Front splitter drops down with 2 13mm nuts removed. Don't remove the badges. They are Ceramic and may break... Or order some new ones just in case

Yes! DO NOT remove the badges. That does not sound good. Ferrari wraps with Scuderia badges go around and do a nice tight tuck into the detent in the fender. A level edge should be fine, like the hood badges too.

You wrap whole car, just to A-pillar, or something less?

I did what my detail guy called his "Track Wrap"....what was done was the following
Entire front clip of the car(Hood, Bumper, Splitter, Fenders)
Side view mirrors, doors and lower fascias on doors
Rear quarters were done and wrapped around the wheel-wells....
roof was not done & trunk/rear bumper were not done.

I wrapped the whole thing. Don't remove the badges. I did remove the "Giulia" badge on the back (because it looks way more awesome IMHO). My guys dropped the chin spoiler and wrapped it.

+1 on the track wrap MDriver mentioned. I did my hood too, since the wrap protects from bird poo (and I wasn't sure how the painted CF hood would deal with that).

Get a ceramic OptiCoat on top of the clearbra. So choice.

My detailer/PPF installer said he removed the badges.

I went with the track wrap as well (but they did some of the trunk area in addition to all the areas mentioned above) -- and it was coated with Crystal Serum Ultra and then again with Exo v3.

I had the wheels taken off and ceramic coated as well. Here's hoping to a lot less brake dust with the non-CB.

Interesting that they took the wheels off to ceramic coat them...not sure why that is necessary. My wheels were ceramic coated too; maybe they did take them off. Don't know.

On the brake dust point, I still get a lot of dust but very easy to rinse off with a non pressurized garden hose. At least to 90% clean anyway.

Hey I have a Vulcano QV on the way too and I think I also want to go with the carbon fiber V on the front (saw your post in another thread), do you have any recent pictures you can share? I'd like to see that a$$ without the Giulia badge too.

Badges do not need to come off. A wrap can be so good that photographers will zoom in on your hood badge to show the beautiful clean seam between, badge, paint and wrap around the rectangular Ferrari badge on the front hood/trunk. Seriously, I have seen that at least twice on my car at shows. Don't get lazy when waxing. Clean up the edges ;)

Sal Scotto,

Removing the badges is an extra step that some installers like to add. Doing this makes the film nearly undetectable around emblems and gives it a nice clean finish. We do badge removal all the time on higher end cars like Ferraris and McLarens. Wrapping the splitter is absolutely a great idea as it can get beat up from rocks and stones while driving down the highway.

I see you folks are an official vendor now. I had your products installed by Larry Kosilla at Ammo NYC. I had a rock pierced right thru the clear bra (XPEL ultimate). Have you folks ever seen that?

Does anyone know how the badges are affixed? Assuming they are taped on, but not sure...

My detailer removed and reinstalled badges when he did a full wrap (STEK DYNOShield) on my QV. They were glued not taped.

My detailer said he PPF’d a bunch of QV’s and removed the badges on all of them, mine as well. You can’t tell my car’s front is wrapped and a super clean install. The badges have pins on the back so they aren’t just at the mercy of adhesive/glue if that's really the case:
