    New Jersey Waiting Room

    Will do! I haven't researched any new quotes just yet but now that I have my question answered I will start soon. I may or may not stick with NJM because we are moving to GA next year so that will eventually negate my qualification to keep NJM.

    New Jersey Waiting Room

    Does anyone know if a VIN is required to gain financing (Tesla or Third-party) and insurance quotes in NJ? I have yet to undertake both of those efforts. I currently have NJM for car insurance and might switch if lower elsewhere and probably will use DCU or Picatinny CU to finance.

    Same here. I hope this is great news and stays with this timeframe. Does anyone know if a VIN is required to gain financing (Tesla or Third-party) and insurance quotes in NJ? I have yet to undertake both of those efforts. I currently have NJM for car insurance and might switch if lower...

    Delivery times of Tesla Model-Y (June-July orders)

    I also chose Cash when I ordered and will be financing in the end. What final payment is required to be paid immediately outside of that $100 order deposit? Or can we pay when we pickup the car? For example if I am putting $5000 down and financing the rest, would I pay that when the email...

    Thanks for the update LDCRS, I was starting to wonder what happened with the mats now that we're in October. I will await my promo email! -Dominick

    New Jersey Waiting Room

    It seems like a lot of us got bumped up aggressively, however I still have no VIN. I'm guesstimating a late-October delivery still. We're probably all still coming out of Fremont and not Austin, right? Updated Estimated Delivery: October 09 - October 25

    Current Delivery Times

    My EDD has moved aggressively from a late Oct to mid-Nov timeframe to now 10/9 - 10/25. No VIN assigned yet. I know this will change but uhm, oh boy, I better start getting my DCU loan set up lol.

    Considering Relo to NJ Area, looking for info

    Totally understandable! Thanks again - we are looking to relocate around the Alpharetta metro area. Home-wise we've seen similar $$$ to a NJ home but get a way bigger house and amenities... and as you said, a jump in quality of life. My firm has an office in Atlanta proper but I hope I never...

    Considering Relo to NJ Area, looking for info

    Bless you for coming up here; we're doing the opposite by moving to the SE (probably Georgia) next year. I live near Morristown - the town is undergoing a massive commercial and residential boom (at least in the main heart of the town; the outlying suburb area is steady). A couple of...

    Valet wheel damage

    Any advice on polite things to say to a Valet if you refuse to have them touch your car and want to self-park instead (where it looks feasible to do like a wedding venue or restaurant parking lot in the suburbs)? I too avoid them at all costs.

    Tesmanian dog seat cover for Tesla Model Y

    Bless your heart! I think all animals we adopt or rescue are lucky :) We rescued a dog and two cats and you can see the love and gratitude in their eyes when they look at you, they know they were saved. It makes me choke up just typing about it! 😇

    Airport 10%+ drain daily!

    Sort of related question, and this maybe a YMMV scenario based on where you live, but if an airport [parking] garage has charging ports to hook into near or in your parking spot, is it acceptable etiquette to leave the charger in the entire trip (e.g., you are away for 14 days)? While I haven't...

    Current Delivery Times

    Oh I'm well aware of other states' costs and thankful NJ did something right with no tax on EV purchases. Before one of the replies said it was for the Tire Tax, I thought it was some new moronic tax the state gov't was trying to recoup earnings on. As far as complaining goes... let's talk...

    Ahhhh yes, the glorious tire tax imposed by our past Governor Jim McGreedy... I mean McGreevey. :)
