Has Tesla worked out the Pearl White color mismatch issues?


Nov 8, 2020

From what I understand, at least back in 2018 new owners were experiencing color mismatch issues on pearl white models, specifically the difference between body metal and plastic bumpers. It spawned a number of threads such as this one:

White Paint Bumper mismatch

It seems as if those complaints faded after a while. So my question is: was this problem addressed/corrected in more recent models, or is the issue stil popping up today? I've ordered a pearl white M3 AWD LR, but it would give me pause if the sleek Stormtrooper look gets spotty and dingy-looking after a few years. Any insight would be appreciated. Thanks.
