    why no beep for backup sensor in Model 3? [rear cross traffic warning]

    I do remember Elon saying on twitter a while back (over 1 year ago) that they would add rear cross traffic warnings, who knows what happened to it maybe they will add it with the vector space birds eye view when they release the FSD rewrite?

    Phone not connecting to car upon walkup

    I had this problem on android (Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra), turns out the OS was putting the app to sleep because I wasn't opening it that often. To fix this I had to go to the phone settings and add the Tesla app to the "Never put to sleep" category and I've never had that problem since.

    Locked out of my Tesla account - Multi Factor Authorisation. Please help!

    Yeah, don't rely on the cloud to back things up on it's own. I've lost stuff before because I assumed the cloud had already backed it up.

    Tesla homelink

    I have it auto close and open and it works pretty well most of the time. You can set the proximity. I also have garage sensors so I don't have to worry about the door closing on someone. It will tell you on screen how much further or closer you need to drive before it will actually send the...

    HELP! Buy new M3 SR+ Or used LR AWD

    Ok, so after making my previous post I've come across some new info that seems pretty reputable. Apparently a bunch of new stuff are about to be added to the Model 3's including a redesigned center console, chrome delete as standard, double paned windows, a heat pump, and a power trunk, so this...

    HELP! Buy new M3 SR+ Or used LR AWD

    If you can get a long range for just an extra $3-5k more, I'd say go for the long range. You won't be missing much in terms of features.

    Biggest pain of EV is .......

    Had to drive an ICE car around to various tire centers when my 3 got a flat. At one point I forgot to take the key out of the ignition and just got out the car. After closing the door I just stood there wondering why the music was still playing inside.

    Passenger airbag off light - on when seat is empty

    It's because airbags can do more harm than good if children are sitting in the front seat. Therefore if a certain weight limit on the passenger seat is not reached, the airbags will turn off.

    Good portable air compressor for the Model 3?

    I use this one. Its 12V 120W so if you do the math it should only pull 10 amps https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07QR4Q42L/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&th=1

    12v battery issue, Tesla unsatisfactory response

    You can actually use a standard 9v battery to open the frunk (only works if the 12v battery is dead or car is unlocked)

    12v battery issue, Tesla unsatisfactory response

    Honeslty it will prob be quicker, cheaper, and less stressful if you change the battery yourself. There are videos on youtube on how to open the hood when the battery is dead.

    EAP (Enhanced Auto Pilot) for $4k. Who’s in?

    I heard EAP is only available to purchase until September 30th (don't quote me on this). Its prob to help generate cash before earning call.

    Would you return this 2020 3 Performance?

    I suggest returning. Rumors are saying that Tesla will announce significant cost saving with battery manufacturing on battery day which will in turn greatly reduce the prices of all Tesla vehicles. Chances are you will save more than $2,800 a year from now on a completely brand new P3D
