    Tesla for 80 year old?

    I find it more likely that the OP is simply not a forum person, and got what they needed, than an actual troll. If they have a sister who is 80, likely they are in the same age bracket....and pretty likely they aren't going to be hanging out on forums on which they don't own a car. They did...

    I Ordered a Taycan

    The handling of a 911 Turbo S to a Taycan? You can't compare at all. The Taycan is very sure footed and very planted and that's about the only thing it shares with a 911 Turbo since it's well over 1,000 lbs heavier and also has air suspension. Even crazy german engineering can't make up for...

    I Ordered a Taycan

    So buy a nicely equipped 4S for about the same price as a Plaid. For that you get the following: a real steering wheel, better gauge cluster, HUD, much nicer interior, better handling and brakes, faster charging and almost ultimate customization. Real world range? I bet it's pretty close...

    Which model Taycan did you get?

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

    Not a troll. Owned Model 3 since late 2018. Driven 70k miles plus. V10 made things harder to use, V11 makes things even harder. When you're actually driving the vehicle, even on TACC/AS, there are a bunch of functions which take too much time off the screen. Fonts even smaller. Scroll bar...

    Rough Ride with Winter Tires?

    Uh, those are FACTORY recommendations that are printed in the FACTORY manual regarding air pressure vs. load. Is that few enough words? I never, ever, said anything about selecting a tire which didn't meet load requirements. In that, you are completely correct. If a car requires a...

    Is ford lightening a winner for ford?

    Agree with you on towing. This has been borne out by Model X owners. Range really drops. 80% of drivers don't tow...in your area maybe. Come to the South. I grew up in North East. You need to live in an area like mine to believe the way people use (abuse) trucks. But honestly, if...

    Is ford lightening a winner for ford?

    Why no way? Supposedly the Ford ratings factor in a 1,000 lb payload. Plus, many other EV's meet or beat their EPA range, because they don't use the full testing method that Tesla does and de-rate voluntarily. It's not uncommon for a 220 mile Taycan to easily go 265 miles. Whereas in my...

    POLL: After v11, Will You Download a New Update Again Without Reading Reviews First?

    Learned my lesson after last year’s “double fire” (guess Elon meant dumpster) update. IMO, that update was much more of a step back than this one. So after waiting 2-3 days, I downloaded this one.

    New update 2021.44.25 adds customizable app launcher like Model S refresh plus other major upgrades to system.

    Thought of some more: 15. Not showing the charge at arrival in the navigation small box? Having to scroll down to the bottom of the turn list? Dumb. Like, why did you remove this? 16. Following up on that....did the navigation box get bigger, covering more map, yet shows less information...

    New update 2021.44.25 adds customizable app launcher like Model S refresh plus other major upgrades to system.

    Have driven on it some more. This update shows some promise, but many things remain stupid. 1. Separation of speed limit / speedometer at top of screen; good. Larger (?) speedo; good. 2. Thinner fonts overall? Bad 3. Card for trips and wipers gone; dumb. Why? You literally get nothing...

    New update 2021.44.25 adds customizable app launcher like Model S refresh plus other major upgrades to system.

    Nailed it. A few cool things. A lot of “doesn’t do anything but why, because now I have to learn a new thing for no real benefit” and a bunch of “this is really stupid and A Step backwards”

    New update 2021.44.25 adds customizable app launcher like Model S refresh plus other major upgrades to system.

    Try rebooting the car again. Sounds like a glitch (the part about not shutting down).
  14. Needsdecaf

    New update 2021.44.25 adds customizable app launcher like Model S refresh plus other major upgrades to system.

    Yup. And while some of it is definitely just not wanting something new, there definitely are legitimate gaffes That could be addressed.

    New update 2021.44.25 adds customizable app launcher like Model S refresh plus other major upgrades to system.

    Yah, I don’t mind those moving either. It’s the loss of the trip card that is the big loser from that location, IMO. I had it open constantly to check consumption.

    New update 2021.44.25 adds customizable app launcher like Model S refresh plus other major upgrades to system.

    Yup. This is exactly it for me. The 2020 holiday release and subsequent lack of updates after that clearly pointed the way that Tesla was focused on FSD uber alles, and the UI clearly reflects that. There should be divergent paths at this point. A UI specifically for FSD and one without...

    Judging by the comments here, I am clearly not in the minority, so it is you who is burying your head in the sand. So, you proved your own point.

    New update 2021.44.25 adds customizable app launcher like Model S refresh plus other major upgrades to system.

    Never said it was super simple or easy, or that I could do it. Could you do my job? Highly doubt it. But as for a link to one that works better? try sitting in a modern Audi or a Mercedes with MBUX. You will see that there are plenty of UI’s that utilize touch screens that are far superior...

    New update 2021.44.25 adds customizable app launcher like Model S refresh plus other major upgrades to system.

    I keep seeing in the “tour” of the new software ( I haven’t installed yet) some shortcuts in a ribbon menu scrolling up from the vehicle in the bottom left. Sentry, charging and wipers are there. Can you get those by swiping up?

    New update 2021.44.25 adds customizable app launcher like Model S refresh plus other major upgrades to system.

    So is anyone actually happy with this? I know last year after downloading the Christmas update I was pissed. Still am a bit. Should I just stick with the shitty 2020 update or is this somewhat of an improvement?

