M3 Frozen White Clear Bra Installed

I brought my car to Leeberbs (see page on FB) in Hillsborough NJ to have a Suntek Matte Film installed on my front bumper and rocker panels. Before I chose this film, we compared a sample of Xpel Stealth matte film after a couple recommendations from this forum. Suntek blended better under the fluorescent light and sunlight hands down. I am so happy that I am going back to have the full hood done. Lee is the best installer for these protective films that I am aware of and these results speak for themselves.

Here are some pics showing how the front bumper blends with unprotected hood along with the rocker panels blending with the doors.

Love it. Now throw some 15/12 spacers on there to really set it off

I went 18/15 but i'm on 220's and it made a huge difference.

I had the same type of clear bra and looks great. I have no idea why some people put the clear bra that goes only halfway up their hood. I saw a few the other day and it looks awful. The full hood is an awesome thing to do. It really repels absolutely everything with a light layer of sealant on top and never get bugs or anything.

Looks Perfect. Glad it all worked out for you. I know you were really concerned about keeping the finish looking new and looks like you found the perfect match along with the perfect installer. Great review.
