At AutoSmart, we use XPEL Ultimate, which is the best self-healing protection film on the market. XPEL protection films offer a wide selection of films to protect your vehicle from paint damage.
This film sheds contaminants like no other film. It combines the clarity of a clear film with the defense of an elastomeric polymer that self heals. The film protects your vehicle from rocks, bug acids, salt, oils, gravel, tree sap, bird droppings and magnesium chloride.
The film will heal quickly and will continue to do so over time as long as scratches don’t penetrate the film. The average time for a scratch to heal is about an hour, but if the temperature is warmer the healing time will accelerate.
There are many kits for each vehicle. Whether you want a rocker panel or your whole vehicle covered, XPEL has a kit for your needs.
If you’re interested in vehicle paint protection, call AutoSmart for a quote. Our staff will discuss your options, go over any questions or concerns you may have, and schedule your appointment.
After your XPEL Ultimate Film is installed, wait 48 hours before washing it. After that setting time, any normal car soap can be used to wash it. However, in order to prolong the life of your film, we suggest regularly washing, waxing and sealing the vehicle. Unlike other films you can wax and seal your vehicle without causing any damage to this film.
XPEL is so confident that its product is the best paint protection film on the market that it comes with a 10 year warranty. This warranty covers peeling, cracking, yellowing, hazing and staining. If any of these occurs on the vehicle, XPEL will reimburse both the film and labor costs.

The key to surviving an emergency is preparation. You may not have been a Boy Scout, but that does not mean you are at the mercy of fate. While watching episodes of Bear Grylls may give you some entertaining comfort, it is unlikely he will be there to hold your hand. Imagine yourself on a trip to an unfamiliar location. The car dies, or you’ve slipped into a ditch. You pull out your cell phone and the battery is dead or there is no coverage. When things start going wrong, the items we take for granted tend to fail us. Having a simple plan allows us to adapt and move forward. Our survival kit will be the key.
Safe operation of vehicle.
Simple roadside breakdown.
Extended breakdown, now what?
Other tips: Stay with your car. It provides shelter and it is easier for rescue crews to locate a stationary object. To add visibility at night for the rescue crew, leave the dome light on. In an effort to conserve your battery, only use hazard flashers when someone approaches. The tail pipe must be free of snow to avoid carbon monoxide poisoning. Running the auto for ten minutes an hour and leaving the window cracked during operation of the engine should reduce exposure to exhaust fumes. A hand held crank radio or a weather radio would give you an idea of future weather reports. A cell phone adapter for your car would allow you to recharge and make that 911 call. Once on the phone with 911, stay on the line. Do not hang up! If you absolutely need to abandon the car, leave a note with your contact information and your planned route of departure. Leave the note on the windshield so it can be easily found.
