    Hi all,

    Can anyone recommend a company in Brisbane that has done a Model S full body wrap?

    Cheers

    Exclusive Wraps at Coopers Plains were recommended to me when I first got my Model S. I got them to do stone protection clear film across the front, bonnet mirrors etc. The were very good cost $1500. I know they have done at least one full body wrap on a MS and were doing a Maserati. They seem to take great care. I'm not affiliated with them, but I'd recommend them.

    ProVinyl seems to have an operation in Brisbane. There are alternative suppliers on the web.
    ProVinyl Artarmon (Sydney) has a good website to get you started on the subject.
    I will approach ProVinyl Artarmon and others re wrapping my new car which is due in 3 weeks time.

    I had a full wrap in Melbourne on my Model S, expect to pay around $4k, I'd you don't it won't be a good job.

    Has anyone's wrap interfered with their sensors?

    Cool. What type of wrap did you use? Vinyl? Foil? Do you have a pic?

    Are we really sure wrapping is needed these days? I know some time ago remote roads were just a narrow central bitumen strip (just wide enough for 1 vehicle) with wide red dirt shoulders and road trains threw up heaps of rocks. These days you can go right round Australia and the road condition is excellent (full width lanes with good surface and white lines both sides) and only about 100km of the old style outback road remaining (all on the Cairns - Normanton stretch).

    On the 16,000km circuit, I only got 2 microscopic stone chips on the front spoiler which you only see if you are specifically looking for stone chips (and I'm not getting them fixed until something else needs doing).

    I did also get a (presumably) big rock completely smash the perspex on the front number plate, but I don't think wrap would have saved the day if it hit elsewhere!

    Some people wrap their cars not to provide protection but to get a different colour, finish (eg Matt) or add company logos etc.

    That's the reason I'm wrapping mine. With Tesla changing colors every 6 months I'm going to guarantee the color of mine now. I have already purchased my wrap.

    Going that far with only 2 microscopic chips is amazingly fortunate. I had a brand new loan car which picked up several visible chips after only about 1,000 km. That prompted me to get mine delivered to the film installer on the back of a flatbed. Not inexpensive but certainly less expensive than repairing the bonnet with a respray. The other benefit is no swirl damage from less than expert car washing. Of course many would say the expense mostly benefits the next owner of car which is true to a certain extent I guess.

    WOW...excellent thanks. This is great information.


    I assume that it does not interfere with any sensors or anything.

    @Garlan Garner ... No sensor issues for me. I used one of the most reputable body wrappers in Australia. They are often wrapping high end cars.

    It would pay to do your research in this area.

    You're in Brisbane right? I could ask the chaps I used for Brisbane recommendations if you like?
