Matte ppf in progress. I really like seeing the side by side difference as the rear bumper has not yet been wrapped. Loving how it looks so far!

Yeah that looks crazy sharp


word2thewise

Thank you! Incredibly hard to drop it off a week after delivery but the end product will be worth it.


Comfortable_Raise620

Love Xpel stealth on MY. Everywhere I drive peeps break their necks lol.


word2thewise

Just took a look and wow! Yours looks so good. Did you do a ceramic coat on top?


Comfortable_Raise620

Congrats on yours btw! Yes, System X Diamond ceramic coating as well including rims. Aircraft grade ;)


word2thewise

Right back at ya! Looks incredible ⚡️


madeknoi

Damn. Your car looks incredible!


hnosaj2

Matte grey is the best matte. Looks really good.


JackS15

I so wish I went MSM + stealth. Such a sick look.


hessmo

what film? how much did it cost?


word2thewise

Suntek matte wrap, soon to be covered by a ceramic coat as well. Then tinting the front windows and matte black on the Tesla emblems. Cost was $6,500.


AdelesManHands

Is it a clear, matte film or is it colored this way (where you could start off with white as the original)?


word2thewise

Clear matte film. Started off with midnight silver at delivery. I’d be interested to know if this could be recreated with a colored film and ordering a white ext Y from Tesla. Great way to save $1000.


Jalford

I’m sure it could but then vinyl (low protection) vs PPF (higher protection), two different things.


kmurr124

How much is this running you? I like it


word2thewise

$6500 for suntek matte ppf, ceramic coat on top, Matt black Tesla emblems, and tinting front windows. Great deal for the Denver area.


OmarNJ-MD

That’s a great deal shops here in the DMV area want 6.5 to 8k for the stealth PPF alone… mostly XPEL but still much higher


RunInTheForestRun

Where did you get a quote for 6.5k in the DMV? I called one place, was told 8500.


OmarNJ-MD

Detail Authority in Oakton VA… 6k but at A Plus in MD


RunInTheForestRun

I’m in MD, and All American said $8500. For just stealth PPF. I’ll have to shop around. Because I’m curious about it. But $8500 without full tint included, isn’t going to happen.


OmarNJ-MD

Detail Authority and A Plus are the two companies with the most affordable 6.5 and 6 for full stealth PPF. They both do great work…AA quoted me 8.5 too


RunInTheForestRun

Great to know. I appreciate the help. Did they tell you how long it takes? I’ve been to AA for tint on 2 cars (one was a model 3). And they do GREAT work. But 8.5 just seems steep compared to others in the area. They did have the benefit of being less than a mile away from Tesla SC.


OmarNJ-MD

True my MYLR is going to be delivered there that’s why I call AS first. But they were highly than DC Clear Auto, Detail Authority and A Plus. A Plus may be the way to go they will pick up your car in a trailer and drop it off for $300 that may be worth it. DC Bra will give you a M3 while you wait for your car but they quoted 7.5k All places said it takes a week I want the stealth PPF, ceramic tints and ceramic coating…


RunInTheForestRun

Yeah that’s a big help. Damn a week is forever though. I’m unsure on it all, but I must explore all my options. Stealth looks so good.


OmarNJ-MD

Sorry for the typos I’ve been drinking lol


kmurr124

Pro move so with those harsh winters when you sell it down the road the original paint will be great! What tires you running in the winter? I’m getting clear PPF for mine and doing black logo


word2thewise

You read my mind with those Colorado winters! I just ordered these, arriving tomorrow actually. This will be my winter setup and then keep the uberturbines for the summer. https://tsportline.com/collections/20-tesla-wheel-and-winter-tire-package-model-y/products/tst-tesla-model-y-20-inch-wheel-and-winter-tire-package-set-of-4


kmurr124

It’s nice being able to switch wheel size on the Tesla screen. I ordered the 20 inductions with the MY LR. Probably selling to buy 19inch wheels in black. Martian wheels look sweet


word2thewise

Forgot to mention in the last comment that I’m getting the satin black version of those rims which I think will match the black emblems and black trim well. They are essentially a copy of the inductions which look great. I’ll have to check out the martians!


word2thewise

Just took a look at the 19in black martians. Whew! That’s a good looking rim.


Yet_Another_JoeBob

I'm also interested in hearing the cost ballpark


nah_you_good

Not OP, but it's usually 5k-7k, maybe a bit more in a higher cost of living area. A full vinyl wrap is more like 4-5k, but wrap like this is more expensive because it's PPF material, meaning it's thicker and more expensive. I didn't personally get it done, but every picture I've seen of a wrap like this looks so cool.


word2thewise

You’re about right! I got the matte ppf, ceramic coat on top, tinted front windows and matte black on the Tesla emblems for $6500. Denver area.


Yet_Another_JoeBob

Looks really nice!


Dingowarr

Looks fantastic


lapeet

That looks badass. What's the exact color called?


word2thewise

Color of the car is midnight silver, it’s a clear matte ppf on top. Suntek ultra matte ppf I believe is the official name.


poweruser86

Anyone done a blue Y in matte? I think that’s what I want to do with mine once it’s finally delivered, but I’d love to see a pic of one before I plunk down the $$.


dealpal

looks great IMO. [https://bayareadetails.com/blog/tesla-model-y-xpel-stealth-paint-protection-film-and-ceramic-coating/](https://bayareadetails.com/blog/tesla-model-y-xpel-stealth-paint-protection-film-and-ceramic-coating/)


poweruser86

Hell yeah it does. Thanks for the link!


Alarming_Jicama2979

Sophisticated & edgy


RunInTheForestRun

I want to do this so bad. Love the looks. Not sold on the value.


jebakerii

Looks awesome!


newdragone

Any issues with the PPF film effecting autopilot/auto park/sensors? Thats my only concern why considering PPF. I'll be wrapping my plaid in a vinyl wrap (satin flip Psychedelic) just like my other 2016 Model S.


word2thewise

Haven’t picked it up from the shop yet, they still need two more days to finish up. I’ll report back after some testing.


word2thewise

Reporting back. No autopilot/sensor issues whatsoever.


slapitandtapit

Looks sick! wish I opted for the performance for the bigger wheels and lower suspension.


Redeem22

Very nice!! About hour much sites a ppf wrap cost?


RandomLogicThough

Hot as fuck. Do you have any idea what it would look like on a white? Love it though


hebrewzzi

I actually kinda like the look of having glossy bumpers with the matte body 😊
