    Does it make sense to get white interior if we have two kids in car seats?

    I have an M3LR I bought in Jan with white seats. I also have an 11 years old that likes to keep his shoes extra muddy. I've never had any problems with keeping the seat clean. All it takes is a quick wipe using a wet napkin.

    Peace sign wave

    So as I was driving in my residential neighborhood, a couple walking their dog did waved to me while doing a peace (✌️) sign. Now my question is - is this a new Tesla wave that I'm unaware of, or because of my unkempt hair and unshaven face they assumed I'm a hippie, or they're just really big...

    Floor Mats, what to do with old ones?

    This is the way.

    Whats the silliest EV prejudice youve heard?

    Aww shuck. You sure? Also, Texas still sucks.

    Whats the silliest EV prejudice youve heard?

    44% still becomes gasoline. "Less than half" is misleading. Also, Texas sucks balls. So glad I got out of that place.

    Elon Musk

    Exactly. For some people here, the Musk can do no wrong. It's embarrassing, honestly.

    Elon Musk

    I live in the US, and even I think this guy is an embarrassment. Don't get me wrong. I like my car. But I think this dude is really sleazy. He thinks rules don't apply to him. He needs to go.

    MASTER THREAD: Range Loss Over Time, What Can Be Expected, Efficiency, How to Maintain Battery Health

    1) We were using cabin heat continuously. 2) parts of the trip were on I90, so we were going around 75. But then mostly 50 or so on Rt 20. And then around 40 the rest of the way. 3) some snow and wind. Highways were clean. But local roads, not so much.

    MASTER THREAD: Range Loss Over Time, What Can Be Expected, Efficiency, How to Maintain Battery Health

    New M3LR owner here. Yesterday the temps were around 20℉. My car was at 87% battery. We did a 76 miles round trip, and got back home with 51% battery left. That's 36% of battery usage, and around 211 mile range on a 100% battery. But mine is supposed to be 350+ or something. Is it not? I...

    Trip from Metrowest Mass to Jay Peak

    The more the better :) Yes, I'll be staying at JP. I like the idea of getting extra charge at the last supercharger. Do these route planners (and Tesla's built-in route planner) take outside temperature into account when calculating range?

    Trip from Metrowest Mass to Jay Peak

    I'm a brand new Tesla model 3 LR owner. I asked this question on reddit, but since most replies were from people outside of Mass, I thought I'd ask here as well. Does anyone have experience doing this trip in winter? And if so, were there any serious concerns regarding range? Cold weather? Any...

    New Englanders -- check in!

    I wasn't saying that YOU should've stated their fees on this forum either. If a place cannot be bothered to be transparent about their prices, there are many other places that I can take my business to. Do you mind sharing the name of the place?

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    That is correct. In Mass, you need to add your new car prior to taking delivery (using the VIN).

    New Englanders -- check in!

    Most other businesses manage to have a fixed price for a fixed product. It's only these auto mod type ones that can't someone manage to do that. Even car washes, car detailing ones somehow manage to figure it out. If only there were an easy way to update a static file on a web server...

    I got mine 2 days ago. My OD was 10/08. Hang in there.

    New Englanders -- check in!

    I don't get this. Why wouldn't anyone want to advertise their prices openly, unless they rely on sweet talking to their customers to see how much they can squeeze out of them. That's why I hate salesmen. I understand that sometimes prices depend on a lot of factors, but they can always give a...

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    I got the Intel. Apart from slow loading Netflix screen, I didn't notice any lag. Netflix plays smoothly. Maps are smooth. Yeah, I like the blue color too. Pickup experience was great. The SA at Dedham, MA was super helpful and patient. Thanks Reggie!

    Aah, that makes sense. I ordered on Oct 8th. Barely made it in :D
  22. whiskeylover

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    No idea. But mine expires on Jan 24, 2023. I guess I placed my order in October, maybe that's why.
  23. whiskeylover

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    No regrets. I knew when I accepted the VIN that it was going to be Intel. The interface looks nice, so no complains.

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    Checkout experience was great. The SA was super nice and let us take as much time as we wanted to inspect the car. Unfortunately no freebies (except the front license plate cover, which looks nice.) Yeah, will have to get the bra to protect from the snow.

    No clue. But I'm not complaining!

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    Thanks for keeping me company all these weeks, you guys. Just picked up my Blue M3LR at Dedham, MA today, and it's beautiful. Also, checked the config. It's an Atom processor (not that it bothers me). Also, got one year of free premium connectivity (as opposed to 30 days that most people are...

    In addition to the github link, I'm also going to use this checklist when I pick mine up today.

    Mine was Blue/White/18/No and MA. Hope you get your VIN soon.

    I got the 60A breaker installed on a new sub-panel in the garage. The sub-panel now powers my wall charger.

    Radar Detector need for Model 3

    Doing 77 on 70 is one thing, but doing 49 on 30 is another. It's completely reckless. You never know if a child is playing around the corner, or a pedestrian is trying to cross the road. I know children shouldn't be playing on the streets, but good luck giving "right of way" as as excuse if you...

    I'm picking up mine at Dedham too. I've bought my weather mats and mud flaps from Amazon. If the center gives them to me for free, I'll return my Amazon ones 😁

    Tesla MP3 delivered without brake pad on drivers side

    Tell us you're from Texas without telling us you're from Texas.

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    Sorry, that sucks. Do you have MSM? That seems to delay orders a bit. Your last resort may be to threaten them with order cancellation and getting your deposit back thru small claims :D

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    That doesn't seem right. My OD is 10/08, and I'm getting my car in 5 days. Walk into a Tesla showroom and talk to the guy. He should be able to look it up on his computer right in front of you and tell you what's happening. Did you complete all the pre-tasks?

    Tesla wont accept proof of insurance for car pickup if Policy expires within 30 days

    Could the RTA form be an MA thing? I'll call them up and sort this out. As for insurance, it seems that CT requires minimum 30 days of coverage. So it is indeed Tesla that is giving you a hard time.
  40. whiskeylover

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    You should see a VIN under your reservation number both in the app and the website. They may or may not send you a text message until a couple days later.

    Tesla wont accept proof of insurance for car pickup if Policy expires within 30 days

    Agreed with other commenters. It's the state law. Tesla can't do much about it.

    Tesla wont accept proof of insurance for car pickup if Policy expires within 30 days

    I am in MA too. I called up progressive, and got my policy up and running starting 24th. But since I don't have a plate number yet, they asked me to call some other number to get an RTA form. Did that happen with you too?
  43. whiskeylover

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    Currently orders from Oct 2021 are being delivered. Seems like there's a lag of 3 months right now. Obviously that also depends on your config and location.
