    Diminished Value

    You can probably try to tell them something along the lines of giving you a written statement that they are unwilling to pay the full amount of your depreciation so therefore you will have to sue take their client to small claims court. I have read something like this around the forums. Not...

    Diminished Value

    What exactly do you mean by a $23k appraisal? Who appraised your vehicle? Or how did you conclude that is the difference of your car in value after the accident? Also, where can I get a DV appraisal? I am in a similar situation.

    2022 Model X - Interior Noise / Rattling / Crackling

    22' Model S Hit in Parking Lot. SentryCam captures all.

    Thank you for your insight! Well I guess it’s for sure going on my carfax. Yeah I figured it would be around 7k in damage 🤷‍♂️ Do you think it’s worth pursuing a diminishing value claim?

    22' Model S Hit in Parking Lot. SentryCam captures all.

    Hi all, I was hit tonight at a Best Buy parking lot. My Tesla app immediately notified me that my alarm was triggered. I looked at my phone and I prepared for the worst, made my way outside, and found a guy ran his Jeep into my hood as he was leaving the parking lot... His Jeep was intact, my...

    2022 Model X - Interior Noise / Rattling / Crackling

    in my experience, when you take it to service centers they tend to fix one problem... but you end up with another

    Model S LR Refresh 2022 rattling noise from dashboard

    Hi there! I finally figured out the source of my rattles! I just completed a long trip from LA to San Francisco and it gave me plenty of time to hone in on where the rattles were coming from. Rattle 1: the source of this rattle comes from the yoke scroll buttons. they must be a bit loose or...

    Model S LR Refresh 2022 rattling noise from dashboard

    Hi! Unfortunately I have not yet made any appointment to get it looked at. I still cannot pinpoint the source -_-

    2022 Model S deliver in September. Windshield distortion

    not worth replacing the windshield. this is the way the windshields are on the model S, sadly. i replaced the windshield on my 21' S refresh... they messed up the car's seals and created more problems and headaches. It got so bad I had to sell that car and I got a 22' Model S and the windshield...

    Model S LR Refresh 2022 rattling noise from dashboard

    did they charge you for this? did they mention anything about a fee for diagnosing your rattle? glad to hear your car is rattle-free... as they should be :)

    Model S LR Refresh 2022 rattling noise from dashboard

    yes, the very loose plastic cover underneath the tilting display. wtf tesla. seriously, like how are you going to design a loose plastic cover without realizing the rattles it will produce.

    Easiest way to black out Tesla emblem (front and back)?

    yes please do not buy from this site! they are horrible quality and really chunky. worst money i spent. they seemed spray painted and during installation the paint was starting to peel off, not kidding!

    Model S LR Refresh 2022 rattling noise from dashboard

    i have a slight jingle from the yoke column area. super annoying. i cant seem to pin point it. i dread driving without music on.

    Ok, I tried Tidal, and…(and “premium” audio too)

    I really appreciate your response, thank you so much! so, the best way to do it is to tether your phones wifi to the car and then use the Tesla Tidal App? Right now I just use the Tesla Tidal app without tethering and the songs have "HIGH" right next to them. By tether would "Hi-Fi" appear instead?

    Tidal performance

    Can someone pls explain how to get the best out of tidal on a Tesla? I’ve read multiple threads about Tidal, but still am unsure of what to do. I’m on a 22’ Tesla Model S. Do I tether my phone to my Tesla and then use the Tesla Tidal App? Am I free to just use the Tidal app on my Tesla without...

    2022 Model S Sound System Quality

    what does everyone's Equalizer look like? i'll post mine later, but just curious if anyone has tuned it really nicely
  19. R

    How does FSD beta come in? What actually happens?

    what is the Saftey Score threshold nowadays? are they accepting people as they reach a certain score or will there be mass acceptance event for people at a certain score?

    2022 Model S Sound System Quality

    im just on the spotify app in the car, no bluetooth. i just don't remember noticing this much distortion on the high frequencies on my 21' refresh S (previous car) compared to my 22' S perhaps ill try tidal and see if it's actually a file quality issue rather than hardware related
  21. R

    Model S LR Refresh 2022 rattling noise from dashboard

    yeah i found this to be an issue as well... although this still isnt the source of the other small rattle on the dash
  22. R

    2022 Model S Sound System Quality

    does anyone get any distortion on the high end with certain songs? i am beginning to think it may be my actual speakers, but i do not know how to properly diagnose this. i assume if i take it to tesla service the technicians will say "well it sounds normal to me" *rolls eyes*

    Model S refresh rattles/creaks

    perfect! thank you so much!

