    FS: OEM 2022 Model 3 Performance Suspension

    Thanks for the reply, I was hoping they'd be the new "comfort" suspension (10/22 and later) I'd really like to get my hands on the dampers and see what all was changed. Good luck!

    Horrendous brake feel

    I agree with Occhis, mine was absolutely noticeable immediately and has been one of my favorite mods to the car so far ('21 M3LR). The MPP instructions are possibly a little too conservative on how much the brace should be touching the master cylinder:

    ABS pulsating with new winter tires

    I had not! Thank you much for the recommendation. I had skimmed the manual and thought it was only for regen, but I'll try it out and report back! That'll teach me to RTFM. :cool:

    Horrendous brake feel

    I'd advise anyone who is looking to upgrade the feel of their brakes to check out the MPP Brake Booster Brace. I've run mine for over a year and its a night and day difference. Quick and easy install, immediate gratification. I also firmly believe the issues we hear about with folks needing to...

    ABS pulsating with new winter tires

    Hello everyone, I'm hoping someone can shed some light on what I'm experiencing; I've got a '21 model 3 running the stock aeros and recently (within 2 weeks) put on a new set of Hakkapeliitta R5's in the stock size. Now I'm noticing that when I press the brake pedal moderately (not standing on...

    Adventures in Model 3

    It's one of those "I'll add it eventually" mods I plan on doing, if nothing else to hopefully avoid tearing something up when I (or autopilot) inevitability runs over a crappy semi tire re-tread that has come off and is lying in the middle of the freeway... :rolleyes:

    Adventures in Model 3

    They have a metal skid plate as well that might be helpful.

    M3 lowering

    For those of you with springs, is it riding the bump stops all day, every day? Seems like the stock suspension config is hitting the bump stops entirely too much for my liking, I cant imagine how it is with less travel from lowering springs.

    Aftermarket (amazon) carbon fiber rear spoiler

    You and me both! I will say, based on the design of the spoiler (in theory) the downforce should be exerted mainly on the tapped portion, as when the air travels over the cabin, hitting the trunk lid the spoiler should act a bit like a cantilever "pushing" the tapped portion up against the...

    Aftermarket (amazon) carbon fiber rear spoiler

    Very nice! Yours looks like it has excellent fitment as well! I'd wager they're produced by the same folks. Can you tell me how long you've had yours? My only real concern is how long it will last before it cracks or fades.

    Removing front bumper

    I have been interested in doing this as well, however if you read most of the posts over on RDforums unless you are a body technician with a dark colored car there really arent any good places to mount tx/rx heads. How do you plan on integrating them? Unless you are not going for stealth, which...

    Aftermarket (amazon) carbon fiber rear spoiler

    Hello TMC, I just finished mounting my Amazon CF rear deck lid spoiler and I thought I would make a quick post about my experience. A few weeks ago I purchased this guy (full disclosure, I didn't actually spend any money on it, I buy a lot of stuff from Amazon for my company and get mad points)...

    FS: Unplugged Performance Model 3 Coilovers AWD Performance

    Can you tell us any more about the history of these? I've been thinking about picking up some coilovers, but am kind of on the fence, just barely have 1,000 miles on the stock suspension.

    Salvaged Tesla with no Keys

    If I ever want anything done from a vendor or client I bring donuts and automagically all the laziness, resentment and unwillingness seem temporarily cured.

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

    I understand tires arent sexy, and that financial circumstances differ and change, but I might suggest; tires are not the place to skimp and go low budget. Think about it, your tires are the only thing on your expensive car that actually come in contact with the road surface (in an ideal work 🙃...

    My poor baby, someone rear ended me, anyone know what to expect in cost and time?

    Doesnt matter. File a claim with your insurance, make them do the leg work. If their insured (you) is not at fault (you weren't) there is no way in hell they are going to accept and pay out the loss, especially at the Tesla rates. They have plenty of people who handle just this and nothing more...

    Sway Bar Issues?

    That is awesome! Thanks for sharing, I cant believe I haven't heard of these before. It makes perfect sense, one of those "why didnt I think of that" types things.
  21. yeahthatguy

    Sway Bar Issues?

    Man, this thing looks awesome! I've never heard of these before. So my understanding is that its basically a couple transmitters + amplifier that you attach to different points on the vehicle, drive around and isolate the area via which ever transmitter had the highest dB?

