    So, I'm dropping Verity off with ChicagoDipped next week. I'm trying to assemble some information to help them take care of my girl; the dipper's got a friend with a Model X in Florida (who's dipped his own ride), and he's reached out to them for tips; but I also want to be able to walk him through the special areas of the car on my own.

    Has anybody got any thoughts for me, information I should pass on to him, before he dives in? Anybody had their car wrapped, and had any problem areas thereafter?

    Here's what I've come up with so far, after a thorough trawl through these forums:

    • Capacitive sensors on the FWDs – While I know most of the Autopilot / AutoPark sensors on the Model X are ultrasonic, and apparently work just fine through protective wraps (and probably, thus, through spray-on dip), I'm concerned about the capacitive touch-sensors at the foot of each of FWDs. Has anybody had a protective wrap like XPEL, or a decorative wrap, applied to that area? Would you mind testing it out with your hands for me? I'm pretty sure a wrap would interfere with the touch-sensitive.
    • Tight tolerances on the auto-spoiler – on Performance-variant Model X's, it sounds like the spoiler's adjustment is on a pretty tight tolerance, and wears thin protective wraps applied. Can anybody verify this and/or provide photos? I may have him just avoid the area underneath the spoiler altogether … unsure, as of yet.
