    Just noticed in the rear body of the car. There is a "crack"? In both side. Is it normal. Have to say it really looks not so good.

    We all know these little details / build quality are not Tesla's strongest points.

    I had this exact same crack on both sides of my p90dl X. Tesla fixes them both to my satisfaction. Apparently it is just cosmetic.

    If it is just w
    how do they fix them? Do new paint? Is it the welding trace? Or just paint crack? I would really hope vehicle over $100K could have a unibody. Overall I like my X, but tesla really need to learn some craftsmanship from MERCEDES.
