    I finally got the 2021.36.5.5 update. Downloading now.

    2021.11.x Firmware

    Does not give me hope. I was hoping to have the update in the next week. Mine was delivered over a week after your's and also is still on .103.

    Vision-only cars

    Good to know! I heard it takes about a month for a new car's VIN to be added to the update system or something on Tesla's side.

    Same. I am on 3 weeks since my delivery.

    "Acceleration Boost" option, discussion as to which models and how much quicker

    It won't. I thought I could possibly want to return it before I got mine and I will never go back. I came from driving the car in chill for the first day to get used to everything. Second day I went acceleration boost sport and I regret nothing.

    I am still sitting on 11.103. I hope I will get an update to the 32.x in the next week or two.

    Thanks for clarifying this. Glad to know. No update for me yet then.

    Vision-only cars

    This may be a silly question, but new to this still. Does the car need to be connected to Wifi for the update to even appear, or is it just needed to download it? I live in an apartment building so my wifi does not make it down to the garage. I would need to hotspot it with my phone (my guess)...

    Thanks! :) Yeah I think it is one of the better colors to do stealth on. Plus, it makes it a unique white instead of common.

    did you do 35%? I did 50% on mine. Sadly, that is all that is legal in my state and it is too dark for states near me either. I have never tinted a car before this one but I felt it would help with heat rejection and save some battery from A/C. Also I am extremely light sensitive, so I was...

    After the week wait, my car is finally back! Here are some pics from the stealth wrap and 50% ceramic tint. I added the performance brushed aluminum pedals (not shown) and the acceleration boost, but otherwise no other modifications at this point. I will be going back in 2 weeks for the "check...

    Pic of your Model 3.......RIGHT NOW! [model 3 pictures thread]

    Agreed. For me, I decided to get a stealth wrap. I don't see many of those so I think my car is fairly unique. Luckily the only time I was at a supercharger, I was the only white 3 there. I saw a plaid and gave the owner a thumbs up as I walked past to go into the grocery store. It was the first...

    I think it is good to be brighter. It shines more and is more noticeable. Like the performance red is really bright and that compliments it well—same idea here!

    "Acceleration Boost" option, discussion as to which models and how much quicker

    Acceleration boost added :) It is super quick!
  15. S

    Pic of your Model 3.......RIGHT NOW! [model 3 pictures thread]

    I think it really depends. For me, I had to to the full car simply due to getting stealth instead of clear. If you go clear, I think the front and sides is good.

    Lookin good! I get my car back tomorrow from ppf and tinting. I also have to wait ~2 weeks before I can put on the black badges and emblems. I am super super excited for tomorrow afternoon!

    "Acceleration Boost" option, discussion as to which models and how much quicker

    Good to know it can be easily controlled with light pressure. Thanks for the response! I will definitely be getting myself the boost in the coming days! :)

    "Acceleration Boost" option, discussion as to which models and how much quicker

    I have been debating getting it on my new M3LR. I would not hesitate to get it if it did not replace the standard acceleration mode. I am honestly scared the throttle will be far too "jumpy" or "touchy" given I live in a city. It would be fun to experience the push you back in your seat every...

    Funny thing is, there is no L option in there so I am not even sure. I have seen people in other threads post that NCA and LFP can both be E coded. I guess the for sure way is to go into the charging screen in your car and see if there is a distinction at the top end saying "trip". I guess LFP...

    Wait, what?! I have an E on my VIN 7th position but I have an LR AWD. I think the E just means it is an electric vehicle, not a tesla specific code. I could be wrong though. The decoder just says its a lithium-ion battery powered vehicle.

    Yeah I love that. I think it looks so good! I will have two back T's I may leave front off as well. Mine also has a black performance underline in case I had a performance model, so I will just leave that off. The black lettering looks great!

    Pic of your Model 3.......RIGHT NOW! [model 3 pictures thread]

    Are you going to leave your emblems and badges off or are you planning to replace? I got some glossy black ones being shipped to replace after mine got removed from ppf install. I think it will match the trim pretty well and pick up the black on the center cap on the wheels.

    Vision-only cars

    So this may be weird, but I just took delivery of my car a few days ago. I was curious what version I was on (haven't done a manual upgrade or anything) and I am on 2021.11.103. Dunno if that helps add a point somewhere or not.

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    I would say expect one between today and Monday. Tuesday at the latest. It is unusual to go longer than a week after getting the VIN.

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    Thankfully I never experienced it going back to November or anything after September. I ordered and was originally just "November" then moved to September and stayed there. But, I have seen people go back to "November" or October dates for a few days then move back. Their system does all sorts...

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    We chose the different option. Carvana charges you a small fee to cut you a check then and there. I don't need the money that day so I opted for the slightly slower (and free) route of direct deposit. They calculated the amount based off of the 10 day pay off letter I got so I assume they just...

