    Noisy Handsfree Calling

    I got this complaint from a friend just recently. Said he heard a lot of background noise. Bummer!

    Did Tesla Improve Trunk Struts? (Easy to close now...)

    I noticed with my new Model 3 that the trunk is actually MUCH easier to close when compared to my previous Model 3 and also the many I've seen in showrooms....its a very noticeable difference....I can definitely close it with one hand using the inner handles/grips.... I recently got a Model 3...

    AWD delivery thread

    Not a good “delivery day”.... Had pickup today for 5:15pm. They called me at 1pm and said if I would like home delivery. I said sure, as long as they can give an extra inspection before they brought it. Long story short as to why, I have already received a model 3 with so many paint problems...

    AWD delivery thread

    So I just got confirmation that my car is ready to take delivery this week, VIN 91,xxx. Has anyone confirmed if this means I'm getting a car that has been sitting for a long time? Because it looks like we're in the hundred thousands now...or is this not true?

    So no news from anyone who got the 2nd text?: “Thank you for your quick response! We appreciate you confirming you are available. We will contact you shortly once we get a firm date from our logistics team.”?

    I just got this text as well about an hour ago. I responded but no response. Wtf...(this is the 4th time I’ve heard that a car is ready....with the first 3 being false....)

    My mind kept going in the direction of coming up with a way to adjust too, but yes....it would definitely make it more complex! I use RAM mounts in my vehicles for my phone and they allow A LOT of freedom to move XYZ and rotate, so I may have gotten used to the freedom haha

    Free Supercharging for 1 year even for RWD

    So if we already ordered and waiting, nothing?

    Well, looks like this was a false alarm....no car assigned to me....darn! Thought I got lucky, but just another Tesla Flub....back in the waiting queue....

    I had him double check because I too was skeptic. But he did confirm it was an AWD.

    AWD delivery thread

    So...I just got a call for delivery! But weird... I literally ordered the car two weeks ago....on September 6 for a RWD, updated to AWD on September 12, and call for delivery on September 17! Crazy right? This is a “re-order”, since I did get a RWD model 3 in June that Tesla is buying back...

    AWD front motor sounds

    Got my order in. Delivery says Nov-Jan. I’m wondering if this is normal and just that there is less sound deadening than a model S in the front? And also the motor being closer? If this does end up being a “widespread” conpaint, and it’s not an actual issue with the motor..... I’m sure there...

    Tesla to Produce Pickup After Model Y Rollout

    I can’t wait for this. I have a Toyota Tacoma with almost 200k miles. Hoping it will last until this comes out! I’m sure it will, but I’m more worried I’ll get another truck before then hahaha

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

    Damn! I changed my order from RWD to AWD on Saturday, but still waiting for it to update online. Sales rep said it would take some days to update online...and now the price went up! I’m hoping they can respect the price it was a few days ago when he “technically” submitted the change....

    Well.....I decided to change my new order to an AWD. Looks like I'll be in this thread for a bit. Hoping to get my new Model 3 before Christmas!

    AWD delivery thread

    Hey guys, New to the thread. But hoping those who have been in this thread can help me with my decision with what results have been posted. Long story short....I received a RWD Model 3 which is now in process of being bought back by Tesla because paint had so many problems they were almost...

    Awesome! I saw there is a Nylon-CF filament, as well as a PLA-CF filament. Good to see you really analyzed it and explained why you went that route! Since you will not be able to make and sell them (yet), would you consider selling/sharing the cad models (step?)? I’d love to print/fab a pair...

    Tesla Service Paint Repair/Repaint Experiences...Please Share

    Damn that’s a bummer. That is definitely what I did not want to go through! I think you may have a case, though they have spent a lot of time trying to repair already. For me it was because I kept expressing I was not happy and I was uncomfortable with the idea of repainting, especially part...

    Serious security issue with phone as a key

    Have a model S loaner. Saw on last update that they specifically only aded one feature. You can add a PIN number for security in order to drive the car? So perhaps this is the only extra security measure to prevent any shenanigans? Not sure if this is on the Model 3 yet since I'm still waiting...

    Haha. Yeah, I will definitely push the data thing as much as I can. That would be awesome to get an upgrade like that, but I doubt they'd offer that much "credit" haha. Won't hurt to ask tho ;) Yeah for sure. I took the car in August 8th. At least I've had the Model S P90D loaner to get me...

    X2. Definitely do this. I washed my car, did many circles around it and marked every mark I could with tape and sent it Into Service 2 days later. Felt bad driving around with tape for that long hahah. But the couple days allowed me to catch several more spots as I used the car and saw it under...

    Anxiously waiting an AWD review / videos

    Thanks. Yeah, service side seems great. Excited to get a new one and just enjoy it again. And now a chance to upgrade to AWD.... Still can’t believe the production/delivery side and how the car passed so many eyes and delivered as so. I even went to Tesla store yesterday just cause I was at...

    AWD front motor sounds

    Is it obnoxious? Wonder if it doesn’t have any sound deadening as I’ve seen the Model S has around the motors... or if it would be somewhat simple to add sound deadening?

    AWD front motor sounds

    Is it really louder than an S?! I have a 2015 Model S P90D loaner now (Tesla is buying back my model 3, many paint problems all over....). AWD on S Very noticable sound over the model 3 RWD, but I kind of like it....I’m thinking of upgrading to AWD for new model 3 now because I like the...

