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. 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.

Stage 3 Roushcharged Ford Mustang protected with XPEL Clear Bra

  Stage 3 Roushcharged Ford Mustang Protected with XPEL Clear Bra Supercharged American muscle gets a supercharged amount of paint protection film. Jack Roush has been an automotive enthusiast all his life. But it wasn't until 1988 that he first approached Ford to create a "RoushCharged" Mustang. Ford declined the initial 400 horsepower twin turbocharged idea due to production costs. That didn't stop Jack Roush, in 1995 he created Roush Performance Products. Here they offered off the shelf performance parts and even crate engines. After some convincing, in 1997 they started to offer in-house performance, exterior and interior packages. San Antonio area manager David Dick received the call about the upgraded 'Stang. The owner of the car brought it to XPEL San Antonio to have the partial front end protected. This includes 18-24" up the hood, with matching coverage on the fenders. Full front bumper, plus side mirrors.   Below are examples of the patterns that were installed on this Stage 3 Roushcharged Ford Mustang  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.

The Mighty Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Protected with XPEL Clear Bra

The Mighty Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Protected with XPEL Clear Bra Supercharged American muscle gets a supercharged amount of paint protection film. The Chevrolet bowtie is one of the World's most recognizable brand trademarks. It was in 1913 that William C. Durant first introduced this symbol. Here we are over 100 years later and the bowtie is still around, and in this case turning heads. The Camaro ZL1 isn't your ordinary Camaro. While it's not the track monster Z28 that was just released, the ZL1 is more for the every day driver. Powered by Chevy's LSA V8, the same motor that is used in the Cadillac CTS-V models, this engine produces 580 supercharged horsepower and 556 lb-ft of torque from it's 6.2-liters. That much power means this 4,051 pound muscle car can hurry to 60 in 3.8 seconds and finish the quarter mile in 12.1 seconds. That's only a tenth of a second off the $225,000 Mercedes Benz SLS AMG GT to sixty. Finished photo outside XPEL San Antonio The Camaro has come a long way since it's introduction for the 1967 model year. The same is true when it comes to paint protection film. From it's entry into the automotive world in the nineties, this polyurethane clear shield has made a lot of changes. XPEL ULTIMATE is a virtually invisible film that leads the industry in protecting your vehicles paint from unsightly damage, while maximizing re-sale value. On top of protecting your paint, it will make maintenance on your vehicle easier too. No special care is required, simply wash and wax your vehicle as you normally would. Due to the ULTIMATE's self-healing properties, worrying about swirl marks are a thing of the past. Utilizing an advanced clear coat, fine scratches or swirl marks will heal over time leaving a smooth glass like finish.   San Antonio area manager David Dick received a call from local Chevy store Tom Benson Chevrolet. The buyer of this beautiful brand new ZL1 said that he was going to drive the car to his ranch home in Arkansas, some 10 hours away. After going over the benefits of the paint protection film, the customer opted in for an XPEL ULTIMATE FULL wrap. Every single body panel was protected with our top of the line self-healing clear bra. The hard working installers completed the install in just over two days with spectacular results. Below you'll find an installation photo thread, as well as a high-definition video.

Jaguar F-Type Clear Bra

A New Cat King Replacing the famed Jaguar E-Type must've been a very daunting task for the design team at Jaguar. How do you follow a car so beautiful Enzo Ferrari once called the best looking car in the world and New York's Museum of Modern Art added as part of its permanent collection. With caution. Nevertheless, Jaguar went for it and succeeded. The new Jaguar F-type has gotten a lot of positive reviews since it's debut and has put Jaguar back on the map when it comes to lightweight, fun to drive sports cars. This drop top comes 3 different ways, the base model supercharged V6, the V6 S, and the V8 S. Power is 340hp, 380hp, and 495hp respectively. No matter which power plant you opt in for, you will be treated with the sweet gurgle of that British built engine screaming out the rear exhaust pipes.

