    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    I got the 19s purely as a pragmatic choice for my AS tires, but they grew on me over the winter.

    Model S Plaid - One Year Later

    Man, I am so glad you asked the the question because it caused me to go up the data and grab some screenshots and I realized I screwed up. I am not sure what I was thinking, but my pack degradation is actually only 2%. I pull the data using a CANserver (built by @JWardell) to grab the CANbus...

    It is kinda funny--last time I went to the drag strip, it was after a trip to Home Depot and a run to the grocery store. Only had 70% SoC because I forgot to plug in. Then, on the way back, picked my dog from the vet. Truly surreal.

    Why does TACC remain active after FSD steering wheel disengagement ?(which is not safe IMHO)

    Should have been more clear--when I intervene by grabbing the wheel, both AutoSteer and TACC disengage. I did not like have manual control of the wheel, but the car still controlling speed. When I first got the car, I had double-click set up, but encounter a couple of situations where that was...

    You are right, the UI is the same, but new features like Tidal, track mode take a while to show up on the FSD release train.

    Why does TACC remain active after FSD steering wheel disengagement ?(which is not safe IMHO)

    I agree--one my car (refresh S), I have the one-click option set up up enables/disables TACC and AutoSteer at one time, so there is no confusion--either the car is in control or I am.

    I have to admit, the whole safety score pursuit an the FSD beta testing has took some of fun out of owning the car. I would periodically turn off FSD ( particularly bad be a release, etc) and be pleasantly be reminded how much fun my car is to drive manually. :) Its a trade-off. It is fun...

    Model S Plaid - One Year Later

    Thx. So the interesting thing is the FSD beta build is several releases behind the production release when it comes to features. I just got access to the energy app via voice commands with the last FSD beta release. You are correct, its not available as an app icon yet.

    Model S Plaid - One Year Later

    So I picked up a set of 19s with Michelin PS4S4s which I had on from November to April. The 21s with the PS4s are back on and I expect them to last through next fall when I put the 19s back on.

    That should be flush--the diag cables are behind the panel, maybe a cable or one of the connectors is getting in the way of it seating properly----the the thing pops out, but you need to remove the inductive charing pad first (which is a simple process).

    Kinda of hard to believe, but one year ago today, I was one of the lucky few to take delivery of one of the first Tesla Model S Plaid The intervening year has been a blast with this car--I have loved every minute of ownership. I did a 6 month post, so I am going to focus on what has changed...

    Accessories for 2021 Refresh Model S Plaid/LR

    I looked at these a while back and decided not to. After reading product reviews, they appear to be prone to scratching, even with the best of care and need to replaced after 2-3 years, even if you are religious about maintenance.

    DIY Installing CCS Retrofit in My US 2017 Model X

    My Service folks specifically said the wire harness from the EU retrofit kit would not work in my '16 X as the wiring harness was different between EU and US cars. He might be mistaken, but he did a bunch of research before getting back to me, so I tend to believe what he said.

    Do you use Electrify America as a Tesla owner?

    Go to Controls > Software > More Vehicle Information and if your car is CCS capable, you can order the CCS adaptor from the Tesla Korea website using a re-shipper. If it not enabled, you are stuck waiting for Tesla to release an upgrade package. If you are feeling brave, there are a couple of...

    DIY Installing CCS Retrofit in My US 2017 Model X

    I was looking to do something similar so asked my SC if ordering the latest rev ECU (1495114-00-C) and having them so the install was enough to enable CCS charging or if there is more. They got back to me and said the ECU by itself was not enough--the factory-ready CCS cars have a different...

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    Assuming the brakes has not changed over time, you'd need the motors, something hinge-y to replace the bolts that hold the mount in a fixed position and power + LIN controller (or the like) to drive the motors. Not rocket science but also not sure Tesla would do it. In the 11 months of driving...

    Roof rubber sealant melting

    I am not sure I have anything special I can tell you—opened a ticket complaining about the deterioration of the seals on the top panels of the FWDs and they came back and said the only fix was replacing the entire panel, would be $1,200 a side, but that ESA would cover it. I’m traveling right...

    Good questions. For my first two licensing runs, I did use Cheetah stance because I was running solo, but after that I did a couple more side-by-sidue runs for fun and just mashed the pedal.

    So, went to the drag strip today. Two interesting things to share... The *big* thing is the let me full runs, not needing to lift off to keep it over 10s and under 150 mph. The rules ar so new, everyone is not up to speed, but we got there early and politely pressed the issues during the tech...

    Early '22 Exterior Refresh Tracking (Lights, Charging Door, Appliqué delete)

    I am not worried about the connector--it should be pretty trivial to make a short patch cable to covert between connectors in a non-destructive manner. The SW side is the current question. Hurdle 1 is you would need to get someone to enable the new lights in the car and hurdle 2 is to see if...

    So, since the new matrix LED lights are in the EPC, I tried ordering them via the app and getting a quote for install. Service got back to me and said the headlights will not fit my car--the connector is different.

    Model S Plaid - 6 Months Later

    TBH I leave it in Auto most of the time and the car seems to do a good job making the right setting. If you set to advanced you can set the sliders to shake your fillings loose if you so desire.

    Rivian price increased massively - $15,500. Cancelled, I'm sure I'm not the only one.

    My R1S config went from $77K to $95K. While I am not going to cancel for now, I am back to looking around and seeing what is around next to replace our X. Because of the way this was handled, I have no assurance that the price will not further increase between now and when I get the vehicle...

    I am mostly interested in the new headlights if they work better, which I expect. I think these were the headlights we were supposed to get last year, so I have higher hopes for a retrofit. I don't mind the old tail lights and think the contrasting trim between them helps the car look wider.

    IIRC, part of the reason for the nosecone was to keep the design familiar and not weird, so you got the pseudo grille.

    Early '22 Exterior Refresh Tracking (Lights, Charging Door, Appliqué delete)

    Yeah I did -- at the time, my headlight package was listed as "premium" which also kinda matches the description of the headlights in the EPC "HD/LP ASY, SAE UP-LEVEL". I've been waiting for the new headlights to show up in the EPC to see if I can order them, but they have not shown up yet.

    Yeah, that was probably me: A 3dB change is halfing/doubling sound power - not perceived loudness, but 3dB should be a perceptible change. Anyway, my experience is that the feature does reduce the low frequency road rumble. Maybe not the cones of silence that were initially hinted at, but I...
