    Washed my car for the 3rd time today and found two issues.

    1) on the driver front fender, the chrome peice that covers the side camera came partially off and bent when using a sponge over it. Won't stay on now fully. Hoping Tesla will replace that for free as that's a bunch of crap that it comes off just by going over it with a sponge for washing....

    2) on the top glass there seems to be an unknown issue with the glass. It's not bad enough to need replacement but I'm definitely going to be keeping an eye on it.

    No water leak. Just concerned that the glass is coming apart or having a defect. I'm more upset over the chrome peice coming up and bending during a wash

    How do you like the solid black so far?

    The gap between the glass panels look larger than mine. Could just be the camera though. What’s your VIN.

    Love the black. Hard to keep clean but really shines with the wax I put on.

    Its 39xxx...June build. The camera makes it look bigger than it is I think because it's not that noticeable just looking at it
