    How to find a stealth?

    SA is for Sales Advisor. That’s the terminology Tesla decided to use. The same way Walmart uses Associate and Best Buy uses Agent. DA is for Delivery Advisor. DC is for Delivery Center. SC could either be Supercharger or Service Center. And your local Sales Advisor is correct. Tesla recently...

    How to find a stealth?

    Nope! Homelink now costs $300, no mats, no grocery clips, no dead pedal, no lights in the door pockets and no red roof glass color when wet!

    How to find a stealth?

    Colorado huh? Nice! Wish I had a good job somewhere a little south of IL. This state is nothing but money-hungry. Enter IL from any direction, “Welcome to IL, please pay toll”. Exit the state, ‘Thank you, please pay toll”! Ugh!

    How to find a stealth?

    You are correct. The tax credit not so much as it depends on an individual’s tax return but the extra accessories absolutely saved $500.

    How to find a stealth?

    Aside from that, the prices then were definitely expensive. For example, when I bought mine in Dec 2019, the price was $35k for Base Model 3 and $14.7k for Performance (Stealth) on top of that, instead of the $18k they have you listed at. Also, we should meet up sometime for coffee. You are not...

    “More Valuable” Stealth Performance Model 3 Unicorn

    It says right on the website. With PUP free optional upgrade, you get Track and 162mph max speed. If you don’t select the PUP option, you don’t get that. Of course, all non-physical upgrades like increased speed and Track Mode are software locked.

    My A-Z Guide to Model 3

    Update: Heads-up! They have just increased the price of the Stealth Performance. I paid $2k over the price of a Dual-Motor Long Range for my Stealth in Dec 2019 but now that the Acceleration Boost upgrade is available for that same price, the Stealth’s price was increased to justify the...

    How to find a stealth?

    Thank you! I wish color choices were free. If they wanted to charge, they should have kept red as the only paid color. Besides that, I love everything with the Tesla. CS is always clueless. They should start recruiting from here. I paid $2k extra for my Stealth and though I wish I had gotten...

    What happens after $100 deposit?

    My A-Z Guide to Model 3 Hope the above link finds you all the information you will need. For Insurance, I went with State Farm and pay about $110 per month.

    How soon before I apply for financing?

    My A-Z Guide to Model 3 The above link might help you. To be honest, Tesla has switched to overseas deliveries and so, you will probably not see your delivery till March. Appy now and you will end up with another credit inquiry once the offer expires and a potentially higher APR approval rate...

    Why we bought a Tesla Model 3 instead of a ...

    Welcome to the club but that video does not help your cause one bit. It sounds so scripted and too Ad’sy. Reading off of a script will do you no good. You need to speak your heart out. I couldn’t help but get reminded of “Hi, have you ever found yourself in ...” type of audio advertisement when...

    Request Valet Mode Enhancement and Car Wash Mode

    Often times when I valet out my car to a porter, I have to go make a number of changes to my settings and then undo the shenanigans when I get my car back. The same thing will probably happen if I ever need to go through a car wash (not that I ever will). It would be so much helpful if the...

    The biggest surprise I have after two weeks of Model 3

    Never seen a thread where the OP got bashed so much! Lol!
  18. Brother T

    Anyone got pics of the hatchback open?

    You missed his inquiry by a mile there, bud! He meant to ask if the rear hatch will have a motor to open and close it automatically instead doing it manually like the Model 3. I hear the hatch with completely open and close without the help a\of any human.

    How to find a stealth?

    Pretty much my case as well. Switched to Stealth and took delivery a couple weeks later.

    How to find a stealth?

    True. However, one does loose the 980 motor in the rear and a half a second faster 0-60mph acceleration while paying the same price.

    “More Valuable” Stealth Performance Model 3 Unicorn

    The rear motor is 980 in Stealth/Performance and 990 in the LR AWD. The front are the same 980 in all three. From what I know, the 990 is been in service for the past few months now.

    Call all delivery centers at our location and ask. They will make access to various inventory cars than what you will see.

    Trade-In Not Paid Off Yet?

    Tesla is, and I’m glad, not like other dealers. In fact, they are not even dealers, they are like Amazon - order and receive. Hopefully, they will get better in this “pay off trade-in quickly” department. It usually takes 10-14 days for the account (of your trade-in’s financial institution) to...

    No panic button?

