Just recently got my Y wrapped with KPMF ice blue titanium, having issues with 4 out of the 6 front bumpers. Particularly the direct front 4. Do not have issues with the two on the sides of the bumper and rear sensors. Is the wrap causing the sensors not to work? Looking for advice from those who have theirs wrapped.

Yes it is the wrap that causes the problem esp. in cold. My wrap expands around rubber in cold weather which causes air pockets and sensor not to work. When temp is warmer works fine.
My installer talked to service and they told him to cut out the sides. It worked for a little bit then stopped and now works once in a while. I may just cut it out after. I have a model Y so there's no rubber ring around it.

Also the shop have done many Tesla's and never had a problem. In fact another brand new model Y came in and liked my color so much he chose the same and didn't have this issue.
