    I'm a dealer and Tesla removed my car's FSD

    No significant updates from the one I passed 6 months ago. Manheim denied my arbitration and the local Tesla SC wouldn't help either. As far as I'm concerned, the FSD is gone. I think this post clearly demonstrates the confusion and lack of trust Tesla has developed because of this issue. Its...

    Selling my Founders Roadster Referral Reservation with 10% discount

    Any update on what happened with this reservation?

    Phone connected but not auto-unlocking

    I've noticed that in Android 12 I can't allow the Tesla app to always have location access. All I can select are "while using the app." Verifying the location access is set to "always allow" was a suggestion from a Tesla tech. I'm having this same problem with one of my Tesla Model Y...

    Model Y DIY Xpel Ultimate PPF

    Where to buy bulk PPF film? I'm into my second Y (still finishing up wrapping the first 😅)

    Just received Xpel Full Front PPF Kit

    Is this bumper, hood and fenders/mirrors?

    Recent MYP Delivery Estimates

    I purchased an inventory new MYP in Honolulu. They're pushing for me to take delivery for EOQ but I'm not sure I'll be able to financially square the corner. What happens to my deposit if I can't come up with the money this week?

    Model Y DIY Xpel Ultimate PPF

    Boy.. I oh you guys an update! Life has gotten in the way of this project. I was successful on my hood and front fenders. Then I ran out of time and haven't been able to do the rest of the car. I'm going to do a panel or two again this weekend. After that, I'll reassess when I'm ever going to...

    I'm a dealer and Tesla removed my car's FSD

    I won't get into the specifics of what my "paperwork" said to help avoid saying something wrong if I do decide to pursue legal recourse. My arbitration claim was denied despite a pretty significant effort on my part. Manheim auto auction claims they are not responsible. They see FSD as a...

    I'm a dealer and Tesla removed my car's FSD

    This vehicle had FSD enabled when I previewed the car. I sat in the car and verified it. After the sale, Tesla reverted it back to standard AP.

    I'm a dealer and Tesla removed my car's FSD

    This is not correct. The only way a vehicle "loses FSD" is if Tesla regains possession and decides to remove it. If a vehicle is traded into any other dealer, FSD will transfer to the next buyer. Maybe this whole policy backfires on Tesla. Now so many people are confused and think FSD is...

    I'm a dealer and Tesla removed my car's FSD

    Incorrect. Reread my post. While I agree with you on your entire first paragraph, that's not what Tesla is doing! They are presenting the car for sale with FSD enabled, then after the sale they disable it. I did not base this on a VIN search. If Tesla wants to remove FSD and resell, yes they...

    Door handle not presenting when touched, failed pressure sensor?

    $300 is not bad. Btw, I have since discovered that the pressure switch is a separate switch at the base of the handle. I have yet to see a replacement for this switch offered aftermarket.

    Model Y reservation for sale

    The price did not go up when we changed the buyer info. They also told me any changes and the price would probably go up. I was curious what would happen if I refused delivery and they didn't have another MY SR in my configuration. Fortunately, my car was super clean and I was very happy with it.

    Model Y reservation for sale

    I purchased my Model Y this way a month ago. It was actually way easier than anyone here has offered. The vehicle stayed attached to the original buyers Tesla account, but she was able to update all the buyer information to be mine for sale and registration. All the paperwork was in my name...

    I'm a dealer and Tesla removed my car's FSD

    There are other stories like this one but as a dealer I wanted to share a unique, negative experience I'm having. My very small dealership purchased a 2018 Tesla Model 3 at Manheim auto auction recently. The vehicle was advertised showing FSD in the images included during the sale. I verified...

    WTB 2015 Rear Bumper Cover, with autopilot

    Willing to cover shipping to 96744 Looking for a rear bumper cover for a 2014-2016 that includes the holes for AP sensors. Would prefer one in blue with minimal damage but if not I can arrange to have it painted.

    Salvaged Tesla with no Keys

    I'm glad you shared that info. Thank you. Have you driven a Tesla before? Do you see the park and drive great selectors showing up on your center display when you put your foot on the brake? What happens if you try to shift into drive? I noticed a similar symptom on a wrecked model 3...

    Model Y DIY Xpel Ultimate PPF

    I purchased a complete car kit for my brand new 2021 Model Y from Opus Premium Films. The film arrived last Friday so I started installing this weekend. I figured I'd start a thread to discuss the trials and terrors that are sure to follow as I learn how to install this material. I have no...

    Xpel Ultimate Plus + top coat protection?

    Hard to refute that logic. This is the way, I expect this is what I'll do once I get the PPF wrap complete.

    Salvaged Tesla with no Keys

    Any updates on this? I agree that I don't understand the difficulty. If the OP has app access, it seems they could select CONTROLS and then enable keyless driving. Most of the complaints of buying at auction and not having a key involve also not having app access (no title, no ability to prove...

    Xpel Ultimate Plus + top coat protection?