    Model S LR Refresh 2022 rattling noise from dashboard

    exactly. i can't seem to pinpoint where it is coming from. i was able to pinpoint one rattle and it came from the front windshield camera housing/rear view mirror, but still looking for the dashboard one

    Model S refresh rattles/creaks

    does anyone have a link for how we can remove the door panels on a model s refresh?
  26. R

    Model S LR Refresh 2022 rattling noise from dashboard

    i am having this same rattle... it's slight but still noticeable. it seems to come from behind the yoke or somewhere there of. i wish someone has figured it out yet :/

    2022 Model S LR Headlight Issue

    i owned the 21' model s refresh... i do agree the headlights were a complete joke for a 100k+ car. i now own the 22' model s and those are a world of a difference, much better suited for a car at this price point.

    Wiki Mega-consolidated delivery quality issues thread and checklist

    thanks for your suggestion! i will look into it. I took it to the service center and they said they will take a look at it.... aka stare at it and say they can't do anything about it lol

    Wiki Mega-consolidated delivery quality issues thread and checklist

    i realized i had 4 scratches on my windshield a bit after delivery. now i can't unsee the scratches, but i refuse to replace the windshield because i am scared they will mess up the seals and will introduce wind noise if i go in that direction -_-

    Wiki Mega-consolidated delivery quality issues thread and checklist

    ALWAYS check for scratches on your windshield :)
  31. R

    Wiki Mega-consolidated delivery quality issues thread and checklist

    this is very true... sometimes i would advise not to even schedule a service appointment for small imperfections because they ALWAYS end up breaking or damaging or making something else worse!

    To those with Ceramic tint

    if they have to overlap it like that on an easy window… my guess is that it is an unprofessional job. or he was just lazy and took an easy way out. don’t know much about tint, but I have never seen this before. I’d definitely take it elsewhere

    Tesla Service ruined my paint!

    Hi guys, Yes, I am planning on first having Tesla body shop fix the issues (this is a local body shop they outsource to for all their paint needs). I trust them much more than the amature that polished my car in the dark.

    Tesla Service ruined my paint!

    Just wanted to share a photo of my paint after Tesla Service told me I would receive my car with a “light polish” because they’re replacing my carbon fiber spoiler. It’s kind of laughable how unprofessional some of their personnel is… this is amature work right here—take a look at the attached...

    No Adjust Headlights Button In 21 Model S Refresh?

    i saw this button on my car as well... in what situation would we need to adjust the headlights?
  37. R

    Looking to possibly buy a 21/22 Model S. Worried there are so many being sold with low miles

    if you want a heavily used plaid with those specs then by all means. 19k miles per year is a ton of miles... i'd look for lower milage options around that price range.

    Easiest way to black out Tesla emblem (front and back)?

    why didnt you go for the front on their website? i'm thinking of getting this for mine both front and rear. still on the fence if I should get satin or glossy. what do you guys think looks better?

    Driver's door trim bump...is this normal?

    most model S refresh that I have seen have this. I assume it is normal. My 21' and now my 22' have this. I wouldn't mess with it. It might potentially create new unwanted headaches later on with your door seals and rattles. if its not broken, dont fix it.
  40. R

    Model S rear window distortion?

    i think this is normal. i've had two model s refresh, a 21' and a 22' and they both have it

    Model S -> Taycan Review

    congrats on your plaid! i am sure you will enjoy it so much! also, great move on the 19" tempest rims-- i cannot say it enough what a world of a difference those rims make when it comes to a more comfortable ride.

    Plaid Vinyl Wrap - Wild Orange

    thank you! im on the edge of doing this to mine. i love the look, but im not sure of it from a safety perspective
  43. R

    Plaid Vinyl Wrap - Wild Orange

    looks great! did you tint the taillights as well? if so, what % tint did you use? they look darker than standard but it may just be the way the sunlight hits them
  44. R

    Looking to possibly buy a 21/22 Model S. Worried there are so many being sold with low miles

    i would avoid the 21" arachnids too. not only as you mentioned they have a short lifespan and wear issues... they also provide a much rougher ride than the 19". I can attest to this because I owned both cars, my 21' with 21" arachnids (which i sold), and my 22' with the 19" tempest. tempest ride...

    Wanting to order a Tesla Plaid, will wrap it, but what base color?

    love this! what wrap and tint % is this? looks beautiful

    22 Model S, large scratch upon delivery

    Hi Andrew, I love the Tesla brand. Besides the large scratch, the car is perfect. I hope you understand this company made me a fortune and changed my life for the better. Yes, I am willing to be lenient on such a defect.

    22 Model S, large scratch upon delivery

    Yeah, they texted me as well, but they wanted photos and other info that I didn't even bother providing that information knowing my offer would more than likely be laughable.
