    Custom Light Show isn’t Working

    So it does work! My error, I think, was having the partition labeled TeslaDrive rather than TESLADRIVE.

    Custom Light Show isn’t Working

    Has anyone gotten this to work in a M3LR with just the single glovebox usb. I tried the partitioning in post 2 and nada. It does recognize the usb and will also recognize multiple partitions, so not sure where I am going wrong if it is even possible at this point.

    Headrest odd stretching?

    Have one for next week. Will hope it gets covered and report back.

    Should I leave my Model 3 plugged in while on 10 day vacation?

    Was gone for 14 days and lost 8 miles of range whole time. No sentry on and no preconditioning while gone.

    Headrest odd stretching?

    Will this go back into place with heat? Just noticed and not sure what happened. Only 7k miles.

    Small bump, big dent

    I was in a simile situation a few months ago. Stopped. Waiting to clear and got hit, but my guy had no insurance so lost a deductible. Ah, but we are driving teslas. Bigger problems as you said. My little dent took 2 months to get to shop and like a 2 day repair. I was impressed at number of...

    Battery Charge Level Upon Delivery?

    I think my M3LR was at least 80%, probably closer to 90% since they really don't want you to go all the way unless for long trips.

    6K miles, metal on metal grinding noise - Do my break pads look ok?

    So follow-up with resolution. Service center said loose upper control arm bolt and they retorqued it to spec. Wife said noise gone.

    6K miles, metal on metal grinding noise - Do my break pads look ok?

    And back again. Will know on Wednesday hopefully an answer.

    6K miles, metal on metal grinding noise - Do my break pads look ok?

    So after having done the steps again and then doing a pretty quick acceleration up to 75ish, the noise is now gone again. Not sure if it just temporarily dislodges whatever is stuck, or if it crushes into little pieces that eventually fall out.

    6K miles, metal on metal grinding noise - Do my break pads look ok?

    So would that be from the rear-ending or just a luck of the draw? I guess my question now becomes will Tesla fix under warranty or want the shop to fix? I just want it safe to drive and the noise gone…

    6K miles, metal on metal grinding noise - Do my break pads look ok?

    Yeah the sound didn’t come on until 1-2 weeks or so after the accident, and was pretty minor. And then for it to go away and now back again. We will see what the service center says next week. The shop said they would fix hidden damage so not sure if Tesla would fix or just defer to the shop.

    6K miles, metal on metal grinding noise - Do my break pads look ok?

    Just perplexing that it came back. No other a Nintendo-like cheat codes I might try?

    6K miles, metal on metal grinding noise - Do my break pads look ok?

    Latest video from this morning. I was rear ended a month ago with very minimal bumper damage that will also get repaired next month. Not sure if any hidden damage as only like a 1 inch dent and minor scrape.
  15. N

    6K miles, metal on metal grinding noise - Do my break pads look ok?

    I still have my service appointment scheduled for next week and will report back. It is odd that it did go away and has come back. So I just wonder if they have to take it off to get whatever it may be out, or if they have to live or tighten anything. Definitely not going to tinker.

    6K miles, metal on metal grinding noise - Do my break pads look ok?

    Well the sound is back again after about 36 hours. Not sure if the pebble just got repositioned, but the trick above didn’t work this time.
  17. N

    6K miles, metal on metal grinding noise - Do my break pads look ok?

    So after trying the instructions for possible pebble in this thread, Metallic Grinding / Scraping noise (known problem) the noise is gone. Who knew a pebble could cause such a noise. So I guess it started with a small pebble getting in between the aero cap and wheel causing the quieter rhythmic...

    6K miles, metal on metal grinding noise - Do my break pads look ok?

    Thank you for the replies. I think I was able to upload a video to YouTube with the sound. Not sure if this helps.
  19. N

    6K miles, metal on metal grinding noise - Do my break pads look ok?

    I only checked the rear. I will try to post a video of the sound as it definitely sounds like the awful grinding on an ICE car.

    6K miles, metal on metal grinding noise - Do my break pads look ok?

    I feel like there is a gap in the second picture versus the first? Not sure if this would cause the noise or what would cause it to be off…

    6K miles, metal on metal grinding noise - Do my break pads look ok?

    Hi all. I first noticed an intermittent rhythmic tapping sound about two weeks ago in my 2022 LR with now 6K miles that appeared with deceleration. It had briefly gone away but came back with a vengeance and now definitely sounds like metal on metal grinding. I set up an appointment when it...

    Tapping sound after update, now gone after latest update?

    2022 Model 3 LR, about 6K miles now. It says 2022.12.3.12 for current software

    Tapping sound after update, now gone after latest update?

    Not sure if anyone else had this experience, but I began to hear quite a loud tapping noise when lifting foot off of accelerator that coinciding with an update about two weeks ago. Yesterday we did an update and I feel like this issue has gone away. I did have a service appointment scheduled and...

    Got rear ended - take to Tesla or elsewhere

    But what if they don't have active insurance? The card they gave me was expired and company said was only active until last month. Police were going to make contact and I hope he was insured, but if not, not sure how they would go after him other than tickets, etc? Legal fees would probably cost...

