    Y'all have any oddball "pet peeves" or preferences with new vehicles?
    I've only bought just a handful of new vehicles, but, when I do, I like to leave the protective film on the radio screens, and the plastic in the carpets, etc.

    When I bought my hellcat, the salesman was adamant that I remove that blue screen protector from my radio.
    3,400 miles, it still there. :)

    I also like to leave the paper plates on as long as possible, and any dealer QC markings on rims, Windows as well.

    Just something about having a new car.

    I draw the line at leaving the plastic seat protectors on, and I hide, or store all the air bag warnings, and other papers that hang, like the one from the visor, whenever I remove the paper plates. It's like a christening.
    If I get the truck or car dirty before the paper plates come off, just doesn't feel right.

    Naa, same with new audio & computer components. First thing I have to do is get all of that protective film and stickers off. I prefer to see everything in all it's shining glory myself. Kind of like not peeling sun burned skin :)

    Must be genetic...my wife is/was EXACTLY like that. I have persevered, however...called it my radio condom and she backed off like a little kid touching a hot stove...:rolleyes:

    No I can't say that I do any of that. I do save the papers, etc in case the next owner demands they are with the car.
