    Hi everyone. Prior to purchase, I'd heard people say Tesla have lots of rattles so I was prepared before buying that I was likely to have some. To my surprise, with the radio off (or low volume), my X is great. No NVH or rattles. Crank the sub a bit and it's a different story. Have any of you removed panels and added dynomat or other sound deadening materials? I feel like it's a pretty small nit-pick and not worth the service center's time to ask them about it and honestly, if the music is loud enough, I don't hear them but I'm curious of your experience.

    I have not had that experience, but the service center would be happy to address it for you. They won't act like they are bothered. They are really trying to take care of you.

    I encourage you to let them.

    I've had a subwoofer panel rattle for about a month. My service center is replacing the panel for me tomorrow. I'm not sure if it is a new & improved panel or not, but hopefully it will fix my rattle. I only hear it during certain bass notes, but it is definitely annoying. My service center has fixed every nit-picky thing that I've asked them to fix, so I encourage you to do the same. I can't complain one bit - the customer service here in Honolulu is outstanding.

    My whole P100D interior rattles, I can't stand to listen to music with any bass in it nor drive on a road that's milled (before they repave). They owe a few other things post delivery so I'm planning on taking care of this at same time.. Build quality, at least on rattles, seems insanely unsatisfactory.
