FAVORITE MODIFICATION

"My favorite modification is easily the custom audio setup created by Matt Schaeffer of Musaic Design. The custom amp rack, subwoofer enclosure, and A-pillars truly make the car stand-out from other Teslas. It's not an off-the-shelf type of mod that anyone can just get. The design compliments the look and feel of the car in a futuristic design. When people see the car at shows and meets, they are wow'd at the fact that it's a bagged Tesla, then when they come around to the back, they get a look at the audio and it being the final exclamation point on the project.
