    VW, still high on diesel fumes, thinks snowball EV can beat Model 3

    I think these "Tesla Killers" are really a competitor for the Nisson Leaf and not the Model 3. My neighbor just traded his Leaf for a Chevy Bolt for the increased mileage. I think Nisson is the one that is going to lose when other car OEM's come out with 200+ miles of charge.

    How is Tesla going to meet 2017 goals for service centers and superchargers

    I asked a Service Center Technician how many cars are needed in a city to get a Service Center and the answer was roughly 150 Cars/city. I am hoping that when we get 150 cars in the whole State of Montana, which has the population of some cities, Tesla might put a Service Center in Bozeman or...

    Reading Speed Limit Signs

    I Have a 90 D with AP1 and it will occasionally limit my speed by recording the speed limit for trucks which is 65 while car speed limit is 80. I have to disengage My auto steering because it limits me to 65. It used to do this more often, so it's getting better and is a minor inconvenience so far.

    Model S Nature Pictures

    I took a Sunday drive last weekend up Spanish Creek to see the Spanish Peaks and take advantage of how the normally dusty gravel road in the Summer has now become smooth and snow packed this Winter. Ted Turner owns this ranch, which has about 10,000 head of Bison on about 113,613 acres. There is...

    I just configured a Chevy Bolt. How much does yours cost?

    How many cars can GM afford to sell if this is true? Report: GM will lose ~$9,000 for every Chevy Bolt EV it sells before ZEV credit

    Supercharger - Jackson WY

    I charged here yesterday (10/23/16) and had a really good burrito at the Hot food/deli department and some great coffee to go at Jackson's Whole Grocery and Cafe where the Tesla Superchargers are. They have a pretty nice area to eat with windows and a fireplace. Three of 8 chargers were ICE'd...

    8.0 Music Player Unusable

    In the streaming of Slacker I am losing the last 45 seconds of 90% of the songs played. Pretty annoying losing the ending of my favorite tunes. The icons disappearing in Navigation could be an option instead of default. And I don't like tesla choosing my default screen positions, It takes extra...

    The end of "Autopilot" (term)

    I think auto pilot is a totally appropriate name for this suite of safety features and Tesla has done a great job describing what it can and cannot do. However, the viral videos of people pushing it way beyond how it should be used is what is setting a dangerous expectation of full autonomy and...

    Was the initial 7.0 release "this bad"

    58 sun revolutions . On 8.0 I've noticed a few songs on Slacker cutting off with10-15 seconds of play and my 17 Inch display rebooted spontaneously yesterday. When I'm locked onto a car in front of me with TACC and they slow and then turn out of my lane, I really like that there is less of a...

    New Tesla owner

    Welcome to TMC, and the world of Tesla. I loved my S85 I bought in 2013 and then I traded it in for a S90D and still am the happiest man on the planet!

    What will you do if 8.0 delivers tomorrow?

    Two nights ago I was half way home from a trip and got the OTA update notification and sat in the hotel parking lot only to get my S90D updated to 2.36.31. Excited to see 8.0 when it gets here. Btw, have you ever sat thru an install? It's wild all the flashing lights , whirling fans, screens...

    Auto Pilot V8.x - When is database created?

    I just want to point out that Montana roads were never designed to go over 80 MPH so curves will often deactivate AP, we have guard rails that are very close to the road so I often deactivate AP when I move to where I am comfortable. We have many narrow bridges that often make me take control...

    Tesla moments

    Bozeman is a relatively small western college town and so I was surprised to see another Model S parked at a spot I often go to for lunch. The blue P85D parked behind me was playing music as I approached and it turned out to be another Bozemanite that got his car about a year ago. We visited and...

    My sixteen year old son is in Driver's Education class, and today I was invited to bring my 90D to his class. I spoke for an hour about all the benefits of EV vs. ICE and how supporting Tesla helps support something bigger than all of us, the transition away from fossil fuels. Then I showed the...

    Planning trip to Yellowstone in 2016, trying to work out charging

    Red Lodge is a nice little town and is worth an overnight. I've done the Beartooth Highway from West Yellowstone to Canyon to Tower, Cooke- City to Red Lodge to Roscoe, Absarokee, to Columbus and finally to Big Timber, in my 90 D but it takes 12 hours or more to cover that much territory and the...

    Tesla moments

    I was at the West Yellowstone Super Charger, yesterday when another Model S backed in and plugged in. The next thing I saw was the mother opened the Frunk, laid her baby down inside and did a diaper change. The whole time, another mom in an ICE car, with a baby strapped on her chest, was...

    I was not selected to go, however, a Tesla buddy has invited me as his +1 so I'll be driving to Elko, NV tomorrow and then on to The Gigafactory Friday. I must say I am very excited to attend my very first Tesla Event while being an investor and owner since 2013.

    Please chime in if in agreement so that AP is not disabled...

    Call me unusual, I love AP but I have one or two hands on the steering wheel at all times and use it only on boring, straight sections of freeway driving. I hold the wheel firmly when passing cars, trucks, cross an overpass and around curves. I use AP to reduce fatigue and not for multi-tasking...

    The "bars' are chrome and reflect the body color and shadow sometimes so they seem like they are not there, however I am sure all cars have them.

    So im obsessed

    I traded in my 2013 S85 for a 2016 90D so I've gone thru this Twice! The second time I ordered and confirmed and then went on vacation. Tesla then started calling me, to find out when I would be home so they could get it to me. Then I just could not get home fast enough! 2 days later it was in...
