    Pic of your Model 3.......RIGHT NOW! [model 3 pictures thread]

    Nice! Looks familiar :) Mine was also pretty immaculate, and came with the mobile charger despite me having placed my original order after the cutoff date. I think that was supposed to end with April orders but my May 10 order still got it for me. Woo!

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    Officially graduated today as well, and all is good as far can I tell. No QC issues that I could find. It was raining a bit when I arrived and had to drive through a horrendous rainstorm in Memphis that turned intersections into rivers I had to ford, but the car did everything beautifully. And...

    Graduation day for me too! On the way now to the DC. Fingers crossed for excellent QC and a smooth delivery process!

    You almost have to wonder if these companies aren’t money launderers. Or maybe I need to watch less Ozark.

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    I sold a Mach E to GMTV last fall and their offer was nutball high, much higher than Carvana or Vroom. The last few months though their offers have been pretty low, even lower than the others. I found another company called Texas Auto Value and they made much more enticing offers. Not sure how...

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    Does NC impose a time limit on that sales tax offset? Here in AR, we have 60 days on either side of purchasing a new car to offset the sales tax with the sale of another car. It’s a pain in the rear to get reimbursed if you have to pay up front but definitely worth making sure to pay attention...

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    Delivery appointment scheduled for tomorrow! Finally got Tesla to confirm the car is at the DC and will be prepped and ready for the appointment. It's weird, a month and a half ago it felt like this would never come, and now that it has it seems to have flown by. But....that could be because I'm...

    I hope you’re right.

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    I asked my SA about the mobile charger kinda hoping against hope, but he confirmed that since my OD was after the April cutoff, I won’t be getting it. Darn.

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    Pick up scheduled for next Friday 8/6! That week is going to crawl. Maybe it’ll be ready earlier. Memphis is a pretty low volume DC so I don’t think I’ll be competing for delivery slots.

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    Hmm, that's interesting. Yes I received the VIN on 7/18, got the text about it leaving the factory on 7/20. Last I heard from my SA, they expected it to hit their lot on 8/2 but that seems like a long transit from CA to TN. Maybe not though. If it happens similar to your situation, I should...

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    Seeing your post has me super excited! My OD was a few days after yours and my switch to a M3P was also right around the same time. I also happened to order the same spec and I’m in the same general region of the country. Maybe this portends a slightly sooner delivery than I’m expecting!

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    I doubt you'd be waiting until December. Give it some time and you'll probably see the EDD shift upward. I had a LR on order and the EDD kept pushing back. I seriously considered buying a lightly used '22, but their prices were the same as the performance. So I just switched to the P and my EDD...

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    That would be a real shame. And I was so close to going with red damnit…

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    So who’s getting the red/black M3P that has the distinction of being the 2 millionth car Tesla has produced? Wonder if they’re going to release the VIN or let the new owner know somehow? Also, that car better have the best QC ever! 😂
  16. S

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    I also had a weird EDD update, from 8/4-8/8 to now 8/1-8/7. The day before this change, my SA told me they expected the car to arrive on 8/2 so I’m guessing that pushed up a bit and it may arrive a little earlier than they were expecting. Whatever, just can’t wait to see it!

    2022 Q2 production Model 3 missing matrix headlights?

    They all ended up having the matrix lights since they were earlier ‘22 cars. Just couldn’t justify spending the same for a used LR that I would for a new P.

    2022 Q2 production Model 3 missing matrix headlights?

    Before I decided to go ahead and get a new Tesla, I was looking at ‘22 M3 LRs and I specifically asked dealers to send me pictures of the headlights for this exact purpose. I’m getting an M3P so it’s no longer a concern (and the M3P is the same price or cheaper than used LRs I was considering!)...

    UGH - The smell of it. [AC Smell]

    I’ll be receiving my M3P sometime in the next couple of weeks and I’m *really* hoping I luck out with this issue. I wonder if this is why some companies make scent-infused wooden strips to slip down in the HVAC blade opening?
  20. S

    UGH - The smell of it. [AC Smell]

    Is it possible this smell comes from some kind of VOC being emitted from some of the hardware itself? Since it seems to be such a common occurrence with Model 3s and Ys, and sometimes the "fix" only lasts a short time, to me that almost suggests more of a chemical rather than a biological...

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    I really hope my delivery window holds or pushes forward. I recently sold a car for $60k, and here in my state, as long as I get another within 60 days, I will only pay sales tax on the difference. That's the difference of 6.5% of $4400 versus 6.5% of $64,440 as long as I get whatever by Aug 19...

