XPEL Product Dealer Surpasses 11,400 Product Downloads

SAN ANTONIO--(CCNMatthews - Mar 10, 2005) -

XPEL Technologies Corp. (CNQ:XPEL.U)

-- Industry-Best Product Designs

-- Designated as 3M Canada's Training Facility of Choice

XPEL Technologies Corp. (CNQ:XPEL.U) announced today that Shadow Tinting
Ltd. (www.shadowtinting.com) of Calgary, Canada, has exceeded 11,400
product cuts utilizing XPEL's proprietary Design Access Program ("DAP").
XPEL's DAP software utility allows Dealers to produce vehicle protection
products in real-time, at their own shops or locations, utilizing both
the Internet and a common piece of cutting equipment known as a plotter.

Nuno Ferreira, owner of Shadow Tinting Ltd., stated, "Make no mistake
about it, the XPEL designs are a significant component to my overall
success. I don't have to spend time trying to create my own patterns or
products, as XPEL has done that for me. Having XPEL there to do the
heavy lifting in terms of design work has made me extremely efficient.
Having perfect, computer-generated kits every time, allows me to focus
on selling, installing and servicing my accounts. After all, I make my
money on the installation and service side of this business, and not on
the design side. Hands down, XPEL products are the best in the industry,
and their designs are a great asset for my company."

W. Rege Brunner, XPEL's Chairman and CEO, commented, "Nuno Ferreira of
Shadow Tinting is a great example of the opportunity that awaits all of
our product dealers who diligently exercise best installation practices
coupled with a superior customer service component. Mr. Ferreira's
product installations and customer service activities are often reported
to us as being 'top-flight,' and his product sales prove that out."

In addition to being a leading XPEL Dealer, Shadow Tinting Ltd. provides
product installation training to other interested dealers and
installers, and was recently designated as 3M Canada's Training
'Facility of Choice.'

XPEL Technologies Corp. (www.xpel.com), publicly traded on the Canadian
Trading and Quotation System Exchange, is the worldwide leader in the
electronic delivery of top automotive aftermarket products, utilizing
the Internet as an integral component for its design, manufacturing,
distribution and customer relationship strategies. The Company's DAP
software utility offers Dealers the industry's most efficient and
productive tool set for better serving customers with "best of breed"
solutions in real-time. XPEL has clear advantages over the competition
through its proprietary corporate framework consisting of an expansive
library of installation-friendly window tint, paint and headlight
protection products, coupled with a unique web-based remote
manufacturing and distribution software, superior installation training
curriculum and facilities, coupled with established and growing sales
distribution channels.

The CNQ has not reviewed and does not accept responsibility for the
adequacy and accuracy of this information.
