    For anyone doubting buying FSD, go ahead and buy it now

    to the people that recommend FSD - do you actually recommend it or are you justifying your purchases? Im guilty of doing the latter sometimes when I know im in the wrong. At this point, FSD is a 6k loan to tesla

    Unpopular Opinion: The 3 is a $30k car and was built as such

    you know just as well as the rest of us that even when you point out the issues, tesla just defers it to their service center and says theyll take care of the issue later. Then theres a 50/50 chance that they'll a). actually do the work under warranty b). sufficiently fix the issue the first...

    Unpopular Opinion: The 3 is a $30k car and was built as such

    you're tired about hearing about build quality issues even though youve faced - and rejected - 2 vehicles due to said issue? Just because you've accepted this practice, doesnt mean that others must, too.

    Leather Console Wrap

    that basenor leather vinyl looks like a pretty good solution. I dropped my car off for a chrome delete and the guy offered a center console wrap for 100 so I had to do it. If I didnt, id go with the basenor leather wrap

    Squeaks from Driver Side Window?

    my only concern adding some sort of lubricant to the door seal is that my windows are tinted and the tint film comes up all the way to the edge/lip of the window - id be worried with that constant up/down of closing the door + lubrication may get between the film and effect the tint

    Right amount of tint?

    id recommend getting night glasses for driving and not tinting your windshield. I know lots of people on this forum have tinted their windshield but I think the negatives far outweigh the benefits, ie visibility issues since you have sensitive eyes - but thats for you to decide as for tint, id...

    What's the most surprising thing you've found once you got your Tesla?

    the most surprising thing to me is that im able to get by on 110v charging despite draining my battery 40% apprx 3-4 times a week commuting to work. Sure, I may not be able to get to 80% every day, but usually leave with 75%+ i know this is unique to people who only commute into the office a...

    Paint damaged at Tesla but they are refusing to fix

    i previously took it into the servicer center - we flagged the spots on the car - left my car there all day and picked up before the service center closed. Spots were still there and there was no one around to talk to. Funny how a $10 bottle of detailing compound and some elbow grease could've...

    Final Decision: Is Going from AWD to P Worth $9,946-$12,946?

    definitely not worth it and Tesla agrees which is why they've been continually lowering price to meet demand. I would contest the existence of LR AWDs with performance speed but save for the hardware upgrades further indicates that Tesla understands it may be overpriced

    I love all colors of model 3.

    My commute is primarily in one of he most tesla congested routes (milpitas to san mateo via 280 mostly) and I try to actively gauge which color is the most popular and it really depends on the day. Some days, I see mostly white cars, some days I see predominantly blue cars on the road - only...

    Any practical advantages of PUP red brembo brakes over standard brakes?

    does anyone have experience using both the LR AWD & the P3d with the upgraded brakes? I have an opportunity to install the brakes from a p3d and was wondering if it was worth the trouble as ive read here that real world difference is negligible. Im hoping someone has experience with both and can...

    Customer Service Nightmare at Tyson's Corner, Virginia

    to be fair, what if you showed up after multiple cancelled appointments and were told that your car wont be fixed even tho it should be taken care of under warranty?

    The woes of wrecking a Tesla Model 3 Performance...

    given the shape of the structure you hit, your car is likely to have thought you hit a tree and therefore deployed airbags. Happened to my MBZ S Class at relatively low speeds when I accidentally hit a bowling ball sized rock - all airbags deployed - car totalled

    at this point its just a fact: tesla customer service is non-existent. You cant even call it terrible or the worst in the industry because it literally is so hard to get a hold of anyone.

    How much do you value SR+ to LR (AWD) range upgrade?

    somethings no one mentions is that recommended charge for these cars is from 80% max for daily and 20% before you should start charging again. Thats effectively 144 miles of range for the SR+ and 186 miles for the LR unless youre doing 45mph on the highway in warm weather, no ac on, you...
