    California DMV - Plates & HOV Stickers

    I mailed mine on December 31. Bought my car in June but with Covid it made sense to wait for the extra year of eligibility. I wonder if it takes them till 2022, if I'll get the next sticker? :)

    California DMV - Plates & HOV Stickers

    It's official! BLUE for 2021! Glad I waited. With Covid and WFH anyway I wasn't going to use it this year, and the blue will look a lot more mellow than orange.

    Consumer Reportrs Drops Model S from Reliability list

    Let's be clear, they currently make the best EV product, period, hands down. People wanting a good EV that has a fantastic fast charging network have no other realistic choices. Try driving a non-tesla cross country. And despite the issues, the car itself is still great. Choices are coming in...

    Supercharger - Chula Vista, CA (LIVE 4 Aug 2020, 12 V3 stalls)

    Very strange. I’ve had 3 poor experiences in 3 different stalls in a row. Recently got 200kw elsewhere so not my car.

    Enhanced Autopilot is BACK!!

    Wow! I was for a moment so happy that I hadn't paid $7000 for FSD when I saw this offer, and tempted to pay the $4k for the features I thought I wanted when I bought my car, but didn't think they were worth it. But then I thought for a while and realized that even this wasn't worth $4000 any...

    Supercharger - Chula Vista, CA (LIVE 4 Aug 2020, 12 V3 stalls)

    I was there Friday around 4:30-5pm, in a new model S LR+ capable of 225kw, arrived with 25%, never saw over 105kw, averaged 70-80kw, charged to 60%.

    Supercharger - Chula Vista, CA (LIVE 4 Aug 2020, 12 V3 stalls)

    The last two times i charged here, charging performance on the stalls that were not broken was nowhere near peak, was getting about 70-90kw on a 40% battery that should have been able to pull mid 100s

    I've loved Tesla for 7 years. But after years of abuse, I'm out

    Regarding all the discussion on holding value, I will throw in my experience. The car I purchased in june of 2017, a base model s 100d with only EAP and blue paint, had a $99k sticker or about $92k because of the available federal rebate so we can compare apples to apples. Let's take off another...

    Thankful for biodefense mode

    Never imagined I’d be using it as much as I have been the last week. Thought it was a fun gimmick when I bought the car but now I truly have experienced the real value of it.

    Model S Trade-in heads up

    This was end of June. At that time it was only inventory cars delivered by June 30. They were trying to juice their 2Q numbers. Considering their earning and stock price looks like it worked.

    Model S Trade-in heads up

    Oh wow missed that you said 162 I was just estimating. For sure though you could do a lot better than I could have With a private party sale.

    Model S Trade-in heads up

    Wow.....I must have gotten really lucky. You've got basically $40k more in options than I did.

    FSD on a trial basis? Or as a monthly leased service?

    Nope. How many people who would have paid the $8000 try the monthly option instead, and immediately cancel after they realize the features aren't there? I'm thinking that would offset the increase from customers like youl

    FSD on a trial basis? Or as a monthly leased service?

    Why doesn't it make financial sense for Tesla? Because the value is not there currently for the consumer. Everyone paying $7000-$8000 now has either been tricked (if they paid monthly they'd cancel) or is holding out in hope for future benefits (they would wait to subscribe until those benefits...
