    Just picked up my car today from Q Car Care in Burlington. I ended up getting a full front xpel wrap and opticoat pro. This is the most i've spent on this type of work, previously I'd only done half wraps. So I was worried that it might not be worth it. I'll cut to the chase and say wow it was worth it! Here are a good picture.

    Looks very nice. Which front surfaces did you get wrapped?
    Did you go as far back as the doors and rear quarter panel behind the rear wheels?

    Call Joe in Walnut Creek at 925-457-4703. He's done hundreds of Tesla's and he's a perfectionist..

    I did Xpel ultimate full front(nose, bumper, full hood, front fenders, and side mirrors). Opticoat everywhere else. Still swirl free under sunlight, twin led swirl light, and fluorescent light.

    I did a full front, which includes the front bumper, hood and fenders. So no it doesn't include the doors. The entire car, including the xpel got opticoat pro. Personally i've never seen a car that had a wrap on it look this shiny. Normally they seem to take away from the shine. I'm sure the opticoat helps in that respect but the xpel is very clear.

    I forgot one other minor thing. The mirrors have xpel as well. Now that I've seen it I would have liked to do the entire car, however that is beyond my price range.

    It about 1 day to do. I dropped it off in the morning and picked it up the next afternoon. They gave me a rental car. No I had the car for about 2 weeks before I got the time to take it in.
