    Love the reflection in the rear panel!

    The headlights fog up with condensation. This problem goes back to P1 so the fact Tesla has not really beat this (way beyond #48) must mean that it is an expensive fix.

    long repair

    To repair each set of lights, you need to remove, place them in a box that you can control the water in the air, ....after its good and dry inside you have to attempt to seals the sides.

    These lights are sealed?
    Lights on my car are not and I don't get any fogging.

    The fogging headlamps is relatively common problem. It's known to Tesla, but seems like maybe it's a low priority for them now. I've seen a few kludgey fixes, but nothing I'd recommend.
