    Tesla July orders- MYLR Delivery Status

    I ordered 7/15 but didn’t complete registration/insurance info until a couple weeks ago (hemming and hawing about selling my 3). Is it like I didn’t order until a couple of weeks ago?

    Illuminated Door Sills - Tesla Shop

    Just some of the old sticky residue smudged there.

    Illuminated Door Sills - Tesla Shop

    I finally got it to work! I have no idea how or why it started working. After starting yesterday at the template locations (again, paying attention to differences between left/right door placement), then making micro-adjustments in/out/front/back, I randomly settled on the placement of the...

    Illuminated Door Sills - Tesla Shop

    Thx — still couldn’t do it this morning despite confirming the location needed to activate the sensor on the sill plate by removing the magnet and waving it over the plate “freehand,” then mirroring that location on the door itself as best as possible. It’s crazy and I’ve also emailed Tesla...

    Illuminated Door Sills - Tesla Shop

    Yeah, I relocated the magnet a few times on the door (including Raj’s method) and it still doesn’t light up. Will keep playing with it, but it sucks to keep unsticking the magnet.

    Illuminated Door Sills - Tesla Shop

    I bought these and just installed and cannot get it to light. I know it’s because of the magnet location because when I pulled the magnet off and placed it over the sill at a certain place, it turns on then off when I wave the magnet away. So at least on my 2019, the template for magnet...

    Front windows roll up speed?

    So odd, my windows were super slow going up when I took delivery, so much so that I got it checked out within a couple of weeks (was told it was normal). Then somehow, miraculously, over the years they are now almost normal speed without any kind of intervention! I literally think about it...

    19” TSportline TSS Satin Gray Wheelset

    Model 3. Sorry, just checked the website and looks like Model Y sizing is wider.

    19” TSportline TSS Satin Gray Wheelset

    Hot summer days call for Hot summer (all-season) wheels! These look just like the famed Tesla Arachnid rims and are powder-coated satin “Evo Gray”. I did not like the gloss paint that came on the wheel. They include Tesla center caps and tpms with Pirelli Cinturato P7 All-Season Plus II...

    Major 2021 Model X refresh pending [Update: Unveiled January 27, 2021]

    Do you guys see/read anything in the refresh that addresses acceleration shudder? Also hope they did something with the front control arms.

    Vendor NEW: MPP Model 3 Comfort Adjustable Coilovers RWD/AWD!

    I actually did the install myself. Just watched a couple of yt vidwow and read a lot here. Worst part was doing it in a hot garage in the summer. btw, I ended up dropping the rear 5mm (after raising it from recommended settings), so looks like the instructions were right on. Go figure, lol. I...

    3 years on, I have decided to move on from my beloved X

    I have a late 2017 X100D. Driving dynamics,torque, speed are simply unmatched and are worth the shortcomings for me (mainly cabin storage space and second row armrests in the 6-seater). I’m amazed at how awesome the car feels just zipping around town on errands or on long road trips as a cruise...

    About to Purchase - Possible to Trade Uberturbine Wheels?

    Major 2021 Model X refresh pending [Update: Unveiled January 27, 2021]

    I love my 2017 X100D, but a refresh or redesigned X should just get rid of the falcon wing doors to start. Less expensive to manufacture and service; higher margins, I’d assume. Original X owners would he happy they have a collector’s item. Just make a bigger Y with air suspension, more...

    New 2021 Model 3 and iPhone 12 pro max

    I have that version 2 Taptes charger. For an IPhone 12 Pro Max with generic clear case, the charging in landscape position is not reliable. I ha e not checked it without the case but I don’t plan on using my phone without a case...

    Hummer EV

    Well, someone has to post this here, lol. Introducing the GMC HUMMER EV | Electric Truck Looks pretty well thought out, and from a company that knows how to build trucks. Not as revolutionary as the Cybertruck, but who ever said it has to be? Pretty expensive, though. If it does everything...

    New Uberturbine wheels coming to Model 3

    How about these? 19 or 20”, gray, silver, or black. Tesla Model 3 Wheels-19" TSV Flow Forged Tesla Wheel (Set of 4) - T Sportline - Tesla Model S, 3, X & Y Accessories I’d actually like to get them for my Model X. Somehow I feel like they give the 3 an old Cadillac look.

