    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...

    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 :))

    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?

    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

    Thought I'd share my experience at the Dublin SC today. I took the M3 in to have the items on the due bill addressed. I bought the car in October and there was some fitment issues with the rear doors and trunk. I drive up to the drop off area, and there were only 3 other cars there. I was a...

    New “50mph” caution

    has anyone seen this before? I get this caution thing once I hit 50 mph. I can understand seeing this on residential/side streets, but im getting it on the freeway as well. Started noticing it a couple of days ago (before I receive the sentry mode update)

    rattle coming from front passenger door

    I just noticed a rattle coming from the front passenger door. Hear it as I accelerate/break on a smooth road. Basically anytime there is tension/torque on the frame. Anyone else notice this?

    Model year?

    My car was manufactured in 10/18. Is it a 2018 or 2019 model? If it was an ICE car, it would probably be considered a 2019 model. Does this concept of "model year" apply to Teslas?

    Have a nail in my tire

    I have a nail in my tire. A few weeks ago, the TPMS card indicated that my left rear tire was low, 36psi. I pumped it up with my compressor to 42psi, and it's been fine ever since. Today I notice a nail, there was not warning on the TPMS card or anything, still shows the tire at 41/42psi. Tesla...

    Tint the "sunroof"?

    For all of you who have already or are interested in tinting your windows, what to do with the sunroof? My tint shop tinted mine. I didn't pay for it, they said it was included in the price. Not sure whether I like it or not. It's kinda dark. Not sure whether I'll keep it on. Taking it off...

    Is frequent changing bad for the battery? I usually charge at work everyday (cause it free), but only get about 60 miles worth, I top up at home a couple of times a week to get it to around 85% of capacity. Is this too frequent?

    Auto park issues with V9?

    When I try to back into a parking spot, the auto park symbol would show up, I would press it and sit back. Ever since I installed V9, seems like the auto park feature is no longer available. I'm parking in the same spot, so it's not that, and the lines are clearly visible. What's going on?

    Tesla not honoring referral code

    My uncle gave me his referral code to use when I ordered my M3. I couldn't use it when I ordered the car because it was only valid on the MS, MX, and PM3. I placed my order on 9/29. On 10/4 they changed the referrals to be eligible on all M3s ($100 superchaging credit). I called Tesla and tried...

When my phone is locked, it still unlocks the car doors. Anyway to make this more secure? Log out of the app or something?
