    M3P: Which Tires wear faster- Front of Rear?

    Really? I thought on M3P the default mode is 50%/50% power distribution, unless dialed in differently in trackmode?

    Thank you, I guessed as much, but have no real explanation why.

    M3P: Which Tires wear faster- Front of Rear?

    I still have a decent amount of thread left on the summer Pirellis that came with the car when new. Now that these are off the car (currently using snow tires mounted on their own wheels), I noticed that two of the Pirellis have slightly more thread left than the other two, but I do not remember...

    Whistler, B.C. Supercharger: Paid Parking

    Moderator note: Thread title was edited to reduce click-baitiness. There are supposedly ten Superchargers in the basement of the Fairmont in Whistler. Only problem: you have to first pay a fee to get into the garage (no work around- I asked). Though it's "only" $7.50, it annoys me that I have...

    2021 M3: rear view mirror blinding at night

    I have the same problem as the OP: rear view mirror auto-dimming, especially of LED an Xenon headlights, is a joke. The dimming filter seems to focus the glare of certain wavelengths of light (the bluish type with higher Kelvin numbers). The insufficient dimming has been quite tiring on long...

    Realtime Supercharger Info

    Before I start my trip through the hottest area in the country right now, I want to check open Supercharger stalls along I-5 in Northern California, which, because of the historic heat dome, is prompting PGE brownouts for the next couple of days. If I cannot charge due to shut-offs by the...

    From your Thumbs Up, it seems you are agreeing with my approach? ..... it seems like a 245/35/20 Michelin PS4S might be a reasonable compromise for my Uberturbines, once my Pirellis are done: not too much range loss, little change in ride comfort, no need to recalibrate the computer/tachometer...

    Tires too narrow on Uberturbine

    1. To answer your original original question, I have some thoughts on why Tesla went with the 235. 265mm is 10.4" on a 9" wide wheel. Unsure if you have read this thread but there's some photos of 255s on the Uberturbines. 2. This may largely be dependent on the actual tire choice and your...

    Tires too narrow on Uberturbine

    Is there another thread where tire width and wheel rim protection was discussed?

    Tires too narrow on Uberturbine

    Thanks, but the two main questions WHY I am cotempating switching to 265s have not yet been addressed: 1. Will the protective lip of a 265 stick out far enough beyond the Uberturbine's rim to prevent curb rash exposure? Stock Pirelli 235/35R20 are too narrow, and do not protect the rim. 2. I...

    Tires too narrow on Uberturbine

    Upgrade to 265/30/20 and enjoy the OEM rims. 1. Will 265s stick out far enough that their protective lip will save the whees, and end curb rash exposure? 2. I am partial to Michelins for their superior handling of my other cars. Will that be the case for 265s on the Tesla? 3. Any idea what I...

    Tires too narrow on Uberturbine

    I hope to gain what every manufacturer of every sporty vehicle is aiming for: lower energy consumption, better handling through less unsprung weight. Besides, I have never encountered a sports car manufacturer who has designed undersized tires for their rims.

    Tires too narrow on Uberturbine

    There was a thread some time ago that explained the reasoning for this screwed-up combo of too wide a wheel and too narrow a tire. Can I switch to a Tesla-approved Michelin 245, whose protective tire lip will protrude enough beyond the rim?

    Tires too narrow on Uberturbine

    I am very happy with the sidewall damping/overall response of 20" wheels, but want to shave off unsprung weight.

    Tires too narrow on Uberturbine

    Thank you. That brings up another question I had planned to post separately: I don't mind the 20" size but the godawful weight of the Uberturbines. Ist there a 20" replacement that will fit my car, retaining the same wheel spacing/offset and usable with the stock tire width (235/35/20) but at...

    Tires too narrow on Uberturbine

    The protective lip on the Pirellis of my 2021 M3P does not stick out far enough to protect the edge of the Uberturbines from curb rash. I remember there was a thread on TMC on this mismatch, and a possible solution. Can someone point me to it? Thanks, C

    Battery Replacement under Warranty: What is the Current Model of my Battery?

    . Indeed, physics could not be overcome, and. lower capacity battery would not give me that range prediction @100% charge. I also will twist my body and arms and iPhone to take that picture. Thank you for your thorough reply.

    Battery Replacement under Warranty: What is the Current Model of my Battery?

    According to the service tech, this is not a reduced capacity size battery to "prorate" and match my usage over the last 15 months, but a brand new stock battery as currently installed in all 2022 dual motor Model 3 versions. I have no explanation. Update: just talked to the service manager and...

    Battery Replacement under Warranty: What is the Current Model of my Battery?

    The plot thickens: The service advisor confirmed that I will get a brand new battery, but- wait! "it's a 75kwh battery like all our dual motor batteries are now". What? How do they reduce battery capacity, yet maintain the same 0-60 = 3.1 sec. performance specs, and 315 mile range? What...

    Battery Replacement under Warranty: What is the Current Model of my Battery?

