    "Any color so long as it's stainless"

    I LOVE that image. It looks like a GLOSSY black rather than the matte black I've seen. The matte black looks dull and dirty. But glossy, piano black is great.

    Will Tesla ever do LIDAR?

    You think the issue with "firetrucks" is because it can't see the firetruck and LIDAR will help? If so, you are lost.

    Where is the 12v battery?

    My recollection is that it is not centered. It's in front of the driver.

    Windshield Replacement

    Can't help you regarding the Blackview. But I had a chip in my windshield that I ignored. It then cracked across the whole window. My insurer recommended Safelite, but I wanted to have Tesla do it. My insurer contacted Safelite anyway and Safelite emailed me. Their email advised that, once the...

    Phone wont unlock car often

    You connection to the phone is bluetooth. Phones, and perhaps the iPhone in particular, has a limited number of devices it can have a good connection too. These problems are common for folks with lots of tracker tiles, which take up all of the bluetooth ports. Turn off your tracker app except...

    Mid range sandbagged?

    Probably. Eventually. In the meanwhile, why not assume that the "official range" can be reached with dedicated effort -- like the rest of the cars -- but that 220 with aggressive driving is more likely most of the time.

    EAP issue with On-Ramps

    Really smart folks are in charge of this stuff. My guess is the answer is states have to get in line and comply with road painting conventions soon enough.

    Unfortunately, I can confirm.

    Advice for leaving car in airport car park

    It's hard to advise without knowing more. First, charge your car to the % you think you will leave it at (apparently 50%) and see how much power it loses overnight. Multiply that by 14, and you have an idea what you'll have upon return. Will that get you to a charger? Does the airport have a...

    How is the line formed at full superchargers?

    A fantastic idea that still has not come into being.....

    Towing Without a Hitch: How To?

    Consider "Roadie," an App that lets you find drivers -- and you can specify that you want a tow for a few hundred yards -- who will come move what you want moved. You largely set your price and, if someone wants to help you out, they offer to do the job. It's Uber for things. And it works well.

    FSD vs. EAP

    Nothing yet.

    New X with loud fan noise from frunk area

    My car has been very loud while charging many times. Almost always at a Supercharger. Occasionally at home. I was told "normal." I would like to have stood there with them hearing the same thing, but that never happened.

    Just dropped off my month-old 100D for a surprisingly open-ended service appointment

    Don't put too much emphasis on the open-ended appointment. It's like when I'm looking for my fob or my wallet. Who knows how long it will take to find it? But I have confidence that they will find it.
