    Tesla released an OTA software update to fix "unexpected activation of the emergency brake system"

    I am also stuck on 2021.36.5.1. I signed up for the new self driving beta and as of now, still have a 99% Safety Score. Thinking I’m in a different pipeline for updates.

    Black Dual Motor with Underline Badge

    Except with the stealth performance as I have. 18” wheels, regular brakes, not lowered, standard shocks. But is programmed as a performance and has the dual motor with red stripe badge. I mainly wanted the performance speed with higher profile tires to maximize flat tire avoidance from potholes.

    Blog Tesla Cars to Sound Pedestrian Warning With ‘Snake Jazz’

    In today's Christmas Day 2020 update, it says that I can use a USB to upload a custom horn sound to Boombox. Has anyone had success doing this? I configured a USB with a file named Boombox, into which I have my mp3 audio file. This was plugged into the data port that I use for the security cam...

    Red Light and Stop Sign Stop/Go

    Stop and go work pretty well at a light. If behind another car I usually tap the accelerator to get moving sooner than the car would do on its own. The Stop Sign function is not usable because it stops too far back from the line to see cross traffic.

    Automatic Garage Door Safety

    Yes I thought about that option. It might be possible with mirrors to create a zigzag beam from a lower sensor on one side to a higher one on the other.

    Automatic Garage Door Safety

    I have heard a few horror stories about automatic garage doors scraping the back or front of cars because they are not pulled in far enough. Here’s a very easy solution. Raise the laser emergency stop beam up to a level that matches the height of your vehicle’s longest point. I drive in forward...

    Sometime last week I noticed that my map is no longer giving me audio directions. Tried reboot but no change. Any advice?

    I absolutely Love driving my Tesla

    I’m on day 20 with my Stealth Performance and totally love it. I’m using all the FSD bells and whistles, especially SD navigation. I like the extra rubber on the 18” wheels and smoother suspension , but would have liked the larger Performance brakes. Driving has never been so much fun and relaxing.

    Anyone using the Seasucker Mini Bomber bike rack on their Model 3?

    Hello Jrzapata. I like your rack options. I would prefer a hitch for carrying my bike. Two questions. 1. Do you experience any problems with your rear sensors and cameras when bikes are on the rack? 2. What is the brand and model of your hitch? Were you able to self install it? Thanks, ...

    18'' winter wheels delivered without Aero covers?

    Frankly I'm surprised that they don't make all aero covers optional. I took mine off as soon as I got my new car with 18" wheels to expose the nice rims underneath. I expect they make them standard for the longer mileage rating.

    What Kind of Car Did The Model 3 Replace?

    2005 Honda CRV. I would have bought a hybrid crossover. I almost waited for the Y but could not resist getting a stealth performance.

    Do I need to wait before applying paint protection to a new car?

    I am picking up my new model three from the Fremont factory location. I assume it was recently painted. Is there a waiting period before I apply any kind of paint protection?

    LR AWD Performance (Stealth TM3) Waiting Room

    I'm now getting a LR AWD FSD White on Blk 18" Wheel Performance Stealth. I had a full-on Performance ordered since Sept 19th (missed my Sept delivery and so lost my original VIN). While waiting all this time, I decided that I wanted more rubber on the road that one gets with the 18" rims vs the...

    [Poll]- Cybertruck costs 39k to 69k will kill other Tesla EV?

    it is better to cannibalize your own sales, then to have them cannibalized by another company. Also consider that all the major car companies have a line of trucks.

    What does it take to get a Model 3 - aside from waiting and waiting?

    I was advised by the Tesla representative in Fremont delivery center that it would be much faster to have the car delivered to me at my home then for me to pick it up there. I know they don’t do home deliveries everywhere but if you are in the home delivery region, then that would be your best...

    What does it take to get a Model 3 - aside from waiting and waiting?

    The same thing happened to me. I ordered on September 19 but missed the delivery and lost my VIN. I was just told that the second week of December is likely. I have an idea for you however. When they contact you with your new VIN, just make arrangements to buy the car online or via phone if...

    New Owner's Workshop. Is it worth the time?

    My report on the event. I was surprised to see a huge crowd of people there. I arrived at the 7 PM start time and there was a line out the door with about 200 people, and I estimated there were another 200 inside already. Due to the overwhelming turn out, they stopped letting people in and made...

    New Owner's Workshop. Is it worth the time?

    I was invited to join a new owner's workshop at their Fremont delivery center near the factory. Anybody have any feedback on this? If it's a repeat from what I already know from doing 2 test drives, reading the manual and watching countless YouTube videos, then I'll pass. Here is the schedule...

    Tesla hate

    I suspect that as Ford and other mainstream auto makers rollout their lines of Tesla influenced ev's, that hatred will diminish. For instance I bet that bozo would not flip off a row of Mustang Mach E's or their soon to come e pickups. Ironically the Mustang Mach e will be made in Mexico while...

    Why is there such a long wait right now?

    I live in the San Francisco Bay area and often drive by the Tesla factory in Fremont. I see truckloads of new Model 3's every time I drive by that area. Just yesterday (November 9, 2019), I spotted a truckload heading north on HWY 101 in Mountain View. As the picture shows, these are configured...

    I have been getting this type of runaround since I ordered mine from the Palo Alto, CA showroom on September 19. Yes September.

    I ordered on September 19, in person at the Palo Alto, CA showroom. Pearl White, Black Int, 4 WD, Performance, FSD. Still waiting. My interior was originally white but changed to black. I was promised 2 years free supercharging but I expect they will renege on that given they could not deliver...
