    New Model S Plaid/LR. whistling wind noise at 79+ MPH

    That's what I'm starting to wonder. It feels like it's from the rear, but it's high-pitched so it's possible my perception of it is just wrong. My next step will be to get a passenger or two and have them sit in the back seat and see if I'm right/wrong. How did you figure out that was the...

    New Model S Plaid/LR. whistling wind noise at 79+ MPH

    That's awesome. They just spent a week getting the rear glass re-aligned (cut it out and re-adjusted it), and the noise is still there. They didn't do anything to the trunk itself allegedly, but the service guy did visually inspect everything and didn't notice an issue. Back to the drawing...

    19" tires on Plaid and LR

    Yeah it annoyed me because Tesla is so hands-off with everything. Just use the app, it'll be fine. No need to look the car over, you can just let us know after. Then I ask about something they told me verbally, and suddenly they want documentation. I have none because when I asked over text my...

    Plaid Impressions, Road Noise & Real Solutions

    3dB shouldn't be that much of a difference, but the difference in frequency of the noise could make it seem better/worse. The car is definitely not quiet, and it's a shame ANC hasn't been released yet so we could get some real reviews about how effective it is. My understanding is that tires...

    New Model S Plaid/LR. whistling wind noise at 79+ MPH

    Ha yeah, that showed up in my recommended after the other one so I watched it. I'm down to do that but would need to find a space + buy an air compressor. That'll be my plan after ther service center trip disappoints in 2 weeks..

    New Model S Plaid/LR. whistling wind noise at 79+ MPH

    Interesting... The trunk was actually poorly done, so I adjusted it following the rule the guy used in the second video. It feels more secure now and even looks more even, but the wind noise is still there fully. I tried clicking on biohazard mode while it was on, and I think it cut down on...

    New Model S Plaid/LR. whistling wind noise at 79+ MPH

    I tried taping up various areas back there with no luck. I did the trunk window, the right side of the trunk, the entire rear right door, the window on that door. I haven't done anything forward of that, or the entire trunk itself. It's hard to test unless I make a day of it....need to be...

    19" tires on Plaid and LR

    Thanks--yeah I used a mobile tire guy and it was ~$127, but they also got me an extra $120 total off of the Tirerack price I was about to pay. So net gain and they came and did it in my driveway.

    19" tires on Plaid and LR

    Just to follow-up, I took delivery in LA and they gave me summers. They had verbally told me that it would come with all-seasons, so I made a service request. 1 week before (1 month after delivery) they asked for documentation which I didn't have obviously, so they rejected it and said my car...

    New Model S Plaid/LR. whistling wind noise at 79+ MPH

    Any updates on this? I have the exact same thing it seems... Rear passenger/trunk area Definitely 83+, sometimes 79+ No obvious sources so I'll start taping up areas I guess..

    2021 MS 19” Tempest Delivery Tracking

    What's everyone thinking with the front license plate mount? Mine requires it, but I'd rather get a vent-mounted one later or something that is less....large. I have to decide soon so I can remove it before ceramic coat time. Not sure there's a vent-mount holder out yet, or if there will be for...

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    The refresh seats are actually weird to me. They feel comfortable, but are definitely not as squishy as my Model 3. I want to say they're more comfortable, but it's hard to identify why. I think a combination of the ventillation + width and sides is probably why. Re: the wrinkles: I have...

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    My delivery specialist heavily emphasized that I had "100 miles" to report any issues. He also said time didn't matter (although yeah, the 24 hour rule sounds like the way to go for me). Not sure if this varies by area, but this was also different from my past deliveries. Your best bet is to...

    2021 MS 19” Tempest Delivery Tracking

    Keep an eye out, they might text you again and do it even sooner if it gets there early. I had mine scheduled for 2 days after arrival, then they texted me and tried to get me to pick it up within hours of it getting off the truck.

    Wiki Mega-consolidated delivery quality issues thread and checklist

    Yeah I'm not sure what that's about, I suspect it's just becuase people hear stories about horrendous QA and poor customer service. Generally Tesla has been good to me, but I did have a few clashes with them in the past when they didn't fix stuff promised. Ex: paint peeled off my front bumper...

    Wiki Mega-consolidated delivery quality issues thread and checklist

    I took delivery in Cali and got the ppf on the rear door, but no flaps. If there were a region that would not qualify for all seasons then it'd be California, but I still would've preferred reliable communication about it or god forbid, an option. Pretty sure right now it's just random, LR's...

    Wiki Mega-consolidated delivery quality issues thread and checklist

    My delivery experience to hopefully comfort some people... With touchless you do have time to use the full checklist, but I was too excited and have had 2 deliveries in the past without issues so I winged it. I basically took the checklist (thanks for making it!), cut it down to the issues I...

    Wiki Mega-consolidated delivery quality issues thread and checklist

    Yeah that looks very similar, I wonder how they messed that up. Let me know what you end up hearing! I submitted a service request with a few notes to document issues, but it's not for a month and last time they didn't read my notes until 4 days before. So I probably won't have any more to add...

