Strange "hairs" on tesla

I've had these strange hairs appear in the body panel between the passenger side rear door and the trunk.

Possibly alien life forms studying the most advanced car on this planet.

Sorry about that, I have no idea who's poodle ran wild in the production line.

I've had the same thing occur, after a hand wash and detail. I think it's part of one of the pads or towels that the detailer uses.

Its "Lint". Remove it and move on!

Interesting... When did you take delivery? Most Teslas aren't old enough yet, but yours may be the first to have reached puberty.

Navel emissions caused by too much squealing.

Its not lint, its plastic and stuck in the body....

You haven't been through any automated car washes by any chance?

danej | August 20, 2013

Seriously, any conclusions here? I've got the same thing.

Have something similar around the inside edges of the sunroof. It is somewhat like fiberglass. Hard and very sharp. Will just remove it with scissors...

I just noticed some on the inside edges of the sunroof as well. +1 Andrewer

Folks, could it be from a polishing wheel used by our detail shops?

This is almost like a multi-billionaire who doesn't know how to shop at a grocery store or something. How can these little fuzzies, either from car wash towels or summer plant life be something you've never seen before, lol?
