The New XPEL ULTIMATE PLUS Paint Protection Film is Now Available

  Since the launch of XPEL ULTIMATE, the world's first self-healing paint protection film, we've worked to advance the industry further. It's taken some time, but trust us, it was all worth it. Today, we're incredibly excited to announce the arrival of the new XPEL ULTIMATE PLUS - the next evolution of superior paint protection film. ULTIMATE PROTECTION, UNSEEN An unparalleled high gloss finish. Improved impact protection for enhanced durability. No doubt, XPEL ULTIMATE PLUS is the most advanced paint protection on the market. Along with the same self-healing power you've come to love, XPEL ULTIMATE PLUS provides less visible distortion than ever before. It also maintains maximum adhesion to painted surfaces thanks to our new edge seal technology. With ULTIMATE PLUS, you'll forget all about the orange peel woes of other films. It's so optically clear, it's virtually invisible to the naked eye. In some cases, XPEL ULTIMATE PLUS can improve the surface quality of your original paint, offering a more consistent finish and overall shine. It's the perfect product to keep your personal vehicle looking pristine with minimal effort on your end. BETWEEN YOU & THE OPEN ROAD Driving any distance can take a toll on your car's exterior. Road grime, tar, bug guts, bird droppings and even air pollution can contaminate the clear coat, causing etching, oxidation, or worse. Thanks to XPEL ULTIMATE PLUS paint protection film, your vehicle can stay safe from outside elements. The film is extremely stain & discoloration resistant, leaving you free to enjoy the drive without worrying about a wipe down at your next stop. INSTALLER TESTED, ENTHUSIAST APPROVED From the shop or the dealership to the street & the track, XPEL ULTIMATE PLUS was born to perform. It installs with ease, looks incredible, and it's built to last. Backed by our 10 year warranty, XPEL ULTIMATE PLUS will have you feeling like you're driving a new car every day. Unsure about the level of protection you need? For most sports cars and passenger vehicles, we recommend what you see above. It's commonly called a  "full front" package. This type of coverage  typically includes the entire hood, front bumper, full fenders, headlights, fog lamps, mirror caps, and more. For trucks, a "partial" package is often preferred, excluding chrome or textured plastic bumpers. Rocker panels and other high impact areas like rear bumpers and fenders are also important to protect, especially with performance cars or trucks with wide tires. So go forth, get protected & and enjoy the drive. Check out our Dealer Locator for an installer near you, and ask for XPEL ULTIMATE PLUS by name today!

XPEL Dealer Conference 2018

  Earlier this month, we kicked off XPEL Dealer Conference 2018 in downtown San Antonio. With insightful keynote speakers, informative breakout sessions, and cut-throat installation competitions, XDC18 captured the XPEL ethos to a T. Take a peek at the gallery above for a taste of what you may have missed. EXPERIENCING XPEL Dealer Conference 2018 If you've never managed to make it to XPEL Dealer Conference, fear not - it's officially an annual event. It's geared toward towards growth, and the momentum created at XDC helps drive us all towards mutual success. We're polishing the format, working out the kinks, and honing in on what makes XDC a must-visit for first timer dealers & industry veterans alike. Check out some of the highlights from XDC18 below.   For the uninitiated, XDC18 might even feel a little overwhelming. From the minute you walk past the Lamborghini in the lobby to the moment you leave the awards ceremony, Dealer Conference is a state of mind. XDC18 Installation Competition A core component of Dealer Conference is competition. The paint protection & window film install showdown was fierce this year. From around the globe, the top XPEL installers fought their way through hoping to bring home the gold. Featuring over $20k in prizes from cash to film credits, the install comp brought a lot of excitement to XDC18. The intricate surfaces of the 4Runner & bulbous shape of the Beetle's rear window posed a challenge for even the most skilled installers. As the ULTIMATE paint protection & PRIME window film boxes started to pile up, the bracket thinned out. After a few strict rounds of judging, it was clear who would take the crown at XPEL Dealer Conference 2018. BREAKOUT SESSIONS This year's breakout sessions highlighted a little bit of everything. Behind the main stage, a bright yellow Porsche GT3 served as the subject for Advanced Installation Training. Attendees could also take part in DAP Q&A, along with a Dealer Round Table Discussion, and an informative exposé on digital marketing. Down the hall, participants could uncover the benefits of PRIME automotive window film and tint patterns. Of course, the VISION architectural & security film demo was a hit too, both literally & figuratively speaking. Guest Speakers at XDC18 While we may have cut back on the keynotes at XPEL Dealer Conference 2018, we made up for it with quality. The variance in schedule lended more time for stories, more room for engagement, and ultimately, a better experience overall. "The Alpha Dog" Jim Ziegler led the charge on the first day, highlighting his expertise with dealerships & what drove him to success. Day 2 brought with it the return of Facebook guru Jared Guynes and his keys to understanding how to maximize social media potential. Michael Vickers helped us understand the meaning of "Becoming Preferred" while maximizing brand appeal with polished experiences, quality service and consistent results. The Winner's Circle & After Party at Pat O'briens XPEL Dealer Conference 2018 concluded in a similar fashion to XDC17 with an open bar & awards ceremony at local haunt, Pat O'Briens. After a non-stop, 48 hour onslaught of all things XPEL, what better way to unwind than with a Hurricane or two? But enough about the after party. Lets' get on to the important stuff: the winners. Paint Protection Film: Showcasing their abilities with XPEL ULTIMATE, the top 3 in paint protection were Andrew Pilon in 3rd, Marcus Wiener in 2nd, and reigning champ Chris West in 1st.   Window Film: For window film, the prizewinners for PRIME went to Juan Botia in 3rd, Sylvain Parenteau in 2nd, and Rob Ruska in 1st. Congratulate the winners when you see them - if you didn't win, don't let it shake you. Hunker down, practice like there's no tomorrow and home your skills. XDC19 will be here before you know it. Regional Awards This year's conference also marked the new addition of regional recognition. From all around the world, the top XPEL Dealers received awards for their ongoing efforts to push the brand to new heights. In no particular order, congratulations to Goldwing Autocare, Tint Tech, WD Co-Auto, E.T., Midwest Tinting, Gulf Coast Auto Shield, Automotive Elegance, Protective Film Solutions, Eurotech Motorsports, Knox Details, Eastside Auto Salon, and Protex Laval for a stellar performance in 2017. The Future Of XPEL Dealer Conference No doubt, the camaraderie among the XPEL Family is palpable. From the biggest dealers to the smallest start ups, we're all in it together, and that's truly what Dealer Conference is all about. Where will XDC go from here? Only time will tell. Maybe next year we'll be gearing up for an XPEL DealerCation on a beach somewhere. For now, keep one hand on the squeegee & an eye on your email - XDC19 is sure to be bigger than ever.

