    The satellite view hasn't been updated since the construction, but the charger is on the east side of the parking lot, clearly visible from the street.

    Supercharger - Malta, NY

    Stopped in on my way north from Albany yesterday around 9am, the area was coned off from the front but not if you drive around the back of the building. Plugged in and charged at 90 kw (cold battery).

    Service scheduled before warranty expired, still covered after 50,000 miles?

    I have a few items that have been defective with my car for a few months now, I scheduled mobile service (I live 4 hours away from the nearest US service location) back in spring, but due to a mistake on Tesla's end they never came and I'm still waiting on them to come out. I finally got an...

    CT Steering Wheel Replacement

    I probably won't buy a Cybertruck if it comes with a yoke and there's no first or third party replacement options for a normal steering wheel. I'd give it a week or two but if I still hate it, out it goes. The difference between yoke steering in a plane or Formula 1 vs a street car is that...

    Bed Cap That Increases Range?

    It seems like for a standard pickup truck shape 10-25% improvements in mileage are possible with an aerodynamic bed cap. https://ecomodder.com/blog/aerocaps-for-pick-up-trucks/ I'd assume that the sloped back of the Cybertruck is already an advantage over the standard shape, so aim on the low...

    Bed Cap That Increases Range?

    With electric trucks improving aerodynamics doesn't just mean lower running costs, but longer range, which can be significantly more valuable. Because of this I'm surprised I haven't seen any concepts for Cyrbertruck bed caps that would improve aerodynamics and add range in the process. If you...

    WTB 2008 - 2012 Tesla Roadster

    Looking to by an original Tesla Roadster. High mileage is fine, this is a car I intend to drive so I'm not looking for a pristine low mile museum piece. I prefer the looks of the later cars, but there's not many of these and even fewer for sale, I'd be happy to have a change to buy any of them.

    Which front facing camera is the dash cam?

    We know there's three front facing cameras:wide, medium, and narrow lens. Do we know with any certainty which of these captures the camera footage we've all seen? I'm guessing we're getting the medium lens as Tesla refers to it as the main front camera, but has anyone captured footage from the...

    Diminished Value in NY

    I got the quote, $7,100 and change from the Tesla approved body shop. The quote isn't super easy to decipher, but I believe the damage ended up being minor enough that they're going to repair the existing quarter panel instead of having to replace it, which I'm sure is saving a ton of cost...

    Diminished Value in NY

    I'll post when I find out. I already had a service appointment for a suspension squeak next Monday, so I'm hoping I can just leave the car there and either get a loaner from Tesla or through the insurance company.
