    I have noticed a puddle under my car. It is about 20 cm in diameter and appears to be water. I have seen it several times now. It is not related the weather or car wash. It appears between the front wheels. I have not been able to see any dripping. Car behaves normally. My best guess is condensation from the air conditioning unit.
    Any other guesses?

    It should be air conditioning. I have seen exactly the same on the S and the user guide talk about that.

    Tesla seems to have a lot more condensation compared to my other cars.

    I'll hazard a guess that it's not leaking oil. ;)

    Indeed a priori airco condensation. As @outie mentions, it's somehow more visible with a Tesla than with other cars... Have called Tesla Service twice when I saw it happening (better safe than sorry) so now I know it's nothing to worry about !

    I had a smaller blue puddle under the car. SC told me it was cracked window washer reservoir. They replaced it.

    Mine was leaking refrigerant fluid, it is clear but kind of slimy if you touch it. Tesla service resolved the issue
