    Car is dead after unplugging at supercharger

    I had wk057 install a 100kWh pack in my P85D a few years ago. I've taken it to Tesla for service many times, even last year when I had a slew of BMS error messages and the car was bricked. Turned out to be bad grounds, but still, it is painfully obvious that I no longer have an 85 battery and a...

    Car is dead after unplugging at supercharger

    I had the exact same question. Seems very unlikely they wouldn't know he's pushing a BS story. If Amazon can keep the entire purchase history of every single customer for more than 20 years, Tesla can keep textual service records for the lift of every car. The amount and cost of the...

    Model S Floor model purchase is a Tesla scam

    You're only real grip is the Ludicrous that went missing. Start with filing a complaint to go to arbitration (check your sales agreement). You should have done this immediately. Doing it now will likely have less of a chance of succeeding. You didn't mention any other missing features...

    Inner Tire wear?

    I think the tan colored dirt on the inside half of the right tire is an optical illusion just making it look like the tread is worn.

    Cybertruck Tear down

    Over the last two decades they've really perfected this technology from racing video games, steering wheel consoles, and 'force feedback'. I wouldn't worry about that part.

    Wanted: 19" Model S Turbine wheels for 2015 P85D

    Tesla never made 19" Turbine wheels. They did make 19" "Slipstream" wheels which are similar to the Turbines: Example: 19″ Tesla Model S Slipstream Factory OEM Black Wheels Rims Tires Goodyear – Factory Wheel Republic You can also buy very similar aftermarket 19" Turbine wheels here...

    MS Plaid demo cars with over 13000km (8000mi)

    I'll research this tomorrow, but I don't think that's actually legal. Any "new" cars are still new, unregistered, and untitled. Since these cars are never registered or titled to the first real buyer, there's no point in time for the warranty clock to start ticking. I think Tesla by law (in...

    MS Plaid demo cars with over 13000km (8000mi)

    I bought my first P85+ as an inventory car in 2014 with more than 8000 miles. At delivery you could tell it wasn’t a brand new car. Also, for new “inventory” cars, the factory warranty starts when YOU buy the car, not when it was first driven. At least that’s how it works in the US. If it’s a...

    Honest review of the Cybertruck

    It’s unfortunate your other post get deleted and you were banned. But that sounds like a total Elon Musk move, so it’s not surprising that his sycophants fall right in line like that. Thanks for your honest review.

    Diy 3g to 4g(lte) help please

    Upgrading from the 3G radio to LTE requires taking the MCU out and replacing the daughter card as shown in the first video. It's not just replacing the SIM card. But you should just upgrade to MCU2 which includes the LTE upgrade. MCU2 is night and day better compared to MCU1...

    What if Tesla goes bankrupt?

    It's not a binary thing. It's not "update bricks car" vs "flawless software". There's a huge spectrum of "bad design" that doesn't lead to firmware updates bricking cars.

    What if Tesla goes bankrupt?

    I said “to make sure…” that the cars don’t brick themselves. Tesla software engineering isn’t the best out there these days and who knows what single line of code wouldn’t fail if the car couldn’t connect to HQ after some unknown period of time. Teslas are chock full of “bad design.” See: rain...

    What if Tesla goes bankrupt?

    Hypothetically a complete shutdown would most likely never, ever happen. Tesla as a company would most likely be sold or acquired (at a discount) by some other company (or investment group) and would keep all those services running. Maybe firmware updates would slow down or stop, but the...

    I totally agree. Sounds like vaporware. I'm no physicist, but a <1 sec 0-60- -- what are the G forces with that? Doesn't sound like it would be pleasant unless you're a trained fighter pilot.

    Tesla charging $6,000 to $6,500 to wrap the truck!!! Yikes. Save your money!!

    Dude, in case you haven't noticed lately, Tesla is a public company whose objective is to maximize shareholder value. This isn't an "Elon being Elon" thing, he likely had very little to do with this plan or factory wrapping option. If TSLA can make bank wrapping CTs from people who don't know...

    Powerwall dilemma -- not sure if I have any options

    Powerwall dilemma -- not sure if I have any options

    Unfortunately no.. I already asked. My red 'founders' powerwall is an older version (V1) and not only is the cover ever-so-slightly different size, the Tesla Energy techs aren't in the business to start disassembling two PWs in my basement to swap covers. It's just not something they'd...

    Powerwall dilemma -- not sure if I have any options

    Hi folks. Years ago I won one of the rare red "signed" powerwalls from the referral program. I had it installed in my home at the time as purely backup as we didn't have solar. We moved from that house in 2020 and put the red PW into storage waiting for Tesla solar to be installed at the...

    Summer tires in the middle on winter?

    I don't like staggered setups -- ESPECIALLY in winter wheels/tires where a staggered setup offers zero additional benefit. None. In fact it's worse if you're driving in snow -- wide tires are awful for snow. I've argued before that even in staggered summer setups are only for machismo bragging...

    Supercharging for “lifetime of car” transfers under the current FSD & Supercharging transfer to new cars

    Don't bet on that. Most Tesla sales reps would have no idea what you're talking about nor know how to correctly answer your question. You might be better of going to a service center and asking them what option code you have -- SC01, SC04, SC05, SC06 -- they all mean something different.

    Summer tires in the middle on winter?

    Option 1: https://shop.tesla.com/product/model-s-19_-tempest-wheel-and-winter-tire-package Option 2: 19" Tesla Wheel and Winter Tire Package - Model S (June 2021 - Present) I would strongly suggest not getting staggered winter wheels/tires (Option 1). And stick with 19" rims for winter.

    Going from a S to a X

    I would double check this -- I don't think either are usable on a 2024. Maybe the rims and tires are, but I really doubt the roof rack is transferable -- especially if you have a sunroof.

    Requirements for Garage plug for Model 3

    Getting a 240v circuit at 50 amps so you can charge at 40amps is way more than most people need. Running a 60amp circuit will be much more expensive with only very marginal benefits. At 40 amps, you can still charge from zero to full overnight. Rarely is there need for more/faster charging.

    Trust in “Demo Vehicles”

    I bought my first P85+ as an inventory car in 2014 with 8600 miles and a pretty good discount. Car was like-new when I took delivery and never gave me any issues (other than are normal for early RWD Model S) Well then if it's not for you, it's not for you. Only you can make that call.

    Can my friend transfer his Cybertruck reservation to me?

    You can change the email address on the account once you login. The current account owner could log in and change the email address to a new account, then transfer the entire account. Easy peasey.
