    TuneIn subscription - still getting ads?

    I've had a TuneIn subscription since I got my 2018 Model 3 AWD. Unfortunately I get ads like I haven't paid for it. Do others have a subscription and do you get ads? Is this a Tesla limitation? Thanks!

    TMC investors poll

    Oftentimes in the Roundtable thread, people coyly suggest how many shares they own, or at least how many they recently purchased ("Just picked up 50 more chairs on the dip!!"). Others give opinions evidently based on years of investing experience. I'm always curious about the experience behind...

    Proportion of retail stock by nationality?

    I'm not sure if this has been asked, but is it possible to know the proportion of TSLA retail stock ownership by nationality? In particulier, what proportion of recent US stock owners may need to cash out to pay large tax bills? How significant will this forced sell-off be?

    Wards 10 best car infotainment systems / UX - would you believe..?

    Wards just named its 10 best car infotainment systems I don't know what to make of this. Did they just not ask Tesla to submit? Did Tesla decline to submit? Is the judging panel 80-year-old Luddittes?? (Okay cheap shot at 80-year-olds - I know there's many of you who are tech-smart). I mean...

    POLL: When will Tesla pass VW to become the 2nd most valuable auto manufacturer?

    I've been blown away by the rapid rise in Tesla's market capitalization since June 1, 2018, especially in comparison to the other global auto manufacturers. I have posted regular updates in this forum. As of today Jan 7th, Tesla (TSLA) is worth $84.7 B. VW (VOW), the second most valuable auto...

    3 country, 7,800 mile road trip in 15 days - SAFELY. Range anxiety, oh no! (yawn)

    (©2019 photos are copyright) I recently completed a 7,800 mile (12,500 KM) road trip from Eastern Canada, to Mexico, up to California, and home to Ottawa, ON. I haven't heard of many trips like that so thought I'd post - enjoy! I didn't record a blog for this trip, so I'll just add some notes...

    Auto manufacturers market cap - who's climbing? who's sinking?

    In celebration of the Q3 surge to $TSLA, I've updated my chart of market capitalization of all the major auto manufacturers. Tesla ($58.3B) is back up to fourth most valuable auto manufacturer in the world. They just re-passed GM, Honda and BMW. Over the last 3 years, Tesla's market cap has...

    Final thoughts - what I'm thinking on the train to pick up my 3

    (First off, regrets to all those who still haven't heard from Tesla - I hope ur car comes soon!) My waiting comes to an end tomorrow morning. And a new journey begins. As I take a peaceful train ride from Ottawa to the Tesla pickup centre in Toronto, the following are on my mind: What is the...

    'The reports of Tesla's death are greatly exaggerated'

    The reports of Tesla’s death are greatly exaggerated You tell it like it is, Fred! "...But I was greatly under-estimating the power of word of mouth. I’ve sold or generated great interest in buying the Model 3 for at least 5 different people since I’ve taken delivery of my Model 3 Performance...

    Want to know if your M3 is in production yet? Without phoning Tesla?

    So I'm not sure if this is widely publicized yet - excuse me if so - but I think I've found out how you can check yourself if your car is in production yet (and has a VIN, and has a Delivery date). I believe, buried in your account page, is the field indicating if your car is in production yet...

    Tesla - Dead for 10 years (CleanTechnica)

    Tesla - Dead for 10 years Great perspective, @ZachShahan - thanks. Shame they're dying now (again) so CleanTechnica will have no Tesla stories to post any more! Soon. Real soon. Honest. For reals this time.

    AWD = referral program?

    I ordered an AWD on June 28th and notice today I have a referral code. I thought it was news this was opened to Performance. Now AWD too?

    THE. MOST. VALUABLE. AUTO. COMPANY. IN (most of). THE. WORLD.

    Yowser. Bears - please excuse the pun - repeating from my post in the investor roundtable. Excluding a couple of Chinese and Indian conglomerates, today Tesla became the most valuable automotive company in (most of) the world - more valuable than GM, Ford, Fiat/Chrysler, even more than BMW and...

    Poll: When will Tesla open up M3 orders to Europe?

