    Phone Fast-Charging with USB-C PD

    Since my phone only charges at 5W on the wireless pad and that's not fast enough to do much good on my typical short trips, I've been working on a solution to use that 27W-capable USB-C port in the center console. We found a manufacturer to make USB-C cables in the proper dimensions, made an...

    HW3 TeslaCam Video Bitrate Increase

    Didn't realize until today that Tesla bumped the TeslaCam bit rate from 4 Mbit/s to 5.25 Mbit/s with the HW3 upgrade. Videos look better! Not great, but definitely improved.

    Aftermarket Suspension with OEM Height and Softer Ride

    After much reading, I'm still not convinced on which aftermarket suspension option will best meet my desired results of OEM height (or slightly less) and a smoother ride on my RWD Model 3. I don't care about the track. I'm looking for luxury grand touring car here or as close as I can get. Here...

    Abstract Ocean vs Cheap Screen Protector

    In my search for a perfect-fitting screen protector, I've now purchased 6 of them and none of them are perfect, despite what so many reviews say. Even though they're sold under different names, 4 of them turned out to be the same "Glass Screen Pro" protectors. Even more surprising is that the...

    Tempered glass clear screen protector that actually fits?

    Does anyone have a tempered glass clear screen protector that actually fits? Every one I've ordered, every YouTube video I've watched, and every forum recommendation I've checked out seems to have issues upon closer inspection. Abstract Ocean seems to be the default answer here, but judging...

    Aluminum Pedal Covers for the Model 3

    I didn't think much about my pedals until I saw a Performance 3 in person then I was jealous. They weren't too pricey, so I installed a set of these pedal covers today and I'm pretty pleased. They were a bit of a pain to install, but doable with a little patience.

    Improving WiFi in my Garage

    My wifi connection was slow and dropped out a lot in the garage, so I put in a Google WiFi setup that helped immensely. I was seeing connection speeds ranging from 19Mbps to 120Mbps before, but am now getting a consistent 250Mbps+. YMMV with everyone's unique layout and there are plenty of other...

    Bumper Cover Replacement Cost and Color Match

    I just had my pearl white bumper cover replaced after a minor fender bender. After being told by both the service center and the authorized body shop that the bumper would need to be painted, the part arrived already painted from the factory AND the paint color is a much closer match than my...

    Battery Capacity Not Adding Up

    Yesterday I charged to 99% and then drove 300 miles round trip without charging. I had 5% capacity left when I parked and my "Since Last Charge" trip meter showed 66 kWh used. Since I used 94% of the battery that day that leaves me to believe that my full battery capacity is 66 kWh / (99%-5%) =...

    Android App Always Active While in Background

    I've seen a noticeable decline in my Pixel 2's battery life since getting the Model 3. I suspect it has to do with the app being active in the background pretty much all day (see first screenshot). If I turn off background activity with the slider, things go back to normal, but using the phone...

    3M Crystalline Side Windows with Non-Crystalline Rear

    Since the rear glass already has an infrared-blocking coating, has anyone used a non-IR film on the back to save some cost and make installation easier? I definitely want crystalline on the sides, but I'm not sure it's necessary on the back if I can match the looks with a less expensive product.