    There are two separate buttons on the app for flash and honk and they both only beep/flash once. I was hoping for a button or quick launch shortcut that would activate panic function to keep beeping and honking at the mothaf** that is trying to invade my space.
  26. Brother T

    Trade-In Not Paid Off Yet?

    You are asking a bit too late there, buddy, if your payment is due on Jan 01. I would advise you to pay the payment right now if your lien holder doesn’t allow any grace period and avoid having any fees incurred and an unnecessary hit to your credit due to late payment. That car is still under...

    My A-Z Guide to Model 3

    Thank you. Also, I would place the order right away and keep looking out for the Stealth by calling the two showrooms in Scottsdale, the delivery center, and other showrooms/delivery centers in the six states surrounding Arizona to hunt down that Stealth and drive to go get it from there instead...

    My A-Z Guide to Model 3

    Do that test drive and post here of your experience. Like I have stated in another thread, if the LR AWD gets you to the Soprano-level scream, the Stealth/Performance will enable you to achieve teenaged girl’s high-pitch shrill! I guarantee you that you will never look at your Model 3 the same...

    No panic button?

    How does one invoke a panic function (honking and flashing lights) like one would by pressing the red button on the key fob of other cars? Also, it snowed and frosted today and I noticed there is no way to heat the LED headlight lens. Does Model 3 have a heat element that defrosts the headlight...

    My A-Z Guide to Model 3

    Sounds like a thrilling and exhilarating experience! From what I know, the Model 3 pulls a maximum of 48A. Having 100 amp circuit is a great way to Futureproof your Tesla charging experience, in case you buy another Tesla. Also, if you think the long range version floored you, wait till you get...

    Easier to avoid speeding tickets in Tesla?

    Easiest way to avoid a ticket is to outrun them. You have a Tesla with instant acceleration.

    My A-Z Guide to Model 3

    Well, Delivery Centers are also showrooms. Some showrooms have a Service department. As far as ordering, you really won’t have much incentives after the federal tax credit expires. So, if you want a stealth, which I highly recommend, then just keep calling many delivery centers until someone...

    Backup Cam doesn't adjust exposure for night?

    Tesla told me that the cameras are not “night-vision cameras” and need an external light to show images. But the 5 cars I had before the Tesla were not night-vision either but lit up fairly well in dark areas.

    Autopilot Calibration Day vs Night

    Mine calibrated within 8 miles. Luckily I didn’t need to take delivery at night.

    Backup Cam doesn't adjust exposure for night?

    I took delivery two days ago, and mine does the same thing. I though it is because I only crank my screen brightness to 5%. It it does appear something is wrong now that you have brought it up too. Please let us know when and how you resolved this issue.

    My A-Z Guide to Model 3

    I am a happy owner of Model 3 Stealth Performance. I found out about the "silent but deadly" nature of EV cars through the movie Stuber. After a little research, I came across Tesla Model 3 and instantly loved it. So, I ordered it on Oct 31, 2019. However, going from order day to the day after...

    Autopilot Calibration Day vs Night

    When you first take delivery of your Tesla, the cameras need to calibrate themselves before AP becomes active. They are not calibrated from the factory.

    Insurance on a Stealth VS LR AWD

    VIN does reveal a Stealth to be Performance for 2020 models. But my insurance company has my Stealth as “Tesla Model 3 EV”. Trust me, once you drive off in a Stealth, that acceleration will make you forget whatever extra chump change you would be paying. I drove a LR AWD and a Stealth and the...

    LR AWD Performance (Stealth TM3) Waiting Room

    Download the delivery checklist and look at videos on YouTube and get yourself prepared. Also, when you go to bed and before falling asleep, visualize (with your eyes closed) each and every nook and corner of the Tesla in your mind and touch everything. Memorize the pattern.

    Autopilot Calibration Day vs Night

    Ok I have a strange question. I’ll be taking my delivery in the evening and by the time I leave the Tesla Delivery center, it will be dark outside. How accurately will the autopilot function work if it is calibrated at night vs during the day?
  45. Brother T

    Does this mean my delivery is near?

    Is that in Chicago area?

    My trade-in quote disappeared!

    I had a trade-in that was being appraised for a whole month. But when I went to signup for Tesla Financing, I could see the trade-in value being subtracted from the cost. I got approved for the loan and now I don’t see the trade-in value at all. Also, the trade-in quote was still in being...
