3M film on the front bumper and hood. Within 6 months (6,000 miles) had two pencil eraser sized dings in and through the ppf. I personally won't do ppf again - just not worth it in my eyes.

No PPF here!

But, if I didn't wrap it, I would have PPF. Heck I'm considering putting PPF over the front bumper cover. Wrap is thinner than PPF.

PPF is worth it IMO. Won't save you from everything but will prevent most rock chips

80% of my mileage is freeway, and with the last few vehicles Iíve owned the front bumper has looked like a golf ball after 2 years.

My new-to-me M2 came with 9k miles, which I can only assume was mostly city driving, since there were just 2 small chips on the front. First thing I did was pick up some touch up paint, fill the chips, and the car is coming back from PPF tomorrow (suntek ultra).

If you donít do much freeway driving, or live in place that doesnít have winter, I probably wouldnít bother. I want to keep this thing mint though and with my climate and driving I donít think Iíll regret the PPF.
