XPEL Installers Sydney

I am pretty sure I am going to wrap my BSM M2C in XPEL stealth when it arrives, although I am still struggling with the cost.

Does anyone have any recommendations for XPEL installers in Sydney? There seems to be a few available, but I always like a word of mouth recommendation if someone has gotten a full car PPF install done before.

The one that was mentioned to me was PROvinyl but havent checked them out however they did my mates Velar which looks pretty good . There is also ozicozi which has good reviews but a small premises when visited and not super clean.

I don't think you are going to get any change from 4K for a full wrap.

Let us know who decide on

Thanks Mr Rizk, I had seen PROvinyl but it appears they only do 3m PPF and not XPEL and I am pretty keen on the XPEL stealth look.

I will keep doing some digging and let you know what I decide on.

I went to both ProVinyl & Ozicozi (both use Suntek) and found Ozicozi to be a cleaner working space than ProV and so went with Ozicozi, the job they did on my car is pretty much perfect.

I've had 2 cars wrapped at Ozi Cozi. Andrew is a very easy guy to deal with. Turn around is also quick. If you have any issues with the ppf he would happily replace it to your standards.However they use suntek not xpel. A cheaper film to keep it close to your budget.

Thanks for the feedback guys, so far I have narrowed it down to OziCozi and Sydney Premium Detailers.

I will keep you posted

So interestingly OziCozi have advised me against doing a Matte PPF wrap to go from gloss to matte. They apparently won't do it as the edges can't be wrapped around and generally customers wont be happy with the results.

Andrew was super helpful and very honest which I appreciated, although I am not left with my plans up in the air...

I agree with what they are saying regarding the line as it does stop short about 2mm. May look like a tron car with a line highlight

About not being able to wrap the edges seems a bit harder to swallow as all original PPF installs where corner wrapped is my understanding. Not to do it seems as the path of least resistance for the install complexity. Ie not a patterned install.

Also considering Xpel - any concerns with the edges getting stained from picking up debris over time? Could really make the PPF edges stand out - especially those that can't be tucked away.

Maybe consider a matte/satin black wrap which would offer the same effect as the Xpel stealth? The coloured wraps still offer protection to your paint although are slightly thinner if I remember (something like 70 microns v 100 microns avg of PPF)

Satin black looks cool AF
