    Model Y Hitch Receiver: Rise Limit Question

    Love the Altos! They're just so dang hard to get a hold of down here in southern California, and when they pop up for sale on one of the related FB groups, they tend to sell same day! I spoke with the service manager at the local Tesla service center about the rise issue. It was his take that...

    Model Y Hitch Receiver: Rise Limit Question

    Why did you replace the factory hitch? To get the 3.5" rise? I wonder what the max rise folks have done with the factory hitch is. I'm tempted to rent a Basecamp or a Jayco and give it a shot with an adjustable height hitch.

    Chill vs Sport in a 3P+

    Totally agree that the Sport pedal map on the M3P sucks and would love to find a way to make the first third a little more like the MS Standard mode, then ramp to full power from there. That sensitivity in the first bit is really awkward and clumsy. My car is in service right now, I'll ask the...

    Model Y Hitch Receiver: Rise Limit Question

    Coupler is 19"*, so still need a 4" rise. What's the max rise you've used successfully and safely with your Y?

    Model Y Hitch Receiver: Rise Limit Question

    None of the tow trailers available on Outdoorsy for rent near me seem to be compatible with the Y. Closest was a 2020 Jayco Flight SLX 174BH Baja Edition, UVW 2945 But the coupler height is around 22". With our 15" receiver we'd need a 7" rise. So it's out. It seems like the receiver...

    Model Y LR AWD Towing Uhaul 6'x12' Cargo Trailer

    Thanks everyone for the helpful replies. This was a very educational experience. First challenge: the rise needed to tow this trailer exceeded the Tesla spec of max 0.75" rise. The 2" ball hitch U-Haul sold us had a rise of 1". Even with this much rise, the trailer still wasnt fully level...

    Model Y LR AWD Towing Uhaul 6'x12' Cargo Trailer

    Hello Fellows, Has anyone else had success with towing a UHaul cargo trailer with MY? I am thinking of renting their largest, the 6' x 12': U-Haul Equipment specifications: 6' x 12' Cargo Trailer for a x-country move from WA to CA. We are taking delivery on Saturday, the MY will come with the...

    October 2021 Order Delivery Dates

    Just kidding! Mine is now September - November. That will be a full year since order. WTF are they doing over there?

    No Safety Score

    Great suggestion, thank you. I'll double check this. Does this include the new invasive cabin camera data collection?

    October 2021 Order Delivery Dates

    Just checked and my window pulled up from August/September to: Estimated Delivery: July 18 - August 29 I guess it's something. If it arrives in August it will have been 9 months since order. Meanwhile I want to change the color from grey to blue but there's no way in hell I'm going to...

    No Safety Score

    Same issue as the rest of you - i've opted in and had a Safety Score section in my tesla mobile app since last fall, but it's never computed a score: I've emailed them in the past and they were like *shrug*. I just emailed them again, that email address if anyone else would like to ask for...

    October 2021 Order Delivery Dates

    This has been ridiculous. We also ordered a Y last November. Our EDD settled on March 2022. Then we moved, and called to update our address, and it went to TBD. After calling various delivery centers two more times, it's now showing.....AUGUST/SEPTEMBER. That's almost a full year. Not ok!

    Anyone else can't get Safety Score to show up in the app?

    This is so flaky. I finally had the Safety Score option show up in the Tesla app. After two drives, it was still blank with no score. Force quitting and restarting the app didn't change it. I signed out and back into the app, and now safety score is gone entirely from the app! Tesla...

    Beta FSD software rollout

    So others are getting it, super annoying. I have the software mode set to "Advanced", I assume that's the right setting for this. @animorph, were you able to enable it?

    When to retire?

    There's a big difference between current expenses in the accumulation phase living in a HCOL location, what I plan to spend after FIRE in a LCOL, and what I'll end up spending. My question is not how much am I spending right now while living somewhere expensive and working, my question is: for...

    When to retire?

    Hoping to retire early here as well, maybe even this year! I'm curious, how much USD do you early retirees spend each month, and does that include rent/mortgage or do you have a paid off home? I am currently projecting a 3k / month net spend from a gross 46k / year investment income. Very tight...

    Anyone else dislike the new UI?

    Ya'll are lucky you can even get an updated. I switched to "Advanced" about a month ago and haven't been offered an update. Not at all surprised to hear about the UI regressions. Tesla may have the best electrical engineers but damn do their software engineers suck!

    New 2021 M3 still on 2020.35.202.1

    Tesla is the only company I'm aware of that doesn't publish when their updates are released and give users an option to update as soon as they are ready. Also, if you get a glitchy "Advanced" update and want to roll back to "Standard", that should be available as soon as you select it, but...

    Tesla Insurance Claim Check Bounced

    Chiming in to share my equally terrible experience with Crawford. My original insurance adjustor went dark on me and despite me pinging them every week, I did not get a reply to my emails for TWO MONTHS. I called and a woman informed me I would get a call back, never happened. I called again and...

    New HOV Stickers

    Definitely not feeling like ruining my 2020 M3P's awesome looks with hideous orange stickers everywhere. It's ridiculous. My plan is to carry these and the permit in the glove box until if/when I get pulled over (I have 30% window tint so maybe never), then say hey I just got these I was going...

