    Model 3 Highland Performance/Plaid Speculation [Car announced 04.23.2024]

    Yeah, my wife says she has to look every time she uses the turn signals. The turn signals work fine for me, but I has put little clear sticky dots on the horn, wipers and light-flash "buttons" so I can find them without looking.

    Yep, it's those "goofball" wheels that are holding me back from pulling the trigger on the M3P. They have zero practicality and would be expensive to swap out.

    Wait, don't physical buttons give more feedback than haptic buttons? When I test-drove the M3, I found the physical buttons to be much better than the haptic ones on my MX.

    I'm going to advocate for the original price so I can have my red car! :)

    Ok, here is my wish... lower the price of M3P to $52,990 with standard 19" rims/tires, then offer 20" rims/tires for $1,000 more. That way I can get my Red M3P with 19" wheels and get the $7,500 tax credit and everyone will be happy! Are you listening, Tesla?? :)

    Oh, how I wish he had. When I can order one in red and get the tax credit, those 20s with summer tires are coming right off.

    Yes, that would be nice. $300K if married and filing jointly.

    I would imagine most people who can afford a M3P are eligible.

    Too bad it costs $9,500 more! If you select red you are no longer eligible for the $7,500 tax credit.

    I contacted Tesla today and they said they are not doing demo drives for M3P yet. They said they have some to look at in Walnut Creek and San Jose.

    So, is FSD still transferrable?

    Dude, I hesitated two days and boom, red is out. It's the only color I like, so no M3 performance for me. :(

    Squeaky refresh falcon wing door trim panel

    We've taken to SC twice, but whatever they are doing, it doesn't resolve the squeak/rattle/rubbing issue. Gummi pfledge helps sometimes and sometimes not. It was such a quiet car when it was new, but now it's annoyingly noisy. :(

    Squeaky refresh falcon wing door trim panel

    Interestingly, it wasn't an issue on the old MX's, but the refresh models commonly have these FWD squeaks and rattles. I tried silicon spray to no avail so the next thing I am going to try is Gummi Pfledge on the seals and felt tape as directed in this thread. Stay tuned!

    So an F in cities and a D- everywhere else. Yep, that about sums it up :)

    Have you used the yoke in an emergency situation, like an unexpected slide in snowy conditions? It's.... yikes!!

    You are smarter than me... I foolishly gave both of my fob rings to Tesla with my 2016 MX trade-in not knowing they didn't provide them anymore. :confused: On the bright side, I don't really need a fob anymore with the phone app.

    For those that have taken delivery of your Model X, did your fobs come with the little loop thingy that lets you attach it to a key ring? Ours didn't come with one.

    Sounds risky, I would find a way to take a quick flight mid-trip to pick up your car... lest it is another year before you get it. My guess is they will give your car to someone else if you put it on hold.

    I used it for a while, but all it does is prompt you to press on the brake rather than swipe the screen... it doesn't really save a step and made the whole process more cumbersome for me. I turned it off.

    Ha, ha, mine did too! I was looking in the wrong place, I didn't know they moved it to the glovebox. In my 2018 Model 3, it's in the console.

    That's awesome, there are some great plug-ins out there. What kind of real-world range are you getting on EV-only?

    If that holds up, you will have a significantly shorter order-delivery timeframe than many on this thread!

    Hmm, mine is fresh out of the Fremont factory (May build date) and I don't think it has the swivel. I only had a few minutes with it before I dropped off to get PPF, so I may have missed it, but the button where it should be (as shown in the Twitter video) said, "inactive".

    Interesting, I also picked up yesterday and mine has no swivel screen. Is yours a Plaid? My delivery advisor said they were only going into Plaid editions? Also, wondering what your VIN is so we can determine when the swivel screens went into production.

    If it's any consolation, we drove our 2016 Model X 74,000 miles without a single rock chip in the windshield. And we drove in winter conditions to Tahoe and on gravel roads many times.

    I didn't know you could PPF the front windshield? The detailer I use always wants to tint my front windshield, but besides being illegal in CA, I want the best possible night vision upfront.

    Model X was delivered today after 459 days. The fit and finish was great. No swivel screen :( No photos yet, it's at the detailer getting full PPF. I updated it in the spreadsheet. :)

    I don't think it's inflation since I just found another installer who quoted me $5,000 instead of $9,000. Sometimes inflation is used as an excuse for extortion. We need to go no further than oil companies and their record profits for evidence of that :)
