It's because everyone gets suckered into XPEL. Every other PPF has ceramic coating infused in it.

That statement is not correct and I am not a sucker.

I shopped around and the local shops that sold brands like STEK, Ceramic Pro, etc. which incorporated hydroponic qualities in their PPF gave me similar quotes to Xpelís Ultimate Fusion. It was pretty much apples to apples and I went with the shop that I felt would do the best work.

XPEL is an inferior product to almost all of the other premium brands. There is tons of technical data to back this up. You are paying for marketing. That said, you are bang on with the going to the best installer comment for sure.

You don't know what you're talking about. Sometimes it's ok to not talk.
