    Supercharging on a really hot day

    If you can, try to avoid charging during the peak rate hours, and also driving when the sun is high to lower AC consumption. But, when travelling this might be not always easy if you need to drive all the day to your destination. Be carefull not to be drowsy when driving under hot weather...

    Later this year, Tesla will begin production of Supercharger equip. that will enable non-Tesla EV drivers in North America to use Tesla Superchargers

    Tesla Superchargers in Europe already have two plugs (one for Model S/X, and one for Model 3/Y) so others EV can use them. It is interesting to notice by opposition that Rivian will instal new CCS chargers but they will be accessible only to Rivian owners. However, I believe this will certainly...

    It depend of the year, for previous Model 3 the speaker shelf had a larger grill helping the sound going into the cabin. See this thread. Some of us want to hear our Subwoofer more than we hate road noise.

    Model 2

    I doubt that Tesla will sell a Model 2 / Q in the US since those might be manufactured in China or Germany. The US market for compact cars is very limited and Tesla will certainly not build the Model 2 / Q here, so those should have to be imported and paid shipping and import taxes, so better...

    FSD vs Stopped School Bus

    Can FSD be "officially" used on street roads? I had the impression that FSD was currently designed to be used only on Freeways, except for the "Beta" testers. Anyways, other "Self Driving" systems that Consumer Report tested were only on freeways.

    If you are talking about the verical plastic covers between the left and right seats and the door? I realize now that you mention it, that there is no release, like a plastic pin, that you can find in various areas. So you need to force a little bit to remove them. However, I didn't have any...

    I gave my Model 3 to a body to replace a rear quarter and wheelhouse. I didn't want to get my seats damaged as I noticed that the body shop just pilled up the seats in a corner of the shop. So I tried to remove the rear seat. The bottom is very easy to remove, there are two electrical wires...

    Coolers for long weekend/week in trunk

    I installed a spare tire under the speaker sshelf, so the vertical clerarnce of my trunk was limitted (going from 18" to 12") So I removed the trunk liner and I was able to lower the trunk platform by 6", see picture below. Maybe this could help solving your access problem.

    Glass roof shades for 2018 Model 3?

    I would recommend not to obscure the lower part of the rear window, where the fog wires are located. Because you will lose the use of your rear view mirror.

    My Supercharging experience... Is this right?

    If you travel in an area with a low density of SuperCharger, I never go below 30% of Soc. As I often experienced having to make detours because of an accident, mud slide, fire, or constructions. Better safe than sorry.
