Sure it's not that bad, but it still cuts deep :-(

    Well, it was bound to happen. No matter how careful I try to be about parking my car, I knew it was only a matter of time before someone would put a ding in my car. This happened at a Whole Foods parking lot in Palm Beach. Tesla will be sending out a 3rd party to fix it, I've been told it should cost under $200.

    In the grand scheme of things, I'd of course rather deal with this than a fender bender, or worse :)

    That's going to be a great-looking combo. I ran into a Model S owner at the Plantation charger a few weeks ago. The S had black exterior/interior/rims, with red calipers and red Tesla logo- the owner called it the black widow. The car looked sinister with a dash of sexy.
