    Cooler air in late 2020 model 3?

    Glad you said this. I've noticed the same. I have assumed that it is because the AC is also kicking in for defrosting or something. If I turn off the AC, it seems to help...but windows fog immediately. Definitely more humid here in the PNW than in summer, and it might be that the AC is...

    Confused about charging in off-peak hours

    The goals expressed aren't uncommon, I don't think. There are basically two factors that influence when we want things to charge, but only one of them is allowed to be priority at any one time: Charging to allow for some amount of driving - the bulk of this is what should happen during low-rate...

    Condensation in B-pillar cameras

    Don't see how there can be a firmware fix for a physical issue, unless they're doing corrective optics like they did with Hubble. Seems to me that the way to fix it is a combination of improving the airflow through that area or sealing it up like double-glazed windows, and/or maybe putting...

    Brackets to install Aftermarket Speakers in Model 3

    See post #301 in this thread for my take. Not a breathtaking difference, but better.

    Scheduled charging issues

    See this thread? Related, maybe, to when you have your off-peak time ending set?

    Confused about charging in off-peak hours

    Yeah, it feels like Tesla hasn't really thought this out. It should be pretty easy to Tell the app when off-hours start and when they end by day of week Request off-peak charging up to the limit set on the main charge screen Ask for the app to reserve a "top off" time (30 minutes?) to be...

    The Tesla. If you tap the "Schedule" button on the charging screen, you get this:

    Confused about charging in off-peak hours

    Interesting. Then why do they bother with the off-peak hours at all?

    Confused about charging in off-peak hours

    I'd like to take advantage of off-peak hours for charging, obviously. But... In the settings, there is only one time that you can set; for when the off-peak hours end. But there is no setting for when they start? How does it know when to start charging? If you aren't going to leave until 2...

    Vendor Light Harmonic T4D Upgrade Speaker System

    If I were in the market, I'd want some specs on the speakers, too. To me, they look a little "gimicky" with the carbon fiber dome. So if they are really made in-house, I wonder about things like efficiency, response, etc. With a well-known speaker manufacturer like Faital, I felt more comfortable.

    Vendor Light Harmonic T4D Upgrade Speaker System

    If the installation is similar to the one of the Faital speakers I listed 5 posts above, removing the whole dash is not needed. All that was required was removing some trim pieces. The issue might be the clearance between the windshield and the dash. The Faitals cleared pretty easily, but they...

    Vendor Light Harmonic T4D Upgrade Speaker System

    As far as what can be improved over a stock premium system, this might be germane as I posted in another thread: “Quick report on my install of the Amped Garage brackets, Focal woofers/tweeters, and Faital midranges. I replaced all 3 dash speakers with the Faitals, as well as the rear doors...

    No Boombox for UK

    Honestly, I don't think anyone is missing anything without this feature. Unless you're sentimental and you like your car to sound like an old AM radio powered by a 9V battery.
