Clear Bra Review

Just went to Lucci Elite in Orange County. They performed a full front end clear bra that covered, full hood, bumper, fenders, headlights, mirrors, inside door handles. They use the new Xpel material. First off in regards to Lucci Elite, they are beyond top notch service, left my vehicle there, was given a loaner vehicle for the time period it took to complete the vehicle. They include in the price a full Lucci Elite Paint Correction/Detail. The value is huge. In most my past vehicles I have used the 3m Venture shield product and have been pretty happy with it honestly. So the bar was already pretty high. With some doubts Xpel proved me wrong. There product aside from being a self healing material, has absolutely no affect on the colors appearance of the car. The orange peel is literally non existent. However when looking directly at the applied material and the paint not covered right next to it, there is a slight hint of dullness but that is going to be expected with any clear bra but no question a better product then the 3M. Overall I am extremely happy with the turn out and with the xpel product. I cant say enough good things about lucci elite. They really do amazing work and are worth the money. I will be posting a full write up of the work done with a lot of photographs that Lucci took during the process. Will be posting next week.

Are there any issues with covering the headlights, like heat build-up?
