Clear Bra for my X6 - Where?

Do you any of you guys know where I can get clear bra for the BMW x6 flawless? Or good work? I'm in Denver, Colorado. i don't want to go through BMW dealer as they are charging $495 for that and I know they also find third party to do it too.

I ordered xpel ppf from xpel.com and applied by myself.
They don't have a pattern for 2013 X6 but Pre-LCI and LCI have the same bumper and fender. So I ordered 2012 pattern and they fit perfect.
You can do it by yourself. It is not hard.

ps I highly recommend BIKINI cut for hood and fender.

It is not hard. You just need two solutions, in 16 oz spray bottles, add 4 drops of shampoo to clean water and mix isopropyl alcohol 70% with clean water(1:3) (Distilled water is better)
They are a lot of application instructions on youtube you can watch and learn.

When I had E60 550i, it was my first time to apply the ppf and made no mistake.

Just let you know, applying ppf on X6 was easier than 550i.

If you're going to get ppf, you must think about the pattern and coverage.

That's why I recommended Bikini cut. Full cover kit is great but very expensive. Trust me, Bikini cut is the best.
Straight line cut is not good.

Here is the pic. I think I only took one pic while I was working in my garage.

I bought some 3m Ventureshield for my X6 M50d (car is arriving in a couple of weeks, wahoo!) from these guys (in USA) on EBay.
