    Moved from NJ to FL with Tesla, Do I pay Sales tax?

    In Florida, sales tax is paid during the transfer of ownership (sale) of all new and used vehicles, including electric. Your situation is different as there is no transfer of ownership, so no additional sales tax will be required.

    Central Florida Coilover Installers?

    I'm almost looking for an installer in the greater Orlando area of Florida. Need to do some lowering springs and alignment. Most shops don't want to work on Tesla's because they are unfamiliar and think electric vehicle suspensions are completely different. Or they price gouge you because they...

    Condensation in tail light

    It is a quality issue with Tesla's supplier for the rear tail lights. The manufacturer does a terrible job of fusing the two halves of the tail light. Tesla doesn't seem to be concerned about the quality control issue, probably because lower cost & standards go hand in hand. This is also why...

    New Model 3 Lease Promo Code

    I sent you a screenshot of the order page. At the end when you are about to place order with the $100 down payment, there is an option on the bottom right to select lease. Also this comes up later in the FINANCE portion of your order details. That is where they ask about how much down payment...

    Power was shutdown for less than 5 minutes for our install. Medium 8kw system, 24 panels, no powerwall. Our existing electrical system, main panel and sub didn't require any changes.

    Florida solar utility liability insurance requirements

    As someone in the utility business, I can confirm that you should direct your letter to the Florida PSC. FPL will not budge from these requirements. All electric utilities in Florida have similar requirements. They are regulated by the PSC and they potentially can force changes. It would...

    Charging my Y with a NEMA 14-50

    This is the normal charging rate. You are using the include UMC mobile charger and plugging into the nema 14-50 outlet, correct? Also be aware that your charging rate will slow down as the battery nears full. This is automatically adjusted by the vehicle.

    Special characters in last name are not allowed.

    I recall it being a glitch in their system. The description for the error is wrong. I would delete all the other fields (first name, last, address, email etc) and start again. Be careful with the address, email and phone number formats.

    Just purchased a 2017 90D - good deal?

    May want to list the price along with full interior and exterior photos. Its hard to determine if something is a good value without a price.

    Model 3 LR Demo

    Ask for the warranty expiration date. While a dealer might consider a demo vehicle as "New" on the day they sell to you, the clock on the warranty is already rolling. Usually starts on date the vehicle is place in service and not on date of sale like a traditional vehicle. So you may not get...

    Model 3 Collision

    The total loss is determined by your insurance company and they all tend to have differing standards. Body damage is not too bad, if the power train was damaged then more likely for total loss. What version of the Model 3 do you have?

    Model 3 Collision

    Sorry for the accident. I hope everyone was okay. It really sucks that you just got the vehicle and now a major accident.

    Product Review- BougieRV Trunk Organizer

    I purchased this exact organizer but from a different vendor (largest online store, you know who I am talking about). The organizer does fit in the sub trunk and is well made. I am very happy with it and use it at least once a week.

    How do I get the window sticker and bill of sale

    They can reprint the window sticker if needed and not abnormal. Sometimes these window stickers need to be "corrected" as options are added or removed. This also happens at dealerships for other brands.

    Elon: Wi-Fi-based garbage-door opening coming soon!

    The delay is minimal, usually less than 3 seconds. Most smart garage door openers are continuously connected to the home WiFi network. Generally your phone and probably the Tesla will not be connected to WiFi, instead it is using the mobile network (LTE) to connect to the smart garage opener. I...

    Forgive me Elon for I have sinned! (HUD rough in)

    This actually looks good, nice and clean. I really wish Tesla had an option for the HUD or if their was a 3rd party solution that had a seamless fit (OEM Look).

    Any delivery in Florida?

    Check your loan agreement, it will list the VIN. They did the same thing to me, listed VIN and removed a few hours later but the loan agreement doc still has the new VIN.

    Any delivery in Florida?

    Wow, that is super fast. So you ordered and received your model Y in less than 10 days. Probably a record. I was contemplating a model Y but couldn't stand the estimated wait.

    Did I buy a dud?

    There is no way anybody from an online forum would be able to make that determination. if you're buying a used car that should be inspected by a qualified mechanic that's familiar with the vehicle.

    Any delivery in Florida?

    No worries, Tesla service center will still be open. They are on the very long list of exempt businesses. These stay at home orders are so ridiculous and have so many exemptions. They mostly block recreational activities, shopping and social events. The news just likes to sensationalize it.

    Your helpful guide to the Tesla Model 3 parking brake

    Is the "manual" parking brake exactly the same as the regular parking brake? or is it similar to a hand brake on a regular vehicle. If they are exactly the same then why is there even a need for a "manual" brake mode?

    Charging cable - doesn't come with the Model 3 anymore?

    Looks to be about 12" right angle lightning cable. Most people are going with the Tesla or Nomad wireless phone chargers instead of using the cables.

    New Nav maps coming?

    Wish it was seamless updates like google maps but Tesla's updates are way faster and better than any other car manufacturers (without Apple Carplay or Android Auto).

    Are Service Centers Still Open???

    Our service centers are open here in Florida. With the current situation the best thing to do with most business is to give a quick call to confirm they are open. Here auto suppliers and auto repair are on the long list of exempt businesses.
