    Model 3 18" Michelin Primacy MXM4 TO 235/45r18 - Seattle, WA - $750

    These are the tires that came on my Tesla Model 3 18" Aero wheels, size 235/45 r18. They are amazing summer biased all season tires with the foam sound dampening for a quieter ride. These are almost new, just 800 miles on them with a warranty of 55,000 miles, so less than 1.5% of life used...

    New Model 3 Owner.......

    1. Yes, if you bought the long range all wheel drive with the $2,000 performance upgrade you have what is also known as the P3D-. 2. The red underline and track mode are performance only. If you have a 2020 you can also tell by the 8th position in your VIN, C denotes a performance variant. 3...

    "Acceleration Boost" option, discussion as to which models and how much quicker

    Stealth Performance with FSD owner here, I do not get the option it seems. I have no upgrades button in the app or website. I'm hoping they give something for us P3D owners as well.

    "Acceleration Boost" option, discussion as to which models and how much quicker

    Thanks for the screen shot, definitely not there for me. I also don't have Premium Connectivity. My options under Shop are: Tesla Insurance, Accessories, Charging, and Apparel. Maybe it has something to do with length of ownership? I've only had mine ~10 days.

    "Acceleration Boost" option, discussion as to which models and how much quicker

    No upgrades option when I click manage on my car. Also none if I click on View Details there. No idea where people are seeing this.

    P3D crowd: Competing vs. high-performance ICE from a roll?

    All the videos I've seen that start at a roll of anywhere between 30 and 70 mph the P3D destroys anything put up against it except super cars. The reason is the instant torque and on gearbox vs the ICE car needing to rev up and shift to a lower gear. Carwow did a video with the P3D+, BMW M3...

    Don't buy from taptes

    They ship from China so the tracking number is for China Post and it takes a while for them to get here. I ordered their floor mats and they came in 23 days.

    Most requested features/options/improvements for the Model 3?

    Those are my top two as well, but the build in TeslaCam viewer would be 1 and Android Auto 2.

    Roll race Video vs supercharged mustang

    Whats the point of having 650hp, and I'd assume 600ft/lb torque, if you don't have the traction to use it... This is why I take stated 0-60 times with a grain of salt, especially for RWD and manual vehicles. If you shift wrong, or slow, or its a little wet out, or you don't have racing slicks...

    Delivery and Taxes in Idaho

    Took delivery today in Bellevue. I did not have to pay any taxes at pickup, and will pay Idaho's 6% sales tax when I register it. However I did need to show them my ID drivers license and a 2nd proof of residency. The second can be a utility bill with your name, rental agreement, voter...

    LR AWD Performance (Stealth TM3) Waiting Room

    Picked up my white on black stealth this morning at 10am from Bellevue, WA! I got there a few minutes early and decided to open my Tesla app, sometime between last night and 9:50am they gave my account the access to the car. Could now see where it was and all the controls. Met with the Tesla...

    LR AWD Performance (Stealth TM3) Waiting Room

    It is quite interesting to hear from a retired fighter pilot! I am very surprised that it messed with you that much, and even more that you said the 0-80 is "just as brutal as a catapult shot from a nuclear aircraft carrier". Out of curiosity I looked up the calculation to get a 0-60 or...

    Lifetime Wh/mi

    Wow, some of these are super low! I'll be honest, I wont care about my wh/mi at all when I'm not on a road trip. I can charge for free at my apartment every night, so the only cost to me driving fast will be faster wheel wear. That said, on road trips I will be driving as efficiently as...

    Delivery and Taxes in Idaho

    I am titling and registering my car in CDA Idaho. I had originally been told I would have to have the car shipped from the nearest delivery center (Bellevue, WA) to avoid the WA state taxes. I got my MVPA and it shows no taxes, so I will pay those in ID when I register. However after more...

    My SA let me know my car came into Bellevue yesterday, and an hour or so later I was emailed by a Delivery Advisor. He asked me to double check my registration details/address, drivers license, insurance, payments, and trade in were all complete for the car. After double checking everything and...

    Owner reviews his new M3P:

    Its funny how different insurance companies are for different people. Geico was nearly 3x the price of USAA for me. $310/mo vs $110 for the same coverage.

    LR AWD Performance (Stealth TM3) Waiting Room

    Anyone getting a home delivery got a delivery text/date yet? Mine is being delivered to North Idaho through the Bellevue WA delivery center from what I understand. Only have the VIN in source code so far, but my SA told me "Looks like the car is fresh out of the factory so should be able to...

    When is Tesla gonna start producing for U.S?

    I hope they keep coming north up to Washington/Idaho! My SA said mine was finished being built on Wednesday, so hopefully that means it was shipped soon after.

    LR AWD vs LR AWD (Stealth) Performance resale value?

