    Taptes front seat covers on my 2022 Model X (plaid)

    I really doubt there is significant difference between the cream and the white, maybe a little. The main reason it gets hot is because the entire cabin is encased in glass. WRT to the covering, don’t forget the seats are cooled. It only takes a couple of minutes of climate action to cool them...

    Refreshed 2021+ Model X and Model X Plaid waiting room

    EAP was never included free. I went back and looked at my June 2018 MVPA, and found that I paid $5,000 for it. So 6k today is not too terrible. The entire car was $120,000, for X 100D in 2018. My 2020 X LR, was $99,990 incl FSD (the 2021 pricing). Now, if I ordered that very same car today...

    Tesla removed the hitch option. Because it is standard with all Model X. Every X comes with one.

    Do I need the keyfob on the 2022 refresh MX?

    In my case, my phone is always with me. Because my phone is also the key to my house. So it is very easy for me to always use the phone. We run with both cars in the same account, so it is just a matter of flipping vehicles in the app to switch. But switching cars is something we don't often...

    Do I need the keyfob on the 2022 refresh MX?

    To improve performance of the phone as key, set location services for the app on your phone to ALWAYS. Most apps default to "while using" iOS and I assume Android will complain about your "Always" setting, but it will allow your "phone as key to always work. Another thing, if you have more than...

    Refreshed 2021+ Model X and Model X Plaid waiting room

    It is at the very bottom of Autopilot settings, down with TACC chime and Automatic Emergency Braking. However, I realized I have never had a vehicle without at least EAP, and except for a few months, FSD. So my earlier suggestion may have not been correct. It is separate from any of the NoA set...

    Do I need the keyfob on the 2022 refresh MX?

    Tesla suggests carrying the card if you mainly use your phone as key. It was mandatory with my Model 3, because the phone as key frequently failed. So far with my new X, it has not failed, but I am only four days in.

    The green light chime does not require any optional software. It just needs to turned on (autppilot settings). It has been available on all cars for quite some time.

    FSD Beta Performance Summary Week 3

    And of course NOW Enhanced Autopilot is available again. I would have bought that for 6,000 (or maybe 5,000) instead of 10,000 for FSD <sigh>. I mainly wanted Autopark and NoA w auto lane-change.

    Basic question on free charging & referrals

    I suspect it is because many folks used the promotion on cars that are just being delivered now. It went away as of September 18, 2021. But that would make it applicable to many orders that are just now being delivered. It appears on the web site as a "past" promotion with date limits, not a...

    Model X Delivery Checklist

    No, you need to submit an accessory order. The 14-50 adapter has not been included for years. I did not get one with my 2022, nor my 2018.

    Do I need the keyfob on the 2022 refresh MX?

    All personal preference. The fob does allow very easy access to all the doors, trunk and frunk. You can access those features with the phone app, but it probably requires more effort. The key card is handy to leave the vehicle unlocked. Bottom line? it depends. I use all three.

    FSD Beta Performance Summary Week 3

    I use FSD on city streets partially, usually with no destination selected. It handles traffic signals fine on busy streets, which makes high traffic conditions tolerable, even if I am not making much progress. I am anxious to get back on the FSD wagon with my new 2022. Problem partially is the...

    Model X 2022 Refresh model windshield tinted

    No. Tinting the windshield is illegal in my state, my shop will not do it (I am not really interested anyway, due to possible complications of flare and distortion). Only the front side windows to 20%. The rear and top windows are already tinted.

    Refreshed 2021+ Model X and Model X Plaid waiting room

    I mainly got the offer from the web site, although the app is updated with the information. After every offer, you are asked to approve it or reject it. It is also very easy to change your mind and cancel the trade-in at any time, or the entire order for that matter. My trade-in was worth...

    Basic question on free charging & referrals

    It depends on when you placed your order. See Referral Program I am trying to open a discussion about why I only got half of what I believe I was promised. I made a self-referral which in the past, meant I got both sides, 1,000 miles twice. So far, I've only gotten 1,000.

    That was exactly my experience. The quote was based upon my photos, with monthly mileage updates. The trade-in amount was stable through the last couple of updates, and was applied against the cost of the new vehicle, plus some extra cash from me. Easy and painless. The trade-in amount from...

    Agreed. I just picked up my 2022 X this past Monday. It was perfect. I keep going outside and walk around it, shaking my head. I can't find a thing wrong with it at all. My previous cars have always had some minor warranty issues, poor wheel alignment, FW doors reliability or something needing...

