BMW Performance Driving Center at The Thermal Club

Adonis Detail and XPEL ULTIMATE When BMW of North America announced the opening of a new permanent BMW Performance Driver Training Facility in Southern California in 2014, we were extremely excited. With the increased mileage around the course, the damage from rock chips, bugs acids and other debris were taking a toll on these powerful M cars, they needed some sort of protection. This is where our friends, Adonis Detail come in, they are wrapping each car with XPEL ULTIMATE self-healing film to help keep the beautiful M Performance Cars looking brand new.   BMW takes their performance driving school seriously and since opening, nearly 130,000 students have completed the course.

BMW M235i XPEL Clear Bra Paint Protection

The (new) Bavarian Deuces Power-Packed Turbocharged Inline 6 Cylinder M235i protected with XPEL ULTIMATE. The 2014 2-Series coupe was designed to bring the E36 (1995-1999 M3) and E46 (2000-2006 M3) crowd back to a new generation of BMW. It has been called the modern day E46 M3 due to multiple variables, but the two that stand out are the power and dimensions. The biggest thing attracting new buyers is the power. The M235i delivers 320 horsepower through a Twin-Turbo Inline 6-cylinder M-tuned motor. The E46 M3 delivered 333 horsepower through a naturally aspirated 3.2 Liter M-tuned motor. Although the M235i has less horsepower, it shaves .7 seconds off of the 0-60 mph time, at an impressive 4.6 seconds! While they are both coupes, the M235i is 2 inches shorter, .2 inches skinnier width and 1 inch taller than the E46 Series M3. So, generally speaking the M235i is the closest thing we will get to an modern day E46 M3 BMW. This powerful M235i received the protection it deserved with XPEL ULTIMATE Full Hood, Headlights, Fenders, Mirrors, and Bumper Kit. Here     Installation Pictures   Below are examples of the patterns that were installed on this M235i BMW Hood, Fender, Mirror and Bumper Kit To view the pattern for your vehicle: Click Here 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.

BMW E92 ///M3 Paint Protection Film Clear Bra

  The last V8 M3 Protected with XPEL Clear Bra Protect your German Sports Car with paint protection film. The BMW M3 is synonymous for being a great sports car. Since it's debut in 1985 with the original E30 M3, this car has been setting the bar and raising the standards. The M3 just entered it's fifth variant with the F80. That ///M car is powered by a 3.0 liter twin-turbocharged straight six cylinder engine. Manufacturers have been making the displacement smaller and adding forced induction to help the fuel economy while maintaining or even improving performance. So whether you want a turbocharger under the bonnet or not, there is an M3 for you. The car we installed on is from the 4th generation and since it's the two-door coupe it makes this the E92 M3. This generation is the last naturally aspirated M3, at least for a while. The E90 series cars are powered by the S65 V8 that produces 414 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. The noise this engine makes when revving to it's 8400 rpm redline is a thing of beauty. When you have a car this capable, it's important to protect it's paint with paint protection film. Shielding your cars exterior from rock chips, scratches, and other minor road debris will help your car look great for the road ahead. San Antonio area manager David Dick received the call about the fourth generation M3. The owner of the car brought it to XPEL San Antonio to have the full front end protected. This includes the entire hood, front fenders, front bumper, headlights and mirrors.   Below are examples of the patterns that were installed on this BMW E92 ///M3 Partial Hood, Partial Fenders, Mirrors and Bumper Kit XPEL Ultimate Self-healing Clear Bra XPEL ULTIMATE leads the industry with it's clarity, durability, gloss retention and more.
