    Cabin noise

    The other day I was going through a drive thru fast food and as I was a the order station, a guy pulled in behind me with a souped up car that sounded like a nitro dragster. He kept revving the engine and making lots of noise. Made it difficult to talk to the kid taking orders. After I pulled...

    New model 3s have handle to assist with vehicle exit?

    Well I guess it didn't happen. Perhaps it was only a dream. I can't find the pics showing the handles now. If I come across them again I will return with them.

    New model 3s have handle to assist with vehicle exit?

    I see new models have an assist handle over the door to help getting in and out. I really miss that. I have a 2019 M3 MR and am wondering if those assist handles can be installed now.

    Master Thread: New Tesla Vision system for Model 3/Y

    What will happen to people with Teslas that have radar now? Will Tesla upgrade us to the new Vision system? Are we stuck with an old system that will not be updates anymore?

    Master Thread: New Tesla Vision system for Model 3/Y

    I'm wondering why they changed to Vision. How is that going to work in fog or heavy rain? I don't see how it can if it is relying only on optics. And, for those of us with older 3's ( and other Teslas) will they just disable our radar AP and FSD? How can they get away with that for those of us...

    Warning to take control immediately when I was not using AP

    No, I was leaving the driveway and I back in because it is safer when pulling out. So the front of my car was pointed at the street and there were no vehicles in front of me.

    Warning to take control immediately when I was not using AP

    The other day my 3 suddenly started beeping at me and put up the warning to TAKE CONTROL IMMEDIATELY. Only problem is, I wasn't using cruise control or Auto Pilot. I was already in full control. I have a feeling my sensors are defective. Hmmmm. I get warnings like this and similar quite...

    Can suspension be fixed?

    I've seen quite a few complaints about the ride in the Model 3 and I've seen posts where people changed the springs to lower the car. I'm wondering if it wouldn't be possible to change the springs and / or shocks to get a better ride. If it is, why haven't people been doing it?

    Noise from rear of car

    =========== It's kind of a roaring noise. I think it is mostly tire noise. Tire noise varies greatly according to the pavement type. On concrete it is terrible. On rubberized asphalt not so bad but I would still like it to be quieter.

    How can I get Alerts to show on the screen?

    Every so often Alerts come up on the screen. UsuaLLy while I'm driving so I can't take pictures of them. How can I get Alerts that have happened to come up on my screen?

    Bad MCU?

    I have a 2019 M3 MR with approx 4500 miles. On Sat Feb 21 2021 I got in the car and put in my pin and got warnings that the Brake Regeneration was not workng and the AutoPilot was not working and the Cruise Control was not working. It was right. I was going from E. Mesa to Sun City...

    AP can be dangerous

    When driving along in the slow lane and there is an entrance to the freeway or exit and there is no marking for the side of the road, AP causes the car to swerve to the right and it seeks to put the car in the middle of a lane and there is no lane.

    Noise from rear of car

    Most of the noise I hear in my 2019 M3 MR seems to come from the rear end of the car. Anyone else notice this? Anyone got it quieted down?

    screen display

    I have Santa Claus on the left side of my screen and I can't get him off. I would like to go back to the standard display. I can change the right side of the screen but not the left. What am I doing wrong??

    Error messages

    Before this last update, one day I did something that brought up a list of error messages that had appeared on screen. I don't know what I did or how I did it. Anyone know how to do that?

    Auto Pilot questions

    ===== Very true. But I have also discovered my car may need an alignment. Without Autopilot on it pulls to the right. But I do indeed have a tendency to drive close to the left side of the lane.

    Auto Pilot questions

    ==================== I got my Learners Permit in 1955 when cars didn't have power steering and I was taught to hold the steering wheel firmly. But I have discovered that Autopilot does NOT like that. I find it scary as hell to flip down to autopilot and let it take the wheel away from my hands...

