    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    Yes, there are two Model S in my service region being used right now that I know of. The last two mobile service calls (one of which was less than a month ago) were provided by a tech driving an S with TESLA SERVICE across the side.

    Show of hands… Adaptive Suspension

    Oddly enough I was just commenting today about a car I had long long ago that had an incredible ride of the same general size of the S. 1997 Lincoln Continental. I know that name brings images of boxy to your head but the 95-97 era cars were actually sleek, powerful, and surprisingly fun to...

    Thought I'd throw my update in after a lot more miles in the seat and a new (sorta) observation. I've been playing with advanced settings for a while trying to zero in on the best "all purpose" setting to set and forget and currently have the following setting as my favorite. Similar to what...

    Thanks for the suggestion. I tried the custom settings of "Ride Comfort all the way left to Comfort and Handling all the way to the right to Sport" and on the interstate I would say it improved the ride noticeably for me. On surface streets with a surface that was not rough but ... I guess...

    FSD discussion

    Agreed, and getting off topic but did also want to note that he often defends Tesla when something is blatantly false, such as "sudden unintended acceleration". He can get a little wound up on things and exaggerate, sure, but it's not for nefarious reasons.

    Steam integration for Model S built after Feb 2022 only?

    I have a late January build with VIN ending in 681xx that does have 16 GB and I just ran steam successfully on it.

    Help Fight the FUD

    The latest video Kyle put out today showing how all the new EA chargers in Colorado are failing in the cold has this piece of commentary in it if you listen at 23:30 for about a minute. From this point. "I keep coming to the same conclusion, buy a Tesla or buy a gas car to go on trips" He...

    Help Fight the FUD

    I've known Kyle for many years, from long before he started making youtube videos. He is not one to manipulate and intentionally spread FUD.

    Steam integration for Model S built after Feb 2022 only?

    Ahh ok thanks, the S is on the FSD beta build so will probably get the update in 2 weeks (6 months).

    Steam integration for Model S built after Feb 2022 only?

    How did you confirm the 16GB? My car was delivered in February but built end of January so I’m really curious if I have 8 or 16.

    Blue ridge parkway road trip

    I'd drive from Cherokee to Asheville, charge at the new Biltmore Village supercharger, and then continue on the BRP all the way up to the VA line and then go to the Mt. Airy supercharger. That stretch from supercharger to supercharger is 200 miles, but travelling on the BRP, even with the big...

    Efficiency of OEM 19" Pirelli P0 Elect Summers vs OEM Continental All-Seasons

    TeslaFi has a comparison drop down in the efficiency reports. Also, this is the data I have so far on my P0 Summer tires.

    Refresh Transponder

    Just wanted to note should anyone else be looking through this thread that mine is working fine to the right of the rearview mirror in a 2022 Model S. I have not tried it anywhere else but can confirm it works here.

    Lifetime Average Wh/mi

    I'm guess you are on 19" wheels? I have a Jan 22 built Model S LR with 19" tempest aero wheels but they gave me the Pirelli summer tires (really wanted the all seasons). Just curious if you are on Pirelli summer or the Continental All Season tires. Also for my car I'm at 7500 miles and ~280...

    Mine is a January 2022 built Model S LR, so there is some issue that impacts some 2022 cars at least.

    Ok, I had a thought ... and feel free to tell me I'm crazy. Heck I thought I was when I tested it and figured that pacebo might be kicking in ... so I got a friend and ran through the test runs with him in the car and he fully agrees. Anyway. I have the issue of the rapid "bouncy" or...

    Model S LR manufactured January 2022 and has the "bouncy house" suspension issue. Question... does this impact only LR or have there been Plaids with the issue?

    Efficiency of OEM 19" Pirelli P0 Elect Summers vs OEM Continental All-Seasons

    Welp, I just re-activated my TeslaFi account and will collect data for a while on the Pirellis before switching to the Continentals. I will run into the same issue of not having the early data on the Pirellis as they already have 6800 miles on them, but will at least have another data point...

    Efficiency of OEM 19" Pirelli P0 Elect Summers vs OEM Continental All-Seasons

    Great info! One question is regarding other influencing factors, mainly time of year/temp. Were the Continentals used more in colder weather? Since the P0s are summer tires this would make sense and I thought I'd ask. I was really expecting the Continentals to have slightly higher efficiency...