    Refreshed 2021+ Model X and Model X Plaid waiting room

    Don't think so. The ceramic coating goes on top. The main thing is the PPF or vinyl wrap will not adhere very well to the ceramic coating. I have had no issues with Tesla paint (except perhaps the limited color choices). I've had four.

    Refresh X missing USB ports in center console?

    You must move the cup holders out of the way to see them. Two USB-C and 12V outlet. There is also a USB-A inside the glove compartment, normally occupied with the 128 GB stick for video recording.

    That would be Zero. There is no roof per se, on a Model X. The top is the Falcon Wing Doors and the windshield.

    Refreshed 2021+ Model X and Model X Plaid waiting room

    It is probably because the store and lot are very crowded. If you are not trading in a vehicle, there really is very little reason for you to go to the store. In my case, I was trading in my 2018 X, so I had to go there anyway, about 10 miles for me. Most of the required paperwork was related to...

    Considering 2023 MX--The Yoke is a concern.

    The specific problem I had with my 2018 X, was when I had the steering wheel in the optimum position for me, the "hill hold" icon was obscured by the wheel. I picked up my 2022 yesterday (jun-20), and I find the yoke wonderful. First of all the hill hold icon, overlays the speedometer, how...

    Waiting Room: Model X Plaid Only

    I picked up my new X yesterday, June-20. It has the swivel screen, and I like it a lot. Would I have rejected if it did not have it? Hard to say, glad I did not have to make that decision. VIN NF3450xx.

    Cruise Control and AP... kicking a dead horse

    Have you tried re-calibrating the autopilot cameras? I've heard that can improve things if your cameras are out of whack. It did not do much for me, but all of my phantom braking problems ended long ago. Current software recently raised the upper limit to 85.

    Cruise Control and Autopilot Suddenly Decelerates

    Any chance this could be a false read of a speed limit sign? I've noticed that if a speed limit and a truck speed limit are placed side by side, my car will sometimes read the lower truck speed limit. It can 10 - 15 mph slower, the car slows pretty rapidly when that happens

    FSD Beta Performance Summary after Two Weeks

    IMO, it is too high maintenance to be practical. It generally works, and each version gets better for sure. But it doesn't detect road surface anomalies (pot holes), and we still have tons of those. Part of the problem, is the route choices it makes are often quite dumb. If it weren't for...

    Liquid Tight Conduit with 4awg for wall charger

    The voltage at my car when idle is roughly 250, dropping to around 235 when pulling 48 amps. Might go lower if the (house) air conditioning is running. Most of that voltage drop is due to the #2 wire feeding my whole house, roughly 120 feet from the utility pole. 2 gauge is standard for aerial...

    I did not search out much after locating my car. But most of them were white. White is likely the most popular color, w black interior, mainly because that is only no extra charge combination. Originally, I was blue/cream, but I made a decision to wrap the car, so why pay extra for something I...

    Bummer. Mine, also now set for 6/20, was actually advanced a day because it came in early. So I went over to the SC to see if I could find it on the lot.

    How to increase range on MX?

    it changes the default, but you can manually turn tow mode off. 365 wh/mile is quite high for modest speeds (60-ish). In my 2018, I am usually below 300. A 2022 should be much better than that (I am expecting 250ish). If your readings are true, I‘d get an alignment. You might also want to...

    LR Model X 2022 doesn’t turn off! Help needed!

    My 2018 does not go in to “off” mode until I exit the vehicle and walk away from it with the key in my pocket. I set the horn to chirp, and the mirrors to fold in (except in the winter) as well. It will be interesting how the new car behaves with the new lock modes offered.

    LR Model X 2022 doesn’t turn off! Help needed!

    Teslas never totally turn off. The onboard computers always run, as does the cellular radio and theft protection. there actually is quite a bit stuff that runs continuously forever, and why suggested practice is always leave them plugged in when not in use.

    How to increase range on MX?

    The first thing I would do, is get a top quality wheel alignment. I have been told, the cars are not machine aligned coming out of the factory. A good alignment job will optimize your energy usage. Also make sure they are inflated properly, slightly high pressure might help. What is your...

    Absolutely. The beltway around my city is 52 miles for the full loop. Depending on what they are trying to troubleshoot, they may have to make multiple trips. Although driving around is not a particularly great use of time for a warranty repair. It happens, it’s rare, but it is not never.

    Actually, that is not true. When the batteries are charging, you can see charge action on the main display. If the battery is already charged to your set limit, it will not charge further. Yet all accessories may be in use, and the battery not charging. If you increase the charge limit while...
