    I am having my new Model S P100D wrapped. The work is being done by Exoticar in West Los Angeles.

    It's almost done and can't wait to bring it home. These photos make it a look a lot lighter than it is because the shop is very bright.


    Need to finish the front bumper & need the wheels powder-coated Satin Black and we are ready to go.


    A few more of the work in progress:

    That looks amazing!! Why is the front passenger-side wheel the silver 21-inch turbine? Looks like your car came with the dark grey rims...

    That's what I am saying about the light in that shop. It's super bright combined with a probably less than great camera. The wheels are the Dark Grey Turbines that are getting powder-coated Satin Black. It's also had all sorts of other wheels on it at various stages while the rims were getting powder-coated.

    I'll update the thread with the "actual color" photos when I can get it back home.

    Very unique.
    Great idea on the wheels.
    I'm thinking of a basic chrome wrap....you have gone well beyond that!
    Thanks for sharing.

    The wrap and the wheels were done by Exoticar in West LA.

    This wrap is one-shade lighter than I requested, and not actually 3M Dark Satin Grey, so I'm going to drive it around for a bit and then go back and get it done all over again. It was an honest communication mistake. :confused:

    I have done just a little bit of wrapping with the 3M wrap and I can say that it is a joy to work with.
