    This is all really interesting stuff, thanks everyone.

    Separate company for Solar -vs- Powerwall

    I apologize, I'm actually in Maryland now. We moved 3 months ago (moving during COVID was super fun). Excellent feedback though, thank you very much.

    Separate company for Solar -vs- Powerwall

    So this company is awesome. They actually talked me down from 4 Powerwalls lol. We talked about our total usage, what we're realistically looking for from the Powerwalls, and what make sense for us. Fortunately no upselling from these guys. They're an awesome company - just not competitive...

    Separate company for Solar -vs- Powerwall

    Have a Model 3 and love it, but Tesla's customer service reputation has made me want to avoid them for Solar. We found a great local company that gets great reviews from our Tesla club. Have a 13.6 kW system designed for us that meets our needs. Really happy with that. They're a bit pricier...

    Audio system crashes when making call over bluetooth

    I had the same issue once, while driving. The pop was pretty extreme and I thought I legit blew some speakers. Since then, my bluetooth connection randomly drops. I will also make a call sometimes and the phone won't play on car speakers. It's really annoying.

    Moving to Maryland

    Thanks guys. I'll be working at Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling. Wife and I found a home in Waldorf. Commute seems somewhat reasonable. I'm still trying to figure out the logistics of moving in times like these. Couldn't have picked a worse time to relocate.

    Moving to Maryland

    I've accepted a job in DC and will be moving there within the next few weeks. I'll be working on the south side of DC, so I was thinking we'd stay in Maryland. Anyone have any recommends of neighborhoods we should check out or avoid? I have a 4 year old, so we'd want an area with good...

    Model Y Door Handle and Camera Covers

    I noticed the Model Y has dark door handles and camera covers. Anyone know if we can swap them over to our 3s? I'd love to get an actual dark pieces as opposed to a wrap.

    Is this a defect in Window?

    I had that same problem on delivery. I scheduled an appointment and they fixed it. You are correct in that it's a defect.

    WOW...Superbowl commercials taking aim at Tesla.

    We should be happy for more EV adoption. Also, more competition for Tesla is good. It'll drive even further innovation, and if we're lucky, better customer support.

    Supercharger Desert in Maryland

    Thanks for all the info.. I saw that empty map above and got nervous.

    Supercharger Desert in Maryland

    Looking at moving to the DC area soon. I've been looking for Superchargers for my Model 3 and it feels like Maryland is pretty barren. I'm coming from DFW, Texas where we have a bunch. Is there a reason for this?

    Any way to know if I'm getting a loaner from the service center?

    Thanks for the info everyone, appreciate it. Unfortunately I have a new battle now: Tesla is trying to charge me $480 for the work. I don't even know how to question it. This'll be fun to deal with.

    Any way to know if I'm getting a loaner from the service center?

    I have to drop my car off next week at the service center so they can fix a large paint chip that was identified during delivery. The SC is about an hour away, so I was hoping I could get a loaner. I can't seem to find any possible way to get a human being on the phone at that SC. Is there...

    EoY 2019 Deliveries: Quality Control Thread

    Interior trim issue on my door, and paint issue on my front fender. The trim is being fixed in 2 days. Then I'll schedule an appointment for the paint. Otherwise, she's an awesome car!

    Microphone and voice recognition not working after install of 2019.40.50.1

    It's just a software bug. That's part of getting updates like these, you take the risk for the new features. No one forced you guys to accept the update :) I'm sure they'll fix it in time.

    Cost to charge at home?

    The plan I have is free nights from 8pm to 6am. Rate during the day isn't great, but we are at work/school so it's not bad. We run the washer/dryer, dishwasher, and charge the car at night.

    My panels were perfect. I had a paint chip in the front and an interior trim piece that's warped.

    LR AWD Performance (Stealth TM3) Waiting Room

    Picked up my car today. Love this thing! 2 minor defects that they noted.. I'll get them fixed eventually. The acceleration is unreal. The car is also an amazing machine. Love Autopilot!

