found this on the delivery day with other issues. Filed a due bill. A tesla service advisor said they might repaint the whole fender. However, that may also rise the risk of being worse. Any idea? Positive or negative experience with tesla body shop?

I also got a curb rash on one of those 18inch aero wheels. Tesla offer $350 for a brand new one and another $50 labor. Some shop offer $125 to refresh it. What should I do with this?

They should be able to replace the fender if the repaint doesn’t come out to satisfaction. If it’s the actual fender metal to blame.

refinish the wheel.
