    Brake Dust Brand New Model 3 (Help)

    Zero brake dust. Having said that I hardy ever use my brakes!

    Tinting only side windows?

    25% tint on the sides, 5% on rear and absolutely nothing on the front. I would only tint front if I was never going to drive at night!!

    I saw that...it was your final words of 'range good enough' suggesting that range anxiety isn't an issue as the current range on the vehicles is good enough. I would argue that point, hence my reply.

    My post is valid. You were saying the current range is enough...hence my reply.

    There you go again, you are just looking for the answer YOU want and already have in your head. Total inability to see others perspective. Its quite obvious BOTH will drive more adoption. Longer range will switch more ICE owners and cheaper will ensure larger numbers of less well-off who can buy...

    Who is talking about anxiety from range? The vast majority of owners want more. If you don't, good for you. What is 'good enough' for you wont necessarily be good enough for others. What if I told you your salary was 'good enough' and no more raises for you? Your home was 'good enough', don't...

    Then your point was nonsense. Extra range incentivizes people to move from ICE to EV as an EV then requires charging around the same amount of times as an ICE needs fuel. I think you can see from these comments that you are on your own when it comes to not wanting more range!

    Makes your point? Hardly. Your point was people don't need more than 250 miles range if we had infrastructure everywhere it could possibly be needed. I agree with that but we don't have that yet, nor is it likely in the next couple of decades, if perhaps ever. Bigger batteries to go further are...

    Actually the range was between 130-200 miles. Model T had a 10 gallon tank and economy was between 13 and 21 mpg according to Ford...not bad considering...about as far as a Tesla M3 SR in a Nebraska winter...

    You are talking reducing the size of the battery (ie making it cheaper) but through efficiency get the same mileage a larger battery gets today? Sure, Tesla will always offer SR models for people that just city drive (Model 2?). For people that like choice and can afford it, there and always...

    To borrow a phrase...you are looking at it short term...batteries will get more efficient...range will follow! Long Live Range!

    He would be incentivized if there are more electric cars on the road. THEN landlords will be incentivized to get these chargers as they will bring tenants...cars first, infrastructure follows...same as gas stations for ICE cars a hundred years ago.

    What cars are more fun to drive than a M3P?

    You must be over 7' tall. I'm 6'6" and my 3 is very comfortable.

    That's not more range...that's available now...people want 500+ nowadays

    We'll agree to disagree then. You are the first person I have come across who doesn't want more range! Tesla even makes LR versions!
  20. TexasTezla

    Plaid+ CANCELLED

    Agreed but that takes MUCH more time than just adding a larger battery. To keep the momentum going you need to do both.

    Er, I think it likely to be using larger batteries in new cars rather than modifying current vehicles! I for one would prefer a larger capacity battery and go further between charges. If you just pootle around your town and have your own home charger then maybe not for you, but for people that...

    Many apartment dwellers buy Model 3s. Granted, likely not many Model S owners but I'd like a 500 mile range on my 3P too!

    And if I can go to the grocery store charger fewer times because I have longer range I win, right?!
  28. TexasTezla

    Plaid+ CANCELLED

    Well, I think bigger batteries are somewhat easier than changing tens of thousands of apartment blocks in North America...for now at least! Also, as battery tech improves it might not necessarily mean bigger batteries, just better management?

    Extrs mileage used once or twice over the life of the car? What about people that live in apartments that don't have home charging? Extended range is a godsend for them as it means fewer trips to a supercharger...also great on road trips (which I do once or twice a quarter) to areas of the...

    Hansshow are just resellers, not manufacturers. All these items are made in some sweatshop in China and then branded out. If this is the same product then how come this brand is offering the product at $180 cheaper than the 20% discounted Hansshow product? As for going to another forum, I'd...

    License Plate Ordeal

    I have bashed into the snapplate twice now and it does indeed break first. No damage to grill at all. First time I just glued the small piece that broke off, second time I reached out to snapplate and they sent me a new piece FOC (YMMV on this).

    Issue with keyless entry with iPhone 12s and iPhone 12 minis?

    No issues here with iPhone12 Mini. I usually keep my phone in back pocket and only twice have I had to turn my backside towards the door before opening. I'm guessing signal issues through my belly fat! LOL

    Might help if you say where the plate is from? Lisburn UK? Lisburn PA? Having said that I think the V750 is a UK document...?

    License Plate Ordeal

    Snapplate is a great option if you don't want a permanent plate. Also, the wrap is only good for CA folk. To each their own but just remember when people say "it is the best' they are only considering what is best for them.

    First road trip in my M3P

    I sometimes charge to 100% before the off on long trips. Just as long as you start off and don't let 100% sit there, you wont have any issues. Don't forget the Tesla battery guarantee!
