    Tesla SSD coming February 2023

    Tesla removed data from those ports due parts shortage for my 2022. I did replace it with aftermarket module to re-enable data successfully. However, whatever the reason, it doesn't play nice with having TeslaCam and Music on two different Drives. I have to have it on a single drive with...

    Tesla SSD coming February 2023

    I've never had any Hub work reliably with both an SSD and Micro SD card in reader or thumbdrive. I have a 2022 Model 3, so it only has data port in Glovebox. I have not tried two thumb drives on a hub, maybe it's a power issue?

    Vendor Washer fluid recommendations for summer

    I use 20/10 Windshield Wiper concentrate. Works much better than that horrid blue stuff that was originally used when I picked up my Model 3. https://www.oreillyauto.com/detail/c/20-10-products/20-10-products-windshield-washer-fluid/ttv0/qt?q=wiper+fluid&pos=4

    Mine goes from "Hmmm, seems kinda warm" to "Yikes, too hot, gotta turn it off" in about 3 minutes.

    Rear seat rattle - How to fix?

    My 2022 M3LR (picked up March 2022) has this same seat rattling. SC fixed it mostly, but it's starting to return. Seems like a defect in the design. Hopefully someone figures out a more permanent solution.

    The perfect Model 3 emergency jack?

    Anyone have pics of how and where to jack up a Model 3 from the Lower Control Arm as the OP says?

    CCS Adapter for North America

    Does the locking pin have a plastic or rubber tip? It looks like it gouges / marks up the plastic of the charging port face in all the videos and pics I've seen.

    2022 Model Y - USB Data Ports - USB-A Glovebox Only

    Of course there's still the problem of current Tesla firmware not able to have Two USB data drives working at the same time..........sigh.

    No 2022 Model 3 CVRP Rebate

    No 2022 Model 3 CVRP Rebate

    What do they mean by "Base MSRP"? I ordered my 22 Model 3 LR in November 2021, and picked it up March 5, 2022. Does this mean that only Model 3 Long Range is not qualified because it's different than SR+ (Now Rear Wheel Drive).? It was $50,990 when I ordered it.

    Navigation is annoying

    Google Maps has had "Alerts" only mode (for audio) in addition to Mute for a long time. Wish that Tesla Navigation would have this mode as well.

    Auto Detailer recommendations in South Bay area Los Angeles?

    Prefer one that is not mobile as I live in a Condo area with shared outdoor parking. Don't need concours level detailing, but a 2-3 times a year thorough exterior detailing like removing surface contaminants, etc. Minor paint correction if necessary. I normally hand wash my car at a coin...

    Best Credit Union around Los Angeles?

    I've financed a few cars through JACOM Credit Union, including my 2022 M3 LR. They've always been 1.9% for 80% 60 months. Bonus that they have physical location in Los Angeles area. (West LA, near Culver City is their main branch) https://www.jacomcu.org/Jacomcu_Rates_Loans.html

    Music USB

    I found it much easier to use pry tools to pop the top of the panel first, then use the TPARTS tool for the bottom. Be careful and inspect the metal clips before pushing the panel back on, as I had one just push through it's hole and fall into the console, never to be found again.

    2022 Model Y - USB Data Ports - USB-A Glovebox Only

    Probably. But I have the opposite problem. Dashcam works just fine, but I get Loading Error for Music Drive after my 2022 M3 wakes up. A reboot fixes it. but annoying to have to do that with each start up.

    2022 Model Y - USB Data Ports - USB-A Glovebox Only

    Spoke too soon. I get Loading Error for my Samsung T5 today after waking my 2022 Model 3 LR up. It requires a reboot to get it to be recognized. Really wish Tesla hadn't removed USB Data from the center console. Yet another reminder how flawed this car is on the inside. Love and hate the...

    2022 Model Y - USB Data Ports - USB-A Glovebox Only

    Ordered and installed TPARTS data module. Removing the panel was not that difficult, as I have numerous pry tools. Putting it back was more difficult, as one of the metal clips in the bottom just pushed through the hole and fell into the car never to be found again. I have an extending magnet...

    Dealer markups drove me to buy a Tesla

    I tried really hard not to buy a Tesla, but the insane car market this year made the decision to buy a Model 3 LR very easy. I just had to wait a couple of months. When people balk at the price now, I just tell them I bought a $30K car and paid for the equivalent of 10 years worth of gas up...

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

    Just got a new 2022 Model 3 LR AWD about 2 weeks ago. My rear view camera image is black. It came back one time, but now it has been out all day. I've made a Service Appt, but I guess I have to live without Rear view camera for over a month since my Appt isn't until April 30th. Sigh, just...

    California DMV - Plates & HOV Stickers

    California DMV - Plates & HOV Stickers

    Quick question. I've seen a lot of the 1960 Classic plate (Yellow on Black/ Brown) that have this configurations X999Y9. Where it starts with a letter, then 3 numbers, a letter, and then ends with one number. Normally plates are 9XXX999. Where it's sequential (all plates in a given period...

    Model 3 performance new 18 inch wheel option now avail 7/15/19

    I find it hard to believe that the M3P- without the 20" Performance tires will have the same 0-60 as the M3P+ with.
  40. E

    Would you rather....

    Yeah, if it were just extra range it would a tougher decision. But the extra performance and Better audio system on top of it really tilts my opinion in favor of LR AWD.
  41. E

    Would you rather....

    Yeah, the price drop really made the choice difficult. Before it, I was leaning towards SR+. I guess that's why they dropped the prices the way they did. Clever, clever.....
  42. E

    Would you rather....

    Buy a new M3 SR+ with FSD for $44,990? or... Buy a new M3 LR AWD without FSD for $47,990? The latest price drop make the decision more difficult. I live in Los Angeles, don't have home charging available yet ( I live in a condo with dedicated outdoor parking spot, no outlets, I'd have to pay...

    Pearl White Standard Paint?

    Which means it's not actually available until there is more funding? So say I order a Model 3 right now, will I be able to apply for the rebate at a future date?

    Pearl White Standard Paint?

    Isn't the California EV Rebate all gone until they get more funding? It's not possible to get on a wait list until they get more funding possibly later this year.

    Electric "Tingle" on Silver Exterior Trim While Level 1 Charging

    Thankfully it's just a tingle. An electric zap is very painful and unpleasant at best. Do you have a multimeter so you can check?
