Just got mine done today at Auto Visions in Edina. Very quality job, custom cut so it covers about 80% of the hood. Very affordable also, $349-$379 for hood, fenders, and mirrors.

Nope, its backed by a lifetime warranty. They will give you instructions on the initial care which is basically not washing the car for a week. Other than that you would treat it as if it werent there, wax it when u wax your car.

I'll have to contact Auto Visions. I can only find an Auto Visions in Eden Prairie. Are these the same place?

Also, has anyone heard of P & L Automotive Inc in Edina? I got quoted what seems like a fairly good price (at least a 3rd under what the dealer wanted).

However, I don't think this covers 80% of the hood, but one could only hope...

Well I just got off the phone with AutoVisions and the guy I talked to sounded like he's very meticulous about his work. I'm definitely going to take my car there to get the job done.

BTW, if anyone is interested, I asked if they could cover my entire car and they can!

I could do $300 for a CR-V bumper/fenders/mirrors with 3M material.

The important thing about 3M installers is whether or not they're 3M certified. A 3M certified dealer can give you a 5 year warranty....a non-certified installer can give you a manufacturer backed 5 year warranty, but it only covers material and NOT labor. So unless they have an in house warranty covering labor you could be SOL. What happens if they go out of business? What happens if you move? A 3M certified installer warranty is nationwide covering both labor and material.

I know that most packages cover bumper, hood, and side mirrors, but what about the middle part between the hood and the bumper that contains the "H" ? I looked at mine and it doesn't seem to be covered by the clearshield, I could be blind lol.

It all depends on what you told them to cover. If someone doesn't specify to have a grill surround done then I'm sure it doesn't get done.

I just ask what you want done and give you a price. I suppose "hood/fender/mirrors" is a package because I do the fenders and mirrors with scrape so really it's pay for the hood get the fender/mirrors free.

But the grill surround isn't attached to the hood and it's not attached to the bumper so I guess it's one of those you have to work it out with your installer ahead of time.
