    EZ Pass Green Discount Plan

    Got it, thanks!

    EZ Pass Green Discount Plan

    Thanks; this is helpful! Any idea where one can reliably get a Port Authority-issued tag? That one should also be eligible for the PAGRN discount plan and I'm hoping there is somewhere more convenient to Manhattan to grab one vs having to go to Yonkers or a Thruway rest stop.

    EZ Pass Green Discount Plan

    I'm having an issue wherein they're saying I can't get the PAGRN discount plan because my NY EZ Pass tag was issued by the MTA (as opposed to Port Authority). Has anyone else had this issue? How do you go about getting a tag issued by a specific agency? When you apply for a new account or new...

    FYI - DCU is not locking in rates based on application date anymore :(

    Posting my experience fwiw - I was approved for a loan at 1.74% a few weeks back (incl the EV and relationship discounts). When I called to finalize / get the check sent out, the rate had increased to 1.99% and the rep tried to quote me the new rate. However, she did end up honoring the...

    EDD Modified from 1/15 to June

    Updated from June to Feb 15-Mar 15, so a roughly 4 week delay

    EDD Modified from 1/15 to June

    Spoke to them; apparently the factory periodically 'updates their planning' or something like that and the EDDs are set to some kind of default during that period. The advisor couldn't say definitively that the date hadn't actually slipped, but thought based on his experience that June is...

    EDD Modified from 1/15 to June

    Mine was a LR as well; let me know if you see any changes. Might call to check in today and see if they have any further information.

    EDD Modified from 1/15 to June

    I’ve been checking the estimated delivery date for our MY order and it narrowed to 1/15 - 2/10 or so a few weeks back and has been stable since then, so we’re preparing to take delivery. Tonight it jumped to “June”. Presumably this is a wacky bug / inaccurate? I know the dates tend to jump...

    Process to buy w/ PenFed loan

    I just spoke with an agent who mentioned that the .5% rate discount (required along with the .25% EV discount to get the rate down to that 1.24%) was specifically for direct deposit of your entire salary (not sure how this would be enforced, maybe comparing to the income quoted in your...

    Process to buy w/ PenFed loan

    How quickly were they able to send the check? This notice that they are not expediting checks and taking 7-10 business days was pretty surprising

    Process to buy w/ PenFed loan

    Lots of folks seem to be using PenFed for auto loans bc of the great rate available, but I noticed the following at the start of the application: Is this going to be problematic? It sounds like in some cases by the time you get the VIN Tesla wants you to complete the purchase within some silly...

    2018 Model 3 LR RWD w/ EAP - NYC area

    Bump; MY delivery scheduled for Jan 15 - Feb 15, so looking to sell in that time frame.

    Superchargers: 150kW, 250kW ... is there much difference?

    Recently noticed the car displaying the 'preconditioning for supercharging' message a full 90 minutes prior to reaching the superchargers on multiple stops during a road trip (this was a M3 in case relevant). It was about 40F which is cold to be sure, but during previous winters we never saw the...

    2018 Model 3 LR RWD w/ EAP - NYC area

    Can FSD be removed w/o order pricing change?

    I can confirm that I did end up using the self-service button on the website and it sends an updated order PDF which does not have any price changes beyond the removal of FSD (at least in my case). I'm pretty sure that they wouldn't allow you to self-service remove an item without confirming a...

    Removing FSD Pre-Delivery

    Adding a data point here in case helpful - I was able to remove FSD with the self-service button in 'my account'; it generates a new order agreement PDF but base price of vehicle did not change despite the MY base price increasing yesterday. My order has not yet been assigned a VIN, in case...

    Can FSD be removed w/o order pricing change?

    Ordered a MY a few weeks back (prior to recent $2k price increase). I understand that generally configuration changes forfeit your ability to have your original order pricing honored. However, does this apply to removing software like FSD? Asking because for this particular order change there...

    Hit and run caught by sentry mode

    In case anyone is curious, this ended up being $2,500 to fix (despite it just being surface scratches/flaking of paint; no dents / no new parts required). It apparently is because of higher labor rates at Tesla-certified body shops.

    Hit and run caught by sentry mode

    I proactively sent the video along with the claim. They spent a few days trying to reach out to the driver of the other vehicle, who was completely unresponsive, and then they told me they accepted 100% responsibility. Not sure if that would have been different if she somehow came up with a...

    Hit and run caught by sentry mode

    Update - car is in the shop being repaired and Geico accepted 100% of responsibility. Sentry mode to the rescue!

    Tesla EV Tax Credits coming back?

    Does anyone know which specific line items are/aren't included in MSRP for the purpose of determining qualification for the potential tax credit? Need to be under $69k for SUVs like MY at least as currently written; my build is below. Do I need to get the 'car price' line to under $69k (remove...

    Tesla EV Tax Credits coming back?

    ah also didn't think about the sales tax implication of buying after delivery hmmm; in NJ there is no sales tax charged for EVs, so that's a $700 savings at 7% on FSD purchase...agree that it would be great to get the card points but won't outweigh the 7% hit for tax :(

    Tesla EV Tax Credits coming back?

    Concern w/ the subscription is that the price could go up at any time without notice + at least if you pay up front you get some (small) amount of residual value for the feature selling privately, maybe more than small if FSD package goes up in price again

    Tesla EV Tax Credits coming back?

    Was thinking about this but then I don't have the lock on the price for FSD which I imagine might get increased again if they actually publically release?

    Tesla EV Tax Credits coming back?

    Two questions: Are we sure that the MY would qualify as an 'SUV'? It seems to exist in the crossover space between a car/SUV, so not sure what is officially used to decide this... Have an order due in Jan so obviously hoping for the tax credit, and it's currently $990 over the $69k limit...

