    2021 Model 3 Cabin noise

    Is there any improvements in Road rumble on rough road patches? My 2018 Model 3 LR is pretty quiet (not much wind noise), but the rough concrete roads like I-5 in Seattle area, the rumble and roar of the road noise via the body is unbearable above 50MPH. On Smoother tarmac, my car is blissfully...

    Sound Deadening Model 3

    Thanks for sharing your work and results. I had suspicion that the noise/drumming sound we are hearing in the cabin on rougher patches is because of transmission of vibration from Suspension. I wish some 3rd Party making strut mount vibration isolation.

    Model 3 HW3 retrofit questions, wait time, issues

    Finally picked up my M3 15k VIN with FSD upgrade. Camera Calibration is done very quickly, less than 5 miles (10mins) auto pilot was available. Haven't driven a lot yet, and did not observe any changes as of now yet. I had to setup my Bluetooth and wifi connection. I thought those are on MCU...

    Model 3 HW3 retrofit questions, wait time, issues

    Mine also says retrofit with Electrical wiring. My guess is initial/Early builds needs that wiring. Also that may be the reason early build got this retrofit little later than newer builds. This is what invoice says for my 15K VIN car. Concern: Full Self-Driving Car Computer Retrofit (Model 3)...

    Model 3 HW3 retrofit questions, wait time, issues

    I gave my M3 with 15K range VIN for FSD upgrade along with Charge Port error keep popping up on the screen about touch not working. My Experience at Lynnwood Service Center: This is first time I went to this Lynnwood Service center. I tried to reach them to drop off previous night as I did not...

    Accident for unable to brake efficiently: Tesla's or my fault?

    I completely agree. The OEM Michelin 18in tires are pathetic on wet roads. Slight acceleration on wet roads, these tires will spin, and I am very cautious with these tires when road is wet and increase my distance considerably. I do not remember any tires in recent memory being this bad when...

    Range on Autopilot

    In general brake sensor/switch on most cars (irrespective of Tesla or not) turn on brake lights the moment brake pedal moves from rest position. This is done for safety reasons, a few mm movement of brake pedal lights up brake lights even before any force is applied on brake master cylinder to...

    Model 3 HW3 retrofit questions, wait time, issues

    Thanks for info. I am not getting the logic/formula of who is getting this early. Obviously its not VIN number based. May be all these are Performance versions? Performance was released later, and had higher VINs. May be that's why many with Lower VIN did not receive in Seattle Area as too...

    Model 3 HW3 retrofit questions, wait time, issues

    My VIN is in 15k range(Early May 2018), and two of my appointment requests for HW3 upgrade are cancelled saying Hardware is not received for my car. This is in Seattle Area. Not sure if anyone from Seattle area got this upgrade done.

    Orbital Aero covers kickstarter

    It good we are getting aero cover options. I am not fan of the looks, I feel these do not look any better than standard aero covers. Curbrash protection, how it is going to protect? Instead of rim edge it is going to be cover and still rash will be visible. Also another thing, why the center...

    Model 3 HW3 retrofit questions, wait time, issues
