    Car turned off while supercharging

    Ok, I'm not seeing the issue then. Car was asleep and woke up. If it had a "heart attack" the electronic button to actuate the door wouldn't have worked and it wouldn't have immediately woken up.

    Car turned off while supercharging

    So, when you pressed the door handle button. It actuated the door and the screens came back on? Or did something weird happen?

    Car turned off while supercharging

    I'm with everyone else.... You say you "tried" to open the door with the button? But it seems like it immediately worked when you pushed it, the door opened and the car turned on...... Not seeing a problem.

    Tesla Model 3 crash | Oregon [is my car totaled / how can I get my car totaled]

    In April a guy changed lanes without looking right into me, his front right hit my front left. Of course he didn't have insurance and was driving his girl friends Mom's car so mine had to pay for it. This was about $23k in damages. It broke the control arm/knuckle and the axle for the front...

    If 24 kWh per 100 miles is EPA best/reported consumption, what is typical for great, average and poor driving?

    Driving back from Disney to Virginia. I have 255s front 295s rear 36 psi. Was pleasantly surprised.

    Brake failed and almost crashed

    So looks like that line was laying against the steering shaft with no chafing gear. You can see the polish on the shaft from it turning around. The line rubbed through and then burst. Seems clearly a manufacturer defect from Tesla if that's the case. We see this stuff a lot in the navy...

    Clunking noise in dashboard for a minute after getting in the car

    My car has done this since I've got it. I just chalked it up to Teslas making a lot of random noises at times.

    Cockamamie directions

    This crap bothers me a lot in the car. I've never had android auto tell me to make a u turn at every intersection for like 5 miles lol. Google immediately figures out I don't want to take that way and swaps.

    Prices are slowly going up?

    Count me in the minority. Active military so my taxable income is low, wife's retired military with combat related injuries from Iraq so her income is tax free. If the tax credit comes back it's worth $0 to me. If the prices were jacked up to compensate for it I would have been looking real...

    Finally got my M3P from Vroom - damaged undertray

    That's it? It's a 3 yr old car you bought used. Either cut that section off or toss a bolt in there.

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    So, everyone picking up now has the new doors right? If they keep this design for a while it seems us Q1 '21 with Black trim, matrix headlights, heated wheel, matte console but the old doors were a pretty small run.

    good weekend sport car that complement well with model 3 owners

    Wait, why aren't we doing bikes as well as project cars? I own 3 bikes too 😄

    good weekend sport car that complement well with model 3 owners

    Are you buying or building. Mine is an K20a swapped EK hatch. Plenty of awesome stuff as a compliment but I would lean towards something lighter and more handling oriented, you already have the strait line hit you like.

    Standard Range Plus Autopilot Removed Remotely [by Tesla]

    This kind of crap is just yet another reason that FSD and such should just follow your account and not the car. No wonder it's not worth @##% all in resale value if it can just disappear.

    Help Me Decide Between Long Range and Performance

    Most people who get the LR+boost because they feel it's close enough definitely made the right choice for themselves. If you think a 3.7 and a 3.1 to 60 car are the same, then you probably think a 12.3 and 11.3 car are about the same, and a 10.9 and 10.2 car are about the same. If thats you...

    Cracked the roof

    He was probably 4 car lengths from me since it was after a stop sign. Last one came off a dump truck and bounced off the road then hit

    Cracked the roof

    Yeah Allstate is pretty good about this stuff. I think I'm cursed. Every new vehicle I get, gets a crack in the windshield within 5k miles. I'll probably wait till after the disney trip to replace because if I do it now and it happens again on the road trip I'm gonna be pissed.

    Cracked the roof

    It was actually on base at 30mph. Jeep in front of me kicked up a rock. Funny thing is I was explaining the strength of the glass roof in a rollover to a buddy of mine riding shotgun at the time hah. Just hit at the wrong angle. Luckily the 3s roof is two panels so I'm assuming they can just...

    Cracked the roof

    Lol calm down. You guys notice the insurance part on the first post. I was just responding to his sarcastic post.

    Cracked the roof

    Don't worry, I've already filed with the BBB, tweeted @Elon that his special roof glass is bull#%@^ and put a lawyer on retainer. ;)

    Aftermarket Wheels on Model 3

    The TPMS is more of a pain in the 21s. You need special bluetooth ones from Tesla. I just live with the light cause I really don't want to pay them that much money and bother with it.

    Cracked the roof

    Took a nice rock to the center of the front part of the roof today. Solid, don't even have real license plates yet lol. Wonder if the insurance treats this like a windshield replacement.

