    Why doesn't the charging port unlock?

    I just push my rear door handle in about halfway to not trigger the open but it does wake the car up and allows an unlock.

    Window rolls down when rolled up?

    We just left on another trip and it appears it has fixed itself.

    Window rolls down when rolled up?

    I tried that yesterday but was leaving in a hurry. I'll give it a shot again today. Thanks.

    Window rolls down when rolled up?

    My car updated to 39.7 a couple of days ago and this may be completely unrelated but now when I roll my window up on the passenger side and it gets to the top, it rolls itself about halfway down. I have to manually tap the switch to roll it up in small increments until it meets the seal and...

    Rear Defrost Line Damaged

    My tint installed told me he could do it in one piece as well but when I arrived he did it in two but knocked the rear defroster connection off. I posted a thread about it since I'm unsure of any damage possibly caused.

    Model 3 rear window defroster damaged by tint installer

    Picture attached. Got my car back from the rear glass being tinted yesterday and noticed the black vinyl was knocked off this area. Assuming the wires aren't broken from this area, does anyone know what would be best to reattach it?

    Carwash Method?

    Foam cannon on a pressure washer. Two buckets and a microfiber mitt. Spray wax while drying after most of the water has been blown off with a leaf blower. 1st wash was this morning and it looks amazing.

    My center console

    I have a 3d printer, I have some PETG, but I'm not sure how it would hold up in this Louisiana heat but would love to give it a try.

    Texas Hold Up!

    I came here to tell you the exact same thing. My glovebox does not budge and the right plastic cover of my dash was in the floorboard whenever I first got in the car. Next time when I'm not in as big of a hurry I will hang out a little more. We supercharged in Shreveport and got a bite to...

    Texas Hold Up!

    I actually tried to talk to them but no one answered the phone yesterday evening or this morning so if it is delivered to me with less of a charge I will just hit up the supercharger in Lindale. I should have the car in 2 hours.

    Texas Hold Up!

    Are you staying for the introduction to the car thing or just grabbing it and leaving?
  13. ryanakata

    Texas Hold Up!

    I'm headed back to West Monroe Louisiana and completely did not think about asking them to range charge it. I would assume I have enough charge to hit the Lindale supercharger.

    Texas Hold Up!

    It's up to your ISA to process that. I had mine back within 20 minutes while all other items were not complete.

    Texas Hold Up!

    I would recommend while you wait you go ahead and get an offer from vroom.com They offered me a good bit more and I ended up using them rather than the Tesla trade-in offer.

    Texas Hold Up!

    I already have 2 USB C cables but will gladly trade you one of the ones that come with the car. I don't plan on sticking around for the orientation unless persuaded otherwise. I plan to grab and go if I can. See that display pic on my post? That's me and my wife. We will be there with our...

    Texas Hold Up!

    They called me today, confirmed the bumpers match and moved me up by a week. Taking delivery at 11am on Saturday. Yay.
  18. ryanakata

    Texas Hold Up!

    I may call them tomorrow and see if I can move mine to earlier in the week when a hotel won't cost me an arm and a leg. Mine still is 1 week and a couple days out but I would imagine it should hopefully be there by tomorrow?

    CHAdeMo adapter , $450 , seriously ?? Why so expensive

    I'd actually be interested in seeing a tear down of one of those. I doubt anyone has the money that they would be willing to use for the sake of tearing one apart but if yours ends up not working or having issues, I'd throw a couple of dollars your way for a tear down.
  20. ryanakata

    Texas Hold Up!

    Well hohow about that. I'd ask whoever confirms the appointment with me to take a look but I doubt they look until it's on site.

    Texas Hold Up!

    My delivery is scheduled for Friday next week at the Dallas Cedar Springs road location and if anyone else there would like to look for my car and see if it has the bumper mismatch issue or any other glaring issues while you're there picking up yours that could save me a night at a hotel.

    My Model 3 Got Wrecked Today :(

    That is exactly what I expected. While that Facebook post was hard to read, it provided to what I would assume would be enough to go after the camera footage and go for criminal charges?

    VIN Assignment

    I wouldn't sweat it. There's been people with similar VINs who still got the new seats. I have my fingers crossed for my delivery coming up.

    Let's talk financing rates

    I'm from Louisiana and we can't take delivery in the state so I have to ship it to Texas but due to a law there the car has to be paid for before it can leave Fremont. FPCU answered my questions within the hour and had me a check shipped via FedEx to Tesla within 30 minutes of the call setting...

    Rate I was offered from tesla...

    They do not offer a 72 month for electric vehicles. I had an 843 and got the "promo" rate of 2.24%.

    VIN Assignment

    Mine did not work until the edit button was gone. Indicating I can no longer make changes and I've been assigned a car.

    Rate I was offered from tesla...

