    A couple weeks ago, I had a little accident unloading some bulky cargo through my rear-seat door and chipped the paint on the door frame. It's not visible when the door is closed, but it was deep enough that I thought it best to paint it to protect it from the elements, so I ordered a paint repair kit from Tesla. It arrived and was marked with my car's correct color ("Pearl White Multi-Coat, PPSW"); however, when I applied it today, it turned out to be silver (the discontinued light silver)!

    I'll either leave it as-is or get the correct color and re-apply it, but I thought it best to warn people of this potential pitfall. If this had been on a more visible area, I'd have been really annoyed!