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    Actually got an email notice. No text or anything yet, but the email came through pretty late last night, about 9 pm CST. I imagine I'll be hearing from my SA soon. I'm actually kind of surprised to get a VIN and a delivery window that's more than two weeks from now. Wonder if that'll scooch...

    As bog standard as a M3P can get....white, black interior, no FSD or EAP.

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    How far ahead of delivery should I add proof of delivery? And I assume I can wait until I go to take delivery to submit final payment?

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    Just got the VIN notice as well! New EDD 8/4-8/8.

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    Can’t blame you really. I lusted after the E92 M3 for years. Never pulled the trigger. Now I’m waiting to take delivery of a car that is faster, cheaper to run and maintain, and exponentially more reliable.
  28. S

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    And that fuel bill for the *other* M3 is going to sting a bit.

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    Ugh, damn Tesla for calling and texting, getting my hopes up momentarily just to ask if I had a trade in. Texting back saying no and asking if this means a delivery is imminent was met with referencing the EDD I see. Boo!

    Welp finally happened to me…windshield stress crack

    Yikes! Considering your location, is this potentially just temperature related? It gets pretty warm here in AR as well...

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    My EDD made a slightly odd move overnight. I was sitting at a two week window, and now it moved forward to be just shy of two weeks. Good news that it's narrowing, or a bad sign of an impending push back?
  32. S

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    This gives me a lot of hope for some movement soon! You and I have similar ODs, similar switches to M3P times, and are in similar regions of the country.

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    Curious if anyone has recently switched from LR to P, then back to LR? What did it do to your EDD? I have no current plans to do this. I switched from LR to P once it became apparent that I was likely going to miss out on a sales tax incentive my state offers for selling my previous car. Here...

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    That's been a temptation for me as well. If I can't take delivery by Aug 19, I can't take advantage of my state's sales tax credit and it would effectively add another $4k+ to the total cost of the car. If it starts getting close to that, it'll be really tempting to look at used.

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    Well poo, EDD updated this morning and pushed the window back a week.

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    How are you all speaking directly with your SA before getting your VIN? I've only been able to call the general Tesla Customer Service number to speak in real time to a live human, and that usually requires a 15-20 min hold time. I have been able to send text messages to the number that...

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    What kills me is I had a ‘22 XC40 Recharge Ultimate and got what I thought was a ridiculous purchase offer on it from Texas Auto Value. Fearing it’s value would potentially go down before my M3P showed up, I went ahead and sold it, thinking eh, I have transportation when I need it in the...

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    I’m driving a bog standard ‘99 F150 single cab with 175k mi while I wait for my M3P. It has AC, but only when it’s moving. Recent heat index warnings have made for some less than comfy drives around town. Not to mention paying for gas. The Tesla will be a welcome relief in sooooo many ways.

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    And now for maybe a noob question: what is the significance of the two-week EDD window?

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    A word of caution to any owners of white interior cars thinking about ultra dark tinting: a friend of mine had his white interior car tinted to around 15% all around, and I personally found his car very difficult to drive in certain lighting conditions because of the glare from the white dash...

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    That really sucks. I got approval on a pre-approved draft from PenFed on Thursday June 30, and received it the following Wednesday. I was expecting the worst after reading your posts and hearing their “we don’t do expedited delivery any more” line, but I hoped for the best and thankfully it came...

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    And we wonder why Tesla keeps getting away with poor QC.... I mean, I'd probably do the same thing, especially after waiting for a couple of months in my case. We only have ourselves to blame.

    EDD is tightening up! Hoping that's a good sign...

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    Re: checking the source code Any idea how much sooner the VIN shows in the code before either showing on the page or being contacted by Tesla? I installed that Tesla VIN checker and have been curious how much, if any, of a heads up I would get from it.
  45. S

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    Yikes! I just got approved on a draft from PenFed but my EDD window currently opens on 7/23. Hoping I have time to get it before the car arrives! PenFed was very upfront with me saying they don’t do expedited mail any more and to allow 7-10 business days for the check to arrive. Sounds like...

    That absolutely sucks. But, I love seeing photos of what I’m getting in (hopefully) a few weeks.

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    Those of you who’ve picked up your cars recently, are they model year 22s? I assume so. Not sure when Teslas tend to switch from one model year to another.

    Woke up this morning to the first EDD change since switching to a P, and in face the first EDD change in several weeks.

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    Hopefully it's just the forum effect, but are the M3Ps being delivered with more QC issues than the LRs or SRs? Going to ask the question that has been beating this dead horse to a pulp, but for the most expensive version of this car.....you'd think.....yet we keep buying them.
