    Why does sentry mode keep turning itself on?

    Switch to playing stored videos. It is at least no longer writing to the flashdrive. Besides that I find safer to format the drive with ext4 filesystem (Linux), it is journalling filesystem so any interruption is correctly recovered when plugging it back (to either Tesla or PC). I sure also...

    Best to charge to 60%?

    I am now for half a year in a different country. I left the car at SoC 50% (sure connected in my garage to Tesla Connector) as that is the lowest valid SoC officially supported by Tesla. I understand I can stop the charging to get to lower SoC than 50% but maybe there is some other battery...

    Best to charge to 60%?

    I do feel my M3P at 60% SoC is significantly weaker than at 90% SoC and it is even measured here: Tesla Performance Model 3 Dyno Testing At Various SOC What I would like to know is whether M3LR and M3P power differs at SoC 50%. It does obviously differ at 100% SoC as this chart shows:

    Heat issues while driving only

    I have just returned from a 2.5 hours ride with 10'C outside and there is definitely some firmware regression. In non-AUTO mode 27.5'C is still very cold and HI is too hot. In AUTO mode the heating works fine (like non-AUTO before), using usually 23'C. Unfortunately I cannot use AUTO mode as I...

    When is it time to trade in Dual Motor?

    You can't have your cake and eat it. When you check the data many users charge regularly only to 50% (or a similar low SoC). When you filter the data and show the chart by 50% vs. 90% charging you can see the higher charging does have a negative impact on the battery health. Although only a...

    Best to charge to 60%?

    When you are already willing to stay at 60% one can already rather save half of the degradation rate by staying at 50% (or at most 55%): Hearing super conflicting advice about battery charging levels

    Heat issues while driving only

    I have the same problem, warm in the garage when I enter the car but then still cold air for a long time, it gets fixed after 5-10 minutes (guessing) so I use HI that time (not sure if it helps). It may be some firmware update as it was not doing it last few weeks.

    Is there a web app for Teslas?

    There is a Python GUI interface. Which may or may not answer your question.

    Voice command turn off circulation does turn it on

    One has to say "recirculation", not just "circulation". Then it works.

    Voice command turn off circulation does turn it on

    Or is there some different wording for it? Both "turn off circulation" and "turn on circulation" will turn the inner air recirculation ON for me. fw 2022.28.2

    Model 3 Performance (High Mileage Users)

    "First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win." - Tesla has already made it. That funny slow battery crap with no range is now eating their lunch each day and they cry as they finally realize there is no other way forward than to also switch to EV. It took...

    Because Plaid is too expensive. Otherwise because a quick takeover of every BMW or Audi slowly taking over another car makes my day. Fortunately even so little makes me happy.

    Lifting it on all 4 jack stands

    Lifting it on all 4 jack stands

    I do not remember it all but I read somewhere on TMC it is recommended to lift up a car for >1 month parking. The tires also also already worn out a bit (after 7 months, the car is a beast) so I am not so much concerned about the tires. OK, so the other safe point should be spring arms. I will...

    Lifting it on all 4 jack stands

    Thanks for the reply but USD 1200 is far from cheap and primarily "shipping to begin in 2-4 weeks" while I leave in 1 month and I am in Europe - therefore plus overseas shipping + customs. You gave me an idea to contact a local blacksmith.

    Model 3 Performance (High Mileage Users)

    So buy Performance Tesla car, sell the 20" wheels+tires (when they are still new) and buy 18" wheels+tires (wheels need to be compatible with Performance Tesla). And you have the best of both, win-win. I am definitely fine with buying cheaper 18" tires and having Performance Tesla car.

    Model 3 Performance (High Mileage Users)

    New 18" AEZ wheels did cost me USD 815 while I sold the 20" used (one little rim scratch) wheels to a Tesla owner for USD 1460. And each 20" tires you are going to buy are more expensive for 20" although now I see the different is not big USD 785 vs. USD 640. 18" wheels have tires height 45%...

    Lifting it on all 4 jack stands

    Leaving for 6 months so I need to lift up my M3P. But you know officially we can use a jack only on 4 points: Model 3 Owner's Manual | Tesla The jack stands I have therefore need to be there. But where to put the jack to lift the car up to put the stands under? Are there some other points near...

    Model 3 Performance (High Mileage Users)

    You can get 18" wheels on M3P - just not the Tesla Aerowheels. I have: ASM80FP40E - Google Search There is also better (but currently out of stock): Fast Wheels EV01(+)

    10k review (M3LR).

    True. On the other hand we also do not know the real "100%" of the battery. I heard BMW's 100% is what Tesla calls 90% as Tesla's 100% is already a bit too much charged battery.

