I do this about every other month......from Pa to Vermont......just a quick summary: Got 24mpg.....tranny is still a bit a jerky when cold, the front end caught a huge amount of bug splat....some have called the huge grill structure a "cow catcher" .....don't know about cows but I spent 3 hours removing spring bug guts today! Adaptive cruise worked beautifully! ...and people do move out of the way when they see that massive front end approaching?

I do the same driving every month at least 940 miles. That's why I had an xpel ultimate installed. Makes it easy to scrub those bugs. 500-540 mile range.

I'm also planning on get xpel ultimate installed on the whole front. Do you mind sharing how much you paid for it? the guy here is quoting me $750.

Thanks!, I see there are different rates for full hood/partial hood and full fender/partial fender. Did you went with full or partial?
It's only partial hood and fender with the xpel and warranty.

We went with a full front wrap ( hood, fenders and front) with all door handle pockets and top half of doors for $1100. Learned the hard way on a prior vehicle - day 3 wife got caught behind a dump truck on the interstate...hauling gravel without the cover on.
