    Anybody come from a sports car to Tesla?

    The P car must stay. Ditch the Bimmer. The M3 will be it's replacement. You need a car to just let loose in and have fun with. I am in the same boat. Have a M3P I purchased in February along with a Tacoma. My BMW Z3 was the occasional driver that wasn't getting the love it deserved. Then I...

    Body shop in Atlanta area

    Posting this for a friend. His Model X was in a fender bender and has been sitting at the body shop now for 11 going on 12 months. At first he was told the hold up was a Tesla related piece of service equipment that needed to be replaced, then it became parts related. He has been told he is...

    Best Car mats/liners for 2022 model 3?

    Best is subjective. I purchased this one, but it now says not for M3P which is odd. Did not know there is a difference between the performance and others, just thought it was the pedal covers. Anyhow, I really like the texture of these...

    My insurance says the vin on my new Tesla is a 2020

    Make sure your insurance company entered the correct VIN. I caught a mistake with my Tacoma a few years after I purchased it by random luck. Who knows what would have happened if I got into an accident.

    Uggh, tired of flat tires, suggestion for wheel/tire combination 18 vs 19"

    As I said originally, call it bad luck or whatever you want but 3 flats in 7 months is a bit over the top considering I have had1 flat in 12 years. .The wheels and tires are just bad luck at this point, I need to change them out, more for comfort than anything, but hoping I have better juju with...

    Uggh, tired of flat tires, suggestion for wheel/tire combination 18 vs 19"

    Thank you for your reply. I have a plug kit and luckily I was able to do the last 2 leaks. Took me about 15-20 minute. Damn those plugs are tough to push in...... lots of lube and full body weight and I was grunting :p

    Uggh, tired of flat tires, suggestion for wheel/tire combination 18 vs 19"

    Possible, one wheel has a bit of road rash at the very top of the rim. A second got a little rash from the handle of my torque wrench today. I have a repair kit for it......

    Uggh, tired of flat tires, suggestion for wheel/tire combination 18 vs 19"

    OK, was not looking forward to having to post this thread. I have had my 2022 M3P since the end of February and I am on my 3rd flat. I have had a total of 1 flat in the preceding 12 yrs in my Tacoma, when I took it off road, in 2010. Done with this. First flat was going past a huge accident...

    Vendor Teslogic — Mobile Instrument Cluster for Tesla Model 3/Y

    Ordered one, the blind spot monitor was the selling point. Hate the on screen camera and animation of surrounding vehicles when changing lanes. I stick to good ol' mirrors and head turn. Looking forward to getting this.

    Headrest material peeling off

    One thing that may be coming into play with the cracking is the oils from our skin/scalps. Also being follicularly challenged, I too use regular shampoos and body wash on my head but I tend to build up a lot of oil on my scalp. Why do I suspect oils? I am in a profession that requires me to...

    Battery Damaged After Hitting Tow Hitch

    There is actually a fix for the nipple. Tesla will not do it since it is not an oem part replacement. Start the video at about 13:45 for the repair.

    Made a mistake while replacing steering wheel... any advice?

    I'm sorry about your dilemma. Hope you can get it fixed without too much hassle. Being a child of the 70s/80s all I could think of when I saw what happened was every kids nightmare.....

    Help me finalize color choice! Blue vs White vs Red

    Of course you did.....you are a pizza dispenser. It'll fit like mozzarella on red sauce. Congrats on your choice. The red is a fabulous color and not many are seen on the road.

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    I see you are in Oro Valley, that is why. I stopped in to the center on Friday to discuss my displeasure with home delivery. They told me only individuals that are outside their home delivery range (50 miles) can pick up at the center. The rep that I spoke with there, a nice young women, was...

    How can I encourage insurance to declare a total loss on my Model 3?

    What happened to your battery that it needs replacement? Did the "nipple" on the coolant line get damaged? If so, there is an aftermarket fix for it that is not very difficult. You can find it on youtube.

    They are definitely black. I got up close and personal with them while putting on the mud guards.

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    Car was home delivered around 12:30 today. Everything looks pretty good, no complaints though I still have to go through all my check lists but everything so far is in working order. I already got all the accessories I purchased in place. Took SWMBO around the block to check it out. I think I...

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    I was scheduled for 3 pm Saturday at Mesa, it was the only option given to me. Today I received a text message saying that I qualify for home delivery and was told I could choose between 9-12 or 12-4. If I did not reply, I would be defaulted to the earlier time. I texted back that I wanted to...

    My buddy suggested I show up to delivery with a gas can in hand and a confused look on my face. 🤔😏

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    Picking it up on Saturday at 3....can't get here soon enough. I looked at Tesla's insurance online. Quoted me $40 less per month than my current carrier (Am Fam), however, the deductible was $500 more and the property damage was 1/2 my current policy. I will stick with Am Fam for now. Also...

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    I ordered 12/30 and still waiting on a VIN. Blue/Black and cash. Frustrating to see others take delivery of blues that ordered after me.

    Model 3 - P3D - total loss

    My recommendation would be to stop dealing with the other insurance company at all and if they contact you again give them the number of your agent or the person who is handling the claim with your company. If your company wants your car sent to another location, then let them deal with it...

    Model 3 - P3D - total loss

    Have you gotten your insurance company involved? They need to cover your back in negotiations since the other cars company has already agreed to fault. I would start w/ KBB as a basis. With the craziness of used car prices at this time, your car may be worth a bit more than what is listed, but...

    Fantastic, does this mean there is hope they made a batch of blue M3Ps? My EDD is today thru March 8th, so tomorrow it will change. 🤞

    Will a Tesla work for me?

    Where is your dryer located in relation to your garage? I only have 1 slot left in my main panel box. For the short term I purchased a garage buddy and will have it installed just to the inside of my laundry room which is directly off my garage. I can still charge 220 but only at 24A. Long...

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    Ha Ha, thought so......They stand to make more money off of financing than cash. I figured it would be in batches of color. Looking at the increased cost of blue or red, my guess is they would make priority of getting them out quicker. Guess not. I don't see many blues on the road and there...

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    Here I thought that they would give the more expensive paint colors some priority. Silly me :rolleyes: My other conspiracy theory was paying cash vs financing ;)
