Hi All,

Took delivery of my M3 a couple days ago, noticed light scratches on the glass roof, the glass section that's above the rear seats. Its only noticeable under very specific lighting conditions. Took the M3 in to dealer and they couldn't find it (neither could i at that moment), but I swear I saw it (wife even noticed it).

Anyone else notice this on their M3?

Similar scratches can appear on the S too. Just don’t look at it under those light conditions. My new motto: expect scratches haha

Sometimes when I look at the roof while I am going 80 mph, I swear I can see Elon looking through the glass. Have taken to service twice but they claim they can’t see it. I suspect they are humoring me and not going above 80 when they look. Anyone else observe this? Should I be worried my privacy being invaded? Maybe I should stay under 80 mph

Are you sure you're not looking in the mirror ?

As long as Elon isn't harshing your mellow by telling you to put your pants back on, does it really matter?
