The car has been with Tesla for a week now and has just returned from their bodyshop back to the service centre. No arguments and was given a model s 90d for the week as a loaner.

I'll post what they did and how the job turned out once I collect the car.
How did your experience turn out, and did Tesla charge you? I’ve had a 2021 Model 3 for about 3 weeks now, and mine is starting to have the same issue. 😞

Hey, sorry I took so long to reply. Tesla fixed it with no issues under warranty. The repair was high quality and is not noticeable. The paint used feels different to what was there originally.
