My car is MW and not subject to routine extended exposure to direct sun. If I had a darker color and lots of sun, and planned to keep the car for an extended period, I'd be very wary of all of these films. Additional empirical evidence would really help.
The PPF is designed to be able to be removed without harming the paint. I imagine in 10 years when the Xpel starts to show signs of yellowing, you would peel it off and have a showroom finish paint job underneath.
