    Mildew smell- no visible signs of water

    We're in SoCal also, have an X and a 3, both developed the similar smell. Took the 3 into the service center and they said it was due to tree sap getting into the vents. They used an ozium spray to get rid of the smell. It came back less than a week later. For our X, we had our 2nd year...

    Lack of loaner cars?

    I have the same experience. My service center is Costa Mesa, which is the busiest in the US. They told me that there is an average of 10 people waiting for loaners on a daily bases. They offer Lyft as an alternative.

    Left Headlight dimmer than right headlight.

    Update: Now both my "Eyelid" leds are dim. Also noticed other Model 3s driving around with one side dim as well. Seems like a common problem. Will visit my local SC and report back.

    Blackvue750s 2ch installation issues?

    Yes, everything stayed intact after SC replaced the 12v battery. I have 2 channels, no blackvue battery. No issue with the Blackvue draining the traction battery other than the normal vampire drain at about about 3 miles overnight. Been running three months 24/7 with no issues.

    Painless dent removal - Recommendation in SoCal

    Got a quarter size dent on my drive door. Got a quote of $450, saying they need to remove the inside door panel to access the dent in order to push it out. Is this the going rate? Any recommendation for a Painless dent service in SoCal?

    Blackvue750s 2ch installation issues?

    I installed my BlackVue directly to the 12v battery in Feb 2018 and had issues where the battery was overcharging which caused a rotten egg smell. Tesla service center replaced the 12v battery and had not an issue since. It could be that I received a defect battery at delivery or new firmware...
