Look at the retention clips on the aero covers see if they are uniform in how they are spread to grab the wheel. Also, potholes are not your friends, but the 18" wheels are better at handling than the larger wheel sets.
You can see the bolts without removing the front aero shield. You'll need a flashlight to illuminate the area. Look from behind the front wheel forward, you should see the rear bolt. Looking from the front of the wheel back you should see the front bolt.
Contactor opening, not an issue, the car will at times make noise like that and more. I suggest the next time you get a update, sit in the car the entire time it is updating. Lots of things going on, lights flashing, contactor opening, etc., normal.
The white paint should mostly come off with some paint solvent, if the retaining clips aren't broken just push the bumper back onto the clips.
After removing the paint, depending on how deep the scratches are, you might be able to buff it out with some polish.
2018 LR AWD,

Tech also put sealant on front upper control arms.
A question, I assume Tesla gets the compressor from a outside vendor, if there is a defect that causes failure of the compressor, does Tesla eat the recall or does the outside company pay for the recall or some portion?
It's hard to tell from your pictures, but I had mine replaced under warranty, 8/19. I didn't have any tint, so not exactly similar to your situation.
As @stopcrazypp informed, check for any appearance of an impact along the crack outside. If you have a impact on outside, warranty will likely be...
I have a Sept. '18 build, no issues yet, and still under warranty. If it happens under warranty I'll get Tesla to fix it, if not I think I might get the Mountain Pass Front Upper Control Arm kit. They are a little spendy, but camber adjustments and long term wear are the benefits.
I would suggest getting into the trunk close the lid, have someone with a strong flash light move along the lid seam. If you see light, that's where it could be infiltrating.
You could also check the lid bumpers, they can be screwed in or out. One or both could be set too high, causing the lid...
What you are experiencing might be the parking brake releasing in hold mode, under normal acceleration you don't feel it. Try coming off the line under the same conditions without hold mode on and hear/feel what happens.
Best recommendation is to test drive under your use conditions. If going by the numbers were that easy it would be...easy. :)
Example, there have been a small number of people who have found the drivers seat awful to unbearable. So, only your butt will be able to discern as well as your other...
Well, reading from the description, "Sealed spherical bearings will last the lifetime of the car".
The bearing is also on its own removable bracket, if you have to replace you don't have to remove the whole upper arm.
Yep, if I'm out of warranty, I would seriously look into those beauties. :D
