    Spotify connection issues on every drive

    Thanks @SilverSp33d3r for the tip. I have noticed that when I want to use Spotify on my PC that I have to manually switch the playback device from the Model 3 to the PC. It makes sense that the Tesla MCU would have a similar issue when going the other direction. It would be great if they...

    Spotify connection issues on every drive

    I have noticed this exact problem as well and have been using the same solution you described. It is very annoying. I also have a similar issue with the FM radio where it sometimes fails to switch to the selected station. Sometimes it will switch to the station, but not to the HD2 channel. I...

    Tesla Service Paint Repair/Repaint Experiences...Please Share

    Which shop was good and which to avoid? I am in Plano and need to get my Midnight Blue model S repaired from a hail storm. I don't think it needs to be painted, but the hood has several that look like they will be difficult to fix.

    ESA - now eligible even with dealer in chain of ownership?

    I bought my 2013 Model S from a dealer in 2014 and successfully purchased the ESA last year. It was not a slam dunk and I had to point out to them that there was no CPO program at the time and that there were also essentially no private sales taking place at that time. They agreed with me and...

    Would you rather...2017 Inventory MS 75D or Used Panamera 4S

    If you were contemplating the as-yet-unreleased but stunning Porsche Mission-e, I would say go for it! I can't really say that about a used Panamera though. The Panamera seems like it is on the cusp of being obsolete due to its complex hybrid gas/electric power train. I really like the...

    Need help deciding, CPO P85 with no tech package

    I agree - hold out for one with the tech package, even if you have to pass on a P.

    How much more would you pay for a driver instrument cluster?

    I agree with the OP that Elon is likely to be surprised at how important an instrument cluster is to a lot of people. A car without a dedicated instrument cluster feels like a cheap cost-cutting measure to me. Tesla is an aspirational brand and should not be taking a risk like this that will...

    Opinions on options, toys, bells & whistles – and how it affects your decision on battery capacity.

    I agree with you in principle on maximizing range, but if I were to replace my 85, I would have a hard time justifying the extra cost of a 90D over a 75D, but for road trips, the 90D would be the better choice. The only suggestion I would make is that you may reconsider leather seats. When it...

    Screen hardware specs - do newer models have better graphics hardware?

    I think newer Model S and probably Model x have higher res instrument screens. I don't know if the CPU's/GPU's are any faster, though. the old screens were approx 1280x400 and the new ones are approx 1920x600. This started around VIN 44xxx in 2014.
