    Tesla Screwed up my license registration

    Well, sales guy also screwed up. Pushed me to apply for the loan ASAP, then it timed out so they had to hit my credit report a 2nd time. As someone with an 840 credit score, even the 5 point hit from an inquiry is noticeable. The biggest issue is I need to apply for the HOV stickers. Right now...

    Tesla Screwed up my license registration

    9 weeks after I took delivery I had no plates, just temporary tags. I called them. Just got the below. TL;DR: Tesla is not to be trusted with the registration process. Call every single week. Good thing I didn't get pulled over, no idea what may have happend. "....It looks like there was an...

    How/who to replace broken window?

    10 day old Model 3 driver rear window broken, apparently out of spite cuz sentry mode showed it all. No license plate though. What's the fastest way to get this fixed? Who would I call?

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    well in a SHOCKING turn of events, I got a text 2 days ago with a VIN, this morning that the car was ready and schedule delivery, contacted my SA, and picked up the car today. Whoa... Okay then.
  7. MrVivekB

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    Nope. No VIN. I only check on day 2 of my window, and by now the only question is "how long is it delayed now". I don't see why Tesla even bothers having Sales Advisors. I got switched to a new one, he's never emailed me.

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    (begin Sesame Street/Count voice) 8, 8 pushbacks to my date AFTER the window had started, bwa ha ha! 9, this is my NINTH delivery window, bwa ha ha! On 11/23, my 11/22->12/6 window was pushed to 11/24->12/8. I would post all the prior windows but I just don't care anymore. If Tesla didn't have...

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    Just emailed this to my SA. He doesn't reply to me, so I'm sure he'll just hit delete. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I've now entered the EDD window *SEVEN* times only to have it pushed back each time. Right now is the 8th different...

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    Oh. Wow. I'm. So. Surprised. On the 2nd day into my SEVENTH EDD Window the date was pushed back to 11/22. Yep, my *EIGHTH* different EDD window. I really need to stop checking or even pretending I'll some day have a Tesla. This is 100% the worst sales process on the entire planet, any other...

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    I have now lost track of how many times I've entered the EDD window only to have it pushed back. I *think*: Black/Black/18" specs, 9/3 OD. 10/30, 11/7, 11/9, 11/11, 11/13, 11/16, and just now 11/18. And even better, I've stopped caring. It's 2:15pm California time and I just realized I hadn't...

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    lol oh look - EDD change #4. EDD#3 was 11/13-12/9, but this morning it went to 11/16->12/14. And on 11/17 who knows what it'll say. I'm telling y'all, this is Tom Hanks/Money Pit line. "The house will be done in...2 weeks!"
  13. MrVivekB

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    Yup. happened 3x in a row, 2-3 days each time. Today is day 1 of the 4th EDD, tomorrow will be day 2. I'm expecting it to be pushed back 2 days when I wake up tomorrow morning.
  14. MrVivekB

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    The game continues. Every time I enter the EDD window, that night the date gets pushed 2 days out. OD of 9/3ish, first EDD was 10/31. On 10/31 it moved to 11/7. Then 11/9, 11/11, and today 11/13. It's like the Tom Hanks / Money Pit movie. "2 weeks!"
  15. MrVivekB

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    sorry, not *over* 850, *at* 850. Was annoyed at the Tesla waiting game and the potential hit. I'm buying a rental property in April, the interest rate I can get with a dead perfect score is phenomenal.
  16. MrVivekB

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    problem is that it likely does another hit on your credit report. I'm over 850, each inquiry is 5-10 points.

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    OD 9/3, Loan approval ~10/2, latest EDD 11/11->12/9, so I emailed Tesla this morning to ask if it would be delivered before the 60 day loan timeout. Here's their response: ":You are right about the terms on the loan. At this point, it is a waiting game. We will have to wait for your car to be...

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    9/3 order date, 35 miles from Fremont. EDD1: 10/30->11/29 EDD2: 11/8->12/6 Today: 11/11->12/6 meh, whatever.
  19. MrVivekB

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    NorCal, 35 miles from Fremont. 9/3 order date, first EDD was 10/30->11/28, 2nd EDD was 11/8->12/6. It's 11/8, no change to EDD (still 11/8->12/6), but no VIN/etc. black/black/18/FSD/Tesla financing. (Which happened ~10/1 so hopefully this window holds given 60 day timeout)

    Tow hitch installer in Bay Area?

    Ok thx. I'll google how much a roof rack impacts range when not in use.

    Tow hitch installer in Bay Area?

    Getting an M3 in a few weeks. Need to get a tow hitch put on so I can have a bike rack, didn't think of this on order. Any recommendations? Bay Area, ideally East Bay.

    Tow Hitch Model 3

    ok cool thanks. Yeah, i'm handy but this is an expensive car...
  23. MrVivekB

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    And today it's 11/8->12/6. What will tomorrow bring, spin the wheel, nobody knows :) Good thing I don't care (yet). By Jan 20th i'm screwed without it, but it'll happen before then.
  24. MrVivekB

    Tow Hitch Model 3

    Did you DIY the install or go to a pro?

    Tow Hitch Model 3

    did you ever install it? How'd it go? Content, or wish you had a pro do it?

