    7 years ago today, my life literally changed. Family followed by business aside, my commitment to preaching the gospel of weaning America off foreign oil took off at the intersection of Tesla Motors & realizing that an EV could be made sexy both by Tesla & super-customizer, Elie of Al & Ed’s Autosound, West Hollywood, CA! Hopefully not sounding too grandiose, but at the Tesla Model S unveiling we brought my Tesla Roadster which had been fully customized enough to peak the interest of Elon Musk & others in the brain trust who came out to look at it. Though Elie's ‪Lambo‬ that he had driven that night got boos from the crowd (favorite line was "That's a herpes sore on the face of the planet!"), my guess is that TSportline was born, if not only in Elie's mind!

    Well, its been a wild and fun ride and as new chapters unfolded, including ‎Tesla Roadster‬ v2.0 - "Tree Hugs Roadster Owner" (TESLAsterone), & Model S - ‪"Dr Taras' Model S gets customized!"‬ (The HUN! which morphed into the ‪Pink‬ BreastCar Tesla), there was always great anticipation ahead! And now we're on the precipice of the next chapter with Tesla Model X, I'm excited to see what the Michael Angelo of aftermarket customization, Elie Rothstein will do now? Stay tuned to the Tesla Model 3 Event on Thursday 3/31 where they will be unveiling the Tesla Model ≡, and while inside the ‪Tesla Model 3‬ will be unveiled, outside TSportline's ‪Tesla Model X‬ ‪P90D‬ transformation will be introduced!

    Thank you for that. Looks like you signed up for TMC the same day I took delivery of my Model S. I don't think this post will attract the same following that the ground breaking "The HUN!" garnered but happy to share none the less.

    Is the large "X" on the side a cutout in the wrap showing the underlying paint, or something on top of the wrap?

    The car is wrapped in 3M Satin Black. The chrome is wrapped in Matte Black. The large rear 'X' is an inlay of Matte Black. Thanx for asking :)

    Those Tesla light puddles are awesome. Does it require heavy modification to pull that off?

    Pretty sure it was an easy install but it was done as part of a package by the Tsportline guys or you can contact A-E or you can see this post when he did the same to my S: Tesla Model S LED Ghost Lights

    Can we purchase everything from tsportine? Would really like tips on where to buy some of the aftermarket stuff you added.

    It looks awesome!
