    Cannot for the life of me decide an exterior/interior combination

    I don't know about the current white, but my white was also multi-coat. At the time when my car was delivered (2018), there were quite a few issues with white model 3's bumper color not matching the body color. Mine was fine though.

    Cannot for the life of me decide an exterior/interior combination

    My M3 is white on white. I bought it before white exterior was the free color so I paid for both. White and red were actually the most expansive colors at the time. It looks really sharp and you could tell it apart from all the other whites out there. I would say about 5% of the white M3...

    Do we get paper registration on car pickup in CA?

    I haven't bought a car since they came out with paper plate. Do they still tape a temporary registration paper on your windshield or the paper plate replaces that entirely?

    AT&T is probably one of them as Tesla cars use it for internet connection.

    Homelink usefullness vs regular garage door opener

    If you live in gated community, the auto open gate is awesome. You can also remotely open up or close your garage door using your app if your car is near the garage. The newer smart WiFi connected garage door could do this already, but the Tesla homelink just change the dumb garage door into...

    Supercharger - Rancho Cucamonga, CA - Foothill Blvd. (LIVE 22 Sep 2021, 8 V3 stalls)

    Well this location is doing the job well for taking off the load from VG supercharger. Just about every time I checked, VG has more open spots than this location. Currently it is showing 10 open at VG and 6 here.

    Large amounts of vampire drain after driving med-long distances?

    Does your car receive WiFi signal at home? If it does not, maybe every time you took a long drive out to area with good LTE signal, it will try to download new software. Maybe it doesn't get to finish when you get home and kept on trying using a weak LTE signal and kept the car awake.

    Wait wait wait. No garage door opener?

    I see your point, but I have to disagree. Because we ordered our Model X right after the test drive without any research into EV or Tesla at all. I did do research after the fact, Tesla is just so amazing to drive you really don't care about how much you spent!

    Rear Tires Wear Faster

    I have Model X and Model 3. Both are AWD. The Model X tires wear pretty much evenly as you can't even rotation the tires because front and rear are different sizes. For the Model 3, if you don't rotate the tires, the back wears out about 3x faster than the front. I don't know why either...

    Wait wait wait. No garage door opener?

    Actually I think it is normal for someone with 1 post to do this. If they have many posts, they would have known this already. It is the people who just bought one and then found out would have posted it. Whenever I told people who do not own a new Tesla that new Tesla does not come with...

    Safety Score

    I found it funny that they are scoring your driving so they could drive for you! If they are doing the driving, why do they care if you break hard or turn sharp when you are driving? Unless... maybe they will only let the people who score low to get onto beta. They want the dangerous...

    Could a M3 make it up my driveway

    I back my Model 3 up my driveway. I don't know if that actually make a difference, but I feel like the back has more clearance. And also I don't have to pull out he charging cord too far away from the garage to charge the car.

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    My update took like 4 hours I think. When I asked beforehand how long it would take, the answer was depends if the software update takes or not. If the update takes, then it would be same day. She said the hardware change is easy, it was the software update that could fail they would have to...

    Recommendation for 2022 EVs other than Tesla?

    The one with like 100 miles range? 100 miles range in the summer is like 60 miles in the winter if winter is cold. I had a Mini Cooper Turbo (ICE) back in 2011. While the car was amazing to drive and looks really cool, it was one of the most troublesome cars I have ever owned. My friend...
