Telsa Service Center for body repair or go somewhere else?


May 16, 2019
My Model got a couple of scratches on top of the trunk because a garage door feel on it. While it's an eyesore, it seems to be pretty surface-level. You could see the scratches in the pics below.

I was thinking of taking it to my Tesla Service Center because I need to get my HW3 upgrade anyway. Questions for the forum:
  • Do you know if the service centers handle paint scratch fixes like this?
  • Is it better to take my car to the service center or just go to a local body shop?
Any advice would be appreciated!
