My car is finally here! Pick up tommorow!



the car should be here late today, so I can have it ready for noon on Tuesday. I know no detail, same applies to washing it?

thats the email from my SA. I'm asking they do not wash or detail the car.

First time ever I will be taking car straight from dealer to the tint shop...going with 40% Huper Optik's ceramic.

Next day I'm going on a road trip from Dallas To San Antonio the trip will be leaving Wed returning Friday with a total driving mileage of 740 miles give or take 10 miles.

should I take my new car or should I take the car on my road trip or the car I'm going to be selling in possibly to carmax when I return (to save on miles) .

The consensus is that since the clear is cured powder, you don't need to wait to detail and wash it since it doesn't have to dry.

I got lucky when I picked mine up cause even though the dealer washed & detailed mine there were no swirl marks. I'm curious to see how your 40% tint comes out. Did you get black interior? If you do take it on that road trip, just remember not to go over 80 mph until the 1200 miles break in period.
