XPEL INTRODUCES REPAIR AND REPLACEMENT ROAD HAZARD WARRANTY PROGRAM

- Industry-First for Paint and Headlight Protection Products - - Significant Profit Opportunity for New Car Dealerships -

SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS, October 12, 2005...XPEL Technologies Corp. (CNQ: XPEL.U) today announced the introduction of an industry-first "Repair and Replacement" Road Hazard Warranty Program covering XPEL automotive Paint and Headlight Protection products. Unmatched by any competitor, this powerful new program is truly an exceptional profit opportunity for any new car store. The XPEL Road Hazard Warranty Program can increase a dealership's profits on each unit, not only through the offering of the finest Paint and Headlight Protection Products available, but also the resale of the XPEL Road Hazard Warranty. Consumers not only receive real peace of mind, but also a valuable product for maintaining their vehicle's value and appearance...a remarkable "win-win" for both the dealership and the new car customer. W. Rege Brunner, XPEL's Chairman and CEO, stated, "This may indeed be the most significant product offering XPEL has ever launched. Not only from the standpoint of potentially generating substantially increased revenues for the Company, but also giving XPEL Product Dealers a powerful competitive edge for selling into new car stores. Arming our dealers with this 'paper' product gives them the ability to better speak the language of the finance and insurance ("F&I") departments at car dealerships. The offering of road hazard warranties through F&I has become more commonplace, and is a highly desirable selling activity by F&I managers for driving a dealership's profits."
