    Airlift/UAS air suspension for 3/Y

    Do the wheels come with tires? Did they need to be redrilled? Hubcentric? Rubbing?

    Anyone actually tested Unplugged vs MPP or Ohlins?

    The i4 brakes felt much more controllable at the limit when taken out of B mode where there was little to no regen. But when using regen then transitioning to brakes at the limit seemed too aggressive.

    Anyone actually tested Unplugged vs MPP or Ohlins?

    I was there too Thursday AM last week. I agree the i4 does feel pretty good in the autocross. It feels a lot like my e90 M3 (which I drove that day), except the i4 does have more roll than what I’m used to. It also doesn’t feel as responsive in the steering. This is probably because of the...

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

    Not my Model 3, but another good looking one I saw in the freeway while driving my Model Y. Wonder what wheels it has because they looked great 👍🏽.

    Even though these are 19’s, they look great because of the offset. Any issues rubbing?

    PPF over matte CF

    This was my Hertz Model Y for the weekend while visiting Austin, Texas. Took this in front of the Giga Factory.

    How well does the glass roof reflect heat?

    I’ve got a 2018 Model 3 and a 2022 Performance Model Y. My Model 3 has the roof tinted and the model Y doesn’t. It feels like there is a difference between the two cars here in SoCal. So in a few weeks I’m getting the roof tinted on the Y.

    PPF over matte CF

    After watching some CF repair videos… matte seems to just be the gloss but with no clear coat. So maybe better just to leave PPF off it. Then after a few years, sand it and polish it so it stays matte.

    PPF over matte CF

    I’d be curious if the matte PPF’d CF will match the non PPF’d matte CF rear lip.

    PPF over matte CF

    Just got matte carbon fiber mirror caps for my performance Y to match the matte rear spoiler. I want to cover the mirror caps with PPF. Will standard gloss PPF make the matte look more like gloss PPF? Or should I cover it in matte PPF? Which would match the non PPF’d rear spoiler the best...

    Local aftermarket wheel vendors in OC, CA.

    There’s EAS and there’s Evasive out here in SoCal. Also there’s Mod Bargains too.

    Enhanced AutoPilot (EAP) Has Returned!

    I think it still works that way… someone will need to buy EAP to find out. My 2018 Mod3 had EAP and on the app upgrading to FSD is $6k. But on my ModYP it’s $12k for FSD.

    MountainPass Performance Comfort Coilovers

    I don’t use mudflaps either. I just rely on the tesla PPF that they sell to protect most of the area that gets affected.

    Any reason to upgrade 2018 M3 for 2022 M3P?

    I’ve got an original rwd Mod3 and MYP. 2018 long range rwd Mod3 lowered with Mountain Pass Performance Coilovers + PS4S tires and a 2022 MYP also lowered with Mountain Pass Performance Coilovers. I do like how fast the MYP is when I push it. However there aren’t many instances where I can do...

    How are you dealing with parking lot curb-stops?

    I always wondered which direction to turn the blinker. Do you turn it towards the spot signaling you’re going in? Or do you signal away from the spot since you need to pull forward and away to angle in more easily? I was in my other vehicle (an FJ cruiser with big blind spots) when I signaled...

    Auto frunk options

    Now I remember. There is an actuator that pulls the latch to open it. So in order to close it all I can do is unhook the cable from the actuator so it latches. So does the emergency release cable allow you to open it if you remove remove the actuator cable?

    Auto frunk options

    Curious If this emergency release cable allows you to also latch the frunk closed. To get mine to close at the time I had to pull a spring off. Then it would latch close. I’m guessing if it is stuck open, one can pull the same spring to latch it closed and the emergency release cable will allow...

    Auto frunk options

    I really do want to get the auto frunk for both my Tesla’s. But I’d want to know if there is a completely manual way to open and close the frunk. Years ago before all these auto frunk options came out I was on a road trip with my Model 3. I opened the frunk to take something out. However when...

    Tesla intrusion without phone key/card?

    Ever since I saw the video about Bluetooth relays being used to get into the car I started using pin to drive and pin to open the glove box. But I wish it had a pin in general to unlock anything on the screen. I notice I can still open my garage door at home without a pin.

    Best Aggressive Wheel Offsets?

    Are they hubcentric? Or did you need an adapter?

    Blew something up in the rear!…

    Lol I had a sleepless night because I thought I had a warranty scare this last weekend and my Y is lowered with coil overs. I was driving to Vegas. After supercharging in Baker at 1130pm I heard something rubbing and clanking on the drivers side every time I accelerated and stopped. I looked...

    Facebook marketplace? How much? Too tempting, but I’ve got te37 sl’s on order from Evasive for my BMW M3. Was thinking of getting some sort of Volk Racing wheels on my Model Y AFTER my te37’s come in… lol

    Picture of your Model Y - Right Now!

    Just installing coil overs rejects my warranty claim lol. I’ve got spacers on my 2018 mod 3 with mountain pass coilovers as well. It now has about 70,000 miles with no issues from the wider/ lower stance. If the wheel bearings go then I’m fine getting new bearings at this mileage. As for...

    MountainPass Performance Comfort Coilovers

    Zero issues on either car. Well, on the Mod3 I still keep gettting people asking if it’s a Performance 3.

    MountainPass Performance Comfort Coilovers

    Finally got around to dialing in the ride height and suspension settings after getting them installed at EAS. After a month I’ll head over to Auto Union Tuning to get it aligned. Btw, my Mod 3 also has MPP Coilovers since when they first came out. Now it’s at 67k miles and still riding like new.

    I snapped my strut mount bolt 😫

    This was back in 2018 when I was installing one of the first MPP coilovers. And parts like this weren’t available though tesla back then.

    Performance model y stud and pocket

    Wow, looks aggressively good. Any issues with rubbing at full turn? Or whenever the wheels are fully compressed into the fender? (Like when you come off a driveway sideways?)

    Performance model y stud and pocket

    Just lowered my MYP with MPP coil overs. I need to get rid of that “grandpa offset”. Any other pictures of what the 18mm looks like? What do you think of 20mm all around?

    I snapped my strut mount bolt 😫

    I did this years ago when I installed my MPP coilovers. When removing the old suspension, the top of the bolt snapped off. It seems that the bolt was cross threaded at the factory. Anyhow I was able to find the same grade bolt with the proper thread at the local True Value hardware store. I...

    You have more pictures of this setup? I’ve got an appointment at EAS to get MPP coilovers and spacers installed. Did you go with MPP’s recommended height and settings? Or did you go lower? What size spacers? Also want to see more pictures from the rear quarter to see the mud flaps.

    PMY Mountain Pass bearings, coilovers and traction arms

    I like the height you set it at. How much lower did you set the height? Is that the recommended MPP settings for height? Just want to know since I have a set of MPP coilovers going on mine at the end of the month.

    Black Scrubs on White Interior

    I wear black Dickies jogger scrubs every day and I don’t notice any dye transfer on my white Model Y interior. The other day I was pretty dirty from sitting on the floor ceramic coating my wheels and brakes and there wasn’t even any transfer of dirt onto the seats. I guess it does help that I...

    MYP: Spacers on 21” Ubertines

    I’m planning on ordering MPP coilovers for my performance model Y. Will probably lower it a little more than MPP’s recommendations. At full compression would 20mm front and rear rub? Or do I need to camber the front and back in a little?

    Current Best Tesla Loan Rate?

    This is good to know. I read my tesla loan agreement and there was nothing about a pre payment penalty. I just need to figure out why DCU is taking awhile to unlock my account so I can finish being a member.
