    Ford requiring owners of F-150 Lightnings to not sell them in first year

    Just wonder how they’d enforce it. Talked to a new rivian owner this weekend. Had it about 3 months and is getting pressured by his family to sell it for $40k more than he paid. Don’t know if he’d really be able to get that.

    HEPA Filter Replacement

    Did you use the HEPA setting very much? We’ve only used it twice in 3 yrs. Not sure if it would need to be changed.. We live in a pretty rural area and just don't run into situations that need it.

    European truck makers are getting infrastructure ready for long-distance electric trucking.

    I thought Mercedes spun off their Freighliner truck division. This is based in Portland OR. Perhaps they have truck production in Europe under a different name.I know Freighliner was struggling to develop an electric truck and it seemed like Mercedes was distancing themselves in case of failure.

    Lug Nuts: suggestions, problems, questions

    I bought a set of these for our 2017 90D but never used them. They sell for about $20-$25 for four. Geese I forgot how much I paid! You acn have all of them for $25 plus shipping. I’m in the NW

    'If you don't show up, we will assume you have resigned': Elon Musk's ultimatum to Tesla office workers

    I’m really not very interested in AI day but I’d love to know when the next Battery day will occur.

    Wifi for update notifications?

    My Plaid bogs down the crappy internet we get from CenturyLink (12-20 mbps). We’re rural and have no other options. I have to turn off Wi-Fi or the whole house pays for our car hogging the bandwidth. Because the app gets a separate notification I get update available notices on the phone app and...

    How is a stock buy back bad? Not sarcasm, just not sure how this would adversely affect shareholders.

    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    While I love the advantages he brings on technical matters, I shutter at him trying his hand at a social media company. His ego and self centeredness makes him a much bigger threat than most people realize. How can someone this socially challenged even remotely think he can make the right...

    All discussion of Rivian Automotive

    Watched this one and the next one below. Boy he really likes this truck! Engineering expertise aside Sandy is an avid off roader and was a huge Jeep enthusiast. He sold his jeep and kept the Rivian for his wife. He also bought one for a youtube teardown. Too bad I can't get by that small bed.

    F-150 Ford Lightning

    Gee guess things have changed. It wasn't that way when I ordered. I even posted a "Better read this before you order a Lightning" post when I first ordered but that was a while back. I chronicled everything I was told. No matter what it's good for you now. I don't care to debate our different...

    F-150 Ford Lightning

    You're in New Hampshire. You know nothing about the market nationwide much less here in the NW. I did check and no dealer I called in OR or WA would commit to a MSRP price. They all said"WE'LL SEE when it comes in". Oh yea if its so simply why did Ford issue a nation wide threat to dealers that...

    Does anyone know how many Plaids have been delivered vs LR

    I'm in WA just across the river from Portland OR. I see tons of 3, Y's and older MS/X I never see Plaids. I've actually only seen a total of three (including mine). Just wondered about actual numbers or percentages. I'm sure there are a lot more up by Seattle but very few down here.

    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    I've not paid attention to Musk's Twitter details. Are you saying Musk is buying part of Twitter on a naked margin postion? His selling Tesla shares for cash wasn't enough to finish things? How much Twitter did he buy (or commit to buy) on margin?

    F-150 Ford Lightning

    Will you pay a premium if required? If so how much over MSRP would you be willing to go? I do want this to succeed but unwilling to enterain any mark up so I probably won't be getting on. I originally ordered one just after they started taking reservations but cancelled when the local dealer...

    Good for you! Huge amount of work! I’m still bracing myself for my mudflap installations. Gotta trim them and then lay on the garage floor to install. I’m exhausted just thinking about it!

    Model S Refresh - Push Center to Honk on Yoke?

    God I’m so tired of the needless yoke attacks! How hard is it to just press the horn icon? And how is this a major detraction? It’s not like we’ve been honking since time immortal by simply pressing the center of the wheel In an emergency. Just suck it up and adjust! Besides, this is not nearly...

    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    You should explain that selling covered calls have limited risk. Selling naked calls theoretically have unlimited risk. Then you'd have to explain how to cover them and that would be a long post!

    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    When a company incorporates in a state they specify a number of shares in their corporate charter. That's how a company creates common stock shares. They then go back to the state to get them authorized. The state taxes them on the number authorized so they don't just incorporate with a...

    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    So what is a stock price suppose to represent? You buy shares for ownership in a company. The value of those shares represent both public opinion and actual financial strength. It is not based on book value but financial analysts throw around the terms undervalued and overvalued quite a bit. So...

    Tesla Model S OEM Mud Flaps Suck!!

    Thanks! Sanding sounds totally necessary.
  25. C

    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    They are not requesting authorization for any split. They are just about out of shares and need got get more to do any board dictated split. That requires a share holder vote. Tesla's original incorporation shares are probably mostly gone. Certainly not enough to support any meaningful split...

