    Coolest Features of the Model Y - Thoughts

    It will be summer soon and my favorite feature might become yours, too: climare keep (similar to dog mode, I guess). Particularly on hot aummer days, being comfortable either leaving my AC on while I run inside for groceries or a quick bite or turning it on five or ten minutes before I get in...

    Cybertruck Redesign?

    Barron's picked up the story today, including the part about it not being due out for a few years. The also quoted an analyst whi they said fiest tank TSLA and claimed that millennials use the term "nothingburger," so maybe we shouldn't pay too much attention to Barron's.

    What should be 80% SOC is only 68%

    I was told by tesla to run it down (past 10%), then back up (past 90%). I took it down to roughly 2% (about 5 miles remaining) and up to 100%. Since then, my reported range has been what I'd expect using similar calculations to yours. Sometimes off by a couple of miles, but nothing drastic...

    Does tinting the roof reduce the heat?

    I Tinted all windows in the car with 3M Crystalline, including the large rear window. But I did not tint the roof because the shop owner told me that it wouldn't help. Well, I can feel a noticeable difference between the roof and the tinted portion of the rear window -- the part that comes up...

    same motor LR vs SR

    I imagine that the performance model might include a large, rear induction motor. I have nothing to base this on, it's just a guess. But if you want to do Ludicrous mode, it seems like a higher power option might be the way to go, even if they even it out with a permanent magnet in front. IDK...

    Poll: Model 3 Phone Key Failure Rate

    I have a Galaxy S7 (android 7.0.0), and a couple of days ago, I turned on "Maximum Performance Mode." It increases the screen resolution and brightens the screen by up to 10%, as well as turning off the processor throttling, but I think it also keeps the Bluetooth Low Energy beacon (which, I...

    New HOV Stickers

    Has anyone had this done for the in Southern California? It seems simple enough, but also seems like something that I wouldn't want to mess up...

    Poll: Model 3 Phone Key Failure Rate

    For what it's worth, we have two Model 3s. She has an iPhone 7 (iOS 11.3) and I have a Galaxy S7 (Android 7.0), and I estimate that my phone key works about 65% of the time, while she has virtually no issues with using the phone as the key. Meanwhile, inside the car, I have had virtually no...

    Chill mode!

    Or "So much traffic I can't enjoy the car so I might as well extend the range of my battery" mode.

    3/22/2018 New M3 Invites

    Man, those first 23 months were a piece of cake. This last month has me scratching the walls!

    Under-appreciated aspect of Tesla vs other cars

    But what about things that weren't promised (or even considered) but were just good ideas? Creep is a great example of that. The early 2012/2013 Models didn't have it, but it was requested by customers and now it's on all of their post-roadster cars. Valet Mode is another great example...

    Buying reservation on Ebay, anybody has done that?

    Hit me up if you don't find what you're looking for.

    Will Tesla let me do this?

    Just so I'm clear on what you're saying. You put down the 1000.00 reservation on 2/19 or you configured and paid the other 2500.00 on 2/19? because if that's the latter is the case, I'm pretty certain that you won't be able to switch it at this point, as it has probably already been built. I...

    How long is the wait from Order to delivery?

    Just to be absolutely clear, you ordered and then three days later, you had your car? I'm in southern California too, but I haven't heard of anyone getting their cars in less than a week after placing their order. They must've had your exact configuration already on a truck when you ordered, lol.

    How long is the wait from Order to delivery?

    DId he even get his vin number yet? 7 weeks seems a bit long. I've been hearing that CA wait times have been like 2-5 weeks for delivery, and just wanted a larger sample size. I would call Tesla and ask about it. That's good to know! Mine is Deep Blue Metallic with Aero Wheels like your...
