Natural Wood Trim-- Optional Tesla Extra

Well, in fairness, Tesla said that Models 3 and Y would be using “natural woods”. While we all assumed they meant the company would use that material for interior trim and textures, apparently they instead meant they’d be using it to shim together ill-fitting pieces.

The next time some Cultist posts about the astounding wonders of “the Octovalve HVAC system” I guess the retort is to post this picture of how Tesla components are assembled and held in place. Coming on the heels of the “nuts that hold the suspension together” not actually using captive hardware, or even Loctite, I’d guess build quality will be back on the table as fair game to debate.
