    Are RWD really being fulfilled within 4 weeks?

    wow.....I placed an order on 10/3 and I am still waiting for someone to contact me about delivery dates. I'm based out of the CA and have a BLK/BLK RWD, 19" on order. I think I need to ping NA Sales to find out what is going on here!

    New HOV Stickers

    I just received my HOV stickers and I’m not thrilled to put it onto my white Molde 3. It seems that DMV wants stickers all around the vehicle.

    No blindspot warning on Model 3?

    The ultrasonic sensors work but aren’t all that reliable. Compared with those on my Model S, I’d say the Model 3 sensors are probably 10-20% more reliable. I Dont believe the range of these sensors has improved by 2X from earlier models, which had limited range and only picked up vehicles...

    Will Porsche Mission E be the right vehicle for me?

    If you have the means to, get a Tesla now to fill the 2-3yrs it takes to see the Mission-E in production and then trade in the S!

    Issues closing the doors

    Yes, it does take a great deal of force to get the doors to close. Hopefully, the door seals will soften over time and will require less force to get the door to close.

    Already on 50.11 but just got an update notification.

    I am currently on 50.10 but my vehicle does not have EAP. I wonder whether these updates are more specifically designed for vehicles w/ EAP.

    Can't "Unsee" These Defects...

    I just picked up my model 3. Well, QA is still a bit off the mark. Here you can see some examples of how panels are still not exactly lining up.

    I did try that a few times but it didn’t do anything. I’ve sent an email to Tesla Service for guidance.

    Model 3 parking sensor - no audible warning

    i JUST picked up my model 3 from Fremont. Was testing it in the parking lot and noticed that while backing up, the parking sensors picked up distance but there was no audible warning like with my model S. Is this normal or an error with my sensors? Tesla delivery rep says it’s an upcoming...

    Tesla Buyback for your Model S?

    I recently had tesla appraise my 2015 85D w/ 58k miles on it. They completely lowballed me on the appraisal and came in way below KBB prices. CarMax actually gave me a value that was more than 15% above what Tesla offered.

    new model s: panel / chrome trim alignment issues

    It is very common unfortunately. I had one of the SC take a look at it and basically the way they go about fixing it is to roll down the window and then, using both hands, to pull the trim from the bottom and adjust the trim until it aligns with the trim on the rest of the frame. Apparently...

    Why all the hate for the Aero wheels?

    I wish they would have an aero option for the 19" wheel options. I think that would look better and probably closer to the wheels during the first unveiling.

    2015 Model S w/ Misaligned doors

    I'm nearing my 50K mile warranty and I'm debating whether to ask Tesla Service to fix my misaligned doors (see pictures). Has anyone else taken in their vehicle to have these misalignment doors repaired and were you satisfied with the results? My concern is that Tesla may just refuse to fix it...

    Tesla Weather App?

    Yes - definitely needed. Lots of micro-climates here in the Bay Area so having a dedicated weather app would be very useful.

    v8.0 Update Failed. Was that my only shot at an update?

    I got a similar response after I brought my car in for a checkup on my firmware. the SC was aware of my software update failure notice but did not load v8 onto my vehicle after the service. They said Tesla engineering is still rolling out updates in batches and basically just keep waiting for...

    Software Update 10/18 ??

    I'm still waiting on my v8 update. The SC wasn't able to load it on my car. They said it wasn't staged yet so they can't push it manually to my car. I'm very bummed!

    Still Waitin on 8

    I eventually had my car in at my local SC asking about v8. They told me that my vehicle along with a whole fleet of cars are still on v7. They said v8 is still being "fixed". I asked how long will this take and they didn't give me a timeline saying that it's up to Tesla engineering. So I'm...

    Waaaah! I don't have 8.0 yet!

    I have not received my v8.0 update yet. Three days ago, I came across a software notification via my mobile app telling me that the Software Update had failed. However, I never came across the yellow timer icon telling me to accept an update in my car and I've been keeping my car connected to...

    Just got rear ended

    I was rear-ended about a month and a half back. It was a low speed impact and the driver left two dimples on my rear-bumper. I brought it into my insurance for an adjuster quote and it came out to be around ~$800. I then had to wait three weeks before I can bring the car to a certified Tesla...
