    Would you get this dent removed?

    Ah shoot thats disappointing to hear. Any ideas on what a fix would entail? Hopefully not a new hood as I would prefer not to go through insurance for this. In hindsight, I should've saved the dash cam so I can put in a claim with the other parties but I didn't think it was going to be this...

    Would you get this dent removed?

    Was driving down the highway and the landscaper in front who was hailing a utility trailer flung a rock the size of a small softball right at my car. Hit my hood, bounced, hit my hood again, and then hit my windshield. No damage on the windshield but the two chips on the hood went down to the...

    Model S LR White (blk interior) reservation at Pre-price hike in DC area

    I THINK it's possible as I saw alot of people doing it in the marketplace. When I tried searching for the exact method, couldn't really find it. I think the easiest method was dealing with someone locally as they have to take physical delivery for it.

    Maryland Excise Tax Rebate

    If I traded in a vehicle back on November 2019 and paid the tax only on the taxable portion (Vehicle Price - Trade In = Paid Tax), lets say $500 bucks. Do you think this situation would result in the flat refund of $3000 or would I only get $500 back as I had purchased it before the effective...

    Using Self Service Car Wash Wand

    What exactly is clearcoat protectant and carnauba wax at these self service car wash locations? Does it do any harm or is it "better than nothing." I seem to be getting differing answers on if I should do it. I never waxed my car before but these spray waxes seem as though its a easy apply so...

    Using Self Service Car Wash Wand

    Did countless research on how to properly wash a car. Bought a bunch of rag company microfibers, bought the ON solution, a couple of buckets, a dinky little sprayer for presoak, etc etc. Conclusion, I don't want to deal with this and I just want to go to a self service car wash. I don't have a...

    FS: 20" Silver Performance Wheels, Tires, TPMS, Center Caps

    Quite a bit cheaper! Should be about $175+paypal fees. Paypal fees are about $75 but I'm willing to go halves with you on that. All in, I can do $2550 boxed and shipped!

    Imgur Wheels look excellent! Plenty of tread as well. PRICE DROP TO $2300 LOCAL! If shipping, its +280. The buyer has to cover fees though.

    Best 19" Replica Wheels for P3D

    Not a big fan of tsport due to the logo as well as the price they charge for replicas. Can anyone recommend a good brand for the TSS Flow Forged design in silver? Not a fan of the gray and blacks.

    Touch up paint

    Had a quick question. The touch up paint lasts about a year. If you want to use the paint multiple times through the year, what do you do about the blending cloth? Are you supposed to wash it after every use? I assume if you don't and repeatedly use it on multiple sessions, wouldn't the dry...

    Advice Needed: Respray or Touch Up Paint?

    This is my biggest concern. Taking it to the body shop and the paint quality getting worse, paint not matching the shade, or the body shop messing up something even more. Whether that's dirtying the white seats , over spray, or scratching the other panels etc etc. It doesn't help that there are...

    Advice Needed: Respray or Touch Up Paint?

    Wanted to get your opinion guys, posted a week or so ago in regards to the poor condition of the delivered vehicle.

    New 3PD. Issues: Paint pits, paint drips, front hood gouges, door sill scratches, no frunk mat

    You hit it right on the head. Unfortunately due to the trade in (46k), if I go the refund route, not only will I not be able to reorder the same trim and lose the free interior upgrade comp. but I won’t be able to get a refund to cover the full cost of a new vehicle. I feel forced into the...

    New 3PD. Issues: Paint pits, paint drips, front hood gouges, door sill scratches, no frunk mat

    The earliest appointment is 9/30 but my return period is 9/27. Should I get something in writing or something? I don't want a situation where they seem as though they're going above and beyond to get this fixed and then right when I'm outside of the return period, they hit me with a "tough luck...

    New 3PD. Issues: Paint pits, paint drips, front hood gouges, door sill scratches, no frunk mat

    Leaning towards just keeping the car and getting it fixed. I'm tired of this whole song and dance. The refund will also be complicated as I'll only be refunded less than the actual sticker price as I was taxed on the difference after I traded my original AWD in (tax paid of $670 vs 3K+). I'm...

    New 3PD. Issues: Paint pits, paint drips, front hood gouges, door sill scratches, no frunk mat

    Distance wise about twenty minutes. Can't say on the quality of service though as I never had to bring it in. They answer well on the weekdays, not so much today. How soon after taking delivery did you have to do the repaint?

