Clear protective wrap

Hi. I have recently purchased a 2009 Boxster 987 Gen 1. Has anyone in the R3 region, used a wrap company to fit a clear wrap to bumper and bonnet area of car? If so could you recommend them and what was the approximate price point?
 
Thanks.

    I used Reep Group in Knaresborough for my GT3 and Macan GTS. Speak to Myles or Stuart if you can.

    I have the same car in Midnight Blue complete with a very few minor stone chips to the front. I have considered a protective wrap for the front and had a word with the fellas at DDB. It seems that this is really good idea if your car is brand new or absolutely flawless, but if you clear wrap paintwork even with a few minor blemishes it can have a similar effect as putting a screen cover on your phone when there are tiny dust particles present. It can look worse rather than better. The advice seems to be to respray before a wrap, which is going to be a very expensive process in relation to the value of a 987. Or, just go for a good polish and accept the small blemishes as part of the patina of age. Hope that helps.   
    On a different note, it's probably worth having the car looked over by D&G as mine was found to have some cylinder scoring in its 3.4 engine, as I've bleated about in other posts, one of the few problems that could beset this car and this has been a very costly but necessary repair.

    Thanks Kevin. I have thought about accepting that small stone chips are just a part of life, however the front is in really good condition, and that is why I want to protect it. My car has only done 24.000 miles so I'm hoping the engine is good for a while yet. I think it would scare me to get the bores checked, just in case. I know head in the sand job. Hope yours is running well now.

    Thanks Kenny, a Porsche owner friend of mine has had a price off this company and it seems more reasonable than some others. So I will be getting in touch.

    Strangely enough its often the lower mileage cars that get problems with IMS and Bore Wear

    Guess they may need regular running
