Default looking for shop to opti coat/clear bra

I'll be receiving my 2013 STi hatch here in a couple of months and I'd like to get it all shiny and protected before I do anything in it.

Wondering if anyone knows of a local (SF) or semi local (bay area) shop that performs the application of these products and does a good professional job.

Thanks in advance for any input.

Try Rob at autoprofilms for the clear bra, he doesn't use a precut kit. He does a custom bra so you have better coverage over your entire bumper and tucks the edges too, for a cleaner look.

I had him do my 13' WRX and it came out great.

www.autoprofilms.com

As for opticoat try Johnny over at Distinctiv Detailing, I just had him detail and apply opti coat to mine today and it came out great. His prices are very reasonable. I opted for opti-Coat pro which is a thicker version of the 2.0

If you're in S.F. there is literally no better person than Jeremy at Invisiguard. He's in the north bay and he does the best work there is... period.

I figure if he's messing with enzo's and things like that I can trust him with my car. He has done 2 for me and he'll be doing my next one as well.

When I bought my wrx he actually drove out to my office in S.F. picked up my car. Took it to his shop. Did the work and brought it back. I didn't have to do anything but give him my cc number. Great experience.

Funny, I was just thinking today I should do this to my car, now I have a few references; any in the South Bay?
