XPEL Paint Protection Film: Aston Martin DB9 Volante


We have just finished this beautiful 2016 Aston Martin DB9 Volante, with every single panel protected with XPEL Ultimate Plus paint protection film.

While the paint condition was good for a 4-year-old vehicle, the new owner had highlighted some existing stone chips, scratches and areas of dullness and wanted to truly improve the car’s appearance and keep it that way for years to come.

XPEL Paint Protection Film Benefits

One of the most impressive things about XPEL Paint Protection Film (PPF), is it has the ability to hide swirls and scratches.

Xpel Ultimate Plus film is 0.8mm thick and will self-level across the surface to which it is applied, resulting in a finish that is better than brand new.

Polishing a car’s paintwork can achieve fantastic results, however, there is a huge downside to removing heavier damage on a prestige car.

In order to remedy a deep scratch, you have to remove a significant amount of original factory paintwork, and this is a problem when it comes to the longevity and aesthetic of a vehicle such as this.

Even when you can achieve a near-perfect finish with polishing, you are still left with the problem of how to keep it looking perfect, and as we have previously discussed, ceramic coatings can only do so much.

When it comes to prestige cars such as Ferrari, Lamborghini, Bentley or Aston Martin, the cars future value lies heavily in it being in the original condition and not a patchwork quilt of repairs and paint resprays.

Xpel PPF will not only protect your car from whatever the open road can throw at it, but it offers a significant improvement to your car’s paintwork without the need for extensive polishing.

This is yet another reason why we install Xpel paint protection film exclusively.
