For those of us buying from an out-of-state dealer, generally it makes sense to have the vehicle shipped (not driven). And when the vehicle has to be shipped, it might as well be shipped to a nearby detailer for prep and application of whatevers (e.g. Opticoat).

I've told my out-of-state dealer to do the minimum (hook it up to the computer to check stuff, check for damager, etc), and then stick it on the shipping truck with wrapping and all still on it headed for the detailer where the work will be done. I'll pick it up myself from the detailer when they are done with it. I'll pretend the detailer's shop is a showroom

To me, this makes sense.
