    Garage door replacement suggestions

    We paid around 3k for our aluminum/glass garage door about 3 years ago. No regrets. I set up an LED light strip inside to light it up at night, plus additional decoration during the holidays.

    Kids Cybertrucks

    got this a month ago "for the kids"..... 😉 (we even vinyl wrapped it with stainless steel) definitely makes me look forward to the daily walk, unless the kids want to take their bike or scooter, then I have no excuse, lol

    Schedule charge then recharge

    from my experience, it charges to the set limit at the scheduled time and stops once reached. it doesn't make another attempt to top off until the next day at the scheduled time. for example: friday 9pm - plug in at 80% 10pm - starts charging (scheduled charging set at 10pm and 90% limit)...

    Supercharger stopped charging before set limit, then got charged idle fees?

    every few months I drain it down low and bring it to max. by the time i get home, it's drains to about 90% anyways. That first drive out of the supercharger is about the only time i slide it over to ludicrous plus since the battery is already warmed up and ready to go :cool:

    Supercharger stopped charging before set limit, then got charged idle fees?

    I know some superchargers automatically change the max to 80% when you first plug in, and you can always change it to higher after the notice. This particular one does not have the auto 80% and let me set it to any number. Even when it stopped prematurely, I tried to restart charging by bringing...

    Supercharger stopped charging before set limit, then got charged idle fees?

    Hey guys, I had a question. Sorry if it's been asked before, I usually post in the X forums..... Anyways, today I brought the X to supercharge to 100% (from 3%). After 2 hours, it stopped automatically at 204 mi (95%) even though it can go up to 217 mi. It was saying 20 minutes remaining and...

    Model X 90kWh battery pack degradation

    wow, i can't believe you beat me. i thought i had it the worst up until now. I also got my P90DL direct from Tesla with 49k. It's at 60k now with 100% at 216 and 90% at 198. I have been almost exclusively supercharging because it's free. The service center also failed to do anything about it...

    Infotainment Upgrade

    Your X only has AP1 and can never be upgraded to AP2. They should have told you this. FSD is not even an option for AP1. I don't know how you even paid for it in 2019 and you should get your money back if you are expecting FSD. You are limited to "Autopilot with convenience features" which...

    Snow chains?

    500 Inland Center Drive San Bernardino, CA 92408 Nice little mall to stop by for a pit stop and grab a bite. The chargers are right outside the parking structure. There's also an RV park but I did not go there 398 Edgemoor Road, Big Bear Lake CA 92315 Our airbnb had an exterior 120v so I...

    Snow chains?

    Yes! We took the X to big bear. It made it all the way there without, as well as around town, but finally had to throw them on going up the steep driveway of the airbnb. Get it just in case.

    AP1 MCU2 Upgrade?

    screen response time quicker maps load faster AP1 sensors seem to respond faster on 2nd screen netflix and youtube more games it was worth it for me

    Can someone explain this passage in the Owners Manual?

    This^^^ Videos saved from sentry or manually saved start taking up space for looping (because those do not get recorded over). Eventually you won't have enough space for the loop recording and you get the red X.

    Model X: Average Wh/mile Tracker

    That's on a good day for me. I average 500+ wh/mi. I only commute 3 miles/day so I like to stretch my legs during the 5 minutes to work.

    Where is the Plaid Model X?

    they need to solidify their fix on acceleration shudder, otherwise car would just about rattle to pieces in 2.4 seconds

    New Model X LR+ or used P90DL

    My battery degradation is horrible in my 2016 MXP90DL+. Straight driving I might get about 180. Short commuting will bring it down to 90 if I don't charge it every day and let it run down. Last about 6 days with 10 miles of use per day. Quality is good. Haven't had any major issues. My spoiler...

    Plugging in every day

    Plugging in every night masks phantom drain. I once made the analogy of range loss due to phantom drain akin to an ICE car losing half a gallon of gas per day. I have no reservations of utilizing my unlimited supercharging to offset this. I will top off every now and then during the week but...

