Replaced with Xpel and has been perfect. No issues. Can't go wrong with either as long as it sticks. Can't tell the difference between the two on a black metallic M5 as far as clarity feel or performance.

One tip either way is to have your car polished professionally (or if you are really really good do it yourself) and then lay down the film. Because whatever the condition of you paint it will be locked in. BMW clear coat is "orange peel" and not smooth/flat. Polishing makes a big diff on black. Not so much on other colors.
Agree completely. I had a detailer spend 10 hours prepping the paint before the clearbra.
