I love my Xpel, so don't take this wrong. Within the first week of having had it applied to my new car, a rock managed to put a hole in the Xpel. You could see marks on either side of the hole where an apparently large rock hit my hood. After a thorough waxing, you don't see any rocck marks, but the hole remained. The Xpel did it's job - there was no paint damage - and I am going to have the hood piece replaced.
I'm sure this doesn't happen often, though. I agree that it is a sturdy material. It just so happens that the road I travel every day is under construction (like 98% of the roads in the PA/NJ area)and I'm sure what happened was a result of excessive road debris from the construction.
Bottom line is that I really think it is a great product - but it is possible (although not probable) that you can get a hole in it.
