    Blind Spot [I want a chime for blind spot warning]

    No, that's not what I mean. People are used to a bright yellow warning light. That's what I mean. As @mswlogo says, many people do not like the current implementation which I believe is why this thread was started. I don't think anyone denies there is some lane-change warning system in place...

    Blind Spot [I want a chime for blind spot warning]

    Tesla could easily implement a bright yellow warning light on the 'virtual' mirror. Make that and audible warning a user-selectable feature.

    Usual rear windshield tint issue or I got fooled?

    @shmiker, wrinkled tint is not usual for the rear of a Model 3. That is complete garbage. $950 for only the rear window seems very high as well. It's no secret that the 3 has a huge rear piece of glass but that should be obvious for an installer and they should be totally aware of the challenge...

    Looks great. What is the offset on these and can offsets be spec'd differently?

    Hansshow vs Tesla Offer Power Frunk/Trunk - which one to buy?

    @gadgetfreaky are you referring to button pushes on the switch above the rear license plate? That seems odd. As @Durzel mentioned, contact them. They are responsive to follow up keeping in mind they are 15 hours ahead from pacific standard time.

    Hansshow Power Frunk Trouble

    When power windows were first installed in cars there was likely a segment of the population that asked why people couldn't simply crank their windows manually. Hard hard could that be?;)

    Mobile Connector no longer included with new cars [posted 04/16/2022 - Tesla confirms adapter included with cars ordered before 04/17/22]

    Some owners rarely use the mobile charger so the first part of Elon's comment, "Usage statistics were super low, so seemed wasteful" is absolutely true. However, most people also have very low usage of their fire extinguishers, or tire repair kits, etc but owning those items would not be...

    @smatthew, when your car is in 'carwash' mode, is your Hansshow trunk kick sensor deactivated?

    Shocking and awesome. The service, not the motel bed analogy :)

    Creaking noise from suspension - resolved!

    Unfortunately it is just standard practice by all car companies for customers to pay for repairs outside the warranty period regardless on whether or not it is a "known" issue. The only saving grace is if the company decides the issue warrants a recall. For example, the Model S MCU issue...

    Another subwoofer option - NVX Audio

    I thought you bought directly from NVX. That service from Sonic is not good and agree I would never buy something again from a seller like that. Thanks for sharing that feedback.
  14. tlr1000

    Another subwoofer option - NVX Audio

    @Sellout, is your auto-on selector set at 'enable'? Since you are getting a replacement sub from NVX probably best to run that for a while before sinking more $$ down and potentially end up down the rabbit hole.

    Electric Frunk - Tesla Offer

    As mentioned in my opening post I was quite frustrated with this kit and it took a long time to get it sorted out. Then I realized the issue (at least in my case) was not the kit but from the poor alignment of hook/latch from the factory. Did you install the kit yourself or hire someone? At...

    Electric Frunk - Tesla Offer

    There are two major sellers of power frunk kits for the X being EVOffer (formerly known as Tesla Offer) and Hansshow. The kit I helped install is from EVOffer and they have a great track record for customer service. Tesla itself does not sell a power frunk kit for any Tesla that I am aware of.

    Differences in these LED sequential turn signal fog lights

    Thanks for clarifying. Guess that means those with factory fog lights would lose that functionality for the cosmetic change. The one thing that confused me was the fact that some instructions I've seen rely on oem fog light power for these units but guess that power source is now used for...

    Differences in these LED sequential turn signal fog lights

    The oem fog lights are purpose designed for fog situations. Although these are called "fog lights" do they actually emit a fog beam pattern or just random scattered led light for cosmetic purposes? To put it another way, for those with oem fog lights, will changing to these decrease the lighting...

    H&R Lowering Springs

    I think this is a difficult question to answer yes or no to. I never use car-washes but assume they vary in height clearance needed depending on the system they use. Would be like asking if the car clears a speed bump - answer being it depends on the speed bump.

    Problem with Hansshow Support

    Great idea! I use one of these for my 3d printer since the slot is in an awkward spot. I actually 3d printed a mounting plate to relocate it and it would be easy to do the same for the trunk controller. Find a convenient spot and flush mount the adapter. The only drawback is that you can't see...

    Problem with Hansshow Support

    In a nut shell, download firmware on a microsd card, access location of your control box (for trunk kit, most people have the control box behind a trim panel on right rear of trunk and for frunk kit most have the control box beneath a panel near the 12v battery), slip the microsd card in the...

    Problem with Hansshow Support

    EVOffer has better compatibility on all fronts. They constantly update firmware which they make readily accessible on their github site. For example, they recently updated the firmware so the trunk kit is compatible with carwash mode. My kit works perfectly with my 2018. Yes, there is a price...

    Vendor Official Signature Wheel Gallery | Fitment Q&A Thread

    It almost looked like the skirts were body colour. I think 99% of the sideskirts for the model 3 are not very attractive but these ones are nice. Don't think your car needs anything else!

