    Why does my car hate NPR?

    It's not exactly a proper fix, but have you tried listening to your local NPR station via Tune-in? While the built in app is a bit feature light- it adds a pause button to NPR, which I often find useful.

    M3 Tint question - windows but not roof. Any regrets?

    Agreed. I've got a 2022 and the new roof glass is so dark. You are the first to acknowledge this- I was starting to think something is wrong with mine. It should have been left to the user to deal with- I really dislike how dark it is now.

    Tint level

    The only time I've heard this is from an installer nervous about the amount of slip solution used getting into electronics at the base of the windscreen. I'm not sure what's in there of concern, but I also know that decent shops have plenty of ways to keep liquids where they need to be and away...

    New Model 3 - Rattling / Noise Issues

    2022 RWD here with 10k miles. I've had a rattle in my driver seatbelt adjuster for a bit now, and one in the rear passenger door. SC sorted out the belt adjuster rattle, but I'm sad to report that the rear door is actually much worse than before after they spend 2-3 hours. I'm well glad that...

    Tint question

    Did you get your car yet? I'm curious how you feel about that roof? Again, the new ones are really dark- like 5% already.

    Tint level

    Can you please explain why my body is roasting when the sun is hitting me through the windscreen but not my ceramic tinted side windows? Same thing happens if I roll down the window and don't have the tint? Someone is missing something.

    Tint question

    Don't ever talk to the last two shops again. Plenty of owners have rear glass tinted. To say that it *will* crack the rear glass is incorrect at best. I've read reports of owners suspecting tint caused the rear glass to crack- unless I'm mistaken, this hasn't been verified at all. What is known...

    Window tinting

    Right, no visibility issues- with yours. What year is your 3? I wonder if you might be surprised to find that the new ones are quite dark in 2022. The guy that tinted mine suggested exactly what you say, I told him I had concerns with how dark the stock roof is. He kept assuring me that he's...

    Rear windshield - to tint or not to tint

    FYI- the roof glass is very dark out of the factory now, dark to the extent of being nearly pitch black at night. I have 35 all around except the front, the roof looks like 5%. There is a gradient from the roof to the rear glass. My shop applied 35 to the back just where is visible in the...

    Suntek front window tint

    I'm not certain about the quality of Suntek, though I know of a couple seemingly reputable shops using their product. Ceramic is the important part for heat rejections- which is what you should be after. I've have Xpel ceramic tint applied to all except the windscreen. I usually tint my vehicle...

    Window tinting

    I've heard that a lot of shops don't like to tint, and even quote the entire top glass being covered due to the cost, especially the back glass. A lot of people turned off by how much the price jumps to tint it all.

    Window tinting

    The tint on the roof in the new Model 3 is REALLY dark to start with. Like, darker than I would ever tint it. I definitely would not add more to it- apply 35 and I don't know if you. would see the sun. At stock tint, night is basically pitch black. I'm continually disappointed with this. I had...

    2022 Model 3 Adaptive Headlights?

    Indeed- Associated Press: US approves new headlights that won't blind oncoming drivers. https://apnews.com/article/coronavirus-pandemic-technology-business-health-congress-761cac7ae30a03ab6a399b9676ae44bb I would love to see this implemented soon in an update. I would have to imagine if they...

    Felony charges for autopilot crash

    Interesting and valid points, cheers. What strikes me is the propensity to regulate something because of the rare chance someone may use it in an unsafe manner, but allow another product and cry havoc if someone attempts to regulate it because of extreme rare cases- like where you might...

    Felony charges for autopilot crash

    I'd be tough to sell lacking unauthorized use protection on firearms as a defect, but the defect might be in a product that unreasonably allows shooters to use them how they want and thus endanger the public... as well. It's just so hard to hear these inane arguments about technologies that...

    Felony charges for autopilot crash

    For what reason should Tesla be held accountable? I'm going to assume that you are in the minority here with this opinion for the many reasons already given. I'd be curious to hear more behind your reasoning. As mentioned, the vehicle in question could not have been expected to stop at a red...

    Alcantara Upper Dashboard

    Appreciated- but it's unclear what that kit actually covers, it certainly covers the wood bits- which I want to keep. It looks like that large space between the vent and windscreen is kept stock in this kit- which is all I want covered. I may reach out to them to clarify, and if the upper dash...

    Alcantara Upper Dashboard

    Is there any update possible? I've been looking into this as well. I actually like the wood a good deal, especially as they've added those bits to the doors as well on the refresh. I'm thinking about adding the matching veneer from Hills Made to the center console- definitely if I can find a...

    HULU ERROR p-dev302

    I'm very hesitant to say that it is working for me now. It was still broken after the holiday update, but I'm able to stream Hulu in A Better Theater and Tesla's provided client as of Wednesday following the recent update.

    MASTER THREAD: Floor Mats

    I have Tuxmats on my 2022 LFP and they fit perfectly. I've gone through three different floor mat options, Tuxmat was by far the best in terms of coverage, material and design. I really like my mats.

    Poll on V11 interface

    Another quality of buttons existing on the top of the display- even though they were small it was very easy to accurately tap by placing your hand on the top of the screen to stabilize and using your thumb. No one needed that extra map space, it made perfect sense to have these buttons and...

    Poll on V11 interface

    They would like you to use the voice command 🤣 As it read, the implication was assuredly that people stop complaining and be patient for them to improve things on their own. Customer feedback would help facilitate this, do you disagree? Being patient and doing nothing is a poor way to instil...

