    Yesterday at the Tesla Owners Club of New Mexico monthly meetup, members got to see a new Model 3 that's been wrapped in a special iridescent, holographic wrap and then wrapped again in a clear protective wrap. The result commands your attention, for sure.

    I should add that having now uploaded the photos, the process of converting them to JPEG and then uploading to this site seems to have resulted in exaggerating the iridescence a bit :)

    In real life the car is stunning, to be sure, but a little bit more subdued that these photos make it seem.

    What's interesting is when the sun goes behind a cloud, much of the iridescent effect goes away, and the car looks more like a shiny silver Model 3. The owner told us that at night, the car really gets attention, especially at a red light or surrounded by other colored lights while driving. It also apparently appears "invisible" at night at times.

    I like it.
    But what's "Tessy" short for?
    Because "Tesla" is a famous dead dude's last name. Like "Tiffany." And "Madison."

    I almost did that wrap or similar if it's not the one 3M offers, but couldn't imagine what it'd look like on the whole car. Pretty cool and definitely stands out.

    Are many cars with this wrap package? Invisible at night sounds like tragedy in the making.

    No idea; as far as I know this is the only Model 3 in NM, maybe the U.S., with this wrap. I have not personally seen what the car looks like at night but yeah if it sort of blends in with the road, that might not be good, especially if car has to pull over to the shoulder for some malfunction.

    Gorgeous! Thought about getting that, but compromised on an iridescent blue+purple for our Model 3.
