    Don't know where to ask, so I will start here. What tires are fitted to production wheels? I am no expert, but I suspect all weather tires will have more rolling resistance, and less handling ability than summer tires.

    Model 3 with surfboards...? Reality or another expression of photoshop talents?
    What you can't photoshop away is the weird (will be nice tonight! :)) design of the Prius... ;)

    Seems to be a bad photoshop use if you see the rear wheel no parallel to the rest of the car.

    Nice YouTube video of a Silver Model 3 with Aeros supercharging... relayed by M3OC member 2170pwr. Note the door handles not opening while car is locked.

    Some m3 pics I took this week. Blue, red and grey at the factory on a bright sunny day. Finally got to see the 19" wheels in person, turns out im not too excited about them (wish they were a bit more shinny (polished) and don't like the black plastic center cap.

    I still like them better than the aero wheels or the stock rim underneath.
