    Tesla releases big, new software update with Disney+, Car Wash Mode, remain connected to wifi, and more - 2021.24.x

    Love Car Wash mode! Was very annoying when I wash my car and the darn charge port door would open. Now let’s get ‘The Button’

    Just venting over “first scratch”

    Same issue here, had some gray Honda touch up paint and that really helped. Also, got sideswiped coming home from having PPF installed, 6 days after picking up my car.

    2021.4.12.2 SW Issue? Jumps back in Lane at lane change

    Not saying it should have done anything differently. Was the first time it happened and thought maybe it would be helpful to the OP.

    2021.4.12.2 SW Issue? Jumps back in Lane at lane change

    Happened to me today on NOA on 12.2. Realized it was trying to make the lane change over a solid white line in a construction area and refused to do it. The blinker stayed on and the blue target stayed on and the lane change happened after the solid white line ended.

    Before I screw up my Model 3 in the car wash...

    My XPEL installer has in writing he will replace the PPF for free in 5 years. I pay for the old to be removed.

    Model 3 size - more like an Accord or more like a Civic?

    Model 3 is 10" shorter than my 12 Accord and 5" longer than my son's 20 Civic.

    Windshield cracked - Any suggestions to replace in SFL

    Depends on your insurance. Generally if the crack is shorter than the length of a dollar Bill, it won’t be replaced and repair is usually covered. Safelite in Tampa replaced and recalibrated my wife’s Passport cracked windshield and coordinated everything with insurance

    Tesla Model 3 vs. Honda Accord Hybrid

    My Model 3 is the first non-Honda new car I've owned. Really is apples v oranges, depending on what you want. I sold my 2012 Accord to purchase my Tesla. My Accord was the best, most reliable car I have ever owned. I went into the Tesla purchase knowing it may not match that standard. I am...

    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07Y9R7JT8/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o05_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 This has helped the wind noise a great deal. Installed over gaps where windshield meets the roof glass and gaps from A-pillar all the way back to the rear door.

    Did you PPF your new Tesla?

    When I was hit, driving home from the shop where I had the PPF put on, the other driver's insurance paid for the wrap. As long as I had the receipt and declared it they paid.

    Help Requested with new boombox feature

    Same here. Wanted to listen to music while washing my car but as soon as I closed the door the boombox shut off.

    Did anyone come from bigger size sedan to Tesla Model 3?

    I came from a 2012 Accord (a real Dad car). My 3 is 10" shorter and fits better in the garage. Front seat room is nearly as good, back seat room is OK, but obviously not as good as the longer Accord. Comparing the 3 and Accord are apples/oranges. For an ICE car my Accord was the best I ever...

    Vendor TEMAI Giveaway 2020 (Archived)

    Thanks TEMAI for the control panel decoration kit! Was easy to install. It took more time to remove the covering of the adhesive strips than it did to install the panels. The Matte Black panels are even less reflective than the vinyl I had on previously. So far so good. It looks like it...

    Converting a pool to salt water

    We switched to salt a few years ago and love it! We have no more algae issues and crystal clear water with much less effort than previously and you don't smell like chlorine when you get out of the pool. Once a week I add a little hydrochloric acid as I know what it takes each week. A bag of...

    M3 Dimensions for garage layout?

    My garage parking spot is 10’ x 17’. That allows for doors to open one notch and room to walk in front and squeeze around between the car and garage door.

    Next Step - Drafting Contract

    When I talked to a sales guy at an SC, he brought up the web page for my vehicle after it was 'born'. It gave the logistics and projected dates of arrival. It was cool to see.

    Is it even worth the effort to call Tesla about order status?

    I got better answers when I stopped into the SC and chatted with associates who helped me each time.

    Next Step - Drafting Contract

    I stopped into 2 different SCs and asked about my order. Both places happy to help. My car was built 8/25 and delivered to the Tampa SC 9/13. That's the typical time frame for the SE. Delivery in the middle of the last month of the quarter. Cars are built in CA then get on a train to...

    The invoice didn’t say how long it took because I wasn’t charged anything. Sorry.
