He has accomplished what every teenager has ever dreamed of doing while playing a race car video game. He has became a professional race car driver. Instead of playing the video game, he is living vicariously through it. He is the first American that transitioned from racing virtual cars to racing real cars...for more information click: Bryan Heitkotter's Story After roasting a few friends, Michael M. "Mad Mike" Taylor began explaining his involvement with Nissan, for the people that did not know the story. Michael, better known to the car community as "Mad Mike," lobbied company officials to bring the "Z" back after Nissan killed it from production in 1996. During the speech at Nismo Fiesta, Mad Mike explained that when he went to Japan to get the "Z" back he met with Yutaka Katayama, also known to the car community as "Mr. K." Mr. K is known as the father of the Z. So naturally these two car enthusiasts got along very well.  Skip ahead a few years and in 2003 the "Z" was reborn. Mad Mike credits the Z's re-birth to Carlos Ghosn, the Executive for Nissan Motor Company. To read more about Mad Mike click: More Info

2013 Nissan 370z NISMO gets XPEL Ultimate Protection Film Clear Bra – San Antonio, Texas

Checking that "NISMO" box on your 370z adds 18 horsepower, a sport tuned suspension and exhaust, and a new NISMO body kit. NISMO has been around since 1988 and has been producing some pretty spectacular cars ever since. The owner of this 370Z wanted to ensure he protected their investment by protecting the high impact areas and then some on this brand new 370z. 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.
