    Annoying whistle noise, when driving relatively slowly – Is it normal?

    Sorry, I meant I had the answer to MY symptoms. If you guys have toggled on/off the destination (a SuC) in the nav system and you have confirmed the wine is different (less audible) then it must be a different issue, yes. Sorry for the confusion

    Annoying whistle noise, when driving relatively slowly – Is it normal?

    OK, now I have the answer to all those symptoms I described: preconditioning of the battery en route to a Supercharger! That's what it was. The Model 3 doesn't have a resistance heater for the battery (like Model S & X), it instead preheats the battery through its motors. While standard...

    Annoying whistle noise, when driving relatively slowly – Is it normal?

    Oh and BTW, the Chambourcy Tesla Service Center (near Paris, France) said they don't want to look at the vehicle logs if it's a "sound problem", they want a technician to have a test drive instead. I said we're probably going to waste our time, as it only happens once every 10 drives... but they...

    Annoying whistle noise, when driving relatively slowly – Is it normal?

    Hello everyone, I am posting this here because I have a similar issue, but not 100% similar. Let me explain: I have a Model 3 P since february 2019 (before I had a 2014 Model S), never have experienced any problem with the 3, until last week. I have experienced 3 times, on 3 different drives...

    Pole Position game missing on EU 2019 Model 3

    Confirmed: it is gone from ALL european cars with 2019 SW update. No one at Tesla seems to know why...

    Pole Position game missing on EU 2019 Model 3

    Yes, that is what I thought but then I checked with people owning S or X in Europe, and they do have the pole position game in their cars (the newest ones only, of course). So it can't be licensing problems. It's really strange the Model 3s being delivered in Europe right now don't have it

    Pole Position game missing on EU 2019 Model 3

    Hi! I recently took delivery (only 4 days ago!) of my Performance Model 3 in Paris, France. Having owned a "classic" Model S (2014, pre AP) for almost 5 years, I was of course looking forward to using EAP, enjoying Easter Eggs not available in older Teslas, etc. And there comes my misery: POLE...

    Tesla Referral Program

    Yep, the app can also work sometimes. I used it to select my SC and confirm delivery of my arachnid wheels there... However, there are many prizes missing for me on the app

    Tesla Referral Program

    Yep, cash flow issues can be an explanation indeed, but I don't think it explains the lack of communication, or not receiving emails at the end of each referral round to have you select prizes...

    Tesla Referral Program

    Hi all - first a message for the mods: if this thread should belong to another forum, please feel free to move it (I decided to post it here because I am a Model S owner, but it is also applicable for the Model X, as those are the rules of the referral program). So, getting down to brass tacks...

    No brake llights above 136 kph (85 mph) while using regen braking

    Fair enough, I respect your opinion. Many others have stated their dislike of the way the system works with the brake lights under regen. However, no one has been able to explain why it is there with AP above 85 mph and not in cars without AP. And I have gone through measuring deceleration...

    No brake llights above 136 kph (85 mph) while using regen braking

    I have posted the deceleration rates, in meters per second squared, earlier on this thread. I suppose you've seen it? In case you haven´t seen it, here it is again: It clearly shows the same deceleration rate at 170, 160, 130 and 120 kph. So if it is the same, why a different brake lights...

    No brake llights above 136 kph (85 mph) while using regen braking

    So you want to take the risk to be rear-ended? I don't get it, but in any case, if you have an AP car you have the choice: don't lift the foot completely off. Classic non AP do not even have the choice... And there is no reason why. It is unsafe and a potential safety issue.

    No brake llights above 136 kph (85 mph) while using regen braking

    I had to wait 5 months to be able to get on the road again at high speeds and test this again... But it was worth it. Going 160 kph and above in winter isn't safe, and low temperatures often limited regen, but now I was able to try again. And I know have a video that proves my point: above 136...
