    2022 Tesla 3 rwd 0 miles vs. 2019 tesla 3 awd, FSD, acceleration boost with 37k miles? Practically same price. Thoughts?

    Depends do you like FSD? I could care less if mine had it it's pretty much a toy/useless. Autopilot is enough for my needs and it's included on every tesla. I do have boost. It's not needed but I like the extra speed. you can always add boost for $2k and they have enhanced auto pilot available...

    No sound from front door speakers, rear speakers and subwoofer

    You could install an audio recording app on your phone or some other device to capture what it sounds like when it's happening. Then when you book the appointment you can demonstrate what you're hearing.

    Gas tax alternative(s) for EVs (US)

    Pretty much to work it's all turnpike. The bottom line is I'm not saving any money swapping to a Tesla. The money I spent on upgrading and charging and difference from my gas vehicle would take 10+ years to break even. I did it because I like the car and want to support the company doing...

    Gas tax alternative(s) for EVs (US)

    Hopefully not until the prices of EV's come down. We pay so much more for the EV so it's really not fair yet until the markets are equal. And I don't know about anyone else but I pay $8 in tolls per day to drive on the roads so isn't that money for the road I'm driving on? They don't pay toll...

    Tesla Owners' Everyday Navigation Use

    It's funny I was just thinking about this during a call. I was talking to my wife on the phone while I was driving in an unfamiliar area with Nav on. I don't like that it doesn't announce turn by turn while on the phone. I still need it sometimes. I saw a speaker muted in the nav options and...

    Wall connector tripping circuit breaker

    Yes you are correct 6awg romex which is what you see when it's incorrect. Wasn't really giving specifics more so telling him it's easy to research himself. It's not that difficult. We have zero info on the setup other than a 60 amp breaker. You have to admit though there's a ton of installs on...

    Wall connector tripping circuit breaker

    Well I mean it doesn't hurt to look at the connections in to the wall connector maybe they're obviously loose or incorrectly installed with Romex like a lot of other installs on the forum. It's not rocket science and you can find plenty of correct information on the internet to get you up to...

    Tesla Owners' Everyday Climate Control Use

    I leave it on all the time. I press hold whenever it's hot and Im in the grocery store. I uses very little energy to maintain the temp.

    Tesla Owners' Everyday Navigation Use

    If you're doing google maps on your phone you can select the share option and send it to your tesla app. I'm almost positive that it saves the customization you've done and not just the final destination. I have a Samsung so not sure about apple maps.

    Tesla Owners' Everyday Navigation Use

    I never used it on cars but I swipe down now everyday so it sets work and then sets home. The traffic has helped me a couple times on my 100 mile daily commute and routed me differently if there's trouble ahead. It's not perfect I was stuck in construction recently but I have avoided some messy...

    Sensitivity of “auto” wipers

    No recall. They probably just mean that they are not up to the task on auto sometimes and should be recalled and fixed. A simple software fix with a sensitivity option would probably be all they need. That way people could adjust the sensitivity like every other car made today with auto wipers...

    How Some Tesla Owners Break The Law to "Stop ICE-ing"

    The fun factor would be worth it for me. I agree though get the owner or police to do something. I bet we'd be instantly towed if we blocked all of the gas pumps.

    Vendor BASENOR Custom Tesla Sunshade

    I just received my sunshade. I do like the front its a nice fit and easy to install. But I feel like the rear on my 2022 Model 3 is a little ghetto. I know it was probably done with only half of the window for visibility in mind but having a visible couple inch gap where the shade ends and...

    How Some Tesla Owners Break The Law to "Stop ICE-ing"

    Time to do some demo rides at supercharger events Tesla! Show the public just how much fun they are.

    How Some Tesla Owners Break The Law to "Stop ICE-ing"

    We are a very angry culture. Anyone who is different or has a different opinion must be stopped at all cost. I slip in to that mindset myself and have to force myself to keep an open mind. The fun solution to the problem above would be to buy NEW! Tesla Extension Cord – EVSE Adapters And just...

