    i am considering a clear bra for the front bumper, headlights and the piece that has the Kia badge on it. In Australia we have 3m, suntek and xpel. Can anyone give me some feedback on which is the best and why?

    I have Suntek Ultra PPF applied to my Stinger, top of the range film with self healing properties, 10 year limited warranty, happy with it so far after 2 months, have heard 3M and Xpel are good also.

    Suntek and xpel are the top according to several installers I spoke to on this. 3m is a bit dated in their tech, according to the same sources. My xpel install is still flawless 6 months later.

    My installer used Xpel and she swears by it (10 years install experience), saying the 3M product has improved, but still degrades over time. I solicited a few different quotes, and while most shops said they would install whatever I wanted, their preference was Xpel as well. I didn't hear any opinions on Suntek. If you google Xpel vs 3m vs Suntek you should have enough reading to keep you going for a while ... :)

    I've only had the film on a few days, but am very pleased with the install - she took the time necessary, and really went the extra mile. The protected surfaces are smooth and clear as glass. Whichever way you go, make sure you get an experienced and well regarded installer to apply it. There are a lot of people getting into this looking for easy money, and setting up shop with virtually no experience.
