    Supercharger - Hilton Head, SC - William Hilton Parkway

    Like your WSJ article. Very cool but no I didn’t take a pic. Maybe tomorrow or Sat when I head back N

    Supercharger - Hilton Head, SC - William Hilton Parkway

    It’s live. Charged there today. Tesla lettering is not lit up on stall but they are active and it shows up on the map in the car.

    Tesla and Hurricane

    Thanks @DavidElg. Confirmed that Tifton, GA works fine as well despite saying Temporarily Closed on the Nav screen. Heading to Tampa via Lake City next. Hope Lake City is fine too.

    Tesla and Hurricane

    Can anyone confirm if the Superchargers in Florida have remained open? My son is traveling from Georgia down to Tampa and the Superchargers on the East Coast of Florida as well as Ocala, Gainesville and Lake City are listed as Temporarily Closed on his center console. Same Temporarily Closed...

    Supercharger - Old Lyme, CT

    From July 1 to today, there have been 126 new Supercharger openings around the world. 10x greater than predicted above - no apparent slowdown. A Christmas miracle perhaps. ;) Still no movement seen in Old Lyme but Wtby opened about a week ago.

    Tesla wall connector question.

    Green light should always be on. You can dial down the amps from the car as desired.

    Supercharger - Old Lyme, CT

    Disappointing. Perhaps Old Saybrook will be more receptive. There is a Big Y grocery store just off the highway with 2 Level 2 charging stations. Maybe a good location for Superchargers now.

    Anybody successfully transferred M3 reservation to a family member?

    I ordered as a surprise gift for my mother. I put the car in my father’s name so it would be under his insurance. Not an issue at all. Place the order and then just put your daughter’s name and address in when asked for owner details. Since I paid for the car at delivery, I needed to be...

    'Start Designing' ... but should I ?

    There are still Deloreans on the road today. Life is way to short to worry about a slim possibility of Tesla going bankrupt. The Model 3 is an awesome car that will make you smile every time you drive it. Buy it and enjoy!

    Where do your get your winter tires changed?

    Tires and rims. I bought a second set when I bought winter tires. I don’t like the idea of removing the tire from the rim each year. Having two sets allows me to do things myself including rotations (need a spare wheel to rotate tires as I don’t like using jack stands.)

    Where do your get your winter tires changed?

    I do mine in my garage at home. About an hour of effort. Just finished taking off my winters and putting back in the OEM all seasons.

    Supercharger - Old Lyme, CT

    Did anyone attend Monday's meeting? The agenda is published but the meeting minutes were not. Looks like a decision may not be final until 4/18/18. 2. Site Development Plan/Special Exception Modification Application to permit the proposed Tesla Motors, Inc. Electric Vehicle Charging Station...

    Any CT M3 orders being processed?

    CT Model S owner. Day 1 reservation fro two Model 3. Invited to configure on Jan 8. Took delivery Jan 27th but in Florida. I purchased the car as a gift for my mother. She loves it and I am really impressed. I don't see the quality issues mentioned elsewhere. The car is a home run and...

    Supercharger - Old Lyme, CT

    Great to hear there was representation from both the Company and owners. Can you provide a little more insight into your comment. Is the town looking for something specific from Tesla - other than patronage from us at the local establishments as we charge our vehicles?

    Supercharger - Old Lyme, CT

    I wonder why things like this take so long. Did anyone attend the meeting? Minutes from the meeting indicate a decision was tabled until March 12th. Does that mean that the public hearing component is complete? Other items in the minutes indicate Public Hearing to continue. Excerpt from the...

    Danbury, CT Supercharger

    I don't believe the car senses an adapter unless you are using the Tesla adapters with the new Gen2 UMC. If you are just using a generic 14-50 to 14-30 adapter with the Tesla 14-50 plug, the car will attempt to draw 40A. Model 3 NEMA Adapters

    Danbury, CT Supercharger

    just a suggestion - Get the car first and use the 30A line for awhile. You may find that the 30A circuit providing about 20 miles of range per hour of charge fills your needs. Of course, if not, you can then just rewire.

    Danbury, CT Supercharger

    Danbury construction appears complete including transformer and meter. It just doesn’t seem to have been energized. Was there this weekend and no progress to report.

    Awesome Tesla Commercial during Super Bowl!

    Actually - Elon indicated 1:30PM Florida time. While one could assume that is Eastern Standard Time - one should also know that there are many places named Florida that are not in EST. Rhis gives Elon an out if there are delays. ;) How many places are named Florida?

