Ever since I first ordered my S and resigned to the fact that I couldn't buy or bribe my way into getting a Signature Red colored car, I decided to get my black delivered car wrapped. Finally, last week I had her wrapped. Went to a local wrap shop and, based on the color samples provided by Avery, I had the film ordered. A $650 roll of film later, this past week, they started to wrap it. As I observed. The job was done by GZ designs in Roselle, IL. The husband and wife team - I cannot speak highly enough about them. Not sure I can say the same about Avery? The tiny sample I was shown of their burgundy and cherry red metallic looked great. Visited the Oak Brook store and compared them to the Sig Red and "new" red. Burgundy looked very close to Sig and Cherry looked very close to the "new" red. I chose Cherry Red Metallic. They wrapped the hood under flourescent light and when done I photographed it ... my brain and eyes were giving it a good LOOK. But I was not liking what I saw. The color looked "mauvey" or pinkish. Purple? They continued with the right front fender and the physical job was perfect. The film? Horrible! I had them stop and moved the care into sunlight to see if that made a difference ... have since shown the result to a dozen of my friends and at the Tesla Illinois Owners club. At lunch today. I was getting comments that I had wrecked my car and it was primer paint. It's basically dull. Lacks the same shine that the black has. Yet if you put the tiny samples up to the hood, they look the same! Now ... Avery will "let" me buy a roll of Burgundy to see if it's better for a non refundable $650. They'll apparently not send a free sample of say, 2' x3'? No. I am not willing to pay $650 per color try out. So then I thought ... could it be waxed to bring out a shine? Could it be that vinyl simply doesn't "shine" like paint? The car's hood looks hideous. But it can be easily removed! Then, today I saw a couple of cars in the parking lot that had had Paint armor applied. You know, half the hood only. And paint armor IS wrapping. I analysed it and saw clearly that the difference between the shine on the armor and the original finish were the same. So, it cannot be a characteristic of vinyl wrapping? What, then, does one do? Bite the bullet ($650) for a new color? And hope it's the right color and it "shines"? Does wrap need waxing? Would 3m be better? It's very hard to show this problem in a photo but I attach what I can to show the aberration. Any advice most welcome!
