    Yeah, the door handles changed somewhere between 2013 and 2015, I thought they changed again (my 2015 has the new and improved handles. So improved that in 2 years I've had 3 of them die)

    I gotcha.

    Original estimate from adjuster was $1,005

    Tesla approved body shop completed repairs for $4,422

    This doesn't include the Opticoat which I was assured I would get reimbursed for once I get a quote and submit my original receipt. I'm guessing that will come to about $500 for that one side of the car.

    The only part they had to replace was the reveal molding for about $650. No panels were replaced so the remaining cost was labor and paint materials.
