    The savings from daily driving a Cheapo car vs new Model 3 devaluation

    So, I guess this is PART 2 of the other popular thread I wrote about 6 months ago. Link here: The savings from giving up your Tesla... In this new predicament, I wanted to weigh out what would be better: Daily driving my Brand New Tesla Model 3 OR buying a Cheapo old car for this specific...

    Any tips on cleaning the gray interior liner?

    I just got my Model 3 back from the shop, and there was black residue of some sort on the liner. It looked like electrical tape residue. I didn't know what it was, so I stupidly tried to clean it with a towel, and I got most of it off. But there's still some light spots and I'm afraid to use...

    Bad Service Center Experience

    This is the second time I've had to deal with my local Service Center (Austin, TX), and it's 0 for 2 now. I just bought a brand new Model 3, about 2 months ago (this is my 4th Tesla). and I had to contact them once for a weird Vibration/Buzzing that was occurring under the front console. I came...

    Where is the vibration from Loud Music coming from/is it worth looking into fixing?

    After "blasting" some music, I noticed a little, normal, "you're-playing-music-too-loud" vibration, coming from the Passenger door-area. I used to do some dampening a long time ago, for cars I had outfitted with a big woofer and such. But this is a brand new car, and I don't want to mess with it...

    Does anyone know how/if you can have the "Charging Complete" screen not come up automatically after entering car?

    I know the title is a little screwed up. Basically, every time I get in my Model 3 (2022), in the mornings, after having charged overnight, the "Charging" screen on the menu automatically comes on and stays on, regardless of whether I drive out, or turn on the radio, or back up. There's no...

    Strange Vibration after getting in, before Pressing Brake Pedal - anyone else experience this?

    Hello, So today I had something VERY strange happen. I've owned 4 Teslas - 2 Model S's and 2 Model 3's - and I have NEVER heard anything close to what I heard today. I just bought a brand new Model 3, about 3 weeks ago. It has only 450 miles. Standard. It has been a little cold where I live...

    The "savings" from giving up your Tesla (under Loan) for a Cheap, old car, paid off

    So, I bought a brand new '19 (July Build) Model 3, Standard Plus, Autopilot, White on White. LOVED the car. However, I got it under a Car Loan. The total of the Monthly Payment, including Insurance, was $663.00. So, after a year and a half of owning it, I thought my lack of driving and lack of...

    2019 Model 3 SR+, AP, 5400 miles - $$??

    Hi. I'm considering selling my Model 3. But I am not sure what a fair asking price is. Yes, I have looked around, but the selling prices vary too much, on too many factors. I've noticed that the more informed the website is (like this one, or other Tesla club sites), the Lower the price will be...

    Anyone interested in buying my reservation?

    So I stood in line for about 2 1/2 hours, while I ditched work, to reserve my Model 3. Unfortunately, that was back when I actually had a good income and hadn't gotten screwed over by 3people in my life that would ultimately put me in the worst economic time of my life, as a single parent of...

    Thinking of getting these these wheels. Thoughts?

    I'm thinking about getting these to replace my 19". I used to be a BMW guy, so, these would be an homage, and a dream to get these legendary wheels for my Tesla. Now, I would NOT consider myself a connoisseur on wheels, but I believe, from what I've researched, that these will fit fine in the...

    HPWC Professional Installation - anyone get it?

    Has anyone installed the HPWC professionally? I'm buying one, and I'm pretty sure I can install it myself, saving hundreds of dollars. I installed, successfully, the Nema 14-50 box in my garage, with no issues at all. But the HPWC doesn't seem as simple as the 14-50. I just don't want to pay...

    Dual Color (body and roof)....Tacky or Cool?

    I did this to one of my old BMWs, and it looked awesome. Pretty much giving, for example, my Black Tesla (no Pano) a Silver paint job, and leave the top black. It looks great on other cars, but would this be tacky because it would be like "pretending" you have a Pano roof?? -Ronnie

    DIY: iPhone to Micro USB cable swap.

    So, I asked about this a couple of weeks ago, about swapping the iphone cable to a Micro USB since ( I have some sense) and don't own an iphone. Nobody had a straight answer, so, I took it upon myself to just take a chance and meddle with it. The process is surprisingly easy and quick. HOWEVER...

    Swapping Center Console for Micro USB plug instead of Iphone one.

    Is this something I can do easily and cheap?? Or do I really need to buy the console and sell mine?? If so, anyone have the Android one, and wants to trade, let me know. I haven't tried poking around and meddling with it, but it looks like a fairly simple project. Thoughts??
