    Master Thread: Updated Range and 0-60 times for Model 3 and Y

    I could be wrong but highly doubt Tesla would deliver a different spec vehicle. They would deliver what was ordered. Just like when they started delivering LFP batteries, people who had NCA on order were contacted and offered LFP vehicles. Their orders were not simply switched to LFP vehicles...

    Master thread: Delivery issues (panel gaps, delivery delays / issues / problems etc)

    From my experience and others I’ve read in here, they list a fee but you will not be charged. My service experience was just after delivery.

    Door alignment slightly off?

    I had similar issues with my front doors on delivery (along with other minor issues). I scheduled a service appointment and they fixed the alignment issues with no problem. The alignment issues were really bothering me and I feel so much better about the car now. If it’s really bothering you, I...

    Master thread: Delivery issues (panel gaps, delivery delays / issues / problems etc)

    Odd, I had the same issue and the service advisor recognized it immediately but they did fix it for me.

    What did you name your Tesla?

    Covid Tes. My car was delivered while both my wife and son were in isolation for Covid infections, so covid testing was fresh on my mind. Plus my 7 year old daughter randomly started calling the car either Tes or Tessie.

    [ I dont like the] Model 3 (wood trim)

    Same, I really like the wood trim in the car. Adds a touch of warmth and nature to an otherwise cold and stark environment.

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

    Haha, the wheels are not white. I don't think I would ever go with white wheels! They're the standard silver that the car comes with. It's just the exposure makes them look white in the pic. But either way, I am thinking of going metallic grey eventually. Still deciding. As for tint - I went...

    SR/SR+ (Model 3 RWD) Waiting Room

    I have not done a full charge yet. I have NCA and it caps at 90% charge. I have not had a need to drive a long distance so haven’t done a full charge. It is at 73% charge right now and shows a distance of 191 miles so the math indicates 100% would be 262 miles.

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

    With ceramic coating and 15% tint. Thinking about switching up the wheels.

    25% Ceramic Tint

    I did 15% all around - sides, back and top. Did no tint on the windshield. It looks dark from the outside, but it’s great from inside. No visibility issues. My previous car and my wife’s car both also have 15%.

    My NCA sticker is exactly the same as the one you posted.

    Anyone have the newer SPORT RIMS and taken the black caps off?

    Where did you get the parts that you used?

    I have NCA and my window sticker shows 262. I am simply sharing what my window sticker shows for my NCA.

    Where did you go to swap out your wheels? And what was the cost?

    I have NCA and the window sticker showed 262.

    SR/SR+ (Model 3 RWD) Waiting Room

    Yes on points 3 and 4, but was aware these were not included. I also had a few misaligned panels and tail light which I’ve already reported and have a service appointment for.

    Master thread: Delivery issues (panel gaps, delivery delays / issues / problems etc)

    Thanks. This is not ideal, but I suppose it is what it is at this point. Regardless of whether they can do anything about it and assuming this will cause no issues in the future, I will raise the issue with Tesla. They don’t seem to care what their customers think because their vehicles remain...

    Master thread: Delivery issues (panel gaps, delivery delays / issues / problems etc)

    A handful of cases found via Google search don’t make this practice any more acceptable. It further makes me question Tesla’s quality control and standards.

    SR/SR+ (Model 3 RWD) Waiting Room

    Depends on whether you want to talk with someone. I did everything online on my phone and never spoke with anyone. All communication was through text and email until I went to pick up my car. As I got closer to delivery they started texting and emailing more frequently. They were actually quite...

    Wireless Phone Case for Charging Dock

    I have not. I have a Nomad leather case on my IPhone 12 Pro and it connects and charges with no problem.

    SR/SR+ (Model 3 RWD) Waiting Room

    I can only speak from my own experience, but from the point you’re at, for me it was fairly smooth sailing. The day of delivery, however, I did receive a text message at 12:30 telling me my 1:00 delivery “appointment” was postponed to 3:00. It wasn’t an issue for me since I was not planning to...

    It may be fine, but I would still expect a more thorough paint job than a 1998 Kia. Is everyone’s M3 painted this way?
  23. P

    SR/SR+ (Model 3 RWD) Waiting Room

    Same here. When I saw I didn’t have Disney+ I figured I didn’t have the latest.
  24. P

    Master thread: Delivery issues (panel gaps, delivery delays / issues / problems etc)

    That’s new to me. I’ve never had a vehicle that had incomplete paint in these areas. I’ve owned Toyota, Acura, VW, Nissan, Audi, Lexus and BMW and I’ve never seen this before. I also worked at Kia years ago and never even saw this with their cars. Is it just domestic brands that paint this way...

    Master thread: Delivery issues (panel gaps, delivery delays / issues / problems etc)

    I just took delivery of my M3 SR+ yesterday and the car is great. However in looking more closely at the car, I’ve noticed incomplete paint work in “hidden” parts of the car, e.g., inside the panel where the door hinge attaches to the vehicle, under the frunk hood, and around the hinges on the...

    I’m in the south bay area of Los Angeles, not up north in the Bay Area. I took delivery in Marina Del Rey.