    Looking good @TwoK4drSi. The brushed barrel is a nice contrast. What sideskirts are those?

    New Heads Up Display for Model Y / 3

    The good part is the design of this thing looks very oem-ish. The bad is: even though it has a port of updating, Tesla updates can brick this thing and I'm guessing there's no guaranteed software support period like cell phones for example. it's expensive. Seems like a lot of cash for...

    Hansshow vs Tesla Offer Power Frunk/Trunk - which one to buy?

    Exactly what @Durzel said. The problem with the foot sensor is that it could be triggered by things like moving streams of water which would not be great in a carwash. Prior to Tesla's implementation of carwash mode EV Offer managed this issue by releasing a firmware update for their trunk kit...

    2017-2020 Model 3 recalled for trunk/rear camera issue

    If your camera is not working or the rubber conduit has visible damage on it from bending repeatedly, then by all means book the appointment. For those that don't see damage and the camera is working, just wait. Otherwise Tesla will be overwhelmed by doing these and the people that truly need it...

    Vancouver, BC Model 3 SR+ Subwoofer installation?

    I think the answer depends on current draw. Seems overall, the penthouse power source handles higher current than the 12v battery. If you have a small low draw amp, the chances are less for experiencing a problem using the 12v battery. I don't think anyone has posted specs on how much the 12v...

    2017-2020 Model 3 recalled for trunk/rear camera issue

    I find it funny that CNBC would write, "Tesla could not be reached for comment" when they should well know by now that is because Tesla doesn't have a media relations department. Kind of like saying I wasn't able to reach the sommelier at Red Lobster. The recall notice refers to installation of...

    AliExpress Screen Swivel Kit

    AliExpress is definitely higher risk than North American based vendors. That being said, all purchases I received have been exactly what I expected. You seem to have experienced the opposite unfortunately. My worse experience on Ali was actually a recent purchase of a wireless charging pad. The...

    I disagree! Boobs on a bull are more useful!🤣

    sentry live mode not available in Canada

    Lack of remote sentry in Can'tnada is more likely due to Robellus' (Rogers, Bell, Telus) high data prices rather that regulatory issues. My guess

    AliExpress Screen Swivel Kit

    The reviewer broke that push tab for the connector and rather than releasing the connector with a pick he decided to force it out while wiggling it. I don't think his problem was an issue with the kit itself but rather carelessness. I would not be surprised if this is the only person this...

    Hansshow vs Tesla Offer Power Frunk/Trunk - which one to buy?

    Not only do they still sell the trunk kits for the cars that didn't come with the factory power trunk, but as recent as 2 months ago they released a firmware update to improve functionality for Tesla's introduction of carwash mode.

    Hansshow vs Tesla Offer Power Frunk/Trunk - which one to buy?

    I bought mine a long time ago. I didn't buy it in a sale and received mine in less than a week. As I mentioned they rarely do sales so I am guessing when they ran a BF sale they got lots of demand causing a backlog. I'm guessing you mean power cable rather than lower cable? If so that's not a...

    AliExpress Screen Swivel Kit

    I just installed mine today. It is perfect. The swivel has a fair amount of tension so it will never move from road vibration or bumps. It also has a soft click at dead center so very easy to make it perfectly center. The kit I bought from Ali is identical to locally sold ones (same factory)...

    AliExpress Screen Swivel Kit

    Very true about AliExpress reliability - very hit and miss. Depending on the item and seller, it may be worth it to buy from a US based seller and pay more. However, for this swivel kit, the seller I found on AliExpress sold the identical item (exactly what you see on DÆrik's youtube video). I...

    SR+ stuck in snow

    Moral of the story: use snow tires in the snow. Many people think it's ok to not use snow tires and can get by fine. That is only true if you keep your car parked when there's snow on the ground. If all-seasons give you the ability to move your car, it is a false sense of safety and will be...

    Swivel Screen : Warranty Issues

    The Tech Forum mount probably has better quality metal but these newer mounts have a much cleaner design for covering the hinge mechanism - way more OEM looking. The soft sleeve is not very attractive and makes the whole thing look very home-made. Not a copy per se but a refinement of the idea...

    AliExpress Screen Swivel Kit

    My AliExpress order took exactly 2 weeks. Product is identical to above mentioned sellers. As much as it is good to support local sellers it's hard to do when it's up to 3x more for the exact identical product.

    Hansshow vs Tesla Offer Power Frunk/Trunk - which one to buy?

    They do business in USD so not sure why there would be a foreign transaction fee. How much was that fee? On a side note, these guys rarely have sales so having a BF special is a bonus.

    Welcome to TMC. It's really not a matter of "how long it takes to resolve the issue" in your case but more like how long it takes before they're actually going to start working on your car. If your issue is the upper control arm replacement, it shouldn't take more than a few hours. I left my car...

    Are we like the red-headed step kids with regards to getting software updates?

    For those of you wondering, Sentry Live is not released in Canada.
