    Anyone recommend any companies? Most seem reluctant to touch the rear window due to size and access.

    obviously looking for full window, to prevent the dreaded “line”

    I'm interested in this too. Seen kits to DIY but would rather get a pro to do it!

    Hi, so I got my tesla tinted at a place called SSFilms in Wandsworth. They did a great job tinting my car and also dechroming it. Ask for Lee when you call the place he can give you a good price.

    Wandsworth, London? Thanks, but a little far from North East England.

    I’m planning on getting a kit from here soon. The dash was easy enough so think it’ll be similar.

    Having no DIY skills whatsoever I was intending to get it done by someone who does!

    That's the one I've got waiting at home - be prepared for approximately£30 import and handling charges on top

    What's the name of that place where most the car dealers are on the outskirts of Newcastle? (I lived in Alnwick donkeys ago) there'll be window tinters there as up here in Edinburgh the good setups are at Newbridge where the (car) dealers get their tints done

    Probably just closer than Wandsworth, spotless detailing in Perth advertise Tesla work.

    Would be interested in names, as I live in Broxburn and will be looking for quotes for de-chroming and possibly tinting when I get my car.

    You could walk there! My Toyota's were both done here and were perfect.

    There's a *cough* money laundering *cough* car wash setup on Corstophine Road that do the ceramic coating that I was going to do some research on. Or a lad, sole trader, doing it from his own home double garage in Bathgate that looks canny good (website has a Lambo being tarted up)

    Problem is finding someone that will do the rear window due it’s size and access on the 3
