    Supercharger vacancies in v4 Tesla app (moved, not removed)

    I didn't, and good point. I was used to the Tesla app and kept searching it while driving. Next time, I'll pull over and spend time researching.

    Supercharger vacancies in v4 Tesla app (moved, not removed)

    I found the destination charger list a valuable resource while traveling. Yesterday I encountered a detour that put me in a critical low power situation. I scrambled to try and find a backup location with no success. Rolled to my destination on 'fumes'.

    Premium connectivity

    You should be able to connect through wifi from your home/garage.

    Safety Score - Probably Will Fail!

    Set my spacing distance to 3, speed @73MPH and drove 45 miles I-95 SoFla this morning and scored 100. Boring but good score so maybe I'll get what I paid for 3+years ago.

    500 mile road trip

    In answer to the initial question, I always use the delay timer to reach 100% within an hour of my start of a long trip. That extra boost adds a few more miles ands hence options for the start. After that, I follow the superchargers and schedules on the screen.

    Any News When Prepaid FSD Will Come to MS?

    It is now three years since I prepaid for FSD and no news yet. I see where subscription is coming to M3 and nice upgrades to autopilot for M3, but nothing for us?

    Any updates on FSD beta?

    There has been a lot of press of the release of FSD for M3, and the monthly subscription. Is there any positive news for those of us who prepaid for FSD at the time of purchase (2018) and are patiently waiting for years?

    Is anyone impressed with the overly-hyped "holiday update"?

    I just want to add my dissatisfaction to the font size change to the long list. I hope Tesla will move faster with a fix with greater numbers of complaints. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

    Can I Add the Hepa Filter Myself?

    Any ideas where the large Bio filter element can be purchased? I've been searching the web with no luck, and getting an answer from Tesla takes days. Thanks!

    Can I Add the Hepa Filter Myself?

    Thanks for the information. It seems a no brainer while the care is apart.

    Can I Add the Hepa Filter Myself?

    Sadly my MS is in the shop for a minor fender bender repair. I visited the shop today and was asked if either I or Tesla had removed a filter element from a large rectangular frame that is located under the frunk liner. I think it is for the Hepa filter? If I buy the element and have them...

    License Plate Holder Removal

    Once the screws were removed, I dripped alcohol to soften the adhesive. It was a very slow process but a steady pull, heat, and solvent did the trick. Good Luck!

    Fender Bender Repair in South Florida

    Thanks. Doing research now, but hoping for some first hand experience.

    Fender Bender Repair in South Florida

    Sadly, I've got some bumper/fender damage to my Pride and Joy. There are a few Tesla certified shops in the area, but my insurance company is encouraging Collison Care Express-McNab in Broward. Has anyone had personal repair experience with them? I would be grateful for any feedback of your...

    PPF proper installation question - not wrapped around edges is normal?

    I've got the pre-cut and you cannot see the difference from a couple of feet away. You have to run a finger to find the edge at arm length distance. On close examination you can see it. As I drive all highway, I'd rather save the money and get it redone after five years as road debris...
