    Refreshed 2021+ Model X and Model X Plaid waiting room

    When I saw the hold, I called Tesla. I was told they were doing this to figure who actually plans on getting the car. Apparently for the Xes they get a lot of deposits that are later forfeited: “We have to assign VINs as many of seven times before someone takes the vehicle.”.

    Refreshed 2021+ Model X and Model X Plaid waiting room

    It is not. They just take them. I’ve never had a problem and the last one in September was my fourth Tesla.

    Nope. Just plain old check. o_O

    Yeah but then the dealers are very committed: they will spare no expense to fix your problems. 😒

    Refreshed 2021+ Model X and Model X Plaid waiting room

    Last year with my S the updated price didn’t show up until the day before. I also wrote a check on the spot rather than doing any of the other hooey.

    Refreshed 2021+ Model X and Model X Plaid waiting room

    This is exactly what happened last year with the new Model Ses. In particular, I had a month for my EDD, then one day everyone moved to some point far in the future, then two or three days later, there were new dates, mine was a few weeks. As the time got closer it narrowed to a week. IIRC, it...

    Me, too, but it’s a six seater. I don’t remember when I ordered it. Actually, the same thing happened when I ordered my Plaid S: indeterminate date, suddenly it moved multiple months away, two days later I suddenly had a date range, and then shortly after a VIN. Or something like that.

    Ah, so just like it was in September. It’s nice to know there are constants in the universe.

    Refreshed 2021+ Model X and Model X Plaid waiting room

    I ordered the day of the announcement for the plaid (well it was plaid+ then) S and I got mine long after many folks who ordered >6 months after I did. A combination of living far from California and carbon fiber meant a long wait. Actually, my S sat in Cali and later Birmingham for weeks...

    So I didn’t read this thread for a couple of days and I see that 30 pages filled up. What’d I miss?

    BTW, I took mine in. They said it was a loose UHF antenna. Now it works sporadically. I guess I have to take it back?

    2021+ Model S and Model S Plaid Refresh Issues Thread

    Well, I dropped off the car Friday morning to have the charge port and the passenger restraint system error looked at. Between the PPF, the caliper painting, and this, I’ve only driven my car a few days since I picked it up 9/9. Anyway, I came back Saturday to get a loaner (blue 100D S with...

    I think so. Tesla just delivered three extra ones to my house last night. “Gotta get those numbers! Enjoy!”, he said, then drove off into the night like a trucker Santa Claus.

    You’re describing my experience. 2012 P85 delivered to my house because there was no other way at the time in Georgia. Amazing. Then a P90D. Now a Plaid. I will say this: 2021.5 is beyond next level. 1970s special effects to 2021 special effects.

    Yoke airbag line is really noticeable?

    I have the same. I only ever remember or notice it when I see a thread like this one. I'd appreciate it if y'all would stop bringing it up.

    I told him that's how I got tall and he'd never be taller than me without doing it. He didn't really buy it, but he's taking no chances. It's pretty clear he's convinced that once he's taller than me, he runs the house. If only that were true....

    1. Butler! I’ve used them. 2. Oh, bad experience. 3. Ha, ha, I’ve got a PhD from MIT, but can’t draw a straight line with a ruler. I am not changing my wheels myself.

    I dunno. I meant wheels, not tires. It’s been a long day. Actually, what I really want is new wheels and newly painted calipers.
  27. H

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    Okay, fine, but then how do I get them installed? I’m thinking about swapping in new tires, but…. edit: …I don’t know what I’m saying. I mean wheels.

    That’s what I was thinking. I’m contractually obligated to avoid that much red and black though.

    I may do it later this year. I have to stare at the car for awhile as is first. You may. I’ll probably frame it.

    The carbon fiber T on the front of a black car does look great. In my case, getting that to work in the back was going to be too much trouble, so I punted.

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    I had my T in the front replaced with a carbon fiber one. I had the T & PLAID on the back painted gloss black (contrasts the now satin panels). They look tight, as the Pitch Guy would say. I could have had PLAID removed—they offered—but, that’s what it is and I’m not a fan of debadging. I do...

    Today feels like another delivery day. After pick up 9/9 I barely had time with the car before turning it over for PPF, tinting, and probably something else. After discovering that the paint repair on my fender wasn't completely baked, I found myself having to wait another week to get the car...

    My wife has a 2013 S. I’ve had to drive it a lot the last week and I just can’t get comfortable. Mostly I cannot stretch my legs. The P90D I had was fine but after a couple of hours I am reminded that I’m old and my legs are older. That does not seem to be a problem for the latest one.

    So, apparently we are twins. Seemed like there was more room than in my P90D.
