    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    That’s normal. Just means you’re not BT connected to the car. Of course, Tesla weren’t thinking when they put the language there that might confuse people.

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    You got lucky on the charger. I believe that’s no longer included if you weren’t an April order. As for the scuffing, not in the same league as the crappy piano black. That was a terrible design choice.

    A BT icon or…?

    Button Above Right Scroll Wheel (Yoke)? Does it do anything?

    In some ways, yes. e.g. the way the turn signals used to work on these cars was appalling. Many here will never know just how bad they were in mid-2021 prior to the software update that removed soft-touch application from all yoke buttons.

    Button Above Right Scroll Wheel (Yoke)? Does it do anything?

    It's a good question, and bananas you have to use the touch screen to answer calls.

    New Michelin PS4s put on with updated T2 rating

    I didn't at a glance, but wasn't specifically looking. I'll look again when I'm going out... Is there meant to be one on T2s generally?

    And that’s why Tesla doesn’t care, I suppose! 😂

    I picked up my last car 3 weeks ago. I doubt it… We would hear a lot more complaints if so…

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    Wow that’s a joke. I’ve picked up three Teslas and in each case I was given the key card and told to just check out the car completely before accepting delivery.

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    But that said it’s not terrible. I’m certainly not letting Tesla do any more crazy adjustments on it for fear they’ll mess something else up. Sorry for the glare but this is how off mine is. Not terrible on the left side, and about spot on on the right. I checked out a bunch at the delivery lot...

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    Didn’t work out. Ok so my adjusters are wacky, kind of like maybe they did the best they could but no dice. The left side (where the hatch is slightly too high) shows no adjustment possible compared to the right. In addition the hatch is leaving marks on the plastic for some reason. Not sure if...

    Duhhh... I'm being dim, thank you. Yep. I'll have to give that a go. I've only adjusted 2 and 3 to no avail... 😔

    MaxPider 3D mats fit Model S refresh?

    The driver’s one stayed in place in my case, though I also upgraded to the latest Tesla type. Are you sure the Velcro is attached?

    Model S Refresh Mud/Splash Guards

    Do those actually cover the front wheel entirely? The second picture makes it look not so…

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    I’m…not sure what you’re referring to, sorry. At least I don’t see any adjustment I can make easily? Show all of us the way! 😂

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    Three stops on each side? I only saw two on each side I think… the one on the hatch itself (kinda pointy looking rubber) or the geometric plastic one attached to the car itself. Was there another one somewhere?
  17. WilliamG

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    Mine was not fixed by adjusting the stops, sadly. Maybe I’m missing something, though... I did notice at delivery and the SA was clueless as to how to fix it…

    Your wish… It’s two lights, one on each side. Sorry for the angle but couldn’t be bothered to open the garage. 😂 Here’s off and on.

    Yep. Will check and see if it’s one or two later…

    Thoughts on Yoke from Plaid owner

    And here we go again. 😂 I can manage the yoke in a lot of situations. I can manage the steering wheel in all situations. There are times I prefer the yoke and there are times I prefer a wheel. There’s never a time where a wheel is awkward, though… So overall a wheel is better because it’s...

    New Michelin PS4s put on with updated T2 rating

    Oh don’t be like that! Give me a reason why a family sedan needs BT in its tires beyond TPMS sensors. Aren’t we meant to be saving the planet? For a track beast I can see the logic. For a 5-door GT car I can’t see it.

    Keep us updated. This is an odd one, and it does seem unlikely that both the antenna and pressure sensor failed...

    Seems like a waste of money to put BT in a tire. You replace a tire many times over the life of a vehicle...

    2022 model S shift control tied to MCU?

    The guessing is very rudimentary. Mostly it will select forward, but if you've pulled into a garage it will (I assume) use the parking sensors to determine reverse is the optimum. At least it always works for me in my garage. You don't need FSD for this. It won't auto-switch between D and R for...

    Thoughts on Yoke from Plaid owner

    Numerous threads on yoke vs wheel already exist. Heck, I started one of them. 😂

    Thoughts on Yoke from Plaid owner

    Easy, tiger. I never said a yoke is safer than a wheel. I just said draping a hand over the top of a wheel isn’t safe.

    Model S 2022 - charging door does not open if pressed - normal?

    Yeah that’s weird as you have two issues with it: 1.) Antenna seemingly not working. 2.) Pressure sensor not working. Very odd.
  30. WilliamG

    Thoughts on Yoke from Plaid owner

    OK you've probably never read in your operating manual that it's unsafe to be eating a burrito while driving, either. It's common sense... If your arm is draped over a wheel you're not going to react as quickly. Honestly, at this point there's nothing further to discuss. Sell the car, get a...

    2022 model S shift control tied to MCU?

    Everybody shifts on the touch screen unless absolutely necessary to do otherwise, as those "physical" controls aren't always available unless you force then to engage.

    How not to recharge a Model S

    Probably fake, like 98.7% of the Internet.
  33. WilliamG

    Thoughts on Yoke from Plaid owner

    You need to be able to react in a microsecond if you need to take control. Draping a hand over the top of the wheel negates safety, whereas the yoke reinforces the 9 and 3 driving position which is the safest. As mentioned, the car is not for you, - best to move on, or just replace the yoke as...

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    Yep, my 2021 had its windshield replaced for a ripple in the line of sight. The replacement was OK, but they all still have the ripples you can see across car windshield (i.e. opposite side) when driving. My wife can see them in my area of the windshield as a passenger, for example. Not worth...

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    At the end of the day if you want quality control you do NOT buy a Tesla, especially a Model S. I think the S is the worst made of all the Teslas I've sat in recently, and it's not even close.
  36. WilliamG

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    Pretty standard. I have a 479 and it's give or take, - mostly the same. By the way that speaker grille up front - they're all like that from what I can tell. The passenger side for some reason they can't seem to align as well as the driver's side. My 2021 was terrible in this regard, and my 2022...

    Pretty sure there's no BT in the tire itself in our cars. Can't see the purpose for us.
  38. WilliamG

    Thoughts on Yoke from Plaid owner

    I have no issues on highway drives. The yoke forces a few safer positions for driving on highway (if you're draping your hand over the top that's not safe), and because the bottom left and right are flat, it's easy to rest a hand there if necessary. If it's not for you, it's not for you. Time to...

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    Yep and what that means is distortion through the rear windows, side windows, looking diagonally across the windshield etc when making a turn (enjoy the ripples!). Be nice if Tesla could get this glass right, but... not yet.
  40. WilliamG

    Got into car with black screens... what happened?

    If it's like the Model 3, the turn signals etc should still work (they won't make any audible sound, but they work), but I've never actually tested this on the S with the haptic buttons while the car is in reboot process.

    You can click in both thumb wheels momentarily and the PRDN buttons will illuminate.

    If it’s summer it will cool off slower in the frunk as it will retain heat better I’d imagine. I keep my cabin air conditioned. 🤷🏻‍♂️

    Completely normal. Never seen Sentry etc footage at night from a Tesla without some. My 2021 Model S had them, my 2019 Model 3 had them, and my new 2022 Model S has them.
