    In the paint protection film industry, it is a highly skilled craft that cannot be taught overnight. Unfortunately, this market has seen an influx of companies in various automotive industries pick this up as a side revenue generator, yet promote that the skill and experience is there. To date, we have worked on over 500 Teslas for both Spectra PhotoSync and paint protection film installations and have seen them all. Many Tesla owners do ask us from time to time, what the difference is between Premier and other companies in the area. Our answer is simple, we have been installing paint protection film since 1997 and doing it ever since. Most "certified" installers run through a 3-4 day course and then are "certified" to install on $100,000+ vehicles. Below is a simple example of a Tesla P85D that came in and needed all the film removed and replaced because he was not happy with the seams on the hood edges, fender edges, and the two piece application on the front bumper. This example here, is actually one of the better installs we have seen that needs a redo.

    The reason we take close up shots is because most installers take photos from a distance that would not show these flaws. We do it for the purpose to show the real difference. Here the finished pics from up close to show the variance (for example, our front bumper app is done in one piece vs. precut pcs that come in 2-3 pcs for the front bumper alone).

    We have clocked in over 650 Teslas since late 2012. Below are just some pictures of the Teslas we have worked on at our facility:

    As testament to Premier, I was at TMC Connect and somebody from Xpel asked me why I don't have the film on the car. I had Premier install it to the entire car, so I chuckled and didn't want to make the guy feel bad so I did not say anything. I would not consider using any other company for tint and clear film.
     
  5. Now that is one of the greatest things I've ever heard. I know the guys at Premier very well, and myself being in the industry I can say they truly are the best around. Their film installations are above and beyond what you can find anywhere else. If I had a new Tesla I would be taking it straight to them!

    Thanks Tim! Coming from someone as meticulous as you, this is quite the compliment. We always ask potential clients to come and see the difference at Premier....so be the judge. Photos do not mean much especially with 99% of installers on the market taking photos from afar. ;)

    Certainly appreciate the feedback darth. To date, we are now over 850 Tesla Model Ss for both paint protection film (CGN), Spectra Photosync, or CeraLuxe. We are extremely familiar with the Model S. Look forward to taking care of your Model X!
