    Guy wires generator to charge while driving.

    I can't imagine this is fake. This guy has built up a reputation as a very innovative, creative and skilled engineer. One of his previous projects was to add jet engines to his Tesla. Check out his Youtube channel. I think he, too, was disappointed with how little electrical power the engine...

    Mileage on MSLR

    The lifetime (~6 months, ~6000 miles) average consumption on my 2022 MSLR is 299 Wh/mile. Assuming a 96 kWh battery, this means I get 321 miles of range with a full battery. My commute is about 20 miles each way, mostly highway, but often in traffic.

    Performance of Refreshed MSLR vs. others

    Regarding range numbers: I don't feel misled by Tesla. I don't see why their EPA numbers aren't accurate. It's just that the EPA test itself doesn't translate to real world driving as most people do it nowadays. At freeway speeds of 65-70mph I get fairly close to the EPA numbers. I'm sure that...

    Performance of Refreshed MSLR vs. others

    Tesla quotes 3.1 seconds 0-60 with rollout for the M3P, but without rollout for the MSLR. This roughly translates to 2.9 seconds 0-60 with rollout for the MSLR.

    Performance of Refreshed MSLR vs. others

    I agree with @cmarshack. I also own a Palladium Long Range, and when I bought it I was between it and the Model 3 Performance (I owned a Model 3 Long Range with the acceleration boost before). I wanted the Tesla that is quickest off the line and that I can afford, because it is so much fun. I...

    Performance of Refreshed MSLR vs. others

    It's been the same with the Model 3 Long Range vs. Peformance. See here and click "Learn more about range and performance" on the right.

    Model S 2022 - charging door does not open if pressed - normal?

    After several weeks at the service center (mostly because they were waiting for parts) they eventually fixed the problem. Almost. The charge port door now opens with the charger handle every time, regardless of the car's sleep status. But it still won't open when you press on the charge port...

    2022 model s matrix headlight patter

    I have the same uneven light pattern on my Long Range from March '22. SC told me there will be a software update at some point, but no ETA. Besides the vertical dark spot, the horizontal dark stripe that's visible in your picture just at the bottom end of the vertical dark spot annoys me quite a...

    Anyone install the Hansshow yoke wheel in a new Model S?

    Great! That's exactly the configuration I am looking at. I've been hoping Tesla would offer a wheel alternative once they start shipping in Europe, but there haven't even been rumors about it.

    Anyone install the Hansshow yoke wheel in a new Model S?

    Did you get normal or Nappa leather?

    Is There A Traditional Owner's Manual For The Model S?

    Dragy times for Plaid and LR

    I have a MS LR as well, mine's from 3/22 with the stock 21" wheels and Michelin PS4 tires. I can't imagine I'm having traction problems given that the same wheels and tires do 2.2 seconds to 60 on a Plaid, and I've never heard the tires chirping (as opposed to the BMW i4-M50). I've never gotten...

    M3P VS BMW I4 M50

    Just a small detail: I'm from Stuttgart and can tell you that while Porsche and Mercedes are headquartered in Stuttgart, BMWs are from Munich.

    Model S 2022 - charging door does not open if pressed - normal?

    The service center thinks that replacing the charge port ECU will fix it. I have an appointment in two weeks and hope that this will get resolved then.

    Model S 2022 - charging door does not open if pressed - normal?

    It never worked by pushing on it or with the charger handle. I've been opening it with the key fob. It also works from the screen in the car as well as the app.