    Game controllers not recognized

    Alright, so I finally had a chance to test and I can say that my PowerA Enchanced Wired Controller and this Belkin USB C to Micro USB cable ARE WORKING on my '21 M3 running 2021.4.15. However, there are a few caveats: 1. I've only been able to play 50% of the games, the others are "waiting to...

    Anyone bought the screen swivel from Teslamize on Ebay?

    Interesting. I have been wanting something like this but wasnt too keen on the available options. FYI looks like 2021 + MY are still pre-order. Curious to see how they look/work in the wild.

    Cell problems

    Well I have Verizon and I get garbage service everywhere so you are doing better than me there. :-) Now, I do know, from speaking directly with Verizon level 2 techs yesterday (regarding some VOIP to POTS handoff's failing), there was an outage in the Seattle metro area yesterday morning...

    How to enable additional users to access your Tesla

    Interesting! I admittedly didn't look for road side vs. regular service but that seems counterintuitive; unlikely a secondary driver is going to schedule and accept a bunch of electrical work (or what have you) but could definitely need a flat repair...

    How to enable additional users to access your Tesla

    So interesting observation with my recent delivery; my wife was the initial "shopper" when we first looked at Tesla, went to a local showroom, did a test drive and I went to the mens room while my wife proceeded to close the deal. They took all of her info (name, phone number, etc) and away we...

    PSA - Referral Link May Not Work in Safari Anymore

    I purchased via a local showroom and only texted my SA about 48hrs prior to delivery (after getting a VIN) and gave her the last section of the referral code I used (NAME1234...) and it all worked out just fine. Seems easier for all involved that way.

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    quick update here: tesla home delivery dropped it off about 10am. Guy was very nice and helpful, wanted to show me a bunch of different stuff (little did he know I've only had 2 months to consume everything there is to read about it). Its overcast with on and off light rain so its hard to give...

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    I wouldn't be, took Tesla ~72hrs to get in touch with us regarding delivery, and that was only to move delivery up from what was shown on the site.

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    has the covid19 situation affected how much you drive? my wife and I just put the 3 on our insurance, and it raised our premiums like 20$ a month compared to our previous car (2 cars + homeowners, credit cards and personal property through USAA) however we noticed our annual driving estimates...

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    A 3/19 order submittal is pretty late in the run but I'd bet you'll get your car soon. They've got another 5 days to build em.

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    Admittedly I was a bit surprised too as I fully expected each person to need to sign for delivery. But my SC and the experiences on reddit seem to indicate its much more of an "amazon" experience, where they drop it and take off.
  37. yeahthatguy

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    thats my understanding. I've never used them myself, but have heard good things.

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    So I was told (just a few hours ago) by my SC that they dont really care who is present at home delivery as they person delivering the car might not even ring the door bell. All of our documentation is digital and simply click the buttons and its yours.
  41. yeahthatguy

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    I've spoken with my SC twice and a SA on this and here is what I know: They are doing home delivery to any address within 20-25 miles of the delivery SC Its because they are simply too swamped at the SC and cant adhere to social distancing and all that. My SC said he is literally out of...

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    Also got the text this morning. Looks like we're being forced into home delivery, supposedly on Monday, 3/29. Still going to see if I can pick it up from the SC earlier. edit: called the SC, they show my car actually arriving on Sunday, so more than likely Monday is what its going to be...

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    It was entirely unnecessary as most "holier than thou" power trips are. Without getting too deep into the weeds, I've worked IT for a long time, used to work for a few very well known software companies in the bay area and was heavily involved in bimmerforums by virtue of being an e36 track rat...

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    Funny story there, this is one of my nom's de guerre after I had an absolutely awful experience with the ownership/moderation of this site. Apparently my legal last name is too vulgar to be included in my member username, even though the DMV gave me a vanity plate with it and every other service...

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    I decided to go ambush my SA at the showroom. Was told that my car was produced TODAY and that it should hopefully be trailered up this evening. Will be getting the delivery text tomorrow or Friday. The showroom confirmed I will be receiving it via home delivery "within the next 5 days or so..."

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    2/7, white/black/18's, no FSD, I'm think I'm quickly becoming one of the oldest "no VIN" reservations in this thread. maybe if I complain enough a vin will automagically appear! seems like others have gotten lucky talking crap than boom VIN.
