    Front cooling louvers

    Thanks for writing back! I think it was around 52-54° f during the session described above. But regardless of if the louvres are opening or not, this charge curve is suspect. I even drove the car hard for a while before charging To warm up the battery. Oddly I even managed to get higher peak...

    Front cooling louvers

    So I got the car back from service with the replaced louvers. When I touch them now I can feel that they give a little But I’ve only now seen them in the closed position. However, I just now tried supercharging at a V2 station and only got as high as 80 kW at 30% state of charge. At 54% I’m now...

    Front cooling louvers

    So finally took it in for the louvers and a couple other things. First off - what a nightmare trying to get a loaner from modern Tesla service…. anyways they wanted to charge a diagnostic fee first and ultimately 630+ just for these louvers (which as far as I’m concerned should be covered by...

    Front cooling louvers

    the louvers do not move, making it likely it’s the motors.

    Front cooling louvers

    Thanks, I’ve been meaning to explore that for a while. As an update still haven’t observed the louvres in the closed position. Currently charging in cold weather 52% at 30 kW…..this is ridiculous. Had dropped the vehicle off at a service center for a suspension noise, I know the frunk was out...

    Front cooling louvers

    So I’ve been experiencing slowish supercharging for example at 61% getting 38 kW …. That’s worse than our egolf :/….but it seems like it’s slower than usual in cold whether. Now, I’m wondering if one’s louvers are permanently stuck open, can that prevent the battery from warming up enough when...

    New 85kWH battery for my 2013 P85+

    Glad to see some positive results for replacements. Just charged today with our 85d from around 35% to around 65% and never reached higher than 42 kW. So the same speed as our 2016 e-golf….I wonder when it will finally be productive to request a replacement based on charging speed being nerfed...

    Plaid range decline

    More likely than anything the bms hasn’t had enough time + variable states of charge while the car is asleep to Calibrate accurately. It’s my understanding it skews towards being conservative. There’s a great post about it somewhere here…

    Tesla autopilot is too strict on rules

    I’ll have to test it out more closely re speed cap, but re radar, I’m pretty sure the legacy AP1 cars couldnt have gotten rid of radar as they only have the one camera.

    Need Help Convincing Spouse To Buy

    Sounds like there might be a lack of education on the subject. Maybe slowly introduce pieces of the puzzle bit by bit, and eventually the history books will be on your side. But before then when her myopic rage has been channeled elsewhere, will be less resentment

    2021+ Model S Tail Lights Modification

    As far as getting darkened/smoked taillights I know diy car guys use something called VHT nightshade or something along those lines.

    Automotive Arms Race.

    I have since learned that the two times are for slightly different finish lines which exist for historical reasons, and it can be easy to mix up when comparing runs of different entities.

    Tesla autopilot is too strict on rules

    As a legacy AP1 user, I have found in recent(last couple years?) versions that nagging is much more aggressive on sketchier roads/stretches (hates those invterted lane marking past the grapevine) . Also have been put into autopilot jail more often and with more variable causes, including while...

    So what actually IS a charger then?

    i Believe EVSE is the technical term for the unit that delivers power to a charge cable

    That looks like the slower plaid lap time, too. Wonder who sits around the 7:30 mark….

    Rattle noise coming from front Air Suspension (2017-18)

    Gotcha, different severity of suspension failures, lucky I took it in or maybe would have ended up with the broken piece of suspension. i Would say that (knocking issue resolved) the drive/suspension feel incredibly tight/smooth.

    Rattle noise coming from front Air Suspension (2017-18)

    Just wanted to add my experience to the communal knowledge pool for debugging of clunky/rattle like noises coming from the front of a 2015 S85D At first I thought it had to be the front drive unit motor mount or something because it would click/thunk the most when going from accel to regen and...

    Tesla changed my Plaid Plus to Plaid

    never attribute to malice what is better described by incompetence, and Tesla’s beuracratic/business/service aspects are the weakest link of the company.

    Is Tesla honoring the $120K price for order placed before the hike?

    Incorrect, they mentioned a new thermal system (with big heat escape) that allows repeat performance Non-stop.

    Does anyone wave anymore?

    The Tesla community has gotten so large I see waving less… that said I regularly notice and oftentimes salute any all-electric vehicle on the road, regardless which EV I’m currently in. Toyotas get a 1 finger salute and to eat my dust hehe.