    Wiki Mega-consolidated delivery quality issues thread and checklist

    Took delivery and there are a bunch of wrinkles in the back seat. I don't care that's how the rear seat on my Model 3 looked after a couple years of very, very light use anyway. Has anyone had that? Wondering if it's worth asking them about. Everything else is great minus a few of the...

    2021+ Model S LR Delivery Tracking

    There's that long checklist you can use, but really you want to just check for any external issues right away. Any scratches, paint issues, the type of stuff you want them to note ASAP. You have 100 miles after delivery to report stuff.

    2021 MS 19” Tempest Delivery Tracking

    My SA (I know, I know) said the waves of S's coming out at the end of the year and early next year are using a 'new chip', so Tesla could also still be in the middle of massive transitions. Or my SA could've been making stuff up, who knows.

    2021+ Model S LR Delivery Tracking

    The model year will affect depreciation a bit, but if you're selling it privately down the road then "refreshed Model S" is going to be the bigger headline. As long as they don't have some QoL changes in the middle of 2022, but I'm betting they're not touching this car for a while. If...

    2021 MS 19” Tempest Delivery Tracking

    The only ones I know that exist are the Tesla store ones (which are probably rebranded Weathertech mats). I'd put in an order for those now unless delivery is a ways off and you can wait for other brands to pop up on Amazon. Model S All-Weather Interior Mats

    2021 MS 19” Tempest Delivery Tracking

    Interestingly, I changed delivery of my RN1149 order from Utah to LA, and the date shifted from Sept 9-29 to Sept 20-30. It's been holding steady there. I asked an SA about the expected date and they casually said "looks like it's scheduled to be built in the middle of september, so expect...

    19" tires on Plaid and LR

    So it definitely looks like the plaid 19's are summer tires, but what about the LR? Haven't seen anyone post with that on there. My SA seemed to think they were all seasons, but we all know what that's worth..

    Looking for thoughts on Model S LR (refresh) vs. M3P

    I've been eyeing the S since the refresh tease early this year, but having never driven a post-2016 S, I'm not sure what to expect compared to my M3P. I love the sportiness of the M3P, and don't really want to lose much of that, but the quality of life changes in the S seem appealing. I do a lot...

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    Anyone take delivery with the tempest wheels? Do those have all-seasons on it already or are they summers? Planning out if I need to go ahead and shop around for a winter set of tires if I do actually take delivery in the next month.

    Model 3 trade to Refreshed Model S poll….

    Also intersted in info on this. I like the sportiness of the 3 but do a lot of road trips and was wondering if the updated S is noticeably better. I'm assuming it's a bit quieter and more comfortable, but how much so? The active noise cancellation on the S sounds like it'll probably be cool. The...

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    Just wondering--are you thinking the plaid+ will be re-released in a year or two? It'd be cool if they do, but it seems like they'd name change it or something to differentiate (and for PR, not that they focus on that much).

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    Based on the flyover today it does look like they've made some in the past few days. They also moved some out for demos/drive offs during the event, so they probably made another 50-100 in the past 2 days. Can't track them all, but guessing they're just doing plaids now. The real question is...

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    If all S's in existence are either in Fremont or that lot right outside, then they probably have something like: External lot: ~500 LR's Fremont dirt road: ~70 Plaids (new as of ~3 days ago) Fremont lot near dirt road ~60 Plaids (new as of ~3 days ago) Fremont big sectioned off lot next to...

    Actually the dirt road is maxed and has 60+ S's. The lot next to it has also about 50 or more. So maybe more like 150 produced in a couple of days assuming they have some parked randomly elsewhere. No S's in logistics, so not sure what their plan is. The window is closing rapidly for end of...

    Another Gabe flyover this morning, what a champion. The fremont lots with S's before appears to have been refilled (including the dirt strip by the train tracks), so finally seeing some production. I think they all have spoilers on them, so looks like they're just pumping out plaids? Or maybe...

    New Gabe video, flyover of that temporary lot they've been moving S's too. Came out June 6th on Patreon, so should be open on Youtube tomorrow (support his Patreon, he's providing us the only real news here lmao). There appear to be a ton of LR's there, unless they're going to go back and add...

    All we can do is speculate based on Gabe's flyovers. S's have been moved around, but there's not an obvious increase in the # of S's.

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    I'm betting they won't assign any until a couple of days before the event. Makes me wonder if they didn't already allocate them or secretly assign VINs, just aren't posting them. They've been shipping some S's out of the factory, but it's unclear how many are actually going anywhere--a ton just...

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    I wanted the event sooner so we could actually see some proof of them delivering a new S in 2021, but it's not the worst thing. They're still manufacturing them at a decent rate, so the delivery curve if they had the event on the 3rd probably won't shift that much. Chances are the vast majority...
