    19 sport wheels vs Aero - Ride Quality?

    I know there’s many comparisons for looks between 19s vs Aeros. I care more about ride quality / comfort. I currently have a 21 M3 with 19 sport wheels. Recently rented a 21 M3 with Aeros and the ride quality seemed much better - softer on bumpy roads and handling was still very good , I...

    Got Hit n Run in Parking Lot - TeslaCam caught it!

    The other drivers insurance co. agreed to finally accept full responsibility They have allowed $6,500 towards repairs and allotted 6 days to repair. My car is driveable, so hoping all the parts can be ordered prior to work starting. I’m in process of choosing a body shop, it won’t be Tesla...

    Got Hit n Run in Parking Lot - TeslaCam caught it!

    The other driver's Insurance Appraiser came out to see my car yesterday and they said the damage is under $6,500, so it is covered under policy limit. But, they have NOT been able to contact their driver - they have been trying to call them, but no answer. So, Adjuster told me, if they cannot...

    Got Hit n Run in Parking Lot - TeslaCam caught it!

    how did you get the guys insurance company info.? Most likely, his insurance company is terrible / won't play nicely / your damage over their policy limit, (assuming this since most Hit n Runners are doing so b/c they know they have a bad record / coverage/ etc.) if above is true, your best...

    Everything wrong with V11 update / user interface.

    Terrible v11 , how can Tesla be so dumb? Almost everything got worse. How do I turn on heated seats without turning on AC/ fan? When I click to turn off FAN to 0, it turns off heated seats too. How stupid!!!

    Got Hit n Run in Parking Lot - TeslaCam caught it!

    Seems like the easy thing to do is just go through my own insurance company, Progressive It looks like I will get my $1k back at some point, so why even bother with Kemper? Right? I have 100/300/100 and coverage for UM and UIM etc , full coverage

    Got Hit n Run in Parking Lot - TeslaCam caught it!

    If I file a claim through my insurance , I have to pay $1,000 deductible. My insurance said they would go after the other guys insurance to get reimbursed etc, BUT, there is no guarantee I get my deductible back / and if I do, it could take 4-5 months to get my $1,000 back. If I go through his...

    Got Hit n Run in Parking Lot - TeslaCam caught it!

    In the state of CA - the Police do not get involved in determining fault. The insurance companies/lawyers are left to figure it out. I'm originally from Georgia, where the Police DO assign fault and the insurance companies go by what Police says. In CA, it is not that way. In my case, I...

    My insurance rep called today and said he contacted at fault drivers Ins company and opened a claim. Infinity (Kemper) Insurance -- Never heard of it. He advised I work with his insurance company and work with them on the claim to get my car repaired. So, now I'm awaiting a follow up from...

    Got Hit n Run in Parking Lot - TeslaCam caught it!

    I spoke to Police officer today, he came over the house. He asked if I want to pursue it as a criminal case or just incident report. What should I do? He said, for a criminal case - I would have to act as a “victim of a crime” and then file charges vs driver for him to have any real...

    Got Hit n Run in Parking Lot - TeslaCam caught it!

    I had just entered a parking lot and saw this SUV shoot out of a parking aisle and almost hit the car in front of me. Seconds later, he veers head on towards my car , I hit the car horn about 3 seconds before he hits me, he didn't even make an attempt to stop. I got phone number of a witness...

    New M3 makes whistling noise at 78+mph

    Put in a request for Tesla Service. They want to charge me $205 to diagnose the issue. My car is less than 2 weeks old. Less than 400 miles on it. What a joke

    New M3 makes whistling noise at 78+mph

    Got a new 2021 M3 ST+ 2 weeks ago. On the highway, speeds between 78-83 mph, I notice a faint whistle/flute like sound. Thought it was my music at first, but have since been able to replicate this “flute like” sound many times going over 80 mph. What in the hell is going on? What do I even...

    new car, plastic piece came loose under car

    Got my car about a week ago. Noticed it would make a rattle noise when backing out of my driveway sometimes. Didn’t think too much of it. Only have 100 miles on the car. Today, I noticed something sticking out from under the car, under the frunk area. Took a closer look and found a large...

