    Vendor Tesla Exclusive Air Freshener Only for Model 3 and Y

    😄 I appreciate the long term update on this. I guess you also fill us in on how long each puck lasts and whether it's been consistent. It's weird/unfortunate that you can't just get refills.

    Everything wrong with V11 update / user interface.

    I've been vocal about the shortcomings of V11 and of the areas that have been worse than V10. I've also recognized some of the fixes that subsequent updates have trickled in. But it's interesting to see other manufacturers coming into similar issues as well. In BMW's latest iDrive 8, I just...

    Everything wrong with V11 update / user interface.

    I'm not familiar with the bug you're referring to.

    Everything wrong with V11 update / user interface.

    There is hope coming!! The level of complaints must've done some good.. With Tesla update 2022-12 you can add seat heaters, wipers and more to the launcher

    Any owners that have owned both the black and the white interiors? Have questions

    Lots of Scandinavian vibes there with the white and wood combo. Pretty cool.

    Taptes Model 3 Red Seat Covers (Amazing)

    I’m more smitten by the glimpse of the bright red E46 you got there 😍

    Is it okay to replace door puddle lights?

    I got my puddle lights from Abstract Ocean: "T" logos for the front doors and bright leds for the rear doors. The only problem I have is that the rear door puddle lamps turn on ONLY IF the front door on the same side is CLOSED. So if the front door is opened (with the "T" logo lamp on), opening...

    Car Colorizer Allows You to Customize The Looks of Your Tesla

    This is a such a much better usage of software developer and interface engineer resources than addressing widely known UI complaints.

    Sentry Mode Viewer Buggy

    I've also tried various different high-quality drives. Seems like the Tesla thumb drive has worked the "best" so far anecdotally. But I put "best" in quotes because I still come across the same issues as you do. It's pretty buggy indeed, and has been so since day 1.

    Color navigation map?

    They should've just offered wireless Apple Carplay and Android Auto and just be done with it. They can keep the stock map for finding charging stations or something.

    Everything wrong with V11 update / user interface.

    It's been pretty clear that V11 has been another step towards taking control away from drivers' hands, with defenders telling us that once self driving is here, it won't be distracting any longer to have to click a few more things than before to access most commonly used functions. Does it look...

    What do you all think is the best ceramic coating?

    I went with Gloss It EVO Quartz. I forget whether it’s 7H or 9H. This was about a year after.

    Repeater camera issues. Blinkers seen on screen when flashing.

    So is it just the trim that is different between the older and newer blinkers/cameras (chrome vs black) or were there actual changes to the cameras themselves as well. Seems like the latter, but just curious if anyone knows for sure.

    Vendor Tesla Exclusive Air Freshener Only for Model 3 and Y

    Let us know what you think. I'm apprehensive about floral or fruity notes in general when it comes to car air fresheners. I refer something more akin to new car smell, leather, or something woodsy.

    Anyone tried the "Active Exhaust" systems?

    Excuse you guys.. you know what Tesla owners want? Optional engine sounds? No! How crude! Sci-fi inspired noises? No no.. *chuckle* grow up! I've got it, I know what we all want and need. We want the option to blast ice cream truck jingles when we drive. Oooohh Yaasssss we do. - My...

    Everything wrong with V11 update / user interface.

    Repeated presses of your selected audio source button (e.g., radio, Spotify, etc.) will cycle between full screen, minimal screen, and no screen. Selecting the left circled icon alternates the option between half-screen and minimal screen. So you hit it once, and now thereafter when you hit the...

    Everything wrong with V11 update / user interface.

    I have the same shortcuts, except Spotify over radio. Still wish I had the full climate functions on the main screen though.

    Anyone tried the "Active Exhaust" systems?

    Other than the reversing beeps, that Taycan admittedly sounds pretty sweet! I'm fine with nicely tuned exhaust sounds (stock or aftermarket) on big engine sporty cars - music to my ears. But fart can exhausts on 4cyl Civics and such.. *barf.*
  19. Jclboston

    Everything wrong with V11 update / user interface.

    I prefer interfaces that improve as well, but V11 would not fall into that category. Many things are worse, including making some functions that are often used while driving objectively less convenient to use. At the same time, V11 makes it possible for the user to customize a bar with functions...

    Everything wrong with V11 update / user interface.

    As a workaround to this issue, I had left it on satellite view months ago instead, which had worked better for me. I agree the normal night time map view is not very good. Not enough contrast with all the various grays.
  21. Jclboston

    Everything wrong with V11 update / user interface.

    Yes, right, the comments in the video are only applicable for model 3. I don't have a perspective on the other unique issues that model S/X users are experiencing with V11.. but at least you get gauge cluster..
  22. Jclboston

    Everything wrong with V11 update / user interface.

    This guy does a really good job of compiling many of the issues / fixes needed with V11. Frankly, I wonder if he’s on this forum and on this thread. For some extra fun, try to watch this while pretending to be someone unfamiliar with Tesla. You’ll likely come away with a reaction of “what in the...

    Regen braking reduced?

    I think I got the reduced regen braking warning a day or so ago, so I don't think it's been eliminated. I really like how more and more of the newer EVs are using paddle shifters to let drivers select the desired regen braking strength.

    Pillar camera blocked message….

