    Washington State: Model S Plaid/LR waiting room

    Having used FSD beta for about a week, I’d say that it’s gonna be several years before I get comfortable relying on this tech. It’s basically overly confident in areas where it shouldn’t be and extremely indecisive in situations where confidence is critical. I don’t think I’ve gone 1 min without...

    Washington State: Model S Plaid/LR waiting room

    I got approved earlier this week but my score was a 93. I wasn’t expecting to get approved and just completely forgot about the score for the last 3 months. I do have to say that FSD is a bit nerve racking. Making turns at intersections are so slow and choppy.

    I can anyone is interested or sees a same issue

    Door handles keep going in/out

    This recently started happening to me as well. Strangely it’s only on the right side of the car and it even happens when the car is in park and I’m sitting in it. Perhaps it has something to do with recent software updates?

    Model S Technical / Mechanical Issues

    Hoping someone can help with this. I started having some random issues with the right door handles this week where they present themselves randomly while the car in in park. Today I sat in the car (drivers seat) with YouTube running and saw that the right door handles (both passenger and rear)...

    Washington State: Model S Plaid/LR waiting room

    I think the question is more what “can you do”. Option 1: cancel and reorder now - I wouldn’t do this. Option 2: change your vacation dates: seeing how the delivery dates will most likely change again, I would not recommend it. Option 3: stick with it. My delivery dates changed like 25 times...

    Just saw that the Tesla model s mudflaps are available through the app again. I know there’s been some comments about it scraping the ground, but better than nothing?

    Washington State: Model S Plaid/LR waiting room

    I seem have this issue where my side mirror (passenger side) always points in some weird direction, especially if the auto tilt is enabled. It rarely goes back to the profile settings and I have to touch the profile name again for it to reset properly. Is that a known issue? I put this into...

    Washington State: Model S Plaid/LR waiting room

    I’m curious how you are doing this since I didn’t really understand it when it tried to use the feature. I see two options for summon: 1) summon to yourself and 2) summon to a target. Are you setting it to go to the target? Also, there’s an option within the car to not require holding down the...

    Washington State: Model S Plaid/LR waiting room

    Yeah I think this makes sense. I think I’m at the point where getting the actual FSD isn’t worth the hassle of trying to get a good score that caters to Tesla standards. I do have to keep an eye on what autopilot does on the local roads. And like you said, I interrupt it relatively frequently to...

    Washington State: Model S Plaid/LR waiting room

    I actually get most of the dings on a regular road with autopilot, not on the freeway. I did get one hard braking issue with autopilot in the freeway but then resolved that by changing the cruise distance to 4 or 5. Almost all of the issues are from some sort of hard braking, mostly when using...

    Washington State: Model S Plaid/LR waiting room

    I gave up on the safety score. It dings you even if Auto Pilot does some wonky phantom braking or when it can’t anticipate a problem coming. After several weeks of enabling, I found that almost all of my “red” marks came from instances where autopilot was engaged. If you want the beta FSD, I’d...

    Washington State: Model S Plaid/LR waiting room

    Adding a few pics after a quick wash. Front and back mats are from Tesla, trunk is from Tesmanian. Overall a great looking car with very minimal paint issues. Again the only big issue is with some of the panel alignment and also the rear quarter panel where it houses the tail light, which...

    2021+ Model S and Model S Plaid Refresh Issues Thread

    Literally sat in the car and stared at it for a bit. There’s no specific pattern that I can see but it flickers periodically. I recorded it so hopefully the technician can see what I’m talking about when I take it in for the other cosmetic fixes

    This happens on my recently delivered Model S. I have no idea if this is normal or not.

    Was looking through the forum to see if I could find something about intermittent “flashing” of the yoke buttons. Is that normal?

    Washington State: Model S Plaid/LR waiting room

    I accepted delivery on Jan 31 after waiting over 8 months for the car. I’ll provide more details with pics soon but here are my general thoughts: 1. I love the car, the features, and the performance. There’s none like it that I’ve ever driven but that doesn’t say much because I haven’t driven...

    Were yours the pirelli tires? My 19s came with Continental ProContact RX, all SA season.

    Washington State: Model S Plaid/LR waiting room

    Looks like I need to file all cosmetic issues within 24 hours and unfortunately I have several. Does anyone know if I’m supposed to just submit them all as a list in one service request or is there a way to make multiple? It’s a royal pain to do this via the app.

    Washington State: Model S Plaid/LR waiting room

    @Buggybug Did you pay before they arrived at your home? I know that there are people who are adamant in not paying before seeing the car, but how does this work for At Home Delivery?

    Washington State: Model S Plaid/LR waiting room

    Doubtful, I saw a plaid as well as a few LR with 21’s. I just don’t see mine. I was really hoping to get to see it before delivery tomorrow. Guess I’ll have to wait.

    Washington State: Model S Plaid/LR waiting room

    Strangely, it’s not at either that I could see. I happened to be around that neighborhood and didn’t see an MSLR in my config sitting at that lot or at the SC lot. I wonder where it could be…..

