May I ask why you had them leave the protective on?
so that it can be paint corrected and ceramic coated. didnt want to have to deal with the potential swirling / marring that the dealer may cause.

Having you delivery done this way happens all the time with exotic car brands. The owner does not want to have a dealer do more damage to the paint. Detailer s at a dealer are a literally crap shoot and most are horrible. Reuse the same dirty towels, etc. All about speed For them.

The only watch out and this has happened is when you leave the plastic on (not sure what is all on the Jeep) you run the risk of catching any defects and once you drive it off the lot, it’s yours. There have been scratches under the plastic, deep ones.

My suggestion is always to have the plastic removed BUT do not wash or detail the car. That way you can get a good walk around to ensure no major defects before leaving.

I guess I’m not understanding the process here.

OP, you drove 20 hours to the dealer to pick this vehicle up but you did not want the dealer to detail/remove plastic wrap from car.

so, I guess you are not planning to drive it back home? Did you trailer it/drive it home yourself or arrange for some other transporter to pick upand deliver to your home 20-hours away? Or did you have the detailing done locally near the dealer and then drive it home?

the plan was to trailer it back and do all the detailing myself. i will post pics of my process later in this thread.
