Some background: Configured 4/6.... VIN 4/11... 158XX
So I'm at the 1 yard line after all the delays/train breaking down/etc, and finally my vehicle arrived in MA yesterday (5 weeks after it left Fremont...don't ask). Yesterday I got the call saying the car arrived at Delivery Center but did NOT pass inspection and was being sent to a body shop for a "paint" issue.
I went in to the delivery center today, and they confirmed it was the famous "Pearl White Bumper Mismatch". I guess this is now a thing, and Tesla does NOT want these bumper color mismatch clown cars driving around on the roads, so they will not deliver them anymore (It's interesting how somehow it passes inspection at factory though).
So basically you have two options: 1.) Postpone delivery until the body work is done. 2.) Get another VIN.
I chose option 1, and apparently the body work will be done in 1 week or less.
Whats another week after 2 Years and 2 months?
