    GLWS, the car is in immaculate condition. I would buy it in a heartbeat if I were looking to own a 2nd Type R.

    I plan protecting the whole car with paint protection film when I get one and if a car is ceramic coated the PPF won’t adhere to the paint properly. Which makes it really difficult to install PPF

    My Type R is ceramic coated and I had XPEL PPF applied afterwards without issue. Ceramic is more of a UV, oxidation and water repellent with some anti-scratch benefits but will not protect from stone chips.

    That said, PPF is not bullet proof to preventing stone chips. They can still happen if the PPF does not wrap the edges of the panels. Also note, I had Suntek and XPEL PPF on my cars and stones and road debris still managed to damage the PPF and put tiny divots in my plastic bumper(paint okay but looked like a golf ball in a few places).

    So if you plan on spending $2000-3000 or more on putting PPF on your entire car, think twice. You may be better off saving money and using to fix what PPF was advertised to protect but did not.

    I’m a PPF installer so I know all about it. XPel is the most aggressive film on the market. With that being said your Coating must not be that high of quality, the higher quality ceramic coating the more difficult it is to install the PPF. The coating keeps the PPF from adhering to the paint and makes it to where you can peel off the PPF without even trying.
    Also when you put PPF on top of ceramic coating you lose the hydrophobic properties of the coating. By putting it on top of the PPF it helps it last longer
