    My car has seen the first rain since I picked it up a month ago. I noticed today that there was a yellow residue dripping from the taillight. Is this something you all have experienced? Should I be worried that something was affected by the water?
    Any advice is appreciated. Fortunately I have an appointment with the service center tomorrow for a fit and finish issue.

    I've not had this problem and have washed my MS many times since delivery in early October. Good luck with your resolution. I'm sure folks here would love to know what the SC says about it. Good luck!

    Thanks all. They will probably have my car for a couple of days since the fit and finish issue required a trip to the body shop. I will post back when I learn more.

    I mentioned some rust spots that I found underneath the front baffles, so different side of the car than OP. Service found that I needed an updated bumper mount or something along those lines. They said Tesla changed over to the new mounts after VIN 30,000 or 40,000. Sorry for the vagueness, I wasn't paying that close attention when I talked with him.
