    MYP totaled 2 days before delivery

    A tough situation, but see if you can get them to confirm *in writing* that they will (a) respect the original financial terms when the replacement car becomes available and (b) provide a "date certain" after which they will refund the payment (if you want that as an option). The "in writing"...

    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    I was replying to @ggr 's comment - until this gets fixed or patched (e.g., adding a requirement for a PIN or app intervention to add a key card), don't give them your car if you're concerned about this.

    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    When did you get yours? It's working fine in my March build LR using the same microSD card I've been using in my pre-AP 2014. I only had to buy a USB-C/microSD adapter to fit the console USB-C sockets.

    Supercharger - Robertsdale, AL

    The Supercharger is located as in the second picture, in the southeast corner. First time I used the SuC, I entered at the southwest corner and YOLO'd my way around and through the traffic cones that are used to guide traffic into the southeast entrance. The second time, I came from eastbound...

    Supercharger - Robertsdale, AL

    I charged there twice earlier this month. Although they were doing land office business both times, I didn't have any particular difficulty getting into or out of the lot.

    A restorative for our vapor-locked compadres: "Why does the left haste Elon Musk? It’s simple, really: Because he can’t be controlled, and because he doesn’t tolerate BS." The left hates Elon Musk because he’s a twin threat that doesn’t tolerate BS

    "In 2013, Fetterman pursued a man and pulled a shotgun on him because he wrongly believed the man, who turned out to be a Black jogger, had been involved in a shooting. While the incident has long loomed over Fetterman’s campaign, it’s been particularly amplified by his opponents as the May 17...

    Change only one tire? NTB won't do it

    A palm frond caused a sidewall puncture on my right front snow tire on a trip to Houston. Timing was an issue - we were planning to drive back north the next day - and there were (obviously) no Pirelli snow tires to be found in Houston. Discount Tire had absolutely no objection to replacing it...

    Battery Damaged After Hitting Tow Hitch

    This exact sort of accident resulted in one of the first heavily-publicized Model S battery module fires. After it happened, Tesla added titanium plate armor to the front underside of the original Model S pack to reduce the risk of penetration damage to the battery cells that caused thermal...

    How do you listen to music in your Tesla?

    My 2022 Model S was delivered on March 4, and the media player sees and works perfectly with a USB-C/microSD adapter plugged into the center console socket. The glove box USB-A socket has the Tesla 128GB thumb drive in it. My 2014 P85's center console USB slots also worked this way. A Model...

    2021+ Model S LR Delivery Tracking

    My 3/4/2022 delivery was updated to 2022.8.2 yesterday. I changed the update option to 'Advance' before leaving the SC parking lot, to no apparent effect. Then, a couple of days ago, I just mashed that option back and forth several times. I have no idea whether that triggered the update, but...

    Cannot invite driver

    Exactly what I did, and the advisor was able to get it sorted out the next business day. FWIW, I provided the other Tesla account's user id in a text note on the trouble ticket. I don't know if the advisor forced that user id into the system or just "activated" the pending invitation...

    Cannot invite driver

    Good to hear, as I've run into the same error. I'd done this successfully for another driver a year ago using the web page procedure, so I was really surprised to get that error dialog when I did it from within the iOS app. It was doubly unuseful that all of the help links (in-car and web...

    2021+ Model S LR Delivery Tracking

    Just a follow-up to you and other Michigan buyers - check the registration fee on your Motor Vehicle Purchase Agreement to make sure that it accounts correctly for the state practice of scheduling registration renewal on the owner's birthday and not date of sale. In my case, they charged $621...

    2021+ Model S LR Delivery Tracking

    Thanks! Yes, I got all seasons -- I (very politely) mentioned that they'd be storing the car in GR if I saw summers on it... Some of the service guys are Yoopers (or at least Yooper-familiar), so they understood.

    2021+ Model S LR Delivery Tracking

    RN1152, EDD 4/1-4/30, and then... BOOM! Red/black/19" LR, VIN 472, built date 2/11/22... and picked up yesterday at the Grand Rapids, MI SC. Beautiful build, missing only the package shelf. Plenty of RTFM needed to transition from our pre-AP P85, but what a pleasure to drive!

    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    Same here - three 5-digit front-end "rearrangements" (Prius, light pole, deer) in eight years, all covered by their or my State Farm insurance, and no increase in premium resulting from the claims.

    2021+ Model S LR Delivery Tracking

    Same here... EDD for my RN1152 was pushed on Thursday from late March to April 1-30 (grumbles, shrugs) and then I got THE CALL the next day about my Red/Black/19 which was already on the train to Chicago! Makes sense to assume that someone else's loss is my gain. Glad this happened...

    2017 MS: Need help buying new (Continental?) TPMS sensors for extra set of snow tires/rims

    These "generic" sensors work in my early 2014 P85 that had received the newer Continental TPMS upgrade. The tire store had to program them during install so that they know what sort of system they're talking to. Cost me $50/each.

    Chuckle - yeah, here's another Michigan guy who had that conversation in early December with an EDD range now of 3/20-3/31. I also made it clear that my expectations were that the car have all-weather tires and be impeccable, the latter because it's roughly an 8-hour round trip to the Service...

    Snowy Driving Resulting In Lots Of Water In Garage

    "Ticking" from contact between sunroof and gasket - annoying as hell!

    I get squeaks from the small metal clip at the front center of the sunroof on my '14 P85. The Service Centers fixed it by applying layers of UHMW "anti-squeak tape" on the top surface of the clip, but it wears out eventually. After the last tech showed me what to do, I bought a roll of the tape...

    TPMS retrofit for older Model S

    Trying to get this done for my mid-March 2014 P85, and the SC seems to be having some difficulty getting the harness. The Service bulletin says that some cars were built with connectors on the car’s RH built-in wiring harness that eliminate the need for the (weird) TPMS retrofit harness. I’d...

    Tesla approved body shops refusing cars with State Farm

    Three episodes on my 2014 Model S — Prius, light pole, deer, all on the front end — all insured by State Farm, and no issues beyond waiting for parts for any of them. The Prius hit me two months after I got the car and was also a State Farm customer - SF covered the damages and even paid off my...
