    Has anyone got their Model 3 wrapped with xpel in New Jersey? Preferably near Livingston. Or are there any good installers that do it in your garage?

    Got my VIN on April 7th, I am scheduled for delivery on the 24th of April at the Springfield Township Service Center. I'm going to see if I can live with regular Nema 5-15 Mobile Charger in my garage.

    I used Signature Detailing in Hillsborough, NJ. His work is very good and he's very easy to work with. It might be a bit far from you, but its worth the trip.

    I'll attach some pics. He's done a full wrap on all three of our Teslas. They all cost ~$5000.
    His email is Greg@signaturedetailing.com

    I shopped around for prices before choosing him and most other places were significantly more expensive with the same good 5-star reviews

    Looks great. Thank you. Are you planning to live dangerously and go front plateless for the Model 3s? Also did you do any type of window tinting?

    I took the front plate off my Model S a few months ago so now all three Teslas have no front plate. So far we haven’t been given any trouble (fingers crossed). And no I haven’t tinted any of the windows although I think about doing it this summer.

    Just happen to see this thread browsing thorough... I also plan on using Greg at Signature Detail.

    https://signaturedetailing.com/

    I've used his ex-business partner Lee Berbs (also in Hillsborough, NJ and a shop in Florida) in the past for window tint on a few cars and he's great too! If you browse their work you see they are HIGHLY trusted and the go to guys in the Tri-state for this type of work.

    Plan on doing PPF on the front bumper of my soon-to-be Model 3 along with a ceramic coating and window tints. :D

    Check out my thread about the STO-N-SHO removable plate option, even if you keep it off more often than not, It could save you a ticket if you show the cop "oh it's right here"... just forgot to put it back on. I like it especially since it sits lower than all the other options available.

    FYI here's the link to the PPF templates available for the Model 3 - Can be used with any PPF brand really....

    http://www.xpel.com/paint-protectio...nger_Cars_and_Light_Trucks/2018/Tesla/Model_3

    Xpel, 3M or SunTek as far as my research goes are all high quality and your main focus should be on the skill of the installer and the paint prep performed not so much the material of choice. Same goes for ceramic coatings whether it be Cquartz or Opti Coat Pro.

    Full front end wraps for the Model 3 are in the ballpark of $1400-$1600 to include front bumper, front fenders, headlights, mirrors and full hood.

    Ceramic Coatings are about $900-$1200 depending on product.

    I'm more inclined to do the HIGHEST wear/prone parts which are the front bumper, full hood and rocker panels, maybe strip for the trunk/luggage area with PPF with a cost effective ceramic on top.

    Don't make your decisions on a warranty, base it on your installer history, their reputation and quality of work you have seen in person. ;)

    I was lucky to see a Red 3 today @svusa11 with a full front end SunTek wrap and Opti Coat Pro coating and was more than impressed!
