    Understanding Wh/mi (or km)

    What exactly is it you don't understand? wh/mile is your energy consumption in watts x hours / distance. It is exactly the same concept as saying your car burns 8 litres of gas per 100km, except we are talking about quantity of energy instead of volume of gas, because when you fill up your tank...

    "Obstacle detected" - blocking acceleration - very dangerous!

    When it happened to me for the first time, I thought that it is a really nice feature, and that's what I initially said in a french speaking forum here: Système d'évitement des collisions latérales et frontales - Page 2 - Forum Club Tesla Magazine back in late April, so before the X hitting a...

    "Obstacle detected" - blocking acceleration - very dangerous!

    I too had this "obstacle detected, power limited" warning, twice in a few days. In both cases, it happened when I was about to cross a tight intersection in the city centre, so really tight since the street I was coming from was only one lane and so was the crossing street. I floored the go...

    X owner claims unintended acceleration caused accident

    I too believe it is driver error. However, there is something I experienced twice on my S, and I do not understand why it has not worked here: my S reduces power to a ridiculous amount when I start fast in a situation where the sensors believe the risk of collision is too high. No braking, only...

    Cross winds for your Model S vs previous cars?

    I personally find it quite sensitive to cross winds, to my surprise when I experienced it for the first time.

    Réflexions sur ce que devrait être le Modèle 3 pour me plaire

    Hello hillander, Je suis moi aussi belge et un peu dégouté de voir que la section belge est néerlandophone à 100%. Quelque commentaires qui peuvent te rassurer: - Propulsion plutôt que traction: je roule en S depuis plus d'un an et c'est une propulsion alors que toutes mes voitures précédentes...

    Any way to tell if a Model S has the dual chargers without feeding 11+kW into the car?

    Not so sure, single charger can handle up to 11kW, that's 3 phase 16A, but charging in single phase 220V at 32A (so 7kW) works just fine too with a single charger. Therefore max amperage is not a sufficient information to determine if dual-charger is installed. Take a look under the rear seat.

    The Rear Thump Sound

    As I said I have this noise too, and although my drive unit needs to be replaced as well, I do not think this noise is drive unit related. I am becoming convinced that it is indeed something with the AC unit, like a ventilation flap or valve that makes that noise when it changes position.

    The Rear Thump Sound

    My Dec 2014 S85 has starting making this kind of noise recently. Very odd as it happens at full stop only. It is not very loud, but a very low-frequency sound. It is as if some torque was still applied to the transmission, then suddenly not applied anymore, releasing tension on the drive train...

    7.1 Spotify problem, album keep missing

    Not sure how it behaves when you don't have your own premium spotify account. In the car, just go to the controls/parameters of the media player app. In the Spotify box, try playing around with the 'disconnect' and 'restore Tesla account' buttons. This worked for me, but I am using my own...

    7.1 Spotify problem, album keep missing

    Yes, exact same problem. I tried re-connecting to Spotify from the app settings and it worked; my albums were back. Unfortunately, if you have your own premium account, you need to retype your user and password each time and that is a pain.

    Awful noise when turning the wheel

    I have this very same noise (although not as strongly) on my S85 vin above 59k. Tesla had the opportunity to listen to it while they were checking the seatbelts and confirmed it is a steering rack mounting issue and there is zero risk of actual malfunction. However, although they didn't tell...

    Is Autopilot just a gimmick at the moment?

    Same thought for me and my conclusions are: - Better to have two drivers than one (autopilot + human) - It is a first step towards autonomous (or at least safer than human autopilot) driving. The data collection will certainly help improve the autopilot, but it is also very valuable for the...

    Model X Mule Sightings

    For tax reasons I guess, some (if not all) Tesla cars are built and tested in California, then disassembled for shipping to Tilbug (Netherlands) where they are reassembled before actual delivery to the customer.

    Model X Mule Sightings

    Since the cars are shipped to Europe disassembled, I would assume they need to prepare the re-assembly line and properly test the very first cars they produce. A very common route is to drive all the way down to the south of France. People from the Netherlands just love it, from what I could see...

    Model X Mule Sightings

    It has been reported that a camouflaged model X has been spotted at the Chalon en Champagne Supercharger (France). It had a license plate from the Netherlands. My guess is that the assembly line in Tilburg is being tested for production. Sounds like these are the very last steps...

    So, my car was hit by lightning at the Grove City, OH supercharger...

    Very interesting thread and glad the OP was not hurt. I've been thinking about this type of event since the first day I own an S and am positively surprised it has only happened once so far. Does the stall to which the car was connected still work? I would guess it is fried as well. There must...

    Charging possibilities Les Deux Alpes?

    I think this kind of adapter only exists when you build it. If ever you happen to be near Brussels, I'll happily lend it to you for your trip.

    Charging possibilities Les Deux Alpes?

    Also in France there is a good chance you will find Plexo 20A 3P+N outlets in hotels and residences. Build yourself an adapter to the red P17 and charge at 11kWh. That's what I did this winter and it worked great.

    Charger test in Brussels during Easter

    Why dont you test the other way around? Have your electrician check how many amps you draw when your appliances are running at full power (so worst case scenario) and you will know what you have left for the car. In my case, in this scenario charging at 32A will trip the main breaker. Although...

    Enceinte TESLA S85

    C'est bien possible que les choses aient été améliorées. De mon côté, le SC a très bien fait son travail: (presque) plus de vibrations parasites. Ils ont parait-il notamment ajouté du machin d'isolation acoustique dans les portes. Je profite d'ailleurs de ce message pour dire à quel point le...

    Borne de recharge pour la maison (wallbox)
