    Are those nicks in the hood and nose? Thought it was the camera in the first pic, but they look to be the same in the bottom one.

    I believe this is a wrap, not a paint job. It's appeared on the forum previously.

    No nicks, that is just debris falling from a nearby tree …yes, the matte color is a radical head turner (especially on all the chrome) but the S can pull it off IMO (i-phone pics do not do it justice). ….

    He just had this done…the car was black 2 months ago….not sure about wrap vs repaint?

    Uh, not my cup of tea. It looks like it's painted with primer, awaiting the real paint job.

    On the rear of the car, the gap between the two pieces of the Tesla "T" logo is way too wide. And the top piece looks like it's missing from the front.

    All it needs is a star on the side, something like this:

    Dr Tara's car has a matte black wrap on the chrome. This looks like it's been re-chromed in black chrome.


    Does the paint (or wrap) actually have a green tint? Or is this a camera artifact?

    It may not be everyone's cup of tea, but personally, I think it's hot. I've always dug that flat / matte look.

    I agree... each to their own!!! I changed the wheels on mine and I'm sure people are saying that about my upgrade choices.

    Wow, that does look stealth! If Seal Team 6 had an attack vehicle, this just might be it. The de-chrome treatment, wheels, and matte black make this look like one mean Model S...

    @joefee - do you have a full-view photo from the side you could share with us?
