    LFP Battery for SR in US? [ Confirmed - Tesla sending emails to current SR+ orders}

    See knowing how Tesla works I’ve been wondering for some time if the “inventory” ones are not batteries coming from Shanghai but from Fremont. Kind of test out the waters in n america. It feels very Tesla esq for Elon to say every model 3sr produce after x date all had lfp. Surprise.

    LFP Battery for SR in US? [ Confirmed - Tesla sending emails to current SR+ orders}

    Does anyone think this is why there’s such a huge backlog for sr+ right now

    SR/SR+ Waiting Room

    I initially ordered my M3SR+/18/White/NOFSD back in February but I wanted the car for September and my SA advised me to activate the order on August. I reactivated everything with loan application on 08/10. After that, my EDD was Nov1-Nov22 and then changed to Oct22-Nov10. today I reapplied for...

    Anything can happen between now and the time you take delivery. Anything. They add unless it’s a pay add the car will have.

    Car swaying

    Well as it turns out I needed all 8 control arms and links replaced. It was **cough couch $4000 to fix it all. But good news is car is back to normal. And they were honestly great about everything

    Antifreeze smell

    Thank you! I was sorta feeling like wth now. I just bought a new car with suspension parts. Thank goodness the DU needed replacing or it would have even two.

    Antifreeze smell

    Tesla had my car for two weeks so that they could replace my rear perf drive unit. (It took that long to source the parts) they also replaced all the control arms while it was there. Don’t even ask. My question tho is. I picked up my car today. It drives great. No more awful sounds I got...

    SR/SR+ Waiting Room

    I spoke to a showroom supervisor because j was supposed to test drive a sr+ (have driven LRrwd when service was going my alignment but wanted to see the difference) they sold the car right off the floor quite literally. He said that all showrooms were told to sell all their inventory and to...

    SR/SR+ Waiting Room

    Message your delivery advisor They should have sent you a text message the day after you ordered to Introduce themselves. Ask them if you can push out. Iirc you can one time without forefeiting your deposit. Tho things could have changed there to.

    SR/SR+ Waiting Room

    I ordered yesteday. White/black interior. Literally no changes.this isn’t my first Tesla. In fact it will be my third. But it’s a little odd. In my account yesteday it said expect delivery in April. I got up this morning to an email that said welcome to the Tesla family (apparently the two...

    Wrapping sliding armrest with alcantara

    I bought it at Michaels a craft store. I used a hairdryer to heat the glue a little so that it would adhere best. It comes in a variety of colors so you can March your leather.

    Car swaying

    To give a little background here Beginning of September my car started heading to the right while driving (like I needed to apply constant torque on the steering wheel to keep it from the ditch. I made an appointment for the end of the week for an alignment for the car. As I got closer to that...

    Pulls to the LEFT under Acceleration, pulls to the RIGHT under Regen.

    Can I ask anyone is this a concern for something to break? I had my car in to service 9 days ago for this exact issue. They said the car was out of alignment (literally the ONE driver rear tire only) they fixed the alignment and everything was fine. Until today. Now it’s swaying out the back end...

    2021 sr+ Awd

    I had a LR RWD last weekend while Tesla did an alignment on my S. I didn’t even know until the 3rd day it was RWD. I wanted to see if the acceleration was different in the LR RWD over the SR+. I don’t really care about the speakers or rear seat warmers. Can I ask does the passenger seat move 12...

    2021 sr+ Awd

    Ya. It was a typo. The showrooms don’t keep the sr plus.

    2021 sr+ Awd

    Hey guys. Looking for someone with a 2021 sr+ that you’d let me look at or ride in? I have an s and y but looking to add a 3 to the mix. I’m on the east side but we willing to meet up. Can buy coffee!

    Humming/buzzing from DU

    Mine is going i mine is going back again Wednesday to hopefully get replaced this time. Last time they said “within spec” it’s just gotten louder and louder and it’s a little embarrassing when people keep asking what is that sound and I thought your car was silent. Not so much anymore.

    Does the gov consider the day you put down $100 as your order date?

    Whatever the price was the day you out your deposit down is the price you pay! I don’t see MY going down in price while demand is so high. In fact the opposite. According to wayback last year at this time the MYLR was $46,900. So there’s that.

    Acceleration boost 1/4 mile

    Can I ask a silly question. Do you feel like the boost was worth it? It’s not a lot of $$ but wonder if it’s worth the .5seconds. I was going to order a MYP but we need 7 seats and…Tesla refuses to give me 19’s Instead of 21’s so going with MYLR. Coming from a perf S I’m a little worried...

    Perf y with perf brakes and geminis?

    I won’t take delivery until Decemberish so I may hit you up and do a straight swap. I’ll message you when I get closer.

    Perf y with perf brakes and geminis?

    Thank you!! Now to work on Tesla as I have zero use for the 21’s.
  27. Alysashley79

    Perf y with perf brakes and geminis?

    Does anyone have the perf MY with perf brakes and geminis? (I’m asking this way because the sleepers Tesla sometimes makes don’t have the perf brakes) I’m being told by sales that I cannot do this yet I’ve seen it done on YouTube. Anyone here done it? Was it just a straight wheel/tire swap out?

    2017 Model S Milling Noise [Resolved]

    So did you take it elsewhere (another svc center) or same? Im in the same boat. I took mine in April and they told me the same thing. I leave the music up so loud I could burst my ear drums to keep from hearing the noise. So annoying.

    EEMC or Mobile Connector?

