I've looked into this stuff, here in Dayton. 3M protective film. Groovy lookin stuff, if you have the cash! Those prices sound about right. The only problem that I have is that when I spoke to an installer, he said that since I had the silver Ion, that I might notice a difference in the shade. Not everywhere on the car, but in the areas that were treated. I tried my best to pump out of this guy exactly what he was trying to describe, to no avail. It seems that I'm guessing that in these treated areas, one might see a slight darkining of the paint. Or perhaps a difference in shine, which would suck! Either way I'd rather do a little more home work before dropin loot like that on something that might be detrimental to the cars overall appearance. For now, it's touch-up paint and a hell of a lot of wax!
