  2. The Service Center
    Not sure if it was a branch or just a crappy person, but I walked out to my car this morning to see this... Does anyone have any idea if this can be repaired?

    7 months ago, I had the Xpel Ultimate clear bra installed on my car. In the process of removing and reinstalling my rear bumper, they damaged the inside tabs/prongs/whatever so that it doesn't sit flush with the body. When I point this out, they agreed to "fix" it.
