    Heat pump vs Resistive on Model 3

    I don't have a 2018-2020 Model 3 to compare since my wife and I have heat pumps in both vehicles (2020 Y LR, 2021 3 P). I have 3 full summers and 2 winters in my Y, 2 summers and 1 winter in the 3. Ironically, the car is less efficient in the summer. I'm pulling my info from the car with the...

    Rear Toe alignment preferences

    Things are good still. I'm installing the front adjustable camber arms next week so I can tweak the front more.

    Vendor Show Off Your Aftermarket Model Y Wheels

    No, no issues. The 255mm tire on the 9" width is perfect. I've done the math and it's perfectly fine. As long as you're not towing and have four very large adults in the car and the hatch is isn't loaded with 900 lbs of bricks, the tires and wheels can handle the load.

    Note, it's a 4 year warranty for residential use, 1 year for commercial use, although most of us will fall under the 4 year warranty umbrella.

    Can't jack one corner (battery flex)?

    I use a Milwaukee Stubby with a 21mm impact wrench thin wall socket, along with ear protection. There's nothing special about the Tesla lug nuts & wheel studs that should prevent you from using normal tools. Husky 50-250 ft-lb torque wrench.

    FS: 19" TSS Tsportline Matte Black Wheel Set

    You might want to delete this thread (linked below) posting the wheels for $1500 if you're selling them for $1600 in this thread. https://teslamotorsclub.com/tmc/threads/fs-19-tss-tsportline-matte-black-wheel-set-north-nj.269448/

    Tesla wall connector gen3 overheating fix

    Stinks that they made you do all that extra stuff. They looked at my charging logs and 2 minutes later, told me they would send a replacement. For the replacement 4 working days later.

    where is the "precondition my battery" button?

    They could also keep it simple. Cold/warm/hot/pull over and shut the car off. Just like the old analog coolant temp gauges.

    Anyone regret buying the Acceleration Boost for their Model Y?

    He has said a lot of things that never come to fruition. I'll believe it when I see it.

    Does preheating the car (climate option in app) also precondition the battery?

    I posted some information here in post #8 and #9: https://teslamotorsclub.com/tmc/posts/5318183/ Short answer is yes. Disregard my earlier comments in the thread (post 5) since software updates since then have eliminated previous issues. Last year I used the cabin heat to precondition. This...

    Model Y lowering springs

    Yeah, it's dependent upon the springs. My MPP coilover setup took about 1000 miles before they settled. I kept measuring every few hundred miles and sort of gave up initially since I wasn't seeing any drop. My LR was lowered around 2" and my rear camber settled at -2.7, to give you some sort of...
