    I'm getting a ceramic coating as part of the lease, but it's the lease company organizing it and I just take it in after I get the car. I have looked at prices for PPF and while it would be nice, it was quite expensive.

    I have a few bottles of ceramic coating waiting desperately to get applied...

    I was not really willing to spend thousands on wrapping.

    Same Perthboat. Got the invoice earlier this week and rego papers today. Too bad delivery is in late October.
    I had to ask what the DECLARED AT field in the rego papers was for, turns out it's for the suburb you sign it in?

    Received my invoice today confirming VIN 5YJ3F7EB5KF4433XX and build date 09/07/2019
    Delivery date is scheduled for Oct 17 in Perth

    Veda, perhaps not split production for this sequence after all?

    Is the invoice emailed or attached to your account on tesla.com?

    I self applied ceramic coating - did a practise run on the golf before selling it and even with no experience and fairly haphazard application the end result was excellent. The only downside is that its fairly labour intensive and took 3-4 hours to clean car then apply but the cost is <200 for the liquid. No protection from stone chips though.

    Wrapping is low 1000's up to 3-4k+ depending on partial vs full and I just can't see the return on investment over the life of the car for me personally but plenty of people find it's worthwhile. Someone mentioned a good way to judge is to look at an existing car with a few stone chips and think whether you'd spend 1.5k to fix those and if the answer is no then wrapping probably isn't worth it for you.

    Unless, of course, you can't buy the car you want in the colour you want.
    That then can swing Wrapping to be a more attractive option.
    I very much liked a silver Model 3 with the aero covers also in silver.
    Changes them from a functional but not particularly attractive look to a mix that goes well together.

    after received the confirmed delivery date and time, received the rego papers to sign an hour later. Of course needs to be printed and scanned in colour and my printer decided that today was the day it decided to die....

    For owners of SR+ "Partial Premium" Audio – Would like to know any related feedback about audio. I have seen reviews about "Premium Audio" and how it will further improve with v10 and later updates. However, upgrade to "Premium Audio" is not a software upgradeable option for SR+ models. Thanks.

    If this is any consolation, I haven't even got a VIN.

    Spoke too soon. Tesla just called to advise there is damage to the rear quarter and it won’t be ready till next week! Hope they do a good job fixing it. I wish the delay was due to the 12v battery instead.

    What ceramic coating do you have? There appears to be a large amount of suppliers and they all think theirs is the best. I am considering getting some and doing this myself also.
