XPEL Dealer Conference 2017 – Celebrating 20 Years

XPEL Dealer Conference We would like to thank everyone who attended the XPEL Dealer Conference in San Antonio, Texas. It was an absolute blast, and we cannot wait for next years event. If you missed the Dealer Conference, be sure to keep and eye out for next year's event, dates will be coming soon. Over the course of two days, we had more than 120 attendees from our worldwide network of XPEL installers descend upon the Marriott Rivercenter in downtown San Antonio.

In addition, we had speakers from all different networks, including experts in social media, branding, and search engine optimization, all designed to help you, our customer, to build your business and brand. Aside from the guest speakers, show attendees were welcomed with various breakout sessions which focused on key points and topics to help them with their business and make a stronger impact in their market, more details below. The heavy hitter was the installation contests for both Paint Protection Film and Window film. Contestants could choose to enter both contests to win a grand prize of five thousand dollars!

Combined, we had more than eighty installers competing to win the title of best XPEL Installer for Window Film and Paint Protection Film. The PPF competitors had to install XPEL ULTIMATE on one full fender for the first round, a 24" partial hood kit for the second round and full front bumper for the final round. The Window Film competitors had to tint one roll-up window for round one, the opposite roll-up window for round two, and the back window for the final round. Competition winners are announced below.

When the announcement went out worldwide, many of you shared the same excitement and passion for the upcoming annual conference.  After all the number crunching and registration was completed we were at an astonishing 125 attendees. Next year we expect to exceed that number and make the event bigger and better, in every way possible.   Around the Hotel and Dealer Conference We can't wait to see everyone next year for a bigger and better event! Without you, our Dealer Network, we wouldn't be where we are today. We strive to be the best company with the best customer service. Thank you for attending!

BMW X5M Meets Its Match at XPEL San Antonio

2016 BMW X5M - San Antonio XPEL Install Protected with XPEL ULTIMATE and PRIME XR Window Film This week in the shop we have this gorgeous 2016 BMW X5M, which boasts a mind blowing 567 horsepower. This is one of the coolest SUV’s that we’ve seen come in the shop lately. The owner knew the importance of protecting their pride and joy with XPEL. We didn’t stop at just our Clear bra aka Paint Protection Film, we also installed our XPEL PRIME Window film on the windows. The owner had all the windows on this powerful family hauler tinted with our PRIME XR nano-ceramic window film, which helps keep the vehicle cool during the summer and provides cabin privacy (click for more information about PRIME Window Film). Once the window film was completed, we started wrapping this German beauty with only the best, XPEL ULTIMATE clear bra. Installation begins on the 2016 BMW X5M When we begin the installation process, the first step is washing the vehicle. Once the vehicle is clean, the installers begin to use a clay bar to remove any surface contaminants on the vehicles paint. Contaminants can be industrial fallout, overspray, sap, etc. Once the vehicle is smooth and clean, our installers will wipe the surface down with isopropyl alcohol to ensure that any grease, wax, slime is removed before applying the clear bra. Now that the vehicle is fully prepped for the XPEL ULTIMATE paint protection film, the installers apply/spray XPEL Installation Gel onto the vehicle, which allows the film to float so they can align the pre-cut kits precisely before using their squeegee to lock the film in place. Once the installers have the film aligned correctly, they start squeegeeing the film into place, which bonds it to the vehicles paint. Finished Product Once the installers finish applying the clear paint protection film, they will inspect their work and make any final adjustments before sending the vehicle back to the customer. After the final quality check is complete, the film should be barely noticeable to the untrained eye. This is done by competent installers, accurate and precise pre-cut kits that allow for wrapped edges. Always ask your installer for wrapped edges where possible, meaning that the film is wrapped over the body panel. I.e. the film would have wrapped around the edges of the hood, so there wouldn’t be visible seams to collect dirt and dust. Most vehicles allow for the film to be wrapped, although some vehicles do not.   Installation Gallery   Completed Pictures    San Antonio XPEL Install Center If you live in the San Antonio area or surrounding areas, contact us today to get XPEL ULTIMATE installed.