Bugatti Veyron Clear Bra

Supercar Clear Bra The Bugatti Veyron is one of the most jaw dropping cars on the planet. Wether it's because of the 1,000 plus horsepower, or the million dollar plus price tag, this car has a serious presence. Here are some interesting Bugatti Veyron facts you may not know: At 250 miles per hour, the Veyron's tires will last fifteen minutes. At that speed, it's 26.4 gallon fuel tank goes dry in twelve minutes. At 253 miles per hour the Veyron consumes 47,000 liters of air per minute - as much air as one man breathes in four days. It takes 15 hours to build one radiator for the Veyron - each car has 10. The brakes can withstand heat up to 1,800 degrees Celsius -- roughly 3,200 degrees Fahrenheit. When the air brake is at an angle of 55 degrees it generates around 70% of the braking force of an average car. The Veyron uses special tires made by Michelin specifically for the car. They're 14.5 inches wide in the rear. All four tires cost $40,000 The $120,000 7-speed dual clutch transmission is designed by Ricardo, an English speciality engineering firm. XPEL San Antonio As you can tell by now, it's not everyday that a Bugatti Veyron shows up at your door. XPEL San Antonio had the privilege of installing on one. The owner wanted all the high impact areas of the vehicle protected. We did just that. XPEL ULTIMATE was installed on the full front end, rocker panels, mirrors, and rear spoiler. The results were spectacular.

XPEL Paint Protection Film goes to the Autocross

Autocross For those of you unfamiliar with Autocross, it's a form of motor sports that offers low risk competition.  Autocross has been around since the 1940's, enabling the average American who are passionate about cars, and speed, to compete on a low cost entry level. The courses are usually set up in a large parking lot, in this case it happened at the local horse racing track parking lot. The courses are marked with road cones that give the drivers direction to navigate through the course. The drivers do not race head to head, instead it's a competition to get the fastest time. Most courses run 40 to 90 seconds long and can reach speeds in excess of 75 mph. Porsche Enthusiasm Here at XPEL we don't just talk cars, we live cars, and we enjoy driving them. One of us in particular is an avid Porsche enthusiast, and multiple Porsche owner. East Coast Account Manager David Campbell never misses a chance to take his 911 out to a PCA Autocross. If you're interested in a local autocross reach out to your manufacturer's local club for possible upcoming events. Porsche Protection David's white 997 911 is protected with XPEL ULTIMATE paint protection film. XPEL San Antonio installed ULTIMATE on the full hood, front fenders, bumper, headlights, mirrors, and rear wheel impact areas. Since autocross events are usually held in parking lots that aren't always well maintained there are always two or three patches of gravel, dirt, or rocks the drivers have to navigate through or around. This can cause rocks to fly up and possibly scratch, or even chip the paint. Protecting the high impact areas of your vehicle are key. We have a database with over 87,000 patterns for all makes and models dating back to the late 1990's. We have a world wide dealer base ready to protect your car.

Boxstoberfest 2013 Fredericksburg, Texas

  Porsche - A Driver's Car In the automotive world there are usually just two kinds of people. Those who see cars as a mode of transport from A to B, and then those who appreciate cars for what they are. Here at XPEL we are the latter. Yes cars get us to and from the office, but they are so much more than that. On a nice twisty road where you can feel the suspension flex through the corner, and hear the exhaust note scream at you as you rev higher and higher is when you truly understand and appreciate the car as a machine. That's what Porsche is all about. This year the Porsche 911 Carrera won MotorTrend's Best Driver's Car Contest just after the 911 Carrera 2S took home the prize a year earlier. The car didn't win because of it's quarter mile time, or 60-0 braking distance, rather for the way it makes you feel behind the wheel. The annual Boxstoberfest in Fredericksburg, Texas celebrates exactly that. 15th Annual Boxstoberfest This year marks 15 years for Boxstoberfest. The event started when the Boxster was introduced back in 1996-1997 when a handful of Boxster owners got together to drive the hill country and talk about their brand new Porsche's. Now after over a decade the event is bigger than ever. Over 200 participants showed up this year at the Hangar Hotel in Fredericksburg, Texas, a beautiful little town nestled in the hills of central Texas. Everyone got settled in Friday night and prepped their cars for the next day's outings. Saturday was the event's big day. After eating breakfast everyone gathered for a drivers meeting. The agenda for the day was to drive the Three Sisters (AKA THE TWISTED SISTERS) route through the Texas hill country. Those of you that have driven on these roads know exactly how thrilling that route can be. The Three Sisters is nationally known as being in the top 5 best driving roads in the country. After a few hours of long sweepers, tight crests, and hitting every apex possible it was time for lunch. After a catered BBQ meal, it was back on the road to finish the route. More beautiful rolling hills and tall standing oak trees awaited us on our twisted way back to the Hangar. Saturday evening featured a banquet, offering a chance to relax and share our adventures that day. There was even a surprise proposal that night! She said yes. Protection you can trust Just as our Eastern US Account Manager David Campbell said in the video, "we love cars" and here at XPEL we want you to have confidence while you drive. With our paint protection film on your car you'll have the piece of mind, and confidence to drive in road rallies, highway traffic, and every other situation down the road. Our XPEL Porsche put a fair share of miles on the clock that weekend, we had a couple bug guts to clean off, but not a nick or scratch in the high impact areas of the car that are protected by our ULTIMATE film including the full hood, front fenders, front bumper, headlights, and mirrors. XPEL ULTIMATE is self-healing, stain resistant (non-yellowing), texture free (no orange peel), and comes with a 10 year warranty. Utilizing our Design Access Program pre-cut pattern software we have over 87,000 kits for various makes and models. To learn more about XPEL or to find the nearest installer visit us at XPEL.com We were happy to be part of the event and look forward to next year, thank-you to all who came out and visited our booth. Here is our video recap and photo thread from the event.   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.

