    Why the fuck are there 14 egg yolks in the first one?

    [–] Tesla Track Day at the NC Center for Automotive Research in Garysburg, NC, my first time on a track πŸ˜ŽπŸš— striatedglutes 5 points ago in TeslaModel3

    Doesn't look like they have any more Tesla track days on the schedule soon. How'd you find out about this one?

    I see the $175/car/hr price, but can you just roll up during the day and drive?

    [–] [Discussion] Tesla's Test Drive Policy striatedglutes 1 points ago in teslamotors

    Bring back the referral program, but it’s for current owners to give test drives to strangers. Owners have ratings and are vetted like Uber/Lyft. Tesla pays every owner $50 or whatever per ride (put some restrictions so people don’t game it). If a rider purchases there are some tiers of better rewards or a multiplier on the dollars with a cap or something.

    Seems obvious. Maybe there is a catch I don’t know about. Would that solve the sales restriction BS?

    As a mid-range RWD owner in the US, I can confidently say no AWD MR option ever existed in the US.

    Yes, but it won't get you on an official Tesla map.

    Looks like a used, overstuffed $300 couch from rooms to go.

    Through iOS Shortcuts and Siri, you can do crazy shit. I can't find the thread right now, but search this subreddit if you have an Apple Watch and you'll find it.

    You should post to r/personalfinance, but here are things you didn't mention (besides what everyone else already said):

    • What is your tax situation? Will you be able to take advantage of the tax credit? If you do not know exactly how this works and are just assuming, you should ask a professional to confirm.
    • What is the private party value of your VW? Are you comfortable selling it before buying the 3? Or can you float the cash to make the down payment before you sell it and then sell to recoup the cash? Or are you going to be forced to take the trade-in value? Are you OK taking the trade-in value, knowing it may be thousands less than private party?
    • You listed rent and emergency fund, but we don't know what your expenses are or what your current savings rate is. If you will be living "at" your means and not saving (or only saving very little) after buying the Tesla I do not recommend buying it, because you will be unable to replenish your emergency fund should the need arise.
      • If you still want to buy it and this is the case, save up a larger down payment.
    • If you do not plan to get a very high rate of return on your post-tax money investments (read: beat the market even after short term capital gains), then you should max out your 401k as well as a Roth IRA before buying an expensive car. Only then should you consider your free cash flow to use on things like this. This is a million dollar decision over the long-term.
      • If you DO plan on getting that hot hot return and have your business plan in place, what could you have done during your 5 year loan with that money by putting it into your business instead? Are you OK with that projection? I had to answer this question before my own purchase, and I was fine with the answer (although maybe a little bummed every now and then, but then I go for a ride and feel better ;)

    HTH.

    [–] Euro Amber Turn Signals striatedglutes 12 points ago in teslamotors

    USA requires amber in the front to distinguish from headlights, and it makes no requirement on the rear color. Red rear indicators are just what the industry has been making.

    Your link goes to a normal outlet, but the electrician that quoted me something like this in a locking box says that the code mandates an external shut-off switch outside locked boxes. Just FYI, it will add cost.

    [–] trying to crunch the numbers on affordability - NY/US striatedglutes 1 points ago in teslamotors

    Insurance data point: I'm 33 and have a few insurance points due to an at-fault ~18 months ago. I added my Model 3 to my policy as a leisure vehicle and got a rate of 800 for 6 months where my old Prius was at 650. After selling the Prius, the 3 went to 1450 for 6 months as the primary driver and only car on the policy. After talking with my agent, we expect the rate to go down to 900 for 6 months after the points drop off my record.

    Gotcha. Yea I haven’t seen the same issue on my Model 3, thankfully.

    [–] Tesla Daily Discussion - January 27, 2019 striatedglutes 1 points ago in teslamotors

    Dang. Sorry to hear that. Since it’s happening with a new phone I’d expect the service center to be able to do something?
