    Any Hardcore Car Enthusiast Out Here? I Have Questions About Going to Model 3

    This is something I've been interested in but haven't done. Have you done it yourself? I've ballparked that a charge would be good for a solid 20 minute session or so, but probably not 2. I feel like an RV plug would maybe work but you'd probably be starting each session with less and less...

    Anyone tried the "Active Exhaust" systems?

    Great suggestions. I'll check into those next.

    Anyone tried the "Active Exhaust" systems?

    Will do! We're in the process of moving so my task list for the foreseeable future includes reinstalling wall connector, and everything else that goes along with a house. BUT it is definitely on my radar now. I did find this guy's video review and it further convinced me it would be a lot of...

    Anyone tried the "Active Exhaust" systems?

    FYI the Tesla boom box is a relatively small speaker with no resonating chamber - you're not going to get throaty exhaust notes that resonate through the vehicle. It is a non-starter if you're looking for something that has any punch.

    Anyone tried the "Active Exhaust" systems?

    This really rings true. Coming from the Porsche community it is really odd to me to see so many non-enthusiasts with such strong opinions about what other people should and shouldn't do with their cars. I'm probably going to order one just to spite them - and because I really do miss hearing an...

    "Proactive" 12v battery replacement - good idea or overkill?

    Yes. So to close the loop on my ordeal. Prepping the house for sale and showings so my car was in the driveway. Went to pull it in that night, and it died completely once I got inside. Used my battery charger to power the tow hook leads, opened the frunk, found the battery had 4.5v. Put it on...

    "Proactive" 12v battery replacement - good idea or overkill?

    Well I took the battery into the service center and bought a new one. Got home, and I can't get the frunk open. I had to close it due to heavy rain today. I've tried my charger on the 10 and 50amp settings, as well as jumper cables from the new battery. No reaction, nothing. So this is turning...

    "Proactive" 12v battery replacement - good idea or overkill?

    You're correct about getting the hood open - that was simple enough. However even with the charger connected to the 12v battery the doors would not open. I even tried bumping it up to the 50amp 'start' setting thinking maybe it was a current issue. No dice. Even after being on the charger all...

    "Proactive" 12v battery replacement - good idea or overkill?

    Just had this happen to me last night. 2019 P3D with like 37k miles. Car was in the driveway as we got things prepared for showings (the house hit the market the next day). Got in my car to pull it back in the garage and everything died. Had to use the emergency door lever to get out. Pushed the...

    Performance cold weather range

    You'll have 0 issues with 80 mile round trip in any weather - even on highway driving at 80-90mph the entire way (which sucks battery like crazy) you will be fine. Even pre-heating your car before you get to it, using heated seats, etc. 80 miles is nothing. I'd be hesitant to say the same about...

    Auto Pilot Hands Free

    Yeah, to be totally honest I prefer the hand on the wheel vs. the camera. With hand on wheel you can (not that you should) focus on other things, the camera is much less forgiving. I've also found the camera to be overly sensitive. For example if you're looking straight ahead at the road, but...

    Auto Pilot Hands Free

    I haven't paid much attention to the GM version, but the last I saw it only worked on specific highways that are mapped? Either way, the answer to your question is - yes. I'm using FSD beta and the cabin camera is tracking driver attention. I think it is very likely that eventually Tesla will...

    We actually took our stroller to the service center prior to purchasing the M3 so see how it fits. We have an Uppababy Vista - and it takes up about half the rear trunk. There's a way to remove the seat itself to get it in there in a more compact way, but typically we don't take it anywhere. For...

    Pic of your Model 3.......RIGHT NOW! [model 3 pictures thread]

    Very cool color. I've never seen it on a P. What performance increase are you talking about?

    Did you opt-in? I think there's a button somewhere in the autopilot menu.
