    Austin airport parking with charging

    There are SO many super chargers around Austin now, just charge up before you get to the airport... :)

    Remember THIS when the Tx legislature says dealer promote price shipping!

    Stuck in 2021.32.22?

    I saw a butterfly flap its wings and now my car is downloading 2021.36.5.1, after being stuck at 32.22.

    New S: Yoke or Nope?

    I hope the option for a regular wheel will be available as Elon mentioned.

    Anyone from Texas here get overcharged?

    Nope. Fixed rate plans (like most municipalities) and not worth the risk of variable; especially since Austin Energy is nice enough to pay for my solar production.

    Supercharger Etiquette

    First come, first served. Basically get the charge you need and move... Set an alarm on your phone or get charged by Tesla. it isn't hard. I'm not going to question anyone's need. PHEV, EV, we're all battery powered, we all get to charge.

    No, you weren't ignored... you were one of how many thousands of people who send him stuff daily... just no luck getting noticed is all. Best we can hope is enough people saying the same thing to get on the radar.

    Tesla Offers $2,500 Infotainment Upgrade

    I have and then it was cancelled. They ran out of the upgrades and was then on back order, told me to reschedule for a month later and they should be caught up again... I haven't bothered yet. Now with things as they are, not sure I will try again until the fall.

    Austin tire installation?

    Just got my first set after 37k. Got it at the Costco on 183 and MoPac. Decent pricing even against tirerack.com. Right now there is a $150 kickback from manufacturer.

    Tesla lowers deposit (out of main)

    Exactly. The refundable deposit cannot be Tesla's cash, it isn't Tesla's money until they deliver. They get to earn the interest whever it is sitting however. The $100 is income as it isn't refundable so it is booked immediately.

    Went by Friday and early Monday and as the above person noted. No power yet...

    Well, Texas has had 8 years of EV inspections so hopefully, they're getting it down pat by now.

    Supercharger - Giddings, TX

    Starting to look a lot like little joy for Texas Ren Fest and getting a top off charge in Giddings (camp mode ftw). There always the two destination chargers in Brenham...

    Outrageous $5000 repair bill after warranty expire!

    Sorry I like the front end of the i8, but the back end looks like a comb over...

    Outrageous $5000 repair bill after warranty expire!

    State law. Each state law in fact. Some states you cannot buy extended warranties over the phone or internet (FL I think, I know there was one). Some it cannot be the same transaction, all kinds of funny going one. I'm guessing it is consumer protection so you aren't pressured into them...

    Firmware 2019.28.X

    Holy crap... People at superchargers... racing, playing chess against other cars charging. Oh the horror!

    2017 Ms P100d Max Charge Rate?

    My best on 11/2017 Model S is 130 for a several minutes at the lower charge level, it tapered into the 110' until I got over 50%.

    Software Update 2019.20.x

    If you fast charge, Tesla will permanently throttle charging

    11/2017 100D, 28k miles, set a new charging record for herself, 125 kW. I've never tried to limit at a (DC) supercharger, but have only seen at AC sources.

    Sentry Mode Catches Hit in Parking Lot

    Oh but it is. Everyone who doesn't put one on say, 'It ruins (pick one: the lines, looks, aerodynamics).' I say, it's the law, I put one one. It's like speeding... when people say they've never been caught. Doesn't make it legal and boo hoo when you get a ticket for it.

    So...who's buying the "enhanced anti-theft" accessory?

    Tesla installed the module and my BlackVue still works as expected. The place in Houston that installed it said it should be fine since they don't use the spare connector that was in the camera/mic housing.

    Official: Model S Service Plans

    Your prepaid expires some period after new purchase. At least that what I was told. It was there until 6 months or 3, I forget.

    Tesla day at the Capitol - March 6

    1 year inspection instead of two isn't a loss in that you pay double, just lose the hassle of inspection in year two. Tesla told me it was something silly like the car was a transfer and not inspected by an instate dealer/seller so some crap...

    Infinite Mile Battery Warranty [Now] Being Honored By Tesla [Issue Resolved]

    I thought that somebody has offered the best answer already. He has BOTH a normal degradation of the battery AND and bad module that caused the range estimate to be 'wonky' and die suddenly at the low end. I would have thought Tesla pulling and testing the battery and or testing it via 3rd party...

    Tesla day at the Capitol - March 6

    I try to mention the irony of the Texas EV rebate not allow Tesla, being a US built and designed car, but My Ford Energi built in Mexico did.

    Infinite Mile Battery Warranty [Now] Being Honored By Tesla [Issue Resolved]

    Sorry, but you really lost me there. I've seen hundreds, no doubt, of cars on the side of the road and with the one exception of the burning Beetle, couldn't tell you their model. People passing you honking are jerks, but you are really playing the pity party poorly saying it's because you have...

    Supercharger - Fort Stockton, Texas

    Man, a new charger and there is already a line... ;-)

    Software Update 2018.50.x

    We are already at 2019.06 (6th week of the year) or about 8 weeks from the 2018.50 release. Could be a bigger next version or lots of testing on something (or both).

    Sigh, smash and grab

    FYI... none of the vehicles shown above were Teslas... people here make it sounds like there is a Tesla only rush. So, sample size matters. I suspect people are right that somebody might hit a Tesla over a Tercel, but since smash and grab seems an opportunity crime, an alarm sticker might be...

    Reduced options lose this S owner

    Yeah, no new Model S for me in 10-15 years if they don't bring back the sunroof option! Oh, I'd really like a darker blue too.

    Official: Model S Service Plans

    Yup, just doing the even year maintenance... and still planning on selling the TSLA stock at 3 years 11 months to buy the extended plan. So far, the stock is still well over the additional cost for FSD and the 4-8 year coverage on not buying on day 0.

    Sigh, smash and grab

    Correlation <> Causation. Simple as that. Coincidence likewise <> Causation. How many other crimes are not enforced to get to the more serious crimes. How many other cars are being broken into? How many other cars with similar rear windows are also broken into so the rear seat can be pulled...

    Best smartwatch recommendation?

    It depends on your eco system. Apple and RemoteS; Android and whatever works there. I wouldn't pick a system based just on a watch app. Your phone will dictate how you go. I used a Pebble for the longest time and then it was self-killed by selling its IP but not the hardware. I have an iPhone...

    Last major release was almost 8 weeks ago... hoping this means first 2019 release is a big one and holding it for more validation.

    Model S Technical / Mechanical Issues

    IIRC there was a time limit that Tesla hadn't been enforcing as to the free usage account... or are you using your own account? Also check if you are on the data limited agreement (fairly recent and rare). Just thinking of ideas...

    Software Update 2018.48.x

    Been quiet for 6 weeks. Hope they are doing extra testing for the first 2019 patch.
