    Sold my Tesla yesterday - No Sellers Remorse Yet

    I went back to ICE too, I was sick of the loud tire noise so now it's just a much louder ICE engine to deal with! /s

    Sleeping in the car for 2 weeks?

    I use this mattress: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00DJ8HX96/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 It's super comfortable if you take your back seat bench out. I kept it in the car unfolded for most of the journey (spent 5 nights in the car) so it takes up a lot of space. I...

    What is your general experience in retrofitting power lift trunk?

    I have I believe the first HANSSHOW one, trunk only. I bought the foot sensor but never installed it after watching all the videos showing that it was pretty flaky. Works with both the screen and app - but doesn't show the status on the screen if opened.

    What is your general experience in retrofitting power lift trunk?

    I've had mine installed for a year and a half and it's still working great. Easily the best upgrade I made to the vehicle.

    Pic of your Model 3.......RIGHT NOW! [model 3 pictures thread]

    You do that yourself? I've watched a few vids but haven't had the guts to go through the whole process myself yet.

    Looking for sunshields for side windows.

    Don't buy anything from Evannex, they get theirs from this company: Windshield Sun Shades, Car Window Shades and Car Window Covers by HeatShield: The Original Windshield Sun Shade And you can as well for over $100 cheaper. Evannex is a drop ship company, you can always find their stuff from...

    Model 3 Windshield replacement $2300 and 2-3 days?

    Got mine done in CO last year at Safelite, much cheaper than what you are being billed. Also full coverage from insurance paid for the whole thing.

    Consumers disdain for “Self Driving”

    I absolutely love to drive my Model 3, with that being said there are plenty of times I'd love to have FSD.

    summons never works

    I've never had any luck with summon since the very first release. Tried it like five times and each time it almost hit another car or curb. I haven't tried to use it in over a year because of this.

    RV parks filling the charging gaps?

    I've used RV parks a lot on road trips, only one time was for an emergency coming back from Texas to Colorado. All the other times I have reserved a spot and slept in my car overnight at the park. Last time was one in Wyoming, I had a crowd around the car as I "was the first electric car they...

    Broke that damn glass roof a 2nd time!

    I live in CO and have carried my snowboards and friends skis probably 75 times on my roof rack, never cracked the glass once. I'm guessing this is a you problem. Maybe don't drop things on glass?

    So camping mode is useless.

    Yeah, the main screen absolutely doesn't turn off in camping mode. I've done about 8 nights using it and that damned bright fire lasts till morning. Even if you turn on the screen cleaning mode it turns off after a short while. Turning down the brightness helps a bit but in a pitch black camp...

    The Tesla Wave

    Two years ago people would always wave, now it's like 1% seem to.

    All Model 3s built since 9/1/2019 have a pedestrian warning speaker installed

    Not to mention that if you hit a pedestrian there isn't much more a lawyer needs, there are very strict laws about this sort of thing.
