Every time I touch my car the paint is smooth as glass. It is SO easy to wash and it looks insane after a cleaning. I wash my car myself and take great pride in keeping her shine.
Three years in and it was time for an overdue Modesta maintenance. They recommend you to do it annually to keep it perfect. But it’s been so great (and I’ve been so lazy) that I skipped the year 1 and year 2 maintenance. In that time I had a wiper malfunction that sent the wiper blade over the A pillar and it damaged the coating leaving black marks from the wiper rubber that I could not rub or buff out. Wiper fixed under warranty by Tesla but the damage was done. Also had a small acorn dent on the hood. Very small but enough to alter the light and I saw it every time I washed the car.
So I just picked her up. My hat is off to Dave at TLC Auto Detailing in Dulles Virginia. He is a magician. The Modesta saved the A Pillar and Dave was able to buff off the Modesta and reapply it. Problem was erased! Dave also had a guy to remove the acorn dent. Amazing! We reapplied a coating on all black trim, did the Modesta maintenance, and BAM my 3 year old car looks like the week after I took delivery - adding a week because that was the day I picked up the car from TLC after Modesta applied.
Anyway, pic is attached. I’ll take better pics at a better location and better lighting. I’m just excited to have her back to perfect condition. Already did the AP 3 MCU 2 upgrade. Next up is new tires next week and it is basically a new car.
Anyway if you are considering a ceramic coating it’s really good. If you are in the Baltimore DC Northern Virginia area, Dave at TLC is the guy you want. I’m 90 min away in Baltimore it’s well worth the trip.
Stay safe all.