    Do I have LFP or NCA Battery? (SR+)

    I made a mistake - the app does not show daily / trip — but, the car does show it
  19. Tezla1

    Do I have LFP or NCA Battery? (SR+)

    Charge screen in car does show Daily / Trip So, I suppose I do have the NCA, considering the GVVR and 264 mile full charge and daily / trip feature
  20. Tezla1

    Do I have LFP or NCA Battery? (SR+)

    There is no trip / daily setting in the app or car. I just see the notches for roughly 50,60,70,80,90% etc. so, this would indicate it is an LPF? But, my max charge shows 264 miles, which indicates NCA? Or maybe not since s/w on LPF was updated to match NCA mileage? And my GVVR is 4446...

    Do I have LFP or NCA Battery? (SR+)

    on the app, there is no daily or trip My GVVR is 4446 I wish Tesla made it clear what battery you have without us having to play guessing games

    Do I have LFP or NCA Battery? (SR+)

    I just took delivery of a 2021 Model 3 SR+. How can I know for certain what battery type I have? LFP or NCA? Where can I find out battery details of my car? Is there a setting in car, app, Tesla account?

    SR/SR+ (Model 3 RWD) Waiting Room

    Weird. I just went to my car, opened it and sat in the car for 2 mins. I then checked my Tesla App, and max charge shows "charge limit: 263"

    SR/SR+ (Model 3 RWD) Waiting Room

    My order was for NCA battery, order placed 7/31. my battery shows it can be max charged to 258 miles. Do I have NCA? I thought it would go to 263?

    SR/SR+ (Model 3 RWD) Waiting Room

    Yes, I noticed it does say "in production". I thought existing inventory means it would be available to pickup now. So, placing a new order for existing inventory may not mean that I get the car much earlier than the 9/30 EDD on my existing order from 7/30 ?
  34. Tezla1

    SR/SR+ (Model 3 RWD) Waiting Room

    I just see new cars available in existing inventory in my city. If I place a new order for existing inventory, will they credit me back the $100 deposit I paid for my old order? I'm thinking to just place an order right now so I can get it this week

    SR/SR+ (Model 3 RWD) Waiting Room

    I have an EDD 9/12-9/30 for NCA order placed 7/30. SR+ 19inch wheels. No VIN If I want my car faster, do you guys recommend I place a new order for LPF and it will come before 9/12-9/30? or should I just leave it alone?

    Model 3 - Makes more sense to Lease vs Finance...here's the numbers

    60% might sound conservative in the current market , but we’re talking about the market in 2024-2025. Do you expect chip shortage to exist another 3 years + covid delays? Even the best Luxury cars have residuals no greater than 62-63%. So, I think 60% might be a lot closer than the 80%...

    Model 3 - Makes more sense to Lease vs Finance...here's the numbers

    Makes sense, but to be fair, you must add in the cost of maintenance and possible large repair bills that come with owning a car that is 5 years old, not to mention 7-8 year old car. With Tesla, wouldn’t be surprised if you end up spending $4,000-$6,000 in repairs from year 4-10

    Model 3 - Makes more sense to Lease vs Finance...here's the numbers

    Good catch! I forgot to add that. It’s a $395 fee. So, that brings lease cost to: $27,111 - approximately same as CASH method

    Model 3 - Makes more sense to Lease vs Finance...here's the numbers

    Leasing better than Financing or even Cash?? I'm a serial leaser for over 12+ years and very knowledgeable about how to construct a lease deal. Tesla has been known to typically be a "bad leasing" candidate due to how they structure their leases. But lately, it seems Lease structure is much...

    Ordered a Lease - Want to change to Cash - will my delivery date get pushed back?

    Placed order 7/30 for Model 3 - payment: Lease. Current Delivery Estimate: 9/12-9/30. Today, I decided I want to finance the car instead of leasing it (I'll get loan from my credit union @ 1.99%) so, I should ask my Tesla SA to change my payment method to CASH? IF I make this change...
