Actually I have found Suntek PPFC to be better than Xpel Ultimate. I had the Xpel on my 2012 550i and Suntek on my 2013 M5, and the Suntek is significantly better optically. Both are self-healing.

In Atlanta and Miami where I live, all the high end clear bra shops plus the local Ferrari dealers switched from Xpel Ultimate to Suntek PPF-C within the last year.

I'd highly recommend you go with Suntek.

In addition, when you talk to the clearbra guy - 2 things to manage closely:
1) There are several patterns for the front bumper in the Xpel template catalog (Xpel makes the cutting software). Be careful which one you choose. One has more visible seams on the front bumper than the other.
2) There are 2 ways to computer cut the film. regular size, and oversized for wrapped edges. They should do the latter.
