    Looks great! And I assume you can still raise the height if needed?

    Unplugged does amazing stuff. I've seen some of the best looking Teslas at their shop.
    Where did you have the chrome delete done? Is it matte? Very nicely done.

    Thx. Very pleased with the outcome. The chrome delete was done at Wrap Bullys in Santa Fe Springs, CA. George is the owner....they do a bunch of Teslas, exotics, etc st a reasonable price. I went with gloss (solid) black to match the paint and did the emblems in satin black to match the wheels. $800 for the chrome delete. Cheers Nicolas

    Very nice. What was the height setting when you took the pictures?

    I live in Seattle. Do you know if the install was simple and do you mind sharing the price? Message me if you prefer not to share on the forum.
    Also, how is the ride?

    I've read uneven tire wear when driving in low/very low, what are your thoughts/experience with tire wear? What ride height do you normally drive in?
    I normally drive in low and very low every now and then. I don't have very many miles on the tires so can't speak to the tire wear just yet.

    I don't have too many miles yet to determine wear degradation at this point. I have my X set to standard...and automatically switch to low when 50mph+. I switch to very low when parked...because the lowering kit makes the X look oh sooooo gooodddd!

    You actually put the car in very low every time you park? Tesla needs to make that a feature ;)

    You just have to be careful when parking over curbs or parking blocks if it's made a feature or else......

    Just remove that front license plate
