    Hello everyone,
    I'm about to take delivery of my MX75D in the bay area this week and I'm looking for advice/recommendation on quality installers that can do clear bra, coating and dash cam (BlackVue). I've done some searching but there doesn't seem to be any price information for the installer on the forum as well, is everything hush hush?

    Talk to Joe at OCDetailing (OCDetailing - Bay Area Coating & Clear Bra Specialist). He has about 2000 Teslas under his belt (...and quite a few exotics like McLarens). He is not the cheapest. You can of course try to bid down to a price or up to a level of quality. He will discuss your options based upon how and where you drive and garage your vehicle. Do you have kids who will kick the front seatbacks? Do you live down a gravel road (Palo Alto, doubt it)? Are you leasing or buying--how long do you plan to keep the X. And, no, I don't get any spiffs or kickbacks, I just respect his work and experience.

    I second this recommendation. You can't go wrong with OC Detailing in Fremont.

    I had wheel xperts in San Jose do my xpel. Hood, headlights, bumper, and mirrors for $900. Tell them Stan from Tesla Forums sent you.

    Highly recommend Sharif in Redwood City @ SS Customs. They do the wraps and custom work for Tesla and their Veteran program car. They do everything. Not the cheapest but they are full service. I’ve trusted them with my MS P100D for full Xpel + chrome delete + custom badge work + powder coating + BlackVue install. Couldn’t be happier.

    Agreed. Joe is wrapping my car on Thursday and doing my camera install— when I was researching this— his name came up a bunch. He is also active on the forum. Great guy to work with so far— I have confidence I’ll be pleased.

    Feel free to ping me and I’ll send you after photos next week and I can provide a you copy of my work order/invoice. :)

    If you want Blackvue Dashcams installed, the best is Calibred Customs (calibredcustoms.com). Darius did my 4-channel set up in my Model X and it was suberb. I'm doing a video review. No cables are visible anywhere.

    They do "road trips" to the Bay Area (located in LA), I know he drove all the way up to Sacremento the day after my install in Cupertino.

    Can't say enough good things about them, I'm thrilled with the quality.
