    2021 Refresh S LR Delivery Tracking

    Congrats! Things happen fast when they happen! So, poster above who ‘doesn’t expect it in the next 4 days’ I wouldn’t be so sure.

    Supercharger - Bakersfield, CA - Copus Rd. (LIVE 30 Jun 2021, 20 V3 stalls)

    A truck stop is coming here, as mentioned earlier in the thread. Easy to miss though.

    Supercharger - Marina Del Rey, CA (permit approved, 8 V3 stalls)

    Good find , perhaps I’ll scout it soon for any construction signs.

    2021 Refresh S LR Delivery Tracking

    Team eoq push checking in, edd goes forward 2 days every 2 days. Scared by the reports of sudden jumps to December. Sep 24-30 for me still. Tbh October would be fine by me. If it pops up Friday or Sat/Sun at this point getting the loan finalized will be a scramble for sure. Hoping to attempt...

    Supercharger - Culver City, CA - LA Platform (under construction Sep 2021, 8 V3 stalls)

    $2 for first hour, goes up $1 for each additional hour. I think that went to like 5-6 hours, forget exact max.

    2021 Refresh S LR Delivery Tracking

    Mine had the same move today. Sep 22-30 to 24-30. Maybe we’re in same SoCal batch.

    Supercharger - Venice Crossroads, Los Angeles (permit found, 44 V3 stalls)

    Scouted today, no sign of construction at all.

    Supercharger - Culver City, CA - LA Platform (under construction Sep 2021, 8 V3 stalls)

    More pics. This isn't a great spot for a charger IMO -- it's right at the bend in a tiny structure, Teslas pulling into the spots will back up traffic flow on a very small tight corner for everyone getting to higher levels of the structure.

    Supercharger - Culver City, CA - LA Platform (under construction Sep 2021, 8 V3 stalls)

    Confirmed construction underway! V3 chargers on second floor. This is a paid parking structure. I see 7 pedestals but only 5 spots marked on the ground currently. Will post a few more pics in a bit.

    2021 Refresh S LR Delivery Tracking

    Sep 21-30 to Oct 7-27 today 😢 But, maybe October will get me a 2022 model year.

    Longshot anyone on here see or own the Model 3 in San Francisco with the Plate BatMobile?

    Hey, Ive seen that car too, I think, at Philippe in DTLA. It did look nice.

    RWD LR Order?

    Speaking for myself (and i suspect others...) It's because we didn't really urgently need a car. The Pandemic did it for me. I have Prius, getting a Tesla for fun, wanted longest range Model Y for road trips, didn't need AWD. Suddenly, like a lot of well off tech folks here, i'm 100% work from...

    Blue Model S 2021 Refresh LR on order, May 17. Stil haven't canceled the LR RWD Y order, but will do so if the MS ships. :)

    I've been blank for a while. Originally said Sep. Ordered May 17 LR.

    According to SawyerMerritt tonight on Twitter, from some insider information, the LR RWD Y is coming soon. Screen Shot 2021-02-15 At 8.39.17 PM by benh57 posted Feb 15, 2021 at 8:40 PM

    $7000 Tax Credit in 2021 - retroactive?

    Guessing you missed the start of the post you quoted. The AGI limit is for Used only, not new. There is no AGI limit for the credit for new vehicles.

    $7000 Tax Credit in 2021 - retroactive?

    The COVID package is being passed using 'reconciliation', which can only be used once per year, due to silly senate rules. Without use of reconciliation, the Rs can filibuster anything. Of course, its also possible the filibuster itself will go away this year. But, Rs also like low taxes...

    Model Y Long Range Rear Wheel Drive (LR RWD)

    FYI Tesla still has never officially said they wouldn't build the LR RWD MY. The Teslarati article was one rogue sales associate, other ones have not confirmed this and say to still wait. I'm still waiting for mine. Though, i am considering a new Model S now... will need to test drive it / see...

    Supercharger - Los Angeles, CA - Alameda St. (LIVE 17 Sep 2020, 16 urban stalls)

    Is the Stranger Things Experience still going there? I think it may be off due to that?

    Model Y Long Range Rear Wheel Drive (LR RWD)

    I dunno why people keep saying this. If that were the case, my order page on tesla.com would not say 'Long Range Rear Wheel Drive', as it currently, right now, still does. I'm still waiting as work-from-home will continue for another 6-9 months i expect. And i don't feel safe doing roadtrips now.

