    Change to the Zero-G wheels then back again? Or force close the app and re-open it?

    Tesla Software updates - Australia

    M3P on 2022.28.2 was prompted at 1PM UTC+11 to get 2022.36.5. Installing now.

    Headlights defaulting to auto high beam

    Also very curious to know if it’s still happening on 2022.36.2. Waiting for the update to appear on my car and I’ll report back.

    Tesla Software updates - Australia

    Yep, it’s frustrating that it is only checking once per day. I get the feeling the update is now available to all, but since I checked early in the morning I may be stuck until tomorrow.

    Best Tesla M3P performance tyres

    Has anybody grabbed the new Michelin Pilot Sport 5 tyre? I am planning on getting a new set to replace the stock P-Zeros (for obvious reasons). Looking at 245/35ZR20 to go on the 20" Uberturbines. Safe choice?

    Headlights defaulting to auto high beam

    Tesla Service asked me to attempt a full factory reset of the MCU. Settings > Service > Factory Reset. With cloud profiles, it should just be a reset, sign in, reconfigure phone keys. I don’t want to try that unless it definitely fixes the issue. Is someone else willing to?

    2022.28.1 — Official Release Notes and Discussion

    For those unsure what we mean by this. Take a look at the fact that the auto high beam icon is already enabled well before I’ve even entered the car. https://share.icloud.com/photos/0662-5Mm3wSMaqUwT9rs6koYA It’s equivalent to pressing the left stalk forward. I have to do that to turn them off...

    Headlights defaulting to auto high beam

    Just to definitively highlight the bug for others who aren’t experiencing it. https://share.icloud.com/photos/0cbs_WMmLByaRhb1Z-5MnkPQg Notice how it has “auto high beams” selected, even before the gear selector panel is displayed? This means that when the headlights automatically turn on at...

    2022.28.1 — Official Release Notes and Discussion

    So I got this update a few days ago and now when I get in the car, auto high beams are already selected. This is not just while using autopilot (due to tesla vision), this is ALL THE TIME. Anybody else have this feature/bug? I’m hoping when .2 comes out it’ll go back to normal…

    Headlights defaulting to auto high beam

    This is also happening to me. Same scenario, it’s always selected when I get in the car. I came to the forums looking to see if it was just me. 2021 Model 3 Perf. on 2022.28.1

    Rattle in front of driver - Need advice!

    Thank you! To clarify, they were able to fix that one but not the one in the dash.

    Rattle in front of driver - Need advice!

    Tesla have had my car the last few days to fix a rattle in the parcel shelf and one in the dash, directly in front of the steering wheel on a right-hand drive Model 3. They claim to have insulated the dash, but after getting it back the rattle is immediately even more noticeable. I would like...

    Tesla Software updates - Australia

    Sept. 2021 M3P got 2022.24.6 yesterday. Immediately took it for a 10 minute drive down a highway to try vision-based AP and came back disappointed. It phantom braked twice. Once when it was driving past a metal barrier, and another when it was completely free on all 3 lanes. In the past there...

    Thanks. What about Sentry Mode Live Camera (view the cameras remotely from the app)

    Tesla Software updates - Australia

    Are you able to confirm if the Blind Spot Cameras and Light Show features are available in Australian firmware? Internally both are expected to be toggle-able using feature flags.

    Seems “Advanced” channel strikes again. No updates available. EDIT: Just noticed that both of you have the FSD package whereas I do not.

    Should Level 2 charger be unplugged during an AC power outage?

    Thank you for posting this. 🤜🏻 I’ve just come home to no power, but want the car to charge as soon as power is restored in the middle of the night!

    Tesla Software updates - Australia

    lol no thanks, return to sender, pls no. On a serious note, over what periods are updates rolled out? My ‘21 M3P is still 2021.36.5.5 with “advanced” toggled.

    Ideal or Cost Effective Home Charging

    My house has a single-phase 63A feed-in (check the size of the main RCD to work it out). I'll be doing a new 16A single phase circuit to the Tesla-branded permanent wall charger. More than enough output - 25km/h recharged...

    When buying your first Tesla, what would you do differently?

    I would have if I showed them sooner, but I’ve been waiting a total of 3 months now due to COVID making it harder to get a SC appointment early on so at this point I’m happy to wrap it as-is. My view on the wrap is to keep it easy to clean, keep it protected from door dings, and keep it shiny...

    When buying your first Tesla, what would you do differently?

    I can attest to this too. My 2021 Multi-Coat Red Model 3 Performance was just given to Liquid R here in Melbourne for PPF but before leaving they spent a few minutes looking it over in their shop lights and then walked me around the car to point out the 20+ defects they found in the paint. This...

    Stone chip repair Melbourne

    I had a few chips repaired by Tesla - I noticed them while taking delivery of the car. I’d highly recommend B&A Motor Body Repairs. They are an approved Tesla body shop and spent a long time with me on the phone explaining the process and how long it will be before I can PPF the vehicle...

    Paint Repair Outgassing Period?

    Nope, full sand back and respray of the affected area. They said that they do approximately a 31mm diameter circle around the chip in order to make sure it blends. They did a good job. You absolutely cannot tell it was repaired. Only problem is.. is outgassing a concern?

    Paint Repair Outgassing Period?

