    Major bummer, was cutoff on I10 freeway onramp as some idiot decided he wanted to be in the car pool lane and I had to slam on brakes and veer left resulting in running into the left curb of the onramp. Other car just kept going onto freeway but I had to stop and inspect. Bad scrape damage on both front and rear left rims, minor scrap on left front wheel well bumper (only damage is curb height so side panels spared!) and it appears my alignment is off as the steering wheel needs to be slightly left of center to steer straight.
    So should I go to authorized Tesla bodyshop in LA or go to a good tire/wheel shop or maybe both? Not going to use insurance and my car is leased (Grey S90D).
