Got my VIN: 7185
Location: North Houston SC
I ordered on 2/18 for Houston delivery - I hope I don’t have to wait much longer for a VIN.
At the risk of sounding like a creeper, would you mind giving a shout out when it's expected to be in? I'd really like to swing by their yard and see Red Multicoat on a Model 3 in person before my configure invite comes up.
Possible first issue or even user error.
Charge port door isn’t opening when parked and pressing the button on the charger. I have to manually reach in the car and open it.
Is it exactly the same as the S? I assumed so and thought the DS said so. Don’t want to chalk it up to an issue as I May be doing it wrong.
I think the red one with Aeros in the back should be ours . We stopped by this afternoon, however, and didn't find one with the right VIN, so I'm hoping they were getting it cleaned up.
I received my VIN four weeks (2/14) after configuring (1/17). Hopefully they have sped that part of since then.
Scheduled for deliver a week from tomorrow (3/15)!
And 2 hours later I have a VIN!!!!!!!!
I configured 2/18, so 17 days from configuration to VIN. My original invite was 1/24.
Thanks for letting us know! Do you remember what color the one was with duct tape?
Could be wrong, but I don't think the charger port door is supposed to open by pressing the charger button on the Model 3. You can press the charge port door with you finger/hand and it'll pop open.
Page 108 of the manual says it should open with the button on the charge cable, make sure it is unlocked:
"With Model 3 unlocked (or an authenticated phone is within range) and in Park, press and release the button on the Tesla charge cable to open the charge port door. "
Well... As I said, I could be and may be wrong. Hopefully a current owner can confirm.
Was that today? There was a closed trailer truck unloading Model 3s this morning when I was picking my car up from service.
1,000% agree. Not even close, actually.
Yes, it is supposed to open when pressing the button on the charger. At least mine did. It’s kind of a distant memory now, but it’s still in there somewhere.
For anyone else in Houston.I configured on 2/22, got VIN yesterday, 3/7, and ISA says my delivery should be around 3/21.

Config 2/14 and waiting. No VIN and nada from Tesla.

There was a thread in the main Model 3 forum where someone found the signal range of the activation shorter than they expected. @Cnasty , how close were you holding it when you pressed the button?
EDIT: Here's a chatty shill demoing it (linked Youtube to FFWD to the important part). Notice that he puts it so close when he presses the button he slightly "ducks" the charger plug out of the way when the port opens. Pretty sure this guy heavily scripted that video, it's got that feel, so he's probably in that close because he needs to be.
Yea I think I watched that review like 3 times in anticipation of my car and STILL dont remember that part. I was right on it and it still didnt pop. I will try it again a couple more times but may need some follow up. I even touched it and it didnt open that way either. The car was unlocked too btw. Hmmmmmmmmm
That is great improvement in overall timing from mine. (Over eight weeks from configuration to delivery, if all goes as plan on 3/15.) Hope that means they've smooth out the process somewhat. Congrats!
The front red one could be mine! Maybe part of the truck is heading for SATX!
