    2016 Model X 90D vs 2017 Model X 100D (Features vs Budget)

    Hello All. Thanks in advance for any replies. I am currently an owner of a 18 M3 LR RWD and while I do like the car, I am in need of something much bigger and definitely will be trading my M3 for an X. I prefer the 6 seater above all other configurations and the MY is off the list for me. I...

    How Long Does Wall Connector Installation Take? I'm WFH, Need a General Estimate for How Long Power Will Be Out.

    Hi Everybody, I think I'm going to go in and buy a Model 3LR, assuming I can get it in time before the tax credit potentially goes away. Anywho, I'm wondering how long a Wall Connector installation would take. It's not so much the amount of time that the overall process takes that matters for...

    When Do I Give up on my 90,000km 2013 Model S?

    My Model S ran amazingly and needed minimal service for the first 8 years. It's low mileage but had been in 2 major accidents and still drove really well after these incidents. Ironically, after my warranty completely expired last year, it's been nothing but trouble. I had the suspension...

    Clear Bras a good idea?

    With that expansive front on Teslas, is getting a clear bra a worthy investment? I realize those things can trap dirt at edge and yellow over time, need replacement, but repainting can be just as expensive. Thoughts? (looking on a M3, but can be for all models.)

    Can anybody help me out?

    Well, I own a model Y right now, and I’m thinking about refit my wheels to aftermarket wheels. The problem is that all aftermarket wheels that I prefer are really big wheels. I'm afraid that those big wheels won't fit, what if they scratch the fenders or brake calipers? So I search on the...

After placing the order, I noticed that the base price was dropped for the 75D and the power lift gate was added as standard.

    Is Model 3 a good first car?

    Do you think Model 3 is a good first car? Or do you think its lack of a traditional engine may be detrimental to a beginner (e.g. because of care, learning to shift gears, too much driver assistance)? Assume one can easily afford it.
