    Petition asking Tesla to give free software upgrades to owners who purchased before price cut

    Yea, that was unintentional, my bad. I was looking for information about this petition thing that I read about and was hoping this community would be able to fill me in. Which @CapeOne was able to fill me in on. Sorry for the click bait title I'll actually delete the thread or something now...

    Petition asking Tesla to give free software upgrades to owners who purchased before price cut

    That is correct. Well mostly correct, as I originally stated it is more of a band-aid for the painfully cheaper prices of the vehicles that are available now (a m3 performance is 5k less than what I paid for a LR) and would help ease the pain not necessarily a solution as you say. (Also you used...

    Petition asking Tesla to give free software upgrades to owners who purchased before price cut

    Read an article on drudge.com saying 6,000 people signed this "petition" asking for Elon to approve free software upgrades such as acceleration boost and enhanced auto pilot for owners who purchased their vehicle before the 20% price cut recently. Anyone else want to know more about this!? Where...

    M3LR 20,400 miles later Vin: 247xxx Built: 5/22 Most of you have likely done hours of research about your car but I would like to share some points that I may have had questions about and I'd love to answer some of your questions if you have any. Overall: I was just as hype as all of you are...

    Many many many many many times of tesla wanting to take me down streets that are closed for construction... Im not talking about streets that just shut down last week, i mean streets that have been closed for nearly 8-10 months.... Apple maps (my old nav system pre Tesla) never led me wrong...

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    1. I kept as paying cash until I had a scheduled pick up date and then changed to financing 3rd party through the app. 2. My credit union sent money to tesla via the instructions that tesla gives in the 3rd party financing notes/document addressed to the lender. 3. All financing was settled...

    IMO its a car that you're driving on the road. If you need PPF you shouldn't be driving the car and it should be sitting in a show room. That's just me though, most people have the opposite opinion. However, for me my car is just a car, its to get me from point a to point b and I really couldn't...

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    You all do know that the car comes with a tesla thumb drive right... its more than cable to capture and store all events. I know its not made very clear when you buy a tesla, but for clarification you don't have to buy an ssd or any other storage device for your sentry and dash cam.

    Are you saying your OEM tires only lasted you 10,000 miles?

    After 12,000 miles on my 22 m3lr that I took delivery of in may (27 day order to delivery in case anyone wondered(cough cough CLE lol)), I wanted to share a few negatives (because its not all cupcakes and rainbows) So I have 2 issues that are extremely annoying and they are both software issues...

    100% doing something wrong. Ive got full coverage on a 2017 equinox and my 2022 M3LR and its only $110 a month. Bundled with my home insurance through Huntington (the bank) insurance. Get a insurance broker who will shop around for you.

    Ohio Waiting Room

    Took about 3-4 weeks for mine, you should be getting them in the mail soon. My stickers (county name and reg sticker) actually came like 2-3 days before my plate arrived. If you want personalized plates you'll have to go to the bmv and get new plates.

    Ohio Waiting Room

    It seems like the answer is Yes. For whatever reason, it seems like Lyndhurst has a portal from the factories lol!!! I ordered my model 3 on april 16th and my EDD on the app said something like august-september for delivery... but i drove off the lot with a brand new car in less than 30 days...

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    In my experience, if you have any plans of doing any traveling or vacationing in your Tesla when it arrives you absolutely need the mobile charger, with a nema 14-50 adapter and the 120v adapter as a back up. For a real life example. Amish country in Ohio, there are no chargers to be found...

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    I would like to know if they tinted all the way up on the back glass to the ceiling bar or if they stopped above the defrost wires with your tint? I feel like I got ripped off because they stopped above the defrost wires and didnt go all the way to the bar.

    This truck is still sitting here with all of the Tesla's on it, more than 48 hours later. Now the Tesla in the back on the top has lights on for some reason, nobody in sight.

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    I got to work yesterday with 71% battery and left overheat protection on, temperature got up to like 101°F outside. I worked 12 hours, got in my car and had 68% battery remaining. (3% battery drain over 12.5 hours in the direct sunlight 101°F ambient outside temp). Not bad, I will be leaving...

    Saw this truck broke down last night on the side of I-80 (Ohio Turnpike) at the 189 Eastbound and didnt get a picture. This morning when I was headed west it was still there and I was able to grab a picture. Granted these may not be new cars (at least the one with chrome is for sure not new)...

    Man I hate to see people paying electricians for jobs like this. For as short of a run this is, if you have 0 experience you can still safely do this job yourself in under an hour or two. The Tesla wall connector only requires 6-2 wire w/ground that could be the reason the guy is asking (which...

    Y'all are killing me lol, I'm glad I can lighten the mood in this group and help hand out a few laughs 😃 - as I remove my signature to hide my order deets I promise to never speak of it again haha

    Sure, i will copy and paste my google review to save me some time. "Ceramic tint on a 2022 Tesla Model 3 So, great people to work with all positive, tint looks pretty good and only found 1 small bubble that has shrunk over the past couple days. However, if you are coming here for a Tesla tint...

    https://electrek.co/2022/06/08/elon-musk-warns-tesla-workers-nutty-end-of-quarter-delivery-wave/ Interesting insight as to why California peeps don't see a lot of vehicles until end of quarter.

