    keep mobile connector plugged in? or unplug after use

    Keep it plugged in all the time. Generally NEMA 14-50 outlets are not designed for frequent plug insertion and can wear out (too loose to properly hold plug) after as little as 100 insertions (especially cheaper outlets).

    MyQ Smart Garage Door opener with EVE

    I also have Tailwind and yes it includes a magnetic proximity sensor(wired to unit so no battery like other systems) to detect if the door is closed or not. So when using auto open on approach if the door is already detected as open, Tailwind will not send a pulse command to open. Tailwind...

    Polishing with a 5" pad?

    I polished all exterior painted areas of my model 3 with 5" DA (21 mm) except for the following areas where I used 3" DA (12 mm) on my Flex PXE80: - A to C pillar: to avoid getting polish residue between pillar and glass roof. could also use tape to avoid this issue - lower portion of front...

    Paint Correction + Ceramic Coating Question

    Another thing to ask with a professional coating is what are the conditions for warranty. Most SiO2 based professional coatings typically required some form periodic application of SiO2 topper (typically annually) by the detail shop which may not be included in the initial coating price. Even...

    New Console Organizer tray and accessories

    Just got my console tray kit today and made a detailed unboxing video. Because the support rails of the front tray are covered in the same fabric as the center console interior it does not slide easily unless you lift it slightly. Could probably slide easier if covered on edges with something...

    How many ways to turn off traction control?

    I have the Ingenext Bonus Module installed in my 2021 SR+ which comes with "Drift" mode which disables stability and traction control while maintaining steering booster and ABS. Took my car to an empty parking lot last week after recent snowfall to do a bit of sleding, I mean sliding :). Real...

    Heated Steering Wheel

    I just got my M3 in December and was worried about the fact there was no heated steering coming from a BMW 3 series wagon with heated steering wheel. But after having the M3 for the past month in winter, I don't find I miss it that much. The instant heat of an electric vehicle and the ability...

    2021 Model 3 LR: Winter tires with BLE TPMS

    For a SR+ it is definitely worth it considering it unlocks the rear seat heaters which is a $400 CDN option from Tesla plus it enables control by the rear occupants via window switches. The other features, one has to decide for themselves. I think the auto door open with hands free trunk open...

    2021 Model 3 LR: Winter tires with BLE TPMS

    Installed the Bonus Module from Ingenext today and everything I've tried works as advertised. Note, trying to access and release the connector on MCU to install the Bonus Module Y cable takes extreme patience especially if you have "FAT" fingers like me. Probably took me 1 hour with several 5...

    2021 Model 3 LR: Winter tires with BLE TPMS

    Will do but I don't know how much opportunity I will have to test out drift mode. The Ingenext module completely disables both stability and traction control whereas the MountainPass Party box disables stability control yet only alters default traction control to allow more wheel spin than...

    2021 Model 3 LR: Winter tires with BLE TPMS

    If you want to just inhibit the TPMS warning you can consider getting the Bonus Module from Ingenext (Ingenext). They are based in Quebec so no issues with shipping to anywhere in Canada. The Bonus Module is about the same price as 4 BLE sensors with installation (rebalancing if you already...

    Cleaning dash and door panels help

    ONR followed by light spray of Optiseal on interior windows performs miracles in terms of cleaning glass. Gets rid of the greasy residue build up from out gasing of the plastics on the interior. Always comes out streak free when using appropriate microfiber towel (typical use waffle weave).

    Cleaning dash and door panels help

    I've used VRP before on the interior but find it too greasy and glossy for my taste. Better used on exterior plastic and rubber surfaces. For interiors I prefer Optimum's Protectant Plus (formally Leather Protectant). It works on all interior leather/vinyl/plastic surfaces. It also has a...

    Deep Blue Metallic Model 3 Photos

    Had the PPF for all the major exterior sections (full front, A to C pillar and rocker panels) done at a local detail shop. Applied PPF myself to wear and tear areas (strip on rear bumper and all four door sills). The polishing and application of ceramic coating I did myself. Yes that is a...

    Also a BMW convert (former 2011 328xi Wagon). Great minds think alike:)
