I'm impressed! More of an answer than I ever thought I would get. I was leaning towards Xpel but on the fence due to the cost difference. I think you have just pushed me over.I ran an experiment. I emailed Expel and asked for a sample of their films, Ultimate and Extreme. I purchased a small piece of 3M Clear Bra and 3M VenturShield from Amazon. I also obtained a sample of Avery nano-Fusion. Now I had 5 films to evaluate. I purchased a piece of clear Lexan at Home Depot. I applied the films side by side. Then I placed the Lexan sheet over printed material and observed clarity. I looked for orange peel and adhesive distortion. Then I roughed the film surface using a kitchen scouring sponge. I placed the films in the sun to see if they self healed. I marked the film with a black marker to see if it could be cleaned. I tried applying polish.
Two films came out on top, Avery nano-Fusion and Expel Ultimate. The 3M films were last.
However, as someone else has said on this forum, the 3 most important things in selecting a film are: (1) the installer, (2) the installer, and (3) the installer.