    Efficiency of OEM 19" Pirelli P0 Elect Summers vs OEM Continental All-Seasons

    Thanks, I'm going to switch them out for the OEM Continentals in the fall (or sooner) and was wondering if or by how much the efficiency would improve. I know the Continentals didn't get great reviews but I'm not interested in switching back and forth from summer to winter tires and more...

    Efficiency of OEM 19" Pirelli P0 Elect Summers vs OEM Continental All-Seasons

    I can't seem to find any info specific to the efficiency differences between the two OEM 19" options that come with the refresh Model S. Mine came with the 19" OEM Pirelli P0 Elect Summer tires (not to be confused with the new Pirelli P0 Elect All-Season or Winter) and I'm trying to find out...

    Supercharger - Chapel Hill, NC

    The report was wrong, I'm here now, still no power to the pedastals. Meter still shows 0 kWh used (at least that's what I think I'm looking at since kWh only shows up when it cycles to that screen).

    Supercharger - Chapel Hill, NC

    Saw a report on Facebook that it was up, but they didn't mention that they actually charged there so still not 100% confirmed. I'll run down there right now to confirm, live close by.

    Show of hands… Adaptive Suspension

    Ha, I was thinking the same thing. I can feel a difference between sport and comfort but on certain surfaces comfort is just as harsh with the bounce that sport doesn't have, while on other surfaces it's much smoother. Seems to depend a lot on the particular surface and speed. On the concrete...

    2022 Refreshed Model S / Plaid - Cup holder too small?

    Well this is as good as I can get it without taking it apart. That last little bit will not go under.

    2022 Refreshed Model S / Plaid - Cup holder too small?

    However, looking close maybe not. The section here is not smooth and tapered like yours

    2022 Refreshed Model S / Plaid - Cup holder too small?

    I pulled it out again and will try using a business card to work it in when I get home. Here are a couple of pics. The molding under it does look like yours underneath it seems.

    2022 Refreshed Model S / Plaid - Cup holder too small?

    Looked like the same plastic mold that you have but I stopped as soon as I realized I was pulling out the edge that was pinched in the top. The edge in the top is paper thin so I had to wiggle it back and forth a bunch to get it to (mostly) go back in. Can't 100% confirm it's the same plastic...

    2022 Refreshed Model S / Plaid - Cup holder too small?

    This is what I mean, that bit in the bottom right I’ve messed with for a while trying to get back under the lip. Will need to disassemble the cup holder tray to get it fully back in.

    2022 Refreshed Model S / Plaid - Cup holder too small?

    Oh I know, lol, it was actually really easy to start to pull it out but the top edges are tucked under the top piece and while I got much of it tucked back in, one small section seems impossible now. So it’s not adhered and can be pulled out but unless there is an easy way to disassemble the...

    2022 Refreshed Model S / Plaid - Cup holder too small?

    Try harder you say .. well I did. It started to come out and now it's pretty screwed up. No way I can get it back in the way it was before. Got close but it'll never be the same. Be warned that trying to remove it may be a very bad idea.

    Active road noise reduction - temporarily unavailable

    Supercharger - Chapel Hill, NC

    Still off right now. Noticed that the pedestals are missing the side screws just like the one in Durham before it was activated. I think they leave them out for easy access of the activation tech perhaps. In Durham, they pulled all pedestal covers off, did something, and put them all back on...

    Drove by tonight. No power to the meter yet. Progression will be power to the meter on the side of the transformer (display shows something) and then final checks and activation. Could be a few days to a week or more after the meter shows power to the time it works.

    2021+ Model S LR Delivery Tracking

    Just got word that my car (Blue/White 19" wheels) is being delivered with the damn Pirelli summer tires on it. I was really hoping for the all seasons but am hearing all the cars are coming with summer tires right now, at least to this area (North Carolina). Also I had asked previously for...

    2021+ Model S LR Delivery Tracking

    Since it hasn't been mentioned in a while in this thread, for those taking delivery recently, did your car come with summer or all season tires on it? Or is there a different thread where it's discussed? Would much rather have all season as most have stated, and I did ask about getting all...

    Supercharger - Chapel Hill, NC

    The transformer is basically a huge cube, usually dark green or grey and around 4-5 feet high, that will sit on the concrete pad that is currently surrounded by caution tape in your pic. So it's not there yet. Once it is, usually a week or so until it goes live.
