    Model 3 interior easily hot and stuffy (white on white)

    +1 for high quality tint. Have had two Model S's and one Model 3, had Photosync put on all of them including the windshields. Made a huge difference in interior heat, and we live in Texas

    will they stay securely in place when I close the lid?

    Any Suggestion for Center Console Wrap?

    Looks nice! Did you wrap your passenger too? ;)

    My experience tells me that the Tesla homelink system doesn't work as well as at least one other manufacturer's, Infiniti. We presently have a 2016 Model S, 2019 Model 3, and used to have a 2014 Model S. For all of the Teslas, the Homelink worked fine for the two garage doors but would NOT...

    Model S -> 3

    This: "The Model 3 compared to a 2014 or older MS is going to better in basically every single way." I sold my 2014 Model S 85 (no D, no AP) and bought a new Performance 3. It is absolutely better in every way, except a loaded Costco cart is a little trickier to load without invading the...

    one step driver door pull hack (cable tie)

    I have concluded that the user "seflorida" is either (or both) 1) a genius gag account, or 2) just peak Florida.

    Any Suggestion for Center Console Wrap?

    I wrapped my console this morning with a custom color from ev wraps. Turned out pretty well, except for a couple of small air bubbles I hope to get worked out with the help of a hair dryer. Hook 'em!

    Model 3 subwoofer install.

    I'm a new lurker on this thread, as I'm switching from my 2014 Model S to a Model 3 Performance later this week. One of the features I especially liked about the Model 3 vs. S was the sound system. I just had to respond to the OP's claim that the Model S subwoofer hit harder -- I have never...

    2014 vs 2017 Model S Comparo

    Reductive much? As the owner of a 2014 (September build) 85, anxiously awaiting the proverbial interior refresh to update mine -- hopefully before my warranty expires -- I found the review very informative and helpful. Thanks for posting

    New Navigation Coming This Weekend! (circa March 31, 2018)

    On the speed limit database issue... I had (perhaps laughably) assumed that the speed limit data came from the AP cameras seeing/reading speed limit signs and remembering the data -- basically building its own database. This assumption was based on the fact that my wife's AP1 Model S displays...

    Firmware 8.0

    I've been looking forward to Spotify arriving as well, and a google search this morning located the following: Tesla - Spotify Spotify seems to have let the cat out of the bag, confirming Ingineer's statement: Spotify is finally here, for real. Or at least, will be shortly at some...

    E-Captain Premium Center Console

    That console does look great, but I agree it's about $500 overpriced.

    Homelink very flaky

    Last week I started having a similar problem after nearly three months of problem-free operation. I have three settings in my homelink -- one for the driveway gate, and one for each garage door. The garage door openers have rolling code security, which made initial programming a couple steps...

    Tesla recalls entire Model S fleet for seat belts

    I also received no email. Did anyone?

    Better range after 7.0 upgrade?

    I definitely do not think that A/C & heat have been taken out of the calculation. Doing a lot of short trips yesterday, I had very high initial consumption that I attributed to the aggressive A/C compressor utilization under v7. But on the one 20+ mile trip that I took, I still saw the ~8-10%...
