    Third Party Servicing in Brisbane

    I know, but it'd be nice to have someone confirm that there's say no missing bolts, or abnormal wear visible anywhere, while they check and rotate the tires.

    Third Party Servicing in Brisbane

    Are there any third party mechanics in Brisbane that have experience with EVs, and preferably Teslas? While I haven't had any issues with the car so far, it's about time I got a tyre rotation, and I wouldn't mind using the opportunity for someone else to give it a look over.

    Superchargers in Australia

    As the marker for the supercharger that ended up in Jerry's Plains was originally on Singleton, I'm assuming that it's just showing a central location for the city. I'm not sure where a good location would be, only that it'd be best if easily accessible to people passing through, without having...

    Superchargers in Australia

    The Australian supercharge map is now showing a charger under construction in Brisbane. Given that it has it's own marker, I'm guessing it will be away from the existing service center, but I assume the shown location isn't final as the marker is in the middle of a pedestrian area.

    Tesla Model 3 in Australia

    There seem to be a lot of orders getting queued up for December. Things seem to be getting handled a lot more smoothly than when Tesla pretty much went dark for October.

    Cleaning products and routine for Model 3

    The old car is a 2001 Toyota Seca - While there's probably not much harm I could do to it, there's probably a limit to how clean I can get it. What pressure do you use the pressure washer at? The stories of Model 3 paint coming of under pressure wash have me concerned about accidentally doing...

    Cleaning products and routine for Model 3

    I'll hopefully be getting my Model 3 soon, and as it will be the first new car I buy, I'm wanting to take a bit more care of it, and make sure I'm cleaning it properly. I'm wondering what cleaning products people have been using on their cars, and what regularity they clean. There's likely...

    Are you in Sydney? From reviewing our limited dataset in the survey responses, the only people I could see who got cars without reservations was in Sydney during the end of quarter rush. If so, there just may not have been any other people in Sydney with an order for that exact configuration who...

    Did you have a delivery date, or had just been told to expect delivery sometime in October?

    I always get a little terrified whenever someone mentions upgrading to a Blue P3-, as my delivery is supposed to be less than a week away.

    I It's also possible to look at the product-finalize page before it starts redirecting you there, you just have to enter in the URL. I've had a hidden VIN there even before a delivery date was arranged.

    What colour did you order?

    Ouch. That's far more than AAMI were quoting me this morning, even including car rental and windscreen cover.

    Wailing wall for Australian Model 3 team VINLess!

    I'd say wait - you might get lucky with a cancellation, or in the next batch. The combination of wrong colour and increased price is quite off putting. They were asking you to lay more for a car you didn't want. After this long, what's an extra few months? Though as I got the upgrade in the...

    It's a free upgrade. I'm not sure if it's something they're just doing for for an early reservation/order, or if they will do it for all LR AWD orders until those cars actually arrive in Australia.
  19. T

    Wailing wall for Australian Model 3 team VINLess!

    Technically my order is for a LR AWD, they're just offering me a P3- instead. I'm curious if they're ever actually going to start shipping LR AWDs to Australia, or if it's just cheaper and easier to upgrade them all to P3-, as performance orders far outnumber the LR AWD ones.

    I got the same call in Brisbane, I'm just skeptical about the 2 week part, but shall see.

    Wailing wall for Australian Model 3 team VINLess!

    Possibly, but by "A couple of weeks" I'm assuming it's just one coming in the next batch, not a fallen through order, and that they're just not bothering actually manufacturing RHD LR AWD.

    Are these cars confirmed, or is this just speculation based on an assumption that full VIN ranges were shipped?

    Those vin listings are for ranges, but we don't know that every car from that range was on that ship.

    It's be nice to know what percentage of people who had been contacted did actually take delivery. The spreadsheet currently shows half contacted, but only a quarter delivered. If we knew what percentage were delivered, we could at least guess how long it will take to get through the backlog.

    Tesla Model 3 in Australia

    I asked about that yesterday, their response was "maybe", and that it was mainly down out of Sydney for end of quarter. I suppose it comes down to when they're actually planning on shipping any LR AWD cars to Australia. There's some Bins assigned, but only for NZ, and I don't think any of them...

    I think you press on the charging rate to change units. Based on the tracking spreadsheet it looks like there's practically no orders scheduled for October yet, so hopefully some more people will start getting vins and calls over the next week.

    What are the differences between the P3- and LR AWD, and how much extra is it costing you?

    Tesla Model 3 in Australia

    For those going through a leasing company - I'm up to "Prepare for Delivery", but I can only enter Delivery Location, not registration or payment method as the sections are locked. Has anyone else leasing had the same experience? Also, anyone else with a LR AWD order gotten a vin or delivery date?

    I'm getting a ceramic coating as part of the lease, but it's the lease company organizing it and I just take it in after I get the car. I have looked at prices for PPF and while it would be nice, it was quite expensive.

    Pepper do Leases? They never mentioned that when they reject my finance application to lack of credit history. Ended up going through my employers novated lease provider.

    Speaking of fast charger availability, hopefully this comes to fruition: https://www.smh.com.au/politics/federal/new-fast-charging-network-for-electric-vehicles-20190825-p52klp.html It'd be great to have national fast charger coverage.

    Interestingly, I edited my order about a week ago and also got that message. I'd understood that delivery time was pushed back for edited orders.
