The writing is on the wall: humans as a whole are moving towards electric and hybrid cars. In fact, bans on new fossil fuel vehicles by 2030 and most states in the U.S. promote hybrid and electric vehicles.
That means the up and coming Tesla vehicles will only continue to grow in popularity.
There’s just one catch: these cars are expensive. The cost of a Tesla ranges from $40,000 for a Model 3 to $200,000 for a Roadster. So, it’s understandable that those who take the plunge and buy a Tesla want to make sure their investment lasts for a long time.
In other words:
You wouldn’t want to wake up one morning to see that your Tesla has lost its gleam, that the interior is faded, or that there are paint chips and dings all over the body from gravel or harsh weather conditions.
At Flawless Cleaning and Detailing, we understand how you feel. We know you don’t want your auto investment to turn shabby in a few months or years either.
That’s why we want to help you protect your Tesla. We’re here to help you know how to keep your car looking brand new for years. Let’s get started!
Tesla’s paint is very soft, which means it can scratch very easily. Nobody wants a swirled up ride. Not only is Tesla paint soft, it is much thinner and can only be machine polished so many times. So how can it be protected? We’ll explain that soon enough.
Is Investing In Protecting Your Tesla Worth It?
You just paid thousands of dollars to buy a Tesla. The last thing you feel like doing now is coughing up more money.
But don’t forget:
You bought a Tesla with your future in mind. Otherwise, why not buy a cheap car powered by fossil fuels?
It’s not time to turn back now. You made one investment in your future, and now it’s time to secure that investment
We’ll get into the benefits of window tinting, ceramic coating, and paint protection film in a bit.
But for now, trust that each of these services extends the lifespan of your vehicle significantly.
And if that’s not enough, they boost the value of your Tesla dramatically.
In other words:
If you ever want to sell your Tesla, investing in any of these products will make your car more valuable – and should easily pay themselves off.
So, yes – protecting your Tesla is 100% worth the investment!
How A Ceramic Coating Protects Tesla Paint
1 – Make Cleaning Your Tesla Easy
You don’t turn heads with a dirty sports car.
Rather, if you want to impress people and get them to take a second look at your car you need to keep it spotless.
Regularly washing and waxing your Tesla can really help. But chances are, you know exactly how time and energy-consuming that process can be.
So what if you learned that you wouldn’t ever need to wax your car again? (Please refrain from doing your happy dance now, and wait until you finish reading the article.)
Ceramic coatings gives your Tesla a high-gloss finish that eliminates the need for waxing.
Additionally, a ceramic coating has hydrophobic properties which repels dirt and liquids, making surfaces easier to clean.
2 – Enhanced Paint Color
The hard, glass-like covering that a ceramic coating provides is resistant to light scratches and fading to the paint on a Tesla – meaning you’ll retain a perfect appearance for a longer period of time.
But you don’t have to wait years for the payoff of ceramic coating.
As soon as it’s applied, ceramic coating enhances the color of your Tesla. The color itself grows richer and deeper, and of course, the new vehicle gleam is eye-popping!
3 – Protect Against Exterior Damage
A ceramic coating bonds at the molecular level to seal and protect surfaces. That means you get more than protection against scratches and stains in the vehicle paint.
You also get paint protection from environmental contaminants, harmful UV rays, and insect acids.
And since you create an inseparable bond on a molecular level with your Tesla’s paintwork, you can drive confidently knowing the ceramic coating won’t be washed off like a wax or sealant.
Maintain Perfect Paint With PPF For Your Tesla
Paint Protection Film (PPF) takes a look at ceramic coating and says “Great job! Now, let me one-up you.”
In other words:
Paint protection film takes Tesla exterior protection to the next level. In fact, applying PPF is like giving your Tesla protective armor.
Let’s take a look at how paint protection film can change your life!
1 – Stop Exterior Damage
We list exterior protection as the first benefit of paint protection film, because this is its number one job.
Stones, sand, tar, and other road debris wreak havoc on your car’s paint. If that’s not enough acid
rain, bugs, and bird dropping will finish the job.
However, paint protection film (sometimes called clear bra) can keep all that from happening.
Lightweight and transparent, paint protection film is seamlessly applied to the exterior of your vehicle, which aids in preventing the paint from fading and damaging.
PPF is even better than a ceramic coating because it is thicker – meaning it is harder to penetrate.
Literally once PPF is adhered to the paint on your Tesla, the old concerns of worrying about the film peeling, cracking, fading, aging, yellowing or blistering are no more with a ten year warranty against any of this happening to the film.
2 – Self Heal Scratches
This is where XPEL’s PPF begins to take things to the next level.
Not only does this top-of-the-line paint protection film guard against everyday threats like gravel and bugs, it also self-heals when it is scratched.
That’s right – you can take a wire brush (up to 6 mil) to paint protection film, and then pour warm water on it and watch the scratches disappear.
3 – Boost Vehicle Aesthetics
There are numerous ways of protecting a vehicle. For example, you could attach a huge steel bumper to the front of your Tesla to eliminate the risk of animals damaging it.
However, that fix wouldn’t look very good.
On the other hand, paint protection film enhances the aesthetics of a car as soon as it is applied.
You can’t see the film with the naked eye – but you can tell that it makes your vehicle glisten like new!
You can also get unique paint protection films that give your Tesla an attractive finish. We have a plethora of fashion film options at Flawless Cleaning and Detailing.
4 – Save Money On Expensive Vehicle Repairs
Have you ever needed to repaint a vehicle? If not, count yourself lucky.
While the costs to paint a car varies on many factors, you can expect to pay $5,000 for a high-quality paint job.
In other words:
You want to avoid repainting your car if at all possible.
And here’s the thing:
Every time your paint is punctured – even if it’s just a tiny chip from a piece of gravel – the protective barrier is broken and an area is created where rust and other damage can set in.
That’s why making the investment in paint protection film and getting armor for your car can save you tons of money in the end.
