  • Tesla now offers color paint protection film (PPF) for Model 3 and Model Y in both gloss and matte.
  • This might be a test for the upcoming Cybertruck’s wrapping options.
  • Tesla’s service includes the detailed wrapping of door jambs, typically a pricier, labor-intensive task.

So, here’s the scoop: Tesla just dropped a bombshell. They’re rolling out color paint protection film (PPF) wraps for Model 3 and Model Y, and trust me, it’s a significant move. Here’s a rundown of why this matters, especially if you’re a Tesla enthusiast or someone in the wrap business.

When it comes to vehicle wraps and personalization, Electrify Showoff is the place to be, drawing EV enthusiasts who proudly display their unique and personalized tailored electric vehicles. A standout at the San Francisco event was Kevin Kwok’s 2018 Tesla Model 3. Adorned with a vibrant Teck Wrap in paprika orange, Kevin’s selection was not just a protective measure but a vibrant statement of self-expression.



Now, getting back to Tesla’s announcement, let’s unpack this a bit… Why now? I think this might be a testing ground for the upcoming Cybertruck. Elon’s been dropping hints about wrapping the monochromatic (stainless steel) beast, so perhaps this is a sneak peek of what’s to come.

Price tag? We’re looking at a ballpark figure of around $7,500 to $8,000. Not pocket change, but let’s break down the value. There’s a range of about seven exciting colors on the menu, including the highly sought-after clear gloss PPF. It’s so sleek it looks virtually invisible. On the flip side, if you’re into the matte or stealth look like me, Tesla’s got you covered there too. But here’s the catch: for now, it’s exclusive to only two Tesla Service Centers, both in California – West Covina, CA and Carlsbad, CA. Oh, and if you’re leasing? You might have to strip that wrap off once your term ends.

Now, for those not in the know, here’s a quick 101: wraps come in two main types – Color Vinyl and Color PPF. Vinyl wraps, found in most shops, can cost between $3,500 to $5,000. They’re mainly for jazzing up your car’s hue. They’ve got tons of color choices but tend to be a tad fragile.

Enter Color PPF. It’s been gaining traction over the past half-decade and offers a sturdier, self-healing protective layer. The finish? Absolutely dreamy. You can almost lose yourself in the depth of the black. And the gloss? Oh, it’s on another level.

Now here’s where things get super intriguing: Tesla’s hinting at wrapping door jambs. If you’re wondering what the big deal is, let me break it down. Door jambs are a serious task. Like, we’re talking about removing doors and getting all up in those nooks and crannies. Most shops wouldn’t touch door jambs with a ten-foot pole because of the sheer effort involved. So, it’ll be interesting to see how Tesla handles this one.



As for the types of PPF on offer? Tesla’s serving up three main colors: the muted matte (or stealth), the high-shine gloss, and the show-stealing color PPF in a range of seven hues. If you’re into that super sleek, almost-wet look, the gloss has got your back. Matte, on the other hand, tones things down, giving your car a subdued, sophisticated vibe. But it’s the color PPF that’s likely going to steal the show, especially with Tesla hinting at some exclusive shades.

Wrapping (pun intended) things up, Tesla’s move is bound to shake things up. It’s not just a win for Model 3 and Model Y owners, but also a teaser for what’s in store when the Cybertruck finally hits the streets. One thing’s for sure: the future of electric vehicle customization is looking pretty exciting!
