That's interesting. It was going to cost me about $1700 for the "full" treatment - there was no mention of SunTek though and my car is Mythos Black. Wow - no way I would pay that much for something good for only 5 years. The way I looked at it was very simple - over 10 years of driving every day to work and back plus some travel, etc my Mini had only a few front end hits that required some touch up. There's no way I would have gotten $1800 of value out of a protection package. My only concern is that with the Q3 we will probably use my car as well as my wife's Outback to go cross country skiing. Mini didn't do that duty. So there's a little additional risk there of getting some damage from road "sanding" tossed up on the highway. I just couldn't stomach $1700 for what I would call "insurance" against the damage being significant enough to justify that cost.
Is it really $1800 for Suntek? If so, I would be leery also esp. since there isn't much personal knowledge initially about it.
That said, I am also suspicious about some of these warranty claims.
The biggest thing for me is the hassle factor to take advantage of any "insurance" on accessories you might install on the car.
I learned the hard way that my wheel coverage on our prior Merc could only be used if the wheel could allow the tire to hold air.
Curb rash & or cracked wheels may not create the conditions above i.e. a very narrow set of insurable window.
Not to mention the time it takes to get these things resolve.
So on a 10 year warranty, yes Xpel has been around a long time & their product is top notch...but will your installer still be around to do any repair work?
Good installer is still the key for me.
And knowing they will be there to support any bubble repairs or full re-install is more important than the actual product use.
