First post. Apologies if in the wrong place, please feel free to move it. Long time dreamer of Model S, too to be new owner! Can't wait to take delivery! I just purchased an ex-demo 70d, and am considering getting a PPF (after professional detailing) on it due to suffering quite badly on resale values in the past with rock chips and scratches. Due to my circumstances, I will be selling my model S in about 16 months time and obviously would like max resale value. Colour is solid black (limited options due to ex-demo). 2 questions: 1. would you pay more for a used model S with PPF on it? I would get Xpel ultimate, professionally installed of course, full car coverage. 2. would the car be worth say 1-1.5k more with pristine paint underneath (i.e. if i removed the ppf prior to sale)? obviously I wish I could keep it forever, but due to emigrating in 16 months sadly thats not an option (though I'd buy a new one out in OZ anyway). Further question to owners - how soft is the paint? my experience is mainly with german cars, and to me their paint seems very thin and easily scratched/chipped. I appreciate any thoughts.
