Here’s a couple of examples on my car, which I believe is what he’s referring to

Pictures of a Model 3 in Quebec after this winter. Tire spray debris not only blasted through the paint on the front lower rocker but also the rubberized protective coating under the paint. I have the minimal California guards on the way. May only install the front ones. From Eric in Quebec. English website translation coming:

You should have you Service Center look at this. Try to push for them to help you fix the issue --- either directly with Tesla, or Tesla pay a body shop fix.

If Tesla wont help you -- you might need to file a claim with your insurance company and pay our decuctable to have it fixed at a body shop.
Hi Guys and regards from Finland. I am one of the owners ( model 3 performance ) We have a major problem going on with the Tesla Model 3 painting. On 2000 km / 1 month old model 3 already my paint is gone on skirts, body, right door to 25 cm etc.

I have at least 10 friends who has same problems on their m3.

More pictures and video of my model 3 are below. on google drive links:

What we done already:

1. Make a claim to Tesla Finland to repair these.
2. They have denied and try to say it is not part of warranty. YEP really!

THIS IS DEFECT in quality of Tesla products and we can't stand it. I have paid over 94.000 $ for the M3p vehicle in finland....

What do you think about these?
