    I was looking for a good deal for painted calipers for a long time in the Bay Area. This shop does model 3s all the time.

    MUM Sports in Fremont.

    Took about a day. Happy with the results. Just wanted to share a place that doesn't overcharge in the area if you're looking to get work done.

    That's a really good price. Are there other color options?

    Yeah, it was hard seeing them in some photos so I brightened the photos.

    Tragic. Trying to find a store that’ll do some good work but not charge a fortune, in the bay area

    Very interested in doing something similar in SoCal, maybe do it on a roadtrip up there? LoL, how long did the service take?

    MUM does wraps but they use precut and u can kind of see the edges. I stopped by to take a look at their work. Not saying that is bad just letting you know that it is visible. Some folks are picky and some don't mind. Up to the individual.

    How much did it cost to powder coat your wheels? Where was it done?

    Totally agree. MUM is good but you can pay double or even triple for a perfect job somewhere else.
