    Dash Cam didn't save full 1 hour loop

    Update: I was able to use Disk Drill to recover the lost files - highly recommend for anyone who finds themselves in the same position.

    Dash Cam didn't save full 1 hour loop

    Guessing this is probably a lost cause but I'm trying to figure out at least what went wrong. I was hit by another car on the side and caught it on the dashcam. Luckily I recorded the playback on my phone so I do have a record of it, but not the greatest quality. I thought I had pressed 'save'...

    New notice on screen

    Today when I jumped in my car there was a fairly long notice on the screen but I accidentally closed it before I read it and I have no idea what it said. Can anyone fill me in on what it was? It wasn’t the software updates notice.

    Charge port cover not flush?

    Back in May I was asked to schedule a mobile service appointment for hood latch inspection as apparently they needed to check something. At the appointment I think I recall he also did something with my charge port but it was a while ago so I could be wrong. Washing my car the other day I only...

    Got Model 3 (SR+) Towed, would there be any damage?

    Did no one here actually read this? Multiple times, it states that the car should not be towed with any wheels on the ground. Specifically, it states in big bold caps letters: Warning: TOWING MODEL 3 WITH THE TIRES CONTACTING THE GROUND CAN CAUSE OVERHEATING AND DAMAGE TO THE REAR MOTOR. If...

    Premium Connectivity cost $9.99/month for many Model 3 versions

    I have a LR RWD and also got this email. Unless you were one of the ones that got it as a perk, I think it is going to apply to all configurations. I got my car September 2018 so I've gotten well over 12 months of free Premium Connectivity. Been waiting for them to figure this out and knew it...

    Anyone tint the windshield 50%?

    Yes and I don't regret it.

    AP lane change confusion

    It might help if you elaborated. Does this happen all the time or only sometimes? Does it happen only on one particular area or road or on all roads? Are you trying to do this on freeways or on smaller streets?

    Autopilot understeer/oversteer

    Yes I actually tested the same bit of freeway on AP at 60 and it stays in the lane much better. It leads me to believe that it doesn't compensate for the extra centrifugal (?) force at higher speeds. It didn't appear that not being able to see far enough ahead was an issue, it was identifying...

    Autopilot understeer/oversteer

    I'll have to look next time whether it does this more when it's approaching a curve where visibility of the road up ahead is limited. However, I feel like its a compromise in safety to hug an outside line just to possibly improve visibility. It also wouldn't explain why it overcorrects when...

    Autopilot understeer/oversteer

    Has anyone else noticed their 3 understeering then over-correcting on sharper freeway turns at higher speeds? On certain parts of the 101 freeway in Los Angeles, the curves in the road are fairly windy (for lack of better word). If I have autopilot on with speed set at 70, I find that my Model...

    Is the model 3 too common now?

    I'm in LA and yes, they're pretty common in some areas. I got mine last year before they became too common so had the novelty of feeling 'special' for a little while. Now, I don't let it worry me. I have a wrap and window tint which makes it feel a little unique and at the end of the day, I love...

    Cut throat safety belt

    I'm 5'2 and have no issues. As the above poster suggested, raising the seat might help, which I have done anyway, so I have better visibility.

    Autopilot $3000 :(

    I think they mean on their current account for a car already purchased without AP and FSD. Not a new purchase.
  15. Fair Verona

    Anyone get a receipt of order/purchase for AP or FSD upgrade from last month's sale?

    No, I got both AP and FSD and got no 'receipt' sent, but I have it in my car so it doesn't really bother me.

    Steering wheel lock while in park

    I've notice sometimes in Park, the steering wheel moves freely, and other times, it's really hard to move (locked). I couldn't work out why it would do it sometimes and not other times. The only reason I noticed was because I was trying to play Pole Position with the steering wheel and sometimes...

    Which configuration I wonder? Couldn't find it in the article.

    Blue icon

    I've seen that once on my car when it was cold weather. Stayed for a bit, then went away. As above, I'd say it has something to do with cold battery.

    Do you use pin to drive?

    My main deterrent to using the pin to drive is I feel like it would be a pain if you ever need someone else to drive your car, like a valet, car cleaning etc. You either have to remember go in and turn it off each time, or give them the pin.

    Help Me Decide SR+ vs MR VS LR RWD

    We originally were going to get the SR when the Model 3 was first announced. Didn't want to wait, so got the LR and am soooo happy with that decision. Don't regret it one bit. It makes trip so much easier and if you don't have home charging (like I don't), it makes charging much more manageable...

    POLL: which 1/2 price options did you get and why?

    I'm still very undecided, keep trying to weight the pros and cons and getting nowhere. If they still offered EAP without FSD for say $4k total, I'd jump on it. I want to get the full upgrade, but I guess I'm looking for good reasons why I should get the FSD (with old EAP options) now so I can...

    Can owners that purchased $2K AP confirm if Auto Lane Change is included please?

    Pretty sure it’s intentional that the new AP is like this. They’ve moved a number of EAP features over to FSD to give FSD some immediate value and stripped back EAP to just basic ‘AP’.
  24. Fair Verona

    Can owners that purchased $2K AP confirm if Auto Lane Change is included please?

