    Do you occasionally charge to 90%?

    Thanks guys. I live in the mild Pacific NW and garage my car, so I’m feeling ok about charging to 90% occasionally, even in the summer. Big help. Thanks again.

    Do you occasionally charge to 90%?

    Hi everyone, I set my charging max to 80% like a lot of people do, but I’m wondering how many of you crank it up to 90% or even 100% for the occasional longer trip. Has there been any data that talks about this being potentially harmful to the battery?

    Rear quater panel accident

    I have a rear passenger side panel scrape with some minor denting. Would like to know a ballpark number of what to expect when taking estimates. Has anyone had one repaired recently?

    Problems after upgrading new iPhone13

    OK, I think I finally figured it out. I needed to sign out and back in again to the app so it would recognize the new phone key.

    Problems after upgrading new iPhone13

    Hi everyone. My key app had performing flawlessly with my older cell phone, but after recently upgrading to my new iPhone13, the car is requiring my key card to start. I successfully got the Tesla's Bluetooth to find my new iPhone and I deleted the previous phone. It lets me enter the car and...

    Long term airport parking

    Here's a follow up dumb question. I'm parking my new Tesla at the airport for the first time next weekend. How do I make sure everything is turned OFF? Do I just go through the app and make sure climate is set to OFF, Sentry OFF, etc. Is there something I might be missing? I'm only going to be...

    Torn on which one to get

    I went with the performance over the LR. My reasoning in the end was that if the day comes when I *need* the extra handful of miles that the LR provides, I've chosen the wrong car to begin with. The off the line performance of my M3P is something I benefit from everyday. The extra miles on the...

    I wish the Model 3 had the new Model S steering wheel

    I love the Model S as a whole, but I'm not a fan of the steering wheel at all. It looks aftermarket weird to me. The steering wheel on my new M3P is fantastic and fits the car perfectly.

    Exterior detailing question

    Hi everyone. I just took delivery of my new M3P (Red) last week, and I'm working on my detail protocol for her. I'm scheduled to have PPF installed on July 15th, so I won't be driving her much in advance of that. It's torturous looking at her in my garage without being able to drive her, but...

    Delivery day is tomorrow.

    Picking up my new M3P tomorrow here in the Seattle area, and of course we're expecting record high temps in the 100s this weekend, which will no doubt shorten my delivery inspection. As far as paperwork goes, do I need to bring anything other than my drivers license and a copy of the new...

    Just got my 14-50 plug installed

    Someone mentioned earlier that if you want the charger to hang downward, the grounded (round) hole of the plug needs to be orientated at the top. Is that confirmed? If so, I'll need to reposition the plug. Thanks!!

    Mobile app question

    I have a silly question about the mobile app. I'm scheduled to take delivery of my new M3P this weekend (yay!), but right now, my mobile app is only displaying (2) buttons when I open it. Watch Video Guide & Get Support. Will this automatically change to my cars settings when I take delivery...

    Just got my 14-50 plug installed

    Well, my new M3P hasn't been delivered yet, but at least I have a fancy new 14-50 plug to look at. :) Question. I haven't seen what the factory supplied Tesla cable looks like. I assume I'm going to need some sort of adapter for it. If so, which one should I get? Thanks!!

    Autailers Floor Mats

    Did you see what I mean though? There doesn't appear to be an 8 or 9 piece option for the 2021 Model 3 performance. I wonder if the 2020 and 2021 have the same rear trunk specs? If so, I could just order the rear trunk mats for the 2020.

    Thanks, but the Model 3 performance is the car I need them for.

    Autailers Floor Mats

    Trying to order the autotailer mats, but the picture of the trunk mat on their website is confusing. I want to make sure I'm ordering the the trunk mat that allows for access to the storage compartment underneath. Is THIS the correct part? If you look at the trunk piece, it appears to be...

    Autailers Floor Mats

    Really liking these mats, but I ordered the white seats. Can't decide if I should get the red or black piping. Exterior color is Red. Hmmmm????
  21. B

    Autailers Floor Mats

    That's an excellent point. I'm a golfer, and I plan to store my golf accessories in the trunk storage (shoes, balls, gloves, etc.). Having easy access to that would be ideal.

    Autailers Floor Mats

    I'm interested in these mats, but I live in Seattle where we obviously get a lot of rain which leads to dirty shoes. I've typically used weathertech floor liners. They're indestructible, but the styling is bland. I'll still probably opt for those for the frunk and trunk. I really like the...

    Tesla white seats strange pattern on seat?

    If that's the case, yes, I've seen videos on youtube where those stretch lines can be dramatically reduced by using cleaner.

    Tesla white seats strange pattern on seat?

