    Happy New Year everyone, we started the new year off right with some amazing cars.

    We can’t wait to see the new cars that come out this year!

    Are you looking forward to a certain make or model this year, or do you have something on delivery…we’d love to hear about it, comment below.

    Here is a brand new Model X that we are making pre-cut patterns for and also installing XPEL ULTIMATE to the entire car!

    The patterns will be available soon, so you can have them installed on your Model X by an XPEL authorized installer. To find one click: XPEL LOCATOR

    Stay tuned for finished installation pictures! Here a few teaser photos to get everyone started...

    Will you also be making a template for the glossy black plastic area behind each seat? If so can you share some pictures?

    Thanks.

    I suspect this would be rather popular.

    When you answer, also tell us whether we can tone down the gloss finish in some fashion as well.

    Our film mimics the gloss finish of the clear coat, so it will not tone down or enhance the gloss. That being said we DO manufacture a product called XPEL STEALTH, its a satin-finish clear bra. So it transform stock glossy paint and transforms it to a satin finish.

    We have not go a pattern for the seats yet, but it's on the design list for the next mX we get.

    I'm interested in seat-back protection as well.

    My local installer did not know about this or mention it when I asked about this. Any recommendation on how they can get the seat back kit? What should I tell them?

    Who's your installer? They should be able to look up the pre-cut kits in the DAP (our cutting software program that installers use)

    Just to confirm, this will just provide a clear coat PPF on top of the seat backs, but they will still have that glossy look/finish, right? Does it help with the fingerprints...?

    It will protect the seatbacks, just like the film does on the outside of your vehicle. Take a look at this thread for better pictures and description: Vendor - Model X Seat Back Protection

    The film will make it easier to wipe the seats down

    Awesome and thank you! Looks great!! I will let them know that this exists and to use the DAP to cut the seat backs. The Model X I have coming will be a 7 seater, but only need the first two rows wrapped (two seat backs for front seats, and 2nd row w/ 3 seats).

    Thank you again and appreciate the prompt responses!
