    Colorado waiting room - M3 Performance AWD or non-Perf AWD

    Mine was all cash too. I've seen few other references to 5 weeks. Although... not sure maybe there was some process change as far as paperwork you sign at the delivery? We were just a week apart though. 5 weeks: Colorado waiting room - M3 Performance AWD or non-Perf AWD

    Colorado waiting room - M3 Performance AWD or non-Perf AWD

    Seems you're overdue. I got mine after 5 weeks 9/22 delivery (and saw others get in about the same timeframe). Then waited another 3 weeks after registration for custom plates to show up in the mail. Group Special License Plates | Department of Revenue - Motor Vehicle Simple online donation...

    Things I learned from Tesla Service

    I drive Model 3 for 3 weeks now and has not yet found a single ergonomic issue. Service issues seem to be overblown. I had a single appt to fix a faulty charge port door, it was fixed. Totally enjoying my vehicle. Someone who lists two dozen defects is either very unlucky or looks for...

    Colorado waiting room - M3 Performance AWD or non-Perf AWD

    Yep, basically body shops they work with are overloaded with work for ~ 5 weeks out and for that reason they do not schedule appointments anymore. They want to catch up on the backlog first. I was told that Tesla will call me in about a month and tell me if I can schedule an appointment then.

    Rejected delivery this weekend

    This could very well be true... Even if U.S. demand lacks for a while until people learn about the car, the EU demand is still there and could be growing quickly with mandates for gas car reduction that their governments started imposing... Norway, Sweden, Denmark.. the list of countries with...

    Rejected delivery this weekend

    Under Driving / Acceleration, AWD has: Chill/Standard P has: Chill/Standard/Sport I believe this is the way to check the car has the right software. As far as hardware, it seems more and more instances come across that they update AWDs to Ps and not worry about the hardware... Maybe if...

    Software Update 2018.39.x (Version 9)

    My car was at the service yesterday, I asked them previously if they could update to V9 and they said no, if the car is not yet marked for update, there's nothing they can do. So, yesterday I got it back as V8, but today morning it already had V9! Just rode to work and was quite impressed with...

    $8,000 for a Charger in my Apartment Building: Request for better ideas...

    Breakers sound like a subpanel ~$1200, wire+conduit+receptacle...probably not very close... ~$1k...permit etc...sounds like you may be looking at $2-3k. if just for a few months until the lease expires, I would probably not do it.

    Colorado waiting room - M3 Performance AWD or non-Perf AWD

    That's what I thought too until DA made me think it's back by popular demand sounding very confident it was happening...False alarm I guess. Outside, if the back window is sprinkled. Used to show orange tint previously - until summer. I am now almost convinced I don't have the issue. The...

    Colorado waiting room - M3 Performance AWD or non-Perf AWD

    Curious about orange tint - when I took delivery on 9/22, a DA said last couple of days they were getting all cars with orange tint... mine is earlier build from August, so no orange tint :( How about yours? Have you sprinkled it yet?

    $8,000 for a Charger in my Apartment Building: Request for better ideas...

    Also note the AUTO buddy will "honour" primary whenever it needs to run and fall back to secondary when not in use. So this works with AUTO option in theory. You can confirm with Brad, he responds to email in 1-2 days. Oh, also another idea - I don't know if your range is hardwired or plugged...

    $8,000 for a Charger in my Apartment Building: Request for better ideas...

    If it's not hardwired, you can probably find a "buddy" to go with it or request Brad from bsaelectronics make a custom plug for you via email. Those things are custom anyway. But 30amps(24 continuous) will be a bit slower than electric range 50amps circuit (UMC v2 will limit to 32amps continuous)

    $8,000 for a Charger in my Apartment Building: Request for better ideas...

    Yes, the electrician would not do this, b/c permanently wiring in smth like this would not be up to code. That solution I mentioned is pre-packaged electrician-free solution, so an electrician would have no incentive to use it. If you find the outlet for your range, you can plug in the splitter...

    Colorado waiting room - M3 Performance AWD or non-Perf AWD

    At one point I replaced all incandescent bulbs in the house we bought with LEDs, about a year after we moved in. My wife at some point started having issues with her clicker (my car had homelink and did have range reduction issue, but not as severe). At first I thought the clicker broke, but it...

    Do you have electric range? BSA Electronics has splitters for both dryer circuits(14-30) and range circuits(14-50). Splitters of 3 types - 1. "dumb" Y splitter / base $160 option, you plug in into both outlets , your breaker trips in the best case... or worst - risk of fire. 2. Manual switch...

