    Pic of your Model 3.......RIGHT NOW! [model 3 pictures thread]

    Thanks. Yeah, I feel it looks much better. Now that the trim is all black, I don't get why the emblems aren't black to match. The mismatch bugs me too. On my M3P, I blacked them out along with the chrome delete.

    Pic of your Model 3.......RIGHT NOW! [model 3 pictures thread]

    My current Model 3 is a lease so I never took off the badges but they always bugged me, especially when trying to clean the car, always snagging the microfiber towels. I removed them on my new Long Range the day it came home.

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    Does your home integration open/close automatically with the proximity of the phone? I have MyQ setup with mine but been too lazy to integrate it with my alexa. I have my opener in my cubby and just press the button...seems easier. My Model S used to have the auto-close/open, but after it...

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    I'd be happy to. Tell me about it, with this having this performance model the past 3 years, I've punched it at every opportunity...being a lease didn't help, since I wasn't worried about wearing anything out by pushing it all the time. lol

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    You can just ask your SA. That's what I did and he confirmed I would not get the matrix headlights

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    Mine is 297xxx and still didn't come with matrix headlights

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    Anyone thinking of buying the Acceleration Boost? I'm tempted. It will make the transition from my performance model to this less painful. lol

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    For CA folks, don't forget to start your CVRP process after you get your car (if you ordered prior to the 3/15 price hike)

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    Seems to be. I've never been to the location we picked up our car at yesterday and my phone was already connected to their wifi.

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    It's the new Civic it feels like. When I got my first Tesla back in 2015, I was hardly one of the first in the area but people would still stop to ask me questions, and SC spots were mostly empty. How much it has changed in that time. Awesome you got the headlights. I also got Michelin which...

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    Nice, same car as ours and in San Diego too. Did you get Matrix headlights? I was hoping the SA was wrong and ours had it, but it didn't. Not a big deal enough for me to turn down the delivery or anything though. I picked it up at Carlsbad location.

    Ordered M3P coming from FBO E85 Golf R...hope the Model 3 can check the same boxes

    Are you serious that your Golf R can out-accelerate the M3P of 3.1? That's pretty impressive if so. But like you said, not something you'd do very often I assume? (definitely not every light, lol) One thing I found to really enjoy over my past cars like STi's, is that I didn't push it all the...

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    So I was a bit surprised with the LR we picked up yesterday. I was transferring items off our current Model 3 over, and was going to set up the dashcam. In the glovebox, there is already a Tesla thumb drive connected for Sentry/Dashcam. Is this standard? I will probably still replace it with...

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    Ok guys, I picked up my car today as expected. No issues. No Matrix headlights just as SA stated. Not a deal breaker for me as I would probably not notice it much when driving and could care less about a light show. Lol I have 27 days left on lease with my stealth performance. Just...

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    What do you mean by a 'VIN not close to what's going on'? Are you saying a VIN range much lower than what we're actively seeing most people get? If so, what is the current ranges typically seen? I'm a 297xxx.

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    Got asked if I want to pick up sooner so I am picking up my car tomorrow now. Here is run-down: OD: 3/11/22 - Placed order for SR/White/Black/No-FSD/18" EDD: 7/24-8/15 4/18 EDD: 8/17-10/12 5/24 EDD: 9/29-11/24 6/16 Switched to LR 6/17 EDD: 6/19-6/29 6/19: VIN assigned 6/21: Scheduled pickup...

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    I asked my SA about the headlights and was told mine does not have matrix headlights. It seems to just be really random on whether you get them or not? Does anyone else know what all comes with an order placed 3/11? I know I still get the mobile charger. Does it come with floor mats? I...

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    Ok quick update. OD of 3/11/22 for SR, changed to LR on Thursday. EDD changed from 9/29-11/24 to 6/19-6/29. Got VIN assigned today and delivery scheduled for next Saturday. That all went super fast! White/Black, 18”, no FSD

    Is it really 1.5years out?? Or is that supposed to be 2022?

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    So I just posted a few days ago how my OD is 3/11/22 for SR and I switched to LR. My EDD changed to 6/19-6/29 and to my amazement today I got assigned a VIN

    SR/SR+ (Model 3 RWD) Waiting Room

    Congrats. I also just did the same and posted my reasons. With the latest price hike, the price we get (you are even lower than what I pay for LR at $51,990), compared to todays price combined with eligibility of CVRP $2k rebate, it seemed like the better model out of the two to buy now. And...

    SR/SR+ (Model 3 RWD) Waiting Room

    Isn’t the current SR price $46,990? Or are you adding all the taxes, fees, etc in your SR price? Because if I add all those, then with the $2k CVRP discount, it’s like $56k
  24. D

    SR/SR+ (Model 3 RWD) Waiting Room

    They honor it, which was a big reason I finally switched to LR. With the new price hike of LR model, I am buying this LR for $51,990 vs the current price of $57,990. Plus because my order date is 3/11, the MSRP for all Model 3's back then were under the value to qualify for the $2k CVRP...

    SR/SR+ (Model 3 RWD) Waiting Room

    Well, I'm off to LR guys. I switched my order to LR yesterday. My EDD went from 9/29-11/24 down to 6/19-6/29 today. We'll see if that's actually true...

