WHAT HAS BEEN DONE ON THE CAR
Our recent client is the owner of this beast, the new 2020 BMW M8 Competition. The car was painted in a glossy grey when it was delivered to its new owner. The only thing the car needed was a good protection all around its body against any kind of damage. The client could have opted for the Xpel Ultimate plus paint protection film which would have made the car have a more glossy look. Instead, he decided to have a full protection of the Xpel Stealth paint protection film which has a matte finish.
4 MAJOR BENEFITS OF XPEL PAINT PROTECTIVE FILMS
1. COST SAVINGS
XPEL film protects the lead vulnerable edges of your vehicle. These are the areas that take the most wear and tear on your vehicle. Exterior damage to these areas greatly reduces the value of your asset. A clear film for cars such as XPEL ULTIMATE PLUS is a great way to save costs.
2. PROTECTION FROM IMPACTFUL MATERIALS
A rock chip from the freeway or roadside can be an absolute nightmare. Preventing a chip on the vulnerable areas of your car that may require paint repair can be a huge relief.
3. REDUCE THE SWIRLS
XPEL ULTIMATE PLUS greatly reduces the likelihood of getting unsightly wash lines that cause swirling and spider webbing. XPEL’s self-healing film self corrects wash line damage, and minor abrasions using only the heat from the sun.
4. DRIVE A NEW CAR EVERY DAY
XPEL film keeps your vehicle’s paint in factory-quality condition. Let your vehicle shine for years to come by protecting your paint with a protective film.
Challenges faced while applying the paint protection film.
PPF installation is very difficult, time consuming, very intricate, and costly. The material isn’t cheap and if there is dirt, hair or silvering (film that is stretched too much) means that piece has to be replaced.
Bubbles, lift lines, and water under the film are common occurrences with every install. Lift lines are where a section has been laid then has to be lifted to remove an air bubble or speck of dirt. Air bubbles will evaporate over several days (or weeks, depending on weather) when the film is exposed to heat. If air bubbles are still on the film, the only way to remove it is to suck the air out with a needle. Expect these things to happen right after a PPF installation.
