Wheel Centre Corrosion

My S 90D was new in February of this year and has covered 12,000 miles here in the U.K.
The plastic wheel centres now look like this;


Has anyone else experienced this sort of corrosion and do you think that Tesla should be replacing the centres free of charge?

They were corroded like that on my car when I got it as a CPO, though at that point my car was much older than yours. I didn't notice for a while, but Tesla replaced them as goodwill at my first SC appointment.

Even if they won't cover them under warranty, I think they may be the most reasonably priced Tesla part. Something like $20 for four new ones.
