    Yeah, I'm meeting with the local cluster reps on Friday so hopefully we can be all friendly and open-minded...

    HOA Charger Installation Requirements

    Thanks for the info @NormVA, I'm surprised it was so hard given Virginia has the Right to Charge law that bars them from blocking people from installing chargers even if they live in a condo. I was hoping it would be closer to $2k all up, I bet I'll need a new electrical box too which will add...

    HOA Charger Installation Requirements

    I'm actually about to move into a Reston townhouse and am in the exact same situation. May I ask how much it cost you, specifically the installation? I think I might go for a Clipper Creek charger instead of a Tesla charger though.

    SunTek/Ultra Defense Paint Protection Film (PPF) Group Buy in NOVA/DC - TLC Auto Detail

    It's been brought to my attention that my posts may have been a little harsh, which is fair. There were a lot of small issues that I didn't bother to bring to Dave's attention but then aired here on the forums and that wasn't really fair on him since he couldn't respond. The small things, I...

    SunTek/Ultra Defense Paint Protection Film (PPF) Group Buy in NOVA/DC - TLC Auto Detail

    Yeah, I'm learning to accept it. I'm just a perfectionist and given I paid $9k all up (tinting, wrap, etc.) I was expecting a flawless finish. I'm just going to wait and see if it lifts. I do think it would have held better if it had remained garaged (I don't have access to one) though it was...

    SunTek/Ultra Defense Paint Protection Film (PPF) Group Buy in NOVA/DC - TLC Auto Detail

    I agree that most of the results that @DCEV got were thanks to him being very clear with his expectations, you'd most likely get similar results if you made him sign an agreement. I'm kicking myself for just trusting what he said without pushing harder. Thinking about it though, it annoys me...

    SunTek/Ultra Defense Paint Protection Film (PPF) Group Buy in NOVA/DC - TLC Auto Detail

    Well, I got my car back (after a week longer than they said) and I'm not terribly impressed. I'm torn between just giving up and being happy with the way it is or pushing for a full re-wrap. It looks good unless you look at it closely and I'm tempted to accept "good enough" but it pains me to...

    SunTek/Ultra Defense Paint Protection Film (PPF) Group Buy in NOVA/DC - TLC Auto Detail

    Dropped it off, they're pretty busy so it might be ready for pickup early next week. Dave was confident they could sort out the lifting without re-applying so we'll see. The de-chroming around the mirror will also be looked at, I pointed out that when the mirrors fold back, you can see some...

    SunTek/Ultra Defense Paint Protection Film (PPF) Group Buy in NOVA/DC - TLC Auto Detail

    I'll give them a chance to fix it first and then post the results. I'm taking it in tomorrow morning and I'm still kind of hoping they'll just take the time to redo it entirely. I suspect I had a new guy do my wrap rather than the guy DCEV had (John Perdue) and hopefully when Dave sees how it's...

    SunTek/Ultra Defense Paint Protection Film (PPF) Group Buy in NOVA/DC - TLC Auto Detail

    They should be able to see it this week. I'll be taking it in Wed or Thu morning. I'm still wondering if they'll be able to trim it or will have to re-do it. Some of the edges have peeled off all the way around the edge so if they trimmed it, the edge of the film would be on the top of the panel.

    SunTek/Ultra Defense Paint Protection Film (PPF) Group Buy in NOVA/DC - TLC Auto Detail

    Not quite yet, might be next week. The film installer is out this week and possibly longer. They did offer to let me bring it in for a wash though but I figure I'll wait to do it all at once. It's getting a regular wash in the storms anyway (and then getting gunked up with pollen and tree debris...)

    SunTek/Ultra Defense Paint Protection Film (PPF) Group Buy in NOVA/DC - TLC Auto Detail

    Nice! Better start talking to them now, they're pretty busy and working shorter days so you'll want to get booked in. I got an email back today saying they're full up this week so I'll take it in next week.
  13. P

    SunTek/Ultra Defense Paint Protection Film (PPF) Group Buy in NOVA/DC - TLC Auto Detail

    Yup, they told me to bring it in after a couple of weeks or so. I emailed them this week to book it in but no response yet. I assume they're still busy/understaffed.

    SunTek/Ultra Defense Paint Protection Film (PPF) Group Buy in NOVA/DC - TLC Auto Detail

    @DCEV, did you find the edges lifting soon after getting it? Dave said it's normal and he's going to have to trim it and it's because Tesla don't do the clear coat all the way around the edges. I was wondering if you had a similar experience at the beginning (because there are a lot of lifted...

    Supercharger - Vienna, VA

    Actually ended up driving past there today, unexpectedly. Lots of activity, lots of busy workers. Didn't get to see the chargers and what stage they're at but the building is coming along, glass is in and outer brick decorative surface is almost complete.

    Supercharger - Vienna, VA

    I wonder if this has been delayed under the current conditions.

    SunTek/Ultra Defense Paint Protection Film (PPF) Group Buy in NOVA/DC - TLC Auto Detail

    I'll hold off on any close-ups until Dave's had a chance to sort them out. He said that they often have a problem with edges because Tesla doesn't clear coat all the way around and as for the vinyl de-chroming, mirrors are simply tricky beasts so they'll try to fix that. Sorry for the close...

