As vehicle detailers and Xpel PPF installers based in Hampshire, one of the questions people often ask us is, How much does PPF cost? And it’s a fair question! Because if you’ve been researching PPF installation options, there’s a fair chance a few of your Google results will have shown some eye-watering costs. But, here’s the good news… It doesn’t have to be that way.
Of course, costs can be higher if you’re looking at full car coverage or you have an unusual car that requires bespoke patterns. But, the great thing about PPF is you can find a cost-effective solution to cover the most vulnerable parts of your vehicle. Read on for some options that might suit you if you want excellent vehicle protection but don’t have a four-figure budget.
How much does PPF cost?
We believe in being upfront and transparent about costs. But, because every client and car that comes through our Hampshire detailing studio doors is unique, it’s difficult to list all prices on our website.
Nevertheless, we have some indicative costs for different types of coverage HERE.
But, many clients want to protect the areas of their car that they see as most susceptible to damage, and that’s when we come up with a bespoke solution.
PPF coverage options for vulnerable areas:
Here are a few examples of how we can help you discover the benefits of PPF on an entry-level budget.
A barrier for bumpers:
PPF protection across your bumper can cost as little as £75. This installation will stop you from scraping the top of the back bumper with luggage or the dog damaging it when it jumps in and out. It’s also significantly more cost-effective than paying £350 for the bumper to be repainted!
Defence for door sills:
A small strip of PPF to a door sill or another vulnerable place might start at £40 or £50. Similarly, this can be a significant cost-saving if you consider the greater costs of repairing damaged areas.
Saving stone guards:
We often change the stone guard pieces on cars like Porsche 911s or BMW M2 and M3 models, replacing them with larger than factory pieces. Applying PPF here protects the area between the back of the door and the front of the rear wheel arch. These areas would otherwise get covered in gravel rash.
There’s hope for headlights:
We can offer bumper and headlight only installs from £400-£500. These areas are the most vulnerable and, consequently, often the most repainted part of a car. So, this is a good option if a whole front-end install is out of your budget.
Case Study – Morgan Plus 4:
This month we welcomed a somewhat unusual vehicle to our Hampshire studio. A Morgan Plus 4.
We completed a partial front-end PPF installation. However, we also needed to repair some scratches on the sills. This type of damage, from the heel of a shoe, is difficult to avoid when getting in and out of the car. However, by installing some reasonably small but essential strips of PPF, we can stop it from happening again.
