    2021+ Model S Refresh - white interior thread

    Jealous. Same config, ordered battery day (9/2020), in Maryland, and still no EDD, just a range that keeps moving out (Nov 6-Dec 4). June was after the price increase, right?

    2021+ Model S Refresh - white interior thread

    My conspiracy-theory fear is that the white interior cars are the ones sitting in the Fremont lot since July with rear seats but no front seats or something, and we'll get the very first batch of aged lemons 🤪

    2021+ Model S Refresh - white interior thread

    Wouldn't surprise me - at this point I'd rather they go ahead and maximize 2021 revenue and give me my 12k discounted battery day order in January with an NF VIN after they sort out a few more issues :-)

    2021+ Model S Refresh - white interior thread

    Just got pushed back again today - new window is Nov 6 - Dec 4. Was Oct 25 - Nov 14 up until this morning. RN 1139, ordered on battery day, Plaid/White/White/19"/FSD. Still no VIN, but I'm hoping at this point that I at least get an NF VIN for my troubles :-) My Model X order still has no...

    Tesla wall connector gen3 overheating fix

    It's because clicking the button 5 times (or maybe it's 10?) causes the wall connector to reboot and enable it's management WiFi network for configuration. You can either do that or cycle the breaker which feeds it.

    Safety Score

    It's not counting, but your usage of it is counterintuitively hurting you. If the only time you are following someone is while on AP, you're not getting any "following seconds" racked up. If you're on AP following somebody at 0.9s, then you disengage AP, it only just now starts counting your...

    2021 MS 19” Tempest Delivery Tracking

    My battery day order seems to have settled on November 8-28. No VIN yet. I'm pretty patient, and frankly I wouldn't mind waiting until some of the kinks people are reporting are worked out (and I'd rather have a 2022 VIN at this point for resale value). White/White/Carbon/19"/FSD...

    Walk away door locks (home) - Alarm triggers every time!

    For what it's worth, if you remember to lock/unlock the car manually after summoning, you can avoid the alarm the next morning. Still a pain but might be better than turning the alarm off completely until this gets addressed.

    2021 MS 19” Tempest Delivery Tracking

    Interesting - my EDD went from "February" to "October 21 - November 10". I had actually started the process of home buying, figuring I had plenty of time to get things settled before the Plaid arrived. Wonder how much stock to put in this new date range.

    Unhappy with phantom braking

    There are a variety of causes of phantom braking. What you're describing sounds like the mildest form - the car suddenly changes the set speed at a specific location, either because it saw a speed limit sign, or its map data indicated that it should slow down (supposedly, because other Teslas...

    Not getting any software updates??

    Does nobody even read this thread before saying that they, too, are experiencing the same thing literally every new owner does?

    Tesla App opens wrong garage door

    Yes - that's why Ostrichsak has the option. On an AP2+ car, you don't even have a Summon button (or the feature, obviously) unless you have EAP or FSD. In the past, I think the app didn't even show you the homelink button unless you had Summon since you had to go to the summon page to hit the...

    Not getting any software updates??

    My observation from the never-ending stream of posters with this exact issue is that when a release is ready, they assign the list of VINs that are eligible to that release number as part of the rollout. You won't get an update until your car is through the quarantine period, and then it'll get...

    2021 MS 19” Tempest Delivery Tracking

    Historically, Performance models (i.e. Plaid) get Summer tires, and regular ones (i.e. LR) get all-seasons, regardless of tire size, season, or location.

    2021 MS 19” Tempest Delivery Tracking

    Seems like the white interior is the new boogeyman that's delaying orders. I'm also on the east coast and my order from last september for 19s/white/cf is February... Or they really are delaying the folks who are getting the 12k discount for ordering before the FSD/Plaid price increases, which...

    2021 MS 19” Tempest Delivery Tracking

    You raise a good point - I felt like the rug was pulled out when they cancelled the Plaid+ - I would have gladly waited for the 4680, <9s version of the car. If they do decide they've got 4680 production in good enough shape to launch an actual Plaid+ at the end of 2022, I'll be super pissed.

    2021 MS 19” Tempest Delivery Tracking

    lol. I was expecting to wait until Q1 anyway, since I ordered a Plaid+ back in September 2020 on launch day. I have a little FOMO but honestly it's good for my impulse control to make me wait until they've ironed the bugs out for a few months. Not that it excuses the poor communication on...

    2021 MS 19” Tempest Delivery Tracking

    Same config here, but I feel like I'm the only one who got the email but still doesn't have ANY date. Up until August 1st, my EDD was "July", and it's been blank since. Honestly I'd rather they just tell me February so I can plan for that instead of not knowing when they'll spring it on me...

    2021 MS 19” Tempest Delivery Tracking

    "First Half" is a pretty pointless timeframe considering they didn't even finish the car until the second week of June. Obviously the halo car from a niche EV manufacturer isn't selling as much as the highest volume vehicle in the country :rolleyes: What's your point?
  22. S

    2021 MS 19” Tempest Delivery Tracking

    Yeah - for Models 3/Y. It's not like there was no impact, they were just able to keep their volume going in spite of supply chain challenges.

