    Parking garage [car damaged in a parking garage]

    Thanks @Subie2M3 Stinks but found a reputable Tesla certified body shop that will fix it. Just wish ppl would be more careful with things.

    Valet pin

    Thank you @jjrandorin. I have read that multiple times. You can also create a PIN remotely from the app. The issue is that the pin from the app doesnt translate to the pin in the car so there is something not snycing. Trying to understand if others had this issue

    Valet pin

    Hi I set the valet pin from my Tesla app and then turned on valet mode. I then went to the car and switched profiles back to me at which point the car asks for the pin, obviously. When typing in the pin in the car I just set in the app the car rejects it. The only way to shut off valet mode is...

    Parking garage [car damaged in a parking garage]

    Thanks @Knightshade The car doesn’t go to sleep actually as every time I check it the app pops right up with location etc. regardless I am going to ask them to keep windows up and car locked from now on. With that I can have sentry on but would this have triggered an event? Just don’t want a...

    Parking garage [car damaged in a parking garage]

    @Knightshade thanks for the reply. I did not have sentry on as the parking attendant was driving the car into a pole or whatever else he drove into. Even if sentry was on would it really have captured this? Plus the garage leaves the car unlocked and windows down. If we engage sentry then the...

    Parking garage [car damaged in a parking garage]

    My parking garage did a nice little number on my car. What I want to know for future reference is, is there a way to have the dashcam continuously record or sentry? Car is left in parking garage for 8-10 hours and have a 500gb hard drive connected to the car but know dashcam overwrites itself...

    Range Loss Over Time, What Can Be Expected, Efficiency, How to Maintain Battery Health

    This is what I experienced as well. I further noticed that sentry mode is taking 4 mi/hr as opposed to 1. As soon as I drive the car the battery starts to go back up and taking a trip of 30 miles or more and the car only registers a 15 mile loss there. Something definitely seems off with this...

    2020.48.35.5 oddities

    After 2020.48.35.5 installed on my car (2018 model 3 LR) I started noticing peculiar things happening with the battery and wanted to know if others are exhibiting the same thing I have changed no settings from the prior update to the new one. I did a hard reboot after the update installed. 1...

    Tesla API Token Generator

    That is strange as I thought the app required 2FA as well not just the website. I will have to try your token generator script again as it was failing when I tried last time. I know teslafi requires the 2FA code in order for it to regenerate the token. Would assume the same for any token...

    Tesla API Token Generator

    Thank you. That would be a great help for those of us who have enabled 2FA.

    @HankLloydRight Out of curiosity does your script take into account 2FA?

    How I Recovered Half of my Battery's Lost Capacity

    I am doing as what SomeJoe7777 laid out. I do not plug in every day. I wait for the car to get down to different states of charge (be it 15% all the way up to 50%) and ensure it isnt plugged in so there is enough time for the BMS to capture this information be it 1-3 days between charges...

    How I Recovered Half of my Battery's Lost Capacity

    I have been following this thread and decided a couple of months ago to try this out as i have been seeing some decline in degradation (~3%). I have a M3 LR, Dec 2018. Over the past 2.5 months I have followed the "protocol" and instead of noticing any increase, I have been noticing a more...

    Realignment cost

    Actually misheard. Service center wants around $160. Even that feels quite steep

    Realignment cost

    Local service center quoted me $116. $305 is highway robbery.

    Ah man. That must mean your installer did a great job. No bunched up areas at all on any curved section?

    Pics of PPF wrap

    No lifting. Just a little dirt at edges. Once it gets warmer out I’m going to give the car a good wash and see how the doors look at the edges and if the dirt won’t free up. Over time I can see that could lead to the edges lifting but it seems very much adhere to the car.

    Pics of PPF wrap

    Thanks @jkoya. Installer said it was template. In retrospect I should have told him to wrap the doors. Only thing wrapped is the hood. Also get dirt behind PPF at the door edges. Mostly comes off but still quite annoying and some stays. From afar no one can see but up close it’s not great...

