Clear Bra Installed in Germany?

Does anyone know of a good installer? I'm in the Stuttgart area but don't mind traveling a few hours. I'd rather have it done by someone I know does a decent job through "word of mouth", than take a chance of paying somone to screw it up.

I know ABC Auto Glass in K-town does it but don't know anyone who had it done there. TIA -

I'm in graf. 3M authorized and trained PPF installer. I run a shop back in the US but I do on occasion do installs for friends. I personally wrap all my vehicles. Give me a PM and maybe we can figure something out.

3M is close to Pforzheim ( Göbrichen I believe ) but IŽll be leaving to Frankfurt to have my M3 done by a specialist who is renouned for his work.
Price is high but weŽll see if worth it, IŽm very particulate and an accuracy fanatic when it comes to stuff like this so...
Pics will follow on Easter Monday or whenever the weather is good.

Hello,
did you ever get your M3 done. I would be interested, I live in Wiesbaden and I'm looking for a wrap specialist. I'm also interested in the Vinyl wrapping if you know a shop that can do great job. Thanks.

Piotr

Go to the Venture Shield site & look for installers then compare. Had mine done by AP Druck. He does full wraps too -

Thanks!

Thanks for the tip!

How did yours turn out? Would you recommend them? How much did it run you?

I just wrapped the entire front end of an E92 M3. The roundel is stuck in the hood much harder than previously. also i would like to find out who designed the side gills! talk about a major PITA to get them out cleanly. European installers charge about double the price. Bumper alone was quoted at 1500€. also be careful, I just rewrapped another car that had a wrap done by a local ventureshield installer. they used razor to cut relief cuts (not needed) and trim the film….scratched his paint by cutting too deep!

Dang

If it's going to be 1500 Euro for just the bumper, I may have to wait till I get it back to the States. Since I'll only be driving it for about 3 months out of the next 12 until I move (due to deployment), I guess I may just have to wing it.

On the other hand, being OCD, I will kick myself if something happens that could have been prevented.

^^^Nah, just touch it up when you get back and then do the bra. Piece of cake.

I think I paid less than 1500 Euro for everything. Fenders, full hood, bumper, lights, mirrors, rockers, rear bumper shelf, & behind both rear wheels. I was getting chips way too easy. After I had it installed, a car in front of me kicked up some rocks & dirt on the autobahn. Thought for sure I'd be damaged, but couldn't see where they hit. Very relieved.

Moxie,

Where did you get yours done? What kind of film did you get? Happy with the installation?

Thanks!

I'm happy with it. I had it done here ^^ cause they were close. Dropped it off Sunday morning & picked it up Monday after work. You have to get right up on it to notice it & and that's only if you are looking for it. Looks perfect in sun, under my garage flouresant lights I can see a stretched area when I look for it. Again, if you were'nt looking for it, you wouldn't notice it. I had to go back after a couple months to have a couple edges touched up while I waited. I went with unwrapped edges as I was told wrapped edges will eventually come up. The edges collect dirt, but they are easy enough to clean.

Moxie, that link is not working.

Got my first big rock chip today and interested in doing a 3m wrap (I'm in Holland but will drive for quality work). Has that link moved?

Does anyone do a full clear wrap which is invisible? I asked a few shops around here in Belgium, but they only do color wraps...