    Stealth hitch for bike rack

    did you DIY it? I'm pretty handy but I'm skittish about mucking with a brand new expensive car.
  27. MrVivekB

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    Same as many. Black/Black/18" ordered on 9/3, EDD was 10/29-11/28, just got pushed back to 11/23->12/21
  28. MrVivekB

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    10/29-11/28 EDD unchanged since 9/3 OD, no VIN no communication. I did get approved for Tesla financing on 10/1ish so hopefully it arrives within my EDD window. My daily prayer: "Don't harass tesla until you're in the EDD window, don't harass tesla until you're in the EDD window, don't..."
  29. MrVivekB

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    no but 48 hours out, no VIN. Will clench my teeth and wait until EDD starts to contact Tesla. This is a 1 month EDD that hasn't changed since I ordered, on 9/3.
  30. MrVivekB

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    After 6 weeks of a 10/29-11/28 order window with no change I don't know what I'd do if I logged in one morning and it was different. I've almost forgotten ordering one, except for the 2-3 accessories I already bought. (And maaaan there's a long amazon wishlist for whenever I get a real ETA)
  31. MrVivekB

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    WooHoo, I finally got my Tesla! I mean no, not the car. But the electrician showed up and installed the charger. Still 10/29-11/28 for the M3LR, no change for weeks now. But once I get it at least I'll be able to drive it :-)
  32. MrVivekB

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    OD 9/3, Black/Black/18", EDD consistent at 10/29->11/28 since order. Filled out loan paperwork ~10/2, that's a 60 day timeout, so I have faith Tesla tracks that and gets delivery before it expires. I live in NorCal, 30-40 miles from the factory.
  33. MrVivekB

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    Wow. I ordered on 9/3, black/black, with a 10/29-11/28 EDD that hasn't budged. In NorCal 30 mins from the factory.

    Car cover but few trees, parked for 10 days at a time

    I'll be driving my new M3 for 4 days every other week. it'll be parked in my driveway the rest of the time. There is one tree but not that close, very few leaves will fall. I'll be putting full wrap PPF on it. I live in NorCal. We think 50 degrees is brutally cold, it'll never see snow. I...
  35. MrVivekB

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    Sigh. Daily wakeup, walk dog, drink coffee, empty dishwasher, check Tesla. 9/3 OD, black/black, EDD of 10/29-11/28 haven't changed. Perhaps it's b/c i'm 40 miles from Fremont. Dunno. Not a huge deal, it's not a "must-have" until January but that'll be when my regular NorCal->SoCal trips start...

    Any self-employed try to get Tesla financing?

    FYI, as the others stated, this was easy-peasy. In our case it wasn't instant as I have both wife/I credit reports locked with a fraud alert (just being anal), so they had to call us. Took an hour elapsed time. Wife & I both having 830 credit scores probably helped.
  37. MrVivekB

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    Well, OD of 9/4, EDD of 10/29-11/28 hasn't changed, but at least I just got a Tesla certified electrician to come out on 10/20 to install the wall charger. I have a Tesla Powerwall system, some irrelevant specifics mean I can't just DIY or get a regular electrician. Baby steps?
  38. MrVivekB

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    Tesla Panels/Powerwall & EV integration information

    Thanks, super useful, that was 90% of it. Only other question would be whether there are any other options other than grid status. IE, right now I have no EV so I manually set to at 40% reserves in the summer, 90% in the winter (given far lower production). If the only option is grid status I'd...

    Tesla Panels/Powerwall & EV integration information

    oh that's helpful, thanks! I'll see if I can find any youtube using some of those words.

    Tesla Panels/Powerwall & EV integration information

    Trying to google to learn about this Tesla Integration if you have both panels/powerwall and an EV. I have a full solar system & powerwall (only 1 boohoo), getting a Model 3. I've read in various threads about integration so you can have the charger run to the backed up side, want to learn, but...

    NorCal/EastBay: Did y'all get home delivery as an option? On order I was told that not available for me and I need to shlep to Corte Madera. Which is fine I s'pose but my wife is going to make me stop at the mall and shop to offset my car :) I live in Oakland and housing prices are now...

    Any self-employed try to get Tesla financing?

    Any self employed folks try to get Tesla financing? No issues with giving them tax returns, bank statements, etc. Hoping to not do current year P&L signed by a CPA cuz that's $450. OD of 9/3, EDD is still 10/29-11/28 so I have time, just trying to get my mind around what will be required.
  44. MrVivekB

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    FWIW, the 1.24% was via Tesla matching DCU, but you need a referral code to join DCU. That thread is now locked, so new folks (ie me) will have to suck up whatever rate Tesla or their local bank offer.
  45. MrVivekB

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    For the archives, I ordered on 9/4, delivery window of 10/29->11/28. Black with black interior, 18" wheels. In NorCal. That window is fine with me, my college age kid is hybrid right now so she's living at home, her car here, we don't need another car right this second. In January we'll be down...

    I've been trading emails with Mum Sports, who is on these forums. Dude seems to know his stuff, pretty quick on responding too. This isn't an endorsement as I haven't even taken delivery of my M3 yet, but it's a place for you to start your research. We could trade notes...

    Home Automation & Powerwalls/Panels

    Got it. Also, how did you get the % battery? Also custom code? I have mine set to 40% reserve so the HASS "battery now" just shows wattage coming from battery. Right now, 8am, that's 0 kw/0%. I'd love to see the "40%" somewhere.
