    Who has ordered?

    So after playing with the idea since they first did the unveiling, I went ahead and pulled the trigger on my pre-order of the tri-motor, AWD, FSD model today. My thoughts are that when it comes time to actually place my order, I will either push it out a bit if necessary, or, I will quickly...

    All these tire threads have me...tired

    I am on 19" Sport Wheels. I am home now but I noted that later in my drive which was on secondary and back roads, all with the sound off, I did not notice anything but the most minimal of noise. For context, I have a hypersensitivity to noise and right now I have a migraine which makes it...

    All these tire threads have me...tired

    Sure! Currently I am driving home in holiday traffic on I-95, without any music or other sounds, and I can barely hear the tires moving over the road. It's kind of like a whisper. Also, the roads are wet, and the traction is pretty good. I wouldn't race in them, but they grip the road fairly...

    All these tire threads have me...tired

    As an overall picture, I never really paid attention to the range on my 3 but I think I get comparable range based on my driving habits, similar to the results I got with the original tires. It is important to note though that warm weather range is different than cold weather range (as you...

    All these tire threads have me...tired

    Okay I got the tires on (Bridgestone Turanza QuietTracks), passed inspection and drove some of my more crappy roads home. These tires are so fecking...QUIET! They are quieter than the OEM tires by a significant enough margin that I will recommend them (based on early road testing). Should...

    Thanks for the link, I will check these out. I do have Bridgestone Turanza QuietTracks ordered for install tomorrow (different shop, slightly lower price and CLOSER TO ME, lol). This is a new tire so I will let you guys know how it performs for noise transference.

    All these tire threads have me...tired

    No, I drive far more than that a year. I got 30k miles out of them. That's also 30k miles with me teleworking at least 26 days a year (mostly likely 50 with other factors thrown in), having holidays off (all Federal), vacation time, etc.

    All these tire threads have me...tired

    Ugh, so I was unable to find any places with the Altimas in stock and decided to go with the Bridgestone Turanza QuietTrack tires that I was quoted on by Virginia Tire & Auto. They said they could get them in today (ordered yesterday from Baltimore) and at 0930 I called to verify they were...

    All these tire threads have me...tired

    But seriously, reading these tire threads about winter tires, summer tires, performance tires, staggered tires, hot tires, cold tires, red tires, yellow tires; if you find a better tire, BUY IT!, has made me tired. I am confused and not even close to a performance/look guy. All I want are...

    Homelink woes

    After reading and rereading this multiple times since my last post (and going to the link I was referred to), I decided to redo the programming. As I went through the programming, I found myself holding the garage door opener in front of the bumper as instructed in another video I found. At...

    Glitch while driving: Concerning

    Come to think of it, that area of I95 has issues with cell signal from time to time. While I am not saying it is or isn't related, it is certainly something I will note next time (if there is a next time; I hope there isn't).

    Glitch while driving: Concerning

    Thank you! I will call immediately next time I have an issue, because I was not aware of the post log issue. It is reasonable to consider that the logs would only last so long before they were overwritten.

    Glitch while driving: Concerning

    Correct, there was no regen. Until you asked this question, I had not thought of it but I do recall checking to see if I was getting regen during the times it was not accelerating and my foot was not on any of the pedals; it did not indicate any regen at all. On a possibly unrelated note...

    Glitch while driving: Concerning

    I'm a bit confused by your questions. First, let me clarify one point; the car never slowed or braked on its own. I had to apply the brake myself. TACC was not working. I could not access ANY features related to driving and EA. I did not have any of the features enabled because every...

    Glitch while driving: Concerning

    I'm not sure that it is related to regen braking. The car never slowed or braked, it would only increase speed. Actually at least one of those times it was more like a slight surge in speed, 3-5 mph increase, whereas the other times it was a 1 mph increase until I applied the brake. In any...

    Glitch while driving: Concerning

    While driving home today, I had autosteer, autopilot, and traction control all shut off. Automatic emergency braking also shut off and it told me to contact Tesla service. In addition, the car would at times accelerate on its own, even when my foot was off the pedal (from 40-46 and 60-64)...

