    FS: (4) 255/35/20 PS4S, local pickup in Los Angeles area, almost new

    Will they fit the OEM 3P rims? Do they have accoustic foam? Why did you switch them out? Are you keeping the rims and selling the tires? (sorry for the Q's, but others may find it relevant too)

    FS: (4) 255/35/20 PS4S, local pickup in Los Angeles area, almost new

    So these are 20 mm wider than OEM with the same profile, so wider and taller? Hard to tell from the pic but do they "poke" out from the wheel wells? Thnx Joel

    (San Diego) FS MOMO wheels ANZIO - BLACK 20in

    Are these lighter than stock? (I'm sure they must be) Will the OEM Michelin 4S's fit? I am in SD and may be interested.

    Way to force Download again? No Cams or GPS

    Just following up; I did the factory reset, and the "power off" protocols. Neither seemed to work. I have a SC on my way to work, I stopped by and they ended up taking the car in. I believe they forced a download, since my app is showing2021.40.6, which I didn't have before. It looks like...

    Way to force Download again? No Cams or GPS

    After latest software update, I lost my cameras and GPS. I have done the soft (2-button) reset, turned the car off, and done the factory reset. GPS now says my car is at the Telsa Factory in Palo Alto, no cams, no GPS. Car still drives. Earliest SC appt is 10 days away. Any suggestions...

    ALL Cameras Stopped Working

    I am having a similar issue with no GPS/Cameras etc. Car still drives, but no backup camera or AP. I did a "Factory Reset" and nothing seemed to happen, except now my car thinks its at the factory in Norcal. Service appt is 2 wks out, I'll try to remove the USB's and do the soft reset again...

    Wrong location on GPS and not able to do a soft reset, should I be concerned?

    Interesting, I have a similar situation. I noticed my GPS was incorrect the other day, and the car didn't adjust for night (it was in daylight mode. Backup cameras do not work. I did several "soft" resets. I just did a factory reset, and the GPS is showing the Norcal factory. Are we having...

    Sold my Tesla yesterday - No Sellers Remorse Yet

    Glad you found something more to your liking. You provided a lot of info to me when I jumped into Tesla (you should have told me to keep my Camaro, lol.) I definitely miss my ICE 2SS Camaro convertible and will be buying a droptop stickshift again when the microchips return. BEVs are...

    Valet with Phone Key Options?

    Thanks, I guess it's not a huge deal if they lose the card, I need to try to dig mine out.

    Valet with Phone Key Options?

    I searched and didn't find a clear answer. I use my phone as my key for my M3P. I have a lunch meeting tomorrow at a fancy restaurant with valet only. I hate using valets, and have never done so with my 3. What is my best option? Do I dig out my key card? (haven't used it since I bought my...

    WTB: Model 3 performance with white interior - midwest

    I have a Dec 2019 Full performance blue on black, but white covers(best of both worlds), less than 7k miles. I'm in California but could meet or ship. Honestly, I was hung up on finding a white interior as well, but the covers are a cheap fix, and I've been happy with them, FWIW.

    Model 3 Performance So Cal <7k Miles

    I had them remove FSD prior to purchase as I don't feel its "there" yet, and not worth the $$. The basic AP already steers, accelerates and brakes, which are the only features I'd use anyway. There are threads in the forum about Tesla removing FSD after private sales, but I have no personal...

    No, FSD was disabled when I bought it,. I did not want it. It has HW v.3 and can be reactivated.

    Deep Blue Metallic Help

    Hey Eddie: Thanks for your service. I have an M3P in blue, but bought white seat covers. Feel free to check it out if you haven't ordered yet, I'm in San Diego too, and about to list it for sale.

    Model 3 Performance 5k Miles So Cal $52.9k

    All PM's responded, I'm waffling on letting her go, so for now the price is firm. Full warranty no mods beyond ceramic tint and dash/center console, just rolled 5k miles on the way into the office today.

    Model 3 Performance 5k Miles So Cal $52.9k

    Took delivery 12/28/19, and has 5k miles on her. Covid ruined my business. Personally hand corrected and ceramic coated, hand washed weekly, Blue on Black but I put white seat covers just after purchase, so best of both worlds. The white covers are not high quality but they have worked for me...

    Reserved Model 3 LR. Talk me out of upgrading to a M3P!

    Everyone has personal reasons for buying what they did. I ordered an SR+, then changed to a Stealth, then bought the full 3P+. I usually end up with car-envy, and want the best. However. . . I miss my ice, a convertible, rowing gears, a V-8. I paid over $60k OTD for my Performance, and sold...

    What is FSD value in used car market?

    FWIW, when I bought my car (3P+), I specifically told them to Remove the FSD, as it saved me $7k. Never regretted it. Now, if it gets really dialed in the future, maybe I will, but right now, I don't think you'll see much ROI on FSD, YMMV.

    Minor Warp in Dash, Warranty?

    Yeah, I pushed it down, it comes right back up, I'm not sure exactly whats under there, so don't want to go banging on it, but there is a service center between home and work, I might swing by and ask, last time I did they wouldn't even speak to me without an appt, seemed ridiculous.

    Minor Warp in Dash, Warranty?

    Took Delivery Dec 28, 2019, and dumb me didn't notice the bump/warping in the dash trim, immediately in front of the steering wheel, and directly in line-of-sight. Now, of course, I see it all the time and it drives me nutz. Opinions on whether it would be covered under warranty?