    Dash Cam Not Working Check USB

    Awesome hope it sorts it out. I hated not having the dashcam it seems like a must have feature now that I've been spoiled driving with it.
  17. OliverM3

    Acceleration Boost vs Third Party Hacks

    Yeah I'm waiting for that it was rumored to come with boosted cars in the future. That would be a nice feature so you don't have to unplug wheel sensors to get traction control to disable.
  18. OliverM3

    Dash Cam Not Working Check USB

    Yeah 2022.16's fix the issue so it's just software you'll be good when you finally get them. It took forever for me to finally get the updates but now i'm good.
  19. OliverM3

    Dash Cam Not Working Check USB

    It's probably not the drive temp just you happen to be checking it now that you're having a prorblem. Sometimes it takes a bunch of times to get it to come back. As for wifi just reboot the car. I've been good since 2022.16.1.1 but I've received two more updates since and I'm on 2022.16.2 now...
  20. OliverM3

    Dash Cam Not Working Check USB

    yeah none here coming up on two weeks on 2022.16.2 no usb or trunk issues.

    Tesla 2022 Model S and EVgo Charging

    I thought there were some 2021 3/Y's that they removed the module for a bit due to a the chip shortage? I have a 2022 3 but it was made in 2021 so I was happy that it was supported on mine.
  22. OliverM3

    Tesla 2022 Model S and EVgo Charging

    CCS is better than CHADeMo but the adapter is not in the US yet. A bunch of us ordered it from a Korean shipper. Everyone had flawless service and they arrived in about 10 days Get your Tesla's CCS1 Adapter From Korea! Not familiar with the 2022 S but some models/runs didn't have compatibility...

    Neighbor had some questions about my Model 3

    The taking forever to charge has to be the funniest thing. Who charges? I plug it in and it's full everyday. It must suck having to stop for gas all the time during rush hour. Overall I think people are coming around I know more and more people buying them. Renters across the street had a...

    Supply Chain Issues

    If it makes anyone feel better about delays. I'm really surprised at the impact with more than just Tesla. A friend of mine got hit with his EV6 in March and he still does not have his car back due to parts shortages. I honestly had no idea that it's affecting big car manufacturers to this...

    Dash Cam Not Working Check USB

    I've seen that before sometimes it lags on the check. As for the red x I've been good for two weeks or so with 16.2.1 and 16.2.2

    Mismanaged - The Problem With Government-Funded EV Chargers (TMC Podcast Clip)

    Yeah I think it can be done but they need incentives to do it.
  27. OliverM3

    The thing I thought I’d like the most about my Model 3 is the thing I like the least

    I do prefer to drive myself but when I do use auto pilot I find it better in some aspects and worse in others. For me honestly I don't care if I wanted someone else to drive I wouldn't be in my car. I think it handles the lane very well but has to much power for a smooth follow distance. Putting...
  28. OliverM3

    Neighbor had some questions about my Model 3

    Yeah its not a 200mph car but don't we all drive the speed limit? 🤣 Honestly the 1/4 mile times are impressive as well as the 0-60. I remember as a kid building cars and cars this fast required a roll cage when they broke in to 11's.

    USB music button not showing up

    Installing 16.1.2 as we speak that came quickly after .1 wonder what was wrong with the last one?

    Mismanaged - The Problem With Government-Funded EV Chargers (TMC Podcast Clip)

    I think the hard sell is apartments. EV's make zero sense if you can't charge at home. And I bet more people rent then live in a home where they can charge. Or even a condo. Someone needs to help with charging infrastructure and not just superchargers no one wants to stop at those either. No...

    Dash Cam Not Working Check USB

    That sucks I remember seeing a post with a SA comment saying it was fixed in .16
  32. OliverM3

    2022.16.1.1

    No issues so far for me with the update usb is good so far and so is the trunk stopping halfway up. Fingers crossed. But I do like the new look much easier to read/see when glancing over.
  33. OliverM3

    Neighbor had some questions about my Model 3

    Funny yesterday my neighbor was walking his dogs by my house when I got home and was asking some question about charging, battery etc. Then he ask if it's ok on the highway if it's able to merge/accelerate? Haha I just just laughed and said it's supercar fast my model isn't even the fastest and...

