    Model X driver seat issue

    Reviving a very old thread here. What did you end up doing?

    bought used 2017 tmx, excruciating back pain

    Hi! I bought a used 2017 TMX with partly leather seats. After taking it on a 90 minute drive home my back started to hurt a lot. Over the last 5 weeks I've tried modifying the seat position in all kind of ways, always saving and driving for a prolonged period before testing a new setting. The...

    Used car recommendations

    I'm considering a used TMX, and I'm looking at a range of different options in my price segment. Preferred seat config: 7s foldable middle => 5s => 7s static middle => 6 seater with armrest. I don't care about EAP/FSD, I don't need Netflix and CCS charging is a cheap upgrade. I would prefer...

    How much regen braking with regen set to 0

    I have a theory which I realize I don't have any basis for, so therefore I ask you this: For identical scenarios, will track mode with 0 regen affect how much regenerative braking is used when applying the brakes, or will it be the same as if you didn't have track mode on? I thought the regen...

    Ah,no. Didn't realise there was a video, just read the article. My bad

    2021 Model 3 and differences from 2020

    Fake news I'm afraid. It's a German who tried to turn on heater by voice command, getting a message that turning it on failed. Same thing happens on 2019 SR, it's just software

    Very Shaky/ Bumpy Ride

    From what I've read on this forum the rebound dampers on the TM3 are the biggest issue here. There's too little rebound dampening so it's forced back sharply, which causes a lot of very small shocks when the road surface isn't perfectly even. I think @MasterC17 can elaborate more, unlike me he...

    Back Seat Cover

    Ah, my bad. I got hung up on the "nice backseat cover" and mentally translated to "good looking".

    Aftermarket Wheels on Model 3

    I think the DWS06 come with a 50k tread wearout warranty IIRC. Wearout warranty isn't amazing, but this is a UHP A/S tire so if you get a 20% discount on new tires because they wore out at 40k then I'd count that as a plus. Conti had a better MPG rating in the tests I read, so that's a factor as...

    Back Seat Cover

    I have the taptes seat covers. They match the original colors really well, and they stretch all the way to the doors. Custom Leather Seat Covers for Tesla Model 3 Rear Seats 2017 2018 2019 2020 2021 I made a quick video on the fit in my 2021 (I'm not a YouTuber, not looking for followers/likes)

    2021 TPMS display & reset

    Nevermind, just noticed they changed the naming from "tpms reset" to "change wheel configuration". I bought new TPMS from Tesla and went to a regular tire dealer, they put them in and voila! Worked straight away. Guess they are reset when new.

    2021 Model 3 Heater blowing cold air

    You should check out Bjørn Nyland's video where he does a lot of range testing in -16C Gives you a lot of good info on energy use for heating, also using seat heater

    Adjustable vs Non-adjustable MPP Comfort Coilovers

    For practical purposes, yes. Technically you adjust compression and rebound.

    Heated Steering Wheel confirmed in new China Model 3

    19" Gemini was he previous performance tire in China IIRC?

    Heated Steering Wheel confirmed in new China Model 3

    That door trim, fugly AF. Glad I bought one already. Heated steering wheel would be nice, but I'd rather freeze than have my car look like a National Lampoon reference.

    So you don't have a 2021 "refresh"...who cares, really?

    Because real leather, while better than most faux products, does not have magic properties for temperatures between 5 and -30C

    2021 Model 3 Heater blowing cold air

    This is not uncommon in any business. Some parts provider delivers a component which cannot live up to it's requirement, and the product suffers for it. HP had a whole line of laptops with bezels that couldn't live up to the specifications. They had to provide a 3 year extended warranty for all...

    2021 Model 3 Heater blowing cold air

    There are 2 issues with the heat pump right now. 1) it draws too much heat from the battery and motor in cold climates 2) the high pressure sensors fail frequently. Tesla SC in Norway expect new types/brands of sensors the next few months, meanwhile they're replacing with similar ones. Meaning...

    Using the 2021 USB-C ports in center console for purposes other than charging?

    Yeah, happened with the memory stick that was included with my 2021 as well. Memory sticks aren't made for continuous operation. They generally support something like 10-100k write cycles, while max durability SD cards can support up to 14 years (and maybe more) of continuous operation.

    MASTER THREAD: 2021 Model 3 - Charge data, battery discussion etc

    The displayed range is based on EPA, not WLTP, so you won't get the advertised range displayed. Warmer matters, so that easily affects range. Also, not sure how much you've driven it yet, but the first few thousand km has the most battery degradation, so you'll see a bigger range loss the first...

