    Are the Cybertruck's looks growing on you?

    I still just can’t. I have stared at that thing for hours, watched the videos, really really tried. I’m just a simple guy and don’t like to attract attention. There is no way I would ever get comfortable in that thing. Put a deposit in on a Lightning so my F-150/Model 3 stable will stay...

    External speaker retrofit to enable boombox on 2018 car?

    My kids and I had some fun driving around the other night blasting Christmas music, but I have to agree this isn’t probably something I will use often. I think it will be fun for tailgating and similar activities when you are parked and want to listen to music but the horn thing is useless. If...

    Free Premium Connectivity is back?

    I appear to have gotten it. Got my car March of this year in WA state.

    FYI: Jeda teaming with Munro and Associates on their Y USB hub

    They stated the item was sent to FedEx on the 9th despite the fact it was the 15th and no update occurred on the tracking. Something about FedEx not scanning the packages when they arrive. That is bologna. No shipping company is going to let packages sit around unscanned. Too much liability...

    FYI: Jeda teaming with Munro and Associates on their Y USB hub

    After emailing them again on July 2, I finally got an email back on July 7 stating the item would be shipping that day or the next. On July 9 I got a tracking number from fedex but no item was ever shipped. As of today the tracking number expired. I emailed them today and told them to cancel...

    FYI: Jeda teaming with Munro and Associates on their Y USB hub

    I ordered on 5/22. Got the email about the “upgrade” with a shipping date on or before 6/19. Still nothing as of today so I emailed again. If I don’t have a tracking number by next week that charge is getting disputed. I tried doing the “right thing” by supporting the original after a bad...

    What did you name your Tesla?

    I split the difference like my middle-of-the-road LRAWD and decided on Moderate Gravitas.

    2020.12.5

    Just be sure to ask to speak to the manager because everyone knows that the only way to get things done.

    COVID-19 Social Distancing Trip

    I told my wife that she needs to take one of the other cars to work since she's on mostly hospital shifts going forward until this is done. She's changing in the garage, etc, but the car is a hot-zone as far as I'm concerned. That did not go over well, so basically I'm losing the 3 until this...

    Anyone reconsidering their order after seeing how Elon is reacting to COVID-19?

    Saw the title. Came here to say a thing. All the things have been said. Good job team.

    COVID-19 Vegetarian and other off-topic stuff

    One I got in my email today. I took molecular bio about 100 years ago but this all sounds pretty legit. Information from Johns Hopkins about the Molecular Stability of the Virus From Johns Hopkins Hospital: The virus is not a living organism, but a protein molecule (RNA) covered by a...

    COVID-19 Social Distancing Trip

    Drove to the regional airport here to watch planes from the car yesterday. Unfortunately/fortunately nobody was out flying. Lots of people sitting in their cars at the waterfront here.

    How Soon Until VIN Appears in the Online Store

    OP did you end up buying and scheduling the install? I just can't bring myself to do this given how much crap has to come apart for the install. I'm just using my phone to open and close for now.

    Anyone considering delaying their purchase due to Market Downturn related to Corona virus?

    I found a few blemishes in the paint* on my 712*** delivery from last week. I’m not going to sweat it. Too much fun to drive. If you get a dud, you have 7 days to return. It sounds like you’re not doing a trade and you don’t need a car so you’re in the perfect position. *To be fair I think the...

    Wireless charging pad question

    I’m thinking of doing the Jeda Pad with a 12v usb plug so it can fast charge and to keep the usb free for the flash drive and game control. On the FAQ it says it won’t fast charge iPhones, but it also says it does QC 3.0 charging, which the iPhone X and later do. I’m thinking the FAQ is just...

    SR/SR+ (Model 3 RWD) Waiting Room

    I ended up talking with the SA to get the car switched to one they were showing as inventory. Really happy I did. Ended up switching to black interior and 19"s but the car looks great and is a really high VIN. I decided that black seats are better anyway for a family with 3 large black dogs...

    Anyone considering delaying their purchase due to Market Downturn related to Corona virus?

    Got mine yesterday. It is indeed a lovely distraction from our all-day-every-day COVID day jobs.

    Poll: Would you return your model 3 over this panel issue?

    I was so anxious about the paint and body panels going into my delivery appointment today. It’s fine. It’s not perfect, it’s fine. Honestly if I hadn’t known about the issues with panel fir and paint I would not have noticed any issues. Only because I was looking extra close did I find...

    LR AWD Waiting Room

    No. Ended up with a Blue/Black/19, which my wife says she likes better. She was going along with the white intern because she thought I wanted it and vice versa. I think the black interior will work better for a family with lots of black dogs anyway. I don’t love the 19”s, but she does and...

    LR AWD Waiting Room

    It finally happened. I don’t want to go in the house.

    LR AWD Waiting Room

    Didn’t end up picking up the car yesterday. Just too late in the day to get up there in time. They’re working on getting us set up for a Tuesday delivery. I have to reapply for financing and my trade must be reappraised since it’s been over a month and a half now. We will see what Tuesday brings.