    2021 MS 19” Tempest Delivery Tracking

    It's not like they're having trouble selling the 21" version. Not sure why anyone thinks Tesla would even consider upgrading folks to 21" wheels for free. Tesla is in no hurry to get you a car - they're selling them faster than they can make them :)

    2021 MS 19” Tempest Delivery Tracking

    Typically, the performance version will come with summer tires, and LR versions will come with all seasons.

    2021 MS 19” Tempest Delivery Tracking

    As of Saturday evening (7/31), my date was still "July". Yesterday (8/1), my date disappeared of course. Today, I can't see my reservation. It's on my account page, and I can click my current S, and my orders for an X Plaid (still says January) and Cybertruck, but clicking my S Plaid...

    2021 MS 19” Tempest Delivery Tracking

    Keep in mind, as unattractive as the 19s are, the 21s are not a good deal at all even without the price increase implications. You're paying $4500 and losing the 19" wheels. You could pay less and get a whole second set of 21" wheels in a style of your choosing and keep the 19s as winter...

    Plaid handling improvements: better wheels, tires, brakes, suspension options

    Model 3 switched to those about a year ago. Wouldn't surprise me if S caught up.

    2021 MS 19” Tempest Delivery Tracking

    It's new since this morning. I didn't have it at 8AM but do have it now. And my delivery date is back to "July". I'm actually hoping to get mine later since I'm in the process of selling mine still lol.

    Drag Strip Mode (Plaid)

    It's going to depend on your temperatures at the time. If it's a 90 degree day it will be very quick. If it's in the 50s it will take a while.

    On 3/Y - yes. Not on S. But good to hear it's probably just waiting for the app to catch up.

    Model S Plaid/LR 2021 Refresh Issues Thread

    I think that's all Teslas, no? When my car goes to sleep it disconnects from WiFi. Only the SMS to the LTE module wakes it up.

    2021 MS 19” Tempest Delivery Tracking

    That's what I'm hoping for. If the bolt pattern is the same, the new wheels are 9.5x21 +40 in the front, and 10.5x21 +45 in the rear. Mine are 9.0x21 +32 in the front and 10.5x21 +38 in the rear and fill out the fenders nicely. I should be good with the wheel pushed out slightly vs OEM...

    2021 MS 19” Tempest Delivery Tracking

    Mine says "July" but not a specific date. No VIN. Ordered in September. Plaid/19"/Pearl White/White+Carbon I wish I knew for certain whether my current set of staggered 21" forged wheels would fit - that's the only reason I didn't feel like paying $4500 for the Arachnids, even though they do...

    V11 is going to be HUGE!

    Only that your software team has to quickly shift toward integrating and qualifying different vendors for other subsystems and chips in the car. He literally said it during the earnings call as the reason they were able to resume production so quickly. But whatever. Lots of tech geniuses who...

    FS: Maryland 2019 Model S Performance

    As my Plaid order nears, I'm putting out feelers and starting the process of selling my car. Pearl White exerior, Black/Carbon Fiber interior, Model S Performance. August 2019 build. 19" Sonic Carbon Slipstream wheels. I have a set of 21" VS Forged wheels on there now, but it appears they will...

    V11 is going to be HUGE!

    You said that @diplomat33 should have regrets about sharing information and speculation, in a thread specifically designed for that, but in a smarmy way. This thread should just be locked and deleted at this point 🤪

    V11 is going to be HUGE!

    What's your point? That a global supply chain shortage caused Tesla to shift gears to completely rewrite their Tesla Vision stack so they could continue to ship their volume cars without radar, and we should therefore hold changing events against anyone who speculated or shared information prior...

    Model S suspension type

    Smart Air Suspension was an option on early cars and then standard on later models (I think ~2018-2019). That was changed to Adaptive Suspension with the Raven update in mid-2019. Adaptive suspension still has the auto-ride-height, but adds in dynamic dampening (so now the air springs can...

    Some Minor Plaid Questions

    Well, since my Plaid+ order has been converted to a Plaid, and they appear to be honoring the earlier price, I'm now debating whether to go through with it or hold out for a possible future redesign. I don't really need to replace my Raven MS Performance, but a 152mph trap speed sounds pretty...

    Auto-updated firmaware without confirmation - confirmed!

    Not a shadow of doubt, but the only detail you've posted is that the alarm clock changed to an arrow? Did it actually apply an update or not?

    No more radar means the car cannot see through fog?

    You're mixed up. It was the reliance on radar that CAUSED those incidents, because radar doesn't do a good job of detecting fixed, stationary objects. The car doesn't expect stationary obstructions to simply block highways, so when the radar stops detecting fellow moving vehicles in front of...

    Gen 3 Wall Connector 3 red blinks fault code

    I've had the same experience (hardwired 14-50 wall connector to a Gen3 that overheated to a replacement Gen3) and I've been happy with their response as well. My replacement Gen3 did show a flashing red light the other day after a long charge in a very hot garage, but it had only stepped down to...

    2021.4.18

    Not only that, but they also are dealing with chip shortages and have explicitly said in the earnings call that they were able to be agile and find new providers of different components. They're probably writing drivers full time to deal with a hundred different combos of different chip...
