    Tesla Referral Program

    I finally got a delivery from Tesla containing two carry-ons, my second weekend bag, and finally the owner's jacket (non-thermal) for my wife so we can be über nerdy and wear matching Tesla jackets :) I have no need for the second weekend bag I got. I'm willing to give it to someone who uses my...

    Don't hold your breath. I still have only received one of the two sets I won last year.

    Not necessarily... I have a pending order for a Radio Flyer and I have not received that e-mail. Doesn't matter that much to me, though - the small battery lasts for hours anyway (already have one, kids love it).

    They use the address that's in your contact details in your MyTesla account. You can just log in there to edit it. Also, when they've sent stuff to me, I've received an e-mail about it and I've been able to call the courier company to change the address using the tracking code (so I could get it...

    Tesla Referral Program

    I’m still waiting for the jacket, Arachnids and bag from the October program. I did receive the jacket, bag and Arachnids from the July program. And I got my first Radio Flyer this week as well. Still waiting for two cabin bags as well. And probably some more stuff that I’ve lost count of.

    Tesla Referral Program

    In the last few days I have received a number of notifications about new orders on my phone, which have just turned out to be new notifications for old orders. Probably some issue on Tesla's side.

    Tesla Referral Program

    I have the same feeling. I have one referral in this round, which is an inventory car. I had three in the last round, all of which were inventory cars. Last year I got 20 referrals in half a year, only a few of which were inventory cars. Something feels odd about this pattern.

    My MyTesla-page is also showing two referrals, which is suspiciously low from a historical point of view. I asked a Tesla employee to verify this and he saw two as well.

    Tesla Referral Program

    It's not entirely impossible. In fact, all referrals I have gotten this round so far have been for inventory or demo cars, which means that they haven't been placed through the design studio, but manually through a Tesla salesperson.

    Tesla Referral Program

    Sure, but even if they mean mid-April in Sweden that would mean they shouldn’t be available in North America just yet. It doesn’t take a month and a half to get them here. Also, AFAIK they’re made in the UK, and I don’t know if the ones bound for Europe will have to go to Freemont for painting...

    I just got the following update on the Arachnid wheels from Tesla: Thanks for your patience as we produce and ship your Arachnid wheels. Unfortunately, there have been delays that pushed out our shipping and installation timeline. We are currently tracking to have your wheels delivered to your...

    Oh, now I know where the confusion is coming from :) When I say "the July program" I mean the program that ended in July, while you mean the program that started in July.

    Tesla Referral Program

    I'm still confused. Previously you wrote that you still hadn't received the bag/jacket from the July program, i.e. 4. But maybe you actually meant the October program, phase 5? In any case, they certainly haven't shipped out the last of the phase 4 awards in December, as no one has received any...

    Patience you must have, my young padawan! I still haven't received any prizes from the programs that ended in October or January. I've only received the bag and jacket from the July program. I don't know why it's taking so long but it's the same for everyone, so you shouldn't worry.

    Tesla Referral Program

    It's even worse for us overseas. I'm Swedish and our currency has been very weak against the dollar for some time now, which has lead to multiple price raises. Add the end of free supercharging to that, and all of a sudden it's become very hard to sell Teslas. Somehow I've still managed to get...

    Tesla Referral Program

    I have eight confirmed deliveries and two pending for the program that was between July and October. I also have two cancellations in that program, but they cancelled before the end of the program so I had time to recruit two new. I wouldn't mind a dinner at Elon's :) Also, interestingly...

    I love that they finally give us some insights on the status of our referrals. Not knowing if someone's cancelled and cost you your set of Arachnids is painful. And I'm happy to say I have actually already secured both sets. In the round from May to July I actually have six confirmed delivered...

    Yep, I got a FedEx e-mail today as well. 8.5 pounds heading my way (so probably a jacket and a bag, then). Still no word on the rims. Doesn't matter much to me right now, though - I'll be running on winter tyres until April next year, so that's the earliest I'll be able to switch to my Arachnids...

    Tesla Referral Program

    I managed to max out the two previous programs, i.e. 15 referrals from June to October. A few of them were friends and acquaintances. I also got a couple of referrals after having my car at a car exhibition, where I talked to a few people who were thinking of buying Teslas and helped them with...

    Tesla Referral Program

    My experience is that you'll see the number increase when they've received and processed the deposit. That is, before the order is confirmed and the deposit would be forfeited if the order is cancelled. When paying with card this is usually pretty quick.

