    You probably don't need fast charge speed at home

    I agree, many people don't need high amperage charging. Due to a lack of juice coming into the house (100A service that's essentially already maxed out), I chose to add a 20A 240V circuit so I can charge at 16A while not overloading my panel. It is serving my needs well (1k miles per month...

    CHAdeMO update?

    Although still showing in the diagram, the parts catalog no longer lists the CHAdeMO adapter in the table.

    Any Model 3 RWD 18" driver willing to head to the Springfield MO area for data gathering vs. an AWD?

    I would offer (here in SGF myself), but have 19" wheels so that wouldn't work.

    LTE Connection Issues

    I've had mine drop a few times; each time the fix was to reboot using the two school wheels and brake (holding all three down at the same time). I opened a ticket with Tesla to make them aware, but they haven't responded with a fix yet. I notice the latest update hasn't had the issue as much.

    No garage, smart options for charging

    My recommendation at minimum would be to install a NEMA 14-50 on the house as close as you can to the vehicle so you can use the mobile connector and get a quality charge in reasonable time. However, leaving that mobile connector outside kind of sucks, so the best option would be to essentially...

    Anyone have a perfect delivery?

    There were no issues I could find on the car at delivery, very happy with the experience. VIN 176xx. However, I did have a small metal piece fall off of the charging port door when I got home. I superglued it back into place and followed up with an email to service, who readily admitted it's...

    Model 3 lacking in Fit and Finish in Trunk

    My current car, an Acura TSX, was originally in the $30k+ range when new and I consider it considerably less finished than the Model 3 photo posted here. Other cars in the price range look similar. This really isn't a concern in my book.

    Anyone tested S/X CHAdeMO Adapter on Model 3

    Glad to hear it works. I'll need it when visiting St. Louis to avoid some out of the way trips to Superchargers.

    Trade-In Help?

    If I understood correctly, Tesla may use vroom.com to handle non-Tesla trade-ins behind the scenes. You might check with them directly to get an idea. CarMax would be another safe bet.

    What will you name your Model 3?

    Joules. I have custom plates waiting to be picked up at the DMV. Since "Joules" was taken, I decided on "Joul3s" which is pretty appropriate for Model 3 anyway. :-) All of our family car names are female. My partner's Honda Accord Hybrid is named LaFawnDuh, after the character in Napoleon...

    Just ordered my Tesla HPWC!

    I decided to install one of the Chargepoint Home units last weekend, however, it is the 16 amp model. I would have loved to put a 32 amp model or an HPWC in, but the house is only served by a 100 amp circuit with the service lines underground (requiring the front yard to be dug up, along with...

    Model ☰ License Plate Ideas?

    I'm waiting on a new plate to come in. My Model 3 will be called Joules, so the plate will be JOUL3S. It will have to go on my Acura until the Tesla comes in though.

    Wiki Model 3 delivery estimator

    Missouri here, 3/31 online reservation holder within a minute or so after they opened for business (pre-reveal), not a previous customer - RWD long range shows delivery in Dec-Feb; dual-motor shows Oct-Dec. I originally was going to wait for dual motors, but with the timing change and tax...
