This Is Why You Xpel in Brooklyn

Had both bumpers Xpel'd before delivery. Only had the car 2 months and this is pretty normal in Brooklyn. Looks like the condom worked. Didn't get infected.

This is why when I get my own F80, it needs to be Xpel'd right away. 95% of all of these hits happen with the car just being parked on the streets of Brooklyn.

Sucks it happened but great forethought on getting it protected. Definitely interested in the after pics

This is completely off-topic, but can someone explain why OP has an additional parking sensor above his side-view camera in the front bumper? Most of the cars with ZEC package that I see do not have this sensor over on the side...

You park your M on the street in Brooklyn? I haven't driven a car I care about into Manhattan or the boroughs in years. I'm not into bumper cars with nice rides.

If you can afford to live in boroughs, M3 is a beater...

A few years ago I used to see this guy on Brighton who'd drive a few blocks to do grocery shopping in his Diablo.

Realistically, you're just as likely to get your car dented by SUV doors in suburban parking lots. It's life.

Not me. I park FAR away from mommy and her Honda Odyssey.

So will that wipe off with alcohol or do you have to remove the Xpel and replace?