    Wow, thank you for the great background and differences. I didn't realize ceramic was so unforgiving. I am currently in the process of installing PPF DIY. Once I'm done, I plan to cover with a ceramic coating or spray. I'll give this discussion and ceramic sprays another look. I don't have a...

    Another PPF question

    Yeah, I realize they are not the same thing. My point was that removing PPF from a damaged panel seems pretty easy compared to paint prep/work. I wouldn't think an auto-body shop would "hate PPF." Anyone know if ceramic coatings make it more difficult to blend / feather paint work? I've heard...

    Xpel Ultimate Plus + top coat protection?

    I was originally thinking I would do ceramic coating on top of my Xpel Ultimate PPF. Do you suggest one of the sealants you've listed here instead?

    PPF Recommendation

    Thank you for this write up. Based on your recommendations and some other stellar reviews I read online, I took the plunge and ordered the full PPF kit for my Model Y. It will probably take a week or two to arrive and then I'll carve out some time to get to work. I'll post back with questions...

    Another PPF question

    FWIW, I'm in the same boat. I had a walk through explanation from a very reputable shop in town. His words were "auto body shops hate ceramic." I would expect the PPF could be removed and then reapplied later. Maybe it is the ceramic that makes small paint repair more difficult. I also have...

    Windshield protection

    I'm also going to try C-Bond nanoshield on my new Model Y. Interesting idea regarding PPF. I haven't heard of that being used on a windshield but I haven't looked into it.

    Door handle not presenting when touched, failed pressure sensor?

    Thanks. I'm out of warranty, unfortunately. Did your handle just stop presenting as I described? Or did you have another type of problem? Do you know if Tesla simply replaced the handle assembly, or repaired you existing handle? These are one of the most common things to break on the Model S...

    Door handle not presenting when touched, failed pressure sensor?

    Has anyone purchased and replaced the pressure sensor on their Model S door handles? I see almost no discussion regarding the pressure sensor. It appears this is not the normal microswitch that fails, nor is the broken paddle. The front door handles on my 2015 P85D do not present when they are...

    EV Tuning Door switch broke in under a year

    My handle presents but is not opening the door. I disassembled to replace this wire again. Did I mess up the wire routing? I'm surprised since this upgrade is supposed to last longer than the factory wires. Installed the wiring harness and door paddle in May 2020. I actually only needed to...

    SR Model Y 7 seater waiting room

    There is a SR in Midnight silver for $43.9k available right now. I was refreshing for a while to get a glimpse of what they're selling for. I guess I wanted to see the $2k price hike for myself... Still considering taking this person's reservation...

    SR Model Y 7 seater waiting room

    Anyone have an opinion on me buying someone's reservation for a SR Y for $500? Delivery is in about a week, so I wouldn't get any say in the feature set. Seems like a lot of cash for a reservation that will probably go to waste. But then again, the demand for Model Y is so high right now...

    Standard Range in Existing Inventory all over U.S.

    When was that? According to our local SA it can be done. I'm currently being told I have the option to pay for it under the other buyer's account, with my registration data. Alternatively, apparently I can pay an extra $100 reservation fee and then the SA can transfer the car to mine.

    Standard Range in Existing Inventory all over U.S.

    Did the price increase go into effect after this post? Or are some existing inventory cars being offered at a lower price? I have someone offering me their MY reservation with delivery in two weeks. The price is locked in at $39,990. Considering paying him $500 for the reservation...

    Wiki Consolidated eMMC Thread (MCU repair) (Black Center Screen)

    I had my P85D looked at by the Honolulu Tesla SC a few weeks ago to see about eMMC / daughter board replacement. BL - They kept the car for several days, gave me a rental car, and "erased some data" to improve eMMC functionality. I actually received a phone call from Tesla the day of my...

    IC replacement not working

Anyone seen this happen before? He initially tried swapping the IC without disconnecting the HV, but even after removing...

    Aftermarket white seat covers

    These are the seat covers I purchased and am installing on my White Model 3 today. I bought from Amazon warehouse for about $200 and they came in great shape. I would definitely recommend if you want seat covers. The fitment is outstanding and you can customize the look of your interior. I did...

    Help determining P85D Value

    Thanks guys. I've had limited experience selling here in Hawaii. In general cars that are below $20k sell for about a 10% premium here, again a huge estimate. Of course, its all about supply and demand, and in Hawaii both are very low! I believe I'm the only P85D or P90D being sold on island...

    Taking delivery of Model Y Red after 3 days placing order

    I'm in Hawaii and I have seen half a dozen Model Y's. They're out there and I certainly wouldn't get too overly worried. But previous commentors are correct, show up ready knowing what to look for. If you're happy with the car, then ENJOY THE ROAD!!

    Busting 2 myths about saving money when home charging in Hawaii

    This is what I need! I'm in the market for a home, so if you ever decide to sell....!! But we have had great success with the far less awesome TOU being offered now. We charge our two Tesla's between 9-5pm and save anywhere from $50-150 a month.
