    Vendor 3D Maxpider 10% off When ordering Frunk and Trunk w/ Interior mats!

    I was in batch 2 and it arrived today. I think 2 and 3 were together so next batch should be 4.

    Performance Upgrade Price Change!--What does this mean for AWD owners

    By the way, Elon said all previous P3D owners will have free supercharging for life or get their $5k refunded. He then said he was taking a break from Twitter so perhaps someone at HQ kicked him off for making too big of a promise. But chances are you'll likely get a refund.

    For those who paid $5K, $6K for Dual Motors....

    It definitely sucks but the way I see it is that at time of purchase, you knew exactly what you were paying for and at what price. If your car wasn't produced yet, the right thing for Tesla to do is essentially goodwill it at the new lower price, but if it's already being transported, then they...

    Ho Ho Ho, no reindeers?

    If you hold down the right scroll button on the 3, it enables the voice commands and should mute all the sound.

    Web Browser Useless

    This doesn't excuse the slow browser but I'm not sure why we even need browsers in cars (with the exception of Tesla Waze and Spotify control). It's so much easier to use the phone and all the things I frequent already have apps that give me instant access to what I need.

    FS: Model 3 Sunshade - Covercraft UVS100 - Blue Metallic - Crease Flaw

    I'm selling my Model 3 custom fit sunshade from Covercraft. It's the same as the one sold from AutoAnything/CarId: Covercraft UVS100 Windshield Sun Shade. I had to buy a new one as the one I was sent had a crease across the middle. Pictures are attached. For anyone who doesn't care too much...

    Rear Camera Modes

    Could it be possible you are mistaken? There is only one rear camera display. Different angles would require multiple cameras or different lenses.

    Blendmount for Model 3/Blackvue

    Is that the Google parking lot? The mount looks more obtrusive than I thought compared to the adhesive. Not sure if it's worth the price.

    From 340xi to Tesla dual motor Model 3 - mini comparo.

    It needs to be pressed down twice. Pushing up once (or twice, I forget) usually gives you dum dum sound which indicates that it is being turned off. If you look at the left side where it says D N R on the screen, if the little wheel is highlighted blue it means you are on AP. If the wheel is...

    Any Porsche defectors?

    Porsche is notorious for understating their 0-60 times and I expect it to be quite fast. The range will almost certainly be less than 300 miles using EPA standards. The interior is nicer for sure and will be a decent competitor with the Model S. The price is still up in the air but fully...

    Tesla promised to take 2 cars in trade...now 10 days before delivery refuses!

    This situation sucks but it won't honor the verbal agreement, there's not much that can be done besides trying to escalate. As others alluded to, trade in the more expensive car and sell the other. If the total was $58k and we use hypothetical $33k (trade-in) and $25k (private sale) values, the...

    3D Maxpider Kagu Mats for Model 3

    They don't have trunk/frunk mats I believe. The US online store has the official Tesla ones (Weathertech) here: Model 3 All-Weather Cargo Mats. Perhaps they are in the shop for Canada as well?

    Was your delivery date accurate?

    My initial delivery was on a Friday I believe but then they pushed it to the next Friday. However, they were able to get it to my by the next Wednesday, so 5 days late. No complaints though as they were very professional about it and told me they were fixing a minor issue (and even outperformed...

    The difference is that eBay was flooded with Chinese drop-shopping items. They will soon moving towards a Product-based shopping experience like Amazon. On Amazon, it's easy to find the lowest price and then purchase from a seller with good ratings. Any product with a lot of good reviews will...

    Low tire pressure; cooler temps

    Same happened to me today. Delivered at the near perfect 39 psi for the summer. Today temperatures dropped down to mid 60s and psi dropped to 35-36. I'll be pumping air in tomorrow to solve the issue. No worries since it is temperature and affected all tires. It's more troubling when only one...

    Front License Plate

    When I picked up in NY, they asked if I wanted to install it myself or have them do it for me. Since it is required here as you mentioned, I just asked my DA to do it. Took literally 15 seconds because of the double sided tape.

    New owner of a Brand New Model-3 (Long Range AWD with Dual Motor)

    A feature I never knew about was brake hold. I was shocked when my car started sliding backwards while moving my foot from the brake to accelerator (on a hill). If you press the brake down hard, the screen should have the letter H with a circle around it to indicate that the car will engage the...

    I do not like buying a car this way - lack of face to face contact

    As a millennial, I've grown up in an age where to prefer convenience over face time. I like being able to think about options privately, researching independently, and then being able to order at home in my underwear.

    Auto High beam stopped working?

    I think for the auto high beam, you need to turn on high beams manually first. Otherwise it thinks you want to use regular headlights.

    glass roof - production change (July 2018)?

