Cost of Ultimate Plus™

If you’re the lucky owner of a brand new vehicle or a fully restored vintage car, it makes sense to protect your investment. Fully wrapping an average-sized car in clearcoat costs anywhere between $4,500 and $8,000. Partially wrapping just the front of your car costs between $2,000 and $2,500.

Ultimate Plus™ partial wrap

If you are budget sensitive but would still like to reap the benefits of Ultimate Plus™ paint protection, then a logical option is to partially wrap the areas of your vehicle that are most likely to incur damage on the road.

For example, some customers choose to just wrap the front of their vehicle, including the hood, fenders, bumper, mirrors, and headlights. These are the areas of a vehicle that are most impacted by flying stones, bird droppings, squashed bugs, and oil marks. Protect these areas and the paintwork on the rest of your vehicle is less likely to suffer damage.

Edge seal technology in XPEL products

Ultimate Plus™ contains special edge seal technology that prevents the film from lifting and delaminating once it is installed. This means you no longer have to worry about your paint protection film lifting at the edges and letting contaminants in.

‘Self-healing’ technology in XPEL films

If your Ultimate Plus film does sustain light scratches or swirl marks, they’re easily removed due to the ‘self-healing’ properties within the film. Simply add heat to the affected area, using either a heat gun or hot water, and the film with reform to remove the mark.

Ultimate Plus™ paint protection film lasts for between 10 and 15 years. Any XPEL film comes with a 10-year warranty from the day of installation.

Can I use an automated carwash with XPEL paint protection film?

Yes, it's fine to put a vehicle with XPEL's Ultimate Plus™ protective film through an automated car wash, but not until 48 hours after it has been installed. A newly installed film requires two full days at least to cure.
