    Factory OEM Model X hitch and tow hook.

    I have the OEM factory hitch and tow hook for the Model X. Practically new, just trying to recoup my purchase. Should fit all years for the X. These are pretty expensive from Tesla. Asking $600 obo for the entire kit. Local pickup only due to size (just south of Boston)

    Model X Plaid Third Row Climate

    Anyone not getting this fixed needs to call out their SC. I had this fixed at my SC (see my quoted post) soon after delivery. It took them a while, but the tech and my SA got to know the inner workings of the new X very well. It's definitely a different layout from the Raven models.

    Sold Model 3/Y Forged 19x10 ET35 wheels

    I wish I could give evidence of the load ratings, but as far as Forged vs Flow Forged, they showed me the cut wheel before powder coating. So, I 100% believe they're forged. Could they just show me anything? Probably, but the raw aluminum flow forged/cast wheels look VERY different from forged...

    Mounted wrong size wheels - they’re now permanently stuck to the car. Disaster [resolved]

    Would be funny if the mechanic who removed them was super scrawny compared to the other guys that tried the same sledge hammer previously. From the aftermath photo they do look like they have a step for the performance lip, but judging by the scuffed area in the bore it looks too shallow of a...

    https://www.teslamodel3wiki.com/tesla-model-3-hub-size-differences/ https://www.teslamodel3wiki.com/tesla-model-3-hub-size-differences/ See this wiki. The rotor hat on the stock M3P rotors is thinner. As a result, about 3mm of hub lip are exposed and performance compatible wheels have the hub...

    Mounted wrong size wheels - they’re now permanently stuck to the car. Disaster [resolved]

    This is probably the craziest thing I've seen happen, but didn't think would ever be possible. That little MP3 lip is a bastard already, but for that 6mm difference to cause 4 improperly bored wheels to get stuck just shows how careful we need to be with these things. I didn't think anyone...

    Sold Model 3/Y Forged 19x10 ET35 wheels

    These were made by a contact my local shop knew. So no brand really, but they claim they make wheels for many of the popular companies sourced out of Taiwan. The anti-slip knurling looks really close to my Signature wheel set. Not sure if it's the same factory, but take that for what it's worth.

    Sold Model 3/Y Forged 19x10 ET35 wheels

    I had an extra set of Forged wheels custom made: 19x10 ET35 with 950kg load rating. Wheels sit flush on MPP/Girodisc rotors and 275/35/19 PS4S tires on my M3P. Factory M3P rotors will push wheels inboard 4mm and may require spacers depending on tire size. Turns out I have too many wheels now...

    Vendor GiroDisc 370mm Rotors for GM Brembo 6-Pot Calipers

    Those look nothing like stock brackets. In fact, if my stock brackets had that length I'd be able to use my MPP lines without zip ties.

    Yes I did. It fits into the 14mm bored hole in the knuckle and the M12 factory bolt fits inside the sleeve perfectly.

    Vendor GiroDisc 370mm Rotors for GM Brembo 6-Pot Calipers

    How would that work? The M14 part has to pass through the M12 hole to get to the M14 threads in the caliper.

    Photos here. you can see the nick highlighted in the sunlight in the last photo. If you look closely at the one of the other photos of the wheel you can see it at the 9 o'clock position. Not in a rush to sell these, cause (like I mentioned earlier) can I simply run these in the winter instead...

    19x10 for track runs, and cheap 19s for winter months. I mean I could just keep these for the winter months, but that just seems silly if I can sell them for what I'm asking.

    I have a set of Signature SV502 wheels in Matte Gunmetal 20x9 ET30 square setup mounted with Continental DWS06 Plus tires in 255/35/20. Probably about 10k miles on the tires and wheels. One wheel has a nick from a stray rock kicked from another car on the highway (such bad luck). I've touched it...

    I found aluminum tubes on Amazon that are 14mm OD and 12mm ID. They fit perfectly, but you just need to cut them to the proper length.

    Going to say factory bolts would be gravy. Wish Tesla had a bolt that fit these calipers. The bolts I grabbed from ZZPerformance aren't corrosion resistant. Just need to find the GM P/N for it.

    Been running these for about 2k miles on the road. Missed out on my track day at Palmer due to work obligations (DAMN YOUUUU!!!!), but these things are firm and bite.

    Slight Fluttering Sound From Rear (21 M3P - No Mods)

    Yeah, my issue is definitely different. It's only at highway speeds, and only if my throttle is partially engaged to maintain highway speed. The noise goes away soon upon flooring it or regenerative braking. Glad you got it fixed so quickly.

    Slight Fluttering Sound From Rear (21 M3P - No Mods)

    Hmmm, I've noticed this with my car up front. When cruising with 5 to 10 percent throttle at highway speed I hear the fluttering up front. Floor the throttle or regen braking eliminates the sound. Is that what you experienced?

    Can any shop do wheel alignment

    Until Firestone starts aligning Teslas, thus allowing me to pay for lifetime alignments, I'm going to invest in floating plates to install in my future garage and do string alignment. It's silly to pay $200 every time I want to adjust something. It's easy to do if you have the tools and a level...

    Can any shop do wheel alignment

    I thought you couldn't officially change camber on the stock suspension. It's just toe and caster. To truly change the front camber on the stock, I believe you need to loosen the top mounting bolts and try to shift the strut in or out to get about 1 degree of range.

    Model X Plaid Third Row Climate

    My SC said the joints leaked air badly. They disassembled the entire interior to tape up the all duct joints. Even Elon pisses them off. The service manual had the vents located in the old X spots, whereas the 2021+ refresh has the ducts in a different location. That's why they needed to...
