    Tire Diameters and AWD System

    Single smaller tire … do not know, never had the opportunity to try (always made to destination for replacement tires). Two spares, definitely fine…but not what you likely want.

    Tire Diameters and AWD System

    No rubbing whatsoever…lowered to standard height for MPP sport coilovers (tire about ?? 2cm below lip) and camber about -1.5.

    7.2 kw system generates only 4 kw

    Likely normal - can try to use PV watts website Calc to assess day production for time of year, direction and amount of panels.

    Audio drops out and audible clicking sound

    Yes - had this problem and went away after taking it to get serviced for that specific issue under warranty after it was occurring consistently everyday. Anything to do with the steering wheel roller ball controls, or even front sensors would trigger sometimes. They ultimately said it was...

    Title change

    To the moderators….should just give up on declaring a year for the roadster on the title of this sub forum. Try instead: “Roadster - Next Gen” “Roadster - 2.0” “Roadster - the ghost cat” Up for other names??

    Faded Tiles on Front of Home

    Does not look right. Even sunlight hit on the tiles normally do not look like this. Almost looks like they were spot painted black and that is fading. Are these the newer metal versions of the tiles, or are they made of glass? I assume they are not active. I would make sure it is not something...

    Understanding PGE/SVCE electricity bills/TrueUP

    As stated above, to really answer there are individual based details needed on your solar production vs usage, time of your use of major electrical loads, and desire to have backup and to what extent. Self powered is going to be like being off-grid. This would be fine if you using less than...

    Solar Roof Showing 0kW Output on App

    Umm...do not rely on the app... Call, call, and call again to get a response from service request

    bollards on garage side wall in Riverside county, ca?

    If this was truly a concern, I assume they would require bollards in front of every ESS install, inside or outside. What is preventing someone from accidentally swerving and hitting the batteries on the outside wall??

    Solar developments in short & long term

    Well, I did not mean to focus on the buyer's remorse point or the change in public policy angle. But was getting at people's impressions as to what was going to change and by how much from a technology standpoint. How much more efficient panels and tiles were going to get...something on the...

    Solar developments in short & long term

    Posing a general question... Maybe asking for those in the industry or otherwise in the know (which I certainly am not).... What are going to be the most significant developments / changes in products available for home solar (panels / tiles / batteries / inverters) in the next 5 years...

    Anyone have a recent new home Solar Roof quote?

    Agree with above...to truly get a better idea for comparison with people here, the details that would matter would be: -city / town -square foot of roof being covered -amount of Pv tiles (kW) being proposed -powerwalls or not Unfortunately, yes mine was expensive (and that was before the rate...

    Anyone have a recent new home Solar Roof quote?

    Well, it's not inexpensive. With a large, complex roof...it's even less, not inexpensive

    Been having same issues with T7 on 2022.4.5.3, tried reformatting exFAT...no go. Using just for Teslacam. Anyone figure out a solution?

    Anyone know a company that clean Solar Roof panels?

    Mother Nature…inexpensive but not so reliable up here

    Tesla Solar Roof & Powerwall + 10 kW System Solar Generation is Lacking

    Here is similar but different problem ...Unfortunately, my tile orientation are more variable and off straight compass lines then yours. in winter to spring time, my production peak is bifid. However, this goes away to a single rounded peak by start of April and continues until Dec. Pitch all...

    Tesla Solar Roof & Powerwall + 10 kW System Solar Generation is Lacking

    Would venture that you are seeing the drop at that time as transitioning from E to W tiles and you are likely not capturing the N ones as much as you would in summer (July 15) as those N ones would get maximized at the peak of day during summer and you would see as a fuller peak production...

    Solar Roof - Texas - HOA declined

    Well...the Spanish clay look solar tile has been "in development" for years. I would say you are out of luck for any immediate and not so immediate future for that solar roof design. Nothing else even close out there from any other company. Panels or nothing.... Does your HOA even allow panels?

    Sorry ... my bad....should not even have taken the bait

    Tesla Solar Roof & Powerwall + 10 kW System Solar Generation is Lacking

    Sorry...do not follow you...need more info. You are mentioning about a drop by 1k at 11am but your graphs do not show that. Moreover, they are "reasonable" production curves and values that demonstrate things are working considering they were in Feb, and maybe I am presuming that you have a fair...

    PG&E EV2A rate went up by 20% March 1

    Were the Tesla's really in need of charging?? Probably not and just taking advantage of free or very low subsidized rate at hospital with typical short time limit (eg 4hr max). Too much hassle for what it is worth. Been driving Tesla EV for 8 years...straight away cost of charge vs gas has...

    Would Changing to EV Plan Help with Cost?

    In winter...your extra $10 fixed is made up by just the rate change if using more than 625kWh of non-peak per month In summer...the extra fixed is made up after 333kWh non peak....
  25. S

    Would Changing to EV Plan Help with Cost?

