    Car in Shop waiting for Headlights which are on National Backorder

    Let me know if this belongs in a different section. Im half looking for help/suggestions and half just venting my frustration So I got in a minor accident (not at fault) in my 2021 LR M3 just before Christmas. A car hit my front drivers side corner so the major pieces i needed to replace are...

    Question about Brake Lights

    I have a question about the break lights. Because of the strong regenerative break limits the need to use the actual break pedal (aka 1 pedal driving) does anyone have a link to detailed info on when/how exactly the taillights light up to indicate to other drivers that you are slowing down? I...

    Orbital Wheel Covers

    wondering if you've taken the covers off to see if this worked to prevent scratches to the rims? i reached out to Rimetrix and should be getting a tracking number for my orbitals within a week. i plan on going this route to try to prevent scratches.

    Orbital Wheel Covers

    those look good, where did you get them? are they designed to be aerodynamic like the orbitals and aero covers or just to look cool?

    Orbital Wheel Covers

    im interested in you wh/mi numbers with the orbitals. are you planning on switching out the covers part way through or do you have some good longer term wh/mi numbers for your aero covers and without covers?

    Orbital Wheel Covers

    Has anyone driven with these enough to comment on the efficiency? are these comparable to the standard aero covers?

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    i doubt that it will hold up your order, however i also doubt that you will want to go with Tesla for the trade in (unless you are trading in a Tesla). Tesla give really low ball offers for trades.

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    wow, sorry you have had a terrible experience. i picked my car up from the Devon SC on monday and other than waiting for about an hour because they were busy i didnt have any issues. I did a test drive at the tesla store in KOP last fall and got the contact info from the SA who helped me, i...

    This quarter they transitioned shipping MiC cars to Europe instead of shipping them from the US. Since you are in the UK it makes sense that you are getting a car from China

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    i got a text asking me to schedule my delivery appointment and when i went on the tesla site to schedule it i only had 3 days available (3/1-3/3). if you are asked to schedule and none of the available days work for you i would email your SA to see if they can help. i didnt have an issue with...

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    i do like that the white with black accent (instead of chrome) does lend itself to a stormtrooper vibe. i named my car Razor Crest, maybe more fitting if i had MSM but i dont care.

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    woohoo, got my car! so my appointment was 2pm yesterday. when i got to the SC they told me someone would be with me in 15 mins. 15 mins later a sales rep came out with my paperwork but let me know that they were running behind today my car was the next one up in the detail shop then they would...

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    my deliver date was like that for a while after my order was taken off hold (1/20) but then flipped back a forth between that and a more specific window for a few days before finally getting a VIN on 2/12. hopefully you are close to getting matched.

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    I tried a few more times with no luck. after getting an error message the first 2 attempts it just kept timing out for me after i submitted all my info. i ended up emailing my SA and he said he checked with his manager and that if i bring a blank check to my delivery appointment they can process...

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    oh noooo, i tried to link my bank account today for the final payment (pickup on 3/1) but i keep getting an error. should have expected this because i bank with a credit union. sent an email to my SA, hoping i can get this to work or that they will let me pay with a personal check. fingers crossed.

    it could also be the white interior, a lot of the people who got VIN's in the past couple weeks (myself included) have had black interiors

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    I also got the $1000 price reduction. delivery date still showing as 3/1. im financing the car and for some reason the $1000 was split between lowering my down payment and also financing less so my monthly payment is a bit lower. not sure why they did it that way but im not going to be picky...

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    not the guy who bought them, but the hidden case under the center console and the sliding console storage both interested me. a quick google search and i found both on amazon made by a company BASENOR. both look good and are reasonable priced. make sure to specify model year 2021 for the sliding...

    SR/SR+ (Model 3 RWD) Waiting Room

    last fall i did a test drive of a model 3 at the King of Prussia mall (philadelphia area) and met a sales rep who gave me his contact info.

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    i dont have first hand experience (waiting for my M3 LR AWD, delivery window 2/14-2/28) but i imagine once you get matched with a VIN that they will be flexible as to when you pick it up. it might be different if your window was right at the end of the quarter. if you are concerned you can reach...

    SR/SR+ (Model 3 RWD) Waiting Room

    This same thing happened to me. I ordered a LR on new years day, i got matched with a VIN right away and got a call to schedule pickup at the local service center on 1/4. I told them, like you, i was expecting late Feb or March for delivery so they unpaired me with the VIN and put my order on...
