    So my Tesla received very minor damage from being bumped on the rear fender from the adjacent car in a sparking garage. Damage consisted of a small, half dollar sized paint scratch an nick on rear bumper. Took it to two Tesla approved body shops and the estimates were costly and repair time was not predicted to be quick. Found out about Tesla offering a pilot body repair shop in my area (Orlando). I asked about it locally and they had me take pictures of my damage and send to Tesla. Once approved, I was able to schedule my appointment and they were able to fix it in 2 days (!) at a fraction of the cost. I was very pleased with my body shop experience from Tesla and think this new service could be a game changer!

    I hope it is wildly successful and spreads quickly...

    It'a amazing unless you consider the reason why the other body shop bids were long and costly is because of Tesla's dysfunctional parts supply chain to body shops.

    That’s what makes this new service so noteworthy. I’ve owned my model S for a few years, I’ve had work done on, I get it. Tesla seems to understand as well and based upon my sample size of 1 it is going to change your opinion once it rolls out in force. I’ve owned all the car brands and come on, I took it in and two days later it was fixed perfectly for literally a fraction of the cost. I’m certainly not a fanboy but this was really impressive. People are always quick to jump on the service team if things go bad. They are on to something really good here.
