    Hey all,

    I just picked up my Model 3 on Christmas Eve and immediately went to get a Chrome Delete and Tint.

    I did the Chrome Delete with Jorge out of NL Wraps in San Jose, and he was fantastic. Paid $750 for Chrome Delete external, interior dash, and console.

    Then I did my tint at King Tint, which is right next to the Tesla delivery center.

    Paid $800 for top-tier Solar Gard, 30% everywhere and 75% front windshield. I didn't want to go too dark because California.

    lots of money, but the car surely does look better for it!

    I have concerns about the longer term life of the vinyl 'tape' stuff. seems it can scratch or ends not adhering well over time.

    really a shame tesla does not offer an anodized version. chrome, today, is something MOST of us want no part of. tesla is still too old-school on this, for some reason. laziness, maybe?

    That is also a project on my list.
    Though, I've been thinking i could plastidip the chrome trims if the wrap doesn't work out.

    That's 30%? Damn it looks light....maybe just the angle?

    You say "top tier"...do you happen to know specifically which Solar Gard model / series it was?

    Looks good, real good. But I cant believe the price these installers are charging nowadays! paid $120 for 4 windows in my explorer ~6 years ago,and its held up perfect. goin DIY if I cant find it under $200. Maybe the roof is the majority of the cost... I can see that being a PITA.
