    How can I install flashing/strobing brake lights ?

    I see folks using this product in CA all the time. It can be attached to the "hitch" area of your rear. https://www.amazon.com/iJDMTOY-Tow-Receiver-Brake-Hole/dp/B07VKFZ6M3

    Cloud Profile Settings not the same in M3 v MY

    As a follow up - unfortunately, doing the seat and mirror calibration on both vehicles has not worked. I have to change it to my non cloud profile to get my seat positions correct. booo

    Cloud Profile Settings not the same in M3 v MY

    Odd thing happening with my cloud profile for settings. My main car is M3 and I have my cloud settings all set up. When i drive our MY, it picks up my cloud account but the seat settings are way off. Any idea how to remedy this? Since i have the manual profile still saved in the MY, i have to...

    Service Mode- What can I do with it?

    Not sure this is accurate. I was at a non tesla body shop for ... body repairs.. when the tech who took in my car put it in service mode as I stood there.

    Sunshade Melting Fastrak Transponder Glue

    You can always get the sticker transponder in lieu of that big block of a thing that is out there. Much better and i've had more trouble getting it off myself than for the sun to melt it. If you're really into the blocky transponder, then get some 3M brand.. i'm sure amazon has it.

    2017-2020 Model 3 recalled for trunk/rear camera issue

    Don't worry. The recall has nothing to do with your warranty. Warranty or not - a recall is free replacement of a defect.

    Mercedes EQE SUV spotted

    TBH the sedan looks very much like a honda civic. so ugly.

    Software update - Stuck on last check date

    Finally received an 16.1.2 yesterday despite the date issue. Very odd behavior. Tesla keeps us on our toes. :)

    CarMax sold me a broken model 3?

    Doesn't CarMax have a 7 day return policy? That car would have been returned the same day if it were me.. literally would have turned around and gone back soon as the error came up. That's way too much drama to buy a car.

    Software update - Stuck on last check date

    The odd thing is that our MY does not have that issue whatsoever. It updated to 2022.16.1.1 last night and never got stuck on previous dates. Very weird behavior since my M3 is still stuck.

    Software update - Stuck on last check date

    Yeah, i've done the same where you navigate from the tab.. then back to the software screen to force it to re check... but nothing. I'll just chill LOL thank you

    Software update - Stuck on last check date

    I searched the forums but didn't find anything specific to my question. My car settings are set to "advanced" and it states that the last check for updates was on June 2. No matter what I do, it will not check for updates and stamp it checked with current date. It's stuck on June 2. I've done...

    Sentry missed M3 trunk vandalism event

    Annnnd this is why i back into my space up to the wall so that nobody can even get behind my car. I don't think the rear camera activates sentry so if the side cams don't catch the movement then you're just screwed. Perhaps Tesla can activate the feature with the read camera?

    Black Model 3s. Tint or no tint? Anybody have pics?

    Black Mamba is totally blacked out and I love it. I wouldn't have it any other way.

    Calling all owners of a Black Model 3 ( Black Knights) Build Thread...

    Owning a black car in CA is terrible to deal with. I use "wash wax" after the car wash and it seems to keep the junk off a little longer.

    You must drive like a 90 year old senior apparently. LOL What a joke. Glad CA is not allowing the scoring.

    My b/f is 6'4" and is uncomfortable in my M3... he bought a MY and loves it. He can fit much better.

    Glare from side repeaters in blind spot camera?

    I've taken a look through but it's hard to understand whether this is covered by warranty or if this is an out of pocket expense to replace the cameras that glare from the turn signals?

    Car Scent/Air Freshener ?

    My English Bulldog rides with me and she's.... a little smelly... to say the least. I no longer smell DOG. It's not overly strong either and more is an eliminator but leaves a pleasant new car smell. Its really important to air the car out after the 15 mins that the mist is deployed but just...

    CA Waiting Room

    Totally agree regarding this forum. I told my friend that if he has questions about his Tesla or how to etc etc that joining this forum is a must or he's gonna miss out on important things. hahahahaha I've learned everything I know about Tesla from this forum. I am super thankful for its existence.

    CA Waiting Room

    Yes, you must be correct because they called today to say there is a car that matches my config and if the person does not take delivery by EOD they will assign it to me for an Irvine pick up. I'm in HB so i am thinking you're right about that CM sales center.

    CA Waiting Room

    Same. Ordered Aug 2021 for delivery in Jan. Was pushed to March and now to June 2022. Called the Costa Mesa sales center and they were really confused to as why it was pushed to June and said they will look into it. Very frustrating to get different answers each time I call and to have no idea...

    FedEx lost my Tesla Shop order, and no response from Tesla

    Control arm under warranty? [when over 50k miles on car]

    ouch. could be worse i guess. I made an appt for service in an unrelated issue but i'm going to have them check my control arms and 12v battery to be sure everything is ok before my warranty ends.

    Control arm under warranty? [when over 50k miles on car]

    What are the price quotes for out of warranty fixes for these control arm issues? I'm coming up on my warranty end and terrified by the control arm and 12v issues people are having. Lets not mention my tires are wore out after 20k.

    Closer following distance with new SW update [teslavision radarless model 3]

    Totally worth it. That's a good price! Huge change if your car is black.

    Funny story re: red light racing

    My fav is to watch them try to race me but then I intentionally keep my nose even with theirs as they're floored, meanwhile I'm just feathering the acceleration not giving them what Tesla has "under the hood" so to speak. Love it!

    Vehicle Placement on Screen

    Makes me freak out all the time. I have the same "issue". Since we have no blind spot indicator, i use the screen to show me as if there is a car in my blind spot only for it to show me a car another lane over which causes me to swerve around trying to not hit a car that isn't there.

    HOV use - Fast Trak in California

    for what it's worth. I have the 91 toll sticker AND transponder (that i asked for). Was told to always keep it on 1 and i'll get the better of the deal if both are used. I have never had to pay for tolls on the 91 using this method. Zero cost minus the deposit loaded onto the account for when i...
