    GEICO Insurance

    I’ve been with Gieco for the past six years. 1 uninsured motorist claim (hit and run, dash cam footage proved at fault and also a police complaint) and one glass repair. 2 other accidents claimed through the other parties insurance and also no tickets. They increased my premium from...

    Red - paint quality issues

    I’ve had a lot of paint issues on mine too. Mainly buffing issues from the service center. There is a spot on the passengers side mirror where there is paint missing but it’s looking unlikely that they will fix it. Response from the Tesla team so far has been “sucks that you didn’t spot it”...

    Delivery Experience

    Thanks for the information. I’ve reached out to him. Hopefully that moves it forward.

    ISA Communications / Scheduled Deliveries

    Think it’s Nevada and Chicago for the most part.

    Delivery Experience

    ISA’s excuse for the latest setback (payment page reverting to the preorder display) is that it’s an IT issue affecting 100’s of people. That helps me how? I said I can initiate the transfer from my bank if they give me the final amount (how does it take 2 weeks to do this?) and Tesla wiring...

    Delivery Experience

    While I agree the legislature is archaic and the added complications as well as inability to claim the tax credit are unnecessary at this point I’m planning on voting against Tesla just out of spite. Childish, I know, but I’m extremely mad right now .

    Delivery Experience

    Tired calling the help line, but no luck getting anyone. “High call volume please call back later”. ISA still useless. In response to my email he says they are waiting for final payment to ship, which I know. Clearly his reading comprehension is a bit low because for that was the fifth...

    Delivery Experience

    Yeah that’s what I plan on doing (TDA instead of CarMax). I’m just going to pay cash to settle it now and then replenish my bank account later. Need the current car to be able to go to work so I can’t sell till I take delivery. I mainly needed the TM3 so I could PPF wrap it as I had a friend...

    OMG! My roof window has a crack!

    $1500 for just the front windshield!? That’s outrageous. Just got an OEM replacement on my Mustang and that’s was $457 out the door.

    Delivery Experience

    Wow a lot of people going through the same thing it seems. On one end I hate dealerships because of constant lying and blatant money grabbing atempts but on the other, Tesla really needs to step their game up if their model is to be sustainable. No car after paying in full 2.5 weeks later is...

    Delivery Experience

    I’m going to try and call the helpline when they open tomorrow. Hopefully I get some movement. Are the ISA’s based in Nevada? That’s the number mine has listed but to date he has never answered the phone. Communicating by email makes something that should be a 5 minute communication into a...

    Delivery Experience

    My delivery experience has been horrible so far. My ISA has been unresponsive. Tesla’s trade in offer is $1500 below CarMax and they are refusing to match. I’ll sell directly but they’ve taken a week to communicate that and now I’ll have to get it reappraised. I’ve asked multiple times...

    PPF Model 3 dimensions request.

    I went ahead and got a 60” x 18’ roll of Hexis BodyFence because it was cheap. I figure that way I can attempt an install and not be so disappointed if it doesn’t go well. Plan to do the hood, fenders, front bumper and a door (driver) if enough is left. Depending on how that goes I’ll buy...

    Premium Connectivity Package and Order Date

    Mines on order right now and I expect to complete the payment this Tuesday. Delivery will be in July however. Am I correct in interpreting this to mean I will have the premium version included for life? Or do they go by delivery date?

    PPF Model 3 dimensions request.

    Looking to buy a bulk roll of PPF to cover my hood, front bumper, front quarter panels and front doors. Anyone kind enough to measure their 3 and give me the dimensions. I looked all over and couldn’t find much but based on the overall dimensions it looks like I’ll need about 20’.