    SunTek/Ultra Defense Paint Protection Film (PPF) Group Buy in NOVA/DC - TLC Auto Detail

    Got my car back on Monday but I'm holding off on giving a more detailed review. Obviously circumstances are tough right now so I don't think I got the ideal service (understaffed because he takes care of his people which I highly approve of) and it looks like some things were rushed or not done...

    It's currently with Dave, there are some delays with staff working reduced shifts to look after their families. It sounds like he takes good care of his team.

    Jeda wireless charger phone height clearance?

    Drat, guess I'll be laying it in landscape. Thanks for letting me know!

    Jeda wireless charger phone height clearance?

    I'll see how I go. I was considering just getting a wrap for my phone instead of a case anyway. That, or carve a little out of the bottom lip of the Jeda charger.

    Jeda wireless charger phone height clearance?

    Thanks! I've now got both the charger and phone and by next Friday I should have the car so I'll post my results.

    Tesla loan comparison spreadsheet - auto updates hourly

    You'd definitely have to match the loan term as well. The rates vary depending on the length of the term so it wouldn't work to compare a low-rate short-term loan with a long-term loan.

    Wiki Model 3 Order Tracking Spreadsheet

    I think it depends on the bank Tesla are going with. I was told I'd get a check for the difference, they were funding the loan through Wells Fargo. Was an awful rate so I went with Next Mark (formerly Fairfax County Credit Union), 2.99 compared to 4.67.

    I never got any response from my SA so I just called up the DC and asked them. Got a lot done through helpful people there.

    Unfortunately, they require another appointment for the Homelink. Seems silly but that's just how they do it.

    LR AWD Waiting Room

    Nope, VIN in source is the first appearance. Tesla definitely doesn't get in contact with lenders except for the bank that they do their own loans for. I had that same problem, held up one of my applications for a while but they didn't end up being my best offer anyway.

    What did you name your Tesla?

    DarkMatter (MSM with dechroming and tinting). I know it sounds douchey but the place I work at actually helped prove the existence of dark matter so it's somewhat legit.

    LR AWD Waiting Room

    If you're picking up at Tyco, you can do what I did and make a tentative booking for a pickup. The guy I spoke to said they won't be certain of the delivery date until they load it onto the train about a week before it arrives. He gave me a broad estimate and I booked in for Friday the 13th...

    SunTek/Ultra Defense Paint Protection Film (PPF) Group Buy in NOVA/DC - TLC Auto Detail

    Will do! My experience so far has been great with plenty of flexibility with Tesla's ever-changing delivery dates and my own financial position (wedding coming up...) Dave has been really friendly and understanding, I'm looking forward to seeing what he can do!

    Jeda wireless charger phone height clearance?

    Can someone who bought the wireless charger from Jeda measure the height available? I've pre-ordered a Samsung S20 Ultra and that's a pretty tall boy..

    LR AWD Waiting Room

    Same specs? I'm sure yours won't be much longer. I'm now wondering if I should wait for word from them to book the pickup or just call them and tell them I "hacked" the VIN from their page and want to book a delivery date.

    SunTek/Ultra Defense Paint Protection Film (PPF) Group Buy in NOVA/DC - TLC Auto Detail

    Will do! I'm booked in for March 15th but it really depends on when it gets delivered. I'm going to drive it straight over. I just bought cheap $17 ones off Amazon, the small ones that look like the ones Tesla is handing out in some places. They're very stiff and I'm a little worried they'll...

    Ambiguous Text from Tesla...how much longer until delivery?

    I got that same text last week. This week I got a new text saying they expect it'll be "ready for delivery" in 3 - 5 weeks. I'm not sure if that means it'll be ready for delivery from the factory (so same as "built") or ready for delivery from my designated pick-up point.
  42. P

    Wiki Model 3 Order Tracking Spreadsheet

    Do you think "ready for delivery" means it's ready to be picked up or that it's ready to leave the factory?

    Wiki Model 3 Order Tracking Spreadsheet

    It's funny hearing some of you getting the opposite of what I'm getting. "Built in 2 weeks" last week and now "ready for delivery in 3 - 5 weeks" this week. Makes me wonder if this texting bot is spinning a wheel and throwing darts, haha!
  44. P

    Wiki Model 3 Order Tracking Spreadsheet

    I think it's just delays. I got "Delivery timing update - we now expect... built in the next 2 weeks" last week and then "we now expect your car to be ready for delivery 3 - 5 weeks from today" this week. Got a little optimistic then realized "ready for delivery" could mean the same thing as...

    My SA thankfully told me to select the "cash" option even if I did apply for a Tesla loan later on. He knew that it would hold things up.

    Fantastic! I've been chatting with Dave (great guy) and I'm booked in for full PPF, ceramic coating, tinting, dechroming, center console wrap, and even some small extras like applying a screen protector and mudflaps at no extra cost! If he does as good a job as he did with yours, I'll definitely...

    LR AWD Waiting Room

    Yeah, I imagine the demand is higher for white since it's the 'free' color and people who are wrapping it would just use a different color wrap on top anyway (so my SA advised).

    LR AWD Midnight Silver/Black 18" Aero. Did you order in-store and fill out all the info then and there?
