    7 seat waiting room

    OK so this is finally happening. It's being delivered tomorrow afternoon. Since we are out of country, I'm going to have a family friend who is also a Tesla owner, pick the vehicle up. I won't be able to pick up the car from my friend's place until middle of August. Is there anything that my...

    7 seat waiting room

    So I now have my VIN and have scheduled delivery this Saturday. A family friend who also owns a MY is going to take delivery since I'm out of country. However the payment screen on the app is now blanked out and I can not initiate the funds transfer. Any wire going through is going to need to...

    WHOA! I just got my VIN! Delivery date range moved up to June 24-30. Only problem is since I initially was going to pay cash, and now I want to get a loan and arbitrage the difference in the loan rate vs my return on investments (typically 15% IRR or higher). But with such a short delivery...

    Audiophile Question - FLAC 24/96 Playback

    Here's an older but interesting article on the subject. Dynamic Comparison of LPs vs CDs - Part 4 I think as discussed above, the real bottom line is how well something is recorded. While there is controversy over the original red book standard of CD's, newer digital formats such as MQA have...

    I got the exact same text. I replied back "JUNE" but I've not received any other communications since.

    Audiophile Question - FLAC 24/96 Playback

    Vinyl can "hit the bass" every bit as well as digital can. Most folks perceive bass in the 40-80 Hz region. In fact, vinyl can reproduce bass down into the 10 Hz level on a good system. The problem is most folks have only heard vinyl on a low to midfi system with limited resolution. Under those...

    Give a listen to this track - on "inferior" resolution vinyl even lol:

    Audiophile Question - FLAC 24/96 Playback

    Sorry but if I were to look for an example of everything that's wrong with music recording today, that Nine Inch Nails tracks would probably be one of the poster childs. You can barley tell one instrument from the other. Drum kit sounds like a one note piece. It's all so very dynamically...

    OK got a narrowed delivery window to 6/20 - 7/4. That's a 14 day window. No idea if that means there's hope, or it's just going to get pushed back yet again once I get inside the delivery window like last time.

    Some lucky Vancouver BC folks should be getting their MYP cars this week. We were on I-5 heading on up to Vancouver and there was a big transporter loaded up with MYP's or MYLR's with 21" wheels. He was headed up and went through the truck crossing at Blaine.

    Audiophile Question - FLAC 24/96 Playback

    Dynamic compression is never good!!! It's certainly not "wonderful". Did you listen to the tracks in the link I provided? You can CLEARLY hear the change in the nature of the drums. The solution to ambient noise is to make it quieter, not ruin the music by compressing it lol. On my Subaru, I...

    Audiophile Question - FLAC 24/96 Playback

    There's definitely a difference between 256k and FLAC. The problem is most folks are listening to dynamically compressed music. So whatever difference there may be, gets obscured by the dynamic compression that afflicts much of today's music. This is a great article with a music track that...

    7 seat waiting room

    The really bad news about all these delays is as the EDD that gets pushed back, for those that are going to get a loan, the interest rates keep rising. I was originally going to get a 1.4% DCU loan. It's now up to 2.74%. I was going to invest the money where I can get 14-16% IRR.

    Phantom braking so bad I want to return my car

    I'm very satisfied with my cheap ass Subaru. I didn't pay very much for it and it works flawlessly. The same can't be said for Teslas. The Subies are the cheapest cars I've ever bought new. Hell, my F450 pushes $100k. And my Porsche is well over that. Tesla being the more expensive vehicle that...

    Phantom braking so bad I want to return my car

    I'm not at all worried that my car isn't going to emergency brake for me in a severe accident. First of all, I am the primary safety device in such a scenario. I don't rely on the safety systems. However that being stated, as someone who spends a lot of time in SF Bay Area traffic where driving...

    I realize it's a sample of one, but neither the Outback nor the Ascent have ever suffered from PB in my journeys all over the western US and Canada. And that includes LOTS of country roads.

    Got moved from June 7 - July 12, to June 14 - July 12. Which I'm sure means absolutely nothing. I fully don't expect to receive a car until Christmas if not later.

    Phantom braking so bad I want to return my car

    Subaru's Eyesight has pre-collision emergency braking and by all accounts it works. So I don't know what you're referring to when you're implying Subaru's Eyesight system doesn't work. I've experienced Eyesight on my Subaru in action and it works. Contrast that with the myriad of reports of...

    UGH!!!! Our EDD got pushed yet again. It last got moved when we were a day INSIDE the EDD period. Now we got moved from May-June to June 7- July 12. NO way are we getting a car this year at this rate. I was going to get a loan and arbitrage the money to invest and make some extra return, but...

    7 seat waiting room

    Well, a family friend got her black/black 7 seat LR with Geminis. Her orig order date was similar to ours. Our white/white 7 seat LR with Geminis got pushed back after we had already entered the EDD for a day. It's now 5/14-6/11, which is still a 4 week window. So I suspect when we get into that...

