    Who should buy second Tesla?

    Also have a 3 and a Y coming on 9/8 for my wife. Are you saying if we add the Y to the current account we only get 1,000 miles? I was under the impression that I'd get the 1,000 miles for the referral and also get the other 1,000 for the new car and it would all flow into my current account.

    August/September VIN Notifications and Deliveries

    Yes hopefully yours is coming too. Seems like they come in batches. I did the test drive and ordered online myself about a week later. Alex was my rep - called me right after the order was placed to attach the car to the Princeton location.

    Anyone using the Seasucker Mini Bomber bike rack on their Model 3?

    I have a mini bomber that I use on occasion, usually when I need to bring 2 bikes (my car is Sept 18 build). Have used it 10-12 times over the last 18 mos. I started to mount the fork to the rear trunklid after SeaSucker put out the advisory and have not had any issues at all - knok on wood...

    These are the OEM tires that come with the 19" wheels for the model 3. I bought these brand new from Tirerack and tires include the the road hazard warranty - I think it is transferable and happy to give a copy of the original receipt with the warranty in case you need it. Had to buy these...

    Decent Door Dent - What Am I Looking At $$?

    Same here - had very similar dent right on the crease from what I believe was a shopping cart hitting the door. Took it to a Tesla certified body shop and since I had a low deductible of only $100 I ran it through Geico - they billed Geico $1600 for the repair. No increase from Geico on...

    Store/Service/Delivery Center - Central Jersey - Lawrenceville NJ

    I did drop off first thing in the morning, they told me it should be done late afternoon. Tried calling around 3 and could not get anyone on the line so I Uber'd back over. Was told that the hardware install is a quick process but they tried 3 times to get the software uploaded and it wasn't...

    Model 3 HW3 retrofit questions, wait time, issues

    Exact situation here, have an appointment to fix my horn - 2nd time it has gone out, just makes a meep meep road runner sound now. Also requested HW3 upgrade and scheduled for 2/7. Now if I can only get rid of the rattles coming from what sounds like the rear doors....

    Effect of Acceleration Boost on insurance rates

    I saw another thread about reporting the FSD purchase post purchase and it made me nervous about having it covered if my car were to be totaled. Went onto the Geico app and under the "other" heading put in that I had added FSD software for $3,000. Couple hours later I got a quote from Geico...

    19in tire replacement?

    Thanks. Will try another shop. Should I be concerned that they now put sealant in the tire - will that soak into the foam and cause issues?

    19in tire replacement?

    I see a lot of discussion around people replacing the Michelin 18in OEM tires but not much about the 19's. Got a nail in one of my tires, brought it to a local tire repair shop they said it can't be plugged because of the acoustic foam in the tire. Is this true if the nail wasn't in the...

    Anyone using the Seasucker Mini Bomber bike rack on their Model 3?

    Have had a mini bomber for the past 6 years and have not had significant problems. Love the rack, so easy to take on and off and it is the best solution for me because I don't use the rack that often. Began to use it on the model 3 last fall and mounted it down near the trunk glass with the...

    Should I buy the "full self driving option"?

    NOA is useless in my opinion, it ping pongs in between lanes and just irritates other drivers. For example if you are in the middle lane with 2 cars in front of you it will change to the left lane pass one car then go back to the middle lane and then attempt another lane change to pass the 2nd...

    $1500 Door Ding / Blend Pearl White Paint On Other Door?

    Agree, I pay a lot for insurance so might as well use it. The low deductibles are so cheap that is doesn't pay to carry a high deductible. Through Geico it is only a few dollars difference between a $500 and $150 deductible. I'd be pretty pissed if I had to spend 1600 out of pocket to fix a...

    $1500 Door Ding / Blend Pearl White Paint On Other Door?

    I plan to keep the car for a long while so not worried about this. If sold privately it would be an easy explanation especially with the paper work proving that it was a door ding and not anything major.

    $1500 Door Ding / Blend Pearl White Paint On Other Door?

    Very similar door ding on my car. 1600 to fix through Tesla approved body shop. I had a low deductible so ran it through insurance.

    Does your Model 3 sound like a crunching waterbottle?

    So I have read through some other threads on interior rattles and haven't seen what I am experiencing. I am getting a crunch sound, kind of what an empty plastic water bottle would sound like, when I drive over any uneven surfaces or bumps. Almost sounds like it is coming from the pillars in...

    NJ recommended body shop

    Benners in Cranford fixed a small ding in my chargeport and a gouge on the hood which included painting a good portion of the hood. Came out great, for me it was easy because they are a Geico ARX approved and Tesla approved so was a quick drop off and they have a Enterprise desk on site and...

    NY/NJ Waiting Room

    Picking up in Springfield, NJ Wed morning. Was contacted a couple weeks ago by someone in NV about verifying some info, but could not get a delievery date assigned.

    Bike rack that fits a Model 3?

    Second the Seasucker, you can mount on the trunk lid with the rear wheel on the roof, so you are not lifting up the bike too high and keeps the center of gravity lower and the bike a bit more shielded from the wind. I have had one for past 6 years, it's great, no problems and goes on and off...

    Strange Delivery Communication...

    I have had no contact at all since configuring 6/27.

I responded back immediately and have heard nothing since. I tried calling and got the google...

    East Coast Waiting Room - AWD - Non-Performance

    Let's talk financing rates

    Also should have added, the original pdf doc that was sent by Allegacy didn't have the rate/term on it, I think they do this by design,I was told of the rate on the phone by the rep. I edited the PDF and added the rate in when sending to LS.

    Fit bike in trunk

    I haven’t tried but looked at one yesterday at the Cherry Hill, NJ service center. I don’t think a road bike will fit without laying the back seats down. I usually pop both wheels off and put the bike in the trunk I don’t think that will work either, the wheel wells come too far into the trunk.
