    Hi Everyone,

    I wanted to share my experience with NL wraps in Santa Clara/San Jose. Jorge the owner gave me very affordable pricing - I won't post it here in case his pricing changes. His attention to detail is amazing too. He's also the first I've seen that gets the folded mirror wrap right.

    He can do pretty much any vinyl work - He smoked my headlights too and tints too.

    You can reach him at (408) 606-0906 and tell him Mike sent you.

    NL Wraps also does PPF with stage 1 Paint correction at an affordable price (next on my list)

    I just wanted to share this in case anyone is looking for quality work at a fair price. Here's the result of all their work:

    @FlatSix911 It depends on how many services you have them do. If youre doing chrome delete only, I'd say expect to pay $700. But if you do more - tint, PPF, etc, NL will work with you on the price.

    @FlatSix911 keep in mind that NL Wraps chrome delete completely hides the chrome - even when the mirrors are folded. I've called other shops and even though their pricing is ballpark, they dont cover the chrome when the mirrors are folded.

    @FlatSix911 I can't recall an exact number since I had NL Wraps do so much stuff on my M3. I would just text Jorge at (408) 606-0906 and say that Mike sent you from the forums.

    I do know that NL Wraps uses SolarGuard tint. Commercial grade stuff.

    Hey, I was wondering if doing a vinyl wrap will compromise the sonar detectors on the bumper? Anyone notice a change before and after?

    Thanks!

    You may want to ask someone who has wrapped their Model 3. I know I've seen a few wrapped cars on these forums.

    The 2nd T close up looks like Plasti-Dip to me due to the texture. First one looks like a wrap due to the extra material on the corners. Just my guess...

    I believe the T's are wrapped. At least that's how they are on my car.
