I've been working so much I haven't really had a chance to give the 3M installation a close inspection. When I picked it up it was dusk outside but everything seemed to look good and I haven't driven my car since. I had a full hood wrap so there a no lines. The only place where I don't like the way it looks is just in front of the rear wheel where they put a small strip which cuts across the body panel and is very noticeable. I'll keep that strip on for the winter but will likely pull it off next summer. The cost was $1,300 which I think is in line for a full front wrap including bumper, mirrors, full hood, part of the rockers and some other small strips in key areas. Apparently the guy who installed it used to be CEO of XPEL which designs the computer cutout patterns for the 3M material. Overall I'm pretty happy with it and will feel much better driving on the interstate and up in the mountains this winter.
