    SR Y paper says 2 motors?

    Guessing a lazy person who forgot to change the text. No way they are putting a second motor in the SR.

    FYI - grid alternatives will pay you back for your home charger that is already installed. Doubtful the labor part can be reimbursed, but they will pay you for the charger. I just submitted my Tesla wall connector bill and they are cutting me a check for 538.36 I will never use the 1000 dollar...

    The Anti-Ceramic coating thread

    Wash my car once a month. Don’t really understand the coating. Every other car I have owned -I have just lived with the paint. Got the same amount back when I traded it in. No one asked me about ceramic coatings when I traded them in. Last car I got back almost the exact sticker price back after...

    Clean Vehicle Assistance Program and Tesla

    From someone who has gone through it. For everyone worrying about having them add the grant in way before you take delivery - so it shows up in your acct. with a 5k deduction. Follow these steps. 1. Get approved and get the letter. 2. Order the car - factor in the 5k grant on your down...

    Clean Vehicle Assistance Program and Tesla

    FYI - 2 months after picking up MY and Tesla still hasn’t sent any proof purchase to CVAP. CVAP is writing me telling me my grant is about to expire and I inform them I purchased the car and they applied the grant. They tell me I should write Tesla to have them send proof. How backwards is it...

    Think you are referring to the clean energy rebate. Which appears to not have update their model years. So they might not be accepting applications. It requires you buy the car and get the rebate. CVAP is a grant that needs approval before you get a car and applies to purchase price of any EV...

    I think it has to be the Tesla wall connector. They are giving you 2k to cover your cost. More then enough to pay for a wall connector and the wiring if you are going less then 50’. If you are renting you can always take the wall connector with you after and leave a “pigtail” in a box on the...

    Weird update on CVAP grant - Took delivery of a model Y last month and you get another grant for 2k to install a level 2 charger at your house. They instruct you to wait 30 days from delivery to contact the charger people. So 30 days pass and I write the Ev charger grant people, they say they...

    Frunk delivered dented

    I fear having to open the MY frunk closing it is an adventure in delicate pressure. I have had to reopen and close as it doesn’t suck down. My M3 is much stiffer and seems normal to close.

    Need to pay a new order fee if rejected previous one?

    To get my model 3 - I paid 3 separate order fees. First original order, second they lowered the price of the car, but would not adjust. Then third I found a car in stock same color but with upgraded wheels and they wouldn’t let me transfer order with aero wheels. It was wait another 3 weeks or...

    California waiting room Q3

    Tesla need to work on the online delivery notification system backend after this quarter. I have never been so exhausted. Fix this and you could push out a 1/4 more cars to the people who want them. I went to bed Sunday(after being on the phone with them till 11pm) thinking the car would...

    California waiting room Q3

    I paid. I was about to rent a car and then drive up and then have to drop the rental car off/get gas then uber from the san jose rental car to tesla. It ended up near the same price to do a straight shot. Also I never have to go to a gas station again.
