    Average age of Model 3 owners?

    Side Hustle: One of my neighbors’ teenager and his girlfriend both have Model 3s. From my understanding, they saved up through a side hustle of theirs. It’s the base model, but still one to be proud of! Excessive Spending: One of my cousins is in his early 20s and purchased a Model 3 even...

    3 dual motor - are both motors used all the time

    I upgraded from a single motor Model 3 to a performance last year and I can vouch for the much better regen braking. It feels stronger, though I wish it were even stronger. It makes one pedal driving easier as well and overall more satisfying. I’m not sure what you mean about the smoothness...

    Vroom Sale [of a model 3] Gone Bad

    All sites either wanted me to go in person or call them to get an estimate. Only GMTV got back to me with an offer of $46k. This is for a 2019 Model 3 Performance with white interior, FSD, and 37k miles. How are you people getting more offered? It’s not like mine is in a bad condition or anything.

    Model 3 accident with deer

    It could for a good chance for him to upgrade to a performance 3. The wait times for those is only 1 month!

    Car front "grille" (side panels) in intersection accident, where to get fixed?

    I always take mine to Avio Coach Craft in Van Nuys. It’s been an excellent experience every time. Heck, I’m going there again today! Edit: I just realized how this makes me sound. I swear I’m not always crashing on things! I’ve just been there for Turo-related damages and flying debris!

    This thing is awesome! M3P

    I agree with the others, the performance Model is awesome and never gets old! I’ve had mine for over a year after upgrading from a Model 3 LR RWD. I highly suggest trying out the Pilot Sport 4S tires once your stock tires are worn out. It felt like upgrading cars yet again! Also, as someone...

    Tesla Tires at Costco

    Anyone know if the Michelin Pilot Sport EV tires will be available yet? I’ve been waiting for those for a few months now.

    14 day old m3 hit while parked total loss?

    My 2018 Model 3 LR got hit very very similar damage last year. It was deemed a total loss and later sold for ~$36k at an auction to someone in Europe.

    CA DMV failing Tesla car for behind the wheel drive test

    Yes, and the DMV had no problem with her using full regen. The instructor also asked about things like the glove box and locks being operated from the screen. This was back the Model 3 was relatively new to the streets. We got married shortly after her turning 18, not before, in case my wording...

    CA DMV failing Tesla car for behind the wheel drive test

    I’d love to see someone take their DMV exam in a new Model S with the Yoke steering wheel and no stalks! My wife took her exam in my Model 3 when turned 18 and the instructor had no problem with it. They did ask to clarify some things like the parking brake, but it was perfectly fine overall.

    Make the audio volume not decrease when the door opens.

    I personally really like this feature. I’m always blasting music inside my car but don’t like bothering other people when I open the door. Before I had a Tesla, I would just turn it off completely before getting out. Having it auto adjust was one of the coolest features I found when I bought my...

    Potential New EV Tax Credit for 2021

    Wouldn’t someone who makes under $40k yearly not have enough taxable income for the full credit anyway? Does that mean that nobody gets it?

    2021 M3 RWD or 2019 M3 AWD?

    If you are even remotely interested in power, definitely go for the AWD. Having owned a RWD Model 3 before, I can confidently say that it’s a night and day difference when it comes to how it feels and drives.

    Reapply Calif HOV sticker installed with ppf?

    This happened to me before. It was too difficult to re-apply so I ended up requesting a new one for $22. Only took 4 months to arrive. :/
