    Have any Vancouver owners had their Model S wrapped or windows tinted? If so, who did you use?

    Let me know how it ends up. I did the factory coating and wish I'd have gone for the whole car wrap.

    So far, the person I'm dealing with is very nice and helpful. They are also recommended by my Tesla delivery specialist and have lots of experience dealing with Tesla's. Here is their Facebook page where you can take a look at some pictures. You also get 10% off any ppf (Xpel) if you do the Opti-coat.

    Ken did partial Xpel and full Opticoat for me when I got my car in March. He did a great job and I recently had him Opticoat my new TSportline wheels. He even buffed and touched up my rear bumper free of charge after someone bumped it. I'm sure you'll be happy with him.

    Was looking to get this done on mine as well. But now am definitely swayed to 3M per the following marking test of Xpel versus 3M and and 1 other film. Check this out before you make a decision:

    One of the issues that I heard from several people about 3M was that the film would start to take on a yellowish color, which is visible on lighter colored cars. Worth looking into if you are leaning towards 3M.

    Just took delivery of my MS today. Saw Ken at the service center doing some car washes. Met him back at his shop in Maple Ridge and now he is currently wrapping my vehicle. He's going to be in late tonight so that he can have both the Xpel and Opti-coat done for me by tomorrow. Just awesome!
