    14-50 on 100 amp breaker? Ok to use?

    I would add a smaller breaker, 60 amp. At 100 you have too much room to cook the wires in the event of a fault and potentially start a fire in your wall where the cable is running.

    I want to import a 2021 Tesla Model 3 purchased in France to the United States

    The best way to do this, sell it in France, but a new one in the US. Importing an EU car to the US is a fools errand, especially a Tesla where you will not be able to supercharge, and your navigation will not work. Tesla in NA will also not be able to properly service your vehicle, especially...

    I was thinking just have the 3 dots be a swipe up gesture from the middle of the screen.

    Another price increase tonight [04/06/2022]

    for 2K you can have a 0.5 sec quicker acceleration to 60. Perhaps that will bridge the gap for you?

    Matrix headlight

    Tesla has not done anything to take full advantage of the matrix lights yet.

    I'm also having this issue with 2022.8.2. It's been really frustrating. Never experienced this before.

    Car Colorizer Allows You to Customize The Looks of Your Tesla

    I'm still bitter my electric car makes it harder for me to only adjust the heated seats and or steering heater without turning on the HVAC. You know, the very thing the manufacturer says to do, for greater efficiency. But, I digress...

    MASTER THREAD: Range Loss Over Time, What Can Be Expected, Efficiency, How to Maintain Battery Health

    Use ABRP since there is a break even point where driving an EV faster will actually be slower because of the charge times.

    Not seeing Oncoming traffic visualizations

    Did something change on this front? My 2020 M3 with autopilot only used to visualize all cars, including oncoming. My 2022 M3 with autopilot has all the same visuals, except oncoming cars. I’m on 2022.8.2 (though it behaved this way with the previous software version too) Ps I have FSD...

    Is it okay to replace door puddle lights?

    No issues other than if you got some real cheap stuff from Amazon and the light module stops working, your window will freak out and not close fully until it’s replaced with a working module.

    PSA: Base M3LR price increases by $1K [03.10.2022]

    Its crazy, I got a 2020 LR in Aug of 2020 for $46,990, in January of 2022 sold it for $50,500 and upgraded to a 2022. Got in just before all these price hikes.

    110v Charging Max 5-15

    Do you have a SR M3? Otherwise you may have >120 volts. My unloaded power out of outlets are around 123v for example. If you charge in the cold the number will be lower. As low as 0-3mph.

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    Tesla does very few things the conventional way and considering their size they need to squeeze every penny to turn a profit. One thing people don’t realize is that teslas are not necessarily “luxury” cars. They are on the level of a standard car with a premium electric powertrain. And really on...

    Matrix headlights - when?

    It is not enabled yet, but I imagine it is in Tesla's software pipeline. They already showed their hardware capabilities by way of the light show mode when parked. Obviously no one here knows, but I imagine they could be in development of the software and then move that into testing/validation...

    This isn't exactly an issue, or missed paint. These cavities are typically not painted fully, but generally primed and clear coated. The same level of paint applies around the hood and trunk, they are just hidden under the plastic panels. We have a Ford Explorer with the tr-layer platinum...

    PSA: Base M3LR price increases by $1K [03.10.2022]

    And another increase on March 14th. The LR 3 is now 3500 more than it was about a week ago. Wow.

    I ordered Jan 3rd, received VIN Feb 17 in PA. Blue/black w18s. Picking up today! I have butterflies in my stomach!

    Illinois will have a $4,000 tax rebate starting July 1st for all electric cars? Should I cancel my order?

    4K is worth a delay to me, and I'm also not very patient. July 1st is also just several weeks past your end of delivery window. I imagine if you put your car on hold for 30 days you will take deliver following July 1st

    Why does the UI miss so many oncoming vehicles?

    Ive always wanted to ask the same but never got to it... I'm also curious if the UI is missing it, or the autopilot computer is missing it. The former is a non issue but the latter can have consequences.

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    All new Tesla's come with automatic trunk. This is just an OEM upgrade for those that don't have it, pre 2021 Model 3's and competes with the 3rd party vendors. Not something you would hold a new reservation for ;) And at this time, only available in China.

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    Yup. There is oil in electric cars. Though it is not considered a service item. Lubricates the reduction gear set. One per motor in the 3/Y. It also helps distribute heat evenly.

    If you have software 2022.4.5 or later it will be an option in the hvac controls next to the heated steering wheel. Otherwise pop the frunk and cover and…How to tell if you have heated wipers on your Tesla Model 3/Y (if you don't have 2022.4.5 yet)

    You will need to call your service center...however I have a feeling they may not be willing to hold the car for almost 2 weeks for you and you may have to forfeit this car and they will assign you the next available one...

    Yea I’ve felt the same about the devon service center. Have had good interactions with the staff though.

    Mine just updated to something very similar. I’m in PA. Blue/black color.

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    Very solid chance you have the new features. I read it on TMC that Tesla does not build VINS in sequential order. Supposedly one reason for this is so that the total cars built cannot be reliably counted by the last vin number delivered in a quarter.

    fellow blue here! OD Jan 3rd! I had no idea they took "longer" when ordering. Thought the blue looked nice and the last M3 I had was white and gray just wasn't doing it for me.

    Don’t be offended by teslas offer. They are stretched thin selling every car they make. it’s not worth their time to buy your car and resell it, and that is reflected in the offer you received. I got 10.5k USD selling locally over Tesla. Even with the tax savings it was a no brainer to sell...

    has the heater wiper been confirmed in the wild in North America?

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    the 6-50 is not talked about enough. It charges at the same rate as the 14-50 and does not require a neutral wire. That is what I went with. I do recognize however, it is the less common format.
  42. S

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    perhaps you already know this, but the aero covers are removable, revealing a rather nice looking wheel underneath. Add one of the many wheel hub cover kits, and it looks sharp. On my last M3, I removed them as soon as I got home, never put them back on.

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    The 14-50 adaptor is no longer included, that stopped in early 2020. It's the most commonly stocked part at the service center, so pick one up when picking up your car. Or order from the Tesla shop online.

    Bought a CF spoiler on Amazon. Sumk brand. Hazy and white spots 14 months later.

    that's a great rate, what institution quoted that?
  47. S

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    Agreed but what I found interesting is the number of vehicles affected. Any way to estimate how many total teslas may be on the road to determine % of cars sold with FSD. I’m guessing it is a low percentage.

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    I've read stories on TMC that some car wash stations have refused to have Tesla's come thru due to liability. Technically there is nothing of concern beyond a conventional ICE car. A car wash mode does exist, which also locks the charge port so it does not accidentally open. I used to take my...
