If your current rep is not helping, you can request another one. Instigate and escalate.
Thanks, I will try requesting another rep.

Because it's actually hard to see. The car needs to be completely clean and it shows best in direct sunlight. I honestly did not see it until the Ceramic Pro detailer pointed it out to me. Believe me, I wish I noticed it before I made the purchase. The dealer also left a spring spacer compressing one half of the spring. I did not discover this until 1,000 miles in. Thankfully the dealer paid for a wheel alignment after it was removed.