Purple People Eater Hellcat

We're crazy about this Plum Crazy Purple! STEALTH Wrapped Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Take a look at this SRT Hellcat that is completely wrapped with XPEL STEALTH Satin-Finish Paint Protection Film. While it may not be the 'Purple People Eater,' it certainly looks breathtaking and gives the vehicle a custom look with the protection you need when you're driving on the open road. This Hellcat, now nicknamed #STEALTHcat, was originally an unprotected OEM gloss paint job, then The Sign Savers of Miami wrapped the entire vehicle with the Satin-Finish Clear Bra and transformed it completely. About XPEL STEALTH STEALTH provides the same protection as our ULTIMATE film, it carries a full 10-year warranty that covers yellowing, discoloration, peeling, cracking and hazing. The added benefit with the STEALTH film is that it transforms your gloss paint to a satin-finish. For those of you reading that may have a matte-finish from the factory, don't worry, you can protect it with XPEL STEALTH as well. The satin-finish mimics the matte paint job without adding any gloss.   Hellcat Install Video While we were visiting with our friends, The Sign Savers, they let us get an amazing installation video of the "STEALTHcat." The video came out great, and we think you'll like it! Be sure to share and like it, if you agree.

Made in Italy – Designed by a New Yorker

Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale Centennial Edition This Rosso Magma Metallic GranTurismo MC Stradale Centennial Edition began its journey in Modena, Italy; when it was fully matured the GranTurismo made its way to San Antonio, Texas. Ironically enough, the person responsible for the great body lines and curves goes to the designer, Jason Castriota, who grew up in none other than, the United States of America. He was born on the East Coast and then later interned with Pininfarina in Cambiano, Italy. With Pininfarina, Jason, was responsible for helping with the design on such cars as the Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano, the Maserati GranTurismo and a few other concepts and supercar’s for Maserati, Ferrari and Rolls Royce. It goes without saying, how beautiful the Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale Centennial Edition looks, but the sounds that come from the exhaust, are a thing of beauty. The 4.7 Liter V8 pushes out 454 horsepower through a ZF 6-speed automatic transmission, which gallops the car all the way up to its top speed of 188 miles per hour. If you’re wondering how quickly you can get this Italian Stallion from 0 – 60 miles per hour, it only takes a mere 4.5 seconds. With all this performance, you can still get a conservative 21 miles per gallon on the highway. So, now that you have the performance vehicle you’ve always wanted, how will you help protect and keep this beautiful beast looking brand new? The owner of this Maserati chose to wrap the front end and rocker panels with none other than XPEL ULTIMATE paint protection film. The full front end includes: full hood, full fenders, front bumper, headlights, and mirrors. The owner also recognized how vulnerable the rocker panels are susceptible to rock chip damage, so he elected to have them covered with ULTIMATE as well. This included removing the factory film, which                                                                                                                            unfortunately, doesn’t provide full coverage. Installation Process Inspection When you drop your vehicle off at XPEL San Antonio, the first thing we do is a full exterior vehicle inspection (to check for any rock chips or damage) Wash Your Vehicle We use our signature XPEL Flawless Rinse Free Car Wash to clean your entire vehicle and ensure we have a clean canvas to work with. Clay Bar the Installation Area The next step in our process is using a clay bar, which will remove any surface contaminants (bird droppings, wax, sap, bugs, etc). This process will make sure that the surface is smooth and ready for the paint protection film to be applied. Final Wipe Down Once the claying process is complete, we'll wipe down your vehicle and inspect the paint before applying the paint protection film. Paint Inspection If there are any contaminants left behind we will repeat the clay bar process to make sure you get the best installation possible. Applying Installation Gel Now that the surface is clean, smooth and ready for Paint Protection Film, we spray XPEL Installation Gel on the surface where film is going to be installed. The Gel allows us to move the film around and get the XPEL Pre-Cut film kits aligned on the vehicle before we start using the squeegees to install the film. Installing XPEL ULTIMATE Paint Protection Film Once the gel has been applied to the vehicles paint, we will lay the XPEL ULTIMATE pre-cut paint protection film on your vehicle. Our XPEL Pre-cut kits are designed to fit precisely without the need to trim the film on the paint. If you are having XPEL installed, be sure to ask your installer if they are using XPEL pre-cut kits. Once the installers have the film aligned correctly, they will start squeegeeing the film in place, similar to the image below. Final Inspection Now that the film has been applied, our paint protection film installers will do a quality check to make sure there are no issues with the installation and continue to the next panel on the vehicle.         Finished Pictures outside XPEL Headquarters

