    FS - OEM 18"s with TPMS (433Mhz), Aero Covers and Nokian Hakkapalitta R3 Snow Tires with little use....(WA)

    Range hit no, not really with the width difference...Perhaps the tread are not as efficient as the OEM Michelins. These are softer and griper in the cold as well. UPDATE, I've decided to keep these....

    To "Sentry" or not to "Sentry"....that is the question

    This has happened to me too! Mine was not as egregious, but it did scratch the car. I didn't notice it until washing and didn't even attempt to go back and look through sentry clips to find it...nothing can be done even if I find the person that did it. Sentry, good, but not for this type of...

    Rivian vs Model Y

    48 amp charging is with the Wall Charger. The max on the mobile charger is 32amps, which gives my M3 30m/h at 8kw/h.

    Painted Brake Calipers Collection

    Hm, the one I have is the spray can and I've heard that the VHT spray nozzle is not the best. I am just trying to find the time to take off the wheels, clean and paint. I will probably do one side at a time, having to borrow a jack from a neighbor as well. So, ideally would take me at least...

    Painted Brake Calipers Collection

    Guys, thanks for posting! These all look great! I've been thinking about using the Engine paint from VHT. The burnt copper, but haven't done it yet. Hoping to get the courage to do it soon! :)

    Diminished Value Claim question

    just go to KBB or Edmunds and do a value your car without accident then one with the accident and see what the difference is. Honestly, I don't think the insurance company cares what that site is estimating as it seems that site is trying to get money from you, the claimant!

    Diminished Value Claim question

    FWIW, update on my posts. So, I was offered $2k then $2.8k and finally $3k for my DV from insurance. I had to go back and forth, but was able to go up from $2k to $3k on damages totally $3.5k to fix. Get support and make your case. Good luck!

    Diminished Value Claim question

    Mike did you decline the first and second before they offer the final? Did you take the final settlement? What was your reasons to them that you thought the first two offers were not enough? Thanks

    Aodhan AFF7 Foreged Wheels on Model 3

    Tony, I think it will be stretched, as the OEM is 235/45/18 (LRM3) and that to me is already stretched. Now you are adding 1 inch (2.5cm) in width with the wheel but only 10mm in the tire. That's my opinion.

    Charging limited to 16a

    Lucky you, my mobile connector is apparently too old, 2019, and they won’t replace it, but will surely sell me a new one. Pathetic!

    Charging limited to 16a

    I have been experience with that too this year. mine is a 2019 charging at home with the 220v outlet with the OEM charging cable. This is starting to be the issue for me. I've tried tightening the outlet were the wires are connected, that helped for awhile, but it is not back to starting at...

    Aodhan AFF7 Foreged Wheels on Model 3

    They look great! I have 19x8.5s on mine and love them. The finish could be better, but for the price, wow. Also, the hub rings are important to center the wheels to the hub, otherwise, you are centering it using the 5 bolts, not ideal, but it can be done.

    I been seeing a lot of videos claiming that Meguiars Wheel Brightener removes water spots and is safe for clean coats, BUT IT IS NOT SAFE FOR GLASS! Has anyone used it on their car for water spots?

    Aodhan AFF7 Foreged Wheels on Model 3

    I have the 19x8.5+35, was going to go with the larger 19x9.5, but decided not to. Have 245/40/19 tires on them. Was going to lower it but decided that since it's not strictly a street car and my wife also drives it, I'd better stay away as I can see it bottomming out when she's driving and...

    Diminished Value Claim question

    Mike, did you get it repaired at Tesla SC? I have not been able to get mine repaired yet, so, no contact yet, besides the initial contact with them. I guess I have to wait on you for the process to know what I need to do. My estimate is about $1k more than yours to fix. Please keep me...

    Went low with coilovers

    Interesting. I was told by Riaction that preload for the front should be 10mm while the rear should be 20mm. What should they be, if you know if I want to drop about 30mm in front and 26mm in the rear, on a M3 LR AWD?

    Aodhan AFF7 Foreged Wheels on Model 3

    Sure, I am not running spacers as these are 19x8.5 +35. I didn't want too aggressive of a look and wanted to keep the splashing to a minimum as I do live in the Pacific Northwest (rains a lot). The tires are PSAS4 245/40/19. I wanted to go a little bigger for a tad more comfort and not...

    Went low with coilovers

    hi, so, what setting did you have it at? I was told to preload at 20mm for the rear and 10mm for the fronts. Also, how much did you lower it? I am thinking these for M3 AWD. Thanks

    Went low with coilovers

    I am thinking of buying a used set from a local seller, the RIA-MOD3SS-A. Previous owner said he put about 3K miles on them then sold the car. Thoughts? Should I buy used? Should I go Riaction or something a little more expensive like UP or Tien?

    All Season Performance Tires recommendations?

    Update 7/11/22, after about 2700 miles on the Michelin PASAS4s, size 245/40/19, on Aodhan AFF7s wheels, my average is about 300 wh/m, that's with warming weather, 65 and above. Did a 160 mile each way trip from GH to Portland, OR and my average down was 287 and back was about 301. So far, it's...
