    While I agree that Tesla should release the shop and design manuals I was pleased to find out parts are not much of an issue. My car was involved in a minor collision (minor for the other car). Nothing structural but several cracked body parts. Tesla had the headlights, bumper, hood and a fender in stock. Since I has an order I also got new sill plates and wheel Center covers. Surprisingly a non issue and picked up all needed parts In about a week.

    That's great you were able to find the parts, it's one of the things that get me nervous about owning one.
