    Color me impressed with Tesla Service!

    Had mobile service come by today (first time for me) and replaced my 2018’s charging port - the motor that opened / closed it died. Received a $0 bill - very happy with the whole experience.

    Vendor Light Harmonic T4D Upgrade Speaker System

    Do you have any comparison data on the OEM equipment?

    Getting ready for a long 3000 mile trip

    The main reason I recommend using ABRP over the built-in Tesla nav for planning is that you can select what % of battery you want to arrive at your final destination with. If you don’t have a charging option available or only a 110v outlet then you may want to charge longer at your last...

    Butterfingers and the mobile charger

    just try to not drop it - there aren't extensive drop test videos like when a new iPhone comes out

    Aero wheel covers on or off?

    Off except for road trips

    Range degradation for 2020.28.6

    Thread title makes it sound like you are linking the degradation to that specific build version.

    Video: Vandalism by Motorcylist

    It looks like he likely thought you pushed him in to the botts’ dots but not moving further to the left and slightly drifting to the right. That’s my guess - still uncalled for.

    SparkCharge the portable charging solution

    Interesting until you see the price

    Model 3 P, LR, SR+ time compare on 400km

    Seems like a lot of trouble when you could have just pulled up ABRP and checked from home. Real world tests are useful but no big shock here.

    Supercharging COVID-19 Restroom Availability

    I'm about to take a trip from Atlanta to eastern NC. Restrooms are my biggest concern. It looks like larger gas stations that cater to trucks have restrooms open such as Pilot / Flying J / Loves. Any other experiences?

    Neural Net Rain Drop Sensor??

    I just assumed it used the front facing cameras. Is there an additional rain sensor?

    Quarantined charging habits?

    I set my car to 50% once I started WFH a few weeks ago. There’s nowhere I need to go that would require more charge or need to leave more quickly than it’d take to get to 100%

    Model 3 HW3 retrofit questions, wait time, issues

    Had an 8am appointment today at the Roswell / Alpharetta location in Atlanta - was in my car by 11am. Only thing done was HW3 - the guy that gave me back my keycard remarked that they are getting much faster - first one was over 5 hours.

    Does anyone actually use Smart Summon?

    I've used it less than 5 times where it legitimately helped due to rain and more than 10 as a parlor trick

    Model 3 HW3 retrofit questions, wait time, issues

    My car is in for some warranty work and they included HW3 as a part of the paperwork. They texted me earlier today saying they can’t install yet but will schedule it for a few weeks from now when I go in to pick it up tomorrow or Thursday.
