I've not seen any degradation on any PPF that I've had applied in the past 5-6 years. The technology keeps getting better.

And, it's saved me $$$ in the long from not having to fix rock chips. I bought a new very expensive car this week and it's getting the full treatment.

Thanks hawkeye33! My newest ride is an F-car, but the Alpina is great too. One of the best luxo performance sedans, for sure.

I had the older 3m stuff on my previous 2006 Jeep SRT for about 8 years with no issues or fading. I'm not sure what kind my friend put on my Trackhawk but he has been doing this since the stuff has been available. It work very well and is easy to clean as well as being a self-healing coating. I'd rather have this then get the front end sandblasted through the winter.

There are typically 3 types of people: people who just don’t give a **** and/or care, people who don’t get PPF and end up regretting it (me when I had my old SRT), and people who get PPF as soon as they get a car.

As soon as my TH comes in, I’m having my detail guy come out and correct the paint, the Jeep is going straight to the PPF place to have them install the film, and then the Jeep is going back to my detail guy for ceramic coating.

The amount of rock chips I got on the front of my SRT (I don’t tail gate anyone and I hardly drove in rush hour traffic) was insane.

it’s an expensive vehicle. Spending $2K every 5 or so years to replace the film is very much worth it IF you run into issues - although I’ve had PPF on another car for a decade and it’s still holding up.
