I took my car in for paint protection, and while I was dropping it off, the detailer and I noticed some scratches on the chrome trim around the rear door, on the very point. We looked at the rest of the chrome and there are scratches in the exact same place on the opposite side of the car, just not as bad. He tried polishing the worst ones out, but just a little light polishing by hand went right through the chrome. I tried taking a picture. It was hard to capture it, but you can see some of the scratches and the circle of worn through chrome. He called someone he knows at one of the Tesla service centers and they said it sounded like someone prepping the car probably scratched it trying to remove the adhesive from the shipping wrap, and then thinned the chrome by trying to buff them out. I sent an email to the Chicago service center who prepped my car, asking if they could do something. Their response was that they cost $750 each, and would I like to purchase them. I guess it’s my own fault for not inspecting the car thoroughly at delivery. I know for a fact it happened before delivery because I’m terrified of the car because it cost so much, so I didn’t wash it for the two weeks I was waiting for my appointment, except for a touchless auto wash before I took it there because it was so covered in rain splattered dust. Closing the frunk was a sort of slow motion hand placing and leaning into it until it clicked because I was afraid of touching the paint as much as creasing the hood. I even started taking my ring off when I closed it because I was afraid it’d bump the paint. I know there is no possible way those scratches were caused after delivery because that part of the car was never touched. It probably wouldn’t have been so bad with just the scratches, but now there’s no chrome in about a quarter size circle that the rain etched water spots into today. I really can’t go spending the $750 for a new piece right now, so I guess I’ll just have the detailer finish the coating over top of the worn through area so it doesn’t corrode. I just wanted to share this story as a lesson to new buyers to make sure you thoroughly inspect your car at delivery.
