    Hey guys! Spent the weekend putting together a short little series walking through some features of the P3D as well as showing off some of its awesome performance.

    I will be doing a few more and hope they are beneficial/entertaining at the same time!

    Part 1:



    Part 2:



    Enjoy!

    Would you still enjoy it if you were not going over speed limit?

    When you guys were in Mexico, at 5:30 on the part 2 video, that didn't even seem real... like a video game. Holy smokes this car is at a whole new level. Thanks for sharing! Spin that camera around and get some passenger reactions :eek:

    This was great. Camera was shaking and made it blurry, but nice to see real world driving. You were doing 85 mph on the curvy road? thats insane and awesome. Thanks for sharing!

    I own a P85D and had the opportunity to test drive a P3D recently. The P3D handling is insane for a four door sedan, it sticks to the road and when you take it to the edge it stays composed and responsive. My P85D is nimble (it has the P85+ suspension) but because it weighs 1,000 LBS more it's not as easy and it just can't keep up through the turns compared to the P3D.

    Sounds like what we all are saying is it drives like a BMW

    My fear is soon we will have a reputation like BMW driver's have. Sure, I posted a video of my insanity, driving the Sonora Pass, and perhaps it's like a rite of passage. Just not looking forward to hearing "Tesla drivers are assholes"

    The road rash behind the rear tires is insane. Especially after only a few hundred miles.

    BTW has anyone taken a paint thickness meter to Model 3 panels? Is thickness on par with other manufacturers?

    You just convinced me to wait as long as it takes to wrap mine before I really drive it. I wouldn't be able to help myself if I started and would get into it and see similar damage. I'm definitely going glossy for my DBM P3D

    The thickness seems on par.
