    Model 3 2023 updates? Or what would you guys like to see?

    Again, there is ZERO you can do to configure the discharge power curve except heat up the battery. Literally ZERO, nada, nothing. And even then, it's not a linear scale. You may get more punch with a hotter battery, but that does not mean it puts out more peak power. I make the same exact...

    You cannot add power on the top end to an existing M3P. if anyone could do it, ingenext would have already done it and been selling the service/product.

    Is it worth to upgrade my 2020 Model 3 LR AWD to 2022?

    No. wait for more improvements, right now you'll spend a few thousand just to get a few trinkets that don't really add up to much.

    Effect of wider tires on range

    Maybe it's like what @MasterC17 said and something is jacked up on it. If so, not worried about it, I have to buy a new one (again) after Jan 1 for tax purposes, so this one is going away anyways.

    Effect of wider tires on range

    Heard similar issues around here as well with the new systems. Heck, when I precool the car in the garage, my solar/powerwalls are showing it pulls over 5kW until the car cools down. My last car pulled 2.8kW.

    Effect of wider tires on range

    No clue what the technical difference are without Googling and pretending. After 80,000 miles in my last car and almost 30,000 in this one, personal experience is that the old one blew cold air near instantly. This heat pump thing takes 5-10 minutes to cool down, and doesn't get nearly as...

    M3SR and install solar, or M3LR and pay for electricity?

    You're asking us to make a financial decision for you without knowing a single thing? In that case, I say buy 3 of each.

    Effect of wider tires on range

    Murders us in the desert. The old system was much more efficient with AC and it cooled better. These new heat pumps are trash for hot weather.

    Aftermarket Wheels on Model 3

    I had a set of 19" 245 federal 595 rs-rr on there a few months back and they were loud AF, but holy hell were those things sticky. You could push past the PS4S break point and they just kept grabbing harder.
