    What happened to the T?

    I like the new feature that the icons for SCs also show the number of available stations.

    What happened to the T?

    Got an update and the T at the top of the screen disappeared. Where is it? You use this icon to access release notes, version info etc.

    Portable Air Compressor

    I use the $30 Slime compressor to top off both my S and 3. Seems to do the job and I keep it in the S for trips.

    Where to get power liftgate installed in SF Bay Area?

    Larry Lee has a link on the Hanshow website and installs lift gates for both S and 3. I had him do the frunk/trunk on my Model S and my wife's Model 3 recently. He does a good job and can do both the frunk and trunk or just the trunk and they work seamlessly with the app and the car's touch...

    New Model S - pre delivery checkup

    You only need a 240v receptacle and then you can use the mobile charger that comes with the car. IF you think you may ever get a second EV then be sure to provide enough power for both cars otherwise you may have to have the electrician come twice. Which is what happened to me.

    Do I need a 50amp outlet? SR+

    Certainly the lower amp circuit is adequate for overnight charging. IF you are paying for an electrician to install a circuit you may want to put in a 100A circuit if you think you might want a second EV. I installed a 50A 14-50 receptacle and then another Tesla showed up in the garage and I had...

    Michelin vs. Goodyear, what to get?

    I put Bridgestone Turanza Quiettracks on my 2016 S for a quieter ride. Costco sells them.

    Full Self Driving: To Get It or Not to Get It?

    I too had a decision to make in 2016 whether to get FSD and longer range when I bought my S. Every time I drive my S I regret the decision I made NOT getting long range and NOT getting FSD. Currently I am stuck with HW 2.0 and will not be getting many of the newer software upgrades. If I had...

    My S hugs the inside of the curves.

    How’s the Y

    I own a 2016 S, my wife a 2018 Model 3. A friend wanted to go car shopping so I took him to our local showroom/SC for a new car test drive. They gave us a performance Model Y with only 11 miles on the odometer and it had not even been driven enough for the car to calibrate the cameras and...

    Listing your car for sale

    I listed my 2013 on Craigslist. Also sold my daughter's I3 on Craigslist. If you do sell this way make sure you accept only cash and do the money transfer and paperwork in a bank lobby as they can run the money through a machine to count it and check for counterfeits.

    Backup camera shows black screen

    My wife's 2018 M3's backup camera frequently shows nothing but a blank black screen when she backs out of the garage. This happens only in the garage and only intermittently. Anyone experience this issue?

    Listing your car for sale

    I sold my 2013 on Craigslist. A young man bought it for his father.
