    Hi
    Any recommendations for dash cam install in the Bay Area? Specially south bay (SJ, Milpitas).

    ...and while you are there Joe can do the wrap/film/coating thing as well (...1 stop shopping).

    How much should I expect to pay? Since this is the same car, it should be the same cost for anyone.

    The cost is up to the installer and a free market economy. There are degrees of skill and difficulty. What make and model dashcam are you installing? Single or dual camera? Are you installing in an X or S? Where is your installer getting 12V power?

    I ordered a Blackvue 650S with two Cams, it will go to my X as it is shown on my signature. I read that most people are getting their power from OBDII, I don't think I will be moving the dashcam to other vehicles, so a permanent power source would be ok.

    I know it is a free market, but having this forum is like having truecar.com. The owners have a way understanding if a price is within acceptable range or not. :)

    Exactly. I had Joe do everything to my car: full kit of Xpel ultimate, coating of Cquartz finest, paint correction, 3M crystalline/Llumar CTX tint for all windows, and Cquartz leather/interior protection.

    He does offer to sell you the Blackvue 650GW-2CH for what he buys it for. I just bought mine online on Amazon, because I have Prime and it's faster. Since I had many things done to my car, he let me pay just what his installer charges him. That means he doesn't charge any profit for the installation charge. I can give you the exact price over a PM.

    Joe might not be the least expensive choice in the SF Bay Area, but I will pay for experience and expertise. There are lots of ways someone can screw up your $120k+ X.....

    Here are some photos of the Model X with the Blackvue.

    We run the wire through the OEM wire conduit so there are no visible cords showing. This is an option for those uktra particular clients of ours.

    Same here. I an avid enthusiast as picky as they come. I have seen the work of others in the area and they just dont come close to what Premier can deliver. Highly recommended and they worked on all of my Teslas (3 total). Have my P100D incoming 2 weeks, so it will go directly to them for the Blackvue, radar, photosynch tint, and the clear armor.
