    Hit a Pothole; Tesla Service Center does not have replacement tires

    Thanks for the tip; I ended up going with the Pilot Sport 4S on the back and placed the 2 good Pirelli’s in the front. It was better than waiting 2+ weeks for Tesla to take care of it, likely at a higher price. It was on the Jeffrey exit on the 405 S. I passed by it today and it appeared to be...

    Hit a Pothole; Tesla Service Center does not have replacement tires

    I agree. I would consider swapping all 4 for PS4's, but the cost is halfway to something like the tire-wheel combo from TSportline. It may be better to swap for 18's to mitigate this in the future.

    Hit a Pothole; Tesla Service Center does not have replacement tires

    Here's a close-up of one of the bubbles. They are admittedly quite small, but I'm not risking a total rupture:

    Hit a Pothole; Tesla Service Center does not have replacement tires

    So, recent 2021 Model 3 purchaser here. With the introduction of the 2021 model, Tesla has begun outfitting the Performance variant with custom versions of the Pirelli P Zero PZ4 with noise cancellation. As such, these tires are extremely rare. So much so that apparently even Tesla doesn't have...

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    Has there been any concrete evidence of this? Seems to be mostly hearsay with mixed responses from sales reps.

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    Sorry to see that many have been pushed potentially to March, but I'm happy for all of us that managed to get matched! Been driving constantly during my time off these last couple of weeks and it's been nothing short of expectations. Hope everyone enjoys as much as I have!

    I think that must be the angle; looks fine to me, and the black trim appears to line up well.

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    As far as I can tell, they are just like the old ones. I’ll try and get a closer look tomorrow, but I don’t think so sadly

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    Took delivery today in Irvine (Costa Mesa DC). I was actually able to show up a bit earlier because my car was ready. Despite being a demo, car was almost impeccable. The one flaw was a small blemish in the headliner and a scratch inside the door jamb, which I’ve already scheduled an appointment...

    If you open and close the Plaid dialogue, Tesla should give you the option to manually enter your routing and account number.

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    I think your SA means there are no more M3P available in Canada, and there's no way they'd be able to build and ship them to you this quarter when they still have backorders in the US to fill.

    SR/SR+ (Model 3 RWD) Waiting Room

    Someone on Reddit says 248 miles. Again, though, I'd not put too much stock in what the car derives for this value.

    SR/SR+ (Model 3 RWD) Waiting Room

    This is sort of irrelevant. The battery is almost never perfectly calibrated.

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    Lol, just got a call from Tesla, indicating that the car has just been assigned a truck to come down today (I got assigned a VIN on Tuesday), Saturday was supposed to be tentative with high likelihood of an earlier delivery, and now the car might not even be ready tomorrow morning because they...

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    So although I'm scheduled to take delivery tomorrow morning, the car has not moved from its spot in LA (it's a demo). When I asked the rep if it'll be at the delivery center, inspected, and cleaned before tomorrow morning, he confidently said yes. We'll see. I don't want to place payment before...

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    This doesn’t sound right; are you sure they haven’t just asked you to select your payment type/apply for financing?
  17. adregia

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    Right now, this Saturday morning tentatively, but it could move to tomorrow if I'm lucky!

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    If you already have a VIN, it could be worth a shot, but if not, this will only delay your order.

    2021 Model 3 and differences from 2020

    The EPA requires the manufacturer to submit three target coefficients (available here) that play into a formula that looks something like follows: A + Bv + Cv^2 = road force in ft lbf. If you can do some math, you can multiply by any given velocity (i.e., 70 mph), convert ft lbf into kWh, and...

    2021 Model 3 and differences from 2020

    I was also considering this, but those Ubers look too good. Maybe for road trips.

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    Wow, somehow I scrolled past these pictures when I wrote my last response. My last car from Tesla had similar gaps/alignment issues to these photos, and I thought it was within acceptable limits. I must not have an eye for that sort of thing haha

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    Yeah, I’m not too worried given what I’ve heard in most circumstances around demo cars. And if there are obvious defects, I’d just ask to fix them; they generally will repair anything like curb rash, paint defects, etc. as though it were a brand new car according to most online.
  24. adregia

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    Yeah, that could be. I’m picking up mine with about 200 miles sometime in the next couple of days, so I’ll be sure to let you know how it is!
  25. adregia

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    I would’ve been under the impression that demo vehicles are better quality so as to survive more scrutiny (and, in my personal experience, this tends to be true).

    A small price to pay for a healthy dose of pettiness :cool:

    I believe the old "line" on the old open buttons lights up, as well, no?

    2021 Model 3 and differences from 2020

    Sorry if this is a stupid question, but can one assume that because the heat pump also dissipates heat, should this have an impact on energy usage when cooling the car?
  31. adregia

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    I'd think that once a VIN is assigned, the newer, more granular estimate becomes more accurate, barring any unforeseen circumstances (delays in transportation/damage to the car).
  32. adregia

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    That seems a bit odd; I talked to someone around the same time I ordered and got assigned him as my SA, even though I ordered online. That would make sense! Still waiting on the text. It was pretty late in the day, so I’d imagine I’ll hear something tomorrow.
  33. adregia

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    I haven’t been contacted about delivery, but my SA recommended in LA to expedite things.
  34. adregia

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    It's easy for me to be optimistic now, but with the way inventory cars are popping up every night, I'd say keep the faith and keep a strong lookout. If you see FSD, you can always get it removed.
  35. adregia

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    Yeah! Only 200 miles, so I'm not stressed about it. I'm sure it'll look great!
  36. adregia

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    Yep! I called him as soon as I saw it. Took him about an hour to match me for some reason, but he did it!
  37. adregia

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    I just got matched to the red one in LA. My SA was able to remove FSD for me!
  38. adregia

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    SHHH. I'm trying to get matched! :D

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    I mean, I maybe wouldn't have sold my car and have rushed to complete financing like they told me to if there was any transparency. As @eisenb11 highlights above, the not-knowing, the uncertainty, and the broken promises are all just a lot to bear.
  40. adregia

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    I know your pain. I was told by my SA that late November was likely and early December at the latest when I ordered back on October 20. Now, it's looking like I might even get my car later than I did last year, when I ordered nearly 2 weeks earlier this time.

    Uh....wow. Congrats, I guess.

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    I guess it must be a sprint; they can't sustain this level of production indefinitely, but can do it for a couple of weeks if it means hitting a quarterly record.
  44. adregia

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    I also feel that the black interior will better match with the new black trim and wheels.
  45. adregia

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    At least in California, you can get an E-ink plate that’s digital (can even display custom messages if the car is stolen, for example).

    Call me a pessimist, but I just don’t believe it. Specifically, the last part.
  47. adregia

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    I'm in the western half (in fact, quite close to Fremont) and my estimate changed to weeks, as well (though it's technically the same estimate haha).

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    Last year, I received my car 3 days after finding my VIN in source.
  49. adregia

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    This guy! Closer to the factory, ordered 3 days ago, and somehow has a VIN number with almost the same configuration as me and many others, I'm sure, who've been waiting 8+ weeks with nothing.

    Certainly. New & Used Electric Cars | Tesla And if you want more granular filters, I recommend https://ev-cpo.com. Granted, their links to listings are sometimes very slightly outdated/expired (what you deal with when some of them turnover in minutes).
