Picked up my white M3 and parked a block away from my home while my driveway was under construction. My neighbor didn't see a car parking across the street. He hit my car while slowly backing out from his driveway. The dent is above the rear wheel on the left side. What a luck! I took it to 4 different body shops. One said the dent is on the quarter panel, so he could just pull for $1200-1500 depends on the paint. All other three insisted it's on structural panel, so they had to take left side apart, take the battery out, seats out, and replace the panel, which cost around $15,000. It shocked all of us that a small dent cost this much! And if they take the car apart, can they put it together like a new car?
We finally chose European Paint and Body at West Palm Beach as they repair lots of Tesla.
Anybody had such dent problem?
And anybody repaired their Tesla at this store before?
