    Anyone else gets that notification on their phone even though the frunk is closed? Usually I get the notification a few hours after its parked. I have a 2021 LR AWD

    Why do Tesla need 2 motors for AWD?

    Stupid question, but you know how for gas AWD cars, they only have 1 engine; so technically Tesla can implement AWD using just 1 motor, right? Why do they use 2?

    NVH: 2021 refresh VS early-mid 2019?

    Have a 2021, used to have a 2019. No improvement in noise, in fact the 2021 has a bit more wind noise.

    Tesla Model 3 vs. Honda Accord Hybrid

    Also depending on where you live in California, the electricity can be stupidly expensive. They also imposed a $150 registration fee for EVs. Insurance might be more expensive since Tesla is considered luxury. Anyways, just saying that costs are not that different between EVs and hybrids, but...

    Tesla Model 3 vs. Honda Accord Hybrid

    150 miles commute is not recommended for SR+. It is rated at 263 miles, yes, but you only charge to 90% and should not use the bottom 10%, that leaves u with 263 * 0.8 = 210 usable range. Highway is only 70~80% efficient, that means the 210 miles = 168 actual miles. After a year, your battery...

    Does anyone know the UV specs on the new double-pane windows?

    If its that serious, I think you should tint it just for peace of mind.

    Does anyone know the UV specs on the new double-pane windows?

    There was a Reddit post that said 99% cuz the thingy in between the double paned glass blocks all the UV. Not sure how it works, not a rocket scientist :p

    Why does the navigation always want to go via the highway?

    I think the navigation just picks the first route that Google Maps suggests, and Google Maps usually suggests the fastest route, which is mostly highways. But I agree that the navigation should offer multiple routes like Google Maps.

    California DMV - Plates & HOV Stickers

    Hopefully its a light blue. I feel like dark blue would only look good with the blue Model 3.

    MASTER THREAD: 2021 Model 3 - Charge data, battery discussion etc

    Bjorn's charging test on 2021 (LG) vs 2019 models: I'm in the US and I am convinced that I got the LG variant... my battery was 348 mi when full and the charging curve at V3 looks similar to Bjorn's. I will charge it up and share the energy consumption pictures on Saturday. I think China's LR...

    NVH: 2021 refresh VS early-mid 2019?

    See my post: Upgrade from 2019 SR+ to 2021 LR. Some thoughts. Wind noise has never been an issue for me in either models. Road noise still the same. I guess double paned windows reduce some noise coming from cars next to you, but not noticeable. Suspension, handling, etc, all the same.

    MASTER THREAD: 2021 Model 3 - Charge data, battery discussion etc

    is there a way to find out the total battery capacity without tapping into the BMS?

    MASTER THREAD: 2021 Model 3 - Charge data, battery discussion etc

    Bjorn's video shows 70 kWh usable: That is 3 kWh less than the current LR, ~12 less miles. Even with a heat pump, I am not sure how they are able to advertise the 353-mile range?

    MASTER THREAD: 2021 Model 3 - Charge data, battery discussion etc

    Sorry haven't been following this thread. Is LG battery in the 2021 LR? My 2021 LR seems to charge slower than older LRs, some others have this issue as well.

    2021 LR not getting 250 kw at V3?

    Hmm I guess I dont know. But I drove ~20 min for freeway before charging, outside temperature 50~60 F, and I didn't see a pre-condition message.

    2021 LR not getting 250 kw at V3?

    Supercharger - Elk Grove, CA - Elk Grove Blvd. (LIVE 21 Jul 2020, 16 V3 stalls)

    Supercharger - Elk Grove, CA - Elk Grove Blvd. (LIVE 21 Jul 2020, 16 V3 stalls)

    Charged here with 10% left today, but wasn't able to hit 250 kw, peaked around 150. There were no other cars charging. Are some stalls not 250? I have a LR AWD.

    2021 Refresh - LR AWD Waiting Room

    FYI guys the delivery estimate is not accurate, the text is more accurate. My date was 11/13 ~ 12/11, then updated to 11/19 ~ 11/20, then 11/20 ~ 11/20, and today it disappeared.

    Is the model 3 better than sex

    Why not sex with the model 3? Maybe the 12v port.

    Unfortunately I don't think the updated estimate is accurate.. Showing 11/20 ~ 11/20 today, no VIN or email

    2021 Refresh - LR AWD Waiting Room

    My theory: this quarter, they are delivering cars to CA around 11/20 ~ 11/30 and 12/20 ~ 12/30. Last quarter the tried to squeeze all CA orders in the last 2 weeks, which was way too chaotic (they had interns doing home deliveries).

    Clean Vehicle Assistance Program and Tesla

    That literally makes no sense... But a lot of people think like that and I guess that's why most people are in debt (which is fine).

    2021 Refresh - LR AWD Waiting Room

    I suggest getting a new SA if you can. I kept getting matched to 2020 VINs too and my old SA kept telling me he would fix it but never did. Then I somehow got matched to a new SA, and he fixed it right away. He responds to *most* of my emails too. Not sure why there are so many incompetent...

    Fastrak Flex or Fastrak CAV?

    What's the difference between the two? I heard that you should keep Fastrak Flex set to 3+ even if you are driving solo, but this doesn't seem to be true anymore? Thanks
