    The Stealth Hitch is now complied in Australia thanks to TOCA!

    I've concluded that they just don't give a sh!t. Sales are already outstripping demand. We're a small market, so it's not worth the hassle for them. Also, no, what scomo said is not true at present, and was not true when he said it. This suggests to me that they've given up on the towbar idea...

    The Stealth Hitch is now complied in Australia thanks to TOCA!

    Actually EU tow bars are already accepted under ADR. So there is literally no red tape. There is exactly zero extra regulatory approvals to do, as the car is already certified for towing in Australia.

    Spotify: Bluetooth vs Tesla built in app

    If I knew that, I wouldn't be asking haha! I think someone (maybe in this thread) estimated it based on wifi usage, but I don't think anyone has managed a direct measurement.

    Spotify: Bluetooth vs Tesla built in app

    Has anyone else noticed that in-car Spotify sounds better than it used to? Green mentioned it on twitter a couple weeks ago, so I had a listen myself, and I agree. When comparing against my bluetooth stream, I find it very hard to tell the difference now. I think Tesla have finally uncorked the...

    Has Spotify bitrate increased??

    I don't use immersive sound at all. I always have it off. I doubt it's anything on Spotifys end, since Spotify Connect already streams at 320kbps by default. The consensus is that Tesla have likely been throttling it to save data. Now it sounds like they've lifted the restriction.

    Has Spotify bitrate increased??

    I haven't seen anyone talking about this, apart from @greentheonly mentioning it on twitter recently. This morning I checked for myself, and I think he might be right! For context; I stop short of claiming to be an audiophile, but I am pretty picky when it comes to music listening. I always...

    Any SR Owners Wired Up Map Pocket Lights?

    Waking up this old thread! I'm planning to get door pocket lights working in my 2020 3LR. Mine didn't come with them installed, and I'm actually the person that discovered the wiring harnesses were physically cut and unpowered. So I've ordered some lights from Tesla and I'm looking into to how...

    The Stealth Hitch is now complied in Australia thanks to TOCA!

    Just when in use. The car detects that the trailer lights are connected and enters trailer mode. I think you can manually deactivate trailer mode though, but I'd have to check to be sure.

    cyber truck tailgate

    I'm still bummed this never happened. I really really want air suspension in my 3, but don't really want to the hassle of aftermarket.

    The Stealth Hitch is now complied in Australia thanks to TOCA!

    I'm sworn to secrecy and have already said too much... You should also ask if you even want the tow package configured. Pros: - Deactivates the rear parking sensors - Apparently has a safety feature to detect and react to trailer sway Cons: - TACC only sets to current speed, rather than the...

    The Stealth Hitch is now complied in Australia thanks to TOCA!

    I was in the same boat as you until I got sick of waiting. Earlier in this thread I discussed it; I imported an OEM tow bar from Norway, which also came with the wiring system. It was just plug and play to the existing wiring loom already in the car. All the lights worked straight away, but...

    The Stealth Hitch is now complied in Australia thanks to TOCA!

    Direct quotes from Tesla emails I received: "Be advised if there's any damage caused as a direct result of the installation of a third party tow bar will void your warranty." Then clarified further: "Regarding the Warranty point raised by my colleague [redacted], that is correct it is in...

    Online survey on fostering and improving electric vehicles and the adoption of its services (Tesla cars as case study).

    I got a fair way through it, but the questions don't quite sit right with me. Hard to explain, but they're a bit weird and seem like the results could be taken with different meanings than the respondents intended. Some questions can be interpreted in different ways, some seem conditional or...

    Model 3 headlights adjustable?

    Over 20 months of ownership I've learned a lot about how the headlights in the Model 3 work. I have the older style lights, but I'm pretty confident that what I'm about to tell you holds true for the new style lights too. I hate the Model 3 headlights (short throw being one of the reasons), so...

    Do latest Oz Model 3’s come with radar, passenger lumbar support & boombox?

    Worth mentioning that the radar question likely doesn't matter. It's expected that even cars with radars will have those radars turned off anyway, as all the cars transition to vision-only software.

