Does annual maintenance come with Quick Detail?

    Hey guys,
    When we first got our MX last year we were under the impression that quick detail is part of the annual maintenance. Did they detail your car on your annual service? Also anything to ask/look out for on the annual?

    Thanks

    Wash n vacuum is always included I believe. Since my X is wrapped, I have to remember to tell them no wash.

    Why wouldn't you get a wash on the wrap?

    That's what my installer recommended. Most of the service centers use a third party detailer who do power washes. And the wrap may peel from power wash.

    Hmm, thats weird...my installer for XPEL actually said that a huge benefit of having the wrap was that it hides the swirl marks you'd normally get from going through a car wash!

    I'll call him up again to confirm, but was taking my old X (also wrapped) through the gas station washes every couple days (we have this thing called a "season pass" that gives you 1 car wash a day in the winter - I'd alternate between cars). Never noticed anything on the wrap

    I assume the normal 'gas' station car wash is a lot lower pressure than some pressure wash jockey! I'd be afraid for the paint, never mind the wrap!

    XPel actually gives you a No Wash sign to hang on the mirror.
