Got my car back today and so here are the pics! Xpel stealth gives a matte look.
The front license plate removal was a pain my installer said lol. The screws are some crazy proprietary type. Tesla is installing a front plate bracket on all cars now it seems. Fortunately once he got it off there was just double sided tape and now it looks far cleaner.
I really like that look.
Looks great. What's that white stuff on the ground behind the car?
Where'd you get it done? How many days did they keep it?
Are you going to put the front plate back on that you're in WI?
LOL my friend in Cali asked the same thing.
Two thumbs up. I'd give it more, but I only have two.
CMG detailing in cedarburg WI. Took 8 days. They had to redo a few spots. They do custom cut fitment not factory template. Came out great. Only seam is the lip of the trunk and you can’t see it unless you look close. Even then it will blend in more as it cures/dries.
I am not putting the front plate back on. It totally ruins that beautiful front end. In my experience police in WI only pull over young punks in Hondas and Fords for no front plate.
Just wanted to clarify XPEL Stealth gives a satin look. Matte lacks any kind of shine.
Correct I used the wrong term.
Sweet look. I just picked up my brand spanking new 2018 Model S yesterday. How much does this service cost?
Does it swirl or mar if washed incorrectly or does it always maintain and impeccable finish. Have you run it through a brush wash to see if it swirls. I enjoy a clean car and, as a previous auto detailed, can't stomach the site of extensive swirling on black car. If I could use my local brush wash without damaging my pain, I would have this applied promptly.
BTW, I covered with Stealth even the ultrasound sensors. Working without any issues. Give it a try as well.
It's a wrap not a wax or finish. It shouldn't be harmed by gentle cleaning with soft cloth automatic washes. XPEL Ultimate will self heal. I don't believe that Stealth has the same ability but it is resilient.
I think Tesla considers that to deviate from owner instruction and sometimes fights warranty work (unfairly).
I have xpel stealth and take it through a car wash every once in a while. Stealth has the same self healing as ultimate and actually hides scratches or swirls better.

what did it cost?
I can supply the pre cut film for whoever wants to try to install themselves. It'll save a few thousand dollars.
