    Green New Deal

    If Solar is cheaper than coal, then leave the transition up to the market. The Green New Deal is net value destroyer that would more than double the federal budget and have to get the funds from printing money (which they admitted in the press release.) Stop assuming anything pro-Green is...

    BMW, Daimler Partner on $1B Program for All-Electric On-Demand Transportation

    Uh, was the news that Daimler is merging its apps with BMWs? I didn't see anything else. The data in the press release were about supposedly existing businesses, which to read the press release are doing amazing business. Has anyone else heard of or used "Chargenow"? In the US, I use...

    Mt. Kisco delivery for NH resident

    Nice write-up. I picked up my Model 3 at Mount Kisco in July, before the other lots were open. It was hectic even then. Question: why did you wait for the level-2 full charge? Superchargers would have been faster.

    Tesla Model 3 delivery is FUBAR

    Here's how my Model 3 delivery went: 1. Pick up will be in late May. 2. No. Delivery is delayed. 3. Pick up will be July 10. Because we live in Albany, the capital of New York State, the closest Tesla service center is 2 ish hours from our house (not really Tesla's fault: Tesla stores are...

    Outdoor NEMA 14-50 Enclosure

    Thanks. I didn't double check. I guess my electrician wired it wrong, then. I didn't double-check at the time.

    Tire Repair Kit

    I got a Slime brand pump and sealer from Amazon for less than 1/2 the cost of the Tesla pump. It seems to work well at (slowly) refilling low tires on my other cars. I haven't had to use it to fix a flat yet, thought.

    Outdoor NEMA 14-50 Enclosure

    I didn't know how the 14-50 plug on the UMC was oriented, and had my 14-50 receptacle installed like the Tesla 14-50 instruction diagram shows. In that configuration (that is, with the rounded plug receptacle down), the UMC needs to hang from a hook above the plug. If you want the UMC to hang...

    Outdoor NEMA 14-50 Enclosure

    I have a Model 3 and went with NEMA 14-50 and UMC for home charging. Unless you think you will need to charge your car with 200+ miles quickly, I don't think the extra wall connector charging speed is worth it. On our UMC with 32 Amps continuous charge, the Model charges on the order of 30 miles...

    Tesla Service Centers

    Thanks. That's what I thought the situation might be these days. Still, I occasionally read people raving about Ranger service. But I have the impression those are the exceptions.

    Model 3 reservation page screen shot

    Blue here, too. Sounds like it is standard. I like the blue, though.

    Tesla Service Centers

    What do people do for service if they live 100 more more miles from a service center? Does Tesla come out at pick the cars up, or doesn't one have to plan on day-long commitments to take the car in for service? And what about major repairs in that case? (I'm thinking practically about what...

    Space X - Hiring recommendation

    More power to him, but this is not a SpaceX hiring forum. This is a private site for Tesla fans and drivers.

    Tesla Could Be Poised For Big Win: FTC To Hear Pros & Cons Of Franchise Laws

    So sad. Norquist should defend economic freedom to contract, not oppose it.

    New York Times - Wroing again

    He probably confused the cost of autopilot as an option on a new car with the cost of downloading the update.

    Washington Post: Tesla Model S P90D: A normal person drives the ‘best car’ ever made

    I think by "normal," he means someone who isn't willing to re-think how to drive and fuel their car. They just want to get in and go. Using Superchargers instead of gas stations is about as much a change as they can stand. Now, those of on this message board like to re-think how to drive...
