    Yes you have to remove the stock diffuser. Mine came with no directions.

    Pic of your Model 3.......RIGHT NOW! [model 3 pictures thread]

    Brought it to a shop. I knew in advance how annoying they are to install. Would highly recommend getting a shop because these actually did not fit out of the box. The shop had to shave parts of the diffuser for it to fit snugly against the bumper.

    Tire Rotation Questions

    Rotating directional tires on an AWD vehicle probably has little value, if any at all. Benefits come mostly for RWD/FWD vehicles where load and traction bias towards one axle.

    Aftermarket Wheels on Model 3

    Agree with @P3D-R on the 15mm spacer. For the rear, I'd say go for the 275s, but just keep in the back of your mind that you may need to consider getting Rear Camber Arms to dial in more camber if the fit is tight. Assuming you're either on or planning on some kind of suspension you can lower?

    Aftermarket Wheels on Model 3

    Fitment assessments are never complete without indicating what tire specs you're going to go with, but the short answer is yes they should fit fine. The fronts should be ok with whatever tire you choose to go with. The rears will be close, but should be fine up to a 265 tire. May have to dial...

    Thanks! No spacers. Barely clearing as it is lol.

    Aftermarket Wheels on Model 3

    No. I currently run 18x9.5 +22 w/ 265/40s with front fender lip cut down to nothing and still rub slightly with -2.7 camber and a one finger ish gap.

    Aftermarket Wheels on Model 3

    Nice...looking forward to seeing how this turns out!

    Aftermarket Wheels on Model 3

    Good luck 👍 Do you plan on getting adjustable upper control arms? You will most likely need them to get the camber you will require.
  14. Nichigo

    Aftermarket Wheels on Model 3

    Tires are what will determine the rubbing or not here. Anything over a 245 or 255 will be a tough fit. I'm currently at the limit at 9.5 +22 on 265s @ -2.7 in the front (static).

    IKON Motorsports Front Lip for Model 3: A Review

    TBF I think you dodged a bullet. The fitment doesn't look great in that pic, and I (personally) don't think the double decker middle portion looks very good. IF they left the bottom part off, it would look a bit better and similar to the Ikon. Just my 2 cents :)

    IKON Motorsports Front Lip for Model 3: A Review

    Someone should jump on this demand and make a mold of the Ikon lip... Surprised Ikon isn't trying to make more of these considering it seems to be the most popular lip in the community. I love mine and had planned on buying another one since mine is cracked...now it looks like i need to find a...

    Repeater camera feeds are mostly useless when turn signal is on at night

    I get the glare. And imo, the blind spot camera function is useless. It shows up on your dash in an area you wouldn't typically be looking at when yo'ure changing lanes, and (at least for my settings), my fist on the steering wheel blocks much of my view. Wondering if Tesla will be able to...

    Pic of your Model 3.......RIGHT NOW! [model 3 pictures thread]

    Very minimally...and only recently since i upsized to 265s from 255s last week. Main reason for it is to get a proper alignment...my previous rear tires melted via camber wear after i lowered the car.

    265/35/19 vs 255/40/19 Michelin 4S

    Not exactly what you're asking for, but below is a pic of me with 18x9.5+22 on 265/40/18 lowered on MPP Comforts at max (~1.8 inches). Very slight rubbing on inclined driveways, but currently at the shop to get an alignment and shouldn't have any problems after that. Your setup with either of...

    San Diego Tire Shop

    Discount Tire has always been my go to for the last 14 years. The one in National City or LaMesa are the ones I have experience with...never had any issues with them, and they understand how to take care of high end wheels.

    Ordering California Personalized Plates

    That should work perfectly. You might even be ok to get a more flush look (and still clear) with a 255/35

    We really need to know the width and offset of your wheels to answer this :)

    Aftermarket Wheels on Model 3

    It's tough to answer the caliper clearance question with just width and offset. Different wheels have different pad thickness (part of the wheel that makes contact with the hub). For example, if it's a thin pad and you have concave spokes, you could still hit the caliper with a lower offset...

    Automated Car wash - yes or no?

    I drive through touchless washes under the following circumstances: Post-Rain or long trip that resulted in a layer of dirt caked onto parts of the car. Followed by waterless wash/wax/sealant applied by myself. Basically I only use it as a heavy pre-wash rinse when needed, but I still finish...

    Why dont we have a “jeep wave?”

    This. The Model 3 is the new Honda Civic from the 90s. Everyone and their mom has one, whether they care about the community or not.

    Mobile auto detailer recommendations in San Diego (Poway)?

    Have a buddy that lives in San Marcos and does a crazy good job. Really good at repairing any imperfections/swirls/scratches. Been going to him for 10+ years. He is not mobile though so you would have to drop off your car at his house. DM me if you would like his number.

    Is the front plate required in California???

    Ah gotcha, that might be why i don't see him. I only travel 1 exit north of the 56.

    Ceramic tints and PPF recommendations in San Diego

    Amazing amazing job by Local Tint Shop. Highly recommend not only based on quality of work, but by the level of customer service given by Nick (owner) and Jay (tint tech). Pics attached show the 5 window ceramic tint @ 20%.

    Aftermarket Wheels on Model 3

    I am actually having a difficult time finding them...I just quoted the available widths off the Ray's website. SL's are discontinued now, so that may be a factor. However, they just announced the release of the SAGA SL's. Assuming these are similar weight/spec. @MODEL+ is a retailer and can...

    Wrap Advice

    Green if you plan on lowering and getting complimentary wheels. Dark Gray if you're going to stay stock. Silver if you want to regret paying money to get such a common color ;)
