    CA Santa Clara: Model 3 19” Sport wheels with tires and sensors $825

    Hi Smmmurf, Tried to DM but the feature seems broken on iOS safari. I live in SC county and am interested. Could you please DM photos? Also, curious how you felt the ride changed after switching to the 18s. I love the look of the 19s, but ride quality and NVH is important as well. Thanks!

    I think I'm going to turn OFF cabin overheat protection

    Agreed! I wish there were an option to only kick in at more extreme temps, i.e. to prevent damage. In coastal CA we rarely have days above the mid 80s, and I really don’t want an efficiency / electricity usage hit to keep the car at 105 all day. Maybe an option to start at higher temperatures...

    Model 3 crazy vampire drain

    FYI. Had low vampire drain until 2018.28.5. I’m now seeing 5 miles lost overnight in cool weather, and more than that if parked outside during the day. At this rate, my vampire loss is nearly half of my energy consumption. Love the car, but not thrilled. Hopefully they will release updates to...

    Model 3 refuses to wake up via app

    Same here. Approximately an hour after the latest drive/door open event, the car simply will not wake up before the app times out and reports an error. On 28.5 and iOS.

    more fun with the phone "key"

    I wonder if something regressed with 2018.2x.x. Until a few days ago, I had 100 percent easy success with phone as key (iphone 6s). In the past few days since updating, have had my first entry fail, two auth to start/drive fails, and am seeing a delay between entry and being able to...

    Charging on NEMA 5-20 at 7mph!

    Thanks everyone for the replies + interesting details about efficiency etc. Echoing jdcollins5's comment, people have different situations and should decide according to their needs & priorities. Some additional details in my case that led me to be happy with this decision: * Free charging at...

    Increased performance on 28.x?

    I almost started a thread with the same question... That's a YES for me. Drive on chill most of the time where I didn't notice anything, but yesterday and today on "standard" there was a lot more power. It felt like we were on the edge of traction around 20-30mph. Could be placebo or perhaps a...

    Key Card Entry or Phone App?

    With an iPhone 6S, I'm finding the app to be totally usable. Before delivery I was convinced I'd want a fob or use the card-key, but the app has been totally stable for me for keyless entry & authentication to drive. The main downside of the app is that for other functions such as monitoring...

    Charging on NEMA 5-20 at 7mph!

    Hi TMC, TLDR: Charging now starts at 6mph and a reaches a steady 7mph on NEMA 5-20! Details, AKA why would anyone do this instead of a 14-50? * I don't drive much -- approx 150mi/week * It should be slightly more efficient (about 1/4 less time charging == less charger overhead) * On a...

    Review of RWD M3 and Delivery today in Fremont

    After reading and learning a ton from this forum, I told myself I'd write a review regardless of how today's delivery went. I.e. I wanted to de-bias my review and not only write one if something bad happened. Delivery TLDR: Delivery went well, with a couple minor items, but was easy and fun...
