    Illinois EV Plates

    Which type of vanity plate? I was unable to renew my old plate and they forced the EL plate on me.

    Supercharger - Oak Brook, IL

    That was really fast, because I drove by there on Sunday and there was still a bunch of construction equipment on site. I tested voice command "Navigate to Oak Brook Supercharger" this morning, and it gave me a choice of the library, the bath and tennis club, and a couple other destination...

    Supercharger - Bolingbrook, IL

    I charged here today, and as I drove in I thought a pickup truck was ICEing some of the 150kW stalls. As I turned in, I saw orange cones in front of those stalls, and a guy from the truck working on something. Maybe an upgrade to the older stalls, or fixing some intermittent power problem with...

    Supercharger - Oak Brook, IL

    Work continues apace at the Oak Brook SC. I dropped by this morning and talked to the guys installing the panel from ComEd and the transformers. They had no target date of availability. "We tell Tesla the work is done, they turn it on when they're ready."

    Supercharger - Oak Brook, IL

    Maybe the traffic analysis shows more southbound Teslas in this part of DuPage County than northbound, hence an easier right turn in / right turn out after charging.

    Supercharger - Oak Brook, IL

    Okay, the name of the strip mall is The Oaks of Oak Brook. There is a Panera for food, drink, bathroom, and wifi. The lat/long is 41.854716667 / -87.9583277778. I didn't see any transformer. The layout is two rows of four back-to-back. Here are some photos.

    I just saw the pedestals today with orange construction fence around them. The site is in the little strip mall on 16th Street on the west side of Route 83 across from the Oak Brook Mall. I'll get some pictures tomorrow morning.

    Pick up in Bay Area Only, I live in DC

    Seems like it might be cheaper to fly DCA to SJC and drive the car home.
  15. FielderJones


    I fixed this by navigating to Home while parked in my garage. I think the car forgot where home was after the update. Walk away lock works normally now.

    Car Locks at Home

    This started happening to my 2019 Model 3 after I updated to 2021.32.10. Like you I've gone through all the steps of changing the settings, but the UI seems to be ignoring the checkbox. Now I have to turn walkaway lock off when I get home, and back on when I go for a ride somewhere.

    2019 3 SR+ — 2021.32.10 broke the walkaway lock exception for home. Car automatically locks even at home. :(

    For considerably less than $2000 you could fly to the west coast and drive the car home. Could be an excellent road adventure.

    Back from delivery and a drive! Delivery was smooth with no drama. Wifey a bit overwhelmed by the technology but had fun driving around. Sorry no pics as the weather in the Chicago area is bad. Feeling bad for Suds as he is picking up now and the weather is worse than when we picked up. Good...

    So I went over to the Westmont delivery center this morning before they opened up, drove to the back lot, and the first white Model Y was my wife's! Built on May 12, all panels and glass looked good. Came home and tried to pay online but Plaid didn't like the access code from our bank. So we...

    When this place lit up about 90 minutes ago, I checked my wife's account. From 6-9 weeks this morning, to VIN and EDD May 25-28!! No email from SA yet. She has the default configuration, ordered Apr 29. VIN 193xxx. Picking up in Westmont. Since that's about 2 miles from us, we went over and...

    I just drove by the Westmont store. There were about 25 Model Ys in the back without license plates, some with shipping wrap still on. Every color except red. Didn't get out and look at decals, but I would bet that some of you will be matched to a VIN once those cars get updated.

    It's not totally hacked, because the red Model 3 in my account shows the correct VIN. Wife's white Model Y has turned into a blue Model 3 like everyone else here.

    Today is three weeks since my wife ordered the default Model Y (White/19/Black/5/NoTow/AP). On order day she was estimated 6-9 weeks from order date. The estimate has remained the same since then, except for May 12, when it was listed as Jun 17 - 30. On May 13 it went back to 6-9 weeks from...

    Delivery Success Stories

    Bought my Model 3 in April 2019 out of inventory at the Westmont IL store. Ordered on Monday, picked up on Thursday. Panel gaps perfect, interior perfect, no issues at all. Two years later it's still the best car I've ever owned.

    2018 vs 2020 quality?

    My April 2019 SR+ still charges to 216 miles indicated at the top of the Daily battery range limit, exactly 90% of 240 miles. As far as I know the 2019s never got a boost to 250 miles.

    Got screwed by Tesla's terrible customer service again

    Apples and oranges. Once the F-150 is out of the Ford factory it is no longer Ford's problem, it is some dealership's problem. There are no dealerships involved with Tesla.

    Anyone reconsidering their order after seeing how Elon is reacting to COVID-19?

    Probably saved 8-9 million USA lives, vs doing nothing and just letting people spread the virus to everyone in the country. How bad do you think the economy would have been after that, never mind all the sick people who would have been unable to do their jobs. Doing nothing would have been...

    Can you choose your delivery location?

    With Chicago as a major rail hub, I think you're more likely to get the car in a more timely fashion if you take delivery at one of the Chicago stores. You could take delivery in Westmont if you don't want to deal with city traffic. That store also seems to get a good number of inventory cars.

    Not sure if its an error, but the site shows 100+ model 3's within 100 miles of me.

    The 26 LR AWDs and Ps that were up this morning in the Chicago area are gone, but there are now 2 SR+ in Highland Park, and a LR AWD in the BNSF Logistics Park. New & Used Electric Cars | Tesla

    I think I just wasted $7,000 on FSD?

    You should make a service appointment. My non-FSD SR+ follows curves like a champ on AutoSteer.

    Can I/Should I Buy LR AWD

    It's the fastest car I've ever owned. At age 65, it's got all the acceleration my reaction time can handle, and much more than my wife wants. I have plenty of fun with the car when I'm alone in it, or with a guy friend. Wonderful car.

    Model 3 resale value

    I've had my SR+ since April 2019 and 4400 miles. I charge to 90% every night and the car displays 216, 215, or 214 miles range, almost exactly 90% of 240. Following the Tesla recommendation has worked well for me.

    Why the obsession with deleting chrome?

    I'm a mid-boom baby boomer and I've always liked chrome — it's what I grew up with. I never really noticed chrome delete on the streets, and only found out it was a thing on these boards. For that reason, I thought chrome delete was a GenXer / Millennial fashion statement.

    $1,875 rebate sounds likely

    No, they'll just sell the car to someone else..
  48. FielderJones

    OK, so...did everyone get their cars by the end of 2019?

    Good luck with that. There are probably a dozen people in the SR+ waiting room thread that will happily take that car off of Tesla's hands at the Carlsbad store and be happy to take the $1875.

    2019.40.50.7 Strange bug: need card next to cup holder

    This always works for me if the car starts demanding the key card. Somehow the bluetooth connection has a glitch. Happens to me most often after a car software update or a phone software update.
