    999/1000 Tesla owners would not notice or care. I know a few people with teslas and the only one that would notice a panel gap is a car guy beyond.ca nerd like the rest of us.

    This. My boss’s Tesla has inconsistent gaps in every direction. He never noticed at all nor did he care. “Trunk closes fine what’s the problem?”

    Drove my OCD insane. Every picture I took of the car was like fingernails to chalkboard in my brain.

    So far mine's been ok. Preconditioning still gets it up to temperature quickly after a work day parked outside in the cold. It consumes a bunch of charge, but at least it works. Leaving from my house with the heated garage in the mornings is fine as expected. The only change in my routine is I jam some extra charge into the car first thing in the morning before I drive away (up to 85%). I'm getting home with about 45%.

    The RWD cars aren't great in the snow. The traction and stability control is too strong and it's frustrating to try to make the car dance. I put the slipstart on, but I'd kill for a sport mode.

    Don't heat pump cars have electrical heating as well?

    A friend of mine has one and he let me give a whirl. This echoes my sentiments, the slip-start/ice start mode lets the car get a TOUCH of angle but it intervenes pretty early. It won't do donuts on a glare ice parking lot, that's for sure. We tried. Haha.

    No, it appears they removed the PTC heater from all Teslas equipped with the heat pump. (all Model Y's and MY2021+ for the other models)

    That seems crazy for Canadian winters.

    The way I understand it, the 8 way valve scavenges heat from the battery pack / motors. But if the car is dead cold, it's worse than an ICE to get any heat at any point. As I said in another thread, California car.

    Behind the scenes Elon has been stripping these cars down. Model 3 and Y are stripper vehicles with less features than most economy cars.

    Definitely in for post-install pics! Can you also take a before/after measurement of the ground-to-front lip clearance? I'm guessing the lowest point will be right in front of the front wheels.

    Honestly I don't think it's going to be much lower then the bottom most portion of the bumper - if anything maybe 1/4-3/8"

    But will for sure do some measurements, and I am lowered with eibach model 3 performance springs, not LR ones so have a slight reverse rake in my favour

    Even better coming from someone lowered! I'm currently on T-Sportline springs (~1.25") with no rake, but do have MPP coilovers sitting in a box at home. Just waiting for it to warm up (and @hurrdurr to get off his ass to help me! ) before I install. If it's barely 3/8", I can adjust the height as needed. I find the 3's front ends are just too plain out of the box.

    I'm down to help with some coils, I wanna do some on mine. But my dumbass somehow broke the ABS sensors on the spring install so I don't really wanna do anything again haha. I really wanna do air suspension again. But too much $$$ right now
