    Nice! What tint % do you have all around?

    Traded my M3P for an RS3 - My thoughts on both cars for what it's worth

    Nice Audi man. Out of all the dealerships I went to for a quote on my '21 M3P, Audi offered me the most so I respect them a lot more. While I was waiting at their showroom, I can't help but notice how nice the interiors are on some of their cars. For a second it almost made me want to buy an...

    Help me finalize color choice! Blue vs White vs Red

    Sorry but you have no taste. White is most popular color for a reason on any car.

    Help me finalize color choice! Blue vs White vs Red

    Don’t second guess yourself on white. Red is a girl color. Not the right red. You’ll love white. I own 2019 m3 white on white and guess what. I traded for 21 white on white again. White is not a “safe” color many people like to use. It just goes well with the black trim, black wheels and tint...

    Help me finalize color choice! Blue vs White vs Red

    MSM is my least favorite color for the sole fact the color looks like every Toyota RAV 4 on the street or every Toyota Camry. It’s probably the popular choice for newbie car buyers but once you own few grey cars you get tired of it. Scratches are noticeable, paint chips are noticeable, did I...

    Help me finalize color choice! Blue vs White vs Red

    There’s a reason why everyone and their moms get white. Blue is too dark, it’s just not the right shade. When dirty it doesn’t look good. Red is also wrong shade, more like candy apple you see on wheels that somehow doesn’t fit with the whole car theme. It’s also a girl color. White on white or...

    PPF Seamline Normal?

    Also, I like the fog light trim. Where did you get it from?

    PPF Seamline Normal?

    If it bothers you, you can ask them to redo. It’s the only solution but I will say it’s normal. They use a cutter to precut the film and stretch it best as possible. I just know my 2019 model 3 had film up to the seam and after several washes it would peel and collect dirt. On a white car like...

    PPF Seamline Normal?

    I’d say it’s normal. The hood should definitely be bulk and for bumper should be precut because of risk of using razor to cut into paint more likely with bulk. If the seams underneath the headlights go any higher it will actually peel due to the curve near the headlight seam. Over time it will...

    Model 3 Tires, Tire Sizes, Types, make / model recommendations, tire discussions, etc

    Thanks! I have a feeling most tire shops won’t touch this except mom and pop shops might plug it. I’m going to yank it out tomorrow and see if it went all the way through, plug it up if needed, and see if my Tsportline 1st year tire protection plan covers this.

    Model 3 Tires, Tire Sizes, Types, make / model recommendations, tire discussions, etc

    Just saw a nail on my tire while I was inflating them. Can anyone tell me if this is pluggable? 3k miles, not leaking air. Or would it be better to buy a new tire at this point.

    2021 M3P Range

    I get 220-230 wh/mi on my 2021 M3P with TSportline 18 TST wheels. At first I was averaging 300 wh/mi UNTIL I break in my tires. After 1500 miles with the new tires I average 220-230. Can’t stress enough that you won’t see the range benefit until you break in the tires after 1k driving.

    I don’t even recommend this. As another thread mentions these tend to dent your subframe. Get the aluminum pucks.

    Error message :Maximum battery charge level reduced. Unable to charge battery to 100%

    I had the same issue last year when pandemic started and not many people were coming to get their cars service. Took them 2 business days. Dropped off Friday and was ready on Monday for pick up.

    2021 Performance Model 3. Poll Red or White ?

    The grey color reminds me of every Toyota Rav 4 or beat up Toyota Camry you see out in the roads. Blue shade is wrong too, too dark, and show scratches and rock chips easily. White hands down!

    2021 Performance Model 3. Poll Red or White ?

    White is the best color, follow by red. Red is the wrong shade of red IMO, it’s almost like candy apple red. White is very classy and clean. You can’t go wrong with either but white would be my choice. There’s probably a reason why not many drives red, as another poster mentions looks good on a...

    Ceramic Exterior Coating

    No I meant snake oil as in it’s a scam. The amount of money they charged usually over 1k -2k for the whole car is ludicrous. Get a dual action buffer like a cheap griot garage with an orange pad and HD All In One polish, clay the car, and apply Cquartz 3.0 ceramic coating, and all this takes a...

    Put T emblem back on after PPF or no ?

    I bet a lot of people will disagree with you about the tesla lettering on the back vs the T logo. That’s the second worst mod behind those folks who like to black out their A pillars to look like Maximas.

    Michelin Pilot Sport 4S vs. Pilot Sport All Season 4 for 19"

    The designated tesla ones “TO” might be slight range improvement but nope you can still use the non tesla spicific designated tire. 4S is the best tire right now for tesla if you live in warm climates.

    Model 3 trade to Refreshed Model S poll….

    How the heck are you getting 51.8 for same thing I traded in 2 months ago for 44.3k. Are you counting trade in sales tax credit too? Kind of hard to believe it would jump up by 5k in couple months lol.

    Aftermarket Wheels on Model 3

    If your looking for range neither, I would go with TSportline tst 18 wheels. There some YouTube videos where the Martian wheels didn’t really improve range much compare to the aero or even TSportline. If you want my opinion on either one go with 8.5 since range doesn’t matter much to you. But...

    I’d put it back. If you one day change your mind can always get floss and remove it.

    Acceptable XPEL XR Plus Install?

    Well your first problem is they installed 3M on the back instead of what you paid for. And no the tint on the windshield and back are not acceptable, too many contaminants. I understand if few dirt nibs here and there as no tint is perfect but hair in tint or in PPF in general is not industry...

    It’s good we all have different opinions. I came from a LR to an M3P, so it’s interesting to hear different perspective from M3P owners.

    and 18s don’t even look that bad! 19s and 20s looks real good but honestly the 18s don’t even look all that bad. You get better range vs 19/20s, comfortable suspension, and ideally your car is slightly faster due to reduce unsprung mass. Sorry I don’t have a better picture but just wanted to...

    Lug nuts

    Those satin black wheels are a pita to keep swirl free and clean. Don’t use compound on them like I did or it creates a shiny sheen on the spokes. If you ever needed to repaint your wheels I know the perfect can of paint for this color (satin black). Also smart of you to use that socket from...

    Exterior detailing question

    I don’t see why you can’t use any of the turtle wax hybrid solutions line on your PPF. I just recently applied TW graphene flex wax and seal and shine as a second coat on the PPF and no issues.

    Model 3 Performance '21 suddenly doubled energy consumption

    Most people with M3P knows in advance that they will likely need to buy another set of wheels anyways due to how easy it is to get a flat/crack with the 20 wheel/tire combo. I owned a ‘19 LR with acceleration boost and the difference is night and day so I always regret to buy LR. I never use the...

    Windshield Cleaning

    If it’s windshield from inside the car it could possibly be stuff like 303 or other chemicals on dash, plastic. When it gets hot outside that stuff evaporates into your windshield as a thin greasy film. I suggest cleaning inside the windshield using rubbing alcohol only and use less chemical...
