I recently got a call from Jim who had recently got a Tesla Model S. The car was nested at his home in Kenwood arching over beautiful wineries of the Sonoma Valley - another reason why I love what I do! We conversed a little and I got to know about one of his passions: Bees! It would be safe to assume that a person who takes care of bees has a keen eye for intricate information and details. Later, he went on to show me his hives and I learnt a few nifty details about how bee habitat and how the 'guardian' bees converge onto outsiders such as wasps.
Fun fact: To this date, I have yet to wax a single Tesla automobile. Yup, it was going to be an Opti-Coat Pro treatment! This treatment is popular and recommended by several members of the Tesla Motors Club, professionals from the detailing industry and enthusiasts on various automotive forums. The trend towards coatings has never been this hot. Why, you may ask?
Coatings, especially Opti-Coat Pro, provide protection against UV rays, chemicals(bird bombs, tree sap), mineral deposits and scratches for an extended period of time. So instead of having the car waxed every few months, a permanent or semi-permanent paint coating can provide a superior protection that lasts for years instead of just months. In other words, coatings offer both more resilient AND more durable protection. What does this mean to the you? Less and easier washes, less scratches, retained cosmetic value and overall a glossy look all year round.
A question I get asked often is, "how does it look in comparison to sealants?" My answer is usually, "it depends." The gloss of the vehicle depends more on how smooth(or well polished) the vehicle is and less on the sealant/wax/coating on the car. However, the adjectives I would have for Opti-Coat Pro are usually "candy-like, slightly tacky during curing time", "high-gloss mechanical & modern", "dusky at evening and mornings especially for metallic flakes" and "can give your many top tier waxes a run for their money."
The modern society is filled with busy and bustling people and though waxes are still used, the market for the latter is slowly dwindling to enthusiasts only. Tesla owners, through their coveted forums(like this one) and networks, have realized this. In this instance, Jim can have the peace of mind knowing that an investment such as a Tesla is going to look great for years and years to come! If the car is evolving due to technology then so can you!
And that was it. I would like to thank you(and maybe even meet you!) for checking out my post and to Jim for letting me detail his car, being an excellent host and mentoring me on bees and discussing other progressive sociophilosophic(just made that word up!) topics. Feel free to leave a comment and share or like! Till next time!
