clearbra install in the area

thinking about getting a clearbra put on my brand new AW/FR M3 and was wondering if anybody could recommend a shop/person to do the install.

i'm looking at either 3m or ventureshield and would like the whole front end (full bumper, full hood, full fenders, headlights, and side mirrors) done. also looking for a 10+ to lifetime warranty on materials and labor.

my dealer said they could do half the hood and fenders, full bumper and headlights, and side mirrors for $895 (and they'll give me a loaner for the day ). i'm thinking if i ask them to do the full hood and fenders i'll be easily over $1k.

Try this place. Its right over the NJ state line into Rockland County. Thinking of getting on from them as well. they are a bit cheaper but they need 2 days and no loaner.

Yea, I don't know. I'm not going to put one on my AW car though. I don't really worry about a couple of rock chips. I figure if it gets bad in a few years I'll just repaint my bumper or hood.

The way you go through parts you prob never have to repaint. +1 On not putting a clearbra on AW though.

decided i'm not going to do the clearbra. if it turns yellow (which from what i hear it will eventually), it will just annoy the crap out of me and to add insult to injury...i'll know i paid $1k+ for something i might end up taking off in the long run.

thanks for all the input guys...

what color is your e92? i would've done it already but i decided i'm not going to anymore since a lot of the feedback recommends not to do it since i have AW and it'll just yellow over time.

Yes I had it done there a little over a year ago. The film held up extremely well, and it looks like the first day I had it installed. $900 is about the same price I paid for the pieces you mentioned.
Call them up and they will fax you a sheet, so you can indicate which pieces to be done. Their pricing is a-la-carte.

How hard is it to get it done yourself? if you have a garage it should not be a problem at all....they send you all tools you need to install it yourself....

Don't do it yourself. I got my clearbra done at Detailing Dynamics and I HIGHLY recommend them.
