    Have Gone Through 2 Tesla Gen 3 Home Chargers

    Seems like issues with the wallchargers are related to incorrect installations. I was lucky to have just upgraded my house's system a few years back, and having a pro electrician do my wall unit install ($1500) was spendy but no issues

    Gen 3 Wall Connector: New 24 foot cable version available now: can we upgrade?

    Got my Gen 3 connector installed in May with 18 feet... and it sucks for my driveway. Any way to upgrade to the new 24 foot cable version?

    Full PPF or Front PPF and Full Ceramic Coating?

    It just protects the paint from rock chips and what not. I've had my Model 3 for a few months now and the PPF has already done its job.... and I have to replace it lolol. Lots of highway construction in summer apparently. It's a bigger issue for older Model 3s with thinner paint, but newer...

    Spotify loading endlessly

    Make sure your volume is up, I couldn't get spotify to play this morning and that was my issue. Hopefully I don't deal with loading problems you guys are talking about

    Full PPF or Front PPF and Full Ceramic Coating?

    I'd recommend just getting PPF on the front bumper, hood, and fender I did my whole car, but I did it myself... which is kind of a mistake. PPF application is an artisan skill, and after 30 hours (and back pain) invested into it, I would have just paid someone else to professionally PPF only...

    RPM Tesla Wind Noise Reduction Kit

    I bought these but never installed them: don't think they are needed IMHO

    Tire Tread Life vs. Your Driving Style

    I was advised by a pal to get my brand new (05/21) LRAWD aligned ASAP. Car drove straight, but felt squirrelly. Tesla confirmed and did a wheel alignment, found the toe to be out of spec and fixed it right up. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure: if I had blown though my tires...

    Worn Suspension Bushing at 800 miles?

    okie dokie, I'll just get it inspected by the service center to make sure

    Worn Suspension Bushing at 800 miles?

    Has anyone else noticed possibly premature bushing wear on their suspension? I was looking at possibly upgrading my suspension with MPP parts, but rolling underneath my car I saw these tears in the rubber! I've scheduled a service appointment in the app for inspection and possible replacement...

    Geico = gouge-co

    There is no benefit for customer loyalty in the car insurance business it would seem. I've had maxed out Geico coverage for 15 years, and adding the Tesla to my coverage with 7 year old truck shot my rate up to 1900/6 months. I got a quote from Progressive and pretty much immediately executed...

    Help! How to reinstall driver side trim?

    So I was installing aftermarket "cool guy" pedals on my LR AWD, and I adjusted my seat all the way back for easy access. Forgot to restore settings, and when I got into my car, my big fat ass (6'2", 180) knocked the trim on the driver side pillar loose. No idea how to get it back, and I've...

    Paint protection film

    It's a weak spot for most vehicles, my truck is super dinged up down there for some reason, and a lot of cars come from the factory with PPF there now. Since it's a flat area, it's a super easy spot to install PPF, with the operative word being "install". Installation is a bit of a process...

    I finally found roof shades that for M3 2021!

    I just got mine for my 05/21 production M3, and like people are saying... the fit is not perfect, it bows slightly. It'll work, but if you're the OCD type it ain't for you

    How much PPF did you get?

    Today I did the last component on my first pass at completely PPF wrapping my car: the rear bumper. After all the pain and suffering of wrapping the hood, front bumper, doors, rocker panels, trunk... looks like I've finally learned enough to do an A- level install. Nearly perfect! I'm glad...

    How much PPF did you get?

    I'm dealing with PPF installation right now, and let me say that PPF is kicking my ****ing ass. I like to think that I'm skilled with my hands, work with tools all the time, and am all around a handy person... but yeah, PPF installation is definitely a very specialized, acquired skill, and when...

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    Yeah, my other car is a Nissan Frontier truck, so I'm really enjoying this. First things 1. Gonna wash and de-iron the paint when I get home 2. Emailed local race car alignment joint everyone recommends to get an appointment 3. Gonna install PPF film on the car this weekend

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    Just to update everyone: got my Tesla today, and it's the first time I've ever driven a Tesla. Took me a bit before really getting the hang of it, definitely changed the handling to "roll" to more mimic traditional manual transmission cars I am used to. I am really enjoying the face melting...

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    For everyone new here, just remember that your location SA probably has a better idea of what's going on. Turns out the whole "ignore the website, you're probably getting yours in June due to deliveries during the quarter" thing my SA said a few weeks back is looking to be accurate

    Wiki Model 3 Order Tracking Spreadsheet

    Today they pulled my dates outright. Ordered LR AWD on 4/1, yesterday was May 18 - June 07, now it's the generic "1-13 weeks after delivery" Ugh the waiting game sucks!

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    As I understand it, this is a weird quirk of the Tesla business model. Other brands will send their cars to the dealership, and the dealership will correct and fix adjustments before putting the cars on the lot and selling them. Just today driving around Redmond WA, I noticed a BMW M4 with its...

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    I've already ordered my floor mats, pre-cut PPF, practiced my polishing skills on my beat up old truck, bought stainless steel brake lines and suspension parts from MPP, and had an electrician install a home charger hahaha. Oh yeah, sold my daily driver Subaru for the down payment too. Would...

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    WA, my Tesla Advisor let me know to ignore what the website says, noting that Washington dealers/service centers generally get their shipments end of the quarter, ugh. Ordered 4/1/21, hoping I don't end up waiting the full 3 months

    Wiki Model 3 Order Tracking Spreadsheet

    Ordered my Tesla (Blue LR AWD) on 4/1/21, and the delivery time frame changes every day. Currently saying May 12-June 01, hoping it's more along the May time frame haha