    Can you reach out to a fellow Tesla owner in your area to use their UMC to see how it charges. Honestly. It sounds more like the actual charge port going out than either of the things you mentioned. I could be wrong.

    Used Tesla - Vehicle Maintenance History

    They won’t give it to you in writing. But if you ask really nicely as to what has been done they’ll verbally tell you over the phone. my car had one oem tire/wheel replaced in its first 35k miles. That’s it. It also had 3 annual maintence performed. Since and add another 45k miles in two years...

    Humming/buzzing from DU

    About two weeks ago I started noticing a buzzing/humming noise coming from one of my DU’s. I suspect the rear. It also feels a lot more jarring when letting off the accelerator at low speeds. Almost like an inaudible clunk. Has anyone else experienced this and with what result? I made an appt...

    I’d ask what year car you have? Do you have a motorized door or just magnet door?

    LR 0-60 over 5 seconds

    Silly question but are you sure the car isn’t in chill? IMO draggy will be a little better for the 0-60 times unless your local track clocks that for you (mine locally doesn’t just gives quarter mile time and speed) I had a MY that was service center locked in chill and it did the 0-60 at...

    AP 1 removed feature?

    1)to the op. I’m running the same software as you are and mine works just fine. I’ve noticed when things don’t work a quick reboot will usually take care of the issue. (I have mcu1 as well and mine randomly reboots itself several times a week (eemc failure) so I always do a reboot myself after...

    Very strange service center experience center with odometer - did I get someone else's eMMC daughter board?

    I was going to add that I doubt they did anything to your Emmc when they had it. My guess is that your Emmc is just actually crapping out. Mine literally went from fine to what your experiencing overnight. I was on a road trip and my odo did the same thing (car hadn’t even seen Tesla for over 6...

    Arizona wheel repair

    I picked up a large screw that apparently out a small crack in my rear wheel (staggered set up) my car is down in AZ for a few weeks. Looking to get it repaired vs replaced at this point. Can anyone recommend a good place to do this? Extra points if in the Mesa. Apache junction area.

    Liking the S

    If you can pick up a late 2014 (vin above 70k) in that price range I’d jump all over it. I have a 12/14 p85d and love it. I also love the Y. When my son starts driving on the daily he’ll get our Prius my hubs will keep our S and I’ll get myself a perf Y.
  38. Alysashley79

    When you have a service, do you get a courtesy car?

    I like to refer to chill mode as “Prius mode” the 0-60 in my perf S is around 7 seconds (hangs head in shame)
  39. Alysashley79

    When you have a service, do you get a courtesy car?

    the worst was when my car was in for mcu issues they gave me a brand new performance model Y. We’ve been wanting one and it’s on the list for later this year when my son get his license. I was so excited thinking I could really give it a good test in the snow and all over town. Until I realized...

    When you have a service, do you get a courtesy car?

    This isn’t 100% accurate. Tesla has a fleet of loaners for each location. When they run out (think all our older used cars we trade) they sell them to enterprise and then they rent to us) fwiw Tesla only gets charged $65/day for a Tesla and they charge close to $100/day for one of their ICE...

    Driver Seat Sensor not recognizing when Driver Gets out

    I had this same issue. The sensor does in fact control the airbag deployment. It started by saying I wasn’t buckled. On and off. Then it didn’t know if I was in the car it not and wasn’t powering down one close door. Played all the games. Then I got the airbag off all the time. My car is still...

    $22k HV Battery Damage Not Covered. Help!

    Silly question here but back in 2013-2014 Elon got on a stage in front of the world and said that the battery on the model S was covered even if the damage was caused on purpose. He made these statements shortly after the two row hook incidents where the battery caught on fire October 2013ish...

    Tesla online used car purchase MAJOR ISSUES

    I wouldn’t do it unless I was guaranteed a refund or at least put it towards another car if it’s crap. I bought used and had a great experienced. But I also had pictures. And then even more pictures (I know some people at Mannheim) my car was flawless. I don’t think I’d do it again today as...

    Tesla online used car purchase MAJOR ISSUES

    I completely agree with you. I don’t think the one year warranty on top of the original 50k warranty is worth it imo. It would be in their best interest to either actually hire people that know used cars and treat those like they do with new car sales. Or hire a company to 100% handle their used...

    Tesla online used car purchase MAJOR ISSUES

    the reason that pics aren’t taken anymore is because of all the complaints people had about the quality of the pictures. So now we don’t get ANY pictures. Tesla employs Mannheim to keep the vehicles secure and transport them. (Part of their contract was pictures which they took. But keep in mind...

    NHTSA asks Tesla to recall 158,000 [now 135,000] vehicles for eMMC failure. Voluntary Recall issued

    I understand why some are just choosing to fork over even more $& to get their car to work. Is anyone else concerned that this will be Tesla’s answer to the recall because so many are willing to do it? It’s one thing to choose to upgrade (like ordering the plaid over my o85D. it’s another to be...

    Wheh was the last time someone has done this? What iteration of the software? I know with the last when my mcu crashed I have access to nothing. Air turns off. Wipers turn off. Headlights abs DRL turn off. Today in fact my MCU crashed and when I barely touched the accelerator my car lurched...

    NHTSA asks Tesla to recall 158,000 [now 135,000] vehicles for eMMC failure. Voluntary Recall issued

    the only issue with the daughterboard thing is that they don’t have 158,000 of them. They can’t get 158,000 of them. (Source is someone who works at Tesla) I was told even if they could source enough the problem is that it could cost them more than their cost for mcu2. honestly at the end of...

    You’d think that. According to Tesla they can’t actually do that.
