    Lifetime Wh/mi

    2018 with 18.5k miles. Very little driving in 2020 since I was/am working from home. 2019 featured quite a few track days. Daily wheels/tires are 19x9.5 with 265/35 PS4S in sunny SoCal, with a semi-aggressive alignment. Lifetime average is 320 Wh/mile. o_O

    Aftermarket Wheels on Model 3

    The rear. IMO, the front is near perfect, and the rear could use a few more millimeters. I wanted square, so I accept it as is. I'm also on thicker rotors, so you would get similar fitment with a +30 or 31.

    MPP Comfort Coilover reviews?

    I have access to a vinyl cutter, so I made mine with the same color as my chrome delete. The other option is to use the logo from the sticker that you have and scrap the lettering.

    MPP Comfort Coilover reviews?

    For track days, that's my go to spot. For ALL other days, I prefer the subtlety of this spot:

    Vendor NEW: MPP Model 3 Comfort Adjustable Coilovers RWD/AWD!

    Yep. These guys are worth the drive! They are 45+ minutes away from me, and there's very little to do in the area (without rideshare), and I still make the trip when I need some work done. They've aligned, corner balanced, installed my upper control arms, and fixed a sloppy coilover install from...

    I've Purchased 50+ Aftermarket Performance Products - Why MPP is Best

    100% exactly why I chose their products from the beginning and had zero hesitation to put money into pre-ordering it, and will continue to do so. Or at least have a distributor located stateside.

    Model 3 Zero-G referral wheels 20x9 +40 with PS4S tires

    Through the app, and also contacted the service center. The service center replied quickly. Once I sent a copy of the parts invoice showing the +34, and an image of the wheel showing the +40, they confirmed that they would swap for me on Monday.

    Understood! I've lost quite a bit, and just had another cancelled this morning :/ I might need to stretch my preferred locations to get some seat time in this year. Looking forward to your recap.

    MASTER THREAD: Comprehensive Road-Course Modification Guide — Optimizing the 3 for the track

    Yes. This is what I do. Much easier/quicker than the tub removal (which isn't really that bad). I imagine the MCS adjustment to be the same.

    Referral Reward: Forged Performance Wheels

    I scheduled an appointment last Friday and indicated that I was eligible for the referral wheels. I got confirmation on Monday that my wheels would arrive at the service center next Thursday, 5/14. If anyone is interested, let me know. These are the 34mm offset type.

    Referral Reward: Forged Performance Wheels

    The black is a coating that will wear off once you use the brakes. So, the rotors don't remain black, only the rotor hats will.

    Vendor Official Signature Wheel Gallery | Fitment Q&A Thread

    I'm telling you, I had the same problem. I'm also telling you, that if you clean the hub as mentioned, you will have an easier time getting the wheels on. In the year that I've owned them, I have had the wheels off and back on more than 10 times and I no longer experience the issue. @dmd2005...

    Vendor Official Signature Wheel Gallery | Fitment Q&A Thread

    As @dmd2005 noted, it's likely the corrosion on the hub. You'll have to really clean it, and then it goes on much easier. It's also worth putting some anti-seize on the hub to reduce the likelihood of the corrosion building back up.

    Supercharger - San Diego, CA (Qualcomm / Pacific Heights Blvd., 12 V2 stalls)

    I saw a post in the local FB group that indicated they were all offline, and showed a technician was there working on them. Likely needed to shut them down to fix a few broken ones. Bad timing with this rain though... Or this

    I'm super curious to know if any changes are coming to the Model at the same time that this is being released. Will there finally be a Ludicrous Mode??? Yep. And I'm calling an outcry of complaints that this is only compatible "with Model 3 Performance Dual Motor All-Wheel Drive with the...

    Adjusting rear coilovers ride height

    The part where it's stated that "you need to" remove it. In that case, I will agree that it's "not true". I have also made adjustments (10mm) without removing that bolt. As others have stated, it's definitely possible, and even easy to do with the MPP setup. Whereas, it's not really possible...

    Model 3 Tearing it Up at the Track

    I saw the prototype at Laguna Seca. It is quite nice looking, and looked high quality. I'd consider a CF rear deck lid if it allowed for an adjustable/replaceable rear spoiler.

    Pure curiosity as to what was replaced, and yes, very much interested in seeing the rates.

    Taking a California driver's test in a Model 3?

    Yes. I've confirmed it by mistakenly thinking the car was parked, and then opening the door. No additional action is required, and no additional brake engages.

    Congrats! What was the final repair bill, and can you share the list of parts rerlaced/repaired?

    Taking a California driver's test in a Model 3?

    Nah. When you press the park button on the stalk, and you hear the rear parking brake engage, it's in Park. It doesn't require holding the button. Source: page 50 and 63 of the owner's manual.

    Million mile motor?

    Pretty sure they're referring to the 3. If you're a member of enough Model 3 groups, you'll see them pop up in your feed. I think part of the issue is that Tesla does not always provide sufficient information to the customer when there's a motor problem, and just labels it as a "motor failure"...

    Tesla has a new high tech steering wheel

    Interesting, but I don't see it actually mentioned that the gear stalk is going away. Rather, it stated that it "may additionally include indicators provided at a lower portion of the steering wheel indicative of a selected gear engagement of the vehicle." I think it would be a mess to have...
