    Torque and Horsepower upgrade kits on M3P?

    Correct. There is a video by DragTimes, i believe, that mentions a 2.9 time.

    Solar panels and clay tile roofs

    . Sure. I used ProSolar. Their number is (888) 462-5005. They were great to work with and they really cared about their work.

    MyQ vs. Homelink garage door confusion

    Homelink will give your car the ability to talk with garage door/ gate openers like a fob. MyQ means your Liftmaster/Chamberlin opener is internet capable with either built-in hardware or add-on hardware. Newer models have wi-fi built-in, older models need to add hardware to connect to the...

    Any way to encourage powerwall firmware update?

    A while ago i had an issue where my gateway was out of sync (known bug) with my mobile app. I called Tesla Energy support and the agent pushed an updated firmware to my gateway to correct the issue.

    12 Volt Battery Tesla Owners Beware

    Here is my post from a week ago... I never got a warning... I went out to my car one morning and it was totally dead. I never got a warning on my screen mentioning a low battery condition. I figured I could hook up my portable battery jumper and drive to the service center for a replacement...

    12V Battery Failure Experience

    I went out to my car one morning and it was totally dead. I never got a warning on my screen mentioning a low battery condition. I figured I could hook up my portable battery jumper and drive to the service center for a replacement battery. I couldnt even get the tow hook cover off. It...

    Vendor DRIVE Electric for Tesla, an app for Samsung watches (Tizen)

    KlokkProjects, I wanted to say thank you for creating a TESLA app for the Gear S3 Tizen-based, watches. I purchased your app a few days ago and so far it seems to be working well on my Samsung Gear S3 Frontier model. The font size of your app is a bit small for my eyes, however the icons you...

    Solar panels and clay tile roofs

    I'm in Florida and I had 26 panels installed on my clay barrel roof tiles. Tesla themselves said they wouldnt do it but they referred me to a local installer that was Tesla certified. I had them installed as well as two PowerWall2 batteries installed

    Using a tire inflator with the cigarette adapter

    Keep in mind.... The power socket is suitable for accessories requiring up to 12A continuous draw (16A peak).

    Anyone get the new Tesla Gateway?

    My understanding is that the Gateway2 is not designed for the U.S. It is designed for 3-phase electric or 240v single phase which neither of these are standard U.S. homes. This is again only from what I have read. I do prefer the looks of the Gateway2.... I actually had been thinking of...

    Connection issues

    anytime my radio stations didn't want to load I would perform a soft reboot (holding down the two steering wheel buttons).

    Connection issues

    It's been a bit since I've had connecting issues (there was a time it was happening to lots of owners), but when the app won't connect I log out of the mobile app and log back in. Hopefully it works for you.

    Scheduled charging not working right after latest update

    I can confirm that this is happening. It started when the Scheduled Departure was introduced, however I am not using that feature either. I have a HPWC and I usually plug in when i got home but stop the charging. The car will stop from the app but it will start charging again 60 seconds...

    Drive In, Not back into SC

    The SuperChargers on the Florida Turnpike at the Fort Drum Service Plaza are head in parking due to them being installed on a one way street. Here is a picture showing some i found somewhere else, also on a one-way street.