    Sheltering in Place - Charge or not

    Thanks for the extra info. I have never charged my battery past 80%. Should I crank it up to 100% before a discharge to 50% just to trigger this? I wish the manual spoke about this. The tech did advise that the predicted range would adjust itself over the first few hundred miles, maybe this is why.

    Sheltering in Place - Charge or not

    Where is everyone getting the 50% charge info for storage? Talking to the techs at the nearby Tesla service center, they're all saying just leave it plugged it and charge to 90% (for regular usage). I can't find any guidance for long-term storage, where is this coming from? Also, where can...

    Paint Protection Film - Worth It?

    When decided whether to get PPF on the Model 3 or not, it would be super useful to understand the cost of repairing rock chips and scratches instead. The nearest TSLA service center told me a brand new Model 3 bumper in my color (white) is $1k, installed. If repainting rock chimp damage was...

    New M3P Mechanical Issues

    I agree with you. After a lot of driving and pontificating (and test driving a LR), I just returned the P. Too many issues and too expensive to fix when I can just exchange. It was a super fun car on smooth roads and road trips, but just the wrong car for my daily life. My awesome delivery...

    Is there definitely a difference between the LR AWD suspension and the Performance suspension? I'm reading conflicting reports online.

    3PLRD owners selling white interior?

    Did you ever figure this out? I know this is a super old thread, but I'm looking to trade my white interior seats for black seats Would Anyone Like to Swap Black Seats for White in LA?
  31. Magneto3

    New M3P Mechanical Issues

    I hesitate to invest even more cash into a top of the line M3P in the form of wheels/tires and seats. But I'm considering it. How much would it cost to swap the white interior seats for a set of black seats? Or get the seats reupholstered black?
  32. Magneto3

    New M3P Mechanical Issues

    Thanks for the suggestions! I'm hesitant to change the suspension on the M3P, I'd sooner just return and get a LR AWD. I'm also unhappy with the interior white with a white exterior....rather than spend even more money on the top of the line M3P, I'd sooner just downgrade to a LR AWD that is...

    Would Anyone Like to Swap Black Seats for White in LA?

    I just took delivery of a new 2020 M3P, White / White, on the 27th. I don't like the way the white interior looks with the white exterior. I talked to Tesla Torrance service, and they said they could easily swap a set of front and back black seats for my white seats for 1-2 hours labor. Does...

    I had really positive experiences at both Service and Delivery. Whew, finally!

We also went for...

    New M3P Mechanical Issues

    Yes I want a Tesla. I'd be returning and looking for an inventory m3 lr awd. Do you commute in yours? These LA roads are pretty nasty.
  36. Magneto3

    New M3P Mechanical Issues

    Related question - can you downgrade to the 19" rims? Or do the performance calipers prevent this? Iooked up 19" tires/wheels for commuting and they're specifically not compatible with the Performance.
  37. Magneto3

    New M3P Mechanical Issues

    Great find. That does sound similar to what I'm experiencing. On its own it would be less alarming, but combined with the unusually harsh ride it is more concerning. I pinged that thread to see if anyone ever tracked it down.

    Random Thunk While Driving

    Did you ever get to the bottom of this? I've had this happen five times in 300 miles with a brand new 2020 M3P, accompanied by unusually harsh ride quality. Do we know what this might be?
  39. Magneto3

    New M3P Mechanical Issues

    I really appreciate the support and encouragement here. Thanks all! If anyone has a M3P in the south bay area of LA lmk, I'd love to compare ride quality. Drinks or a meal on me! I'm currently at the Torrance service center. They're being cool and looking at it for me. Will update soon.

    Does anyone have the direct contact information of an Order Advisor, Sales Advisor, Service Advisor, customer support agent, anybody that they would mind sharing with me? In the meantime I'm driving over to service to see if I can at least get a diagnosis what the issue is. Pending the results...

    Latest update: just tried calling: two local service centers, my delivery center, a sales advisor, and asking for a call via customer service. Literally nobody picked up the phone, all just phone trees that hung up on me. Customer service chat bot/person said she'd 'get someone to call me'...

    New M3P Mechanical Issues

    So I'm looking at new inventory cars and it doesn't seem any M3 LR AWDs have FSD, which is a deal breaker for me. So I'd be looking at 2-3 more months for a new car to be built. They took my trade-in and there's no way to get that back, apparently, so I have to rent a car for several months...

    New M3P Mechanical Issues

    Thanks, I appreciate it. Even if I was able to get service to fix it on Monday, I wouldn't trust this particular vehicle to last 120k+ miles, it just feels like a lemon. I'm very suspicious of brand new cars (30 miles) with major mechanical issues. A car should be at it's best when it's...

    New M3P Mechanical Issues

    Sure, I could try this. I fundamentally object to having to beg for them to fix their broken 66k luxury car. It's pretty sad that mobile service booking is broken on both iOS and Android. Tesla seems to have perfected an end to end, vertically integrated bad user experience.

    It came at 42 psi. The ride was so harsh I let out 2 lbs to see if it would help. It didn't.

    New M3P Mechanical Issues

    I tried twice to book a service appointment. All nearby centers are booked out past the return date AND every time I try to request service the app throws an error instead? Not impressed. I can't risk waiting past the return deadline for service.
