    Possible to pay without Plaid in 2023?

    I looked, but couldn't find any information newer than 2022 on this. Is there still a way to pay via ACH without Plaid in 2023? I've tried the old workaround where you fail at finding a bank in Plaid on the App, but now all it does is prompt me to pay by wire (which I can do, but I'd rather pay...

    First loan payment not due until 30 days after delivery?

    Is this true? I've been trying to get a hold of my bank guy for a week or more and he's either not answering the phone or out of the office. I managed to get him the info and he said he would pull my credit and get back to me on rates. That was last Friday... My delivery is this Saturday and...

    For those hesitant to give Plaid your credentials when paying...

    I recently used Plaid to pay the final balance on my 21 M3 LR. I was not going to give Plaid my banking credentials (user name and password) but found a work-around that uses the usual ACH info. You can close the "select your bank" dialog box, using the X in the upper right corner. You'll be...

    payment questions

    Do Canadian buyers have to pre-pay for the car prior to delivery, or can they just bring a bank draft on the same day? Also, since the deposit is "fully refundable" but new cars are no longer eligible for returns, does that mean any payment beyond the initial deposit is non-refundable?

    Enter Payment Information

    We have a MY RWD reservation and it is allowing us to put our payment information in now. Since there are now RWD produced I'm assuming this doesn't mean too much. But, as this is our first Tesla, I'm a little unsure on the process. We have decided yet if we will trade our current car in to...

    My MX failed FW upgrade from 42.2 to 46.x last week, and by failed FW upgrade I mean the car didn't power up. The only things that worked were the doors and windows, nothing else. Once it was towed, I get a call from the SC who said I need to pay for the diagnostics (175$/hr) since the...

    Can't change

    Like many, I configured and ordered at the end of June as soon as I could select the AWD option. I initially chose financing for payment method, but a couple of days later changed it to cash payment (after reading somewhere that choosing cash payment would bump you up in line for delivery). But...