    I just got the $2k AP and that’s what mine does. Put the signal on and it disengages autostwer but keeps TACC on so you can change lanes. You then have to turn AP back on once lane change is complete or it’ll just stay on TACC.

    Autopilot Functionality Suggestion

    Yes this is what scares me most about the prospect of using NoA. Driving on LA freeways where everyone drives erratically without signals there's no way I'd trust it to handle the craziness of other drivers here.

    POLL: which 1/2 price options did you get and why?

    Having not purchased EAP originally, I took advantage of the $2k AP offer. I understand those who got EAP not wanting to pay $2k for nothing right now, but for those of us who have the new 'reduced' AP, there are some extras you get by buying FSD now, such as automatic lane changes, Navigate on...

    If I purchase AP thru website, how long will it take to become operational

    Last night waiting for the Autpilot Trial window to finish, I got the latest software update which I accepted and it apparently cancelled the AP update. Next morning after the update was finished I got the Autopilot Trial window back and left it alone. Came back out a few hours later and AP was...

    Solicitation for Opinions on Tesla Service and Recent Pricing Changes

    I have only good things to say about Tesla service, from our first test drive, through to delivery and any post-purchase service issues. As a 2018 purchaser I was a little disappointed when the new pricing came out, but this was soon made good by the offer for cheaper AP+FSD (I have since...

    If I purchase AP thru website, how long will it take to become operational

    I got the autopilot trial screen after I came back from the movies. Couldn’t wait in the car park forever so did a hard reboot and it showed the You’re All Set screen but no AP. Hopefully sorts itself out soon. No software update yet but I don’t have a good WiFi connection Edit: After sitting...

    If I purchase AP thru website, how long will it take to become operational

    Purchased PA March 6th, no AP yet and I also haven't received the software update yet either. Option to purchase AP is gone from my account online (FSD available for $3k) but still shows on the car from the Autopilot menu option. I was expecting it to be instant, given that the EAP trial was...

    If you didn't order EAP at $5K, would you buy AP+FSD for $5K now?

    We will definitely be getting the AP for $2k. We weren't prepared to pay $5k at the time for EAP but will probably do the full FSD for $5k now, especially with the tax credit about to hit the bank account.

    Full Tax Credit Pointless

    I think what gets to people is firstly, it's not the same price. When you apply the tax from 2018 vs now, the car is still cheaper. And yes, of course many people were acting out of 'greed'; if you see a chance to legally benefit from something, you can't blame people for wanting to do it. It's...

    Full Tax Credit Pointless

    This - this is the thing that makes me feel annoyed. I want Tesla to survive and make a profit and I don't want any sort of recompense, extra benefit or refund. I just have a little bit of a problem with the way they went about how they used the full tax credit to lure earlier purchases when it...

    Full Tax Credit Pointless

    I'm definitely all for the government giving EV manufacturers some help to compete, but if that's the case, why didn't they just pay the incentive direct to the company for every car sold instead of giving it to the consumer? It gave a false sense of benefit to the consumer.
  39. Fair Verona

    Full Tax Credit Pointless

    It's always nice to feel like you got a good deal. But no, I guess the point I'm trying to make is, Tesla's pricing structure is basically: flat price for the car + whatever the current tax incentive is at time of delivery = current listed price. I don't regret getting my car but I just wish I'd...

    Full Tax Credit Pointless

    I guess my point is not really about paying more (although maybe it is), it's that based on their pricing approach, I feel like the the tax credit is only really of benefit to Tesla and not the buyer.

    Standard interior has black dash trim

    There was another thread where someone was able to purchase a white dash separately for something like $230 from Tesla so I don't see why you couldn't purchase the black one. You might have to wait until more have gone into production but it's worth asking around if that's what you really want.

    Full Tax Credit Pointless

    This isn't to complaint about the price reductions, other than to ask, does anyone else feel like they basically render the tax credits pointless? By Tesla adjusting the prices to reflect the dwindling tax credits, it feels to me like they are the ones getting the most benefit from the tax...

    Seats starting to crack after 2 months

    I think this looks more like color transfer, causing the seats to look cracked due to the deeper crevices in the seat not receiving the color transfer. Cleaning the seats should remove the extra color and the appearance of 'cracks'.

    So I got the free supercharging during the California wildfires. But it looks like I never got switched back to being charged (yet at least). My account still says 'Free Unlimited Supercharging' and I haven't been charged for a supercharge since October last year. Is it just me or did they not...

    Question regarding default Tint Percentages

    My apologies, I stand corrected. I just checked my invoice and turns out I have 50% on the windshield. I do have the side windows tinted as well which does make the cabin overall darker and cooler. Didn't tint the back window because I didn't feel the need.

    Rear Window Tint - Headlights Reflecting off Defroster Lines?

    I got 15% back, 35% front and 50% on windshield.

    Rear Window Tint - Headlights Reflecting off Defroster Lines?

    I only got the sides done and happy with that. Because the rear window is quite high up and there's less visibility that some cars anyway, I really don't find it an issue to not have it tinted.
