    How to Clear Personal Info on my M3 Before Posting for Sale?

    I haven't tested this lately, but a couple of years ago on my 2013 Model S, even once it was reset, it could still open my garage door. Obviously the name was gone, but I could just pull up in front of the house and configure the garage door opener and the garage would open. The rolling code...

    MODS: Could you please make a sub-forum for 'reservation sales'???

    As wishy washy as Tesla is on policies I won't be surprised if selling reservations comes back again some day. They are blocking it right now because of how much their prices have changed, but under times of low rate of change they might be back to turning a blind eye. Like so many others I...

    2013 Tesla Model S for Sale $32,499 OBO

    Steve, did you live outside the Chicago land for many years? Were you someplace without winter, because that would be a bonus to me and probably many people. Chicago winter is hard on things and getting cars locally that haven't spent many winters here is a bit of a treat.

    Model S Snow Tires with TPMS

    Many of the older cars got upgraded over the years. The quick and easy way is if you can see what the pressure is in each tire, then you have the TPMS system of the 50900+ VIN cars in the older car. My old 2013 was upgraded, as were many others.

    Another front suspension control arm failure

    I can't speak for the new S/X but the 3 uses an entirely different suspension with very little Aluminum. It does use plastic, so different issues but none known yet. That break doesn't look like there were any crack propagation, it looks like it broke out at the end, and then the part near...

    Another front suspension control arm failure

    WOW, that is clearly wear and tear!!! (sarcasm) Unless the tire went flat because the wheel is no longer round anymore, I can't see this being wear and tear. Small daily impacts should not cause a catastrophic low mileage failure. I will say that if the ball joint was oversized, or the...

    Another front suspension control arm failure

    The only way I can figure this as a wear and tear at 32K miles is if the steel receptacle for the ball joint is expanding due to corrosion. As everyone already knows as steel corrodes through oxidation it expands, and the forces it can create during the process are quite tremendous. This could...

    2019 Model X - Raven, Standard Range, 5 seats. - What's it worth?

    Cheap cars are expensive right now. The best way to game the system right now is sell a car for more than it is normally worth, and then buy something newer for the same money early next year. For the Model S that ship appears to have sailed more or less the time Tesla started shipping new...

    Another front suspension control arm failure

    Upper control arm on the three is made of steel and hasn't had the same issues with cracking as the Aluminum arms on the S. I second the assessment it is a ball joint. I am in the process of obtaining parts to swap mine too. My 2018 M3 LR creaks and squeaks if I so much as wiggle in the...
