Again - cheap & high quality labors make difference.
1. No California paint chemical restrictions resulted to a better paint quality.
2. Chinese labors are far better than US labors.
3. Wrapping a car in China is much cheaper than in US.

I am another Model X owner disappointed with the paint. $130k for this car and on the first 2000 mile road trip, I have to have the front professionally buffed out because bugs ruined the finish. 150k road miles on my Escalade and 100k miles on my Lexus and that was NEVER an issue... and the Escalade was black!!!

No wonder Tesla Sales recommends a clear wrap on the front. They were right. In my opinion, if their paint and clear coat are that bad from Fremont, they should offer the clear wrap free on a $100k++ car.

That's interesting, everyone would get a "bare metal" finish rolling off the line, and you would pay to wrap it in your color pref.

That's actually brilliant, because the company can pump out non-stop the same car with Black or White interior options, and the wrap can be done later based on demand...

I own a 2020 X in white. I love the white but have seen an explosion of them in my town. I considered doing a color wrap but the cost was $4500 dollars from a body shop. I would let Tesla do this for me for sure.

Hope it comes to US. Ceramic coating, too.
More competition = more reviews = clearer who offer best QC vs. pricing...
Am guessing some who offer service now will become Tesla contractors?
Some owners can be more :eek::eek::eek: picky with Tesla but hesitate to critique independents...
