Pick only one thing. Yes, I know it's difficult.
I drink a lot of coffee, and I appreciate the perfectly placed cupholder.
No compromises practicality.
The technology in the car.
The ability to pick a song on demand depending on my mood -- or the earworm I'm stuck with.
The go pedal
Definitely the tech!
Going to do something dangerous and agree with Magic 8 Ball, the go pedal
Putting no carbon in the air. (It’s hard not also listing things 2, 3, ... ∞.)
Charge at the office!
Don’t know yet, picking it up this afternoon.
A full “tank” every morning.
bay area carpool and express lanes... though that isnt specific to the Model 3
Specific: feeling of my butt dyno
I'll play. The way the go pedal makes my butt dyno feel! Happy to know the correct technical term now. ;-)
Hmm...I think I didn't do a good job articulating myself.
I wasn't asking for your favorite feature in the car, I hoped to hear about the feature that reflects your personality the most.
If you(only as an example) like instant gratification, and appreciate instant torqe.
I'm really hoping to find the more subtle winning aspects of the car that are easily missed, but are still powerful - just because they connect with the people.
That it has ZERO EMISSIONS. The point in building the car. Tesla's Mission Statement. There's really nothing that Tesla does that is better tech than other cars other than being all-electric.
Continuous OTA improvements/upgrades.
Kids that “get it.”
Some completely freak out just seeing it.
I had a close friend’s high schooler weep.
She WEPT with joy. WEPT.
The minimalism of it's design
@landoncube Interesting. Thanks for sharing.
@vmulla Even with this clarification, my answer stands. I love that the car drives like a rocket ship on rails. That makes me feel like a kid again and touches the most precious part of my soul. This car "gets" me.
1 thing -- 2 words.....
Over the air updates to add features and fix bugs.
@vmulla - technology still stands as I posted. I am in technology and use technology all around my house, at work, and now in my M3P
It looks to the future. put another way: continuous improvement
See through roof.
its everything I wish I was
well done llbean: "no gas"
The sensory experience when it's floored. Nothing like it. P3-
Yeah, Zero emissions is number one. We are totally screwing the planet with greenhouse gasses. I’d like to leave a little, just a little of the beauty of nature to my kids and their descendants. Not likely, I know but still . . .
You are buddy. You are.
Anybody mention emissions mode yet?
The Minimalist Zen design.
The efficiency of it and I’m not just talking about energy efficiency. I especially appreciate the efficiency of “filling up the car” (aka charging) in my sleep.
EV + Solar panels + stick it to coal/oil lovers
Peaceful prep for work, drive my commute playing the streaming Spa channel. Calm start to the day.
The beautiful logic of the operational controls.
Different without being ostentatious. Practical.
Music sounds so great in this car that i have spiritual experiences often. I am listening to jazz written by, arranged by and performed by very high level artists. For example, "I Will Wait for You", written by Jean Michel LeGrand, arranged by Tamir Handelman, and sung by Angela Hagenbach. Perfection!
Ok, back to the original premise of this thread.
I have always been a “continuous process improvement” kind of guy. I get satisfaction with every nuance of improvement in the march toward full self driving. It’s something I notice with almost every drive of the car.
The blue makes my eyes pop.
For years, I've heard people refer to their car as their "new toy". Which I get but with normal cars, the novelty wears off (mostly) and you just have a car after a while. I'm a technologist and tinkerer by nature, so I love the fact that the car gets new features, interactions and continuous improvements.
As far as the tinkering is concerned, I've been including Tasker (android) automation to do certain things for me, like starting my AC in the morning before I leave for work. My latest project was to configure a Raspberry Pi Zero to auto-archive my dashcam vids to my NAS drive, sync it to the cloud and auto-remove any video older than 10 days. I no longer have to remove it from the port to clear it out or review the videos!!!
Oh, and it's CRAZY fun to drive. :)
Mine makes me optimistic about the future.
