    Anybody receive the Carbon Fiber Performance Spoiler from RPM Tesla?

    Ordered 6/16/19 with 2-4 weeks expected delivery. Emailed 7/6/19 and they responded 7/9/19 it would be another 6-8 weeks . They offered a refund, but I did not take it. Still waiting obviously.

    Model 3 Car Insurance in Texas?

    In Houston, $1,700/yr for my Tesla M3 with mid market carrier Cincinnati. $500k combine limits with $1,000 deductible and excellent comprehensive insurance and $60k agreed upon value. No claims or anything. Pricey but I checked around and Farmers wasn’t much different when they matched the...

    What extra range?

    My June 2018 build and delivery received the update at some point last year and the max I ever saw it get to at 100% charge was 320 miles. However, my personal belief is regardless of the bump, I never seem to get anywhere near that even with efficient driving (< 250 wi/mh). I charge to 90%...

    Texas State Inspection

    Anywhere that does state inspections. It's called a safety inspection only since there's no emissions. It costs $7 only.

    Model 3 LR tire rotation?

    I rotated my M3 LR via Tesla mobile service at around 7,500 miles for no charge in late 2018. Now at 16,000 miles after 1 year of ownership, I went to Discount Tire yesterday morning to check up on the stock tires, and the technician measured all 4 of them at 6/32" and he said they were all...

    Humming noise while parked in garage

    Serious question here: Along with the noisy fan in my garage which I have also experienced after drives parked in my garage, I believe I am for the first time after almost 1 year of ownership experiencing musty/ weird smells upon re-entering the vehicle. I have noticed this mainly after being...

    Model 3 range is really about 220 miles

    I have LR RWD with sport wheels with supposed increased range to 325. I am averaging about 260 miles on full charge based on my estimates on a road trip today of 570 miles and last week for 400 miles. Wh/mi = 275 last week in rainy conditions, 255 wh/mi today in perfect conditions 61-85 degree...

    Supercharging referral

    I was just wondering about this today. I have 1 referral, ordered but not yet delivered. It is showing up in my loot box and account online. However, it doesn't show any miles remaining yet which I expected since delivery has not happened yet. However, weird thing is I supercharged 2 times...

    Sentry Mode not working well

    Having Sentry Mode is great however I basically haven’t ever been able to use it to view videos in an effective manner. I specifically hit the Save button on Sunday afternoon to be able to view an incident later on. However in the Saved Clips folder on the USB Drive there are several 5/5/15...

    Sentry Mode = vampire drain?

    I have had Sentry Mode for several weeks now and I have used it extensively while parked at work throughout the day. Initially noticed about 1 mile per hour range loss, sometimes more. However, today I lost 14 miles of range over 9 straight hours of being parked at work. This equates to 70...

    New Model 3 MR - Drove it 2,800 Miles XCountry Roadtrip - Impressions and Analytics

    Nice write up, but why is the average speed so low (47, 52mph...), even on highways? Sounds like you were crawling. In the end and after my own 6 months of experience, I would never go below Long Range; you simply can't replace having extra juice any time you want or need it IMHO.

    PSA: Check your signature lights if it's not working

    Service center confirmed it is not working. They need to order an entire new headlight for the repair.

    PSA: Check your signature lights if it's not working

    I am pretty sure my drivers side "signature light" is not working, but the passenger side is working fine. The local service center wants me to send pictures so they can "order the right part" for the repair. I tried to take a good photo, but I was unable to. Perhaps the daytime is better...

    Selling Tesla Model 3 LR to Vroom.com after upgrading to AWD

    Yeah it has been removed from Texas Direct Auto site for now. Likely means someone put a deposit down. It is not uncommon for the car to reappear later on as deals seem to fall through all the time.
