Hey Phil are did you remove the BMW roundel and grills to lay the film underneath the roundel and wrap inside the area where the grills are ?
Just interested as I was told the film wouldn't settle where the roundel is as the it's too deep
Thx !!

we did not remove the roundel.

we use to do all that but to be honest most customers will not pay for the added work.

at least not in our area.

Thanks Phil !!
I'd pay for it if it's possible to lay the film underneath the roundel/grills...
But I may be a little far away
