    New Tesla APP 4.x. Released for iOS and Android

    I got the new app on my iphone a few days ago. Generally it seems fine except for one major problem - Seat heaters. In the old app i could turn these on remotely to warm up seats before getting into a cold car. Now, when i touch the seat icon the seat warming comes on BUT so does the main...

    Politics - Quarantine Thread

    I can not in good conscience buy anything made in Texas. If you dont agree with me, do a little research on the legislation passed to suppress the right to vote (especially minorities and democrats). Includes various intimidation practices. Makes it a crime to give cups of water to voters...

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    This is just a tweet. we dont have any more info. and this guy is just one customer. Pretty much a non-story that Teslarati is trying to pump up the way CNBS pumps up any possibly negative story about Tesla. I happen to live near David and know people who know him. He is really up in...

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    Sorry to ask a basic question that has probably been answered 10 times in this thread already. I tried the search function to look for an answer, but no luck. The question is: Is the Long Range the same width as the Plaid at the rear wheels? I seem to remember that they are the same...

    Specific Interior dimensions of 2021 Model S Long Ranger or Plaid (with a tape measure)

    ColoDave - I believe you are not getting any responses because of where you posted this. Over on the "Model S Delivery Update" thread tons of folks hang out and a new post every 20 seconds. and folks have helped others with these kind of tech specs since many in the group have taken delivery...

    Creep Mode

    I am no expert on this. I am still waiting for delivery on my long range Model S. But, my recent notes indicate that i read in one or two places on this forum that the refreshed Model S does not have the creep function. I'll miss it, but i think i can adjust. On the other hand, maybe if...

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    Thanks for your detailed explanations about detailing! Glad that mudflaps are up next. I plan to install them when I take delivery (December???) , but hesitated to mention them in this forum as it would be considered 'heresy' by many on such a beautiful vehicle!

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    I am thinking that Tesla must have instituted some new software that updates the EDD in our accounts quite often, and by small amounts. My LR Red/Cream/19 order said October for a long time. Then this week it went from: November 26 - December 26 on Tuesday to December 04 - January 03 on...

    Please keep in mind that Rupert Murdoch (Fox News, etc) bought WSJ in 2007. Ever since then the articles on EVs have been somewhat distorted, in support of legacy and oil companies, needless to say. How do to i know this? I kept my WSJ subscription just so i could check up on them and...

    Thanks a bunch Omar! I really appreciate your efforts! And I like 54" better than 50.5"! Can I assume your suspension was set to Normal Height (not Low or High) and that you have 21" wheels? I ordered 19s and suspect the car is slightly lower with 19s but not by much since the tires are...

    Here is an example of the photo angle I am requesting. I took a photo of my M3 today that shows entire door opening, with driver door wide open. I put some blue tape on the black stuff above drivers head in front of B pillar. That point is 50.5 inches above ground. That is from the ground...

    Have either of you also tried Carvana or Vroom or some other such service? IF yes, were their offers any good? I have a trade in quote form Tesla, but whenever i get a reasonably firm delivery date on my new MS I will also get a quote from Vroom and Carvana. Vroom gave a good high price...

    Thanks a bunch! I am the guy who asked for the 'door' photos. But, i see i was not clear in my question. What i meant to ask for was a photo from OUTSIDE the car at approximately driver head level. And, would be good if the photo showed the bottom of the opening for the door and the entire...

    I traded in my Model S for a Prius Prime

    Thanks for your post. Sure, different strokes for different folks. I have been driving Teslas since 2014. I recall some kind of informal survey on the Tesla forum in 2014 or 2015. The question was "What car did you used to drive?" AND the single most common response was "Prius"! So...

    Model S Refresh Delivery Dates

    HI All: I am not currently waiting for delivery on a refreshed MS or MX, but i have a bit of experience with Teslas having bought my first MS in 2014. IMHO Customer Communications is the achilles heel of Tesla, and it has only gotten worse over the years. I think it has reached a new low...

    Sorry to hear you dont have a solution to this strange problem yet. Wish i had a useful suggestion. I have owned a series of Teslas since 2014 and have been on the forums since then and i dont recall ever hearing about such a strange problem. IF i had it i would camp out at the service...

    Blue Paint, Model Y

    Took delivery of my MY end of January 2021. Took a short road trip a few days later and was surprised how dirty the rear doors had become. Checked a few threads on this forum, and it was clear that quickest cheapest way to help protect those doors was to install front mud flaps. So, I...

    I have been driving Tesla as my main car since 2014. For my second car i have had Nissan Leaf, Kia Soul EV and Kia Niro EV, and have experienced some frustration with non-Tesla Chargers. I understand the Mach E has some kind of software called "Ford Pass" or something like that that enables...