    Colorado waiting room - M3 Performance AWD or non-Perf AWD

    Mine was tough. Pointing clicker at the bumper did not work at all. Tried like 10 times. Opened hood and stuck the clicker inside, then it worked. Potentially, some LED bulb interference from inside the door opener motor casing. I was lazy to replace them. Finally went few days ago and got 2...

    Model 3: Turn Signals... ARGH!

    Count me in this camp! Left...right...left...right...screams from behind: "hey, which way you're going?" So, did you find you need stalk control module replaced or you got used to this? I'm still to do the scientific testing with counting the clicks and stalk positions...

    Colorado waiting room - M3 Performance AWD or non-Perf AWD

    That was not your DA, that was scheduling advisor from CA, their job is done with you ;) DA texted me 23 hours prior to delivery. It might be not fair to good DAs to dump on them the workload of non responsive ones, I mean with people sharing their info here...but I see why people are grasping...

    Colorado waiting room - M3 Performance AWD or non-Perf AWD

    I've been watching mine some more and don't believe it's specific to left signal. If you touch the signal lightly, it blinks few times and is off, which is fine. If you accidentally pressed it too hard when changing lanes and it clicks, then it's on and it's hard to turn it off sometimes - the...

    Delievery Lottery

    I wouldn't not say treated like crap, they probably didn't curse at you, did they? Just are disorganized, which we saw coming for a while with Elon tweeting about this being his top concern. I would not say this is ok or right, just that with us being caught in the middle of the ramp, being...

    Delievery Lottery

    Did they violate the Sept-Nov estimate given? Yes, you might have to wait a bit longer, but not that long. AWDs will be served to all line waiters before EOY. I would be ok with this if I didn't have my car delivered last week.

    If Tesla is getting killed on AWD what happens when.....

    Not true. Don't forget: Tesla Model 3 teardown shows over 30% profitability as Munro research firm 'eats crow' - Electrek And here's Elon's quote: Fred Lambert on Twitter

    If Tesla is getting killed on AWD what happens when.....

    I have not a slightest doubt that it will be here. Most people will pay more for options, but the base should be here as promised. Elon is not in this just for money, his goal is sustainable energy/future, which means mass market. And then off to Mars(not all of us ;) ). He's collecting more...

    Colorado waiting room - M3 Performance AWD or non-Perf AWD

    Still seems unreal, there are other closer states. They must have accumulated huge numbers in Lathrop and Burbank and finally found a way to clear these out by the Q end. This seems optimistic, hoping to see not more than 5K in transit in Q results.

    Colorado waiting room - M3 Performance AWD or non-Perf AWD

    Wow, can this be true? I mean, if they were only making 4k/week until recently and it seems CA gets like half of all deliveries, can they send 25% of cars made in a week to just Littleton? What about the rest of U.S.A.?

    Colorado waiting room - M3 Performance AWD or non-Perf AWD

    So, you're in my scenario. I got scheduling email from SA in CA, responded with a date, they updated my acct immediately, but only responded to email a day later. After this, I have not heard from anyone, got VIN and payment option 3 days prior to appt. Edit link was working whole time before...

    Colorado waiting room - M3 Performance AWD or non-Perf AWD

    Got my car on Sat. VIN 65K. Initially when I got the vin I was worried it's a bit low, but checked the spreadsheet and there were a number of people getting the same VIN for the config at the end of Sept. Seems it's an early August build, car door says 8/2018. Found a dealership registration...

    Colorado waiting room - M3 Performance AWD or non-Perf AWD

    Another data point for those hoping for advance notice from Tesla - Got a text today 23 hours prior to delivery, where my DA introduced herself and gave me her phone number in case I have any questions... Whew - and I thought I would never know her name!

    AWD delivery thread

    I got 9/6 email. No VIN until 9/19 for 9/22 delivery. I don't know who my DA is. Drove to SC today to verify my vehicle is there as delivery phone # was not picking up. Communication is bad. Notice is short. It's a normal for now until Elon fixes it.

    AWD delivery thread

    I've lived in KCMO and moved on to CO. 6/28 configuration, no previous ownership. Got 9/6 email email about delivery for last week of Sep. I would say the "unfairness" originates in the batches of configurations they make(colors/wheel size/interior color etc.) and in the queue length of SC for...

    Paying over the weekend - ACH on Sat/Sun?

    I went to CO SC today and asked them if it'd be ok to initiate my ACH on Sat after I see my car. They said fine, whatever makes me feel comfortable, but I can't be sure the same applies to CA.
  33. M

    Colorado waiting room - M3 Performance AWD or non-Perf AWD

    The way I see it, they either go there with you (and they may not have time for it until it's your delivery day) or they let everybody go on their own, in which case nobody will know if twenty people walking there are all legitimate buyers. And if they are not legitimate buyers, it may not take...
  34. M

    Colorado waiting room - M3 Performance AWD or non-Perf AWD

    Normally, you check out the cars inside the dealership. If you're ready to buy and looking for a specific configuration, then a salesperson would locate your car, get the key for it, and walk with you to that car and stand nearby while you're checking it out or taking to a test drive...

