    An unforeseen Model S risk

    You forgot the huge spare wheel that takes up most of the rear hatch. We are thankful for the frunk when we go on long trip in our MS.

    This will not end well for BMW

    Don't assume that MY will be planted like your MX. I love the way the MX drives, it would be my favorite Tesla if it did not have the idiotic doors and front windshield. In fact, when I was buying my MS, the MX was exactly the same price and would have been a MUCH better fit for my family. But...

    MCU1 upgrade - Radio and XM

    May I suggest an audiobook? Just kidding :-)

    Suspension question for folks who’ve had German cars

    Model S is WAY more stable at speed. Way better (less nervous) steering, too. Still nowhere near as good as my M-Sport BMW 550i. But the Model 3 I test drove was not my cup of tea at all.

    Wow, we need to find another way to heat EVs

    Not the base model.

    Wow, we need to find another way to heat EVs

    You think this is bad, try driving a base Nissan Leaf in the winter. 30-40 mile range at moderate speeds on the highway, about 50 miles on suburban roads (50 mph) with the heat on. The range indicator is the biggest issue because it is way too optimistic. You fall below 50% battery and the range...

    AP 1 what am I missing

    I would not worry about the new AP features or the entertainment fluff but the new Raven suspension is absolutely a monumental upgrade. It is truly world class.

    Is MCU 2 the most important feature when shopping for a used Tesla?

    The most important is AP. AP1 is vastly better than no AP. MCU version makes no difference to me at all.

    Supercharger - King of Prussia, PA

    Completely agree with what you posted. We need many more superchargers around Philly and in other areas like Wellsboro. For that drive from Doylestown to Lancaster I have found that Rt202/Rt 30 is only a few minutes slower than taking the turnpike but it really conserves your battery because...

    Not having regen after the last software update sucks

    Same everything as OP. Except I just tried to pay more attention to regen while driving and I think it IS a little weaker than before. It is hard to tell.

    Not having regen after the last software update sucks

    I have not noticed any difference. Same behavior as always.

    M3 due to arrive today, 580-mile trip tomorrow: Am I crazy?

    I would recommend checking that you can supercharge before going.

    Opinions of the 75D

    236 miles seems to be 100% on my 2017 S75D with 80k miles.

    What to do?!?!? 2013 Model S 60 Battery fail

    It sucks but that $11k quote seems very low for a 60 kWh battery. I would go with that repair. Maybe try to get part of it covered by some sort of goodwill gesture... It could have been a lot worse: Is It Global? Nissan Charges €30,000 For LEAF Battery Pack In Portugal
