    Last night was the first time I have super charged my M3P. It was a 20 minute session, my question is are the sounds of popping or metal flex normal? I figure it is because on the energy the supercharger is jamming in the car or I hope it is...lol

    Yep, kinda scary if you don't know it is normal though.

    Not being a model 3 owner I can't speak from experience, however I have read a few reports and watched one of Bjorn's videos where this was a real thing about metal expansion.

    There's some kerchunks when starting, but after that, the batteries start to warm and things just expand.
