    Would you? (add 20" factory wheels)

    Just to site actual facts not about facts - My P3 has a lifetime average of 298 wh/mi with 17,000 miles on the clock with the factory 20" in the summer and after market 20" in the winter with winter tires. Most of the driving is local with 30% being on the interstate. There is no measurable...

    Free 2 Years Supercharge?

    Never heard that offer. The understanding was take in inventory vehicle before the end of Q3 and get up to 2 upgrades free (interior, wheels, paint, or free charging for 2 yrs) This was at least rumor which was eventually corrected by Corp. Tesla but not before a bunch of people jumped on it...

    What should I expect from the Tesla Service Center?

    Sorry but Volvo, Subaru and Toyota have always been very responsive to me, calling Tesla lacking is an understatement and no where near “par for the course”. Volvo has even taken care of issues after the warranty was over without me even asking them to cover the cost or assist, stating it’s...

    What should I expect from the Tesla Service Center?

    Glen Allen isn't much better. The mobile unit did resolve all my fit and finish issues but the Glen Allen staff rarely return a phone call, so stay on the line until you actually are done.

    Is "Liquid Metal" a legitimate wheel manufacturer?

    Discount Tire will ship you the correct ring, did you call them?

    3 or Y

    I am positive you would get a different response in the Y community. So since you posted your question here, for no other reason get the 3.

    Is "Liquid Metal" a legitimate wheel manufacturer?

    The tires I got were 235/35 ZR 20 I was a little worried about loss of range so I went with the standard tire size especially since the tires I purchased were not "eco" tires. They look a little stretched and I probably would have gone with a 245 if I was to do it over again since they leave...

    2 Chargers with M3?

    Used Tesla Model S/X/3 UMC Gen 1 Mobile Connector Charger oem 40 amp | eBay If you haven’t found one yet, 2 are listed at a low price now.

    2 Chargers with M3?

    Any Gen1 under $225 with shipping is worth it. Max I would pay is $250 which is still 1/2 the price of the Wall Connector and the Gen1 is only 8 amps less than the wall connector too.

    2 Chargers with M3?

    Sorry can’t PM you - Tesla Gen 1 Mobile Connector 40 Amp | eBay This one is currently $180 not the lowest I have seen, but who knows.

    2 Chargers with M3?

    It took me 6 weeks of careful watching. If I find one, I will PM you.

    2 Chargers with M3?

    You are better off getting a Gen1 from eBay for that charges at 40 amps it’s the best cheapest option. Make sure it has the plug adapters you need since adapters can be expensive. I picked one up for $180 that included a 14-50 and 5-20 plug.

    Is "Liquid Metal" a legitimate wheel manufacturer?

    I would like to get Tesla center caps for them. I haven’t popped a center off to see what size they are.

    Is "Liquid Metal" a legitimate wheel manufacturer?

    I got the 20x8.5 with A/S tires since I don’t travel often in the snow and have a Jeep CJ7 for deep snow. Strangely enough, I have been getting better Wh/mile since I changed. I am not sure if it’s because of the break in period of the car with the factory 20” wheels or new lighter wheels with...

    Tires sizing for 3P+

    My fault the title is ... Tires sizing for 3P+ You can see how I could be confused, thanks for contributing and monitoring this thread.

    Tires sizing for 3P+

    T Sportline said 275/30-20 would work on the rear with 20”x10” - I have not seen anyone with anything larger than 245/35-20 on the front.

    Help me decide Stealth vs P3D+

    Most of what you said is exactly correct. Things have changed in mid 2019 chose to not believe it. I never disputed that the early LR and Basic Performance models were all the same, but the P we also very expensive. The software unlock people are right it could have been down then. If LR and P...

    My apologies, English is not my mother tongue. Insider knowledge, not really not anymore, the person I knew left a few months ago. I am not on here to convince anyone of anything, everyone has their own opinion. Based on what I have received from people that I actually know, I based my...

    Tires sizing for 3P+

    I was considering the staggered setup to combat the “drift effect” with 275/30-20 on the rear. I am glad to hear from people with first hand knowledge of track response with different setups.

    Exactly - throw something about warranty in there as well and it is a perfect wrap up for this thread.

    Help me decide Stealth vs P3D+

    Once again I actually talked to people at Tesla - the P3D- was more of an accident based on production factors than a hidden special option. I am sure everyone that has one is happy. I am still confused why everyone is so hyper sensitive on this topic. I have said and will always say the Rear...

    Help me decide Stealth vs P3D+

    Honestly I am not sure why I even engaged in this conversation since everyone wants to base their fact on what was and not what is right now. Since we are talking about things that make no sense, I am sure everyone will get the LR unlocked with an OTA update to Performance mode since they are...

