Contact the selling dealer. I doubt corporate would get involved but you never know. You need to start with who you bought it from. Maybe they’ll pay for it to be replaced. You never know. Good luck!Unfortunately was installed in another state that I purchased the car from. Do I have any recourse with Toyota?
A good quality PPF (such as XPEL) shouldn't yellow or cause any damage. Removal to change and replace will require time and patiences.Hi Guys, I was told that PPF needs to be changed/ refreshed every 2 years or risk it damaging the paint when you want to change it in the future due to damage or yellowing. True or sales tactic?
You do want to replace it periodically but 2 year is very short. The replacing the film such as PPF or Wrap is dependent on many conditions such as Brand of the Film, how often car was driven and driving condition (rain, snow, sun), & Paint (color and brand) as well as storage condition. especially storage condition, whether it's garage stored or under sun light as well as temperature variation could contribute to condition of the film.Hi Guys, I was told that PPF needs to be changed/ refreshed every 2 years or risk it damaging the paint when you want to change it in the future due to damage or yellowing.

I just recently got mine wrapped. It's XPEL, fully wrapped, hand-cut. I checked my car 12 days post pick up. And I've outlined what I have noticed in the link below. I am not sure if these are expected issues since MKV is quite curvaceous and new.Can anyone else who got PPF using Xpel please take a look at your car. I'm seeing a TON of seams, is this because they used the pre-cut kit? I'm in the process of getting a complete wrap done, but I don't know how to proceed now.
This may get by on a back car, but on a white car this looks horrible IMHO. I need to take a better pic of the mirror cap, but ther'es actually something UNDER the film now on the edge after a few hundred miles of driving. I can easily see all the other edges getting dirty as well in a short period of time.
The pic of the roof, I think only that small strip on the roof has been done yet. I picked up the car early as the shop was going to Kentucky to get C8 training. This is not how I envisioned spending $4500 to make my car look like shit.
@XPEL Any thoughts on this?
I see the same thing as mine.Front bumper - why in the world is there a giant V in the pre-cut piece? You can see it's already getting dirty.
The Supra is an extremely difficult vehicle to apply PPF to, especially the front bumper. Things will get better as cutting templates start to come from film manufacturers. I have STEK film, with some of the new Suntek reaction on my mirror caps and pillars. Different film has different attributes- some adheres more easily around edges, some can be stretched more. I have more seams than I’d like as well and with white you can see contaminants collect on them. This is where your installer can lift, clean, and lay it back down if they are good and warrant their work.I see the same thing as mine.
Yes, that’s similar to what is advised by reputable PPF installers here. The film will eventually turn yellow from UV exposure, but may not be as obvious on darker paint colors.Hi Guys, I was told that PPF needs to be changed/ refreshed every 2 years or risk it damaging the paint when you want to change it in the future due to damage or yellowing.