    Yes, I saw your same response in another thread. I will insist on a solid answer before I drop the car off tomorrow. Whether it's the 79KWh or 82KWh battery pack, they should know and tell me, and they should tell me the maximum (remaining) capacity. No opaque responses accepted. Thank you.

    Battery Replacement under Warranty: What is the Current Model of my Battery?

    My 2021 M3P (11,000 miles) will get a new/reconditioned/whatever battery pack under warranty, due to severe loss of range overnight (down to 220 miles @90% charge) What is the model number of my battery pack? Because I am the lucky owner of the then-new 82KWh batteries that came out right...

    " Did you loose 10% as well? First thing to make sure is to use the 20” überturbines in the wheels menu." Uberturbines are correctly registered in wheels menu. I lost more than 15% in less than two weeks without any noticeable changes in charging or driving behavior. Routine 90% charge level...

    Range Loss Over Time, What Can Be Expected, Efficiency, How to Maintain Battery Health

    I have had my 2021 M3P for 15 months now, and put 10k miles on it. I use a level 2 Chargepoint charger in my garage (48A) and always charge to 80-90%, (82kWh battery) with the rare supercharging on long trips. I started sifting through the 226 pages of this thread, but have so far not come...

    Range Loss Over Time, What Can Be Expected, Efficiency, How to Maintain Battery Health

    The range for my 2021 MP3 last week suddenly and without any discernible changes in driving or charging habits dropped from 315 miles to 270 for 100% charge level and to 248m for 90% charge. Temps are above 50º now in my garage, which were in the mid 40s a week ago, when I still could charge to...

    Range Loss Over Time, What Can Be Expected, Efficiency, How to Maintain Battery Health

    Those responses are all fine and well, but explain this to me: Why does Telsa give a range of 315 miles, if it is absolutely impossible to achieve this, unless you enter and win a hypermiling contest? What is the point of deliberately disappointing the customer after the sale is made? A driving...

    A new Mercedes model with a 100kW/h battery drove 600 miles @ 140km/h (87m/h) on freeways from Stuttgart to the south of France, and had 15% charge left after it arrived (Mercedes Benz's new electric car drives 600 miles on just ONE charge). Yes, the car has 19 more kW hours than mine, is very...

    A CD player that works via USB - finally!!!

    I bought one of these, properly connected it to the USB port in the center console fo my 2021 M3, and it happily swallows and spits out commercial CDs, but I don't hear anything: What menu of the screen do I have to be in to activate this CD player?

    CD player for Tesla 3

    It can be quite tiring having to sift through snarky posts disrespecting the OP's sincere quest trying to play CDs in his Tesla. So with some trepidation I'd like to ask a similar question: Can I plug in my Apple stand-alone, USB-powered CD player and get audio out of the Model 3's speakers...

    Should track mode 100% regen be stronger than normal driving?

    So, bottom line which most responses seem to agree on: driving an M3P in Track Mode while not changing my driving style will not retain, let alone extend range, despite Track Mode's increased level of regeneration?

    Should track mode 100% regen be stronger than normal driving?

    ...and now that this thread is being resurrected, here is my question as a range miser, not race car driver: Would I make up the added amount of battery regeneration in track mode for the extra battery drain the track mode is said to pull out? If the net result is more range, due to higher...

    M3P: Why So Little Regenerative Braking?

    Setting levels of regen would be a great user option, but it is not available on 2021/22 models. Again, both cars I mentioned - MP3, MY Long Range - had identical charge level, time since last use and outside temps. The Model Y's level of regenerative braking was substantially larger, and felt...

    M3P: Why So Little Regenerative Braking?

    Sorry, but my question is still not answered: Compared to a current version MY, or even my 2020 Bolt, my M3P has mild regeneration under the best of circumstances. Has anyone else compared a newish MY's enormous regen braking power to the lame M3P? Is there a reason for the reduced regen on the...

    M3P: Why So Little Regenerative Braking?

    it doesnt feel significantly different to me, if the cars have been sitting the same amount of time in the garage and have similar battery fullness. That was the case in my test drive: both cars parked sitting next to each other in the same climate, had the relative same (mid-level) charge...

    Sentry Mode / Dash Cam Questions

    Dashcam on the other hand (if local storage exists and is configured properly) is always recording as long as the car is awake, other than specifically when you turn it off. The last hour of dashcam footage should always be there (if it's working) and this is where sentry moves the last 10...

    M3P: Why So Little Regenerative Braking?

    Today I drove my friend's brand-new (2022) Model Y (Dual Motors, not Performance). The regenerative braking in his car is significantly stronger compared to my 2021 MP3. It feels like I am hitting the brakes when I get off the gas. Is this normal? Is the regen braking in the Performance model...

    Keeping the lights on

    As soon as I exit the car to unlock my gate at night, the lights go out. Now I stumble in the dark trying to insert the key into the pad lock. How do I keep the lights on to illuminate this task?

    Holiday Update (2021.44.25.2)- A Big Disappointment
