2023 Mazda CX9 - Clear Bra/PPF Installation! | Serving Copperas Cove/Killeen/Harker Heights
2023 Mazda CX9 - Clear Bra/PPF
Are you a Mazda fan? We are! We have had two Mazda MX5 (Miata), three Mazda CX5 (you can see our PPF video where we did our most recent one), and now a 2023 Mazda CX9. Mazdas have never given me issues, and despite owning over 30 vehicles in the last 25 years, the most common one I have ever purchased more than once is the CX5. Because we liked our CX5 Turbo Signature so much, we decided to trade our 2020 Ford Explorer for this Mazda CX9 Grand Touring. For the money, Mazda gives you many awesome options, such as heated front and rear seats, heated steering wheel, cooled front seats, heads-up displays, you name it.
Much like our fun CX5, which received a full front clear bra/PPF/paint protection film installation, so did our new 2023 Mazda CX9. Our full front clear bra/PPF/paint protection film package is probably our most popular package. No full-body patterns are available for the Mazda CX5 or CX9, so we will need to custom/bulk install for the rest of the vehicles (when we can find a moment!). Unlike our CX5, which got rock chips on the front bumper before getting it in the shop, we drove our Mazda CX9 and parked it until we had the time to install the film. Clear bra/PPF/paint protection film will protect against MOST rock chips and scratches. We want to get your vehicle in here as soon as you get it, to avoid having rock chips ruin the film’s appearance. Rock chips under the film will appear as white bubbles or debris, especially on darker-colored vehicles. Some lighter vehicles may obscure that light-colored “bubble.”

PAINT PROTECTION FILM/PPF/CLEAR BRA OPTIONS:
Typically, we would use STEK clear bra, Llumar, or Legend PPF gloss or matte paint protection film. Next, This clear bra article covers the major differences between clear bra/paint protection film/PPF companies, if any. Moreover, there are minimal differences between major film manufacturers like Xpel, SunTek, Eastman, Llumar, 3M, STEK clear bra, Flexishield, Global, Legend, and more. Importantly, the key takeaway is that the primary differences are in the properties of the adhesive, which installers have to deal with, but generally don’t affect anything the client sees.
is clear bra/paint protection film/PPF the same as xpel film?
Of course, our clients at HHCC frequently ask about Xpel clear bra/paint protection film. Naturally, our clients want to know if Legend PPF, STEK, Llumar, Kavaca, and other brands compares to Xpel at all. Did you know, a lot of people use Xpel to mean clear bra, because Xpel is one of the most popular brands? Besides the information above about clear bra/PPF, we also discuss Xpel and if it’s the same as PPF/clear bra in this article.
