    X-Care Experiences

    I need to purchase the ESA by the end of the month or get X-Care and I'm curious what people's experiences have been with X-Care and with any claims they have had.

    P90D Owners - What Is Your Wh/mile and 90% Rated Range?

    When I first got my P90DL I drove 65mph with TACC on from 90% down to 10% and got 208miles with minor elevation changes and I think around 65F. My 90% rating is sitting at about 228/229, which is way down from when I did that drive. My wh/mi for 6300 miles is 416, but my commute is super...

    P90DL kills 700+ hp Ford GT.....

    I've done ~3.0s 0-60 at 51% SOC, but at like 10% it'd probably have a big impact and some cars might be able to. On a somewhat related note, I accidentally tried Sport mode for the first time a couple weeks ago... it sucks. I think Fred Flintstone would have beaten me.

    Performance of P85D with Ludicrous upgrade review

    Great job and very informative. I actually got it down to 2.81s a while back and updated the chart 0-60/30-50/50-70 comparitive times for 70D/85D/P85D I was somewhere between 85-90% and my battery was warm enough max battery did nothing. You can hit optimal temp just driving around. Max...

    90D Range slowly declining

    Im down to 231 @ 90 and 258 @ 100 Good news is I was finally able to charge to 100%. Whatever glitch there was is fixed but balancing didn't change my numbers at all. I'm gonna call the service center tomorrow and see what can be done

    Opinions after 2 months of owning my P90DL

    This is different. I've balanced batteries before and something changed like a month after I got the car where at 99% it shuts off power and unlocks the port. There's no way to balance. I've tried unplugging and plugging back in, rebooting both displays, trying other chargers, etc. I started a...

    P90D Auto Insurance

    I'm 33, single, and I have a 09 E350 and P90D full coverage, and a 95 BMW liability only. 100/300/100, $500 deductibles, loan/lease payoff, and uninsured coverage of 100/300/100. Tesla alone is 841 for 6 months, in total it is 1600 for 6 months. This is through Progressive. No tickets and two...

    p85+ vs w205 (2016 c63s)

    I haven't driven a C63, but I did consider buying one a long time ago. A friend who owns a lot of cars test drove one, not a big guy, but he said he had to open the door to adjust the seat it was so tight. That pretty much killed my interest, but he said it was an amazing car.

    Opinions after 2 months of owning my P90DL

    I'm at 234 now. I haven't made it to the SC to find out why I can't charge to 100%, but it stopping at 99% gave the same reduction in mileage as the amount I'm seeing at 90. So I think its miscalibrated right now and I can't balance because it doesn't go to 100% anymore. - - - Updated - - - I...

    Opinions after 2 months of owning my P90DL

    Sometimes at higher speeds you don't feel the torque, but it still picks up speed really fast. It's not hard to be in the 90s without much effort. I'm super busy right now so it's hard for me to suggest times, but if anyone wants to meet up and chat or go for a ride send me an email...

    90D Range slowly declining

    Can someone with a 90D or P90D try charging to 100% to balance? Shortly after I had my car I was unable to charge to 100% and my range dropped by a set percentage at both 90% and 99%. And when I say wouldn't charge to 100% I don't mean that I didn't let it sit, I mean that it shut off charging...

    Dragtimes P90D Ludicrous 0-60mph and 0-100mph video

    I can't check power for a bit. Roads are wet (I spun the wheels at 40mph last night) and I'm swamped. I wouldn't be surprised if curb weight is fully loaded, which means pano roof. As I said in another post, the MB pano roof added ~200lb years ago. If you look at comparisons of 1/4 mile...

    P85D Insane Mode with version 7 and Max Battery Power Ready Performance Testing

    The numbers I logged before were with it on. It was 455 without and 457 with. The 455 was max after several runs, and when I had enabled the mode to get 457 the fans turned on after that run. So as I've mentioned it's just about getting the heat up, which can be done by just launching several...

    P85D Insane Mode with version 7 and Max Battery Power Ready Performance Testing

    It's not just about a cold soaked battery, but just a battery that isn't at optimal temperature. From the data we have, the option is for heating the battery to a temperature for optimal performance, and even in warm and sunny CA on a warm day ~80F, it will take a while to hit optimal...

    Does anyone keep their hands on the wheel when on AP?

    I've been knitting while I drive. Making an awesome Tesla scarf for Christmas. When that's done I'm gonna work on little Tesla mittens to keep my paws warm because I didn't get the heated steering wheel and even if I did I wouldn't have my hands on it. I was going to just remove the steering...

    I didn't look at the gauge, I just remember flooring it at 30 and it feeling more responsive, but it could have been totally coincidental.

