    I got my calipers painted red today at a shop here in Socal. I told them I wanted to have it look like the factory red calipers. When I came to pickup the car I was surprised to see the parking caliper was not painted. Then the shop told me that is how it is on the factory cars, I never knew!

    Anyways, I love how it turned out!

    I REALLY need to stop seeing black S's with the 21inch Turbines and regret getting my ordered S with the measly 19inch Slipstreams.

    They completely change the entire look of this beautiful car to make it even more beautiful.

    Damn!!

    They are not turbines. They are aftermarket Axis MS wheels. The twist is more aggressive:)

    Rhino custom detailing in Huntington beach. $400. Those guys do a fantastic job and take good care of your car. I learned about them from a fellow TMC guy. Turns out they do quite a bit of this for Tesla owners.

    I had all six of mine wrapped, fraction of the cost and a very short time. Also had the door pulls color matched to the car. All look good after a year

    Can you post pics of the brake wraps? Especially the part where the hydraulic line enters the calipers. I don't see a way to wrap around that without cutting the wrap and leaving a seam on the surface.
