    Didn’t catch this at delivery yesterday but just noticed it while washing the car. Looks like the left rear wheel well liner should be attached somehow here but it’s not. The other side looks like it should. Anybody know what the deal is? Is this something easy to fix or maybe a mobile service call?

    why did tesla decide to use these fabric liners everywhere? was it a cheap solution to sound deadening? it's really a terrible solution.

    Its actually really good. Helps with sound control compared to hard plastic. (which is why almost every luxury car uses them)

    I have this same issue on my driver's side rear wheel well. Worried that water/snow/dirt Could build up behind the wheel well in the bumper. I wonder if this was the issue that had the bumpers falling off of new cars (I just took delivery of a white performance six days ago)