    Hit and run caught by sentry mode

    Just a quick update - apparently Geico has a super easy online claims process. When I popped in the plate number, it immediately provided the driver’s name and policy number, and then allowed me to choose to file the claim against her policy rather than mine. Was actually much easier than...

    Hit and run caught by sentry mode

    The other cameras actually do also show a teeny bit of wiggle, but you have to view them full screen and be staring at a straight surface in view like one of the buildings to notice it. I suppose I can send that over to the insurance if they argue for whatever reason

    Hit and run caught by sentry mode

    Noticed some pretty bad scratches to the driver's side corner of our Model 3 today; checked the sentry video and sure enough someone sideswiped the car while trying (poorly) to parallel park recently. License plate is clearly visible. Any advance re: how to proceed? Do folks typically bring...

    New homescreen widget

    Apparently there is a new iOS homescreen widget available with v4 of the app released yesterday. I’ve downloaded the app (which is working great), but don’t see Tesla in the list of options when I try to add widgets to my homescreen. Is there something I’m missing? Does something need to be...

    Touchscreen malfunctioning on long trips

    Interestingly, the service center is stating that the phantom touches are being caused by...my jump drive for sentry/dashcam being too high capacity (it’s 256gb). Apparently they recommend 128gb max or, optimally, 64gb. Has anyone ever heard this storage size recommendation? Any thoughts as to...

    Touchscreen malfunctioning on long trips

    Just dropped off for service so will see what they do; the employee handling the drop off said it's not a common issue at all FWIW but seems like pretty bad luck to have the same issue happen twice.

    Touchscreen malfunctioning on long trips

    Updating this after quite a while - this instance was a year and a half ago; once I had the appointment the SC did indeed replace the full display without any trouble and that seemed to fix the issue, including on several similar long road trips. This past weekend, we did another road trip and...

    New Camera Icon in FSD Beta [ in 2020 - not current FSD beta]

    Anyone else notice the new camera icon (to the left of the existing Dashcam icon) on the screen in the FSD videos? Any idea what this might be indicating? Perhaps the in-car camera is recording while FSD is active and this is an indicator? Screen Shot 2020-10-23 At 1.26.23 PM by eab6287 posted...

    Recommend AC Evap Cleaning?

    Hey all- Dropped off my Model 3 to the service center today to have the recommended 2 yr maintenance performed (tire rotation, alignment, cabin air filter replacement, etc). They just sent a text asking if I'd also like to do an 'AC Evap Cleaning' to clear out any possible mildew which can...

    AutoPark + Smart Summon Questions

    Autopark - what is the most reliable method to get autopark to activate for perpendicular parking? I picked up my Model 3 about 2.5 years ago, and to this day the only time it has ever activated for me has been when I supercharged at the dealer a few days after picking it up (was directly...

    EAP to FSD upgrade price drop by $1k. Will be $3k until July 1st

    Agree personally that they shouldn't have the right to remove it, but they do definitely have the technical ability to do so... Happy to hear that it sounds like this transfers fine; I feel like I had heard somewhere that people had issues with this or were referencing that it didn't transfer...

    EAP to FSD upgrade price drop by $1k. Will be $3k until July 1st

    Considering this since I missed out on the $2k fire sale last time (can confirm the $3k price is now showing in the app). Can someone definitively share whether or not the feature travels to a new owner (e.g. whether or not it impacts resale value)? I know that I've read about Tesla removing it...

    Reverse Summon for EAP Purchasers

    There have been many changes to features included in packages for new owners, but as far as I know they haven't broken a promise re: features that were originally advertised (e.g. EAP owners got normal Smart Summon because it was stated as a feature of that package at the time of purchase, even...

    Reverse Summon for EAP Purchasers

    Understand the sentiment if that were the case (re: not knowing about the feature), but I actually don't think this is accurate. I'm fairly sure that when I pre-ordered the car and selected the EAP option, the description included smart summon functionality (and therefore I actually already paid...

    Reverse Summon for EAP Purchasers

    An Elon tweet last night indicated that reverse summon (car drops you off at a location then drives off to go park itself) is coming later this year 'as part of FSD software update'. If I remember correctly as an early owner who purchased EAP (prior to most features moving into the FSD option...

    MASTER THREAD: 2019.40.2 - FSD AutoSteer Stop Sign Warning and Adjacent Lane Speeds

    Is anyone clear on whether new traffic light and stop sign features require HW3? This is a grey area bc I would think EAP should include traffic light recognition since there are lights on some highways, but I could see them claiming that NoA is only designed to address limited access highways...

    MASTER THREAD: 2019.40.2 - FSD AutoSteer Stop Sign Warning and Adjacent Lane Speeds

    Thanks a bunch - so to be clear, those with EAP / HW 2.5 do get adjacent lane speed reduction? That’s great news if so. I am curious how much improvement will continue to come to NoA for those with EAP only. The originally-promised feature we were sold was full on ramp to off ramp which isn’t...

    MASTER THREAD: 2019.40.2 - FSD AutoSteer Stop Sign Warning and Adjacent Lane Speeds

    Can someone clarify which features require paid FSD, which require paid FSD+HW3 installed, and which work with only EAP and HW 2.5? I have the latter; curious if this firmware will give me the adjacent lane speed adjustment, stop sign recognition, etc. or if I’ll only get improved lane change...

    Chunk out of tire :(

    Update - the bodyshop working on the car filled the missing chunk with some kind of rubber-like compound as a courtesy / without notifying me. Tire isn’t leaking and otherwise seems fine? Probably going to just leave it for the time being / try to get some more mileage out of the tires since the...

    Chunk out of tire :(

    sentry wouldn’t be useful for this (doesn’t operate while car is in motion), and unfortunately we didn’t notice the damage in time to hit save for the Teslacam clip
