if u order from factory, what does dealer do on car arrival, and what can u stop?
I've never ordered a car from the factory before, and I'm not sure I will be able to get a S550. If I do, I'm ordering one. I'm curious about the dealer process when the car arrives. I realize they have to remove some stuff upon arrival (I think seats are covered or whatever, and maybe stuff on the outside to protect during transit), but what else? More importantly, what can you stop?
Can you say, "just get it off the truck, get the car "unpacked" and step back? Don't wash or wax it. And for the love of God no pinstripes or any other dealer add-ons or that infernal sticker." Heck, what does a dealer typically do to a car on arrival? Do they even wax it? (I'm guessing no, but I have no clue).
I know the dealer hates customers who get obsessive like this, but I think it'd be pretty cool to be there when it arrives, get some pics, and definitely have a chance to grab it before any accidental scratches or anything happen. (Although, I'm not sure how I could wash, clay, and wax at anywhere but the house, which would mean a drive with unprotected paint, which is probably bad too).
Anyway, I've always been curious about this, and as I debate whether to move forward, I thought I'd try get some info. Thanks for reading.