    Firmware 7.0

    I was a little worried about the UI at first, but I actually really really like it. i feel like the center of the dash is less cluttered now and at night there is less light coming off of things, which I really like. Not having trip A/B on the dash hasn't been an issue for me even though I...

    Impact of air conditioning on driving range?

    Have Photosync installed and it will make a big difference in both comfort while driving and the energy usage of the A/C I have 3M on my Mercedes and while Photosync has performed better, when I drive to San Diego it has made a huge huge difference in the trip. When I had it installed I was...

    P85D Insane Mode with version 7 and Max Battery Power Ready Performance Testing

    The difference you will see in in situations where you want the power from a cold start. Like if you could do a 0-60 out of your garage or if Brooks was doing this testing on the road outside his house. I don't know what the power consumption is if you let it sit and warm, although it would be...

    Firmware 7.0

    Tested the autopilot functionality again tonight and it handled turn lanes much better. This morning it kept leaving the constant line and going into the lane, but tonight it didn't. Coincidence maybe or it has already started getting smarter.

    Model S - Window Tinting

    Additional note about Photosync and Crystalline. They take time to set in, so you have to be careful about touching the film. for photosync it was 2 weeks, for crystalline it was like a month (hints of something about the coating on the film were mentioned when I asked why that was). Depends on...

    Lifetime Average Wh/mi

    Vicodin or Viagra... I'd expect two very different drivers haha. I can't tell if 350 is supposed to be high or low, so I don't know if you mean amped or comatose :) My drive to work is 2.5mi and without launching I'm at like 460Wh/mi each way.

    P85D Max Power Mode??

    If you launch or floor it a number of times it will be ready sooner. It's about temperature so you can make it happen faster. I think they just know people want to have max power sooner so they gave everyone an option to get it to optimal temperature without using a lot of power to do so.
  27. P

    Model S - Window Tinting

    The temperature should have been easily fixable. It was able to know what the interior temp was, but it was always off from the setting. How they made it "use less power" I have no idea.

    Model S REST API

    Ah, that's probably why. The bash scripts are going to depend on other apps. You should be able to apt-get them if you're using Debian based system or other PM depending on the distro. I'll eventually be open sourcing all my code. I have some bigger plans to make it more useful (hopefully) so...

    I had to turn my temp up. It seems to be more inline with how my Mercedes felt. 67 was cold, but 70 feels like 70 did in the MB.

    Model S - Window Tinting

    You will notice a slight purple distortion in the windshield, but you get used to it quickly. I don't even notice it anymore. I never got used to it with 3M crystalline and it was never as bad with Photosync. I wear prescription polarized sunglasses daily. I've had no problems with the...

    Model S REST API

    Depends on what you are using. All the logging I was doing was just Python and a few easily installable packages. If you're using something like VisibleTesla then you'd need Java, etc.

    Firmware 7.0

    Has anyone else noticed the improvement to A/C? When I drove it this morning it was definitely an improvement on how soon it cooled down. Wondering if it is noticeable to anyone else
  33. P

    Firmware 7.0

    Oh and the throttle response seems to be better. When I pulled out of my garage, which has a slight incline into it, it felt a lot more immediate when pulling forward. Which they mention in the release notes having been improved.

    P90D Ludicrous 1/4 mile time

    Updated to 7.0 a bit ago. When I went out it felt like it had more power, but I wasn't able to test in the same place I did before and didn't have the SD card in my PBOX. I'll get a good charge and test tomorrow night.

    Took my car out just now. Loving the auto steer and auto lane change. A few notes. * If you are in the left lane and you come near a turning lane it loses the left line and instead of holding to the right line it will drift and last minute catch up. * It has the same problem on the...

    Model S - Window Tinting

    Probably late to chime in since it went in yesterday, but the heat rejection of something like Photosync makes a huge difference. Just having my window all the way up vs cracked when driving with the sun to the side is night and day. I had every piece of glass tinted and glad I did. As for the...

    I don't know that I know that much about it. I'm just really analytical and I remember way too much (it's a curse trust me). sorka and fiksegts and several others definitely know way more. I just try to share what I can.

    Dragtimes P90D Ludicrous 0-60mph and 0-100mph video

    I'm aware that horsepower plays a role in reaching certain times. However, it is not the only factor. A R8 V10 Plus has a 0-60 of 3.2s, 11.3s 1/4, 1400lb lighter, 610hp @ 8200rpms. A P90D has a 0-60 of 2.8s, 612hp (if you simply convert 456kW). So how does 2hp and 1400lb heavier make a -0.4s...

I'm sorry that people are upset, I really am, it sucks when you don't get what you expected and I understand it's a touchy topic for many. I'm...
