“The service provided far exceeded my expectations from the beginning to end. I took my Kia Telluride to Matt for a ceramic coating and was extremely happy with the results. What I was most impressed with is the professionalism. Matt took the time to explain the details of the ceramic process and differences in the packages. He is very honest in his assessment of the vehicles paint condition and did not try to up sale me on the packages. He kept me updated on each phase of the process with pictures along the way. Once I picked up my vehicle he did a good job of explaining and demonstrating how to care for a ceramic coated vehicle. I would highly recommend him to anyone wanting their car/truck ceramic coated or detailed.”

2023 BMW m340i Clear Bra Install & Five Year Ceramic Coating

This is the second Brooklyn Gray BMW we have done at Harker Heights Ceramic Coating, and we have to say – the color is just beautiful! (The other vehicle was a 2022 BMW X4, which also received clear bra/paint protection film). There are quite a few of these Brooklyn Gray BMWs driving around the Killeen/Fort Hood/Copperas Cove/Harker Heights areas (also an X5M Competition that was for sale locally at the Killeen Ford dealer). 

 

Here we used the brand Legend PPF (the FIRST clear bra company to offer a 12 year warranty) to install clear bra/paint protection film on the hood, fenders, front bumper, mirrors, door cups, and pillars. If you have ever owned a car with the piano black side pillars, you know how awful of a time you can have trying to keep them scratch and swirl free (we just assume any set and every set will always be swirled)!

 

After we finished installing the clear bra/paint protection film, we installed a five year ceramic coating using SB3 Coatings Alpha. We plan to have the client back very shortly for more clear bra and ceramic coating pieces!

Ceramic Coating Choices

*Note: SB3 Coatings (sb3coating.com) are great coatings, and are similar to other offerings we have had in the past. You may be more familiar with other brands’ offerings, so here is a quick reference to help you understand our transition.

 – SB3 Coatings Solo is similar to the Competitors Sport package (although SB3 Solo has a one-year warranty whereas Competitors Sport has a six-month warranty)

– Our SB3 Coatings Omega is similar to our Competitor’s Bronze (Competitor’s Top Coat) two-year coating

– SB3 Coatings Thirty3 is a three-year ceramic coating, which is a warranty period we have not had in the past.

– Our SB3 Coatings Alpha is a five-year coating. similar to the Competitor’s Silver (five-year) package. This uses Competitors 9H (one layer) and Competitors Top Coat (one layer). SB3 Coatings Alpha utilizes a single coating system. This helps us get your vehicle back to you faster without sacrificing quality.

– SB3 Coatings Trinity is a seven-year coating. We did not offer this previously with Competitors.

– Our SB3 Coatings Vortex is a two-year ceramic coating similar to Competitors Wheel & Caliper or Competitors 9H (when used on wheels).

– SB3 Coatings Optic is a one-year ceramic coating. This is similar to Competitor’s Glass and is used on your windshield/glass surfaces.

We have access to many brands of ceramic coatings. We always choose what is best for the client in their particular situation. 

Our Material

For this vehicle, we used Legend Paint Protection Films (https://legendppf.com/). We talked a lot in a FAQ article about what the major differences are between clear bra/paint protection film/PPF companies, if any, between major film manufacturers like Xpel, SunTek, Eastman, Llumar, 3M, Ceramic Pro – Kavaca, STEK, Flexishield, Global, Legend and more (https://hhceramiccoatings.com/what-is-the-difference-between-major-clear-bra-brands-faq/). The key takeaway is that the primary differences are in the properties of the adhesive, which is something installers have to deal with, but generally, don’t have an effect on anything the client sees.

 

People frequently ask about Xpel clear bra/paint protection film, and if Legend PPF compares to Xpel at all. A lot of people use Xpel to mean clear bra because Xpel is one of the most popular brands. We also discuss Xpel and if it’s the same as clear bra, here: https://hhceramiccoatings.com/is-xpel-the-same-as-clear-bra-faq/
