Finally got my Model 3 last week, had it wrapped in 3M Satin Dark Gray and put 20" EV Direct wheels on it. I like the EV Direct wheels as it keeps the car kind of looking stock, but with the Model S looking turbine wheel. Need the Tesla hub caps.

wow, is that a clear satin wrap over a midnight silver or silver? I was considering a matte clear wrap bu dismissed it because of the cost vs cost of the car, but your 3 is making me reconsider!

The wrap is called 3M Satin Dark Gray. A satin clear wrap over midnight silver would probably look pretty similar and provide a bit better of protection (clear PPF is thicker than color change wraps).

I had this planned, so I configured with the black color, which was $1,000 less and paid $1,300 for the wrap. Which was a net increase in cost of $300 vs going with any color.

Hey there, the wrap cost me $1,300. However, I poached some guy who does sub contracting for shops. Shops usually charge $2,500 for color change wraps in Southern California. The person I hired, did it in his home garage, so there's a risk that if there's any issues you don't have a shop or company to rectify. He was professional and did a good job though.

All, I am receiving a lot of PMs about this haha.

It might be easier for me to just give his instagram page. It is Signature_Spec

Maybe reach out to him on that.

Thank you for sharing this information. I just did the ceramic coating with Mark @ Signature_Spec . He knows his stuff and very passionate about his work. My car came out perfect. His price was also very reasonable compare to the shop around here. He came to my house and did it in my garage. He also does tint as well but my car was already tinted.
