    0-60 numbers beat LR by a lot? Are we still talking about the SR MY vs LR MY because those numbers are 5.0 vs 4.8 respectively.

    FWIW, my SA sent me an email a day after I placed my order and said I’d need to complete any remaining tasks(aka complete my profile) to be put in queue officially. I thought it was weird that Tesla doesn’t communicate this with their customer clearly/publicly since many (most) people order...

    I'm scheduled for a Tesla service appointment to fix a couple of minor issues like headlight, door handle adjustment. I was initially NOT going to worry about having them fix it since it was not just one or two but as i noticed a few more minor issues, i'm now inclined to have them fix them. My...

    Not into the Tesla cult but the idea of protecting the car from damages was appealing especially with the design of the car and paint quality. However i wasn't in no way going to pay thousands to get ppf installed. So i did it my self. Wasn't easy but i took my time and installed the pre cut ppf...

    I paid about $500 for the frontal ppf kit from Drive protected (I got a 20% off code from a YouTuber, dm me if you want it) and the headlights/fog lights, rocker panels and trunk lip were bought from Abstract ocean and TesBros for about $130 total. You also probably need to buy some car...

    I bought the precut ppf from drive protected shop (you can look them up). They’ve been selling ppf for a while and have good reputation. The prep work is very crucial so don’t skip to putting on the ppf. There are tons of videos on YouTube on the prep as well as putting on the ppf it self. After...

    I just drove my car officially this weekend, 3 weeks after taking delivery because I was working on putting frontal ppf, ceramic coat and blacking out the Gemini wheels. It took me days to finish each(specially ppf) and I was mostly working on it a couple of days a week. The prep work takes more...

    I only have like 80 miles on it. Only drove it once since taking delivery. Been waiting until I get the time to install ppf and ceramic coat it which I just completed (almost) yesterday. So she’s ready for the world now. Don’t feel bad about the miles, that’s what the car is made for after all...

    Speaking of features and work around, has anyone been able to play any custom light shows? I know this was a thing a few months ago but I am not able to play any custom light shows in my car. It’s possible Tesla shut it down but just checking if other’s are able to do it…. It’s my daughter’s...

    If you are talking about the alien like sound the car makes when you go in reverse, it is not an issue, it’s actually there by design. Not sure if you can turn it off in the settings. I also believe there’s a work around for music through the usb. Look it up on YouTube. Edit: #1 is called...

    Yep, took delivery 2 weeks ago and noticed it while detailing my car last week. I thought Tesla resolved this issue on white cars so I didn’t pay attention to it on delivery inspection. I know from a YouTuber who had this issue, Tesla wasn’t able to get it completely resolved because the bumper...

    I’m in the Washington DC area, it took exactly 2 weeks from VIN to delivery. Not sure when my car actually left the factory but the process seems like the car ships in a day or two via trucks then trains to a hub (New Jersey in my case) then on trucks again to the delivery center. Your DC will...

    They shouldn’t have any of your money (other than the $250 order fee) until you show up to pick up the car unless you chose to pay online or send check in advance. You can let them know you’ll be bringing a check(certified check or check from your financing institution). That way they won’t have...

    If you decide to remove FSD, don’t do it right after getting a VIN. Wait until the car arrived at your DC, pickup scheduled and all paperwork is completed… then call the main Tesla customer service number and ask them to remove it. I just think it’ll be easier for them to still sell the car to...

    If you reply yes, they will open your account, quickly go in and put in the trade in info, they can give you a quote in as little as 2 hours(that was the case for me a month before VIN) or as long as 2 or 3 days(also the case for me when I did it the first time). After you see the quote, reject...

    So it looks like what they give you a free year long subscription to their service manuals/catalogue which is kind of a website with tons of service info and from what I can tell it can’t be downloaded as a pdf. I just subscribed and the total showed $0. You may be able to do a lot of...

    You don’t have to do anything if you pick up at the delivery center or take home delivery. They process all the paper work for you. I think RocY is doing carrier direct so the paper has to go back via mail.

    Thanks. You’re right. It’s a protective white film/cover. I never saw any car deliveries with a protective film on the door handles but all the cars at my delivery center had it yesterday. I’m keeping it on for now 😃 Here’s a close up.

    At long last, she’s home! Meet snowball. Car is nearly perfect except for a few smudges on the white seats and a potentially misaligned left headlight. It really is a minor issue, pointed it out to the advisors and they made a note of it and scheduled an appointment for me in case I wanna...

    Thanks. I saw that but didn’t like how it looked. The one Antonius posted looks good but you could be right about melting in the heat. I guess I’ll go back to my back up plan and use a small white towel to keep it seamless and minimal.

    So SA says car has arrived and going through inspection, should be good to go on Thursday “given no issues arise”. Confidence level is at about 30% right now. Can’t even get my self to request the afternoon off from work for pick up.

    I'm surprised they actually tell you where the vehicle is.

    Yep, normal, they put the update date as order date on the order agreement. Your order is still prioritized based on your original order date. I have no explanation for why your EDD moved, its just how Tesla does it. Is your profile complete? No open trade in or expired financing...?

    I don't think your SA is right. Pricing will be exactly what it was when you ordered so removing 7 seater will be 3k less the total price.
