    What vin comes with 3G vs 4g LTE?

    I have a P85DL built in June 2015, vin 888xx and it has LTE.

    Heated Steering Wheel? Indicated by Metallic Scroll Wheels?

    No, no other announcement source, as I mentioned after this. My mistake. All we have are the rumors, the maybe-coincidental change to the steering wheel (scroll wheels), and the observation by greentheonly that the heated steering wheel feature was ADDED to the code (it's not a leftover feature...

    Heated Steering Wheel? Indicated by Metallic Scroll Wheels?

    Still RUMINT quality, apparently. GreenTheOnly sees the software code that supports it in the 3, and there's an owner who says that a Tesla rep confirmed it but that's not an official corporate announcement. Sorry. Seems like good intel, but it's unconfirmed as of yet. Tesla Model 3 heated...

    Heated Steering Wheel? Indicated by Metallic Scroll Wheels?

    So although they announced it for the model 3, it's not enabled (or maybe not even produced) yet?

    Rumor: Heated Steering Wheel and Bioweapon Defense Mode Coming for 2021 Model

    I had this exact thought! Why would they modify the steering wheel twice in a short period of time. I posted this over in the Model 3 forum to see if they have any data points: Heated Steering Wheel? Indicated by Metallic Scroll Wheels?

    Heated Steering Wheel? Indicated by Metallic Scroll Wheels?

    Hello all, I thought I heard that the Model 3 was getting a heated steering wheel. Has this happened yet? Does anyone have one? I understand the scroll wheels on the steering wheel have changed from black rubber to silver metal. Does this correspond with the presence of a heated steering...

    Any proof of the new M3 headlamps delivered on the 2021 MY?

    He's probably referring to this post: from Bjorn. Who lives in Norway and therefore has European headlights, which aren't legal in North America yet. The fact that the car was built in Freemont CA doesn't mean it is designed for US regulations. They ship them overseas.

    Where do I go to get Daytime Running Lights back???

    RecklessFury is right: enabling range mode disables DRL in the X (but not in the S). Unclear why, those lights can't be a big drain on battery, and certainly reduce safety.

    Easy iTunes playlist syncing for Tesla USB flash drive

    btw, flash drives have some form of a FAT filesystem (specific version of FAT depends on the size of the memory), and FAT doesn't support hard links (or soft links either). You're forced to have separate copies of the file. Thanks for the utility! - - - Updated - - - Hello ra-san, I'm...

    EPA Rating for 60kWh: 200 miles range. Achievable?

    http://www.teslamotors.com/modelx shows that the base is a 2WD, and that the AWD is an option. EDIT--Oh, maybe you meant, if you buy the AWD, is it switchable to 2WD? I don't know about that, sorry.

    How do you get voice command to work?

    I used to use "drive to" all the time, until 4.5. Never got it to work again (~15 attempts). Now the conversation goes like this: I say, "drive to ...". it says "Unknown command". I say, "F#*!, Navigate to ...". It works. Sometimes I vary the curse word. :-)

    Model S Software/Firmware wishlist

    Exactly. I have multiple garage doors, so I reprogrammed one of the 3 from a location up the street. The menu drops down when I am further from my house, and only one button is shown Green (the other 2 are gray). All 3 function, however, and my garage approach is such that my openers can hear...

    USB Keyboard and Mouse

    I was also using a cheap USB (wired) keyboard for easy typing of navigation (addresses) and web browsing. My keyboard has no mouse/trackpad functionality. Now that I have 4.5, it no longer functions. :-(

    High Power Wall Charger - Tesla recommends temporarily cutting amps

    They have changed the HPWC once or twice. The rumor I heard was a UL listing issue related to semi-protected-from-the-climate installation locations (I'm thinking "carport"). The original picture of the HPWC on the website had a C-shaped hook attached to the lower portion of the HPWC, so the...