    HA!!! My EDD just got switch out from 4/20-5/15 to 5/14-6/11. Maybe I'll get a car by Christmas? I'm not holding my breath! So aggravating!

    I just replied "NO" to the text. I just left a msg with our sales adviser. I'm in NorCal so getting a car from Fremont should be easy peasy.

    Yes, I got that a few days ago. Does that mean anything as far as whether I'm going to get the car?

    7 seat waiting room

    Ok.....so now I am INSIDE my EDD of 4/20-5/18. Not a single word from Tesla yet. It would not surprise me if my EDD gets shoved back again, but it is annoying that I've received zero communication.

    7 seat waiting room

    My EDD is still holding at April 20-May 18, but I have zero faith that it's going to actually get delivered within that time frame. In fact, it'll surprise me if I actually get a car this year at all.

    7 seat waiting room

    I have zero faith that we will actually receive a vehicle by the EDD. I have every expectation that it will get pushed back further, even into October or later. Fortunately we have several vehicles to drive in the meantime. I'm actually working on getting some of those ready to sell while the...

    7 seat waiting room

    Tonight my Tesla rep called and offered me a black/black MY LR 7 seater. I declined because I've had black cars before and they're a nightmare to keep clean. Plus where we live it regularly gets up to 110 degrees during the long hot summers, and black is murder in the heat. I figure someone...

    Tint Advice

    It's worth it. I have 3M crystalline in both my truck and my SUV. It gets up to 110° here in the summers and the film has a very notice effect on cutting down the heat.
  32. T

    Tint Advice

    Cut through all the noise and look up the Total Solar Heat Rejection (TSER) for each film you're considering. Buy the film with the highest TSER with the most optical clarity. Typically 3M Crystalline and Spectra PhotoSync are such brands.

    Wait - adaptive cruise turns off at 80 mph? Is this a joke? Tesla can't even get this right?

    Acceleration boost upgrade

    Perhaps this has been answered already. But how much does AB affect range provided you're driving the vehicle normally and not hooning it all over the place?

    Dual charging outlets

    Thank you. It looks like the Tesla Wall Connector mounted in an enclosure might be the the best way to go. I would prefer an enclosure to deter thieves. Would that be code compliant?

    I have the capacity for a 40 amp breaker in my garage subpanel. I was going to have the electrician install a Nema 14-50 plug with about a 15 ft conduit run. However I've been thinking that it'd be nice to be able to park the car in front of the garage instead of inside on occasion. Is it...

    Phantom braking so bad I want to return my car

    Well my sample size is TWO Subies if that makes a difference lol. Both vehicles have had zero issue. And I'm on the Subaru forums a lot. NO mentions of phantom braking there either. Compare and contrast that with what we see on the Tesla forums.

    Phantom braking so bad I want to return my car

    I've been on the freeway in a driving rainstorm and the Eyesight on my Subaru will eventually disengage with a warning about not being able to "see". But I've also been in situations where I could barely see the car in front of me from the spray being kicked up and my Eyesight functioned...

    Best Wifi extender

    Mesh network is the way to go these days. Our house is over 100 ft from end to end and us U-shaped. Our garage is a separate building. I'm going to be adding one more mesh node in the garage to boost the signal there.

    Acceleration boost upgrade

    Actually $2k to get that much of an increase in acceleration is relatively inexpensive. Go price what it would cost most vehicles to get that kind of gain (safely).

    Tesla Y 7 seater delays

    My March 17-31 EDD got pushed to April 20-May 18. This is for a MY LR 7 seat no FSD. It looks like I may never actually receive this vehicle. I ordered back in October 2021. Fremont would be my factory.

    It changes nothing because you attempted to compare a vehicle designed in the early 2000's with a much much newer vehicle.

    Phantom braking so bad I want to return my car

    Last time I checked, an EV motor vehicle still qualifies as an automobile. Those other companies manufacture automobiles, both EV and ICE. Their dealers answer the phones and provide customer service at varying levels. I don't understand the need to defend and apologize for Tesla. Holding the...

    Phantom braking so bad I want to return my car

    I was actually referring to Tesla "dealerships". Since Tesla doesn't use official dealerships, it's their service centers. By whatever name you want to refer to them by, they don't answer phone calls. Every other dealership does.

    Phantom braking so bad I want to return my car

    Your experience is a sample of 1. Did you buy your Q7 TDI new or used? Also it's not fair to compare the Tesla (a new design) with an Audi that was designed back in the early 2000's. Of course legacy ICE cars are going to be more expensive to maintain. That's a given. But that does not...

    Phantom braking so bad I want to return my car

    A million cars is far lower than volumes that GM, Ford, Toyota, Honda, etc., deliver. And those companies answer the phones. BTW the million Teslas sold is a worldwide figure. They only sold 352k in the US. GM sold 2.2 million in the US. Heck even Subaru outsells Tesla here. And Subaru has...
