    Is the heat pump supposed to be this loud? Also, it chirps

    I came to a 2022 M3LR from a 2018 M3LR. One of the big differences is the M3 now has a heat pump. Currently it's pretty cold here, it's been between 5 and 15 degrees while I've been out. I'm surprised at how loud the heat pump is, particularly when I'm standing still, but it's also loud...

    Experiences with US Bank for loan?

    Well for most people saving up tens of thousands of dollars isn't trivial, I hope you realize how fortunate you are if it's just a second though. Also, money is cheap these days.

    Experiences with US Bank for loan?

    I called and they said my statement was just printed on the 28th, so I should be receiving it in a few days, at which point I'll be able to set up my online account. Thanks for the help!

    Experiences with US Bank for loan?

    How long should I expect to wait before I receive any kind of paperwork on the loan? I picked up the car on 12/3 and have received nothing. I think my first payment is due on 1/15, but I currently have no way to pay it.

    Auto high beams and auto wipers worse on 2022 than 2018

    I know I had seen posts about how bad they were, but I never had any major complaints in my 2018. I was really surprised that as similar as the two cars are (same cameras, same processor, similar SW version) that there would be such a dramatic difference

    Auto high beams and auto wipers worse on 2022 than 2018

    I recently got my 2022 M3 after selling my 2018 M3. I feel like both the auto wipers and the auto high beams are dramatically worse in this car than the previous one. In the 2022, the high beams stay on way longer than I'm comfortable with, whereas I was always quite happy with how they were...

    Does tesla still cover rental car and hotel?

    I'm going to be driving about 4 hrs to my nearest delivery center in the next week or two to pick up my M3LR. When I got my first M3 in 2018, Tesla covered my rental car and a hotel room to go pick up the car. Anyone know if they're still doing that?

    I sure hope your information is inaccurate! My EDD recently got narrowed down from 11/16-12/15 down to 11/26 - 12/8. Feb would be a far cry from that!

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    I have sold my previous M3 and am currently borrowing a car from a friend. Current EDD is 11/26 - 12/6. I've been reading how tesla is letting people put their orders on hold which I'm debating if the EV tax credit seems to be materializing. If I do that, I'd have to ask my friend if I can...

    Poll - Are you waiting for the infrastructure bill before ordering?

    SA = sales associate I assume? Where do you get a person to talk to? I placed my order online and never got contacted by anyone specific. If I wanted to talk to someone, my only option would be to call the delivery center where I plan on picking it up.

    Poll - Are you waiting for the infrastructure bill before ordering?

    Wow $48k is a great offer! Is that selling private party or to a dealer? Do you have FSD? I do not, and was pretty pleased with my offer of $43k.

    Poll - Are you waiting for the infrastructure bill before ordering?

    Yeah sounds like we're in exactly the same boat. I'm also selling a '18 LR M3. I think i'm going to sell mine next week as I think the value can only go down from here. And I found a friend which will let me use his 3rd car for much less than renting one, so that will take the pressure off...

    Poll - Are you waiting for the infrastructure bill before ordering?

    I placed my order earlier this month. I toyed with the idea of trying to delay my order, but I'm also trying to time selling my existing M3 and lock in the high used value. If I waited to sell my car until Dec/Jan, the value could drop significantly, especially if the EV credit officially...

    Locking in a price in anticipation of the Federal Tax Credit

    Thanks for that article. This part seems critical: Doesn't that mean that anyone trying to wait on placing an order until there's a new EV credit can go ahead an order, knowing that the credit will be retroactive? Or at least a big part of it?

    Experiences with US Bank for loan?

    I'm working through the "paperwork" on the tesla site for the order I placed, and I got approval for 2.49% through US Bank. Before I hit the button to commit to using US Bank, I wanted to make sure that people typically have been having good experiences with this bank. I don't expect much...

