    Feedback on AutoDrive Performance Requested

    So double click stock is "Autopilot" you should see the steering wheel turn blue. If you have an address entered in, you will have the option for "navigate on autopilot" which should suggest lane changes and get off the highway for you. The blue line in front of the vehicle shows that the...

    Vendor Floor Mats

    When will all the orders be fulfilled? I'm still waiting on mine, but I'm used to preorders and "Kickstarters" where I dont see products for months so I'm trying to be patient. Just hoping I get things in the next few weeks before my road trip. I will agree with @zikronix on some things though...

    Well all the lights are led, just 3rd party ones are brighter.

    DCU Loan

    If you want to squeeze a bit more out, their checking account is currently .5% so if you move the interest earned on savings to checking you could get a bit more

    DCU Loan

    I wanted lower monthly payment. 72mo gives me that. And it only costs like an extra $300 in interest over the 65mo DCU was offering. That $300 should be covered by the fact I'm earning 6% on 1000 that I have in DCU savings, ie 60/yr for 6 years. It's more that I'm hacking things to get the...

    DCU Loan

    Yeah, you don't want to do any financing until you are within I'd say 2 weeks of expected delivery (that gives you a few week buffer if things are delayed). It took me 2 weeks to even get an account set up with them. You can't get the loan docs until you have a Vin, but you can start the...

    passenger footwell lights removal

    Ok 20min after I posted I managed to get all the other ones installed. The footwells were the hardest, and one door. Passenger door I started with and couldn't get the lever on the wires undone. Had to use pliers and and a screwdriver to lower the lever and pull the wire away from the light...

    passenger footwell lights removal

    Is there an easier way to remove the footwell lights from the passenger footwell? They won't pop out from the front easily with a spudger, and I removed the entire panel they are in and still can't get the clips to pop out.

    DCU Loan

    Tesla uses different banks, US, WF, Chase etc. But they should be able to use anyone of them to ratematch. You email [email protected] our buddy Chris will flip a coin and you either get 60mo or 72. Sometimes you get unlucky and he can't match. Edit: to clarify, there seems to be only one...

    DCU Loan

    They matched mine Wells Fargo 1.24 for 72mo. I financed about 91% of the car.

    Does the armrest comes with Coin and sunglass holder?

    There's a cubby there, but not specifically for anything. Just empty space. We fit a lot of my wife's misc stuff like extra glasses/sunglasses, tide pen, sunscreen. We keep our sunglasses in their cases of we aren't using them so I currently don't feel bad chucking them in there with everything...

    DCU Loan

    You don't. When you get the DocuSign, just send a copy to Tesla You have to make sure you get them to add the direct deposit discount because I don't believe they offer it unless you ask. (I had a little mishap with that).
  13. ejfirestar

    DCU Loan

    There should be a way to check what the status of your checking account is. I believe it's under "account manager > home" it will show something like "your current checking benefits". You have to be a plus or relationship member to get the .5%. I don't know how long it takes to kick in, but...

    And here she is! After fixing the registration twice and the loan rate match three times lol. The car is finally safe at home in my garage

    CA Waiting Room

    I know I said my next post was going to be my car. But woke up this morning and my loan was changed back to the 2.49% for the 3rd time! I had everything signed last night and even downloaded a copy of the loan. So now 2 hours before I'm supposed to pick up my car and [email protected] had to reapply...

    CA Waiting Room

    12 hours until I (hopefully) pick up my car. They said it should be leaving Fremont for SB in the morning. But what a whirlwind the last couple days... Got the DCU loan docs, but they were wrong, so waited on hold for 2 hours for them to correct, then got it rate matched through Tesla, all in...

    Best interest rate via Tesla financing?

    65 months at 1.24. they can approve you without the MVPA, but you can't get the docs for the loan without it. (Ie can't rate match without the MVPA and the loan agreement from DCU) Because 65 is odd, my term was matched to a 72mo through Wells Fargo at the same 1.24. (I heard some people got...

    Best interest rate via Tesla financing?

    So, I got my vin last weekend, had my wife finalize the loan through DCU but forgot to remind her to ask about direct deposit discount, so they didn't add it. Got the DocuSign at 10:30am PST showing only 1.74%. spent the next 2 hours on hold to get them to change it. They were able to send me...

    CA Waiting Room

    No, you just need to pay before you can accept your car. I'll at least wait until my loan is mailed

    Jk literally just got a text. Scheduled noon on the 30th

    Just drove past the delivery center in SB. Large truck full of model ys parked down the street. Didn't see my red one on it, plenty of blues and msms though

    Model Y 82kW Battery Pack

    I would like to see more people reporting about this before it's confirmed. His reported nominal and expected range is very much in line with what is being advertised. Almost as if the battery conveniently degraded 5% within a week of delivery... So either this means something still needs to be...

