I got a small tear 5cm wide in the PPF on the front bumper yesterday; cause is unknown. Paint seems to be fine, so the PPF did it’s job. I’ll call the installer tomorrow, but in the meantime, how should I temporarily patch this up?

I can't see the attachment, but I imagine you can use just about anything around the house , i.e. regular non-perm tape like layers of scotch tape or blue tape. If you have no shame, I'd just slap a bit of duct tape on it and draw a smiley face on it. I'd do the last thing. :)

I reattached the photo. I’ve put on some cello tape for now.

So sorry. Suffered similar issue.
Image attached shows two smaller rock rips that I had on the front of my Taycan last spring.
There was a third larger rock rip on the bumper not shown. Also a fourth rip on top of the left rear hip which was about a third of the size of yours. All freeway rocks, fortunately paint was not damaged.
My PPF installer actually ended up replacing the entire hood, bumper and left hip PPF rather than trying to repair.
All under 10 year warranty.
Second image after repair.

how did he get it covered under warranty? I have a small tear in my XPEL, probably from door ding, but haven’t fixed it since I assume it was not warranty covered and I’d have to pay out of pocket

When I purchased my Taycan I used a PPF installer my dealer recommended and the installer gave me a 10 year warranty. Took the vehicle to them in August and they took care of it. No charge.
I did not ask any questions.

@REIL fantastic! XPEL comes with a 10 year warranty to cover peeling or defects. I’m glad your installer fixed it without charge.

I hope you can get yours covered under warranty also.
Best of luck.
