Drop top Ferrari 458 Spider gets XPEL ULTIMATE – Austin, TX

0 Comment

 Ferrari 458 Spider

The only thing better than a Ferrari 458  Italia is a Ferrari 458 Spider. You still get the thrill of a 4.5L V8 pumping out 570 horsepower and 400 lb ft of torque, but now you can enjoy it with the top down and wind in your hair. It’s almost time for fall and that means more better weather days for a convertible. That same engine will rocket you to 60 in 3.4 seconds and to a top speed of 198 miles per hour.

Ferrari Of Austin

Ferrari of Austin knows the importance of Paint Protection Film, so they brought in this 2014 458 Spider to our brand new Austin, Texas location to have us install our XPEL ULTIMATE film. We installed a full front, and rocker panel kit. See the video below for the full installation process.


XPEL Ultimate Self-healing Clear Bra

XPEL ULTIMATE leads the industry with it’s clarity, durability, gloss retention and more. We stand behind our product 100%, so much so that ULTIMATE has a 10-year warranty covering defects such as yellowing, cracking, staining, blistering and/or delaminating.

Protecting your car has many benefits. It will help maintain your car’s factory finish, make your car easier to clean, help the resale value of your vehicle, all while it is being protected from every day driving.

Demonstration of our XPEL ULTIMATE self-healing properties

Our XPEL ULTIMATE film self-heals from light scratches, swirl marks and rock chips while driving or maintaining your vehicle. During the show we use a Brass wire brush to simulate the every day occurrences that can affect the film. With the sun on the display the scratches from the brush instantly disappear. When the sun is not available, you can accelerate the healing process with a cup of warm water or a heat source.

Not all Patterns are created equal

At XPEL we pride ourselves on our pre-cut pattern software. By using a pre-cut pattern you’ll have less to worry about, since the installer will not be trimming the film on your vehicle. Using a pre-cut pattern the film will naturally fit without excessive stretching or contortion, which means the finished product not only lines up perfectly but is free of defects which could be visible once the install is finished.

Contrary to what some may believe it’s possible to wrap edges using a computer cut pattern which gives you a much better protection and installation. With XPEL Technologies Corp., all patterns are available with precision cut wrapped edges where possible. Where a wrapped edge is not possible, for example around the parking sensors on a bumper, reverse cameras and more, the film is always machine cut with precision.

You can pick and choose your coverage options.

  • Door handle inserts, also known as door cups. This area is prone to getting scratched when entering and exiting the vehicle with rings, fingernails, etc…
  • Luggage Area Kit. This area is prone to damage due to items being removed from the trunk.
  • Headlights and/or Fog-lights Kit
  • Rocker Panels
  • High Impact Areas
