    Idaho Waiting Room

    Jeebus! That sucks! I am sorry about that! I am a little terrified about my parking in the garage as there is a lot of in and out, and due to the location of my plug, my wife's driver door opens toward the passenger side of my car. She has a Mazda CX-5, similar width car, and there is not...

    Audiophile Question - FLAC 24/96 Playback

    My DAC is a Mytek Brooklyn DAC+. My streamer is a BlueSound Node, and I have a couple different iterations of that around the house. I think the Mytek is clearer to my ears when I hook it to the already fairly decent Nodes. The tubes are in a Schiit Freya+ pre-amp, and add a bit of warmth and...

    CCS Adapter - ?

    Yeah, I think they could program the proximity sensors to help with that more specifically. Getting the hang of it and the information you can see on the screen now a little better, getting in and out of the garage. Loving my new rig so far! My CCS from Korea will get here one of these days I...

    CCS Adapter - ?

    Given the shortness of the SuperCharger cables, it would be nice also, as I have one damaged eye and reduced depth perception, to have the camera and screen tell you when you are close enough. Yes, more idiot proofness. But helpful I would think. The first time I charged at a SuperCharger...

    Audiophile Question - FLAC 24/96 Playback

    My analog system at home would’ve been considered the lower range of high end or high range of mid-fi. And has some modern enhancements including a really good DAC, nice modern tube pre-amp and a good streamer. And as said, decently high analog inputs that might be considered vintage now. And...

    Audiophile Question - FLAC 24/96 Playback

    I play vinyl when I want a certain sound that some better vinyl recordings have, and when I want to have the experience of playing the large physical media, looking at the album art and reading the liner notes, etc whilst sitting down to listen, etc.. Now I am not talking 10k tables with 10k...

    ‘ I think that might be what my friend has at his place in Seattle. Looks similar. Different cars though. ;)

    Idaho Waiting Room

    I discovered that and now will have a 10-30 I will rarely use, unless I return it. I will order the EVSE TT-30 for what I really need.

    Campsite experiences: is 14-50 or TT-30 more common?

    Nice! Will get one for sure. Curious what pulling your cute teardrop does to your range? Care to share? DM or here. Thanks!!

    Front motor temporarily disabled?

    With all due respect, it is fine if you think that is good enough, but it is not for me. It is different needing to stop your car, get out and get back in, in order for the vehicle to do its basic function, operate with all motors, in extreme mountain and desert temps. It is a real issue...

    Front motor temporarily disabled?

    Also, why would a software issue only affect some cars and not others? That doesn’t make sense to me unless it is also a hardware issue of some kind.,

    Front motor temporarily disabled?

    Well, I reported it, and my SA got right back to me, and we power cycled it, and it went away. If it comes back, it is of record, within 2 days, and under 72 hours, from having picked up the car, and the car is going in. I live in the mountains of Idaho, hours from the nearest service center...

    @SirSycho Bummer! I also, after only like what, 2 days? Got my first scratch. Self inflicted. Got too close to Data (so I can tell him to “Make it so” using voice commands, with my bike as I was wheeling it out of the garage and lightly touched a pedal to the passenger rear wheel well. Got...

    Did yours get fixed?

    Front motor temporarily disabled?

    This is my situation, perhaps 48 hours of ownership. And why I am hear reading to see WTF is going on. Hoping it is a glitch and not a thing. Read up through your post so far. Will keep reading. I called Tesla right away and ignored the set up a service appointment via the app, and talked...

    Holy crap Tidal makes the audio system come ALIVE.

    Oh, and then that motivates me to download music and also have music on my big flash drive has that will give me options too I guess. .

    Holy crap Tidal makes the audio system come ALIVE.

    Cool on the home gear and blue Blue! And yes, that means I will need to get adept at creating that iPhone hotspot and just be in the habit of doing it. Kind of a pain it just won’t reestablish itself but maybe that will correct itself over time. Meanwhile, doesn’t help to bitch about it just...

    Holy crap Tidal makes the audio system come ALIVE.

    And @Zacster This IS interestIng. In the nerdy vintage audio groups I have belonged to, some folks use good, originally high end, older CD players or even high end DVD/DVD/SACD players, with Sony transports being mentioned often even if branded differently (Oppo used Sony guts apparently) and...

    Car Camping in RV sites?

    I have heard, and read on some RV campground websites, that EV charging is not included and that they will charge you an upcharge. Anyone run into this yet? What kind of upcharge did your run into, if so?

    Campsite experiences: is 14-50 or TT-30 more common?

    Reviewing this again to make sure I have the adapters I might need. Will probably still order the tt-30 from EVSE for when it comes back in, just for a sense of security out there. Will still be in for less than the full Tesla adapter kit, and should be well covered based on the discussion in...

    Cleaning Off Dead Insects

    I didn't see any at O'Reilly's and they wanted me to use some Goo Gone, which I did not want to use. First set of bugs on my brand new car, just from the drive home from Boise to Hailey (100+ miles through Idaho, so bugs. I am getting PPF at least on the front). So, I came home and found I...

    Idaho Waiting Room

    And I also found the 10-30 I have seen at some RV places is in stock from Tesla.com, so went ahead and got that one too. Just in case I am camped overnight somewhere. I have needed such an adapter for my camper before in travels between ID, MT, OR, and WA. So I would rather just have it in the...

    The dealer has them in Boise, so will just grab mine there. Cheers!

    Blue Model Y waiting room

    Pick up/Delivery day went well out here in Idaho! I love the color and look, and most everything was well in spec and seemed well fitted. One plastic headlight lens was a bit wonky, but the service center fixed that right away and quickly. I love the color!

