    Aerodynamic efficiency and range: the effect of mounting a receiver hitch on a model 3?

    I can picture a pointy cover for the receiver that locks into the hitch the way the trailer does, but points forward with a bike rack type of lock. We could probably scale the manufacturing and get the break even down to about 87 years.

    Rear trunk won't open

    I had the same thing. Ranger could not get it open to fix it. I drove it to the Santa Barbara service center, about 80 miles. They fixed it in about 3 to 4 hours. There was a part replaced. Santa Barbara Tesla has always been a well run operation.

    Supercharger - San Luis Obispo, CA - Higuera St. (LIVE 19 Nov 2021, 20 V3 stalls)

    The pin for the first San Luis Supercharger was also downtown. When they pull the permit, the location will be correct.

    Blog See New Photos of Model X Plaid Interior

    I have not seen anything in writing that indicates the LR version has a different interior other than the software displays to make plaid selections.

    What are the must haves for a brand new Tesla

    I don't regret Ceramic Pro or adding the Tesla Extended Warranty. I'm will not be buying FSD on my new X on order. Autopilot is just fine for trips and divided highways. I'll drive my own neighborhood myself, but I have it on the current MS and am looking forward to it rolling out.

    I don't know why they are forcing people to pay for a rear screen that they don't want and may never use. It should be an option.

    Supercharger - Arroyo Grande, CA - W Branch Rd. (LIVE 23 Jun 2021, 8 V3 stalls)

    Note that there appears to be SC parking on both sides of the chargers. I have not seen that before.

    Supercharger - Arroyo Grande, CA - W Branch Rd. (LIVE 23 Jun 2021, 8 V3 stalls)

    All of the equipment seems to be there. Just need to wire it up. The movie theaters, now closed, are in the background. The chargers are between the theaters and the previous Starbucks location. It's too far to walk to the new Starbucks, but there is an In-N-Out, Blaze Pizza, Palo Mesa...

    Supercharger - San Luis Obispo, CA - Los Osos Valley Rd (LIVE 15 May 2021, 16 V3 stalls)

    These chargers are behind Dick's Sporting Goods. El Pollo Loco is a short walk, with Olive Garden just a little longer. If you want to cross the highway, the Whole Foods makes good sandwiches, and, of course, you can get an all-beef hot dog and a large soda for $1.50. This is a pretty good...

    FSD price for EAP owners lowered by $1000

    I bought Advanced Autopilot with the car and added FSD for $2K when it went on sale for about 3 weeks in 2019. I use the AAP on freeways but have heard about too many scratches, etc. using Summon and parking. No way FSD is worth $9K or $10K just to steer around the neighborhood or get off of...

    Funny story for ya'll....

    If they don't know how to drive it, I would not have them work on it.

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    Took mine in for MCU2 yesterday and picking it up tomorrow. They did HW3 a few weeks ago, but the MCU2 parts got hard to get. Appreciate the tips when picking up the car.