    Main differences between 2018 M3 and today

    I'd consider a MY, but the fact that it's not available until April makes that less appealing. I'd either have to wait to sell my M3 and hope the car market hasn't cooled off, or sell now(ish) and figure out some way to get alternate transportation for 6 months.

    Main differences between 2018 M3 and today

    There is no official trade up deal, it was just in reference to the crazy used car prices right now and how it makes it easy to upgrade to a newer one.

    Main differences between 2018 M3 and today

    Sounds like lots of good reasons to go with the new, and the math sure seems to work out!

    Main differences between 2018 M3 and today

    Model 3 vs Model Y: I have 3 kids so I need our minivan for road trips. Around town I don't have the need for a larger car. I could maybe take a model Y with the 3rd row for a road trip, but I'm seriously doubtful on having room for our bags. If i did get the 3rd row, now i'm looking at a car...

    TeslaCam error ui_a108 since 2020.48.10

    Has there been a solution to this? I have a 32gb flash drive plugged in and I get this warning, but only intermittently. I have tried reformatting the drive using the settings menu, but it didn't remove the warning. The dashcam is still working, so I don't see any negative impacts, other than...

    I know that in 44.10 they updated the spotify and audio interface in general. However since that update, I can't seem to search by artist. If I enter a search, the results list out playlists, podcasts, songs, but not artist. So I can't select the artist I want to hear their music...

    Warranty coverage for dragging brakes?

    Here's the picture of the rear rotors, they look much cleaner. And I don't think it's just lack of use, because when I roll forward slowly I can hear the pads dragging on the rotors.

    Warranty coverage for dragging brakes?

    On my RWD M3, I noticed that I can hear the brakes on the front of the car dragging a bit. I took a look and there's a clear difference on the rotors as a result of this. I'm sure it's nothing serious, and just that the pads are dragging a bit so they just need to be cleaned up a bit. But I'm...

    Any way to get safely on 4 jack stands?

    I'm assuming that you're talking about them taking one set of wheels off the car and putting another set on. Not mounting tires to rims.

    Tesla mobile service has a tire mounting and balancing machine in their van?...

    Any way to get safely on 4 jack stands?

    Yeah, I saw that, it just seems crazy that I can't accomplish this without spending a large amount of money for an isolated task. Was really just hoping there was some safe point on the suspension to hold the car up. In lieu of this I suppose I can put 2 summer and 2 winter wheels on the car...

    Any way to get safely on 4 jack stands?

    I currently have 2 sets of wheels, one with winter tires, and one with summer tires. I want to swap the tires and wheels so that I can have the winter wheels with the summer tires on them and vice versa. I'd rather not have the local tire shop jack up the tesla, so the easiest way for me to do...

    Help looking for a summer only tire

    Currently reading about the General G-MAX RS in 245/45/18. Seems to get pretty solid reviews, and the price is great. The size difference should be fine, only increases the diameter by 0.5" and changes the speedo by +2.4%. Again, I appreciate that this isn't as good a tire as the PS4, but...

    Thanks for that post. I feel very much in line with that. The PS4 is clearly the best tire. But I probably don't need the best.

    That's quite the premium! I'm surprised it has a 92Y service rating. My stock tires are 98Y I believe.

    When you say Tesla specific PS4, you're saying it's different from the PS4 that I'd get on tirerack? Do you get the tesla specific one directly through tesla?

    Help looking for a summer only tire

    For those who asked, or care, I used to be an avid autocrosser, but I went around 5 years without doing it at all once I had little kids. Last summer I managed to get to one event with the model 3, and I hope to make it to an event this summer too. So I don't think it makes sense to make a...

    Help looking for a summer only tire

    I spoke with the local firestone dealer, they'll sell a set of 4 Indy 500 mounted and balanced with tax included for $690. Sounds like a pretty good deal, better than tirerack when you include mounting and balancing. Yeah I'll certainly give up some efficiency for grip, do you think the PS4s...
