    Possible wind noise around drivers side mirror Model X Raven

    I had a whistling sound coming from what appeared to be the front passenger side. I took it to the SC (for an unrelated issue), and asked them to look into it. They tried a few things, but it didn’t seem to help. Then, they told me they “lubricated the spoiler”. I have a 2017 100D with the fixed...

    Battery Degradation: Tale of Two Teslas

    Interesting post, thanks! I don’t normally use TeslaFi - I assume “the fleet” limited to 90D model X’s? These are known to have poor battery degradation, but if it’s an apples to apples comparison, then indeed it looks like your X has it worse than average. Curiously, I am in nearly the...

    FSD upgraded today - MCU1 is crawling on its knees

    One more data point - I recently upgraded my 2017 HW2 MUC1 100D to the HW3 computer (still HW2 cameras, of course). I did not notice a big difference in the performance of the MCU. It's slow - but this is usual behavior. I don't find it to be any slower than it was pre-HW3 FSD computer. I...

    Raven vs. non-raven: huge difference, or not?

    That's the plan ;-)

    new vs used: how to evaluate features and pricing

    Sounds like it! There are definitely some good deals to be had. You just have to wait for them until the price drops to a good enough level.

    new vs used: how to evaluate features and pricing

    The short answer is: the pricing doesn't make sense (yet). The main difference in this particular case is full-self drive, which your new price does not include. So that's an $8k difference. But no one in their right mind would think that's worth it, and would go for the new one every time...

    Raven vs. non-raven: huge difference, or not?

    I took my X in for service for a few items (shudder, HW3 upgrade, etc.), and asked the SC to look into the battery. I tried taking the battery to ~10%, then back up to 90% and left it there overnight a few times, but it didn't seem to improve the SoC estimates at all. Still stuck at 258-263...

    News for Model X owners with the dreaded shudder

    I recently purchased a 2017 100D with 80k miles (with warranty to 100k miles). It had the shudder problem on delivery. It was strongly present in the Standard suspension setting, and mildly present in Low. I took it in to the SC after purchasing to address this (and a few other issues). They...

    Nightmare buying experience with our first Tesla

    Sorry to hear about this awful experience. I believe this is mainly due to the centralized organization of Tesla. Unlike a dealership, where everything can go up to the manager, in Tesla there is very little accountability and poor communication between units. This can cause things like this to...

    Model 3 vs. Model X - 2 weeks in

    I forgot to mention this point. I have this same issue! Yes, the instrument panel navigation view is nice, but it's also decoupled from the main navigation screen which shows the upcoming turn/exit/etc. I find myself looking back and forth between the instrument panel and the main screen...

    Model 3 vs. Model X - 2 weeks in

    Regarding acceleration, I think the difference in feel may be due to the height of the vehicle (plus obviously the weight). I have a P3D and a 100D X, but I've also driven a P100D X with ludicrous. Based purely on feel, the P3D felt faster than the P100D X - it pushes you back in your seat more...

    Unusual battery numbers on an ‘18 X 100D

    The easiest way to check your current rated range is to open up your Tesla app on your phone, click the Charging button, and slide the slider all the way to the right, pretending to set the charge limit to 100%. It should indicate (on iOS anyways) what your range would be if it were charged to...

    Model X 22" Onyx Black Turbine wheels and tires [SoCal / San Diego]

    Just bought a CPO Model X that came with these. The wheels are like-new with no scratches or curb rash, and the tires are nearly brand new - only driven a few hundred miles. These are the upgraded 22in turbine onyx wheels with Pirelli Scorpion tires that Tesla sells for $6800. Includes TPMS, so...

    End of quarter discounts

    I asked this question specifically about buying a used Model X from Tesla. It is NOT possible to remove FSD from a used vehicle purchase. It IS possible to do this on a new inventory vehicle. It's too bad re: the used vehicles, because Tesla is pricing them essentially with the full value of...
