    Paint job. Saw this “beauty” on a trip today

    That HAS to be a Walmart in the background. Right???:rolleyes:

    2017 100D battery question.

    That range is an estimate. It can be off by quite a bit unless you have 'recalibrated' by running the battery fairly low (say around 10%), then charge it all the way back to 100%. So your plan to know the battery degradation is missing one step: doing a fairly deep discharge before charging it...

    Is A/C motor really this loud?!

    Well - EVs are really quiet except for the tire noise and fan noise. My fan is louder than most everything else (since there is no rumbling engine to drown everything else out), no worries for me, but then again I am not usually outside my car while I'm driving it. ;) You weren't perchance a...

    Model X no heat

    My X has done that multiple times - heat just quits working. A reboot by holding down the two steering wheel buttons has always brought it back to life.

    extended warranty

    I purchased the Model X extended warranty in late December (a little over a month ago). They were great about NOT requiring me to go into the service center (which is 300 miles away). I called the service center to get the email for my service center ([email protected]), sent...

    Optimizing battery for supercharging?

    Uhh, I'm lost. Why would you NOT want the system to prepare your batteries for supercharging??? Tesla's engineers go to all the trouble to create the software to optimize your battery charging and then you want to defeat it? What am I missing here? If I just want more (or maximum) range...

    Model X vs. Audi e-tron

    Well I suppose you can find people that are adamant they still like their rotary dial telephones, steam engines, fax machines, and love the smell of napalm (or gasoline) in the morning... We have lots of mountain roads here in rural Oregon. The regenerative braking is one of the very best...

    Front License Plate for Model Y

    I installed a 'no-hole' plate on mine. While talking to the Tesla technician he mentioned that any plate that blocks grill airflow will reduce your range - and offered to install the factory plate holder in place of the no-hole plate holder. He explained that your Tesla tries to cool the...

    safe to supercharging majority of time?

    I had the same question when I bought my X in 2018. After a bit of googling, I ran across an excellent research paper out of Europe that had followed hundreds of Teslas in various charging scenarios - and their conclusion was there was zero correlation between the frequency of supercharging and...

    I want to sue Tesla..

    Wow, really??? Is this how you approach the service center? You must be a joy to work with. From your postings, looks like you may have owned your MX maybe a couple months. My service center (and now my mobile tech) have bent over backwards to help solve any problems I've had with my MX. As...

    Model Y versus Ford Mustang Mach-E

    Every time I read one of these posts that says another manufacturer is creating a great electric car, I shake my head. Assuming you actually plan on driving your car, the supercharger network is what makes my Tesla actually usable. Level 2 AC charging is ridiculously slow - totally impractical...

    2020.16.2.1 Auto Wipers working, finally!

    I absolutely loathed the auto-wipers for the last two years. In each new version update someone would say they were finally fixed. And I would turn them on only to find they were still garbage. Drove me bonkers that Tesla would not install a $3 part on their cars to get good auto-wipers due to...

    Anyone with FSD try the new software update 2020.12.6

    Works pretty good but I have not yet trained myself how to smoothly deal with the green lights. I've been using the pedal to get it to go through greens, will try the stalk next. The 0 MPH over the posted speed is ridiculous and HAS to go - or else will be too many road rage stories against...

    Red light on charge port after extended plug in session

    I had poor wiring on a plug at one of my houses. Previous owner had pulled aluminum wire for the 14-50. I had to replace it with copper to get good connections. Until then, it would intermittently get upset and turn red. This could definitely be an indicator you are having problems with your...

    USB stick cannot be found after 2020.12.5 update

    I had the Tesla mobile technician here upgrading my X to HW3 a few weeks ago and he mentioned that my USB stick was reporting errors (he could see from his plugged-in laptop diagnostics). I've already had two other USB drives die: my understanding is that they will all eventually die because...
