    Anybody come from a sports car to Tesla?

    I went from a 718 Cayman GTS to the model 3 last year. The Cayman is more fun and more special as you see much less of them out there. I mostly just drove it to work and back so I didn't really used it's full potential. I like the Tesla more in that you don't need gas or oil. Don't need the...

    New tires at 21,000 miles

    It was more in the sense that if you have to use the regular brake, you are stopping to quickly. Even then I try to not put too much regen at once either.

    fast food in a model 3

    I use a lunch bag/food bag for carrying takeout food. I put it in the back seat and put a seatbelt around it. This way the food never spills. And if it did, it stays inside the container.

    High electricity usage for charging

    I use a chargepoint charger. With the app it states exactly how many kwh I use per month. If ever my utility bill jump way to high, I can compare with the chargepoint and see if the vehicle is the cause or eliminate it as the cause.

    Phantom motorcycle gang showing on model 3 screen

    I know I have summer/winter tires on the side of the garage where I drive in, and sometimes it showed a tractor trailer because maybe how spread out the wheels are. I haven't seen that recently though, but maybe I ignore it mentally now. Do you happen to have bicycles in garage?

    Brake Brandishing [burnishing]/My wheels are trashed

    I burnished my brakes. I only heard about the burnish feature after I did them. I used track mode and turned off regen. They are burnished but I don't use them. I do try once a month or so to give them a solid squeeze and keep them clean and ready for when I need them.

    Martian Wheels MW03 - New discussion thread

    Martian came out with 18x8.0 mw05's. The weight is about the same as a Titan 18x8.5. Advantage for martian are the slimmer tires you can put on. For me these would be winter tires for next winter if I decide to go that route. If my beater car lasts, I will just continue to use that...

    any permanent battery degradation driving in extreme cold?

    If I leave my AC 240v/40amp charger hooked up when it's below freezing, Tesla will warm up the battery first and then charge up or must I select departure time for that to happen? Thanks.

    Thanks for the tips. Since I don't have to go anywhere the next couple of days. I'm just leaving the car in the garage. Outdoor temp was -10F at one point and the garage was 38F. Even though 38F should be fine with charging, I left the car unplugged so it wouldn't be able to. Coldest night...

    any permanent battery degradation driving in extreme cold?

    If one drives an electric vehicle in extreme cold weather like -14F, is there any permanent negative affects on the battery, or is that only in extreme high temperatures? I have an ICE vehicle as well, so I could drive that instead for the couple of extreme cold days coming.

    Oops, driving car in icy condition and car slipped on ice and hit a curb hard

    When I had I didn't drive it below freezing to avoid damaging the tires. On my M3P I got the performance all-season, but use another car with Nokian HP10s for bad winter weather. If I only had the M3P it would have at least winter tires.

    I am keeping monthly tabs on how much the Tesla vehicle says I used in the trip odometer vs what the chargepoint monthy stats shows. For the month of November, I used 300 miles or range. Tesla shows that I averaged 265 Wh/mile. Using charge point it shows I charged up 112 kWh for the entire...

    We need "Off-Road Assist" for snow driving

    With the S3XY buttons, one can reduce regen to 50, 25 or none and works on chill mode. They are working a way to change FWD/RDW bias settings. If only Tesla will add their interface.

    Martian Wheels MW03 - New discussion thread

    wow, terrible they are missing the bore hub. Did they correct this for you? my mw05 worked perfectly. However if I ever decide to get winter rims for my car I think I will go with Titan so I don't run into the same issue as you. Plus I like having a different brand for winter rims.

    Longer to charge at home in colder weather?

    If you discount battery charging and preheating batteries to charge. Also discount heating the cabin, With cold temps, say 20F. Are batteries less efficient because of the battery chemistry? Batteries need to be a certain temperature for 0-60 performance?

    cruise control not changing speed

    I set the cruise control on a 65 mph speed zone. and it does the 5mph over that I set it to, therefore it's cruising at 70mph. When I drive it to a lower speed zone like 55mph. The cruise control does not adjust down. Is there a setting for this to make it lower automatically?
