    Refreshed 2021+ Model X and Model X Plaid waiting room

    Question for the experienced: I ordered an MXP on 6/6/2022 and was assigned a VIN on 6/24. It was a relatively older VIN (339xxx). I went to the SC and ask for the VIN to be unassigned which they did with no issues. I noticed today that the account says that delivery is on hold till July 1...

    Waiting Room: Model X Plaid Only

    They know. But they are also looking at historical trends of payout for different vehicles. A lot of factors there involve the demographics of the owners of the different vehicles as well. They aren't in the business of losing money. They know what you got. :)

    That's FSD only, unfortunately. I have FSD on our MYP and really like that feature. But I did not pay $12k for FSD this time around.

    When is ultra Long Range battery coming?

    In Jan of this year, I drove from Houston to Atlanta and back. It was terrible weather for EV efficiency: temps were in the 30's with strong winds in the 15-20mph range almost the entire way. That's a range killer if there ever is one. I was traveling with a pregnant wife and an 18 month...

    Has you driven with falcon wing doors open and had an accident?

    The Chrysler Pacifica does not allow the rear sliding doors to open unless in park. There are a few threads on the Pacifica forum of people complaining about this. Why? Because when they are in line picking up their kids, they can't simply open the door to let them in. They have to put the...

    Refreshed 2021/2022 Model X Owners Thread

    There are two hooks in the model x. Per the manual: Your Model X has a coat hanger on each side of the vehicle above the rear window in the second row, next to the reading light. Push the coat hanger to release it. Push it again to retract it.

    Walk up unlock, how do you know?

    @chnry is correct. It unlocks when you pull the handle, then it unfolds the mirror etc. You really don't (or I really don't) want it to just unlock when you are close by... what if one just walked by and didn't intend to unlock, but the car unlocks and some asshat goes into the car and take...

    I just saw a video on a refreshed X and it's FWD didn't flap. I am thinking it's probably deliberate to reduce wear and tear on the FWD?

    Model X Shudder Problem - Questions about DIY and recommendations

    Can't help with #1 and #3, but for #2 you are doing a wheel alignment. You don't have to go to Tesla to do this, you can take it to any shop that does alignment. Although, like most services, not all alignment shops are created equal so you'd probably what find a shop that others have recommended.

    Trip Planner problems

    It sounds like you are already on the road? The thing is, each time you punch in the destination, it calculations from that moment, based on the charge you have, on how best to get to the destination. It's a navigation tool that happens to tell you when to charge and not really a planning tool...

    This is pretty common on white pearl colored cars and it's not just a Tesla problem. It is because of material... but sometimes it comes out better than other times. It's sort of hit and miss it would seem. My MYP has a VERY VERY slight color mismatch that I can detect depending on lighting...

    Portable Generator Recommendations for Road Trip from California to Alaska

    You would want an inverter generator if you want clean power... but I don't think any of them have a 14-50r... at least not any I've seen. If you are ok with a max of 30amp max, then the Predator 9500 from Harbor Freight is good. I am a Honda guy, but it's hard to justify 2X the cost for an...

    Detroit to Boston in Model Y LR

    ABRP I find is a great tool for planning. It’s actually very accurate, especially if you have premium subscription and it can read real time. What I like about ABRP for planning is that with the premium subscription, it will factor in weather forecast for the planned trip, giving me a better...

    Does Tesla Nav consider elevation change when computing charging stops?

    I guess I don’t understand what you disagree with. The car does in fact factor in elevation. That’s been proven above. What you have not told us about your drive is weather conditions (temp and wind), speeds you drove, the load you had, and your driving habits. The formula you suggest is...

    The plastic tub of the frunk is not attached to the firewall. There's a good 18" between that tub and the firewall. In addition to that, there's a bunch of other noise making items attached to the firewall that is more likely to make noise that leaks into the cabin. Take off the top plastic...

    Tesla Frunk Noise Dampener

    I don’t see how it would impact sound inside cabin. It’s not like the frunk is connected directly to the cabin. I think it looks nice but I doubt it does anything for cabin sound reduction. Maybe inside the frunk itself, which I guess is what it advertises itself as “frunk noise reduction”.

    Having second thoughts about MYP after VIN assigned, open to ideas

    Ride quality is super subjective. I have zero problems with our MYP ride and neither does my pregnant wife. It IS a firm ride and it isn't for everyone. If you drive on broken roads often, it might not be the best fit. FWIW, I just went on a 2,000 mile road trip with my pregnant wife and 22...

    Preserving Battery Best Practices
