    Can't save headlight position/calibrate after 2023.38.6/8

    Hello, TM3 2019 LR here. After updating to 2023.38.6, the headlight position isn't saved when I try to calibrate them. I set them as I want (they move without any issue, up/down/left/right), but then once I exit the calibration the left one goes all the way down and the right one all the way...

    Has anyone in the Denver - Colorado Springs area used Status Symbol Auto Body located in Colorado Springs? Recommended?

    2021 LR (UK RHD) - Dead RH headlight + main beam

    Just noticed today that my driver's side headlight + main beam is dead. Daytime running light is fine. It had a new windscreen fitted yesterday by Autoglass and I think they talked about removing the frunk pan. Is there a chance they unplugged something accidentally? Don't know if I should go...

    Winter Range

    I've had my M3 SR+ for over 2 years so I consider myself a fairly experienced Tesla Driver or at least I did until today. We took a drive from Glasgow to St. Andrews but on the way back hit heavy rain, wind and 2C Temperature. Result dramatic Range loss and we only got Home with 6% so pretty...

    Gap between headlight and bumper

    I noticed that my otherwise perfect Model Y has a tiny gap between the headlight and the front bumper. It is symmetric and is there on both sides. It is very possible that this is within spec as I have seen it in other vehicles. I think it is due to Model 3's headlight being reused thus leaving...

    Bumper alignment issue?

    Is it normal for the older MS to have a gap between the bumper and the headlights. It doesn’t really show well on photos but you can that I can push the bumper to align it with the headlight. It’s not that bad on the facelifted s. I can’t really see any damage under the bumper either.

    I've been getting a lot of other drivers flashing me recently, and started to wonder if my headlights were misaligned - as per Tesla Bjorn's video and a number of other dormant threads on the board. Was planning to take the car into a local MOT centre to have the alignment corrected but found...

    No panic button?

    How does one invoke a panic function (honking and flashing lights) like one would by pressing the red button on the key fob of other cars? Also, it snowed and frosted today and I noticed there is no way to heat the LED headlight lens. Does Model 3 have a heat element that defrosts the headlight...

    Dynamic headlights, hope with AI?

    Just did the holiday TSO dance for the first time in a while and seeing the fine headlight control reminded me we expected some finesse with partial low beam when close behind another car or with oncoming traffic. Think we will still see this kind of control with the AI when the team gets around...

    intermittent headlight issue

    I have issue with intermittent headlight (left/driver side only). The car is 2013 model S. The service center recommends to change the entire headlight (not just bulb) for $1600. The problem is very similar described in this video. Does anyone experience the same problem ? I don't mind to...

    HID Projector Retrofit

    I've had my 2015 Model S for about a month now, and I love almost everything about it. However, coming from a Lexus RX450h with GREAT headlights, I can say that I really don't like the headlights in this car. Overall just not enough light, mainly driven by the fact that the cutoff is really...

    LED flickering

    Hello! Does anyone else notice their headlights flickering when they first turn on? Seems to go away after a couple minutes which I find odd. Any insight would be great, I am thinking of scheduling a service but wanted to see if other people experience this issue. Service center is ~2 hours...

    Hmmm Warranty Covered right?

    Was waxing the front of the car this evening and I noticed with my light all of this film on the inside of the headlight lens! I was actually surprised that the film was on the inside of the lens and not the out. Looks almost like condensation got on the inside during sealing. I would recommend...
