Setting driving limits along with Valet mode?

What's the standard/general practice for setting limits with your Model 3 when getting work done? Examples could be...getting windows tinted, tires switched out, car wrapped, etc. Does the Valet mode have limits with in it that work in most of these cases or is there a way to use Valet mode in conjunction with limiting the speed range? If so, what's the recommended settings?

Valet mode disables opening the glove box and the frunk

Max speed limited to 70 mph

One of the confusing things with Valet mode is setting up the PIN if you already use ‘PIN to Drive’

You can reduce max speed to 50 mph using the ‘Speed Limit Mode’, that requires a separate PIN from Valet mode, I assume you can enable both at the same time?

From page 50 of the owners manual:

Valet Mode

When Model 3 is in Valet mode, the following restrictions apply:
• Speed is limited to 70 mph (113 km/h).
• Maximum acceleration and power are limited.
• Front trunk and glovebox are locked.
• Home and Work locations are not available in the navigation system.
• Voice commands are disabled.
• Autopilot convenience features are disabled.
• The Allow Mobile Access setting is disabled.
• HomeLink (if applicable in your market region) is not accessible.
• Driver Profiles are not accessible.
• The touchscreen does not display the list of keys that can access Model 3 (see Managing Keys on page 12).
• Wi-Fi and Bluetooth are disabled. When Model 3 is in Valet mode, you cannot pair new Bluetooth devices or view or delete existing paired devices.

Thanks for a helpful reply. Already reviewing owners manual on this. Anything else that you think would be useful to brief the installers about?
