    Model 3 rear bumper cover used, some scratches

    I have a used Model 3 rear black bumper cover with some scratches. There are no cracks or missing pieces. It was removed by Tesla service for a warranty claim. If interested I can provide detailed pictures. Local pickup only in the twin cities, MN.

    What does live traffic visualization look like?

    Thank you, I will try that on my drive home. I don't envy your LA drive Minneapolis is pretty tame unless it snows.

    What does live traffic visualization look like?

    I recently subscribed to premium connectivity but I'm not seeing anything different in my navigation that may resemble "live traffic visualization". I have all the other features like music streaming and web browsing but my navigation is unchanged. I was expecting something like red lines for...

    Great news! I bet the service appointment wait times will drop in Eden Prairie now :)

    Rear ended another vehicle, not blaming Tesla but wondering why AEB did not activate?

    In my experience I have seen both the red car warning and actual vehicle applying the brakes but under different circumstances, I also never drive on AP. The only time I have experienced the vehicle actually apply the brakes is when the vehicle in front of me decelerates and I accelerate with...

    Rodent damage: my washer fluid reservoir was leaking. It was chewed through by something.

    "Garage Cat" is an elegant solution however it's incompatible with our our current "House Dog" hardware.

    Rodent damage: my washer fluid reservoir was leaking. It was chewed through by something.

    I've found it's almost impossible to prevent a rodent from getting into a vehicle, there are just way too many openings for them to squeeze through. One thing that works for me are adding dryer sheets into the engine compartment, cabin and trunk. Under the hood I zip tie them to any metal...

    An error, a diagnosis, and a new rear motor in 7 days in MN

    I have nothing but praise for the Eden Prairie, MN SC. So far had the rear bumper cover replaced (hit and run in a parking garage). They had a cover on hand and it was done in a couple of hours MS as a loaner and they even removed 2 car seats to get the old bumper cover in the car at my request...

    Bay area body shop recommendations? Got rear ended.

    I had similar damage from a rear end and had the rear bumper cover replaced at my non-body shop Tesla SC. The cost was $1060 and took about an hour, your labor rate may vary a bit. They had a rack of pre-painted bumper covers ready to install.

    Mrs caused paint damage to rear bumper

    I did the same thing not my wife. Depending on your insurance deductible a new pre-painted bumper cover replacement at a Tesla service center runs about $1060. You could claim it on your insurance and pay the deductible no guessing on paint match it will be a new cover.

    rear-ended by someone elses rear-end

    Going through it now just got my quote from SC, unfortunately the insurance repair estimate only came in $30 over the replacement so I'm out my deductible (hit and run in parking ramp). Your labor rate may very I'm in MN and this SC keeps a rack of spare covers in various colors so no waiting...

    Help! My wife is stealing my 3P+

    How long does it take to fix a transmission fluid leak? My wife has been driving my 3 for a week and a half. When I ask her how much longer before her Trailblazer is done she just shakes her head and says "it's a bad, very bad, they're flying in a specialist from Detroit. Maybe next week" Should...

    Will insurance replace instead of repair the rear bumper cover?

    Update: Tesla certified shop quote for bumper cover repair came in at $1,028 and Tesla SC bumper cover replacement came in at $1,061. For $33 I'm having the bumper cover replaced by Tesla.

    Reduced range, sluggish performance, SR Downgrade? What is going on?

    I know this will sound weird and I may be going crazy but something strange is happened to my SR. I had let my wife drive my 3 for about a week while her ICE was in the shop again. When I got it back I noticed that my estimated range was about a third less than what it was the last time I drove...

    Rear Seat Heaters Confirmed

    That is precisely why I have covered my current pleather seats entirely in tin foil. Also the steering wheel, in case of FSD version 10+.

    Will insurance replace instead of repair the rear bumper cover?

    Normally on any other car I wouldn't have an issue with this but is the 3rd party estimator Tesla "certified"? Will they include sensor diagnostics (pre and post) like the Tesla shop? I guess I just have to wait and see what they come back with.

    Will insurance replace instead of repair the rear bumper cover?

    Update: Friday I got an estimate from a certified Tesla body shop for $1,100 and submitted it to my insurance co. They said since this body shop is not part of "their network" I had to submit pictures of the damage to a "third party estimator" for another quote.

    Here is the left repeater view, contact occurs at 0:16 mark, vehicle is a red/orange Ford Edge, chrome rims and stickers in bottom corners of rear window.

    Will insurance replace instead of repair the rear bumper cover?

    This is mine (sorry bad picture) but the scratches at the feature line are through the paint and into the plastic

    Will insurance replace instead of repair the rear bumper cover?

    The scratches are right over two of the sensors, so will use the excessive filler/paint interfering with sensors if I get push back form ins co. I'm still holding out for a replacement, fingers crossed that the certified shop comes back with a replace quote rather than repair.

    This is why Sentry Mode rocks

    Sort of, I was parked in a city ramp in an end spot when another driver over steered on a corner and hit my rear bumper and kept going. My alarm went off and I got the app alert. I checked the Sentry Mode video and saw the car that hit me but because of poor lighting and video resolution I...

    Will insurance replace instead of repair the rear bumper cover?

    Ouch, that's quite a bit more damage than mine. With a tear and that much distortion I can't imagine a body shop would try to repair the cover in your case. How long did you have to wait for parts?

    Will insurance replace instead of repair the rear bumper cover?

    The Minneapolis Tesla SC has a rack of pre-painted bumper covers, one in each color. Their estimate is under 2 hours to replace assuming no other damage.

    Wow, good to know, I feel better and better about my chances of getting that replacement.

    Will insurance replace instead of repair the rear bumper cover?

    That's interesting, that would certainly solve my problem. My estimate is scheduled for Friday, I'll report back when I get it. Thanks.

    Will insurance replace instead of repair the rear bumper cover?

    I took delivery on 4/30/19, I'll try my adjuster once I get the actual repair quote, thanks.

    Will insurance replace instead of repair the rear bumper cover?

    I plan on keeping the car for a while and I'd rather get a new cover, rather than fixing it. I won't take a ding on insurance since my car was parked when it happened, confirmed with my insurance co.

    Will insurance replace instead of repair the rear bumper cover?

    Someone hit my M3 in the parking garage and scratched the rear bumper cover through the paint into the plastic (the cover is in one piece with no cracks or missing pieces). Sentry mode caught the accident but the resolution was too low to pull a plate number so I'm going through my insurance...

    New LR AWD has 50 miles stated on MVPA, have not picked it up yet

    43 miles on my SR+ at delivery to my house. Also I've only ever looked at the app for my odometer reading, couldn't tell you where to look for it in the car (darn techno-wizardry)

    The auto wipers are............working!

    There, that's better, now I can stop complaining about the rain and the kids stepping on my lawn.

    The auto wipers are............working!

    I'm not sure this is related but my auto wipers worked pretty well until the 2019.4.2 update. Now the last two rainy day drives it's the opposite very slow response during medium to heavy rain and no response at all to light drizzle or "jet wash" from the car in front of me.
