    Xpel Ultimate on everything from the mirrors forward, including the headlights, by Paint Protection Plus in Plymouth, MI. Then CQuartz Finest on the entire car, by C. Charles Hahn - Automotive Appearance Specialist in Lansing, MI. Absolutely love it! :love:

    I did the same on my MC Red, now nearly fourteen months old. I have the same guy who applied the CQuartz, Wes Waltz, do the washes. He is as meticulous about washing as he was about applying the CQuartz Finest. Every time he completes a wash I'm just blown away by the depth of color. The CQuartz dramatically enhances the appearance.

    If you get the opportunity, park next to another MC Red that hasn't been CQuartzed. You'll think the cars were built with a different color paint.

    Wes did my CQuartz finest application. For the washes do you have to take the car to his shop, or does he go mobile?

    he told me they have a mobile crew and have a weekly maintenance plan that's $300/mo :scared:

    i'm going to stick with my regular guy that i know and trust, and take the Tesla back to Wes when it's time for a detail.

    Yeah, I'd like to just have him do a once-a-month wash but come mobile to my office. I do the interim maintenance myself with his "waterless" wash system. It works pretty well.
