When the car came off the train, there is was so much dirt and stuff... even with the protetive film they put now (I can't believe they didnt do that sooner when I saw the how dirty it gets just getting to the dealer).
I gave specific orders not to wax the car. But I let them wash it. I figured no harm in that and it helps with final inspection of the paint before driving it off the lot. I waited 30 days and waxed her... not a single swirl mark on her.
My dealer is one of the largest volume dealers in the US and the owner is a big time Corvette collecter. They know how to handle Corvettes and the customers that buy them. They asked me exactly how I wanted them to handle the car when it was delivered to them. They even made suggestions based on past experience with other Vette buyers. They detailed mine - helped make the delivery more enjoyable! /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif
I washed mine myself at the dealers lot within 15 minutes of it coming off the carrier truck. Used Zaino car wash and a soft cotton wash towel. Then they did the inspection, etc....3 hrs later it was home /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif
Thanks guys/gals for your responses. I really appreciate your time in answering my question. I just want a pleasant experience from the beginning, until I drive it home without having to run into any problems whatsoever.
