    Tesla Model 3 Moments

    Some of my best moments are one when a guy in a Mercedes AMG convertible pulls along side me on the 405 heading into L.A. and gives me a thumbs up . Another a few weeks ago at a local strip mall as my wife and I exit the 3 a guy comes up to ask questions about the car. I tell the wife I'll meet...

    Driving Model 3, and then driving other vehicles...

    The Aero covers are much easier and faster to clean than the uncovered 10 spoke wheel. Also the covers are unique to the 3. The uncovered wheel looks like every other generic wheel out there. In time you'll see more solid looking wheels to gain efficiency.

    Driving Model 3, and then driving other vehicles...

    I've had my 3 for a little over a month now and I haven't even sat in any of my ICE vehicles! The 3 is just too much fun!

    How do you register a new card key?

    Just got 2 extra key cards last Friday. I was going to do it at the SC but they offered to send a technician to the house. They must have an open work order to complete the process. Only took 15 minutes and the cards cost 5 dollars each. Great deal!

    Anyone have a perfect delivery?

    My delivery was flawless. The wife noticed something that looked like scratches on the rear bumper and door window trim but it was just leftover adhesive from the protective covering they use during shipping. My car is blue, aero, VIN 147xx. Picked up at Marina Del Rey.

    Enhanced autopilot - worth it?

    I didn't order EAP on my 3 since I don't even use the cruise control in my ICE. I've logged over 2 million miles in 48 years driving cars, trucks, and motorcycles. Just like to drive. When it requires effort, it's time to pull over and take a break. I can always add it later if I feel the need...

    ANOTHER (Delivery Checklist)

    Take the wife like I did. She'll nitpick the cr*p out of it! It passed her inspection, good enough for me!

    Fremont delivery - car refused

    Doesn't matter. At least I know I didn't pay more for my car than the guy that pulls up next to me ( with the same options ).

    Wiring plans for Model 3

    I have a 120ft run from the panel to the garage. My electrician charged $525 to run 6 guage 4 conductor wire, 50amp breaker, NEMA 15-40 outlet, 3/4" conduit in the exposed portion of garage. I have a 200 amp panel and had 2 unused conduits from it up to the attic. He did the job last week in two...

    Dumb question about charging cable

    The NEMA 15-40 socket is around $10 at Home Depot. Always unplug the car end first, then from the socket and you'll never have an issue.

    Is $9k worth 310 miles v 220?

    LR battery is a must for me. My son lives 215 miles from me and the last 40 miles is up a mountain road. Short range battery would force a change stop.

    New York Rebate

    The Fed Credit is only good up to your tax liability which is currently $7500. If you only owe say $4000 you won't have to pay any Federal tax but you won't get the remaining $3500 as a refund.

    Phone as Key Issues

    Just picked up my 3 five days ago. Car is awesome but phone key works about 50 percent of the time. It says connected on the app but still won't start. I upgraded my wife's phone ( she had a flip phone ) a few months ago to be ready for the 3. She says I'll stick with the old Civic until there's...
