2019 Tahoe RST

Recommended Posts

Yesterday, after 2weeks of negotiations, and absolutely no rush, I signed my life away again.

 

Traded my Black 2016 Tahoe for......

 

A brand new (15miles) 2019 Summit White Chevy Tahoe RST

6.2L 440hp  460 ft lb torque 

3.23 rear ratio

Magnetic ride control

10 speed auto, w/ a manual mode

170amp Alternator 

22” RST Wheels

RST Black trim package (no chrome!)

Jet Black interior 

Fully loaded(the only option, well there’s 2 it doesn’t have, automatic side steps, and Brembo brakes)

 

Anyway,  I asked that they not touch the paint and they were very understanding 

 

I rinsed

foamed

strip washed

iron removed

(it needs clayed in some spots, but I skipped this, because I dont have time to polish at the moment, and there are no swirls present)

Guard and Glossed

 

wheels..

WC

TRC

hit face and barrels

blow dried

topped with tire shine

and CB 2.0

 

also hit all black trim, and front bumper and grill (future bug splatter concerns) with CB 2.0

 

quick Interior Detailer up front, rest tomorrow 

 

Clayed mitt/ glass sealant and boost windshield 

side and rear glass tomorrow when my daughter is napping 

 

Part of the deal, sorta, was that, my Black Tahoe would show up fully detailed, fluids topped off, good tires brakes and all, of course, this was all true and only 24k miles kn the thing ?

First pic, just after I got it home after work this morning, hard to tell, but it was filthy!  Dealership sits just off a major highway outside of DC3E8255BA-C55A-4033-9F0D-C482CFD452D1.thumb.jpeg.cf42362073debc3d4d0d443942f67c88.jpeg

That’s sweet!!! I like the rims a lot!! Good choice!

Thanks,  I am still unsure how much I like these wheels,  I really like the Black wheels that Adam has on his Yukon,  Going to wait it out a little.  I have received a lot of compliments on these already.

I'll give a +1 on liking the rims, I think they look great on the new rig, which also looks great.   Congratulations on your new ride.

While I have everyone’s attention, I need your alls opinion....

 

I found this large scratch(and a smaller, shorter one under it) on the front bumper,  the dealership says they will fix it.  

 

Should I push for a new bumper, or will a repaint be enough?

That looks removable to me - some Correcting Polish and orange pads should make that look fine.

Edit-  this was a couple small rub marks, and my nail must have got caught between them, luckily I found it myself, and didn’t have to be showed up at the dealership.  I actually got them out with Revive and a Blue Hex.  So it was a rookie mistake and not looking at it throughly and correctly.

 

Thanks to everyone for your input

I dont know much about body work but can thye remove the bumper to spray it? The last thing u want is overspray on the whole car. For resale reasons and well as ur own well being!  Ive had local car dealers use horrible shops to fix 2 of my cars they damaged over the years(similar damage) . One the overspray was so bad i had them buy the car back from me.   

 I think as long as thye remove if i would re paint.  Good luck
