Fellow M3 owners, I took of my aero caps after driven about 1500 miles and noticed there are lots of scratches/smudges beneath where the rims of the underside of aero caps touches the alloy rim. Do any of you notice this issue? My car is currently getting some other paint/panel issues fixed at Tesla and hope they will address this issue, but just want to find out if this is a one off thing with my caps.

I would imagine there is going to be some wear on the rims just from taking caps off and on.

I was going to say the same. Tose look like spots where the caps are popped in so I would expect some wear and tear unless they have only been taken off a couple of times.

I have the same, just from having the Aeros on for the first 4 months. Finally took them off and just have to live with these small scratches.
