    SR Y paper says 2 motors?

    Guessing a lazy person who forgot to change the text. No way they are putting a second motor in the SR.

    Yep they paid me back for my Tesla wall charger a week after I sent them the info. Great people to work with.

    FYI - grid alternatives will pay you back for your home charger that is already installed. Doubtful the labor part can be reimbursed, but they will pay you for the charger. I just submitted my Tesla wall connector bill and they are cutting me a check for 538.36 I will never use the 1000 dollar...

    The Anti-Ceramic coating thread

    Wash my car once a month. Don’t really understand the coating. Every other car I have owned -I have just lived with the paint. Got the same amount back when I traded it in. No one asked me about ceramic coatings when I traded them in. Last car I got back almost the exact sticker price back after...

    From someone who has gone through it. For everyone worrying about having them add the grant in way before you take delivery - so it shows up in your acct. with a 5k deduction. Follow these steps. 1. Get approved and get the letter. 2. Order the car - factor in the 5k grant on your down...

    Clean Vehicle Assistance Program and Tesla

    FYI - 2 months after picking up MY and Tesla still hasn’t sent any proof purchase to CVAP. CVAP is writing me telling me my grant is about to expire and I inform them I purchased the car and they applied the grant. They tell me I should write Tesla to have them send proof. How backwards is it...

    California waiting room Q4

    Q3 delivery here - the real truth 3/4 of California orders will be at the bitter end of the quarter, get ready to get a call late night to pay for your car and pick up the next day. Little to no notice with a 24 hour window to do so. other 1/4 will be trickle in randomly all over the state...

    Think you are referring to the clean energy rebate. Which appears to not have update their model years. So they might not be accepting applications. It requires you buy the car and get the rebate. CVAP is a grant that needs approval before you get a car and applies to purchase price of any EV...

    I think it has to be the Tesla wall connector. They are giving you 2k to cover your cost. More then enough to pay for a wall connector and the wiring if you are going less then 50’. If you are renting you can always take the wall connector with you after and leave a “pigtail” in a box on the...

    Weird update on CVAP grant - Took delivery of a model Y last month and you get another grant for 2k to install a level 2 charger at your house. They instruct you to wait 30 days from delivery to contact the charger people. So 30 days pass and I write the Ev charger grant people, they say they...

    Frunk delivered dented

    I fear having to open the MY frunk closing it is an adventure in delicate pressure. I have had to reopen and close as it doesn’t suck down. My M3 is much stiffer and seems normal to close.

    Need to pay a new order fee if rejected previous one?

    To get my model 3 - I paid 3 separate order fees. First original order, second they lowered the price of the car, but would not adjust. Then third I found a car in stock same color but with upgraded wheels and they wouldn’t let me transfer order with aero wheels. It was wait another 3 weeks or...

    If you have a VIN but won't let you get a quote the workaround is Call - 1-844-34-TESLA Then give them your VIN you can get a quote or get insurance for me I guesstimated my pick up date. It will magically show up in your tesla acct that you couldn't click. I was off by one day so I started...

    California waiting room Q3

    Tesla need to work on the online delivery notification system backend after this quarter. I have never been so exhausted. Fix this and you could push out a 1/4 more cars to the people who want them. I went to bed Sunday(after being on the phone with them till 11pm) thinking the car would...

    California waiting room Q3

    I paid. I was about to rent a car and then drive up and then have to drop the rental car off/get gas then uber from the san jose rental car to tesla. It ended up near the same price to do a straight shot. Also I never have to go to a gas station again.

    California waiting room Q3

    Just back from my whirlwind unscheduled pick up and $130 Uber to Tesla Fremont with a 4 year old in tow. Super easy pick up had the AC blasting 30 mins before pick up to really test it. Was +100F in the parking lot and it was chilly in the car. Car was literally just built it still had...

    California waiting room Q3

    Driving them back to town would seriously be a hassle 45 mins each way to depending on the tourist I get trapped behind. We have a few taxis that can be called from Post Ranch inn or Ventana. So far no actual confirmation on delivery. So in the span of 12 hours the delivery section went from...

    California waiting room Q3

    I got a text (from the normal boiler plate text number but this time it was a real person) to confirm my insurance and when I told them I had Tesla insurance. I got a call maybe 10 minutes later from them asking for my down payment. It was a 510 number Fremont. Literally was doing paperwork at...

    California waiting room Q3

    An intern is going to drive 5 hours round trip for one car? You can’t even call an Uber out here. Tesla is burning the midnight oil. Literally just got off the phone with Fremont factory and just plopped down a huge chunk of change for down payment.

