    Far West Texas Charging

    I know Basecamp Terlingua already installed a charger, and they had another that got broken from an excavator backing into it. My friend runs Flack electrical down there, and he hooked up the charger for Basecamp Terlingua. If possible check with them, or Flack electrical. I went down there in...

    Fort Worth Service Center

    They are hiring it looks like also. My degree is operations amanagement, but I am more inclined to work at the factory over a service center. My background is engineering, operations and IT, but I will think about it though since I am currently jobless at the moment. But my plan is working at...

    Amarillo to Trinidad, CO supercharger stats - round trip

    I will be heading this way again over the weekend, but my plan is just capulin volcano for the new moon after Palo duro on Saturday. I will be staying in the capulin rv park to fully charge overnight and then may head to santa fe afterwards. Still figuring that out, but at least theTesla...

    Far West Texas Charging

    Any status updates on chargers in the area? I was thinking about hitting big bend ranch, but I think El cosmico is closed for now. Not sure what options are available, but wanted to hit it up while I have free time and before it gets hot out. I know bbnp will reopen soon, but i would prefer...

    Full charge 99%?

    I had the Service Center run the battery diagnostics on my car yesterday and it is within the normal thresholds and possibly a little lower on the degredation side compared to the fleet average. They basically just compare it to the fleet and just use data from the vehicle. I am guessing that...

    Banging noise over bumps

    So my issue with noises over bumps was a super simple fix. It was coming from the trunk going over bumps and they just adjusted the rubber twist bumpers to remove the slack on it. I was hoping it would be something a little bigger so I could borrow the 100D, but oh well. 22k miles and the rubber...

    Fort Worth Service Center

    I brought this up yesterday at my service center visit in Dallas yesterday, and it sounds like it may open in the next few months. I was told the lifts are installed and it will need to secure some permits and hire employees, but hopefully 2nd quarter of this year and we will have a service...

    Supercharger - Waco, TX

    Just noting that the El Pollo Regio is not open yet, but probably will be very shortly. I planned on getting food there and they are still working on the interior of the building. On another note, according to my account, this supercharger is free. I stayed a little longer than planned to top...

    Aftermarket Wheels on Model 3

    I just went in and had the employee at Discount review the warranty materials for Michelin and then they prorated it and ordered my tires. I did not call at all, just showed up and had them look into what they can do there. That was last month when I got them replaced.

    Aftermarket Wheels on Model 3

    This comment goes for anyone in this thread. If you need to replace your first set of Michelin MXM4's, go to a Michelin approved dealer like Discount Tire or another store and they can prorate the discount on the tire warranty. My Michelin cross climate new set was $513 out the door and I got a...

    Supercharger - Waco, TX

    For anyone who hasn't tried El Pollo Regio, the combo #2 asada plate is the bomb. The grilled chicken is also fantastic, but not for a lunch break in the model 3. That gets messy and greasy really quick. I will be happy to stop by there next time I roll through.

    Full charge 99%?

    Has anyone actually had their car diagnosed and battery replaced from the TSB listed? I have an appointment and will inquire about it in a couple weeks. As of now, my car hit 310 miles at 100% when it was new in November 2018. Then a software update last year changed that to 325 miles max, then...

    Just Shredded Three Tires: Need Tire Recs ASAP!

    My suggestion is that you should buy tires with a warranty and go to shops that will cover it if they wear out too quickly. Even the standard MXM4's can be covered by michelin prorated warranty if they wear out before 45k miles.

    Easier to avoid speeding tickets in Tesla?

    Considering my 285 wh/m after 17k miles, it is quite easy to speed in my LR RWD 3. At least autopilot makes road trips easy and efficient. So far I have not been pulled over, but I am getting replacement tires already at 17k. Luckily Michelin will warranty that with a nice discount on my next...

    Just Shredded Three Tires: Need Tire Recs ASAP!

    This chart has the most info you will find on Model 3 tires anywhere. Just avoid the Tesla Service Center. Other options should be way cheaper with better warranty conditions. VERSION 2: Comparison of best Model 3 compatible tires (18", 19", 20") : teslamotors