    Weird sound (maybe scrapping?) made when driving the car

    That first pic is the plastic guard for your spring cradle, the other side will have the same thing if you look. It's one 10mm bolt on the inside and then just a plastic catch around the bolt on the outside. That tire definitely looks low though.

    Should PPF look OK from 5 feet away?

    Agreed, I would be calling 3m and giving them pictures to have them pulled as an installer for sure.

    Model 3 rear door no unpowered emergency release safety

    Did you peel the rubber out of the rear door pocket bottoms and open the little plastic flap? That's where the Ys emergency cable is. Probably the same for us Well, just checked and I don't have that flap for a pull cable. Guess we're SOL hah.

    @MODEL+ your ideal customer is here. Plenty of money and will let you set his car up 😉

    When is 2022 Model 3 releasing?

    I'm taking the M3P to Disney in July with the wife and kids and I'm not even going to switch my wheels out. Last year we took my F150 that had ~600 mile range on a full tank. This trip will take us probably the exact same amount of time because at no point was I able to drive more than 200...

    No, it worked for me. Haven't tried it since my car got the new software though.

    New Interior Trim

    It's probably cheaper to make one door for white/black interior and just change that part than it is to make a whole door with white leather inserts and one with alcantara.

    https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08GXXCM5N/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_glt_fabc_RRJT7GNAVPD7930CWJDS?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1 I put some thick clear tape I had down first when I installed them. If you don't put some barrier down, the plastic is definitely going to scratch your paint.

    Noise issues with Unplugged Performance Mild Springs.

    That's only true if you go MPP or UP. If you get Ohlins from redwood or BC, you do not have to do that. Just need to reuse the rear one on the BC but there's no spring on it so it's not an issue.

    Took a drive in the rain to test out the new mud flaps. Work good, no streaks of crap down the side from the wide wheels, only normal water spots.

    Help Me Decide Between Long Range and Performance

    Spoken like a true bench racer, I'll remember these excuses to look out for from my next kills. 😂 "Come on babe, we both know my car is way faster in -3k DA. The road had some dirt on it and I didn't shift fast enough. Now lets go to DQ and get that victory sundae."

    Help Me Decide Between Long Range and Performance

    LOL, I don't know where you're getting these sources for highway rolls. There are lots of cars that will walk the P from a 40 or 60 roll but it's going to take more than a 340i or a stock mustang. You're looking further into the hellcat territory.

    Dash wood trim replaced under warranty?

    I just put it in little tins but you can see it works nice for open pore woods. Used it on the right side again just now and it fills in small scratches and stuff.

    Dash wood trim replaced under warranty?

    Use or make some board butter for butchers blocks. Mines basically 50% beeswax and mineral oil. Works really well to keep wood nice.

    Help Me Decide Between Long Range and Performance

    On the plus side, if you live somewhere that doesn't always get nice mine shaft air we're still consistent. 6k DA? Don't care, sucks to suck if you're on pump gas in 80% humidity and 90 degrees.

    Help Me Decide Between Long Range and Performance

    Yeah that's easily doable with either car. Plus the major cities probably have supercharging nearby. I don't have to deal with the cold like that but I still feel you'll be fine either way. I have 255 and 295s x20 on my P and I'm averaging 301wh/mi over about 550 miles so far running 36 psi...
  41. J

    Anyone regret getting a P after you did mods?

    The motors aren't the same anymore. And like was mentioned, there's no adding a blower, building engine etc. You buy the best power train you want from the beginning because that's what you get. There might be a chance Tesla feels the 980s in the P aren't maxed out and offers a boost for us...
  42. J

    Help Me Decide Between Long Range and Performance

    You seem really concerned about range. Have you figured out charging at home yet. Is your commute 100 miles? If you had a stock camaro before this, you'll be fine and happy with the LR.

    Footwell dip and foot placement while in AP

    I end up basically pulling it back and bending it left and resting on the side of my foot. Almost if you were going to sit indian style on the floor. I'll switch between that and pulling it back and it's been pretty good. But yeah the uneven floor does bother me.

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

    I'll start this off with a current pic and my setup then for records. BC coilovers, Redwood F/R camber arms. 20x9 +15 255/35r20 and 20x10.5 +20 295/30r20 Ferrada.

    Stuck in deliberation, Offset for 255/35/20 tires for standard gray calipers?

    My fronts are 20x9 +15s with 255's. They are tucked in currently more than I want. It's all going to depend on how much camber you want. If you want 0 camber it might poke a bit. Even just lowering the car without adjustable control arms and my +15 wheels were tucked. We're not gonna talk...

    Video: Matt Farah drives a modified Unplugged Performance Ascension R

    When he said, "These EV's, the infrastructure's not there" I had to look at the date he published the video. Has he looked at a Tesla Supercharger map lol.
