    Model S Plaid/LR 2021 Refresh Issues Thread

    @DogStar1 FYI yours is not folded over properly as I was mentioning. Not sure if the machine wasn't working for early deliveries

    Model S Plaid/LR 2021 Refresh Issues Thread

    Can someone post a photo of the lower rearmost corner of their front doors? I saw a LR at cars and coffee and the door skin metal wasn't fully folded over on the corners...

    Model S Plaid/LR 2021 Refresh Issues Thread

    Issues I had on delivery: - GPS module not showing correct car location (didn't realize until I drove off and then couldn't use nav/fsd) - Left rear tail light fog/moisture - Panel gaps (hatch and PS rear door) All noted and correct by Tesla via a service appointment. One other bug I noticed...

    M3P to Plaid - some thoughts

    @keith58 I have a model 3 performance and took delivery of my Plaid in June so I've had a fair amount of time with it. I'll share some thoughts– - In 'sport mode' the steering is more direct and heavier feeling in the Model 3 Performance than the Plaid. This may be largely contributed by the...

    Dragy times for Plaid and LR

    Plaids should run even quicker at high elevation compared sea level due to thinner air density... opposite of gas cars that need the extra air density at sea level to run fast

    Questions for owners of first deliveries of refreshed Model S

    Mysteriously lighting one Plaid on fire and hyping it up seems like a great stunt for another vehicle manufacturer who wants to capitalize on FUD and gain marketshare... IE Ford, VW, Lucid, etc... There wasn’t much hype about the rash of BMW fires...

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    Not sure if someone mentioned this but Tesla doesn't offer the option to buy at the end of the lease

    My understanding is they hold them, not sure why?

    Plaid+ reservation holders: what is Tesla telling you?

    I heard they are refunding all the plaid+ deposits ($1000) in a separate transaction. When converting to Plaid the deposit is only $100. So the $1000 order fee is to compensate for the difference

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    One thing to note on deliveries– Tesla usually times their shipments so they arrive to both east and west coast at the same time. So beyond production batches (color, trim, etc), where you're located will impact the perceived delivery. I know West Coast/California cars just sit at Tesla until...

    Plaid owners – what model year is on your title?

    Plaid owners, which model year is on your title, 2021 or 2022? @omarsultan I've seen some advertise it as a "2021.5"

    Plaid+ reservation holders: what is Tesla telling you?

    Be careful changing your order, I've read previous account of SAs that can't change it to the previous price if you've reconfigured your car at all. They make it sound like a one way street

    Elon tweet: Tesla will honor $10k discount for Plaid+ reservation holders

    I believe once the car is ready you can delay delivery up to 6 months and then they'll cancel it and keep your deposit
  16. C

    Plaid+ reservation holders: what is Tesla telling you?

    Awesome guys, same here! One more thing to make sure your SA changes is the increased cost of white interior. Your MVOA should have the older $1500 price locked in. My updated res as of today shows $10k FSD and $2k White interior fee

    Awesome 2019 Model 3 Performance - only 13k miles, grey/black SF Bay - Incoming PLAID

    Hi guys, I have a PLAID incoming so selling my m3p before delivery. I'm in the SF Bay Area. 2019 Model 3 Performance (stealth), grey/black, original 19s, only 13k miles, excellent condition! No FSD. Comes with OEM roof rack, rubber mats, and wireless charger from Tesla. Also has an OEM Tesla...

    21” arachnid or 19” base

    Does anyone have any details/speculation on the new wheels coming out later this year for the Plaid to reach 200mph?

    Plaid owners - how much for insurance?

    Just like the title says, @omarsultan and others, is the insurance the same as a normal Model S or P100D?

    Plaid+ reservation holders: what is Tesla telling you?

    Totally agree, that's what feels most fair– honor the original $119k price and $8k FSD, and throw in a free bottle of Tesla tequila for our troubles. I spoke with a lot of other angry Plaid+ reservation holders at the event we're not alone, several of them said that's how Tesla could make it...

