    I took delivery this past Saturday and took it to have tint and clear bra applied today, 9/11. The clear bra shop noticed two significant defects:

    1) A hair stuck in the clear coat - image1.jpg

    2) 10-15 wet sand scratches - image2.jpg and image3.jpg

    I notified my DS, the local service center, and submitted an issue in My Tesla. I expect this to be fully covered since it's defective workmanship and hopefully it will be resolved quickly.

    Having to have a brand new car's hood repainted really sucks.

    Hair and scratches? I'd check for blood too ;)

    There was a minor clear coat issue with my hatch. They took care of replacing it and provided a loaner while the hatch was being replaced.
