    Weird charging error while driving?

    I've been driving my Model 3 for about a week. I've been getting an odd error and was wondering if it's happened for anyone else. Sporadically (maybe once every 50 miles?), while driving I get a warning beep and an error pops up on my screen for a second or so that says something like...

    Good to see you around, too! Congrats on your (soon to be) Model 3!

    AWD delivery thread

    Mine doesn't. Forgot to ask if/how they wanted to add it. I don't really care if I have it or not, so I'll probably just let it be.

    AWD delivery thread

    Assuming all goes as planned, I'm taking delivery today of my 3 today in Dedham. (AWD, MSM, 18's) Since everything seemingly has to happen at once, I'll have just enough time to drive it home and then leave the country for 10 days.

    Wiki Model 3 Order Tracking Spreadsheet

    For another data point re: your post and @Bokonon above, I got my VIN and delivery date about a week ago. However, I got the call/email while on the road for work and between being busy and then slipping my mind when I finally got free, I didn't actually update my entry in the sheet until...

    Wiki Model 3 Order Tracking Spreadsheet

    You might want to start a separate thread to mention this. As far as I know you're the first person assigned an AWD VIN and given the amount of speculation still going on regarding when that might happen in other threads, it's not clear people have noticed. (Deferring to the mods, of course...

    The Mystery of the Edit Button

    @FishMann Interesting, makes me wonder if there are slightly different rules in the background for RWD and AWD. For example there is a much higher chance that someone with no edit button has a VIN behind the scenes if they ordered a RWD model. People have mentioned changing the status of...

    The Mystery of the Edit Button

    Thanks - good to know. I've seen some people comment that it disappeared shortly before getting scheduled for delivery. There's a reasonable chance that's just random or confirmation bias, so I was curious what others saw/have seen. In any case, it hasn't disappeared for everyone. Also...

    The Mystery of the Edit Button

    For those who have configured, there seems to be some randomness to whether or not you have an "Edit" button after configuration and ordering. A few theories: - It's random or buggy - It goes away after a set period of time (e.g. 24 hours after configuration) - It goes away when something...

    So who actually has configured their P or AWD?

    ACH on day of delivery

    I paid with ACH on day of delivery for my Model X.

    1st day line waiter, got your AWD invite, please post your reservation time here

    Thanks - I had thought of UTC, but incorrectly had -5 for EST stuck in my head so that wasn't making sense. Given that -4 is correct, that probably means my memory is just off by half an hour for when I reserved.

    FYI - for those that want to post (or look up) the precise time that Tesla has for your reservation, you can do the following: Go to the configuration/design page View the page source Ctrl-f to search the source for "reservationDate" The date after the colon is the timestamp Tesla has for your...

    Wiki Model 3 delivery estimator

    @Troy I was wondering what you thought about some logic on Tesla's part regarding configuration vs. delivery. I am an East Coast, day one, owner reservation and just got my invite to configure. I want an AWD and so am waiting. However, Tesla says my delivery estimate is 4 weeks if I take a LR...

    Wiki Model 3 delivery estimator

    @Troy A line you may be interested in from today's shareholder letter released by Tesla: "Dual Motor All-Wheel Drive configurations will be available in the U.S. early next year." The "early next year" deliveries may be employees only, but nevertheless implies Tesla is probably doing some...

    Wiki Model 3 delivery estimator

    @Troy Thanks for pulling this all together. Great help/resource! Two things I'd add: 1) At least Tesla will now get a better idea of what people want through the Delivery Estimator tool. The number of people selecting AWD, even with the long lead times, may surprise them. 2) The one aspect...

    Wiki Model 3 delivery estimator

    I agree this makes modeling tricky. From your prior comments, I assume you know this, but for others who might not.... Info from earnings calls and shareholder meetings is more accurate than marketing info. Companies (and executives) have way more legal leeway to "manage expectations" with...

    For what it's worth, just prior to yesterday's event Elon said they currently have "over half a million" reservations total. See the second to last paragraph here: Pared-down electric experience: Driving one of the first Model 3s off the line

    Wiki Model 3 delivery estimator

    @Troy and @ModelNforNerd Two things to consider based on my Model X reservation/production ramp experience: Tesla is likely managing expectations with the estimated dates. When I converted my reservation to an order for my X, I was given an expected delivery range of "Fall 2016". I took...

    Model 3 Projected 0-60 Times

    I have no idea. I built the chart based on the current offering for the Model S, which does not include a large battery RWD. I don't think anyone really knows if that will be an option for the Model 3 or not. (outside of Tesla anyway)

    Model 3 Projected 0-60 Times

    Audi and BMW quote 7.1s for their competing base models 0-60 times (A4 and 320i). 5.6s is fast compared to that. You'd need to get up to models in the $50k-ish range to get sedans with a 5s-5.2s 0-60 time. A Model 3 75D would need to beat 5 seconds to be ahead of the competition at that...

