Model 3 and Y have different suspensions, whether the Model Y gets newer suspension components have no bearing on the Model 3.Yeah that would be the comparison I've been searching for. I'd also like to know if the LFP rwd m3 did get the upgraded suspension components or not.
My friend went from a 2018 M3 to a 2021 MY and he said the MY had a much better ride, in his opinion.@m888x Model 3 has long had better ride quality and overall better suspension tuning than Model Y. When I test drove MYLR M3LR M3P in fall 2021, both the Model 3's rode much better than the MYLR (even M3P with the super low profile tires). Both 3's were also more fun to drive around turns, as is usually the case comparing a sedan to a crossover.
I haven't driven an LFP RWD Model 3, but I'd bet it rides at least as good as the new "comfort" Model Y suspension, if not better.
Last I knew every Model 3 came with matrix headlights, except when Tesla temporarily ran out of the parts and suddenly they didn't. I haven't kept up with matrix headlight availability though. Unfortunately that shortage incident made it clear Tesla doesn't promise that any given car will have them.
I got a 2023 RWD in December and checked the suspension parts against the parts catalog and saw that there are no new suspension parts for the 3 and mine is using the same parts that have been in use for a while. Elon tweeted that 3 / Y got upgraded comfort suspension in October, but as far as everyone can tell, he misspoke and meant to just say Y.
Yes, because that's comparing 2018 to 2021. The Model 3 has also been softened up over the years. Older ones were firmer.My friend went from a 2018 M3 to a 2021 MY and he said the MY had a much better ride, in his opinion.
@rotarypower101 Changing wheel size / tire sidewall is noticeable, but it doesn't change the feeling of the suspension. That's separate. Neither is a substitute for the other. I've changed out both on my car, first wheel downsizing, then suspension/coilovers.If anyone can comment, how much different does the suspension feel with the various wheels sizes avalible? 18" > 19" > 20"
Is it even noticeable? And if so where specifically?
Thank you for commenting on that detail, looking for information on wheel size "feel" and hard to find someone explicitly making that comparison and distinction that has physically tried and tested wheel sizes on these and given feedback clearly.@rotarypower101 Changing wheel size / tire sidewall is noticeable, but it doesn't change the feeling of the suspension.

Going from 235/35R20 to 245/45R18 while still on stock suspension, the extra sidewall smoothed out the small stuff, and took the edge off the ride, but it didn't transform the ride at all. The car still essentially rode the same, except with less harshness. Noticeable improvement? Definitely. Transformative? No. The ride was overall smoother but the stock suspension (2021 M3P) still struggled for composure over rough stuff, same as before.
