Window wells retaining water after wash?

    I've had my car detailed twice and through an automated car wash twice. After each of these, I've noticed water streaks on each window the next day after I roll down the window and roll them back up. In all my previous cars, the rubber at the base of the window tended to squeegee away the water as the glass rolls down. With the Tesla, it seems the water actually gets trapped inside the rubber.

    I'm wondering if everyone else is experiencing this?

    Yep. It seems to be the felt lining they used holds water for a while. No easy solution that I can see. Annoying to have to wipe the base of the glas every time you open a door.
