    Just had my Tesla's windows tinted at Protint Hawaii on Moowaa St in Kalihi. In short, the owner Dwight M does excellent quality work, uses excellent tint products, provided an excellent warranty on parts AND labor, and all at a reasonable price.

    He assures you that he will take care of your Tesla while it is on site being worked on. He has apparently done several Tesla's and some of the owners are TMC members. Highly recommended!

    Yup, used Dwight as well and am pleased with the results. Did it in 2013 and tint is holding up well.

    I also recommend Dwight at ProTint if you're looking for tint at a shop. If you don't mind a mobile install in your own garage, Jun's tinting also does excellent work and he comes to you, which really works out well if you're doing Xpel since it needs time to cure.

    I've used both ProTint and Jun's and would recommend both. :)

    I had my tint and vinyl wrap done by Al's Tinting in Aiea. They're really meticulous and performs IMG_4529.JPG excellent work.

    Nice customization! The white nose cone, black wheels, blacked-out chrome, and fine red trim aadd a nice touch.

    Thanks for the compliments. I told him I wanted the satin pearl white wrap and chrome black but he pretty much came up with the rest. The rims were just plasti dipped. Good for now until I save up for black 21" or 22" wheels. Any thoughts on going to bigger wheels?

    Thank you for sharing your thoughts on 19" wheels vs 21' or 22"'s. I suppose it's a matter of practicality or looks. I look at my S now and i am quite happy with the way it looks. I have 18000 miles and probably have that much more left on my tires. I would have replaced my tires already if I had 22's so I don't know if I want to go through tire changes much more often...

    And then.... I saw Nanimac's post of the white S with 22"s....back to the drawing board again. LOL


    By the way, I saw your comments as an email but do not see it here in the thread. Am I missing something?

    Plasti dipping seems like a good alternative. I've been thinking about black rims on my silver MS. Was it expensive?

    There's a couple of companies on Oahu that can powder coat wheels. This is far more permanent than Plasti dip. But Plasti dip allows you to test and see if you like it before you commit permanently. Both serve useful but different purposes.
