    As we already know, Tesla detailers/staff don't do a very good job in regards to taking care of your paint.

    They constantly swipe it with a cloth and swirl up your paint, on top of paint defects from the factory. My Model X is white, so I didn't want to make a big deal about it since it wasn't too noticeable even in direct sunlight. But my Model 3 will be a darker gray.


    Has anyone had success asking Tesla to have a third party perform paint correction BEFORE delivery?

    I doubt they will allow as you don’t own car at that point ..my friend who just took delivery she gave instructions to DS to not wash car ..that is probably best u can do

    You're probably right...

    Let's Pivot. Does anyone have experience requesting paint correction after delivery?

    Are you talking about from Tesla or 3rd party? I mean, you own the car after you take delivery so you can take it anywhere you want for paint correction.
