    Wheels without TPMS warning?

    You need 2 brand new sets? Either way I don’t know why they were so much. I got them direct from Tesla for 75-80 each. (usd)

    Wheels without TPMS warning?

    They are about 75 a piece at the dealership. so 600us for 2 sets. Not sure what pricing ur getting, but by current conversion that’s only 760 CAD. And mine are dead are accurate…

    Wheels without TPMS warning?

    Have the place swapping your wheels pull them out of the stockers. the place I had do my wheels offered to do it for 20 a pop (80 total) that said, I just bought new ones. seemed silly to skimp when I was paying 2k for new wheels and tires already…

    Detach wood panel M3

    The wood portion itself does NOT detach (at least not easily). I chose to put the RPM replacement dash in mine. Looks amazing. I went matte finish to avoid any glare (and there is no significant glare at all when driving. Just beautiful, real carbon fiber. install in under 10 mins

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

    It’s misleading because it’s not standardized across their own trims in the same mode of car with the rollout subtracted only on the performance model. It’s not misleading by industry standard, but they 100% chose to present data the way they did so that at a glance (or to the untrained eye/non...

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

    It’s misleading only because you have to read Tesla reports performances data 0-60 with rollout and the LR without. Just makes the gap look bigger than it is when you look at the numbers. When you read the fine print then you realize the gap isn’t as big as seen in the numbers, assuming you know...

    Model 3 Performance feels slow?

    Off the line and a slightly tighter suspension is the main difference. You have to decide if that’s worth it

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    If you expect absolutely nothing from them then you won’t be disappointed. Expect car at end window they gave you. It’s the only way to stay sane

    I’ve seen this too. But it seems less common than the Houdini.

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    It is my opinion that the SAs lone job is to play defense for Tesla by doing the following: 1) Telling you to check your login for a vin 2) Hiding from you 3) Telling you it’s coming sometime in the dates as outlined when you bought Good things? 1) You don’t actually need the SA beyond...

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    As a registered independent I’ll never understand how things like EVs, climate change, pandemics, vaccines etc become political agendas or ideologies. I guess it’s because big corporations who actually run the parties (both of the parties) like to make people believe these are political issues...

    M3P coming soon and wife wants a better ride. Will 19's make any difference or do I have to go with 18's?

    Apologies. Factor is 1.6x the rotating mass to raw mass conversion. So 40lbs off wheels is 64lbs off. Agree you won’t feel the difference, but you will gain a tiny bit (as stated above)
  25. Mahamilto

    M3P coming soon and wife wants a better ride. Will 19's make any difference or do I have to go with 18's?

    19x9 has been great so far even on terrible roads. That’s all I can really definitely say. I didn’t want to go smaller due to looks.
  26. Mahamilto

    M3P coming soon and wife wants a better ride. Will 19's make any difference or do I have to go with 18's?

    Dropping weight will always improve acceleration. 10lbs off a wheel is like 40lbs (give or take) off the car because it’s unsprung rotating mass. So going to a wheel/tire combo that weighs 10 lbs less is like having 160lbs less weight in the car. Noticable, iffy. But maybe .05s off say a 0-60...
  27. Mahamilto

    M3P coming soon and wife wants a better ride. Will 19's make any difference or do I have to go with 18's?

    It’s both. Yes. But the tires are garbage. The geometry of the sidewall makes them prone to the blow out type I had and to bubbling. Unsprung weight is bad, but I’ve had 40 profile tires with a square/unstretched sidewall on heavy cast wheels before and didn’t have the nonsense happen like I did...
  28. Mahamilto

    M3P coming soon and wife wants a better ride. Will 19's make any difference or do I have to go with 18's?

    It’s not so much the wheels, it’s the tires. The profile is slim and the pirelli sloped sidewall is a disaster.
  29. Mahamilto

    M3P coming soon and wife wants a better ride. Will 19's make any difference or do I have to go with 18's?

