    Everything wrong with V11 update / user interface.

    Don't get your hopes up. I'm sure just like every other time, they'll bring in a new UI "designer" or two (likely just out of college because they're hungry and cheap), come they'll up with a completely different UI/UX metaphor, and it will be considerably worse than what we have today. Until...

    Best front license plate mount?

    Instead of buying from Amazon, I would suggest looking and buying from their own websites and eliminating the Amazon middleman.

    Limited Time: 100 kWh Battery Upgrade (S/X), Ludicrous+ Capable, 2 Year Warranty

    Maybe you could do a 10-day ebay style auction -- and only run one auction at a time for the "next available good deal 100 pack", so you're only holding a non-refundable* deposit for one person at a time. Or you could do a sealed-bid auction to the highest bidder. But I guess you already...

    I’ll try the one I have tomorrow and report back.

    To MCU2 or not to MCU2?

    There are lots of $15-$20 Bluetooth transmitters on Amazon that work great for this need.

    Yup. BoA with Platinum Honors Preferred Rewards.

    Just had 9.8kw Solar+2PW installed, have some noob questions.

    There are two breakers in the gateway. 30amps for the powerwalls, and 100a for the solar inverter -- which does feed my essential loads panel. There are no other breakers as part of the solar/inverter/gateway.

    Just had 9.8kw Solar+2PW installed, have some noob questions.

    I'm pretty sure it's on a 100a breaker.

    Just had 9.8kw Solar+2PW installed, have some noob questions.

    Today's peak was 7.57kw. I have the new 400w Tesla panels. I was told the 7.6kw inverter can go up to about 10kw. Is that not correct?

    Funniest Tesla Question Thread

    Somewhere on TMC is the story of a new MS owner who gave let his landscaper test drive his brand new car. The landscaper drove it directly into a tree, totalling the car.

    TMC Website Tutorial

    Danny, I just upgraded my own community to Xenforo 2.2, and they also are clamoring at me for an "Unread Watched Threads" filter. They do not like the "Watched Content" option. Just like we harassed you for it, too. :) Can I ask how did you get these options on the filter popup? Was...

    Funniest Tesla Question Thread

    When I first got my P85+ I was at a highway rest stop. This older gentleman was asking me good questions overall, but he asked me about 5 times that same question but differently: So it runs on battery? Yes So there's no fuel? No No fuel tank? No No engine? No You just charge up the battery...

    Just had 9.8kw Solar+2PW installed, have some noob questions.

    Quick noob question. I have 23 400w panels for a 9.2kW system on all four sides of our roof. There are no trees or any other blockages. The bottom face with the most panels (10) is facing south-south-west. During the peak summer days, what do you think the max kWs I'd be able to get from...

    The Gateway 2 has an Ethernet port that I just plugged in and it worked.

    Is getting someone to buy a used car without lying about the value a fool's errand?

    If a buyer wants a loan, the transaction would happen at the bank, and you'd get a bank check and hand over the title and a bill-of-sale with the proper sales dollar amount. If a buyer is getting a loan, there's really no way for them to easily change the documents to avoid paying the sales...

    How can I permanently remove the browser from my Tesla

    How long to get the $50k deposit back?

    It sounds like you still have plenty of TSLA left. Just borrow $50k on margin to buy more TSLA now, then pay back the margin loan when you get the refund check from Tesla. You're basically gambling the margin interest rate against the gain or loss in the stock price. :)

    Some New Cybertruck Footage

    He only has TWO questionable bits of evidence to support his Model X conspiracy theory: Model X in the center display Model X charging port Both of which are more likely explained that (1) they're using the core software without any CT graphics yet, and (2) raiding the factory parts bin...

    Is getting someone to buy a used car without lying about the value a fool's errand?

    Don't do it. He just wants to pay little or no state sales tax. If he wants the car, tell him the the Bill of Sale will be accurate or you'll find someone else. By documenting the car at a lower value than the actual sales price, you are committing tax fraud. Depending on the state, if the...

