    94V rating tire on M3 LR

    That of course is a rather confusing position to take. If you read, the Tesla spec's, they call for W rating; however, the fact of the matter is that an LR top speed is answered by the V rating. The Tesla factory has one inventory for both the LR and the performance model, which is the...

    "Proactive" 12v battery replacement - good idea or overkill?

    MS3 is four years old now and about to go out of warranty. 1) Should just go out buy the appropriate 12V battery and replace the current one? 2) Anything special needed to be done in the replacement or is it just swapping batteries in ICE car?

    Replacing W-speed rate tires with V-speed rated tires on M3L

    My 2020 M3L has a top speed of 140mph. The factory equipped it and all M3P with W-speed rated tires. It turns out that W-speed rated tires have a completely different and softer rubber than V-speed rated tires. V-rated tires are rated for 140. Also the warranty on V-rated tires is 50-60K...

    "Proactive" 12v battery replacement - good idea or overkill?

    My M3L is now 3.75 years old. Would I be crazy to just replace the 12v battery rather than wait for it to die? The battery looks trivial to replace. Am I wrong here

    Live in Tennessee but work in California. Want to buy in Cal but register in TN

    California law requires registration within 30 days of starting work in the state. It even has a email address where people can report cars that they are suspicious of working in California but have out of state licenses.

    Taken 2021 Model Y in to service center 4 times in last month for "Powertrain needs servicing,", still unresolved - Anyone on the other side of this?

    Adding 80mph limit for profile, appears to force all profiles into "Chill mode"

    Two profiles in my M3LR. One for me runs in regular mode mode with no speed limited mode. I converted my wife's profile to Chill mode as she doesn't like the hard acceleration. She also wanted speed limited to 80. When I change car to her profile and turned on speed limiter, it force my...

    3 month + wait for service. No rental, Tesla insurance no help

    My daughter had a similar problem with a repair taking so long. She filed a lemon declaration with Tesla. Magically parts appeared in two days. ==>I should comment that the Lemon law is different in every state, so that might not be possible in some states

    NEMA 6-50R

    I have a mobile connector and 6-50 and it works fine. The Tesla store sells a little kit that provides a support that goes under the mobile connector so it isn't "hanging" off of the 6-50. It also includes a arm that can be mounted on the wall next to the plug for keeping the charging cable in...

    Issues on trip from AZ to NY and Back

I had also gone to "a better route planner" to see what it showed. www.abetterrouteplanner.com It tends to optimze for total charging time, rather than number...

    On tesla site, it lists "Gen 2 Mobile connector Bundle" and "corded mobile connector"

    Former is $275 and the latter is $400. Only difference I see is once has 5-15 and the other has a 14-50. What is the reason for $125 difference? Does this mean the the mobile connector that comes with the car does NOT support the higher charging rates

    Cost of charge disappeared during supercharging

    This isn't a big deal. I was actually surprised when I was utilizing the free supercharger miles that it correctly no cost at the bottom right of the charging screen. So I incorrectly assumed that when I went back to paying for my miles that the number didn't accumulate anymore

    I had 1000 free supercharger miles from a referral. While I utilized them, the charge cost stayed at zero during the charge and I wasn't billed. I am back to paying for my supercharges, but the accumulated cost as it charges is staying at zero. Anyone else seen this?

    I am obviously missing something...Tesla allowing non-Tesla's to use Superchargers????

    The existence of the worldwide Superchanger network has been a huge differentiator for Tesla. Allowing other non-Tesla vehicles to use the Superchargers seems incorrect to me for several reasons: 1) Many Supercharger stations are already crowded during the day. Adding non-Tesla vehicles to...

    Best replacement tire for Michelin MXM4 Primacy

    I own a M3LR which has a top speed of 140mph. The OEM tire is W-rated which is need for M3P but is overkill for the M3LR. The reason for asking about this is that V-rated tires have a much better mileage warranted (typically between 50-70 thousand ) compared to the W-rated tires. Thoughts on...

    Auto open frunk for $15 [non electric]

    I changed both of the struts in front and back a year and half ago and have had no problems. The question of it being harder to close the frunk is actually bogus. If you read the user manual, it says to use two hands, so the question of using one hand is mute anyway

    There is a control to consider diamond lane in navigation...It doesn't seem to do anything
