I posted this on the other forum but no answers so I thought maybe better here?

I'm still waiting for my Dream Edition to be delivered. I have made arrangements to take it in for PPF and Ceramic Coating with my local guy who did my Porsche. Since others have mentioned having problems with the fob and the card and locking, unlocking, etc., I'm wondering what I should give the installer when I leave the car with him?? I'm also wondering if those of you who have done the PPF installation can tell me if your installer cut holes where the sensors are on the front bumper? Any other helpful suggestions will be greatly appreciated. My guy uses XPEL Ultimate film and either FeynLab or Ceramic Pro for the ceramic treatment. We did Ceramic Pro Gold on the Porsche but he now says the FeynLab is a better product??

Hey! Congratulations on your new car. Did you get the answer to your query yet? Also, how is your experience thus far?
Yes I got the car first week in March. Straight to the detailer (Deep Reflections in Los Gatos) and he did an excellent job with Xpel Ultimate Plus and FeynLab ceramic coatings. I gave him the fob and he had no problems. All is good and loving the car. Drove down and back to Cambria over the past weekend/four days and now I will give the car its first bath to get rid of all the bugs accumulated while driving at high speeds!!

That's great! Thanks for your feedback. By the way, what was the highest speed this car went?

I'm really not sure. I tried the launch control on a deserted straight back road with two friends in the car. Its probably the last time I will use it. It was completely overwhelming. I only held it for around 6 seconds or so but I'm sure we were well over 100 mph. One of my passengers was a former flight medical officer on a carrier and he said it was more g's than he remembered feeling when launching off a carrier in the back seat of a jet.

That's OK. I believe 100+ m/h is a pretty good figure as long as the vehicle remains under control and is stable on the road. No?

What kind of range did you get on this trip? I am most interested in how Lucid does on range when driven aggressively.

Nah. He is just an employee or hired on by AutoGuide.com / Vertical Scope that run these forums. You can simply google search "Vivek Nayyar Vertical Scope" and you will see his relation to all the forums owned by this company posting basic replies to try and spark conversation or revive old topics. He even has blog articles written by him: Feeling Flushed: Best Engine Flushes

The thing that pisses me off is he is just wasting our time. Dude doesn't own a Lucid. I want to chat and learn from people who actually want or own the vehicle.

They are just trying to keep the forum alive as it got squashed by the other lucid owners forums. Recommend you check out the "other" forum before I get banned like the others lol...
That sounds about right based on the very generic replies.

the other forum is dramatically more active, I’m not sure why mentioning it should result in a ban. These are enthusiast forums, and cross pollination should be encouraged, not discouraged.

Xpel is definitely the way to go when it comes to protecting your car. I've used it on a couple of my cars and I can't go back to not using it.

fellow bay area owner here. Curious how you guys addressed the sensors? Just got my car back from OCDetailing today and they did a great job. Car will go back in a couple weeks to check on the sensors as currently they are not cut out. Was told to give it a little time to settle in to see if we should leave as is or cut them out.

If you go to the Xpel.com site under the top left menu: shop-protective film-vehicle kits-vehicle kits and enter information for 2022 Lucid Air, then scroll down to the patterns below you will see they have holes cut out for the sensors.

What kind of issues have you experienced with the sensors @EKu?
