    Whatever this forum told me to do
    And the damn tires need to be EV rated to carry the extra weight of the MS.

    Some Mazda 3 Speed tried to roll on me. That was fun, and he did not expect that :fistbump:

    I like that guy but I think he's missing one thing.
    The standard range M3 doesn't qualify either because of the battery makeup, not enough North American components.

    I hope they bump up the max price for a car before the bill passes.

    There is going to be a large group of pissed off people (myself included) if this bill passes. I could have used the entire $7,500 credit on my tax bill last year...gotta love the feds

    yup.

    I could write a nasty dissertation about this certain bill.

    in short - there should not be ANY Gov handouts for any free market durable goods. It's not fair for open markets.

    This one is $7,500 off at time of purchase. Still BS because it automatically makes everyone's model Y's worth $7,500 less on 1/1/2023

    Nah bro, as of now no model 3's are eligible for the "free" fed pesos.
    Edit* Sorry, you're talking about the CO credit.

    MYLR & MYP will be.

    Well,
    I too have jumped onto the EV bandwagon. After a change in work circumstance I was using my Tundra to commute 60 mile round trip daily.
    Tunny was costing $1100/month in fuel costs which was unsustainable long term. Went down the Electric Vehicle rabbit hole and purchased a KIA EV6 GT LINE AWD. Its only 320bhp but super fun to scoot around in sport mode, like an electric go kart.
    Several incentives drove me to this including the $7,500 tax credit, manufacturer, utility, state rebates etc. Plus the charging for FREE at work is super nice. Sold the Tunny a month after having the EV and using the money to purchase a service vehicle/van for my side business.
    Would like to add, I NEVER thought I would got from a 5.7V8 4x4 modified Toyota to a EV and a KIA no less! I wake up and look in the mirror and ask myself who the hell am I ??

    Congrats!
    I said the same thing, when I purchased EV. They are just SO addicting and everything else almost feels like child play!
    Did you hook up a 14-50 for home charging? Its got almost 450lb torque, so I bet it scoots very quickly!

    Tesla was supposed to stop including chargers in April, but mine came with it in June and everyone still seems to be receiving them.
    I feel 32A is plenty to charge at home with, but those looking for something faster such as a 40A: (and I’m sure they want $$ for this)

    Interesting, but I’m also curious if either had pre-heated their battery just before the race, AC on/off
    The M3P has higher top end so something isn’t adding up. :notsure:

    Shared before, but the M3P should be able to hit 11.40 in the 1/4 run with great conditions on stock wheels / tires.

    Switch to the 18” and you’ll drop some (11.27 is what this one got)
