    Has anyone ever had screws from the underbody fall out? My wife found these screws after I pulled out of the garage on two separate occasions. Are they from my car?

    Are those 10mm heads? If so, there are plenty of those under the car.

    Weird story. I send the pictures to Tesla and the San Diego store calls me and says they are from the underbody of the car.

    I tell them that I live closer to Costa Mesa now and they tell me to explain the problem to them. Costa Mesa tells me that they have never seen that screw with the B on it, but I can bring it in to have a quick check.

    I go inspect the garage again and I see my garage is missing two screws and they have Bs on them. The missing screws and the fact they did not have speck of dirt makes me confident they are from my garage that was just replaced. Damn "summon" - story for a different day. Haha.
