FINALLY: Midnight silver MX with full Xpel Stealth Wrap!!!

Picked her up today. I can not believe how much better the car looks. Turnaround time was 3 days. I was grinning ear to ear the whole way back from the shop. I can not recommend enough TRANSHINE DETAILING in Whittier. Bill and Jesus were AMAZING: so accommodating and patient. Best customer service I've had from anyone in a long time. Full wrap runs from 5K to 6K depending on what extras you get. Here are the contact details: [email protected] or call (562) 693-5619 They are located at 15130 E. Whittier Boulevard, Whittier, CA 90603

Excellent, thanks for posting! I saw the X this color in Erik and David's video from Denver and thought it looked a lot better than it does on the Tesla website! Might change my mind from Blue... now I can't decide between white and black interior! How do you like the white look?

Love the white, but go with black. I am getting 3rd seat replaced because of seat tearing. But I have old perforated ultra white seats.

I have heard the old ones are 'weaker', but that makes sense with the perf. I'm still trying to get a sense of: Are newer leather seats of better construction or not (thicker leather, less wrinking/sagging. Jury is still out based on the last deliveries we've seen here. Perhaps the EOQ ones will help give some more info!

Dark grey of the midnight silver is definitely a good look!
 
Looks great, and you were that one guy who actually posted pictures! As obvious as that would be. Jokes aside I noticed you painted you had your calipers painted, how much did you pay for that?

I was quoted 600, seemed too much to me.

Yeah, maybe it's a few vodkas in me to today, but I am not getting the joke (that guy?). In any case, powdercoat and calipers was $1200.

Wow! That looks gorgeous

I honestly can't believe how great it looks. I live in LA and there are more teslas here than civics. Now I can actually see people noticing the car.

One quick question @XPEL- what's the maintenance? Can I do regular car washes or hand washes only? My installer said nothing special needed, just spray polish every once in a while.

Probably a stupid question - but, you had a factory silver metallic color and then applied xpel stealth? I thought that was to protect factory matte finishes. Did your installer use pre-cut pieces or coat and then cut? Is that xpel stealth different from xpel clear bra. Also, did you apply any Gtechniq Crystal Serum? The look is awesome - I want to replicate that in the A.
 
Hi All. I have a midnight wrap and some comments to share.

The gorgeous work was done by Tim at Adonis Detail in San Diego. As many here have posted, he's fantastic. 6 stars.

The side-by-sides offer a comparison for those considering a wrap. I think Midnight Silver looks great in stealth.

I was on the fence about wrapping. No longer. I drive and park with more confidence and no longer fear my kids going into the garage unsupervised.

I like my glossy seatbacks but had them wrapped in clear. If you have glossy and kids with feet, it's a must.

RPM Tesla provided the carbon fiber sticker for the one rear chrome piece I did. I installed it (very easy).

I didn't delete anything else b/c I'm too old to pull it off and it's not my style anyway. This is a family car, which is why I have 7 seats and selected the 100D. I don't need to go fast, but 300 miles is great (actually, 305!). The wrap is for protection, not attention, but it does grab some and I certainly don't mind.

I have a black CA plate (no pic) and I think it's worth the $50 for a black or grey car. I'm probably done messing with the exterior for now. No tint needed. Might buy a cubby though.

I went with an unusual badge setup to get some customization and simplify the rear. Curious what people think about my choice here. I still could swap the red D for silver. The blank rears are nice, but I'm not a 60 pretending to be a P100D (or a P100D trying to avoid races?). The other pic shows why some customization is nice. It's not unusual to find myself surrounded by Tesla family members here in San Diego.
