    Sell Model 3 and wait for tax change?

    It would be unwise to base any decisions that depend on anything being passed by congress

    Master Thread: New Tesla Vision system for Model 3/Y

    For owners that bought prior to the official change, my guess is that Tesla will not be able to remove radar, a class action suit would be guaranteed.

    Master Thread: New Tesla Vision system for Model 3/Y

    I would think that would leave tesla vulnerable to a class action suit. The new owners have to agree to the lack of radar if they ordered before the change.

    Master Thread: New Tesla Vision system for Model 3/Y

    Exactly. I understand the point that vision is more detailed than radar. But what I dont get is the lack of a failsafe for basic safety features like emergency braking, when a camera system is so easily disabled. I live in sunny vegas, and regularly see the Camera is Blinded message. I wonder...

    Master Thread: New Tesla Vision system for Model 3/Y

    I have a suspicion that this may be a problem for Tesla. The problem is a camera can be easily blinded, thereby redering a critical safety feature useless. Sure they can give us a warning that said critical safety features arent working, but that's the issue; are you supposed to immediately pull...

    I just de-wrapped my interior [removed aftermarket wrap]

    I have the center console shell from Abstract Ocean in white, and it looks exactly the same as the white dash. The only small downside is the weight prevents the phone cover from raising by itself, you have to lift it.

    Stopping mode and very tight space

    I also park in a tight garage, and here is what I do. Set the mode to Creep, it is WAY less stressful to control the car using the brake vs the accelerator. You still virtually have 1 pedal driving, the car slows down in exactly the same way except for the the final 1mph. Then you tap the brake...

    Best way to keep heat from coming through the sunroof?

    I have high quality 35% ceramic tint on all windows and sunroof, and air70 on the windshield. With that I havent found a need to also use a sun shade.

    Sell Model 3 for new Model 3?

    In LA, the heat pump will make almost no difference. You can buy wireless charger accessories. You can have a after-market power trunk and frunk fitted if you really want it. None of those seem like a good reason to switch...

    Tesla Tires at Costco

    Another disadvantage is if you do get a flat and drive on the runflat, it is not recommended to repair it, so new tires...

    Inaccurate Navigation

    Unfortunately they are correct. The Tesla maps are really Google maps, and there is nothing the service center would be able to do about it.

    Relocating to UK...what to do with my Tesla?

    In what way do you think it is advantageous? I struggle to think of anything

    Orbital Wheel Covers Kickstarter reboot

    It's pretty normal for these kickstarters to have long delays. I backed this one on indiegogo, my assumption is there is a risk the company fails and I lose my money, and an absolute certainty that thif they are successful it will take them much longer than they first thought. Just have...

    Relocating to UK...what to do with my Tesla?

    Just sell it, tesla used values are pretty good. I am from the UK and also lived in Spain for a while so I am very used to driving on both sides of the road. You really want to have the steering on the correct side of the car, overtaking is literally dangerous on a undivided road due to the poor...

    Waiting for Delivery.....Random Questions

    I believe they dropped homelink due to the growth of smart garage door openers, lots of people just dont need it so its better to be an option and make the car slightly cheaper. I also think that a 360 view is possible with the current cameras, and will be added in a future update.
