I live in California and I always rent BMW car ( so no more than 3 years) . I always refuse all these protections as I believe are not “protecting “ more than a “ wax” you can buy in every store…

Taking delivery hopefully mid-July (at port now), planning on full PPF, like some sort of satin finish (gray, midnight purple, etc). I ordered white for production. Planning to drive the car a LOT (>30k miles/year) and keeping the car a while so yeah, worth it. Full PPF is $5-10k properly done so may not be worth it for the leasers.

I talked to my sales guy and basically since there are no lease specials on the iX, the residuals are in the 40% range which means leases at 36mo/10k are in the $1700-1800 range. Financing is the only way most dealerships will give you the $7500 federal tax credit (they were nicer pre-pandemic/chip shortage and would share it on leases), so I’m financing and PPF makes sense.

I will be keeping my iX for a long time, garaging it at home, barely driving 3-5k miles/annually, would this keep the exterior in awesome shape(color = Blue Ridge Mountain Metallic) - would anyone feel is worth the cost of a full coat XPEL wrap? Did I read the posting from vinsanity correct, $5k-$10k? Is the type of process or material makes the cost double???
