    Regenerative braking on icy roads

    That's very insightful, I'll keep it in mind this winter. I'll get back to you once I end up in the ditch. Shouldn't be too long.

    Tesla proximity warning - The worst in the industry!

    That and the beeping does change once you get close enough to an obstacle.

    2018 Model 3 LR RWD Charging limited to 32 amps?

    I used to have a M3 LR RWD and as others pointed out, it should be able to charge at 48 Amps. Mine did. I second @ucmndd's post, it's likely a PCS fault.

    Charge limited to 16/48a

    Assuming that this is not temperature related and didn't happen above 95% SoC you might have a problem with the on-board charger. There are three of them, each of which runs at up to 16 A. If two of them fail you'd be limited to 16 A. Sounds unlikely though that two units fail at the same time...

    Auto pilot and cruise control gone - multiple error messages

    Yes, in my case it always helped. Seems like it's a different issue with your car.

    Same here except they're only offering me 2022.36.6 right now. I still have a working radar in my car and I sure won't let AP take control over high beams and windshield wipers. Not going to give that away. I only hope they won't force an update at some point. I mean what's next? HVAC control...

    Auto pilot and cruise control gone - multiple error messages

    Happens every few weeks to my M3. Let it sit for a while and check if autopilot becomes available again. The service centre will only tell you that there is a software issue that will be fixed in a future update. If it stays like this you'll probably have to get it checked though.

    Tesla Wall charger on a "50 amp circuit"

    Depends what you call electricity. It will use less current (32 Amps instead of 48 Amps) but that also means you have to charge longer. The amount of energy you put into the battery is the same, so charging slower isn't going to save you any money if that was your question.

    Tesla Wall charger on a "50 amp circuit"

    There are literally dozens if not hundreds of threads about charging, wall connectors, wire sizes etc. Short answer: with a 50 Amp breaker you can pull 40 Amps continously (80%, rule) and the WC needs to be set up so it will report a max current of 40 Amps to a connected car. Nothing wrong...

    Wow, 36.5 is out

    It'll take a long time before I trust Tesla enough to install another "bugdate". Until then, no more OTA (online terror attack) for me.

    Is Regenerative braking a safety issue?

    I barely ever use the friction brakes and never had any issues when I did need them. Just because you never press the brake pedal doesn't mean they will never engage (read the manual). Plus, as of one of the more recent updates, the car can be programmed to use the friction brakes if regen is...

    Turn Off Speed Max Display

    It's always been there. And no, it can't be removed. As soon as AP is available it will show up.

    Can anyone recommend a heated steering wheel cover for the M3?

    Thanks @KenC. I'm surprised that it fits properly. To my knowledge the Model 3 steering wheel is less than 14" in diameter, that's why I never even looked at the 15" units. The 14.5" I had before was already a pretty loose fit. Maybe the one you have is more stretchy? I dunno. Anyway, thanks for...

    Can anyone recommend a heated steering wheel cover for the M3?

    Winter is coming to the great white north and sadly I have one of the older M3s that don't have a heated steering wheel. Due to the small size of the steering wheel I couldn't find a matching heated steering wheel cover. I've tried one that turned out to be total crap. Not only was it too large...
