    Supercharger - Lincoln, NE (610 W O St)

    Chargepoint in Nebraska

    Most of the chargers are from a grant from the Nebraska Environmental Trust. They have a list of about 20 companies and ChargePoint seems to be the easiest and cheapest to work with. For the home charger rebate The Nebraska Environmental Trust gives money for rebates to the Public Power...

    Rear Ended After Installing Mods

    When a destroyed Tesla can go $25k+ at auction it makes it really easy for the insurance companies total them out. Parts for Tesla required repairs can get expensive where these salvaged cars to not replace all these parts. The insurance would have to pay for them. For example if you are in...

    Picked up my Tesla in early December, worst car I've ever owned.

    Are you driving on 20 inch wheels that are flat? Even at 100 mph+ in 32 degree weather with properly inflated tires I can get 180 to 200 miles. For the charging it must be at a really low rate to only get 22 kWh. For 20 minutes of Tier 1 charging it should only be ~$3.40. Your math is not...

    Cybertruck News

    Elon, why do you do this to us? Do I keep the Dual Motor Model 3 with FSD AND get a Dual Motor CT or trade the the Model 3 and get the Quad Motor. Dual Motor CT ~ $38k after tax credit Quad Motor CT ~ $32k ($80k CT - $8k tax credit - $40k trade in) Yes, I know it's way to early to make...

    Discussion: Tesla Vision system for Model 3/Y

    I went from radar to vision only and believe I'm stuck with it even if I remove FSD Beta. In 2 months I don't think it will be an issue but the auto headlights will still suck.

    Have I locked in a price

    Eliminating 7 camera's is only going to save $175. You still need the reverse and mirror camera along with the computer. It would cost more to leave the camera's off then to put them on.

    Charge port door stuck, service center cancelling appointment

    Do you have a 2017-2019 ~VIN under 120,000? If so there is a known issue with the motor that has a small part that wears out. In the Midwest with rain, snow and ice, most people have had it fixed by the mobile ranger. It takes 5-10 minutes to swap out.

    Wiki MASTER THREAD: Actual FSD Beta downloads and experiences

    I had a 100% until Saturday until about 6PM where it dropped to 99%. Around 11AM on Sunday I got it back to 100% and received the update. I love my steering wheel that I've had for almost 2.5 years. Using FSD with it is a totally different experience vs. manually driving. I could see how...

    Sold my Model 3 to save for Cybertruck

    I'm in a very similar situation. My original plan was to trade in my Model 3 for a Cybertruck Dual Motor with FSD (~$65k). New plan is to keep the Model 3 w/ FSD and get the Cybertruck Dual Motor no FSD (~$55k less $10k credit = $45k). That is a $20k savings. That one year delay is allowing...

    Escort Max 360 (non-c) band segmentation problem with Model 3

    I have the 360C with 9 & 10 enabled with no issues. It should be the same as it's just the 35.6 - 36.0 GHz range. I did have general issues about a year ago that was fixed by reinstalling the software.

    Notification when charging to 100%

    You will get the notice when you charge to 100%. It is just letting you know to not do it all the time or let it stay at 100% for an extended period.

    How many will look into the F-150 Lightning?

    Reservation ~#15,000 for the Lightning. In 6 years my dad went from saying electric cars are stupid to wanting me to get him one. The Cybertruck design was a little much but the Lightning will be perfect. His requirements were a normal looking truck, large "navigation" screen and to be able...

    Cybertruck production likely delayed....Post your best guess of WHEN for the record!

    Thursday March 24th, 2022 is my guess. That will give them a week after the delivery party to move them out of state and legally sell them before the end of Q1.

    Samsung and Tesla sign a half a billion dollars deal for Cybertruck cameras

    I envision the removable trailer cam being like a GoPro. You could stick to the back of of a trailer for going places or under the truck like Ford has. It will give the off road group some freedom to get creative and the regular people functionality. With that being said I would only spend...

    In February Musk stated he'd release renditions "in about a month."

    I wish the Model 3 had the new Model S steering wheel

    So I've had a similar wheel since 2018. I liked it so much I currently have a carbon fiber one that I got after the white one Like not having a binnacle it took about a week to get use to. For parking lot turns it took a couple weeks but that could easily be improved with a software update...

    Charge Port Door Not Working - Not missing the chip

    Question Regarding AP vs FSD vs Beta FSD

    Yes, please post the video. Some of the "nags" are for situations when the system needs human intervention. For example it suddenly can't tell what lane to be in or where the lanes are. If you are not getting the instant "Take over immediately" warning I would be concerned.

    Tesla experience living far from a Service Center

    I'm 3 hours from a major service center and the rangers are great. They were just out a couple weeks ago for a HW3 upgrade that only took about 90 minutes. They also replaced a window for me in the parking lot of my work. That alone saved me half a day that I didn't have to take off work.

    Factory Pickup?

    The issue is the sales tax (Texas is 6.25% + up to 2%) so it would cost me an extra ~$1,650. The other issue is if the state they are produced in can even sell them directly. I would pay an extra $500 to $1,000 for a delivery experience that included a tour and a mud track to show us what...

    All prices are subject to change. For example after I ordered my Model 3 the price was lowered for some options. I originally agreed to a price and final price was actually lower. With that being said your truck could still change in price and we will not know until it gets closer.
