    Anyone interested in this HUD for your model 3

    What is an OBD-II Scanner? If this is a stable, reliable way of importing Tesla data, i.e. one Elon can't break with a firmware update, that puts this HUD back on my radar.

    Anyone interested in this HUD for your model 3

    I just looked at this again/for the first time and noticed it is an interface for smartphones and not our Teslas. I'd love to have a HUD but only as an integration with the car which I'd guess is not forthcoming. I try to avoid dueling interfaces, especially mapping. Will go back to lurking so...

    USB music - folder structure? "Embedded" cover art?

    Thanks, @FalconFour. Are you saying that art will not be displayed regardless of how we tag/embed?

    2021.12.25.6 update

    Yes .. feather the (regenerative) brake. I drove my 2 month old M3 from the Baltimore dealer location to my home in York and never used the actual brake. The first few times I took my foot off of the accelerator, I freaked thinking I had left the parking brake on. :)

    How long for Camera Calibration ?

    I prefer to show off the 50 to 80 time.

    Phantom braking fixed?

    Ditto. Shadows, too. Disconcerting.

    Charge port opens in carwash ... !!!

    I was more concerned that the electrons would escape. And I'd be part of their path.

    Charge port opens in carwash ... !!!

    Quirky, but manageable. Thanks, all. Been going to Q'Roo since 1979, not long after they hacked it out of the jungle.

    Charge port opens in carwash ... !!!

    OK, I select @PianoAl's answer. You other two need to be returned for regrooving.

    Charge port opens in carwash ... !!!

    I finished charging at a supercharger and drove a few tenths of a mile to a self serve/manual carwash. I am certain the port door closed after charging and that I didn't arrive with it open. But as I turn around with the wand in my hand from feeding my credit card to the machine, and the nozzle...

    Premium Connectivity Yearly Subscription?

    Is there a way to buy Premium Connectivity a full year at a time? I prefer to avoid monthly credit card charges.

    2021 wood trim: We don't like it? Why?

    The trim is finished with a urethane. Changing to a wax or an oil would require the urethane be removed first to get to the bare wood. That involves sanding and that scares me a bit. Plus the above video looks like there would be opportunities for me to eff it up. :oops: I'll probably just...

    2021 wood trim: We don't like it? Why?

    VINYL?! Aarrgghh .... If I knew how to remove the wood, I would refinish it to make it richer in color. Increase the "saturation" if you are a graphics person.

    2021 wood trim: We don't like it? Why?

    There are two schools of thought on finishing wood. Some ppl prefer a natural, matte look while others like a glossy and highly finished look. I generally prefer the natural look, but there are instances where I like to see gloss or semi-gloss. Sheen/gloss level aside, I do like the richness of...

    2021 wood trim: We don't like it? Why?

    I am wichyou on the accent. I'd like to richen up the color a bit, but that doesn't seem easily done.

    How do you play USB music from the USB-C jacks in center console?

    Technically, one only needs a stick with a USB-C (male) connector. But they are "new* and scarce, so are more expensive. An adapter and a stick with the common USB-A is more cost effective.

    How do you play USB music from the USB-C jacks in center console?

    Purchased a right angle USB-C to USB-A female for music memory stick in center console.

    USB music - folder structure? "Embedded" cover art?

    @sduck, I ordered several 16GB drives and will try some different schemes, and report back. Allegro "movements" ... :eek:

    USB music - folder structure? "Embedded" cover art?

    Am I correct in thinking that the folders are for the user's organization scheme and the song's meta tags are for the media player's use in organizing?
  21. Pepar

    USB music - folder structure? "Embedded" cover art?

    @sduck, thanks! I think Genre - Artist - ArtistAlbum makes sense. What about the songs? Should each be tagged with Artist, Album, SongNumber and SongName, with the file name be the song title? I can easily boot into Linux (or better yet PartEd) to format, but the rest of my workflow is Win10 so...

    USB music - folder structure? "Embedded" cover art?

