Here’s one for you to ponder…
So excited when I picked up my new fully loaded P85 on Friday March 21st. Driving the first few days was exhilarating, fun but also punctuated with spots of anxiety: getting used to it's length, width, height and under clearance, not wanting to scuff things up. I treated it like a baby it's first week. Last Friday the 28th, I set out on a three stop trip to get three things done for the car that I had been planning all week: 1) get the Tesla Service Center to install the carbon fiber spoiler that didn't make it onto the car originally (which they did quickly) 2) drive a mile over to a window tint company to leave the car to get windows tinted (radiant barrier films) and 3) walk directly next door to confirm with a protective film company the details of them taking possession of the S after the tinting was finished and storing it over the weekend to then start the protective film installation Monday am. The film was going to take 2-3 days.
I got an email this morning from the protective film Sales rep, and she informs me that a hail storm blew through the north side of my city and my car was not inside when it came through their area. Apparently I have some level of hail damage to the car, no specifics yet. It’s a week old! I’ve never had hail damage in my life and now I have it on a week old $125,000 car!
I don’t really know what to do since I couldn’t see the damage before I had to leave for California. I would have gone back out there to see it if the tinting company had called me when it happened Friday… but who knows why they didn't do that. It was the protective film company that actually emailed me and the rep actually hadn't even seen the damage as she wasn't working that day. The tinting guys apparently want to try to fix the damage, she stated? I really don't know what to say to that, but I guess I’d like someone qualified to guide what I should be doing-Tesla Service Tech???. I'm going to be on a navy ship for three days out of normal communication zones so I need to guide things by email when I get the chance. I haven't had a chance to call my insurance agent... I'm spinning... What would you do? I want it perfect again.
