Ceramic Pro or PPF - 2020 M5 Lease

Hey guys. Happy Holidays and New Year!

I am hoping everyone can give me their opinion so I can make an informed decision...

I am taking delivery of my 2020 BMW M5 in BSM. It arrived in port yesterday and I'll probably get to pick it up week of Jan 6th after it gets some CF pieces installed at the port.

I know I am not going to keep my car after the lease, but I want to protect my car, keep it looking great and minimize cleaning and maintenance. I am located in NY and it's always difficult with bad weather and terrible roads.

I was considering 3 different options:

1. Full PPF
2. PPF Front and rear bumpers and Ceramic Coat the rest of the car
3. Ceramic Coat the entire car

Pricing I got from Phenominal Vinyl in Long Island for the 3 Options:

1. $5,500
2. $2,500
3. $1,500


This is my build:

2020 BMW M5
Black Sapphire Metallic
Full Black Merino Leather
Executive Package
Driving Assistance Plus Package
Bowers & Wilkins Sound System
Carbon Fiber Kidney Grills
Carbon Fiber Side Grills
Carbon Fiber Pro Rear Spoiler

Planned Mod List:

IND Painted Front Reflector Delete
IND Painted Rear Reflector Delete
GlossBlack Exhaust Tip change
Gloss Black M5 Trunk Logo Swap
Mode Carbon Carbon Fiber Trophy Rear Diffuser
Window Tint (thinking 30%)

Why would do this on a car you're not going to keep?

Why not?

Car's protected and super easy to maintain .. additionally no rock chips or damage to exposed areas of the car.

I can't speak for anyone else but in my case, I like my cars to look as perfect as possible, so this was a no brainer for me despite the fact it is a lease.

PPF is not cheap but neither is the car. If you have the financial means, and are particular about your cars go for it.

Life's short ..

I ended up going with the full PPF. Being done right now!

Good call, I have a 2020 lease and decided to put some protection on the car. I didn't want to spend too much so I did XPEL PPF on the front bumper, hood, roof, side mirrors and front quarters then ceramic across the whole thing.

Figured I would protect the areas most likely to see damage and then ceramic to make cleaning easy. Love it, cost 3800 and they did an amazing job.
