    Standard Range Model 3 Now Available for $35,000

    I feel bad for the sales people but who needs them when the prices are fixed. And knowing that hundreds of thousands of people were willing to put down a deposit even before the car was revealed kind of tells that people are comfortable bypassing the dealer altogether.

    Early Adopter vs. Current (2/28/19) Price Compared

    I am like another price drop! But after comparing my Pearl White RWD Long Range Premium to the new price, I am okay with it, especially after almost a year of joy owning a Model 3. Being an early adopter has its prices but not so bad after considering the tax credit. Here is a quick comparo...

    What the wife said

    Haha, good for you. Hopefully they can produce RHD vehicles soon.

    What the wife said

    I see regular cruise control with + and - buttons (or can use the right scroll wheel). I didn't see any function for adaptive cruise.

    What the wife said

    I think you need to say that it only cost $xx extra per month and it's like 70% cheaper then getting a Porsche Turbo for same power, so money well spent. She made me clean up bird poops yesterday!

    What do you dislike most about your Model 3?

    My old E46 M3 is still going strong. It's just so much fun. re: Model 3 - I think the mats are really cheap material. It feels like they belong in a Mitsubishi. Good thing all-weather mats are coming on my way and cover them up.

    What the wife said

    Little background: My wife and I never owned a Tesla or drove one before. I, like hundreds of thousands of people around the world, put down a deposit without seeing the unveil on 3/31/16 (I was around #12 inline in Paramus). Then I watched the unveil and the car looked much better than I...

    1Q 2018 Shareholder Update Highlights

    This sounds to me like typical Elon talk and I read it like it is still being developed (for further capacity expansion) and it is not yet here and ready to be installed.

    1Q 2018 Shareholder Update Highlights

    Some interesting details from my read: 2,270/week Model 3 production before April pause. 9,766 produced, 8,180 Model 3 delivered in Q1. (Total of 29,997 deliveries for S3X) Model 3 is already on the cusp of becoming the best-selling mid-sized premium sedan in the US (compares to BMW 3 series...

    What is your alternative to spending $1500+ on the Wall Connector and a dedicated 240v line?

    I bought a new HPWC off of eBay with 20% coupon = $420. I called around and got quotes of $2,200 - $2,350 from 3 different electricians for about 95ft wiring installation. Too much! I bought 100ft of 4 guage romex wire, circuit breaker, etc. for about $500 from an electrical supply store. I...

    Ways to surprise wife with Model 3

    Looks like your wife and my wife will have the same cars very soon. Bring the Model 3 to a mall or a nice restaurant with a valet parking, uber home and then later you go on a date to the mall/restaurant. Once you guys are finished, let the valet bring the Model 3 (that's if you trust the valet).

    Gas prices going up and up and up, my Model 3 cannot come soon enough!

    Old M3 for me, new Model 3 for the wife.

    Gas prices going up and up and up, my Model 3 cannot come soon enough!

    I am noticing long lines of cars (I don't understand people waiting like 10 minutes just to put gas that's like 10c/g cheaper) at these two cheaper gas stations around my area. I haven't seen that in couple of years. This means gas prices are getting up there. EVs should become more...

    ISA Communications / Scheduled Deliveries

    My ISA has been top notch. I received a call shortly after the VIN assignment. Every time I email her with questions, I receive a call back within 15 minutes. There are good apples and bad apples. Two weeks 'til my delivery. Can't wait.

    60 Amps vs. 80 Amps

    So I got quotes from 4 places and they ranged between $1,900 - $2,350. While it's a long run (about 95 ft), it's through unfinished part of basement and garage. These electricians sure charge a lot for labor. I watched some more YouTube videos and decided to go get 4 gauge Romex wires (100...

    Woo-hoo. Cherry Hill, NJ Tesla store officially open 4/13/2018

    I visited Short Hills Mall today. They had hundreds of these ready to be given away. I saw a lot of interest in Model 3 and it will probably be packed tomorrow and Sunday. They had a red Model 3 VIN ending F006267.

    What happened to all the fake stick on grille designs? I guess all are happy with the final front end?

    Front License Plate Bracket For Tesla Model 3

    Hopefully someone can measure for us. I am going to guess "long" but don't want to guess. Paging PoitNarf! I want to order this and some accessories from RPM to get ready for delivery hopefully at the end of the month.

    VIN disappeared?

    Mine is back as well. Same 157XX.

    VIN Assignment

    At least 3 East Coast soon to be White Sport owners were assigned VIN 137XX last week then taken away for some reason. This new assignment tells me they didn't remove the VINs for some parts/quality issue, at least.

    Why no Tesla @ NY Auto Show? Even Karma showed up.

    I enjoy going to the annual NY auto show and this year featured a lot of EV/plug in hybrid vehicles, including Karma with its gimmicky solar roof. I knew Tesla would be a no show but why? Even their cars sell by itself, it would be nice to show up and show off the Model 3 or the Roadster!
  29. TheRealM3

    VIN disappeared?

    So it looks like at least 3 white, sport 157XX VINs disappeared.

    Exact cost and financing info

    I just received same 3.24% quote through Tesla > Chase. I am waiting for TechCU's quote. My insurance quote was about $1,100 ($91/m), about $200 higher than other vehicles. Not too bad.

    VIN disappeared?

    Yeah, probably BS.

    VIN disappeared?

    I had submitted a loan application in the morning. My ISA called about the approval but when I inquired about the VIN # disappearing, she said they are shuffling some cars so that we can get our cars sooner or as scheduled as the originally assigned car may have taken longer. We will see about...

    60 Amps vs. 80 Amps

    Thank you for all the information. It looks like there is no real right or wrong answer. I will ponder, get more estimates and go with someone that I am comfortable with.

    60 Amps vs. 80 Amps

    I am getting some quotes to install HPWC but I am a bit confused (I don't know much about electrical stuff). My home services is 200A. One guy suggested 80 amp line with a disconnect switch. Another guy suggested 60 amp line without a disconnect switch (I read in another post that a...

    Guesses on "token of appreciation" for line waiters tweeted by Elon Musk

    I am expecting delivery towards the end of the months. Should I expect a mini-3 or is Elon still working on the "token of appreciation"?

    Non-owner config invites have begun!

    Thank you! I know, Tesla's process is so random. I ordered Pearl White w/ Sport Wheels. It's actually going to be my wife's car but I am sure I will steal it away from her often.
  43. TheRealM3

    Non-owner config invites have begun!

    Finally received the "Your Model 3 is Ready to Order" email at 8PM EST. Configured. Non-owner with Mar - May 2018 estimate. I was about #12 in line on Rt.17 in Paramus, NJ.
