    Walking by my wife's Model S in the garage today, and noticed some damage that appeared to have happened recently. It looks like someone used the side camera chrome cover as a door stop for their car. I hope it left a larger dent in their door. I'm going to check with our service center about cost to replace the chrome trim, but was curious if anyone else has had the trim replaced. Is the camera + chrome trim a complete assembly, or is it possible to replace just the chrome?

    I am sure you can replaced it.

    Even if it was damaged, no point replacing the camera. It's not like it will ever be enabled.;)

    Chatted with the Service Center in Bellevue. The camera and chrome trim is all one piece, so no replacing just the dented chrome. With that said, I was pleasantly surprised that the cost wasn't too bad. ~$160 installed. Hopefully the replacement unit remains dent free.
