    Vendor Open Source DIY Model 3 Console Wrap Template

    Hi @Kenriko , just installed the brushed black metal kit! Your video was super informative and the tips you gave were spot on. I pieced together your strategy and installed the very thin strip at the very top without much issues. Question : What are the two bonus '3' logos used for? Or, if its...

    And white. Wow. Does anyone know a reason why? Are they more difficult/expensive to pull off?

    There's a model 3 meetup on Sunday at Tsawwassen at 5pm started by a Facebook group. Turns out there is at least one person offering test drives for the 3 there! I might pop by to meet with the kin.

    [Poll]: What was your last car before you ordered (or reserved) Tesla Model 3?

    Corolla here. I haven't driven anything else. Almost gave myself a heart attack on my first launch. 10/10 would do it again.

    they still have problems getting the cars over the border huh?

    What do you hate about your M3?

    ohh! oops. Sorry I meant Downtown Vancouver. I thought that was what you meant... :) Bummer.

    What do you hate about your M3?

    I'm bringing her in to DT as well today for work. If I see a red model 3 I'll honk! You'll know that was me.

    Surprisingly, I don't get that many looks. Being a white car, I guess it looks too much like an S from the back, and a bit like a Porsche from the front, so no one even glances. I did get a very big smile from a guy beside me one night though. I'm quite happy that way. I dont want to attract...

    Me! I'm not in Victoria though. Are you still in Vancouver? Edit: I think I just missed you. Dang it.

    It was very smooth, ICBC is high balling the insurance because "it is an expensive car to repair". There were very few people.. I was probably the only one picking up a 3. Everyone was all smiles, friendly, and seemed genuinely excited that I was going to drive away in a 3. The trade in was...

    I have the lugs and caps at home as well, but I decided not to take off the aeros. They are so iconic for the 3 I have actually come to accept it and even love it. I waited so long for this thing, I will love it as it is. For now

    I did, I had a 1030 appointment. Are you there now?

    Lucky you! I got an ugly red color. Just kidding the red is gorgeous. :D

    Yeah, that's what I thought, so I mentioned it to him. He said they didn't have enough of them so they are just giving it to the first 200 deliveries. In any case, I'm a day 3 reservation holder, but I have a die cast model.
  19. Padfutonian

    Also I was told the first 200 or so model 3 deliveries get the die cast.. I got one

    I didn't believe anything until I saw my car. I was almost ready to get sent back home... Fortunately, its real and I just brought her home.

    You know what's interesting... Someone here told me that my car came in a few days ago. I mentioned that's interesting and told him that I was cancelled yesterday because I was told it was stuck at the border, and he immediately backed off and said yeah they are probably right. Weird
  22. Padfutonian

    The delivery stuck! I'm picking up now! I just met with her. She is beautiful

    I got a call back and rescheduled for tomorrow morning. Hopefully this one sticks.
  24. Padfutonian

    The guy told me the same thing, same day turnover once they get it... Or they'll try. I'm just a bit concerned because of the mass, unexpected and unexplained delays. My car was due to arrive last night, supposedly. I think that's a bit tight of a time frame; the night before a promised delivery.
  25. Padfutonian

    Vancouver BC VIN .

    I guess so. I gave the number a call back and he told me they swap trucks at the border as they move some cars up to Alberta. So they are waiting for a truck now. Still doesn't explain @Lewisball 's situation. Any updates on that?
  26. Padfutonian

    Vancouver BC VIN .

    Something sounds fishy here.
  27. Padfutonian

    Vancouver BC VIN .

    I saw the number and almost didn't want to pick up...:(

    Looks like we might be broken-down-truck-mates. Tesla Vancouver didn't specify why it was delayed, but I assume this is the reason.
  29. Padfutonian

    Vancouver BC VIN .

    Got the call from Tesla - I got delayed too. Sigh

    does someone have a model x they can be so kind to lend to tow that thing over?
  33. Padfutonian

    This. My ISA called me after I shot him an email for advice moving forward. He sent me an estimated amount to write out the bank draft for and said to bring personal cheques to cover the difference during delivery.

    ooooohh i see a white with aerosss

    the silver lining is that your model 3 will probably be 10 generations ahead of ours.

    And so it begins! :):):)

    Was that a reschedule or your confirmed schedule?
  38. Padfutonian

    Vancouver BC VIN .

    They might try and push the whole chain backwards, but I figured it'll be a domino scale logistical disaster to pull that off..
  39. Padfutonian

    Vancouver BC VIN .

    Wow. Is it just you, or did an entire shipment get delayed?
  40. Padfutonian

    Vancouver BC VIN .

    Congratulations Kira! Looks like that push was indeed needed. I'd recommend taking the reins a bit here, they seem really disorganized.
  41. Padfutonian

    Don't forget that after the tax deduction you'll be saving an extra.. 5 ish thousand? That brings your effective trade in to 39100.

    Vancouver Cable Swap

    Not sure if there's a thread like this lying around, but as we get closer to delivery, let's talk cables! As I know, the car comes with a usb c and lightning. I'm looking for another c. My delivery date is the 6th of June!

    My trade in quote was about 10-20% lower than the offers I was getting outside. I guess I was lucky.
  44. Padfutonian

    Vancouver BC VIN .

    What about the trade in is going to delay it?
  45. Padfutonian

    Vancouver BC VIN .

    Just an update! My account page now shows me my full vin. My delivery is this day next week. Showing up one week before delivery checks out. Edit: it's the same vin as the checkout page.

    Apparently, the last 1-2 weeks of waiting is harder than the first two years combined. I heard it goes by quickly though. Just painfully.
  47. Padfutonian

    Vancouver BC VIN .

    Me too! No VIN except for the wall connector checkout, car page still showing RN, but the delivery appointment date and location is now showing.

    It does! My biggest pain/wait was that I didn't know when anything was going to happen, only guesses and hopes. Now that things are set in stone, I feel much more at ease. Obviously, I'm excited, but this is more of a 'enjoy the ride' since everything's taken care of already. I hope you get...

    I have a feeling that everyone's delivery dates are all set already, if you received the ISA email. There seems to be no correlation between when the ISA calls you to schedule and the date that you are offered. The only difference i think is the time slots. A lot of calls are going out, i...
