    2018 Model 3 LR RWD FSD. White with Black Interior. 24,500 Miles. Northern CA.

    wow did you even drive the car lol? 24k miles for a 2018 is super low... This is a great deal for someone to jump on.

    Take Over 2022 Model 3 Finance 1.5k miles MSM White seats 1.99% rate at bank

    That's an amazing rate being offered by that bank/credit union... I don't even know how they are able to do that... the current FED rate isn't even that low. Wouldn't they be losing money? Unless they borrowed a ton of money when rates were low and just held on to it and are offering it now...

    Sold High Mileage Model 3 for sale at super low price of $24,990

    Damn if that sale falls through let me know.. We were interested in having a second car around for the rare times we need it and for quick trips around town.. This would have been perfect at that price point.

    refreshed Model X hit and run - Need help finding a part

    That's it thank you! How do I place the order from Tesla? Do I call the SC with the part number or do I have to fill out the form on this website? seems to be for shops.

    New purchase option - Steering Wheel

    Love my Yoke and would not give it up for anything now. After quickly getting used to it.. Round wheels look like old dated tech to me now. I love the look and the feel of the yoke. Even looking at the picture in on the website the new interiors look horrible to me with a regular wheel.

    refreshed Model X hit and run - Need help finding a part

    I got tapped from behind while at the light the other day. luckily it wasn't too bad.. Just a few scratches on the diffuser and a cracked reflector. the person went around me and took off.. Unfortunately the new software update killed my SSD drive and it wasn't working so no dashcam footage...

    2022 Tesla Model 3 Lease Takeover (RI/New England/Boston area)

    I've been looking for a lease to transfer in to.. But this payment seems really steep to me for a lease on a model 3. paying that much monthly you might as well be financing to own or sell later on.

    is FSD Beta being rolled out to subscribers yet?

    Awesome, thanks for the info

    is FSD Beta being rolled out to subscribers yet?

    I haven’t seen any updates on this. But if I’m running software version 2022.44.25.1 would I get FSD beta if I were to subscribe? And is it like instant or an undetermined amount of time before you get it after opting in?

    Firsthand comparison from an owner of both, between the Rivian SUV and Tesla Model X. The only EV 7-seater SUV's available.

    I saw the pickup truck from a distance and it was the side profile and the back.. I actually don't mind the look of the truck (with the exception of the front)... But yeah maybe you're right, seeing it in person up close might change my view on it.

    Calling 6 seat Model X owners with kids (teenagers)

    Anyone who has ever gone in to my 3rd row always goes through the middle. I don't think I've ever slid the captains chairs forward... Only when I was testing the buttons at the beginning. My kids are smaller than yours, but they always go through the middle... So do any adults that have ever sat...

    Firsthand comparison from an owner of both, between the Rivian SUV and Tesla Model X. The only EV 7-seater SUV's available.

    Damn the Rivians look like they are amazing vehicles with some really cool little quirks and features... Very well built too.... But I just can't get pas the look... The SUV looks like a boxy 1980's range rover to me and i am not in to that look at all. And that front end good god that is...

    Question for Current Refreshed Model X Owners - Upgrade

    Totally worth it in my opinion if you can swing it financially. Whenever I see a pre-refresh interior it looks really dated now..... Having access via the app is a major plus for me. I threw my keyfobs in a drawer the day I brought the car home and have not taken them out. The difference in...

    Should I get rid of my LR for a Plaid?

    I say don't let your pets hold you back from owning your true dream vehicle.. seems like your only issue is the seating of the dogs. I'm not a pet owner so I don't know the feeling but I certainly would not let a pet hold me back from getting what I really want.

    Refreshed 2021/2022 Model X Owners Thread

    More like a couple of months but point taken.... Price increases aren't just about demand, Elon made it pretty clear that it's due to inflation and rising material costs. Prices will stop rising once inflation is under control.

    Your brother's mobile connector must have been defective. We are currently staying in our Tampa property for the summer where we don't have a garage... I have a nema 14-50 outlet in the driveway.... we have been using the mobile charger out there for a month and have had some gnarly rain...

    Refreshed 2021/2022 Model X Owners Thread

    If you want a model 3 early next year I would say put your order in now before there's 20 more price hikes..... At the rate things are going you'll end up paying for your M3 what you paid last year for your X.

    I used this and it worked like a charm: https://tsportline.com/products/t-sportline-tesla-wheel-touch-up-paint Make sure to get the gunpowder color I also used an 80 grit sandpaper to smooth out the curb rash area, then painted and it looks like new.

    Refreshed Model X - aftermarket wheels.

    I'm waiting for the Martian Wheels MW05 to come out in 22" for the Model X.... the 22s should weigh about the same as the stock 20's from Tesla. These are the 20" on the Model S:

    Ordered MX Plaid yesterday and being asked to pickup today

    The more likely scenario is that someone couldn't get their financing in order or realized they couldn't afford the car. But it seems like you don't want it right now so you are going with the other scenario lol.

    What are MX Plaids realistically selling for?

    Yes the plaids are easily selling for 150+ currently. the price increases coupled with the long waiting times, have people paying a hefty premium to get their hands on one.

    Refreshed 2021/2022 Model X Owners Thread

    I think the point he was trying to make is that the cars DO NOT have the airbag horn installed and this was a false promise or outright lie by Elon.
  36. JER85

    Refreshed 2021/2022 Model X Owners Thread

    Yeah I kind of figured this... Usually on cars with the horn in the middle there is a little bit of give when you mash it which activates it... On the Yoke its very rigid and there is no give at all when you press on it.... After noticing this I pretty much gave up on expecting this feature...

    Refreshed 2021+ Model X and Model X Plaid waiting room

    The monthly payment is so close between a lease and financing when it comes to Tesla's that it doesn't make sense to lease... Plus there is no buyout option at the end... and Tesla's hold resale value so well that financing and then selling is a no brainer.

    I could tell you that with no VIN they won't be able to tell you anything that you don't already know.... They literally read off your order screen verbatim until you get assigned a VIN. Once you have a VIN its different, then they are able to track the car and get more info that we can't see.
