    Anyone do a chrome delete using a carbon fiber wrap? If so can you post some pictures? I'm looking to get it done but debating between the Carbon fiber wrap or a Matte Black finish.

    Thanks

    they would look very similar from afar.

    my 2 cents, too much cf accents seems excessive.

    From far enough away it doesn't look all that different. Up close, the carbon fiber gives a nice depth to the car but stands out as being modded. I prefer the gloss black as it's much more subtle; but it ends up being more blended/flat as a result.

    On a black car, the carbon fiber wrapped pieces look great. Not so much on a red car tho.

    Don't waste your money. Tesla will come out with upgrades and updates in the next 12 months and you will want a new one and will have wasted $4K. You will never get that money back.

    Bitter much? Chrome delete on my X cost me ~$300-$400. Mirrors, side markers, front nose inlay, rear tailgate trim, window surround.
