    Trunk button on touchscreen no longer works after v11 install

    No problem, happens in my M3 and frustrated me until I figured it out. I think it has to do with the setting that only unlocks the driver door. That setting is kind of unrefined.

    Try locking then unlocking the doors on the touchscreen before hitting the trunk button.

    Trade my 2021 M3SR+ for 2019 Stealth M3P?

    I've asked in the past, but Tesla won't remove FSD from their used vehicles. If you can swing it, go new LR with acceleration boost unless you want the FSD, then the 2019 will be fantastic! I love my 2018 stealth M3P.

    (CT) 2018 Model 3 Long Range Silver with EAP

    Looks nice. RWD or AWD? Good luck with your sale.

    Rumor: HW4 will have 13 cameras

    What would this mean for cars with 3.0 and FSD? Would they require a 4.0 update to function correctly, or would they have some sort of "reduced functionality" FSD?

    Auto frunk

    I actually had the clip holder break on the cowl portion (not the frunk liner). Super glue didn't fix it so now I'm giving JB Weld a try. My battery is the original (2018), so I'm not worried about the warranty being voided on it. It's pretty much EoL at this point. Side track, anybody here...

    Auto frunk

    They might be worried about drain on the battery. I'm not aware of any 12v setup like that. I believe the main ECM goes to sleep after a short while and before the main battery disconnects.

    Auto frunk

    I installed this on my M3. Not too hard. Worst part was finding a good stable place for the motor on a 2018. Second hardest thing was figuring out where the landing check goes (I got version 4.0). The videos I watched weren't clear about that. Final problem is that I might have bent a pin...

    Is LR worth an extra 6k?

    Yes,it's worth it. Add on the 2k acceleration boost and you have one of the fastest 0-60 cars on the street. 0-60 is all that matters, right?!

    Is there some "Caravana-sniping" function I am unaware of??

    I have had purchase pending Carvana cars become available before, but it's very rare. I'm fact, it's happened once. Best bet is to just keep checking then site to see if something new comes up.

    Congratulations on your purchase! I bought my 2018 M3P- from CarMax a few weeks ago. I'm loving it so far!

    What did you name your Tesla?

    The silver stealth performance I picked up is named Elster.

    General chit-chat in "For Sale" threads

    I'm very interested were this price is coming from. Tesla themselves are selling similar used cars for 65k. I'd expect at least mid 50s for a Performance like this.

    Air cabin filter replacement 2019 model 3 Vancouver - do yourself or use Tesla mobile service?

    I've done it twice. It's not difficult, just inconvenient. If you're a smaller person it helps.

    Mine isn't peeling off, but they are damaged. Any ideas on what it costs to replace them?

    General chit-chat in "For Sale" threads

    An equivalent new performance is about 70,000, including FSD. FSD is more than just a "couple grand" more. To the original poster, good looking car, good luck with the sale!

    Purchasing a Model S Performance from CarMax

    With the one from Tesla there's no doubt you get what's listed. Downside is your can't test drive it and might not even be able to see it before putting down your deposit.

    Purchasing a Model S Performance from CarMax

    I just bought a Tesla from CarMax. The transfer was done by the home office and took a few days. As far as FSD goes, I bought another Tesla from a dealer and it maintained the FSD, so I doubt you have to worry about that. Just check with CarMax to verify it was a trade in.

    Model 3 AC Smell Update...

    So I changed the filters today and dropped one of the push clips that's under the dash. It seemed to go under the passenger seat, but when I reached under to grab it, it disappeared. So far I haven't been able to see where it ended up. Any ideas? I'm pretty sure it was under the passenger...

    Vendor We're the makers of 3D MAXpider KAGU Floor Mats.

    These look great, but I can't find them for my 2018 Model 3. Will you be producing them for that year? It would be nice to grab a set before the Chicago winter.

    So I'm looking to upgrade my Sliver 2018 Model 3 RWD to a 2018 Performance Model 3. The trade in value isn't horrible, but I think I'd like to try and sell it myself first. I've got the summary below. Year: 2018 Model: RWD Model 3 Location: South West Suburbs of Chicago, think Naperville...