    Model Y Price Increase (Mar 10)

    OK - thanks for that text. I found it. those totals are the totals of eight different tests for each vehicle. So, I can see how you might conclude that is close to total battery capacity. It may be. but, the way the test cycles are set up they are just testing a different kind of driving...

    FSD Beta testing open to all with next update?

    I like the idea of the subscription service being available in the next few weeks! Would be very interesting to try FSD Beta. But, IF the subscription has a minimum length of 12 months and is $300+ a month, then i am not so interested. If we were allowed to subscribe for just three months...

    Model Y Price Increase (Mar 10)

    OK. I see your logic. that whatever gets introduced to the performance version will likely be added to the long range version later. makes sense. Well, i tried to find 'charge to depletion' but the search function said that 'depletion' didnt exist in the document! Oh well, no big deal...

    Model Y Price Increase (Mar 10)

    Thanks for posting that link. To be clear, are you saying that this somehow relates to the size of the battery for LR MY being produce now, as compared to LR MY sometime last year? As i understand it, this document doesnt address that question. This 49 page technical document reports only...

    Model Y Price Increase (Mar 10)

    Yes, maybe jcanoe is referring to those software update you mention, but i think jacanoe is really talking about an increase in kwh of the battery itself. This morning i googled about increased battery size in MY and could only find this 'rumor' report from Torque news: but now i have dug a...

    Glad you made it home! I sure would have done the Scranton Supercharger instead. In the EV world most people call that 'miles left' indicator the GOM. Which stands for "Guess-O-Meter". And especially when driving on freeway with 27 degree temps, the GOM can be way off. And, I certainly...

    Took delivery of Model Y

    If i am seeing your photo clearly, it looks like the edge of the door is missing paint for about 2/3 inch. Perhaps the door was opened by someone and hit a wall. This is the kind of thing easily fixed with touch up paint. I have done so on a couple of my Teslas over the years. If i were...

    Took delivery of Model Y

    I'm no expert on accessories. But, it seems that a Center Console Kit to cover up the glossy stuff is real popular. But, I suspect you dont have the glossy one. From your description it sounds like your console is the new non-glossy type. By they way, on mudflaps i am only talking about...

    Took delivery of Model Y

    As for mudflaps. I concur that most folks will want to install them. I have reviewed various threads and youtube videos on this. Essentially the MY front tire sticks out more than other Teslas, and so it tends to throw stuff up on the lower part of the doors. I learned this the hard way by...

    Congrats and Enjoy! I took delivery four weeks ago. The next day i noticed what i thought was a five inch scratch on the hood. But close inspection with a magnifier showed it was some kind of substance (glue?) on the paint. So, i was able to wash it off with regular car wash soap and...

    Test drove the Model Y, Model 3 and the Mach E back to back to back, yesterday

    AlamoX - thanks for the test drive info. Although i suspect there is, or will be, a faster version of the Mach E for sale. I think there are four different trim levels. I've got a dual drive M3 and a standard range RWD MY. both seem plenty fast, but of course the M3 being lower and dual...

    New Inventory Unit Purchase Timeline

    First, i want to remind you that you can still order a new one 'off menu'. the best way to do this is to visit a local Tesla Showroom and speak in person with a Tesla rep. This may make it easier to specify your preferred delivery date. I ordered SR MY online in early January, and they...

    Model Y SR gone from options and LR dropped 1K?

    I understand what you mean. With the Standard Range MY gone, there isnt any Tesla comparable to the basic model of the Mach E or the ID4. BUT, Tesla's goal is to sell every EV they make. They cant make an EV in every segment. For instance, they have nothing to compete with the current...

    Breaking into a Model Y

    That is puzzling! What i will add is that i have learned the keycard is very touchy as to exactly where you touch it on the pillar. If you are 1 inch too high or 1 inch too low it simply doesnt work.

    Model Y Standard range ordered, should I keep the order?

    Gee, I am not sure why you would want to cancel. You are still getting the same car you ordered. If you wanted it when you ordered, why wouldnt you still want it now? I picked up my MY SR 3 weeks ago and am quite happy with it, even tho i didnt get the latest (lower) price.

    Considering Home Delivery?

    Sorry to hear about the lack of communications from Tesla. I have been a happy Tesla owner for over 6 years, but must admit customer communications has always been their weakness. I took home delivery 3 weeks ago in San Rafael (6 miles north of Corte Madera). It went smoothly for me. No...

    OK Thanks. I see it does make it seem that a heat pump problem is fairly common. While i may have seen a thread or two about this problem for one or two folks, this article does make it seem more widespread.

    SR price reduction

    I took delivery three weeks ago for the 2k higher price. BUT, I am not complaining. I have owned Teslas for years and realize they are constantly adding new features and moving prices up or down. I figure i got the car with certain attributes for the price i was willing to pay. If things...

    What 'heating issues' are you talking about? Please explain. I am not award of any such issues. I took delivery three weeks ago.
