Is it normal for the charge port door to stick out this much? I think it didn't use to stick out as much. But the left brake light was sticking out toward the back, so I got that fixed at a service center. I think they screwed in the left brake light further into the body, so probably as a result, the charge port door isn't flush w/its surrounding left brake light.

mine drags on the taillight (with squeaky plastic sounds each time). It was one of the items on my delivery issues list that is still waiting to be resolved.

Mine was like that - I showed them at the service center when I was in and they fixed it so it’s flush now. Yours isn’t so bad, but when you’re in getting something done just point it out and they should be able to adjust it.

Very common, mention it to Tesla and they can adjust it.

FYI: On an S or X you can adjust the flushness yourself, just turn the little rubber bumper. It's a screw!