    SR/SR+ (Model 3 RWD) Waiting Room

    No, all through Plaid. I also wanted to pay my down with a credit card so I could get points, but they don’t accept credit cards. All that said, here it is! Exterior looks great. Some minor scratches and blemishes, but that will be taken care of with paint correction. Panels gaps all look great...

    I should have also specified, I’m in the LA area as well. I’m picking up in MDR. Are you picking up or having it delivered?

    SR/SR+ (Model 3 RWD) Waiting Room

    I was in the same exact situation as you with a similar delivery window (9/15-9/30) before it started to narrow and settled on 9/22-9/24. I chose to deliver today because of work and kids. I am in the Lyft now on my way to pick up my car! On your second question, I paid a couple of days ago...

    Congrats! I’m picking up my car tomorrow too, but not until the afternoon. Fingers crossed we both get cars with no issues!

    Did you apply PPF to the entire car? I'm debating whether I should do the full car or just the front.

    SR/SR+ (Model 3 RWD) Waiting Room

    I know your question was not for me, but I received my VIN last night and then received my delivery window this morning. Al through text and email. I wanted to pick up at the delivery center since I live close by so I texted the 510 number and also emailed the delivery center directly. They...

    SR/SR+ (Model 3 RWD) Waiting Room

    Was yours set for home delivery? And did you get the text/email to schedule home delivery? I received text and email to schedule home delivery, but I wanted to pick up at the delivery center (11 miles away) so I texted the 510 back and also emailed the local delivery center, and they quickly...

    SR/SR+ (Model 3 RWD) Waiting Room

    I ordered 8/8 and also received VIN 9/19. This morning I received a text to schedule delivery. My spec was similar to yours, except blue exterior. Still seeing if I can arrange a pickup at delivery center. No response yet.
  35. P

    SR/SR+ (Model 3 RWD) Waiting Room

    Does anyone have a POV or pros/cons for delivery vs pickup? I received the text to schedule delivery and like the convenience of the delivery, but wonder if I should go to the delivery center isnstead.

    SR/SR+ (Model 3 RWD) Waiting Room

    Finally got my VIN and delivery window is narrowed to 9/20-9/24!

    SR/SR+ (Model 3 RWD) Waiting Room

    I got the same response.
  38. P

    SR/SR+ (Model 3 RWD) Waiting Room

    No VIN for me yet either. The message indicates they are planning to build and deliver this month, so likely they haven't actually built yet.

    SR/SR+ (Model 3 RWD) Waiting Room

    I ordered 8/8. My EDD was consistently 9/15-9/30, then slipped to 9/17-9/30 a couple of weeks ago, and then moved to 9/15-9/29 this week before I received the text message today.
  41. P

    SR/SR+ (Model 3 RWD) Waiting Room

    I just received the same text! Great news, but interesting they are offering the option to defer.
  42. P

    SR/SR+ (Model 3 RWD) Waiting Room

    @NCee @rex920 your experiences have me worried! Fingers crossed your EDDs push back into September.
  43. P

    SR/SR+ (Model 3 RWD) Waiting Room

    Wow, thanks. I will continue to take all of these minor movements in EDD with a grain of salt. Fingers crossed we both get our cars by the end of the quarter.

    SR/SR+ (Model 3 RWD) Waiting Room

    In case anyone is still waiting for their NCA, I thought I'd share a quick update. I ordered on 8/8 and my EDD has finally shifted slightly to 9/15-9/29. It had been stuck at 9/17-9/30 for weeks but finally got some movement. We'll see if things hold. Still no vision statement or VIN, but...

    SR/SR+ (Model 3 RWD) Waiting Room

    My EDD has been 9/19-9/30 for over a week and has not moved at all. It was originally 9/17-9/30 and occasionally slipped to 9/18-9/30, but it has not changed since the LFPs were released.
  46. P

    SR/SR+ (Model 3 RWD) Waiting Room

    Thanks for sharing. Not encouraging for me to see your EDD pushed to October despite your earlier order date. I’m still expecting my EDD to push out as well.
  47. P

    SR/SR+ (Model 3 RWD) Waiting Room

    Thanks, it would be awesome if we can get that tax credit! Good to know your EDD has been fairly stable as well.
  48. P

    SR/SR+ (Model 3 RWD) Waiting Room

    Right, that’s why I want to get other experiences. I’m surprised my EDD hasn’t moved more. I would not be surprised to check one day and find a further delay.
  49. P

    SR/SR+ (Model 3 RWD) Waiting Room

    Yeah, I have been anticipating the date to be pushed back, which is why I wanted to see if others around the same order date had similar/different experiences. It looks like those who ordered in June/July in SoCal have experienced a lot of EDD fluctuation.
  50. P

    SR/SR+ (Model 3 RWD) Waiting Room

    I live in SoCal and ordered on 8/8. I had an original EDD of 9/17-9/30. The date has slipped back a couple of days to 9/19-9/30, but the end of September has never changed. Fingers crossed it stays there. Anyone else on SoCal order around the same time and have assimilate or different experience?
