    Hello, I'm a new Korean User!

    I will likely be moving from the US to Korea in a few months (job related, non-military). I will be selling my US Tesla but am interested in buying one in Korea. How is the charging situation though? Can you set up a HPWC at an apartment complex? I'd rather not have to go to superchargers /...

    Chrome delete place in Seattle

    Kyler should be able to take care of that. I didn't get chrome delete but he does a lot of wrapping, etc. and can do stuff like this too. Kyler's Auto Detail in Kent. Tell him that Dan Paik sent you and he'll take care of you. His contact info is at: Kylers Auto Detail

    Ceramic coating for Tesla 3 in Redmond, Bellevue, or Kirkland

    I go to Kyler's Auto Detail in Kent, WA for my ppf and ceramic coating. He does a great job and does a lot of cleaning and detailing for Bellevue Tesla. I don't have any affiliation with them or anything but have taken my Model X there and had a few friends go there as well. I did not get my...

    Advisor won't add referral code for P3D (originally order 3D)

    My friend initially placed an order for a AWD 3. A few weeks later, he changed his order to a P3D and gave them my referral code for free unlimited supercharging. However, he said that his advisor will not add the referral code because it had to have been there when the order the placed. But...

    Model 3 Xpel wrap in WA

    I like Kyler's Auto Detail in Kent for wrap, ceramic coating, etc. Let him know that Dan (w/ the Model X) sent you and he'll give you a pretty good price.

    How frequent is everyone seeing 3s in the Seattle area?

    I see 5-10 per day but I work in tech where there are many Tesla owners (the majority of electric vehicles where I work).

    12v cigarette lighter adapter plugged in for days?

    Summer is coming and this is the first summer with my X so it's camping season. I recently got a thermoelectric cooler...it's basically like an ice box but you plug it into your 12v plug in the trunk and it will keep the cooler pretty cool for you. Less bulky than my ice box since the X trunk...

    free supercharging transfer cutoff?

    I tried to do some searches but it's confusing because information seemed to change a lot over time. I purchased an inventory X in oct 2017. When I check my car in tesla.com it says that free supercharging will not transfer if i sell the car. But in articles like this: Tesla's Free Lifetime...

    Oregon Coast Vacation Rental with HPWC

    I'm interested in booking the place for a few days this summer. The Tesla HPWC is a great perk. However, I don't really like talking on the phone so I'm hoping this will come online at some point so that I can just see prices and book online without having to talk to someone. RVD.

    7 seater with 3 car seats in middle row

    In my case, about 50% of the time I am in the X I have 7 people, about 25% I have 6 people and the last 25% is <6 people so I rarely have the 3rd row down for extra storage. Otherwise having 3 kids in the middle might work for us too.

    7 seater with 3 car seats in middle row

    I have the newer 7 seat bench 2nd row. I also have 3 kids (2 of them in car seats - both forward facing). If you have an old 7 seater, this is not an issue. I like the new 7 seaters because all of the seats fold down for a lot of trunk space. I have struggled with this issue a lot. The 2nd...

    WA State EV Sales Tax Exemption Updated

    Most of the chatter I hear in DC is that Trump plans to extend the federal 7500 tax credit because he doesn't want American auto manufacturers (Tesla, GM) to lose ground against the Japanese. As for a second term, as James Carville liked to say, it will depend mostly on the economy and how it's...

    Tow package psych

    Interestingly enough, I had a problem show up in my seats so I took the car to the service center here in Bellevue, WA. They said that the tow package parts are here so they installed the tow hitch for me. Literally the next morning I left for my trip to CA but didn't have enough time to...

    WA State EV Sales Tax Exemption Updated

    On a slightly related note, I ended up not ordering my Model 3 so I'm just holding onto my reservation. I picked up a Kia Soul EV last week on a 3 year lease. Total cost of ownership over 3 years is only $9k so I'm guessing that I'll try to get a Model 3 at that time (standard range + EAP for...