    This is crazy. I literally live an hour from anything(cell phone signal, stores, uber) and I'm 2.5 hours from the factory. I don't know how its getting here. Tesla chat just confirmed...

    California waiting room Q3

    So I got this in my Tesla acct just now. Does this mean they are shipping the car down to me? Delivery Appointment Sept. 28, 2020 at 12:00 AM Fremont - Direct Delivery

    California waiting room Q3

    So interesting fact - I have 53,000 VIN but no delivery appointment. I reached out to Tesla and my car is still being built. I guess VIN numbers don't really correlate with build date. So you really can't judge VIN ranges and what your seeing in terms of other VINs in your range.

    California waiting room Q3

    Where did you find a Tesla finance number? Having a similar problem and all the numbers I’ve found kick me to Tesla brick and mortar location. Then I’m told my info is being forwarded on...then nothing.

    Tesla Changed Loan Last Minute

    Tesla generally doesn't finance the state taxes and fees. You should have been paying that no matter what. Was that included in your loan?

    Clean Vehicle Assistance Program and Tesla

    Delivery at some point this upcoming week most likely. The issue is it’s a new program and it’s so limited in scope that Tesla hasn’t had much experience with it at the multitude of Tesla service centers. I don’t fault them. I just have to work a bit to get them to figure it out. Worst case...

    Clean Vehicle Assistance Program and Tesla

    Keep on them. It's the only way. I plan on spending the majority of tomorrow making sure they fix this on my acct. before I pick up my car. You can pay via personal check on delivery day rather than wire transfer.

    California waiting room Q3

    Confirmed factory pick up via tesla chat and TA. Tesla is 100% not driving my car down to Big Sur. I literally live in the middle of the woods.

    Clean Vehicle Assistance Program and Tesla

    So the VIN just got added to my accountant and in turn the grant was taken off the acct. I am imagining it something to do with the VIN getting added and how new the program is. Anyone else successfully complete a purchase with the grant yet?

    Ode to joy. VIN 53800 Fremont pick up ordered 8/8 msm/black/19” Now waiting on delivery. It was a combo of asking my TA everyday for the past week for updates.

    Keep us updated interested to see how they handle it. It's been a struggle as the program is so new.

    I don’t know how you’re coaxing this info out of them? If I got told this I’d feel somewhat better about my current wait.

    California waiting room Q3

    Its raining VINs for everyone, but me.... I can't get a straight answer out of anyone at Tesla. Tomorrow I will be officially over the Tesla 3-7 week estimate on my account. when I ordered on 8/8 MSM/black/19" and completed all info same day. Just stuck waiting....

    California waiting room Q3

    Just call Tesla insurance. Give them your vin and they will do a quote via the phone. It will get added to your car. Tesla insurance is the cheapest. My M3 is half the price from my previous insurance at the same coverage.

    California waiting room Q3

    Oddly the person directly above me in the spreadsheet with the same exact order, same area for pick up, got a VIN today and is picking up Friday and I'm just in a holding pattern. Canceling plans this week and next. As it appears I'll have a limited amount of time to get the car before it goes...

    Tesla site down

    Very very slow to update. I can still remotely lock my car/pop the trunk in my driveway. Took a drive earlier and its fine. Just taking forever to load the info mileage/climate temp. via the app.

    Tesla site down

    I can access my M3 via the app - painfully slow today to get the car to wake up to warm up my car. I get the Tesla landing page then every other page refuses to load. Minus the Tesla shop.

    How quickly must financing be arranged?

    The $100 deposit will do nothing to your credit score.

    How quickly must financing be arranged?

    You can select cash and complete all steps then when car is ready switch back over to Tesla loan/Third party. Depending on location the Tesla loan is only good for 30/60 days once you accept terms. So you could end up have to ding your credit score again if the car doesn't arrive in a timely...

    California waiting room Q3

    I spoke with my TA yesterday. Just missed switching over to black/black/20" that someone couldn't take. Basically he said the factory is pumping out cars for Fremont delivery, but he has no idea on timeline on my car being built. He said it could be one week or two.

    California waiting room Q3

    Ordered the same day. My only theory is I’m out in the woods with no cell service. Maybe the text was lost to the ether...WiFi calling doesn’t always work.

    August/September VIN Notifications and Deliveries

    They want you take delivery of the car before the 30th end of Q3. Consider yourself lucky, I am 2 months in waiting for the same car and I'm 60 miles from the factory and can't even get an update or a date I can pick up the car.
