    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    We need to move beyond yellow cards. Unlike our old friend Bruce, I can’t hand out red cards or threaten to kick folks out of the sandbox. That said, there’s tomfoolery afoot here. Rest assured, you don’t want to wake Bruce. You were warned.

    Wait, there’s a yoke? I’m out.

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    This “software hold” happened with the Ys last quarter and it was not fun. Tesla doesn’t hold cars for typical software updates - they can do OTA anytime. Last quarter with the Y it was for updates related to homologation (specifically the TV radar less cars). For us S folks, I hope they’re...

    Because cheap electric rates don’t correlate to tax credits and most folks aren’t buying $50,000+ cars which, in reality, is the cost of a new Tesla most of the time. Sucks but true.

    MD, sadly, is mainly a coal state, so it’s cheap, but really bad for the planet and I don’t have the luxury of paying for what I believe in or else I’d get solar. I do drive only EVs except for one - which I could replace if Tesla were willing to ever deliver my S! :)

    I don’t know where you all live, but in MD, the payback is more like 15+ years. My roof faces south - ideal. I’d put in a geothermal HVAC before I’d do solar in MD.

    I got the same thing, but you’d still net $5k if you dropped FSD. Personally, as someone who has FSD on my vision only Y, it’s pretty worthless with Tesla Vision unless/until they ever release the “city” version. Which I don’t see happening for a long time regardless of what Uncle Elon says...

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    I almost did a dumb thing and changed my order to remove FSD. Which would’ve likely delayed me past even September. Then I realized, I can wait until I get closer to delivery and cancel it. I have it on my Y at $10,000, with the subscription, and no way city FSD rolls out any time soon (ie my...

    Tesla.com - "Transitioning to Tesla Vision"

    As someone who bought FSD and ended up with no radar for $10,000, it does suck that I could’ve paid $199/month for a subscription when I need it. I believe it will be a long time before city FSD is out. Oh well, not the first time I’ve lost money by being an early adopter.

    Are we really going to have an argument about sensibility on a thread where people are spending $100,000+ on a car? Come on now. People like options. If you don’t want white seats, don’t buy them.

    What about my Semi reservation? When is that coming? I don’t have an EDD for that. I have to be able to tow my other Teslas in a covered trailer so they don’t get scratched or otherwise dinged while in motion.

    Ceramic coating is not flexible when dry, is it? The kind used on cars chips off. You may have better luck using a sofa protector like my grandmother used to have. Kind of like sitting on a ziploc bag, but gotta keep the seats clean for the next owner. :-) Seriously, the car is meant to be...

    Excellent question. Right when refresh was announced. So day after that. January 29, to be exact (I think). My X was ordered early January, but I won’t comment further on that for fear of taking this thread off topic!

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    Well, first I must point out your post is egregiously off topic as it’s about an existing Y and a potential X. Shame on you for clogging this otherwise pristine thread! Second, there’s no comparison between the X and Y anmore than the S and 3. Whether it’s storage, speed, actual SUV size and...

    Should I upgrade from my '21 Model X

    Only $5k more if you didn’t have a reservation before the increase. Just wanted to clarify that. I am upgrading from a 2016 AP 1.0 X. There’s a 0% chance I’d upgrade from an X with AP 3.0, regardless of year. Just not enough real features. It’s largely “just” a different interior.
