Welp one week in found some annoying pain nicks on the hood. I eventually want to wrap car (I think) but any advice from anyone? Does Tesla have a service that will fix or other thoughts ?

@illmaticwes81 I feel for you, looks like your car is black, if that is the case you have the easiest color to touch up. Its possible that touch up, wet sanding and paint correction may work.

Everyone else who has not taken delivery yet and is planning to get PPF this is a good lesson learned. PPF was the first thing I did after I took delivery. The Model 3 bumper is flat and a pebble magnet, the hood is low and is also susceptible to pebbles and rocks.

You can wait for a ceramic coating, tint or any other treatment you have in mind but as @illmaticwes81 experienced PPF is not something you want to wait for. If you ever plan to do it don't procrastinate, should be done ASAP after you take delivery.