    Tesla Offer Trunk/Frunk Group Buy (3/S/X)

    I just installed mine and noticed the same thing. I didn’t think it was a big deal bc it lifted that leading edge of the bracket maybe a millimeter at most and did not preclude the bolt from being screwed in tight (at least not on my bracket). Also, I think the articulation of the ball joint...

    Vendor NEW: MPP Model 3 Comfort Adjustable Coilovers RWD/AWD!

    Here are some pics of my car on the comfort adjustables. I’d guess it’s a mild 1” drop or so. I didn’t take a profile pic bc another car was parked next to me and I’m too lazy to walk out and take another shot, lol...

    Volk Te37 Ultra w/ Michelin pilot sport 4s and TPMS 20x8.5 +36 5x114.3

    Awesome setup. Are you running spacers with these wheels on your P3D+?

    Vendor NEW: MPP Model 3 Comfort Adjustable Coilovers RWD/AWD!

    Posted this elsewhere, but realized it might have been in the wrong thread... I installed the adjustable comfort coilovers a couple of weeks ago. I adjusted the ride height to MPP suggested settings, but had to go back in and raise the rear by about 5-6mm as it sat lower than the front when...

    MPP Comfort Coilover reviews?

    I installed the adjustable comfort coilovers a couple of weeks ago; not sure if that’s what you are getting. I adjusted the ride height to MPP suggested settings, but had to go back in and raise the rear by about 5-6mm as it sat lower than the front when comparing hub to fender distances...

    Lug Stud Replacements

    Done (one wheel)! Tried one more time to slip the longer studs in without loosening the hub, but nothing worked so had to get at those bolts in the rear of the hub per @Firehuntah’s video. For anyone trying this, it really helps to have varying depth sockets and extensions to sneak between the...

    Lug Stud Replacements

    Haha, this is definitely turning into a game of Tetris combined with how many times can I take my wheel +/- rotors off! I literally rotated the hub 360 deg and could not get the right angle to get the new stud in. On the other hand, I know you did it successfully... Can you remember which...

    Lug Stud Replacements

    Ahh, the best laid plans... All set up to do the stud replacement just now, following all references above. Knocked the stock stud out with a ball peen hammer no problem. New problem: even without the dust shields (which were removed previously), the shape of the knuckle behind the hub just...

    Lug Stud Replacements

    Thanks, brother -- you've been super helpful. All of this just to get some spacers in, lol. @beastmode13 did include a link to his build thread above for that video. The stud installer tool -- is that the cylinder looking black thing? If so, I've ordered it from Amazon.

    Lug Stud Replacements

    Just checked my rear hub: The stock studs on my 2019 Performance have round heads, not cut. They seat very close to the hub seals but not touching them. So looks like I’ll have to do this mod myself now, lol. I don’t plan on taking the hub off (ie will carefully use hammer method) — I’m...

    FS: Model 3 Performance Suspension

    These are take offs from a 2019 Model 3 performance and have about 7000 miles on them — in great shape. Should drop ride height a bit and improve handling. Asking $400 + $50 shipping.

    Lug Stud Replacements

    Really appreciate everyone’s input! I’ll report back here once everything is installed. @Firehuntah, do you have a pic of how the lugs look on your wheels after the longer studs were installed? Or basically, it looks normal? I’m running the Tesla Zero-G wheels and suspect the plastic lug...

    Lug Stud Replacements

    I should have mentioned that I’m running MPP brake rotors on my P3D+ so removed front and rear dust shields during install. Incidentally, mine were full round so I used tin snips to cut through them and pull them out. Hopefully this might make room for the studs per @Mash...

    Lug Stud Replacements

    Beautiful, thx! How much extra length did those provide? Jokes aside . Any issues with them sticking out too far from the wheel on the other side (depending on wheel/spacer used)?

    Lug Stud Replacements

    Sorry, after reading this and the other thread through — is there consensus on which specific (longer) studs will work on a Model 3 Performance (with perf brakes)? I’m just looking for about .5” longer than stock.
