    can autopark park just as good as my wife or better for model x?

    Reports from YouTubers are that the vision based Autopark is much better than before, but it is still slow, does not always handle tight spaces and can be tricky to engage sometimes although it can now handle spaces without cars on either side.

    Wall Connector for M3 RWD and MYLR

    For your use case, 1 HPWC should be fine. Even if your wife has a very heavy usage, you have time to charge on the work from home days. Try it and if you find it is not working or your usage changes, you can always install a second charger. Discuss the option of expansion with your electrician...

    Car for 21 year old??

    Given the uncertainty of his charging situation, I would avoid an EV. Both my kids started out with Priuses and found them practical, dependable and affordable. My daughter switched to a Rogue and then switched back to Prius. My son traded his second Prius for a used Telsa. He has no home...

    Kicked out of the FSD Beta! (Long Post)

    Here is hoping the key part is "Feature will be restored with an upcoming software release". What FSD Beta version do you have? Sounds like 10.6 is starting to roll out, so maybe you will not be suspended very long.

    Am I crazy

    We did a 7500 mile road trip in our MS last July at it was great. We took our two dogs (lab mixes) and added a kitten we found on day 1 at a late night charging stop in PA. The car was great. We found the car usually had more range than we did and as for charging stops the car was ready to go...

    Can I park the wipers in up position?

    Pre-heating the car will de-freeze the windshield wipers, even under 10 inches of snow. While CT is not as harsh as OH, I have not had any issue using pre-heat to un-freeze wipers. Usually it also melts the hard scrabble on the windshield under the snow and most of the snow can be removed by...
