    Anybody come from a sports car to Tesla?

    Not sure how you live in Cali, with both those cars, and still qualify for the tax credit!

    Discussion: Large price reduction Across Tesla vehicle family 1.12.2023

    The service center Reps have zero idea what Elon is going to do with prices in April.

    Discussion: Large price reduction Across Tesla vehicle family 1.12.2023

    You are better off holding on to that car. The cost for a new 2023 version of your car, including the tax credit is down to $47.5K. Your price would need to come down to the low $40k range now.

    Discussion: Large price reduction Across Tesla vehicle family 1.12.2023

    Currently have a 2020 M3 and was looking to upgrade to a P3 in March. I know everyone is complaining about the sudden "crash" in their resale value, but for those that do not qualify for the tax credit, buying a slightly used Tesla may be the best value. Any thoughts on the best site to find a...

    Why choose Model 3 over Model Y if you can have more trunk space?

    Speed, handling, looks and range

    Model 3, LR-AWD First Impressions

    I'm pretty sure everyone in the US that owns a Tesla has an unlimited data plan!

    Blind Spot Monitoring

    While that is likely true, I just do not understand it. If FSD ever becomes a reality, it will be a nice feature. However, I did not buy a car that goes 0-60 in 3.something seconds to have a computer drive it full time!

    Got some road rash during a fender bender. Tips on cost or time to repair, diminished value, etc?

    I would also guess that you have over $7,000 in damage.

    Got some road rash during a fender bender. Tips on cost or time to repair, diminished value, etc?

    What he said! The process is not as long anymore, but stay involved. They will try to cut corners. When I had damage due to the other party's fault, on my six month old car, they wanted to buff this and paint that. I pushed back and got all new body parts, with fresh paint.

    MASTER THREAD: Removing marks from white seats

    I use Dawn/water, then go over it with a Magic Eraser. Wipe down and all those stretch marks are gone!

    NJ EV Vehicle Rebate Budget Cut

    I purchased my M3 on 3/21. Was applicant 0399 and received my $5,000 check last week.
  15. M

    Jumped too quickly into purchase!!

    If the car you are comparing to was in NJ, the price may include the $5,000 NJ tax credit, which you wouldn't qualify for in NY.

    "Acceleration Boost" option, discussion as to which models and how much quicker

    Good....You will appreciate it more and look at it as cheap $2,000 investment allowing you to be one of the fastest on the road. I bought mine in March. I wanted the Performance model, but back then couldn't keep the price below the $55k NJ cap to receive the $5k tax credit. My first day with...

    "Acceleration Boost" option, discussion as to which models and how much quicker

    Something like this 0-60/30-50/50-70 comparative times for 70D/85D/P85D The difference is highly significant. Your issue is you ordered it too soon and were still infatuated with the non-boosted power. If you cancel the order now, you would be scrambling for your credit card once you feel the...

    Switched Order From Y to 3, lost $100

    The Tesla he wanted was a 6+ month wait. He did not say that he was walking away. He purchased a Tesla! It' the same company. Please post a pic of your Tesla tattoo. Good god!

    Switched Order From Y to 3, lost $100

    Stop it, Akiki! A 6+ wait time for the Y and he was still buying a $50k+ car. Any rational business would give back the $100!

    Temporary Registration during COVID19

    I bought mine on 3/21 and the temporary tags just expired. I called my service center and was told that the state of NJ has extended temporary tags by a month. They did anticipate my plates within a week or so...

    returning and getting performance?

    With the acceleration boost, you can still drive the car like it's a Honda Accord. It did not impact normal driving in any way. However, if you should decide to push the pedal all the way down...My wife and daughter have made me promise to never press the pedal all the way down again! Not to...

    returning and getting performance?

    The torque and speed are very noticeable. Everyone's situation is different. For me, the $2k was a bargain and I would do it again without hesitation. I'm in NJ, so I needed to keep my cost under $55,000 to qualify for the $5,000 credit and no sales tax, so the Performance was out. For just $2k...

    returning and getting performance?

    I said I wasn't going to do it, but couldn't stand driving it knowing, that by pushing a button, I could make it faster and better! I held out for three days! It is a very noticeable difference. You can feel the blood rushing up your body!

    returning and getting performance?

    I took delivery of my LR AWD on 3/21. Paid $2k for the acceleration boost, and couldn't be happier!

    Software version still on 2019.35.109

    The only major difference is that you cannot get the acceleration boost without the update.

    Today is the Day!

    I picked up my 3 on 3/21. Zero interest in the Y. If I was looking for a family SUV, one that goes 0-60 in sub-five seconds would not be high on my list. Got the 3 and it is amazing!

    "Acceleration Boost" option, discussion as to which models and how much quicker

    The car did a soft reset, the next time I went in and the boost was there after. All good and very fast!

    New cars coming with 2019.35.108 V10.1 ?

    Just went back in the car and it did a soft reset. The boost showed up! A whole different kind of fast!

    "Acceleration Boost" option, discussion as to which models and how much quicker

    Steve, I was in the same boat as you. I bought the boost before I received the updated software. I just downloaded the latest version, but the boost is not there. It shows that I purchased it on my software screen, but still says Chill and Standard. Did yours update to Sport immediately...

    New cars coming with 2019.35.108 V10.1 ?

    I just finished downloading the update, but my acceleration boost is still not active. It shows the activation boost on the software screen, but in the driving display it still shows "standard" instead of "Sport". Was your boost there right after the update?

    Did you get notified by your phone? Or do you need to check in the car?

    New cars coming with 2019.35.108 V10.1 ?

    This is my beef! It's bad enough that the car is delivered with software that is four months old, but why are they allowing me to pay $2,000 for an upgrade I can't use?!?! When prepping the car for delivery, they should ensure the car is up to speed.

    I'm on 2020.4, and still no updates. Is there a way to force my M3 to update?

    I picked up my car yesterday and paid $2K for the performance boost last night. It shows up under my account, but is not loaded onto my car because they delivered the car operating on version 2019.35! In this instance, I thought it appropriate to submit a service request.

    LR AWD Waiting Room

    They called me yesterday morning and asked if I could get their by noon to pick the car up before they are forced to shut down. Car is in great shape, with the exception of condensation in the left taillight (likely from when they washed the car). I ordered the performance boost last night...

    LR AWD Waiting Room

    So I ordered on Wednesday (3/11) LR Blue/White 18s. Today, two days later, I received a text, "Your Model 3 is in transit and ready to be scheduled for delivery!" Two days!?! When I ordered, two days ago, the site said 8-12 weeks. Should I be concerned?

    14-50 back in stock!

    Tried to order but got "Error code: KR36" saying to contact my bank. Tried multiple cards and multiple browsers. Same error message. I googled the error message and it seems others have had the same issue, but could not find a resolution. Any ideas?
