    Here are pics of my Performance Model 3 after Colorado Detail modified my car to make it look like a StormTrooper. Steve and his team did a great job covering all the exterior chrome and glossy center console with satin black vinyl, applying PPF to the front bumper, side mirrors and entire hood, tinting the windows with Rayno S9 20% ceramic window tint and detailing and applying a layer of GTechniq Crystal Serum Ultra ceramic coating. I also had my factory 20" wheels powedercoated satin black (50% gloss) to finish the look. I just need that carbon fiber spoiler from Tesla to complete my car! Oh and I pre-ordered lowering springs!

    Check out CO Detail here if you are in the Denver area, they are the premier Tesla shop.

    Looks amazing! - I visited Steve @CO Detail yesterday and scheduled my work. Now, if I just had a vehicle... Thanks for the tip. The work there is amazing!

    Man, that car looks good in white. It was a close second for me. Real close, and I've never even considered white for any other car before.
    You made it even better!

    thanks it was either white Stormtrooper or red “Franz style”, but red is too loud for me

    Little confused. You have 20s but no spoilers. I though the package came with the spoiler.

    lol, yeah i’m a little confused too. Tesla decided to deliver Performace models without the spoiler or dual motor badge and promised to install them at a later unknown date. latest rumor is maybe October, but they never hit their estimates. :(

    detailer felt it was easier to apply on entire car and remove on the lip, so he will take care of the install.

    Looks great, how much did that all cost? Did you go with the PPF package 1 or 2? I'm going to be scheduling there very soon as my edit button is finally gone!

    it costed several thousand, but worth it in my opinion. i did not go with a PPF pkg, rather i chose (a la carte) the front bumper, hood and side mirrors.

    good luck!!

    If you apply the paint protection film - do the ultrasonic proximity sensors work?
    Was there some special trick they did to get it to work?
    What PPF did you use

    Looks FANTASTIC. LOVE all the white/black contrast. Only thing that could be an improvement is black chrome instead. Great look. [rhetorical] Why doesn't Tesla offer black or black chrome?[/rhetorical]
