    Headrest material peeling off

    I haven't read all the posts, so forgive me if I state something that has already been covered. I don't think this is due to any hair product. We used to have a pathfinder (full leather) and this would always happen to 1 seat in particular. Looked greasy. I would clean it, but then it would show...

    Stock wheel questions

    I have the 19" and I had them powder coated in black. Paid $200 per wheel. It's been over a year, no issues.

    2 year maintenance

    Agree, seems cheap. Made the appt via the app, they sent a cost estimate and asked that I approve it. Says "request to check break fluid". I had them replace my cabin filter while they were here installing my HW3 computer, charged me $73 for it.

    2 year maintenance

    Tire recommendations

    There are a ton of tire threads already, sorry for adding another one, but I couldn't find what I was looking for. I have a 2018 RWD with 36K miles on it. I'm going to need new tires soon as I'm down to 4/32. I have stock 19s with the stock Continental ProContact. I haven't had any issues with...

    2 year maintenance

    so no need to book an appt for the 2 year? I had my AC filter replaced a few months ago and get me tires rotated a couple of times per year. Just check the break fluid myself?

    Model 3 HW3 retrofit questions, wait time, issues

    They just finished installing the FSD computer. Took just around 2 hours (did it on my driveway), as they also replaced the charging pins and air filters. I had to re-enter my wifi credentials, and link my phone's Bluetooth. Everything else (driver profiles, homelink, audio..) was fine. Told me...

    Model 3 HW3 retrofit questions, wait time, issues

    I made an appt through the mobile app for the HW3 install on 5/20. Received a text 2 seconds later informing me that they had to cancel the appt due to lack of parts. I received a text on 5/28 saying that the parts were in and they wanted to schedule my install. They'll be coming to my house on...

    12.11.1

    i got 12.11.1 a couple of days ago. I have paid for FSD, but don't have HW 3.0 yet. I don't see traffic lights or any of that. Do I need HW 3.0 to see that? Also, for those of you that have had their HW swapped, how did you get it done? Tesla call you?

    best model 3 license plate bracket

    noticed the bracket was askew the other day. Pulled it off and noticed that one of the magnets came out. I stuck it back in, but a few days later it happened again. I glued it in, but then realized (way too late), that i put it backwards! so now I'm using the security screws.

    Front License Plate Wrap?

    I have my front plate on cause I'm worried that if I get pulled over, I'll get a fix it for the front tint. Can you put this on vinyl (like the carpool stickers), before putting it on the car? Will you still get pulled over by some uninformed officer? Need to know that first.

    Finally put ceramic on the car. Some lessons learned.

    I was quoted $2k, so I did it myself. We in the bay have to pay.

    Rim Savers?

    What are your thoughts on these? Do they really protect the rims against curb rash? Are these secure? I just had my stock 19s powder coated in satin black and I need to figure out a way to protect them against curb rash (for when the wife takes the car :))

    well then...did not know that :) so do they sell a 3.0 non UK version?

    Finally put ceramic on the car. Some lessons learned.

    My plan is to not let it sit at all. Wipe it off as soon as i'm done applying it (CQuartz UK 3.0). I bought FlyBy 30 for the glass

    Finally put ceramic on the car. Some lessons learned.

    Pretty sure the UK 3.0 has anything to do with the United Kingdom. It's just a naming thing

    Finally put ceramic on the car. Some lessons learned.

    I'm going to do my M3 within the next couple of weeks. How long did you leave the CQuartz on for? What did you use on the glass?

    I'll have to check, but I think essence is free of oils and wax and is supposed to bond to the paint and CQuartz

    interior lights RPM vs. Abstact Ocean

    I currently have rpm ones in the trunk and the 4 puddles (all white), but im getting random flickers. Sometimes the trunk light flickers, sometimes its one of the puddles. Not sure what the issue is. Not enough current going to them, or crappy lights.

    For those of you with a ceramic coating...

    Does opticoat bond better to glass than cquartz?
  36. smjbh5

    For those of you with a ceramic coating...

    What about all the glass roof? Cermaic coat on that as well? How do you remove the water marks (on the glass) prior to applying the coat? Vinegar/water?

    For those of you with a ceramic coating...

    which polisher/compound did you use?

    For those of you with a ceramic coating...

    So I'm probably going to go down the DYI route. Doing some research on which product to use. How is CQuartz? Or Pinnicale Black? Any other suggestions?

    For those of you with a ceramic coating...

    looks like I should get other I might do this instead.

    For those of you with a ceramic coating...

    What are the pros and cons of getting a ceramic coat? I'm undecided. I received a quote for $2k. How does it handle rocks chips? Do you have to re-apply it every once in a while? how does it handle scratches? If get in a fender bender, will insurance cover the cost of re-application?

    Recommended tires M3 Long Range, RWD

    I have the 19s on my rwd, and the orginal continentals are wearing out fast. I have 10k miles and I probably have another 5k left on them. Whats a good replacement for those? The pilots?

    What’s the average Wh/mi you are getting

    220 average for the last 2k miles, I have 10K miles, but don't have a lifetime reading (changed to weekly and "tires"). since last charge is 210 @ 177miles. I have a LR RWD with stock 19s, mostly freeway driving. Drive about 400mile/week. I don't use autopilot that often. Average speed on the...

    POLL - LR RWD actual increase in range, or just software BS?

    I charge to 85%, 274 miles, that ~325 miles of range. I have a LR. 2019 8.5
  46. smjbh5

    Planning to buy Model 3

    Is this for a LR RWD, and does it include auto pilot or enhanced auto pilot? If yes, it's a good deal. Ask them to through in some rubber floor mats too.

    RPM trunk/door light flicker

    I installed some trunk and door lights from RPM. They flicker. Its completely random too as which one flickers. One day it the door, another day it's in trunk. Could it be a voltage thing? Should I try another brand?

    Experience at the Dublin CA SC today

    Yeah, not seed to send it out. They told me they were going to do the whole thing in-house. I guess it wasn't as bad as some others. They asked whether in was in the virtual queue, told them I had no idea.