    Water Leak [ingress during car wash]

    How's the frunk does it get in yours?
  35. OliverM3

    Dash Cam Not Working Check USB

    So far I've been good on 2022.16.1.1 I like the look of it too they made everything bigger so it's easier to glance over to the screen
  36. OliverM3

    Water Leak [ingress during car wash]

    no leak that I've noticed except when I go to a touchless the frunk gets some water with the high pressure. nothing inside the car though.

    Mobile Connector Alternatives

    Can you not get the wall connector for home? I do like the flexibility of the Tesla mobile connector for the road and being able to buy the adapter bundle vs a preselected connector on the 3rd party ones. Not sure if any are modular like the Tesla one. I would probably wait and get the Tesla...
  38. OliverM3

    Mobile Connector no longer included with new cars [posted 04/16/2022 - Tesla confirms adapter included with cars ordered before 04/17/22]

    Depends when you ordered it. If you ordered your Tesla after April 17th, then your vehicle will not include the mobile connector at delivery. Thought they extended that though.
  39. OliverM3

    USB music button not showing up

    Yeah there was/is a known bug with the way an update mounts the drive. it was supposed to be fixed in 2022.16.1.1 I just received it the other day so we'll see if it fixes the usb mounting issue. I did see one post that it did not I'm hoping that was incorrect since I saw SA posts that's it's...

    Rock chip, is this worth it to fix

    Yeah I was surprised and really easy to use.
  41. OliverM3

    Rock chip, is this worth it to fix

    Not that this will help you with yours well maybe the amazon kit will. but something new for me I had a huge rock come up from the oncoming lane and hit my new M3LR I even ducked when saw it coming. Safelight said they couldn't fix it so I picked up some cerium oxide. It worked really really...
  42. OliverM3

    Dash Cam Not Working Check USB

    Finally version 2022.16.1.1 downloaded tonight. This is the version that's supposed to fix the trunk stopping and sentry mode issues with the red X and not recording. Fingers crossed they're both fixed. I'm tired of unplugging the drive once or twice every morning to get it going again.
  43. OliverM3

    Bad delivery experience

    I just drive it it's not worth any more when I trade it in. I had ppf on the last car and it was still blue book on the trade so honestly I don't really care. Dive it have fun the next guy can reshoot the bumper.
  44. OliverM3

    Charging 101 question

    I agree what's was stated but keeping things in the middle is really the best for the health of the battery. No need to charge to 90% daily if you only drive 100 miles per day. I do drive 100 miles per day and I charge to 70% it gets me 250miles and I don't go to low and I don't charge the...
  45. OliverM3

    No sound from front door speakers, rear speakers and subwoofer

    me? I base it on unplugging a sub. components are not that sensitive. And if the issue was there before it was even unplugged during troubleshooting how did it cause the issue? Did unplugging it go back in time and cause the original issue? Yeah I call BS people make up *sugar* all the time.
  46. OliverM3

    Teslas are being delivered too fast for Supercharger Growth

    Only one way to get them Tesla CCS Combo 1 Adapter & CHAdeMO Adapter Lots of threads of us buying them from Korea since they're not released in the US yet.

    My way of lifting my Model 3… (custom lifting rig)

    There are a couple designs around. I welded up some angle iron to make the brackets the original design was from a corvette forum that I copied. It looks like there are much better options then what I followed. I may need to revise my design. https://www.facebook.com/quickjackwheelkits/

    Installing Wall Connector is better than NEMA 14-50

    It does go through a j1772 and nope It goes to 48amps. You can actually go higher with some weird 70+ amp breaker and wiring but the gain wasn't worth it to me 48 is fine. I went with the chargepoint incase my wife ever wanted an ev or people with ev's come over. Seemed more flexible to stay on...
  49. OliverM3

    Installing Wall Connector is better than NEMA 14-50

    You know you don't need to buy a tesla wall connector to charge a tesla. My chargepoint works great at 48 amps that's enough flexibility without a 14-50 plug.

    No option to undo save location for auto mirror folding

    you just have to go to the exact location where they fold then stop and hit the button to unset it. Would be nice if there was a clear all but I guess you could wipe all of your settings if you really had too.