    Dibs on the red one. Idk how far south they are going, seems like they are delivering starting Fremont and working outwards now. Maybe SB will actually be soon.

    The only text I've ever gotten was the "welcome to Tesla" when I first ordered
  27. ejfirestar

    CA Waiting Room

    That seems so odd, that there are cars out there that wouldn't be automatically routed to someone else. Plenty of deliveries have low vin numbers for "new" cars which makes me think that they are getting rerouted, but didn't seem to be in your case...

    CA Waiting Room

    Mine finally changed back to June 24-30 after like 3 days of September
  29. ejfirestar

    CA Waiting Room

    Tesla, please send some more red cars further south. K thx
  30. ejfirestar

    CA Waiting Room

    And another red order... At least you ordered a month before me so I can't complain
  31. ejfirestar

    CA Waiting Room

    Ugh, seriously... And I'm sitting here with a similar config, ordered earlier and with September EDD. (Just double checked my account to make sure) Congrats though 🙂.

    Smart Summon not working for my FSD

    Doesn't the "blue button" popup before you take delivery tell you that it's moving to Tesla vision and certain features are disabled?
  33. ejfirestar

    CA Waiting Room

    Now that's an old order... Wasn't sure there were any more March left

    Current Delivery Times

    Estimated Delivery: September 17 - October 07 My end of June date flipped to that. Better be a fluke.
  35. ejfirestar

    CA Waiting Room

    This is dumb, I'm totally blind on when my delivery is because it's been saying this for the past 2 days Estimated Delivery: September 17 - October 07 There's no way in hell out could be that long of a wait for a 5/2 order
  36. ejfirestar

    CA Waiting Room

    Reds gives me hope, though I'm south, and my EDD is like October right now lol. Everytime I see a red model y I get slightly more jealous.
  37. ejfirestar

    CA Waiting Room

    With all the msm and blue waiting, I'm wondering if they won't get reds out in time. Seems like if you order late and get lucky with either an existing car, or they happen to be making that batch of cars your days can move up. Kinda annoyed seeing random people order red cars in June and get...
  38. ejfirestar

    CA Waiting Room

    Whoa mine changed to Sep 17 to Oct 7. Haven't had specific dates in Sep yet.

    How long before delivery did you install wall charger ?

    Started shopping around for electricians about a month after ordering my car. Just got the connector installed, car should hopefully be here in a week. I just wanted to make sure I had it installed before I got my car
  40. ejfirestar

    CA Waiting Room

    My SA replied back, but didn't give me an exact ETA, just "most likely the end of the month" so I guess it could be all the way to the 30th... I'm just really hoping for next Friday.
  41. ejfirestar

    CA Waiting Room

    Well, electrician came by today and installed my wall connector. Hopefully I'll get to use it next week.
  42. ejfirestar

    CA Waiting Room

    No email (I'm using DCU for financing) Dates June 20-30 now. Sent an email to my SA to ask for a build date yesterday, hopefully get a reply today. I have to call and extend financing today... Fun
  43. ejfirestar

    CA Waiting Room

    Speculation, but my dates were showing 6/20 earliest, until I told my SA to swap me to 3rd party financing, now the minimum date has been the 18th. Granted that's probably just a coincidence, but it got me thinking maybe the extra day or two was the padding for having to deal with the bank. I...
  44. ejfirestar

    CA Waiting Room

    From what I've heard, you should get your vin a few days before pickup so that you have time to overnight a check. DCU seemed to only send checks directly to Tesla or to you. I don't think there would be a scenario where you would get a Vin and car in the same day, unless it was preexisting...
  45. ejfirestar

    CA Waiting Room

    Yeah I clicked financing too early in my account. And then wanted to get it matched with DCU to combine the pulls, but didn't realize DCU is 45 days instead of 60. Which put me at the earliest possible delivery. June 18-30. loan expires the 19th lol
  46. ejfirestar

    CA Waiting Room

    My financing expires in 3 days... But I don't think I'll have a Vin in time. Guess I have to wait on hold for 2 hours with DCU and get it extended.
  47. ejfirestar

    CA Waiting Room

    Ha it was you! I tried to quote and couldn't find the post.
  48. ejfirestar

    CA Waiting Room

    I was hoping to get my car before 200 pages but you all talk too much. Guess it's going to be more like 300
