Scion FR-S

Among enthusiasts, it doesn't get much better at the price point of the Scion FR-S. With a base price of $25,255 you get a front engine, rear drive, two door coupe capable of endless grins and the ability to master any apex. When word first got out of Toyota and Subaru working together on a low cost, rear drive, sports coupe, some people were curious how it would turn out. Now that the car has been on the market a little while and people have gotten their hands on them, there's almost nothing but positive talk. The standard and only power-plant in both cars, the FR-S and BRZ is a 2.0L 200 horsepower, 151 lb-ft of torque inline 4-cylinder engine. Couple that with a 6-speed manual and you get one of the best driving cars on the market. Last year it was even a contender in MotorTrend's Best Driver's Car competition and it finished top 5! Specs:
  • Curb Weight - 2,730lbs.
  • 0-60 MPH in 6.2 seconds.
  • Quarter mile in 14.8 seconds at 95.1 MPH.
  • Braking 60-0 114 feet.
  • EPA CITY/HWY 22/30 MPG.

Paint Protection

The owner of this FR-S knows that on those windy roads, and quick hairpin turns, there's bound to be some rocks and road debris. To protect against that he brought his Argento silver FR-S for XPEL's ULTIMATE film. Our ULTIMATE film is self-healing, stain resistant, optically clear, and comes with a 10 year warranty. We installed a 24" hood, fender, bumper, and mirror kit. In addition, we installed headlight kits, leading roof edge, and a-pillars.

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.