    New update 2021.44.25 adds customizable app launcher like Model S refresh plus other major upgrades to system.

    They could easily win. If they stopped optimizing the UI for FSD, which not everyone wants. LOL, it’s pretty easy to see what is messed up. They are optimizing the UI for FSD. Not everyone wants this. The feedback last year was VERY clear. Sure, there were some out of the box complaints...

    2021 Holiday Firmware Release - Predictions and Impressions (after release)

    Seriously. Guess they didn't hear all the carping from 12 months ago about not making things SMALLER!

    2021 Holiday Firmware Release - Predictions and Impressions (after release)

    Are we 100% sure of that? I'd be pissed if that was the case. I also use it extensively. is it another place that's relatively easy to find?
  25. Needsdecaf

    Is ford lightening a winner for ford?

    That will be short lived once supply ramps up. Shiny new things always command a price premium....tried to buy a Plaid lately? But Ford's in this for good and as soon as supply chain and manufacturing catches up, these will be sold alongside all the others, likely with $$$ on the hood...

    Is ford lightening a winner for ford?

    I've worked in commercial, residential, and site construction for 20 plus years in multiple markets. I think a bigger issue is that a lot of people who use work trucks for actual work don't live in places where they can be recharged overnight. If, however, you maintain a fleet of, say...

    polestar? serious competition?

    It's built under the umbrella of Geely, a manufacturer in their own right, by a bunch of Volvo guys using many Volvo parts. Volvo has exploded in both product quality, selection and sales since being acquired by Geely. I'd worry way more about after-warranty service from Tesla than a Polestar.

    Autopilot steering wheel grip

    Right. It's not a capacitve "grip" sensor. It's a torque sensor. Just need to be tugging on the wheel. Alternatively, you can flick the speed increase or volume increase jog wheels up and down one click quickly and that will register your presence to keep the nanny at bay.

    Rough Ride with Winter Tires?

    Sorry, but you are misinformed on this one. Tire loading is a function of both weight and speed. Based on your driving conditions, and your vehicle load, it is 100% permissible to alter your tire pressure to suit your use case. The sticker on the door is for MAX loading conditions (i.e. at...

    SERENITY NOW! - Autopilot Chimes are way TOO LOUD!

    Joe Mode sucks. Doesn't mute the AP chimes enough, but makes it impossible to hear your turn signals. LOL.

    Traffic Aware Cruise Control Chime

    Pretty sure you only got a "double chime" when engaging auto pilot (two stalk presses). If you engaged TACC only (one press) you got no chime.

    Mustang Mach E GT / Performance Pack

    Reviews dropped yesterday. My key takeaways: Magneride fixes much of what people have been complaining about regarding the suspension (which seems eerily similar to how I would describe my Model 3). Sport seats a huge improvement Ford promises to upgrade charging over 80% including OTA for...

    M3P to Plaid - some thoughts

    Best thing Tesla could do to the M3P isn't give it more power, it's give it a better suspension. Not air ride. But a proper set of either adaptive shocks or magnetic shocks. That, and some decent non-boat-anchor wheels. Oh, and some seats you didn't slide out of turning into your driveway...

    Supercharger pin broke off in charge port.

    This has been reported multiple times, and some from the home chargers as well! Thanks for the reminder to throw a pair of needle nose pliers in my trunk. Saw your post in the FB group, glad you weren't stranded!

    Taycan Cross Turismo vs Y boost

    They have. The Plaid is finally gotten close in the vehicle dynamics category vs. the Taycan. It has massive amounts of changes under the skin vs. the old S. Interesting reading here on a Taycan Forum. Note, this poster is (was) also a multiple Tesla owner and an EV fan. He's also owned...

    Taycan Cross Turismo vs Y boost

    The Taycan and Y should not be compared. If anything the Taycan Cross Tourismo is very similar to an S. But much, much lower than a Y. And much tighter inside (based on Taycan sedan, which is identical save for the trunk ILO hatch). But otherwise, not a good comparison.

    Continental ExtremeContact DWS06

    Not a lot, it's just the updated version. Slight changes to the compound. Tread pattern looks identical but you never know if they changed anything there too.

    These tires are awesome. Have owned on the following vehicles: Volvo V70R: Conti Extreme Contact Acura MDX: Conti Extreme Contact DWS BMW 535i: Extreme Contact DWS 06 Porsche Cayenne: Extreme Contact DWS06, 06 Plus (just put the 4th set on) VWGTI: Extreme Contact DWS06. Can you tell I like...

    MKBHD Dumps on Tesla’s Yoke Implementation

    That’s great. Bring the yoke out then. Because you know, FSD Is going to be fully here by the end of 2019, right?

    MKBHD Dumps on Tesla’s Yoke Implementation

    How many times do you turn that yoke more than 90 degrees while flying?

    Home charging issues with 2021 M3 (14-50 outlet/adapter w/mobile cable), and it's not the house. And 'TESLA' LEDs are on.

    Double check the connections on the mobile connector. Check to make sure plug is seated completely AND that the dongle from the outlet to the brain box is also completely seated. Do you just have it dangling from the outlet or do you have it secured somehow? I have mine strapped to the...

    That message has been a consistent party line from Tesla, including direct quotes from Elon.
