    Unhappy with how trade in value decreased for unexplained reason

    On a trade in of a Tesla, in Denver, Tesla offer is running nearly $10k BELOW what CarMax offered me for my Model 3 SR+. Details here: https://teslamotorsclub.com/tmc/posts/5599603/

    WTB: Tesla Gen2 Mobile charging adapter with 20 ft cable

    I want to buy the standard Gen2 Mobile Connector, the one that works on all the Models S / X / 3 / Y. Anyone have one where maybe the car got in an accident or whatever?

    Price of used Model 3s is amazing right now! [Summer 2021]

    CarMax gave me a new offer: $37,000 for my 2019 grey Model 3 SR+ with just under 19k miles, for which I paid only $36,000 list in April 2019, 2+ yrs ago. ... but actually paid just $27,250 after Federal and Colorado state incentives came in when I filed my taxes. That's 103% of list.--or...

    Where should we discuss US tax incentives in the infrastructure bill currently being debated in Congress?

    What is the best subforum (or existing thread) for following the 2Q2021 infrastructure EV purchase tax incentive policy debate in the US? The topic doesn't seem to fit in the Tesla model-specific forums, and I've been surprised to not find a thread on it in the Energy, Environment, and Policy...

    What subforum for following the 2Q2021 US infrastructure tax incentive policy debate?

    What is the best thread for following the following the 2Q2021 infrastructure EV purchase tax incentive policy debate for the US? I was surprised not to find a thread on it in this subforum (Energy, Environment, and Policy), so maybe there is a better place for it?

    FAQ: Home Tesla charging infrastructure Q&A

    I wouldn't call it a "money saving strategy." It's just that, oftentimes, manufacturers very much want to differentiate their products into lower cost products for the most price sensitive buyers while having higher end (but very similar) products attract less price sensitive buyers. Just...

    Price of used Model 3s is amazing right now! [Summer 2021]

    Not really either of those. I just wanted to share the astonishing high price I've been offered by CarMax (and Carvana) for my particular 2019 Mod3 ST+. Seemed others might find it interesting. So I put a post into the Tesla for sale subforum a few minutes ago...

    FAQ: Home Tesla charging infrastructure Q&A

    Yes, thanks @tga for the good info! And I've got one more question: if someone purchases a new Model Y now, in 2021, it sounds like Tesla includes only the "Gen 2 mobile connector"... so even after purchase of the 14-50 adapter, would it be limited to charging at 32 A? ... because of the Gen2...

    General chit-chat in "For Sale" threads

    Hi. I'm amazed to find the apparently ultra high value my 2019 Model 3 SR+ has retained. I live in the Denver area and paid $36,000 for my "base model" "Standard Range" Model 3 in April 2019, paying only the $1000 extra for a non-base color. Tesla fulfilled my order with an SR+, not an SR...

    Price of used Model 3s is amazing right now! [Summer 2021]

    Where is the proper forum to discuss Model 3 "used vehicle" sales? It doesn't seem to be included within the scope listed for this "Ordering/Production/Delivery" area... but I cannot find where such content should go. Thanks for the help!

    FAQ: Home Tesla charging infrastructure Q&A

    Hi all. It's been a long time since I've been on the TMC forum. DIdn't find my question answered in the sticky post. I see on the Tesla website that they currently (May 2021) sell: "Gen 2 Mobile Connector Bundle" - US$275 with only the 120V std plug only (NEMA 5-15 adapter)...

    Your Model 3 Standard Range (is being software limited)

    I'm the OP on this thread two months ago today, and I had ordered an SR, which I received in April 2019. Was told many weeks ago that a software upgrade was "coming soon" that would decrease the SR+ capability I'd been given (240 miles, etc.) down to SR (220 miles, ...) I just went out and...

    Wiper Default to OFF

    I've left mine set for "Auto", and they just automatically start working the next time the water comes. Seems a reasonably good sensor and detection algorithm to me.

    What is the top speed of a Model 3 SR? (standard range)

    That is super info WstrnMdwlrk. I wonder if you could add how you got that? Measured by a test you ran? Read it in some EV webzine source? Tested by some car testing outfit? or (which I doubt) published by Tesla?

    Your Model 3 Standard Range (is being software limited)

    Many of us who ordered base model Model 3s, the "Standard Range" or SR RWD version, right after Tesla first made them available, were delivered Model 3 SR+ battery packs (240 mile range) and SR+ software, giving us truly 240 mile range. I received my Model 3 on 18 April, and I've charged to...

    Tesla Sentry Mode in Action

    Once a higher percentage of Model 3 owners have bought the base model like I did, and with the Fed and Colorado subsidies paid only $27,250, they'll learn Model 3's aren't so special. Heck, most of the SUV's filling the streets and places I see cost a LOT more than my Model 3. They probably...

