WHAT'S DIFFERENT?? Tesla Model 3 RWD #89 VS Tesla Model 3 P3D #78712... Let's Look!Feb 27, 2020
what's up guys you want to know something cool to have an early
three it's great to have a VIN sub 100 it was even better but it came with challenges it was great riding around town here in central california and I didn't see any other
threes I didn't see none and it was great to ride around town and even have Tesla owners, other people who owned Model S & X stared at their car because it really was a unicorn, but having a car that old had its challenges there were little issues that needed to be fixed, Like the trim on the side view mirrors broke and there was some rattle in the trunk that they needed to fix and they actually improved it on newer cars and you know some of the trim didn't quite line up.
I knew all those things were probably going to happen with an 89 venn so in today's video I want to compare a sub 100 VIN model 3 with a VIN in the 78K and show you guys the differences and how Tesla has improved these cars over time. I hope you enjoy the video, so let's take a
lookat the differences between a very early model 3 VIN and a model 3 with the VIN and 78k you'll notice. some differences and some things are big some things are very subtle while other things stand out quite a bit let's start so the first thing i want to show you is the headliner on the vent 89 it came with the alcantara headliner and just over the first 2400 or so cars ever made came with this headliner it's very cool it was one of the things I loved about the car when I bought it was this Alcantara headliner and here we'll see
looks like from the headliner now it's more like a they call it cloth and it's not I don't think it's that nice yet it's not bad but it's not that nice and that's what my model 3 now high performance looks like it came with the headliner of cloth and changed it to a black Alcantara.

what s different tesla model 3 rwd 89 vs tesla model 3 p3d 78712 let s look...
I just wanted to add this so you can see the changes I've made to it here. I want to show you the difference between the trim behind the wheel on the car they see 89, they basically cut it off. and they changed that. I'm not sure what VIN they changed that to but they did change it on the later cars in Deven 89. This is what this piece of trim looks like as you can see it's cut off in this section and I'm not sure when they did it. changed it but here it is on the newer cars you can see that piece of trim goes all the way through the bottom so at some point I think Tesla changed the actuators on the doors and the vin 89 doors have a slight delay when you try Open them up and I don't know if they change that or when they change that on cars, but I wanted to show you the difference.
Andrew who is the current owner of n89 noticed this and I noticed it when I picked up my performance model 3. I noticed the doors opened right away and there was no delay so let's take a look at that let's go through a couple from examples here when i approach the car you can see how long it takes for the door to open its a very long delay and then we took a couple
differentshots when it happened again there is still a delay but its not too bad but here is my performance model 3 and look how it opens so that's the difference I think they changed the ones on the later cars we don't know for sure because I haven't taken the door apart but I'm pretty sure they updated it with the actuators from the door, so at some point Tesla changed the trunk seal. here in the 89 vent you can see the trunk sill i tried to show around so you can get a good idea of what it looks like and then here is my performance model 3 trunk seal and notice it has a little lip and i don't know if that's supposed to just make it seal better or the reason they changed it and i'm not sure exactly what VIN but i'm pretty sure any vent after mine probably has this new trunk seal on these clips i wanted show you the trunk garnish and how they changed the finish on the trunk here you can see on the red model 3 there is no trunk garnish on the top of the trunk and you can see on the bottom here how there is no truck garnish as well, if you take a look here you can see on the red model 3 in the early bin they added a piece like a damper inside this area as well i guess it was to reduce noise and i think they improved that on newer cars because in my car doesn't have that part also on my red model 3 they had to go out twice to add 3m double sided tape in that area to try to calm down the rattles and on my performance model 3 I have never had a rattle in that area so I think they improved that area over time and here on my newer model 3 the performance model you can see they added a trunk garnish under the bottom this will be hard for you to look at but I tried to do my best on the reading model three under where the trunk handle is it's rubber and when you grip it you can feel its rubber but on the performance model three on this one it's plastic and I don't know exactly when did they change that, but they also changed that at some point, so this piece was really hard to catch on camera, but if you look at the front of the dash, you can see that there's something you can see down there. and there isn't a finished part like you look at here you can see down there whereas if you look at my performance model three you can see it's finished in that area and I don't know when they decided to change that part or add that part in the manufacturing process , but the early model three VIN doesn't have that part you can see it right there and then here is my finished performance model three this is a small thing but on the early model three VIN you can see the bolts are not black and I know which is a very small thing but it's something we noticed and apparently on the newer cars they decided to use black bolts in that area so they don't stand out as much and blend in a bit more this is an issue i wanted to address and show you guys some
differentpictures on the build quality of the two cars and this is a problem that gets a lot of attention with Tesla and people refer to their poor build quality neither of them are bad but I want to show you the differences in these so here you can see that the edge doesn't quite line up, it's a bit off, but the panel gaps look great and I don't care about the panel gaps I've seen. very expensive cars have holes in the panels.
