    Austin, TX Owners - Questions For You

    I'm wondering how common it is to run an extension cord from your patio to your car to get a little extra charge here and there? Not all the time, but maybe overnight so you have a little extra juice in the morning. I don't want my neighbors thinking I'm a hillbilly though.

    Removing front license plate

    I removed mine last night. Used a hair dryer and just gently pulled on it until it came off. Took about 10 minute because I pulled very slowly. It didn't leave much residue, and goo gone was able to get rid of that little bit it did leave. Looks great!

    [POLL] Current owners: If shopping today, would you pick a different trim/configuration?

    Filing Tax Returns & EV Credits

    I am pretty sure the Tax Credit is delaying our refunds. My mother and I filed our taxes on the same day (we use the same accountant) and she already received her refunds a week ago. I received my state refund back, but my federal is still pending according to the IRS website. I filed on the 5th.

    21,000 miles on my 3 LR RWD

    Wow... I guess I don't drive very much at all? I've had mine since August and I've only put 5,500 miles on mine. Not a single problem yet though. I've loved every day with my baby :)

    Filing Tax Returns & EV Credits

    I'm still waiting on my accountant to finish my taxes, but I am curious.... Has anyone got their numbers back yet? How much are you getting back this year, compared to how much you got back last year?

    Austin, TX Owners - Questions For You

    I am currently considering moving from California to Austin, TX for a job. I visited this weekend and looked at a few apartments... Seems like none of them have on-site charging capabilities and it didn't look like my potential new office had chargers either. This is a big difference from here...

    Mercedes C300 or Model 3 for Son?

    I've actually had a C300 before and I currently have the Model 3. I also had a GLC300. I was a big Mercedes fan before I switched to Tesla. As an owner of both, I can tell you that the M3 is soooo much better. Mercedes is nice, but it doesn't compare to Tesla. Also, the C300 has been around...

    Model 3 Key Fob is here: $150

    Just ordered these lanyard key rings on Amazon. Should work perfect to attach my keys to the fob. And 10 of them for only $5? Can't complain: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01MXPUAKT/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    Model 3 Key Fob is here: $150

    The car will start without placing the fob, within 2 minutes after you've unlocked it. So you will only have to place the fob in the center console area if you take longer than 2 minute after unlocking the car. Also, you don't have to leave the fob there. You place it, start the car, and then...

    Model 3 Key Fob is here: $150

    Does your S key fob have a hook on the back to attach a key ring? I am concerned because you can't see one in the display picture. I'll be a little irritated if I can't attach to my existing keys...

    Model 3 Key Fob is here: $150

    It says in the Key Fob support article that you program it yourself, the same way you program the key cards or your phone: How do I pair my Key Fob? To pair a Key Fob to your Model 3, go to the Locks tab in Controls on your touchscreen. Follow the onscreen prompts to add a new key. Once paired...

    Tesla Not Charging For Supercharging, Even Though They Should?

    I stopped at a supercharger a couple of weeks back to charge my car. It said my total dollar amount I should pay was $4.73, but I still haven't been charged.... It doesn't show up on my tesla.com account at all, but it still shows up on my screen in my car when I am charging. I've charged before...

    Updated to Version 2018.42.3

    Ever since I got the update, my Summon seems to connect a lot quicker. Within a couple of seconds now. It used to take sometimes up to 30 seconds or it wouldn't connect at all sometimes.

    Touch - Car Wash... Who has taken the chance?

    That's why I am asking... What is so different about taking a Tesla through one vs any other car? People on this forum talk about Tesla + Touch Car Washes as if they will literally destroy your car. Like they will break the sensors, break the cameras, cause the sky to fall, give Elon a heart...

    Touch - Car Wash... Who has taken the chance?

    We've all seen the warnings about only using touch-free car washes, but I am curious if anyone has actually taken their M3 through a car wash that isn't touch-free?

    I ordered my CA legacy personalized plates back on May 4th

    I ordered mine before I even bought my car because the lady at the DMV told me it's taking at least 4 months. It's been over 2 months already and I'm not even expecting anything for awhile longer.

    iPhone XS (Max) as a key

    I switched from Android over to iPhone Xs Max. So far iPhone as key has worked every single time. Works much better than my Galaxy S9+ did, which failed pretty often.

    Standard Rear License Plate Frame

    Financing Two Days After Ordering?

    Got a call today from the dealership... My car arrived already and passed inspection. I asked if there was any reason why I needed to wait 4 days from now to get the car if the car was ready, my financing was done and everything else was done... He said, there was no reason at all and I could go...

    Financing Two Days After Ordering?

    Financing Two Days After Ordering?

    If my timeline is anywhere near as fast as yours, I'll be thrilled. I was told by the Tesla Dealership in Santa Barbara, CA that those of us on the West Coast are getting our cars within a 1-3 weeks because we are so close to the factory in Fremont, CA and every recent post I've seen from...

    Financing Two Days After Ordering?

    I did my financing directly through Tesla and so I assume since they opened MyTesla account up and said to start financing, that I would be okay to do so. If it ends up taking longer for delivery and the approval period ends before delivery, I would be pretty annoyed. You'd think they wouldn't...

    I ordered my M3 on Thursday 08/09/2018 and my MyTesla account already advised me today to apply for financing. Financing is all done and approved. Did everyone else start their financing that soon? Is this a good sign that my car will be ready to delivery soon since they already had me start my...