    RWD MY Waiting Room

    They generally have allowed this. You just have to call and ask nicely/firmly for it. Especially at end of quarter push time.

    Supercharger - Needles, CA (4 V2 stalls)

    Interesting, i wonder if its still on the in-car nav? Maybe they decided to upgrade it or dump the old rough site.

    Supercharger - Sherman Oaks, CA (location speculation, permit not found)

    ... aaand you called it. the date now says 2022 for Sherman Oaks. :D They missed your 3 day deadline by a few days.

    Superchargers in Southern California (location speculation)

    I hadn't checked the official map in a while so i'm not 100% sure which ones are new. Has anyone compiled a full diff of the changes yet? @MarcoRP Just clicking around LA... Bell and Pacific Palisades are coming in Q1 and Q2, probably permits out there. Bell, CA Q1 2021 San Gabriel, CA Q2...

    Wall Connector v3 Firmware Update

    The infinite loading spinner with current FW is a known issue from Tesla support, according to another thread on this site that I am too lazy to seek out :)

    ChargeWeave, the supercharging game (take 4)

    IMO, github issues can be used in place of jira, especially for an open source project.

    ChargeWeave, the supercharging game (take 4)

    Does supercharge.info provide apis / access to their data for all?
  33. benh57

    ChargeWeave, the supercharging game (take 4)

    Looks like a fun project! Something i'll use if i ever get my RWD Y. :D And i'd consider contributing. Not sure Java is the best choice of backend if you want to get a lot of contributors, but probably if you're the primary developer, using what you're familiar with is best.

    RWD MY Waiting Room

    If you changed from RWD to AWD, i recommend pinging an advisor and making sure your order isn't stuck in a bad state, has happened to several folks.

    Supercharger - Malibu, CA (Cross Creek Rd., LIVE 17 Dec 2020, 8 V3 stalls)

    If people don't check the nav and just go to their normal spot, i can see folks missing new superchargers. I imagine Tesla could have some sort of notification if you are idle, havent charged recently, and sitting at a full SC that pops up and says 'it looks like you're waiting for a...

    Model Y Long Range Rear Wheel Drive (LR RWD)

    Well, it ended up working out for the best anyway. Being that i work from home now, and have used my car maybe 15-20 times max since March. And us RWD folks are gonna get better Model Ys than the day 1 folks, dual pane windows, etc.

    L2 EV charging only, in handicapped spot?

    "But the front desk said..." probably won't get you out of a very expensive citation.

    RWD LR Order?

    I suspect that's an error. They still haven't filed CARB certification. So its possible they are secretly making them to sell in Mexico, but seems unlikely.

    Charging infrastructure

    Tell that to Elon who has offered it up repeatedly. The patents are open. Tesla might let other companies use its Supercharger network

    Charging infrastructure

    If Rivian, etc were smart they would take Tesla up on their offer to share a charging standard, and work together to build out the SC network.

    Supercharger - Los Angeles, CA - Promenade at Howard Hughes Center (permit found 20 Nov 2020)

    What makes you think these are Tesla, just math based on the amps + transformers? Seems like a better location for 72kw, similar to playa vista, rather than v3's. I sent them an email asking for any info.

    RWD LR Order?

    The value of a single referral code (1000 SC miles) is about $75 (depending on where you charge). The hassle of getting your $2500 back may or may not be worth that. I know a guy who may be able to apply that code for ya though...

    $1,500 California Clean Fuel Reward

    This is unexpected and great! And no income limits. Tesla SA I'm in touch with applied it to my OG MY RWD preorder which i'm still waiting for without me asking.

    Supercharger - Marina Del Rey, CA (4755 S. Alla Rd., permit found)

    Eh, Playa Vista is a couple miles inland, but Playa Del Rey is on the water :) Anyway, to stay on topic, this is the location of the Tesla Delivery Center. Next to the park on Alla. I wonder if these could be non-public superchargers if they plan to make this into a service center. The service...

    Stiff Ride

    Dumb question: Is there any downside of replacing the shocks/etc with one of these softening packages? It wouldn't decrease range, i imagine? Maybe slightly worse handling / more lean in corners? I did a test drive and both myself and GF also found it pretty harsh. I'd probably want to do this...

    Supercharger - Inyokern, CA - Locust Ave. (LIVE 6 Sep 2021, 12 V3 stalls)

    Is that Nadir's personal address? Seems odd that Tesla would list a condominium address in Long Beach.