    I traded in my Model S for a Prius Prime

    Any more affordable used gen 1 EV could fit the bill for your ‘low end runaround car’ much better, inherently more reliable without oil changes and orders of magnitude less moving parts, also with cheaper running costs. Also, supporting a company like toy which has singlehandedly attempted to...

    I traded in my Model S for a Prius Prime

    Reality check - it can’t. Good luck with a low range EV ~90 miles let alone this. Might as well not pretend and just get a full on gas car to cut the complexity and unreliability in half.

    Radar deleted on all new Model Y and Model 3. Is FSD worth it?

    Nobody forcing you, but points for hyperbolic faux outrage. Also, the Qoolaid flows both ways.

    Tesla MY haters on the highways

    its amazing to me when people in larger vehicles (newer model trucks etc) choose to drive them like hatchbacks. Asshole ratio = size of vehicle/speed.

    Model Y full charge range

    There’s a good post here showing how the bms is calibrated over time with multiple soc And it being asleep then. basically this is an estimate that can be calibrated.

    I traded in my Model S for a Prius Prime

    It’s because this is disingenuous. There are other viable EVs…and he chose a gas sucking Prius

    I traded in my Model S for a Prius Prime

    Toyota is the absolute last brand I would consider buying. Not only are 99% of their cars/suvs similar looking and boring, but they are green washing kings. Every car I drove for a period of about 10 years was either a Toyota or a Lexus. Until Akio Toyoda does an about face, acknowledges his...

    My Model S Saved My Life

    Glad everyone was ok . I’m just curious what the situation is for the lifetime supercharging and premium connectivity in a situation like this Where it’s not your fault - ask if they’ll let you transfer those benefits if you buy a new Tesla? Alternatively, those features should have a value for...

    Radar deleted on all new Model Y and Model 3. Is FSD worth it?

    I’m sure when they’ve validated parity or even advantage, that’s when they’ll switch you over. Until then I expect theyll have parallel codebases/ neural nets for radar/non-radar cars, like a development fork. If that never happens and camera only never supersedes legacy sensor suite (I expect...

    Radar deleted on all new Model Y and Model 3. Is FSD worth it?

    That’s not true, nobody has enough information to say this unequivocally regardless of some of the inane rantings you’ll find from people with too much time and a bone to pick.

    Its like nobody told most American drivers basic highway etiquette, they just stay in the fast lane going speed limit.

    Radar deleted on all new Model Y and Model 3. Is FSD worth it?

    Consumer reports have lost credibility over the years. But there sure are plenty of armchair quarterbacks who never built a driver assist system, let alone have access to Tesla’s vast AI pipeline project. Exciting stuff.

    Radar deleted on all new Model Y and Model 3. Is FSD worth it?

    NHTSA requires new testing for any non-trivial changes that could impact the safety systems. Obviously a radar-deleted version is novel so doing a new rating is business as usual. Just like ap1 v ap2+ you’ll get your feature parity…..and, judging by the progress we’re seeing on FSD, “and then some”

    Radar deleted on all new Model Y and Model 3. Is FSD worth it?

    It feels like these forums are full of conspicuously anti-Tesla trolls these days. A simple thread went all over the place with hyperbolic fudding around… 4 pages of useless vitriol (With exceptions). my take - fog seems like an obvious use case for radar, so that’s the initial shortcoming...

    Tesla ordered to pay $16K to each customer for batterygate

    hopefully Tesla do it to do right by their OG customers if not to pre-empt a similar nhtsa ruling

    Supercharging taking more than hour

    Bottom line if they degrade the product (timely supercharging ability), the warranty needs to be extended. They’re changing the goalposts of the warranty via proxy of charging speed limiting. This would be An ok trade off for a longer warranty.

    Supercharging taking more than hour

    well we have news out of Norway that they’re being forced to address nerfed supercharging. Hopefully this picks up steam and Tesla give their North American customers the same courtesy. If not to do the right thing, or to standardize procedures across markets, to get ahead of any nhtsa Recall

    I traded my Tesla Model S for a RAV4 Prime

    Never going to buy a Toyota again ever. Screw Akio Toyoda, exec heads need to roll at that company for their failure to even support the worlds transition, but their willful oppression of the future in favor of profits. Toyota, until he is fired and most of the execs who let them become what...
