Chrome delete, tint, protection film, and ceramic coat

I just picked up my car after getting 3M Crystalline window tint 50 all the way around and 70 on the windshield. Also got about half the car wrapped with Xpel Ultimate PPF and then the entire car coated with Opticoat Pro+. Lastly, I had the chrome trim pieces wrapped with gloss black. We'll see how it all holds up, but it's not cheap to keep this beast protected from the elements and rock chips.

Did you have the front grill wrapped in gloss black? I'm debating if I should order the front grill / side badges or have them wrapped. Not sure how much it would cost to wrap them but I know the shawdowline front grill / side marker combo is $300.

Looks awesome! The gloss black F90 M Performance front grill and side vent is a must-have

Yes, the grill, side badges, and door handle trim pieces were all wrapped in gloss black for $300.

Incredible color. Great looking car. Looks like Aragon leather, great combination. Confused, you said you had the PPF done and then the ceramic coat. Doesn't ceramic need to bond to paint. Thanks
