    Supercharger - Long Beach, CA (LIVE 16 May 2022, 20 V3 stalls)

    Sorry guys no additional chargers and no work related to Tesla. Was down to 40 miles so I went over to charge. While I was there I talked to the construction guys and took some photos. Foreman said they’re building an enclosure for the trash dumpers. City came by and told property...

    Really shitty service experience

    I still haven’t actually had to go into a service center yet and mobile service has been amazing. Owning a Tesla “can” be a frustrating experience but I’m all these years I still get more excited to drive it than most any of the other cars I’ve owned.

    Really shitty service experience

    Yeah by the time this car is out of warranty it Might be time to go back to Audi, Porsche or Mercedes again.

    Rock chip, is this worth it to fix

    Those cheap kits work really well. I used one on a rental before. I wasn’t sure if it was there when I rented but I noticed it for sure when I was getting ready to return it. $7 and you couldn’t tell it was even there.

    Really shitty service experience

    Not my experience but not uncommon. Sorry for the frustration. As other major brands start to become more competitive and with Tesla doing two price hikes this month alone - Tesla is really going to have to finally sort out their problematic service and customer service which has been a...

    Service Center and/or Supercharger - Signal Hill, CA

    Parking lot is basically clear today. There's a small skip with some stuff in it; but otherwise the lot is free of debris. I would expect them to do some asphalt and paint line on the lot sometime soon. The hole with the old Nissan logo needs to be filled in somehow. Not sure what it's like...

    Hotspot instead of Tesla connectivity

    I went out and ran several speed test and times various page loads in a few areas around time. On the cars 4G things were often, but not always so slow as to sometimes make you think the browser has froze up. The up and down speeds themselves were good. But latiency was so bad in some cases...

    Will Mercedes jump to level 3 before Tesla? Looks like it.

    Someone correct me but with the Tesla if your not in self drive and you just take your foot off the gas the brake comes on immediately. Obviously because your one petal driving. On a regular gas car the brake long only comes on when you hit the brake. So right off the bat I would expect Tesla vs...

    Hotspot instead of Tesla connectivity

    I’ve updated the firmware while on the road using my phone hotspot connected as WiFi. But with unlimited data and no caps I’ve never had any problems.

    Hotspot instead of Tesla connectivity

    Theater streaming and even browsing the web is pretty slow on 4G. My 5G phone is so much faster. I would pay upwards of $500 for a 5G upgrade to the car. I pay the $10 btw. Well actually less since I pay annually. I hesitated as well since I have unlimited everything on my 5G phone...

    Supercharger - Long Beach, CA (LIVE 16 May 2022, 20 V3 stalls)

    I don’t know if this is related as well but all the Burbank super chargers were only doing 15-25 earlier tonight. I’ve never got anywhere near that low at Burbank, let alone most / all other superchargers.

    Service Center and/or Supercharger - Signal Hill, CA

    More updates. Signage is up for Signal Hill as well as the Service entrance. This whole gray on gray signage is a weird choice on the front of the building. Especially when the side is black on gray.

    Supercharger - Long Beach, CA (LIVE 16 May 2022, 20 V3 stalls)

    Main screen, screen location details and app all showed all 20 free. Might be some issues with Long Beach that need to be worked out. Haven’t seen such a discrepancies at other chargers in my experience.

    UMC Charger AMP went down from 32 to 16

    Read the thread above there couple be numerous over potential causes. In your specific case it sounds like likely the temp. What was the actual temp in the car. I have a digital thermometer mounted mid way up the way near my two chargers to keep track of these things. That said the Tesla...

    Supercharger - Long Beach, CA (LIVE 16 May 2022, 20 V3 stalls)

    BUSY BUSY BUSY. Stopped at Seal Beach to have a light brunch on Main Street. Checked the charger status and it said 20 of 20 free. Weird but okay. Got here and 18 of 20 chargers were IN USE but none reflected as in use. Two min later it was 20/20 in use and short wait showing. So everyone...

    Yeah I’ve noticed that on most days it’s gets busier after 9pm compared to most other times.

    MAJOR UPDATE Tesla signage Installed front and side of building Side painted. From needs paint. Chargers installed Behind locked gates and not active. Lot and building still under rehab. See photos

    Supercharger - Long Beach, CA (LIVE 16 May 2022, 20 V3 stalls)

    For me... I've never seen more than 8/16 chargers full. Usually much less. Happy that it also has faster chargers than Cerritos or Westminster and more chargers than Cerritos. Plus half the distance of either.

    FSD Beta 10.12

    Yep another few hundred more new beta people. When looking at the previously installed version the percentage of people coming from 10.11.2 was 99% when I checked last week; now it’s at 80%. Congrats on all the new people in now or downloading soon. I do hope that this wider expansion push...

    FSD Beta 10.12

    Having same / similar issues with 10.12.2 that I didn't have with 10.11.2 or recent builds. When 10.12.2 goes wrong, it goes horribly wrong. Still testing.

    FSD Beta 10.12

    Northern states perhaps. The front cameras on my old Audi A7 that looked left and right never had any issues getting "splattered or obstructed" in my Southern states use. Even the rear left right cameras never had a problem. Unlike my Tesla who's rear camera seems to always get obscured when it...