First Production McLaren P1 Protected with XPEL Paint Protection by PaintShield. LTD UK.

  17 Days That's how long it takes to build just one McLaren P1 supercar. 82 workers and 17 days to hand build them at the company's Woking, England headquarters. Compare that to Ford Motor Company who produces a car every 10 seconds. In 17 days Ford can make 149,000 cars. This is not to discredit McLaren in any way, but to show how meticulous an automaker can be when creating a halo car, especially when there will only be 375 examples produced. In 1992 McLaren created the F1, which in it's day was the fastest production car on the planet being able to hit 242 miles per hour. Needless to say when it came time to replace the F1 people were skeptical. 903 Horsepower Hybrid Supercar Yes, it's a hybrid. Alike it's supercar rivals the Porsche 918, and Ferrari LaFerrari, the McLaren P1 has an internal combustion engine coupled to an electric motor that have a combined horsepower output of 903. That's 9 Toyota Prius's worth of power. It accomplishes this feat with a 727-hp twin-turbo 3.8-liter V8 with 531 lb-ft of torque mated to a 176-hp, 192 lb-ft lightweight electric motor. This engine combination can push the P1 to 60 mph in 2.8 seconds, 124 mph in 6.8 seconds and on to 186 mph in 16.5 seconds. Which is 5.5 seconds quicker than the F1. Additionally, the P1 can hit the quarter mile in 9.8 seconds at 152 mph and finally onto an electronically limited top speed of 217 mph. We designed the McLaren P1 from the outset with one clear goal: to be the best driver's car on road and track. The confirmation of the performance figures underlines this. I am very proud of our Woking based team and everything they have achieved with this ambitious project. the handover of the first McLaren P1 is another milestone in our 50 year history, commented Mike Flewitt, CEO, McLaren Automotive Ltd. 4 Step Production Process The bespoke manufacturing process begins by prepping the full carbon fibre monocoque chassis and one piece MonoCage. In total this weighs less than 200 pounds. Next is the painting process. All 7 panels that piece the P1 together are made of carbon fibre. The clamshells, hood, bumpers, and doors are all hand painted in a dedicated paint shop at the McLaren Technology Centre. The paintwork alone takes 3 days, and all the panels are painted together to ensure flawless quality and color match. Third step is the trim assembly. Within this process are 10 smaller steps that take two technicians a full day to complete each step. Stage 4 is final assembly. Once the car reaches this step it is subject to rigorous testing including track time putting all the major components and computer settings through their paces. Topped off by the McLaren Monsoon Test in which 4,226 gallons of de-ionised recycled water are released onto the car to ensure there are no leaks in any of the seals. After another thorough diagnostics check the P1 is ready for delivery. #1 Paint Protection When you buy a car, especially a brand new car you want to protect it's finish and maintain your investment. So when the owner ordered this volcanic yellow P1 he wanted the best in paint protection film, and he wanted it installed before delivery. The owner has prior experience with PaintShield UK and knew there was no better crew for the job so he had the car shipped to Tom at PaintShield 10 days prior to launch for design and installation. Tom and his team went to work installing the best paint protection film on the market, XPEL ULTIMATE self-healing paint protection film.   XPEL Ultimate Self-healing Clear Bra XPEL ULTIMATE leads the industry with it's clarity, durability, gloss retention and more.