    LR AWD Performance (Stealth TM3) Waiting Room

    My delivery got pushed back a day due to not getting the temp plates. The car has been at the delivery center for a week, so I'm bummed that they waited till last minute. Oh well. Wednesday now.

    racing(getting on a track) a model 3 standard plus stock tires.

    A slow car is excellent for a beginner. You learn how to go fast while going slow, aka focusing on the technical part of racing. Once the foundations are solid, you can start adding more power. Have fun!

    Really excited for everyone! Can't wait to post my delivery pics on the 17th.

    LR AWD Performance (Stealth TM3) Waiting Room

    I hate the phrase "within spec". That doesn't mean anything. Sounds like more and more people are being told that, which tells me they're probably being trained to say that. I'm going to ask to be shown the spec if I'm told that. I'm paying $60k for the car and defects aren't "within spec".

    LR AWD vs LR AWD (Stealth) Performance resale value?

    I'm picking mine up in 2 weeks. There are some out there, but they're going quick.
  31. iamroy

    LR AWD vs LR AWD (Stealth) Performance resale value?

    It's the same as LR-AWD, but it has whatever is needed to get the performance speed without the visual components (brakes, wheels, spoiler, etc.). It's also about $7k cheaper than the full performance.

    LR AWD vs LR AWD (Stealth) Performance resale value?

    No one can predict the future. Figure out what you want and get that.

    Purgatory..aka couldn’t make delivery date waiting room

    That's kind of a shitty way to put it. Life happens. People wait months for these things. Then they're told you have a 2 day window to get your vehicle, and by the way this is during a time when most people are on travel. I do think it's pretty unfair for Tesla to give people such a short...

    What Kind of Car Did The Model 3 Replace?

    My 2019 Civic SI. I honestly love this car. I've owned a lot of great cars (Corvettes, WRX, Jeeps), but this is far and away my favorite. It's wrong-wheel-drive, but still a ton of fun and cheaper than any of my other cars. Ignoring the understeer, it's a great driver's car. The front LSD...

    LR AWD Performance (Stealth TM3) Waiting Room

    Got my Mvpa. All that's left now is to pick up the car in a few weeks. They were able to push my delivery date out 5 days due to me being out of country. My SA and delivery agent really came through at the end.
  37. iamroy

    LR AWD Performance (Stealth TM3) Waiting Room

    I have a link to an MVPA, but it doesn't load properly. My delivery agent called for something else and when I asked him, he confirmed that the servers were down. He said he'd just email me it.

    LR AWD Performance (Stealth TM3) Waiting Room

    Just order a Stealth from someone else and cancel your current order. It's worth losing the $100 if it means getting what you want.

    Payment b4 delivery in Texas

    Got my delivery date in Texas. Depending on your lender, it could be pretty easy. I used USAA so they do everything with Tesla. I just sent them the loan document that USAA gave me, and I pick up my car on the 17th.

    I meant on the webpage. I don't have the option to add FSD anymore.

    Lost ability to add FSD

    Since my order was changed to Stealth, I no longer have the ability to add FSD to my account. Anyone else having this issue?

    Has Anyone Else Gone Anti-Stealth Model 3???

    Deep Blue Metallic - Show me pictures of your car today!

    Looks badass! I see you took your Aero covers off. Have you noticed significant range loss? I actually think the covers look cool, but the wheels underneath are a lot better!

    Financing through USAA

    I was initially with USAA, but Bank of America gave me a better rate. In order to get the same rate with USAA, I would've had to use their dealer service. Tesla isn't on that list, so can't exactly do that.

    Keep ‘18 LR RWD with FSD or upgrade to P3D - sleeper with no FSD

    lol, get over yourself man. Bigger brakes, wheels, and a spoiler does not make a track car. None of these cars are track cars. They're fun, they're fast, but far from an ideal car to take to a track. No need to gatekeep. The Stealths are really fun cars, just like the full performance...
