Re: Talk me out of buying a Tesla Model 3

Is OP getting back his $2500 or lost it? Did OP drive the RWD or only the performance version? Yeah, I'm still curious as OP never responded to putting in a lower amperage breaker for the 240v plug. I don't see any reason he can't make it work using the existing 70amp panel. Heck, the tesla adapter...

An electric battery idle inevitably loses incremental energy (especially in a cooler climate....I have a Hybrid in MN), meaning you need to plug it in, which will cost you more in the end. Plus I hear the thin...
