    I noticed my RSS feed from Tesla has just displayed a list of official Body Repair Centers - not third party ones. Is this the first time we have seen exact locations named?


    The links take me to totally non-useful pages on the Tesla site: Tesla Body Repair Center - Villa Park etc Tesla etc.

    Three (3) day total turnaround, 25 hours (hours, not days or months) for the Tesla portion (and another 2 days for the rewrapping), and had a Tesla vehicle (a Model X) loaner the whole time their car was gone (I'm not sure if just during the 25 hour initial Tesla fix, or if that included the rewrap third party shop):​

    "I contacted Tesla and they stated the Tesla Body Repair Center's are only equipped for minor body repair while the 3rd party approved shops have the ability to get the parts and perform the work etc. This is counterintuitive but at least it helps make the decisions process easier for me."​
