    Rear Seat Cover?

    How did that seat cover work out for you? I'm looking for one myself.

    Calling any Pittsburgh model 3 owners

    I could meet you at the supercharger in Cranberry on Sunday. Would that work?

    Calling any Pittsburgh model 3 owners

    If you haven't seen one by the weekend let me know. I'm north in Cranberry but might be able to help.

    Let's talk financing rates

    I did the same but I was able to get 1.99% with TechCU. That was a month ago, not sure if it's still available. Edit: looks like 2.49% now: Tesla Auto Financing - Tech CU

    2% Battery Degradation in 1 Month

    I've not noticed any meaningful change. I have around 2,100 miles on the car and charged to 90% yesterday and it reported 279 miles. If I recall when it was new it was always 279 / 280.

    Tesla 3...look but don't touch...well maybe look...

    The store in Wexford has had (customer) Model 3s the last few tones I’ve been there. When I picked mine up on Tuesday there were two others. Probably not worth an hour trip on a hunch but if you find yourself out here it might be worth driving through.

    Question about financing with 50% down payment

    I'm going to say that you did pretty well considering your circumstances!

    Delayed a WEEK due to SNOW

    I picked mine up on Tuesday right before we got 4 inches of snow. Kinda sucked but it gives me a reason to wash it this weekend I guess

    Question about financing with 50% down payment

    I think I saw someone say they got 2.25ish on 72 months but I'm not sure.

    Question about financing with 50% down payment

    I financed through TechCU at 48 months @ 1.99% with $35k down. Tesla offers for Model 3 financing seem to be higher than that. Tesla Auto Financing - Tech CU Tell them Tesla referred you and spend the $8 to join this thing to make you eligible for membership (unless you work a tech company)...

    What is my model 3 doing?

    Thanks for the update.

    What is my model 3 doing?

    Did you get a resolution to this issue? I think mine is doing the same thing and I'm wondering if it's worth a phone call or if I should just wait for an update.

    Nothing wrong with my fit & finish.

    Only thing wrong with mine at pickup was the fact that it started raining and then snowing so I only got to have it clean for a few minutes. Oh and they forgot to remove the film from my mirrors and screen.

    Dropping $973.36 for a new charge port tomorrow.

    T The last GM vehicle that I bought had a transmission crap out at 80k. I guess that's not typical but I don't think the charge port issue is widespread either?

    What is your primary reason for wanting to own a Model 3?

    I have a Leaf and I love it but don't love not being able to go more than 30 miles from home. Plus I commute to work and would love to have TACC and EAP in traffic (at least I think I will, I'll know when I pick it up on Tuesday)

    Sanity Check on Electricity Bill

    My average monthly usage is 1,100 kWh. House is 2k square feet. I charge a Leaf about 7kWh / work day. Electric dryer / dishwasher / heat pump + gas furnace. All of my lighting is LED. I have timers on fans and smart switches on most of my lights. Waiting for my dryer / AC / furnace /...

    Sanity Check on Electricity Bill

    Well the rate reduction should help quite a bit. I think your usage is on the high side but 4k square feet is a large space to heat / cool. I just bought a Sense meter to get an idea of my usage before having some solar panels installed later this year. It might be worth a look to get a handle...

    How long from finding your vin online to receiving the delivery call?

    I called them the next day. Getting the car 3.5 weeks after configuring.

    Comments I made onto Electrek that it never published

    I only got that far. :)

    Unique issue. Is later VIN better?

    My paperwork with an 81xx VIN says 2018

    Any Existing EV owner switch to Model3 or S/X ?

    I got $8k (US) on my 2013 Leaf traded in to Tesla. Carvana offered slightly more but with the tax difference I just traded it in.

    ISA Communications / Scheduled Deliveries

    The one shown on the Tesla account page. (888) 518-3752

    ISA Communications / Scheduled Deliveries

    If you have your VIN assigned give them a call and ask for a rough estimate of your delivery. I did that and they assigned an ISA.

