    What kind of changes or improvements do you hope...

    I know it was a lot of talk about it, but anyway... I wish that adaptive cruise control was a standard. I have Sep 2018 M3 AWD and to pay $5000 to have it adaptive... I understand that Tesla wanted to push Autopilot, but I do not need it even now. But in 2018 even much cheaper cars had it.

    Charging amperage limit at home now is 48A?

    No, I was told by Tesla before I came for display change that they will replace a hood lock and also port lock pin or something like that (it was in a phone conversation). I did not a my charge method, and did not try to charge yet (i still have it charged more than 80%). I think that when I...

    Charging amperage limit at home now is 48A?

    It was also set to 32A. After Tesla changed the port for updated version (now I recall they change it because of some famous port pin problems) my charge setting was set for minimum, 5A. That is why I moved slider and realised that max is 48A.

    Charging amperage limit at home now is 48A?

    Hmm, for some reason I have a feeling that it showed 32A before (but it is possible it was when I used adapter for NEMA 14-50 which I installed at home). I did not check actually what it shows now if I plug that adapter, I have more than enough juice coming back from Tesla service.

    Charging amperage limit at home now is 48A?

    While I was in Tesla service (display change) Tesla changed my hood lock and port for upgrade versions as I was told. When I got home I noticed in my scheduled charging that I can set now amperage up to 48A. I could be mistaken, but I think before I had limit 32A. I do not think I really need to...

    Only 198 volts on nema 14-50. Yikes!?

    If I read correct, start voltage was about 203-204V and load voltage was 198V, which makes difference 6V. Does not look like a big drop.

    Only 198 volts on nema 14-50. Yikes!?

    I do not think that software is smart enough to know that you on a 208V line and deal with it as if you were on a 240V line. So, in reality the drop is about 5-6V which is fine, but software does not think so. Try to limit current to 24A or find the maximum amperage what software still allow you...

    It looks like the voltage drops too low, so software limits the current.

    Only 198 volts on nema 14-50. Yikes!?

    I do not think that using step-up transformer is a good idea: the cost of transformer ($500?) will never paid off, couple miles per hour speed up will not make much of a difference, involving extra element to something what should be as simple as possible does not make it more reliable, higher...

    Who Else Doesn't Care about the Performance Model? vs. AWD

    I am pretty sure that if we take a survey we could see strong relation of age of the driver and his car (performance vs non performance) choice. The younger drivers mostly would go for P, experienced ones for non P. Also, people do not like to agree that they made a mistake, so most people will...

    Model 3 Rear Drive Unit Failed?

    This is really unbelievable. I could not imagine that Tesla could give such advice: it is a Tesla, not an ICE car where alternator charges the battery only if you driving. Tesla HV inverter charges 12V battery whenever voltage drops to some level. Because of that, Tesla can drive even with...

    Copper in a Model 3

    I actually do not see any issue here if you ask me.

    Copper in a Model 3

    Do you know this for sure? I would be surprised to know this as to make loses at minimum aluminium cables should be much thicker than copper cables for the same amperage.
