Mercedes Benz seeks the soul of a Tesla Model X

Benz rented a Tesla to tear down, it seems;
the story is from jalopnik: "...Daimler rented the Model X for seven weeks in July and August...The 100-kWh Model X belonged to Bavarian couple Mo­ni­ka Kind­lein and Man­fred van Rins­um, who own three Teslas they put up for rent—usually to wedding parties and other events directly as an additional source of income. The agency reached out to them to arrange the rental.
However, the couple didn’t know who rented out their Model X until it was returned heavily damaged, with a note in the glove box which read “you parked incorrectly” from the Mercedes-Benz Technology Center in Sindelfingen, Germany, near the marque’s Stuttgart corporate headquarters..."
From an Autoliterate point-of-view--gosh, they all look alike, don't they?
