    '18 X100D - HV battery replacement

    No the new charging curve is like that, the gradual drop to 100kW at 66% is history. It was probably changed because the plaid has to look just a bit better. The fan is not running with newer packs as they just work better and don't hear up that badly.

    2018 Model X 75D battery deg

    I guess trading it to a different one would probably be the cheapest option :-/. Someone only hauling kids around town will still be happy with yours.

    Raven Performance in Europe - only hits 140 kW for few minutes, 92 kW for the rest

    Ah, I had one of those before. 40kWh in 28 minutes or so and then it dries up pretty bad. Funny that the btx5 works much better in the X than in the S.

    Raven Performance in Europe - only hits 140 kW for few minutes, 92 kW for the rest

    31kWh in 20min? I did 70kWh in 40min, as seen above.

    Raven Performance in Europe - only hits 140 kW for few minutes, 92 kW for the rest

    Yeah. Section between 33-50% is still slower, otherwise it's as good as it was. 4kW drop from the max speeds yesterday can easily by explained by the winter as some energy goes to the heating.

    Raven Performance in Europe - only hits 140 kW for few minutes, 92 kW for the rest

    I stand corrected, my X is still good. I just did a long drive in freezing temps and it behaved good, charging 71kWh in 41mins, averaging over 100kW. [email protected]%, [email protected]%, [email protected]%. For freezing temps this is quite good.

    v11 software update SUCKS

    BTW my *most used* button on the touch screen is the defogger in both of our cars (LRX, LR3). While the car normally doesn't fog up when starting to drive long distance and its properly preheated in advance, it always fogs up pretty fast when doing stop-and-go when it's freezing out. Quite often...

    v11 software update SUCKS

    Ioniq 5 and the sibling EV6 are a no-go here in the north due to the issues with heating and battery thermal management during the winter. A very old Tesla travels faster than that during the winter months. Mercedes, once again, shines here. It's the only car that seems to pass the 'navigation...

    v11 software update SUCKS

    I don't think they will, they prioritize the production efficiency for the next 10 years or so and that comes with issues. I don't blame them for this, the planet needs it. Tesla is the only vendor that can ship A LOT OF EVs. Reason why I'm looking at the MB is not directly v11 related, but...

    v11 software update SUCKS

    I honestly think EQS/EQE have better or equal range than the '400mi epa' MS in real life. Tesla is just very good in gaming the EPA numbers to look shiny. While the WLTP is in general more optimistic for most cars and gives higher readings, it's better for comparisons as it doesn't allow anyone...

    v11 software update SUCKS

    I have a Mercedes EQE reservation done as a backup if they don't revert this crap by then. Audi's look way too much like 'transformers' toys to me but Mercedes EQE + AWD + Hyperscreen is clean looking and efficient enough to qualify.

    v11 software update SUCKS

    I’m just fully unable to use that slider. The only way i manage is accidentally when attempting to pause or something. Unbelievable how moronic. Same with the tiny defog/defrost/temp popup. I don’t know how to bring it up just to defog without going back and forth with the temp setting. Just...

    Extremely Disappointed With Model S Range When Driving on the Highway at 35F

    Those are mostly cost savings and manufacturing improvements. Good stuff but not really very relevant for the end user.

    Extremely Disappointed With Model S Range When Driving on the Highway at 35F

    Teslas EPA numbers are a joke. I’d be really surprised if the ’400mi epa’ model S ever went further than the ’350mi epa’ mercedes eqs. EPA numbers are open for gamlng.

    v11 software update SUCKS

    Entirely agree, amazing how much worse it is. I have to also say that I have never, ever, seen worse media player and I have been using these since they became a thing mid 90s. Just a simple thing like choosing the next podcast ( << >> ) is a hilarious button dance. It never remembers where it...

    v11 software update SUCKS

    Yeah and just about any mobile phone runs the browser much better than the MCU2. The real issue is that what you see running in Teslas is the open source chromium. It's not very well optimized and the code maintenance from Teslas side is near zero. It takes much more than just rebuilding effort...

