    I've noticed a slight amount of ink wearing off my push button transmission buttons. Has anyone fixed this or even replaced the buttons? Curious what the options are. I like to have a like-new interior and this is a tiny niggle but couldn't hurt to ask!

    YES ...
    its just paint on the button tops... I had a worn one replaced then carefully applied clear self-adhesive to them all.
    (eg sellotape + a scalpel knife to cut around the circular edge of the button)

    SORTED !

    Several people have mentioned in various threads of having the buttons replaced under warranty for this reason. It happened to me before I knew of the risk. I need to cover them like Mark77a did.

    Is it a physical wear process, or something else? The P and R buttons look pretty worn on mine, but evenly so. You'd think R and D would be the most used, P and N almost never (at least the way I drive), so what's with P? N and D look about new.

    Has anyone got any info on replacement pricing from Tesla on these buttons? Thanks
