    I have been lurking on this site for almost 2 years as I waited for my opportunity to purchase my Model S. I took delivery of a CPO P85+ just over a month ago and have never been happier with a purchase. I recently had all of the chrome wrapped in satin black and love the way it turned out. (That's just one of the ideas I came across on this site) I just wanted to drop a quick thanks to all who share on here for motivating me to go through with this purchase and becoming so happy every day on my way to work!

    Welcome aboard....

    How many miles were on the ODO when you picked up your CPO?

    You sure your location isn't Australia?

    Looks the right way up to me, though I am in Australia!

    Also I am looking at it on a phone. Have seen instances before where the photos appear the right way up when viewed on a phone, but upside down when viewed on a computer....

    Nice looking car TheDJ either way!

    Yeah. Pro tip - if a picture is displaying upside down on the forum on your desktop or Android device, just right-click or press-and-hold and select "display image in new tab." It'll display right-side-up. Even in Australia.

    Love the car, btw. The gray + blacked out chrome looks very sleek. Very classy.

    Thanks. I was torn between the grey and the blue. I saw both with this treatment on here and made a game time decision. I'm really happy with the way it turned out.

    Where did you get your vinyl done at? I'm taking mine in next week to have to dechrome in satin black...also do a couple things in carbon fiber and maybe some white accents since I've got the Pearl White. Taking her to SDWrap.

    Most of the upside-down landscape photos I've seen are caused by holding the phone to operate the shutter button with the left hand. As a lefty, I had to train myself to hold the phone the "right" way, so that uploaded pictures are oriented correctly.

    I went to SD WRAP as well. The guys are awesome there and they did a nice job on my car.
