    Well done! Reminds me of the signature red for Model S and X, but it’s even better. If the depth IRL is anything like it looks in photos, you’ve got one of the prettiest yet.

    The burgundy color is siiiiick!!!! The only thing I'd change would be to possibly match the brake calipers to the burgundy, or maybe even a gold?

    Looks fantastic. I can see that paint scheme would also look great in white or silver. The black top makes the car look larger, IMO. Too bad there isn't an autoflex dealer here in Utah.

    When I took it to the Tesla service center, they said the same thing that it looks close to the Signature red but better. The depth IRL is actually better than in pictures, especially in sunlight the color just pops. However the color looks darker in person compared to the pictures.

    It does standout in real. I was thinking the same about brake calipers, they would look better in a lighter paint (like gold or yellow).

    Your autoflex pictures looks great with the matte and satin finish. Autoflex is certainly a cool invention.

    I hope so too. There is a good chance I might buy Model Y next year but will only buy a solid black and get it autoflexed. Even if they release a burgundy finish I will not go for it :), because for almost the same price (or a little extra) I can not only get the color choice I want via Autoflex but also have full paint protection (which otherwise would cost $2k - $3k). It is so easy to maintain autoflex paint (also have it on my X5) and cleaning them is a breeze, even compared to OEM paint. And the best part is if you decide to sell the car in future, just peel off the paint and your OEM paint will be maintained fresh as new.

    Yes with autoflex pearls, candies and concentrated juices you have more than 40,000 color combinations. I would be quite surprised if you cannot find a single dealer in the entire state. Did a quick search and found these guys, about an hour from you (no idea how good or bad they are) Plasti Dip Utah - Get Your Car Plasti Dipped today or do it yourself!. You can contact most plastidip dealers, but not all will be able to do a good autoflex job though.

    Don't forget you can do gloss, satin or full matte finishes, too!

    I'm so happy with my satin silver Autoflex (matte) BUT... had I seen these photos before I did my 3, I would have definitely chosen this. It's drop dead gorgeous! And yes, so close to the Signature Red which is the only red I would have been interested in, had it been available.

    Great job!

    Glad you like the finish and outcome. Yes, it does look very close to the signature Red paint, especially in sunlight.

    Could you tell me where you had this done? I'm in Orange County and I am reviewing my options for wraps, but this looks awesome and its not much more than just a front end wrap.

    Did you get this done in LA somewhere? I'm in the Los Angeles area and am interested in AutoFlex.

    Thanks. I actually preordered MPP Coilovers and had to cancel, as it was already low enough for me to get in and out, was used to driving BMW X5 :). The ride quality is really good, including cornering and hence decided to leave as is
