    Awesome! It looks great!

    Texas Hold Up!

    Congrats! That’s curious. I guess you are using LATCH and it thinks you should be engaging the seatbelt? Are you using LATCH in the center seat?

    Texas Hold Up!

    17 days to VIN and another 23 days to delivery. Very close to 6 weeks total. I think it was 2 days from VIN to phone call.

    Texas Hold Up!

    By far the least desirable, and I’m not sure why. Congrats to you! A lot has changed in the past 9 days!

    Texas Hold Up!

    I picked up my silver Model 3 at the North Houston SC yesterday. I love it! I love the screen. I don’t miss the heads up display. I love the size! I can park so easily and the car doesn’t take up the entire parking space. The weirdest thing for me has been trying to get used to the blinker...

    Texas Hold Up!

    Taking delivery of my silver tomorrow!

    Texas Hold Up!

    That’s correct - they won’t ship the car to Texas until you pay.

    Just in time! Congrats!

    Court rules Texas liquor store laws unconstitutional-- precedent for Tesla?

    Re: the main post - federal court will be our only way out of the current dealership structure. The dealers’ association is too powerful for a political change. I could see the same rationale being applied to car dealerships as is being applied here to liquor licenses.

    Court rules Texas liquor store laws unconstitutional-- precedent for Tesla?

    Are the liquor stores separate from the main stores? That may get around it. Regular grocery stores can’t sell hard liquor - only beer and wine.

    Model 3 Financing: How can i achieve low monthly payments ? Other questions...

    A $35,000 60-month loan at 2.5% would be about a $625/month payment.

    Texas Hold Up!

    I am confirmed for delivery next Friday 3/30 at the North Houston SC. Silver/Aero. Woo hoo!

    Texas Hold Up!

    I had to wait 3 months after I configured my Model S for them to build and deliver it. It was worth the wait. There is no car like a Tesla IMO. Be patient.

    Texas Hold Up!

    Congrats! The silver looks great! I should have my own silver in 2 weeks.

    Model 3 in Houston

    I saw a blue one charging at the nhsc a few weeks ago. My co-worker showed up with his new blue 3 yesterday. It wa pretty exciting. I have a VIN but no delivery date yet.

    Texas Hold Up!

    And 2 hours later I have a VIN!!!!!!!! 70xx I configured 2/18, so 17 days from configuration to VIN. My original invite was 1/24. Silver/aero
  17. M

    Texas Hold Up!

    Exciting! I ordered on 2/18 for Houston delivery - I hope I don’t have to wait much longer for a VIN.

    Texas Hold Up!

    Awesome to hear! I didn’t configure for 3 weeks after my invite because I couldn’t choose between blue and silver. I finally ordered silver.

    Texas Hold Up!

    That’s awful. I’m on Day 15 and starting to get a little antsy.

    I keep wavering back and forth between a Model S and Model 3

    You will love driving a Tesla no matter which one you buy. I live in a large urban area and hate driving the freeways. I bought my S in 2014 when I was commuting 20 miles each way to work, and it improved my driving experience considerably. Now my commute is only 3 miles and I largely avoid the...

    Silver or White? Help!

    I always think of white cars as fleet cars, so I’ve never considered buying one for personal use.

    Silver or White? Help!

    I ordered silver a week ago. When I bought my red S, I was coming from a silver Milan, but the silver S looked bland and red really was the best color for a 2014-style S with the bigger black nose cone. I think it looks silver looks great on the 3. The lighter colors highlight the lines and...

    Texas Hold Up!

    I wonder why these credit unions are overnighting checks instead of sending wires. Wires should actually be cheaper and easier for them.

    No blindspot warning on Model 3?

    With every car I have owned, I looked over my shoulder to check blind spots. Until my 2014 Model S (pre-AP). I feel like it doesn’t have blind spots - my mirrors cover everything.

    Texas Hold Up!

    I hope so, and I hope SA delivery gets going and you get your VIN any minute now.

    Texas Hold Up!

    I’m starting the VIN wait today for my silver with aero wheels.

    Tesla would not match my CarMax appraisal on M3

    I’m trying the online route with Carvana. It’s been 2 days and I haven’t heard back. I’m still waiting on Tesla too. Vroom offered me $4k more than CarMax.

    Model S to model 3 regret?

    This is me. My S was one of the very last non-AP models produced in 3Q14 (some people in CA took delivery of their AP cars before my non-AP car was delivered to TX). I could really use the extra 45 miles of range on usual road trips. Additonally, owning a $100k car is not really something I...

    Texas Hold Up!

    My configuration opened 1/24 and I have still not received an email. I haven’t ordered yet.

    Tesla would not match my CarMax appraisal on M3

    I remember when I bought my S in 2014, I couldn’t do the buyback guarantee program because Tesla couldn’t offer financing in Texas.

    Tesla would not match my CarMax appraisal on M3

    Try vroom.com. It’s pretty easy.
