    Has anyone bought and used Drag DR-83 wheels?

    Has anyone bought and used Drag DR-83 wheels? I know that Drag isn't a great brand, but the wheels do look strikingly similar to the Uberturbines with a smaller 19" form factor that I personally prefer. I know that wheels with a similar look are available from more reputable companies like...

    MY Auto doors (Aftermarket)

    Recently I saw someone was offering this as an after market product. Has anyone had any experience with this. Is this product offered by more than one supplier? I really don't want another product from Hansshow as their support process is problematic.

    Aftermarket Tire Pressure [what tire pressure for my aftermarket tires?]

    So I just got a 2019 Model 3 Performance and this is the most fun car I’ve owned, hands down. The previous owner took the wheels down to 18 and settled for Toyo Proxes Sport 245/45 Z R18. So I said, well lets see if we can find out what tire pressure this car needs with these tires. Well that...

    Best Model 3 aftermarket wing mirrors?

    I had a semi-scary incident today, where someone was in my blind spot for a good few seconds when merging on to the motorway in the UK. I'm usually slow at changing lane, so it all ended well (I reacted just before the car's AI sounded an alarm), but it got me thinking about convex/aspheric/wide...

    Do I need to recalibrate autopilot after installing coilovers?

    I’m installing coilovers in my Model Y for a softer ride, and to give about an inch more clearance that I sorely need in my neighborhood. My question is: will this change in height affect autopilot functionality? Should i recalibrate autopilot after installation?
