    I also feel like a lot of the features I personally wish the car had exist in the Model S 😂

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    I saw posts a while ago about Tesla v the competition, I wanted to chime in that I feel like the crazy cool things we used to see like power/range increases were insanely awesome when they used to happen. I feel like it’s been a while since they’ve done things in this nature and it’s become more...

    Crazy I scheduled service and they’re available tomorrow??! Hopefully I don’t get hit with in spec excuses tho😭

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    I tried to keep mine when I sold to Cargurus and told them is not free anymore but they didn’t really care so i gave me the one I got in 2020😂 we have three now

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    Thank you! To be honest doing a full inspection today and I can’t even see it anymore!!! 😂Maybe door just needed a good open and close to realign.

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    Soon!! I hope we all cruisin out of this thread😭 This was my third but shortest wait, the first was extremely long and second was also long

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    i appreciate that thank you! I just thought you know, the next one might be the same or worse since you never know what you’re getting from Tesla! Plus I’d get an expired loan with likely increases in interest rates/potential cancellation of my order with increased price/ and just an overall...

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    Yes I’m thinking it is noticeable so we will try to justify it being fixed that way, just unsure if it’s possible given that the trim and line are all straight. My bet is an issue with the door, praying it’s not an issue with the quarter panel given how hard it is to work with. Either way, it...

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    Not sure yet! I have to make the service request. We just are unsure if it’s an alignment issue or a warping of the metal. We couldn’t really open the door without accepting delivery unfortunately so I decided to just trust Tesla to make it right without hitting me with a “it’s within spec”...

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    Also took delivery today! My brother almost convinced me to reject delivery over one issue we had, there were some paint defects we will get fixed but the one thing we noticed was a slight misalignment/possible warp of either the right rear door or the right rear quarter panel. Very hard to...

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    Well they let me know they were only offering home delivery at the moment, my best guess is they hope they can drive off even if ur car is messed up bad😂 I haven’t signed any MVPA just yet either, could be any minute they show up. Also no Tesla insurance! They are a bit overpriced compared to...

    Don’t believe it slows it down, taking delivery today and haven’t paid yet.

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    Loan finalized early and funded!! Delivery today so a 40 day OD to delivery 🤓
  15. HarpoonS

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    I just realized the car I’m taking delivery of was built on the same day I sold my car😭 What a coincidence it was reborn 🙏🏾 I’m almost positive that this is a cancelled order though or someone changed their mind about color. No way I should have gotten one this soon.

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    Auto Loan Secured, Scheduled delivery for 7/28 12-4 home delivery. What an insane turn around.

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    6/16 OD, White Exterior/ White Interior No FSD. Original EDD: 7/31-9/4, 2nd 8/4-9/1 and 3rd 7/25-7/29. Just got off the phone with Tesla to confirm it’s legit, built 7/18 and just arrived here in SoCal today.

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    Also, I went from 8/4 to 9/1 to 7/25-7/29. I’m a bit confused but.. I’m pretty sure people were getting 318XXX a week ago. Seems odd that I got pushed up this fast.
  19. HarpoonS

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    YALL I just got matched to a VIN from being 8/4 to 9/1 to a 315XXX in SoCal White/Black. Is this a reject? Why was I matched so quickly?
  20. HarpoonS

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    Hey y’all quick question to anyone who sold to CarGurus, do you guys know how long an autoloan usually takes to get paid off by them? Going on day 6 from them taking it now.
  21. HarpoonS

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    Anyone in the West Coast who ordered around 6/16 see movement or get a VIN?
  22. HarpoonS

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    Alright, I switched my car to black and consulted my friends and family and some other threads here.. And I switched back to white 😭 I’m in love with the idea of black/black in its peak form, but otherwise knowing me I’m going to hate it 95% of the time when the swirls and water spots are in my...
  23. HarpoonS

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    Thanks for this! I am definitely reflecting, honestly the wait isn’t much of an issue for me I just wanna be sure I’ll prefer it over white. I know it definitely always caught my eye, my first two M3s were both white. This is the first time i’m considering black for sure.

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    I wonder now that Giga Texas is open how it has changed delivery timing. Do you guys know if it’s still East to West with West coast getting deliveries last in the quarter? I’m pretty sure my August 4-September 1 EDD is gonna move 3-7 days back at a time once August 4 comes around until it...

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    Thanks for this! I’m thinking of maybe applying outside of Tesla financing for a better rate.
  26. HarpoonS

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    So what is the current deal with Tesla financing? When I applied for a loan in November I had never seen Tesla arranging their own loans so I am a bit confused which route I should take. Does Tesla arranged financing default to Tesla themselves now? Or do they still work with other banks like...

    2022 Q2 production Model 3 missing matrix headlights?

    Im doubtful too that they would limit functionality of lights in the future to make sure people dont feel upset about the version of lights they got. But its understandable if someone thinks they might do that, for example im sure the 4680 Model Y "standard range" can probably do much better in...

    2022 Q2 production Model 3 missing matrix headlights?

    Oh I’m on your side here, I would be insanely mad if I didn’t get the matrix headlights they just look way too cool. I remember when I started seeing them around 6 months after I took delivery of my M3 pre-facelift and I was super jealous. It would be upsetting to buy a new one just to have the...

