    HRE FF01 wheels discontinued

    Seems like HRE confusingly discontinued the FF01 wheels for the Model 3. This is a headscratcher as this is their best looking wheel and there are tons of 3's being produced. Are any shops still stocking these wheels in 20"?

    Rear wheel liners coming apart

    Both my rear wheel liners in the wells are pulling apart. When I hit big dips on the freeway I’m sure the wheels would scrape them since the liner is in the path of the wheel travel. I didn’t see how they can pop back in anywhere on the fender. Is there a fix for this?

    Can't fast forward Sentry Mode recordings after new update

    Has anyone experienced this? I used to be able to fast forward to any part of the sentry mode clip recording. But after the latest update, the clip goes all the way to the end when you fast forward. This is getting difficult reviewing recordings without a fast forward function.

    Tesla is not honoring demo discount

    When I picked up my P3D+ in March, the sales matched me up with one that had a $1,080 demo discount. It had a hundred or so miles on it. On the day before pickup, he re-matched me with another "demo" car with only 50 miles. He mentioned the same discount will apply. I should receive the refund...

    Basic AP owners

    I have basic AP equipped in my 3 (not FSD or EAP). How does ap handle freeway junctions? Are you supposed to disengage AP everytime there is a junction, or when the freeway splits? What about freeway turns? For example a 65 zone enters a 40 mph turn. Will ap know to slow down in time for the...

    Automatic Car Washes

    With Teslas now being mass produced, there are tons of non enthusiast owners who have no idea on maintaining paint. On the Tesla fb groups, most owners run their cars through automatic car washes regularly, non touchless at that and all say it has no ill effects. I'm not surprised since fb group...

    Sentry mode recording cut short

    Lately after the 12.1.1 update, I’ve been noticing that the last saved clip of a sentry mode event is cut short. When an event occurs, usually the last clip or the one before (with all 3 camera angles) is the one that triggered sentry mode. At times, the last clip would be cut short to about 10...

    Lost 95 miles in 2 weeks while on vacation

    not too worried about it, but does this seem in line with what people are normally getting in terms of vampire drain? I left with 245 rated miles left and came back to about 150. Seems a bit high for 2 weeks in sitting. My car stays in a garage in the 60’s temp range.

    Non AP deliveries- are you ordering AP before price increase?

    For those that didn't order AP at delivery, are you ordering AP before the price bump? Even though basic AP doesn't include lane change, I feel like $2k is a pretty solid deal for traffic awareness cruise control. I don't commute, which is why I didn't order AP at delivery but it seems like a...

    Recent 2019 deliveries should get AP

    Just spoke with Tesla and they mentioned owners that took deliveries of their vehicles in 2019 should get some sort of autopilot depending on your original ap config.

    Tesla Rate Match approved

    I submitted a pre-approval letter from my CU for 3.25% vs Tesla's 3.75% rate over 60 months and they approved the rate refund within an hour.

    Sold my AWD non P for a Performance

    Just sold my awd non P and bought a Performance. I originally got a $1080 inventory discount for a 300 mile P but was re-matched with another P at the last moment with 60 miles. Not sure why I was rematched but I think it was because I removed autopilot at checkout which the original one had...

    Demo Model 3's

    A rep tried to sell me a demo Performance today with 600 miles and a $1600 discount. What seemed weird was he said you cannot look at Demo vehicles before delivery. Is this the norm? I know those 600 miles are hard stop light launch miles but if the vehicle is in new shape otherwise, I would...

    I’m trying to pinpoint a rattle coming from the driver front area, and noticed a piece of black plastic that is loose and rattling. It’s located behind the corner of the driver side hood.

    Is tsportline and unplugged “ricey?”

    I’ve been through the days of lowriding bodykit cars and I thought it’s a bit past that but I’ve been seeing a lot of the same stuff only on Tesla’s.

    NEMA 14-50 installed

    just got a NEMA 14-50 installed right under my breaker box. Cost would’ve been the same for the hpwc but I didn’t need the extra power. It was $500 which seems to be on the lower end in the Bay Area. Seems to charge at around 26-29 mi/hr at 32amps.

    The Tesla hate is real

    It was my first time driving out to SF and parking on the streets since I bought the car 2 weeks ago and it has already been vandalized.
