    rear bike rack question.

    I actually experience longer range with the roof rack than the hitch rack. I guess because my bikes have a pretty flat profile?

    Sleeping at super chargers?

    I just made a 36 hour trip Texas to Wyoming with the wife. Spent 2 nights at holiday inns express close to the SC for about $100 a night. NicE places and we disinfected the rooms ourselves (Covid concerns). One of the rooms was like it had never been cleaned and the other was impecable. Yeah...

    Recommendations, please: kayaks, trailers, hitches, advice for Model 3

    This is a 14’ kayak and the front line does touch the car. The line came with some rubber protectors that “stick without glue” to the car and don’t let it move. the lines are from a kayak carrying kit from my 2009 Mini Cooper

    Carrying a kayak on the Tesla bars, which brand do you use?

    @Biscuitman I am paranoid so I put the tie downs. Easier to tie the kayak than picking it up from the freeway @TX_M3P+ ties to hitch lock

    Is the Model 3 on death row because of the Model Y?

    Personally the model 3 is already a large car for my taste. Is the biggest car I have owned. My previous car was a Mini Cooper to put it in perspective. I don't need extra space, If I need to take cargo I can rent an SUV or buy lunch for one of my many friends with trucks here in TX. Each car...

    I’d say do your test again But either turn off Bluetooth or turn off all phones set as keys in your house

    tesla hate.

    I think the reasons are simple and not so simple at the same time. 1. Misinformation: a lot of people are told that this company is going to eliminate a lot of car manufacturer jobs, that this is a left wing company trying to push environmental propaganda, blah blah blah. 2. Human nature...

    Importing a Tesla into Colombia (South America): any missing features?

    Being from Colombia and knowing the status of the roads I can imagine autopilot is pretty much useless if you don't have street markings. I can't imagine how the car behaves with all the motorcycles coming out of nowhere around it.But @ecarfan has the most valid point on the lack of service. The...

    Pre-2019 HW3 upgrades

    Assume FSD was fully functional....

    I had my Model 3 for 15 months already. Done a few road trips in it and put 23,600 miles on it. I would easily say about 80% of those miles have been on EAP. I love the idea of driving but I find it boring in the real world. Traffic is horrible! and most drives I do are in east Texas, meaning...

    Use Rainex on Model 3 windshield?

    I've used it from day 1 and never had any issues from it. What I read from the interwebs is that some products cause annoying noises from the wipers.

    Glass Roof Cracks

    I just dropped my car off at the service center, BUT mine is crack because of impact. Rock flying down the freeway hit it. It took 2 months to get the parts available. I am not angry at Tesla for the wait, but If I find that rock I have a few words for it.
