    artsci's Model S modifications

    Now that I've finalized my order and will today receive the MVPA, the mods I've planned finally will soon have a car to put them on. Here's my list:

    Lloyd's Luxe mats all around
    Parking Dynamics front and rear electromagnetic parking sensors
    Passport 8500ci Plus Radar detector
    Blinder HP-904 Quad Laser Defense System
    3M™ Ceramic Series window tint
    Soflauthor's CCI
    Wolo Air Mite 3 triple tone air horn
    Rial Lugano 19" wheels with Michelin Pilot Sport A/S Plus tires
    LED strip trunk lighting

    Installation of the Passport, Blinder, Wolo Air horn, and Parking Dynamics hardware will require removal of the front and rear bumpers, which is routine work for the shop that will do the work.

    What are others planning?

    Here in Canada (Ontario, at least) the Radar Detector and Blinder are very illegal.

    I would add WeatherTech mats, once available, and possibly Mobileye Lane Departure/Collision Detection.

    Not sure mats count as mods, but I plan to get some rubber mats with wells. I also want to get carbon fiber or black-wrapped mirrors.

    I am ditching the stock 19" wheels and using the $3500 I saved not getting the 21" wheels to get a nice set of aftermarket wheels. They will be lighter, stronger, and look better than the stockers plus I will still have the 19" for winter duties.

    I'm planning to wrap the chrome strip under the doors in black vinyl. That still jars my eyes every time I look at the car from the side.

    Ditto on the chrome strip, although I might do a CF-look vinyl. Will have to see a sample.

    My big mod... a removable front license plate frame for a no holes look when I want to do the car show thing along with its easy mounting system to satisfy the parking Nazis in certain airports and cities when traveling.
