    I discover this morning this mark on the passenger door.
    Front view: IMG_3175.JPG
    Upper View: IMG_3176.JPG

    It does seem like a mark over the paint.
    No bump, no deep scratch.

    Should I bring the car to a detailer or to Tesla SC?
    What's your opinion?

    Thank you in advance.

    Tesla SC doesn't do this work in house and they send it out to one of their own authorized shops. So, if you're paying for it either way, I would just take it directly to your paint shop (or ask Tesla for their recommended shop).

    Get a detail and apply a Ceramic Coating ASAP. I wrote a post on the swirls people are seeing in their paint on the MS forum.

    Are swirls an issue on white cars as well? (Obviously they happen, but can you see them in the sun?)

    Never Tesla, always a detailer.

    Tesla detailed my car for $175 and fixed my curb rash for $150
