Best Clear Bra Material and Installation in SoCal

I have a BMW 1 Series M. Looking to get the full hood/fender/bumper/lights/mirrors done. Trying to find an installer that carries a good product and does an amazing job. Seen a lot of clear bra work that looked really bad in regards to bad orange peel and edges poorly trimmed, so I have been wanting to try and get some recommendations from guys that have had work done and are very satisfied. So far in regards to materials im finding the Venture Shield is one of the top pics. Any input on this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for the help in advance L4P.

Give Premier Mobile Group a call in Anaheim. Ask for Kris and he will take good care of you.

In the threads that I have read, these guys seem to be the number one suggested in our area. I will probably be using them as well.

I personally never used them before for their other branch, but my relative did and they were really happy. I've only used Premier in norcal branch and they have always done great work for me.

Aerotect + 1.
Had my Lexus and current M wrapped there.
Good quality, good service at reasonable price.
Their quality work was complimented by the tint place that I went to which also does clear bra installation.

Premier in Anaheim did the bra on my front bumper. Looks perfect as you can't really see it. But they do charge pretty steep prices. Tint including windshield and front bumper bra was almost 2K..

Now that I think about it, I did pay too much. $655 35% tint, $350 73% windshield, $690 clear bra. Tax 132. Total 1827...

I ended up removing my windshield tint (was too dark for my taste), but the quality of work is very good. I usually don't mind paying extra for the great work and quality material, but here I think I went overboard

$655 for tint??????????????? Good god that is crazy. I need to move back out there and install tint full time with that kind of profit margin. And $350 for the windshield? Man they are robbing people out there. Tint is cheap and there are a million tinters out there that do quality work.

Are you also saying your $690 clear bra was for the bumper only?

The rates are very over priced there for PPF and Tint.

I have a local guy that does our cars for 100 with a warranty. Great work, great film, great guy.

$690 sounds steep for front bumper only. It sounds more reasonable for the entire front end coverage. (headlights, bumper, front part of hood, front part of fenders, mirror caps) It's also dependent on whether is a custom cut job or a pre-cut kit install.

Francisco did my front bumper, headlight, and the side rocker panels for $550 which includes the film and labor.
