It's only tape that they need to remove from outside of the car right? So would it be ok if you let the dealer take the tape off.
Ya, when I was at the dealership they asked me to take the tape off there so we could both inspect the car, which we did. Taking the tape off is very easy and I would suggest you do it yourself, but at the dealership in case there is any damage that needs to be addressed. I only mention taking it off yourself because there are a couple spots up on the top of the tape that attach to the rubber around the window that will peel away the rubber if it is torn off, which the dealers will often do.