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    I’m an originally SR order placed on 3/11/22. With the LR price hike a few days ago I switched to LR yesterday. My EDD was 9/29-11/24 and this morning it switched to this Sunday - 6/19-6/29. Lol I don’t know if I believe it but we will see

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    @Hiline, I just saw your timeline in sig. I just switched over from SR to LR right now and have an order date of 3/11/22. So this gives me hope! Quick question since you're also in CA. With an order date prior to 3/15 price hike, CVRP is supposed to apply to all model 3 trims. Did you by...
  28. D

    SR/SR+ (Model 3 RWD) Waiting Room

    yeah, I agree with you based on your price you get from your order date. I think I would also do the same. I don't really need the AWD either, but being that I may not keep the Model 3 long term, I think the larger price difference I can get will help me get the most $$$ when I sell it. I...

    SR/SR+ (Model 3 RWD) Waiting Room

    Based on the CVRP site, they make it sound like you can as well: Consumers who ordered a Tesla Model 3 or Tesla Model Y on or before March 15, 2022 are still eligible for a rebate if you meet all other  eligibility requirements. Please note: to be eligible, you must submit a CVRP application...

    SR/SR+ (Model 3 RWD) Waiting Room

    That's what I am confused on as well. From previous posts, what people said, was that the CVRP was based on the base MSRP which back then, all 3 models were under the $45k limit. So technically if that's true, any model we choose (if purchased prior to the 3/15 price hike) should qualify for...

    SR/SR+ (Model 3 RWD) Waiting Room

    Looks like prices increased again on Model 3 for LR. I'm now finally tempted to jump to LR just because of the price difference between new and what I could get it for. I ordered the SR on 3/11 just before the price hike on the 15th. So my SR had base price of $44,990. I believe on the 11th...

    SR/SR+ (Model 3 RWD) Waiting Room

    My EDD is still showing 9/29-11/24. And now today I got an email that my Rivian R1T Has EDD of Sept-Oct. Decisions, decisions… Order date is March 12th.

    2019 M3P 6 Month Review

    Ok, I think that's your problem. I used to use a similar setup, and was having issues with the card getting corrupt and having to re-format every few weeks. Then I found some posts suggesting that it's better to plug in an SSD hard drive. I purchased this but that was over 3 years ago so...

    2019 M3P 6 Month Review

    I've never had an issue with mine in either my Mid Range or my Performance Model 3.

    SR/SR+ (Model 3 RWD) Waiting Room

    Weird, I tried that but it didn’t work. Just redirects to my main page with cars listed (including this order and cyber truck order)
  36. D

    SR/SR+ (Model 3 RWD) Waiting Room

    Congrats. I’m also CA so that’s good to hear about order date being maintained. How did you modify the configuration? Did you have to ask your SA to enable something to be able to edit it? I don’t have any way to edit my config in my manage page.
  37. D

    SR/SR+ (Model 3 RWD) Waiting Room

    Yeah, I had the delusion that since this is my 4th Tesla, they would try to accommodate and get me a car before my current M3P lease ends. I asked my SA and she said to talk to Leasing. I talked to Leasing and they said to talk to SA...so that went nowhere. lol

    SR/SR+ (Model 3 RWD) Waiting Room

    My EDD just moved again. Now it's 9/29-11/24. So sad... Order Date: 3/11 3/11 EDD: 7/24-8/15 4/18 EDD: 8/17-10/12 5/24 EDD: 9/29-11/24

    Going from 2017 Model S to 2022 M3P, any downsides?

    I first had a Model S before my M3P. I actually prefer the size of Model 3 although I do think Model S looks better. Also I didn't have the air suspension on the Model S but it still felt like a boat. The M3P definitely feels much more nimble and tight, which for me is a good thing. Maybe...

    2019 M3P 6 Month Review

    Welcome to Tesla's. Pretty much everything you say has been reviewed/stated over and over the past few years. :P But yes, the car is a blast. I'm returning my stealth performance lease in a few months and am going to miss it.

    SR/SR+ (Model 3 RWD) Waiting Room

    yeah, my last two deliveries seemed like they didn't care anymore. dirty car, not washed, etc. Panel gaps also were being dismissed quite a bit. What is the bad stitching look like? and for dents, sounds like they will cover that, as they should. Did you check under the car? My front...

    San Diego CA - OEM Model 3 Performance Spoiler - $300 picked up or delivered locally

    Sorry, I forgot about the posting. I finally removed this and it's available for pickup now. If anyone was interested, feel free to message me now and it's available for immediate pickup. No flaws at all. Of course you'll need to re-apply the 3M tape to install.

    Pic of your Model 3.......RIGHT NOW! [model 3 pictures thread]

    This is the only correct look in my opinion. :P great job. I can't stand stretched look. If you get wide wheels, get proper width tires to match it.

    New Model 3 Owner - SoCal

    Yeah sounds like you did alright if you paid $59k. The car wouldn’t have qualified for the CVRP if you bought it new anyway so you didn’t lose out on any rebates buying new. I guess there is the $750 but that’s not much. It’s just crazy how prices have increased and I’m having a hard time...

    Model 3 or no? Need help!

    I’ve owned a Model S prior to my two Mode 3’s. I like my Model 3 Performance over the Model S in almost all ways. Same price (I had the 70 RWD), much faster, smaller where it helps (parking), but like @ODWms said, inside doesn’t feel much smaller. So for me, I don’t miss the Mode S. The ONLY...

    SR/SR+ (Model 3 RWD) Waiting Room

    There is a thread where everyone is posting their updates along with a spreadsheet tracker. Ht latest I have seen is you may be able to speed it up by switching to LR (you'll want to talk to your SA to make sure they update it without any price hikes that happened in March and honor your price...

    SR/SR+ (Model 3 RWD) Waiting Room

    has anyone seen whether existing Tesla customers/owners are seeing faster deliveries over new ones? or vice versa? I'm curious if that plays a role at all...
