    Check the other side of your temp tag. They sometimes put another one on the back with extended dates.

    If not, they should be able to email you a new one.

    Yep. when I got my MX in late March, they gave me a 2 temp tags good for two months. Ended up getting my plates in mid July, or about 1.5 months after the temps expired. Thought I was the only one with that problem.
    Apparently Tesla works with a third party company, and most delays are because of them and “not something tesla has anything to do with”

    No. They actually gave me the second month temp tag with delivery. Once they expired, no matter how much I emailed, they refused to give me a temp tag by giving indirect excuses like "I'll have to speak to my manager, and he is out on vacation for the next week."
    I then requested a loaner so I could drive without being paranoid about getting pulled over and getting a ticket... still no luck.

    It was once I told them that If I did get a ticket, I would request that they cover it since I had been emailing for the past 5 weeks. I was then sent a plate within 4 days

    I had two separate temp tags expire while waiting for my plates to come in for my X.
    Both times, I simply emailed my DS and they overnighted a new tag to me.
    Seemed like my plates were never going to get here.
    Like most things Tesla, you just need to be patient...

    Yes patience is key here. I also had my fair share of problems-although not as big as the windshield. There had been minor paint scratches across the car that led them to keep the car for over 2 weeks total within first 2 months. But hopefully it should only get better from this point on.
    Best of luck!

    I've never had a dealer get my tags for me. I've always had to go to the DMV myself. This seems bizarre to me!!

    I would call your Owner Adviser and discuss it with them. I had this exact same issue when dealing with my purchase as well. I really don't know what the policy is supposed to be but mine said to just be patient and wait for the plates to arrive. If for any reason I got pulled over because of the expired tag, which you can't see through the rear window anyway on an X because of the tint, that Tesla would pay for the ticket.

    Not saying I really like that idea as I would still get the ding on my driving record, but I think an officer would be understanding if I explained that the new plates just haven't arrived yet. Getting the tags does show that you have sent in the necessary paperwork and funds to get the plates.

    I will say I was lucky as the last day mine were set to expire the plates showed up. Also was leaving the very next day on a road trip with the car so it came at the perfect time.
