Help finding a detailer - PPF Ceramic coating and window tint

I requested an online estimate for PPF, ceramic coat and window tint from a premier detailer top rated as far as I can tell and a loaner car is included. $5125

Seems a bit much so I'm looking for suggestions when searching out a reliable detailer to do the work though I do have a problem settling for second best.

XPEL Full Frontal Plus - Front Bumper w/ wrapped edges where possible, Full Fenders w/ wrapped edges where possible, Full hood w/ wrapped edges, Headlights, Mirrors, A-Pillars, Leading roof edge, Rocker Panels & Lower Doors, Rear bumper

XPEL Window Tint PRIME XR

Ceramic Pro Gold Package - ​Lifetime Warranty 4 Layers of 9H 1 Layer of Top Coat 1 Layer of Light on wheel faces 1 Layer of Rain on windshield and front side windows

North central Indiana. I am willing to travel to adjoining states to save money but service must be top notch.

Searching tips would be helpful.

Eclipse tinting in Northern Cincinnati does top notch work.
Just drove my M550i there and had it tinted and full PPF for $2,400 (incl tax).

Ceramic should be no more than $2,000 for a Ceramic Pro Multi-Step Job
Tint - $400-$500
PPF - full front $2,000

I'd say you are paying a little bit of a premium, but if its a good shop and with a loaner, then don't shop too much. You get what you pay for, especially on PPF.