    Model 3 Projected 0-60 Times

    I suspect 2.6s is more a bound on what they could do vs. what they will do. I suspect a time in the 3-3.5s range is more likely for a P75DL.

    Model 3 Projected 0-60 Times

    To me? Definitely not. That said, a fully loaded BMW 7-series is much more than double the price of a fully loaded 3-series (and a loaded 5-series is about 50% more). At the high end of premium consumer products, there is usually a segment of people willing to pay large percentage increases...

    Model 3 Projected 0-60 Times

    Yeah - if I had to make a solid guess, I suspect a Model 3 75D would have a 4.4s time. This would match an Audi S4 and would be in keeping with Tesla's benchmarking of the Model 3 to the Audi A4 line. That would also leave a lot of room for the Model 3 PDL version to be well in excess of...

    Model 3 Projected 0-60 Times

    I was struck by how very close the base Model 3 0-60 time is to the base Model S. With that apparent disclosure of the base Model 3 0-60 time we can then estimate the 0-60 times of the likely upgraded models. Assumptions: The base Model 3 will have a 0-60 time of 5.6s The most likely battery...

    Confirmation - you can add accessory or towing package after delivery

    FYI - talked to my SC yesterday. Details for those interested: Helps to give the part number (1111273-00-A), this is a very new service and most places won't have seen it yet. Cost is $1,250. Wait time to schedule the add-on is ~2 weeks (likely varies by SC). Parts are available, but not...

    Consumer Reports: Model X - Least Reliable Car?

    This is a key point. If you read the CR article, they note that the first year or two of a new model's introduction or redesign will usually have reliability issues - no matter the manufacturer. There is an inherent trade-off between reliability and innovation. They refer to this with their...

    Accessory tow hitch part #

    Not especially new info, but I checked with Tesla service centers and a Tesla certified body shop about getting an accessory hitch added on my X after delivery. (should have gotten it at the time I ordered, but oh well) As @Saghost mentions, I also just have an empty space under the rear cover...

    Can you drive with the trunk open?

    We are planning to pick up some long items in our X and it would be helpful to have them stick out the back. (i.e. in the back with the trunk partially open) Has anyone tried this? Any tips on where to attach bungie cords or keeping the car beeping at us the whole time?

    Is anyone else hating the auto door open upon keyfob unlock?

    I think this is the best suggestion. The default unlock wouldn't risk opening into traffic, but it's effectively no extra work to have the door open for you.

    FWD Stops Short

    FYI - picking up my X from the SC today. The FWD stopping short is a known issue and, at least in some cases, is due to a wire for a sensor sliding down in front of the sensor inside the door. (i.e. The door starts to go down, the wire shifts slightly due to the change in angle and movement...

    Trunk Closing Problem

    Thanks for the info. Luckily we live about 15 min from the SC, so pretty easy for us to take it in - just a pain and a bit disappointing.

    Trunk Closing Problem

    The 2 remaining are: - One FWD stops short of closing with an "obstacle detected" error about 30% of the time. No effect when recalibrated. - One middle row seat does not tilt. (Forward and back works fine) It's going into the SC tomorrow.

    Trunk Closing Problem

    We picked up our new 75D last Friday and encountered a problem I don't remember seeing described here. (We also have one FWD door with the phantom "obstacle detected" problem, but that seems sadly common.) Around a third of the time when pressing the button to close the trunk, it will go all...

    FWD Stops Short

    Took delivery of my car today and looks like my passenger side FWD has the "stops short" problem about 30% of the time. (didn't notice at the SC - in retrospect it did it once there, but at the time I thought it was two of us hitting buttons at the same time) I can try a FWD re-calibration on...

    Model X Insurance

    This has been mentioned elsewhere, but as a public service reminder... If you are getting anything other than a "90", make sure to have the insurance company confirm that they are using the correct value of the car. Most insurance companies will resolve the VIN of the car (and hence the value)...

    Model X July Deliveries

    Nope, scheduled for 3pm. How is the car so far and how was the delivery experience? p.s. Even though they were made at the same time, I found out that our cars likely didn't come out together because they found something on mine during QA at the factory. Delayed it a bit on that end (and then...

    2 kids - S versus X

    It's a non-financial reason, but for what it's worth, we did the X because of 2 kids, plus friends and grandparents. The S (or any car, really) is fine when it's only the 4 of us. However, with 5 seats vs. 6, only one kid can take a friend if we want to go somewhere. Also, we live close to...

    Model X July Deliveries

    I don't remember the exact words, but they said it was still at the factory awaiting pickup. Main thing from them was that they would have more information once it was actually being transported and they had the transportation manifest. They estimated arrival in Dedham late next week...

    Model X July Deliveries

    Our X is still at the factory awaiting transport as of today - apparently not much got done last week that wasn't related to end of quarter factory deliveries. :-) Between transport and final prep at the SC, likely looking at something like the very end of next week. (~15th) They were careful...
