    Location and fix of rattles in new m3p

    The tesla service center near me just wedges a little piece of high density foam btw the windshield side of the speaker grill and that little narrow strip of plastic trim. It's enough pressure to keep if from making noise, but it's a crappy 'fix' and it creates a gap btw the grill and trim...

    New M3 2020 Owner….Maybe…

    Make sure you are buying what you think you are buying. Carvana might list it as have Enhanced Auto Pilot (EAP) but it might only have basic Auto Pilot. Or they list it as have Full Self Driving (FSD) but it does not. Perhaps they claim it's a Performance but it's just the Long Range. There...

    Replaced Air Filters, still musty/old smelling.

    So the PT Sensors (2 HP, 1 LP) were replaced not because of the smell issue but due to "Bulletin Replacement of A/C Pressure/Temperature Sensors". So those were just a TSB and 100% covered. The odor issue was addressed just like it is for everyone else. "A/C Odor Removal (Using Evaporator...

    Replaced Air Filters, still musty/old smelling.

    FWIW, my '21 M3 is only 4 months old with around 5K miles and the smell is pretty bad at startup. The car it replaced was 9 years old with 214K miles and never had a musty smell from the HVAC system. I've got a service appt for next week and they've updated my service ticket that they've...

    Just venting over “first scratch”

    Since you are in Dallas, I can highly recommend Roberto of Premium Wheel. He's a mobile service and does excellent work. Just send him a text with a pic and he'll give you a quote. He quoted me $75 and performed the repair at my house on a Sat morning. Roberto Avitia 214-475-1729

    Dash speaker grill is notorious for rattles as well...especially on driver's side (US).

    Wheel Rash...while in body shop

    Moral of the story: document the condition of your vehicle upon arrival at a service center and don't leave the service center until after you've inspected your vehicle. At this point there is zero proof that the curb rash occurred at the shop.

    Sport rims curb rash

    I couldn't agree more. I used a mobile service that did all the work at my house. The cost was $80 (DFW) to repair the one rim that was damaged. Additional rims would have been less expensive had I damaged more than one. It took the guy about 30-45 min and the repair is perfect in all regards.

    What's your best piece of Advice for a newbie?

    I'm just hoping you fully scoped out those public chargers near you prior to purchase. How often and at what times are they generally occupied, what is their actual current output, cost, etc. As much as I love my Model 3, if I couldn't charge overnight in my own garage I would get rid of it.

    Charging Questions for Possible M3SR[+] Owner.

    My advice is to install a NEMA 14-50 outlet in your garage. Call around and get some quotes; don't mention it's for Tesla as that doesn't matter and many electricians like to gouge for EV related installs. Depending on your panel's location the cost might not be much at all. It's well worth...

    Hansshow Audio Upgrade? (SR+)

    From the looks of the harness/instructions as well as knowing the dedicated molex connectors for the A pillar tweeters are no longer present in the 2021, I believe the only real differences are step 3 and 6. Instead of inserting a molex that the adapter provides into vacant plugs in the pre...

    Hansshow Audio Upgrade? (SR+)

    It actually does pretty well down to about 60hz and then drops off at about 15 db/octave. RTA of 2021 SR+, EQ flat, fader center, immersive sound off:

    Sound when doors are locked

    To each their own hence why I wish there was an option to increase the honk volume (not even sure if that's possible), the length or the honk, or perhaps the number of honks. By the time the car auto-locks I'm pretty far away (perhaps my phone has strong bluetooth). Yes, I can open the app but...

    Sound when doors are locked

    You can definitely set it to make a short honk when they lock. The problem is the honk is quick and not very loud. If there are any sort of ambient noises the chances of hearing it are fair to none.
