If you order all the listed options together they should give you good discount since the scrap will be minimized. I think 20-30% is reasonable

I love the idea of chrome delete. However, if using vinyl, I would be concerned on the longevity. If there is any cracking down the road, removal would be tricky. Plastic dip seems like a good option due to its ease for removal. One option is to use both! Use vinyl only on the parts like the folding mirrors.
I'm interested in this but I need to do more research.

A brand name vinyl should not crack and be easily removable for about 5 years

I paid $1200 for mine (deleted everything but the Tesla emblems) but I went to a very high-end shop and the work has a lifetime warranty. Not going to skimp on aftermarket work on a $50k car. There's also not a lot of places that do it here so pricing likely isn't as competitive here as it may be in other parts.

I was not talking if the price quoted by the OP is reasonable but that if you get the full package you should get good discount.

Side windows surround for $650 is crazy expensive. They are easy to do and if you tailor the material smart there will be not much material involved

$1150 with Wu Wraps - Pre Facelift, $1050 - Post facelift.

If you are up for a challenge, its about $110 in supples (3m satin tape + 3m cutting tape) and a whole days labor - DIY)
