    Showing off the RPM Tesla decals and other products I've installed... Hope you guys like!

    *I have no affiliation with the company and paid for each piece

    Carbon fiber customized license plate frame, lighted T (I used frosted glass spray paint to smooth the LEDs)

    Carbon fiber headlight decal, head light tint film

    Carbon fiber steering wheel decal

    DSC00013.jpg

    Carbon fiber center cap decal & yellow T decal. Can also see the carbon fiber taillights decals in upper left

    De-badging and matte black chrome delete DIY (not RPM Tesla product). Car is very low! DSC00009.jpg
    Yellow calipers, carbon fiber center cap decal, yellow T decal, carbon fiber side taillights decal. You can also see how much I've lowered the car with air suspension lowering links.

    Carbon fiber turn signal decal

    Not pictured: Blue interior lighting, incredible Reus sound system

    Regarding the chrome delete...

    Window trim: matte black
    Door handles: gloss black
    Nose cone chrome: gloss black
    Rear diffuser: carbon fiber
    Under fog lights: matte black
    Under doors: matte black

    What do you guys think of these choices? I'd say it's pretty subtle but makes a big difference. Should the factory offer any of these options?

    I totally drank the Kool-Aid. Look out for me in LA! I'd love to help anybody looking to do mods like this...

    I love customizing. RPMTesla lets you do a spectacular job at a very low cost- and it stays on only as long as you want it too!

    How'd you do the chrome delete around the windows? I don't think RPM sells those pieces.

    Those were professionally done by Rob Tint in Culver City.

    If you wouldn't mind could you point me in the right direction regarding the lowering links with installation here in SoCal?

    Thanks!

    Here you go:

    TESLA MODEL S EVOLUTION LOWERING KIT / LINKS / MODULE

    I can lower it for you. Need to jack up the car and take off the wheels, pop out the old ones and replace with precisely measured new ones.

    Pet peeve, but I have never understood tinting headlights. It degrades lighting performance and is a safety issue for both you and other drivers. If you like the blacked out look you should open the lights and paint the housings, that way it doesn't interfere with light output

    Yeah, that's the part I'm least happy about and most consider removing. I'm not comfortable painting the housings myself. Was able to apply a light tint myself for a really low cost and haven't noticed any degradation in performance or safety but will keep a look out.

    stitched the images together (super wonky) to give you an idea of the whole car... My 35mm fixed lens wouldn't get it in one shot without going onto my neighbor's property. Will take more shots soon...

    Were you able to get the lowering links and install them?

    Let's go! I'm so down. There's only one thing people would say: "Whoa, there are new Sheriffs in town."

    Ever in LA?

    Rarely but I do go back to the OC a few times a year. I'll hit you up.

    By the way, was it difficult to change your interior floor lighting color?

    SUPER easy. Just pop out the lights and pop in new ones (cheap, sold on amazon).

    Can you take some pictures of what you did with the blue interior lighting?
    And describe how you did it. I am VERY interested in this.
