    Accident in new Model X! Did Dashcam record it?

    The feature needs to be enabled to record. Sort of like taking the lens cap off to take a picture.

    Beware of Model X

    Have a 2017 X and it has been way less maintenance and repair cost than any of my other high end cars. Sure something will fail but it has been very rare for me. For instance just this month got the 12v battery message, got it replaced, first time since I bought it in 2017.

    Any great new tire choices to replace OEM 20”?

    I second the Pirelli Scorpions. Twice as quite as the factory Contis, great grip, better wear.

    Should I buy this Model X 90D?

    Can agree with posts so far. Nice X with the right upgrades. Go for it.

    "New" Versus "Old" 2020 Continental Model X Tires – Lessons Learned from Recent Tire Purchases

    Couldn’t tell you because I have not tried the Pirelli with the foam but I had the Continentals with the foam and they were way louder.

    Pirelli Scorpion Zero tires are all season tires?

    Had the Contis Extreme contact after Pirelli zeros and the Contis were worse. Tire rack allowed a return and I am back to Pirelli Zero AS. Not sure how you drive but since 2017 with my MX Pirrelli beats Conti anything and don’t even ask about Michelin.

    "New" Versus "Old" 2020 Continental Model X Tires – Lessons Learned from Recent Tire Purchases

    From experience I can assure you the Pirelli Zero A/S will delight. Most notably they are way more quiet than the Contis.

    Model X Reliability

    Don’t doubt your experience. Just saying my MX is quiet, especially after changing out of the Conti factory tires, reliable, and has not given me any problems. I even still have the original 12v battery. Every brand, same model, same year, has owners reporting rattles in some and no rattles in...

    Model X Reliability

    Weird I guess. My 2017 MX has had a mobile service visit to fix the LEDs on the charge port, a fix for one FWD seal, and 2 service center visits to upgrade HW3 / MCU 2. No issue with fit or finish here. I have owned BMW, Porsche, Lexus, and Audi. The Tesla has required the least amount of...

    "New" Versus "Old" 2020 Continental Model X Tires – Lessons Learned from Recent Tire Purchases

    From a 2017 owner I can save everyone the hassle. Buy Pirelli from tire rack. Better ride, less road noise, better grip, better wear, and road hazard fix for life. Contis are the worst you can put on a MX.

    I love a happy ending. Glad to hear you made it.

    Tesla Battery and Nickel Allergy

    Go to an allergist. They make drugs that fix this. Or you know that front door to your house? Uh huh. Don’t go out of the house. Problem solved either way.

    Tesla Battery and Nickel Allergy

    Go to an allergist. I suspect the car is not the issue.

    Really poor range from 2017 model x 90D? should i return to dealer

    Have a 2017MX 90d with 20’s as well and agree 500+ is concerning If you are driving regular. Agree with the recommendations from Harvey. even in the cold weather (35-40 degrees) I can usually keep it under 400 and I do use the fan heater pretty often.

    Pirelli tires for 20s

    Have had Zero AS in northeast winters and I can confirm they do NOT suck. Snow grip is great and with a few nor’easters this year ran on plenty of puddles with excellent grip. On a new set and they are much quieter than the stock Conti.

    Cold weather package

    Have the cold weather package on my 2017MX and it is fantastic when winter storms hit. I garage it at home but when you are out and its cold it really makes a difference.

    Model X Falcon Door Leak

    Had a leak early when I bought it(2017). Service center replaced the gaskets and to this day never have water drip in, even when I open the doors in a downpour. See if they can replace your gaskets.
  18. Batt Car

    Tire replacement time.

    Recently put Pirelli Scorpion Zeros on my 2017MX. Amazed with the ride and reduced noise compared to the factory Conti silent. Grip is great and they are a bit ‘softer’ so the ride is more comfortable. So far I don’t see any efficiency loss. Pretty happy with them.

    Model X (only) - FSD beta

    Like I said AP2 and MCU1 upgraded as I wrote. Early 2017 MX. It is what they delivered at the time. Got my camera upgrades already (early adopter) and it is solid.
  20. Batt Car

    Model X (only) - FSD beta

    I fall into AP2.0 to HW3and MCU1 to MCU2 and just got it tonight. Safety Score 98. will drive it tomorrow and report back. So thrilled to finally get it.

    Water Dumped Into Car when opening Falcon Door!

    Had that happen early on and the service center installed new seals and it has never happened again. Have a 2017 MX.
  22. Batt Car

    Is MCU2 upgrade worth it?

    Worth it! Can’t imagine my 17X without it.

    Difficulty getting MX into narrow garage door

    Park outside. Some bird will autograph it for you.

    Difficulty getting MX into narrow garage door

    Can’t read . . or drive seems to be your problem. My post said the mirrors point down in reverse, not folded in. Just park outside.

