From what I understand it costs about $10k to get a factory quality paint job. Not really very practical. You have disassemble a large portion of the car. If I get paint like OPs I'll definitely reject it. Most other stuff is easy to fix.How can this be said? Many posters on TMC have stated that Tesla's paint is (insert any number of negative comments previously posted). Tesla, especially with an 'improved' paint shop, paints vehicles at an astounding rate. There is no paint-specialist painting each car, making sure it's perfect. Add to this, 'paint' is not something for which Tesla is known to excel. Previous posts on this subject are not hard to find
A good "paint shop" could likely produce a better paint job than the stock paint job... even 'multi-coat red'. Making readers afraid that only the factory can paint your car will scare people unnecessarily. Case-in-point: Post #37
I know. My FWDs were repainted by an awesome paint shop, and they are flawlessly perfect.
I suppose it might be cheaper to get a Tesla factory quality paint job. haha.
