The Venomous Dodge Viper SRT10 protected by XPEL Self-Healing Paint Protection

SRT10 With the brand new 2013 SRT Viper just now hitting showrooms, the Viper community, and muscle car community are on edge about this new snake. SRT claims the new SRT Viper will "Consume You" with its appearance and performance. We agree. The new SRT Viper is amazing in many ways, but let's not forget where it came from. From the original Viper in 1992 to the most recent predecessor fourth generation, the Dodge Viper is an iconic American muscle car. Even though now it sits under the "SRT" moniker. The SRT10 we had most recently in our shop is the only one in the world with it's exact color scheme, and aero kit. This one was slightly modified, but even the stock number are impressive. 0-60 in 3.4seconds from a 600bhp, 560lb ft torque 8.4L V10. We will bring you coverage of the 2013 SRT as soon as we get one in. For now you'll have to settle for this gorgeous SRT10. We installed a full front including, full hood, front bumper, front fenders, and more. We also installed door edge guards, door sill guards, rocker panels, headlights, and mirrors. The results are amazing.     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.

The Earth moving 800lb ft of torque Ford F350 Super Duty protected by XPEL Self-Healing Paint Protection Film – San Antonio, Texas

We Own Work Ford's truck campaign "We Own Work" sends a strong message. But wether you're a Ford guy or not, the Heavy Duty trucks are some of the most capable, durable, and powerful trucks on the market. The F350 that came into our shop was equipped with a 6.7L Power Stoke V8 Turbo Diesel engine. What this means is, no matter what you use your Super Duty for, you will have 400 horsepower and 800 lb ft of torque to get the job done. But these trucks aren't just about the numbers. They are relied on day in and day out by the men and women we count on every day. The first response truck at your local fire station, the ambulance you rode in when you were a kid and broke your leg, the construction truck that hauled the trailer of supplies that built your house, all of these are Heavy Duty trucks. Built Ford Tough, Protected by XPEL The owner of this F350 wanted to maintain the factory finish of his Super Duty. He called us, and came in next day. We installed our self-healing ULTIMATE paint protection film on the entire hood, front fenders, rock panels all the way back, and on the tailgate. All the high impact areas were covered and protected so that this work truck won't have to worry about paint chips, scratches, or swirl marks.     XPEL Ultimate Self-healing Clear Bra XPEL ULTIMATE leads the industry with it's clarity, durability, gloss retention and more.

Full STEALTH Matte Black Audi A7 – San Antonio, TX

Audi Sportback The Sportback design has been around for some time now. In Europe at least, but at the 2009 Detroit Auto Show, Audi revealed the A7 concept. The A7 is said to give you the luxury and class of the A8, with the styling of a coupe, or their A5 Sportback in Europe. Love it or hate it, this car turns heads.  Even with the 4,200 pound curb weight, the A7's 310 horsepower supercharged V6 will take you to 60 in 5.3 seconds, finishing the quarter mile in 13.8 seconds. Car Of The Year The A7 has already received numerous awards, Automobile Magazine claimed it at "2012 Automobile of the Year", and Esquire magazine made it their "2011 Car of the Year". The A7 is making a difference in the high end luxury segment. Keeping something this refined looking great is important. Cavender Audi here in San Antonio mentioned to the buyer of this A7 that we have a STEALTH film that gives any painted surface a matte finish, and that it also has a self-healing automotive clear coat that will protect you from rock chips, scratches, and swirl marks. The owner jumped at the chance to have the only matte black A7 in the area. So we covered the entire car front to back with our STEALTH film. We removed the headlights, and taillights to ensure a cleaner installation. The results speak for themselves.   XPEL Ultimate Self-healing Clear Bra XPEL ULTIMATE leads the industry with it's clarity, durability, gloss retention and more.

