    FSD beta battery drain

    I was just searching for this since I noticed the same thing since getting the FSD Beta.. I seem to be "losing" more range. I think this may be related to the uploading of FSD Beta video and data when the car is idle. I think my car uploaded at least 20GB of data last night and this morning I...

    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    The Q3 2019 update letter (pdf: https://ir.tesla.com/static-files/47313d21-3cac-4f69-9497-d161bce15da4) has a "last modified" date of 10/23/19 (which was the day they were released) and a time of 1:51:43 PM, fwiw

    I have a brand new in box Signature HPWC for sale. I've never even opened the box, but if you absolutely need to see real pictures, that can be arranged. I'm in Fountain Valley, CA during regular work hours and live in Tustin, CA. I'd really prefer a local transaction, but if I cant find a...

    Battery discharge with Sentry mode vs without?

    I had sentry on for about 4 hours last night (4 events) and lost somewhere around 20 miles. It was around low 60s last night and about 50F this morning. So whatever "normal" loss associated with cold temps overnight is included in that figure since I just noticed the less-than-expected range...

    Looking to buy pre cut PPF, xpel rep on here?

    I found this guy in the Tesla Parts For Sale forum: Vendor - DIY Xpel ultimate plus or stealth precut kits But I thought I had seen another guy that used to post there offering the same precut kits.. so you'll probably have better look looking through that forum Tesla Parts for Sale

    Can someone with FSD help me out with a picture?

    For a car that has EAP (as opposed to "standard AP", which is included on new cars now), you're not going to be able to tell if it has FSD or not, since NoA and Summon are included with EAP as well. Best bet is to contact Tesla at their customer service number and explain the issue and ask if...

    Model 3 changes from Jan 2018 til now; buying new vs. pre-owned Jan 2018

    If I recall correctly, there was a cutoff date, sometime in mid December 2017, when they switched from a stiffer shock to softer shock. And yes, there were 2017 Model 3 owners who were able to get the shocks swapped for free. And just to add a few changes I can remember but havent seen...

    Lowered 1" with MPP Comfort Coilovers

    The Comfort coilover bodies are zinc plated though. Whether they are as corrosion resistant as the stainless bodies, no idea. But the zinc plating is there for corrosion resistance. I'd wager its a better combo than the stock painted strut and shock bodies though.

    Vendor Suma Blind Spot Side Mirrors

    I'm pretty sure the wiring you thought was for auto-dimming is for mirror heating and the "extra OEM wiring" you're referring to is for auto-dimming. So what to do with the "extra OEM wiring" is to not do anything. And then use the extra connector from Suma to connect the stock wiring to the new...

    "Checking for updates..."

    I noticed this yesterday (I'm still on 32.11) but after being on "Checking for updates" for a few seconds it refreshed to "Your software is up to date". I tried it again by closing the menu and going back to Software and it showed "Checking for updates".. but in the 1-2 minutes I watched it, it...

There are risks associated with this reset, mainly not letting the battery capacity drop below...

    You notice an out daytime "eyebrow" light in a fellow Model 3. Do you...

    The issue isnt an electrical one (at least not in my case and others I've read about). The DRL LED strip becomes physically "unseated" and shifts backwards (towards the cabin). When you look into the headlight, the DRL LED strip is still lit and seems fine from a close distance. But if you move...

    "Clinking" exterior sound?

    The sound you describe seems similar to whats being discussed in this thread, although you dont mention when it actually makes the sound or is it constantly making the sound? increasing with speed? or just an occasional "click" when accelerating or decelerating ?

    Did you use G2 also (kind of sounds like it with the 24 hr cure)? How did you stretch it out over 8 hours? Doesnt the epoxy/hardener mix harden up after a few hours? Did you mix small batches? I've been waiting to do mine when it cools down a bit weather-wise so the mixture doesnt harden up as...

    For you guys that already installed them, did you just re-route the stock wiring as suggested? I was planning on waiting for the extensions, but I may just try it this weekend without the extensions.

    Bird Doo Doo Boo Boo Finally Got Me!

    That happened to me about a week into ownership. First time I ever got one of those serious etching bird poops. I ended up polishing it out with a dual-action polisher and some compound. I had also watched some videos and read about using a heat gun, but that didnt work for me. But you may want...

    Tint the Front Glass Roof vs Tesla Roof Shade?

    I think the thing to think about with the glass roof is that when you feel heat, are you feeling the sun/solar energy passing through the glass? Or are you actually feeling heat radiating from the glass itself since the glass is physically hot from being radiated by the sun? If you believe you...

    Pregnant woman hit by MX (out of main)

    That shows you how un-newsworthy this lawsuit is.. and in our current climate, that's saying a lot! Filing a product liability lawsuit because your 2 year old jumped in the driver seat and made the car move forward is weak at best.

    Horribly Disappointed in Tesla Service (Alignment Issue)

    Any car can get out of alignment due to a variety of reasons. Was your car not properly aligned from the factory? Sure, its a definite possibility. Its also equally likely the car just went out of alignment if you tapped a curb or hit a pothole. I wouldnt say this is indicative of a Tesla being...

    14 Model 3 within 200 miles of me (middle of Orange County, CA).. intrestingly, 12 of the 14 are Red SR+ and 2 are Black AWD. Maybe the $2000 cost for Red paint stings a bit too much for those looking for an SR+

    Paint Damage - What would do this to a car?

    If you're looking for a racing stripe, just take it to a local car wrap/vinyl guy and have him put an offset stripe down the passenger side of the car.. two birds with one stone, eh :D

    Paint Damage - What would do this to a car?

    I'd take it to a detailer to see if they can remove it, most likely via a polisher and some more abrasive compound. I've had really bad water spots that I wasnt able to manually remove with regular cleaning products or even a cleaner wax.