    Driver Centric Center Display

    Hey CJ, is a new shroud needed because theres a gap created from the angle which does not look good? Or does the stock shroud interfere with the ability to be at an angle hence why it needs to be removed/replaced? Also, do you see room for lowering the screen (and tilting up...), or going more...

    Anxiously waiting an AWD review / videos

    I got a RWD Model 3, only had it for a week and had MANY paint problems, took it in and got a loaner, Model S P90D. Really have been enjoying the dual motor handling and the Ludacrous mode acceleration...Had it couple weeks now....and I still do. So I've driven a fully decked out Model S more...

    Refused M3 delivery Marina Del Rey

    Yeah. I’ve heard of panels being repainted with one or two defects....but this is crazy.....but I’m glad it’s an entire repaint and not a patchy fix. Guess their reputation/customer service is very important to them which is great. The tech manager said it clearly, they don’t advertise. They...

    I actually wanted to tackle this myself. But my model 3 still in service for another few weeks, don’t mind getting it if someone did all the hard work?

    Very interested in these. Potentially sell different angles, and maybe even a kit with 2 or 3 different options to find best individual preference!

    Lowering the Model 3

    Question for those who lowered. Are you scraping on curbs or parking stops now? I know lowered looks better, but I definitely won’t consider if I’m going to be dragging the front bumper every time I park....

    Refused M3 delivery Marina Del Rey

    Edited my post, quite a few typos haha. Well, they’re repainting for first time, but yes would be second time painted after Factory of course. Here’s a link to my thread. There were a lot of contaminants under the paint. I have a few different posts with pics, scroll through to see...it was...

    Refused M3 delivery Marina Del Rey

    I kinda wish I did the same and refused delivery. Same Marina del Ray delivery, dirty car, foot prints in trunk (how the hell does that happen...), scratched charge port door. And many, many paint defects! Fast forward to today, they are going to repaint my entire car. Guess it’s better than...

    NEW UPDATE: So they’re going to PAINT THE ENTIRE CAR. Take it all apart, sand, primer and paint. The manager at Tesla service authorized to repaint the entire car rather than most of it. Reiterated that it’s all about me being satisfied with the result so let’s go ahead and try the repaint...

    Agoura Hills, CA. Just went by the service center since I was in the area. Met with the manager. Great attitude. Says will have a meeting about my vehicle with some higher ups today and call me after. But he reiterated that it’s very important that I’m 100% satisfied with the result.

    UPDATE: Got a call from the manager of the service center. He went to look at the car with the body shop. Pretty much offered two solutions: 1) Try to conserve the Factory paint as much as Possible and buff out what they can and repaint at a minimal. He kept saying how nothing will be better...

    Is there an "Extra" Parking Brake Step or Not? Weird.....

    Hahahaha. I like that..."Super Parking Brake". I can't believe there isn't a solid answer to this yet. I'm glad many have actually tried it and agree there may be something "extra" going on based on the park light and sound.....whether or not this is actually doing something extra is the...

    Tesla Service Paint Repair/Repaint Experiences...Please Share

    So I called the body shop that Tesla took my Model 3 to. They color sanded all the spots to get a better look. They concluded the the entire mid/rear portion of the car needs to be repainted. If I recall he said the entire car except for the front fenders and hood? Can’t remember if the front...

    Red - paint quality issues

    They did have me sign first, THEN showed me the car and took it outside to look again. Seemed to be the norm. So if you’re iffy....don’t sign until after you’ve seen it. Though I’m not sure if they are not allowed to show you it/take it outside unless “it’s yours”?

    Too bad it doesn't detect for contaminants before it paints! Mine had too many, took it to Tesla Service center, likely need to repaint the whole car! Without the utters! haha

    Quick update. Dropped of the M3 this morning. Techs said it’s the most paint defects they’ve ever seen, they couldn’t believe the hair. They even vented that the production/sales/delivery team sure ain’t helping the service team by not catching these things very well before giving them to...

    Is there an "Extra" Parking Brake Step or Not? Weird.....

    I’m glad I’m not the only one haha! I just got a Model S loaner from service and it has the same “thing”. I do hear something being actuated in the car with this extra hold down/Park light. I get that most of you will continue saying “who cares, don’t do it just put it in Park”.... But there...

    I can't shift into gear fast enough. Fix it.

    I agree. There is no clarity! I just got a model S loaner and it has the same weird thing. I started a thread about it, but everyone is saying don’t do it just put it in Park. But it’s such a weird thing, I would like to figure it out! Hahaha

    Is there an "Extra" Parking Brake Step or Not? Weird.....

    I get what you guys are saying. But are you suggesting that by doing this is applying the emergency brake? Which is a separate brake in the M3?

    Is there an "Extra" Parking Brake Step or Not? Weird.....

    Ok, so I need help figuring out something weird about the parking brake. In the owners' manual, it says when you put the M3 in park, that the parking brake in also applied....ok, cool....BUT..... BEFORE I learned this, I would tap the Park button to go into park, and then HOLD it and the Park...

    I can't shift into gear fast enough. Fix it.

    Well, if this is true, why does the park light only engage when I do it a second time? Try it...after you go into park, wait a few seconds, and then HOLD the park button down. You’ll see a “PARK” light come on at the top of the screen. Why does this only come on when you do this extra pain in...