    Keep ‘18 LR RWD with FSD or upgrade to P3D - sleeper with no FSD

    You have the best 3 made, why would you give it away? This is coming from a person that purchased a P3D+. If the Rear Wheel LR was available, I would have picked it over all of them, with that said, I am happy going really fast too. The P3D- is a pretend track car that is only good for red...

    Help me decide Stealth vs P3D+

    Everyone knows you get more bang for your buck, when you do it yourself. I was more concerned about the things you can’t change, the extras were just a very expensive bonus. I had many conversations with people at Tesla going back to early January 2019 before I purchased in September 2019. My...

    Help me decide Stealth vs P3D+

    You are taking this way too personally, I am a person that grew up around performance cars and race teams. Some performance upgrades actually make a car slightly slower from 0-60, like a heavier big brake kit. More weight = slower. What they actually do is allow you to drive faster longer...

    Help me decide Stealth vs P3D+

    Exactly they don’t see a need to explain since it will only drive more questions and may impact sales. The basic Performance is more of a mutant than anything. Perfect for red light displays of superiority but nothing more (not a bad thing since that’s what most P3D+ do but ever so slightly...

    Help me decide Stealth vs P3D+

    Sorry wasn’t being literal, I believe Tesla employees are not exactly sure what they are saying and they are clearly not on the same page about anything. It is a fact that all auto manufacturers scale driveline parts to the most cost effective option and sometimes less capable version get more...

    Model 3: tow a boat out of the water from a ramp

    I haven’t pulled a boat but I have pulled a trailer that is about 480kg and parked on an incline without an issue. The parking brake is set when you press the button. You may want to set it to chill mode and I am not sure if creep or whatever the new mode is called would be better. My guess...

    Help me decide Stealth vs P3D+

    Alternative facts, lies . whatever you want to call it. Although with the vin code change, it may be true things are different now. I am pretty sure the Performance and LR were the same at one point early on minus the extras to save on manufacturing costs, but as production grows, it’s cheaper...

    Help me decide Stealth vs P3D+

    When I was purchasing I checked with my insurance company and there was 0 difference in the cost of insurance from the 3D and P3D or even the SR+ I also had the option of the P3D- when I was buying and decided not to go with it. There are several reasons why, some ascetics but mostly because...

    Is "Liquid Metal" a legitimate wheel manufacturer?

    So a few things. The aluminum rings do not have a deep enough bevel to clear the Performance hub lip, but should be fine for the LR version. Year old tires are fine, just double check the date code. And last, yes about the lug nuts. I have a special 13/16 socket and even with the outer...

    Is "Liquid Metal" a legitimate wheel manufacturer?

    I have them and bought them specifically for winter. The are fine no complaints on my P3D+ A few things ... They need hub rings and the plastic ones they send are fine. I am going to have aluminum ones cut to fit the hub lip on the Performance 3 next season but no spacer is needed to...

    Early M3P purchases

    As this thread annoys me and I haven’t read all of it. If someone hasn’t already made the point, everyone that has an iPhone X and payed $800 for it and it now worth $100 should be mad as well. GSA contracts now give them away for free to government agency’s. You still get updates on your...

    Need suggestions for all season tire and wheel setup for model 3 performance model?

    Unless you are charging your P to 100% you are also missing the point, plus you are never getting the performance you payed for as well. Go ahead and charge to 100% everyday... Just because I can run fast doesn’t mean I should wear running shoes all the time. There is a time and place for...

    Need suggestions for all season tire and wheel setup for model 3 performance model?

    What? What would you like everyone to do when the temperature is sub 40F/4C - let their tires explode from crackling when it gets in the teens? I can run A/S tires on 20" for 4 months out of the year and not cry about it.

    Need suggestions for all season tire and wheel setup for model 3 performance model?

    I have built the cheapest All Season set I could and it was $1100 all in and shipped at Discount Tire. So if you want a "nice" set you are looking at $2200+. I am banking on keeping them on for 4 months a year, so i didnt want to to go crazy or put a nice set on.

    Free 2 Years Supercharge?

    So I just need to get my facts correct before I press my SC. I was told by my sales associate that called me on September 10th that they didn’t have the exact car I wanted (Gray/Black P3D+), but had a White/White P3D+ and they would credit me for the white interior and give me 2 years free...

    How reliable is the delivery window? Will the federal tax credit apply if delivery is in 2020

    I think everyone glossed over a few important things here. The tax credit is a fixed date, you must take delivery in 2019. Already addressed ... More importantly, you never want to take delivery where you feel pressured to take the car. You need to be prepared to walk away if there are...