    Bass off on new M3P

    Set up an SC appointment asap, then try to figure out what it is. Might just be a loose clip or something like that. Reason for SC appointment is just so they can see that you reported it while the car was brand new.

    Stock Tires and Aero Wheels

    It depends. Tesla just had the big end-of-the-year push so there's probably more of these for sale right now than usually. Also, remember that the 2021 model 3 has bluetooth TPMS, so you should cross-switch before selling them (both because they only work on cars with BT tpms and because they...

    Using the 2021 USB-C ports in center console for purposes other than charging?

    First of all, memory sticks are notoriously bad for continuous write, like dashcam and sentry, and based on feedback on the USB stick it's not reliable (I've also experienced it, switched with a portable SSD). As for sentry. Turning it ON in the menu means sentry will be on by default every time...

    Tire sizes for 18 inch M3P

    @jjrandorin is it possible to make a master thread with an editable OP, so it could be kept up to date? Or is it reasonable to create a wikipost about it?

    Tire sizes for 18 inch M3P

    They are thin but perform very well. I wanted lower unsprung weight, so I did 18 winter (19lbs rims vs 28lbs on the tm3 20" sport wheels) I'm gonna go 245/40/19 for summer. PS4S

    Tire sizes for 18 inch M3P

    You need to clear the performance brakes, and to do that with 18" you need the thinness of a forged/semi-forged rim. 235/50R18 is 3.8% bigger, which is quite a lot. I don't know if they will actually fit, so I'm not going to weigh in on that. I wouldn't really recommend such a tall profile and...

    So around 159Wh/km. Is that a particularly low number for the Performance?

    Fingers crossed for possible retrofit now that China is pushing Performance cars with heated steering wheel.

    How do we “tinker” with our Teslas?

    The MPP comfort coilovers have better, stiffer handling but ride much smoother than stock. "highest" setting is just 5mm lower than stock. Also, going lower increases range, so maybe room for discussion with her? ;)

    MASTER THREAD: 2021 Model 3 - Charge data, battery discussion etc

    On 100% charge or 100% and new? I assume it's the first, I'll see if I get the chance to charge to completely full next week after I get my logger.

    So you don't have a 2021 "refresh"...who cares, really?

    If you had an early 2019 then the steering wheel was made out of real leather, they transitioned to faux leather for the steering wheel ~mid 2019. The real leather was softer, stitching was better (on mine) and I never noticed it was cold. The new one is colder, but I'm not particularly...

    So you don't have a 2021 "refresh"...who cares, really?

    So far it's a mess. SW for he heat pump is unreliable in colder temperatures, and there's a big number of cars where it outright stops working. For now there's not much reliable info

    So you don't have a 2021 "refresh"...who cares, really?

    We don't know if he heat pump makes a big difference in winter yet. So far we know that it takes too much heat from the battery/motor so you end up with a slow TM3 with poor charging speed.

    How to tell battery size [79 vs 82?]

    Also, if you want to be happy, you should stop worrying about the kW rating. Tesla is selling you values/results, and using components that live up to those numbers. If they don't have 77kW batteries the day your car was built you might get a 82kW battery because there's no way they're gonna...

    MPP AWD/Performance Coilover Impression and Installation

    @Needsdecaf Based on all the feedback I've read and heard about the comfort coilovers are better than the stock in all ways (except warranty) You'll get a firmer ride, be able to drop it a bit, and if you get the adjustable ones you can adjust everything more to your liking. They are based on...

    Dash Cam issue on 2021 Model 3 LR

    It's USB-A Sentry mode is just on/off, you need to hit the dashcam icon to store clips. If you don't have the dashcam icon it means your car hasn't recognized the drive (for whatever reason), but you can still turn sentry on/off. Dashcam icons look like this: My 2021 memory stick also does the...

    Using the 2021 USB-C ports in center console for purposes other than charging?

    The 2 in the back is only for charging AFAIK. You can partition a storage device into 2 drives, or use separate folders. If you have a portable SSD drive, like the very popular Samsung T5, you can create 1 partition for recording (remember to create a TeslaCam folder on it) and one partition for...

    Model 3 slow charging

    Currently there's a shortcoming in the heat pump programming, so it will drain too much heat from the battery, making it almost impossible to precondition properly in the winter as long as the heater is on. That said, preconditioning for 250kW would probably take something like 40+ minutes, and...