    New 3PD. Issues: Paint pits, paint drips, front hood gouges, door sill scratches, no frunk mat

    Unfortunately I'm single. I would be lying if I said I didn't think about that though. I've contemplated on using a family members name but don't want them involved in this whole situation. I was considering tweeting to Elon or something but I don't think he cares too much about a single sale...

    New 3PD. Issues: Paint pits, paint drips, front hood gouges, door sill scratches, no frunk mat

    Just got back from the service center and have some so/so news. 1. Hood would be completely replaced 2. Bumper would be completed replaced 3. He'll give me a new plastic door sill piece 4. Usually he doesn't do it but will also change out the center console 5. Will paint the rear panels (where...

    New 3PD. Issues: Paint pits, paint drips, front hood gouges, door sill scratches, no frunk mat

    Update! At the service center right now. they said the hood would be a replacement but the back bubbling paint would have to be done by the body shop and repainted. The paint chip on the front bumper would have to be a repaint as well. He didn’t specify on what he’ll do for the door sill...

    Really appreciate all the responses guys. Really helps calm my nerves. It seems as though even the senior members seem to be in agreement that this is an actual cause of concern. I plan on dropping by the service center tomorrow so see what can be done. I'm leaning for a swap but if they say...

    New 3PD. Issues: Paint pits, paint drips, front hood gouges, door sill scratches, no frunk mat

    The black console can't be fixed unfortunately. Imgur I mean things like the silver scratch on the door trim, I don't really care about that but someone scratching up the interior irritates me. I'm not sure whether they can replace that whole glossy piece. I know someone here will say "you can...

    New 3PD. Issues: Paint pits, paint drips, front hood gouges, door sill scratches, no frunk mat

    Eh the delivery person tried it. I pointed it out to him briefly and he said "it'll remove easy!" and tried his cleaning product. After him scrubbing back and forth I told him not to worry about it. I felt bad cause he seemed a bit embarrassed as he claimed it would be a easy fix. Plus as you...

    New 3PD. Issues: Paint pits, paint drips, front hood gouges, door sill scratches, no frunk mat

    But seriously, what do you guys think. Return or get it repaired? Both sides have its pros and cons. Return: New car could be worse or better Repair: No need for all this paperwork again. Con: They're going to have to repaint/touch up a brand new car and I'm concerned about uniformity issues.

    New 3PD. Issues: Paint pits, paint drips, front hood gouges, door sill scratches, no frunk mat

    My AWD also had the scratches on the sill but less severe. The passenger side is pristine as it was on my AWD. I'm starting to think its just a negligent tech./test driver who is just dragging his feet while getting in the car. I mean its impossible to get a flawless car, I understand that but...

    New 3PD. Issues: Paint pits, paint drips, front hood gouges, door sill scratches, no frunk mat

    Oh and my brakes sqeak. Its weird, leading up to delivery, I was stressing the freak out that I would get a beat up car. As luck has it, my worst fears came true. Regardless of if I rejected delivery or not, I'm just really bummed at this whole situation. I'm bummed that my AWD wasn't flawless...

    New 3PD. Issues: Paint pits, paint drips, front hood gouges, door sill scratches, no frunk mat

    I was going to go the MVA to do the official plate transfer but at this point I don't know. Would you guys return and rebuy or let them repair this? My issue is if I return, I don't think they let me re-buy the same trim.

    New 3PD. Issues: Paint pits, paint drips, front hood gouges, door sill scratches, no frunk mat

    The service center garage is pretty dark. It's not as though I was going to ask them to pull the car out to the front parking lot so I can look at at inch by inch. The door sill issue I was going to let go if that was the flaw. When I got home I noticed that the hood edge was catching the light...

    New 3PD. Issues: Paint pits, paint drips, front hood gouges, door sill scratches, no frunk mat

    When I see people complain about Tesla's build quality, I just tell myself its because people only use forums to complain. I always gave them the benefit of the doubt but that was before I took delivery of my P3D today. The MD service center is a bit dark so its hard to really see any flaws but...

    Anyone getting 2 Years Free Supercharging/Upgrades

    Definitive Answer: Best Baby Wipes for White Seats?

    Serious question (lol), what are the wipes that everybody is using to keep their white interior clean?

    Taptes Accessories FYI

I want to plug my USB directly into the USB slot with no hub/splitter. Drew a picture to make sense of what I'm asking. In other words, is...