    Raven Performance in Europe - only hits 140 kW for few minutes, 92 kW for the rest

    They have seen similar use and have probably been charged even more than the Teslas due to lower range, at higher rate. All of them are still going as well as the new ones, don't buy the tesla superfan fud. There are things where Tesla just does poorly and this constant BMS adjustment is one of...

    Raven Performance in Europe - only hits 140 kW for few minutes, 92 kW for the rest

    Heh. Their best intention is to sell you a car and advertise it can charge at 250kW, like it was said about my X. Then they deliver it for 3 months in the US and take it away and never deliver anything in the EU. All 3 of my friends that bought Xs thought they are buying a car that can charge at...

    Raven Performance in Europe - only hits 140 kW for few minutes, 92 kW for the rest

    I think that they indeed crippled the speed compared to last summer, now it holds 142kW only up to 33%, compared to 43% last summer. 67% used to be the 100kW point and now that hits after 50%. 70% is at 70kW and this is already almost the same it was and everything after it as well.

    v11 software update SUCKS

    Slightly off-topic, but there is currently no way to get rid of Elon unless he decides to go himself as he is still by far the largest Tesla shareholder. It's pretty likely that hes not going anywhere as he also considers himself to be invaluable, almost semi-god like person who no-one can...

    v11 software update SUCKS

    He used to be, now he just doesn't care as the money is not an issue anymore. He has muted effectively everyone from twitter that does not do full-time FSD or stock price praising. Real and honest feedback doesn't seem to be of interest. I'm not at all sure he even cares about the products at...

    Raven Performance in Europe - only hits 140 kW for few minutes, 92 kW for the rest

    For E pack that graph looks about right. G and F used to get 142kW (chargers point of view) up to 45% and gradually drop to 100kW at 66%. Looks to me G and F have been downgraded to that same curve after the plaid was released. That said, your pack was too cold to hit proper speeds in the...

    Malfunction.. or Teslas limitation of which service points know nothing about and claim ’everything looks normal’.

    Raven Performance in Europe - only hits 140 kW for few minutes, 92 kW for the rest

    I am, because of the kids. It’s impossible to get them back in the car in less than 45 minutes and this means that the car is at 85% or more..
  25. J

    Raven Performance in Europe - only hits 140 kW for few minutes, 92 kW for the rest

    I have both, LR3 and LRX(G pack). Still last summer the X was faster than the 3 to charge if you had to charge over 85%. At 80% it’s pretty even and below that the 3 is a lot better. Not sure now though, feels like they capped the ’legacy’ cars.

    I wonder how many of the people unhappy about V11 are really trolls

    The main issue with v11 is the winter experience, it really became much worse. During the winter you need the seat heating, defogging, defrosting etc all the time and sometimes really urgently when you can’t take your eyes off the road. Accessing these controls is now WAY slower and takes your...

    Pre-refresh S / X now officially known as “Legacy” in terms of software

    I honestly don’t understand why people care about these gimmicky features. I’d just like to get my excellent v10 UI back, I deeply hate this winter experience now. This update makes me spend much more time looking at the screen instead of the road. Adjusting seat heaters, defog, defrost etc all...

    It’s a real bummer tesla sells you one thing and then swaps it to something else. Madness.

    Raven Performance in Europe - only hits 140 kW for few minutes, 92 kW for the rest

    It’s winter here and really chilly. It hasn’t been as good as during the summer, but I can’t fully exclude the cold weather as the cause. While it starts charging nicely at 142kW, it ramps down earlier than it used to and drops below 100kW at 50% or so. During the summer it maintained speeds...

    Raven Performance in Europe - only hits 140 kW for few minutes, 92 kW for the rest

    Amazing but quite likely. I suppose this teaches me not to trust tesla anymore - I somehow can’t believe european manufacturers would be so keen on breaking customers cars. Going with the mercedes e-class or the 370mi audi e-tron next.

    2020 Model X Performance Range

    Well duh. Plaid has lower range than the older models.