2014 Chevrolet Impala, No Longer Just a Rental Car. San Antonio, Texas

 '58 Chevy The Impala is now in it's tenth generation as the flagship sedan for Chevrolet. Named after a Southern African antelope, the Impala debuted in 1958 as the Chevrolet Bel Air Impala. The Impala trim was the best of the bunch, denoting this luxury were three taillights on each side, lesser models had two, and wagons only had one. Since then the Impala has been an iconic symbol for Chevrolet and General Motors. In it's first year of production, approximately 60,000 models were built, making it one of the best selling cars in the country. Just two years later, in 1960, more than 490,000 Impala's were produced. The most popular engine variant that year was a 348 cubic inch Super Turbo-Thrust Special, that packed triple two-barrel carburetors, and dual exhausts which all equaled to 335 horsepower. That's more power than you can get in today's models! Would you like rental insurance with that? Although there has been ten generations of the Impala, the car has been through three production runs: from 1958-1985, 1994-1996, and 2000- the present. Since then, the Impala has worn many suits. From being a New York City police cruiser, to being seen in dozens of movies and TV shows, including The Sandlot the the hit series Dexter, this Chevrolet has seen it all. More recently though, they've been spotted in rental car lots across the country. In a conversation I had with someone recently they told me, "I'm happy to see that Chevrolet has completely revamped the Impala for 2014, I'm tired of it being seen as a rental car." Whatever your opinion on the subject, the 2014 has made some huge changes and improvements. 10th Generation The 2014 Impala is loaded to the teeth with all new safety features, technology, engine components, etc... If you're impressed with the exterior styling, you'll be just as impressed with the interior. All models except the base LS, feature the Cadillac CUE like intuitive 8-inch Chevrolet myLink screen. But one of the most notably new features is the hotel room safe like vault. That 8-inch screen with the push of a button will lift up, allowing you to stash your valuables inside. To secure them, simply type in a four-digit code and it will lock everything inside, along with certain saved navigation functions such as your favorite contacts and locations. XPEL Benson Chevrolet here in San Antonio, Texas, knows the importance of paint protection film. They brought this Impala in to show off on their showroom floor. We installed a 24" hood, fender, bumper, mirror, and headlight kit, to protect all of the high impact areas of the car.

Ferrari designed Maserati GranTurismo protected with XPEL Paint Protection Film Clear Bra

GranTurismo Maserati was founded on December 1st, 1914 in Bologna, Italy. Currently headquartered in Modena, and currently owned by the Fiat Group, Maserati is known for it's blend of luxury and performance. In 2007 Maserati introduced the GranTurismo, which has long since been praised as being a car that can be used every day, with superb handling and a comfortable captivating ride. Powered by a Ferrari designed 4.2L V8 that makes 405Hp and 339ft lb of torque. One of MotorTrend's editors, when talking about the GranTurismo said, "It is, literally, a gran tourer. It is not a sports car...the big Maserati does not like to be hurried...It's best to back off to eight-tenths or less and go with the flow of the road." - Angus MacKenzie. This 4,300 lb machine wasn't meant to be thrashed around a corner, rather driven on a nice twisty road. Cars like this, that see a lot of scenic driving need to keep their paint protected. The owner of this GT came to XPEL for some serious coverage. We applied our Ultimate Self-Healing film to: the front bumper, hood, front fenders, mirrors, doors, rocker panels, roof, rear fenders, and headlights. This car is ready for some twisty roads.

The first North American Ferrari F12 Berlinetta auctioned off for $1.125 million now protected with XPEL Paint Protection Film Clear Bra

