The final cut of TMC Podcast #29 is available now with topics time-stamped. We discussed the Tesla Cybertruck's expected 1 MW Ultra-Fast Charging capability, the Tesla Semi Delivery Event, the coming Model 3 refresh (project "Highland"), and more. You can watch it now on YouTube.
Just did 3rd tire rotation as we hit ~18500 miles. Thread looks good but tires seem lopsided. We are in Florida with speed limits of 70mph in places and drive pretty fast with occasional fast acceleration. No noticable issues or road noise while driving. What's your experience with tires?
Has anyone done or could help with this analysis?
What is the fastest speed we should use on m3 to get somewhere far (1000+ miles) while using only superchargers to charge up in order to get somewhere in the shortest amount of time?
I.e. driving 90 mph in m3, battery loses about 30% so it...
Ok, I'm looking for people who traveled with coolers in model 3 to share your experiences and recommendations. What worked and what didn't? I'm thinking to use the space in trunk under the floor panel to put a portable cooler, anyone did that yet and has a link for the cooler That fit perfectly...
noticed today and pretty sure it's brand new. Vin 101xx. I've heard about glass roof cracks due to stress but didn't see any references to chips. Anyone else had this and resolved it with SC? What happened? Any help is appreciated.
I see driving Dynamics, purchasing, handling, UI but I don't see software section. I mean really?!? The only area of the car s/x/3 that gets updated every two weeks and there is no section for the. Mods?
I see autopilot, UI, maps/GPS, fsd all part of this section. Is anyone listening?
base 3m tint = ~$350
top of the line tint = ~$1000
chrome delete = minimum $650 with multiple shops charging $800-1000. where is the $350 chrome delete for m3? are there kits i can get to install chrome delete myself?
thanks for all the help.

FPCU sent loan documents to sign where registered owner is me but the legal owner is FPCU. however, nowhere through the doc (that i can find) does it say they're going to remove themselves as legal owner once loan balance is satisfied. has anyone dealt with this? i cant imagine this not being a...
Florida is hot. On rare occasions when I cannot find shade and absolutely need to keep car temperature cool, ill continue to run the engine in my ICE and have AC set to 68. I can then exit the car and use the fob to lock the doors. AC will keep running and inside, the car will maintain set...
i realize it's the only I/o for the car and will likely be a problem. Regardless, is there a way to mod model 3 to play videos from iOS/Android/Blu-ray on its display or part of it?
Think rear seat entertainment for kids.
Based on the fact there is little to no maintenance, I don't expect to be going to change oil and rotate tires at the dealer or a shop. So what now? How does a person ensure proper tire maintenance on tesla and specifically m3?
initially, i had Nov-Jan first production and now Dec-Feb first production delivery window due to production delay. i assume its delivery window but raising this thread to confirm this. i'm curious, probably like many others, if anyone who had a windows like this did not get their car within...
So a question For those who have experience and can help. In few months, I will hopefully own a model 3 [Much excited]. In meantime, I'm trying to figure out where to setup charging station for it. The options are, 1) inside garage, 2) outside garage, 3) one inside, one outside.
looking for specific information on time and location to see M3 in person sooner rather than later. all these pictures of employees getting delivery and owners taking delivery imminently gave me m3 fever. i hope its not contagious.
is there a difference in paint quality between base m3 black and all others? Will upgraded paint colors last longer? I intend to keep the car for a while but do not want to spend thousands on getting xpel installed.
I.e. when I read that some other paint is multi coat, I'm interpreting that...
So I just read this article and thought about the implication if waymo comes out with their Chrysler minivan that's fully autonomous for about $300/month + $2.2/gallon of fuel used, I will seriously consider cancelling m3 reservation. Keep in mind that waymo is staying fsd will be reliable...
In Florida, many cars come with factory windows tint for rear passengers and rear window (specifically SUVs, not sure about cars). Is that something m3 will have? I've not seen any production m3 with tinted windows.
Has anyone with "WTF" or "stop trying to murder me autopilot" experience (e.g. AP1 or AP2 starts leaving lane with clear markings into highway divider) raised issue with Tesla and they've resolved it?
please share your experience working/dealing with tesla, process you used to ensure issue...
I know there is vehicle to grid but I don't believe Tesla cars support this.
Has anyone been able to wire their Tesla to house to power fridge, portable a/c or fans, etc after hurricane takes down power for several days?
Would love to use those 50 kW in m3 for this.
