    I heard that looking at the car with polarized sunglasses looks smudgy. Anyone hear have Xpel stealth on a midnight silver metallic 3? Is it possible to take photos of what smudges look like through a polarized lens?

    Can't help you OP, but would be interested in what people think of xpel stealth on their MSM. I'm debating the glossy vs matte/satin look.

    There is member here who has matte on X with pics ...matte look is fine initially but than the look gets outdated ..the MSM is a real nice color and IMO looks best glossed up

    Because I live in sunny Colorado, and can’t live without polarized sunglasses, and I want my Tesla model 3 eye candy.

    <3 - thanks for the encouragement.

    A lot of it I am sure will come down to hopefully an epic install job as well.

    If X2 is Nestle White Chocolate, cookies and cream bars - that DMU curve turns to a straight line. :D

    Execution is going to be risky. Look doesn’t work if you choose wrong matte/satin ppf and accents for chrome delete and wheel powdercoating.

    Do you have an opinion on who did this look best? OCDetailing is too far north but that video is impressive for certain.

    Any reputable shop can pull it off. The chrome pieces still look fine in some applications IMO.

    XPEL Stealth is more difficult to work with vs Llumar matte simply because it’s thicker and offers more protection. But any detailed worth their salt will have no problems.

    I’m in Chicago so I have no clue about anyone else in CA.
