That’s what others have used and I will be using.

the blue is beautiful especially in the sunlight. I'd carefully inspect the paint before committing to paint correction. In my limited experience the body shops want to charge $1k for the service, which should be able to be done self-service with a clay bar at worst or not at all at best. Anything more extreme than clay bar correction should be a Tesla punch list fix.
My detailer just did a blue car with STEK DynoPrism - SO SICK. It has crazy metallics in the top coat and makes dark colors color shot.

Great feedback. I am building my delivery checklist now so I am super prepared when I pick up the vehicle.

These look great, can you provide the link to where you purchased these?

I purchased from Amazon, here is the current product page. Looks like they are out of the black version, only showing white version now:

It was advertised for Model 3/Y, but the plastic shell on the back of the S looked very similar in shape, so I ordered it to test it out, and it's pretty much an exact fit. You do have to really push the edges of the pad into the gap between the plastic shell and the leather seat, so not sure if it will cause any long-term damage (such as leaving a gap there when you take the pad off in the future). It's not perfect, as you can see some wrinkles/creases in the photo I posted (mostly because it comes rolled-up/folded in a box), but it does the job.

I'm definitely getting these once they become available again in black. Maybe I will lay them out in the sun for a bit before I stretch them on.

Here’s my MS Plaid — all detailed with Ceramic Pro 5-year, full front Xpel PPF on hood, front bumper, mirrors, & front quarter panels, tinted Xpel PPF on headlights, fog lights, & rear tail lights, Xpel XR Black ceramic window tint, and a few little extras you see — blacked out (matte black) Tesla emblems and glossy black painted PLAID emblem (+ added the glossy black S emblem to the left of the PLAID emblem), aluminum dead pedal, and the little Tesla E on the passenger side dash. Of course, we can’t forget the forged 21” Signature SV104 wheels (oem sizes and offsets).
I think it came out EXACTLY how I wanted it and I’m super happy. 🔥🔥😎. Now, it’s drive time! 😎. Thank you to all those who have helped and been courteous, super cool and helpful for the past 9 months! 🙏🏻😎

As more people have been getting their new Model S LR & Plaids, there has often been questions about tint, PPF, and ceramic in the Delivery Update threads asking for information and photos. So figured I'd try to start a dedicated thread for owners to post photos and information about their tint, PPF, and ceramic for the benefit of other members.

So to start things off, here is my Plaid with full Xpel Ultimate Ultra PPF on entire car, with Xpel Prime XR Plus tint (55% windshield, 30% fronts, 20% rears), and Ceramic Pro PPF/Vinyl coating (please feel free to ask if you want any specific details or photos):

I'm also happy to share quotes that I got for these various services in the Orange County area for anyone that is interested.

Congrats! Glad to finally see you get your white/white/CF unicorn build! It looks great. It also looks like they fixed the rear misaligned panels gaps on the door trim???

Just added 30% tint (FormulaOne Pinnacle ceramic tint at 30% on sides and rear glass). Wrap is STEK Dynomatt. Relieved to be finally done doing any more work on the car incl. warranty issues. Might put on some yellow or red caliper covers someday.