YasMadness, to be precise.   The BMW M4 piloted by Hunter Evans can be seen roaming the coastline & cayons on the daily. We sat down with Hunter to talk about growing up in Malibu, Cali living, and where his infamous Bimmer gets its name. IN SEARCH OF YASTOPIA For Hunter, the yearn for BMW ownership began in high school. While his friends daily'd E92s and 135s, he made the trek in a rather sluggish Hummer H3. Malibu is brimming with car culture of all varieties, so the thirst for something more was real from the start. Of course, good things take time. While whipping the H3, Hunter set his sights on the M4. Once he acquired it, everything else seemed to fall into place. "When you're surrounded by it as a kid, it's the norm. When that becomes the norm, it's what you work towards as an innate desire." And for many automotive enthusiasts, this mentality rings true. We pine for a sense of belonging & serenity that one can attain from driving the perfect car on the open road. "Multiple friends got BMWs as their first cars - it was the only brand that I really wanted. It's just a dream come true to have this finally." No doubt, achieving drivable utopia is a goal worth chasing. NOT SAFE FOR MALIBU If you're not familiar with the YasMadness M4. you might mistake it for a factory frozen BMW. Thanks to Auto Armour in San Diego, the Yas Marina finish got frosted with the kind of satin sheen only XPEL STEALTH PPF can provide. With Malibu as a backdrop, Hunter's BMW turns heads as quick as it turns corners. The factor carbon roof & aftermarket accents remain glossy as ever thanks to ULTIMATE clear bra as well. For an added bump of power, the M4 received everything under the sun and then some from DINAN. The car made it to SEMA for two consecutive years finding its home in the DINAN booth, and even managed to get recognized by the good people at MotorTrend for being a "top tuner car" of 2015. "I was just floored. I never imagined being on a MOTORTREND top anything list."   To finish off the look, custom painted HRE P101s fill out the M4's arches in style with performance to match. Whether it's prowling PCH or perched on a turnout overlooking the coastline, the YasMadness M4 is well equipped for California living. "This car has been life changing." Understandibly so. The M4 ranks pretty high on the list of "cars we'd like to have in our dream garage," and after experiencing the madness of Yas first hand, we're definitely hungry for more. Follow the Madness Spending time in the 'Bu with Hunter and YasMadness was an experience we won't soon forget. In a world of keyboard warriors and fervent purists, his friendly, approachable nature & enthusiasm for BMW ownership was incredibly refreshing. If you haven't yet, pop over to the Yastagram for an inside look at one of the Internet's favorite M4s. ___________________________________ Special thanks to Evan & the team at Auto Armour for a fantastic STEALTH install on Hunter's M4.
