Would love to see a pic a little further out to see the contrast between the door handle and the silver color on the entire car. Also, have you considered doing chrome delete around the windows/side mirrors as well?
I can take a picture further back this weekend after R2D2 washing session :)

Don't think I will be rapping the chrome around the windows, probably above my level of expertise and in a way I like the look. What I did not like on the chrome handles was the fingerprints every time someone opened the doors and the carbon fiber rap eliminated that.

I just got the carbon fiber mirror covers, those will go in this weekend and also will be doing the trunk upgraded lighting, currently in my garage when I open the trunk I can barely see anything, additional light is necessary.

Thanks @DinosM
I have been going back and forth on doing a chrome delete on my silver performance when it arrives in 2 weeks. It's going in for ppf and tint right after getting it, so I'm thinking of having the shop do the chrome delete at the same time. Decisions, decisions......

I don’t have silver, but IMHO that is the one color that looks best with the chrome, and the sport wheels. Am I right @Quicksilver ?

Yes sir you are!! The chrome gives it a sparkle and a classy finishing touch. I don’t think it works as well on other colors...maybe white, but definitely works on silver.

A few more pieces left including the carbon fiber mirror covers. Unfortunately, I have received them from RPM Tesla and one of them is scratched up. Several emails to them without a reply, pretty disappointing, I will write up a review of their products soon and will escalate to a dispute if I do not hear back from them in the next day or so.