    Missing my ICE car. . .

    Haha, would further destroy the WAF, wife let me race (motorcycles) to get me off the streets. by far the best bang for speed-bucks. I'm steering away from motos as I age, so getting more interested in finding another v8 stick convertible, but the market sucks for convertibles in summer, I'll...

    Lol, I've been racing motorcycles for the past decade at an expert level, probably why one-pedal driving is so boring. . .

    Missing my ICE car. . .

    Funny that a lot of people view the desire for a certain type of car as a "magnet" for sexual interest, and that only old people appreciate performance (or muscle) cars. I found that when I've owned "nicer" sports cars (Porsches, Corvettes, bmw's) women were less attracted than when I drove my...

    Missing my ICE car. . .

    Yeah, Miatas and Boxsters are cheap fixes, but neither have backseats, which is why camaros, mustangs and M240i's are on the shortlist. When my daughter moves to college, maybe then. . .

    Missing my ICE car. . .

    Lol, Ok, I guess I'm not alone, although I'm toying with the concept of "trading down" from my 3P+ to an SR and getting a stick/droptop. The Performance is irrefutably amazing, but the SR would be fine for around town, when I want to just "drive", I'd rather have the top down and row the gears...

    Missing my ICE car. . .

    I "might" have pushed some legal limits on the way home tonight, the performance (of my Performance) 3 is undeniable, but yes, having the best of all worlds is preferred when finances and space permit. I guess I could rent droptop a few times a month with the gas money I'm saving. .

    Missing my ICE car. . .

    my original plan was to pay off the Camaro, (which I did) and lease an EV, since I know the tech will get better and better (which it will). Unfortunately, I got "upgrade-itis" and HAD to have the best (Performance). Sunday drives with wife and daughter with the top down were epic, now the...

    Missing my ICE car. . .

    Yeah, in hindsight I would have bought the SR+ and kept the Camaro, one for fun and one for practical stuff, but garage space and wife nag factor got the best of me. Plus, she wouldn't share her 3, so I "had" to buy my own. They won't be making V-8 stick shifts anymore, with the new Vette...

    Missing my ICE car. . .

    I'm sure I'm in a vast minority, and I love my 3P+, but I really miss my convertible V-8 stick shift Camaro. Against my better judgment, I sold it because wifey insisted I couldn't have both. I'm going through serious withdrawls of rowing through gears, dropping the top, the heated/ventilated...

    Owners of demo cars, was the discount worth it?

    I bought a 3DP+ demo just under 2k miles for about $3.2k off. Had a few scratches on inside of frunk, and a big scratch on the front bumper. I told them I would refuse the care based on the bumper condition, and they replaced the entire bumper right there. Very happy with the car, and the...

    Aftermarket Wheels on Model 3

    I spoke w/ an engineer at Velox, he said, "uh, maybe". I was specifically concerned about caliper clearance, and he didn't ha clear answer, stating that Tesla changed the "barrel shape" of their hubs on the performance model (?). Since I'd be ordering through Costco, guess I could buy just one...

    Performance Range Now Listed as 322 Miles

    I drove my wife's LR RWD 3 this weekend, and she has the 18" aeros. I was honestly jealous of all the extra range she gets. The car "coasts" a lot better (RWD), and gets like 240 Wh/mi., even driven somewhat "fun". Made me start thinking about getting 18" wheels, just to be more efficient...

    New SDG&E rate: EV-TOU-5

    Cool, I reviewed my online bill yesterday, and was showing inconsistent data, ie I was using less energy, but my bill increased by $85. Probably misunderstood the info, but opted for EVTOU-5 anyway. Thanks for the advice.

    Issues with CVRP rebate and a Demo M3

    I bought a 3P+ demo, and got my check within a month, even before it was registered. Was a quick turn-around, unlike my HOV stickers, which still haven't come.

    New SDG&E rate: EV-TOU-5

    thanks for the info guys, I installed my solar in 2014 and thought I had some kind of special "grandfathered" net rate, but I doubt it now.

    New SDG&E rate: EV-TOU-5

    Interesting, sounds like EV TOU 5 is a good call, although I wasn't aware they paid you less for power generated? With only 1 car, the $16/mo didn't make sense, since we were essentially generating what we needed. With a second car and HVAC, I expect to exceed our generation, but the trick is...

    New SDG&E rate: EV-TOU-5

    Is there an easy way to assess the value of these plans? I have a 5.4Kw solar system, but we have two M3's. We only charge after midnight, probably 2-3x's a week for me, and once for my wife. We were breaking even on our bill with solar when we just had one Tesla, but now we have two and...

    Performance Range Now Listed as 322 Miles

    I did a crazy experiment today. I drove about 100 miles, mostly freeway, and I didn't go above 72 mph. OMG. [insert eyeroll] (I don't think I've driven that slow on a freeway in Socal in years.) Lo and behold, with 100 miles down on a 90% charge, I'm showing a range of another 148 miles and...

    Performance Range Now Listed as 322 Miles

    Wow, that's a significant difference. You must drive very conservatively. On my way to work today, I watched my Wh/m, and when I'm having "fun" I'm easily in the mid-400's, and when slow/boring, still above 300. I turned off Sentry, but keep dashcam operational, can't think of any other...