    Weathertech mats now available for Model 3

    I emailed them a week or so ago and got this response: Hello, Thank you for contacting WeatherTech. We currently have the floor liners for the Tesla Model 3 in our design stage. We can set you up with a product alert and when they do become available you will be notified by email. If you...

    ISA Communications / Scheduled Deliveries

    My delivery date moved up almost 10 days once it was actually on the train. Then it moved back four days because of 'weather'. If I update my insurance effective date again I think my agent is going to kill me.
  28. emlombardo

    Might order my 3 soon, very begrudgingly.

    They offer a product at a price. You can choose to buy it or not, I don't see anything unethical in how this is being handled. It just seems like you're bitter that you have to choose between early delivery and the exact configuration that you prefer.
  29. emlombardo

    Might order my 3 soon, very begrudgingly.

    I didn't need the battery upgrade but bought it because I want the car sooner and understand that limiting configurations to the more expensive models makes perfect sense from a business perspective. It sounds like you think you're being forced to do something when you can clearly walk away...

    Delayed Delivery Model 3

    So far I've been told March 26th, March 16th, March 15th, and then March 19th. My insurance agent is going to murder me if I call her with another date. I'm not too upset, I expected to be waiting to June when they bumped estimates out to Mar - May but it sure would be nice to just have a...

    Transferring Model 3 Reservation Step by Step

    I’m not sure how many people here waiting for a Model 3 are going to want to help someone skip ahead in the line.

    Losing enthusiasm for Model 3

    I was considering a used Model S or a new Chevy Bolt but that went out the window the second I was able to configure. Now I'm just glad I didn't cave and buy something that I didn't really want just to avoid waiting.

    No recent VIN assignments?

    I got an updated purchase agreement once I finalized my trade details and passed along the financing info. That has the VIN plus the tax, etc..

    Powerwall & homeowner's insurance

    I'm adding solar panels (no Powerwall though) and it added $38/yr to my insurance. They said coverage is similar to my roof regarding storms, etc. I don't have the panels installed yet so I haven't seen the details on the policy.

    Wiki Model 3 delivery estimator

    Mine said March 31st for the longest time. I'm expected to take delivery on March 24th. I know it's just an anecdote but when I got my delivery date this was the first thing that I thought of.

    Just hit me about something utterly bizarre regarding Model 3 reservations.

    I know more about the Model 3 than any car that I've ever purchased despite not being able to sit in it before ordering it.

    What App are you using daily and are you concerned?

    Until Tesla has a legit third party API I’m not using anything but the official app.

    Just hit me about something utterly bizarre regarding Model 3 reservations.

    I wouldn’t have done this for any other car company but I ordered it before I ever even sat in one. It didn’t hurt that the early reviews were mostly positive.

    No recent VIN assignments?

    I got a call that my car should arrive in my area around March 24th (plus or minus a week). It's already manufactured and being loaded on to a train.

    No recent VIN assignments?

    That's great news. I'm submitting my Leaf info to Carvana right now.
  43. emlombardo

    No recent VIN assignments?

    That makes sense since the person who told me that was probably thinking of the S/X process. If the car is already on it's way here I'd better get my butt in gear selling my Leaf.

    No recent VIN assignments?

    I think we are all arguing the same exact side of this question.
  45. emlombardo

    No recent VIN assignments?

    I think I said the opposite. I assumed the VIN was assigned in my account when production of my car is scheduled. I was talking to the manager at my local Tesla store and he told me that once a VIN is assigned the specialist can see when production of the car will be completed and get a delivery...
  46. emlombardo

    No recent VIN assignments?

    I believe it means that production is scheduled.

    No recent VIN assignments?

    I assumed they want to build mine before west coast orders so that I can get it across the country before the end of the quarter.
  48. emlombardo

    No recent VIN assignments?

    Oh nice. I’m looking forward to a delivery date now
  49. emlombardo

    No recent VIN assignments?

    I checked around 5 and it wasn’t there. Checked at 8 and it was there.
