    2021 Model 3 Steering Column Side to Side Movement

    Having the same issue on my M3 2021 (delivered on Dec 27 2021) - excessive side to side movement and a knocking sensation when making sharp turns. It took me multiple attempts and even a service center change for Tesla to acknowledge this as an abnormal issue and now my new SC has ordered the a...

    Buying a used FSD car from Tesla, first hand experience

    your experience makes me regret a little less that I didn't buy a used Tesla (I bought a new one and had a bunch of other issues). But it adds to my "WTF, you are seriously trying to make a fool of your customers and have no respect for them" notion.

    Deep Blue Metallic Help

    when it's dark/cloudy it definitely looks more like a navy blue. In really bright light (sun or artificial) it looks a bit like a mix of royal and navy. I just took delivery of a white/white 2021 Model 3 and honestly in hindsight I feel like I should've gotten blue/white. The blue is extremely...

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    The 15 miles thing is just a placeholder for the new cars afaik. Mine said this as well, but in reality the car only had 12 miles or so.

    Best wheel for handling on M3 2021 LR (18 vs 19" vs 19" aftermarket)

    should I maybe just get the Pilot Sport 4S (summer)? Note I'm in Northern California. While there's the occasional trip to Tahoe skiing, this happens just once a year or so and in which case we just use my friends' car instead. Bit worried about the range hit with the Pilot Sport All Seasons...

    Best wheel for handling on M3 2021 LR (18 vs 19" vs 19" aftermarket)

    I have the OEM 18" Michelin MXM4s. The other vehicle I drove back-to-back had the OEM 19"s (Conti ProContact I suppose?). Thanks for all your thoughts. I gotta say I'm surprised that tires can make such a difference in steering feel even at mild speeds, but I guess that means I need to upgrade...

    Best wheel for handling on M3 2021 LR (18 vs 19" vs 19" aftermarket)

    Hey folks, so I got my 2021 M3 LR 18" a few days ago, unfortunately with a ton of quality issues (Master thread: Delivery issues (panel gaps, delivery delays / issues / problems etc)). One thing that also bothers me a bit is that the handling or steering specifically isn't really to my liking...

    Delivery / Service Issues (panel gaps, delivery delays / issues / Service problems etc)

    Many of us, incl. me would probably better been off with rejecting our cars at delivery, but I believe there is a psychological component and unfamiliarity with the process consequences of rejecting a car for most first time tesla buyers. Generally speaking, while this is not my first car, it...

    Delivery / Service Issues (panel gaps, delivery delays / issues / Service problems etc)

    I was wondering how you'd reject delivery at this point, but just realized you are in UK which still has the 7-day return policy, right?

    Delivery / Service Issues (panel gaps, delivery delays / issues / Service problems etc)

    part 2 video of my tesla journey is out: . Learned a lot about youtube authoring yesterday lol.

    Delivery / Service Issues (panel gaps, delivery delays / issues / Service problems etc)

    quick update from my side: I actually went back to the fremont factory showroom to look again on whether I just got "unlucky" or if this is a persistent issue. And honestly none of the cars was perfect. I went from car to car (10-15 cars) and just found again and again the same issues that...

    Delivery / Service Issues (panel gaps, delivery delays / issues / Service problems etc)

    I initially made an appointment for just the door issue which was for mobile service on Dec 30. Then I added a bunch of more issues and it force-switched me from a mobile to a SC appointment on Jan 6. I then regularly checked (via the app) if there is an earlier time and eventually was able to...

    Delivery / Service Issues (panel gaps, delivery delays / issues / Service problems etc)

    Update: had mobile service come out to me today. The main intention of the service was to document (pics etc) all the issues ahead of my upcoming SC appointment, so that they can schedule appropriate time and order parts if necessary. The mobile service fixed the door closing issue on the spot...

    Delivery / Service Issues (panel gaps, delivery delays / issues / Service problems etc)

    OP of the quality issue video here: Why Good question. In hindsight I definately should've. The reason why I didn't do it that day were multi-fold: - I didn't have a car for weeks (previously had a BMW lease which I had to returned) and really were in need of one - a lot of cars at the...