    New England Model 3 Configuration Invites

    Took delivery this morning with my father, wife and daughter. The car is simply spectacular. Much better than I expected. We were all really impressed with how the car rides and I don't think the UI and off center speed is an issue at all. Revealed the surprise to my mother and she was...

    I’m taking delivery in West Palm Beach tomorrow. Should be fun.

    New England Model 3 Configuration Invites

    This is exactly my concern. Similar to you, my family and I are flying down to Florida tomorrow to take delivery and then surprise my mother with a red Model 3. She has marveled over my Model S but it may be quite different when the Model 3 is her car that she is driving everyday. Excited...

    A joke, or just plain incompetence?

    For what it is worth - seems things are starting to pick up pace. I am a day one reservation holder and Model S owner. I was invited to configure Jan 4th. Placed an order for the Model 3 on Jan 8th as a gift for my Mother in Florida (I live in CT). Was told 4 weeks. Got the VIN on Tuesday...

    Is there an EAP trial after Model 3 delivery?

    I am in the process of purchasing a Model 3 as a surprise gift for my mother. Since it is a surprise, I can't ask her if she'd like to have autopilot. Consensus in my family is that she will never use it. I asked my DS if I could get a 5 day grace period post delivery to see if she'd want...

    New England Model 3 Configuration Invites

    Well - more interesting news. Car has been built and is in transit to Florida. (Clearly they are building the cars on spec rather than to order like they did with the Model S) It will be there on Jan 23rd ready for delivery. Now I need to figure out logistics so my family and I can be there...

    Change from alcantara to cloth on PUP???

    I had a 2014 Model S with non Alcantara on the dashboard or the headliner. When I bought my 2017 Model S, it came with Alcantara on the dashboard but the headliner is textile. I am very happy that the headliner is not Alcantara. Looks much cleaner and doesn't show fingerprint lines when...

    New England Model 3 Configuration Invites

    I received my invite to order. Placed a reservation for 2 Model 3s on 3/31/2016. I called the home office in CA as I’ve decided that one order will be for my mother who lives in Florida. Was told no problem with order or delivering the car to Florida. Order has been confirmed and expecting 4...

    None of them were lit this evening so I’m not sure the rumor is accurate.

    Supercharger - West Hartford, CT

    I’ve charged there before at full power getting 340mi/hr and 120kW. Admittedly, I haven’t charged there in awhile but I’d suspect cold temperatures impacting speed of charge more so than throttling. Just a guess.

    Supercharger - Hadley Mass (I-91)

    Drove by the site today and the workers had dug the trench and were working on the conduits. No photos but at least there was progress. Charging will be behind the building at the back of the property.

    Textile seat vs Tan Leather seat

    Scotchguard. The textile seats wear much better than leather, which stretches and wrinkles over time.

    TPMS now double in price!

    . By corroding do you mean yellowing in color? Mine have a yellow tinge to them which I assume it from the salt during winter. Is that what you are seeing?

    TPMS now double in price!

    I just brought my winter rims which were from my older 85 and had the TPMS changed as the new system doesn’t read the sensors from 2014. Tesla SC did the job in less than 1 hour and they charged me $70 per wheel plus $120 for labor for a total of $400 installed. Worth it IMHO.

    @MurrayJimW Any update on your ability to uncork?

    S will not charge when outside temp is below zero

    That is not normal. I charge at below 0F without issue. Are you plugged in to a 50A circuit or supercharging? Call Tesla and they can remotely log into your car and see what is going on. Don’t wait until the battery is dead.

    200kWh battery, when in Model S/X?

    I have no desire to sell gasoline cars nor will I buy one. As I said in my original post, some folks will benefit from the longer range (i.e., those in very cold climates or folks taking frequent 200+ mile trips) but the larger population thinks they need it but will likely spend more money...

    Well sort of...Your use of Fahrenheit to indicate below freezing temps gave you away. ;)

    200kWh battery, when in Model S/X?

    Well who knew I’d fine all the Canadians in this thread. :) Definitely understand the impact of cold and snow. My worst wh/mi was ~475 with temps at -10f snowing and windy. Not a normal day down here, even for VT. And yes we have better Supercharger infrastructure down here for the time being...

    200kWh battery, when in Model S/X?

    I don’t understand the need for such a large battery. I’ve been driving a Tesla for 3 yrs now and am approaching 100k in total miles driven. While I can understand the theory behind wanting a larger battery for the 5-10% of the time you are on long road trips, the need is not really there and is...

    Any news on 100D uncorking?

    I was told that the VIN is not the best way to monitor this as some folks are assigned a VIN and then due to production schedules, geographic location, and such, result in overlap periods. Also - there seems to be a randomness, where by parts are revised and are co-mingled rather than First In...