    Great Q2 earnings call. The report says "...Average selling price will remain high for several quarters as we expect a richer mix in the initial wave of Model 3 deliveries to Europe and APAC." I think this is a wiser initiative than immediately jumping into more debt ramping up Model Y, Semi...

    Q2 earnings call discussion

    I'm on the Q2 earnings call now, and there are lots of interesting nuggets. For example, the top 5 non-Tesla trade-ins to buy a Model 3 are: Toyota Prius BMW 3 series Honda Accord Honda Civic Nissan Leaf What interested Elon the most about this is that these are mostly trade-ups, i.e. people...

    Please add your info to sheet tracking AWD orders (cool summaries!)

    On the Tesla forum, someone started a spreadsheet to track AWD orders. Feel free to add your order if you're interested. I've added a Summary tab with a couple of charts, e.g.: I was curious about where AWD orders were from - northern and mountainous regions? So I added a chart for location...

    Supercharger map not working?

    [Edit - solved. Seems pop-up blocker was interfering.] Is it just me, or are others having an issue finding SuperCharger locations at Tesla Findus? The interface seems to have changed, with the four options at bottom no longer popping up.

    AWDs on the way to Canada?!?

    I just got my call from Tesla! It's finally feeling real!! (OK, ordering a specific config was half real too ;) I've ordered a red AWD, LR, EAP, 18" wheels - see below. I spoke with Rachel just now calling from the Toronto Lawrence store to confirm my details. No VIN yet, but she suggested I...

    POLL: Future of Ontario EHVIP Rebate?

    So much speculation! You can assume that Doug Ford's government will execute a change to the EHVIP with the same process and "grandfathering" provision as with past MTO updates, but nothing is for sure. Just for fun, what do you think the future holds?

    Invitations opened up! I got mine this morning (reserved January 16th 2018)!

    You might want to check today. I figured I was about 400,000th in line, and they've only manufactured ~38,000 cars so far.

    What does your configuration cost?

    I updated the 'International Tesla Cost Estimator' I created to accommodate the new Performance prices - for those with access to the official Tesla Configurator, please let me know if you notice any errors or omissions. For those still waiting for an invite, feel free to use!

    International Tesla Cost Estimator - UPDATED for AWD & Perf.

    I updated the Tesla calculator I posted to include Elon's new pricing for the Model 3 AWD and Performance. I think it´s working right - please let me know if you find any issues (the conditional formatting isn´t 100%, but the numbers should be good).

    Production rate reveal... and a new announcement?

    Let's be honest. Lover or hater, the missed production numbers are not an encouraging sign. We're all waiting with baited breath for the Q1 M3 production figure. How close - or how far - will it be from the promised 2,500 / week? And you can't ignore paying the bills forever, no matter how...

    Canadian invites coming!

    I predict that once we get past this Q1 deadline and Tesla announces mediocre production numbers that miss their targets (1,500 / week?), they'll begin shipping to Canada to limit the US volume so as to extend the rebate for US buyers while pumping out cars and adding much-needed operational...

    Tesla bought out: saviour or curse?

    It's debatable how close to bankruptcy Tesla is - don't start, we'll never agree! - but assuming it was: What would you think if Tesla got bought out to ensure it's continued existence? Would it matter who bought them for you to still buy a Model 3? If only Daimler, Alibaba or Petro China would...

    Poll: What is most important to you in owning a Tesla?

    Poll: What is most important to you in owning (or wanting to own) a Tesla?

    I'm fascinated by the Tesla equation - would their cars be as coveted if they were mediocre performers? It's not just about climate change - Tesla hit on so many angles. I'd like to know what about Tesla is most important to you owning one (or wanting to own one). (Anyone know how to conduct a...

    Tesla (Model S & X) no longer eligible for Ontario rebate?

    I was checking Ontario's Incentives and Eligible Vehicles page and I swear I used to see the Tesla S and X on this page (a search for "Tesla" even points to this page). It looks like they changed the policy today (March 9). Neither model is there now. Is this policy new which might have...

    What colour will Tesla add in year 2/3 to boost sales?

    Since many of us are frustrated and whiney about not getting their Model 3 yet and before the US rebate threshold is reached (don't blame Tesla about the fed and state govs' limited incentives for green energy), let's speculate about something safe! Which colour ("color" in 'murikin) do you...
