2022 Model S Plaid interior panel gap

Thanks so much for the info, much appreciated.
Quick update. I took my MS to the local SC to take care of some issues and pointed out the panel gap between the headliner and C-pillar. My service advisor guessed that it was a broken/missing clip but when I told him that I personally installed a replacement clip he suggested that the plastic chassis behind the pillar is slightly misaligned and needed to be set a couple of millimeters higher. It took them 30 minutes to address the problem and now there is not gap between the headliner and the pillar. Looks like it's a relatively easy and minor defect that can be addressed by the service center.

Good luck fixing your $140K purchase on your own. With no support from Tesla.
I was successfully able to fix it myself. Thanks for your "help".

I bet it feels good to get the brush off from the people you gave $140K to. Who couldn’t be bothered to add a .10 cent clip to your newly purchased vehicle.

But yeah, go ahead and take it out on someone from the internet who did not cause the problem and told what the solution would have to be.

This literally unfolded exactly as I said it would and you’re mad. Okay.