    2019 red stealth M3P 21k miles FSD Carvana

    Carvana has a red stealth M3P about to come off hold in about 25 minutes. It has some scratches and FSD. https://www.carvana.com/vehicle/1949768 Cars.com has more photos. https://www.cars.com/vehicledetail/9b47e696-c962-47f5-930c-7d08958de71c/ Price is 48990.

    Question about if a car is M3P or not

    Yeah, I was disappointed that the silver only had autopilot, but that's better than having to upgrade from autopilot with safety features to regular autopilot to fsd. The current car has FSD and even though it doesn't add all that much, I think I would miss it.

    Question about if a car is M3P or not

    I've narrowed it down to either this M3P without FSD or a 2019 blue AWD with EAP. Surprisingly the 2019 is about 4 grand cheaper. I'm leaning towards the silver though because it seems like it's a rarer configuration and something I might enjoy more. On the other hand the AWD can be upgraded...

    Question about if a car is M3P or not

    Sweet, thanks for all the info! I suspected it was a stealth M3P but was worried about some other option possibly adding the underline. I plan on taking a look at it today so I'll look at the additional info and look for track mode.

    Question about if a car is M3P or not

    I'm looking at upgrading my silver M3 RWD and I think I've found a silver M3 performance. It doesn't have a badge, but I've attached a picture of the software screen. Does the red underline indicate it's a performance model? Is there anything else I can check? Seller is a dealership that has...

    MASTER THREAD: FSD Subscription Available 16 Jul 2021

    If you pay to upgrade to HW 3.0 for the subscription, then decide to buy FSD out right, is it still 10k?
  32. T

    Does anyone recall M3P vs LR AWD used car prices before the shortage? Trying to decide between the two for a new order.

    Is it difficult to find buyers for new Performance wheels/tires? One of the first things I'd do is swap them for 19s with all weather tires.

    Dialing up to 50 PSI for improved efficiency

    If you do use a plug kit, do you still need to bring it to a tire shop for a proper repair? Also, do they void the road hazard warranty some shops give you?

    MASTER THREAD: FSD Subscription Available 16 Jul 2021

    I was thinking of a subscription going forward, say in 2022 you could no longer buy FSD for 10k, but could only sign up for the current subscription service. All new cars could come with a short trial so people would get "hooked", but if it were sold before the trial ended it wouldn't transfer...

    MASTER THREAD: FSD Subscription Available 16 Jul 2021

    So, this is a long thread. Apologies if this has been asked before, but could Tesla switch to a subscription only model for FSD? Buying a new car might include 6 months to a year (non transferable, of course).

    Why is FSD not transferable to your next Tesla?

    Does transfer in the Tesla app/system even count as legal ownership transfer? I doubt the DMV cares one bit about what happens in Tesla's systems. As far as I've learned, it is not. This is probably because it can be purchased after sale.
  37. T

    Why is FSD not transferable to your next Tesla?

    I did not, but I believe the dealership did because when I took possession the car was already named "Steve's M3" or something along those lines. I'm a little embarrassed to say that I don't recall exactly how it was added to my account.
  38. T

    Why is FSD not transferable to your next Tesla?

    I purchased my M3 from a dealer and the FSD was not removed. I took ownership over two months ago and have installed several updates and have even had it in for service.

    Sounds like you've found your new car. ;) I purchased my M3 from a dealer with FSD and had no issues. They also had obtained it from a trade in.

    FSD Transfer and Camax

    Interesting, how do you know it has FSD? As far as I know CarMax doesn't list that option on their website and calls I've made to them in the past have been less than informative... Would the Carfax or whatever show if it was owned by Tesla or auctioned?

    Speed Limit Error

    I had something similar happen, but in the opposite way! The speed limit was 55, but the road was highway 25. The cruise control immediately started to adjust down before I turned it off. Nobody else was around so it wasn't a big deal, but still kind of annoying. I've also noticed that it...

    Hello everyone! I used to be a Tesla 'doubter'. I thought they were overrated and poor quality, but I did believe in the EV movement. My wife and I started off with a Ford Fusion Energi as our first dip into EV ownership and decided if we bought another car it would be all electric. A little...
