    Paint repair of scratches from road debris

    I called Benz Collision Center and they came down to $475 for my repair after initially quoting over $600. Price seems fair but wanted to know how you liked their work? Is it perfect in your opinion? Thanks.

    Minor dent + scratch occurred in camera blindspot.

    May I ask the name of the Tesla certified auto body shop in Glendale? I have a similar scratch on my rear hatch, maybe smaller. I've gotten quotes from $700 (they now claim they quoted me incorrectly--it's actually more) to $2400. Thanks.

    Touch up paint or take to shop?

    I also have MSM and have a tiny scratch down to the metal on my rear hatch from hitting the garage. I've taken it to at least 5 different body shops/detailers who all have said the entire hatch needs to be repainted and touch up paint will look like a 3rd grader did it. Estimated between...

    Tesla Paint Repair Kit - BEST Application Process Discovered!!

    What color is your car/touch up paint? Same thing happened with my Y hatch hitting the garage door. I'm torn between paying $700+ to get the tiny chip professionally fixed -- I hate the idea of them taking the entire rear apart to repaint the hatch, i.e., emblem, rear lights, etc., trying touch...

    Tesmanian Model Y spoiler matte black

    What color did you end up going with? I also have a midnight silver metallic Y and am wondering if the same color or contrasting matte black would look better. I think the matte black looks great with the white Y but not sure MSM since it's so similar in color. Thanks.

    Paint repair of scratches from road debris

    Do you know if he used touch up paint? All the body shops i've been to want to repaint the entire panel costing between $700-1500 for a tiny scrape--though it's deep.

    Paint repair of scratches from road debris

    The exact same thing happened to me in my parent's garage when I visited them. I have a nice gouge but only a few millimeters long. Tiny in fact. I've taken it now to 5 different body shops. 3 of which are Tesla certified. The estimates have ranged from $700-$1600. The last place I went to...