    If you're a member of any other credit union then you qualify. I was a member of PenFed, Alliant, a local one here in my city. If you aren't a member of one just join something and then sign up with them. They did want a statement for proof though.

    Let's talk financing rates

    I applied and was approved with Lightstream but could not get them to rate match nor could I get anyone to answer questions about a Texas delivery. Hence I went with FPCU. Poor customer service was not worth it to me.
  29. ryanakata

    Rate I was offered from tesla...

    I put $10,000 down along with the $3,500 already paid. Financed $44,000. I could have financed less but that rate was so good .

    Rate I was offered from tesla...

    FPCU is still offering 2.24% for 60 months. I closed with them today and highly recommend them.

    FPCU

    Small update. My loan application was transferred from Ryan to Haley. It could not have went any smoother. I got a call from Chris that said it was ready. I shot him the info. The next day I got my final MVPA and emailed it to Haley. Check was overnighted via FedEx and they provided me a...

    Texas Hold Up!

    Just confirmed my delivery date for June 8th at 2 p.m. I could have done June 7th but have too much going on at work so I will just leave the next morning and head to Dallas. Much sooner than expected .
  33. ryanakata

    Texas Hold Up!

    Once you have your final MVPA and all of the car has been paid for, do you just show up to like the car and leave or is there more paperwork? My car was paid for in full yesterday and now I'm just waiting to get a firm delivery date.
  34. ryanakata

    How many days before delivery did you receive your MVPA?

    Same thing I did, was incredibly easy and then a FedEx package showed up with registration and other DMV related papers that I returned today. If you have your financing all sorted out and know what bank you are using, they should skip the proforma and go straight to the final, or at least they...

    How many days before delivery did you receive your MVPA?

    I received mine yesterday and have no idea when my delivery date is. However I'm taking delivery in Texas which does change things since the car has to be paid for before it can leave Fremont.

    Texas Hold Up!

    I just had my contract delivered electronically, signed and returned it. Assuming my bank may cut the check for the remainder tomorrow and my ACH pull goes fine tonight then I'm hoping they actually ship the car out earlier than expected. A June 5th delivery would be awesome for me but not...

    Texas Hold Up!

    Chris came back from being off on Monday and shot me an email saying that as long as my bank gets him the money by the 29th then the car should be delivered within 14 days after that and I should be able to pick it up in mid-June. I ended up replying to him with one question and he ended up...

    VIN Assignment

    You're lucky. My ISA is great but our emails back and forth happen about once a week and that is he sends me something and I reply and then he replies a week later. I know they are swamped but this is tough.
  39. ryanakata

    VIN Assignment

    I understand. I was supposed to take delivery May 15th so I feel your pain.
  40. ryanakata

    VIN Assignment

    At least you have a delivery date! I consider that progress.
  41. ryanakata

    Texas Hold Up!

    I didn't get that far with my last VIN. It came time to send the funds and he called back before sending the mvpa to let me know something was wrong with the car. I'll be calling up my bank tomorrow morning to hopefully have everything ready to go the second Chris calls back to get the ball...

    Texas Hold Up!

    That worked for me. Confirmed my suspicions about the edit button disappearing. 185xx. Hopefully I get the call tomorrow so I can get this thing paid for it and get it on the way to the Dallas service center.
  43. ryanakata

    VIN Assignment

    I can confirm this is true. The edit button disappeared on Saturday and I just happened to try this method today and saw that I was assigned a new vin. 185XX.

    VIN Assignment

    I have had all steps completed since the 13th. Whenever there was news about an edit button showing up I went and checked and did have it. I even clicked it last week debating to change colors but I did not. I went to click it last night and it was no longer there despite all steps being...

    VIN Assignment

    Whil that does suck for you, this almost confirms that I've been assigned one. I had a VIN prior but had to get a new one due to an issue with the car. It has been 37 days so if I got a new one already then I'm extremely impressed.

    Powder Coating Calipers

    Something about a wrapped caliper doesn't settle well with me. I read up on it, and I know we rarely heavily use the brakes but it still feels odd.

    $78k PM3 AWD

    The BMW M3 technically I'd a 3 series which falls in the same category as a 328i. The performance version was never meant to be affordable, but the $35,000 base model is. It makes sense to me as well as releasing the more expensive options first. Without incentives, $40k for a base AWD...
  48. ryanakata

    VIN Assignment

    My edit design button is gone as well. I'd live to think that means I now have a VIN but we will see. I didn't need the AWD but I was going to see if the spoiler was an option.

    Found a LOT of Model 3's in a Tesla lot - Pictures inside

    Until you come here on a Friday and remember pictures are only posted Mon-Thurs. :(

    Texas Hold Up!

    I'm actually not bitter about mine being delayed either. The loan situation does suck but another inquiry isn't the end of the world. I work from home though, which mean I do not need a car 90% of the time and when I do we can rearrange our plans to make do. The positive is the more time that...
