    Moderator note: Thread title updated to reflect actual equipment seen. So, as I was leaving Long Beach Grand Prix today, I saw a whole bunch of Tesla power equipment on the side of a parking structure. But nothing on the map for a supercharger. And nothing on supercharge.info about a future...

    Reset TPMS

    So, I have my wife's 2020 Model X, with v2020.48.26 I also have my 2018 Model S, with v2020.48.12.1 My Model S has a "reset TMPS" option. My wife's Model X does not have that option. Am I missing it because of the software update? Or was it never there because it's a newer/different car? Thanks.

    Moving TPMS from one car too another?

    I have a spare set of wheels for my Model S that came with TPMS. I want to move the TPMS over to a set of snow tires/wheels that I'm putting on my wife's Model X. Do the TPMS need to be programmed, or do they just work?

    How to get FSD?

    I bought my car 2 years ago. I paid for EAP ($5k) and FSD ($3k) After I bought my car, Elon said (March 2019) anyone who paid for the $5k EAP would be given FSD for free. He said that anyone who paid for the $3K FSD would be enrolled in the Early Access Program (EAP). So, where's my FSD beta?

    Dumb question about wheels & TPMS

    So, I currently have stock 19" silver slipstream wheels. I much prefer the ride on 19" wheels vs 21" wheels/tires. I am in the market for some new wheels, probably just the Gray/Carbon Tesla wheels. Question. If I find some Tesla wheels that come with TPMS do I just install them and they all...

    Anyone else feel unsafe using NOA on HOV lanes?

    I hate how the AutoSteer hugs the left side of the HOV lane. Especially when there is a concrete barrier two feet to my left. Even worse when there is a road sign, and all of a sudden the concrete barrier is only 1 foot away. If I look out of the rear camera, it is easy to see that the car is...

    AutoPilot slams on the brakes in car pool lane every day.

    I have an issue with EAP driving in the HOV lane ever day. On the 118 freeway, westbound, in the HOV lane at ~75mph, as I pass DeSoto and approach Topanga, it suddenly slows down the car as if I were on an offramp. It is REALLY scary - especially if I have other cars behind me. I now cover the...
