    First Raven Refresh Model S P100D 1/4 time

    You'll find that these Michelin tires, like most all high-performance BEV tires, come from the manufacturer lined with sound-dampening foam permanently attached to the interior of the tire tread section to significantly reduce tire cavity and road noise that's more noticeable in quiet BEVs. Some...

    No more orange reflective glass on 3?

    The ultra low-E glass should at least be an option. It's uncharacteristic for Tesla to downgrade across the board like this, most of their changes have been improvements/upgrades. This is a change that will have long-term consequences on the longevity of the upholstery and interior trim, a...

    Largest concern about buying a model 3

    Not everyone is cut out to be an early adopter, and this poster seems to be solidly in that camp (risk-averse). The scouts ride out ahead of the wagons, and risk taking an arrow or two in the back. It's no accident that most of the pioneers stick with the wagons, there's no shame in that...

    Why Tesla's fleet learning is a big deal

    The unpredictable humans in the other vehicles, perhaps. Not driving the Teslas. In fact, the FSD system is "reprogrammed" by studying cases where human drivers took control from AutoPilot (dropouts are automatically recorded and reported) and the underlying cause identified, then the dNN is...

    Why Tesla's fleet learning is a big deal

    Exactly. Where are the goalposts? Taking a nap in the car's back seat may be a perfectly fine criteria for Elon Musk, self-proclaimed Engineer Extraordinaire, but regulators, legislators and technical professionals need to hammer out specifics. I get that Tesla's accomplishment will be nothing...

    Frustrating experience at Discount Tire - HELP!

    The Costco anecdote is the first I've heard of Tesla battery packs being damaged by improper jackiing, is that really a thing? After learning about the Tesla undercarriage lift points, I expected to see red and white "NO LIFT" warning stickers on the bottom of the Model 3 battery pack area...

    model 3 rear light

    Same thing happened to me - the plug had popped out of the back of the light fixture. Did you replace the trunk lights? If you did and you had to pull on the wiring harness, you might have loosened the taillight connection yourself, it isn't hard to do, sometimes I think cold weather can also...

    Interesting: Model 3 Maintenance interval is double that of S & X.

    I wouldn't recommend it, but you could drive a Tesla Model 3 for four years / 50K miles doing no servicing maintenance other than taking care of tires and windshield wipers and any other minor issues and be safe and confident. Four years. That's truly amazing when you think about it. No surprise...

    Interesting: Model 3 Maintenance interval is double that of S & X.

    The Tesla Model 3 was specifically designed for longer intervals between servicing (24 months/25K miles) and servicing requirements are minimal compared to ICE vehicles: - Tires require proper inflation and rotation every 6250 miles, and they wear out depending on driving conditions*, windshield...

    Colour match for Sport Wheels

    For those of us Model 3 owners with scuffed 19"/20" sport wheels, this is frustrating, no thanks to Felvy and Uncle Paul ...there's lots and lots of posts about the 18" Aero wheels, but nothing but torment regarding the Tesla Model 3 silver 'Stiletto' sport wheels ... After HOURS of dredging...

    Daily charging/topping up the battery (even only to 80%) could be very bad

    Thanks, I'd forgotten about the April 2018 article in electrek and its mention of charging methods. The data confirms how consistently well Tesla battery packs maintain their capacity as they age, and how superior Tesla+Panasonic battery technology and expertise is. I wish I could buy a Tesla...

    Daily charging/topping up the battery (even only to 80%) could be very bad

    On the topic of getting the most life out of our Tesla battery packs ... I'm fairly new to the site and this discussion, but as an experienced EE. I would expect the RATE of recharging to be a major - possibly the dominant - factor in battery pack life expectancy. Has this recently been...

    Is there an "Extra" Parking Brake Step or Not? Weird.....

    So ... I experimented a little with my new Model 3 (v2018.42.4) and it's very clear that the first push of the button on the end of the gear selector/shifter stalk selects Park gear ("P"), engaging the rear brake caliper pads as a parking brake. A second "long push" of the stalk button causes a...

    Obvious features/functions that weren't obvious to you

    I believe that the "long-press Park" state is actually unlocking all the doors for convenience. Anything else makes no sense. Admittedly the redundant display indications are confusing ... I'm guessing it involves regulatory directives (the second, red Park indication is a standardized symbol)...
