The first thing you should do after you buy your new Tesla is have Xpel Ultimate PPF installed on your car. (If your paint needs correction to make it perfect, of course do that before having Xpel installed). I had Xpel Ultimate installed 3 days after I got my car. For 18 months it has protected my paint from rocks, bird droppings, runaway shopping carts etc. But 2 weeks ago it saved me a few thousand dollars. My wife was backing out of the garage and had her eye on our truck. Unfortunately she hit the garage wall. This is what the car looked like: I could see a dent in the left front fender. I wasn't sure how much damage was done to the paint and how much was absorbed by the Xpel. I called Evan Rowe of Auto Armour LLC., my Xpel installer, and he came over. Fortunately I had the car sitting in the sun and Evan was able to pull off the damaged Xpel without damaging the clearcoat: After all the Xpel was removed from the front bumper and the fender, it looked like this: The Xpel had absorbed 99.9% of the paint damage. Unfortunately the front fender was slightly dented: Evan recommended a mobile dent guy, Israel Hernandez of Dent EZ Out. Israel came out and worked on the dent: After he finished the dent was gone: But there were a few scratches that got through the Xpel: I took the car to Wes Walz at Elite Finish Detailing and he tried to buff out the scratches: When that didn't work, I bought some Tesla touch-up paint and Wes applied it. This is the result after he let it dry and smoothed it out: It looks new again and I'm going to Evan on Monday to have the Xpel reapplied. If I hadn't had the Xpel I would be facing a BIG painting bill. You can't take it to MACCO. And the chances of matching the existing paint exactly? You can't make a better investment than to install Xpel Ultimate.
