My brother in law, who has a grey model S, wanted to wrap his car.  I think I convinced him not to do it.  I said that it would look like crap in a few years.  I also said that the only cars I ever see wrapped are Lambos, Audi R8s, and Teslas and the Lambos and R8s which are wrapped are usually owned by young punk kids who have very rich Dads. 

Here's a wrap for you then; its my cousin's
car.

BTW, lots of wraps go pretty low profile, and might not have been noticed.
And then, I spent a week as a lemon, jumping in and out of a gin and tonic.

Lots of Teslas get wrapped.  Terrible paint quality and lack of color choices makes them prime candidates for wraps.  I was next to a model 3 with a matte metallic blue the other day.  It was obnoxious, but I liked it.

Also because they charge sometimes $1500 or even $2000 for a particular paint color option.  A wrap might be twice that cost.

Yeah, my paint option was $1000 more which isn't bad, but now it's a free option so it's going to be more common.. i'm a bit annoyed by that.
