    Supercharger - San Diego, CA (Qualcomm / Pacific Heights Blvd., 12 V2 stalls)

    I charged there yesterday along with at least five other Teslas (and a sixth was pulling away when I was arriving.) If you were there and saw a blue 85D from AZ it was mine. My girlfriend and I walked to Chili's; the walk wasn't bad and overall it took us about as much time to walk and eat as it...

    Best way to listen to audio books and/or podcasts in MS?

    I use Bluetooth to my iPod or Nexus 6 to play podcasts. I use the PocketCasts app because it syncs podcast history and state between those two devices and my PC besides.

    I got a "NO LICENSE PLATE / REGISTRATION" ticket today.

    Tesla isn't a dealer in Texas and can't register cars for their owners.

    Can't Access Private Websites on WiFi?

    Not really, that's a pretty standard security policy. I wonder if it allows connections to RFC 6598 space.

    D owners: When does current limiting occur?

    Yesterday was the first time I had my 85D down to 40% SOC, but I didn't see the dashed line indicating limited power.

    85 vs. 85D

    I got the AWD because I thought the efficiency gains may be worth it, and even though our weather here in the Valley of the Sun is very calm 350 or more days a year, it's very easy to drive from Phoenix to Prescott or Flagstaff or any number of other places where they have real weather.

    DCU is only giving me 50% of the loan I asked for since I never borrowed this much

    I had a good experience applying with Alliant, they approved me for 100% financing in a matter of hours. I ended up going with one of my current banks, though; USAA was a pain to get approved by - they asked for a lot more documentation than any other banks or credit unions I looked at - but...

    Tracking Model S 85D Delivery Thread

    I took delivery of my car this afternoon! And then promptly drove it approx. 1.5mi to the detailer for clear bra and opti-coat, ha. Can't wait to put it through its paces when I get it back.

    Tracking Model S 85D Delivery Thread

    It wouldn't surprise me at all if my future children get used Model 3s as first cars. Model S might be pushing it :P On topic, my Tesla dashboard has said "Late February" for several weeks now, but my DS is saying early March. Here's hoping things skew in the dashboard's direction. Car hasn't...

    Tesla one step closer to direct sales in Arizona - Feb 4, 2015

    It'll go to the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, and then the Rules Committee. You can always follow the progress of a bill on azleg.gov. Edited to add: Committees don't have to hear every bill that they're assigned. If you want to see this happen, write to the members of the T&I...

    New Version of EVTripPlanner

    I think the browser-based mobile app is the best compromise. A well done browser app is nearly as good as a dedicated mobile app. But if you make a "real" app, then I vote Android.

    Tracking Model S 85D Delivery Thread

    The only time Tesla has contacted me out of the Scottsdale SC was when they mistakenly thought I had ordered a P85D and my delivery date was in December - so about a month before what they thought would be my delivery date. I don't expect to hear from them again until February at this point.

    Supercharger - Benson, AZ

    EVSE Tax Credit Good Through 31 Dec. 2014

    I haven't seen a thread for this yet, so I thought I'd point out that if you have installed an EVSE this year (or will) in the US then you might be eligible for this tax credit that was just extended last week.

    Tesla HPWC On EBay from Canada

    I wonder if theirs is specified for the constant throughput rather than momentary maximum (breaker rating in US). Though that would mean they only have analogues for 40, 50, 80, and 100A circuits and the rest of the settings are much lower than the US counterparts.

    Can no longer buy metal pedals for non-perf cars?

    Yeah, before there was no difference in seat comfort, only in styling (according to the salesperson), but we could get seats with piping. I didn't order them before because I thought it was too much to pay for red piping. Now there's a difference in comfort and we can't get them without going to...

    9 Books That Elon Musk Thinks Everyone Should Read

    Asimov always presumes that AI develops under circumstances where safeguards are in place to prevent it from taking action to harm humans, or where it can be contained when it goes awry. I think it's at least as likely for it to develop without such precautions; it wouldn't surprise me at all...

    Limits of Model S charging ?

    Even if the engineering problems were solved, Tesla has said before that they're concentrating on expanding the network as fast as possible. I'm sure they'd rather spend their money putting in more SCs at an adequate charging rate than fewer sites at maximum charging rate.

    Destination Charging at Hotels

    Larry, since you've had contact with hotels pre-installation, have you followed up with any of them post-install to see if they've noticed people using their charging stations? A few weeks or months post-install, I am curious if they are happy to have gone to the trouble.

    Ex-Tesla and NASA Engineers Make a Light Bulb That’s Smarter Than You

    Deliveries are now pushed back? Q4 already had a very optimistic delivery projection.

    I'm not talking about me, I'm talking about everyone else who ordered in August/September and had their orders pushed from October/November to December. I only mentioned my order because what the design tool told me is the same thing it told them.

    Deliveries are now pushed back? Q4 already had a very optimistic delivery projection.

    Except that the expectations that they're setting in the design tool do not align with end-of-quarter in the US. When I initially designed my Model S the design studio said to expect delivery in "Late October." I decided to push it out myself to Q1 2015 for financial reasons, but Tesla should...

    Chicago service center reception

    I test drove a Model S at that SC while I was on vacation in Chicago over Labor Day. Nice folks in there, and super low pressure. Of course the cars sell themselves. I have a deposit in now. :) And yeah, they showed me how to use the superchargers in their parking lot, so they're there.