    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    Yea I commented a few pages ago that it was hard to explain this to the wife. So tired of endless Tesla is doing great posts, YouTube videos followed not only lack luster SP performance but actual downward trends! I know Gordon J is full of sugar but it's hard to hide from the current stock...

    Tesla Model S OEM Mud Flaps Suck!!

    How did you cut them? Just a square and a box cutter? Just got mine the other day and need to trim.

    F-150 Ford Lightning

    Or just pay it off. That’s what I’d do to get the discount. Moving the loan after the deal is done is also a great idea. In either cause you just have to make sure there is no early payoff penalty.

    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    While she (Ms Woods) predicts great future prices for Tesla she seems to be selling a lot more than buying. If the future is so bright why is she selling?

    Handling S Long Range v Plaid

    Yes I am only going on my charge reading every morning or after charging to 100% Don't know of many that actually correlate actual vs charged indication. Telsa claimed I should have been able to charge to 394 or so and I charge to 388-390. Are you saying that I am actually not getting anywhere...

    Handling S Long Range v Plaid

    I have a Plaid and my range is easily with expections of advetized. I consistently get 388-390 miles at 100%. 310-315 at 80%. Most others I've seen have similar results. Pretty sure the track mode (not included in a LR) will make a huge difference in handling. Not as much as after market brake...

    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    I saw the record results on numerous online reporting outstanding results, beating the WS estimates by a huge margin. The wife asked "So why the sp was down $50 today". No other company is doing anything close to this and still the price goes down? She's tired of my claiming how great the...

    Model S refresh mud flaps

    Wonder why only front flaps. We have significant road wash on the entire rear of our car during the winter especially on the camera. Seems like it could help.

    Plaid Performance Degradation with Mileage

    This is our third MS and I‘ve always tracked battery charging. If you really want to know what’s going on you have to be pretty methodical on tracking your charging. I keept my max charge to 80% and monitored it via app notification every day. Of course that % differed from our P85 to a 90D to...

    Who here is going to lose 3G Connectivity - Feb 2022 when it sunsets?

    Intermittently out in the country. 5G sometimes Never saw any Nav problems but voice commands are sketchy out here. In town voice works fine. Nav seems to work everywhere fine.

    Just that is a new production MS and while I have Wi-Fi challenges I don’t need to stay connected to keep nav.

    Who here is going to lose 3G Connectivity - Feb 2022 when it sunsets?

    I don’t think so. I can’t leave my Plaid connected to our wifi (over loads our System). I don’t have any problems wit’s turn by turn navigation. Occasionally I get a message asking if I want to set up Wi-Fi. I don’t get the above message. I’m really rural with really slow speed (10-5 mbps)...

    2021 Refreshed Model S - steering wheel yolk material peeling off?

    Wow this looks bad. Neighbor just paid to have his LR 2022 ceramic coated and filmed. They included some type of interior protection for the seats, dash, yoke. I wondered about the value as nothing is leather. Nothing to absorb anything. I assumed Tesla tested this fabric for wear. Guess we'll...

    "There's going to be a dedicated robotaxi, it's going to look quite futuristic"

    You are so right. I was a science major in college and never took writing as anything besides a necessary evil. Then I took a job a fortune 100 company and found myself having to send out e-mails to hundreds of folks. I was so afraid of looking like an idiot that I had the tech writers screen...

    "There's going to be a dedicated robotaxi, it's going to look quite futuristic"

    No he’s not. Do you dispute anything he said? I’ve never believed the taxi thing would ever work but don’t care to try convince anyone their wrong. Everything he stated are true claims.

    Premium Connectivity Included

    Should say so on the website. Do a screen shot if it does. Our Plaid came with 1 year but it's a Aug 2021 car and that may not still be true. Finally it will be on your car under Software ( with expiration date)

    V11 - How to turn on seat heaters without turning on climate?

    Yea I agree. I’d prefer a button. Someone just went too far deleting things this revision.

    New charge port LED placement is horrendous.

    Is charging indicator the T in the upper right corner? Not sure what is supposed to change color. Does the charge handle cover it somehow (if it's not the T)?

    V11 - How to turn on seat heaters without turning on climate?

    Voice commands are your friend. "Driver's seat heater low, medium, or hi" Gets it done easily. Why fight it trying to make the climate control work correctly? This should not even be a topic of discussion but alas it is. Not sarcasm it just shouldn't be hard to use seat heaters

    Ok so how long have you been monitoring me!!! I know it’s wrong but I can’t help it! So much FUD. I mean what am I suppose to do? Just take it? I SAY NO! I will continue to feed this habit and damn the consequences! Ok that was probably a little over the top. I’ll stop now.
