    Calling all owners of a Black Model 3 ( Black Knights) Build Thread...

    @IAmNotARoleMdl how much in the end did all the after-market mods run you for? looks awesome!

    What's your reasoning behind your color choice.

    Are you planning to do any after-market modifications to your silver metallic? I have one too, but have no ideas to personalize it. Chrome deleting would look off on these color, I think

    What is best financing rate now?

    Anyone have a couple CU's that have an option to get a pre-approval?(soft-pull on credit) Want to see how likely it is for myself to get individually approved for a loan. Thanks!

    @T3slaMecca Can you give me a quick list of CU's that have pre-approvals available?(soft pulls) just to see what rates I could be looking at based on my situation! Thanks

    Let's talk financing rates

    From somewhere I read that if you open lines of credit, make a purchase on them, pay it off, and never using it again (shredding the credit card and not closing the account) helps boost credit score. Not sure if this is true, but could be similar if it is

    I assume you're financially stable/well-off to be able to get approved over the phone + very low rate + $0 down?

    Ceramic Coat a new Model 3?

    You could try going for only a partial PPF, just depends on what you're willing to spend or what you actually want. In my situation, I'd only go with max a partial ppf and maybe DIY ceramic coat

    Switching interior color after delivery schedule e-mail?

    I placed my order last night, feeling pressured because of the fact that Tesla is getting rid of the color I wanted for a while now, so I went ahead and ordered it (silver metallic), but uhhh.... I'd rather not take delivery of my vehicle for a couple months like November-ish, due to my...

    @voip-ninja Is this the same for a secured loan? or does the lienholder send the loan amount to the dealer and we are in charge of giving an additional check/deposit to Tesla for the remaining amt?

    Take delivery in Fremont in cash. Pay now on website or ACH there?

    I just placed my order as well. If I’m going to be financing, should I be applying for loans right now even though my loan amount isn’t 100% confirmed since I don’t know specifically my total price of the car? I am expecting delivery late-September. And with any financing, I am going to be...

    Price of DM increased again, this time to $6,000

    wait a minute... they're getting rid of silver metallic?!?!?! when does it officially go away? Edit: I'm doing a test config, and still see silver metallic available for $1500

    Let's talk financing rates

    @voip-ninja if I were only able to get a secured loan, should GAP coverage actually be something I should be looking at? Should it be through the CU/bank or in my auto-insurance? Is GAP insurance worth it and how much does it usually cost?

    Home delivery, yea or nay?

    but the thought of having somebody else driving it for a good portion before you actually do :O

    New Model 3 delivery and VIN assignment method

    Yeah, I wouldn't be surprised. I hope that I don't end up getting a car that's been sitting for months without an owner.

    New Model 3 delivery and VIN assignment method

    You know what, I just checked my configuration on Tesla, and they updated the LR RWD configuration to "delivery within 4 weeks" instead of the "~2-4months" that used to be there! ONLY for the RWD model though Edit: the performance model is now sitting at "delivery within 2 months" for me as...

    New Model 3 delivery and VIN assignment method

    welp.... Then I'm not sure what happens after that. I assume they'll just put me back in the pool of available cars that fit my build and then contact me again once one becomes available?

    @mcbarnet007 did you manage to ask them?

    New Model 3 delivery and VIN assignment method

    Where were you planning on getting the ppf from? I’ve gotten quotes for multiple locations, was just curious where you were gonna go to. Tint as well! Lol and I’m also on the fence about whether the ppf people should do the ceramic coat or whether I should do it. If I decide and do it myself we...

    New Model 3 delivery and VIN assignment method

    For a fellow Tesla buyer, do you mind asking your delivery specialist how long you'd possibly be able to delay your delivery? I want to place an order for a model 3 RWD soon (to make sure I receive 100% of the $7500 tax incentive), but I wouldn't able to drive it until December/November-ish due...

    On the fence: AWD or RWD

    I noticed you're in San Jose as well! Have you had any post-delivery work on your car done?

    On the fence: AWD or RWD

    @Gavyne well, I can't say I can echo your sentiment because I haven't had my hands on an AWD car yet and have nothing to compare the RWD drive to aside from the ones I've driven so far. So I think RWD suits me the best in this case hahaha
  33. H

    On the fence: AWD or RWD

    yeah it's $5500 for post-delivery add-on until the 24th of this month, from what I remember
  34. H

    On the fence: AWD or RWD

    I am thinking about getting it, but I think I'll be okay without it for the time being. $1K additional to add it on later isn't too bad, just imo
  35. H

    On the fence: AWD or RWD

    I think I'm leaning more towards the RWD. Range and efficiency doesn't matter to myself all that much and the added traction wouldn't either as I'd be in San Jose doing mostly around the city driving/highway. Also, if I really wanted white seats, I could just upgrade with tsportline white seat...
  36. H

    On the fence: AWD or RWD

    So, I'm in a pickle. I don't know whether I want the RWD or AWD more. I've heard the AWD gets just a little less range than the RWD, and therefore might be a little less efficient, but I'm also really tempted by the white seats that the AWD offers as well as the added traction/handling. I just...

    New Rear Emblem.... love it!

    I’m interested in installing this on my silver metallic model 3. But would the matte black emblem look better or the chrome? I’m not too sure

    What is best financing rate now?

    There’s a local CU by me, and they have rates starting at 2.49% for new auto loans up to 72 months, and they offer 1/4% off for just applying online, and another 1/4% if you have a “secure online checking account” with them. Best case scenario, I could get approved for their lowest rate loan...

    If anyone wants Painted Calipers for only $450 in the Bay Area this shop did a decent job

    Tragic. Trying to find a store that’ll do some good work but not charge a fortune, in the bay area

    Let's talk financing rates

    if anything, how did you manage to get the CU you used to put all the necessary information in the pre-approval letter? so that Lightstream could rate beat
  47. H

    Let's talk financing rates

    Happy for you man! Curious, what was your specific process? Did you apply for any loan at lightstream and then get approved; then applied at some other CU with a lower APR and get approved there; then... send a rate beat with all the necessary info to Lightstream? @BlackM3

I plan on getting a silver metallic model 3, and was just wondering if I'm on a bit of a budget, but would like to keep my model 3 looking new for as long as possible and stop rock chipping, what kind of things should...
