    Hi guys, any recommendation? Open to both suntek or xpel installer. No precut guys. Thanks

    I’d recommend Enthusiast Details in Mamaroneck.

    While I believe they do good work on repair an body work (based on othe rpeople's feedback as I have never used them in the past), I didn't know they do ppf.

    Check out my experience with Bradan and search for others that have posted about the issues they had with them.
    Use at your own risk.

    Bradan is as solid as they come - he's done literally months and hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of work for me across 2 dozen cars (everything from f40 to LR4) and i've never had a quality issue. he brought my F40 from perfect to platino.

    Sorry about what happened with your car but what does PPF have to do with your experience? I have had a 550 Barchetta and a 612 serviced by them and I was extremely satisfied with their job. BTW, one of the very well know detailers on Long Island installed PPF on my Carrera GT. I had to take my car back to him 3 times because after a few weeks the film started peeling and coming off. After a while I gave up going back to him because it was such a waste of time.

    It has to do with paying attention to detail when any type of work is being done....especially when a lack of attention can wind up getting someone killed as happened to me.
    It also has to do with how a company handles a problem when it arises....that's what separates the men from the boys.
    Sadly, they failed terribly with me and others in this aspect too, as evidenced by the dozen PM's I received in support of my claim.
    For others reading this.....USE AT YOUR OWN RISK.

    Im sorry you had a bad experience but you are the exception and not the rule. Everyone makes mistakes and dan has always been a stand up guy to me and many others. Use at your own risk is a bit extreme.

    At least you won't be killed by a mistake they make applying PPF which is more than I can say about having them touch the car for anything more substantial.
    Unfortunately the dozen or so folks who PM'ed me about similar "mishaps" they encountered with Bradan are understandably reluctant to post about it publically.
    The fanboys who Dan has called upon to support him have no such reluctance so logic would dictate that you take their testimony with a grain of salt.
    For whoever is reading this thread ( and the one I posted in another section ) the ultimate decision is obviously your own....but ask yourself if it's worth the risk of having to deal with a nightmare like mine when there are plenty of other honest, experienced and reputable companies in the area to choose from. I wish you the best of luck with whatever you decide.

    Dan did not reach out to me - i texted him last night letting him know about ur slandering post. If 12 people PMed you thats worth zero because you cld and are probably making that up. Is your friend who referred you still using dan?

    Sure it is. The op asked where to get ppf. Bradan is fully competent.

    Cant say anything about Braden but I can comment on economics and incentives.

    Several hundred thousand in service... in general, service for top tier customers regardless of market segment is a very typical of what a lower tier person may expect is all.

    Every shop in nj has people who have issues ive read them, sometimes its real sometimes its expectations.

    None of them are incompetent. Issue's happen its how the shop deals with it.

    Several inexcusable screw ups pertaining to my experience with a poor attempt at a cover up (one being potentially fatal ) negates all the fancy "smoke and mirror" pictures the fan boys elect try to cover it up with.
    For anyone interested a quick search will reveal my situation was not unique in that many others have also had issues with Bradan......'nuff said.

    Couldn't care less about your F40.....doesn't impress me but apparently your entire identity revolves around it since you feel compelled to keep bringing it up.
