Recently got my Model Y wrapped and noticed that when I parked my car back in the Garage the front parking sensors that tells you how far something is, are not working anybody else have this issue? (Attached is the photo of to color change I Did)

The color is...unique to say the least. If you’re happy that’s all that matters. As far as the parking sensors etc. just go back to the detailer shop and explain to him. They can cut around the sensors so you won’t have any issues. My detailer did that for me when I was getting PPF installed. It should not be an issue. It’s a very simple fix.

So what you're trying to say is that this is the color you'd see inside the diaper of a newborn? I actually love how unique this is. Would I choose it? No. Do I respect the effort? Absolutely. :D

OP, good luck with the sensor issue!

Is the update definitely the issue? Just had my car wrapped and having the same problem.

Plenty of threads on this topic already. My problem started after the PPF cured. As soon as it was cut away from the sensors the problem went away. You need to cut on the outside of the white rings surrounding the sensors.

Problem is the vinyl that was installed. On a warm day it works and also works I use heat gun on the sensor wrap and push it in a bit. Once cold it stops working again.

I have XPEL Stealth (Matte) on my Pearl White MY and front sensors no longer work. I don't want to cut them out so I just deal with it.
