    Tesla Software updates - Australia

    Vision is now better in the new cars (better camera's) as well as they have a much faster CPU....so our older Model 3's will never be able to do FSD with current hardware. So the argument goes your pay the $'s for the FSD software and Tesla will upgrade your hardware, but here is the...

    Tesla Software updates - Australia

    It's very typical Tesla, yes those with June 2022+ cars will get the better verson and yes those that paid for the hardware will get the better version...but all those on standard AP will get the crappy version that will always be crappy because Tesla will claim our hardware is not up to the...

    Enhanced autopilot (EAP) is upgrade to FSD

    On top of all that EAP is crazy in that it is always trying to go back in to the left lane even when one can clearly see in 50m it will want to pull back out again etc. So it is back and forth zig zagging all over the place and basically pissing everyone off in the car....we ALWAYS just disable...

    Poster was using same SC as myself so assumed he/she is local....hence my advice.

    Model X - 12volt battery died

    Don’t let them tow your car, they have no guarantee that your car will be under cover or indeed even in a secure location (this is what they told me when I asked specific questions). Secondly, Tesla will send out a mobile service chap when they have a battery for you… Update: my local SC is...

    Model X - 12volt battery died

    Tesla replaced with the same Korean made lead acid battery that had failed….since it costs nothing we just put up with it…wasn’t happy about waiting 10 days when this sort of part should be kept in stock. Parts blamed the lack of battery stock on the lock down in Shanghai, even the though the...

    Model X - 12volt battery died

    Yes, replaced…took 10 days to get the new battery in and Tesla Mobile Service replaced it all in about 30mins. If the battery had taken any longer to get in Tesla had managed to allocate my wife a Model 3 to drive around.

    Enhanced autopilot (EAP) is upgrade to FSD

    I do a fair bit of highway driving and our Model X has FSD (so operating at EAP I guess) and our Model 3 has standard AP. - Summon is a crap - Smart Summon, does that even work? - Auto park, nearly never shows as available - NAV on autopilot is annoying - Lane change great I wouldn’t and won’t...

    Model S second hand market

    My boss (sorry I mean my wife) will give up her late 2018 Model X for a 2023 Model X Plaid....she's feeling generous ;)
  12. EcoCloudIT

    Model S second hand market

    Agreed, we have a 3 and X (3 replaced an S previously) and without a doubt the S/X (even older models) are vastly superior to the 3 (especially gen2 seats in the S/X vs 3/Y seats, air suspension etc.)…

    Tesla Software updates - Australia

    From the linked article: "According to Tesla, Model 3 and Model Y vehicles built from June 2022 onwards bound for the Australian and New Zealand markets will have its camera-based Autopilot system." So us loyal customers that have what "was" the required hardware to run FSD (Model X with FSD...

    Tesla Model Y in Australia

    Agreed, all good reasons...but on point three...if you get a new Y and someone buys your second hand 3 (that couldn't otherwise foot out for a new one) we double the EVs on the road quicker ;) Of course, only issue is the 3 second hand is just as expensive as new...hahaha...

    You're kidding right? I have a Model 3 Performance that I have lowered 380mm more and have zero issues and it is a lot closer to the ground than a Performance Y.....

    Great service!

    Good to hear good stories...we do need some more...

    Model X - 12volt battery died

    Model S - had it just share of 5 years....12-volt never had an issue Model 3 - coming on 2.5 years, no warning or reported issue as of yet Model X - 4 months until it's 4 years old and dead (new one installed yesterday)

    Model X - 12volt battery died

    Yay, Mobile Service is turning up today to install a new 12-volt battery...a week off the road is better than 1+ month....still would rather these 12-volt batteries are kept in stock to avoid even a week wait time (as it should be)...but happy none the less.

    Refresh Model X & S Waiting Room - AUSTRALIA

    Same, countless issue but all small however seem to be ongoing...well all small with the exception of the latest 12 volt battery that has died and car is now off the road for weeks (bricked)....still, my wife wants the new Model X when it comes to Australia sometime around 2050.

    Model X - 12volt battery died

    Telsa offered a Landcrusier Prado thingy and my wife said not a chance in hell she is driving it, I called Herz (whom Tesla use) and asked if we could have something smaller and they said they have zero stock of anything else in Victoria. I call Tesla back to complain and they have now offered...

    Thanks, found that battery also, however, if you check the thread below you'll see it's a bit of an issue at the moment re car assuming battery has issue etc.: https://teslamotorsclub.com/tmc/threads/12-volt-battery.266053/#post-6716246 So outside of the Ohmmu I've not been able to find...

    Model X - 12volt battery died

    Finding a 3rd party battery that fits in the space allocated (it's non-standard size, at least in the Model X) is impossible. Only one I have found would need to be sent from the USA (7 days), trouble is it is not supported by Tesla and may have issues....you can read about it here...

    Model X - 12volt battery died

    It's dead...what I cannot understand is how Tesla don't have stock of such items in Australia....with no battery and no after market battery that is approved by Tesla I essentially have a $200k brick for 1+ months (potentially 2-3months). That is incredibly inept of Tesla to leave customers in...

    12 volt Battery

    Trouble for us Australian's is we're being quoted 4+ weeks (they're estimate it could be more like 2-3 months) before Tesla will have a battery for our Model X. The Model X bricked itself overnight with only 2 hours warning that the 12-volt battery is "dead" and we need to book a service...

    Our Model X's 12-volt battery died today...zero warning and now bricked...Tesla are saying a minimum of 4 weeks for a new 12-volt battery!! They are indicating it could be 2+ months. A quick search finds alternative brands, that are actually better than Tesla's 12-volt batteries, that can be...

    Refresh Model X & S Waiting Room - AUSTRALIA

    Tesla know I have had an S, have a M3P and X and looking to upgrade the current X to a new X and they have not contacted me....with 25+ referrals and 7+ years of owning Tesla's you'd think they would be calling long time customers first....maybe there is a city in the USA that is similar...

    Tesla Model Y in Australia

    Install should take 3-5 hours and cost you NO more than $1,000....you are getting ripped off with that quoted price.... Yes a little less than $5k delivered (with all shipping, taxes, stamps etc.)...add about $1,000 for installation and one gets $6,000...in my view not too bad for what one is...

    Tesla Model Y in Australia

    About AUD$6,000 for the Coilovers, shipping, taxes (17% with duty and GST) and conversion plus installation....if you really want a P that gets nearly the same KM's as a Long Range and you want it "now" (as in Long Range can't be had) then it's not a bad price to pay.... I have the same...

    Tesla Model Y in Australia

    Get the P and get Mountain Pass Performance Comfort Adjustable Coilovers and be done with it....you'll not regret it. https://www.mountainpassperformance.com/product/modely-comfortadjustable/ Edit: by the way, lowering it every so slightly will probably increase your range to near on as good...

    Tesla Model Y in Australia

    Best ROI will be RWD, best long range is LR...best fun is P ;) I always get P, wifey always wants cheapest (hence P on my current 3 and wife drives a X75D....bloody should have gotten the X100D though)...
