    Getting my Model 3 delivered on Friday and want to get PPF/clearbra installed. Maybe ceramic coating as well, but PPF for sure (mainly want to protect against chipping, scratches etc). Any recommendations, especially in north Dallas area?

    This was some info I compiled earlier this year on PPF and tint stuff. I still need to do tint, but not sure if I will do anything else. I ended up getting the FSD update when it dropped $2k and haven't had extra money for anything else.

    I am not certain this info is still all correct, but was done in November.