American Red Cross Last October, Hurricane Sandy hit the Eastern United States with a ferocious rage. This category 3 storm that had winds exceeding 100 miles per hour, caused an estimated $75 billion dollars in damage, and 147 direct fatalities. The United States alone accounted for $71.4 billion and 72 of the direct fatalities. Immediately after the storm people rushed to the aid of the victims of Hurricane Sandy doing anything they could to provide shelter, clothing, food, and more. Dozens and dozens of organizations contributed to the relief efforts as well. In the media, Disney - the ABC Television Group raised $17 million, while NBC raised $23 million. Automotive companies reached a hand in to help with Toyota donating $1 million, Hyundai with $500,000 and Mazda with $100,000. Slowly but surely the rebuilding process had begun. F12 for charity The prancing horse is a world renowned emblem that to some symbolizes wealth and luxury, while to others it's a long racing pedigree of performance. Ferrari holds the title for the most Formula 1 Championships, and because of this, they held nothing back when it came time to design the successor to the 599. Named "Supercar of the Year 2012" by Top Gear Magazine, the F12 Berlinetta is the latest and greatest out of Maranello. The F12 comes packed with a 6.5L V12 that produces an astounding 731 horsepower, and 509 lb-ft, coupled with a seven speed twin-clutch transmission that will rocket the F12 to 60 in just 3 seconds flat. So naturally, when this car was released there was a big hype with everyone waiting in line to get one. The first one in North America however, comes with a story. Formula 1 in Texas Last November, an auction was held after the North American Formula 1 Grand Prix in Austin, Texas. On the auction block was the very first Ferrari F12 in North America. All proceeds were to benefit the American Red Cross. Ferrari started the bid at the MSRP price of $315,888. By the time the gavel fell, they had reached a final sale price of $1,125,000. A very generous man from New York was in town for the race, heard about the auction, and decided to show up. Little did he know, he would be paying around four times the asking price for the very first F12 Berlinetta in America, making a very generous donation to the victims of Hurricane Sandy. For his generosity, Ferrari threw in a day at Maranello, lunch with the CEO, and a Ferrari watch. Paint Protection Once the Ferrari got back to his home in New York the owner wanted to keep the car looking brand new, every day. So he called up Xtreme Vehicle Coatings and made an appointment to have XPEL Ultimate paint protection film installed. Protecting the high impact areas of the beautiful F12, a 24" hood, fender, bumper, mirror, and headlight kit was installed.

Moab meet XPEL. JeepLab is an off-road modification shop in New Jersey, committed to finding the best available products for enhancing the off road experience. Specializing in Jeeps, these guys do whatever it takes to put their Jeeps through the paces. Testing everything they can get their hands on at the most extreme level. 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.

XPEL has held up. Here's the install thread. JeepLab and XPEL Ultimate. Moab Easter Jeep Safari So this year for Easter they drove 30 hours to Utah, for the Moab Easter Jeep Safari. The event is so big, that even the state of Utah lists the event on their website. "The annual Easter Jeep Safari is America's largest and best-known event promoting recreational four wheeling. It is held in Moab, Utah, and runs for nine days. It takes place the week before and including Easter Sunday. The actual dates of the Safari vary from year to year, since Easter may fall on a different Sunday every year." Utah.com They go on to say that they attract over 1,000 off road ready vehicles. What an incredible event! 15 months after installation and the XPEL wrap is still saving my bacon! Ross from JeepLap gave us a recap after the event of how the film held up. This is what his email said. Off-Road Ready We want to thank JeepLab again for the amazing testimonial. It's people like you that give us real world results.

2013 MazdaSpeed3 Turbo Hot Hatch protected from rock chips by XPEL Paint Protection

Zoom-Zoom The "MazdaSpeed" variants provide the greatest driving pleasure for the Mazda enthusiast. Since it's creation by a team of racers in 1967, MazdaSpeed has been an important part of Mazda history.  Beginning their motor sports debut was the Mazda Cosmo110S. In an incredible international debut at the 1968 "Marathon de la Route" at the Nordshleife,  Nürburgring, an 84-hour endurance race, the Mazda Cosmo took fourth place. An outstanding achievement for a brand new team with a brand new car. Mazda then campaigned across the U.S, Japan, and Europe in endurance and conventional races. Le Mans The Cosmo was replaced by the R100, then the RX-2, and RX-3. It was in 1978 that Mazda took it up another notch or two and came out with the first generation RX-7. This new RX model went on to achieve an unprecedented 100 wins over the next 12 years. But in 1991, Mazda did something no other Japanese automaker had done or has since done. They captured an overall win at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in the Mazda 787B. Rotary engines were banned at Le Mans after that season so Mazda changed their focus to the business side of motor sports and started developing aftermarket parts and accessories. Today they have show room "MazdaSpeed" versions like the Speed3 below. They infuse their cars with the "soul of a sports car". This 2013 MazdaSpeed3 comes with a 2.3L I-4 that produces 263hp, and a whopping 280 lb ft of torque. With plenty of cargo space, seating for five, and highway fuel economy around 35 miles per gallon this hot hatchback offers a bargain for the price. North Park Mazda sent over this Speed3 for an XPEL Ultimate film 24" hood, fender, bumper, and mirror kit. XPEL Ultimate is the world's first self-healing film and comes with a 10 year warranty.
