I honestly think having a dealer detail the car is a mistake, but I am an admitted paint snob. I told my dealer to not touch the car and to let me do it all. Granted I'm in California, so weather is less of an issue here.
Every RS I had seen so far had swirls and scratches, but mine luckily avoided it. I did find a couple of small paint flaws from the factory, but they are minor enough for me to not really mind on a mass market car. Obviously the orange peel on these cars is atrocious, but I don't feel like color sanding my car, so I will live with it.
I'm having everything in front of the doors covered in Xpel in two weeks. Unfortunately, that means I'm not driving the car until after then!
