    at the Fremont Supercharger right now on the way home from OCDetailing, 5 Model X's, 7 Model S's charging!

    I've seen 1 Model X and 1 Model S delivery happen and it looks like a Model X is queued along with 4 S's for delivery.

    How was the "Spa" treatment? I'm setup for the 1st weekend in June. Glad to hear that deliveries are rolling along.

    Merlin's Mani-Pedi and Facial resulted in perfection! He's ready to cast spells :)

    The X's may be customer deliveries

    Awesome color! Do you mind sharing info on what you got done and cost.

    XPEL on the whole front, top of FaWDs, bottom 4-5" of the FaWDs, similar bottom edge of front doors + outer edges of front doors, rear bumper + spoiler (i.e. anything that could get bumped on a door/hatch opening and the front vulnerabilities.

    cQuartz nano coating everywhere

    50% tint on front side windows.

    XPEL Stealth wrap on the backs of all glossy seat backs to cut the gloss and protect them.

    ~$5k

    Very worth it, IMHO.

    When I was there to pick up Merlin I had a chance to see another customer's Blue X wrapped all in stealth -- very cool looking, not my preference (I like the liquid gloss look) but gorgeous!

    Thanks!

    So are the lines visible since you didn't wrap the entire car? Based on that photo I don't see any lines!

    Love to see a pic of those back seat backs. Did you do it at a window tinting place?

    I have a few more pics, @Joseph Torbati at OCDetailing has more. Unfortunately I have yet to successfully upload an image to an album of mine (or even to Ohmman's Deep Metallic Blue album) so including pictures here is a huge pain in the @$$.

    @MonsterCarter -- lines follow panel lines, so they are not real obvious. You have to know what you are looking for and look for them.

    Do you get any plastic smell from having the seat backs done inside the car? My wife and baby are sensitive and I was just curious... Thanks for the info by the way... Never thought of covering those seat backs. Great idea... I'm not loving the shiny and I was hoping Tesla would come out with different ideas... This may be a solution.

    You must by lying. Everyone knows that there are no Model Xs on the road, because they are all disabled at service centers with doors that don't work, and owner's trying to figure out how to use the lemon law to get their money back.... :rolleyes:

    I was starting to think the same thing. Every time i see a Model X on the road, my first thought is not how nice and how cool the car is, it's how is the door working out? Any latch problems? Did the door align perfectly? etc.

    I guess this is not a good way to think like this but until my X is fixed to my specification. I can't help myself lol!

    No smell at all!

    (The PVC thing between the seats is a cradle for my plane)

    Not everyone can get a service appointment right away to fix their issues.

    What was done to this car? BTW, the blue and white is awesome! I love the high-gloss... is it cQuartz?
