Constructed from using a combination of advanced elastomeric polymers, XPEL Ultimate’s special clear coating will not only prevent the film from discoloring, but it will heal itself from any swirl marks or light scratches, according to the official manufacturer website.

This special coating, when applied, will leave the surface indistinguishable from the factory paint, and when installed by one of their network-approved contractors, the installers will make sure the alignment around the surfaces meets the exact specifications, creating the perfect invisible barrier, protecting you from all the hazards on the road today.

How much does XPEL Ultimate cost?

The costs of having a professional install the XPEL Ultimate coating will greatly depend on the professional you hire, the vehicle you drive, what you want protected and your geographical location.  From the looks out of it, if you were to hire a professional, you will want to budget anywhere from as little as $500 to apply it on a few parts to as much as $4,000+ to coat the entire car.

Average prices
Partial front end (includes up the hood, fender, front bumper, mirrors and headlights)$900-$1,250
Full front (includes the entire hood, front fenders, front bumper, mirrors and headlights)$1,850-$2,400
Full car (includes every painted surface on the car)$4,000-$8,000

On this forum thread, a member said he was quoted anywhere from $5,000 to $9,000 to wrap the entire car, while another member on this same thread said everything, but the windows and sensors, would cost him $4,500.

To budget, use the official XPEL calculator as seen here, and once you find the prices, add another 20 to 30 percent to figure out what an installer would charge.

Facts to know

XPEL recommends asking the installer to wrap the edges where possible.  This means the wrap, when applied, will wrap over the edge of the panel, creating a cleaner look.

Always visit an installer’s shop before paying a deposit.  You will want to check out some previous work and ask about their experience as well to ensure you’re making an educated choice.  To find an XPEL approved installer, you can do so by going here.

The product does come with a 10-year warranty against any yellowing, peeling, cracking, discoloration and/or hazing.  If it fails, the company will replace it, including the labor.
