    I was planning to get PPF but when I got in contact with the closest place that does it they were unsure of how it would work with matte paint. They had a matte PPF available but the fact that they seemed unsure of how well it would work, along with the fact that there would be edges on the film made me think about alternatives.

    I found that Gyeon do a matte ceramic coating which I'm now planning on trying out. I had a Gtechniq ceramic on my GT86 and was happy with the protection it provided from the likes of sap and bird poo, but the only thing was the stone chips, no protection from that.

    I was quoted around £4000 for full car PPF, the ceramic would be considerably cheaper and since matte no need to clay or polish before so application should be easy. Might still consider it for the front because of chips but if it is BMW paint it should hopefully be more resistant than the thin GT86 paint.

    Yeah I’m not totally sold on a £4000 wrap looked at the Gyeon Q2 Matt protection aswell, I have contacted a local detailer who uses it to find out if it’s any good.

    Cool, let me know what they think of it once you find out! I've seen positive reviews of their normal Q2 so hopefully the matte will be good as well.

    I did Xpel on my Cayman. I like it so far. Honestly, the biggest difference with a ppf is from the installer, not the film itself. I thought about doing a ceramic coating on top of the ppf and on the rest of the car.

    It's the 18 inch ones for the lower grade version I think.
