    Advice on my near future purchase

    I have a dual motor long range Model 3 with white interior.. The dual motor handles great on all road conditions. I'm not a speed guy, either the pickup on the dual motor is amazingly fast. The white seats are easy to keep clean, even tough stains like ink can be cleaned out (with a little...

    Mt Vernon IL to Louisville Ky

    2018 LR AWD with 18" aero wheels and snow tires. I've travelled that leg on my way east (and back) a few times, including cold weather. Charged to 100% in Mt Vernon, set acceleration to Chill mode, speed limit to +4 mph, cabin temperature to around 65. Made it to Louisville with about 15%...

    Model 3 AWD driving dynamics compared to Dodge LX SRT8

    I'm not familiar with the SRT8, but I went from a 2001 Audi A4 Avant with a sport suspension to a 2018 Model 3 AWD. The difference between the two was in body roll, the Audi was a bit stiffer. I had the Unplugged Performance Sway Bars - Front & Rear Street & Track, Adjustable Sway Bars for...

    Supercharger - Holbrook, AZ

    Moderator note: This post plus the reply two posts below were moved from another thread. Anyone have any information on the Holbrook, AZ supercharger's status. Driving west on Rt. 40 on Friday 11/20 I was surprised when charging was limited at Gallup (busy charger) and then Holbrook wasn't...

    Vendor TEMAI Center Console Cover Kit, 4th-week lucky winner announced! FREE giveaways continues

    The central control panel decoration kit with matte black finish looks like it will help eliminate the fingerprint problem.

    Vendor TEMAI Center Console Cover Kit, 4th-week lucky winner announced! FREE giveaways continues

    The wireless charging pad looks like an intelligent design (AI pun intended). The use of an AI smart chip to protect against overheating, over current, overcharge, and over discharge is a great advantage.

    Vendor TEMAI Center Console Cover Kit, 4th-week lucky winner announced! FREE giveaways continues

    The air filters look great. Comments on other HEPA filters for the Model 3 mentioned decreased air flow, but according to your product information this filter actually increases the flow. That is a great design.

    Should I order the official Winter Tire package or ...?

    For my winter setup I ordered a set of 4x 18X8.5J Aero wheels and the tire pressure sensors from Tesla. From Tirerack I bought the Michelin X-Ice Snow tires. Installation was done at a local tire store - just made sure they could jack my LR3AWD safely. Result: cost less then the Tesla...

    Voice command not working 2020.44.10.

    After this update as usual I did a full shutdown and button reset. Didn't have mic problem but I didn't have any audio, not even turn signals. Did another full shutdown - problem resolved.

    New Tires with Higher Efficiency?

    The best place I've found to find the exact tire I want is at: https://www.tirerack.com/ You can search by multiple criteria for the model 3 in the Decision Guide and get a list of tires that meet your needs. (You don't have to buy from Tirerack, but their prices are generally hard to beat.

    2020.16.2.1

    Also took about a 100 mile trip thru Colorado's front range on twisty roads, not highway, some in town. Also agree with stop lights, although starting from lights still a little to abrupt. Biggest change: on tight twisty roads my 3 now slows down to approximately the posted speed limit for the...

    2.5 to 3.0 FSD hardware done by mobile service?

    Before I brought my 3 in to be updated a mobile tech told me: Models S & X can be done by mobile service - computer is air cooled by a fan. Model 3 needs to be done at a SC - computer is liquid cooled by main cooling system a much more complicated upgrade.

    Time to post a 2020.12.16 thread?

    I had a drive partitioned that way, but always had trouble with music pausing. Recently installed a TAPTES USB Hub, giving me an extra data connection. With this release went back to 2 separate drives. So, to your point I had already formatted both drives and had them both inserted in the Hub...

    Taptes Model 3 USB Hub

    Ordered on February 20th, received shipping notice on March 26th, received the hub today:) Works fine - worth the wait. I use a SanDisk 256GB Ultra Fit USB 3.1 Flash Drive formatted as 2 drives for the cameras and music. Plugged in to the hidden port both formatted drives are active.

    Model 3 HW3 retrofit questions, wait time, issues

    I had the FSD installed this week. I set up the appointment via the app under Other since it's primarily hardware not just software. Since officially Tesla is supposed to notify us when the retrofit is available for our vehicle; in the appointment request I politely asked if my model 3 was on...

    Reduced Range - Tesla Issued a Service Bulletin for possible fix

    You are correct - by VIN only recalls - by Year-Make-Model includes SBs. That's where I got my SBs.

    Reduced Range - Tesla Issued a Service Bulletin for possible fix

    That link is for safety recalls - not service bulletins. I did a search for any service bulletins (8) that might apply to my model 3 and sent a service request to fix any that applied (this was one of them). I did get a mobile service appointment to replace Charge Port Pin Deadfronts - a 2...

    MASTER THREAD: 2019.40.2 - FSD AutoSteer Stop Sign Warning and Adjacent Lane Speeds

    On the AP/NOA problems in this release: We just completed a 1,200 mile drive, at least 95% on NOA. LRAWD, HW 2.5. Did not notice any more problems than on our previous release 36.2.4 until the last leg of the trip. The difference was that up to the last leg we were in Chill mode. Turned Chill...

    MASTER THREAD: Winter Tires

    Just put the winter set on last week - already had a good 6" of snow - no problems. Also noted that with the Michelin X-Ice: Energy usage is about the same as the stock all-season at the same temperature noise - sound is different that all-season, but doesn't seem to be any louder.

    Winter tires Model 3

    I was able to order them online last year - but you're right I don't see them in the store now. Glad others were able to get them thru SCs. I just put my winter tires/wheels back on yesterday. What I noticed after putting the Michelin X-Ice tires back on - They have a different road noise...

    East & West Road Trips

    Two additional notes on PA's return trip: We drove thru heavy rain in WV. NOAP dropped during the heaviest rain, but AP continued to work. When we crossed time zones from Central to Mountain we were in thunderstorms and Ezri lost cell signal. As a result the clock did not change. I hoped that...

    This will be an unpopular view but...

    Agree completely - A M3 is a computer on wheels. So, as with all tech products you get more for less as time goes on. Where Tesla goes beyond most tech companies is in the continuing free upgrades, both OTA software and the AutoPilot Hardware 3 for FSD purchasers (I've never been offered a free...
