    Range/Cost

    On February 1-3 I drove from Bellingham. WA to Indio, CA in my standard dual motor, long range MY mostly using I-5 ,1420 miles spending two nights in hotels. I used 484 kW that cost me $162.96. I drove 5-10 mph over the speed limit and it was cold as West Coast cold goes. My tires were 1-2 lbs...

    MASTER THREAD: Removing marks from white seats

    I was in the cleaning business for 20 years, my new light colored airplane seats suffered permanent stains caused by blue jeans, jeans that I've worn for 4-5 years, I tried everything and couldn't move more than about 30% of the stains. The manufacturer said, that had never happened before! In...

    Any other 2019 MY reservation holders still waiting for delivery?

    Model Y Delivery - My Full List of Build Issues - How Serious Are These?

    I believe it is best to reject this car. Not only for your peace of mind but also so that Tesla really gets this financially. They are doing a huge disservice to loyal customers and supporters. If they continue to prioritize sales and revenue over customer loyalty, they will be in trouble when...

    Model y battery upgrade?

    I don't recall seeing specs for the MY. Where do you find this information.

    Long Range versus Performance Noise

    I have a loaded Y LR Performance on order but my biggest concern in interior wind and road noise. The performance comes with 20" wheels and the regular LR comes with standard 18" wheels or optional 19" wheels. Is it correct to assume that road noise with be greater with 20" wheels than with the...

    Quiet Package?

    WOW I didn't really realize this. Well then even more, weather or not I accept delivery of a Model Y will depend on the noise level. I know some say that wind noise is just more apparent in an electric car where road and wind noise isn't masked by the ICE. However I know for sure that my M3 is...

    Quiet Package?

    Yes thank you, excellent information, however what I really want is a quiet Model Y.

    Quiet Package?

    Thank you

    Wind Noise Solution?

    Yup, my 2018 Model 3 LR is far too noisy for a luxury car. For me it is the worst thing about the M3. I would purchase a Quiet Package should it become available on the Model Y I have on order.

    Quiet Package?

    Like many of you I own and "love" my 2018 Model 3 but I want more cargo space so I have a Y on order. However I have found my M3LR to be quite loud as compared to my 2016 BMW X3 SUV. I drive the same route from Bellingham, WA to the Skagit Regional airport several times a week and with my M3 I...

    Supercharger pallet - Triple urban SCs

    Yes I agree. A car parked in front of the one at Lone Pine would block traffic.

    Thumping noise while Supercharging

    HAHAHA Yes great example and thanks for sharing. But for those who didn't know (me) it is quite shocking in a 60K luxury car.

    I love this car, but.....

    My first long trip, most of my drives are 30 miles and return. Now that you mention this I think it did want me to do Mt Shasta. I figured it was just a mistake since it was well off the route. Checking google (not Tesla Chargers) that looks like about 60 miles out and back.

    Klamath Falls, OR to Reno, NV

    Wow that is really cool output on the data logger. I've never seen this before. Thanks for the tips for my return drive.

    Klamath Falls, OR to Reno, NV

    I drove Klamath Falls, OR to Reno, NV Sunday and it wasn't fun in my M3LR. Google maps shows this at 253 miles and I don't recall what the charger to charger distance was. Admittedly it was quite cold for at least half the distance it was below freezing. To compensate I ran part of the way with...

    Question for those who still have rated range.

    Yes here. I have about 12,300 miles, I have charged it to 100% maybe 20-40 times mostly using a home 120v/15 amp home charger and maybe a dozen times to 100% using a Tesla supercharger (before I knew better) and now maximum range (on a trip this weekend) reads 301 when full. Twice this weekend...

    I love this car, but.....

    I agree that on my trip this weekend S-S-M I was quite uncomfortable with the range between the Springfield, OR charger and the next one in Klamath Falls, OR. Then the drive from Klamath to Reno was even worse. I arrived at both with about 10% charge but in order to do that I drove at and below...

    Thumping noise while Supercharging

    Just drove my 2018 M3 from Bellingham, WA to Indio, CA and my car was thumping hard at every supercharger. Very shocking and I can't imagine its a good thing.

    Concrete Garage No Wireless Updates

    and that however the building is 2-3 reinforced concrete walls between the router and the Tesla and no it didn't work. However I did install a extender device in the bedroom closest to the garage and I now working well enough for automatic downloads.

    Cabin noise comparison: 12/2017 Model S vs 1/2018 Model 3

    Similar comparison to my 2015 BMW X3 and 2018 Tesla M3. I make the same 26 mile drive several times a week. In the Tesla at 70 mph I feel compelled to wear earphones but not in my older BMW X3. The M3 is obviously and irritatingly noisier.

    Traction Control

    I was driving on wet roads today and noticed the lack of traction control, slid quite easily, too easily when powering a right turn from a four way stop. Surprised me and so I tested it a few times an traction control quite delayed.

    Front License Adhesive

    Whatever you do don’t install the front license plate with adhesive. Mine came loose after 4000 miles and then took me 2 hours to remove the old tape from the car. Impossible to remove from the plastic plate.

    Road Noise

    Good points. I would purchase an S but I really want an SUV and I don't like the looks of the X.
  26. NWPILOT

    Road Noise

    Yes this is a good point about the glass roof.
  27. NWPILOT

    Road Noise

    These are very good suggestions. I live about in Bellingham, WA about 75 miles from Seattle and Bellevue Tesla and traffic being what it is, I hope to not visit Tesla anytime soon.

    Road Noise

    My year old Model 3 road noise is great below say 50 mph, not to bad between 50-70 but over 70 mph I feel compelled to not use the vehicle speakers to listen to audio books and instead use my AirPods. The road noise seems way to high.. I would like to see Tesla offer a quiet car package option...

    Drove Audi e-tron Today

    I own a Model 3 but we also own a 2016 BMW X3 and a 2018 Audi Q5. My BMW X3 really handles well but not as good as my Tesla M3. My wifes new Audi Q5 drives very differently than my BMW X3 XDrive 30i and the Audi handling is far inferior. So the truck like driving with the Etron may have...

    Drove Audi e-tron Today

    I think you are right. I really want to be driving a traditional looking SUV not the X or Y because to me that rounded shape is not attractive nor do they give me the impression of an SUV. Now I think it might be quite awhile before another electric is as good as a Tesla. I own a 2016 BMW X3...

    Drove Audi e-tron Today

    I don't know anything about a $6800 cancellation fee. My $1000 deposit is supposed to be fully refundable. Do you know something I don't know?

    Drove Audi e-tron Today

    I own a model 3 but I prefer the traditional boxy shape of an SUV and to that end I drove an Audi e-Tron Quattro today. I was so disappointed and will cancel my order. It seems to me that the overall appearance, fit and paint for this $80,000 vehicle are better than my Model 3. That said the...

    Concrete Garage No Wireless Updates

    Well I'm retired so no business but yesterday I tried parking in front of Starbucks and at the Tesla charger thinking maybe but didn't work for me.

    Concrete Garage No Wireless Updates

    I live in a condo made of concrete and the unattached garage is the same type of construction and I don't have wireless service to my garage and therefore don't get updates. The garage is only about 20' from my back bedroom which has reduced wireless. I an not a tech and can hardly understand...
