    There's a thin plastic film on my Model 3 screen, and I'm wondering if I'm supposed to peel that off, or if it was designed to stay on the car.

    I ask because when I gave my screen a wipe, it was heavily scratched up. This caused me to doubt the durability of the film and wonder if it was supposed to be removed at delivery.

    Ya. It was suppose to be removed at delivery. It’s like one of those new electronic screen protectors to protect the screen while in shipping.

    Ya it should be removed. But I don't think it's supposed to be removed at delivery. You can remove at your leisure. If you are planning on installing an aftermarket screen saver, wait until you are ready to install and remove at the last minute.

    I guess it’s more satisfaction if left to the owner to remove.

    Many people keep it on as a screen protector. It seems to work just as well as aftermarket protectors.

    I left mine on for ~3 months before it got decently scratched up from cleaning.

    About to install the Abstract Ocean glass screen protector.

    I didn’t get one. Had to spend $20 for another plastic one
