    Hello everyone. I have been reading the forum for a while and finally purchased my own Tesla. Thanks for all the prior advice and I can't wait to contribute.

    So.... I presume an 85kWh S based on your handle (and you're in Vegas)

    And congratulations.

    Remember that preconditioning is your friend, getting into a car at 70, when the temps outside is 110 is a great benefit from EVs...

    So far so amazing!!! I have a lot to learn. Taking it to So Cal this week for the first trip.
    Just had clear bra front clip installed, tint, and Gtechniq Pro applied. I tried to upload pics but it said file was to big... hmm I'm lost now. I'll keep trying.

    I haven't been able to figure it out. Every time it says upload image size too large.

    It worked. Here are a few pics after the Qtechniq, Xpel, and tint was applied.

    I ended up going with LLUMAR CTX 5% on the rear and 15% up front. On the front windshield I had the clear Air Blue 80. It is ceramic so it has the uv and heat blocking properties. I also had Xpel clear bra on the whole front clip. Then covered the whole car with Gtechniq Pro and Exo.