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    I tried carmax, carvana, and local dealerships (and tesla trade in). Tesla's offer was lowest, then dealership, then carmax. Carvana was the highest offer and we purposefully scheduled the pick up after the Tesla arrived so we had a car while we are waiting for the ppf to get applied to the car...

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    I know the feeling. I am dreading this weekend and the first half of next week. I have the car, but had to drop it off to get the ppf applied. I don't know if it will be done by Wednesday or Thursday. It could be a full week without the car lol. Also selling my current car on Monday so it will...

    Looking good so far! I dropped mine off today for a full stealth wrap as well. I am hoping I can get it back Wednesday or Thursday next week.

    Model 3 delivered last night, but can't "accept delivery" in app?

    Okay now that I have experienced it with my delivery today, I had the same issue. So this is what resolved it. The person who brought the car to me, texted his store lead with pictures saying the car was delivered. About 10-15 minutes later, the email came that I had the option to accept...

    Fees Coverage

    I think it may be different for each state, but mine was an order fee, document fee, destination fee, registration fee(this is to get the new plates and processing of registration in my state) and registration tax (the yearly amount I have to pay to renew the plates—this is the stickers each...

    Credit bureau used for Tesla financing

    Can concur. Sometimes only one is needed. It really depends on who gets your app and accepts/does the pull first. I got a hard pull on 2 of the 3. I think it is cause they send one app at a time or something and go down the list. Or, just all of the banks only pulled from the same 2. I have no...

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    Took delivery a few hours ago. Car was immaculate. Panel gaps were even across the entire car, no paint issues, no wheel damage, white color was spot on throughout even the bumper. Two extremely minor issues was a small bit of residue on the front bumper (Easily came off with a quick wipe and a...

    Model 3 delivered last night, but can't "accept delivery" in app?

    Sadly I have not gotten to do my delivery yet (in an hour or so), but from how I understand it you are supposed to accept delivery in your account on tesla's website. Only after you accept delivery there does the app have your car controls. Also, I was told you need to log out of your app to...

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    I wouldn't be too worried. It took me nearly an entire week after I got my VIN before they reached out to me to schedule delivery. Then it was almost another week between scheduling and delivery.

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    Our cars might have been on the same delivery train/truck. I think they send them to the region hub in Chicago first before going into the midwest states.

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    Well it looks like my time in this thread is quickly coming to a close. Got a call this morning from my delivery center. The car is there and has been inspected. They pushed my delivery up to tomorrow rather than Friday. I will post pics when I get the chance. Keep up the positivity and thanks...

    Home Delivery at an Apartment Building?

    I can text the SA person I have but they are located in Las Vegas, so I am not entirely sure if they can just swap it over for me. I will check with them tomorrow and see if there is anyway to get it changed without a delay in the delivery date.

    Home Delivery at an Apartment Building?

    That is good to know! I am sure they will find a spot even if it is a few blocks away. It is at 10am so a lot of people who are at work will be gone and should free up some street parking. Thanks for your response!

    Home Delivery at an Apartment Building?

    I don't have the number to my delivery center. I have tried a general chat and texting my SA. So far nothing has changed to just let me go there to pick it up. My Delivery center is only 9 miles away, so I would not mind the drive to go get it. Yeah there really isnt much parking near me. The...

    Home Delivery at an Apartment Building?

    Hi everyone, sorry for the new thread—but, I could not find anything about a home delivery experience while living in an apartment complex. I am just wondering if anyone has any advice on what to expect? My delivery appointment is scheduled for this Friday and there is no parking lot for them to...

    Mine was a 10 day window then I got it. Shortly afterward it dropped to a 6 day window before getting contacted to set up the exact delivery date and time.

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    Be prepared to wait a while. For me, it is looking like it will take about 11-14 days from VIN to delivery. Usually VIN means your car is about to get produced (within the next day or so). So it takes several days to get in transit and quite a while to go across the country. I would say expect...

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    So I reapplied and my interest went down to 2.49%, which saves me around $2,000 in interest over the life of the loan. I guess this ended up being a good thing in my situation.

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    Yes. I did not get a delivery date, or contacted for delivery for almost a week after my VIN showed up. My EDD moved twice after the VIN was assigned as well.

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    Very interesting. This morning I got a text saying to schedule delivery. It is now a home delivery instead of picking up at the delivery center (home delivery was not even an option for me before and I am not exactly sure how that will work given I live in an apartment building in a metropolis)...

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    I just reached out to my pre-sales advisor and was told my vehicle is currently planned to arrive at the delivery center on 9/18 with delivery scheduled sometime shortly after that point. This is going to be a longest week of waiting. Already have had several tesla dreams lol.

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    I am not sure you are asking for the full car, but I was quoted around 4900 for the entire car. I am planning to get the stealth cause I think white stealth looks amazing.
