    Performance Boost Available

    A buddy of mine has a MS with Ludicrous Plus, and now launch control. Took it out for a spin last night, and holy smokes is that insane! If Tesla ever allows a Ludicrous-like mode for it’s ‘lowly’ Models 3 and Y Performance, I’m jumping on it. You turn the mode on, press both brake and...

    Model Y Firmware Poll

    Mine installed last night while we were out to dinner

    Model Y Firmware Poll

    Mine's still at 36.11 and says it is 'up to date'

    Built-in navigation is weird/unreliable

    Possible, but it was two different areas, both of which right off the 5 freeway in Socal - you'd think well-traveled and therefore well-documented/recorded

    Built-in navigation is weird/unreliable

    I've used the navigation through iPhone handoff/share, which basically just enters the address for you into the Tesla navigation, and I noticed that it's pretty unreliable. Two separate familiar routes took me in crazy roundabout directions, made no sense, and it wasn't traffic/closure related...

    the Performance MY is quick AF so I'd LOVE a performance upgrade! I'm first in, when offered

    I'm DEFINITELY gonna keep it - I think it's hilarious

    Deep Blue Metallic Model Y Picture Thread

    Finally snapped a few quick pics after getting it PROPERLY detailed (had to get the ridiculous swirls out from when I picked it up - my detailer thought it wasn't new, it was so badly swirled). Such a gorgeous color, it's amazing.

    I may have the best/funniest production flaw ever

    How about this? Messed with the settings, exposure, shadows, etc

    I may have the best/funniest production flaw ever

    Darn it! Was really hoping to launch that career starting at 49! Here you go

    Come to think of it.... #ghost Hope it's Demi Moore, though!

    I may have the best/funniest production flaw ever

    I finally got my car properly detailed, as the 'detail' Tesla did was full of swirls - looked like a 3-year old car full of bad wash damage. Looks amazing now, however, now that the surface is nice and clear, I found this gem of a flaw. It's a handprint in the paint! It's the paint, as I did...

    Service Center opening in Lake Forest

    Oh great. My mobile appointment was just changed to this location, so with no loaners, I guess I"ll need to move to a different place? Which ones DO have the loaners?

    Wonder when it will be available for the Performance model :)

    Issues with Model Y wireless phone charger

    So the signal is pretty weak also? All my cheap Chinese Amazon desktop chargers work fine with all 3 cards in the back...

    Issues with Model Y wireless phone charger

    I have a Distilunion case that has a 'wallet' on the back. Normally I've had two cards in there (ID and one credit card) but now I have to carry an extra Tesla key as well, so I have three cards. My phone still charges on all my desktop chargers, but not on the Tesla charger, perhaps because...

    Stat apps and services

    Anyone else have the issue that when you do a Siri command via the watch, you have to do an extra step by clicking 'Do' (or 'Cancel') on the watch? I can't figure it out
  20. thefrenches

    Stats app question re automation

    Does anyone else get a required extra step on the watch that requires you to press 'Do' on it? I can't figure it out.

    Delivery Popped Tonight

    I was offered $200 off for my MY Performance as it was already 'in stock' - with a discount like that, TAKE IT

    California waiting room Q3

    Picked up my Performance MY DBM and it is freakin' fantastic. Didn't drive a Performance model 3 or Y, and holy crap is it insanely fast. I enjoy the sportier feel overall as well, as I used to be a Porsche Owners Club driving instructor (track/club racing). Only tiny little issues, rear...

    I seriously will, right now (we're texting the final details)

    California waiting room Q3

    I got suckered into taking a new (not reject) Performance model, same color. That's what I originally wanted, but my wife convinced me otherwise. Desperation drove me to take the Performance, so I'm picking it up tonight!!!

    California waiting room Q3

    Not according to Tesla. He said it will likely be re-assigned according to the queue, for some reason. Said it was 'complicated' lol. We'll see if it stays on my account, but he said it wouldn't.
  29. thefrenches

    California waiting room Q3

    No surprise, but the vehicle didn't get on the truck, so I'm not picking up tonight. Have to check back in next Monday, I guess. Oh well
  30. thefrenches

    California waiting room Q3

    BTW, I was told that once they do inventory the first week of October, there MAY be more deliveries scheduled. I might be right there with you the way these deliveries seem to go, with changed dates/times/cancellations
  31. thefrenches

    California waiting room Q3

    Ugh, sorry, man - I talked to my guy at 8:45 this am and he found the vehicle while browsing inventory of what was not yet assigned, it's a 49 VIN so it's not a reject. Keep on him if you can
  32. thefrenches

    California waiting room Q3

    I've been the squeaky wheel enough with my 'Customer Experience Manager' (who is at the delivery center) and he found a vehicle just like mine but WITH tow hitch (which I didn't order/need). Rather than wait until December (which seems like the next available timeframe for those of us who...
  33. thefrenches

    California waiting room Q3

    I'm in the same boat as cabbqking - I don't see anywhere in my account an estimated delivery time frame, only this: "We will reach out to you to schedule your delivery date. Delivery time frame is based on order date, profile submission, delivery location and vehicle configuration."

    Rejected MY

    Welcome to internet forums...it's everywhere
  35. thefrenches

    VIN 49xxx — great delivery but here are my issues

    Wouldn't a felt pad on the section of the plastic that hits the B pillar do the trick?
  36. thefrenches

    California waiting room Q3

    And several of us don't even have a timeframe
  37. thefrenches

    Model Y or Used X?

    The Y is big for what it is, but I don't see it working ever for a family of 6 - go with X
  38. thefrenches

    California waiting room Q3

    I keep asking my SA about the status, after seeing so many who ordered well after I did, and I have no info on potential dates, no VIN, etc. Now I'm concerned I'll be waiting until December, which sucks, as now I'll have to rent a car if I wait that long

    Seriously? Insurance went UP with EAP?

    California waiting room Q3

    I haven't done paperwork other than the initial agreement and credit check (which they approved in 2 minutes, was nuts)
  41. thefrenches

    California waiting room Q3

    I ordered deep blue metallic (I guess that would be DBM), and I'm leasing as well (better for the writeoffs with my business) so maybe THAT'S the issue - they take the cash deals first :)
  42. thefrenches

    California waiting room Q3

    Amazing. I ordered on 9/6, no VIN, you ordered on the 23rd (if you meant 'last Wednesday' that's the 23rd not 3rd) and get a VIN immediately!
  43. thefrenches

    California waiting room Q3

    I was given the choice of Costa Mesa and one other, and I took Costa Mesa because it was closer - was I supposed to do a different one to get it more quickly?
  44. thefrenches

    California waiting room Q3

    I haven't received ANY texts other than the confirmation of order on 9/7
  45. thefrenches

    California waiting room Q3

    It's frustrating to see the variance with which orders are filled. I ordered/confirmed on 9/6, no text, no updates. Others who ordered after me already have their vehicles. No rhyme or reason

    Red Model Y with Black or White Interior? Opinions?

    White interior looks amazing, however, drive both options. The softer material makes the seat feel to 'squishy', less supportive, but what convinced me NOT to get it was the white bar of trim on the dash, which was the equivalent of an LED light bar shining JUST below your line of sight...

    I'd think it only serves to hurt range, if you are slamming the accelerator more :) Has a range improvement been done on Teslas via software upgrade before?