    Washington State: Model S Plaid/LR waiting room

    Just like you said, I finally got a text and VM to confirm delivery for tomorrow. I called the Tesla SC and they couldn’t tell me which location the car was at other than “it’s in Bellevue”. I want to go take a look at it since I won’t have that luxury when they drop it off at my place.

    Washington State: Model S Plaid/LR waiting room

    @Buggybug I’m unfortunately out of town this entire week. I’m still scheduled for this coming Monday but haven’t received a word about payment or anything of the sort. Should I be concerned? Also, how was your delivery?

    2021+ Model S Refresh - white interior thread

    Completeness of profile is probably a factor, but I don’t know that you should believe this statement about “now prioritizes by order date and not the completeness of your profile” since I don’t think these have anything to do with each other. Said differently, they weren’t prioritizing by order...

    RN1149 and earlier, still waiting group!

    I agree with your disagreement. I don't think they do it with malicious intent but simply don't go out of their way to prioritize older orders. I'm sure it gets even more difficult for the business to do that around quarter end. I'm not saying it's the right thing to do for customers but then...

    Washington State: Model S Plaid/LR waiting room

    yeah, that makes no sense. They left me a VM saying that they pushed out the delivery by a week to 1/28. I wouldn't have been able to do a 1/26 or any delivery next week because it just happens to be the one week when I'm out. What's confusing to me is that its the same exact config as yours...

    Washington State: Model S Plaid/LR waiting room

    @Buggybug Do you have an update on your delivery? I just called the SC and they told me that my car hasn't left California yet. I have no idea why. The birth date is actually 1/13 - originally scheduled for delivery on 1/21, which was pushed back to 1/31. Strange that it's just sitting there.

    Washington State: Model S Plaid/LR waiting room

    Thanks for the info on the AS tires. I was wondering about that since WA apparently has no infrastructure to address snow on the roads. Snowmaggedon is terrible, especially with summer tires. I keep calling the service center that's closest to me, which apparently doesn't do pickups, so I'm...

    That’s a hefty long wait. Did you make adjustments to your order at any point in time?

    Someone here was talking about a Touchless Car Wash in the area. I've been incredibly careful with car washes because I'm just terribly picky about certain things. I've used the 2 bucket hand wash method for several years on my current car and am just about getting ready to sell it as I get...

    Washington State: Model S Plaid/LR waiting room

    Sorry to hear and I totally get the frustration. I thought getting a VIN would solve my frustration but I'm now in another state of anxiety because of the delivery delays. On a positive note, my EDD changed in a very similar way where the range remained consistent but kept getting pushed out a...

    I ended up buying the Tesmanian one for the trunk, frunk, and the cargo portion. Slightly different design but the fold is a necessity.

    Washington State: Model S Plaid/LR waiting room

    In true Tesla form, my delivery has been delayed due to some sort of transit issue despite the great weather. Pushed out a week which I can’t do because I’ll be out of town, so now it’s Jan 31.

    Washington State: Model S Plaid/LR waiting room

    Thanks! Purchased! Personally, I think these are a bit less noisy compared to the 3D Max ones. I wish they had the cargo ones with an actual fold. I have no idea why they didn’t have whoever made them include it in the design.

    Yours has to be coming up soon too, seeing how it’s the same config as mine and only a month after me. Hope you get one assigned in the next few days.

    Anyone here get after market floor/cargo mats? If so, which one? I also can’t tell if the 3D Max Floor mats are supposed to fit the new MS. There are a bunch of posts spread all over the place across this site about recommended accessories and I can’t seem to pinpoint which thread to search to...

    Scheduled my at home delivery for next weekend and am patiently waiting for the day to come. For those here that are waiting on their first Tesla (like me), here’s how it’s progressed thus far: - Last night I refreshed the App and saw 2 things change - 1) the EDD suddenly turned into a 4 day...

    Washington State: Model S Plaid/LR waiting room

    There’s almost 0 chance that I will reject it, unless there’s something like a bumper, door, or seat that’s missing. I’m not tied that much to paint perfection and don’t plan on wrapping or getting PPF either, so I guess I should be good. I spent too much time over the years striving to...

    Washington State: Model S Plaid/LR waiting room

    Just an interesting note: About a month ago, I called the Bellevue SC and someone there told me that he sees that my car is scheduled for arrival at the SC on Jan 16th. I don’t know what he was looking at or who he was, but 6 different people after him couldn’t tell me anything about any date...

    Just refreshed for the 200th time today and bam! VIN assigned! NF467. The messages on the app has changed abs now says my insurance needs updating. Lol

    But way shorter range! This is good news I think.

    Washington State: Model S Plaid/LR waiting room

    Still sitting at Jan 16-26 at this point. Shortest window other than the ridiculous 12/30-12/31 one that I got back in early Dec, so I’m hopeful for a VIN in a few days.
