    Full Self Driving Hugs Center Line

    Just got my new S a week ago (was driving an X with AP1) and I must say that the S hugs the center lane and, overall, the driving experience is inferior to that of my X with AP1. Will/can this be corrected with a software update?

    Tesla 19" Slipstream Winter Tires?

    Why not a bigger Batt

    I think the correct question might be: "when will the battery technology and efficiency improve enough to approach 350-400 miles of range while keeping the same battery footprint?"

    Front License Plate Solution

    In California, it is mandatory to have a front license plate. Like most Tesla owners, I don’t want to drill into the front of the car. I Purchased “the law“ to install the front license plate without having to drill into my precious X. I found it a rinky-dink and overly complicated solution...

    Signing today...or so I thought.

    Wife and I headed down to Tesla in Rocklin for our 1PM signing and walk-through. On the way—about 10 minutes before 1–our Salesperson called us to tell us that during the final detailing of my wife’s Model 3, Tesla discovered a leak (or something) that allowed water to accumulate in the trunk...

    Keyfob functions

    For me, I can double click the top of the fob; it unlocks and opens the driver door.

    Keyfob functions

    As long as the driver door is ajar, double clicking on the top of the fob will always open the front passenger door. When my wife and I are out, I double-click to open mine, then double-click to open her door.
