My best Christmas gift ever - a Tesla car

I went 2 pickup my Tesla car today, on Christmas Eve. Perfect timing after 40 days anxious waiting. The stock market closed early at o'clock (Pacific Coast time) Christmas Eve, the scheduled pickup time is 3 pm.

was raining, the wipers started 2 wipe the water. When the rain stopped, the wipers stopped. Magic. When I parked the car and walked away, Tesla automatically locked all doors. Wonderful. When sundown, the lights automatically on. Amazing. No key to open the doors, no key to start the car, no key to open the trunk or hood, a card takes care all of those tasks. Terrific. I have to learn how to charge the battery at a Super Charger station. Charge battery is slower comparing with pump oil from gas station. However, I got 1,000 miles free charge at Super Charger station (from a YouTuber promo code). When I came home, Tesla informed me that I drove 28 miles today. Wow!!

If I was not in the car and a theft try to break the door (without a card), the computer screen will show "I'm watching you". A will come my smartphone "Tesla app" and alert me that someone attempted steal my car.

WiFi is in the car, I can go on internet anywhere. The first month WiFi is free, but from 2nd month on, Tesla will automatically charges $9.99 monthly from credit card. It is good for long distance driving that you charge battery at Super Charge, you can watch streaming movie, YouTube videos on internet while you are waiting battery charging.

When I pickup my Tesla, it was cold. Tesla can warmup my seat or any other seats in the car with 3 different temperatures, Warm, Hotter, Hottest.

Tesla became the most "pet friendly" vehicle in the world. You can set the temperature and leave your dog(s) inside your car while you go shopping. The computer screen will show words "My Owner will be back soon" 76 degrees Fahrenheit. Please see the photo insert.

No oil pump, no dirty hands. No maintenance for motor oil change, no need to add transmission oil, .... save lots of m*ney. Tesla model 3 price is reasonable, it is worth buy the car.

Tesla is the best Christmas g*ft I bought for myself ever. My banker friend said "good choice buy Tesla".

I do enjoy Tesla car. It is wonderful, just spending a little more time on charging the battery. But at "Super Charger" station, the charging go faster than at home.

I hope the coronavirus will dissipate soon, so that we all can have "normalcy" life again. Wish you a happy new year!!

    Welcome to the 21st Century - Technology will expand greatly in the next 5 yrs.
I watch YouTube everyday. Many YouTubers posted videos about their Tesla model S, X, Y, and Model 3. Model 3 is the lowest price among all models but has similar figures and functions. Elon Musk is an intelligent guy. Tesla is "state of the art", "cutting edge technology" electric vehicle. It is very quiet, no engine noise, no maintenance. The only thing is charging battery takes more time than pump the oil at gas station. However, if you charging battery at "Super Charger" station will be a little faster.

Tesla has 8 cameras that including dashcam, rear camera, both side door (the cameras under the mirrors), at driver side door, inside the car. In case of car accident, you can record the actual recording and show to the police and insurance company what was really happened. Is that wonderful?

If I pay additional $10,000, I can get FSD (Full Self-Drive, Autonomous). The car will drive itself, stop at stop sign, stop for pedestrians, dogs, cats, stop for red traffic light, ... It takes right turn, left turn by itself, ... it automatically wipe the window when rain (rain harder, wipers work faster), the wipers stop when rain stop. It knows the speed limit at certain area. It updates your software from your smartphone. Your dogs and cats can stay inside the car, the computer monitor shows "My Owner Will Be Back Soon". You can open your glove compartment by voice, you can play music also voice activated. There are so many things that I have never heard before. I am an old dog learning new trick.

You can pre-heat your car before you come to the door. You can open door, trunk door, front hood door by your smartphone. Tesla give you a card which you can open the door and start the car. The car can charge your two smartphone without an USB cord. Your guests in the back can also charge their 4 smartphones with USB cords. If a theft wants to break-in, the computer monitor shows "I'm watching you", and immediately notify your smartphone and you can record it as evidence to police and insurance company. I joined Tesla auto insurance because Tesla insurance knows their cars better.

I love Tesla, a wonder car. Tesla stock price keeps higher and higher. It trades like a high-tech stock not a regular car P/E value.

Many Tesla customers tweeted to Elon Musk for their "constructive comments" and Elon Musk immediately improved the deficits by software for every owner. I drove back my Tesla on Dec 24, today is Dec 31 and I already had 2 free software updates. Tesla notify customer on smartphone and you can just press "update" and takes about 3 or 5 minutes, the update is finished.

Tesla knows my smartphone #'s, email address and credit card #'s, they can "paperless" to handle all the task without print out a paper. I charged battery at Super Charger, no need to insert my credit card, Tesla knows it was me and charge my credit card. I was surprised. After I charged at Super Charger, it will notify my smartphone how many miles of battery charge I charged.

To buy a Tesla. You need to go online to order, no salesman, no price negotiation, everyone has same price, no paperwork. It is new to me. The dealership don't have agent's business card but a text message #'s only. I can only text message, but not calling. The agent will text message back to me.

Yesterday my smartphone received a message from Tesla said "free upgrade software". I pressed a button and it took around 10 minutes to update. Today I drove the Tesla and found out there are some small improvements. Tesla can lots of tasks through the owner's smartphone to upgrade software. It is excellent that so many Tesla in the world can upgrade the software from their smartphone without bring in their Tesla car to service center or mechanic.

According to a YouTuber video said if VIN# center is M, that will be 2021 Tesla edition. If VIN# center is L, that will be 2020 Tesla edition.

Yes, my Tesla VIN# center is M, so I got 2021 upgraded edition and there are many improvements in comparison of 2020 and 2021. The price is the same but 2021 edition is much better.

Hooray!!!

I ordered to buy Tesla on Nov 14th, and all the sudden, its stock (TSLA) started to soar from $408.50 to $695 because it officially enters to S&P 500 on Dec 21st. Incredible.

This Tesla car has autopilot that is similar to cruise control. If I paid ten thousand more, I can get "Fully Self-Driving" (autonomous car).

I have set the car with driving assist, so if I want to change lane when there is another on that lane, the car won't allow me to change lane. If I drive too close to the front car, the car will slow down to avoid "rear-end collision" for safety concern.

Although I am not the sales person for Tesla, but I recommend you to buy Tesla. All the owners of Tesla, enjoyed this EV (electric vehicle).

I can charge my smartphone inside of Tesla without UB charginger cord. Just put on the top and Tesla will charge for you. Never run out of electricity for your smartphone.

Tesla has a big computer screen with GPS maps to guide you to a destination you want to go. There are car images around you, your left lane, your right lane, front car, the car behind you. You can set "assist", you can't change lane if there is a car at next lane. Safety. When your Tesla car too close to the front car, your Tesla will slow down to avoid "rear end" the front car. Safety concern.