    To be fair, you can buy the red underline online for $10. For the 2020s, the VIN specifies it as a performance. Or you could pull up track mode which only the P has. Or show them a verified Dragy 0-60 or 1/4 mile time. Or give them a ride and floor it!

    When I get my stealth (hopefully soon!) I'll give you my red line if you'd like. I am planning on rebadging mine with blacked out versions anyways.

    I get an error when trying to open my MVPA on any device. I called the delivery center in fremont and he said he can see it fine on his end and will call/email back when they figure it out. Until then, I don't want to finalize my payment info but I've also heard not finalizing will delay...

    LR AWD Performance (Stealth TM3) Waiting Room

    Does anyone know the number for the delivery center that services the PNW? I am taking delivery in northern Idaho, and I think it comes through Seattle first. But none of the Seattle area Tesla locations are labeled as a "Delivery Center", but maybe the Bellevue on 20th st serves at the DC?

    Wiki Model 3 Order Tracking Spreadsheet

    To anyone in the PNW: I stopped by the parking lot in Bellevue that Tesla uses to park their new cars that don't fit on their 20th street parking lot and it's still almost empty. A couple months ago there were hundreds of cars in it. So the deliveries people are seeing coming up must be coming...

    I sent my SA an email a couple hours and this was his response just now: "Looks like the car is fresh out of the factory so should be able to get loaded onto a truck and out to you soon!" For reference it is a white exterior, black interior, 18" aeros, FSD. I ordered a P3D+ on 10/17 but...

    Have all the people who are getting confirmation of builds and shipping put in your Payment Method? I asked my SA last week and he told me to hold off on even applying for loans yet. My VIN isn't in the profile (/profile?rn=RN109668271) source code but it is in the product finalize...

    VINs don't have anything to do with build order, right? So a VIN of XX1000 isn't necessarily being built before XX2000, correct?

    What Trim Level is a Sleeper?

    The two most common names are Stealth and P3D-. The VIN for the stealth are the same as the standard Performance, as in if you read the VIN you can't tell if it is a standard performance or a stealth performance. For 2020 the 8th position in the VIN will be C for both, while it will be B for LR...

    Stealth/Sleeper/ P3D- Performance 3s in Northwest

    My SA is based in the Bellevue 20th st store, he is the one that switched my order from the P3D+ to - for me last week. All he knew was that they are in pre-production right now with no ETA on when it will be built or shipped.

    Ahh that's why then. I do have collision coverage on my mazda rx-8, even though its value is only ~$5k now.

    C in position 8 of VIN

    I don't know how your insurance works, but with mine you just tell them the vehicle and they set the prices. I am keeping the same $500 deductible, but the insurance covers everything after that. I don't need gap coverage since I am putting 20% down, but I did have, and am keeping, the +20%...

    C in position 8 of VIN

    I talked to my insurance and had them give me a quote. For the same coverage as I currently have for my 2005 Mazda rx8 it is $70/6mo more expensive, so $12/mo. For me that is $110/mo
  38. S

    LR AWD Performance (Stealth TM3) Waiting Room

    It looks like the P3D+ will also be C in 2020. We need to find someone overseas who got one and have them tell us what it is for them. It does seem to give more proof that the stealth has the exact same motors as the full performance

    LR AWD Performance (Stealth TM3) Waiting Room

    Thanks Chris3g! The VIN decoder that comes up first in google must not have been updated for 2020 VINs yet

    C in position 8 of VIN

    A few of us got the same over in the Stealth waiting room. I don't know if they can do this, but I think they changed the meaning of the C for position 8 to signify the stealth somehow.

    LR AWD Performance (Stealth TM3) Waiting Room

    I got the same thing, position 8 is C. Last 6 are: 602626 IMO we should wait before giving the VINs to our insurance and bank/cu for loans, the who knows if the source code is accurate.

    Performance Waiting Room

    I wonder how big a battery that 500 mile range 2.9s 0-60 will have. That thing has to be heavy and has massive and heavy tires. I'm guessing 150+ kWh

    Do we know what tires come on the Stealth on the 18" aeros?

    LR AWD Performance (Stealth TM3) Waiting Room

    According to my SA pre-production means they are planned, have VINs, and are preparing to be built very soon (a couple days to a week or so). Just swapped my P3D+ order for a P3D- and got a VIN in my source code within an hour. But I had to go to product-finalize?rn=RNxxxxxxxxxx

    I checked the order tracking sheet, the last P3D+ delivered to the USA was September 26th.

    I'm really curious how your SA knows that, the 2nd is still 10 days off. Do you have the VIN?
  48. S

    Performance Waiting Room

    It seems they do the opposite. A number of people have reported taking delivery or getting their VIN for SR+ in the US already, while not a single person has even the VIN for a P3D+ yet.

    Performance Waiting Room

    Yesterday my boss said the difference between 2.4s and 3.5s 0-60 was insignificant. I almost had a conniption. I'm 90% sure he was just saying it to annoy me, haha.
