    HEPA filter retrofit to Model S

    It wasn't in my wife's X, but that's about normal in my S.

    Trunk opening and closing slow

    Finally upgraded to a refresh Model S last month, and I have to say, while I got used to the much smaller frunk, the trunk is what's been giving me the most grief. I ship a lot, and often will bring packages to UPS, USPS etc. The trunk on this Model S (and all newer ones?) opens MUCH slower...

    Gen 1 HPWC with newer Model Xs?

    Yep, that's the email that wen't unanswered. I originally contacted ownership and they told me to email that address. Don't bother, just keep calling until you finally get someone.

    Corrupted USB in 2019.5.4

    I popped a brand new stick into my S on Wednesday. Yesterday (Saturday), I got back in the car and the icon and my music was gone. I never pulled the stick out from the first insertion. The only thing I can think of is that yesterday afternoon I hopped in the car and the screens were dead. Took...

    Corrupted USB in 2019.5.4

    2 Separate USB sticks toast. One partitioned, the other single volume. 2 different types of USB sticks too. Now neither will last long in my computer before it stops reading and disconnects.

    HEPA filter retrofit to Model S

    I got a new S that came with biodefense mode enabled, but compared to my wife's X, it doesn't really seem to do much. Following her home the other day I mentioned when we got home how biodefense didn't seem to work on manure. She said hers handled it just fine. Anyone know how easy it is to pop...

    Media player and MP3 on USB

    I thought Tesla fetched their own images from the net?

    Gen 1 HPWC with newer Model Xs?

    I was so happy to have a solution I didn't even consider destination chargers. With the longer range from the 100kwh pack (and losing the P), we haven't even needed to supercharge yet. I will have to keep the destination thing in mind though as we tend to look for those when heading to beach...

    Gen 1 HPWC with newer Model Xs?

    After a month of unanswered emails and voicemails, I FINALLY got someone at Tesla (I first emailed ownership, they told me to email the HPWC dept or call them -- did both, multiple times, to no avail). I was told there's a firmware issue with the GEN 1 HPWCs and the firmware in 100Ds. I was...

    Perforated seats durability?

    They replaced them due to small tears in the perforation. They did it completely under warranty. I'm wondering if they just stopped doing it since it has been a few years and they've moved on to (what I assume are) new materials.

    Perforated seats durability?

    Yikes @ that hole Same situation here. Though they replaced our seats, the new white ones were shorter and less comfy. The black is more comfortable and worry free.

    Firmware 8.0 - For Classic Model S

    Experience the same. It no longer results in the system locking up/rebooting, so easy enough to ignore it.

    Model X 90kWh battery pack degradation

    That's more usage than degradation

    Gen 1 HPWC with newer Model Xs?

    Somewhat glad to see we are not alone. Will ring Tesla and see if they have any recommendations. In the interim, I'll only charge the S with the older HPWC. As for lowering the rate, that could work for most times, but the one reason we returned and re-bought another X was for the 72A charger...

    Gen 1 HPWC with newer Model Xs?

    We've had 2 of the first gen HPWCs for years (since about late 2012 IIRC). Recently (last month), one of them failed and the contactor would no longer close to start the charge. Was a very odd situation, but in the end I moved on since Tesla replaced it anyway. Fast forward to Friday, we bring...
