    Model 3 - Response of rear sensors to hitch-mounted bicycle rack?

    The display will show a yellow line at the rear of the car, similar to the line that is seen on the side of the car when you are near a guardrail. No alarms, pretty easy to ignore the yellow lines.

    1100+ miles with 2 MTBs

    Like Alan said, put the bikes inside (seats folded, luggage and riding gear stashed around), and enjoy much improved efficiency and range. Use the bike rack locally for convenience and for shuttling when range is not important.

    Can Anyone Recommend a Shop for PPF Install in Reno, NV?

    Hello Mountain/Southwest Tesla pilots, Looking for a PPF install in Reno or surrounding areas (Carson City, Mindeville). They use a lot of cinders on the road in the wintertime, and even with Rally Armor flaps, the rocker is pretty chipped and battered. Sold that 3, getting another soon, and...

    Oct 2019 electric utility power shutdowns in various parts of California

    As everyone (in CA) is aware, there was the possibility of PSPS the last couple of days. I live on the CA East Side, and our electricity provider is SCE rather than PG&E, but we have had PSPS events as well. I was planning to travel to the Sacramento area during the proposed PSPS event, and...

    Climate Change / Global Warming Discussion

    Sadly, there are troglodyte dinosaur-burners everywhere out there... And I was unaware that I was a leftist!

    Aftermarket Wheels on Model 3

    Page 91 on the aftermarket wheels thread, lots of folks upgrading their wheels, and I am hoping to find someone who upgraded their 18" Aero wheels and wants to sell the 18 " OEM wheels. I want to have an extra set to mount with snow tires to avoid mount-remount twice a year. Anyone?

    National Drive Electric Events Sept 14 - 22, 2019

    Parked my M3 SR+ at an EV event, and a firefighter stopped by, said he was a Vehicle Extraction Specialist or Technician, or some such thing, and wanted to know where the battery isolate/power cutoff switch was. I am pretty familiar with the vehicle, and have opened most of the easily...

    What’s the average Wh/mi you are getting

    Just turned 3,000 miles yesterday, and the 255 wh/mile seems to be on the upper end of average. SR+, 18" wheels, aero covers. I love the acceleration and the passing abilities, and I use them a lot, so this doesn't seem too bad. And there were a few hundred miles of towing a light but very...

    looking for purchasable options to enhance aero wheels on blue M3

    Knightshade, Thanks for the link, and the comments. Agree. I also ordered the wheel kit and can live with a 2.9% range reduction. My range reduction is quite a bit more than that because I drive fast, and waste energy, and love going fast.

    looking for purchasable options to enhance aero wheels on blue M3

    WilliamG, that is certainly a worthy opinion. And I can't disagree that the aero wheel covers are less than attractive. I do think the wraps make those aero covers on the white 3 look somewhat better. I wonder if there is real-world data confirming that the aero wheel covers do actually...

    looking for purchasable options to enhance aero wheels on blue M3

    I watched the Youtube on the Aero Wheel Wraps (), and the white on a white car looks nice, supposedly other colors coming soon. Has anyone tried the white wraps on a blue or other color M3? If so, please post an image. I would like to do something to those aero wheel covers to improve the...

    White front badge vs no badge

    Is de-badging as simple as peeling it off, or apply heat, or?

    Better to charger higher or run battery lower?

    Back to the OP's question, is it detrimental to allow the battery to reach a low SOC? I live in a semi-remote area, and I misjudged on the drive home and arrived with 9 miles of estimated range (didn't check the percentage). Ok on occasion, or always bad?
