What is the installation time like for the XPEL coating - is it hours, days? I admit I literally never heard of it before but this thread and their site make it seem pretty great.

I left my car a the installer for about 3 days. The first day he super cleaned it and inspected for any paint correction, next 2 days were install then last half of last day was inspection and clean again under the sun. Not sure if that is a typical timeframe or not, but this was a single installer who also had other cars in his shop at the time (one of them a very nice porsche carrera)

Mine had mine for a week. That includes the clean, full install, ceramic coat and tint though.

Dropped off Monday, picked up Friday, they did not have to paint correction. This was full nose PPF, tint and ceramic.

Do not do the ceramic, waste of money. They did Xpel ceramic and it was gone in 9 months.