    Ideal amps for charging long range model 3 at home

    @forestlinden , I'm in Colorado as you are and I'm going to install my own 50 amp NEMA 14-50 (240 volt) outlet on a new 60 amp rated circuit in the coming weeks. I'm going to add a 60 A breaker and wire rated for 60 A so that, should I want to in the future, I could easily add the Tesla Wall...

    SpaceX's Rising Tide - Discussion of non-SpaceX launch companies

    Since SpaceX brought real economic-driven competition into the global launch industry since ~2015, they have been eating the commercial launch market. See the graph in this article about how SpaceX went from zero commercial launches in 2010-2012 to near parity in 2015 and then more than any...

    What is the nominal battery voltage for the Tesla Model 3 batt pack options?

    Yeah, very homegrown. here's the first tweet in the series when I kicked it off on the day I received my Model 3, here's the torque/current/speed and top-speed theory day, and here's when I had fun identifying my EV conversion as "ugly and slow and boring, like a golf cart" which is exactly...

    What is the nominal battery voltage for the Tesla Model 3 batt pack options?

    Hey @Zoomit. I finished getting the data I wanted to collect for that comparison matrix, and posted this two-tweet thread on Twitter today, to end the 30 days of stories I've been telling about my first EV (named Rex) that I built from a junkyard Mazda RX-3 in 1980, and drove from 1980-2003...

    What is the top speed of a Model 3 SR? (standard range)

    What is the top speed of a standard range Model 3? This is the base $35,000 model I'm asking about. I'm not a speed driver, so will never see it, but I wonder if there is any good data from those who have tested this on a track?

    What is the nominal battery voltage for the Tesla Model 3 batt pack options?

    That is all super helpful @Zoomit. I built an EV conversion in 1980, from an old junkyard Mazda RX-3. Sold it to a guy in Wisconsin in 2003. I decided to tell a bit of its history and comparison to my base model Tesla Model 3, writing a few tweets on Twitter most days since the day I got my...

    What is the nominal battery voltage for the Tesla Model 3 batt pack options?

    That is very helpful Zoomit. Is there a good short definition of "s" and of "p"? I don't see a legend anywhere and this is just a bit Tesla inside-baseball esoteric.

    What is the nominal battery voltage for the Tesla Model 3 batt pack options?

    Does that mean all of the battery strings in all Model 3 batt pack always have 96-batteries in a serial string? ... and that therefore, the various batt packs of diverse kWh energy capacity are merely built up of more or fewer of these 96-battery "modules"? That would be super cool to find...

    How many kWh are in the Tesla Model 3 batt pack options

    Thanks. I got there and have rated your post as super helpful!

    Which numbers should I believe?

    That is very interesting empirical data that ABRP has collected from some decent sample of Teslas. But it is not looking merely at the efficiency of the car moving at various speeds (something the driver can control) or how rapidly or how chill the driver chooses to accelerate the vehicle. It...

    What is the nominal battery voltage for the Tesla Model 3 batt pack options?

    Are there any public specifications, from Tesla or from the after-market technicians who've examined Model 3's in the wild, that specify the nominal Li-ion battery voltage for each of the various Model 3 configurations? I got the following battery energy storage specs from @Zoomit earlier...

    Which numbers should I believe?

    That is a great nuance, @darth_vad3r . There are definitely multiple factors at play, and not merely the two (velocity of the vehicle and electrical current in the various battery/pack/inverter/motor wiring, and there might be some strange optimizations as many of the factors combine together...

    How many kWh are in the Tesla Model 3 batt pack options

    That is super helpful @Zoomit. I tried to give your post a thumbs up, but can't see how to do that. (maybe not allowed 'cause I'm a new user just today)

    How many kWh are in the Tesla Model 3 batt pack options

    I'm a bit confused. How many kWh are in the various model options for a Tesla Model 3? ... per the Tesla specification. I see the EPA mileage numbers, but want to better understand the specs on the kWh in the variously sized batt packs? Standard Range ? Standard Range+ ? Enhanced? Long range...

    Mildly worried about the deposit

    My view. If you are "worried", then you have a decision to make. If the cost and hassle in your personal life of the anxiety on this point is exceeding the benefit you expect to obtain from having a reservation in on a Tesla Roadster 2020, then you should submit your cancellation and get the...

    Which numbers should I believe?

    Hi. Good questions @maverick3n1 and a bunch of good data on your first week with a Model 3. I've had my Model 3 just a month, and love the car, but will hold off sharing my experiences for another post. This is my first post here on the TMC forum. Here I'll just make two physics-based...
