    What does the chrome delete feel like...

    I am getting it done in tandem with a partial PPF, ceramic coat and wheel powder coating, so ended up not being expensive to just have the shop manage the chrome delete.

    What does the chrome delete feel like...

    A bit of an odd question, but I just realized I have no idea how the chrome deleted areas feel post-delete. I am getting a satin delete in a couple of weeks and am just sort of curious as to if they feel a particular way, specifically on the door handles. Thanks in advance for entertaining...

    So an update on what I ended up deciding on-- going to take my car to a shop in Milwaukee and leave it there from this Saturday through the 26th, so 10 days total. I am getting... Full front PPF + doors + rockers Ceramic Coating on the entire car Red Caliper covers with Tesla engraved into...

    If I do full front how noticeable is it that part of the car has PPF and part doesn't? Is there a visible line or difference in appearance?

    Model Y Chrome Delete Style

    I am likely chrome deleting my new Model 3 soonish and would like to choose the material closest to how Tesla does or would do it. I see that the Model Y is showing with a chrome delete on the Tesla site-- any idea what material would be the closest to what they will likely use? To clarify...

    PPF - Do I Really Need It?

    Thanks, this is helpful. Think I found a good shop a city over that will do PPF and Ceramic coating for $6000 total (for entire car). I may just bite the bullet and do it. Even having the car for one day without it has stressed me out to no end.

    Apologies if this has already been covered but a few Google searches didn't produce much in ways of this specific issue. I was connected to wifi through my phone and the download was completed (my car made a ding noise) and the progress bar is all the way at the end, however it still says...

    Borrowing Public WiFi...

    Where do those of you who don't have WiFi in your apartment garage or whatever your situation is go for a good public WiFi connection? Running through a tethered connection to my phone, but that will kill my data plan long term. Tried Whole Foods this morning but their signal doesn't seem...

    MSM - Show me pictures of your car today!

    Ah so true. Took delivery of my Model 3 this morning and by the time I got back to Madison from Chicago my poor new Tesla was covered in sleet, mud, and ice. Going to take it to a touchless wash tomorrow since it looks like it should be sunny...!

    Stealth Performance M3s in stock - Raleigh NC

    One of the reps I talked to in Chicago said it was their understanding that they aren't making any stealth / sleeper Model 3s with white interiors-- was a major bummer since the interior is a must for me.

    Thanks! Do you know what that clearish circle between the front and rear doors is? I've seen it on almost every picture of Model 3s. Does it serve a function?

    PPF - Do I Really Need It?

    I really appreciate everyone's feedback--- it does seem like there a lot of perspectives, all valid. For the time being I have scheduled a full front wrap for January (the earliest the most reputable shop in Madison can do it). We will see if sometime before then I change my mind either...

    2020 Model 3 and differences from 2019

    Practically identical. Maybe some minor minor adjustments (like no bag clips in frunk) but if you found a good match I would go for it. Some have made the point that resale value may be higher with the 2020 next to the name, but hard to say at this point since there really isn't any difference...

    LR AWD Waiting Room

    Interesting... so if I live in WI, but am picking up my car on Monday in Chicago, what options do I have for how I pay them day of? Does anyone know if I can just write a check for the amount owed upon delivery or does it have to be a direct wire transfer?

    PPF - Do I Really Need It?

    It seemed high, but after calling a few shops they seemed to be all around that price. Which shop in Chicago are you referring to? I have a call in to Chicago Auto Pros and am waiting for a callback. Part of the issue with getting it done in a different city is figuring out how to get back to...

    PPF - Do I Really Need It?

    I know the general vibe on the forums is yes... but I am wondering if there are some alternative perspectives on this or if PPF is just absolutely the right move. In Madison, WI I am being quoted between 5K-7K for a full wrap with 1-2 weeks in the shop, with openings starting in January. I am...

    Model 3 LR delivery - question

    For real? They just gave me two days that I am out of town-- I am going to call tomorrow to see if they can arrange it on the third day. I highly doubt they will switch my car to someone else.

    My new hobby -- tezz.la watching ..

    hey! Sorry, should have clarified what I meant. From my time using both tools I found Tezz.la to update more quickly when inventory came in / out. Maybe by 30ish minutes or so? Maybe a bit less. Thanks for creating your tool though-- the text notifications ended up being the thing that got me...

    You can filter by Europe (via the menu on the left) and then in advanced config set which countries to include.

    My new hobby -- tezz.la watching ..

    Tezz.la is definitely the most accurate, but https://ev-cpo.com/hunter/ has the ability to set configs and have them text and email you the second their system picks it up. It comes with their premium membership, but they have a two week free trial. Worth a shot!

    LR AWD Waiting Room

    I called a showroom in Baltimore this am after I saw someone post that there were P3Ds coming in and they said they had a handful. I imagine they went fast, but fingers crossed you can get the scoop from a post here and call in to ask next time a batch comes in!

    Just grabbed one that is just a state away! Will need to cancel my custom order, but this was an exact match, 2020 model, and should be able to be delivered soon!

    Wiki Model 3 Order Tracking Spreadsheet

    Ordered on 10/25 - LW AWD. SA said yesterday that he thinks there is a good chance it will be delivered before December 17th (when I leave town through the end of the year). Really hoping so, that tax credit would be nice. WI doesn't offer any other incentives so it is that or nothing.

    20 inch Wheels in Practice

    Hey all, Ordered a LR AWD with Aero wheels, but am considering grabbing a P3D+ if one shows up in inventory that matches the other things I am looking for. My main concern is the comfort level difference I have heard about when compared to the 18s or even the 19s. I live in Madison, WI so...

    No VINs in October?

    That is a fast turnaround with the VIN! Seems like it will come in way earlier than the 5-9 weeks they are saying now (though you may have ordered in the 2-3 week period).
  42. Type1

    LR AWD Waiting Room

    Does getting a VIN assigned have any relation to when delivery will be? I know when you are within striking distance of the estimated delivery it matters, but using this an example, does the VIN assignment mean it may come before the 5-9 weeks or just that they are scheduling what car you will...

    A bit late to the party, but in the waiting room nonetheless.
