This is my first high end car where I am really trying to keep it in good condition. I'm concerned over all of the typical imperfections that will pop up over time: swirls, scratches, scruffs, etc. Xpel body wrap seems like a good way to keep the paint in very good condition and prevent swirls and a lot of natural surface scratches that happen of time (e.g., from rocks, parking lots). I read this thread by Steve about keeping the Model S clean, and I've seen many others on the forums going for full Xpel wraps on their car: Tesla Model S cleaning tips While I can understand the many benefits of Xpel at keeping the car in great condition, it seems like Xpel wrapping is quite expensive. For a full wrap, I've seen quotes anywhere from $3k-$6k. I've already pushed my budget quite hard to get this car. I don't quite have the money to throw another few grand at the car easily. I *could* push it and get it... but I'm wondering what is cheaper and/or better long term (over 4-5 years). It seems like every 2 years you could go for a high end detailing job and paint correction. You could get chips taken care of independently, and I suspect that Xpel isn't going to prevent every kind of chip/scratch (e.g., some that penetrate the film). Without Xpel though, you could be putting more time/effort in to washing the car and caring for it. Anyone more experienced Xpel vs. detailing have a good pros/cons list of the two? I'd really appreciate it.
