    20 inch wheels and TPMS

    When I switched out my 21" stagger to 20" straight, I selected 19" on the reset at 42 psi and it worked fine. I recently had a flat and the low tire pressure light stayed on even after the flat repair. I reset the setup and selected 21" and it worked fine as well. So, like Doanster1 said, it...

    Who has had major cosmetic body work done? What was the cost?

    I had the full frontal Xpel treatment with no regrets. I was only doing the front bumper and half hood and fenders but my brother told me to spend the extra to avoid seeing the line on the hood plus the potential discoloration on the paint with and without Xpel. It was a jump from doing the...

    Vendor Tesla Model 3 | DIY Ceramic Coating

    Kenriko, did you use the same microfiber towel to wipe away the coating for the entire car or you had to use several towels? I have heard the dried coating embedded in the towel can scratch the paint. Is it true?

    Battery won’t charge and now it’s totally dead

    I don't know the difference between the gen 1 vs. gen 2 but I bought the wall connector in December 2017 and my MS is a 2016.5 so I would think it is a gen 2?

    Going back to the SC on a flatbed with only 300 miles on it...it was charging for an hour on Sunday night before got the "charging interrupted" error message on the phone. I went to the garage and saw wall connector charger was dead. I reset the circuit breaker and got the wall connector back on...

    Solar Gard Ultra Performance on the tint...I paid $275 on the four windows and $1,000 on the PPF, no ceramic coating. I have Xpel on my MS but I want to go lower budget on the M3 as my wife said she might go back to bimmer after a year or so. I thought the SunTek film is just as good with the...

    Body shop recommendations

    Sorry to see...might want to consider PPF after your repair....you probably will not see any damages if you had PPF installed.

    Texas Hold Up!

    I think your list is outdated...I did my S with ATFCU in Jan this year at 1.99% (got my rate locked in Dec before the FED hiked the rate). The current rate is 2.09%.

    Texas Hold Up!

    I think that's their standard reply...sure sounds better to say "in production" to anxious buyer than say "I don't know" or "they haven't started on your car yet"

    Texas Hold Up!

    Congrats! No luck for me...just checked. When did you configure and order yours?
  39. S

    Texas Hold Up!

    Just called Tesla and they told me my vehicle is still in production and no telling when they will have the VIN for me. When I asked the rep about the 4 weeks lead time as listed on the email, he said to expect 4-6 weeks after configuration instead.