    LR AWD Waiting Room

    Emailed SA about changing to an inventory car. Got off the phone a few minutes ago. They are looking at the possibility of getting it prepped and ready for us this afternoon.

    LR AWD Waiting Room

    Sitting here this morning trying to decide if I want to call the SA to see about getting an inventory car or just take the delay as a sign and put the breaks on this whole thing for a bit. Money is ready. Jobs are stable. Just anxious in general.

    SR/SR+ (Model 3 RWD) Waiting Room

    I’m going through Bellevue. It’s been radio silence for a month now. Ordered 2/8.

    Get off the internet and go drive! :-)

    LR AWD Waiting Room

    Some hope is rising based on the chatter over in the SR+ room. Now I’m just a little nervous about the build quality of an end-of-quarter, pre-shutdown build.
  27. AlanSqB

    LR AWD Waiting Room

    I guess my 2/8 order is not getting fulfilled this quarter. We must have just picked the totally wrong combo. Now the factory is closing down. SA is completely AWOL. I will try to see this as a good thing. Probably shouldn’t be spending the money on it right now anyway. Just a bummer.
  28. AlanSqB

    LR AWD Waiting Room

    They’re activating the VIN on the account. You then use the app to get in.

    Performance Waiting Room

    I call BS. That was the reality a few weeks ago. Now, there is going to be plenty of inventory.

    LR AWD Waiting Room

    Did it explain how to sign the paperwork? I wonder if that’s going to become the norm since so many Tesla stores in malls are closing for a bit.
  31. AlanSqB

    SR/SR+ (Model 3 RWD) Waiting Room

    Remember all, inventory does not mean the car is ready at the store. Many inventory vehicles are in transit or even in production.

    New Model 3

    Tell you? No, they are now just texting you to tell you where in the parking lot you can find your steering wheel. No contact delivery and all.

    LR AWD Waiting Room

    If anyone is wondering which configuration is done absolutely last, it’s blue/white/aero. That’s the one.
  34. AlanSqB

    LR AWD Waiting Room

    Many of the cars showing in inventory on the website aren't actually at the stores. They're "in transit" there. They put them on the website for that location sometimes days before they ever arrive.

    SR/SR+ (Model 3 RWD) Waiting Room

    BC, Canada. Most members have their location listed int their profile. You can see it by clicking on their screen name. He also has BC plates :-)

    LR AWD Waiting Room

    If you build it... Just finished installing the Wall connector. I’m not impressed with the build quality, but it looks nice once it’s buttoned up. Now, just need the car.

    LR AWD Waiting Room

    Tesla insurance is only in California so far.
  38. AlanSqB

    LR AWD Waiting Room

    I’m starting to think that’s what’s going on at this point. My store is pretty close to the epicenter of the whole thing here in WA so I think they’re dealing with it. A little communication would go a long way though.

    LR AWD Waiting Room

    My finger has been hovering over the cancel button for a couple of days now. I had a day 1 res I cancelled due to quality concerns and I’ve waited this long before jumping back in. My current justification, besides the pandemic, is that I might really want a model Y anyway. My wife prefers the...

    LR AWD Waiting Room

    No. Likely many current orders being cancelled right now. You got lucky on one already headed your way that matches.
  41. AlanSqB

    LR AWD Waiting Room

    It won’t be. There are going to be tons of cancellations now. I bet you’ll have your car much sooner.
  42. AlanSqB

    LR AWD Waiting Room

    I am nearing the end of my patience. I’m about 60% towards canceling the order at this point but my wife keeps taking me out of it. I’m trying to keep positive. Anyone else out there from an early-mid Q1 order still waiting? I’m starting to think it’s just me and the March orders around here...

    SR/SR+ (Model 3 RWD) Waiting Room

    I think mine must have missed that bus. :-(

    SR/SR+ (Model 3 RWD) Waiting Room

    No. Those were headed for Seattle!

    LR AWD Waiting Room

    What ever have I done to anger the gods of assigning and delivery? Is it my impudence in ordering the luxurious white seats? Is it the failure to be neither frugal with the SR nor “Go-Big” with the Performance? I’m fully prepared to offer one of my ICE vehicles as a sacrifice. Just send me a...

    Performance Waiting Room

    Thanks for the info. I’m hoping all that will kick into motion as soon as I get a VIN. I’m getting ready to pay my second payment since my valuation also.
  47. AlanSqB

    Performance Waiting Room

    Did that happen without any intervention on your part? That would be a nice surprise. I got a lower rate from BofA than Tesla but I'd be totally fine if Tesla got me an even lower one.
  48. AlanSqB

    LR AWD Waiting Room

    I think if they called me and told me I could get a Blue/White performance right away or continue to wait for the LR I would probably take the bait. This wait is getting painful now that almost everyone else is getting called up.
