One thing that really impresses about these cars is the door handles! I know its only a small part but the amount of engineering gone into making them is amazing!

Top drawer work as always Gordon.

We've seen some horrendous examples of these come through the door (as we've done a few) but they are taking steps to improve the condition of the cars before they leave the West Drayton depot anyway. I've had a couple of their guys come in and buy refinishing products from us.

However, due to the sheer volume of cars they have to prepare for collection they don't get any longer than approx 1 hour per car (inside and out) so they'll never be anywhere near perfect.

Fortunately for us they are a joy to work on, despite the sheer size of them and look amazing when completed to a level such as this.

A very good piece of work for sure. Well done @DefinedDetails.

In relation to the imperfections from the outset, as stated above, Tesla USA are looking at ways to improve. Being a new manufacturer, perfection takes time and it is safe to say Tesla are getting there. The Model S is a very unique car and should be appreciated for a lot more than its beautiful body!

EVERY "new" car, regardless of brand, has imperfections. Some less and others more..
I have worked on various high end new cars and I can assure anybody that this Tesla's imperfections is no different. 99% of new cars leave the dealers like this regardless of the badge.

Cracking work and a great turnaround. Shocking to see the damage already on the car.

Truly excellent work there.

Sadly, I've heard of several Tesla S cars with horrific paintwork, including seeing a few in their dealership in West Drayton (just round the corner from my house). Suggests that bodywork QA is not a high priority for them, which is sad on such a nice (and expensive) car.