    Replacing Tyres on Model 3 - Tesla versus Tyre store

    There's more to it than that though. Mine was aligned within spec, the steering wheel was straight and the car tracked straight, but the rear tyres were getting dangerous wear patterns.

    The Stealth Hitch is now complied in Australia thanks to TOCA!

    It's interesting because in EU it's allowed for bike racks. The EU model 3 manual even has guidelines for how to do it correctly. I use mine for a bike rack 🤷‍♂️

    Replacing Tyres on Model 3 - Tesla versus Tyre store

    I've got Yokohama BluEarth-GT AE51 on my 19in wheels. I'm at 37,000km and expect to get around 45,000km total. My only complaint is that they don't have that thick rubber lip to protect rims, so I'm getting stone chips on the rims edges. They corner like the car's on rails, but straight line...

    The Stealth Hitch is now complied in Australia thanks to TOCA!

    It's second hand from a wrecker. It was $800 for the tow bar and $500 for shipping. If you go this route, pricing will depend on the seller. I also found that many sellers won't ship outside of EU.

    First Australian-made Seat Covers for Model 3 - Neoprene

    I just noticed that they're now available on their website. For exactly what I got (front and rear) it's $644. Just front is $299. Pretty reasonable imo.

    The Stealth Hitch is now complied in Australia thanks to TOCA!

    For anyone interested in my tow bar story; Just before TOCA got this one approved, I got an OEM Model 3 tow bar from a wrecker in Norway. Cost me $1,300 landed. It's used, but perfectly fine and came with the OEM wiring. Just plug and play, but has a 13-pin EU style plug. Took me about 2.5hrs to...

    M3P - Who switched from a (true) sports car?

    This is the sheet from the alignment I got done straight after installing the springs. I ran like this for nearly a year, and was getting the inner edge rear tire wear. I more recently had Tesla redo the alignment, but they didn't give me a sheet. I've noticed it's still happening though. I...

    M3P - Who switched from a (true) sports car?

    I lowered my 2020 3LR a year ago (Eibachs about 1inch). The wheel alignment is all in spec (even had Tesla do it to make absolutely sure), but I'm still getting wear strips on the very inside edges of my rear tyres. Do you have any tips to prevent/reduce this? Do I need more toe in? And if so...

    Suspension Upgrades - Melbourne

    Hey @EcoCloudIT how long have you been lowered? Have you had any tyre wear issues? My 2020 LR has been on Eibachs for about 24000km and I'm having trouble with the rear tyres wearing a narrow strip on the very inside edge (pics attached). MyCar did the wheel alignment initially and it was all in...

    Light bar upgrade in Aus: suggestions & where have you mounted your switch?

    I'm after something very discrete and don't need a lot of extra light. I just want the highbeams to shine wider for country driving, so I'm planning to add 2x 30W LEDs into the air intake. They're about 20mm diameter, so similar to a bike light, but more than 3x as bright. It will all be very...

    Light bar upgrade in Aus: suggestions & where have you mounted your switch?

    Thanks @strykeroz but I'm only after a CANM8 module or similar. I'm doing a custom light set up. You could try the "Tesla Model 3 Australia" Facebook group. You could probably get 5 buyers together there.

    Supercharger - Geelong, Vic

    The time difference in negligible. Plus if you need to make an extra stop to get food on the way to the SC, you were better off going to the UR. Anyway, each to their own. UR works best for me in this case.

    Supercharger - Geelong, Vic

    The Chargefox Ultra-Rapids have been a far better option for me. If I'm ever stopping in Ballarat to charge, it's on a Friday evening and I'll be looking for dinner. Everything around the Tesla SCs close quite early, but the Ultra-Rapids are located near Grill'd, Nandos, Subway if you're early...

    Light bar upgrade in Aus: suggestions & where have you mounted your switch?

    No worries @strykeroz. It'll be a slow project for me too, but will let you know if/when I make any good progress. Currently just getting all my ducks in a row to see if I'm going to really tackle it. FYI the best price I've found so far is $169 from LAZER CANM8 Can-Bus High Beam Interface |...

    Light bar upgrade in Aus: suggestions & where have you mounted your switch?