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    Im not from that area but I do have one word of advise. Call around and get quotes and ask this specific question "Will you guys be tinting the back in 1 sheet or two?" IF the answer is two don't waste your time they don't have the skillset to do your car. I made this mistake, they told me two...

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    Careful blasting that out. Ohio appears to have the best delivery times and people in this group hate that. The Ohio waiting room thread is a better place to announce that because most of us in there had a 30 day or less wait time.

    Ohio Waiting Room

    I believe that! My buddy had the same experience with his model Y at the Lyndhurst service center. It was not a reject. Us Cleveland area folks somehow are getting our cars in a fraction of the time everyone else in the country (including Freemont, CA) is. Tesla's algorithm is so messed up and...

    Also FYI for anyone that wants to get window tint near Kent, do not go to Magic City Customs.

    Ohio Waiting Room

    This thread seems slightly inactive but I will share my experience regardless. So following along with the "Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room" thread people from all over the country have been averaging about 70-100 days from order to delivery. I also expected the same since my original EDD was...

    That thought blows my mind, that's genius. I don't think its that far from impossible especially if the tech already exists!

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    Question may not be for this group but i'll ask anyways. After my first car wash a few weeks ago in the car I had grease all along the bottom/middle of the passenger side (full length of the car). I still don't know where it came from, I had to scrub it off because the drivethru car wash didnt...
  33. ForestGump

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    I did 35% in the front and 15% in the back. If there were no tint laws i'd definetly do 20% in the front or darker, (50% is legal in ohio, so im already pushing it at 35%). See my profile picture for the comparison.

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    "ALL" April and later orders is a pretty bold statement to make. Myself and 3 others I know who have ordered from Cleveland in April have been driving our brand new cars for 2 weeks + now. It is rare for most locations, but for whatever reason Cleveland orders get processed pretty fast, the...

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    I am definitely not a financial expert but if you've got a reasonable comfort of possibly making 1 or 2 payments on the car until you can sell it privately as a used car you may actually make money on it seeing how the used Tesla's usually sell for more than new, probably because you can get the...

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    Mine said "(no signature required)" -or something close to that - under the agreements section the entire time and when I went to pick up the car I had to sign in person.
  37. ForestGump

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    Yea I believe that is accurate, I switched from apple music to spotify just because the car. However you can bluetooth audio from your phone seamlessly so if your only motive to get premium connectivity is for music and podcasts and you don't already have spotify it may not be worth it.

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    So dashcam and sentry mode are both different from each other and from viewing live cameras from your phone through the app. But you bring up a good point, while leaving sentry mode on and cabin over heat protection on my car drains about 1-1.5 miles per hour of range throughout my work day...
  39. ForestGump

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    Also I don't see why anyone wouldn't want to get premium connectivity, its like $9 a month. Cheaper than most streaming subscriptions for entertainment, but this is for your car.

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    I use it, its a little glitchy and not real "smooth" maybe that's the cars cellular reception but yea. I use it often for random reasons.
  41. ForestGump

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    Yea, when I dropped mine off for tint I kept checking the live camera's and watching their every move lol

    "Zephaniah" - meaning God protects....mainly because that car was so expensive and I want God to protect it hahaha :p

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    Sadly, I had no luck, they said they were going to do 2 pieces and then I get in the car and see the just stopped at the top of the defrost grid and didnt even touch the roof area... smh... Find a reputable Tesla tint shop
  44. ForestGump

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    My tint was $365 + tax (Ohio) however they were far from Tesla pros when it came to tint... make sure you get someone that knows Tesla's and how to tint them. Your first question should be "can you do the back in 1 sheet" if they say no find a different guy.
  45. ForestGump

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    I asked the guy I rented it from and he said he did have acceleration boost. That makes sense now
  46. ForestGump

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    I think you are accurate on both of those assumptions.
  47. ForestGump

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    When I do that nothing happens, it actually gives me a message saying something along the lines of "auto hi beams have to be on in autosteer" or something like that. With that being said there are some features I don't have that some of my friends have on their cars like the ability to change...

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    My last EDD window was May 16 - May 20, I reached out to the Tesla SA via text on May 6th to see when I could expect to get scheduled and they texted me back with the invite to schedule, the car was then delivered to me on May 13th.

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    I'm still hanging around this thread, thought I would share a couple things i've come to learn after owning my car for 14 days now. I've driven 1600 miles since getting the car, my biggest annoyance is 100% the fact that you cant turn off the auto hi beams while in autosteer... Ughh sounds...

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    Never assume... I've been driving my April OD model 3 for almost a week now. It was NOT a cancelation. In fact the people I have talked to in this group and the people at my SC have all said that order from my area are usually all under 30 days from order to delivery. They said to ignore the...
