Carmudgeonly Ride: E46 330i, Chevy Colorado, Tesla Model 3

Well I finally drove the tesla on 18" Sottozero 3's.

1. The ride is actually harsher than the 20" michelins. I'm at roughly the same PSI (42). I'm sure the ride will improve when I lower it, but I'm curious how it will impact range.

2. Totally non-scientific, but range appeared to be about the same

3. TPMS system isn't working. Get home, check paperwork to see if I need to do something to enable the TPMS... discover that I didn't order TPMS. I must have somehow unchecked the box without realizing it. FML.

The receipt says, "Customer will transfer OEM sensors"... onto the wheels and tires that I ordered mounted and balanced? An "Are you sure?" email would have been nice here.

Are you sure it was checked to begin with? Thought the default was unchecked. Checking it adds a selection/confirmation step to the checkout process.

Tire Rack charges a lot for sensors compared to other sources, but if you're buying mounted, you don't have much choice if you want them.
