    I just got my car back from XPEL Austin today. They did an awesome job on it. This is the first red Tesla I've seen with XPEL Stealth, and I think it looks great with the satin finish.

    Looks good! You're definitely right about there not being many. I thought really hard about doing my MCR in Xpel Stealth and only found one picture of the X. I didn't like it and ended up just changing the color with a vinyl wrap. It was 1/3 the cost of the quotes I got for the Xpel and the Xpel was 6 to 8 weeks back ordered.

    Absolutely gorgeous. Have you thought about powder coating the wheels with matching colors? Did that on my X and love it.

    Interesting choice.

    It looks like there's a bubble in the wrap on the right rear arch directly above the wheel?

    I don't see it. You might be seeing a weird reflection in one of the pictures.

    It's just reflecting an object on the garage ceiling.

    This stealth wrap is awesome; well done!

    Did you needed to cut out the parking sensors or do they work covered?

    The ultrasonic sensors are not covered. I believe they used pre-cut templates for the front and read bumpers that already have small holes cut out for the sensors.

    I think I actually like the contrast between the satin red and the silver wheels/chrome trim. Making the wheels red would be a little too over the top for my taste.

    Looks awesome. I am planning on the stealth for my red MS as soon as it arrives. (Two more weeks I'm told) I plan on doing a chrome deletion as well. May I ask the cost for the full wrap?

    The full wrap was about $4800 after a 25% discount they were giving out for all Teslas last month. I believe the normal price would have been about $6500. I also had it ceramic coated, which cost another few hundred.

    That seems about right. I have quote from a shop here in MN for $5500.

    How much was ceramic coating? All of the ceramic pro places I've called are quoting me $1200 for a 5 year and $2200 for lifetime.
