    South Korea

    Google Maps is hamstrung by South Korean laws. If Car Play was a thing I would be able to use Waze on the big screen at least. I feel bad for your issues bringing a USDM 3 to Korea, but this is exactly why I jumped through hoops to buy an SKDM 3. I won't be able to take it home but I don't...

    South Korea

    Seeing how it's a Korean spec car purchased in Korea and licensed and insured to operate on Korean roads, I'd say yes it is. ;-)

    South Korea

    Korean spec 2020 Tesla 3 has red rear turn signals. I had NO IDEA till now, didn’t even notice when we took delivery. I don’t think a US spec Tesla will have a data connection, that could be a huge deal. Someone with a US spec car needs to chime in on this.

    sorry! been really busy and the car is parked 26 floors below me most of the time. :-/ the charge port is a US standard 3 part small plug. I'll confirm the turn signal indicator color tonight.

    Sorry, the car was/is filthy from a road trip and I haven't had time to wash it. Went to the car wash today but the attendant wasn't there and I needed a wash mid and drying towels. I didn't bring anything with me... So I went to EMart and got supplies but ran out of motivation. This weekend...

    Thursday?

    South Korea

    Ah, CHARGING plug. That was lumped in with turn signal talk so I was confused. Our Tesla is a 2020 so it has the same charge port as USDM Teslas (I think). We have to use an adapter with the 3rd party charge station in our car park, and only one of the five Supercharger stations in Gangneung had...

    USDM cars have amber turn signals.

    South Korea

    They look exactly like Tesla 3 turn signals from USDM cars as far as I can tell. Not sure what you mean by "Tesla proprietary plug" though.

    Need more cow bell.

    I wish you could enable the rainbow road without the clip playing on repeat. My kid loves the rainbow road.

    Accel boost option no longer available?

    Acceleration Boost isn't available in Korea at all. I wouldn't spend $2000 on it (unless it came with the track software) but now that I *CAN'T* buy it I kinda want to. :D

    The post, the sig, the user name. I'm.... I'm speechless... ( softly in the background I queue up WindBeneathMyWings.mp3)

    Working in Korea under SOFA changes NOTHING about importing a vehicle into the US. A Korean spec Tesla cannot go back to the US till it’s 25 years old. Please, please, please prove me wrong.

    I told the 2 folks I talked to about it!

    South Korea

    It could be a US 3 headed back. I've talked to 2 Tesla owners that were waiting for their US Tesla to arrive. Again, I hope I am wrong about the shipping but I want hard proof before I believe it. I've seen this happen with US made cars sold in Europe and they weren't allowed back in the US...

    Charging challenges

    Dangjin seems like a hike from Osan. I would think Suwon the closer option?

    Charging challenges

    I wish they would build the SC in Dongtan. In the SC map it says "coming 2020" but that's all the info, not even a possible location.
  18. New_Old_Stock

    South Korea

    All of the ID plates attached to our SK Tesla are in Korean. Even if the only physical difference is the cellular modem, if those IDs and the VIN say it's a Korean vehicle then the DMV will most likely tell you to pound sand till it's 25 years old. I hope I am wrong!

    Tesla Korea pick up video

    There are lots of panel issues after you live with the car for a while. The front handles are flush, rear door handles sit a couple millimeters in. The interior trim on the trunk lid is loose on one side too. Pretty sure I can fix it, pretty sure I shouldn’t have too. I can’t wait till Tesla has...

    Any experience with 3M wraps and interruption of radar and sensors?

    The PPE film is sometimes thicker than what’s used for a color change wrap, usually when it’s just applied to certain areas of a vehicle and not the entire exterior.

    Wards 10 best car infotainment systems / UX - would you believe..?

    The navigation is terrible in Korea. I wish CarPlay and Android Auto were an option.
  31. New_Old_Stock

    Navigation 3D view??

    It does a visual trick where it looks like the map is tilted sometimes when using the navi (after owning a vehicle that had true 3d maps of major cities I wouldn't call it 3d though). I have no idea how to force that view during non-navi driving, if that's what you're referring to.

    Creep till I got comfortable with the Tesla, now I keep it set to hold. 1PDFTW

    Any experience with 3M wraps and interruption of radar and sensors?

    I should have stated vinyl wraps have zero impact. I have no experience with PPF. Sorry.
  34. New_Old_Stock

    Any experience with 3M wraps and interruption of radar and sensors?

    Zero impact. If there were, wraps wouldn’t be nearly as popular.

    Orbital Wheel Covers

    I have backed 3 campaigns over the past 7 years. 1 was an experienced company producing a known product. 1 was an experienced company making a new product. 1 was a new company started by experienced engineers making a relatively new product. So far I’m 3 for 3 but as you can see I don’t back...

    Aftermarket Wheels on Model 3

    The ///M cars still come with black trim. They need to save the chrome for that hideous grill they slapped on the 3 and 4.

    Acceleration Upgrade not available in SK?

    Forgot to update this thread: we called the service center last week trying to order the wheel cap kit and asked about the Acceleration Upgrade. We were told that it is not available and there are no plans to make it available in Korea. Also, while I'm ranting, it sucks that SK is at least 2...

    I've been using the wipers a lot in the past month. The automatic setting is terrible.

    I'm 90% sure you cannot. Even if you can, the cellular modem will not work and Tesla USA may not want to work on it. Vehicle import/export rules don't always make sense. ;-)