    Difficulty getting MX into narrow garage door

    Not sure of the issue. I could back any car in a garage, no matter the make or model. The fact that my Tesla provides all sorts of warnings does not mean it won’t fit. If you are relying on sensors to drive your car maybe you should not be driving at all. Use your eyes for God’s sake. Sheesh!

    Difficulty getting MX into narrow garage door

    I have a tight garage door too. I back it in and put some small black tape lines on the garage floor to line up my wheels on. With the side mirrors pointed down when in reverse I can back in quickly without worrying about hitting the door frame. Just line up on the tape and easy breezy.

    iPhone vs. Android

    Anyone who thinks any type of phone has anything to do with this lacks wisdom. Why even suggest it. Stupid comment to add to this thread.

    My thoughts on 2018 Model X after Turo Rental

    Every time I drive my wife’s M3 I thank God for my MX. The power doors, dual screens, the ride, the room, I could go on and on. Best Tesla model ever.

    How bad are Falcon Wing doors?

    FWDs are not a problem. YouTube search “car door accidents” and see hundreds of regular doors opening on people, slamming on fingers, legs, arms, pets, you name it. Oh and of course failing to latch, seals letting in water, and stupid people backing into garages with them open, opening them in...

    First Refreshed Model X Deliveries in July

    I’ll stick with my current X. Free supercharging, upgraded HW and MCU, and not even one service issue. The new one would need to go vertical and fly me places to move me.

    Trading in 2018 Model 3 LR AWD for 2016 Model X P90D...

    You will love the trade. Model X any year is so much better than any 3/Y. Yes the range is less (who cares with all the chargers now). Yes a few features less (wait till you get used to the auto doors all around more than compensates). All the room. Most importantly . . . You will never draw a...

    How bad are Falcon Wing doors?

    Never an issue. Except every time I open them people have to come over and ask about the car. They are the signature feature of Tesla’s signature model.

    2017 model X HW3 and MCU2 upgrade

    I understand you may get some of the visualizations with HW3 more than with HW2.5 but the FSD features will not be software enabled unless you pay for FSD. It is kind of like buying a 64bit computer but only running 32bit software on it. All that power but not used.

    LTB 2017 MX 90D - What to look for?

    I bought the same year and model. 2017 90d. I purchased FSD when it was $2k and recently upgraded the Infotainment. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this car. Had a few minor mobile service visits to fix the charge port LEDs and a loose door seal but otherwise not a single problem. Mine was a private sale and...

    2017 model X HW3 and MCU2 upgrade

    So you just confirmed what I said. If you don't pay you don't get it for free with the Infotainment upgrade. Can't understand why this is so hard to understand. People, you included, make it sound like if they upgrade the MCU they get FSD free. I simply pointed out you do not. They can...

    2017 model X HW3 and MCU2 upgrade

    Like I said. Many thought they got it for free. Inspecting the hardware confirmed they did not, on more than just this forum. Just saying . . Tesla is not "giving it away" . . . when FSD goes live those that did not pay won't have it. Simple as that.
  38. Batt Car

    2017 model X HW3 and MCU2 upgrade

    It would be a fluke. The service center split my Infotainment and HW3 appointments because they did not have the parts. I doubt they will just "Throw in HW3" because they have a wiring harness. They won't giveaway $10k for free. Even if they did they would not software enable it. Tesla knows how...

    2017 model X HW3 and MCU2 upgrade

    I'm saying if you had EAP, like I had, and didn't pay for FSD, like people have, then HW3 was not installed for free. Infotainment upgrade works just the same with AP2 as it does with HW3. HW3 will be needed to utilize the new neuro-based FSD capability. AP2 & AP2.5 will not handle it but you...

    Are gull wing doors gone in new X?

    No. Elon said the wing are iconic. He won't remove them from the X.
  42. Batt Car

    2017 model X HW3 and MCU2 upgrade

    It has been confirmed on multiple Tesla forums, and by Tesla HQ. If you have EAP and did not buy the FSD you do not get HW3 if you upgrade the Infotainment system. Those who think they did will be sadly disappointed later.
  43. Batt Car

    2017 model X HW3 and MCU2 upgrade

    Early 2020. I bought FSD for my 2017 MX which had EAP for $2k. Upgraded the hardware and had the Infotainment upgrade. Like a new car. Of course Infotainment less now but still worth every penny.
  44. Batt Car

    Sound System - How?

    My 2017 MX always picks up right where it left off when I leave. The only issue I have seen is sometimes it skips ahead during a song. Very rarely though.

    Major 2021 Model X refresh pending [Update: Unveiled January 27, 2021]

    A leak confirmed there are subtle changes. Why would they mess with a model that never has a sales problem. It is Tesla's icon. Mostly invisible changes, battery, heat pump, dynamic motors. Nothing revolutionary.
  46. Batt Car

    Mod 3 owner- I’d buy a model X with regular doors- possible?

    Elon bought. Mclaren F1 in 1999 that had the FWD (for $1m). He will never remove the FWD from the X. Frankly I would not buy a Tesla without them.
