Also concerning paint, My car has a large flaw on the
LR quarter pannel. about 18" ripple across the upper edge.
Because of the composite and the factory paint process,
Should I expect it to be replaced or repainted??

can anyone give me some insight on this?
I have been to 2 dealers and they intend to repaint the pannel.
I'm afraid it will not match properly and feel the pannel should
be replaced with a factory painted pannel.

this issue was noted at the time of delivery, and I expected they would fix it PROPERLY

Paint Update

The body shop was able to color sand and remove 90% The ripple or "sag" as they called it, without breaking the paint
surface. Great news since it did not require painting, and it's
not noticable unless I really study it, knowing where to look.

Interestingly, Before they worked on it, the service manager noticed wax residue left under the corner of the tail light
....I never waxed my car.
It was impossible that Factory QC had not seen this,
but more disappointing that they evidently tried to fix it,
and then let it go in that condition.:nono

Thanks for the previous input on this, Problem Solved.

(sorry for the double post)
