      and did you do the 22pl coating yourself? Or had it done professionally? Thanks in advance!

        i did the 22ple myself, as I have a DA polisher to do paint corrections first. telsa paint is very soft, and it scratches super easy. the entire car needs wrap or permanent coating every other year in order to keep it swirl free.

      Hi, I stumbled across your post explaining your experience with Xpel and 22pl coating. My car is going in for Xpel next month and I was hoping to get your input on it. I was just planning to get the Xpel Ultimate + and hope the self healing will prevent swirl marks. Did you find it hard to keep it swirl free without a coating?

        the xpel i highly recommend, it has saved my car from numerous marks. in fact just a month ago I got side swiped by a teenager whose driver mirror smacked against my passenger door mirror and the xpel wrap on mine tore but left no marks in the paint. i peeled off the xpel on the mirror and the paint looks brand new out of the factory.

        i would recommend even putting xpel clear wrap on the headlights as I didn't on mine and mine are dinged up pretty bad as well as my front windshield although I dont think you can put that on the windshield...
