I'm considering a paint protector. I've read a lot of good reports about XPEL, but recently ran across an interesting comparison between Scotch Guard Pro, Sun Tech, and XPEL. Take a look:

Also wondering if it's really necessary to have a professional install these products?

THe Scotchguard Pro looks really good but hard to find prices or installers in my area Oregon......I would get that over Expel based on the video if it were available

Scotch Guard Pro looks pretty good in the video but I've heard nothing but great things about Xpel. I'm having Xpel applied tomorrow and Cquartz applied Wednesday which will be applied over the Xpel. Now with Cquartz being applied over the Xpel, will the surface be more easily cleanable and/or durable, that remains to be seen. Perhaps others on the forum who have had this done can attest to this.

Had my Lamborghini and one of my R8's covered in the top grade of XPEL. Very pleased with the results. After the recommended curing time, having CQuartz applied.

I wonder if that test was with Xpel Ultimate, in the video he just says Xpel, but the Scotch Guard "Plus" looks pretty good, I'm guessing "Ultimate" may be just as good.

When I saw the video, I wondered if the sample on the left had any special, extra topical treatment to make it easier for the white mark to come off.

Wonder about doing Cquartz over Xpel. Since Cquartz is formulated to bond with the paint molecules, and it can not reach those thru the Xpel, does it really do any extra good for the $800-$1000 cost? Maybe other cheaper sealants would work as well over a wrap when you can not make contact directly with painted surface??

I did not wrap the entire car so intended on applying CQuartz to the unwrapped parts. The XPEL installer seemed to imply they (the CQuartz certified shop) could apply CQuartz to the entire car, but I could be mistaken.

Here is my Sepang Blue R8 being wrapped in XPEL Ultimate:

Where'd you get the work done? I'm considering getting xpel or scotchguard, but need to know a reputable place to get it done. (Dont want the guys doing poor work and/or joy rides after I drop the car off etc) I'm in the dallas/ft worth area and have seen a list of certified installers, but would rather find some one by word of mouth
