How PPF saved me from a door panel repaint on my Mahindra XUV 700

Total cost of replacing the PPF, just Rs. 2,000 including labour.

Importance of PPF

Got a nasty scratch on the rear right side, probably some biker brushed against in traffic. The impact was enough to penetrate and tear through the PPF.

After replacing that door's PPF -- as good as new! The damage didn't reach the paint and PPF totally saved the original paint and prevented a paint job.

Here's what BHPian madnish30 had to say on the matter:

Any paint peel? That's a common criticism that when one removes a well settled PPF the paint comes off with it. I am on the fence for PPF.

Here's what BHPian smartomotive had to say on the matter:

This looks good and I've been thinking of getting it done too.

However, recently I got the panel painting done for the right side of the bumper which had a fair bit of scratches due to a minor accident and it cost me about 4k (the actual painting was 2.9k, just taxes + washing they included).

And while I thought it'll look like a patch after it's done, I was surprised to see the finishing done (very clean job, no one can tell repainting is done ever).

So after this experience, I'm thinking what other benefits would a PPF provide considering you can get the repainting done wherever required and no need to spend upfront.

P.S. Mine's Midnight Black, So the scratches were quite big and visible
