    Nope, two different companies. If you haven't seen it already, check the link in post #26, above.

      That's great to hear. Our PPF is virtually invisible and will save you tons of money down the road on paint work from scratches and nicks from road debris. Thanks for the kind words about our product.

        I am looking to Suntek because I want the glossier finish, which is true compared to Expel. Plus Expel seems to be using their name to charge exorbitant prices forgetting what made them popular in the first place.

        In my opinion, anyone who pays as much or more for a PPF than it would cost for a new paint job is unwise.
        Hi White Horse, STek and SunTek are two different companies. We are owned by Eastman, as is LLumar. Our PPF Clear does have an ultra glossy finish, many customers remark about it. Our dealer network has been doing many C8's over the last month or so and our patterns for this car are top notch. Another thing to keep in mind is, no other brand has the technology that we do for 3D pattern scanning, which allows us to have the most precise patterns and the best custom fit for the C8. Our rear bumper pattern for the C8 is the actual production model C8, other competitiors are using the pattern for the sample C8's and there are fitment issues with those patterns. Check out the C8's we have been protecting lately at our Instagram below. We have been doing more than any other brand on social and are proud to be part of this forum. Feel free to reach out if you have any questions.

          Thanks for the informative reply. I'm leaning toward Suntek. I do have a question.

          It seems that PPF manufacturers all take pride in their computer-accurate pattern scanning. However, I am not sure of what that means and here's why. I don't want to see seams and lines because a pattern does not overlap the edges and neither do most other people. I saw one Suntek application at a local installer, and I could easily make out lines along edges that would not have been there if the installer would simply have used a little more material to wrap over and around the edge. I decided to NOT go with that installer.
          When you refer to patterns are these patterns that overlap edges or are cut to match a line or both?

          This is expensive stuff and it seems untenable to spend such money on a job that literally cuts corners. I don't want computer scanned patterns, I want a professional person cutting a sheet that overlaps every edge possible. I realize some are not.

              Hi, what you are looking for is called bulk ppf installation. It doesn't rely on patterns, the installer actually custom cuts the ppf to fit your C8 perfectly with overlapping the edges where appilcable. Computer cut patterns can have edges wrapped as well, the installer would just need to add that into the software before cutting it out on the plotter. It's important to ask these questions before having the work done. If you would like help finding a suntek installer in your area that can provide the specific service your asking for. Let me know i can help.

                    Will they PPF XPEL your vehicle before museum delivery or just after? Wondering if I would have to stay an extra night if I chose them. Any idea what they charge for a Bikini Acura + side rockers with the museum discount?

                      As of this time, you must take delivery at the museum before they can wrap your car. They have plans to coordinate this before you take delivery, but as of now it has not been given the green light by GM.
