I just got by car back from service a few hours ago. The latest in a long list of things that have broken in my car is the rear window defroster. Tesla determined that they needed to replace the rear window glass in my car car to fix it.
When I went to pick up my car the first thing I noticed is that the new glass installed does not match the rest of the glass in my car. When I gave the car to them the top and rear glass had sort of a bluish tint. Now the replaced glass has a much different black or dark grey color. Here are some pictures. Top glass is on the left and the rear glass is on the right:https://1drv.ms/u/s!AjL07ap25p51hSQqEJSH6_UkNTqLhttps://1drv.ms/u/s!AjL07ap25p51hSWESM-kmMKAzR5W
If you look closely you can see that even the non-transparent border areas of the glass are different shades on the two panels.
The service manager tells me that they have only one part number for this part, they have no control over what Tesla sends them, they are all like this now and I just need to live with it as there is nothing they can do.
I say it looks terrible and I don't want it like this. No joke as soon as I pulled into my driveway my neighbors who were way over on their properly called over to ask whether it was a new car and commented that they could see that the glass looked different. And this was at nighttime.
I asked the service manager if they can just put my old glass back on as I'd rather live with a non-working rear-window defroster than have it look like this but he said they can't.
I am not happy. I am especially not happy because this was my 6th service visit already for a total of more than 5 weeks in service and I'm already going to have to go in for service #7 because the seal around one of the glass panels is coming up and they need to replace it.
I did notice that a newer car in their showroom also had different tint on the top and back glass but the difference is not nearly as obvious as it is on my car because the top piece is darker so it matches the back piece much better.
My questions to all of you are: Would you accept this? Does any of your cars look like this? What do you think I should do?
Thanks in advance.
