ATTENTION TESLA OWNERS!
Is Paint Protection Film (PPF) Really Worth It?
Find Out Why Even Tesla Recommends Using PPF!
If you’re a proud owner of a Tesla, you likely understand the importance of keeping your sleek and high-tech vehicle in pristine condition. One way to ensure your Tesla maintains its stunning appearance and resale value is by considering the installation of paint protection film (PPF). PPF, often referred to as clear bra or clear film, is a transparent automotive coating that acts as a shield against a variety of potential hazards on the road. Here are a few compelling reasons why you should seriously consider installing PPF on your Tesla.
Additionally, the resale value of your Tesla can benefit significantly from PPF installation. Prospective buyers are often willing to pay a premium for a well-maintained vehicle, and PPF can be a persuasive selling point. It demonstrates that you’ve taken proactive steps to protect your Tesla, which can make it more attractive to potential buyers and lead to a higher resale price.
Bra paint protection film, also known as a clear bra, is a thin, clear film that is applied to the surface of a vehicle. This film provides a barrier between your vehicle’s paint and the external environment, protecting it from damage caused by debris, rocks, and other environmental hazards.
With new Tesla vehicles, we have seen brand new paint jobs already stained with water spots and etching. Bird droppings eat away at the paint immediately, leaving etching and surface damage. Debris on the road, such as rocks, gravel, and road debris, can impact the side mirrors and cause chips, cracks, and scratches. Acid rain can cause even new paint jobs to become dull, discolored, and eventually erode away, leaving the surface metal exposed.
Not only is the paint soft and vulnerable to chemical attacks, the paint easily chips and is more susceptible to rock chip damage on the front bumpers and hood. Every Tesla model faces the same challenges that car owners have always faced-maintaining the painted surfaces of their vehicles.
While regular car washing and waxing can help to maintain your Tesla’s appearance, there are still environmental factors that can cause damage to your paint. To protect your Tesla from wear and tear, we first recommend installing the Paint Protection Film on areas vulnerable to rock chips.
If you are a commuter or a freeway driver, damage to the front bumper will be accelerated. There is no other product better suited to solving this problem. Second, for chemical attacks such as bird droppings, tree sap, or water spots, we highly encourage Ceramic Coatings. Graphene Coating is a fantastic option to improve your vehicles protection. The coatings act like another clear coat on the car that’s designed for the challenges faced by Tesla owners.
As premier bra installers, we specialize in Xpel Ultimate Plus, a self-healing film that is designed to protect against scratches, chips, and other types of damage to the paint of your vehicle. In addition to its protective properties, XPEL Ultimate Plus is also designed to be virtually invisible once applied, providing a sleek and glossy appearance that enhances the look of a vehicle. Xpel clear bra is easy to maintain and can be washed and waxed just like the rest of the vehicle.
PPF is a clear, durable film that protects the paint from rock chips & road debris. It acts as a protective barrier between your paint job and rocks or bugs heading towards your car at 70MPH. When it collides, the film absorbs the impact. Originally designed for military application, is had been redesigned or cars.
We install XPEL ULTIMAE PLUS PPF. It’s perhaps the best film in the industry. The warranty ensures the film will not peel, bubble or discolor for 10 YEARS. If ever a customer has a warranty job the replacement is free, simple as that. What is DOESN’T cover, for example, is collision damage. The film is very durable, but it can’t withstand everything.
No, in fact, you can have the film removed at any time for any reason. However, the adhesive is strong enough to stay in place on the car for many years. It doesn’t damage the paint or cause discoloring from sun fading.
It will require the same normal washing, decontamination and waxing that the vehicle’s paint job should get. Most owners’ manuals show how to care for your car’s paint. We recommend keeping up on routine waxing at least every 6 months if not more. For easier maintenance, we HIGHLY recommend applying one of our ceramic coatings over the film for maximum protection.
