    Phone Mounts in the Model 3;

    Hi All. I was thinking of using a suction cup type of cell phone mount on either the dash or the white interior dash trim, but was wondering if that’d end up damaging the surface.

    Travelling without charging stations?

    Hi All. I was contemplating getting a Tesla, but was wondering what life would be like if you couldn't recharge. What happens when you want to take a long trip and there's no charging station or outlet is handy? thanks, - Frank
