I'm going to install XPEL headlight protection kit, and wondering what do you guys think on bumper and hood protection kits? Is it worth it? How well it hold up over the years? <p>p.s. If I go for it, I'll go to the local dealer. I did headlights once there and guy did very good job. I also did one install myself (S70 headlights) and I know I'll go to professional next time. <p>

Re: (Chilled Man)

I did it on my S60r. Takes a little while, but it is a DIY job.

Repaints OK

I recently had the front bumper of my S6 covered after replacing the original US bumpers with Euro bumpers. It was a custom job since there were no templates for Euro bumpers, and they did not get it right the first time. I took it back and had it redone properly - no problems with the paint whatsoever, which had cured for 6 month.