    Phone as Key Issues

    I have had this issue the past 2 days as well, however, restarting the app has done nothing for me. It is annoying to have to dig out the card just to use it. Thankfully I keep the card on my person at all times after inadvertently locking my phone and card in the car when playing with the...

    How much is Tesla spending to re-paint cars?

    According to the guy who did my delivery, my car and others at the shop were shipped in covered containers.

    Home charging question with no way to install charger currently

    Alright, I'm taking the "L" and I owe an apology to @Rocky_H. I ran the charger kit that came with the car when I got home and was actually pulling 3-4, depending on the draw. This was just a 5 minute test but I did not feel like sitting there to see if there was any other number that I came...

    Home charging question with no way to install charger currently

    On this particular attempt, I got 12mph. I could have redone it to further prove my point but there is no need. I'm sorry that you assume you know more than you do but you are wrong. *Gotta upload the correct pic...* With a slower charger I have to let the car sit a bit before I can get more...

    Home charging question with no way to install charger currently

    In my haste to type that out before going to the store, I made an error. That should read; when plugged into a standard electrical outlet, I achieved 13-14 miles of range per hour. This means it would have taken me 48+ hours to get to my target goal of 280 miles of range, according to the...

    I have gone down to 75, however, I will try something within the range you noted. Thanks!

    Homelink woes

    The issue I have with Homelink, is that unless I am misunderstanding how it is supposed to work, the door should automatically open or close when you get within the preselected distance of the garage. Mine does not do this. I have to manually select open/close.

    App question/wish

    When I locked my phone and key in the car the very first day, I had to download the app on my wife's phone so that I could get in. That was great, however, I was not aware until then that the app shows the location of where your car is parked. This is our 10th year anniversary and I am in the...

    3D Maxpider Kagu Mats for Model 3

    Someone mentioned earlier in the thread that it was coming to Amazon, is this still true? I saw earlier in the thread where it was mentioned this was on the horizon. A search of Amazon turns up other floor mats for the "S" and the "X" but not the "3". Thanks!

    Customizing Model 3 interior

    If you take a bit off of his commentary, Tampa is right. But also one must consider that all of that extra stuff you see in your photo is required to adjust various settings. The 3 only requires the single screen and it controls everything. I am very much an interior guy but I have just a single...

    Speculation on 200,000th Vehicle

    The current speculation is that Tesla is trying to make sure the most amount of people can get the max credit by shipping cars to Canada. I do not know if this is officially the stance, but it sounds good.

    Just took delivery of my M3...my thoughts

    As I sit here recovering from my AWESOME sound system, I have a few tips. First, you can use the checklist to make sure your M3 is tip top, however, do not go into the appointment expecting problems. If you notice stuff, fine, but do not fear it right off. Let the inspection determine that...

    Paying for your car...

    I doubt that he would know as he is only referencing other threads on the board where it was mentioned. I saw the thread myself, however, I could not tell you where it is at, nor the subject line. That said, I got the cashier's check because I prefer not to write checks that large off my account.

    Front License Plate Bracket For Tesla Model 3

    Thanks for pointing that out (I did not notice it before). I cannot find any clear information about the processor so I will just wait to find something that I can purchase through a merchant I already trust with my CC info. Identity theft is no joke (which I am not implying would happen here...

    Ways to surprise wife with Model 3

    In reading his original post, it seems apparent that the purchase is agreed upon, it is the timeline that was not firmed up or agreed upon yet. His belief is it will be okay because she's already indicated that she wants it now.

    Would You Take Delivery?

    Maybe I should try to stay away from these boards for the next 3-5 days so that I do not worry myself over whether or not my car will have any issues (scratches, dirty finger prints on the interior lining, panel gaps, headlight protrusions, chips/scuffs/scratches in the paint, pano roof issues...

    ISA Communications / Scheduled Deliveries
