Happy wife Happy life

Woohoo we are Officially Tesla owners!
Wifey loves it, I love it, kids love it too. I will be installing all the stuff I bought for it tomorrow. Man, stereo is off the hook as well as other bells and whistles. BEST car ever purchased, and we had quite a few cars over the years.

vmulla | 2019年11月10日

Congrats :)

Glad that the issues you reported are behind you.

jallred | 2019年11月10日

Congrats! and Enjoy!
in early 2019 they came with USB cables. No idea if they still do.

Pg3ibew | 2019年11月10日

Congrats. You will need your own phone charging cables.
Post some pics of the car.

WhiteWi | 2019年11月10日

No cables in our.
@vmulla they adjusted rear door, touch up paint chip and scratch ended up to be just dirt mark )) It looks prefect and super sexy. Wife said she even likes regular wheel caps bc it looks different.

WhiteWi | 2019年11月10日

I personally like that I can spy on her via Tesla app ))) hahah

WhiteWi | 2019年11月10日

Didn't have time to take more pics, got dark pretty quick. Tomorrow will post more pics. White on white is pure sex )

Congrats, I like the aero covers also but you should know if you leave them on a while they rub on the wheels and do permanent damage to the paint.

Pg3ibew | 2019年11月10日

We have the White on White as well!!! AWESOME!!!

Just remember that it goes both ways ;)

WhiteWi | 2019年11月10日

By the way car is on V9 firmware

WhiteWi | 2019年11月10日

I am just kidding, we have no secrets from each other. Happily married for 16 years.

Bighorn | 2019年11月10日

You can turn off remote access.
Congrats! You’ll never covet Hyundai again.

raqball | 2019年11月10日

However...? I remain SO very happy to NOT have a Wife. H-A-P-P-I! Happy!

Shortly after we got our car my wife and three of her friends took off on a girls day out. It was my first opportunity to use the location feature and when I opened the app all the car doors were open. Soon, each one closed and the car started moving. It was totally unexpected but fun to see.

walnotr | 2019年11月10日

And congrats on your wife’s car. You will be fighting over it before you know it!

You won’t be able to wipe that silly grin off your face! Welcome to the fun car club.

I believe it was the late advice columnist Ann Landers who said:

Hahaha. Good line.
That said, Happily married 30 yrs myself.

SamO | 2019年11月10日

Great news. Welcome to the club.

jebinc | 2019年11月10日

Congrats WhiteWi. Why are you on the forum and not in your 3?! The entertainment and humor here can’t be that good, can it? ;-)

WhiteWi | 2019年11月10日

Will take it for a spin tommorow once kids are out to school )))

cyberrider77 | 2019年11月10日

Congratulations our friend bought a M3 in August. 2 rides and we bought one in car ever, I love it!

WhiteWi | 2019年11月11日

More pics as promised :)

jebinc | 2019年11月11日


Nice pics! Love the right truck sticker; very fitting for this forum! ;-)

andy.connor.e | 2019年11月11日

Thats one happy wife! (life)

WhiteWi | 2019年11月12日

Tested out 3rd party Xbox one joystick and it worked just fine. By the way I can't stop looking at the car in garage it so beautiful )))

Shesmyne2 | 2019年11月12日

Welcome to the family!

Enjoy the ride.

Still Grinning ;-)

spuzzz123 | 2019年11月13日

@whitewi if your cellphones support wireless charging, suggest you get wireless charging pad instead of the little charging cables. The cables were a pain in the arse. I bought the taptes version. I’m sure others are fine too.

WhiteWi | 2019年11月13日

We don't use wireless charging. But thanks for the recommendation

WhiteWi | 2019年11月13日

By the way matte screen protector from
Is super easy to install and looks great plus reduces glare and fingerprints.

jallred | 2019年11月13日

When I need to charge my phone I use a cord plugged in behind the center console. It’s normally for those in the rear seats but its long enough to reach any seat. Works better for me then that front console thing.

WhiteWi | 2019年11月13日

Yeah, I have prrerry good battery on my phone and wife too plus she charges at work. No need for charging in the car unless it's a road trip and then it's my SUV )

billtphotoman | 2019年11月13日

Congratulations and I am happy the car meets the WAF (Wife Approval Factor). My wife likes my model 3 but made me swear on a stack of bibles not to win a Darwin award by abusing Autopilot.

WhiteWi | 2019年11月13日

But major advantage of Tesla is long range and SC network that makes it very tempting to try long trips. I'm just not sure if 5 people (2 adults and 3 kids) will have comfortable space for it. But we will see ;)

WhiteWi | 2019年11月13日


AZjohn | 2019年11月13日

Thanks for sharing all your excitement @WhiteWi. I hope my wife is as happy whenever our order is delivered.
PS: I'm sure I will sneak into garage to look at our M3's also :)

gballant4570 | 2019年11月13日

A question for the forum: How long before we read on here that WhiteWi is considering getting another Tesla? And perhaps wonders if he should wait for the Model Y?

Personally, I am waiting for the Tesla pickup - but my wife has pretty much stopped driving, so no time pressure from that direction......

jebinc | 2019年11月13日



Give it a few weeks....

jimglas | 2019年11月13日

@WhiteWI: "No need for charging in the car unless it's a road trip and then it's my SUV"
Why, the tesla is much cheaper for road trips and more fun.

WhiteWi | 2019年11月13日

Hahaha I already told my wife if Tesla pick up will have 500 miles range I am getting it ))) hahah

WhiteWi | 2019年11月16日

So Far Tesla exceeded all our expectations. Just amazing car, so nice to have EV and don't worry about range. No complains about wiper control from wife, she had questions about blind assist which I explained and show her how it works and now she is good. She was afraid with one pedal driving for whole one time driving and no loves it. All and all is great experience.

Over time you'll realize that even 250 miles of range is comfortable, I see a Tesla pickup in your future.

If topic, I don't think the reveal is a pickup truck in the regular sense.

vmulla | 2019年11月16日

Off topic*

gballant4570 | 2019年11月16日

vmulla, the possible range of the pickup is something I am wondering about. If the EPA range is 300 miles, what is the range while towing a boat trailer? What if the towing range is half the EPA range? I could see that as a possibility, and that is not likely to be revealed in a few days.....

WhiteWi, my response to vmulla above does not at all debate his initial point - for any road trip 250 miles of range is quite sufficient, but I am also with you - the larger the range number the better I like it. However, with EV's (at least today) range is money. How far do you want to go? But in any case, I see another Tesla in my future, and yours as well.

hokiegir1 | 2019年11月16日

But if towing range is half rated, then 500 miles rated would be needed to get the 250 towing range. ;) If we get the pickup (a possibility, but a few years down the road), it would specifically be to tow a 30 foot boat....not exactly the most aerodynamic of driving conditions. To head from Atlanta to somewhere coastal would need that whole 250 towing range, given highway speeds and supercharger distances.

WhiteWi | 2019年11月16日

Good point @hokiegir1

gballant4570 | 2019年11月16日

hokiegir1, you are understanding my own Tesla pickup purchase does appear in my financial plan until 2023, but I am getting very tired of my ICE pickup already. I will have an electric boat that is currently being built by next spring, and that will only accelerate that tiring process - so I will feel growing pressure in my head to adjust that plan after seeing the upcoming reveal.

Waiting until 2023 would perhaps allow a little time for battery tech improvements, etc.... but will I be able to withstand the internal pressure that long? Time will tell....

gballant4570 | 2019年11月16日

It would almost be terrible to pull your electric boat down the road with an ICE pickup.....
