    I am so thrilled with this car. I driven and owned number of nice cars from Benz to Lexus and Porsche. But the Model S is the best so far. The ride, features and looks are outstanding. They are all nice but I am very happy I waited and purchased a 70D. Based on the comments I have read on this forum, and my own experience test driving a P85D, I think the 70D offers the best value. That includes comparing it to a previously owned Tesla.

    I spent a lot of time reading this and other forums, trying to decide what would be the best route to take for protecting the paint. I settled on doing the grill, mirrows, and up approximate one third of the hood with Xpel Ultimate. Then the entire body and wheels were done in Opticoat Pro. Finally the carpet was also sealed in a fabric protector (I forget the brand). The result are awesome! The body absolutely shines.

    Nice. Can you tell where the Xpel stops on the hood?

    Only from certain angles, but it's not offensive at all to me.

    Tip: Black out the chrome trim beneath the doors so the lines are more straight and cleaner looking.

    I love my opticoat, easily wipes clean. Recently went on a road trip and all the dead bugs easily wiped away with a warm wet cloth.

    I am 100% satisfied, and I am use to driving fast high end cars.

    MrT,

    I'd love to know where you had it done (also how much it cost). I'm in Dundalk MD and I'm about to pick up my car on Monday.

    Thanks!
