Got an invite for SLC First Mile test drive today. Scheduled for next Weds, and they are bringing the truck to me in Park City. Anyone else been contacted for this?

I changed my interior last night from Forest Edge to Black Mountain. Wonder if that had anything to do with it? Timing just seems too close to be mere coincidence.
Im guessing just coincidence? I have a Dec 2018 reservation, BM seats, in salt lake area, but no contact about a guide or first mile event yet. I had heard they were doing it by "area" though not exactly sure how they define that. I'm in Saratoga Springs, about 40 min south of the Service Center.

R1S. March/April delivery window.

I chatted with CS today. They confirmed I signed up to receive alerts several months ago. They said that the event is offered to "eligible" reservation holders. But he couldn't define what eligible means. He said he there would be future events, so not to worry.
Well - after what appeared to be a non-committal response from CS earlier this week regarding First Mile Drives, they called me today and said they were able to get me on the calendar for the 23rd! I like the under-committ, over-deliver approach. Hope they are taking the same approach with R1S deliveries :)

I shared this with Widabeest on a different thread but thought I would post here as people look at ways to maintain their vehicle for their enjoyment and possibly as an investment should they decide to sell in a few years.

This bid is for my R1S but probably isn’t much different for R1Ts—especially for the front.


You are a Utah guy if I remember right.
I was directed to Logicc protection studio for cost and quality of work from Makes and Models who uses all the protection companies around SLC.

Marco, the owner got right back to me by text-I liked that a lot and helped me curate what I thought made the most sense—but there are really good comments about not doing anything and just seeing what happens. I just haven’t had a vehicle with that much flat/front-facing paint because there is no grill on this truck.


From Marco:
Absolutely. Ppf is the best overall protection against Rockchips and scratches doing the full front end and lower impacts areas is great protection and the rest of the vehicle in ceramic coating. Doing the full vehicle in PPF is becoming more common now days to have full complete coverage of the vehicle.
Ceramic coatings will help with ease of maintenance and providing a nice shine.

Full front end you’d be $1650 plus any additional impact areas we decide. Full vehicle you’d be be $7000 for all painted surfaces, we also carry a satin paint protection film that takes the factory color and gives it a unique satin finish. Film comes with 10yr manufacturer warranty against yellowing or cracking. Ceramic coating on the film with self healing properties against light scratches.

We ultimately build a package upon your needs, let us know what works best for your and we can accommodate.
Nice! Super helpful. I'll be sure to reach out to this guy as my date gets closer.
