    getting a PPF or ceramic coat

    We have seen this happen quite often with both the Model 3 and Ys. When we find issues, we first notify our clients and depending on the depth of the problem, we would not coat or add ppf to that panel. There are 2 reasons for this: 1. they may need to replace a panel or repaint it 2. they...

    Tinting Rear Window -- Half or Full?

    If done right, doing half of the glass is only noticeable from the interior. But for premium heat rejection and aesthetics, it's better to do the entire glass one piece. In response to the OP, yes, the first photo shows a glass that is tinted on the bottom half only. We installed Spectra...

    New Car Protection Costs

    Hey Chris. I recommend contacting Hughs Detailing (Hugh's Detailing) in Florida as they are an Authorized Dealer for Spectra Photosync. Most important is to look at a company's work in person and go from there.

    Hazy Front Windshield Tint

    If you are in Extreme's neck of the wood, I'd recommend taking it to them for a look. It is difficult to determine from photos alone.

    'Sunroof' Tint

    To answer your question, it really comes down to experience of the tint shop. It's the same reason why many shops won't or can't tint the front windshield of a Model 3, or do a 1 piece full rear glass on the M3. Give Extreme Autowerks a ring. www.extremeautowerks.net 600 Lunar Ave, Suite B...

    Before you spend your hard-earned money on PPF.

    Do keep in mind that not all custom installers are equal. Pushing a traditional precut installer to do a custom install will result in horrible results. Best is to visit the shop to see their work in person and get up close to the vehicle(s) to look at edges and from various lighting angles...
