    I'm looking for recommendations on places around Scottsdale that do window tinting and paint protection.

    I moved my MS down here a year ago from Washington has broken me. Kids complain about the sun in the back.. I mean if you can't see your video game, the world is over, right? And the construction on 101 has taken enough chips out of my hood that a tear comes to my eye when I look at it. :)

    Anyway, time to invest.

    I and several others have used Pit Stop Auto Detailing. I got tint, Opticoat, and a clear bra. I've been quite happy with them, mostly because my kids haven't complained once about the heat.

    Nothing down here in Tucson? Looking to do a clear bra on the front. Am having some ding/repainting done at Vanderpools. They did a wonderful job on my Mercedes a couple of years ago. Apparently they've worked on several Teslas in the area.

    Shane's Tint and Clear Bra in Peoria was recommended by the Tesla Service Center when I wanted a clear bar - did a very credible job:
    8581 W Kelton Ln, Ste 211,
    Peoria, AZ 85382
    (623) 933-1547

    I used Tint Wizard in Scottsdale for window film and was very happy.

    cactus did tint and wrap on a lot of early AZ Modes S deliveries. I don't think Photosync was avail when I got my car tinted, but I'm very happy with their work...

    If I could do it again, I'd try Pit Stop or go to Anaheim to the guy who did our Opticoat application. We ended up with two vertical scratches near the back wheel on the driver side. We saw it when looking over the car at time of pickup from Cactus. When we mentioned it, the owner said it was there when we brought it in, but forgot to call us to state what he found. Also, they failed to see it when they inspected the car at delivery, so I'm suspicious. And we only had the car for one two days before bringing it to them. Cactus thought it was done at the factory or by Tesla because of the depth of the scratches. These weren't rock hits. This is an area where they were applying the clear bra. Then there's the clear bra application. Because we began a roadtrip right away, we ended up in Anaheim and went to a place there to get OptiCoat. That guy said that if they had done the clear bra application, they would have stretched it enough to go over the edge and under so we wouldn't have had lines of dirt to deal with. We did bring the car back once to Cactus because the bra was actually peeling back near the tire wells on both sides. They stretched it to get it around and looks a lot better, but we still have lines in other areas. So be careful. I'd video every inch of the car to make sure everything looks good. This way if anything happens, you can compare and have proof of what you left any company.
    If you're ever in Anaheim, we loved the Opticoat work by Richard Lin's team. He even let us borrow a company car for the day and overnight.
