    Model S won't sleep

    I'm relatively sure cabin overheat protection is off. I don't believe Teslamate is at fault, our 3 is sleeping fine. It's just that using Teslamate made the insomnia visible on the S.

    Model S won't sleep

    I don't know how long it's been going on, but it's been noticable since I installed Teslamate a few weeks ago. The attached screen shot from Tesla mate shows our Model 3 (which is sleeping) and our Model S (which isn't). It's a May 2017 60(75)D with MCU1. Teslamate is the only third party...

    Getting homelink installed post purchase on 2017 Model S

    We picked up our Model S in mid 2017 and on ordering was told it had homelink. It said it had it but we could never get it to work. We let it go. I hassled Tesla a little before we were due to pickup our model 3 and the service department tells me it was a firmware error and it didn't have it...

    Tesla Model 3 in Australia

    It's a pretty chunky cable, it would survive it, but I wouldn't want to do it on a regular basis. Get a cable channel.

    Model 3 Accessories

    I got a ToughPro rubber boot mat from ebay, about $175 delivered. Nice mat, I just use the pressure washer on it and sit it in the sun to dry. They also have frunk and sub-boot mats too, the package of all 3 is about $275 but I didn't bother as I almost never use the frunk or sub-boot. ToughPRO...

    Tesla or Hybrids Rental Tassie December

    You wouldn't drive down to Melbourne and take the ferry across ?

    Autopilot feature lag gripe.

    Politics aside, I'd place a fair wager that the reason we don't have navigate on autopilot is more a matter of what NOA is. NOA will navigate between freeways and I'm talking about real freeways, no traffic lights, no give way signs, no stop signs, no slowing down merging from one freeway to...

    Tesla Model 3 in Australia

    I picked up on Friday and I've just had a chance to go over the car thoroughly, a couple of dimples, a couple of instances where something has taken the paint off and the top glass isn't aligned both sides where the front glass meets the back, the glass isn't the same width and the "chrome"...

    Tesla Model 3 in Australia

    They didn't check my ID either, but I dare say ifI couldn't log into the Tesla account on the phone App, they'd start asking questions.

    Tesla Model 3 in Australia

    April 1st reservation (Was I an April fool, 42 months later i certainly feel like one), May 31st order and delivery today. Finally! 11am today, car, cars everywhere. They wanted to go through their spiel, but it got derailed when she tried to pair my phone under the guise of music and I pulled...

    Can those that have picked up and are using their iphone as a phone key, is it true you need to take it out to wake the phone so it can recognise you ?

    Tesla Model 3 in Australia

    There is no range difference between P- and LR. The difference in range between P+ and LR is just the wheels, nothing else, not that you can put Aeros on P+ due to the brake calipers

    Tesla Model 3 in Australia

    I don't know about leasing, I'm paying cash, but I've got the invoice, filled out the registration document, paid for it and am now awaiting delivery (tomorrow) and mine says the same thing - The payment box isn't filled in.

    Tesla Model 3 in Australia

    I've attached the file (NSW only, that's what they sent me) Here's the text from the email they sent me - As discussed, please find your registration documents attached to fill out, sign and scan back to us. NSW Personal: Please answer questions 1, 2, 9, 10 and 12. Two signatures are...

    Tesla Model 3 in Australia

    They sent over the NSW RMS registration form which needs to be filled out, signed, scanned and returned to them so they can register the vehicle before delivery. I dare say some lucky person has to set down and register 40 cars every morning or afternoon for the days / next days delivery. With...

    Tesla Model 3 in Australia

    My P3D- is due for delivery on Friday and my phone just rang, it was 02 8424 95XX.... Tesla in Sydney and it made me nervous considering how some other people have been delayed. Are they confirming ? Is there a problem ? Are they going to delay delivery... Thankfully, everything is fine, they...

    Model S 19" - anyone got Continental or Bridgestone tyres?

    Check out Costco for tires. Tesla quoted me $520ea for 2 x replacements when my partner took a chunk out one of the sidewalls. Costco were $330 each. Only thing you need to watch is that they inflate them enough.

    Wifi connection, St Leonards

    Our AP2.0 Model S has the same problem, just sits there forever trying to connect, I tried about a week ago. I'd never tried to connect to it before. I almost never charge there so I didn't worry about it.

    Tesla Model 3 in Australia

    Woohoo! I got my call on Monday with a delivery date and I've had a potential buyer for my STi for several weeks now, so the sale is happening over the weekend and so it's just a few days without a car before I pick up my Model 3 on Friday. So considering the money needs to be in the account 2...

    Tesla Model 3 in Australia

    I considered it very briefly, but at the end of the day, Tesla wouldn't give a crap, they'd sell it to someone else in seconds and I would have missed out on a great car. In short I'm buying it in spite of the service. I saw how somebody cancelled and ordered a model X instead, <sarcasm>that'll...

    Tesla Model 3 in Australia

    It's a traditional thing that a new car will have less than 50km on it. It doesn't need to be on the invoice. In reality it'll most likely be somewhere between three and seven.

    Tesla Model 3 in Australia

    +1 It's also left a sour taste in my mouth, lets start with the email they sent in April 2016 - "Those who own Model S or Model X cars will be offered priority production slots as a special thanks for supporting the Tesla mission.". The next lie was in the Model 3 faq - "First deliveries are...

    Unfortunately, they screw you in other ways, you might be rating one for life "(of the policy)" but they will still increase the cost of the policy because you've claimed :(

    What's the consensus on tinting the roof ? I've read that some places won't tint it, some will tint it but do it in two pieces and others do it as a single piece.

    Tesla Model 3 in Australia

    I had one a couple of weeks ago that disappeared and then 5YJ3F7EB4KF4882xx appeared about a week ago. At least I've got something to work towards, the complete lack of information was causing so much anxiety. Seriously, so many emotions over a bloody car. Now to line up a buyer for my existing...

    Tesla Model 3 in Australia

    The impatience got the better of me and I reached out to the delivery advisor for our Model S by email. The reply is both a blessing a curse... "I can see your VIN has been assigned, it’s on a ship arriving for delivery around the end of this month. We’ll be starting to schedule customers on...

    St Leonards is only a service outlet now, no sales, no deliveries. All the deliveries are being done out of Alexandria. You need to go to Martin place for sales.

    Existing owner and close to day 1 reservation Sydneyite here with a red P3-, still nothing <sigh>

    Tesla Model 3 in Australia

    Our Tesla Model S can't go over 11kw and neither can the Model 3. The fastest way to charge is with 3 phase @ 16A. I believe the mobile charger doesn't go over 10A. If you put a flylead on the HPWC and set it for 15A, it'd charge faster, but that looks like a 20A wall plate to me.

    Tesla Model 3 in Australia

    I'm an existing owner, day 1 reservation holder and ordered a P3D- and haven't changed my order either, Vin is 4882xx. I'll be more than peeved if I'm not in the first batch. I was however given a test drive on a private track a couple of weeks ago, which has made things worse and not better...