    To OP... Seems like a no-brainer...you're better off with the EV rate (making certain assumptions that you are effectively minimizing your on peak & part peak use with solar + PWs, and the extra $10 fixed monthly is a negligible difference) Ditto...wish I had your rates

    How much power does your home draw overnight? (Baseline energy use)

    Haha...well maybe to some degree...4 adults 3 teenagers all with their own computers, iPhones, iPads, and TVs, 4 refrig and electric stove for all the food, electric dryer (all those clothes), pool and EV to boot. But at least all LED lighting inside and out.

    How much power does your home draw overnight? (Baseline energy use)

    1.2-1.5 Kw per hr during late evening to early morning without charging the car....average 92kWh per day across the year

    Force Powerwalls to charge from grid

    Welcome to the world of solar... No you cannot - unless using StormWatch and it is activated thru a anticipated weather event. You have no control over how/when that activation occurs.

    SiriusXM radio on Model 3

    I give up…. You forget the other reason why all those other other cars with Sat radio option listed (btw- it was not an exhaustive or all inclusive list) are not comparable …none of them rhyme with “Mesla” and end in number or letter that is further in the alphabet after “X” You have several...

    SiriusXM radio on Model 3

    Really, seriously???....yes, I am personally very aware of the cost of the Tesla model S. I would agree with others, its probably all about licensing agreement by Tesla as opposed to design constraints, hardware compatibility or production costs Current cars including Sat radio standard or...

    SiriusXM radio on Model 3

    Sorry but the point about having sat radio available as an option being too cost prohibitive or challenging for Tesla ignores the fact that it has been available for model S for many years. Where I live …cellular internet based (tune in, etc) with Tesla just plain sucks with regard to drop...

    Tesla Powerwall with 2.45 kW

    Would agree with above...assume you know backup limits with solar only (cannot use solar power if grid out and sunny outside without Powerwalls). And then power use shift off of peak rates with use of Powerwalls. ROI is variable based on your value of a backup...hard to get ROI only with rate...

    Tesla Solar Roof Warranty Claim

    Tesla will not add more panels to my system [on carport roof]

    Anyone able to get Tesla solar to install on something other than a "normal house"?

    We had our solar roof installed covering our "portechocere" (covered open driveway) which was contiguous with roof covering the garage and house. That area is open only with columns (no walls). No issues / problems before or after install.

    No message prior to no loss of access to PWs. Have not had to log in and out before with my app...been very stable prior, but should have thought of it. Did the same just now and solar & PWs are back on app with logging back in. Thanks for coming up with the obvious .... fortunately did not...

    HRE FF01 wheels discontinued

    As I recall, three factors at play for FF01s on model 3- 1. HRE offsets were aggressively set for preferred lowered stance 2. But need to know that all FF01s are not the same for M3s. HRE created different wheels for the M3P hub lip vs non-perf flat hub, so no need for special spacer. They had...

    Model 3 Tires, Tire Sizes, Types, make / model recommendations, tire discussions, etc

    YES - lots of people on here have done staggered tire sizes...pros and cons. Wheel sizes and offsets that are staggered as well is what would be preferred. There are lots of other threads ... search "staggered" to find what you want

    Will a solar roof or panels glare on my neighbors?

    Similar situation here, different slope elevations around the neighborhood in the hills...there is some mild glare from Tesla solar roof at times, but really not that significant with the texturing of the tiles and less than would be for flat solar panels in the same location. Would not worry...

    NorCal Powerwall owners. What is your reserve percentage right now? (Late October 2021)

    PW2 x3, reserve 30%, TBC cost saving, on EV2A, currently make it thru to 12mn on solar being generated in mid 30s kWh per day even this past rainy week. If winds pickup, tend to increase reserve for more available backup. Fortunately do not have to worry about ice storms in this area

    MASTER THREAD: Comprehensive Road-Course Modification Guide — Optimizing the 3 for the track

    Yep, agree regarding pure track setup...was just giving some reference for OP idea of 275s up front with relation to M3P, wheel size/offset, tire size, camber etc. 275/30/20 vs 275/35/19 is 0.1" off in overall diameter, so fit essentially the same.

    Model 3 Audio Flat Sounding From Rear Speakers?

    This is getting annoying as 💩...this is obvious software update bug. Never had before most recent update...now daily loss of immersive audio and need for 2 wheel reset.

    MASTER THREAD: Comprehensive Road-Course Modification Guide — Optimizing the 3 for the track

    Assume you would not want spacer with M3P for size wheel, tire and offset. As suggested above, you will probably want align with neg camber. Here is 20x9.5 ET35 with 275/30 up front with PS4S, M3P rotors, no spacers but not stock suspension. Front camber little < -1. Rear with 295/30 on 10.5...
