5 Tips for New Tesla Model 3 Owners [highlight]

next I want to talk about some kind of model three tips and tricks and again this is something that I just get a lot of questions about and so I wanted to go for go through this because I know a lot of you are getting your cars and so I just want to talk through kind of what I recommend none of these this whole section here I'm going to recommend a bunch of products and stuff and not sponsored in any way they didn't pay me to say this these are my honest recommendations the first one is elite finish who did the ceramic coating on my car and the paint correction they did a tremendous job there in San Diego but they also make this stuff called wash mitts which is a waterless wash system and it's fantastic you can wash your car virtually anywhere like while you're parked supercharging whatever in about 10 to 15 minutes with a spray bottle and a towel I've done it multiple times it's like what I do now you don't waste a ton of water you don't have to get all set up I literally keep it in my trunk I pop it out and in about 10 to 15 minutes the car looks immaculate there is a kind of a process there's like a two-step process to do it but honestly 10 to 15 minutes your car's looking amazing and you can start out we know with the set for 20 bucks or they have this kind of concentrate thing here you can get that whole thing for a hundred bucks where you get two bottles some towels and and and the concentrate you know enough to last you for the entire year easily saving you money and time and doing doing better for your car and for the environment so definitely recommend this stuff you can go check this out at wash mist calm or elite finish calm slash wash mist and I'll put a link to that in the description that step one is caring for your vehicle something to keep in mind you definitely do not want to take this to a car wash I did about a thousand dollars worth of damage to the paint on my car by taking to the taking it to a hands hands-only or like like just just using hand wash only just one time it's that crazy now I had the solid black paint which is maybe a little bit softer so you know depending on which color you get maybe you'd be okay but I just wouldn't even do it I would not recommend that at all I would go I would get something like this you can start out for 20 bucks and you'll be just you know saving in just in a better situation all around so definitely hand wash it definitely use something like this if not this one next I would say you need to figure out your your charging infrastructure so plug share comm and they also have an app is probably the best resource now there are other options out there but this one what it does is it shows you a map and let me see if I can zoom in here and it'll show you all kind of the different charging options available so if I go zoom into San Diego well you can see that they're they're different colors and there's different options by the way San Diego we just got our second super charger opened up whoo it's in downtown so super stoked on that but wherever you live this is a fantastic resource for you plug share calm and I do believe they have an app now on the website you can choose which options which types of chargers to show so for example if you have you're getting your model 3 I don't believe there's a chat mo adapter or a CCS I don't know if we really have CCS in the United States anyways and then you can kind of choose what other types of chargers you want to show so the original roadster had a different plug I don't know if you guys knew that or not but then there's the NEMA 1450 so if you have your mobile connector that'll work j'ai 1772 or one-77 – as people call it this is the standard one that most public chargers use here in the US the level 2 chargers then you have the supercharger and then the Tesla charger I don't know what the difference would be maybe a house that has one and then you can choose which network so most of them that I found are are not free some of them are and I believe even on this website there are people that will list there's like hey you know if you need it you can come charge at my house so plug share com is definitely a great place to to go to figure out where you can charge and the reason I bring it up is because you're gonna have to pay for super charging if you have a Model 3 and that it will generally be the cheapest option for you other than charging at home but if you can't charge at home you know you can use the wall outlet I just did a test a 7 day 7 days just using a regular wall outlet you can go check that video out and it works actually fairly well depending on how much you drive so you know outside of that you're going to want to you know supplement that with something and be really difficult I think to survive solely on a wanna regular wall outlet you know if you can't install one now if you can't install a home charger then don't worry about any of this install it and you'll just be good to go you go home every night you plug in but you know in addition to that this is a great resource for you so that's kind of my second tip for you is to figure out your charging infrastructure where you're gonna charge how are you gonna do it what it might cost and plug share is definitely my recommendation there now another one is if you want to plan a trip you can go to telecom slash trips and this will help you actually figure it out so if you're let's say in San Diego and you want to go to let's say Palm Springs comment you can do this get route thing it'll plan it out for you and it'll show you you know where to charge and all these kind of things you can also see destination chargers and that so Tesla's comm slash trips is a great way to do that now the next tip I have for you is basically on safety now there's two things one know your limits so if you've never driven a thought of pilot be very cautious and learn how it works and in your area how it does specifically pay attention hands on the wheel all that kind of stuff if you don't want to use auto-pay that's totally fine I you know I don't really use it because I don't drive long distance as much so there's that next thing this is like a pro tip put your cellphone in the cellphone holder and close the lid you are much less likely to reach down and grab it when you have just one extra step a one actual physical barrier from looking and/or touching your phone originally I was like why is this lid here this is stupid now I am so thankful because I do feel like it actually helps me pay attention more on the road so definitely close that lid put your phone in there that's kind of my personal recommendation now the last one is about charging and how much it may cost you so if you've not done this on my website I'll put a link to this year you can just go to Tesla no mokou look at calculators and find it down there you you can actually estimate exactly how much it's going to cost you to charge so I use the the average electricity rate in from the Energy Information Administration here in the US and you can choose your kind of driving style and how many miles that you drive per month and then it'll kind of just you know list it out for you exactly what your cost is so I'll put that a link in this in the description if you want to just go check that out if you've not done that yet you know you can kind of figure out just thinking about what you might want to pay and lastly the last thing about the model three recommendations is about what types of things accessories and things you might want to buy so I have a kit and I'll put a link to that this is a what I consider my model three essentials kit so on the very cheap end a really cool cell phone holder to put your cell phone up there when you're doing navigation I think works fantastic it solves the problem of having to look over at the screen I don't use it that often but if I'm you know growing in LA and there's a ton of traffic in 15 different freeways I can take I'll throw up ways or Google Maps and I'll just run it off there it works really well also I really love these these 20 inch turbines from Evie wheel direct you can check out the link to that there as well as the Michelin Pilot Sport 4s the ps4s tires and then you can see the dual write lowering springs that I got from unplugged performance which I'm really stoked on and in wash myths so this is kind of the last set up here if you just want to you know check it out hey this is like overall like just what Ben recommends for model 3 stuff you know I'll put a link to that there so you can go check it out you