    It sounds like a vision-only system is as bad of an idea as some people had worried it to be.

    Everything wrong with V11 update / user interface.

    I had actually stopped using the Tesla for about a week now in lieu of other options since I was so annoyed with the changes. I used it for a few errands last night, and other the core driving part of the experience, it was honestly again, a pretty annoying experience. I switch between Spotify...

    Everything wrong with V11 update / user interface.

    Alright alright… in an effort to be more positive, I do have one good thing to say about V11. My charge port no longer automatically closes immediately after pressing the “open” button on the screen, which it had kept doing after a previous recent update and made the button useless. So now with...

    Everything wrong with V11 update / user interface.

    When you’ve got a mf-ing 15” screen to work with, no warnings or indicators should be blocking other functions. That’s just horrible UI.

    Midnight Silver Metallic with Aero wheels without caps?

    I think the aeros without caps look much better than the *newer* 19's that are flatter than the versions from 2020 and prior.

    Poll on V11 interface

    I think I’ve given the UI a fair shot over the course of several days now, trying not to be over-reactionary to the challenges of the changes. I thought maybe that some of the changes would just get some time to get used to. However, overall, I must say that most of the complaints expressed so...

    Poll on V11 interface

    It’s also wonderful when trying to use voice command in an area with poor internet connection and getting the notice that voice command isn’t available at the moment.

    How urgent is "12V battery degraded" warning?

    What is it that is different about Model S battery? Do we just get shittier batteries?

    Front end damage… totaled?

    So basically Statefarm sucks big time, duly noted. Did you ask them for the Patrick Price or the Rodgers Rate? Also, how convenient for their formula to exclude electronics, THE thing that has become more and more prominent, complex, and expensive in modern vehicles. Also also.. how vaguely or...

    Can't get over this new dashboard

    I'm too distracted by how nasty your steering wheel is.. why is it so glossy/oily? :oops:

    Model 3 driver's seat adjustment - can it be adjusted to go further back ?

    I'd say go all out! Remove the front passenger seat altogether, put a table there instead, and sit in the back :)
  35. Jclboston

    Thinking of placing the order...wanted expert insight.

    I'll briefly comment on #1, though I do not have experience w/ Model Y. No one really sits in the back of my Model 3, but it's very upright and the floor is high, which may not be very comfortable. I don't know how that compares to the Y, but if backseat passenger comfort is really important to...

    Missing USB Ports

    This is more so the point than anything else. If this is similar to any other car forum I've been a part of, then we can assume that [active] forum members are just a relatively low fraction of all owners. How many new owners not regularly plugged into this forum or Reddit are readily aware of...

    MrJeep, I think you may have missed that my comment was clearly (?) sarcastic. Signed, A fellow d-bag

    Missing USB Ports

    This is good. Should it be worth asking if there is anything else that may be missing that had not been proactively communicated?
  39. Jclboston

    Missing USB Ports

    Right! Listen, if ya’ll aren’t willing to do your own inspection to figure out anything or everything that may not arrive with your car, and think that Tesla should be telling you ahead of time instead, then I don’t know what to say. Don’t be coddled like the BMW d-bags who disclose missing...

    Last car before you ordered your model 3?

    Hmm? There's no such thing.. do you mean E90/E92 maybe? Or maybe E46 330i?

    How good is YOUR Climate Control - Temperature Consistency

    I didn't know about this.. I always have the lid up; phone is always sitting in the holder charging. Didn't think it would affect the sensor, but I suppose it is plausible. Maybe it uses Vision only 😅.

    Center Console Trim Bubbling

    This should be replaced under warranty. It's a defective trim piece. Something similar happened to me on a different car so it's not limited to Tesla. The "aluminum look" trim in many cars today is just plastic wrapped in this "foil" for lack of a better term. Context:

    Chicago Condo Charging Station

    I'll pile on to say that this looks typical for any reputable condo building. You'd also want any vendors that your neighbors are bringing in to meet similar liability coverages, so it's a good requirement to have overall. Edit: I missed the part where the HOA is also requiring personal...

    How good is YOUR Climate Control - Temperature Consistency

    Same. I have to adjust the temp regularly during drives since it just seems to blow either very hot or cold relative to the outside temperature, which tends to vary a lot over a short time or distance. It doesn't seem to just maintain the set temperature in a nice consistent way. I also think...

    What Do YOU Call the Pedal on the Right?

    The skinny pedal, to differentiate from the wider brake pedal.

    Has anyone done the ceramic coating to the white seats?

    What TLLMRRJ says. I think the Gyeon provides yet another layer to help with making the seats easier to clean rather than outright preventing staining in the first place (though it may reduce how easily dye could transfer from your jeans for example). It's supposed to help prevent stains from...

    Has anyone done the ceramic coating to the white seats?

    Mine has been holding up very well over the past year or so. I forget if I'm supposed to re-apply it every six months, but I haven't. Then again, I haven't put a lot of miles on it over the past year either (~4k miles).

    Discussion: Tesla Vision system for Model 3/Y

    Phantom braking on the highway the other day caused the person behind me to get visibly upset because it looked like I'm brake checked him for no apparent reason. It was followed swiftly with a few impressively poetic phrases that I able to lip read through the rear view mirror, a pass, and a...
