SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS, September 20, 2005…XPEL Technologies Corp. (CNQ: XPEL.U) announced today the appointment of Synergy Racing as an XPEL Product Dealer. Founded in 1969 as G&W Motorwerks, and developed out of a love for Porsche, Virginia-based Synergy Racing (“Synergy”) is a customer-focused race business, concentrating on the needs of its sponsors rather than the desires of the teams themselves. The Synergy team, comprised of a ‘who’s who’ of drivers, kicked off the 2005 season with six cars at Daytona, including two Daytona Prototypes, two GT entries, and two Grand Sport entries in the Grand-Am Cup series.

Kerrigan Smith of Synergy Racing stated, “Even after 36 years in the industry, Synergy is an ever-evolving racing business. We are known for instituting dynamic new approaches and embracing unique options for the future success of our company. One of these newly discovered options are the colored headlight film products from XPEL Technologies Corp. Before discovering these on the web, Synergy used paint for the ‘yellow required tint’ on our Rolex series cars. For the last three races, we have been running XPEL headlight protection on our points-leading Porsche driven by David Murry and Craig Stanton, and all we have had to do is wipe them off. In addition, the clarity of the products dramatically enhances the overall appearance of our cars.”

Responding to questions of XPEL’s product durability, Mr. Smith, commented, “During the Cup race at Barber, our Porsche 997 suffered a heavy frontal impact. When the car got back to the garage we began to inspect the damage. As you could imagine, the inner workings of the headlight resembled a bag of broken glass, but oddly enough the outer lens was still intact, with little damage to the XPEL headlight covers. Synergy Racing’s need for just such innovative products has sparked us to become an XPEL Dealer, and we look forward to a successful and long-term relationship with the XPEL Team.”

XPEL Technologies Corp. (, publicly traded on the Canadian Trading and Quotation System Exchange, is the worldwide leader in the electronic delivery of top automotive aftermarket products, utilizing the Internet as an integral component for its design, manufacturing, distribution and customer relationship strategies. The Company’s DAP software utility offers Dealers the industry’s most efficient and productive tool set for better serving customers with “best of breed” solutions in real-time. XPEL has clear advantages over the competition through its proprietary corporate framework consisting of an expansive library of installation-friendly window tint, paint and headlight protection products, coupled with a unique web-based remote manufacturing and distribution software, superior installation training curriculum and facilities, and established and growing sales distribution channels.
