    I just had to say Hello. I've been stalking the forum for a little while now and my husband and I finally picked up our new 2020 X (5 seater) this past week. It's currently in the detail shop getting paint correction, PPL wrap, ceramic coating, UV tint and chrome delete. Can't wait to get it back so we can get out and enjoy this great car!

    Welcome! The two of you look ecstatic and the pup in the back looks right at home. Happy holidays and enjoy the X! You made the right choice by sending it into the detail shop first thing.

    I picked my new MX up yesterday in the UK. Think I had a grin as big as yours. Like you straight to the detailer for PPF & ceramic coating. Can’t wait until the 2nd of Jan to get it back. Enjoy guys

    Big Congrats
    You guys have amazing patience to be without it so long.
    I did wrapping and paint protection on my first one (P85)
    But the when I traded it in 14 months later on a P100D I realized that I was not a good candidate for paint protection.
    Chrome delete on the other hand......

    Curious, what makes one a good candidate for PPF?

    (As an aside, I went without for 4 weeks while my car was at the body shop for paint and fitment issues from the due bill = $7600 worth, followed by 1.5 weeks at the detailer getting the XPEL and ceramic coating applied. I at least got to drive it for 5 weeks before the body shop was ready to start the repair.)

    Someone who keeps their car a minimum of 2 years would be a good candidate.

    Ah, now I understand. The car I sold when I bought my Model X Raven was a 2003 Acura MDX. When I got my Model X in Seprember, I upgraded my adult son to my 2012 MDX. Why do I fear that my Tesla won’t have anywhere near the longevity?

    Ha! We already get that look. We live full time in a motor coach (and are young, 53 & 45) and travel all over the country. X will be towed behind us on trailer. IMG_20191218_080647.jpg
