    I have scuff marks (85D) on the door sills, and it is barely 1 month old. I noticed it upon delivery, but thought it was removable, but to my dismay I cannot remove it. It is too late now to have it replaced by Tesla. Any advice on how to remove the scuff marks?

    Same for me. Seems to be permanent as I tried many "things" to remove. I bought 2 additional sill pieces (right and left) for replacement. I'm going to have a clear film put on top of the metal "Tesla" plaques.

    Note: The metal sill plaques are part of of a longer plastic piece that cost $83.00 each. Minimal installation cost. In my mind, worth it. Good luck!

    I had mine covered in xpel very early on because I noticed them getting scuffed. It hid the minor scuffs and has kept away new ones. Very pleased and it didn't cost any extra.

    I noticed this also and covered it with the cabon fiber vinyl from rpmtesla.com. It's a shame that it scratches so easily

    I added aftermarket aluminum sills and wrapped them in expel, as the seller recommended. Well worth the effort.
