    Supercharger- Thornton, NH

    Update - the holding company noted on the meeting agenda is also the holding company that owns Owls Nest - so definitely is up there. This is an awesome post and I’ll be a pretty frequent visitor when this is complete.

    Supercharger- Thornton, NH

    Yeah based on this - I definitely think it’s Owls Nest. I play golf up there and was chatting with the owner who didn’t confirm completely - but shared they’re installing Tesla chargers along with other EV spaces. Didn’t say “supercharger” but I’m sure this is it. Would make the most sense.

    The thing I thought I’d like the most about my Model 3 is the thing I like the least

    A huge part of the reason I bought my M3 was for the "self-driving" and autopilot features. I love the car and have no regrets, but definitely put too much stock into Tesla's claims about self-driving. My last car was a VW also, and I'm pretty disappointed with how, frankly, bad Tesla Autopilot...

    Range Loss Over Time, What Can Be Expected, Efficiency, How to Maintain Battery Health

    Hi All — I have a Gen 3 wall connector installed for my M3LR. Most of the time, during the week, I’m not driving too much, so I put my charge limit down to 60-65% to protect the battery. Overnight, I’ve also realized I can turn the Amps down through the app to charge slower. My charger is...

    New model 3 missing screw on left side undercarriage behind wheel… scheduled mobile service two weeks out. Any similar experience?

    Will do. I had a mobile service scheduled so just added this to that. Will mobile be sufficient or will they just send me to a service center?

    New model 3 missing screw on left side undercarriage behind wheel… scheduled mobile service two weeks out. Any similar experience?

    Gave it a try and unfortunately no luck. Seems like it just can’t catch a thread at all.

    New model 3 missing screw on left side undercarriage behind wheel… scheduled mobile service two weeks out. Any similar experience?

    I’m just not sure I feel comfortable drilling into the undercarriage of a brand new car… definitely don’t really know what I’m doing and would probably damage something.

    New model 3 missing screw on left side undercarriage behind wheel… scheduled mobile service two weeks out. Any similar experience?

    So I just got my new model 3 Monday and when I was looking to install my Tesla mud Flaps today I noticed that the left side never had a screw in it, and the new mud flap screw wouldn’t go in. Assuming there’s some problem with the threading. Soonest service I could get with Tesla is two weeks...

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    PSA All — after my pick-up last Monday where everything at delivery seemed okay, when I went to install my mud flaps the car was missing a bolt on the right side, and the new mud flap bolt won’t screw in at all. Check it at delivery because service is 2 weeks out.

    Supercharging/Battery Degradation Questions

    Good point… if it’s not really much of a choice probably shouldn’t spend much time thinking about it haha.

    Supercharging/Battery Degradation Questions

    I picked up a new Model 3 LR on Monday (yay!) and have been trying to educate myself on smart charging practices. My current situation allows me to charge with a Tesla Wall Connector at my primary residence where I can have the car plugged in and charged to 80%. On Thursday I travel to a...

    no fsd beta after 400 miles with a score of 100 for 7 days since requesting

    So what’s the general flow of this? I picked up my M3LR w/ FSD Monday and immediately clicked the request FSD beta button. How long does it usually take to get it - and does it just pop up at random?

    Are these the Matrix lights or the older ones? I’m not too certain on the difference, but everyone seems to find it pretty important, so wanted to find out.

    Reverse Camera - Black Screen

    this just happened to my brand new Model 3 after one day… tried the restart and don’t work. Hoping it fixes itself like all of you!

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    Graduated today!! 80 days exactly from order to delivery. No major issues with the car aside from some small scratches I wasn’t going to make a fuss about. Dealt with the usual “meh” service from my folks at the local Tesla center, but overall not too bad! Was in and out in about 90 minutes...

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    So tomorrow’s the big delivery day for me. Quick question for you all on trade-ins. I submitted my trade-in and accepted Tesla’s offer. I currently have a loan on the trade-in (which I submitted with the trade-in) that I have positive equity in which is put towards my M3. Since there’s a lien on...

    One week until my pick-up appointment… this is gonna be a long week. Final countdown!

    Supercharger- Thornton, NH

    So as someone who spends about half their time in this area, these ones are obviously important for me (and very exciting). I've been doing some more digging and my bet is that these Super Chargers get placed over at Owl's Nest. That spot definitely makes the most sense, right off 93, with a ton...

    Ah, big news this evening. Checked the app (followed by a text 2 min later) to schedule my delivery! I’m set to pick it up 5/23!

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    Yeah - sent a text this AM to no response so far... hopefully something soon.