    Who has the boasting right to #1 updated to v8.0?

    I'm seeing that a lot of people are starting to get the update now. Anyone in Europe? It would be very interesting to know if they're actually doing it worldwide this time like Elon said (and like he also said when 7.0 was released, but it didn't turn out to be true that time).

    Well, you still get an extra chance to win a Model X P100DL for every referral you make... Also, we still don't know exactly what the reward for 10 referrals is. Maybe it's an all expenses paid trip to the Model 3 part 2 unveil where you'll get to ride in a fully autonomous Model 3! Now that...

    Tesla Referral Program

    What Tesla told me is that you can expect to get the Arachnids about two months after all five of your referrals have taken delivery. For me overseas, that's an inherent delay of at least three months extra since that's the normal delivery time. Also, I suspect a few of my referrals have...

    I can confirm this as well. My referral count also went to six then back to one when I got my first new referral. I e-mailed Tesla about it and they called me up and confirmed on the phone that it's a completely new referral program, and you can win all the prizes all over again.

    Tesla Referral Program

    The fact that you couldn't refer more than 5 and that one single cancellation leads to you not getting the rims is very, very frustrating. I could have gotten way more than 5 referrals in the last program - in fact I had several people who tried to use my link but failed since I had already...

    I got my e-mail during the night. I live in Sweden, so I'm guessing the e-mails to European customers have been sent out now. The big disappointment for me is that I couldn't choose the black Moab bag, for some reason. Also, I found the size chart for the jacket completely useless. Why not give...

    I have asked Tesla directly and they have confirmed: This new round is a completely new referral program with new prizes. You start from zero and you can win bag, jacket and rims even if you’ve already won them all. I think the Moab looks nicer. I figure that I’ll get the new one in the new...

    A quick scan tells me all of you who've received the e-mail about prizes are in North America. Any Europeans who've received the mail? I still haven't.

    Yeah, I think there was a bug on that page. I got five referrals in the last program, but after it ended the MyTesla page actually showed six until I got my first referral under the new program. Then it went back to one. Speaking of the referral program, has anyone heard anything about the...

    No Bass and high pitched whine under hard acceleration

    I don't get why people complain about the base sound system. For a base system, I think it's excellent. I had no expectations so I was very pleasantly surprised. There is not a great deal of bass and pressure, but it really depends on the song. In songs with a lot of bass there is very...

    Autosteer -- how far will it go when locked on to the car in front?

    When driving slowly with a car just in front of you, the option to activate autosteer will appear. When I do, my cruise control speed is set to 30 km/h (~17 mph).

    Autosteer -- how far will it go when locked on to the car in front?

    Yeah, it works like a charm. Too good sometimes. I was held up in traffic on a small, bidirectional road, using the autopilot to keep up, when all of a sudden the car in front of me broke out of the line in order to turn and go back the other way - and my car tried to follow! :biggrin:

    Extreme Winter Poll: Which tires are you using this winter?

    Chains or similar solutions are good for temporary problems - when you get stuck or when you have to climb a particularly steep snowy slope. They're obviously useless for everyday driving in harsh winter conditions. Here in Sweden, winter tires are required by law, but a lot of people still...

    Extreme Winter Poll: Which tires are you using this winter?

    They are still far superior when it comes to braking or cornering on ice, especially smooth ice (which you'll find quite often around here because of the climate). But the studless tires have come a long way, especially in conjunction with modern ESP systems, and the reasons to choose studded...

    Extreme Winter Poll: Which tires are you using this winter?

    I'm in Sweden, and the winters can be pretty harsh (or sometimes pretty mild - it varies a lot). I've almost always gone with studded winter tires for that extra safety margin and predictable behavior when coming across a large patch of ice. It seems especially important where I live by the...

    19" cyclone costs as much as an entire set of 19" base wheels with winter tires.

    Since I'll need winter tires anyway I went ahead and ordered a set of T Sportline TST's. Then I figured I'd put the winter tires on the base 19" rims, and use the TST's with the summer tires. I love the look of the turbine wheels but I don't love the price and I don't really want 21" because it...

    When the speed limit changes, you'll see a sign appear inside the speedometer.

    To Pano or Not To Pano?

    The main reason for me to order the pano was that the cabin just felt so much better with it. Roomier, lighter, just better. The extra headroom and ability to open it up in the summer are just bonuses for me.
