    [FS][San Diego]TAPTES 15W Tesla Model 3 Wireless Charger*NEW*

    Got an extra one - I ordered one from Taptes directy, shipped from China. After almost a month and tracking number not updating, I decided to bite the bullet and paid extra and got it from Amazon. Turns out the direct from China arrived today, so I ended up with 2 - still new. Asking for the...

    Tesla Cybertruck Orders Hit 146K in Two Days

    Is the reservation transferable? Wonder if i can throw $100 at it and then sell my reservation spot for a price to some fanboy later. Risk free investment. Might even try to reserve more than 1 if possible. Pads the numbers, brings up the hype. Pump and dump.

    2020 Model 3 and differences from 2019

    That just regular speaker right? I wonder how hard would be to hijack that speaker and play V8 - V10 sound clip with an ipod or something, just use the enable signal to turn it on or off :D

    Don't want heater on, want vent

    Can probably do a work around with Tasker script (Android) and the Tesla plugin for it and use when BT is connected to the car or an NFC tag on the car to trigger it. Ill mess around with it later, but from a quick look, it can be done: IE. 70F is my auto setpoint. Just pseudo code, can play...

    OPINION: Model 3 made in China better quality than USA built.

    Neither am I, that's why i said i would even buy an Iphone. I'd rather use Android Auto, regardless I want to use Waze and real spotify, not that sad excuse we have right now.

    Maybe they use real paint that won't scratch just by looking at it the wrong way.

    Tap Advanced 5 times to force car to check for latest software update [Update: debunked, not true]

    For the Obviously the people that couldnt it to work were missing a very imporant step: Click your heels three times while repeating "there is no one like Elon" while spamming the advanced button.

    MASTER THREAD: 2019.36.2.1 - new HOLD mode and other features

    I guess Creep is made for people that have been driving automatics all their lives, old habits die hard. The TM3 Its basically an automatic as well. I have driven manual all my life till the model 3, so creep made no sense to me - you can't move forward on the manual unless you are in gear and...

    MASTER THREAD: 2019.36.2.1 - new HOLD mode and other features

    Supercharger - Chula Vista, CA (LIVE 4 Aug 2020, 16 V3 stalls)

    I didn't know handicap only charging spots where a thing. Are those handicapped exclusive? Aka like a regular blue spot where you can get fined, or are those courtesy ones where handicapped have priority but anyone can still use them if empty?

    How to add FAST wireless charging.

    So Apple been Apple. Shocking If you want "fast charging" you gotta buy the Apple $250 pad. Still can only do 7.5w while Android can do 10w with a $10 Qi charge .

    You get a very nice surprise if you are in CA. While some states are still offering incentives for electric vehicle buyers, California will soon become the biggest state to start charging fees for EV ownership. California is estimated to account for about half of the country's EV sales, so the...

    Price change after ordered

    1) One inquiry is not gonna kill his credit. Loan application takes 5 mins. 2) Registration Tesla does it for you. Not his problem if he returns it. He is entitled to have his money back. Tesla most likely holds the execution of his loan and registration until the 7 days have passed. 3)...

    Eibach Pro on LF AWD

    I want to get rid of that SUV wheel gap in AWD LR and the Eibach seem mild enough that I won't have to worry much about scraping. I have read enough posts about clunking and other issues with the UP to know to stay away from them. Anyone with these have any issue?

    Seeing free charger spots empty at work while paying $60 every 4 days for gas. In any other state, I would have bought a manual BMW M2 Competition instead.

    Supercharger - Chula Vista, CA (LIVE 4 Aug 2020, 16 V3 stalls)

    Interesting. I always thought the most logical and convenient location would be Plaza Bonita - its a pretty big mall right off the I805 and 54. Easily accessible from I5 as well. This eastlake location is a little off's way - the only "fast" way would be via 125 which is a toll road, otherwise...

    Spotify: Bluetooth vs Tesla built in app

    I lose my Waze police alerts if i use the car app AND get lower streaming quality if i use the car app, so no. Phone connected via BT, downloaded playlist at highest quality, Waze running in bg for alerts = next best thing besides Android Auto / Carplay.

    V10 Best UI feature, rendered useless within seconds.

    I am talking about how we can zoom, scroll, turn out of the car avatar view. I was trying it this morning, zooming it all out and it was awesome it detected cars around me that the default view didn't pick up. AWESOME!!! Then it reverts back to the default view.. " After a short period of...

    Do i need to "warm up" batteries before going WOT?

    Coming from Turbo ICE's car, going WOT with a cold engine / cold oil is a big no-no. Do i need to drive for a couple of miles before opening the car up?

    Would you pay just to get automatic lane changing?

    Cool, i didnt know that! Turning on the blinkers does make it super easy to turn to wheel manually (instead of wresting it away from AP) and turns off AP. I was hitting up everytime on the right stalk to turn it off everytime.

    How to add FAST wireless charging.

    Update: Can confirm the Zendure X6 works like a charm. - Fast Wireless Charge on my S9 on passthru mode, it doesn't kill the USB port like the Ravpower pack did. Only one port supports QC 3.0/2.0 tho, but its okay. I added an Inline USB On/Off switch so i can easily turn passthru mode on or...

    Would you pay just to get automatic lane changing?

    I couldn't justify dropping 6K for the FSD package, but I would love to pay, say $1,000 just for the lane switching option. I love using AP on my 50 mile oneway commute, but hate how i have to turn AP off everytime i need to switch lanes because of slower car in front or switching freeways...

    Should I buy FSD before Nov 11, 2019, price hike? [Update: OP did not buy FSD]

    How to add FAST wireless charging.

    Thanks, I ended up pulling the trigger on that pack, albeit the "used, Amazon Warehouse" version for $70 buxs. Can always return it if it behaves the same as the cheaper pack. Should get it delivered today, so lets see if that works.

    SDG&E and combined electric rates

    Just wondering, when people throw numbers out like $.09, $.12 per kwh, are they taking into account the other fees as well? There is still the flat "generation rate" per kwh that gets added to that, as well as transmission charge as well. Its come out to about $.25-.$28 kwh with TOU-5 and you...

    How to add FAST wireless charging.

    Can you confirm that you can plug run it in passthrough mode and still have fast wireless charging while the powerpack is charging at slower rate? The problem i have with my previous battery pack as i mentioned above is that when in passthru mode, it kills the car usb port cause its outputting...

    How to add FAST wireless charging.

    Celebrated too soon, the powerpack option didn't work as good as expected. Problem seems to be the passthru mode - If both output (to wireless charger) and input (from car usb) are connected it seems to kill the car USB port and only a reboot brings it pack. My guess is that because of...

    20 tint on rear window, too dark?

    I ended up going 20% all around ceramic - the shop happened to have a demo car with that exact config and it wasn't that dark. Thanks for all the feedback!

    You mean the one-piece rear window right? I just afraid I might have visibility issues at night.

    20 tint on rear window, too dark?

    Anyone have a 20% ceramic tint on the rear window? I want to do 20% all around ( no windshield ), i don't mind the sides but i am afraid it might be too dark in the back. The alternative would be 20 sides, 30 or 40 back but not sure how that would look.

    How to add FAST wireless charging.

    Not sure, but for $25 buxs i can give it a try for a while. I might end up routing the 12v anyways later on, but for now this is convenient enough.
