    I wish the Model 3 had the new Model S steering wheel

    I love it. Reminds me of Kit! I wonder if that where Elon got the idea!!! Humans have the ability to re-learn anything. To think that's an excuse is ridiculous. Hec, just to get in the M3 with the pivoting handle is teachable to a 5th grader. Let's get real!!!

    2020.48.x

    Not a huge fan either. Very minor but to unlock the trunk, now have to wait for the car to stop spinning before option appears. I too feel it's counterproductive. Smaller screen showing where you are to free up virtual visualization is Ludacris. Pun intended...

    Tesla drives with no phone and no key card.

    Thru 3rd party apps, I use my apple watch to drive the car; no phone nor key card necessary.

    Enhanced Autopilot is BACK!!

    Would they have to upgrade the computer to 3.0 or can 2.0 and 2.5 handle it?

    Premium Connectivity cost $9.99/month for many Model 3 versions

    I think you'd be surprised. Plus, don't like the fact they hit my cc every month.I like one and done. Simpler...

    Premium Connectivity cost $9.99/month for many Model 3 versions

    I wish there was a $100/year option. There would be a lot more takers.

    Maybe clay bar but not wet sanding.

    12V Battery Just Died - Total battery failure

    Didn't even do that. Pulled off the Pos first! Everything else says Neg first. Oh well, it all works.

    12V Battery Just Died - Total battery failure

    I watched the service guy swap out batteries. Let's just say, so simple a caveman could do it. Honest!

    Tesla 3 screen shutdown whilst driving

    Happened to me once while on the hwy. I rebooted while driving and came back on. All was good. I was nerve racking but...it's a computer. Sh!t happens.

    Drop-in subwoofer upgrade?

    Yes, may be cheaper on their website. Not sure about shipping costs.

    Drop-in subwoofer upgrade?

    The car did alert/warn me. Stated I had to replace it "soon". It died the next day. Ohmmu 12v lithium battery seems to be the one to go with.

    Drop-in subwoofer upgrade?

    Everything but the propulsion of the car runs on this 12v battery. My 12v battery died and was replace yesterday. I only got 2 years out of mine. Extreme temps deteriorate batteries. Sad I only got 2 years. Also keep in mind these batteries are very small.

    12V Battery Just Died - Total battery failure

    This probably has a lot to do where you're at. I was quoted 3 weeks to replace mine. They were scheduled to come out on 7/30 but asked if they would come sooner. They bumped me up and they (mobile unit) were here yesterday (week sooner). 3 weeks without a car is too long. 2 was hard enough...

    Drop-in subwoofer upgrade?

    Don't know if this will help but people have been replacing their dead 12v batteries with a lithium battery and have stated much better results in their bass. Might be an option (although they're not cheap ~$450).

    You're right. There is no charge. Thank you Tesla!

    Premium Connectivity cost $9.99/month for many Model 3 versions

    Understood, you're absolutely right. I've used mine to download updates. You might have to monitor your data usage if don't have an unlimited plan.

    12V Battery Just Died - Total battery failure

    I hope so. I put in a service call thru the app. Stated they'll be out 7/30. I asked about the coverage but no info yet. Thx!

    12V Battery Just Died - Total battery failure

    My battery is on its way out. I'm the second owner and am wondering if this would be covered under warranty. TIA!

    Using Spotify thru the car requires premium. Using Bluetooth thru your phone is free.

    297 Full charge?

    After 2 years I get 298. I'd say that pretty good too. This is to be expected. Would be great if it went the other way like when an engine breaks in and performs better? All batteries fad over time. Sad but true.

    How to listen to AM radio stations?

    I use Bluetooth from my phone. Works great.

    How to listen to AM radio stations?

    TuneIn is not really all that good. I miss my AM station as well. I use the iHeartRadio to get my station.

    2020.16.2.1 killed my LTE connection

    The moderators don't like the word K!LL. I used it once describing the same condition with a previous download. I just downloaded this version today. So far, so good.

    Setting driving limits along with Valet mode?

    Valet mode takes all the excitement away from the car and reduces quickness and top speed. Car becomes boring.

    New Tesla 15.12kW Solar / 4 Powerwall order in Orlando

    The application fee is covered by Tesla (confirmed by them). The umbrella coverage ~$200.

    New Tesla 15.12kW Solar / 4 Powerwall order in Orlando

    I went through all the motions but due to poor credit, I couldn't get funding. I was getting exactly what the OP stated with the 4 powerwalls. Would do this in a heartbeat as it is a total wash to what I'm paying Duke now. Hopefully next year.

    Has Any P3D+ Owners Gotten Carbon Fiber Spoiler?

    Mine was installed by Tesla mobile. Came out great, no issues at all and has stayed that way. I doubt if I am the only one. It's the only carbon Fiber on the car. Think I would have preferred chrome but it looks good.

    Powerwalls and Solar how much Offset?

    I've been looking as well. Put my $100 down, did all the paperwork and now waiting for approval (credit's bad right now so don't know...). Our power is always getting knocked out. I was looking at 15 kW with 4 powerwalls. With this setup should be good for at least 7 days with no power for...

    Premium Connectivity cost $9.99/month for many Model 3 versions

    I'm fine without it. It's just not worth that much IMO.

    Premium Connectivity cost $9.99/month for many Model 3 versions

    I think that's crazy (having to pay per month). I understand they'll make more $$ but I think more people would sign up; like me.

    0% financing ?

    You may have missed my point. I do not want nor plan to buy another ICE car again no matter the cost.

    I miss driving my Model 3

    I agree! In the last 4 weeks, I've driven mine 3 times. Sad times we live in right now...Stay safe.

    Celebrities who drive a Tesla?

    Tom has been complaining about all the boat coming by hoping to catch a glimpse. Kinda funny but it'll calm down over time (probably not while he's playing for the Buck with his buddy Gronk!) Love it!!!

    Tesla For Sale Near Pensacola FL

    These cars are definitely worth the travel time to get one. If you find one you like, go get it or ship it to you. That's what I did. Traded in my Volt for the M3P. They shipped the car down from Chicago and took mine back. Worked out pretty good. No complaints.

    New software upgrade shows fire hydrants as orange traffic cone

    I believe they put more in the updates than what we know about. Like bug fixes and such.

    M3P- 2018

    Mine settled down to 310 miles. Pretty consistent, but do not fully charge unless I have to.

    AutoLaneChange Won’t Work...

    AP will not switch lanes. FSD should. Which do you have?

    0% financing ?

    I would never purchase an ICE vehicle again. 0% or not. Good luck...

    They have an EV comparable to a Tesla? Or are you talking about ICE cars?

    Hows night visibility with 20% tint all around?

    How old is your 3? Can you post a pic of your screen showing this? Can you adjust the amount of tint?

    Hows night visibility with 20% tint all around?

    Wait, what..our side mirrors auto tint?!?!? I've been thru every tab and did not see this. Can someone display the option for this. Does everyone have this? Damn damn...I'll have to look again.
