  1. Madico Wincos would come off with no glue. I used to use Wincos 90 for windshields.
  2. They’re really not that hard to do. I also like that the back window requires a 20” roll. I do spend extra time scrubbing the back windows.
  3. Every single film manufacturer claims scratch resistant.
  4. I just switched to Clean Cut bladed snd am loving it.
  5. I adjust on the car. I don’t adjust through the software
  6. I use dap and don’t edit. Once in a while I’ll have to hand adjust/cut but it’s no big deal for me
  7. Just did my F10 M5 with Xpel XR Blue 80 on the windshield, XR plus 35 on the sides and rear, and XR Plus 70 on the moonroof.
  8. I’d say get it redone elsewhere. They’re so many inconsistencies and sloppiness. That is just who they are.
  9. I did an e36 with Plus 70 last month. His car was in great shape and he just wanted heat rejection. Good stuff
  10. Many times it’s from the application process. Is the film curling? Maybe the film is hitting the deck or other parts while installing
  11. Hate cutting visor strips. Main reason why I’m getting a plotter. I have a 60” roll of 5%. I just pull out what I need and cut on the film handler
  12. 07 Bmw 335i with Xpel XR Plus 35 and XR blue 80 on the windshield.
  13. I don’t see the reason for dealership work. You should be able to get the work yourself, and charge what you’re worth. I do 4-5 cars/day charging 350-600 a car. Most dealerships want to pay $150/car, and i’d have to wait up to 3 months for the check. And id have to drop everything for the dealership if they call.
  14. My best guess would be Amazon for that purpose
  15. I’ve used Solar Gard for 16 years. HP charcoal had major delamination problems. Some customers would swear that they didn’t roll down the windows, ever, and would still have major delamination after a few years. HP Supreme, NR Supreme, and Ultra Performance will not fade or turn purple. You’ll be amazed at how they’ll keep their color. But the ahesive is crap. And it’s getting worse. I stopped using Solar Gard in December. I was starting to see 2-year old Ultra Perfromancd jobs bubble up on back windows. Sun Tek is, uh, ok. It’s cheap. I used CXP and CIR. CXP does not block the heat that they advertise. No way. And CIR is way too green. Both Sun Tek and Solar Gard scratches like crazy. Especially SG Galaxy.
  16. Here is Hawaii we can have total VLT at 70% for windshields. We use Wincos 90. Passes every time. We do 3-400 windshields/year. Before it was legal, people would just ask for it. We used to do about 150/year before it was legal
  17. I love this product. Never had a problem pulling it out. Just make sure you pull upwards towards the ceiling. On Mercedes CLAs, this is almost a must on the back glass
