I've read some threads about insurance nightmares with collision repairs. I'm awaiting delivery of our MS and talked to our insurer about what body shops they use. Long story short, the insurance company says they guarantee work at their "preferred shops" but no repair shop in our area does aluminum work except one that isn't on their list. I also called a tesla store and asked if a repair facility has to be "authorized" to do work on the car. The person I talked to said only if there is structural work involved otherwise it doesn't matter. Opinions? I'm just planning ahead.
