    Coolers for long weekend/week in trunk

    @Watts_Up I removed the subfloor, was able to load cooler. Will be a bit cumbersome when cooler is loaded. Confirmed 17.5 inch cooler height. Picture with cooler "stuck" is when subfloor in-place, prior to removing. Picture of loaded cooler with rear seat in "passenger" mode. @Ther0ck yup I...

    Coolers for long weekend/week in trunk

    My 17.5 inch tall (specs say 18") RTIC 52 cooler is about 1/2 too tall to fit in the Model 3 trunk opening. Based on printed specs, looks like the RTIC 45 would fit.

    Tires Designed for EVs

    You're in the higher mileage subset with >40k miles on the stock tires. I had 24,500 with minimal hard acceleration events; all four tires were down to 2 - 3/32. I had a $1,200 quote from Tesla service center 4/2022 for stock Michelin tire replacement. Kinda interesting the cost variance...

    Do you use a windshield sunshade?

    I have a Covercraft UVS100 custom-fit sunscreen. Cost was around $80. Folds up and fits between trunk and trunk liner (Tesla/ WeatherTech). I also found a all-glass cover on Amazon, which I use when sleeping in the car. Have not tested for heat reduction. This item is out of stock, but I bet...

    Tires Designed for EVs

    Yes....DIY tire rotation (easier than dumb oil change!) to balance out the torque wear on the rear tires. I rotate tires every 5k; takes 15 minutes at home with a decent floor jack and cordless impact wrench. Discount Tire = Tire Rack = Tires.com are the same company. If range (plus improving...

    Tires Designed for EVs

    Discount Tire had a $70 and $110 discount on Pirelli tires, including these, the week around Memorial holiday. Maybe again for July 4th...? But yeah, Michelin sale seems to be every month. I haven't seen any other discounts.

    Tires Designed for EVs

    100% agree. I only have one 150 mile mountain drive on the Pirelli A/S Elect, so watt/mile consumption is "too soon to tell." But initial data shows similar or less w/m compared to OEM Michelin. Road dynamics are significantly better with the Pirellis.

    I Ordered a Taycan

    I realize this thread is predominantly Taycan v Model S, but for USA drivers, I'd also consider Lucid Air. If "luxury performance" was my desired car, I would probably get a Lucid Air. Faster than Taycan (speed, charging, range), more 2nd row interior room than most cars. I was really looking...

    Autopilot Takes Curves Dangerously?

    Lane "centering" is an interesting problem to solve. I get a bit frustrated with FSD Beta driving either too close to parked cars on neighborhood/25 MPH streets, moving into the gutter for right turns (WTF!), and yes occasionally non-FSD Autopilot struggles with non-constant radius road curves...

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

    "2) People say M3P get worse range because it has a more aggressive rear motor..." Not the case. Early Model 3 LR AWD and Model 3P have the same exact rear motor-- 980 model. There are multiple threads on TMC talking about the various rear motors on the Model 3 variants. Hardware...

    Thoughts on adding additional support to a bike rack to overcome the 120 lbs weight limit?

    @akacaj Thanks for doing the calculations....very informative. If I were carrying 4 bikes, would use a vertical solution....doesn't extend back from the rear of the car as far. https://www.1up-usa.com/product/recon-rack/ https://yakima.com/products/hangover

    Thoughts on adding additional support to a bike rack to overcome the 120 lbs weight limit?

    Tongue weight = assumption of a trailer being used. Weight on tongue is supported by trailer wheels. Hitch rack = cantilevered load. Hence the note from 1UP: Note: For 2” Super Duty Double, with addition of two Add-Ons (sold separately), this rack can hold a maximum of four bikes when all...

    2021 Model S hit by bus

    Dang that sucks. Lots of threads here which discuss "diminished value" and how to add that to the insurance bill. I assume other driver is at fault and their insurance will cover the repair. Good to hear your car is already at Tesla approved body shop. And as others here will say, don't...

    Need advice on 2020 MSLR tire replacement

    I'm going to try the Pirelli P ZERO All Season Plus ELECT. Has noise-canceling foam, 50k treadwear, designed for EVs. Probably similar ride characteristics as the OEM Michelins. A more performance oriented tire: Michelin Pilot Sport All Season.

    Random Roadster Sightings

    I was at the Littleton CO service center 5/17, walk-in parts order for my Model 3, and saw a technician parking a silver colored Roadster (#800-ish). I casually asked him about white Roadster #1112. It was--and still is--in for service. Parts recently arrived, and it should be back on the road...

    @mr-dmitry "That's why I fully support those states that forbid Tesla to sell their cars directly to the customers." Thanks for letting us know what's really going on. For me, this explains your language of "...A severe accident leading to severe injuries or death may occur..."

    3 Unintended Acceleration events when parking my Tesla S P in my garage.

    @gajafl There are too-frequent incidents where driver hits spouse "assisting" with parking, as spouse/assistant "helps" with parking. Driving isn't a team sport. You don't need "ground control" like large airplanes do, when taxing to the gateway. Please-- parking is not a team sport...

    Tesla runs into a PLANE while summoned

    Hey, neighborhood kids left it up, what was I going to do? Summon-ahoy! And yeah, I wasn't going to risk denting my hood with that thing. Maybe TMC can go-fund me for 4 pool-noodles for additional "height" testing.

    Tesla runs into a PLANE while summoned

    Here’s a quick test I did. Neighborhood kids set up this limbo pole, so I couldn’t resist testing Summon. My Model 3 appropriately stopped. Once I removed the horizontal pole, car proceeded with appropriate caution. IMHO seem dumb to experiment with an expensive car if you can’t see it, as was...