    V11 questions

    You should find those tiles under Car, bottom right location for DashCam and Sentry functions. It will say recording if it is doing so, and a tap will say saving with the green saving icon. Sentry mode should be red if recording, greyed out if inactive.

    Poll on V11 interface

    Yes, and if we want it to improve, we have to be a bunch of folks that don't like the change and then provide loads of criticism that Tesla can use to thusly improve it. If we don't say how we want it improved and they don't hear it- how does it get improved? Now if only we had a place to voice...

    V11 questions

    Gah! FFS- no kidding, why not just blue for on like the other bits? Terribly good point that I've noticed when driving but never brought here- and I've not seen anyone else mention it. Good call- this was a silly decision and doesn't not make things clear, leading to possible confusion in the...

    Sorry, I actually like the new UI :)

    Two popular and regularly used by many were moved and there are either no voice commands associated or the expected voice command ("Show tire pressure" doen't work, but "show service" does- which is arguably non-intuitive, both should work). Also, many people drive in areas where there can be no...

    Holiday Update (2021.44.25.2)- A Big Disappointment

    What the...? They aren't trying to live in the past. It's hard to argue that anyone that owns a Tesla is, or want to, live in the past. You shouldn't take things personally like this. Why does everyone come up with this reaction to users being discontented with a software update? Why is there...

    You could do with some understanding that you are now being angry and a poor community member. You've been here a little longer than I have, but I've already learned that this type of behavior isn't necessary or appreciated here. You are very stubborn with your point of view, that's...

    Sorry, I actually like the new UI :)

    Auto high beams are trash on my M3. Whenever I enable autopilot, I have to be ready with the other hand to turn off the brights 90% of the time, even if there is oncoming traffic 10 meters from me and a car directly in front of me. Almost all the time. I really dislike it and I bet the community...

    Holiday Update (2021.44.25.2)- A Big Disappointment

    How? I was driving yesterday after pickup up a hot pizza and the cabin started steaming up QUICKLY. It became a dangerous situation and since I didn't train myself in where this button is, I couldn't find the thing for a couple very important seconds. Sure, it wasn't where I knew it to be- and...

    I pretty much echo all of the gripes users have here. I have been driving my M3 for only about a month, and I do NOT like the changes that have been implemented here. I like the blind side camera, but it was poorly done and looks like an afterthought. The presentation of this has no polish, it...

    Stuck on 2021.35.102

    Welcome to the mission. Patience is a virtue. We've all been explained how this works. I have waited 6 months to receive my M3 with "outdated" software. It's disappointing at first glance, but think about how fast those updates would be coming and what they would include on any other brand. It's...

    SR/SR+ (Model 3 RWD) Waiting Room

    Same here. Tons of updates to my EDD since ordering in mid July. I'm heading out for delivery in about 10 minutes. Raining like hell out there- good thing the floor mats came yesterday! Screen protector is out for delivery. 🤘

    SR/SR+ (Model 3 RWD) Waiting Room

    That's how it happened for me. Lots of jumps to windows that span 1 - 2 months. Got the first estimate for a week recently, and I pick up on Friday- at the latest. Literally about to go stalk GR Tesla to see if an MSM in the parking lot matches my VIN.

    SR/SR+ (Model 3 RWD) Waiting Room

    Yes, 8 speakers in the partial premium interior. It is missing 6 drivers and a subwoofer. The premium interior system has 14 speakers and 1 subwoofer as well as two additional amplifiers, and reportedly a DAC. Not sure where anyone is reporting 16 speakers in any M3. At any rate, there at least...

    Cant stand the driving visualizations on the screen

    Agreed! I get people have their own opinions- but this reminds me of the people who say they don't use seatbelts because they can trap you in a sinking car if you drive off a bridge or if there is a car fire. In the event of a head on crash- the plan is to hop in the backseat. These imagined...

    SR/SR+ (Model 3 RWD) Waiting Room

    That's good news. This is what I was reading- Digit 7: Type of drive train E = Lithium Ion Battery – Electric (NMC) F = Lithium Iron Phosphate Battery (LFP) H = Lithium Ion Battery- High Capacity (NMC) S = Lithium Ion Battery – Standard (NMC) V = Lithium Ion Battery – Ultra High Capacity (NMC)...

    SR/SR+ (Model 3 RWD) Waiting Room

    Some of you know this, but a lot of people asking about 2021 vs 2022, LFP or NMC for a vehicle on the way; these are both indicated in your VIN. There are several VIN decoders available. FYI- There seems to be a possibility of fragmentation with these early 2022 units. I can confirm from my VIN...

    SR/SR+ (Model 3 RWD) Waiting Room

    Just got the same "accept and continue with delivery" stuff as a lot of others here. Ordered mid July, MSM and 18s. Not thrilled with the slower acceleration, but very happy (so long as the information is accurate) about the heated steering wheel. My new date is 16 - 22 of this month, and I'm...

    SR/SR+ (Model 3 RWD) Waiting Room

    Congratulations- and I'm pleased to hear people are still receiving VINs and delivery dates as I'm concerned about being sidelined as an SR+ reservation holder (since mid July) due to price increase, subtraction of the SR+ model, Hertz order, profit margin on dual motor models... As far as...

    SR/SR+ (Model 3 RWD) Waiting Room

    I've also noticed that in addition to the stated range change and rename to Model 3 without the SR+ branding, the order page no longer states *partial* premium...? Are they taking the opportunity to streamline the build and include the premium stereo and fog lights after the price increase? That...
