So I am a week in to owning my model 3 and loving it. I had the car parked in the sun today and I noticed a scratch in the paint on the front bumper, under the clear coat. If I didnt notice this at delivery, is it too late to do anything about it? Its not a huge deal for me, I'll prob ignore it TBH but it just irks me.

I also noticed a flaw in the paint on the passenger door today in the sun. It looks like the paint wasnt evenly distributed and there are dark lines in the paint.

See pictures. Am I crazy?

I can't tell what you're talking about in the picture. The car's too shiny - the reflections make it hard.

I find that a short video is much better at showing these kinds of issues. You move around a bit, and then you see what's a reflection and what's actually part of the finish.