    Got rear ended - take to Tesla or elsewhere

    Thank you all. I am glad I at least have uninsured motorist coverage and they said rates won't go up for non at-fault claim. Deductible still sucks and will try to get depreciation claim to try to offset that.

    Got rear ended - take to Tesla or elsewhere

    Also, must say pleasantly surprised how little damage. Definitely heard a loud thud but other vehicle took brunt of it. Didn’t really move at in seat. Attempted to save dash cam and glad I videoed it on my phone as for some reason it re wrote over it as I was waiting for police to show up.

    Got rear ended - take to Tesla or elsewhere

    So the other motorists policy that gave me expired last month. Police attempting to make contact to follow up. Hopefully he has or I will have 500 deductible. Is it worth it to repair? Should I try to get depreciation claim? If so how much?

    Got rear ended - take to Tesla or elsewhere

    Just got rear-ended at a stop sign. Some scratches and about 2 inch dump in bumper. Should I take to Tesla or let at fault insurance shop work on it?

    New update bugs w/spotify?

    Has anyone noticed difficulty with spotifying automatically loading after the newest update this week? I will always have to switch to another source like radio first before going back to spotify so it loads. When I first got the car until now it typically worked fine. Also, after the newest...

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    This. No other EV comes close to same price for similar acceleration and ranged combined. And then for an extra 2K you can bring down to 3.7. I have yet to encounter any ICE or EV that has beaten me off a stop. Many also try to pass on highway due to my safe driving, only to look foolish...Am I...

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    No. All cars have the FSD capability, it is litterally just checking acknowledgements to activate once you get it. There is nothing different about cars who add it on before or after.

    Another Model 3 price increase? RWD up by $2K? [posted 03/14/22]

    You can already get a few k more via private sale for people who dont want to wait for a 2022, but yes this helps with depreciation a little for those who took delivery earlier this year.

    FSD Add still old price

    So it is important to remember that it is in Beta. The summon does not work on any roads labeled city road (which most residential streets are). The autolane change is cool, however, not fool proof. I had an experience this weekend where the lane was clear and it switched, but a car behind cut...

    Isn't there a carwash mode you can select on the Tesla? What does that actually do if you click it?

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    Per the order agreement, it says they can cancel after 90 days. Maybe you can sell it to someone who wants one now.

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    So is that the old battery? The SA thought it had AMD, not sure how they pulled it if not on window sticker.
  37. N

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    I was contacted to discuss details about pickup including financing, trade, etc. I mentioned insurance couldn’t locate vehicle yet based on VIN and they said sometimes window sticker helps so they emailed it.
  38. N

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    So got the window sticker emailed for my M3LR, MSM, black interior, Aero, no FSD, Vin 162lowlastthree and it says microprocessor controlled lithium ion battery. SA said it has AMD but will confirm at pickup in like 10 days.
  39. N

    Possible to get check from Tesla with trade/sale?

    So to answer my own question, when SA called, they did say yes we can cut you a check. It would likely affect tax benefits though, but could be useful info to those where Tesla is highest pretax trade offer or for convenience of just wanting to do everything same day.

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    I really wish it would stay with purchaser rather than vehicle. Like what happens if someone has true intentions of keeping vehicle long time, but vehicle totaled in accident? I guess gap would cover initial loss, but then if costs increase a few years from now to 20k then what...

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    So in perusing KBB, the "value" of a used 2021 M3LR with like 150 miles is listed for about 56K (range of 54.5-57.7). If one were to have a new 2022 with AMD chip, do you all think that would carry a premium right now?
  42. N

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    Per the spreadsheet, there was one 162 Vin with intel listed, but i think they marked yes in the second column (battery?). But yes, does seem like a good trend for those interest.
  43. N

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    So gave in and called SA. Was going to accept regardless of chip status. OD 11/15ish, previous hold in Dec after first vin, hold released later that month. EED finally narrowed to two week window late last week with VIN yesterday (162XXX). MSM, Black interior, Aero, no FSD. I call and awkwardly...
  44. N

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    I am in southeast USA and just got assigned a vin of 162xxx today. OD 11/15, MSM, black interior, no fsd, aero. Did have one previous hold in December. Not sure what it will come with, but does not seem like a reject.
  45. N

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    Yes, mine went to a 2 week window a few days ago, followed by the VIN this morning. Hopefully you get yours soon.
  46. N

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    Woke up to a VIN this morning (162xxx). Not sure if previously rejected or any other information. Last night, had to get the Subaru towed after a fuel pump recall that was replaced over the weekend failed (due to suspected faulty install/hose connection?). Was a pleasant surprise this morning...

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    So it seems like 161+ is a good start, but anyone with these VINs and confirmed not to have it?

    Possible to get check from Tesla with trade/sale?

    Just curious if anyone has ever gotten cash from Tesla with a trade rather than credit towards purchase. What if the trade is worth more than the new car, will they cut the purchaser a check like other dealers? Or if most cases, the value is lower, will the give the purchaser the option of a...

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    Also got a window reduction this morning from 2/4-3/4 to 2/7-2/21. My car trade value and financing are both good through mid Feb, so hopeful.

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    If they extend it out and narrow usually unclear. If they bring it forward and shorten like in your case, typically good.
