    Model 3 microscratches

    I found a permanent solution to this problem. When you get old enough you can't see them anymore.:cool:

    why no beep for backup sensor in Model 3? [rear cross traffic warning]

    The other factor that makes rear cross traffic warning more necessary today is the proliferation of SUVs. It's impossible to see around them when backing out.

    18inch Tsportline wheels on model 3

    I think the aerodynamics of the wheel is more important than weight when it come to range. That's why the stock 18 in. wheel covers provide more range than the same wheels running bare.

    Got a flat tire in Tijuana, Mexico

    If you replaced only two of the four tires and the old tires had significant tread wear then they would have a smaller diameter than the new tires. This can mess up traction control which monitors the rotational speed of each tire.

    Model 3 Performance Vs Giulia Quadrifoglio?

    I'm a former Alfa owner and it's hard to compare it to the model 3. The Alfa steering and handling are superior and it just feels like something special. There are so many model 3s on the road that I feel like I am driving just another ordinary car. If my local Alfa dealer had not shut down...

    Tesla insurance and the yoke

    There are two things they could be measuring: 1) How rapidly you turn the wheel 2) How fast you are going relative to the turn radius (amount of steering wheel rotation vs. vehicle speed) Neither one would be affected by changing to a yoke.

    Seat heat stays on after restart

    I think that's true for automatic mode. I just tested it in manual mode and it heats up with no passenger in the seat and stays on after restart.

    Seat heat stays on after restart

    If I manually turn on the seat heater without turning it off prior to shutting down the car, it will come on again at the next startup. I assume this happens on all model 3's. If this happens with the passenger seat, you might not notice it's running for months if no one uses that seat. Note...

    I am an engineer and If I were the head of one of Tesla's design groups I would be looking at this forum on a regular basis. User feedback is a valuable commodity to any customer oriented company. Many companies have people assigned to specifically track social media sites and feed the...

    I have seen this statement before from other forum members. If it's true, then Tesla doesn't deserve to be in business.

    How can I encourage insurance to declare a total loss on my Model 3?

    Another factor is how much they can get if they total your car and auction it off. I hit some road debris in my Alfa Romeo which tore up the underside causing $16K damage. The insurance company totaled it and I got over $30k. With no damage to the body panels or interior it was worth a lot...
