    Auto park

    Auto Park is part of the FSD or EAP package. If you just have basic autopilot, you can't do auto park.

    New USB hubs - Taptes USB Hub Pro/Basenor USB Hub

    So probably about 1 and a half years of using the hub, it's starting to die on me. It would sometimes not power up the wireless chargers, and my sentry mode USB without having to unplug and replug them often. Does this seem like an USB hub failure? Now that Taptes don't make the USB Hub Pro...

    2019 M3P totaled?

    $6k? That itself might not be even enough for replacing both doors. I would say about $15k for this one, possibly more depending on the damage behind the front wheel. It's looking unlikely the car would be totalled.

    New phone time; questions re: phone-as-key

    Over the past 3 phones I have that's paired with my car over 2 years(Galaxy S20FE/S21+/S22+ now), it has worked basically 99.9% of the time, the number of times where I have to manually open with the key is probably somewhere in the range of 3-6 times.

    Minor clear coat scratch from motorcyclist (not at fault), should I bother to report to insurance?

    Hey all, So I am on the freeway, a motorcyclist decided a skip through a really tight space between two cars (my car and a semi truck), and caused a clear coat scratch (I think mostly). Here's a picture link for the damage: I got their license plates fortunately with a secondary dashcam, not...

    Ingenext Boost Modules [aftermarket]

    I have a SR+, so I won't be getting neck breaking 0-60 speeds like the other trims, but hopefully going from 5.3 to mid-high 4s should be a big difference. I still have the MXM4 tires from OEM, just going to use it all before going to a better all season tire like PS All Season 4. Surely won't...

    Ingenext Boost Modules [aftermarket]

    To my surprise, it does have a 980 motor! Here's the picture of the plate below. I also have double checked the papers, and it did state the manufacture date of 01/2020.

    Ingenext Boost Modules [aftermarket]

    What's the cutoff for the 980 motors? I have a Jan of 2020 build, is this a 980 or 990 motor, or unsure?

    Full sized spare tire for Model 3?

    I personally carry a Hyundai Genesis 18" full size spare myself, and it fits in the truck fine. There's also the Modern Spare option that's also great. It does take quite a bit of trunk space however, if you are carry alot of cargo often, it may not be the best choice.

    Hit something on the road damaged wheel and tire.

    If the tire still holds air, maybe it might be okay to drive for a short distance. With the bent wheel, you might feel sore vibration while driving, and I definitely would not drive fast with it. As it has sidewall damage, the tire would have to be replaced. Replacing the entire wheel/tire...

    SR/SR+ (Model 3 RWD) Waiting Room

    https://teslamotorsclub.com/tmc/threads/sr-sr-model-3-rwd-waiting-room.144725/ Take a look for yourself. You and probably over thousands of future RWD Model 3 owners are having long waits for them.

    Carry an extra tire for roadtrip?

    I don't carry a full size tire, I carry a hyundai genesis 18" full size spare with a jack, torque wrench, and a breaker bar. The modern spare is also a good option as well as others have mentioned.

    My first accident

    I had almost the same exact damage (maybe a little less in severity) and I had to wait for a month for the next appointment... I wish it was only 11 days for me. The body shops are overloaded here in Southern California.

    Rear Ended After Installing Mods

    What Would You Do with Your Gas Debit Card?

    ******!!!!!, my last year's vehicle registration is about 8x that, I believe it was about ~$560. I do expect it to go lower to low $500s this year, but still a significant amount. Even something like 10 year old Honda civic still costs in the mid $200s...

    No 2022 Model 3 CVRP Rebate

    I do have to wonder if CVRP will be removing the Model 3 and Model Y entirely from the list during the next revision of this July, as the base MSRP limit for sedans is $45k, $60k for SUVs, which the recent price increase for the base Model of 3 and Y hit above the base MSRP limit ($47k and $63k...

    Best M3P Color That's Not MSM or White?

    My favorite is red, but blue is a rather underrated color, I don't see them many around my area, and I think it really looks nice in person. But, your best bet is to go a service center and see them in person, it may surprise you on how the colors in person.

    Really tight garage entrance

    I would not risk it. Even with mirrors folded, the width of the Model 3 is 76.1 inches (vs 82.2 unfolded), almost 6 1/2 feet wide. I would not be comfortable at all with only a 1/4 feet of space each side for summon.

    Anyone go P->LR?

    If anything, there's the $2000 acceleration boost option if you do want some extra performance on the LR. Granted it's not as fast as the performance and you still don't get track mode, but it's close.

    Hit and Run. Looking for community thoughts on repairs.

    From the damage that was done on the side fenders, it's not very certain if anything inside the wheels were damaged. It's alot of things and labor to be considered, like what Freedom says, and the side camera, and who knows what needs to be replaced. I had a rear quarter panel damage, they...

    NCA (li-ion) vs LFP SR+/RWD weight distribution, differences?

    Hey all, Just curious about the topic, I know it's nothing important. I believe from what I find online, the SR+ (with NCA battery) has a weight distribution of 47/53 front/back, with the LFP battery being heavier, is the LFP version for SR+/RWD about the same in terms of weight distribution?

    Estimated Repair Cost?

    Oh man, sorry to hear about your car. As simple as this might look, this could be a nearly $10k repair in my opinion, it would depend if the door need to be replaced entirely. They would probably have to repaint the entire passenger side to ensure the color is even, and that's probably one of...

    TeslaCam / LightShow/ USB Music on a single memory card?

    I have tried putting Boombox and LightShow in the same partition, and that makes Boombox unavailable. Your best bet is likely each partition for each purpose as you have stated.

I don't believe it's worth the time and hassle to pursue it as a criminal case, especially no one was hurt. I recently was involved...

    Someone keyed my car for no reason

    Sucks to say, but if it's lower than your deductible, I wouldn't bother with insurance at all. A cheaper solution would be just go with the Tesla touch up paint, but it won't look as good.

    SR+ owners [what is your daily commute]

    Welcome to owning an EV, where "refueling" daily is the norm. The SR+ is fine for your job commute, in fact, for most people as well. Unless your job primary involves with driving to clients/etc or occasional long distance driving to job sites, if your daily commute to work and back home is...

    SR+ owners [what is your daily commute]

    I used to have a 60 miles round trip, and that takes about 35% battery, but 10% of it is used for sentry mode/cabin heat protection for the 8-9 hours of parked outside. I would say around 40% battery usage is about what you would expect.