    Are you referencing what looks like a large shadowed area? If so, there's no way I would accept that response from Tesla. Keep demanding action from them.

    How much PPF did you get?

    Yea, I leaned in that direction a long time myself. There really isn't a wrong answer. For me, I know myself. Once I settle into a car, I tend to keep them for at least 5-7 years, and I'm too lazy to have my 4 year old car wrapped. I have 15 year old twin boys, so after that timeframe, the car...

    How much PPF did you get?

    Would you get the rocker panels done in addition to the other areas that I listed, or would you substitute for one of them?

    How much PPF did you get?

    Damn, that's a big number, but you won't regret getting it. Everybody's different when it comes to this stuff. Many, if not most people don't care about dings at all. I care , but not as much about the side doors, roof, and rear bumper. Not sure why, but they never seem to take as much of a...

    How much PPF did you get?

    For those of you who opted to get PPF installed, I'm curious how much of your Model 3 that you opted to protect? I take delivery in 2-4 weeks, and I'm looking at having the following surfaces done. This will run me about $1,300. Full Hood Front Bumper Headlights Partial fenders Side view...

    What cars are more fun to drive than a M3P?

    A lot of good responses here. What's reassuring for this soon to be M3P owner is that I'm not seeing a lot of (or any) responses that list competing 4-door sedan/daily driver type cars as being more fun to drive. Maybe a WRX? Maybe a high end 3 or 5 series, or Benz AMG, or Audi S4. Even then...

    I'll never be able to decide on a color

    White is also for sheep, which is exactly what you'll look like if you drive a Tesla in Seattle. One of the herd.

    What cars are more fun to drive than a M3P?

    That's a great picture of your car. Have you done any exterior mods to it? I've got a red M3P with white interior on order.

    I'll never be able to decide on a color

    I thought long and hard about selecting white and getting it wrapped, but the thought of having to get it re-wrapped in 3-4 years scared me out of it.

    What cars are more fun to drive than a M3P?

    I drove all of the comparable big-4 Euro makes (BMW, Audi, Benz, Volvo), and none of them felt better than the M3P. The interiors were all nice, and they all handled well, cornered great, but there was something about the M3P that (as my teen boys say) just hit different. The acceleration, the...

    What cars are more fun to drive than a M3P?

    Just for fun while I'm waiting for my new M3P to arrive, when you were car shopping, what other models (if any) were as fun to drive as the Tesla? For me, I liked the BMW 3 and 5 series, and I also loved the Ford Mustang Shelby.

    personal license plates

    Question for those of you who ordered personalized license plates. Did you request your plates while your car was being built, or did you do it after you took delivery of the vehicle? I'm looking to have plates added from my college alma mater. Thanks.

    Has anyone regretted the color the chose enough to try trading in shortly after purchasing?

    I agree, but on the other hand, other people can't fathom spending $60K+ on a new car.

    Headrest material peeling off

    That's not a problem with the fabric. Clearly the car is either possessed, or some type of reptilian creature has made a den out of the headrest.

    Is tesla still accepting referral codes?

    I just ordered my M3P yesterday, but I wasn't asked to provide a referral code. Does anyone know if the referral policy is still active, and if so, when/where I can enter it?

    Picking up M3 this weekend. Checklist?

    I agree with the sentiment that you don't want to over scrutinize the pre-delivery inspection, but it's also foolish to completely trust that everything is functioning as intended. Externally, walk around the car and make sure the panels are lined up and look symmetrical. You don't need to...

    Got blue ink on white seat

    This is a pretty amazing testimonial for the white seats.

    Has anyone regretted the color the chose enough to try trading in shortly after purchasing?

    I would strongly suggest thinking this over a bit more. All of the colors look really good when they're clean, so perhaps that's the mental adjustment needed here? If color preference is that important to you, maybe make it a focal point to keep the car washed and waxed at all times. That's what...

    Traded test drives with my brother-in-law's Porsche Boxster

    I don't disagree with you, and honestly, your comment is a compliment to Tesla. Look what it takes to "beat" a Model 3; a car and a technology that's in the fledging stages of development. The only cars that you hear mentioned as being more fun to drive are among the super elites of the...

    Traded test drives with my brother-in-law's Porsche Boxster

    "Best" is an incredibly subjective term when it comes to grading cars. I ordered the M3P mainly because of the "cool" factor that goes along with the performance perks. As far as emissions, going green, and saving the earth, I've gotta tell you, that didn't really cross my mind. Before you yell...

    Traded test drives with my brother-in-law's Porsche Boxster

    That's exactly right. I was on the fence for a long time between the 340i and the M3P. I'm going with the M3P because it's a fun, fast, futuristic car, but there are a lot of things that I liked better about the 340i. The beauty of competition is going to eventually drive Tesla to improve on...