    Raven X 0-60 P100D w/o warmup time

    2.6 is 100% ideal environment 2.8-2.9 is more realistic under warmup 3.0 to 3.2 would be my guess my P90DL+ is 3.0 rated 3.2 warmed up realistic number 3.4 is the fastest i could actually get

    Pedestrian Warning Sound now in X? Wait, what?

    Happened again tonight. Decided to see if it worked during summon and it does :p I also confirmed it is not audible outside the car and only plays from the middle of the dash. Is there even a speaker there?

    First day problems cost me a garage door and sheet metal damage

    yep! same here. the garage door hinges dug right into the bottom lip of the trunk. that was the first instance of owner error. after "fixing" it with touch up paint, we backed into the garage from that point on.

    First day problems cost me a garage door and sheet metal damage

    yes but not sure if it was heard at the time. it also became an arbitrary sound because the garage door would not activate every time. sometimes on approach the chime would go off but the door didn't move. we'd have to tap the house icon to manually open it. or we would drive off and hear the...

    First day problems cost me a garage door and sheet metal damage

    Its dumb. All it does is function as a garage remote button pressor. Here marks the moment we stopped using auto open/close We had pulled the car out to move it closer to the side for another car but i guess it was far enough away for HomeLink to activate automatically and the door started...

    not plugged in for 6 months?

    your neighbor obviously knows nothing about their car. 2 weeks (3 at the max) and phantom drain would have killed it. 6 months?? no way anything is alive at that point. that is going to be one pricey fix

    Tesla 2016 model x versus 2020 model X

    not to divert away from the original topic (we already know the newer is better) but the real elephant in the room is phantom drain. free supercharging is the only real way to take advantage of electric car range. losing 10-15 miles of range due to phantom drain is like an ICE car dripping half...

    Getting my Model X into a parking space

    i try to back into every spot i find and I hardly ever need to adjust. i find it immensely easier than pulling into a spot. the logistics of centering the back wheels is better when you have lateral space for the front wheels such as when backing in.

    MCU1 crashes - bad MX day

    i think the 12v has it's own warranty, not covered by the 2 or 4 year bumper to bumper. if you purchased your car within a year or just had it replaced less than a year ago, they will not charge you for a new one they are pretty lazy sometimes. they will look for the cheapest, fastest, and...

    We have "Close All Doors"...How about "Open All Doors"?

    until you accidentally activate it in your pocket while it's long pressed and you come back to all the doors and trunk open. mind you, the sensors don't pick up everything. long single roof press is the summon prompt.

    We have "Close All Doors"...How about "Open All Doors"?

    if you have butler mode, you can also double tap middle fob button to open the passenger side

    We have "Close All Doors"...How about "Open All Doors"?

    no. other than for looks, you wouldn't want each door to all open at the same time anyways (cept maybe the back two in a few instances). plus the trunk is in the mix. you want all 4 doors and the trunk to open when it's raining? just press the buttons really fast and you could get them to...

    Pedestrian Warning Sound now in X? Wait, what?

    so just to follow up on this... i rebooted and it went away but every now and then it pops back up. i've chalked it up as a glitch that unlocks the sound. it is entirely internal as the sound is piped through the internal audio speakers (useless right?). adjusting the speakers does nothing, it...

    Replacing Rear Camera on 2016 Model X

    does the replacement camera have the same specs as your old one, or is it the upgraded resolution of the newer ones? and do you need to do any wirecutting, splicing or tapping? or is there a connection that you just unplug and plug in the new one?

    Nice! we're almost twinning. Are your emblems glow in the dark? We did our wrap ourselves a couple of weekends ago. The wrap itself was about 700. Getting it professionally done would have been 2,000 more, so I forgave my amateur mistakes since I saved so much and learned while doing it. I...

    Pedestrian Warning Sound now in X? Wait, what?

    haven't had a chance to hear it from the outside. The tones resonate throughout the cabin making it hard to locate exactly where, but it sounds like it is coming from in back of the screen (weird, right?) the forward driving "whooshing" sound gets louder up to about 25 mph then softens up until...

    Lost 18 miles just sitting in Garage for 1 hour.

    where have you read that. i always immediately plug it in, especially if it's low. i would think it's designed to be plugged in right away. it should know to throttle up/down as tolerable
