This is a very minor issue but I'll warn other MS owners and maybe the feedback is useful to Tesla.
Here's the situation: you have left the wipers on your parked MS and it has rained in the meantime. When you enter the car, the wipers power-on and clear the water from the windshield while your driver's door is still open, and the spray does a remarkable job of falling into the open door. Seems the curve of the windshield, the path of the wiper, and the door opening is perfectly designed for this :-) A regular car would not have the problem because the wipers don't have power until you turn the key / push the button, at which point your door is usually closed.
One could leave the door almost closed until the wipers do the first pass...or try to remember to turn off the wipers when parking...Tesla could fix this in software by not engaging the wipers until the brake is applied.
