My car got full front done today using the XPEL kit. My installer e-mailed me, "Installation went well today! Xpel design was incredible! The kit coverage is amazing, best design I have seen so far out of our boys at HQ. The bumper kit dips, wraps, tucks everywhere." Looking forward to seeing the results tomorrow!

Whoever gets their LBB car done please report on the contrast. Curious Expel looks different than the paint. Most colors it seems to not show at all or unless your looking very closely. I would like to know before I get my car done. Not that I have a car yet so no hurry I suppose.

I just took a look at the XPEL website and, in the drop-down list of vehicle maufacturers they have only:

Audi
Hyundai
Kia
Lamborghini
Mercedes
Porsche

No BMW.....

The M2 (full front end and rocker panels) is in our DAP (our cutting software program). When we have more kits, which will be coming in a few weeks it should be available for viewing on the website.

I'm planning on giving them my car either this weekend or early next week (pending delivery -- it's on a truck right now). As far as I know, I will be the first one they receive that's getting a full wrap.

I can see absolutely nothing by way of contrast between my full front and the rest.

Actually what surprised me was that, according to the list, XPEL don't do BMW's at all !

I was sent the diagram for the front of the M2 by the XPEL agent in Geneva, Switzerland.
The prices, in $ US, are $ 2767 for the front and $ 6313 for the whole car for XPEL Ultimate.
In Paris, France it's $ 1690 and $ 5637 respectively (the front seems too cheap in comparison to the full car)
Furthermore a full colour wrap would be $ 3382, on top of which one can, if one wants, place the XPEL at the prices above.
I didn't ask about protecting the rear wings.

To clarify, not saying my car would be the first wrapped car (think we've all seen the green wrap by now). :P

I'm doing XPEL stealth. My car is LBB.

I didn't realize XPEL was based in San Antonio. In Austin they have a corporate owned installation shop too! Anyone have experience with this shop in Austin?

I can't wait to see the Stealth on LBB! My LBB is getting full front (bumper, mirrors, full hood, front fenders), rockers, rear fenders, A-pillar, roofline,etc...Basically all parts facing forward in Ultimate. If I get a full wrap done in the future (4-5 years down the line), it'll be something crazy like frozen orange, Rosso Corsa, El Primero Mexico Blue, etc. I like boisterous colors, you could say.

To those that have had the front done can you post a pic of the area around the side gill for me? On my install there is no coverage the height of the gill from the rear-most edge of the gill to the front door edge. Normal?

May I ask what list you're referring to? We wrap nearly every vehicle manufactured.