    Hey, yeah, if Tesla Boise doesn’t have one (I have a text in to Liberty now to check) I will take you up on that. Will DM once I know.

    CCS Adapter - ?

    Just got an email that my adapter got delayed. LOL! Tesla stuff. But not by Tesla the company this time.

    November Orders

    I am sorry for you all being bumped. That sucks. I do not say this to gloat, but my delivery day went really well, and I am super happy with the car so far. Hopefully your delivery dates will come soon or be adjusted sooner as supplies and production comes online. They are nice rigs.

    Holy crap Tidal makes the audio system come ALIVE.

    That would be for streaming, right? Probably not an issue if you have previously downloaded tunes at higher quality via WiFi at home, I would think and think I have read here.
  29. Sunvalleylaw

    Holy crap Tidal makes the audio system come ALIVE.

    Just got my car. The sound system just logged into my Tidal sounded decent, but not like home. Will need to find the posts on how to use the hotspot and try that to hear the difference.

    Idaho Waiting Room

    I am used to two versions of old Alfa Romeo steering and suspensions. One from a ‘76 GTV and one from a ‘71 Berlina. Alfa made good sport sedan and coupe (and convertible) suspensions for the time. Running gear, gear box/tranny, and motors are what Alfa did well, along with design. The Y...

    Idaho Waiting Room

    Went for a quick night spin to check out the lights. At one point, the left fender camera said it was blocked. but that seemed to clear. Will watch that. Lights are so much better than my old cars. I also set the steering to "sport" tonight, and think I like it. I will go back and forth...

    Idaho Waiting Room

    Yes, I forgot to ask. Will call tomorrow, as we are passing through Boise again on Friday, and have them hold one for me if they do. Otherwise guess I will go with the EVES

    Idaho Waiting Room

    One other wrinkle. the 14-50 adapters, and adapter kits were out when I looked a few weeks back, and then I forgot. And now they are out too. I am charging just via the regular old plug for now, and am not really going anywhere for a few days, or could charge down in Hailey at Chargepoint if...

    Idaho Waiting Room

    Oh, and the autopilot is still configuring/calibrating, which Liberty told me was going to happen, as it had 4 miles on it, and needed some more time. I forgot to ask how long that took. So I called Tesla on the way home and the guy congratulated me seemingly sincerely, and said it should sort...

    Idaho Waiting Room

    So far things have gone well! I went point by point off an inspection thing I found online (Ryan Shaw had it linked to a video, and you could get an app. I preferred to print it out as I knew I would be excited, and wouldn't want to look at my phone and scroll, but would want to have a...

    Idaho Waiting Room

    Well, scrap that. I ended up getting a cashier's check. My relatively new US Bank account wasn't playing nice online, so didn't get it set up and connected with the Tesla app. So, will be taking care with the cashier's checking instead.

    Idaho Waiting Room

    Finishing my final payment this afternoon, which I decided to do via the app, rather than go down to the bank and pull a certified check I have to keep track of on the way over from Hailey to Boise (not a huge deal, but still makes me nervous), and also save myself the time at the bank...

    That's how I was, and then it finally happened just all of a sudden. Fingers crossed for you!

    November Orders

    As I think back, if people with the basic white over black are getting EDD's in the range of August to September, that seems like about the same delay that existed at the time I ordered for the "basic" build with Gemini wheels, white, black interior. But just working off memory. I think I am...
  40. Sunvalleylaw

    November Orders

    That is pretty consistent with what I vaguely remember as the difference in EDD time that existed in early November as between White/Black very stock orders, and spending up for a different color. You will get there! Hang in there!
  41. Sunvalleylaw

    November Orders

    At the time I ordered, if I recall correctly, it seemed like colors other than White, Black interior, were receiving better initial EDD's. I went for the Deep Blue I wanted anyway. Wondering if the white over black is affecting some of the lingering orders still that have not received either...

    November Orders

    I am scheduled to take delivery tomorrow for my November 10 evening order that showed up in the system November 11. Hoping you other November folks start getting your VIN’s too if you have not yet!

    Holy crap Tidal makes the audio system come ALIVE.

    Well, that is great news and something I missed! Would you please direct me to where I find that in the Tidal menus/options? Will very much enjoy that feature. I had used some third part app before to try and move playlists from Spotify over to Tidal, but it wasn’t that great. Your points...

    Idaho Waiting Room

    Ok, I will need to figure out what that means for me with my Samsung I plan to partition and use for music and camera stuff. Plenty big enough drive, 2T, but just will need to know where to stow it. I guess the glove box it is unless I do that mod. That is a really disappointing change that...

    Idaho Waiting Room

    Yep, I know the plates go with the person part. I just won't be trading anything in or selling anything. And yeah, our little DMV in Hailey is the easiest DMV experience I have ever had so no reason not to just go in and do it. With used cars I have purchased, they have always come out and...

    Idaho Waiting Room

    Mine will be a new plate, as I don't have one to transfer. It is funny, the questions I come up with when it is the first new car I have ever purchased in all these years! Never, ever, not had a used car. LOL! Liberty at Tesla Team Boise got back to me and said I would just get my plates...

    Idaho Waiting Room

    Hey, I had a nearing last minute thought. I normally like to use either the Idaho Ski or Mountain Bike plates. Thinking MTB on this one. Do I need to do anything special with Tesla for the registration if that is what I want to do? I also put a text into the SA Boise team to ask but figured...

    Congrats!! @Coachrich , I hope that gets sorted out soon! Maybe contact someone and ask them to look at it?