    Poll on V11 interface

    Poor poll options. Organization is fine, graphics are fine, but it the whole thing has few very bad bugs. Window defroster is a critical safety feature just like the wipers are. You may need it really, really fast when you really can't go surfing the menus.

    winter features that urgently need fixing

    I just had a seriously scary moment with this lovely v11. It started raining at -4c which means that the windscreen freezes solid in seconds. This was on a dark, winding road and I had to start finding the window defroster tiny button from some pop-up dialog while trying to keep the car on the...

    winter features that urgently need fixing

    Reverting to the regular cruise is done by basically every other car so I’d assume Tesla can do if too, safely. Some have a menu setting for this, some do it silently. It’s very, very common for the sensors to get so dirty/icy that the adaptive cruise doesn’t really work. So the ‘level 5’ is...

    winter features that urgently need fixing

    Most of those are not v11 specific and have been there since the beginning. Pretty basic stuff and far, far more important than those regular ‘cold weather improvements’ that just keep changing things back and forth and you can never tell how it’s going to work this time.

    Cabin noise refreshed 2021 Model S

    I managed to mostly fix my 10/2020 LR++. Local rust/soundproofing company (finikor) did the job, measurable -3dB difference. When the summer comes i’ll also ditch the stock tires, they are REALLY crappy in this sense.

    How effective is active noise cancelling in a car?

    My 10/2020 XLR++ was made pretty tolerable by a local rust/soundproofing company by applying some heavy foam inside the wheel arches/some other spots in there + trunk + adding extra door sealing + heavy trunk/frunk mats. I can finally live with this now.

    winter features that urgently need fixing

    Things seem to be slowly getting worse for us living in the harder climates. Since there is no way to give feedback to Tesla anymore, I'm hopeful someone there could read this post and potentially drive things forward. I have both the 3LR and the XLR and the same issues are present in both. 1)...

    '18 X100D - HV battery replacement

    On a positive note: it probably means they are out of used/refurbished packs and you'll get a new one.

    Anyone else sick of "service"?

    Yes. Loosing the humbleness and not listening to the customers is usually the beginning of the end. Elon stopped listening to the real customers long ago, now he only listens to the superfans that never say one bad word about anything regardless of how bad things are. PR was killed, all...

    Pre-refresh S / X now officially known as “Legacy” in terms of software

    The car development model is still very, very agile and it hasn't changed much either. We just polled several hundred cars at our local tesla owners club here and turns out that the Octovalve has left over 30% of the 3/Ys ever delivered stranded as the car cannot be driven without heat in the...

    Pre-refresh S / X now officially known as “Legacy” in terms of software

    Model 3/Y have the same CPU(s) so all that is pure nonsense anyway. They are just more mass market so they get the updates. Mental note: stick to the lower cost, higher volume Teslas if you wish to remain as a good customer.
  45. J

    2021 Holiday Update - GARBAGE!

    The ’legacy’ wording was indeed interesting. A 6mo old car can already be ’legacy’. Anyway, only the blind spot camera would have been interesting update for me, everything else was more or less pointless and the usability got far worse in terms of winter use. Even the driver profile setting is...

    MCU2 - TuneIn Radio - is it really that slow and buggy?

    Let me repeat. MCU1 to MCU2 upgrade is possible, but the MCU2 sw is also becoming abandonware like the MCU1. Critical bugs go years without being addressed. HW2.5 upgrade to HW3 in the EU is only possible if you paid for the FSD. Otherwise you are stuck with the abandoned hw2.5: no working...

    MCU2 - TuneIn Radio - is it really that slow and buggy?

    Tunein and netflix are so buggy it’s unreal. Crashes and random behavior all around. Overall i’m pretty badly disappointed by the teslas software quality. They never got the mcu1 to work right. Mcu2 is getting abandoned as we speak. Hw2.5 is is abandonware and people with the mcu2.5 cars will...

    2021 / 2022 Range

    Show me proof instead of repeating it. Screenshot or something above 100kW after 67%, 142kW at 46% or 78kW at 80%. These numbers are from my car. Even if it would do few minutes at 250kW in the US and the rest of the curve is the same or worse, i’m not impressed. That said, this car was also...

    2021 / 2022 Range

    Show me one that is faster and i believe it. This one goes below 100kW at 67% (see the screenshot) and reaches 80% and 90% exactly like the plaid ones i’ve seen. Here in the EU ccs adapter limits the max power at 143kW until 50% so i can’t comment on the peak powers. They are not real here.
