    • Tint and protective wrap (XPEL or the like) installers around Austin. Not looking to drive to Houston...
    • Installer for Blackvue front and rear and a lighted T rear.

    Suggestions?

    XPEL has a factory installation facility in Austin on N. Lamar. Look on the XPEL web site.

    I saw that, but I'm open to their competitors (having read the forums). :)

    FYI: I talked to the XPEL Austin company (www.austinclearbra.com/) and they offer us a 10% discount. Be sure to mention TMC.

    I did Llumar FormulaOne Stratos tint through Sunbusters. Put Air90 on the windshield. Happy with the results, both the looks and heat rejection.

    Still struggling over the paint protection or not.

    Absolutely, still 4-5 weeks to delivery, sigh. At least I'm not doing it in hours yet.

    Do it. I wrapped my car in Xpel and it has saved my car from some rock chips and etc. Totally worth the peace of mind. And it makes it easier to clean the car AND keeps the car looking shiny for the most part which is nice.

    If you dont wrap the whole car, at the very least do the full frontal + front bumper. Maybe rear bumper too.

    Nate at bespoke in cedar park... he'll put on xpel if you prefer, but don't be fooled... he is probably the best in Texas. Did a great job on my P100D... very very good.

    Here is my number I have for him from my cell phone. +1 (512) 518-1722

    Text might be good to do or to email and leave a message... I wonder if he's out of town or something for thanksgiving. Dunno. But good luck!

    I did the entire car, which I'm really glad I did because nate does a whole treatment on the car that got rid of a lot of the little defects when the car was painted at the factory. He sent me a photo of a crazy tiny red thread that was embedded in the paint on the hood that he was able to work out with a clay bar ! He's just super detailed and obsessive and I was blown away...
