    Clear Protection Film

    Has anyone got this on their facelift S3 to prevent chips?

    I want this on my car and I have been searching everywhere but cant find any people who have the facelift kits made.

    Most Companies will make a bespoke kit up for you, as they then have the patterns for future use.

    I had my C4S done by Defendall in Perth...they had to make various patterns for that, but did so, and did a cracking job of applying it.

    I've had Defendall on for over 4 years now and have NO stonechips at all...and perhaps only 5 or 6 'nicks' in the film where stones have torn it. I'm planning to have a few small areas replaced by them soon just to tidy the film up...but overall, a good product and a decent Company to deal with.

    I think the blokes name is John...I'm sure if you phone them they'll offer to do your car and make the patterns as they go.

    Its actually changed quite a bit, more noticable when you got to www. ventureshield.com then do a search on the patterns.