    FSD Beta 10.12

    California has plenty no turn on red. Usually where the turn is blind or limited visibility and often fast cross traffic.

    FSD Beta 10.12

    I don’t recall which truck it was but what I saw the other day was the truck had something like FIFTEEN cameras. Certainly blows Tesla out of the water. That said I don’t know the mount locations and certainly at least some of those cameras are intended for assisting with towing, especially...

    FSD beta expansion to new beta testers June 2022

    Best of luck. It’s such a mess. Not the bed time for new people to come in. 10.12.2 has tried to kill me so many times in a week. Haven’t seen that happen for quite a few versions.

    2017-2020 Model 3 recalled for trunk/rear camera issue

    I’m in SoCal. Three attempts and they won’t do mine.

    Can Tesla mobile service fix this panel gap?

    Generally anything hap related they require to be in service center. Not that they can’t do it multiple. Constant answer is that if they need something specific they have it at center but not always with mobile. So as a rule they just say now. I had a loose bolt in the door area. I couldn’t...

    2017-2020 Model 3 recalled for trunk/rear camera issue

    I’ve spoke to about this with Tesla via the app and also mobile tech twice. They inspect and if not frayed they basically do nothing. If slightly damaged they just add plastic clip. If deep damaged replace the cable and add clip.

    PSA about why you should NOT use auto lift trunk struts

    Yet another reason I don’t add aftermarket parts; esp during warranty. I want the auto trunk but I’ll wait to I’ll replace this since the new ones come with it.

    Is the 12v port in the center console connected to the main battery pack?

    Which model year; and the one in the front cubby or the one in cubby under the armrest?

    FSD beta expansion to new beta testers June 2022

    Expansion to new safety score comment was dependent on 10.12.2 being a stable improvement. My experience with it however is that it’s a nightmare. Like all overs two forward and one back. The stuff that’s bad is real bad. The car has constantly trying to kill me by trying to t bone parked...

    Anyone ordering vanity plates for their M3?

    I ordered black plates that didn’t have personalized digits either and still took 6-8 months on two cars. They’re still considered personalized or I should I just say not stock since it’s not the default plate supplied. The car that just had stock plates took like 1-2 months.

    FSD Beta 10.12

    This changed at some point. I have camera and when they first launched I had three. But it's been five for some time now.
  36. J

    FSD Beta 10.12

    That's about the only reason to upgrade to 10.12.2 at this point. Being able to do 85 made all the difference on my drives yesterday and today. Only rarely would 90 have given me 99% coverage. Quite happy with 85 over previous 80.
  37. J

    FSD Beta 10.12

    Correct. I have no yield and no stops. Other portions have proper stop line, stop painted in street and stop signs. 10.2 got it right a few times. But it’s always been a problem for beta. Never gives any waiting for turn, checking for visibility, creeping or any messages. Today on 12.2 was by...

    FSD Beta 10.12

    Ok after this last time and two days and several hundred miles 12.2 is a major step backwards. What it gets right there are notable but minor improvements over 10.2. What it gets wrong it gets worse than any other version. I’m surprised this is going full roll out. Examples. There is a...

    FSD Beta 10.12

    1200 pending new 12.2 users 1200 users still left on 11.2 That's basically everyone now or soon. Hopefully you safety score people are next up !?!?

    FSD Beta 10.12

    I had one hit many months ago out of what I think was a possible three. The next release I think they went to five and my one cleared. Since then I got one more which carried over from 11.2 to 12.2.

    Service Center and/or Supercharger - Signal Hill, CA

    No reason to drop by today but was passing by. As with most posts for Signal Hill there has been noticeable but not notable changes since last visit. There continues to be minor cosmetic work like laying the brickwork on one of the driveways. More refuse has been removed and the parking...

    FSD Beta 10.12

    I did 40 miles an hour ago and 12.2 went quite well. Will do another 100 later tonight in a better mixed loop.

    FSD Beta 10.12

    Per TeslaFi 1027 on or about to install 10.12.2 1303 installed or installing 10.11.2 (minus though pending 10.12.2 install) Excluding older betas still installed and those still waiting to get it...almost 50% have moved to latest update. Based on Tesla installs and with caveats, as partial...

    FSD Beta 10.12

    I’ve done download on hotspot several times, and usually while driving. Then just pullover to finish the install part. But if you have poor connection or no unlimited data I get it.
  45. J

    FSD Beta 10.12

    Like most of the releases it’s two steps forward and one step back. So there are befits and downsides. Latest release contributes to the great good. I don’t know how much Tesla focuses on prior releases when they’ve moved on to a newer release and started the major group push.
  46. J

    FSD Beta 10.12

    Mine stalled at 30% for nearly an hour so my install took nearly two hours. Either way it was after midnight and I wasn’t able to go for a drive anyway.
  47. J

    FSD Beta 10.12

    I figure we're on full wide release to everyone that had a prior beta. It's just coming out in chunks.
  48. J

    Service Center and/or Supercharger - Signal Hill, CA

    For those wondering about all the “TI” comments it’s “Tenant Improvements.”
  49. J

    FSD Beta 10.12

    Major push has started. Surprisingly I just got my download. Can’t wait to try it out tomorrow. I’m usually on the first 5-10% of the (big) push and that seems to be holding true this time as well.
