    When is 2022 Model 3 releasing?

    I thought thats when they planned on using "sharks with freaking laser beams on their head" to obliterate road obstacles to ensure no accidents

    When is 2022 Model 3 releasing?

    Real question is when are the 2023s coming out?

    Should I buy a Tesla as a first car?

    I think with the rate of inflation for any millenial this is near impossible to ever own a Tesla on a median salary unless you live like a hermit or are funded by mommy and daddy, or are financially savvy and made good moves.

    Roadster motor/inverter: which Tesla motor (post 2011) comes closest?

    For AWD/P front is permanent magnet and rear is induction I thought?

    Should I buy a Tesla as a first car?

    My $700/mo payment is more like $400/mo after fuel savings. Then again. I drive a lot. If you can get a level 2 charger or and drive enough to offset the extra cost I would say, "sure."

    Tesla Model 3 Saves Driver In Destructive 75-MPH Rear-End Crash - Dec 13, 2021

    Seeing that and having kids, drunk driver there should have been told he killed someone so he could live with that for the rest of their life.

    Aftermarket Wheels on Model 3

    Old picture, but another vote for Martian in anthracite. Front rims and tires are winter konig ampliforms.

    Friend on Limited Income wants to buy a roadster - give me the good, bad and ugly

    Reading number 7. Ironically, I have cared the least and did the minimum maintenance (but some mods) to the most expensive vehicles I have owned. 2020 ram limited 1500 and this tesla m3p. My cheap crappy cars (flat black 86 notch mustang) I babied like no other. Other than some burn outs lol...

    20% all around, i was told rear glass is not tinted but it looks like it is. They did a good job because i could not find a seem along the glass edge

    How long will a model 3 last and what tesla to replace it?

    60k mile 2019 M3P - I intend to own this until ~120k-160k miles. Current Battery available usage mid 270s. That will put it at 2024/2025 due for replacement. Perfect timing for when my cybertruck "should" be ready in my opinion...

    Tesla Model 3 Acceleration Software Limited? [model 3P]

    When I read brake hold i got excited hinking brake stand like brake "boost." I quickly realized I am dumb.

    KW V3 coilovers. I believe i am like .25" below their highest setting. So got another 2" lower I can go. Would have preferred MPP comfort coilovers but they had a month plus lead time and I would have ate through a $1600 set of tires if I did not get them asap.

    Did you just say more acceleration is no longer necesssary?!?! You will get it and you will like it.

    Tesla Model 3 Acceleration Software Limited? [model 3P]

    I think APR stage 1 is $700. And even if the RS3 0-60 is only 3.0 or 3.3 or 3.5, still is almost 1 whole second faster in quarter mile and traps like another 15mph. But then we argue warranty, i think APR sells a factory "plus" that keeps warranty. Once we get to this point it is all about...

    Tesla Model 3 Acceleration Software Limited? [model 3P]

    I always default to... stage 1 or better rs3 lol. Mainly because I was looking to buy a tte700 rs3 and said "i do not want to pay to fix this." So, that is how I bought a M3P. Always miss the sound of the I5, and the acceleration over 70+mph. The little extra room of the model 3 is nice though.

    Rally Armors Mud Flaps for Model 3

    Ironically I had rally armor on my mk7 Golf R! I wish the rokblokz came down slightly lower, came in a gloss black and were less rigid.. sounds like rally armor yes, but rally armor are a little too large out, and too long.

    MASTER THREAD: Floor Mats

    To each their own. I prefer clean continuous profile compared to textured. Rubber continuous profile is easier to clean. We understand hard plastics can be slippery, but tesmanian is softer/grippier than some of the old stiff weathertech style. Softer allowing for 'less' (I agree still some)...

    MASTER THREAD: Floor Mats

    Tesmanian mats do not say tesla on them like the ones imaged above. At least mine do not. That waviness must be freshly installed out of a pack too. I believe i commented before - do you have a side by side image of the drivers one? The dead pedal on tesmanian is covered almost entirely and well...

    Rear Quarter Panel Damage Assessment

    Playing devils advocate... Why would tesla want to change it though? If it made it cheaper to build/manufacture or improve the quality of the car and a by product was cheaper repair, I am assume they would. But, if it doesnt bring cost down of the initial product I cannot imagine them caring.

    Rally Armors Mud Flaps for Model 3

    So the performance is 0.4" lower than a LR, and with the drop i am another 1.25", So front I would have ~1.6" and the rear is a smidge higher so maybe ~1.85" before flap touches ground.... uh oh lol

    Rally Armors Mud Flaps for Model 3

    Can someone measure how much room is from the bottom of mud flap to ground? My model 3 is also like 1.25" lower than factory so want to have an idea how much clearance the flap would have to ground

    MASTER THREAD: Floor Mats

    Love the tesmanian mats. Plenty of coverage, relatively low pice and simple sleek look. Would order again, only bummer was that I was frustrated that the website did not remind me when they were in stock after waiting three months.

    Had the RA flaps on a Golf R and Legacy GT, i do like the material but think the price is steep. Ive seen people having good luck cutting them narrower, ironically my car is raised from where I want to be specifically due to speed bumps, another reason why I want the flexible RA ones so I do not...

    How much energy does a model 3 use on average every month?

    Working for a utility company my only opinion is, these systems were designed for one way flow. The burden we are putting on them is great for these companies as a capital investment but it will take time. Might as well buy batteries and live entirely off grid.

    Reservation number

    I put in my order maybe two weeks ago for cybertruck dual motor with FSD. I think we are maybe 4 years out from delivery for dual motors if ordered recently... that is assuming 2023 is 50k deliverys, 2024 is 150k-200k deliveries and 2025 is 200k-250k deliveries. Complete guess though.

    Safety Score

    Never had a collision warning until i opted in for safety score and a driver pulled out in front of me. Maybe I want to see if I can get a zero score and still be granted FSD lol...

    What do you do for a living?

    No race related comment at all. Every ethnicity has those who fall victim to wanting materials over security at some point.

    Model 3 - Makes more sense to Lease vs Finance...here's the numbers

    I drive 25k miles a year. No lease worth it at that miles over purchasing! Current used market not fair comparison but if you had low miles they are going for 80%+ original cost for 3 years old!

    MASTER THREAD: FSD Subscription Available 16 Jul 2021

    If you are ok with that statement let's try this.... Give me $10k and I will give you $3k. If it retained 70% of its MSRP (its continuously upgradeable) so in a sense it should, then I would not be bummed. But, it seems that it only adds $3k-$5k to a vehicles resale at most.

    MASTER THREAD: FSD Subscription Available 16 Jul 2021

    I tell myself every time, "I will keep this for 5-7 years." Longest I have ever owned a car was just over 2... i have attachment problems.

    MASTER THREAD: FSD Subscription Available 16 Jul 2021

    I will be happy if Tesla pays me back my 10k for FSD so I can pay a monthly subscription. Resale of an FSD car is not 10k or even 7k more so I think this really poo poos on anyone who bought FSD at 7-10k.

    Help with Model 3 Headlights Adjustment Settings

    Not to bring back the dead post, but my Model 3 does not have any horizontal adjustment, solely vertical.
