Sort of. Its like buying a new phone, it has a film with a pull tab that’s designed to protect it during transport. Its not designed to be left on. I’m thinking more of the glass ant-scratch covers that are essential on phones

Not sort of, it has a protective film in it which works very well! Mine still has it in and is 1 week shy of a year old.
No, absolutely sort of. Do you leave the protective screen over your TV when you buy it? The cover that comes on the Macan PCM from new is just to protect it from finger prints during transport and has a pull tab on it so it can be removed when you pick the car up. The first thing the SE did after the big reveal for mine was show me the inside and remove the transport film. I’m taking about proper screen protectors, like the glass ones for mobile phones and tablets.

I take the one off the TV cause I'm not touching it with my fingers all the time, common sense an all that!
If the SE took the screen protector off mine I'd have got him to put another one on. Surprised you didn't complain about it.

I think the centre console is more likely to get scratched than the PCM. But is there anyone out there that can supply protection for that either DIY or while you wait?

could do with some for the PCM too. As its a touch screen its bound to get scratched at some point. Have protectors on my iPad and iPhones.

No issues leaving mine on for a year and a half before I sold it.

New one will be getting the same treatment.

If you have a search, YOU had a reply to that question in January 👍🏻

Yeah, but is that the only company and has anyone purchase a kit to DIY?

And I've left mine on for that reason!