    Colorado waiting room - M3 Performance AWD or non-Perf AWD

    Seriously? back off? Until you paid, they don't know if you will. Maybe you'll reject the car b/c of some minor thing. Until you paid, it's theirs and they may need to protect it for the next customer. In fact, that overflow lot with un-detailed cars, I would prefer myself if nobody walked...
  36. M

    Colorado waiting room - M3 Performance AWD or non-Perf AWD

    Well, I felt like it wasn't worth the conflict - maybe some of them would see me walking around and say smth like "sir, we asked you not to go to that lot". Its in their possession, not mine right now. They said its in some overflow lot with cars that are not ready yet. Maybe they challenge all...

    Colorado waiting room - M3 Performance AWD or non-Perf AWD

    Well, I had to drive there as nobody picks up the phone...They told me the system shows that my car is on their lot, but would not let me see it as it hasn't been washed(detailed). I asked if that'd be ok to initiate ACH after I see the car on Sat (considering banks might be closed) and they...

    Colorado waiting room - M3 Performance AWD or non-Perf AWD

    9 days out is no reason to worry. I got my VIN and edit url stopped working yesterday for this Sat. delivery. I never heard anything from DSA and don't know who it is. Just tried to call Littleton to ask if they really have the car and few other things and they are not picking up at the delivery...

    Did Tesla just try to sell me an old build?

    And deliveries back in Jan were at a crawl with people who stood in lines secretly hoping they'd be chosen over everybody else and get one of these earliest vehicles... And meanwhile the vehicle was sitting in the lot somewhere... What the hell?

    Did Tesla just try to sell me an old build?

    Hey, if it's really 1K VIN, I think you are guaranteed to have alcantara interior in that; there's only a handful of these and some people would kill for it. Also, you'll be getting orange tint rear window matching nicely with the glass on top. There's a lot of nostalgia for that old window...

    Few Q's on installation options

    I'm not sure why we're arguing about this; I feel like you think that I have a bias about HPWCs and trying to prove me wrong by questioning my statements. There was no bias in what I said, it was true. First, I said: You modified my words into Prior to that, you dismissed what I was...
  43. M

    Few Q's on installation options

    To be fair, I keep forgetting - UMC v2 will reduce 40amps to 32amps, while HPWC can give you full 40. However, after splitting into 20+30, two of UMC v2s will give you the 8amps back;)

    Few Q's on installation options

    Well, I guess you did not see my first post in the thread. The first estimate I got was about $2.5k for adding 14-50 and about $4.5k for adding 100amp line for HPWC(s). Part of the cost is that I needed panel re-worked and new subpanel, which immediately adds ~$1,200 in our area. Then I needed...

    Few Q's on installation options

    I understand words "proper" and "compliant". However, for some of us that translates into thousands of extra dollars not counting HPWC costs. So, if we're looking at pros and cons: Pros: 1) 14-50 and/or buddies are cheaper than HPWCs(for some people like me it's a lot cheaper). 2) Buddies may...

    Few Q's on installation options

    Yeah, this is actually a stock item, don't even need to ask for anything extra. It's 14-50 --> 14-50 + 10-30 and you can have 6-20 add-on with above URL and have it wired to the 14-50 end.

    Few Q's on installation options

    That's not true, I think a lot of people are considering such a split, those who are getting a 2nd and 3rd EV (not my case). I thought that's what @drawfour was asking about. The issue at hand is that they may have their panel at capacity, not just physically, but in terms of load and they may...
  48. M

    Few Q's on installation options

    So, if the resistor in the adaptor used on UMC is basically what downgrades the amps pulled from the circuit, then it seems your other wiring don't matter even if it supports 40 amps on each end of the splitter as long as you have the right female adaptors to plug in into. So, theoretically...
  49. M

    Few Q's on installation options

    You know what I just thought, there may be another safe option of sharing the 14-50 that for some reason I did not see anybody suggest... Basically, if you use the adapters on the end of the Y splitter that make Tesla think it can pull only 20amps from that adapter, then maybe you can have your...

    Few Q's on installation options

    I'm not in any way related or trying to protect that site... seems he started this in 2014 and AUTO version only came out a year ago per info on the site...one guy shop and probably has enough on his hands, so the site could have some improvements. We give a lot of slack to Elon and seems Brad...
