    Any compelling alternatives to a Model Y?

    I've had a M3 Dual motor for almost 3 years. I like my M3 quite a bit with the exception of a few gripes such as road noise, blind slot alerts and over all level of luxury not being up to par compared to other cars in that price range. I'm looking into getting a Y, however i realize that the...

    Would like to lock in current low interest rated, but lease runs out in June

    So I currently have a model 3 LR, which is a lease that runs out in June. I would like to order a model YP for my next vehicle, given the great rates right now I would like to purchase the vehicle. Anyone have any suggestions on how I can time this? I believe interest rates are set to go up in...

    Autopilot and backup camera suddenly not working

    Any thoughts on this guys? I've had my m3 LR AWD for about 2 months, been enjoying the hell out of it. Suddenly, yesterday evening when I got into my car to leave work I noticed that the back camera was just black and then noticed autopilot was not reading the lanes and not turning on. It would...

    Still have not had an update pushed to my car (on 2019.12.1.2)

    So I picked up my M3AWD about a week ago. It came with 2019.12.1.2 however I still have not had the option to update to any of the newer releases. I will concede I don't have access to WIFI in my garage, however I have been driving around with it connected to my phone as a mobile hotspot in...

    Model 3 horn sensitivity

    So this may sound nitpicky but I think it's a legitimate safety issue. I discovered earlier today, at a very inopportune time that the horn on my model 3 does not respond to a light tap, like every other vehicle I've ever had. I think most of us use light taps on the horn to warn fellow drivers...

    Tips for getting used to single peddle driving/regenerative braking

    So i've put about a 100 miles on my AWD M3 so far, and I think i'm having a bit more trouble than most getting used to regenerative braking. One thing that bugs me is I feel that it does not kick in consistently and as a result, I have trouble throttling my turns. Sometimes I can do them...

    How does autopilot compare to other similar driver assist features?

    I'm a recent owner of a Model 3. I did not opt for the full autonomous option because from what I've read, NOAP is still a bit rough around the edges and I only intend to keep the car for 3 years. That being said I've been ridiculously impressed by autopilot. My only point of comparison is the...

    Nema 14-50 charge speed much lower than expected

    I recently picked up a Dual motor M3, with the intention to charge in my building's garage on a Nema 14-50 plug they installed for me. I am getting a charge rate of a about 15miles/hour at 32 amps. Is this normal? I thought A nema 14-50 connection was supposed to provide yoou with about 30 miles...

    Second thoughts?

    So I'm supposed to take delivery of a model 3 next week and I'm white confident that the car itself is amazing but, I'm getting g second thoughts regarding potential quality control issues and the ability of Tesla customer service to address them in a satisfactory manner. I guess things like...

    Am I an idiot for going for a lease?

    So I could use a little advice here. I just pulled the trigger on a Model 3 AWD with autopilot. However, I'm hesitating making my decision regarding how to pay for it, i.e. finance vs lease. I know the general opinion is that the Tesla lease doesn't offer great terms however my concerns are as...
