    Not sure if posted, Finland customer blows up Tesla over battery replacement cost.

    Anybody see how many miles the car had? All I've found is that it was a 2013 Model S that was out of warranty. How long was the battery warranty on the 2013 Model S?

    Interpreting the Energy -> Trip Screen

    6%. 26% predicted to 32% actual. I don't know what was different. Here's the data on the drive from TeslaFi.

    Interpreting the Energy -> Trip Screen

    We were navigating to a SuC. We arrived at 14%. On the outbound trip it predicted 26% and we arrived at 32%.

    Interpreting the Energy -> Trip Screen

    It was cold, and we didn't precondition as we weren't on a charger before departure. The first two miles of the trip were descending a steep mountain road. Could initially underperforming the estimate be due to running the heat and heated seats at the beginning of the trip and the unconditioned...

    Interpreting the Energy -> Trip Screen

    Let me try to clarify my question. Why do I have both lines (green and gray) on the graph in the FUTURE? I'm only 7 miles into the trip but the green/yellow line continues all the way to the end of the trip. Should it only be the gray prediction line in the future and both lines in the past...

    Interpreting the Energy -> Trip Screen

    I took the attached picture on my first road trip (M3LR). This was at the beginning of the return trip. The destination was a Supercharger. Why did I have a full green/yellow line in addition to the gray line? I thought the gray line was the prediction and the green line was my actual...

    Supercharger - Pigeon Forge, TN

    I charged once at this SuC on Wednesday afternoon, the day before Thanksgiving. There was a lot of activity at the SuC but I don't think it exceeded 50% capacity in the ~45 minutes we were there. Our charging session was 38 minutes as I was charging up to 90% to have running around power for...

    Supercharger Station Price Increases

    How are the per-minute SuCing rates prorated as your charging speed ramps up then back down again during a single session? Is it per minute? I've only SuCed twice but don't see any details as I'm using free referral-code miles. Once those are gone, is there a breakdown on the time at each...

    MASTER THREAD: Floor Mats

    Just back from a small Thanksgiving road trip with my Teslashield mats. Didn't once think about the mats because they didn't move, feet didn't catch edges, didn't show any flaws or gaps, etc. They did their job without creating any annoyances. (I had been catching my foot on the inside edge...

    Supercharger - Pigeon Forge, TN

    Thanks! We'll likely charge twice at this SC so will be able to try this and the Mellow Mushroom.

    Supercharger - Pigeon Forge, TN

    I didn't realize the the 'shroom was walkable from the Superchargers. Looks like just a 1/2 mile with sidewalks. That'll work perfectly. Thanks! That explains why I couldn't find it. Thanks!

    Supercharger - Pigeon Forge, TN

    Any recommendations for restaurants while charging at this location? I thought someone mentioned a pizza place earlier in the thread but can't find it on Google Maps. Anything else good within walking distance?

    Vendor TeslaShields update #10

    My Model 3 interior mats arrived today. Frunk/Trunk arrives a couple weeks ago. The label was printed last Friday and UPS first scanned it on Monday. The rear mat was wrapped around the two front mat, like a taco shell, which prevented the crease that some had complained about earlier. Order...

    Received my trunk and front mats today. Fit is perfect. Looking forward to receiving the floor mats soon.

    Picked up the car today. It looks fantastic. Very shiny. I'm looking forward to see how easily it cleans up once it gets dirty. Very happy with the service at Lux Auto in Hendersonville.

    Charging MPH Display?

    Thanks. I wouldn't have thought of that. I switched to % charge display as soon as I picked up the car as that seems more useful than the EPA range remaining.

    Charging MPH Display?

    How do you get the MPH display to show on the charging screen? Mine shows kW, Kwh, A, & V. No MPH.

    I'd think there's be good options for you in the Williamson Co. Far too long of a drive to go up to Hendersonville.

    PPF & Ceramic costs and products

    The prices I listed in post #15 were for full-front PPF. I'm paying an extra ~$600 to add the rocker panels (lower-sides between wheels) and behind the rear wheels. Full-car quotes ranged from just under $6,000 to $10,000. More than I wanted to pay. The prices for ceramic coating are for the...

    Ceramic Pro. Scroll up to post #15. I listed those details for all three shops, there.

