Weird tear near VIN window


Mar 7, 2019
Hi all, just took delivery of our Model Y yesterday. Car looked great and no major issues other than two doors requiring extra force to close. I have an appointment to get that adjusted.

There is a second issue that my OCD noticed. The little rectangle window cutout for the VIN, at the base of the windshield, appears torn or ripped. It is only noticeable on the inside and you can’t see it at all from outside. Does anyone else have it? At first I wanted SC to look at it during the service appointment but I also don’t want them to mess with that area and possibly damage the speaker cloth on a new car. It is a tight spot at the base of the windshield so I haven’t tried inspecting it further myself.
