Thanks @TrevP ! Super helpful and probably needed if it clears up any confusion.

Teslas are generally very easy to use, but so many new EV drivers are coming to them that there is some unfamiliarity, particularly with charging and Autopilot. Those would be my top priorities. Charging first. Particularly where, when and how to charge: at home, over night, Level 2 or even Level 1.

Also range anxiety and why it's frankly nonsense most of the time. Oil company FUD.

Media Player will play many non-proprietary formats including MP3, FLAC, AIFF, etc.

P.S. You misspoke in the charging video. The small connector is a NEMA 5-15, the large one is the 14-50.

It's not clear in the video but when re-installing the aero wheel covers it's important to not only press around the perimeter but also in the center. The center should snap in. I suspect some of the lost aero covers are a result of not properly installing them.

Minor error in the "Steering Wheel Controls" video... states the EAP package is linked to 'Auto High Beams" which it is not, it's a Premium Package feature.

Does someone follow @TrevP around on YouTube and thumbs down everything he posts???

That’s petty AF.

Well done Trev!

Dude, it's YouTube comments. There has never been a more retched hive of scum and villainy.
LOL too true. Full of haters and trolls. But then so are most social media.

P.S. Those aren't the droids you're looking for.

Thanks for the corrections guys but without reissuing the videos I can't edit them on YouTube

Sometimes you'll get more thumbs down on your video than there are views.... Figure that one out. Not that many downvotes for these compared to the upvotes so that's encouraging.

As an experiment I released them without comments enabled and gave them a few days to gather some views. Comments are enabled now, let's see the trolls come out in droves.

Honestly I don't care, trolls will be trolls. Just trying to do my thing

Beautifully done! Thank you for doing this. In the past, I would have to search YouTube for random videos of folks. It's nice to have it all in one place.

I have recommended them to those looking for help before ordering/receiving their cars.

Thanks again!

Aren't auto high beams a standard feature? They do not mention anywhere in the manual that it is part of the PuP package. To me, it seems that auto high beams are more or less standard on new cars in this price segment (even after accounting for the TM3 being an EV). It would be quite disappointing if the non-PuP TM3 turned out to be substandard in this aspect.

Perhaps Auto high beams uses the neural network vision system to see other (oncoming) cars. If so, it might make sense for it to be part of EAP.

I see your point, but I'm not sure that theory holds. If the use of cameras/AI was the deciding factor (whether a feature is standard or part of the EAP/PuP), wouldn't the emergency braking and collision warning system also be premium features (which they are not)? From my perspective, auto high beams should be considered a safety feature, thus being a part of the base config. I have noticed that I spend considerable working memory processing capacity on spotting oncoming cars and timing the turning off of the high beams - while it could/should be used for scanning the roadside for those elks, bears (i whish...), snowmobiles, pedestrians or skiers that tend to emerge out of nowhere when driving (I, not the elks) in the dark. Admittedly, they tend to show up exactly when you meet another car - and high beams are off anyway… :rolleyes:

Thanks for the excellent videos. I have my m3 for 2 months. The videos illustrated several things I was not clear about. The owners manual is not great.

So excited, cause I have just bought a power liftgate for my Model 3, and thought it was really nice, like the video, it has made my life easier and more elegant.

Keep in mind that all Model 3s ship with neural network hardware, and some of its functions are always active regardless of whether EAP, FSD, premium, etc., are ordered or not. For example some safety features such as collision detection and avoidance/mitigation is always active in all cars, even a Standard/base model. So in principle auto-high beam could work on any Model 3 even if it used the neural network.
