    I’m amazed when people buying a mid or high end Tesla balk at EAP features. I remember the days when the “tech package” on any car was 5-7k. I use auto lane change and NoAP every single day I drive the car, and on trips it’s a game changer. As always, do whatever fits your preference but it...

    Waiting Room: Model X 7 Seat ONLY

    I’m in Italy and had to switch from cash to finance (which Tesla did 24 hours after an email to the orders email address). Did all the paperwork online and then did final payment / accepted delivery entirely remote. They texted me when the car was dropped off. I have security cameras at home, so...

    There was no person who was around to stop the process. They just drop the car off and leave it. So all the documentation was done electronically. The trade-in is probably what will complicate it for you.

    We already had international travel planned during the delivery window and are near the factory. As suspected, our delivery got scheduled but I had already prepared a Power of Attorney for someone. In the end, it didn’t matter because we got Tesla to do a home delivery (they seemed to want to...

    I got VIN’d and am obviously a very early order, so the least profitable imaginable. Quarter end FTW. Downside is I’m drinking a Negroni in Piazzi Vecchi in Florence so am jumping through hoops to finish a June 25th delivery from Fremont when I’m not actually there. But the Negroni is delicious...

    Not really. Tesla often issues VINs out of sequence. Of course, a VIN has a model year in it but that’s for the whole year.

    How low are you comfortable going on range estimator on a trip?

    I pulled into the Wilcox, AZ Supercharger with 0 miles once. I wouldn’t recommend it as a practice, but if you are actively monitoring the car’s energy use and adjusting your driving then the car’s Consumption screen is pretty accurate. In our case, the only Supercharger between El Paso (where...

    Use voice control and say “open energy monitor” (or something like that). It will open the energy graph. For some reason, it’s not (yet) in the UI but it’s there in the software.

    We're potentially in that exact situation. If we end up out of the country, I will be providing power of attorney to my father so he can do the pickup. The risk is that there are issues with the car that he won't detect, but that's low risk because my father is super anal retentive about cars...

    The appropriate response when a cop has pulled you over and then informs you they aren’t going to cite you is “Thank you so much, officer.” Questioning the validity of their “decision” is a fool’s errand. Getting into an argument with a cop is bringing a knife to a gun fight. Once you have a...

    Nobody was forced to change their configuration. Tesla offered it, and some people accepted it. The caveat is that Tesla included the promise of 2021 delivery but then didn't do it for a lot of people. I'm still glad to have declined the change and just wait it out.

    I do hope TACC and lane positioning is improved over time. The car could do much better at positioning itself depending on the context. For example, if I am in stop-and-go traffic and in the left most lane, the car should hug the left side of the lane. Instead, it wants to always center itself...

    Typical. Our Dec - April just went to June 15 - July 27. We are going to Europe from June 15th to July 2nd. I just know they’re gonna want to deliver to us before end of Q2 as we’re close to the factory. Hmmm.

    They don’t use it in California because it’s not legally permitted, but they are using it in the other states where they offer insurance. You can still see your score in the app, although if you share the car it’s not particularly relevant.

    Yes, because FUSC was explicitly something that went to the first owner. That was in the paperwork. FSD goes with the car. I'm not sure, but I believe the first year of Premium Connectivity also goes with the car and not the owner. EDIT: Actually, I just checked that and FUSC also transfers...

    Tesla does not remove FSD from a car sold through a third party. They apparently have done it when they take / buy back the car and resell it, but if they deactivated FSD on a car that never passed through their hands then that would be illegal.

    Sorry to dig up this thread after a few months, but anyone who fixed it (or got it fixed) can you explain exactly how it was fixed? I’ve had this issue on my 2018.

    Very likely they’ve done the analysis so that the mix of deliveries for these older orders are spread out. If the quarter is on track to do well, then a little hit with delivering older priced orders can be absorbed.

    You can't buy reservations. Telsa won't transfer them. The reservation holder would have to complete the purchase and then resell the car to you.

    Isn't that fee what Tesla charges if you do the FSD subscription but have to pay a one time upgrade fee if the car still has HW 2.5?

    This is not my experience at all. I typically see the car stating that I can continue the trip when it projects that the car will arrive with about 10% SOC.

    Having recently done a FL to AZ trip in a M3, it's definitely the food choices that were the only negative. Stopping to charge was no big deal. Driving was super easy with AP.

    If you have an existing auto insurance policy, most states give you that window (usually 30 days but I have a vague memory that it's 7 days in California) to add a vehicle to the policy that you have legally acquired. If you have an incident during that window, the car is considered covered.
  34. focher

    Refreshed 2021+ Model X and Model X Plaid waiting room

    Kinda. You are legally required to have auto insurance, but you have the 30 days to add the specific vehicle to the policy. I'm pretty sure Tesla requires the proof of insurance to be provided before you can take delivery.

    It protects the areas most prone to rock chips while driving. It's rather smart, as the PPF on my Model 3 looks bad on top of the rock chips I had on the front bumper when it got wrapped. It's why almost everyone takes their freshly delivered car straight to the wrap place.

    This is highly doubtful. Taking delivery of any car in California triggers unrecoverable state sales tax. A buyer would need Tesla to go along with the premise that the original sales transaction negates the California rule. Even if you got Tesla to agree, would any sane person trust them to...
