    Rear passenger inner door frame scratches.

    Does anyone happen to have these scratches on the inside of the rear door frames about 20cm above the latch? I've took it in to the service center twice to have it fixed but all they've done is just touch it up. Now I'm told it's not a warranty item because the demo cars have the same scratches...

    Quality Questions / Concerns

    I spoke with my delivery specialist today. I asked about panel gaps and delivery issues. He comforted and told me confidently that "Tesla has been doing way better this year with panel gaps and quality issues - especially in the Scottsdale location."

    Continuously upgrading paint protection

    I was pretty ignorant about PPF, ceramic, etc. I bought a black Model 3 and someone recommended I put ceramic on it so I did.

    Always outdoors, Bay Area care recommendations?

    Hi all, I'm a recent M3 owner and have probably one of the worst combos of all time: I'm OCD about paint quality, but I don't have a garage. The car is always outdoors, 50/50 out in the sun, and almost always near pollen. I'm still eager to keep the car in as top shape as I can so I'm curious...