    Plaid+ reservation holders: what is Tesla telling you?

    I spoke with Tesla again and it seems as if they are waiting until after the end of the quarter (6-30-21) to take care of this. Maybe they want to show all those $1000 deposits on their books?

    Call from Tesla asking me to cancel Plaid+ and take a Plaid

    Argue with him for the rest of us! I read on here there will be a meeting on Tuesday that will help determine how to handle our situation so the louder we can be between now and then, the better!

    Plaid+ orders, post here if you're upset

    Just tell them that you're a loyal customer and that you want to escalate. It's crazy how many enthusiasts with a long purchase history like @BrianKH and @rmealey are having to deal with this nonsense. I purchased my Model 3 Performance after I ordered the Plaid in September with the intention...

    Plaid+ reservation holders: what is Tesla telling you?

    @MarcG let us know what you come up with, I'm in the Bay Area too. Would you consider switching your Plaid+ reservation and paying the increased price for the Plaid if they threw in the FSD for free?
  26. C

    Call from Tesla asking me to cancel Plaid+ and take a Plaid

    One other option at the new higher price would be for them to offer to activate FSD for free since it's roughly the same cost as the price increase and costs them nothing to turn on

    Plaid+ orders, post here if you're upset

    How many of you are upset about our situation? I placed my Plaid order with $1000 deposit on Battery Day (Sept 22, 2020), the minute Elon said it was available to order. There was no Plaid+ at the time. Later they created a Plaid+, and automatically converted my reservation to a Plaid+. Now...

    Plaid+ reservation holders: what is Tesla telling you?

    Any updates on this? I placed my Plaid+ order on Sept 22, the second he said it was available to order, and now I'm floating in the ether... I'm bummed because I went to the event last night and saw all the other first 25 guys picking up their Plaids and getting tequila bottles for free. At...

    Plaid+ reservation holders: what is Tesla telling you?

    My Tesla guy said the Plaid+ is not officially cancelled and is still on the website... and that the "best" way to convert is to cancel reservation on Plaid+ and start a new order for a Plaid with non-refundable $100

    Call from Tesla asking me to cancel Plaid+ and take a Plaid

    The Plaid+ is not officially cancelled and is still able to be ordered via the website...

    Call from Tesla asking me to cancel Plaid+ and take a Plaid

    This is also my suspicion, price increases as evidence. FSD will probably be $15k by then

    Call from Tesla asking me to cancel Plaid+ and take a Plaid

    Does anyone know how it works with our $1k deposits? Can we roll them into the normal Plaid?

    Sleeping in the car for 2 weeks?

    Cross-country roadtrips with lots of camping at national/state parks– not's not always easy or convenient to find rooms/hotels, and it's quite comfortable if you get the Tesla setup right inside. Also $250/night adds up quickly if you're planning multi-month trips...

    Refreshed “2021” Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    Can someone who has received their 2021 Performance please verify the 0-60 time? A lot of us are watching to see if it's quicker than the 2020 models or if they just changed the marketing

    Sleeping in the car for 2 weeks?

    I slept in my model 3 for a couple weeks using a Thermarest pad and sleeping bag however I've updated to an Exped Megamat Duo 10 it's the way to go– it easily rolls up and fits in the under trunk storage compartment and is super comfortable

    Do I have a heat pump?

    Yes, Tesla officially confirmed that all Model 3's produced after October 5, 2020 have heat pumps installed. Can anyone with a Model 3 Performance produced after October 5th please note their range/instrumented 0-60 time?

    Model 3 Wood Trim Replacement

    If I buy a white interior Model 3, will Tesla install the wood grain dash panel at my request?

    Somehow changed to old stealth order?

    This likely refers to Long-Range AWD with 'Performance Boost' already installed

    Stealth Performance Now Available!

    Perhaps they're making room in their pricing model for the 100kw Ludicrous version of the Model 3?

    M3P- . What is it, how to order it, etc.

    I saw there was one in inventory last week. I currently know of two others for sale with about 5000 miles on them. But these would not be sold as "new"
