    Hilton Ocean City

    Just finished a stay there and found they have two Tesla charging stations. They don't show up when searching for charging in the car and I did a quick search of this site and didn't find them mentioned. The are located in the satellite parking lot right on Coastal Highway. One does need an...

    Canceling order due to autopilot death news?

    I use autopilot all the time and am still not comfortable with it. I tend to think I am more attentive with it on than off. I'm very comfortable with it off as I have 40+ years of driving a non-autopilot car and know what it could do. If you keep reminding yourself this is BETA software and...

    Trade in tax deduction in MD...

    This is well known by both the dealers others you might trade your car into (CarMax, Nico buys cars, etc). It takes some time, but I've always found getting quotes from separate "buy my car" places will give you a pretty good idea of the best price you can get. Then take that amount to the...

    Tesla's Software To-Do List

    I took the recommendation of suggestions from this site and created an exit profile that moves the drivers seat back and raises the steering wheel for easier exit. Seems to me that programming 101 would suggest that these two actions should happen in parallel. Today the seat moves back then...

    Model 3 will have less features than the S. Which one would not make it?

    Software can most definitely turn off or charge a fee for supercharging for those that abuse. While the letter sent already didn't use very good logic to determine distribution, big brother knows every time you charge. Rather than just not allow or charge for access based on class, it's much...

    California dealers file complaint about the Tesla referral program

    It is birddogging according to Virginia law. If other states have similarly written law, Tesla will have to stop it. The fact that the law is pretty stupid doesn't matter.

    So they just gave you a discounted rate for evenings (after 8:00)? Does it include weekends? Did they bump up the daytime rate?

    Plug-In Vehicle Charging Pilot Open to qualified Pepco residential Maryland customers

    Is there anybody on here that is still in this program? Have the rates changed considerably since you joined? I'm looking into understanding this enough to be able to make an informed decision about joining. The Pepco site is awful and provides no real insight into the rate I would be charged...

    How long to expect before I'm contacted by the DS?

    I received a hand off email from the sales consultant I was working with, introducing my DS on the day of confirmation. I received an introductory email from my DS with a bunch of questions on the same day. Handled as well as I could have expected.

    Info on delivery of my car from the factory to the Service Center

    Mine was trained to Chicago, then trained to New Jersey and trucked to Rockville MD. I suspect yours will take a similar route, minus the truck south.

    What Swag did Tesla give you at delivery?

    DS offered two leather holders which I had already purchased from Abstract Ocean. Went to the mall store and got a jacket for the wife. Works for me.

    5 Hours After Delivery

    Were you playing "let's learn how to charge" on my car? :) Adam at Rockville is very thorough and asked 100 times, do you have any questions. This forum provided 99.994% of the answers ahead of time. The paperwork was wrong on mine as well (missing 2nd n in last name) but we went ahead and...

    Current Owners - What are the must have options and options you could live without?

    Some things may be dependent on color choices (i.e. you can't get black headliner without premium interior) I believe there is a bit more headroom with the pano - won't matter if your 5' nothing might if your 6' plus. Have you sat in a non-pano to see if it matters? I did get autopilot but I'm...

    Tesla 4 year service plan - do we need it? Is it worth it?

    Much tougher choice if you lease with Tesla's 3 year lease. Divided by 4 makes much more sense than by 3.

    Tesla Trade in to Carmax Quotes

    You most certainly can take a car back to CarMax after the 7 days are up. They will just reappraise and maybe give you a different number. I traded in a MB E350 a few years ago and got the same price a month after the initial appraisal.
