    Navigation keeps directly me the SC we just passed!

    I ran into this for the first time during my Thanksgiving trip from the Bay Area to L.A. The other trip I made before did not have this issue, so not sure if something changed in the incremental updates. I also had it telling me to make a "0 minute" stop at a Supercharger both coming and...

    The latest drive unit explanation

    I've been through at least 4 drive units, and the current one is exhibiting the same grinding/whining/milling noise the prior 4 did. I appreciate the fact that Tesla has replaced each one with no cost to me except for time. I've been told that it appears to be a bearing design issue, whatever...

    Firmware 6.1 - For Classic Model S

    Finally got the update last night and installed it this morning. Crazy how the parking assist lines work without the sensors. And not sure I like the new right click wheel behavior. Going to be interesting to see how the other features play out, especially the trip prediction as I plan to...

    Model S Executive Rear Seats With Arm Rest

    Sorry if this is a little off topic, but based on the picture does this mean there is going to be a rear armrest/cupholder accessory coming for existing owners? It would be nice to have the ability to seat 5 when needed, but have the nice 4 seat setup with the armrest/cupholder.

    San Juan Capistrano SC: Tesla Drivers Must Get Their Charge

    That is awesome. Love how Model S owners will not be stopped from charging! Agree that it totally sucks that the usage of those spots was not taken into account when they scheduled the tree trimming.

    Possible to go from Gilroy, CA to Tejon, CA in one charge?

    MITE46, I was able to do the opposite direction (Tejon to Gilroy) once. This was before they installed all the Superchargers close to the Harris Ranch restaurant, and had only the one at the Shell station. There was one car charging and two more waiting, so I decided to try out a method...

    Owning a Model S as a Renter

    I have had my Model S P85 since Dec. 2012, and I have lived in an apartment complex with the same lack of charging in that time. My commute is 55 miles roundtrip, and I have access to ChargePoint L2 chargers at work. So the bulk of my charging during the work week happens there, and on most...

    Supercharger - Truckee, CA - Donner Pass Rd. (LIVE Aug 2014, 11 V2 stalls)

    I just received an e-mail from Tesla saying the Truckee supercharger is open. This weekend is probably going to be insane!

    Official word from Tesla (GeorgeB) on the vanity mirror light and rear reading lights

    Bump. Since the panoramic roof sunshades have finally arrived, I was wondering if anyone has heard anything about the visors being replaced with ones that have real lighted vanity mirrors. It just seems like for a car at this price and it has been in production for awhile now, this should have...

    Drop-In Center Console now in the Tesla Model S online store

    KRB/Dukecat - Wow, that was quick. Would either of you be so kind to share photos of the center console once it is installed please? Thanks in advance! I am hoping the carbon fiber version isn't too far behind.

    Drop-In Center Console now in the Tesla Model S online store

    Bump. Just curious like Silenus136 if anyone has heard any updates on this. We're almost thru July and it has been awful quiet from Tesla about the update's arrival ETA.

    Premium Console Waiting List

    Any updates on this? We're almost through June, and haven't heard a peep.

    San Juan Capistrano to Tejon Ranch in an 85

    I've driven from the Peninsula down to Dana Point and back five times now with my last/first charge at Tejon Ranch, and never had a problem making it even driving in a very spirited manner <ahem>. Closest call I had was I had about 40 miles of range left, but never felt like I had to manage my...

    Carbon Fiber Trim - How are people liking that?

    I have been very happy with it too, and still looks great a year and a half later.

    Grill Below Arm Rest

    Does anyone know if there are plans to retrofit the aspirator for cars built before the change?
