BMW E92 ///M3 Paint Protection Film Clear Bra

Protect your German Sports Car withpaint 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 managerDavid Dickreceived the call about the fourth generation M3. The owner of the car brought it to XPEL San Antonio to have the fullfront end protected. This includes the entire hood, front fenders, front bumper, headlights and mirrors.

XPEL Ultimate Self-healing Clear Bra

XPEL ULTIMATE leadsthe 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 cars 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 wirebrush 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 Patternsare created equal

At XPEL we pride ourselves on our pre-cut pattern software. By using a pre-cut pattern youll have less to worry about, since the installer willnot 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 its possible to wrap edges using a computer cut pattern which gives you a much better protection and installation. WithXPEL Technologies Corp., all patterns are available with precision cut wrapped edges where possible. Where a wrapped edge is not possible,for example around theparking sensors on a bumper, reverse cameras and more, the film is always machine cut with precision.
