Yes, but apparently is not for radar detectors because its not switchable, its always on which can kill the 12v battery..
I’d trade in tomorrow for a two door hatchback. Or, a two door hardtop convertible. The former would obviously sell much better than a convertible
Thanks Big Earl, So why are guys digging into the electrical wires looking for different ways to wire a detector? And everyone please forgive me but I'm not electrical savvyThe 12 volt is switchable. I have my radar detector plugged in here and it turns off when the car eventually goes to sleep. Even if it stayed on all night, which it doesn’t, it wouldn’t kill the 12 volt battery since that gets topped off from the high voltage battery as needed.

A tri motor plaid would be pretty sweet. Faster, better suspension, but please no yoke.Having a Model 3 Long Range w/ Acceleration boost, it doesn't seem worthwhile to upgrade to the performance. Not enough of a performance benefit for the financial hit of switching.
I have decided that I will upgrade to a new Model 3 when there is enough of a performance increase to justify it (in my mind). With that being said, what is next? Ludicrous, Plaid? Will they stick with dual motor or go with Tri-motor? Is this 1 year away or 5.... or ever?
What would make you upgrade? I have had my car for, soon to be, 3 years. However, there really isn't anything better on the market that meets my needs (or "wants") than my current car. I don't think this has happened to me before, there has always been better options after 3 years of ownership.
The other thing tesla could do to help me upgrade is make FSD transferable.. but that is besides the point of this thread.
Same. It’s the reason I plan on trading in for a Y later this year. Road trips with a family are challenging due to the limited space of the trunk in general and as you noted, the small opening.I'd like to seem them turn this thing into a hatchback already. It's already shaped like one and easier trunk access would be great.
What are these performance issues in near freezing temps? I have a 2021 M3P as well. Haven't heard of or encountered any issues so far on my car but I've only driven it 2000 miles in 6 months.
Since this is a highly speculative thread, I suspect in the next 2 years:
1) Android Auto / Apple Carplay added due to market pressure.
2) Infrared based auto wipers due to numerous complaints.
3) Suspension changes to enhance overall refinement.
4) Recaro-like seats and door cards for Performance trims.
5) Amber rear turn signals / restyled headlights
6) Minor battery/efficiency gains.
All of which to keep Model 3 relevant and other EV's come into the marketplace.
1) I remain hopeful.As you said, totally speculative but here's my take on those:
1) Strongly doubt it.
2) Strongly doubt it. They'll double down on the NN. Hard to argue "pure vision" for FSD and then add IR sensors for rain. Bad look.
4) Doubt it. They built their own seat factory to simplify and consolidate. Don't see "more" seats in their future.
5) Strongly doubt it. Just restyled headlights. Don't expect different tails either - Cost savings by using a single set of LEDs/lenses for brake & turn.
I’ll happily bet a cup of coffee we won’t see CarPlay or AA. No problem. Same for the wipers - that’s not going to happen. They’re actively trying to remove sensors, not add them. I’d rate this even less likely than CarPlay. You expect them to say “our super advanced vision processing system can’t see raindrops?” No way. Doesn’t matter whether it’s reality or not, they’d never admit it.1) I remain hopeful.
2) I remain hopeful. Hard to argue with decades of proven technology, regardless of look for Tesla Vision.
3) I haven't seen a single manufacturer not do this to improve refinement over time.
4) Since it's applicable to the Y as well, I suspect it's already cost-effective to do so as part of a price increase. The reality is that they don't differentiate the higher trim models enough for the exterior or interior.
5) Restyled bumpers/headlights are one of the cheapest ways to "freshen" an older design. Note the Y now has ambers in the rear.
6) Guaranteed once cost effective to do so.
Yeah I can see Tesla making a Model 3 Performance to your specs...then I wake up...Really the only thing I'd like to see is more color options (really want green) and doors that shut easier/better (soft close?).
So far, I actually don't miss the HUD, blind spot monitoring and 360 cameras that my BMW had that much (tho the 360 camera view is the most noticed out of all of those).
Now to entice me to upgrade to a Performance 3 in a few years? It would probably have to have a unique body kit and/or exterior accents, lighter weight (I expect this to come with 4680 cells and structural battery), more top end power and better power at lower battery levels (I'd say mid 120s trap speed at 30% battery would do it), better cooling for the brakes and battery on the track (maybe some air vents that can be uncovered for a track day?), and an 18" or 19" wheel with high performance all season tire option (the current 20's with summer tires are basically worthless for my use cases; would still need another set of wheels and tires for track or auto-x use).
