I've been offered one of the earlier Model 3's, US-imported in 2018. Getting a correct US charger rather then an adapter plug seems the smallest challenge.

The car seems to have the improved Autopilot. The issue it only connects through wifi/hotspot, and the satnav only accepts Canada, USA and Mexico, which is an issue while driving in Europe.

So, at this moment it is a great RDW long range vehicle. Any chance to get the proper functionality?

(just learned that the car comes with a CHAdeMO adaptor as EU does not only have different powerplus, but also a different outlet at the car side. Supercharging is sadly not possible, so a car with hindrences on long hauls. Interesting to see whether this can be converted, but only after the Satnav issue is resolved…)

Look up for Emmc replacement sites and forums. Some of the people offering this service might be able to help you with your questions.
All the Western Europe, Ukraine, Poland import American and Canadian salvages TESLAs, fix them and put them back on the roads. I’d say many smart IT and mechanics could be found from that region. Good luck

Thanks for the reply. Sush a hardware replacement, and then still the issue of a different charging outlet incompatible with Tesla Superchargers seems too much of a hassle for the small price advantange this particular M3 would have.