    In my opinion, both the top and back glass should change color after it rains. This happened to some people even prior to July and they needed to get it fixed if I remember correctly.

    How long did it take you get used to no dash screen?

    You can get seat heating directly from the main navigation bar at the bottom for the front seats. If you want to get seat heating for the back, then you'll need to click into a separate tab.

    How long did it take you get used to no dash screen?

    Pretty much got used to it immediately and I came from something very different (much older car). It took me about 2 days before I knew where all the buttons were but there is a learning curve with any new set of "buttons." At least the ones in the Tesla are marked while some physical buttons...

    The $54,000 Paperweight (Registration problems)

    I'm surprised you didn't attempt to visit your delivery center in person. The best way to get anything done is to be right in their face. Phone calls can be blown off easily as you experienced.

    TSLA Market Action: 2018 Investor Roundtable

    The stock has already been priced with the expectation the deal would not occur for the past week. Everyone should just put this behind instead of talking about it incessantly. Focus on TSLA and if you see the big picture, you will understand that Tesla has interesting quarters ahead in Q3 and...

    Rent a Tesla Unlimited Miles

    I would let him know that you are planning to take it cross-country (but then he would likely reject you). Even if it says unlimited miles, I don't think he expects someone to drive it over 7,000 miles and it would be the decent thing to ask for permission.

    TSLA Market Action: 2018 Investor Roundtable

    Yes, not much money at all. For a few days out of the year (<10) you might get significantly higher rates (10-25% annualized AFTER 50% split) with 80-100% of your shares loaned out. Really depends on if people want to short (and remember this is only for IB as shares can be shorted at another...

    TSLA Market Action: 2018 Investor Roundtable

    I am. Since IB lends out a proportion of how many shares are eligible to be shorted, I can calculate real-time availability by percent. Since 10% of my shares are being lent out, it means 90% of all eligible shares have not been lent out. For example if 1 million shareholders (with 1 share...

    TSLA Market Action: 2018 Investor Roundtable

    Honestly, it doesn't matter as much as people think besides the principle of it. Short term borrow rates are pretty low on TSLA (though it does spike every so often). Mutual funds don't care and will allow their shares to be rehypothecated in most cases. If you use Interactive Brokers or...

    TSLA Market Action: 2018 Investor Roundtable

    Ahh I understand. If you buy back the option for $50, you're no longer obligated to sell at $320. You keep the shares which are now currently worth $370. However, even though the shares are worth $370, you've essentially lost $50 - premiums you collected. It is akin to artificially getting...

    TSLA Market Action: 2018 Investor Roundtable

    Yeah, I believe it's randomly assigned by the OCC. I bought back way earlier today and the scenario above is essentially what played out. Which is why I'm confused... pretty much the only drawback of covered calls is that you give up potential profit. But to me, it appears that if you buy...

    TSLA Market Action: 2018 Investor Roundtable

    Question that hopefully maybe someone can help me answer. This is one of the few times my SP got hit on a covered call, which got me thinking. I wrote a weekly CC expiring today with a SP of $320. Let's say it's 3:59PM and using real after-market values, TSLA closes at $322.79 with the option...

    Would you cancel your order if you do not get it by the end of 2018 poll

    In the Ontario tax rebate situation, I believe they gave people refunds for their "non-refundable deposit" after the loss of the rebate. T hey might do it for a few edge cases but the US tax credit has a defined end date where as Ontario didn't. Allowing many people to refund and cancel would...

    Kenriko, I know this might be a little weird since you fulfill through Amazon but do you plan on having custom sets? For example, I think having something like matte black door trim, with a carbon fiber "open door" button to help distinguish it, would look interesting.

    Does 1 share get you into the private company?

    The site made it a lot more clear. If Tesla designates a broker to hold all our shares, it will be counted as a single shareholder (with everyone who wants in declared as beneficial owners which the limitation does not apply to). One step closer to being privatized.

    Does 1 share get you into the private company?

    Good point. I'm still getting conflicting information from Google-fu/Investopedia: 2000 Investor Limit. I thought a key phrase was "...do not wish to disclose financial information for public consumption" but SpaceX doesn't release their financials. Interesting conundrum.

    Does 1 share get you into the private company?

    I am no securities lawyer but I remember reading that a private company is limited to 2,000 shareholders. Not sure if a special purpose vehicle will bypass that but I'm guessing it won't.

    Tesla call options

    There are two values to consider: intrinsic value and extrinsic value. If the stock is at $420 and you have a call for $400, the intrinsic value is $20. The extrinsic value relates to things like theta/time decay. If the stock isn't worth anything above $420, then you'll likely have decreased...
