    Impromptu video. 5 am on a VERY foggy morning. Heads Up, FSD Is not active a good chunk of the drive, because either it wouldn't LET me activate, or as soon as I activate it freaked out. I was at my parents home (They were out of town) overnight as the previous days storm & hail took out A LOT...

    What better test of FSD Beta than to take it into one of the most difficult driving situations around. One of the first that came to mind was DOWNTOWN CHICAGO! Anyone who's driven in Downtown Chicago can vouch, the drivers drive like crap, pedestrians seem to randomly cross the street at any...

    Day 2 Drive 2; Visualization was quite impressive in a parking lot. The level of detail was amazing! FSD had trouble leaving the parking space, but activated once out of the space. Unfortunately, it tried to accelerate to 30mph and also make a 90 degree right turn. I noticed the FSD...

    FSD Beta Day 2 Drive 1 The drive started off a little shaky. Starting off the drive, the car couldn't even pull straight out the driveway. The steering wheel was for lack of better words, having a seizure. It also couldn't decide if it was going left or right. Once I manually pulled it out...

    Tesla Model X Bio Filter How to clean. Tesla has designed the Bio Defense Filter for the Model S and Model X to be glued into the housing. As such, the cost is significantly increased for replacement. I've found, while the filter may "Look Dirty", it still may have a lot of life left in it. As...

    Over the air improvements or Over the air repairs? (No wonder such few recalls) *SupperCharging is Slower and Range Decreased!

    Original MS Could charge at 20kW stateside with dual charger. I have it and use it extensively on my 2016 MS. My 2016 MX only has the 48 amp charger, and the faster 72 amp charger they offered for it for a while, would have saved a LOT of time on many occasions. 27kW "supercharging" is not...

    Not capped. Actually looks fairly good, and 250 miles range at 100% is good. Better than my 90 pack.... Likely will supercharge faster too.

    Need to add, that new 350v 85kWh pack, is actually around 87kWh. So actually larger than the original 85 pack. The 350v 85 pack is actually larger than the 90 packs, which were about 85.4-ish kWh. Realistically, the 90kWh pack should have been advertised as a 85, and the original 85 should have...

    Model X (only) - FSD beta

    So far none. Further, only approximately 10 vehicles in Wisconsin have even gotten the camera upgrade. I was around #7. I know one person got the camera upgrade in December, still no FSD Beta.

    Agreed, but a SLOW rate charge might be able to bring it up enough while giving the BMS time to bleed of the other modules/bricks.

    While I do agree, it brings the cost of the replacement down, my personal stance, is that Tesla needs to start following the law or at least be more transparent or honest. Every other dealer or mechanic shop I've dealt with in the past, including my own motorcycle shop, if a part had to be kept...

    In Wisconsin, you must request your parts back before service starts, otherwise they are fair game. Tesla must state that there is a required core. If after requesting your parts back, service does not tell you there is a required core for the service, they MUST return the parts back, or be...

    FSD on MX Better than FSD on MS. Why??

    Model X Should have the best performing FSD and Autopilot of the 4 vehicle lineup, Mostly due to the vehicle being higher, better visibility.