    Model S Software/Firmware wishlist

    The "research" you posted is simply just Spotify's growth. BFD. That does nothing to prove or even support your assertion that "Pandora is losing favor". We get it, you hate Pandora and love Spotify, as do lots of people. But you can't just make a blanket statement that "Pandora is loving...

    Using a Credit Card or Paypal to pay for TESLA Solar

    I don't know the detail in the steps, but the day after I paid in full I got this message from my power utility: Maybe that would have happened anyway?

    Model S Software/Firmware wishlist

    Hardly. And clearly this is just your own opinion. I tried Spotify for several months, and I found on the Spotify 'Radio Stations' it would repeat the same songs in a very tight 'genra' every couple of days, and in the same order! With Pandora, I really never know what's going to play next...

    Using a Credit Card or Paypal to pay for TESLA Solar

    Glad I found this thread! We just has 9.2kw solar+2x(referral)PW installed and got the final bill. I was just about to pay with a bank account and thought to check if we can pay by CC. I'm currently getting 2.625% back on my BoA card, so that's about a $400 bonus! Plus I self-referred back in...

    It's just existing software installed for testing. They just don't have the CT graphics ready yet.

    That's exactly what the service tech did when he came to fix the leak.

    Concern with Model X VIN outdated

    What's the next digit before the "39"?

    Just had 9.8kw Solar+2PW installed, have some noob questions.

    Ok, but I'm not sure how I'd get them back to re-configure the CTs and remote Neurio.

    I'm not sure if that was an option they would have considered.

    Just had 9.8kw Solar+2PW installed, have some noob questions.

    tl;dr: It now works. The installers added a remote Neurio transmitter in the main panel that was redundant double-counting the total energy consumed. Neurio removed. Well, Tesla was here today to meet with the town inspector, and arrived about 90 minutes before the inspector did. I showed...

    Limited Time: 100 kWh Battery Upgrade (S/X), Ludicrous+ Capable, 2 Year Warranty

    FWIW, I've only seen about a 140kW peak on V3 chargers with my 100kWh battery, and yes, that was at a low SOC and springtime temps (not too hot or cold). Definitely have never seen V3 above 150kW.

    Limited Time: 100 kWh Battery Upgrade (S/X), Ludicrous+ Capable, 2 Year Warranty

    Nice! Considering I'm getting 285-286 miles @100% on my P85D+ which was upgraded by wk057 to a P100D+, I think I'm doing pretty good for a 2016 100kWh battery! Although last year I was getting about 288-289 miles @100% but then I did unfortunately loose 3 or 4 miles back in November when I...

    Self-Arranged Financing can't be from an Individual?!

    Agreed..sounds a little strange. Also, couldn't the "friend" just hand you the title for safekeeping until the loan is paid back?

    Concern with Model X VIN outdated

    IMHO, I would not consider a VIN difference of <2000 cars to be "vintage". But do check to see if it was previously damaged before delivery and/or rejected, and WHY it was rejected. And ask about the swivel screen if that's important to you. But I don't think claiming the VIN as "vintage"...

    Just had 9.8kw Solar+2PW installed, have some noob questions.

    And one other weird problem. I definitely do NOT have PTO yet and "Permission to Export" is set to "No"... but according to the Sense meter, the Gateway is sending power back to the grid.

    Just had 9.8kw Solar+2PW installed, have some noob questions.

    Ok, they came and fixed the coolant leak. They're still working on the erratic power flows. But I think I found a clue. You can see in my post #4 above, Tesla added two CTs to measure the whole-house load from the grid. Each of the two CTs for this transmitter attach to the two main service...

  48. HankLloydRight

    Just had 9.8kw Solar+2PW installed, have some noob questions.

    Something is definitely wrong here. The power flow is 3.3kW solar directly to the grid. And I don't even have PTO yet, so it's not supposed to do that.
