    Good morning,
    Would anyone share their favorite car wash place / tinting place / wrapping place / dent-ding fixing place in Miami-Dade / Broward? I'd appreciate any leads. Tesla store pointed me to tesla custom wraps - but I'm trying to understand what's available out there.
    Thank you

    I had really good luck with Tint World in downtown Fort Lauderdale (at 1260 West Sunrise). Had Model 3 windows tinted and had Xpel put on entire front end plus rockers under the doors. Great service and results. Mike and Elisse were who I spoke with - both very helpful. I should note that long ago I had bookmarked several places in the South Florida area for Xpel (as I was a April 1, 2016 reservation holder with the 3) but when it came time to have the work done on the car all of those shops were closed or nonresponsive. Tintworld was the only one that remained standing. Luckily, Tintworld does not act like they are the only game in town. There are shops in Miami but I did not want to make that drive.

    I wonder if that's the same company here:
    https://www.yelp.com/biz/miami-auto-spa-miami-7?sort_by=rating_asc

    Place looks legit, however, the owner/manager response is rude - I'd hate to think what would happen if I didnt like something and tried to ask them to fix it:

    "You are a filthy pig and your car reflected it. Why would you think we would clean up your excessive ness for free. That’s why there are menu boards with pricing and options but you just want everything for free. We are glad you will never come back, it’s a good thing."

    "Yes we are going to pass is what we told you. You have rims that have a dip coating that we will not remove and what would you like us to do? That is why we said text us a photo instead of wasting your time and our time. Instead you act like a B*tch and cry on Yelp. You obviously have some issues. Read less"

    A540CFFD-8F05-4186-B1A8-8E75C7FBBAB6.jpeg For car wraps I highly recommend Custom Wrap Design (CWD). They apply Xpel and regular vinyl wraps.

    Definitely on the higher end price wise. Haven’t had a chance to wrap my Tesla but they did my motorcycle.

    Looks pretty awesome! Congrats! nice looking driveway! Do you plan to do anything with Tesla? I'm on fence about wrap - I never hold cars long enough to justify it. Perhaps for a wow factor - some custom design would be great - still doing homework.

    I have used Miami Auto Spa for years (Porsche, Jaguar and Tesla). They have always done excellent work for me, and I use them for washing as well. If you want special bedside manner go elsewhere, but they really do know how to handle high end cars very well.

    For the full new car preparation, window tinting, clear bra, ceramic coating, wheel protection (Alloy Gator) and dashcam, I repeatedly have chosen First Impression, whose owner has a Model 3 and has had Tesla specialty since ~2013. They are in Sarasota and Tampa, but for me the trip has been well worth it. Pete is the owner and he is knowledgable, enthused about Tesla and gives excellent service:
