Hey guys,

I recently acquired my 2012 MS P85 Sig Edition which I absolutely love.

However, it is currently in the shop getting some work done, and the techs found the drivers and passenger mirror brackets are severely corroded and are saying they should be replaced. Has anyone found this happening to theirs?

Photos attached.

Thanks!

Looks like corrosion from dissimilar metals personally I think tesla should pay for this repair as its likely due to the lack of proper protection between these metals which is a design flaw.

Tesla needs to address this issue with a "campaign" to replace under warranty. Imagine one of these failing while driving. This is and easy fix if done correctly!
