    FS: OEM Wireless Charging Pad from 2019 SR+ (Orange County, CA)

    Sold. Sorry I can’t delete this thread because it’s so old

    Can’t decide on tint. Appreciate input and pics.

    Looks really good, actually. Can’t really tell that the rear glass only has the OEM tint unless you look for it. And it lets in enough light to not attract the police’s attention

    Black Friday Deals for Your Model 3?

    Anyone receive any promo emails from any tesla accessory retailers about Black Friday deals? Wondering if Taptes or RPM tesla is doing anything.

    Apparently Checked their website a few times and it’s just a bunch of AliExpress junk marked up lol

    Nice! Where would you get it, and do you know if they’re running a Black Friday promo?

    Black Friday Deals for Your Model 3?

    Wondering what, if anything, are you getting for your Model 3 on Black Friday? Not sure which Tesla-accessory vendors are having Black Friday sales, but figured this would be a good place for us to discuss and post any upcoming deals. I’m on the lookout for deals on the rear reflector LED...

    4% Cash back for Supercharging! Costco Visa card

    I understand this fine print to mean that ChargePoint stations are eligible for 4% cash back because it is a “worldwide EV charging purchase.” The language “including gas and EV charging at Costco” means that those places are also eligible for 4% cash back. The 1% “non-qualifying” applies to...

    Model 3 resell values have plummeted.

    True. For what it’s worth though, and this is purely anecdotal, but I believe Teslas hold their value very well. I leased a M3SR+ in July 2019, then sold it for $40k in December 2020 (long before the used car market ballooned). MSRP on my SR+ at the time I leased it was ~$42k.

    Model 3 resell values have plummeted.

    You should’ve sold your 2019 M3LR back in June when the market was hot and “locked in” the higher price. Of course a used car will continue to depreciate as time goes on, can’t blame Tesla (or anyone) for paying market value for a car. I got a very lucrative offer from Carvana for my BMW i3 in...

    Model 3 resell values have plummeted.

    No, the market is returning to valuing used cars correctly, as all the comments below say:

    Can’t decide on tint. Appreciate input and pics.

    I did 20% on just the four door windows (and the triangle window behind the rear doors). I did not tint the front/rear windshield or the glass on the roof.

    New model 3 LR, grinding sound during turns, SC says ok?

    I've had a similar issue (rubbing/grinding noise when turning at low speeds) since taking delivery a month ago, and I've made a service appointment. Service quoted me a $150 estimate to repair, assuming it's not covered under warranty. Hopefully it goes away before my service appointment...

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    Keep us posted on your experience with Acceleration Boost! I thought I was going to buy it when I took delivery of my M3LR, but I quickly realized that the speed is plenty for everyday driving. In fact, I keep it in "chill" mode most of the time. But I'm still tempted...let us know how it goes!

    Yeah and this fog light kit is reasonably priced. But what I don’t know about and haven’t seen reviews for is the actual light output from these aftermarket fog lights (i.e., brightness, beams, etc.)

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    I use the frunk for my sweaty gym clothes and shoes. I also use it to transport fast food so it doesn’t permeate the interior. I close the frunk with my knuckles to reduce fingerprints

    Best Car mats/liners for 2022 model 3?

    Here’s a 60-page thread on this topic

    Pic of your Model 3.......RIGHT NOW! [model 3 pictures thread]

    I think it’s more dependent on which trim you have, i.e., SR+/LR/P. I saw this video from RPM Tesla with a “second gen” fog light kit that does not require splicing into the signal on the fender:

    Pic of your Model 3.......RIGHT NOW! [model 3 pictures thread]

    Yeah I’ve seen them on eBay, amazon, RPM tesla, etc. But curious if yours is the first gen that required splicing into the turn signal on the fender, or the second gen that is completely plug ‘n play.

    When and where was this? And on what forum (here on TMC, Reddit, Facebook, etc.) so they organize?

    Which fog light kit is that? How easy eas the installation and do they blink with your turn signals?

    @tom @ eas what do you guys typically charge to install a set of spacers on a Model 3 LR/Dual Motor? Would buy the H&R spacers you guys sell.

    Tint is 100% necessary on the Model 3. It actually improves the comfort in the cabin with the shade it provides, in addition to the heat reduction

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    Congrats! Happy you made it. How’s acceleration boost? Did you drive the car without AB before buying it? I still haven’t bought it, and I don’t think I need it. But curious what your thoughts are and how noticeable the difference is

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    Hang in there. I know it’s frustrating, many (if not all of us) have been through the wait and push backs. But I promise that when you actually take delivery of your car, it’ll seem like all this waiting and agony went by so quickly. The car is worth the wait and putting up with the bullish!t

    Stuck Downloading 2022.24.8?

    Just took delivery of my M3LR about 10 days ago, and my app has been stuck “downloading” the 2022.24.8 software update. This is despite the car being parked overnight where full WiFi coverage is available that the car is connected to. I searched TMC and google and the consensus was to submit...

    Can you pair a Model X key fob to Model 3?

    I read about the “one and done” pairing here, another thread on TMC

    Can you pair a Model X key fob to Model 3?

    I read somewhere that once a key fob is paired to a Tesla, it‘s married forever and can never be unpaired/re-paired to another Tesla

    Can you pair a Model X key fob to Model 3?

    Update: just successfully paired a 2022 Model X key fob (never paired) to my 2022 M3LR. All the functions and buttons work perfectly. Did the pairing myself, literally took 20 seconds. Just followed the on-screen instructions in the “locks” tab in settings

    Thanks! And to be sure, we’re talking about the OEM Tesla-shaped key fob from Tesla, right - not the key cards?

    Pair Model X Key Fob to Model 3?

    I’ve searched but can’t find a definitive or updated answer. I have access to a 2022 Model X key fob (the OEM one shaped like a Tesla sold directly by Tesla) and would like to pair it to my Model 3. Is it possible to pair a Model X key fob to a Model 3? If so, can I do it myself or do I...

    Pairing Key Fob

    So once a key fob is paired to a Tesla, it cannot be unpaired? Asking because I have access to a 2022 Model X key fob and want to pair it to my Model 3

    Discussion: Floor Mats in Model 3

    checking in again now that I took delivery of my car and have the Taptes mats installed. Perfect fitment and great quality - they don't slide around, I don't see any coverage gaps, all-around great value for 3D Maxpider quality/look for a fraction of the price

    So did you elect to buy a car that was already in inventory, instead of waiting for your specific build?

    Both. The amount of glass on the model 3 is like a magnifying glass for heat and it’s just too damn bright inside

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    I financed through a credit union and the process could not be easier. In fact, when I leased my last Tesla through Tesla, they got so much wrong at the outset and then it was a nightmare when I sold the lease, with Tesla eating $2,000+ of a refund that was due me.

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    Have you tried a credit union? Some of them have a 60-day window between approval and when you receive your car - might be worth a shot. I know the concern is having another inquiry on your credit, but my understanding is that multiple inquiries for the same reason (i.e., car loan) just shows...

    Everyone still waiting on a VIN, EDD, delivery, etc… hang in there! I’ve had my M3LR for about 24 hours now and it was well worth the wait, annoyance of EDDs pushed back and VINs for later order dates. This isn’t my first Tesla or first EV, but holy cow this M3LR is on another level. Worth every...
