    Prices up for everything except the M3P - potential for suggesting upgrades are near?

    Noticed that the price went up on all of the vehicles by a few thousand, except the M3P. Anyone know or think this may mean there's potential for an upgraded model soon? I don't think they would jack up the price on something right before they upgraded it, they would do it after.

    Model 3 motor changes on the plaid

    Sandy has a great video (as usual) on the Plaid motors. They make the claim in this video that introducing this specific design change, allows Tesla to pull an additional 25% HP, and 25% TQ from the motors. I'm making an assumption here, but having this small segmentation on both ends is...

    Upcoming M3P hairpin motor question

    Hoping someone with a background in motor tech can share some info on this. I watched a few youtube videos concerning the differences between traditional windings and hairpin wiring tech. Porsche claims that the hairpin can produce more torque, and holds sustained power better than traditional...

    ANyone else with a 2021 get passenger lumbar?

    the new m3p I picked up has a build date of 9/21 but I have functional passenger lumbar. No one else I know has it on the 21's. Did anyone else get it that has a build date towards the end of the model year? Didn't realize it even had it on there until today.

    Anything like an MPP party box for a model s raven?

    Assuming his doesn't have track mode like our 3's do; he was wanting to use it for a drift day at a local track. Any options available for this other than to pop the fuse like some of the other threads have suggested? Didn't seem like the fuse removal thing was a viable option for the types of...

    only 9/100ths difference in 0-60 times after 74,000 miles

    Trading in the car tomorrow for a new M3P, figured I'd do a final dragy in the same exact setup. 2019 M3P stealth, 19" with continental all seasons. The run today was on the same exact setup, with tires that are 2 years old. first runs were done with +/- 10,000 miles on the odo, today it has...

    Has anyone ordered the 19x8.5 geminis for the m3p?

    Curious if anyone has ordered a set of the gemini wheels sold with the winter tire package from tesla for the m3p, but ordered the wheels without the tires? Hard to reach our service department and didn't feel like driving all the way over there just to ask. If you did, what was the price on them?

    FS: M3 both front control arms and compression arms (used - good for use if installing solid bushings)

    Just pulled off a set (both sides) of compression arms and control arms off a model 3. Main bushings on both are ripped and/or exhausted. This would be a good set of arms to use if you were planning on installing the solid/spherical bearing kits and didn't want your car to be on jack stands...

    Rear control arm bushing on the front replacement

    Sort of jinxed myself a few days ago by talking about how much abuse the car has held up to over 60k+ miles... Power sliding around some stuff last night and had the type of understeer feeling pushing like the front tire sidewalls were flexing a lot. Long story short, looks like the rear...

    Model 3 went down 100 feet embankment and all four passengers survived

    Happened in San Bernardino. Report says they were speeding, went down 100 feet, but they all survived. Looks like the bottom front of the driver's door may have an "unplugged" performance sticker. Is it anyone on here?

    Speed sensitive power nerfing @ lower SOC after last update

    Looks like they may have implemented a speed sensitive power nerfing metric based on your SOC below 20% now. I just noticed when the car reached 19% SOC about 80mph, 4 dots popped up on the accelerator bar. Was off the highway a few minutes later below 45 and it was 3 dots. Slowed down at an...

    Anyone notice the alarm sensitivity is increased after the update a few days ago? Had my car up on jacks at least a dozen times in the past year and never had an issue. today i was rotating tires and the alarm went off 3 separate times, it has never happened even a single time before. Curious...

    20" M3P OEM wheels w/TPMS & Michelin A/S 3+ (8/32 tread)

    Have a set of these up for grabs. 20" OEM M3P wheels with TPMS and Michelin A/S 3+ tires on them. All tires have between 6.5mm and 6.7mm of tread left. There are a few of the usual nicks from road debris on them, but no curb rash or anything significant. Believe $1800 is a fair price since...

    Taptes wireless charger works with iphone pro max?

    Anyone use the Taptes charger (2020 version) and have an iphone 11 max? Was curious if it fits in there upright or if you have to lay it on the horizontal charger. Believe the 11 max is the same dimensions as the 12 max, and wanted to check before buying one. TIA

    PSA: Pirelli PZ4 sport tires - steer clear of them

    As a PSA - got a set of Pirelli PZ4 sport tires because they were extremely lightweight (21 pounds), and figured if they worked well with porsche, they would do decent with an M3P... Those tires have to be hot to get sticky, like asphalt well over 100 degrees and tires way above that kind of...

    historical battery upgrade releases?

    With the model S/X, did Tesla wait for a new model year to upgrade the packs say from 85 to 90's and 100's etc? Or did they just release them throughout the year when tech was available? Contemplating picking up a second M3 as a toy, not in a rush to get it, but if it will be a model year later...

    How Ford's Mach-E 1400 makes lots of noise

    Just wanted to follow up on this, we have an official answer now. It's not the motors or the gears, we were both wrong. They are military strength speakers to simply make a lot of noise.

    question on cycle life of battery

    The estimated 1500 cycles that the battery is expected to last through, do you calculate that by adding both the charge and discharge cycles? Or does it only consider the discharge cycles?

    Power delivery change on last update - higher battery power showing in logs

    After the update last friday, my car (and apparently a few others on here) seemed to feel a bit faster/butt dyno. The biggest change I noticed, was when the car was at lower SOC, it seemed to have picked up a substantial amount of power. Previously, I have kept data logs on SOC launches...

    Tunnel cutter in the parking lot?

    Anyone here around Vegas that knows if those huge things out in front of the convention center are the cutter they used to dig the tunnels? Couldn't get close to it and see if it had teeth on it, but thought it was weird if it actually disassembled in pieces like it was. I was thinking...

    Custom monoblock forged wheels Info

    This is the fastest time listed in dragy; does anyone know if there are any others posted that are faster? 3.14 without the rollout, 2.97 with the rollout. On the 19s with continental all seasons to top it off. Only mod is the RB brake rotors the lighten everything up

    Front lip similar to unplugged's version?

    Anyone know of a lip available out of ABS similar to the design of the unplugged version? Lots of lips around, but they seem to either be excessively thick, or not be a constant smooth curve. They've got that change in the middle that goes up and down by the grill. TIA

    Torque level dynamics between f/r motors during acceleration

    Continental tires on 19" m3p quality?

    Wanted to ask, this "stealth" (or whatever people call it) m3p I bought has Continental contiprocontact RX tires on it, and they don't seem to have nearly the grip that the Michelins did on the car I test drove.
