    Trusted Model S after market installer in SF Bay Area

    Please post here if you have added to your Model S thinks like, paint armor on the whole car, tinted windows, MobileEye hardware or built in Radar Detectors.

    Who installed them?
    What work was done?
    Itemized price list if multiple items?
    Lessons learned?
    Regrets / Recommendations?

    THANKS!

    Kurtis Harville at AMS in the Bay Area just successfully equipped my Model S with an Escort 9500ci in under 4 hours, totally professionally done. I've been going to them for all my high end work for years. (408) 248-1111

    Hate to regurgitate this ... but having a 3rd party installer install an alarm system ... does it void the warranty ... per "George's memo"?

    I'm looking at having my S wrapped but I don't see it as being as "invasive" as wiring something into the car.

    The Model S apparently is prewired for simple installations like a radar detector or MobilEye device. So I have heard.

    These guys: Auto Image Window Tinting - Belmont, CA did the tinting on my Roadster and will do our Model S when it arrives. They are my go-to for tint. My last 2 cars had factory armor so haven't used them for that but based on my (and tons of Yelpers) experiences wouldn't hesitate for any service they offer.

    I just got my model S done at AutoProFilms in Belmont. The gave me a great price and did amazing work.
    Full hood, bumper, fenders, lights, mirrors, and door edges.

    You can't even tell the film is on the car. Sorry for the bad pictures, it was very hard to get good pictures in the sun with the shiny new sig red!

    He stands behind his work so you can always go back to him for any issues. I left my car in the morning and it was done by the afternoon but left it overnight. The next day he did a thorough check for any air bubbles. I was the first model S he did and came out great. I'm sure his next installs will be even better now that he's done one.