    Pics of PPF wrap

    The reason I ask is I have PPF that was done via a template and I want the installer to redo a few areas and wrap them. I’m curious to see how the wrap seals around the edges of the doors cleanly without overlap or “bunching up” thanks

    Hello I am looking for how PPF wraps are done around the doors. Can someone show me pics of how the wrap was done on the inside of the doors around all the edges? thanks

    HW3 Install Time

    For those who have had the HW3 upgrade how long did it take? my SC is saying it will take a day (overnight) as they need to calibrate the cameras, drive it, and also check for any overheating post install. Is this a normal timeframe?

    Car Not Sleeping

    What I am looking to understand is when the car is home connected to WiFi what is it doing from an upload/download perspective? I’m trying to track or log what the car is doing while on WiFi to correlate to the sleep pattern. I’m noticing it takes ~2 hours to go to sleep.

    @hcdavis3 thank you. Out of curiosity do you have any monitoring like teslafi or stats?

    Car Not Sleeping

    How long after a drive does the car go to sleep on average when the car is parked at home (no sentry on)? I just started using teslafi and noticed that when parked at home I get automated emails from teslafi telling me the car is trying to go to sleep and then follow up emails that it failed...

    Battery degradation - 2019.32.2.2

    @KenC thar is a great chart. The avg temp where I live is around 44f now and I have lost anywhere between 4-7 miles of range if I charge to 90%. Interestingly enough when I charged over a few cycles to 70% it closed that gap to 3-4 mi. When I bumped back up to 90% it stayed like that for a few...

    Battery degradation - 2019.32.2.2

    Well my first charge at the 70% level brought me to 212 not 217 as expected. I am also charging at 32 amps as opposed to 48amps. I assume I have to keep doing this for a few cycles to see if any of this will work. Looking through this thread I see many ppl have said the same thing so will report...

    Battery degradation - 2019.32.2.2

    @rad1027 thank you. I will most definitely be trying this to see if this helps. Perhaps it breaks the routine of the car always being charged back to 90% which I have been doing as well. I also tried lowering the amps for charging and that didn’t do anything as still showing 4-5miles off so...

    Battery degradation - 2019.32.2.2

    @SilverSp33d3r i did let the car sit from 7:30 when completed until 2:30 when I checked but this is the first time since owning the car that this has happened if I have left it plugged in for a bit after charging. @Alfred should I charge at a slower pace than I currently am which is 48amps /...

    Battery degradation - 2019.32.2.2

    I thought the new update was to have not just performance but range increase. I know the release notes only speak to the former but seeing on Tesla’s design studio they show more range I thought perhaps that would have translated to more range myself not what I would have seen as a 3% drop

    Battery degradation - 2019.32.2.2

    hello all I charge my car religiously to 90% level which on the LR AWD means I typically get 279 miles. I’ve noticed that either with the 2019.32.2.2 update which coincided with the cold weather rolling in that my car is showing 90% as 274 and just today 270. If this is true that means 3%...

    Driver door rubber squeaking

    whenever I drive and hit a bump I hear squeaking/rubbing coming from the driver door seal near the top of the door. If I roll down the window and go over a bump, no issue. Does anyone know of any spray or solution that can work to remove this squeaking?

    Rubber Seals

    I just went to the Tesla showroom / service center and saw that they had the flange out. Speaking to service they stated the flange should be out. Apparently no one told the factory it should be installed that way. :confused:

    Trunk seal replaced by mobile service

    I just went to a Tesla showroom / service center and looked at the trunk. They have it exactly as what @KenC is showing earlier in this thread. Speaking to service, that is the correct way. I am going to pull the flange out so its seated correctly. Guess it wasn't installed correctly from...

    PPF Wrap - this look right?

    recently got my front end and all doors wrapped in 3M. I just recently washed the car and right where the wrap begins on the edges of the door I see ever so slight dirt. Assume I can perhaps scrub it out but curious to see pics of others who have had their car wrapped and what the area where the...

    Need ceramic and paint correction in Westchester/Fairfield county ny/ct

Wrapped all painted surfaces except the trunk, rear quarter panels and rear bumper. Also ppf’d the...

    Rubber Seals

    I know when mobile service came and removed the old seal, it was held in with a very thick adhesive. Needed to use some muscle to get it out.

    Rubber Seals

    @KenC, that is very interesting. I always wanted to look at other M3's to see what the trunk seal looked like but never had time. It is as simple as lifting up the seal and I will be easily able to find the flange? Is this only for the bottom by the bumper or does this flange continue around...