    PPF & Ceramic costs and products

    I took delivery of my car today. I'm scheduled to drop it off on Monday for the PPF and Ceramic. I chose Lux Auto in Hendersonville. It was a difficult choice between them and the Madd Tinter. I spent a lot of time researching Xpel PPF vs. Ceramic Pro PPF but didn't find much. I concluded...

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    Picked up my car this afternoon in Nashville, TN. 51 days from order to delivery. Haven't found anything wrong with it yet. At pickup, the odometer read 3 miles. Delivery was originally scheduled for yesterday (9/14) but the car was schedule to arrive Monday (12) or Tuesday (13). It didn't...

    Nissan Leaf to M3 Transition Guy Needs Moral and Emotional Support and Advice on LR vs SP

    The way I look at the range difference is that, on a road trip, you want to keep your battery in the range where it charges the fastest to minimize the time you spend at the Supercharger. The LR has a range of 353 miles. You aren't going to drive 300+ miles between stops but that range allows...

    Side repeater camera view on screen

    Is it possible to view the forward-facing B-Pillar cameras on the car's screen?

    PPF & Ceramic costs and products

    I don't know, but I'll ask. Auto Armor is less than two miles from me so I plan to go by and ask why they're so much more expensive. Also planning to visit the Madd Tinter.

    PPF & Ceramic costs and products

    Me neither. I've found another place, The Madd Tinter in Gallatin, which is a lot less and has quality reviews. I'm going to go up and talk to them soon.

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    Got the text this morning to schedule delivery. EDD was Sept 6-12. Available delivery appointments were Sept 14-16. Quite a bit better than the "November" estimate when I ordered.

    Before I screw up my Model 3 in the car wash...

    Did anyone answer the question about why you'd turn off the AC before going through the car wash? If so, I missed the answer.

    Thanks. I've sent some requests for information to a couple of others XPEL dealers in the area.

    Master Thread: Definitive 14-50 NEMA Outlet Guide

    I will have a 14-50 receptacle installed before my car is delivered. Can anyone give me some guidance on how high the receptacle should be placed? I'll have the receptacle on top, mobile connector below, and the cable organizer, to hold the coiled charging cord, on the bottom. How far above...

    What is the texture like on the TShields? Is it soft like rubber, hard like plastic, or somewhere in between?

    PPF & Ceramic costs and products

    I have been reading about PPF and ceramic coatings but haven't decided if it'll be worthwhile for me. There's a business near me that I used to remove badly-applied window tint on a used Mazda I bought a number of years ago and I was impressed with their operation. I asked for quotes on...

    I see a lot of mentions of "My SA". When are you assigned an SA and how do you find out about it?

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    One day right for me as well. Same range. Still much sooner than the estimate of "November" when I ordered.

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    Ordered 26 Jul. Today my original EDD of "November" has changed to August 29 - September 18. That's quite a change! Not sure I believe it.

    Which NEMA Adapters to carry?

    I'm thinking I might go with carrying the included J1772 and 5-15 plus a 5-20, 14-50, and TT30. That's less expensive than the $220 bundle, adds the TT30 option, and gives a good amount of flexibility. In practice, I'll probably rarely use any of it! :)
  46. Larry in TN

    Which NEMA Adapters to carry?

    This is certainly starting to make a lot more sense to me now. The TT-30 option makes a lot of sense as RV parks might be found in areas that aren't close to SuperChargers. Thanks, everyone!
  47. Larry in TN

    Which NEMA Adapters to carry?

    Thank you, Frank. That was very helpful!
  48. Larry in TN

    Which NEMA Adapters to carry?

    Thanks! I was unaware of the TT-30. I also didn't know that the 14-50 was often available at the parks. That sounds useful as, I'd imagine, parks might be some distance from SuperChargers. I think the J1772 is included with the car. Is that correct?
  49. Larry in TN

    Which NEMA Adapters to carry?

    I get that. My first inclination was to order the bundle but I can't imagine where I'd find most of the receptacles matching those adapters. I think the 14-50 is worth the cost. Didn't know if there might be another one or two that can be frequently found out in public.
  50. Larry in TN

    Which NEMA Adapters to carry?

    I see myself doing almost all of my charging in my garage with the Mobile Connector and 14-50 adapter. When I venture farther from home, almost all of my charging will likely be at SuperChargers. The NEMA adapters are relatively inexpensive, though, so I wouldn't mind having a few with me...
