    Replaced steering wheel, error, seller says I need to update?

    I was trying to replace my steering wheel before returning my lease because they are gonna charge $1k. I found a lightly used one on eBay, and tried to install it. I got an error, something about the steering wheel buttons and horn being unavailable. I asked the seller and he said I need to...

    Good car seat protector that doesn’t stain white seats?

    Anyone find a good one that doesn’t stain the seats? I’m talking about ones that go across the whole back seat area, to protect from dog paws too. Everything I look at has black anti slip on the back.

    Dog seat protector that doesn’t stain white seats?

    Has anyone found one that doesn’t have the non-slip rubber backing? Every product with the backing has reviews showing it rubbing off on the white seats and creating permanent stains.

    Auto steer isn’t slowing down in time.. (M3)

    For the most part, the auto steer feature has been amazing. It sometimes gets a bit close to an edge, but overall, solid. But yesterday on the freeway, I had 7 cars lengths as my distance setting, and traffic suddenly cleared up. Once my car was up to 70mph, I noticed the traffic building up...

    Can’t take delivery out of state?

    Four months ago I was able to buy an existing inventory order from out of state with no issue - I paid a delivery fee and that was it. Fast forward to last week, I grabbed an order in Boston (I’m in CA), got a messaging confirming everything, but then got a call from Tesla in Boston saying they...

    Mobile Connector no longer included with new cars [posted 04/16/2022 - Tesla confirms adapter included with cars ordered before 04/17/22]

    Wait just checking here.. my father in law ordered a M3 in the 20th, and didn’t know about this. He has no supercharger stations near his house - he was gonna use his 240v connector from his laundry area. He is worried now and says the adapters aren’t available on the site. Are Tesla really not...

    Delivery / Service Issues (panel gaps, delivery delays / issues / Service problems etc)

    Very confused about my situation. I picked up my M3 two weeks ago, a demo car with 900 miles on it, sold as “new”. I took delivery, the person told me I can contact service within 24 hours to have any issues dealt with on the car. When I got home I noticed a number of minor body alignment issues...

    Question about switching out stock wheels

    I have a Model 3 LR with the 19" wheels coming in a week. I may end up keeping the wheels, but I want to know my options.. 1) What do a full set of 19" M3 LR wheels with tires sell for (brand new)? 2) Do stock 20" uberturbines work on an M3 LR? Can I put aftermarket 21" wheels on the car...

    Can't change my order to an existing inventory car?

    Okay but I’m still confused because I know someone who had a model 3 with delivery estimate a few months away, and they called and Tesla assigned an existing inventory VIN to them without issue. So I’m just wondering why they are saying it’s an issue

    Can't change my order to an existing inventory car?

    I've been told in the past that if an existing inventory order pops up, I can contact a Tesla advisor to assign my order VIN to the existing inventory order. But I just asked, and they specifically said they can't do that, and that I would need to order the vehicle from the inventory list...

    Suspension automatically lowered itself onto parking curb?

    I'm driving a 2022 Model S, and parked in a parking garage today. Front of car went over the parking curb, plenty of clearance. When I got back in the car later, the Model S had lowered itself onto the curb and I can't get it to rise back up again. I've gone into the suspension controls and...

    Placing an existing inventory order

    When you place an existing inventory order, do you pay straight away? Put a deposit? What info do they need at that point? Do you have to pick lease or finance at that point?

    Are S LR cars actually showing up in inventory?

    I read here that LR model S cars are showing up in existing inventory daily, is that true? I haven’t seen any and I’m checking constantly. I’m in LA so maybe that’s why, can anyone let me know where they are where they’re seeing inventory?

    Has anyone taken over someone's reservation recently?

    Okay but what if they don’t have a Tesla on the account already?

    Has anyone taken over someone's reservation recently?

    It sounds like the way to do it is takeover the person's account and change all the delivery details. But I have no idea if this is still do-able nowadays, maybe Tesla cracked down on things? Can anyone confirm that still works?

    Can you buy someone’s order?

    My friend is about to go buy a Mercedes EQS instead of a Tesla S LR, because it’s gonna take 9 months to get a Tesla. I’m trying to save him from spending a stupid amount of money for a lesser car. Is it possible to buy someone’s upcoming order?? Or is that a no no from Tesla?
