The 3M vinyl is very forgiving, and with a little time and patience, you can achieve an 'OEM' finish - anyone sitting in your Model 3/Y won't know that it didn't arrive that way from the factory.
Not sure which finish to get, check out our FAQs for some info based on our experience.

The best thing you can do is watch the video. Before you peel off the backing sheet, get a feel for each of the pieces, in terms of positioning. Work slowly and methodically, the main thing to avoid is moving too fast with the squeegee and causing a crease in the wrap. We've added a few more hints below the video. There's a couple of installation techniques, our most recent video (method 2) seems to be a little easier for most people:
Erik of @TeslaInventory also did a great install/review video, so take a look if you'd like another perspective:
Hints for each of the pieces:
As you'll discover, this is the most annoying panel as it'll keep flipping back when you apply pressure. We've revised our recommendation for how to apply this piece.
This panel is fairly easy, aside from the fact you're working with the screen obscuring your view, so you'll need get your head behind the screen to get a full view.
Q. I screwed up one of the pieces. What can I do?
A. The vinyl is really forgiving, and if there's a crease or stretch, applying some warm air (from a hair drying, or even leaving your car in the sun) can often restore its original shape and allow you a do-over. But, if all hope is lost, you can take advantage of our 'no tears' guarantee, and we'll send your first replacement piece completely free. If you need more than one piece, then there's a flat charge of $10 for each additional piece (but no, we can't send you 3 different replacement pieces to make a cheap full set ;-))
Q. Which is easier to install?
A. The heavier textured finishes (carbon fiber, matrix black) are easier, as they're slightly thicker, and more tolerant of the odd speck of dust that might get caught under the film. The Brushed finishes are the next, since they still have a texture and are slightly heavier. The smooth finished do take a bit longer to install, and the surface must be completely clean.
Q. How are these made?
A. Each piece is cut in-house using commercial vinyl cutters, following a custom design created in a vector graphics package. We only use 3M 1080/2080 vinyl due to it's long-life and ease of application.
Q. I'd like another color/finish
Q. Does it completely cover all the piano black plastic?
A. If fitted perfectly, yes. In reality, a completely perfect application can be challenging, but all the lines and curves are smoothly cut, and even if there's a little bit of the piano black showing through, the sharp edges will ensure it's not noticeable.
Q. Can this be removed?
A. Yes, easily. The longer the vinyl is there, the stronger the bond becomes, but it can always be removed without causing any damage to the original piano black finish. Just lift an edge, and start to carefully pull it away at a sharp angle.
Q. I'm not sure I can do this :-/
A. If you're hesitant, check your local vinyl and window tint shops. This is no more 15 minutes work for an experienced pro, so if you're already there to get your windows tinted, or a clear-bra, the cost should be minimal. Do note though, these shops are not used to installing pre-cut vinyl, so check with them before buying.
Q. What's your favorite?
A. Matrix Black. It's a thicker vinyl, so easier to work with, but also the look, we feel, matches the high-tech aesthetic of the Model 3 & Y.
In terms of living with the vinyl, the Matrix black still gets our vote. It's tough, doesn't show small marks or scratches, and fits the aesthetic of your Tesla. Next up are the other thicker carbon fiber vinyls for the same reason, and the brushed finishes. Matte Black has always been our top-selling option, but it's less practical, as oily fingerprints and scratches tend to be more visible. A good compromise are the satin finishes (black or white) which do a good job at resisting stains, but can also be cleaned up easily.
Q. Do you sell clear film (PPF)?
A. No. The clear film (clear bra) needs to be floated on using a mild soap solution. The application isn't very easy for inside the car, so for that reason we don't offer the option. However, we do offer various black options.
