  • We just completed a significant update, but we still have some fixes and adjustments to make. Please see this thread for more details and to find out how to revert to the old design. Cheers!

Socal Southbay white Y. tint, ppf stealth, smoke headlight/taillight, paint caliper.

Reading thru all the threads, pricing seems to vary by $500 for tint. I wanted heat shielding, all windows, including front & roof, prices range $1300-1900

PPF stealth $6200-7500?? (this seems really expensive) - I know it's not the same but considering vinyl wrap 3M pearl satin flip for $2800-3000

ceramic coat is $400-800 depending if stealth ppf or wrap.

paint calipers - $600-1k

smoke headlight taillights - only found 1 shop so far $200 for front, $200 for rear.

Is there a shop that would do all of this and maybe give a discount?

I'm in manhattan beach, wanted to find somewhere local, but I guess if it's this much would drive 45 min or so.

You can check out my YouTube channel, just posted a video on tint and tinting light (tinting lights video comes out tomorrow morning, cost about $40 and did it in an hour with never have doing it before), also painted my calipers for $30 and they look amazing, about to post a video on that a well. I got my tint done by Tint LA - paid $725 for ceramic tint including the windshield but that was a Model 3 which I’ve heard is more expensive since the rear 1 piece glass window is huge.

I am also in debate on either PPF or Vinyl wrap, prices are crazy out here, found a few shops as low as $4500 though but in OC or the valley.

Keep in mind vinyl does not protect like PPF. Not even close to the same. I paid $5300 for XPEL stealth but that was in Atlanta. I live in Saint Louis and prices were higher here so we made a road trip out of it. The $5300 included PPF on front headlights, tail lights and fog lights. We did have the option to do smoke but chose to stay clear. AP3 Atlanta is who we used. Might give them a call and see if they know anyone on the west coast.

Yeah I've gotten vinyl wrap quotes as low as $3000. Cool if you want to change color, otherwise PPF for sure. The shop in OC for $4500 is solid and they do Xpel. I found another place out in the valley that quoted $3750 for KPMF? Never head of that PPF though so unsure.

Oh side note for the OP - forgot to link my channel - YouTube.com/matnetik

AP3 said with a color change they recommend vinyl with PPF over it. That is about a $8k-$10k job. We went with XPEL Stealth so we didn’t look like every other White Y on the road. I think it is the best way to look different without the cost of vinyl. Vinyl chips super easy and looks like crap in a couple years.
