    SoCal Spotted a model 3 with Honda badges

    LoL I wasn’t mocking just at awe. Had me double taking thinking…wow this Honda Si has some nice tail lights, this must be a concept car in the wild with no wraps! To each their own in the custom car mod world!

    SoCal Spotted a model 3 with Honda badges

    Driving around so cal today, Torrance area. Wish I coulda snapped a picture but saw an interesting Model 3 that replaced the Tesla badges with Honda. They even went as far as putting VTec on the side of the car. Kinda weird “sleeper” setup and at the same time, in my opinion. Reminds me of...

    Vendor Jowua: Center Console Hub for 2021 Model 3/Y

    Is there plans to have the hub have a Velcro backing? I have this partnered with your center console organizer and the unit comes off from time to time when I move the organizer out.

    MountainPass Performance Comfort Coilovers

    Is the MPP at stock ride height a noticeable difference in ride quality? I’m getting mixed reviews with some saying at lower speeds it’s not that different versus no difference at all unless it’s lowered.

    Wrapping a White Model Y

    Wrapped in deep midnight black. Side by side next to the stock black you’re able to tell the difference. On top off the wrap it’s actually a color PPF. Scratch, hydrophobic and gloss…this thing shines 24/7 and a quick wipe with detailed spray gets the grime away. Precision one Auto in...

    Washing -what do you use?

    Upvotes for the chemical guys. Mr pink or the snow foam both used with a foam cannon will get it right. At the end of the day any Ph neutral soap will be good.

    Cleaning Glass Roof Recommendations?

    Lol clay every time? Your forearms and hands must be bulked down. I live in so cal and I clay 3 or 4 times a year. Wash, clay, polish, sealant, wax. Literally those steps will just have you maintain your car to clay it again on the 3rd or 4th wash. Linky

    Vendor Jowua: Center Console Hub for 2021 Model 3/Y

    So having spent almost 24 hours with it, the hub adds some usb support on top of the USB-c. The light is helpful and charging my Apple Watch, hard beats fit pro, and a plugged in controller was super convenient. It goes well with the Jowua organizer. What I notice is that it’s sensitive to...

    Problems with Teslarati Marketplace??

    It seems they require a premium membership to get discounted items. The marketplace is so hard to navigate and customer service is null. I’m hoping they aren’t a vendor here, they’re a bait and switch kinda of company.

    Recommendation was to adjust their bracket slightly lower than the stock. Now it works and I’m 100% happy with the results.

    EV Offer Model Y Electric Frunk - not actuating

    Just finished my install. Looks like the same issue for me. Latch test alignment hood. Issue is I can’t seem to get the trunk to actuate on an “open”. I have ti manually lightly life it for it to automatically start lifting on its own.

    No Software Update

    Just an FYI, most cars produced on a certain period go out with some default stock software. U got my first update about 2 weeks after I took delivery. They roll out randomly and even though there shows updates doesn’t mean you’re getting it right there and then. Just like the delivery for...

    Seat plastic frame

    Anyone having an issue when going in and out of the front seats that the back of your thigh scrapes the plastic frame? I would think the cushioning to be a bit more firm that it supports a person sliding/getting out of the car. I didn’t see any postings about this but there was a post on...

    Does anyone else car leak water?

    anyone who garages the car, put anything under the car to soak up the water discharge?
  30. G

    My Tesla is leaking. How can I figure out the cause?

    did you ever get your answer? i believe this is because the interior is being cooled and the heat pump drain is draining the water / condensation into the floor. Those that garage their MY's, do you put anything under the car to soak up the fluids?

    Service center - Torrance

    REAR TAIL LIGHTS

    I've googled and searched these forums and can't seem to find a diagram of the rear tail lights and pieces that go into it. I've seen youtube videos and saw the most recent video where they've been able to remove the rear tail lights and put them back in. It seems that the passenger rear tail...

    PPF / Vinly wrap - care

    they've kept it overnight, technically the whole weekend. I'll be picking it up this morning. I guess my main concern is the soap being used - foam bath versus light foam. My other car i use a pressure washer and foam cannon. It's a black car and the foam cannon is a world of a difference...

    PPF / Vinly wrap - care

    Those that have gotten a full PPF or full wrap - how long did you wait till after to wash your car? I'm hearing anywhere from 24 to 72 hours to 2 weeks. Also, when washing the car, are you using a pressure washer or just a normal hose and 2 bucket system? What product do you recommend?

    Tesla hosed me.

    Order completed sometime mid July and you’ve been waiting 3 months. You need to break 100 days, there are some people that have gone 180 at the most.

    PPF

    I ordered the car back in March and delivered end of September. To change the color of my order I would have needed to pay $1000 + the 4 different prices changes which totals to about 3000 to change my order color AND put me back in the line waiting for the MY. MY price was 49,900 before taxes...

    Plasti-dip vintage gold on Geminis w/center caps

    nice touch! Is that more Satin versus Polish? How many coats did you put and the drying time you put into it? I think the Red and Gold look goes well together with the black trim. Good job

    it may be sooner than that, after the last all employee call he did state that the next quarters will be "easier". But everything taken with a grain of salt, I just know 3Q was a paid and even the 2Q orders. Just be prepared to wait, wait, wait and wait. Honestly, after going through it...

    depending on what brand, but the average is about $500. If you're interested and can come to Los Angeles, SmarTesla is offering a 10% discount on confirmed installs for 3 or more cars. I need one more to get that 10% and out the door with install is about 600 bucks.
