    Bottom Part of Rocker Panel Damaged But Hard To See - Should I Get This Repaired?

    I don't know what the heck I ran over in the parking lot today but I think it was a small curb for a loading zone that I didn't see. Damage isn't visible until you get down and look at it. Do I need to get this repaired? There is definitely a small dent to the panel down there (from looking...

    Is this damage justified for $4500?

    Unluckily I had a car accident with my 2022 model 3 and have been visiting several body shops recently. I didn't a full coverage insurance so I need to pay the repair myself. The damage includes fender, front lamps and front bumper. There is a minor deformation to the fender, front lamp cover...

    Model 3 collision damage - thoughts?

    Hey everyone.. got into an accident this morning. A woman hit me coming through an intersection after I stopped at a stop sign. Insurance should cover everything (I may or may not have to pay a deductible), but I'm concerned the damage is beyond repair. I scheduled some time with the local...

    Onderkant model 3 beschadigd door waterplas

    Afgelopen vrijdag door een grote waterplas gereden, welke ik niet meer kon ontwijken. Hierdoor heeft mijn Model 3 water geschept en is de bodemplaat gescheurd. Volgens mij ontbreekt ook de middelste bout, waardoor dit heeft kunnen gebeuren(?). Ik vermoed dat dit tijdens de vorige reparatie is...

    First day problems cost me a garage door and sheet metal damage

    Pulled my brand new Model X into the garage, shaking my head at the warning message already on the dashboard saying that "Autopilot cameras not available" but offering the tepid encouragement that they "Features may be restored on a later drive." Happy day one. I decided, after some...

    Freak Hail Storm!

    Ok, I've had my new Model Y for three days. Last evening around 8PM, just after it had gotten completely dark, a small freak storm rolled over that dumped golf ball size hail on my new car (and two others in the driveway). After the storm passed we examined the cars and noticed some damage on...

    Used car nightmare

    So I bought a used 2017 Tesla model S a month ago from Tesla and I have discovered some structural damage to the car that I wasn’t aware of before I bought it nor was disclosed by Tesla at the time of sale. I asked Tesla to show me a copy of the pre-sale inspection report to compare it with the...

    Case Study: Deer Strike in a MYP

    New here, so hello everyone. Sorry to open with this post, but I figure it might be useful for reference. I hit a deer late last night, maybe a 200# deer at ~40mph. Totally unavoidable; just ran in from the side of the road directly in front of the car. It's hair is still plastered to the car...

    Crazy 24 hour scratch and dent repair from autobody shop in Massachusetts

    I’ve been a long-time lurker on this forum and recently had my M3 hit while it was parked leaving a softball-sized dent and very deep scratches above the rear drive-side wheel-base (pic below). I had seen some posts on here about issues with autobody shops paint-matching, especially with the...

    Small Damage to Bumper - Turning in at end of Lease

    Car damaged by detailing guys.. how would you handle?

    Team, I'm wondering you would handle this? This looks repairable if I got the part myself, but then again I didn't damage it (the detailing guy that cleans cars at our office park did it).. He's agreed to fix it on his dime... So how would you handle it if you were me? 1. Book a service...

    Collision Damage & Tesla Service Center

    My lovely wife took my M3D out for the 3rd time ever, she likes it, so I was happy for both of us... Unfortunately she backed it into a stationary object. It needs a new rear bumper and a rear quarter panel. I don't know if anyone would repair the damage on the quarter panel or if that's a...

    Ouch but no ouch

    Sad day for me........but I am impressed more than ever with the safety engineering in my S. Ironically, was en route to the SC in freeway traffic when someone in a 1991 truck rear-ended me. I suspect he was going about 55 mph and I had slowed to a crawl. The good and the bad: My rear bumper...

    Dealing with body damage

    Well I got this surprise as I came from Sunday am breakfast today. It could not have been a car accident. This was vandalism and probably a statement about the car. 3000 miles. All was factory perfect. Film too. I don't know where to start dealing with this.