    Hey mate, just wondering if you got your light bar installed and operational? Did you end up using the CANM8? The only other device I've managed to find is the one Bjorn used, but it's like 400 dollarydo's!

    Tesla Software updates - Australia

    Installed 2021.4.18 today, drove home in the dark. No forced auto-highbeams when using AP or TACC. I even flicked the highbeams on and off a couple of times, but definitely no forced auto. Thanks fudge!

    First Australian-made Seat Covers for Model 3 - Neoprene

    I now own the first (??) Australian made seat covers for a Model 3. I got SuperTrim in Dandenong, VIC to make them for me. Details: - 2.5mm Neoprene (mine are all black, but they have options for stitching colour, embroidery, and some textured/embossed materials) - Air-bag safe - Stitching...

    Spotify: Bluetooth vs Tesla built in app

    Still sounds like 96 to me. I'll subscribe to Tesla Premium Connectivity the day they bump it up to at least 256kbps. Until then, it's cheaper and better for me to use bluetooth.

    Victoria Charging the Regions EV network

    I reckon 75kW will be the sweet spot for me. Most times I pick a 50kW over a 100+kW so I don't have to rush my stop. Occasionally I find myself waiting a little bit longer on the 50kW chargers.

    Tesla Model 3 in Australia

    I've lowered mine 25mm (measured) with Eibach Pro-Kit springs. I do occasionally scrape, but actually it's not the battery pack belly that scrapes. It's the sill rails on the sides. Those plastic rail covers are the lowest points, hiding metal body flanges that are also lower than the battery.

    Sure did! It's been working perfectly ever since. I verified it's function a few more times, and can't get it to fail. It's actually not 15v. It's the same as the rest of the 12v system in the car.

    Spotify: 10 second skip forward/back like tune-in

    Rumour has it that we'll be getting a fully functioning (desktop style) Spotify with V11 UI. Anticipated to be rolling out before the end of the year. I really really hope the reports are correct, and it's actually good. I stopped using the in-car Spotify after about a month because of the low...

    Headrest material peeling off

    For everyone saying the seats are vinyl (PVC); they're not. They're polyurethane (PU). Some cleaners and particularly hand sanitizers often contain Isopropyl Alcohol (IPA), which is very bad for PU. Whereas PVC is totally compatible with IPA. Different chemicals differ in their compatibility...

    EAP for $5100 - are you buying it?

    It's like any new tech. Exotic and expensive now for first adopters, but eventually every manufacturer will have a decent self-driving tech, which will drive price competition. Eventually it'll get to the point that it becomes a standard feature, possibly even required by law for safety.
  44. corndog

    EAP for $5100 - are you buying it?

    If that's even close to the price, then I'll be waiting until FSD is mainstream and the price comes down. The functionality just is not worth that kind of money for a non-commercial user.

    12v battery question

    This might be a more complicated solution than you're looking for, but I installed 12v sockets in the boot, running directly from the penthouse 12v terminals under the rear seat. This stays powered as long as sentry mode is on, doesn't throw any errors and will never drain your 12v battery.

    EAP for $5100 - are you buying it?

    I have a hunch that we're going to see a FSD pricing structure change soon. Possibly by the end of the year, or roughly timed with the release of the AP/FSD software rewrite. As others have suggested, this EAP option is a push for end of quarter profit, but I also think it's a sign of changes to...
  47. corndog

    EAP for $5100 - are you buying it?

    Nah mate. I wouldn't even pay that for FSD. I'd pay maybe $2000 for FSD if it was fully realised. It's just way more money than it's worth for what it could ever do. inb4 people mention robotaxi making money. No way would I ever use my $100k car for that.

    Facelift Model3 Teaser

    When you guys are talking about do you mean that it adjusts the level every time the lights turn on? Or do you mean it can automatically find it's level when you go to the "adjust headlights" function in the service menu? I'm in Australia, so we get some kind of RHD EU spec car. My front and...

    Lowering for looks and preserve tire life. What should I know?

    I installed Eibach Pro-Kits 1in. The only alignment that needed fixing was the front toe. Everything else was in the green. Haven't driven on them long enough to see any adverse tyre wear yet.