I don't think it's that big of a deal but I wanted to address it and show you there are little differences in the build quality of these cars like I said none of them are bad but here you go I can see the trim doesn't quite line up but the The panel gaps you know for such an early build car look great and here I wanted to show you the headlight and how it sits a little bit more towards the back of the gap. everything around the headlight is not quite even not bad but better on the newer performance model 3 on the newer VIN and here you can see how it lines up really well on the newer car the panel gaps are for me, they are perfect.
I didn't find any build quality issues at all with my newer black model 3 van and here's another picture of the trim and gaps on the other side you can tell all the trim lines are really nice and then here it is the headlight on the newer model 3 VIN notice how the gap around the headlight is really even and it sits there really really nice so let's look at the differences in the gen 1 seats vs the gen 2 seats I'll put these one side by side so you can see the differences you can see the bolster on the gen 2 seat is a little thicker there's more padding for me it's more comfortable sure the gen 1 seats were fine, but the gen 2 seats are definitely more comfortable also the gen 2 seats are stitched around the front side of the seat and then here we can see the back seat you can see how flat the gen 1 back seat is, There is hardly any padding its very very flat whereas the gen 2 seats made it much better and here you can see the measurements and how much more padding there is on the gen 2 seat at some point Tesla changed the key card.
Not sure what Vin is around that then changed it but here you can see the red model 3 card and then here is the black model 3 card and you can see the differences basically it just changes the graphics on the back of the card here they are side by side so you can see the differences at some point Tesla decided to change the t that is in the middle of the steering wheel from chrome to like a brushed metal here you can see on Venn 89 it's chrome and here on the cars newer ones you can see it's a brushed metal let's take a look at the glass and how Tesla has changed the rear glass since they started making the cars in ven 89 you can see the rear glass is fully UV coated and sometime Tesla stopped doing that and started coating the rear glass about half way down as you can see here and now you can take a look and see how my performance model 3 the VIN at 78K you can see how the rear glass is not UV coated on Absolutely the only thing that is coated is the roof glass on these three cars the roof glass is UV coated but each of these cars has a different UV protection on the rear glass honestly on my model 3 plus new I don't even notice the difference maybe it's because my windows are 20% tinted but I don't notice any difference at all at some point Tesla decided to change the suspension on rear wheel drive cars we don't know exactly what Vin it was we think It was around come 14,000 or 15,000 but it was around the same time they switched to the gen 2 seats and they changed the suspension and I don't have a car that has the newer suspension but I wanted to show you some clips and show you here is the original suspension on the current three models and then just for fun here's the lowered suspension on the red 3 model we used the moderate springs from the performance unplugged and then here are the moderate springs for the performance model/dual engine cars from the performance unplugged , both sets of these springs handle amazing I wouldn't go back to a stock suspension mainly because I don't like the will gap but I also like the way the suspension lowers and the way these dual rate springs handle but I just wanted to show you guys this so I decided to add this extra footage because we were having a good time and I thought you'd enjoy watching it, we decided to save the background for last, we went out into an abandoned area and decided to show you the acceleration differences between these two models. in an area that was completely abandoned no one was around and we basically went from 0 to 60 and just wanted to show you the difference in acceleration between a performance model 3 and a rear wheel drive model 3 OG was fun and no one got hurt well , some feelings were hurt but other than that it was fun we had a good time ok that's about it that's all the differences we could find between these cars hope you enjoyed the video today it was fun meeting Andrew. in Kettleman City and going over all the differences and filming all the differences on these cars.
