Cost to clear bra 05 Elise? Portland, OR

I am looking to apply a quality clear bra to my 05 Elise in Portland, OR. What should I look to spend? 503 Motoring quoted $2500 for the front clam, mirrors and rear rockers. I know they do excellent work and use top grade materials, but that seems high. Any input in appreciated.

Thanks!

Local shop in my area charges $800 for front clam, $2500 is way too much...

$950 for mine (most of front clam, mirrors, rocker panels) and they did a great job.

Watched a few YouTube vids and did mine myself using precut ppf. Did it all for under 400.

I had mine done a few years ago for $800. Front clam(everything except above the wheels), access panels, and rockers.

I paid $3000 for a full wrap of my 2011 Exige S260 F.E. ... I believe what you want done should be under a $1000

I'm interested in a local PDX option as well.
I had called 503 motoring and they want $400 for just the rockers, and that does only include the application of new xpel film.
Removal of the current clear bra would be on top of that.

If I die, my biggest fear is that my wife sells all my toys for the price I told her I bought them for...

For precut pieces, you can go directly to Xpel.com and enter in your car info. When I had my daily driver coated, they charged me based on the Xpel precut pricing because they used the routes, even though the material used was Suntek. This will give you a good idea how much the pieces should cost, then find a place with decent labor rates. For my BMW 3 series, I paid about $760 total for all front faces, including headlights and mirrors. This was in Waukesha WI. Hope that helps others with figuring out what the job should cost.
