    Performance winter tires for M3P and 18" vs 19" wheels

    Ah. Got it. Sorry, I don't have a clear idea. I don't follow the latest model differences closely.

    Performance winter tires for M3P and 18" vs 19" wheels

    I don't know where you got 2% and 7% numbers. If this is anecdotal evidence from different people on the forum I wouldn't put much weight on those numbers. Most of the difference is coming from different energy losses translated to rotational friction in the side walls of lower and higher...

    Performance winter tires for M3P and 18" vs 19" wheels

    Had to navigate around shortages and delays. Wanted Tesla specific Ohm (TSW) wheels but it sounded like TSW was acquired and they no longer available. Went with T Sport line. Michelin Pilot Alpine tires were sold out in R18 so I had to go with Pirelli tires. Such times.

    Performance winter tires for M3P and 18" vs 19" wheels

    Hello! I have worn a set of winter tires in 2 1/2 winters and would like to get input from the community on the new ones. First a report. I am a skier in Seattle area and drive my 2018 M3P to ski resorts in Seattle area and also to British Columbia, Canada many times a year. I wanted a balance...

    Aftermarket coilovers and warranty repairs

    Just an FYI: any suspension modification may result in Tesla not covering warranty repairs of seemingly unrelated suspension components. I took my 2018 M3P to repair/replace wheel bearing (that developed a typical failing sound as I was told) and the manager told me that this can't be covered...

    MASTER THREAD: FSD Subscription Available 16 Jul 2021

    I have EAP with HW2.5. Do you know if it is worth upgrading to HW3 for $1500. Will the existing EAP functions work better with the new hardware? By better I don't just mean better visualizations.

    Model Y Perf or BMW X3M?

    So, what story are you going to tell tomorrow? You got another BMW? Or you ordered your car from your phone and they delivered it to your house in a week or two? ;-) I am one valuing driving experience and being able to drive the way I want without attracting attention. I got a grey Model 3...

    Suspension differences - LR-AWD vs. Performance

    When I was looking there where Mountain Pass Performance and Unplugged Performance. I went with Mountain Pass Performance sport coilovers. You should do your research given that there's are a few more companies that supply suspensions for Model 3 now. There are quite a few threads on this forum...

    Suspension differences - LR-AWD vs. Performance

    If so, I concur with one of the comments above: get an AWD and invest into tires and an aftermarket suspension upgrade. The handling will be better than P. Depending on what you are used to and what good handling means for you, you may want to look at a comfort or sport aftermarket suspension...

    Tesla removes regenerative braking strength option

    RE: "using low/chill is mandatory in winter": not mandatory but I imagine there's a good percentage of drivers that would feel safer driving on the snow and ice with low regen. I was giving a spirited driver POV. I'll be very sorry to loose low regen. My Model 3P was never a perfect car on the...

    Tesla removes regenerative braking strength option

    I think you were getting to the right point - Chill Mode and Low Regen just remap your foot sensitivity to be able to modulate the accelerator pedal. I see a few people agree with you in this thread that this these modes are not needed for real winter driving. However, my experience is...

    Aftermarket Suspension with OEM Height and Softer Ride

    For a period of a few months I heard loud creaking when steering while stationary and then it went away. I thought it might be the flimsy thin plastic shims at the top of MPP Sport springs not working but it may have started right before I put them, I can't trust my memory after months passed...

    Aftermarket Suspension with OEM Height and Softer Ride

    Pardon my naive question: what are the signs of the upper control arms failing?

    Unpleasant Experience nearly running out of charge on M6

    You take AWD (or P-) - it matches predicted range in reasonable situations, take P+ - it doesn't, by 20-30%. Yes, there are reasons, but they don't improve experience of new owners. The rather not cheap car turns out to not be as usable as many counted it to be. I still have some frustration...

    Unpleasant Experience nearly running out of charge on M6

    When I run winter tires it does not get better. Michelin PA4 - performance winter tires - are closer to all seasons than to proper winters. They don't give me better range. And I have tried 45 PSI and it does not help my M3P in any significant way to get closer to AWD range either. 20" wheels...
