    Here are a couple of links to @Joseph Torbati (OCDetailing) hands on with the Model 3.
    Originals seem to have vanished...

    Tesla Model 3 - Aero Wheels


    Tesla Model 3 - Paint

    There was another two: the screen in-detail, and another as a walk-around (I think)-- Anyone have a link?
    I'll update them all here...

    ** edit **
    Huge photo album (thank you @alexeiw123):

    Would you be able to measure the PCD for the model 3 rim for us? This will allow us to get more details if the Model S rims will fit. Thanks in advance. Just to clarify... PCD measurement is from middle of lugnut hole to same position directly opposite (not opposite lugnut hole since it may not be directly opposite).

    So is this a customer car or his own.
    One is cool, the other not so much.

    It’s a customer’s car. But he said in his own thread that he had permission. But he said that before all the videos “vanished”.

    The other two can be found here
    edit: I'm pretty sure they are/were in there. It's a big album, can't see them now.

    Interesting in the aero wheels video that he doesn't use the center cap from the cover to place into the alloy wheel. I wonder if all the posts that said that it would fit were incorrect or just speculation.

    Another nice OCD youtube video of a white Model 3. I love this one with the chrome.

    WTF is that free cut across the bumper behind the rear wheel starting at :38 seconds? IMO No way you can just cut the film and not the paint underneath.

    I think he's just making a relief cut.

    Hopefully. I looked at a few other pics of that section and there is a ridge line. He was probably cutting in that gap. You just couldn’t see the indent of the relief in the pic.

    Same exact thought I had.....WTF is that? I didn't think you needed relief cuts on this wrap, wouldn't that become an undesirable seam?

    I have seen every company that installs this stuff do the same thing. They insist if done properly their razor does not mark the paint.

    I actually asked that question in the video comments as soon as I noticed it.

    Reply from OCD was "Protects the splash area behind the rear tire :)"