    2022 Q2 production Model 3 missing matrix headlights?

    Same with the computer chip/12V Battery, they don’t make it a key point on features for the M3/Y so if they don’t give it no one can say it’s what was promised

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    Most definitely, I think the only benefit to a new Model year is resale value since a significant change within the same model year could improve the value of a car even if it doesn’t include upgrades.
  31. HarpoonS

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    Oh I’m not really anticipating anything different for 2023 Models rn, not even ventilated seats. Good for resale value though 🤠 Even when I had taken a Q4 delivery I missed the Ryzen and Li-ion battery.
  32. HarpoonS

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    Does anyone else here feel like Q3 is the worst time to take delivery 😭 I feel like getting a 22 Model in September when a 23 Model would be produced in November lowkey sucks. I remember taking delivery of my 2020 M3 LR and just 1 month later it got entirely refreshed for the first time in 4...

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    Update: 7/31 - 9/4 is now 8/4-9/1 White/ Black
  34. HarpoonS

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    I’m not sure, it’s been that date since 6/16 😂 from my experience it always shifts to be like 9/4-9/30 whenever delivery comes about. so far my family has taken delivery of cars in Q1, Q3 and Q4. In 2020 my Q3 delivery was 9/5 but Q1 and Q4 were 21st-22nd of the month. Highly doubt I’ll see it...

    2022 Q2 production Model 3 missing matrix headlights?

    Fortunately haven’t seen any word of Performance Models getting the old headlights, this still hasn’t been reported right?
  36. HarpoonS

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    Hey everyone. Ordered 6/16 and still have an EDD of 7/31-9/4 here in SoCal. Pearl white/black seats.

    Model S Plaid hits OVER 200mph for first time EVER

    You gotta admit it’s awesome to see nonetheless 🙏🏾 At least we know even the 200 mph limit is understated and that the roadster will likely be a 265-270mph top speed vehicle
  38. HarpoonS

    When was the Month that 2022 model delivered in 2021?

    Took delivery 12/21, also didn’t get the new stuff. Felt very much like I got a 2021 branded as a 2022 😂
  39. HarpoonS

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    Interesting! I’m not sure why they even put my EDD towards Q4 when Q3 hasn’t even begun😂 Funny company, I’m sure if I fill everything out it’ll just come in September since that’s usually how they deliver in California, I’ve never gotten this many automated texts to fill things out though. I...

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    Hey everyone, I have an order placed for a M3P but was not ready to immediately take delivery, just wanted to lock in the price. I had asked if I could place it on hold but was told a VIN needs to be assigned before a hold can be placed, does this sound correct? I had an initial EDD of 7/31-9/4...
  41. HarpoonS

    Will this blacklist me?

    Hey thanks a lot for your reply! To be honest I think the chipset is a small point and you’re right on the market being tough in terms of interest rates and all. I think it’s just my worry about the longevity rather than the performance it’s showing at it’s current point. This is reassuring most...
  42. HarpoonS

    Will this blacklist me?

    That makes sense! I think one of the posts here mentioned a Turo rental business someone was running where they got banned for buying/reselling a lot of cars. I think you guys are right and that it’ll be fine. Thanks a lot
  43. HarpoonS

    Will this blacklist me?

    That’s really reassuring. I think I probably am just spooked by that terminology on their MVPA, but this helps a ton.
  44. HarpoonS

    Will this blacklist me?

    I hope not, it’s in the MVPA that they’ll cancel orders they believe are for the purpose of resale😭 I know i’m probably panicking for nothing but it still concerns me.
  45. HarpoonS

    Will this blacklist me?

    Hey! I’m not selling to anyone on the forums or hiding anything about my car to buyers so your scam comment is not justified. I was just wondering about Tesla’s resale clause since I’ve heard horror stories and never thought that it was something that could happen where they could cancel your...
  46. HarpoonS

    Will this blacklist me?

    I purchased a Model 3 LR in June 2020, took delivery in September 2020 and sold it in November 2021 with 14k miles since I wanted to upgrade to a performance Model 3. I took delivery of my Model 3 Performance in December 2021, but after a collision and some really strange issues I feel...

    2022 Model 3 Performance Issues

    Fortunately the project was finished in 16 days and all is working perfectly now but definitely a strange issue. Hopefully it’s all fixed for you

    2022 Model 3 Performance Issues

    Not a single collision, originally just thought the AC was no good or it was a sensor issue. Super unfortunate.

    2022 Model 3 Performance Issues

    2022 Model 3 Performance with 2500 miles, picked up in December had what I thought to be a simple issue with the air conditioning. Took it into serving for the AC not blowing cold and incorrect temperature readings, service first stated condenser fan went bad and needed to be replaced. Further...

    Model 3 Performance...Plaid [speculation]

    I honestly feel that a 4680 Model 3 will work more on weight saving and efficiency rather than give us a Ludicrous option, since they’ll be able to match the advertised 3.1 0-60 with less battery capacity and increase their profit significantly. Not confident we will see a Model S motor /...