    New (eleven days) owner here ... looking for some technical details on playing music from a USB stick. Can I assume that album songs are to be stored in folders? Can I store those album folders by Artist in Artist folders? Can those folders be stored in Genre folders? I am unclear on...

    MASTER THREAD: Floor Mats

    After knowing what I know now, if I were beginning to search for mats I would be just as happy that I found them amongst all of the vendors as I was when I ordered 6/15. That said, I must admit that my anxiety level has been elevated a bit by the fuss. Human nature I guess.

    Sunshades as acoustical treatment?

    I have been focusing on sunshades as the next checklist item .. @Tsportline wheels are now on and mats have been ordered. My only motivation was to use them when parked in the sun. However driving around yesterday and playing with the streaming music, something else entirely has moved onto the...

    MASTER THREAD: Floor Mats

    While I am a purchaser of their mats, I am not an *owner* .. yet. ;) As I have followed the saga and interacted with them, both directly as a customer and here as a member, I would characterize it as they have had a minor freakout with what had had the rumblings of bad social media. In trying...

    There is a dead bug inside the driving light enclosure; How do I remove?

    So, if it were a bat, that’d be a downgrade?

    There is a dead bug inside the driving light enclosure; How do I remove?

    The bug is so tantalizingly close, and I was hoping to fricassee it. ;) @Perscitus, I am only beginning to look at the plethora of aftermarket parts for this car. Next in that category are sunshades. It seems strange that the bug was blown in there and can't be removed easily.

    MASTER THREAD: Floor Mats

    My inquiry about my recently ordered (2-3 days ago) mats was that the ship arrived two Saturdays ago and was being off-loaded with all goods needing to clear customs and then be moved to the various consignees. In the case of the T-Shields mats, they needed to arrive at their facility, be...

    2021 wood trim: We don't like it? Why?

    There's the rub. :) If it is urethaned, it won't accept an oil. Only more urethane could be applied unless I want to sand. Ummm, no.

    There is a dead bug inside the driving light enclosure; How do I remove?

    After a day of driving I noticed that there is a dead insect inside the "enclosure" holding the driving/turn signal lights. It got in so I'm sure I can get it out, BUT HOW?

    2021 wood trim: We don't like it? Why?

    I get that completely. It’s an aesthetic choice. Personally, I like wood and in this case it is an accent that I am ok with. Wood paneling would be over the top. :) I’m even thinking about oiling it to richen the color and protect it. The oil I would use is from Monocoat whose products are...

    2021 wood trim: We don't like it? Why?

    So I began searching for information on the wood grain trim. I like the wood and would like to protect it. To do that I was trying to determine what, if any, protection is on the wood now. My searching here has turned up ppl who want to cover it .. or replace it. That's a bit puzzling, but to...

    I finally found roof shades that for M3 2021!

    Thanks @sortaconfused. What you describe is the type I would prefer. But I'd like to find another member or three that have purchased from a particular company.

    I finally found roof shades that for M3 2021!

    I am still not clear on what these shades do. They look opaque but say they block (only?) 80% of the sun. From my initial research, it looks like the "dual" types have both opaque and screen shades. Can anyone comment on that observation?

    MASTER THREAD: Floor Mats

    I was mostly thinking about dragging water and mud into my car, and that all-weather mats offered more protection from that. Not that Persian rugs wouldn't be cool!

    Amazing Sun Shade

    Resurrecting this thread ... I visited the links above and the products are either no longer available or are for the 18-19-20 and not my 2021. So I searched for 2021 items. There are a lot of them and many seem to be using the same graphics. And none have more than a couple hundred feedback...

    If I hovered a few inches above the ground when I walked, if the weather was always 75 degrees and sunny, and if I never spilled anything in my car, I would consider NON-all weather mats.

    Will I "erase" my first set of tires quickly?

    I'm thinking my wear will be predominantly from lateral forces and not the 0-60 kind. The low center of gravity, nearly balanced front/rear weight distribution and grippy tires suggest that'll be where my fun will be. The last set of tires I put on my '69 Z28 were Michelin radials, so even back...
