    Found my traded in Model Y, lol

    I'm trading in my 2018 M3LR w/Boost and FSD with 46k miles (red/white/19") later today for a MYP. Trade-in from Tesla was $41,800. Vroom offered $45k and Carvana $35,359 (ha!) A couple of months ago, I got a Vroom offer of $52k, so the over-inflated values of late have def started to nosedive.

    Model 3 HW3 retrofit questions, wait time, issues

    Had my HW3 upgrade completed today in Rochester, NY. Dropped off in morning, they gave me an Enterprise rental and picked up at the end of the day. Was surprised that they downgraded me from the x.8.1 to the x.4.1 sw. No biggie, I'm sure it will update again in the next day or two - I was...

    How noticeable is the acceleration boost from a dual motor long range to a performance Model 3?

    I def notice a difference, but it's not like night and day. I would say that it really depends on how much the $2k means to you. If you can afford it, you won't regret buying it.... but it's not such a huge change to make it a "must-buy"

    Near-future quarterly financial projections

    Curious to see the impact of the new $2k performance boost upgrade dropped tonight for the Model 3 AWD. Could have a considerable impact on quarterly EPS for the next few quarters. $2k is basically pure profit since it's just enabled over wifi.

    "Acceleration Boost" option, discussion as to which models and how much quicker

    That's a really good question. I just purchased the upgrade, but might have thought twice about it if range was reduced. Seems like if that was the case, they would have to mention in the purchase disclaimer.

    For AWD owners wanting a P3D-

    If the upgrade is possible, I really don't see a downside for Tesla and don't understand why they wouldn't offer it. Whatever they charge will be 100% pure profit and cash in the coffer. Initially, it was argued that it would tick off the existing P3 owners, but I think that ship has sailed...

    Aftermarket Wheels on Model 3

    I just weighed mine on my bathroom scale, which may not be super accurate, but they weighed 24.8 lbs each. Surprisingly, the 10.5" weighed the same as the 9" - not sure why... They are beautiful and were very well packaged. I'm excited for warmer weather so that I can get them installed...

    Aftermarket Wheels on Model 3

    Just thought I'd pass along a great deal that I found. 305 Forged Wheels has their 5x114.3 FT101 flow-formed wheels in the 20x9 (+32), 20X9.5 (+25) and 20X10.5 (+42) wheels for 45% off. Total for 4 is $950! I ordered yesterday and wheels were shipped (from CA) same day. Ground shipping for...

    My belief is that they are trying to prevent having to retrofit any additional cars with the new hardware as FSD rolls out. Additionally, I believe they will increase the FSD cost (maybe significantly) when it is finally available, depending of course on the competition with other carmakers’...

    DashCam - Caught accident

    CA is the only state where lane splitting is legal. I personally believe that if a motorcycle is lane-splitting, they should automatically be fully liable and at-fault for an accident unless there’s a clear violation by the vehicle. How does Autopilot react to a lane splitter?

    Model 3 Software Updates

    Question... Once you get the notification of the update on your phone, how do you tell the car to update? I thought this was possible, but couldn’t figure it out - ended up just going out to the car and starting it.

    AWD delivery thread

    I disagree and really have to give kudos to all the Mt Kisco employees. The pandemonium was created by Tesla corporate - It wasn't the local delivery centers' fault. They were saddled with an impossible task. They normally do less than 10 deliveries a day and were then suddenly tasked to do...

    you don't need to add car to insurance policy on day of pickup...just have to show proof of coverage. Insurance companies give you a period of time (72 hrs??) to add car to policy - you are fully covered in the interim.

    I ordered a Performance 3. The car at delivery was an AWD.

    Maybe at the same time, they could offer P3D owners a free or inexpensive uncork to Ludicrous to appease them.
