    12v wire tap for Radar Detector

    well damn, just tried it today an no work. Should have read the comments in the youtube video where they mentioned that was a low voltage wire. BLAH. Any links on how you hid the wiring. Going to do the spade plug thing.

    Radar detector for model 3

    for this running radar detectors, are we sure there isn't a loss in sensitivity due to the front windshield. I just read the manual the toll tags still need to be mounted to the right of the mirror mount....or is that not true anymore?

    12v wire tap for Radar Detector

    hmmm ok. thats just a really weird accessory to have a constant 12v to it. Seem to be a source of vampire drain....maybe. It's already too late as I ordered the mirror tap. I should know pretty quickly when I get the car tomorrow and the parts later this week

    12v wire tap for Radar Detector

    hey long time Tesla owner, (roadster, S, X...etc) looking to mirror tap this...why can't you just connect it to the mirror dimmer here and use a mirror tap? Should take all of 15 mins...or is this constant 12v which would be weird for a mirror. You can easily see that he gets access to the...

    Carbon Fiber Rims

    I was just about to put in an order for those for my GT-R.... but they don't seem to take advantage of what CF is good for that is strength and light weight. While Carbon Rev uses a "proprietary" method to make their wheels they don't use an autoclave so its not a light dry CF piece. They...

    Rear spoiler ?

    I have some of the problems as posted. Good to find this thread. But this has been happening for a while...not really sure which firmware it first started occurring. My spoiler does move to the correct positions when at speed and speed >45. However when parked, the spoiler doesn't retract all...

    What ball mount is everyone using for the Bosal tow hitch?

    ok I got it worked out. Ended up running to Lowe's with the receiver in hand trying them to see if they fit. I found the Reese 70628 to fit. It has the right rise for my trailer so worked great. You can see the first picture with the model number. Second picture with my hitch that I...

    What ball mount is everyone using for the Bosal tow hitch?

    I was curious for the people already towing with the tow package. From this thread we know that the X uses the "Bosal" European tow hitch system Tow Package vs. Accessory Hitch I purchased a Reese ball mount which has the right rise for my trailer...

    Best Bike Rack for Model X

    I have a Thule, but plan to sell if for a Kuat. Consistently gets rated one of the best racks out there. The only thing I don't like about these are that they are heavy and not the easiest to store. Would love to see Tesla finally release the one they demo'd to compare Products | Küat Racks

    Falcon Wing Door Slowly Dropping

    I thought they would be cool initially but now that I have had them, they are awesome and 100% functional. The extra room it gives you is worth the complexities of the door. Not only that it works great. like with anything new, there are growing pains, but it seems to get worked out better...

    Front Passenger Door Not Operating

    I have this same problem and schedule to bring the car in. When I mentioned to them, they said they are going to order a back up latch incase that's it. My auto open is sporadic. Sometimes it works great...sometimes not (for passenger) Also when it auto closes it doesn't always show locked...

    Perpendicular and Parallel Parking in X

    weird, mine works flawlessly in my X as in my S.... if there is anything I can do to help verify let me know, but I drive like I usually do around parking spaces and the "P" shows up. Maybe the size of the car is bigger so it's more selective of the space?

    Popup on forums

    I just posted a complaint in the forum feedback thread. I think if the owners really want advertising traffic they need to do a better job filtering out crap like this. Otherwise it will start people ad blocking more defeating their intents with ads in the first place.

    Model X 22"wheels Exchanges about 10-15% range for enhanced handling.

    This. Changing tires is easy. Getting a forged wheel that is closer to weight of the cast 19' would probably make up most of the difference.

    Popup on forums

    I know this has been discussed about the ads and respect that. But it makes it hard to justify turning off my ad blocker or paypaling a donation when you surf the site in mobile safari only to have a full redirect to a webpage that says your a winner for a new iPhone!! Total spam!

    Tow hitch options for X?

    just a couple things about getting a tow hitch for the X...in the manual it basically states you need to get one at the same height as the hitch or a rise of .75" also, anyone who has attached their hitch, mine a bit "fiddly" There is a locking ball that when you turn the release knob it...

    Preference: manually shut front doors or depress handle?

    I do the same, but I find it curious that the car doesn't recognize to autoclose the passenger function since it has the ability to do so.

    Auto Presenting Driver Door

    mine is pretty close to flawless. That is it opens when I approach. It also seems to know if I approach from the front of the car and it will open the door partly, then when I go around the partly open door to the other side, it seems to sense it and open it fully. HOWEVER, I do get those...

    just updated last night to 2.15.80 not sure if it's an issue with the firmware or anything else but notice that in auto headlight mode, the headlights are staying on even in super sunny Texas days. The lights always seemed to cycle appropriately on and off prior to the last update. I did...
