    500 + Mile Range Debate

    iirc, M3 owners see quite a drop with say 12 months. May be 10%. Would you agree with that or do you think it's more linear and progressive? What's a 'normal' figure for say 4 years? Using Teslafi?

    500 + Mile Range Debate

    Is that really normal / common? My Renault Zoe (40kwh, real 150 to 180 mile range) showed 7% loss of battery health and almost no evidence or real world range over 4 years / 35k miles. My 2019 model S R LR still shows 365 to 373 miles based on Teslamate data. I do agree that extra battery...

    Wiki Sudden Loss Of Range With 2019.16.x Software

    Agree. If Tesla disable supercharging on salvage titles, isn't there the same risk with non-Tesla rebuilt batteries? Tesla would supposedly bend over backwards to replace like for like with little or no increase in performance (although I forget how many saw the 350v 'new' replacement...

    Moved into the catering business? 🤨 Flame grilled.

    Stupid sensor. Why did they even bother with that sensor? All it does is corrode, degrade and wear out. No other purpose evidently, and not even a warranty item!

    From my point of view, it's the lack of words. The early warranty doesn't actually say what the battery should do even though it says how long it should do it for. No legal claims from me. Just observations. If this was just a wear and tear issue, it would not be reversible. The warranty does...

    FSD Beta Button in the UK?

    IMO the main issue is lack of airflow. The gortex patch and air vent vs sealed enclosure seem significant factors. The main front camera is heated and sealed. Not sure why they didn't adopt the same approach for B-pillars. Good that you find preconditioning works for you but for me once there...

    FSD Beta Videos (and questions for FSD Beta drivers)

    I've seen several comments by beta testers about taking certain road sections way faster than they would have done. Also seems common for testers to dial down the speed to coax fsd through difficult scenarios. What is the current state of speed modulation? I don't see it discussed much but it...

    FSD Beta Button in the UK?

    It would most likely fix the condensation issue. I did some tests with very gentle warming of the camera window from the outside and it hardly took anything to clear the glass. I don't know about compatibility with camera imaging. Again, even minor retrospective changes that include wiring /...

    Of course nothing guaranteed and common sense rarely seems to come into the picture with Tesla, but IF their test were to determine that you have (effectively) what they have catagorized as similar to a manufacturing defect, then that might be the basis for trying to get them to fix it as such...

    FSD Beta Button in the UK?

    I think protection for edging out with reduced visibility would be a huge help and retain b-pillar cam's too. There was talk somewhere on TMC about feasibility of multiplexing in more video for retro-fitting, or using some kind of wireless solution. I think the consensus was that any wired...

    FSD Beta Button in the UK?

    Leeds SC told me they had ordered new parts for both b-pillars a couple of years ago. When I pushed them as to why they thought the replacement part would help, they acknowledged that it probably wouldn't! So I said 'don’t bother!'.

    FSD Beta Button in the UK?

    It seems so obvious to have side facing cameras as far forward as possible - especially since you have the rear facing side repeaters - that I can only think there was some good reason they didn't go that route. If the b-pillar condensation issue was evident from the outset, then you'd think the...

    FSD Beta Button in the UK?

    If it is possible to work out what those obligations are! The only light I can see there is that given the resources Tesla is putting into FSD, it must feel under some obligation. The trouble is who it feels that obligation is to.