    I have an M3P which came from the dealership with some chips and defects in the paint, so I had them fix it up with a respray of the affected areas. The paint shop suggested that I need to wait 4-6 weeks for the new paint to cure before wrapping the car in PPF. Does this sound accurate? All...

    Sentry Mode Triggering every minutes

    My M3P has been acting up with Sentry too. Came across this via reddit. Even with “exclude home” ticked, my sentry stays on and triggers to nothing often.

    How to protect fresh paint for 30 days?

    Similar boat to you. My brand new car is with Tesla at the moment getting a few chips fixed - all chips that I noticed during delivery, including one at the front of the rear wheel well which I think I incurred while driving it to get repaired! - before my PPF appointment booked for...

    Victoria Service Center Closed - Waiting List?

    Hey all, Just wanted to find out if anyone else is waiting for an appointment at the Richmond SC? I've got some paint and alignment issues that I noticed upon pickup 3 weeks ago but they keep delaying my SC appointment due to it not being a 'safety-related issue' what with the current...

    Tesla Melbourne Repair Quality (Paint)

    Yeah I’m actually trying to get these fixed so that I can deliver it to a detailer to do paint correction and full body PPF. I’m really hoping to keep the car looking amazing but sadly it’s going to cost me 2 months of waiting to do so..

    Tesla Melbourne Repair Quality (Paint)

    Just found another odd paint patch on the boot lid. Looks like some kind of bad buffing but it doesn’t rub out. Hopefully they’ll take this on too? When sending messages to log all these issues I feel like I’m bothering the service team… which probably isn’t what you want to be feeling with a...

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

    Completely agree. I knew going into this that "Tesla quality ha ha what a meme etc etc" but to find 2 paint chips and a mis-aligned bumper it very sh*t on a $100,000 AUD car. We didn't even think to check the Audi when collecting that but this one was a mission to just make sure we were...

    Not getting any software updates??

    Mine ('21 M3P) received its first update within minutes of connecting to my home wifi once I had driven it home from the collection centre. From memory, it was the following update: From: 2020.x.y To: 2021.24.x

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

    Great tip, but just went out to the garage and tried it with no success. Hopefully they can do that on my behalf otherwise they can replace the bumper.

    @play150 do you find you get door trim rattles with your config? I definitely am.

    M3 Audio Upgrades- Show us what you did

    Do any of you get door trim rattle when you have your bass cranked with these setups? Obviously with no engine noise, trim rattle is my concern with upgrading the stock stuff.

    Tesla Melbourne Repair Quality (Paint)

    Thank you mate. Tesla told me they'll likely take the car and send it to "One of their approved body shops" on my behalf while I drive around in a loaner. I can only hope that it is as you describe!

    Tesla Melbourne Repair Quality (Paint)

    Hey all! I am wondering if someone is able to calm my nerves here. I have recently taken delivery of a multi-coat red Model 3 Performance. The drive home was amazing. Hooray. Now that I've got it home in garage lighting I have noticed a few things (bumper alignment and paint chips) that the...

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

    Also happened to find a paint chip the same evening. Booked in for service centre appointment but with the state of the Pandemic here in Melbourne, Australia I won’t be able to get in until it lifts - end of September. the saga continues…

    Should I chase delivery date?

    To provide closure, I got a call this morning and picked it up this afternoon! Super simple delivery but I did find that the bumper alignment is sub-par so booked into for a service appointment on Friday morning. the saga continues

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

    Just took delivery of my car a few hours ago. I'm wondering now if I am being too picky or if this is worth lodging a service request for. The bumper does not sit flush with the front quarter panel on both sides. Has anyone had this? The two Model 3's on either side of mine did not have this...

    Should I chase delivery date?

    Thank you so much @Hong Konger it helps a lot! I was told today that my pickup (which has been confirmed twice) is now no longer confirmed or going ahead because it was contingent on the truck arriving today which it didn’t. How did they lose a truck full of the worlds smartest and most...

    Should I chase delivery date?

    Thanks @Bluey for the offer, however no need as I also have pick up on Wednesday 🤞🏻 I actually would like to see how Tesla are mounting what they call their standard plates, which are actually black/white slimline. My plates are the same but I am concerned they may be drilling two holes right...

    Should I chase delivery date?

    So great to hear @Gayle S please enjoy your new gogomobile! Can I please ask a favour - can someone who has received their car very recently please take a photo of the front and rear number plates to show clearly how they are attached to the mounting bracket? (Feel free to DM these to me as you...

    New text message. Delivery date pushed back by 1 day so picking up 1st September now. 🤞

    Mulgrave VIC delivery centre

    Thanks for clarifying. Sorry for the questions but does that mean they drilled through the center of the plates to attach them? I ask because I want to put custom plates on after taking delivery

    Mulgrave VIC delivery centre

    @Hong Konger it doesn't look like that front plate comes with a number plate cover. Did you provide custom plates / opt to exclude it? How is that plate connected to the car?

    Should I chase delivery date?

    Should I chase delivery date?

    Seems that everyone is getting their text messages but mine has sat there. Called yesterday and they said the last known location is NSW. Not a great feeling.

    Tesla Store Melbourne - Shipping delays?

    I have a whole CAR being delayed with no clear reason why other than “lockdowns”. At least in my case I’ve been able to surmise that the border restrictions is making it hard to get trucks to/from Sydney. Maybe you’ve got a similar problem with your order?

    Should I chase delivery date?

    Amazing! Was that the earliest time available??
