    Anyone have warping of the weather strip on their A pillars? TESLA is saying it's caused by third party tint. Maybe from them using a heat gun to shrink?

    I've had them replace this trim piece on both sides to alleviate wind noise I was hearing because of the deformed trim. It completely resolved the driver's side wind noise but they replaced the passenger side with one that looked exactly like yours. Still hear noise from the passenger side and am weary of having them replacing it again with another deformed piece, i might try again.

    Thanks for the info. Do you have a photo of them one they replaced that looks similar?