    10k review (M3LR).

    I just charge my today's expected driving consumption to 50% (so typically charge to about 60%) right before I leave and then it gets discharged back to 50%. As then I have slightly better performance (only a little) and slightly better spare energy for an unexpected drive somewhere far...

    10k review (M3LR).

    IIRC from this forum (but I failed to Google it now) with 100% charge for multiple days Tesla car will display a warning you should not do that and that you will lose your battery warranty. Also the usable capacity of 100% vs. 90% is not a big difference (rather like 5% instead of 10%) as with...

    10k review (M3LR).

    The 80% DoD I was replying to is definitely not so great. But your 40% looks to be even better than my 10-20%, optimal is even higher DoD - 55% according to this chart. I am not a battery expect, I just read many articles in the past years. After all such small differences should not matter much...

    10k review (M3LR).

    Do I understand it correctly you do not plug it in at home if the battery would not get under 10%? That is not good for battery, optimal is Depth of Discharge (DoD) 20% - such as 40%-60% cycling. Doing 80% DoD you will have only 40% of the optimal lifetime/degradation of your battery. See...

    Gen 2 mobile connector limited at 8 amps

    I had now the same problem - UMC_a013 + UMC_a014 + UMC_a015. And it were just incompletely plugged the two parts of the mobile connector together. It may look like plugged in but it is not yet (or sure your one is really a defective one...).

    Suspension differences - LR-AWD vs. Performance

    I bought both the AEZ wheels and Michelin tires 235/45R18 for the price of just Michelin tires 235/35R20. For the latter not sure what did you mean is better. 18" has 2.5% better performance (as the tire diameter is smaller) making the 0-60mph 3.5s instead of 3.6s (full acceleration, no 1st foot...

    Suspension differences - LR-AWD vs. Performance

    It will but not the Tesla ones. AEZ (I have these) or Fast Wheels EV01+ (I plan these for summer times) etc. (if there exists any etc.).

    Suspension differences - LR-AWD vs. Performance

    Get the P model (for its engine performance) and replace the wheels for 18" ones so you get better range and you do not have to replace tires (and even sometimes wheels) due to pothole damages.

    Tesla Model 3 Performance spare wheel+tire in Europe?

    Hi, I want to buy a spare tire for my M3P. I want some narrow "spare" only one, not a regular wheel as that would take most of the height of my trunk (when hooked up to the rear tray). I already bought this one but it does not fit the Performance brake + axle lip (the note about incompatibility...

    Car charging less than max amps at home?

    I expect owners of the AC charger did set the maximum amperage to 3x15A. I have already seen such setup. There are some electric tables for diameter of the used cables, its placement, temperature etc. and it could tell them 15A is the maximum permitted limit: (sorry it is in Czech) calculator |...

    Range Loss Over Time, What Can Be Expected, Efficiency, How to Maintain Battery Health

    I drive 112mph on 53mi freeway part of my common 65mi ride and it eats 50-53% of my 82kWh (estimated 76.5kWh usable) M3P battery (my batt has now 100%=492km=1.4% degradation).

    Europe/Czechia: Selling OEM M3P 235/35R20 Uberturbine wheels + Tires (Pirelli P Zero) + TPMS

    The rim-damaged wheel is now fixed-up by a matching paint. It is freshly painted so it should be less visible after some miles. There is also a scratch of the rubber I have found now. Is there any interest in the wheels/tires?

    M3P 100% charge European km range [when new]?

    Thanks for your valuable information! Just simple calc: 2019 M3P your 445/499km=-10.8%, avg teslafi 460/499km=-7.8%, OK. So IIUC the current firmware is showing only one number of range estimate - no longer two different estimates like in the early firmwares?

    M3P 100% charge European km range [when new]?

    To evaluate battery health when choosing a 2019 used M3P - what is the 100% charge displayed range in km (European models) of Model 3 Performance? When I google such info there were two displayed values - EPA rated vs. estimated, does it still apply for latest firmware? According to Teslike.com...

    Buy now or wait for 2021 model?

    Tesla Upcoming Events by Troy says there should be a heat pump and 10% battery increase (density, is it an increase of capacity?). Fortunately for me I plan to buy one only in 2021 anyway. BTW think twice about SR, the LR is not much more expensive and SR owners usually regret it here (although...

    Wall Connector plug holder

    The plug from Wall Connector one normally plugs back to its right side. Is it needed? Does it turn off the Wall Connector somehow? May I leave it hanging from ceiling somewhere in my garage instead? Thinking where/how to install it and I do not have it here yet, thanks.
