    Can anyone recommend shops that have done great work wiring dash cams and applying XPEL to their Model X in the Seattle area? I just got my X last week and would like to do my "preventative" maintenance ASAP, but want to find someone reputable, reasonable, and high quality.

    I used Northwest Auto Salon in Lynnwood for Xpel and Benchmark Motors in Bellevue for the dash cam (Blackvue). Neither are inexpensive but they seem to be competitively priced and did fine work on my S.

    What did the Blackvue install run you? Pretty clean job?

    It was a Blackvue 600, which is just the front camera, and does not include the rear one. Cost was $500 for hardware and installation. They did a clean job.

    I've used Benchmark in the past for electronics on other cars (concealed Escort, add-on Satellite radio, iPhone integration) and they have always done very clean work. Check out some of their installs on their website.

    NW Auto Salon (Lynnwood) and Metropolitan Detail (Bellevue) seem to be the most highly recommended Xpel installers. Neither are inexpensive but they seem to be most highly regarded. I'm waiting for a Service appointment to touch up a door ding and to adjust some very slightly off panel gaps before I get Xpel installed. I'll be going to Metropolitan Detail. Still deciding on how much to get covered.

    Metropolitan Detail recommended Systems Unlimited for dashcam install but I may go with Benchmark as I've had them recommended a couple times.
