So, you’ve taken the plunge, and have invested in an eco-friendly, clean energy Tesla. You’ve spent hours researching the economics of owning your very own Tesla, and now it’s time to think about paint protection and auto detailing for your Tesla.

So how do you make the most out of your investment and preserve the value of your car, while maximizing return? Teslas are notorious for having weak paint, being prone to rock chips, scratches, and “spider webs”, and must be treated with extra care. Read on to learn more about Tesla paint protection and make the most out of your new investment!
