Custom Tesla Model 3 First Drive – Video

1 day ago by Steven Loveday 16

Check out this detailed Tesla Model 3 first drive, complete with a closer look at some key features.

Tesla Model 3

Erik shows us how he accesses the car with the key card. Since the vehicle doesn’t belong to him, he doesn’t have mobile phone access.

DÆrik is at it again. Yes, he’s the same guy that has his own Tesla showroom and homemade Supercharger in his garage. Erik was able to get ahold of a customized Model 3 compliments of Tsportline. This means that not only is the car unique but also that the review tends to focus in on some of the company’s work.

We can only imagine that Tsportline gave Erik the car with the agreement that he would provide some plugs. Oh well, anything to get your hands on a Tesla Model 3, right?

For those who aren’t familiar, Tsportline is a Tesla-specific automotive tuning company that focuses on aftermarket accessories like specialized wheels, carbon fiber body kits, and custom interiors. As you can see in the video, this Model 3 has custom seats, a tint package, a blackout package, and custom rims. Actually, the car has 19″ matte black rims on one side and gray on the other.

Erik spends a bit of time talking to Autopilot 2 and showing off the various cameras, including the one inside the Model 3 cabin. He says that he plans to release many more videos over the coming days pertaining to specific facets of the Model 3.

    After all the complaining about there not being enough Model 3 videos due to the NDA, I wonder how long it will take for the EXACT SAME posters to complain about there being too many videos of the Model 3?

      Boy I’m really getting tired of all these videos of the model 3.

      There you go Nix.

    It’s ugly because the Aereo wheel covers are not on.
    😛

    non stock Tesla wheels are a no no.

    I like the black 3. If I do trade “down” from my Model S, I’ll get it in black, but I plan to wrap the front end in copper. Get it?

      It would be the world’s biggest and most expensive Duracell

    These 2 kids in this video are just too cute for words.

    His “supercharger” is a level 2 charger in a faux supercharger stall. Amazingly fanboy and complete waste of time.

      I don’t see it as any different than ICE enthusiasts who have restored antique/vintage gas pumps in their garage. Heck, those don’t even work. This one is at least functional.

      He certainly isn’t the first person to do something creative with their charger. Heck, some folks have even taken old gas pumps and converted them into charging stations, like this one:

      1. Steve says:

        It’s different when publications are calling it a supercharger.

    Do ya think T-Sport and the car’s owner will notice the donut skidmarks on the parking lot?

    Just the reason I’d never buy a rental car.

    Like the black with silver, the stealth black with black wheels? A bit too much black.

    When I saw pictures of this car the other day, I commented that it had too much distance between the tires and wheel wells. Adjustable air suspension like on it’s more expensive brethren would be nice.

    Wonder how opening the door after icy rain will go as the window has to drop before opening… might need to pre-heat the car.

      BMW has had the same system for more than a decade. It really isn’t a problem.