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    Is it worth calling the location where I'm picking up - or is that just a pain for them?

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    What's been the usual flow once you get your VIN for those of you that have? I got mine Sunday and found out just by checking my app. No one has reached out and my SA didn't reply to my text asking if they could let me know where the car is. My EDD is 5/22 - 5/26, so was curious when they...

    Working with my HOA to get L2 charging installed... advice on how to make it as cost-efficient as possible?

    So I found the chargers separately($2,000 for two with a pedestal. The $20k he’s quoting me is JUST for install. I’m obviously going to get other quotes, but being the first one it was just total sticker shock and kind of scared me as I thought I had a good chance of getting my board to approve...

    Working with my HOA to get L2 charging installed... advice on how to make it as cost-efficient as possible?

    I don’t have a specific breakdown as of yet, but it’s for 2 L2 chargers run out of the main box. So a short run of wire (maybe 2-5 feet) that needs to be buried under grass, a new meter, and hardwiring into the two units on one pedestal. That doesn’t even include the hardware costs.

    Working with my HOA to get L2 charging installed... advice on how to make it as cost-efficient as possible?

    Well got my first quote back today.... $20,000 to install 2 L2 chargers... I'm pretty shocked. Hoping it's just a highball number.

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    I mean I wouldn't necessarily say it's for "clout" as you put it. I think a lot of people truly believe driving an EV is the responsible thing to do for the planet, and Tesla makes the best one. For a lot of people, some slight inconvenience is worth being an overall environmental steward. It's...

    Also forgot to post my VIN assigned yesterday was 248xxx

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    Woke up to a VIN assignment this AM! New EDD of 5/22-5/26! Only snag I’m running into is when I try and upload insurance the little Tesla wheel just keeps spinning and nothing will submit… anyone experience similar?

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    Ordered a day after. Had a few changes and a two week window last Friday… now been the grueling weight for a VIN.

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    So I got my two week window last Friday and was expecting a VIN this Friday, but looks like I still don’t have one just over a week out from the start of my EDD range.

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    This doesn't sound good for me 🤣

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    I'm just happy they did the refund though.

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    Anyone else have an SA who just doesn’t reply to texts? It’s been a couple of days and I can’t get a text back.

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    That's honestly not bad right now if you consider it's locked in for 30 days.... might have to do that
  35. N

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    Ah, I wish I saw this news about 20 minutes ago... If you (we) already applied for DCU it might be worth asking SA to switch to loan/tesla financing and see what rate is locked in there. I believe it's 30 days for Tesla with a rate lock.
  36. N

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    Ah I see, probably just backed up with all the others trying to get in last-minute approvals prior to the rate hikes... maybe we can expect an email in the next day or so.
  37. N

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    I'm confused... I applied from my DCU account and it said I was approved, but then never showed the rate or anything... what am I doing wrong?
  38. N

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    Yeah, I'm in the exact same boat... I think I'll just apply today and hope that my window doesn't change. Texted my SA this morning to see if they had any insight on when I might receive a VIN but they didn't get back to me yet.

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    If I have a 5/16 - 5/30 EDD when do you guys think I should expect to get a VIN?
  40. N

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    It didn’t take long for a new quote. I wouldn’t worry at all.

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    So I’m think about financing with either Tesla or DCU. Right now I have a two week window 5/16-5/30. The FEDs going to be raising rates again Wednesday so I’m wondering if I’m safe to apply for financing before I have my VIN? I know it expires after 30 days, so a little nervous if I do it not...
  42. N

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    Yeah, I know I can lock something in for 30 days, but I’ve read so many posts about EDDs being pushed back so figured it’s safer to wait until a VIN is assigned to do financing, trying to avoid too many hard pulls on credit.
  43. N

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    EDD always updates on a Friday for me. I woke up to a two week window this AM! EDD: 5/16 - 5/30 A little further out on the front end, but tightened up on the back end. Hoping to get a VIN soon and lock in financing before the FED has a chance to make things more expensive for me.

    Automatic payments accepted by Gen 3 Wall Connector?

    I was working on a revenue model for that reason… hopefully I can use it to convince them. Rumor has it there’s at least one EV nay-sayer on the Board.
  45. N

    Automatic payments accepted by Gen 3 Wall Connector?

    I like the Juicebox definitely. The upfront cost is kind of high, and then there's an annual service fee on top of that. If I can get the board to agree to something like that, I agree it could be the move.

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    May 12 - June 9 EDD… still no VIN. I’m guessing this means I’ve got no shot at May 12th delivery then.
