    Perhaps this has been noticed, or discussed. I was looking at the pic of SN1. After wiping the drool off my screen, I thought I saw something unusual. Is there an unusual line on the mirrors or a difference in the gloss part way up on the back of the mirror?

    Thoughts?

    Please point an arrow to the exact line you're referring to

    Can't seem to figure out how to draw an arrow on my phone (away from a desktop). I'm referring to the dark line that is about 1/3 of the way from the top of the mirror.

    Honestly, the more I look at it the more I think it's just a reflection.

    Oh well, thought I saw something new.

    Looks like a bent reflection of a lamppost to me.

    Compare the various pictures of the same car in this thread:
    Pictures of production Model 3s
    I think only that one photo has the line you mentioned.
    Watch the video too. They get close to the mirror.
