    @mknox what kind of paint protection and ceramic coating did you put on your X? Did you also cover the windshield? I've got this same color combo and I'm torn on whether I should go with a matte wrap or keep the shine.

    I went with a highly regarded and highly recommended local installer. I don't know much about these things, but trusted his judgement and recommendation based on my driving patterns. I had paint protection film applied to the full hood, front end, backs of mirrors etc. and Feynlab ceramic coating applied to the rest, including the wheels. I did not do anything to the windshield. I am not 100% certain, but believe even clear windshield coatings are not legal in Ontario, Canada.

    Looks great - is that stock or do you have wrap on body or wheels? Angle makes it look almost matte.

    Way late to the party but here's my Model 3 with sonic carbon turbine clones for anyone considering this combo. When I ordered it back in May there weren't many pictures to go off of.

    This is before the PPF and ceramic coating, plus blacking out the "handles" with carbon fiber

    Really like your look here and leaving the T in chrome. Is that gloss black chrome delete or satin? What did you do on the rear of the car? I'm considering chrome delete with some machined wheels, so I want to leave a few hints of chrome. Looking for ideas on how to do rear badges.

    Sweet!! I'm definitely in love with keeping back T emblem after seeing yours. I didn't think k I'd like gloss black and I do! Was your car already debadged? Can I asked what you paid for chrome delete?
