StarTech with the Mercedes-Benz Club of America

Featuring XPEL and Mercedes-Benz Club of America   StarTech 2015 was in Cincinnati Ohio this year and it was a great event! We arrived Friday morning June 12th at the Cincinnati Airport and headed to the host hotel, The DoubleTree by Hilton. When we arrived there was a Show and Shine in progress in the parking lot, with all different years of Mercedes-Benz's in attendance. After we set up our booth inside the event area, we were able to go outside and take a look at all of the beautiful Mercedes' that were parked outside. Mercedes Benz USA and The Cincinnati Reds partnered together to secure the Mercedes-Benz Diamond Club at the Cincinnati Reds Stadium for the official Welcome Party for StarTech 2015. Around 7pm that night we drove to a special entrance under the stadium at the Great American Ballpark, and entered the Mercedes-Benz Diamond club, red carpet style. Before we started the social hour and dinner, the organizers gave us brief history lesson about the Mercedes-Benz and The Cincinnati Reds; we all know Mercedes-Benz produced one of the first cars, the Benz Patent Motorwagen in 1886, but did you know that The Cincinnati Reds became the 1st professional baseball team 25 years earlier than that in 1861? After they started serving drinks and great tasting hors d'oeuvres they invited us out into the stadium at field level and we had a chance to relax in the Posh Diamond Club seats and take a stroll into the dugout for pictures. It was a truly awesome experience, we got to walk on the same field Ken Griffey Jr played on while he was with the Cincinnati Reds!   Saturday night dinner Banquet sponsored by XPEL Pictures from the show 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.

2014 Mercedes Benz SL550 Roadster Clear Bra Austin Texas

60 Years of the SL Class 2014 marks 60 years for the famed Mercedes Benz SL Class. The 190SL and outstanding 300SL gullwing debuted on stage at the 1954 New York auto show. The 190SL came with a 1.9 liter inline four cylinder that produced 105 horsepower, while the gullwing version came with a 3.0 liter single overhead cam inline six cylinder that sported 215 horsepower. For 1954 that was a ton of power! Because the gullwing version was hard to climb into with its high door sills, and a chore to drive during the summer due to cabin temperature (there was no air conditioning), Mercedes saw a need for an open top version. It was 1958 that the first true SL as we know today was created. Though it was built on the same body design, and shared the same drivetrain as the coupe, the Roadster projected it's own aura of elegance, power, and class. Through the years the SL has grown in size, weight, power, and much more, but it has never lost it's "SL-ness". Nowadays you can buy an SL Roadster with "MAGIC SKY CONTROL" which is a Mercedes-Benz exclusive, where the panorama sunroof can alter the transparency of the roof by applying electric current through it letting in less light, UV and infrared rays keeping the cabin cooler. Talk about technology! But let's be honest, and SL Roadster is best with the top down. No matter what generation of the SL Class you own, or get to drive, you're in for a treat. MB of Austin Mercedes Benz of Austin knows the importance of Paint Protection Film, so they sent over this gorgeous showroom model for us to install our XPEL ULTIMATE self-healing film on. We installed  full frontal protection, this includes the entire hood, front fenders, front bumper, and mirrors. Our ULTIMATE film comes with a 10 year warranty, is discoloration resistant, and will self-heal any light scratches and swirl marks. Here are the patterns that were installed on the SL550 Roadster.

2013 Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG protected with XPEL ULTIMATE Film – San Antonio, TX

Geländewagen The Mercedes-Benz G-Series has a very unique and recognizable skeleton, that hasn't changed since it's birth. Back in the seventies, a Shah from Iran mentioned to Mercedes that he would like a 4x4 SUV. Instantly, Mercedes partnered with Austrian military vehicle manufacturer, Steyr,Daimler-Puch, and created the Gelandewagen. German for cross-country vehicle. R&D for this vehicle was extensive, with many trips to the Sahara desert, the Arctic Circle, and German Coalfields. It was 1979 that they started hand building the G-Wagen at their Graz factory, where they're still made to this day. They had two versions available in 1979, a short or long wheelbase. Two-door ragtop, wagon, and windowless wagon versions were available. They came with a ladder chassis, three fully locking differentials, and six engine options. Three gasoline engines, and three diesel variants. The Gelandewagen has seen action serving over 60 armies, and Mercedes has even had to promise NATO that they'll continue building them until 2025. To respond to the Range Rover, Mercedes had to class up the G-Wagen and make it a luxury SUV, and not just a terrain destroying military people carrier. Refinements over the next decade included, air conditioning, comfier seats, electric windows, power antenna, ABS, wood trim, and much more. People were starting to notice how the G-Wagen hadn't changed in decades, so Mercedes stepped it up once again and handed the vehicle over to the wizards at AMG. To this day you can get one with a 6.0L twin-turbo V12 that makes 612 hp and 737lb ft of torque! So how does a car that's basically been unchanged for 33 years last? In the words of Top Gear's Jeremy Clarkson, "MORE POWER!" Protect the Protector It's probably a stretch to say that the G-Wagen is still used today as it was used in the past, as an off road machine. In any case, how do you protect the Mercedes SUV that's protected armies for over a quarter of a century? With XPEL ULTIMATE paint protection film. We installed a XPEL ULTIMATE full front, including full hood, front bumper, front fenders, headlights, and mirrors.     XPEL Ultimate Self-healing Clear Bra XPEL ULTIMATE leads the industry with it's clarity, durability, gloss retention and more.

Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren: Gloss To Matte Black with Self-Healing Film. Houston, Texas

The Sixth Element Carbon fiber has long been renowned as one of the strongest and lightest materials for manufacturing. It's composed of mostly carbon atoms bonded together in a long line creating a fiber. A fiber that's incredibly strong for it's size. Take several of those fibers and weave them into a fabric, which can then be molded into shape for various materials. Why am I talking about carbon fiber? The entire body of the Mercedes-Benz McLaren SLR is made of carbon fiber. I'd like to think that McLaren played a huge part when designing the body, taking it's carbon fiber element from their Formula 1 race cars. Because carbon fiber weighs half what it's steel counterpart weighs, the SLR can rocket to 60 in just 3.5 seconds. Maverick In Top Gun, in order for Tom Cruise (Maverick) to fire his F14's rocket launchers, he had to flip up a cover on the yoke to display the launch button. That's exactly how you start the SLR. Flip up the cover atop the gear shifter to press the engine start button, and you are rewarded with the amazing sound track that plays through the side-exit exhaust. That has to do with what sits under the hood. The engine is the 5.4 liter supercharged V8 from the SL55 that normally produces 493 horsepower and 516 lb ft. The crew at AMG and McLaren didn't think that was enough, so  power was increased to an astounding 626 horsepower and 575 lb ft. Weight distribution is a near perfect at 51/49 front and rear with the curb weight coming in at 3,733 lbs. Stop! When Top Gear's Jeremy Clarkson got his hands on the SLR for the first time back in 2004 he did a braking test.  But this wasn't an ordinary brake test. The UK's highway code standards state that a car must be able to stop from 60 in 240 feet. When Jeremy did the test he didn't try it from 60 miles per hour. Instead he did it from 120 miles per hour. Double the standard. The car stopped a foot or two short of the 240 feet mark, thanks to the carbon ceramic brakes. Matte Black The owner of this super rare super car came into our Houston shop wanting an entire Stealth film wrap. If you aren't familiar with our Stealth film, it gives any painted surface a "matte" appearance. Best of all though, is that is retains its self-healing qualities from the Ultimate film. We covered the entire car bumper to bumper. These are the results. XPEL Ultimate Self-healing Clear Bra XPEL ULTIMATE leads the industry with it's clarity, durability, gloss retention and more.

Mercedes SLR and SLS Clear Bra Installation

XPEL Paint Protection Film XPEL's Design Access Program Pre-Cut Kit The Mercedes SLR McLaren is one of the top exotic automobiles on the market today. With less than 3,500 of these machines roaming the streets of the world they are a sight to see. Every part of the SLR was built to make it stand out from the crowd. With its amazing design and performance specs, not only does it stand out from the crowd, it stands above them all. The design goal was to model a modern day supercar based off of one of the world’s most sought after cars to date, the 1955 300 SLR. Once again they have shown that they are at the top of the automotive world. This limited edition 722 model honors the 1955 Mille Miglia win by Mercedes-Benz driver Sterling Moss. The 722 also add some sport changes to the car as well as the carbon fiber front and rear spoiler kits and custom wheels. This car came to us brand new and our goal is to let the owner enjoy the thrill of driving the car and keeping it that way. The question from my client was not weather he wanted to put XPEL Paint Protection on this car, but how soon could we fly down and have it installed for him. Most people are intimidated just sitting on a car like this. It’s just another car right? So it has a half million dollar price tag. No big deal, it’s just a limited production edition of an already limited production super car. I’ve seen other manufactures clear bras on SLRs and we’ve had to remove them, they have not been a pretty sight. XPEL made this install smooth and virtually painless. Not to play it down, the car provides challenges with it’s out of this world lines and curves. If you have the right paint protection film and right installer it all comes together amazing. Now this car can continue turning heads on the street without taking the abuse that it certainly would without XPEL protecting it.

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.
