...and heated steering wheel with any luck.
Got the fast charger installed this morning (32A 3 phase), so we are a two-charger family now, just hoping I get a car to plug into the new charger sooner rather than later. I have to relinquish my Subaru XV to one of my sons who needs it for his uni course industrial year and there will be a fight otherwise each weekday morning over whether I get to go surfing or he goes to work (since my wife wisely doesn’t let my surfboards, wax, wet surfing gear and assorted crap into her nice car).
Back to the snow ability of the Model 3, while I can see from the power read ours that the front motor “kicks in” under acceleration I don’t think it is sensible from the safety standpoint for the car programmed the way it is now to be exempt from the NSW chain laws as an AWD mainly because _zero_ of the Model 3s here would have winter tyres on them as Bjorn has in his tests in Norway and with summer tyres (I am guessing Tesla don’t ship with an all-season tyre as standard in Australia) and that drive programming it would be diabolical in the snow. I already have a set of chains for mine ($180 or so direct from Tesla if anyone is interested) but I think I will be driving my wife’s Cayenne PHEV or borrowing my XV back from my son rather than taking the Tesla up in winter - for all the many reasons in this thread...
