    Polyurethane Suspension Bushings - Quest

    I have a 2013 P85 with 185k miles and it's had various repairs in the last year, but the biggest current issue it has is worn bushings in several places: - front arms - rear arms - read motor mounts Because the only real option right now is to buy the entire metal replacement assembly from...

    2020.12.10 USB for music now works

    Yes - the older Model S MCU works with USB again (updating from 10.x to 12.x) - one tip: - exFAT (for big 64GB//256GB+ drives) is one option for file system on the USB. - another alternative I've tested that works (seemingly faster) is EXT2 (Linux) - which can be done on a Windows PC with some...

    Rear trunk won't open

    This is currently happening in my car - getting the kids out was easy, just have them stand up, release the rear seat catch, then fold the 2nd row seat (or seats) forward. A bit harder if you're ADULT size ;-) lol

    East Coasters - road trippin'?

    Thanks for the tip! I'll actually be continuing down I-81 from Charlottesville (towards Nashville), so won't have that issue... but I can see the gap! Check this out too - I dunno where the data is coming from - but the ones with pre-opening status are interesting :-) supercharge.info

    East Coasters - road trippin'?

    Thanks for the offer! Won't be going quite that far South, but appreciate that other owners are so welcoming :-)

    East Coasters - road trippin'?

    I'm tentatively leaving Massachusetts (7/15) for a leisurely drive through some family/friends stops to be in Reno 7/27... Currently looking at stops in VA, then TN, and then no plans through NV. Anyone else going that way - or meet up along the way? :-)

    Any CT owners have a recommendation for a trailer hitch installer?

    I also did my own EcoHitch install - took me a couple days between sorting out all the tools/tweaking I needed to do... but it's always satisfying to do it yourself! And - I'll never argue AGAINST an opportunity to buy new tools ;-) haha

    TMC Connect - Content Sharing Archive

    I couldn't find a way to attach PPTX files to the board (here) - assuming that's a technical limitation - so I've instead started an external Archive: http://1drv.ms/1fHPGbR I put up my CANbus presentation - and for anyone else who wants to post their files, feel free to private-message me...

    CHAdeMO error tracking thread

    Follow-up : after running into a ChargePoint representative at an EV event, I got some more info on the units... Apparently the challenge ChargePoint has been having is that their bolt-on bit (for auth/billing) is just a pass-through, so when the charger unit generates an error like this, they...

    Excercising Massachusetts - Right to Repair

    The lawyer is for the ("proprietary") software bit - AFAIK, it's extremely hard to get diagnostic software from *ANY* manufacturer (having tried for BMW, Honda, and Subaru). And yes - I did see a few posts about getting in and browsing the material (July/2013) - so the (web site) error I'm...

    Excercising Massachusetts - Right to Repair

    Thanks for the replies - however: 1) Yes, I know about that site, and I actually posted the link right in my first entry! ;-) Problem is - if you try to sign up, it's broken, and I've tried unsuccessfully (for a couple weeks now) to get Tesla to fix it/respond for help (as their web site...

    Excercising Massachusetts - Right to Repair

    For anyone that hasn't heard of this, I believe we're the first state to pass something like this (back in 2012/2013): https://malegislature.gov/Laws/SessionLaws/Acts/2012/Chapter241 The basic premise is, ever since OBD and CANbus, auto manufacturers have kept many of the new electronics and...

    Any fast chargers from Concord NH to to Montreal?

    Very cool thanks! That ABB 50kW unit looks really nice - haven't seen that yet... and I see they put it into a highway "rest stop" (like some of the SuperChargers here in the U.S.) Will let you know if I'm in the neighborhood :-) And if you're ever down my way - I have 80A HPWC and 30A J1772...
