100% disagree with "Nothing will protect against rock chips or scratches". Most PPF applications today have self healing properties that allow minor scratches be repaired with heat (think hair dryer). The film I have, STEK DynoShield, is self healing, and if someone takes a screwdriver to my car it will destroy the film, but there's a very good chance the paintwork underneath is ok or would need a 1-2 stage correction, but not a re-spray. You start pitting a front end with rock chips, no good detailer can repair that. I'd rather pit the PPF and be able to tear it off than destroy my paint.
