    Received mine for a Model 3 MR purchased in Feb 2019. $514. It will go down a bit each year for a few years as it depreciates.

    Free unlimited supercharging vs (paying for) installing charger at home...

    Here's a short version of what I did (my "experience") since getting our MR 3 in Feb. First EV so it was a learning experience. My wife has free charging at work (Chargepoint stations). However, seems like lots of people actually count on charging at work since many are commuting from far...

    Sentry Mode Catches Hit in Parking Lot

    Actually, I just had mine replaced at the Tesla body shop in San Jose a little over a week ago (also bumped in the parking lot which punctured the bumper cover, but no video so I had to pay deductible). It was $1300. Difference likely due to high cost of labor for my area. Called on Monday...

    M3 Steering Wheel off-center

    Our car has a steering wheel that is cock-eyed by 5 deg when going straight. It is at the SC now in Santa Clara, and they told my wife that "it won't be straight" because it's not "hydraulic steering". I'm calling BS. So this thread is helpful.
