    Best SSD for TeslaCam?

    I think the glovebox port is a more recent addition (compared to some of the cars people have been discussing) and that is why it wasn’t mentioned. I would also prefer the glovebox as hidden and locked. i don’t have a drive yet, and have a question. In a MUSIC folder or partition, can you then...

    Vendor 3M Reimagines Tesla Exteriors as TMC’s Official Films Partner

    After several years, wrapping the car will make it feel like it is new or at least different, so hardly a waste, unless it peeled off very quickly. I tend to keep cars a long time, so being able to change the color appeals to me.

    Well, that is what I feared. Okay, maybe in a few years, more likely aft the car is paid off.

    So what would it cost (approximately) to do a color wrap of my model 3?

    Ford Announces Crate Motor for EV Conversions

    Definitely just the motor, but this is pretty cool! I mean, it looks good for Ford and they don’t have to deal with the speed controllers, batteries, etc. for a builder/maker/tinkerer, it’s a nice start to electrifying a vehicle. Peo have been making electric cars for decades, but using forklift...

    Aftermarket yoke steering wheel in Model 3

    I am surprised no one has mentioned the most compelling reason (perhaps the only reason, at all) to install the yoke to replace a stock steering wheel. The weight! Obviously, the yoke is lighter, but by how much? Anyone weigh them to compare? I am hoping to get some decent additional range out...

    2021: Low Frequency Vibration

    We haven’t had a single issue with our M3, so far at least! I’ve also had good luck with VWs and BMWs, an Isuzu and bad luck with a Mini Copper S and a Subaru Forester. I think it is just luck, driving conditions and so many small random factors in many cases. Sorry you have had bad luck With...

    Blog NHTSA Wants to Talk to Tesla About Half-Circle Steering Wheel

    I remember this same argument... “What? A horseless carriage? How will anyone ride it? Everyone knows you need reins if you expect to maintain control!” If the CT is self driving, it will make little difference. If not, it can have some kind of proportional control to make it perform.

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

    Well, at the quarterly financial report Elon said they were in production on the Model S now and would start delivering in February. I think if this were set in “the Fall” or “Q4” I would be dubious. That close? I’d say they will be delivering and they are okay with the steering yoke. Also, for...

    Yes, I love the look of it and expect it to be proportional, as mentioned above. I would love to try this out!

    Buying used Tesla from dealer free FSD

    When I was looking, prior to getting a model 3, the used inventory rep told me that they had added FSD to all of the inventory as an incentive to boost sakes at the end of the year. I looked again out of curiosity and saw that all the used cars that could have it, did. Maybe this will be the...

    How effective is active noise cancelling in a car?

    Very well! Most of the extraneous noise in a car is fairly constant; wind noise and the sound of the tires on the road are exactly the kinds of noise a noise canceling system is perfect at reducing or eliminating.

    Did you PPF your new Tesla?

    We got the white, so it won’t seem as bad, but I am convinced the front needs some protection. Now after seeing that pic, lppks like the rocker panels do too! I hate that feeling when you are driving along and hit a patch of gravel or sand and hear thousands of hits... it seems like they go...

    Vendor M14x1.5 grade 5 titanium lug nuts set of 20 that fit Tesla model S 3 X Y

    Titanium is is far stronger, pound-for-pound. So High grade stainless steel would be stronger, but weigh about twice as much. The specifics depend on whether the Titanium is an alloy or pure metal, and the metal you are comparing it with. The weight savings is the big benefit here since any...

    Did you PPF your new Tesla?

    Ok, so is “stealth” what people are calling the flat finish? That looks amazing. I remember when BMW started making cars with the “frozen” paint finish, which was more like frosted glass than f;at, but I really liked it. My wife and I discussed getting black instead of white for our m3. The...

    Did you PPF your new Tesla?

    Yes, Tesla paint is not great, but I find it to be average, not the worst. I plan to do the front as soon as I can, because I have done it on another daily driver and saw what a huge difference it makes. It is also about pride of ownership. If you plan to sell the car in a few years, maybe you...

    How do we “tinker” with our Teslas?

    Well, for example, on my Mini Cooper, I found a bank of switches from the European release that had an extra switch for the rear fog light, changed exhaust, springs and shocks, added upper stress bars, beefier sway bars, larger cold air intake, added a shelf for storage under the steering wheel...

    Looking for a Gen 3 wall connector

    Did they make a level 3 with the signature on it? Also, I love the “face” of the supercharger! Is that a vac formed piece? Did you make it? Also, what is the box on the left? Cool stuff.

    I think that means the bottle is leaking... Awesome! Can you please post a picture of this? Also, do you mind sharing what it cost to get made? I have always died K&N filters, but can’t seem to find the right size! Same for Bosch platinum plugs.

    2018 M3 LR AWD with FSD

    Maybe just sitting on it a while longer will help, as FSD gets more developed, it will certainly add to the attractiveness and value of your car. None of my business, but have you looked tat trading it in to Tesla (or elsewhere?) That might help you get more of the ballpark (“lowballpark”?)...

    FS: OEM 2020 Model 3 Sport Wheels no tires SoCal

    Yeah, I noticed the same thing, but didn’t know if it had to do with being a new member or something. Is there a deluxe version of this site that is paid or something? Tough to not have a mailbox here (or dm or pm, whatever).

    Vendor M14x1.5 grade 5 titanium lug nuts set of 20 that fit Tesla model S 3 X Y

    I love titanium, but can rarely afford it. Do these fit factory wheels? I know people get lug nuts in titanium for Porsches, I guess time will tell if Teslas get to the same level accessorizing. I would think so, since there are far fewer “things” to modify/change on these, compared to ICE cars.

    I need to know how to get parts to repair my model 3

    Just f.y.I. When I have had cars repaired in the past (non Tesla) waiting on parts has always been the longest part of the job. I remember having to wait so long once that the rental car from insurance ran out! I was able to get it extended, but still, must have been a month, at least. You...

    How do we “tinker” with our Teslas?

    The ball upgrade is great, have you noticed an increase in road noise? For the suspension stuff, since my wife also drives the m3, I know she would be miserable with the stuff I would like (better handling, stiffer ride)

    How do we “tinker” with our Teslas?

    Nice. I am not sure about how to go about upgrading the sound system.... As for the super capacitors, I had the same thought, hitting the motors with a timed burst over over-voltage. I was thinking it would work like a nitrous burst.