    Auto Pilot questions

    ========== The blue icon for AP goes away and I feel steering come back under my hands on the wheel. I feel control come back to me. AP is gone / off. On the way back I didn't use AP at all because I don't trust it. Seems very erratic.

    Auto Pilot questions

    Yesterday I noticed the steering wheel icon went on and off and was gray. I wasn't using AP. Should it do that? Also when I was using Auto Pilot I was in the slow lane on the 202 and when I went past a right hand exit Auto Pilot would drop out. Also if I passed a concrete barrier on my right...

    Auto Pilot questions

    Is it any use in city driving? Is it worth the price? i swore I wouldn't pay that much but I'm about to break down and get it. I''m sure the day I do the next day they will drop the price to 2000 agaih. ;( What all does Auto Pilot do?

    Air conditioning problem?

    =========== I haven't had it on for awhile now. Cooler weather. I had it set to 73 but have no idea as to the humidity and such. But so far, now more noise like that when I had the heat on one moriing. Hopefully it will be ok when it heats up again.

    Air conditioning problem?

    Never heard that hissing noise before. And it quit when I turned the air off. The car understands me pretty well most of the time. It turned the air off just fine when I told it to. I think it thought I wanted to navigate to air conditioning shops though. Probably didn't understand me then. I'm...

    Air conditioning problem?

    Yes it was working but not as well as it normally does. It is like the coil is freezing and tiny bits of ice are blowing through the vent.

    Air conditioning problem?

    Yesterday as I was driving around town it felt like I was getting hit with small drops of water. I heard a hissing sound that sounded like it was coming from the dash where the air comes out. I shut the air off and the hissing went away. I pushed the right button on the steering wheel and...

    trunk opener?

    I pick up our groceries and the people who put them in the trunk tend to slam the lid. I've heard it bends easy so I'm concerned about that.

    trunk opener?

    Thanks for the responses. I thought perhaps someone ( who for some unknown reason ) might have added the screeching in. Don't know why they would do that. Which brand did you get?
  34. Arizona Willie

    Very possible. Haven't been on Usenet in years.

    trunk opener?

    Has anyone got those frunk / trunk openers? How ared they? How much noise do they make? I saw a video of it and there was a horrendous screaching noise. I was going to get them installed but after seeing that video I cancelled.

    One Plus 8 Pro phone

    =========== no i don't use the wireless charger. Most of my trips are fairly short. Longest is across Phoenix. easy enough to keep it charged at home. was wondering if it worked well with the T3 cause I've seen so many complaints about phones. I'm thinking of dropping down to the One Plus 8...

    More crap from my M3

    Got it fixed. Control arms on the front left. Strange how that affected so many things. Cost me a bit over $900 because they claim they found pain inside the fender so I hit a curb or something. I don't remember that but I have hit some potholes. Oh well.

    Tesla Ring pic

    -------------- Sorry for the delay in answering. Yes so far it seems to be holding up just fine. I don't know what they seal it with but it seems to be good. So far none of the gold paint has flaked off. Which surprises me. I'm very happy with it.

    Tesla Ring pic

    ============== Yes, it works like a key card, except that you are very unlikely to leave your hand at home or lose it. Just sorta touch your knuckle to the magic spot on the door or console to get in or drive. I hate it when the car won't let me drive without touching the keycard to the...

    More crap from my M3

    =========== I went into the app to schedule service and entered all the info etc. and after I scheduled the appointment there was a next box and touching it didn't seem to work. Nothing happened. So I'm not sure if it worked or not. Hopefully I will get an email today, if not I will try calling...

    More crap from my M3

    Yesterday, once again, driving down the road and the warnings that Hold and traction control and all those other things was unavailable. Got home and rebooted it but it still said the same thing. After sitting overnight, everything was ok today --- until I got home and took groceries out of...

    Another stupid question I have...

    Very interesting. I though Chill was slower but wanted to be sure. I've always had mine on Standard but was wondering. So now I know.

    Another stupid question I have...

    I have Chill and Standard acceleration listed. Is Chill slower or faster than Standard?
