Has anyone painted factory front lip, side skirts and rear corners to body colour?

    Please post pictures if you do, I'm debating whether to go this route or aftermarket bodykit.

    Really wish Tesla would come out with a factory option bodykit.

    I had my Sig photoshopped to see what it would look like, hope it helps.
    In the end I didn't do it as I decided it would detract from the originality of a Sig

    Man that was a good looking car! Wish I could have got my D in that color.

    Yeah, same here...really like the blue colour of our P85D, but would have much preferred to be able to get the Sig Red...

    @LVSP85D painting the trims is a game changer for the look of the car. Here's a blue, white and black S all of which have painted lowers and our kit on it.

    Here's mine. Curious what each of you paid? Mine was $2200 in 2014. Body shop now wants $3700

    I bet the painted rocker covers from a refreshed car would fit a classic just fine.

    Sorry to necro this thread, but does anyone know if the rockers from a facelift will fit a classic?

    I’ve done the opposite. Had them all lined with real carbon fiber.

    They do. I have a set of smooth ones I ordered from the service center waiting to go to paint shop to get color matched.

    Awesome! Thanks for the info! That's great news!

    Any idea how much it will cost to get a set painted?

    I have to dig up my invoice for it to be exact, but was over 700 for driver and passenger side rockers and fairings if my memory serves me right.
