Just picked it up. It needs to be cleaned, but no wash until I take it back for the one week evaluation to make sure everything set correctly. XPEL Stealth.

I forgot I had the lift on for the driveway, so ignore the stance..lol.

Sweet car. I literally picked up my 4S today with the same color and same wrap. I wish the fully blacked out 21” wheels were an option on the 4S. Looking at yours, I may need to break down and buy another set of wheels or get mine powder coated or painted.

Careful: "wrap" is completely different than PPF.

Wrap is thin (typically ~2 mils) and much less expensive installed than PPF.

PPF is typically >8 mils thick, which lets it absorb common road hazards before they can damage the underlying paint. Some brands of PPF also incorporate the equivalent of a ceramic coat outer layer, which lets the car stay clean-looking longer, and makes it far easier to clean when it does get dirty.

Full clear or matte PPF of a Taycan typically costs $6-9,000 installed. Templated PPF such as Xpel that can be installed by less expert installers costs at the low end, but leaves more visible edges and seams. Some less expensive brands of PPF require a separate ceramic coat, which typically costs an additional $1-2,000.

Colored PPF is much more labor intensive to install than clear or matte, partly because the installer can't see through it during the stretching process. Colored PPF is also more expensive material, so expect to pay well over $10,000 installed. But the results are incredible — you end up with a Taycan that has amazing color, depth, and gloss, thick impact/scratch and hydrophobic coat protection, and near elimination of any orange peel texture of the original paint. Here's an example on a Panamera:
And here's the same PPF on an originally volcano grey Taycan:

I can fully vouch for this product and this post - its completely on point, and the market does a terrible job explaining this. This is Stek Dyno Grey (Nardo) and the car is the same color as the OP, Volcano Grey.

This looks really nice. Would you able to share where you got it done in CA, and how much it costs. Thanks

This looks awesome. Just dropped off my gloss black Taycan for stealth PPF. Can’t wait.

That looks amazing! Perhaps a stupid question, but will it look like that no matter what the original paint color was?
