Clear protective stuff

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

I will hopefully be picking up my 997 C2S (Seal Grey on Black) tomorrow! I can't wait.

I noticed a lot of the cars at the dealer had a thin plastic protective system installed, near wheel wells, headlights, etc, to protect from chipping and such. I asked the dealer what this went for, and they said $1595, but I can do it for $900. This sounds quite expensive to me!

- Is this worth it? Seems so, but curious about others' experience?

- Is $900 around the going rate for this, or am I getting shafted here?

Thanks!

that is about the rate for a full coverage job. all parts front and rear, mirrors wheel openings etc. but the problem is most installers suck so be sure they use a good one.

I personally don't like it as I think it takes away from the car. A few rock chips are part of the Porsche experience and don't detract from the car overall as far as I am concerned. I don't like clear plastic covers on the lamp shades in the house either. But if someone feels a need for this, they can certainly do it.
