    I would like to share with you images of Tony Hawk's Model S that we just completed for him. Here is what was done:

    * 21" Tsportline TS117 wheels in satin black. These wheels weigh 20% less than the factory 21" wheels and are 1-piece forged as opposed to the factory cast wheel. The factory lug bolts, center caps, tires and TPS sensors all transfer perfectly.

    * All the exterior chrome was wrapped with 3M satin black material

    * Front & rear parking sensors

    * Audiophile system upgrade with 12 speakers and 1,200 watts of power

    * Ticket avoidance system by Escort that notifies you in advance of radar, diffuses laser guns

    The front side has been modified. I suppose that this happened because a radar has been placed in the front side for the ticket avoidance system. I don't like this modification. Hope that when Tesla will install the ACC on the Model S the front side won't be modified. I also don't like the parking sensors because they are too visible. Also in this case hope that Tesla has done better.

    If you look closely at the last-but-one picture, I think it shows it as wrapped.

    Some of the handles, look clearly to be chrome, while a couple others do looked "wrapped." Maybe some photos taken before finished?

    Other than that... this car looks sick! :)

    A look I should consider for mine.

    The ZR4 shifters look too low to be effective. They appear to be more than 18" from the headlights which makes them less effective, but seem to cover the fog lights appropriately. I wonder why they went with the 9500ci instead of the Beltronics STiR plus radar detector with either Blinder, Laser Interceptor or Anti Laser shifters. These three are much better rated against the laser guns that LEO's use.
