    2022.8.10.1 on MCU1

    Originally 2.5 I believe, upgraded to 3 when I bought the car in June of 2020. PUP but honestly rarely use XM so didn't notice any issues. My browser worked better than it ever had with 2021.24.28, but that's not saying much lol. The charge stats available on the app now is pretty neat.

    2022.8.10.1 on MCU1

    2017 MCU1 just installed. V11 woohoo! Scared to test it out as my 2021.24.28 worked pretty flawlessly compared to others.

    Can we put the "teslas have thin paint" rumor to bed now?

    Unfortunately no. The paint on our (20k) Hyundai Ioniq has way less rock chips than my Tesla. It seems like every rock makes a new mark 😣

    Air pressure in tires very low

    My car will show low around 40 psi and will continue until I put significantly more air in. Driving, heating up the tires to 41-42 psi will still show the low warning.

    2022 Apple CarPlay update vs Tesla UI

    That reddit thread is all over the place. The title states that 79% of car owners want carplay (which probably came from a carplay/iPhone poll), then that gets posted in a Tesla section, and a good portion of the comments rip carplay and most seem to really only want Apple music. Well, here's...

    Coronavirus

    Well fudge.... Add me to the list now. Dodged it for a while but received a positive test yesterday. Double vaxxed with booster. Mild symptoms. Slight fever, slight aches, bad headache but very cyclic, not steady (really weird), congestion. Currently coughing up crud. What's weird is we road...

    Stuck with 2021.24.28

    I agree with all that has been posted. 2017 S with MCU1, 2021.24.28 and 'FSD', but we know the version we have will never function as intended because Tesla now puts all effort into the new beta program. I feel your frustration.

    bird poo damage

    Good quality microfiber will be ok to use. I have about 10-12 that I rotate, my S has swirls but mostly since the day I bought it (used with 45k miles), it doesn't look that bad though (76k miles on her now). The last few Vettes I had were new, the microfibers kept them relatively swirl free for...

    bird poo damage

    Ceramic alone will not but many installers will recommend a clay bar and polish before ceramic coating. The polishing should remove the swirls. Edit- I should have used paint correction (like jjrandorin states below) vs polish.

    bird poo damage

    My Vette got 'etched' by a bird poop a few years ago so it's not limited to Teslas. The EV does seem more susceptible to rock chips though.

    Coworker With A C6 Z06 Keeps Wanting To Race

    BFG Rival tires? I think that and the driver are the key. I still think on the street you should have the advantage, especially to 80mph. Either way I don't think he'll 'eat you alive', although by 80 he'll be hitting his stride. My intake/ headers Z06 did 11.4s128 at a local track. With a...

    Tesla Partnership with Buc-ee's (26 New Locations)

    I read today that the Luling location is getting another expansion, I wonder if SCs are in the mix. I know I10 has a few choices, but it could really use a V3 between Houston and SA.

    How much is warranty worth?

    From what I have read they are common in the Model S (door handles, headlights), but since I don't have a 3 yet I'm not too sure. I want to add one to our stable so I have done a little research on them and they seem less prone to part failures but it might be because they are still all...

    How much is warranty worth?

    How long are you planning on keeping the car? My warranty has been worth several thousand on my used '17 S. Rear hatch motor replaced, rear door handle and water intrusion in rear tail light. I was lucky enough to buy one of the last 4 year/ 50k mile warranty cars on Tesla's used listings...

    WTB: Model S p100d. 2017 or 2018

    Do you care about mileage? Range at 100%? Not sure why I'm asking, I love my P100D and unfortunately I'm not quite in the market yet for a Plaid unless some sucker is willing to drastically overpay for my car 🤣 Good hunting Mrwatchdawg!

    Phantom battery drain - 30 miles per night

    ^this. I lose way more when I'm under 10% charge vs 20%+. Most of the time I don't even notice a loss while at work, but the time I parked with 8% I came back to 1%, I'm lucky to have a supercharger a stones throw away.

    What’s best for my needs? Ceramic Coat or Wrap?

    Let me know how the paint kit does. I had an older one that I used quite a bit on the hood chips and it was starting to get thick after so many openings(?) of the bottle (sucks because it still had a ton of paint left) and when I tried it on the spot it actually looked worse. I'm considering...

    What’s best for my needs? Ceramic Coat or Wrap?

    Man, I have the same thing on my front bumper, and I did it with a pressure washer as well. 😭

    What’s best for my needs? Ceramic Coat or Wrap?

    Ceramic won't do a thing for that. A wrap will cover it and protect it to an extent, but that's some serious chipping.

    So, the 8 current ones are where the solid red line is, I wonder if another 4 or 8 will go where the dots are? The black line is where the trenching is located. No green box yet, I think the pad for it is there in the second pic above.

    Buying a used model s

    I know it's a tough decision. These cars could/should go twice that. But, I wouldn't buy one out of warranty. Too many high $$ items that could potentially need replacing.
