    my longest drive so far (274 miles)

    The reason I mentioned that is I was looking at some tire specs on Tirerack and there are 2 specs listed in regard to tire width one is called tread width, the other is section width. The section width number, when converted to mm, was the same as the tire size. The tread width was smaller.

    my longest drive so far (274 miles)

    I believe the 255 number is the total width of the tire measured from sidewall to sidewall, not the tread width which would be a smaller number.

    Replaced a flat with T2 instead of T0

    I’d say so. Please have mercy on this dead horse.

    my longest drive so far (274 miles)

    Big fan of those wheels. What tires did you put on, and how did all those changes affect ride and handling?

    OEM HEPA filters done after 1~ year?

    So for this set I’ll need to visually check them to see actual condition. Still have good air flow and no off odors so I’ll give it a few more months.

    OEM HEPA filters done after 1~ year?

    2023 MYLR. I’m 14 months and 27,000 miles in, and my numbers from service mode are 97% HEPA and 111% cabin filter. Not sure how that’s possible, but will monitor periodically.

    Tein EnduraPro Plus adjustable shock absorbers fitted

    Here’s the spring compressor I used. It’s totally doable if you’ve done any amount of wrenching. Just be careful using the spring compressor. You can check out the install instructions on MPP or Redwood sites for general procedures, though you’ll need to follow manufacturer-specific component...

    This from notateslaapp.com Update: Intel vehicles are only getting the full screen visualizations if they have FSD and they’re in the U.S. or Canada. It’s not clear why the full screen visualization option is not available without FSD since other vehicles without FSD, but with the AMD processor...

    Charging Status in Tesla App

    Charging at 120 volts @ 12 amps is very inefficient. The car uses 400 watts to run the charging hardware, so you are drawing 1440 watts of power (120v*12A) but only utilizing 1040 watts to charge the battery. Roughly just 70% efficiency. Using a 240v at 32A, 7680 watts, charging efficiency goes...

    Help adjusting coilovers

    For the fronts, if you’re raising one corner at a time, loosen the damper to bushing bolt and disconnect the stabilizer bar. (The stabilizer bar restricts lifting at a certain point.) Now lift the suspension and measure from top of fender well to hub center to desired height. This also...

    Will my M3LR Modern Spare work on new MYP?

    I had the same situation. Modern spare sells just the tire for MY which uses the same wheel. IIRC it was ~$100. This is what I did.

    Spare Tire Installed!

    Implemented this hack this afternoon. Pushing back the foam was harder than anticipated. Looks good though. Hope there’s no additional noise generated from not having the sub-trunk tub.

    Tein EnduraPro Issue - Squeaking Noise

    Have you consider that it might be a piece of dirt or gravel wedged between the brake caliper and the rotor. This came to mind when you mentioned the squeak got louder after a car wash. On my previous M3 I always had a squeak from the rear brake(s) after I washed the car. Mike didn’t persist...

    Done giving Tesla the benefit of the doubt on Autopilot and adaptive cruise control- it's JUNK.

    I see. .was not aware! Almost makes me want that to happen.😫

    Curious to know what issues you have with TACC. I have very little to complain about with mine. The unexpected braking thing is now a rare occurrence

    Tein EnduraPro Plus adjustable shock absorbers fitted

    The install is not difficult. The most tedious part is compressing the front springs and locating them in the correct orientation on the new dampers. Rear is simple.

    No, but doesn’t seem like rocket science. One could always inquire with Dinan or one of their retailers.

    Discussion : All discussion regarding Model 3 and Tax credit in model 3 subforum

    Are you saying that if one does not take the credit from the dealer that he does not get the same tax credit treatment and can only get the full 7500 credit if his total tax for the year is over 7500? Don’t know why anyone would not take the dealer credit, but it sounds discriminatory to...

    Still would likely work better than trimming the original ones for non-Dinan springs.

    Discussion : All discussion regarding Model 3 and Tax credit in model 3 subforum

    That is indeed how it now works. I was not able to get the full 7500 on my 2023 return as my total tax was less than 7500, but this year I would qualify 🥵. Guess I’ll have to go buy another one this year just so I can get the credit!!
  31. Occhis

    Discussion : All discussion regarding Model 3 and Tax credit in model 3 subforum

    Yes you would get the credit at the dealer, but if 7500 exceeds your total tax liability then you must pay IRS back for the difference. That’s the “non-refundable” part. As stated above you cannot have a net negative tax for the year.

    Are you satisfied with the range you get?

    My single experience on 2019 M3LR was 11% degradation at 46,000 miles after 4 years.

    Does anyone know if the mounting nuts are present behind the interior trunk coverings in all versions, so that after market anchors could be fitted?

    But then you don’t get the new wheels, seats, steering, adaptive suspension, etc.
  37. Occhis

    Are you satisfied with the range you get?

    I understand the math, but if you’re going much under 75 on a 70 speed limit road, you’ll get run over and piss a lot of folks off. Angry tailgaiters are everywhere.

    Replacement Tires for 19" wheels

    MY only engages front motor under heavy acceleration or when the rear wheels start to slip, otherwise it’s a rear wheel drive car.

    Model Y Suspension Advice

    One possible solution might be to install thrust bearings. Might help at the extremes where the suspension is twisting the most.

    Are you satisfied with the range you get?

    219 wh/mi lifetime is amazingly low. I have the same mileage on 2023 MYLR, and mine is around 260. Most of my mileage (75%) is interstate 75-80 mph, so maybe that accounts for the difference.

    Wiper System V4

    After driving today in the rain, I’m gonna retract the comment above. Raining intermittently with some brighter skies and wipers were characteristically horrible. Wiping with no rain and not wiping with rain that completely covered the windshield. I waited and waited for them to kick in but had...

    Wiper System V4

    Although I still do get random dry weather wipes, wipers do work much better in the rain with the trial FSDP than I did before the update. Hoping this continues after the one month free period ends. I will not consider subscribing until FSD gets better than it is presently. Maybe I haven’t...
