    Autopilot blinded, disengaged by sun on interstate

    I expected something similar where I was driving east with bright sunlight hitting the passenger door. The notification said something to the effect of cleaning the right pillar door camera to enable autopilot. I checked after I arrived, and nothing was impeding the camera; it had to the sun.

    32% drop in range (winter in MN)

    I learned from this experience that all 5 tires dropped by 5 lbs overnight when our weather dropped by 40 °. The combination of heating, tire pressure, and heavy wet snow definitely dropped the range. After a month of driving, I'm starting to get a feel for the car, and a killer app would be...

    Raven (non Performance) real world range?

    For me it's been a week today, my range is roughly about 10-15 miles below the EPA estimate depending on driving habits. Below are some of the metrics from the Tesla Stats App. I did figure out that my driving efficiency went up 101% last night because I was really good for once. :)

    Maiden Voyage on a Brand New Model X

    Thanks - I would echo keeping it polite; the service text messages that come through feels cold (aka a machine-generated) as it comes across but there is a human behind the message who is likely overwhelmed with service requests. I'm speculating is they deal with a lot of folks that don't...

    Maiden Voyage on a Brand New Model X

    The delivery was 1 pm the afternoon on Friday (9/25). Delivery went smoothly, and the X had a whopping total of 10 miles on the odometer.

    [False alarm due to CA->US currency exchange] Price Increase as of 9/21

    I saw the same thing it shows Km/h and miles what was on my browser before I refreshed. I'm not using a vpn and can replicate on two different machines with Chrome and Safari. Hoping the new Km range is the updated mile range.
