    We just received delivery of our Model X and was just curious if Tesla waxes the car prior to delivering. The finish looks great but want to make sure it has a good coat of wax on it.

    I would ask your DS. I think each delivery/service center is different. For example, mine uses a third party detailer for the pre delivery detail, and I had to specifically request no sealant/wax be applied because I was taking it to get wrapped ASAP.

    Mine was "waxed" according to the DS but I imagine it was nothing more than a spray way... two weeks and one rainstorm later, the shine was definitely gone and there did not appear to be any wax left... washing it by hand confirmed this.

    So don't expect a long lasting wax to be applied even if they say the waxed it.
