Recently picked up a Cayenne S, living in the midwest, we deal alot with spring patching crews. In order to avoid paint damage from stones, gravel, and road patch, I have been considering a clear bra -paint protection film. Do you have any advice pro/con or recommendations for manufacturer/installers? I am in SE Michigan.

Last night I was reading the CS owners manual and I saw a specific note warning not to apply a stone chip protection film to the headlamps or foglamps. Does anyone have experience with protection film on the CS headlamp/foglamps? The local installer suggested the warning note was prompted by previous generation very thick films which caused the heat buildup to craze the lenses. I definitely would like to avoid that condition!

Thanks for your feedback. My CS is still in the shop waiting for a replacement propshaft...Two days on the road, five days in the shop....

My tt had the 3M film applied since new, without problems. The headlamps and fog lamps have the film, along with the bumper, fenders, hood, door handle cups, door edges and below the gas door. No problems have been observed.

All my prior vehicles had black bras and I will never switch back to that form of protection. This was an excellent choice.

Thanks for the feedback Wingless. I'm scheduled to have the paint protection film applied on April 1st. The local installer has switched from 3M to CP Llumar (sp?) film. I'm having him do the bumper, fenders, hood, door edges, and headlamp & foglamps.

My local installer talked me out of installing the 40mil Xpel headlamp protection, and will be using the stock film.

Thanks again, will let you know how it turns out. I'm happy to have this completed prior to roadpatch season!
