    EAP Return to US

    It would be awesome if Tesla let you add these a-la-carte. Tim

    EAP Return to US

    Too rich for my blood. I'd fork over 2K for it and would consider going to 3K with the green light chime aded in. To me, everything but the automatic lane change is pretty useless and no way I'm shelling out over 6K for that one feature. Tim

    Install Day!

    Thanks! Right now AC is killing me, but the free charging at work helps out a lot. 😉 Tim

    New Official Illuminated Door sills

    Mine are still going strong, no issues whatsoever! Tim

    Going to order a new Model 3 performance. Should I consider the long range AWD?

    I also appreciate the extra appearance goodies. Tim

    Going to order a new Model 3 performance. Should I consider the long range AWD?

    Based on the OPs profile picture, I'd say the correct choice was made! ;) Tim

    Install Day!

    You are correct! The "backup load center" is actually my main panel and was pre-existing. Tim

    Is it worth removing the wall connector when moving?

    Not surprised, EV sales are not even 5% of all vehicles sold in the US (was like 2% just recently). Maybe when we get to 30-40% penetration it'll be considered a must. Until then, just a wasted expense for most homeowners. And OP, take that thing with you. ;) Tim

    Install Day!

    Just head over to Tesla.com, choose Solar, and get a quote! Easy peasy, although prices have gone up slightly since I ordered. Tim

    Heat generation from Powerwall+

    Same behavior here, FWIW. Tim

    Install Day!

    Yes, whole home backup. That switch won't kill the power to the house, just the panels and Powerwalls. Tim

    Just had 9.8kw Solar+2PW installed, have some noob questions.

    Should this happen to someone else... I posted this on a Facebook group and got the following response. "Just need to tighten hex bolt inside door top right corner.

    Install Day!

    Problem... seem to have a developed a small coolant leak in the inverter. My support section of the application does not have a button to request service available yet. Does anyone know how else to get a hold of them? Tim

    Mine is leaking too (installed yesterday). My app does not have the request service button available yet. How did you get a hold of them? Tim

    Install Day!

    According to the installers that was a recent development. Not sure how I feel about it, honestly. Hopefully neighbor kids don't see it... Tim

    Install Day!

    Oh man that sucks, sorry to hear that. Did they at least leave you in self-powered mode, or was the punch list extensive enough that they left the system powered down? TIm

    Install Day!

    9.6 kW (24) Solar Panels with 2 Powerwalls. Crew was incredible. Insanley clean install. Took them 8 hours start to finsh. One of the solar installers even cleaned my gutters while he was waiting around. Simply blown away.

    2021 Trunk Damage Upon Open/Close

    I’m going to guess that the bolts on the driver side hinge slip with the force of the powered strut first pushing to lift the trunk. I suspect it happens on open not close. Tim

    Best Conditioner for Vegan Leather

    Thank goodness... I was left wondering how many vegans it took to make a set of seats. ;) Tim
  23. TBrownTX

    Best Conditioner for Vegan Leather

    Not only that, it's only the very center insert of the seat. The rest is "vegan leather". Tim

    The term vegan leather makes me shudder... thankfully I'm not a vegan! TIm

    2021 Trunk Damage Upon Open/Close

    Ugh I'm sorry this happened to you. As others have mentioned, you should be able to adjust it back so it's at least functional in the meantime. Has anyone on here tried to retorque the bolts as a preventative measure? Tim

    Rear Seats (subframe?) squeaks - unbearable

    Any chance is this? https://teslamotorsclub.com/tmc/threads/fixed-my-squeaky-seat-issue-i-havent-seen-on-the-forums.240081/#post-5914192 Tim

    Would you take a demo with 67 miles?

    Dude it's going to be long gone if you keep going back and forth, and you'll have to wait months. DO IT NOW. Tim

    Blind Spot [I want a chime for blind spot warning]

    I just don't feel that strongly about these two features. I've been driving for 35 years without them. Too much goodness with the Tesla to get all worked up about these couple of safety features. Turn and look, back in, problem solved. Tim

    Back seat cover for dogs in Model 3?

    Love my bougie Tesla branded cover. Tim

    Preparing for install!

    Just finished clearing out one wall in my garage and the attic where 9.6kW panels and two Powerwalls will be installed on June 3rd. It's getting real!

    do you really need a portable air compressor?

    This right here. Tim
  32. TBrownTX

    do you really need a portable air compressor?

    Yes, if nor no other reason than to air up your tires in the fall when the temperature drops. Portable/battery powered is so much easier than a full sized compressor or paying at the gas station (yech). My family has 4 cars so I use mine all the time. Great investment not to mention useful for...

    RPM Tesla Matte Carbon Fiber Dashboard Replacement

    Picked it up on Amazon. It's been on there about a year now and is holding up great. Matches the factory pedals perfectly and has prevented any carpet wear, as I use that area to dest my foot when I drive. Highly recommended...

    Tesla installed strings in parallel on 7.6 Inverter

    Mine looks exactly like this. Don't know why, or if it's good or bad, just a data point. Tim

    Best Tire Inflator Help Needed

    Great choice! Use mine pretty regularly between our 4 cars, but it lives in the trunk of my Tesla. Like f308gt4, I top off the battery once a quarter. Tim

    Model 3 trunk beeping twice and stopping halfway?

    I suspect you are correct, Sir. Tim

    Wait times for Solar?

    You have a lot longer to wait, my friend! Order to install date, at least in my case, is about 5 months. Tim

    Wait times for Solar?

    My install has been scheduled for 6/3. Tim

    New Obligations Required for Install

    Yep. I figured there was some serious issue, inspection, or some work to do. Clearing the crap out of the way was the last thing I expected, and they already call that out in the installation preparation video. Tim
  41. TBrownTX

    New Obligations Required for Install

    That is exactly right. When I called, the Advisor had to pull the notes to see what the issue was. I’m my case, it was clearing the area, but I suspect is could be anything as you suggest. And now that I called, the “obligations” message has cleared. Tim
  42. TBrownTX

    New Obligations Required for Install

    Called Tesla, mystery solved. Basically, they told me I needed to move the stuff away from the wall on the side of the garage near my main panel. So “obligations” meant “move your crap”. Tim

    New Obligations Required for Install

    Never saw anything like that going through the process, but I'll do so anyhow. Thank you for the information! Tim

    Nope replaced about 4 years ago w/ a new roof, no hail damage since. Tim

    New Obligations Required for Install

    Yes have an HOA, and have the signed approval letter but Tesla has not asked for it (yet). Tim

    Get the blue! Outstanding color. Tim

    New Obligations Required for Install

    I finally have my install scheduled for June 3rd. Today I logged in to check my account t and had a new message. “New Obligations Required for Install. We’ve learned there will be some obligations we need you to complete prior to install. Your advisor will reach out with more details.”...

    Full sized spare tire for Model 3?

    100& - Mine is a commuter car, so I plan to use it exactly as you describe if ever needed. We take the Wife's SUV when we road trip. Tim