Ferrari 458 Speciale Paint Protection Film

To Ferrari or Not To Ferrari, that is the question! Our response is always To Ferrari! This Italian Supercar is protected with XPEL ULTIMATE The owner of this beautiful Ferrari 458 Speciale wanted ultimate protection while driving the most powerful naturally aspirated V8 Ferrari ever created (so far). Yes I said ever, the Ferrari 458 Speciale makes 597bhp coming from a 4.5 Liter (4497cc) V8 engine . To be a little more specific, the Speciale makes 133bhp-per-liter, making it the highest specific output of any naturally aspirated Ferrari road car, Enzo and LaFerrari included. Now, if you are thinking of buying one or you're currently an owner of a Ferrari 458 Speciale, this little monster will take you from 0-60 miles per hour in just 3 seconds, which is .4 seconds faster than the 458 Italia. So, if you were thinking about upgrading your 458 Italia, this is definitely the car to pick. The Speciale shifts faster, turns quicker and even stops shorter. The engineers at Ferrari lightened the Speciale by 200 pounds and added a dash of clever technology to the car. The technical advances will amplify your skills, stroke your ego and make for a much more spirited driving experience. Since the owner wanted to drive this car to its maximum potential, they needed the best protection. They opted for a full front of XPEL ULTIMATE self-healing paint protection film. This includes the full hood, front bumper, headlights, full fenders and mirrors. If you look below you can see the kits we used for this magnificent car. Everything is plotter cut, meaning there is no need for cutting on the car. Please enjoy; I know we did. Watch the Installation Video below: Installation Pictures  Below are examples of the patterns that were installed on this Ferrari 458. Full 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.

2014 BMW M5 Clear Bra Paint Protection

I don't always drive BMW's. But when I do, I prefer the M5 TWIN-TURBO V8 BEAST protected with XPEL ULTIMATE The 2015 BMW M5 is a powerful rear wheel drive beast, boasting 560 horsepower! This car will plant you in the back of your seat, but at the same time seat 5 people (comfortably) and you can have the best of both worlds, luxury and speed. BMW beautifully pairs this powerful car with a 7 speed dual-clutch automatic transmission that will get you from 0-60 mph in just 3.7 seconds, with a top speed electronically limited at 155 miles per hour. Getting the kids to soccer practice just became much quicker and safer. The dual front, front-side and full-length side curtain airbags, traction control, and active head restraints will keep you and your family safe. BMW added a fantastic set of High Performance tires that measure in at approximately twelve inches wide in the rear to give you maximum grip. At 12" wide the tires are almost double the size of a standard Toyota Prius tire, which measure in at 7" wide. For you speed enthusiasts, don't worry; you can still get this 560 horsepower monster to spin the tires around the corners. With the base MSRP coming in at just over $100,000 USD the owner knew to protect his BMW M5 with only the best, XPEL ULTIMATE. The owner opted for the partial hood, fender, mirrors, front bumper, rocker panels and the luggage area kit, providing him the “high impact” area coverage he desired. This gave the owner ease of every day driving and he can live our motto, “Drive a new car every day.”   XPEL Ultimate Self-healing Clear Bra XPEL ULTIMATE leads the industry with it's clarity, durability, gloss retention and more.

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.

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.
