Just got back my originally gloss black Taycan now with Xpel Stealth PPF. Shout out to the team at Imperial Works in Sacramento. For some people a car gets you from A to B, but for others it’s a passion and a source of daily joy.

Looking good. Now it’s time for some clear side markers and satin black wheels 😍

Looks great! Just to confirm: it's was base black Taycan, not jet black mettalic? My detailer advised me against wrapping Stealth on base black, saying it will look bad..

Base black yes (confirmed it on my original build sheet) and I LOVE the way the stealth PPF looks on it.

This is a pic from my garage BEFORE adding the stealth PPF

My Mamba Green CT was also at Imperial Works for full exterior Xpel PPF and tint. When I picked my car up on 06/21, I did see a Black Taycan in the shop. Maybe it was yours ? Did you have to get the cameras recalibrated after they removed the sideview mirrors ? Mine was getting an error code that was partially in German and Imperial Works paid to have all the cameras and sensors recalibrated.

I asked them to NOT remove the side mirrors as I did NOT want to recalibrate. My PCM was in a BAD place last time it was messed with when the internal alarm sensor was replaced. It took 2 dealership visits and many hours to resolve. Consequently there’s a very small seam in the side mirrors which I actually couldn’t even see and the guy at imperial works had to show me where it was.

That's what I wanted and was surprised when they removed the mirror. I complained they said nothing about the side mirror removal, so I said they should pay for the re-calibration. They didn't argue and said they should have asked me first before removing the mirror.

Niello Porsche was 6 weeks out for an appointment and I actually took it to Automotive Calibration Systems in Roseville. They actually perform all the calibrations for Niello (Porsche, Audi, VW,etc) and have all the manufacturer's equipment to perform the camera and sensor calibrations. Had I taken it to Niello, they would have just brought it to ACS.

The Xpel stealth looks spectacular on your car BTW !

Good to know about the local calibration place IF (but hopefully not) I need it. Also, I appreciate the compliment. Someone complimenting my car is like complimenting my kid. Proud.
