    How often do you floor the pedal?

    A lot of that depends where you live. I have a commute that's about 30 miles and I might see 10 cars between here and there and might pass one somedays. There's a 7 mile stretch where it's 2 lane blacktop, smooth and nobody ever on. Now granted at the end it turns onto a twisty road by the...

    Should I wait to install the Wall Connector?

    That's what I did. No reason not to if you want it and have it. And at $200, that's pretty impressive. I was... $340 if I remember right and that was the 60a breaker, 25' of conduit, mounting, wire and wiring, and I thought I had a steal there. lol I guess if the 2nd bid came in a lot...

    Brand new cars up to date with software?

    I wondered how that happened. I must have done that by accident because I took delivery two weeks ago, then last week got my update, but no 3 camera view. Noticed a couple days ago it was giving it though. I am guessing I swiped at it backing up at some point. Anyways, took me just over a...

    Voice recognition...

    So far going great for me. Mostly I have been using for directions, calls and adjusting the steering wheel (I set it lower than I usually have it when letting the autosteer work as it's a more comfortable position, so will yell at it if I want to adjust it back up and take over and vice versa...

    Taking delivery 3 weeks before battery day...

    I'm kind of doubting any of the battery day stuff will be already in place and being implemented. To have that kind of work going on at their factories would be noticed I believe. My guess is there will be info on future models (how they will keep cybertruck costs down, better powerwall...

    Tesla's Ridiculous Customer Service for Deliveries

    Wow that is crazy... Miy delivery popped up a calendar on the website and I had a 10-14 day window to select any day in there and it was probably a week out from the earliest day to choose when I got it. Only issue was I selected the first day available and a few days before my pickup date got...

    Got my M3 today. Love it. But....

    I don't think you are. Just make sure you report it immediately. We did on site, and the person with the transaction was great. When mine was delivered their was a paint defect on the front bumper. Very small, and they tried to buff it out in their service center where I was taking...

    Picking up a model 3 tomorrow

    Nice! I really wanted blue, but grey was a close 2nd choice for me. Ended up going with ordering one, as I figured for the wireless charging I could wait. Plus it let me take my time selling my vehicles rather than rushing. Also had one small issue. A burr on the paint of the bottom lip...

    How long is "normal" for the first OTA update?

    Mine came a couple hours ago myself. Picked up last Thursday so about 6 hours short of 1 week exactly lol. I think that might have been due to the 32.3 push out though and if there hadn't been a new update, getting to the most recent may have taken longer.

    Traffic Light and Stop Sign Control (BETA) for those that have HW3 and FSD

    I've had that too.. It makes it an odd situation where you are just wanting to inch forward and the car's going "tally ho! 55 mph here we go". And you brake/turn etc and it's beeping and yelling at you as it jerks around the corner lol. So lately I've been mostly just hitting the brake at...

    Did you guys shop around before deciding on the Model 3?

    Yes I did. I've always shopped a LOT before pulling the trigger, I enjoy reading and checking out cars. I ended up changing two vehicles actually. So a few months ago I had a 2013 F150 Lariat, and a 2013 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon. Plus a travel trailer. Well I bought a seasonal...

    How long for delivery after VIN?

    Minnesota here. Got my Vin the same day I got the notice to give them the payment for my purchase and to schedule my pickup (if you are taking a loan I don't think you'd get this). And I'd checked a day or two earlier and it wasn't in the source code of the webpage either, just the...

    Wiki Model 3 Order Tracking Spreadsheet

    So I have an update.. On 8/5/20 got an update on the website calling for payment, and the same day got a text to schedule my vehicle pickup. So pickup will be 8/18/2020, and... Still have the reservation number only. No VIN in the source code either. That would put me at 8 weeks to the...

    Is 8-12 Week Delivery Estimate accurate these days?

    I ordered mine right at the end of June, so after the discount (what got me to pull the trigger) and a week before the July increase on the FSD of $1000). With those two things I decided now or never. I guess it makes sense. If you order in June they aren't bumping up the new price for FSD...

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

    Even without the acceleration boost you aren't finding much that isn't some top performance trim competing, at least through the first 60 or so MPH. I mean 3.9 0-60 is Hellcat with a manual time... with a perfect launch. it's better than a Mustang GT with the performance pack. Sure there's a...

    Former muscle car owner - thoughts and opinions

    Nice thread... Mine should be here in a month or hopefully less. But coming from a muscle/sports car background myself. Owned a 69 and a 2010 Camaro SS, a Mazdaspeed3, VW GTI, Mini Cooper S, a few integra's in the late 90's early 2000's... And loved working on them and adding toys to make...

    Should I buy a Model 3 or wait for the new vehicles with the new battery technology

    I'm going forward. The current model 3 has the range I need, and a price I can afford. And if in 7-10 years or whenever the day I need a new battery arrives and I find out there is a much cheaper replacement one available... Hooray for me! Musk says a new battery is in the 5-7k range for me...

    Is there an Energy-producing (almost) fabric car cover already being produced??

    That is the biggest part. If you want surface area to charge with, your house is a much better option to put it. It's larger and can accommodate much larger simpler panels, it's usually not doing 80 mph behind a semi throwing rocks at it, and it can charge other things if you aren't driving...

    Where do you want a new Supercharger?

    Ray Minnesota (Anywhere around Voyageurs National Park). Nearest Supercharger is 144 miles away. The nearest destination charger of any kind that can be found is at a lodge about 50 miles away. Not on their hot list I am sure, outside of the middle of nowhere national park there, it's not...

    Two Model 3 changes - Beginning of June

    I guess it is preference. I like the wireless charging myself. Less fumbling in the dark to plug my phone back in at night if I get a work call, and while I probably keep my phones longer than some, it seems the phone port and cords tend to wear more and you get to that point where you plug it...

    Tesla loan comparison spreadsheet - auto updates hourly

    Mostly paying cash with selling my vehicle and some savings, but wanted to keep plenty on hand so took out a loan for a bit. Anyways... under 36 month was 1.79%, 37-60 was 2.19%, and 61-72 at 2.29% with Navy Federal Credit Union.

    Wiki Model 3 Order Tracking Spreadsheet

    Glad to hear some are moving quicker. Ordered LR, blue, with FSD black interior, 18" wheels on June 24 (after the price drop, before the FSD price increase). Showed 8-12 weeks. No VIN yet. Not sure what the source code is, but there's nothing I can find. Although I see today delivery is down...

    WOW...Superbowl commercials taking aim at Tesla.

    What is interesting is that now Tesla is moving into the lower cost electric. Sure there's some cheaper, but the Audi, the porsche, the Hummer.. All looking at much higher than the Model 3 and Y and possibly over the S and X even. That said this is awesome. Competition breeds innovation...

    What do you plan to tow?

    Yup the split power at sites would be better. Just seems a lot of money for maybe 2 hour increments on driving and it will limit me to power only sites. At that price I'm into a good heavy duty pickup price range. What I really like about Tesla is how there are almost nothing you have to...

    What do you plan to tow?

    I guess this is my worry with the Cybertruck for me personally. And I'll preface this by saying every vehicle isn't for everyone. A Mazda Miata is a great vehicle, not so much for a family road trip. While it looks like the truck could be their best deal for a lot of people, I use a pickup...

    Model 3 Owners: Who Here Has Trickle-Charging Only/No Home Charging?

    Great to hear this. My panel is in my garage, and I've got a 100amp breaker, which isn't big for the house size. Going up to a 150amp (not quite necessary but close) would be another $1000 with a buddy and permitting. So was hoping when I do buy I could see if I could get by on 120v 20amp (I...
