I think he use pre cut for most of the car except for the front and back bumpers. Those needed to be custom cut.

The pictures were taken before he put the badges back on. I prefer the badges on there too!

Thank you for your reply.

On the pre-cut pieces, don't you see the original paint on the edges ?

I have seen at my detailer a car protected with Xpell Stealth and you could notice the original paint on the edges, I know that the film was pre-cut.
The pre-cut pieces are actually a little bit smaller than the part they are covering.

By te way, your car looks incredible!

i have pre cut on my pre-lci and they overlap the edges by about 1/4". I drove around for about a week to allow the film to fully cure in the sun and shrink if needed and then came back and he trimmed the overlap.

Don't think they've released the precut for the LCI front bumper yet from a few threads i was following a month ago but that may have changed now. But i will say for the satin look you can't use precut on those bumpers because they pre cut splits in it to accommodate the sharp angles and the original paint shows. Good on your installer to do it custom! and gorgeous look and imo the only way to go for the satin look. frozen paint is just too risky for a non lease car!

and agree, leave the badges off!

I personally own a Frozen Arctic Grey M5, and with a good ceramic coat everything goes well.

I didn't want the Xpell Stealth because of the pre-cut film.
Seeing the edges of the film would drive my OCD nuts!
