    Poll - Are you waiting for the infrastructure bill before ordering?

    Prices haven't changed for LR as far as I can see (yet). The wheel choices have always been there. I'm seeing the same price for a black LR with aeros that I've been seeing for months ...

    2022 Model 3 rumours and opinions - should I collect my M3 in November or wait a couple of months?

    IIRC, the LFP batteries have a lower energy density (i.e. they are heavier than the prior batteries at similar energy capacity) which is why they are only being used in SR vehicles. Not sure the LFP batteries will make it to LR cars before the larger cells do (at least a year away). Could be...

    just got this alert, not sure what it means

    I just had mobile service out for a different issue, and I asked the tech about this. He looked into it and said it was very likely a firmware problem, and that the error code being thrown isn't even a code that is supposed to be in use anymore. He expected a future firmware push to remove the...

    Quality difference between a 2018 and 2021 Model 3

    I agree that the OG chrome was a bit overboard, but when I blacked mine out I actually kept the door handles chrome because I thought they played off my silver 19" wheels nicely. I would miss that if I upgrade to a new model :( That little pop of chrome on my car adds a lot of character I think.

    just got this alert, not sure what it means

    Same here, I've had this error for a few days and I did just take a software update last week (running 2021.32.10 on a 2018 Model 3). When I pulled the drive out to check it on my laptop, I saw a bunch of recent clips from over the weekend, so I'm not sure what the error was complaining about...

    Kenriko Chrome Delete Kit: Show off your tips and pictures here

    Personally I worked on the passenger side and made all my mistakes there, then switched to the driver side which went much smoother (and I don't see my mistakes every day :-P). My logic was that I had a good stopping point halfway through if I needed, as no one would be able to tell the delete...

    Kenriko Chrome Delete Kit: Show off your tips and pictures here

    I was in the same boat! :-) If you mess up a piece of vinyl during application and fill out a form on his website, Kenriko is kind enough to send you a spare. Some spares are already included in the kit, but ironically not for the pieces I messed up.

    Kenriko Chrome Delete Kit: Show off your tips and pictures here

    Finally got around to doing this project! I got the satin black kit. I opted to leave the door handles uncovered because I didn't love the idea of touching the wraps every day, and I actually like the pop of chrome on the doors. I also picked up red T logos for the cameras from Etsy. It probably...

    Kenriko Chrome Delete Kit: Show off your tips and pictures here

    Just got the chrome delete kit in the mail and opened it with my kid KID: Is that the kit for your Tesla? ME: Yep! KID: What does it do? Me: It covers up all the silver bits and makes them look black KID: ... KID: No seriously, what does it do? ME: That's what it does! KID: But ... your...

    If you did a version of the camera housings with the logos cut out that would be amazing!

    Supercharger - Webster, TX

    Over/under on this SC being operational by Monday? We will be coming back from Galveston and it would be nice to have this as an option.

    Kenriko Chrome Delete Kit: Show off your tips and pictures here

    Yeah, the heat in Texas right now is the main reason I haven't ordered yet. I'm hoping it cools down by late Sept so I can give this a go. Will probably order the next batch. I have black with the silver 19s and will probably go satin. Am seriously considering leaving the door handles unwrapped...

    Supercharger - Austin, TX - Stonelake Blvd./Gateway

    No clue what their hours are, but there is a Panera and a Whole Foods (with dining area) fairly close. There's also a Taco Cabana if you walk a little further.