    My 19s have been fine on bad roads. 20s… see below (only lasted 750 miles)
  30. Mahamilto

    M3P coming soon and wife wants a better ride. Will 19's make any difference or do I have to go with 18's?

    My forgestar CF5V 19x9 were 21lbs, so full setup is 47 with the all seas stock is 55 and change. Satin black for reference. Matches the door trim 100% and sit dead flush
  31. Mahamilto

    M3P coming soon and wife wants a better ride. Will 19's make any difference or do I have to go with 18's?

    19” Forgestar CF5V here with 245/40/19 Amazing Michelin Pilot Sport All-Season 4 that I beyond recommend. Ride comfort? Maybe a smidge better. If you really want better ride comfort rumor has it you need the comfort coil overs. 18s may be a bit better, but I’ll be 100% honest this thing doesn’t...

    Vendor 20" Forgiato E Vecolo EV 001 Wheel Set - AERO+ Centers - Model 3 & Model Y

    Can you convince them to make them in 19s lol? Need the sidewall as it clearly fixed my pothole problem. 2200 miles on my 19s with no flats or bubbles vs 750 miles on my stock 20s with 3 tires that bubbled and one that blew out completely.

    This is my take as well. I just see that as, well, intentionally misleading

    How do you live with the wind/tire noise? Comparing to Model S.

    What year 3? the newer ones have double pane windows and more weather/wind stripping. My 2021 P is pretty darn quiet... much quieter than my wife’s Lexus RX to be honest. Either way the radio goes on when I get in, but I’m always surprised when people say the car isn’t quiet. Especially if...

    Model 3 LR vs Performance for 1-2 track days a year

    They (summer tires) aren’t supposed to be driven under 40* Fahrenheit. It’s because the compound has a much higher freezing temp because the extra silica in the compound (and extra additives). My experience has been they become un-drivable below 25 if there is any moisture around. This makes...

    M3P - Who switched from a (true) sports car?

    RS3 would be the closest, but reality... it’s too small for me. The A3/S3/RS3 just lacks any curb appeal. It’s a hard pass for me. I’d never even consider one. Add in the premium gas and it’s a non-starter by comparison. I paid 3.50-4.xx a gallon for premium here in NYC. Brutal. Same goes for...

    M3P - Who switched from a (true) sports car?

    Nothing south of 75k will sniff it in 0-80 or in terms of daily driver characteristics. It’s just reality. 56k is a bargain for a car this fast, this easy, and this cheap to own (as far as energy/fuel and maintenance)

    Michelin Pilot Sport EV [tires]

    I have to ask. So why do you feel they chose to report the performance excluding rollout, while the long range from a total stop?
  40. Mahamilto

    Michelin Pilot Sport EV [tires]

    The choice to do it that way is inherently misleading. It’s an assumption that many won’t read the fine print, or not understand it if they do. It’s a tactical choice. One that works. It’s also in the fine print for a reason. Hell, the Michelin posted print seen earlier in this thread is ALSO...

    ^^^ this I don’t think this is debatable. Literally every single corporation on the planet would bold face lie in advertising if they could get away with it. And they do... but use asterisks. Or say “your results may vary”. Or “results not typical” in faint print somewhere. I’m glad you trust...

    ... a week old I guess lol? but in seriousness. These should provide a boost for all EV cars. Maybe not the 10%, manufacturers love to post “the best” result to bolster their claims (literally everyone does this. Just look at Tesla using rollout in the 0-60 claims...), but the technology is...

    Passengers complaining about seats

    Yeah. I don’t get this either. These seats are by far the most comfortable of any Car I’ve owned, with the C5 corvette being the only close equal. (I loved that drivers position). Theses seats are way better than my wife’s Lexus (a glorified Toyota) Honest question, are the people complaining...

    Aftermarket Wheels on Model 3

    Satin black. Under 2k. Courtesy of @MODEL+ Tires are PS AS4. Maybe a touch louder than the PZero with the acoustic foam, but they grip well for an all season.
