Tesla "Service Hell"

Got mine back yesterday, and it has 2 paint blemishes on the passenger door (where it seems the paint wasn't evenly applied, perhaps due to some anomaly on the door itself). Oh well. I'm having a partial Xpel film applied to the vehicle so will just have to put it out of sight and mind if the detailer can't work any magic. Finally got to drive it for the first time (including any EV) but not at highway speeds. I want to say it was anticlimactic after almost 5 weeks of delays due to damage.

I feel your pain.... We've owned our X for 20 days, 17 of which it has been in service center with no end in sight. My husband and I can barely talk about it anymore. We are too angry. I pretend that the car doesn't exist or that it is not ready for delivery and just keep driving my regular car.
Some details please. Is it undrivable?
