    Lucid Air vs. MS?

    Interested in details and your thought process - I had an Air GT reserved but went with Plaid also, mostly because of the charging network like bkcyk mentioned. The Tesla is super easy to own, drive, road trip, etc, but I still do like the uplevel interior materials in the Air. I do think I’d...

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

    That vandalism, and the stuff that happened at Stonehenge last week, infuriates me. I want them all to face maximum pain - such a-holes. Yet another reason why I hate people.

    Oh man - that is one of the best looking Teslas I’ve ever seen. Gorgeous setup!

    Seats wrinkle as soon as you sit in them - don’t look for problems, just enjoy the hell out of it. Everything else looks great and I love that color

    I don’t mind the 19” aero covers at all - if the wheels underneath were really sweet I would maybe remove them, but don’t think they look all that great anyway when naked.

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    FWIW - I have driven without front plates in Texas for 25+ years and have never been stopped for it, nor given a ticket for it when stopped for other reasons. I do have it on my Tesla since the mount was already there, but other cars I haven’t installed on the front.

    How is that possible? I have Progressive and I’m paying more than double that

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

    Sounds like a future where humanoids’ main job will be creating more humanoids. With 8 billion +/- people in the world, and a significantly smaller # than that who are working or in developed countries that would/could support this, it makes 1 bil humanoids sound crazy. Replacement theory...

    Lucid Air vs. MS?

    I would think the Gravity will be bigger than the X, no? It’s a 3 row SUV that should be longer and wider than the X, but I haven’t seen one in person so I can’t really tell from pictures. It looks pretty nice and the interior will be way nicer than an X or S.

    Supercharger - Luling, TX

    Yeah no cover on any of the SCs and usually a pretty good walk to the store stinks in the rain and in 110 degree summer.

    Lucid Air vs. MS?

    I had a Lucid Air Grand Touring on order before switching and getting a Model S Plaid. I think the Lucid is sharp and 516 miles range on the 19s is seriously good. But, and a big but - EA can’t touch the supercharger network, and they don’t have nearly enough service centers around to take care...

    Cathie Wood has figured out the best way for her to make money is by staying in the news all the time. Aside from one big year, when lots of stuff made money, she has been dead wrong about everything. Throwing out ridiculous valuations keeps her in the conversation among people who want to...

    Software Update Advanced does nothing, right?

    I don’t have FSD but have been getting updates about once a week lately. Have another one waiting to download now - 2024.20.1 - but I’m away from home at a hotel.

    What’s up with the listed mileage discrepancies on tesla inventory stock?

    Yep my 22 Plaid is rated for 396 on 19” wheels. Ucmndd has it right and in reality nothing changed so it’s a big nothingburger.

    "Refreshed" Model S model VIBRATION tracking and information thread!!!

    The vibration on mine - 22 Plaid - has not changed at all with software updates. Between 38-50, worse when cold.

    Reason #23,125 of why I hate dealers.

    Auto Lock & Key Fob

    I could be wrong but I thought if you left any kind of key in the car, the door handles will retract when you walk away so maybe you think it locked, but anyone could just touch the handle to open the door and drive off. I think it only locks when you take all keys with you (like E90alex said)

    That’s awesome - I wish I was in that cohort. Like the pattern for most of my investments, I did pretty well on my initial buy of Tesla way back when - but sold when it quickly went up 20% thinking I was so smart, only to watch it run forever while I sat on the sidelines. I tend to make a...

    unsold teslas...

    Totally agree. Even worse, they seem to have zero editors to proofread articles and the writers are middle school level at best. I’m guessing the pay scale is not top level. 😜

    "Must-have" accessories for Model S?

    SCs in Houston and all around Texas are much better now than even 3 years ago. I do like to have my mobile connector with the 14-50 adapter in my trunk just in case - I’ve even plugged in to a regular outlet overnight while traveling just to pick up an extra 40 miles or so. I also installed...

    If the BoD really thought that there was no way Tesla was going to hit those goals back in 2018, then what the hell were they doing setting them? Who wants a board that doesn’t deal with reality and actually has goals they think might be realistic to hit (with appropriate incentives)? This...

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

    Hypothetical alternate scenario: Let’s say back in 2018, instead of this particular comp plan, the demand was that Tesla must buy Twitter in its entirety and give it to Elon, or else he will not focus on Tesla any more and will develop technologies at his other private companies instead. Seems...

    Any hacks to erase strikes?

    This isn’t correct - I have one strike, over 2 months ago, and none since. It still sits there, mocking me and telling me if I have 4 more I’ll be in Tesla jail.

    Man I hate that quote - it is so cliche and gets used for everything. How about if you already have the puck, are in complete control of the puck, are a better stick handler than anyone else, have a clear path to the goal, and you already are so far ahead in the game - and then still somehow...

    Driver's seat stuck at rearmost position... Tesla SC wants $2,650 parts + $539 labor to replace entire seat base

    That completely sucks. I’d love to see the rationale for that. What a business model - delay delay delay your deliveries, then hammer the trade values. Just sell it outright and skip the trade altogether.

    Demo Plaid Options

    I would have jumped all over that one - although I don’t see FSD anywhere. $82k for a basically brand new Plaid is a good deal that would be a great deal with FSD.

    Demo Plaid Options

    I would get the 24 and all the latest and greatest stuff. I have a 22 and I wish I had some of those items but can’t pull the trigger to trade up. Are those important to you? What about leasing brand new since you don’t drive many miles? How does a demo only have 53 miles? I think I drove...

    Without camera based detection what is the point of having sentry mode on? Isn’t it to capture whatever on camera?

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

    Saying what you heard from a 3rd party is drastically different than being the actual root source yourself. I am 25 years old (I’m really not anywhere close to that) = I am lying You saying about me “he is 25 years old” based on what I told you = you being lied to Elon is the root source.

    Tesla sucks

    BMW is known to have wheels made of marshmallow cream. I had bent wheels every other month on my 750 - it was amazing. Just looking at them wrong and they bent themselves. Any 20-22” wheel with rubber band tires are going to have issues, not just Tesla.

    It’s actually $100 a year in the US if you pay for the year instead of $10/month - so there’s that. 😜 I think it’s worth it just for the live traffic.

    About Insurance Rates

    Both my car and my house insured have doubled this year, along with home appraisals being out of control too. No way this is sustainable, when insurance and taxes end up more than a mortgage or car payment. Reinsurance companies are hitting all time high profits and the state regulators do...

    lol - the very definition of a liar. Yes officer, I know I spoke false information, but if you think about it, that’s sort of like telling the truth in a bizarro world kind of way. Saying and posting falsehoods is the same as lying.

    New owner supercharging first day without app

    You actually just take pics of the paperwork and load them into the app - I don’t recall if it was an actual email or not but it goes to someone at Tesla who “approves” it and then it shows in your account. If I figured it out it has to be super easy. 😜
