I have the 3M Clearbra installed on my MINI, 650i, and M3. 3M is thicker with an actual layer of clear coat applied so you can wax it to maintain a shine like the rest of your paint. Xpel, I am told is a thinner film (perhaps minus the clear coat) to aid the application process - as it can be manipulated easier.

That being said, I personally would recommend the 3M Clearbra.
