The Lucid Air is the fastest-charging and longest-range luxury electric vehicle available today. Packed into an elegant design inspired by California. It was Motor Trends Car of the year in 2022. Has an estimated range of 516 miles, and max power of 1200hp.
Satin Paint Protection Film
This option allows you to turn the color of your vehicle to a satin finish and all while offering the best available protection to the paint! We use the Xpel Ultimate Plus brand of film, which offers a self-healing top coat for swirls and small scratches, hydrophobic qualities, UV protection, as well as a 10-year warranty.
It is the best option to get a matte or satin color for your vehicle. The film offers a more durable finish than a satin top coat would from the manufacturer or a vinyl wrap. Making washing the vehicle a much simpler task with the hydrophobic qualities it contains. Another benefit of satin paint protection film is that metallic paint will still show through the film. So a metallic white now becomes a satin metallic white.

A vinyl color change wrap is the process of wrapping the exterior painted surfaces to another color. Vinyl is basically a large colored sticker. There is a multitude of different colors to choose from and in different finishes. Matte, satin, and gloss. Even “color flips”, which is a vinyl that changes color depending on the angle and the light.
One of the main benefits of vinyl is that it is removable. The main downside to vinyl wraps is that they are not made to last. With a well-maintained and garage-kept vehicle, a vinyl wrap can last years. But a poorly maintained vehicle, that is allowed to sit dirty, with water on it, and bird droppings sitting for weeks will go bad within a matter of months. Vinyl wraps are not for everyone.
Partial Color Change/Accent Panels
You can go with everything from a pinstripe to stripes, to wrapping a single panel. There are many different ways that a vinyl wrap can change the look of your vehicle. Add your own personal flair to the car. You can “two-tone” your vehicle, either by wrapping the top half of the car or by wrapping just the hood, roof, and trunk deck. You can wrap just the hood as well. There are many different ways to stripe a car. You can have a single stripe, dual stripes, stripes with accent stripes, or even side stripes. The options are really just about limitless when it comes to what can be done.
Wheel Powder Coating
Changing the color of the rims can help to really change up the look of the vehicle. You can go for a subtle change like gloss or satin black, maybe matching a chrome delete. Or do something more drastic like adding a pop of color or matching the wheels to the body color. Powder coating is a durable finish to your wheels that is similar to their original coating. Paint would easily chip and become damaged from everyday wear and tear. You want to make sure that your wheels are getting powder coat.
Brake calipers can be painted to change them to just about any color around. Or you can install a caliper cover over the top of them. Typically you will be more restricted in colors and designs with a cover.
You will want to ensure that the company knows what they are doing when it comes to this process. There are two methods of painting the brake calipers. One is to bag off the entire car, thereby protecting it from overspray, and then paint the calipers.
Or the second method is to remove and bleed the lines of brake fluid and paint them off the vehicle. And then reinstalling the calipers.
With either option, you want to ensure that it is done properly so that your car is safe and protected. Especially when it comes to your brakes. There are many shops that will work on wheels, but not the calipers due to the liability.
Much like a screen protector for your phone, you can install paint protection film on the touch screens of the vehicles to protect them from scratches and make them easier to clean fingerprints off of. A satin paint protection film installed will also help reduce glare off the screen. The Lucid Air features a 34-inch 5K display panel, so it’s a lot of screen to protect.
There is also the lower touch screen that is home to many functions, including controls for navigation, audio and phone systems, climate controls, and detailed vehicle settings and information. Both screens will see a lot of touching, and potential items rubbing against them as people get in and out of the vehicle or reach across the vehicle.
Paint Protection Film
Paint protection film, also known as PPF or clear bra, is a flexible but durable polyurethane film that is applied to the painted surfaces of the vehicle. We use the Xpel Ultimate Plus line of ppf, which has a 10-year warranty against cracking, peeling, fading, and yellowing in addition to the long warranty, the ppf also has self-healing properties to remove swirl marks from the film’s surface.
Clear bra protects your vehicle from rock chips and other impact-related damage that can occur with everyday driving. Making it the ultimate way of protecting your paint. If you’re a commuter doing a lot of driving, live in an area where a lot of construction is going on or there is a lot of debris in the roads, you care about not getting rock chips, your vehicle maintaining its look and finish matters, or you want to keep the paint in good condition for when you plan to sell it, then paint protection film is the right option.
The ceramic coating utilizes nanotechnology to provide a completely invisible layer of protection. Nanoparticles, when applied to the surface, seal all the pores in the clear coat making the surface stronger, hydrophobic, and UV resistant. All while making the surface more resistant to swirl marks, etching, and water spots.
The nano-coating forms a semi-permanent bond with the surface of your vehicle’s paint, resulting in a “sacrificial” layer over the factory paint. So if the car does need some kind of paint correction you would be working on the ceramic coating and not your vehicle’s clear coat. Ceramic coating provides protection from contaminants as well as providing a deeply shiny, and glossy finish to your vehicle by bonding to the clear. These products are called permanent because they can be removed only through polishing or lack of maintenance.

Ceramic window tint can offer more benefits than just darkening your windows. It also offers UV rejection, up to 62% depending on the shade(s) chosen.
Our standard window tint also offers heat rejection but not as effectively as ceramic window tint does.
By rejecting UV rays the tint protects your vehicle’s interior surfaces from fading or cracking due to UV damage over time. It also helps prevent the inside of the vehicle from getting extremely hot and drying out, or “baking”, interior surfaces that can cause them to crack, blister, or fade. Or cause permanent damage to interior electronic components due to high temperatures.
