Quite frankly any installer who recommends 3M over Xpel Ultimate doesn't know his stuff. I wouldn't go with an installer who doesn't know the product space.
Regarding the yellowing, there are some products which will yellow any film. I emailed Xpel when I did my 550i, and this is what they told me:
Good to know. I don't put any crazy chemicals on my car so I am not worried about it. I suppose I will go with the Xpel ultimate. I am leaning towards not having the hood done at all.
Anyone else doing just the front portion of the car and not the hood?
