    Bold claim: Volvo Cars’ unsupervised autonomous driving feature Ride Pilot to debut in California

    That’s the only fault with it, handling sharper turns, but I think that’s often attributable to driving faster than the speed limit. On a long interstate road trip it’s very good.

    Bold claim: Volvo Cars’ unsupervised autonomous driving feature Ride Pilot to debut in California

    I have a 2020 XC60 with their “pilot assist” and will admit it’s very good on the highway with following, lane keeping, stop-start traffic, etc. Will be interesting to see how much of an improvement this is.

    Tesla dealerships getting ready for new MYs and M3s?

    When I went to pick up my M3P just before Christmas I noticed that they didn't have any demos in the lot or cars on the showroom floor, which I hadn't seen since I started visiting there in September.

    2021 Holiday Firmware Release - Predictions and Impressions (after release)

    Has anyone else had the update install and not get Sonic? I seem to have everything else but no Sonic in the arcade. ‘22 M3P.

    I feel like they know I have no willpower.

    I thought the acceleration boost on the M3LR was $2k, did it recently go up to $2,700?

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    It looks like between the front window and the cameras there is a smudge. They're going to send mobile service out to fix it, but it isn't serious and it's an easy fix.

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    I hate to hear that. My service experience center was very good and two people were very helpful and answered all my questions. There was one minor thing that the service center manager came out to look at and they’re going to have mobile come by to fix it next week (at my insistence, I wanted...

    Existing Inventory Decreased Range Banner

    They’ve continually had 4 or 5 demo vehicles available, and no less than 3 sitting on the showroom floor. Last time I was in they had a M3LR, a MYP, and MYLR sitting on the floor.

    Anecdotal, but I went in to my SC today and the building and front lot were empty. Only the delivery and employee lots had cars. Looks like they purged their demo inventory for the new year.

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    My service center reached out today and told me my car will be in at 5pm on the 22nd and asked if I may be able to pick up on the 23rd or 24th. I gave them a resounding yes!

    Same for mine that’s on the way here. Unlikely, though.

    I guess selling on site demo inventory is a little different from breaking the backs of employee to meet numbers. Does anyone know how to check their car’s battery age at delivery?

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    I paid $625 for installation, and it the cheapest rate I was quoted by a couple of hundred dollars. After watching them install it there were some things i didn’t have the equipment for (e.g. drilling through and mounting to thick brick) so I’m glad I had it done.

    Wall connector installed and ready for delivery [hopefully] next week.

    Delivery / Service Issues (panel gaps, delivery delays / issues / Service problems etc)

    Ha okay, thanks. I was familiar with that but thought there was something new I was missing.
  23. T

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    I got the Vision agreement the same time I got the VIN. To be clear on the order, I saw the VIN then the Vision agreement, VIN wasn't dependent on Vision. I was asked to schedule my delivery probably 3 or 4 days after that (about 15 minutes after I updated my financing)

    I'm not one to leave my ringer on for calls/texts but for the next week I think I have to 😭

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    The service center said that it’s on a train to Birmingham then that truck takes I-59 to I-75 straight up to Knoxville. Hope some continue on up to Ohio!

    Tesla Wall Connector - TERRIBLE SOFTWARE!

    I installed a wall connector today and it was very simple and the software worked well. I experienced the same thing mentioned earlier with the wifi on my phone switching back on my home network but it was easy to switch it back and refresh the wall connector's page to connect it to wifi...

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    Called my local service center today regarding the wall connector install and asked while I had them on the phone if they had any insight on where my car was. They said it was on the train to the east coast! Somewhere between Texas and Oklahoma, and they anticipate it'll be about a week before...

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    When I placed my order I got a text that said "welcome to Tesla" but since then I've only received two other texts (one was a test drive and the other was telling me it was time to schedule my delivery).

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    That's what I figured, that they put what they consider to be a safe buffer mileage for testing on there rather than physically (or digitally) surveying mileage and keeping up with it on a MVPA.

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    I was perusing my MVPA today and noticed that the odometer reading is listed and states that it has 15 miles on it. Does anyone else have a similar amount of mileage? I'm wondering if this just a boiler plate buffer mileage for production and testing of the car prior to shipping.

    Model 3 Performance Order Question

    Part 5 of the MVPA is purchase price credits, with subparts A through G subtracting from purchase price. Subpart B is "order fee payment" of $250. For me, subpart's B, D (finance), and G (cash) make up my payment for the car.

    Model 3 Performance Order Question

    It goes towards the purchase price and will be listed as a credit on the final motor vehicle purchase agreement.

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    That’s so strange. Same build in TN and I’ll take delivery a month and a week after I ordered on 11/20.

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    I called my local store this morning to modify the payment method from cash to cash + finance and less than 15 minutes after that call I got a request to schedule my delivery! I'm picking up on 12/27 at our local store, first appointment of the day.

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    Great looking car! I can't wait for my red M3P, love seeing others. In some other positive developments, as I await the car's arrival, I did receive my wall connector today and the electrician is coming this week to install it. I'm very impressed with the packaging and the quality of the...

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    My SA looked at my account when I was in the service center last week and said my M3P was sitting on the Fremont manufacturing floor as we spoke. I'm not sure if that was hyperbole or if they have more insight than I was aware of, but I had only gotten the VIN a day or two before.
  38. T

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    This is correct. If the 10th character is M it’s a 21 and if it’s N it’s a 22.
  39. T

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    Oh no, what a shame. Not that it's the way it should work, but if the SA can't help you and it keeps pushing you out have you thought about placing another order and seeing if that fixes it? Your order sounds like it's lost in a wormhole.

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    That's interesting. I have the same config and ordered three days after you but I have my VIN and an EDD of 12/25-12/29. Where I take delivery (Knoxville) is at the intersection of I-40 and I-75, and I see trucks full of Teslas all the time coming through, so maybe a truck coming through is why...

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    A week ago my EDD was Jan 27 - Feb 24 and this morning I received a VIN and an EDD of 12/25-12/29. Don't lose hope yet!

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    Just checked my app when I woke up and saw it with the revised EDD and Vision agreement.

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    Good morning to me! I woke up to a VIN and revised EDD of Dec 25-Dec 29. Accepted the vision agreement today too.

    M3P VS BMW I4 M50

    I'm late to find this thread but I had struggled with the same indecision. I pulled the trigger on my M3P not long after the i4 design studio was launched and I realized that I would be paying over $70k (before taxes and such) to get the car the way I wanted it. I figure I can revisit the i4...

    Locking in a price in anticipation of the Federal Tax Credit

    That's what I'm noticing too, for folks that have had long holds. As soon as they click I'm Ready they're getting VIN's within 24-48 hours.

    I sold my 2004 Lexus RX330 today for $500 more than I paid for it in 2014 ($7000). It had 164k miles on it and Tesla offered me $4200. I'm so happy to have sold it in this market; however, I have a backup truck for doing truck things so I'm not completely without like you. I'm not sure what I...

    Significant increase in trade in value of my current ICE from Tesla [Dec 2021]

    The market is insane right now. Tesla offered me $4200 for my 2004 Lexus RX330 with 164,000 miles on it and I just sold it on Facebook Marketplace in less than 24 hours for $500 more than I paid for it in 2014 ($7000).
