    Best home charging solution for a M3 + Prius prime household?

    My father-in-law will be getting his Model 3 in a few weeks. They’ve already got a Prius Prime Advanced and I’d like to get them set up with a good system for both. What should I ask the electrician to install? They’re in Augusta Ga if anyone has any good recs for installers in that area.

    Any other VW GTI or Golf R converts?

    Golf R Mk 7.5 to Model Y Performance. I loved my R. It was my favorite car ever. I needed a bigger car and I wasn’t going to go slower so MYP had to be it. There have been some adjustments but I’d say no outright downgrades aside from the incredibly sure handling of the R. That thing felt like...

    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    Thanks. I am new to TSLA for sure. I’ve never owned a single stock that gained so much so quickly. When I did the options thing, it was a frequent occurrence and taking profits was the thing to do. I know it’s not the right thing with a stock. I’m holding.

    I’m tempted to take some off here. Someone talk me down! Jeez. 15% gains in 3 weeks. Edit: correction 17%

    Ordered Model 3 for father-in-law.

    My father-in-law wants a Model 3. I placed the order for him. I didn’t think it would get added to my account, but it was. How do I get it to him? He doesn’t have a Tesla account yet.

    That’s not true. I can trade pre-market with TD Ameritrade. I just have to make sure to select extended hours in my order.

    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    And, sure as the sun rises in the East, someone will say “a hardware manufacturer can’t maintain these margins”. Apple has proved them wrong for years. I suspect Tesla will do the same. I got on the AAPL train in 2001. I’ve made a few bad trades in the intervening years and didn’t invest as...

    AS Tires for MYP

    I spent about $1400 to replace my summer tires with Continental DWS06+ through Discount Tire. There are a couple of threads on what size tires to use since the OEM sizes are both hard to find and not exactly the ideal size for the car. I think I went with 265/40R21 on the fronts and 295/35R21...

    Wiki Selling TSLA Options - Be the House

    I learned some really hard (and costly) lessons back in 2013 playing options. I was up huge and lost a ton. Left the entire market for years. Now, I just go long stocks I like and hold. This strategy feels better to me. The only reason I was looking at covered calls is because it feels like a...

    Wiki Selling TSLA Options - Be the House

    I’ve got 92 (that was the money I had to invest) so I could still sell one and risk a few hundred loss if it gets executed. 🤔

    Wiki Selling TSLA Options - Be the House

    This is probably a very basic question and likely answered in here already but I haven’t been able to find it. I have x shares. If I want to sell covered calls, can I sell just on those x shares? Or must it be in lots of 100?

    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    I think this is written from a technical analysis point of view. They don’t move unless a pattern is confirmed. The pattern the article says is forming is a double-bottom confirmed by hitting that 1202.05 price. As I said earlier, you could give a TA trader a chart with no ticker symbol and...

    Model Y on 100% charge not showing the advertised range

    How much warning will I get? Range anxiety is still real for me since I haven’t taken many long trips yet.

    Model Y on 100% charge not showing the advertised range

    When planning a road trip, do the supercharging stops give enough wiggle room for these decreases in range as you drive? For example, my first road trip, I was projected to reach my destination at 11% charge. I decided to stop midway to recharge because that seemed too low for comfort. Had I...

    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    I gotta look up call spreads. No need to post a tutorial here - that’s not what this thread is for. But it seems to be something worth knowing about. Edit: I take that back. If one owns the underlying stock, how does one do this effectively? Let’s assume I own 100 shares for simplicity’s sake.

    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    Rather than pay cash for my MYP, I decided to invest my money in TSLA. Average cost is right at $1000. I’m already up double the amount of interest I’m going to pay for my 2.49% loan on my car. Nice Christmas gift here. I know gains aren’t really actual gains until I sell but I feel ok holding...

    S3XY buttons at Abstract Ocean

    Rear seat heaters. That’s a good idea. I don’t remember seeing that as an option. You know that pressing the button on the end of the left stalk activates the wipers, right?

    No Software Update

    The big one is waypoints while navigating. I am just now installing 2021.44.6 after having been on 2021.35.102.2 since receiving the car at the end of November.

    Latest Software Update?

    Same here. Also in NC. My first update since getting the car at the end of November.

    Should I buy it?

    Check with Carmax too. But go where the money is best. The only issue with trading in to Tesla directly is the lead time - your estimate might be great now but who knows what it’ll be like when your car is ready? Not to say that they will intentionally change their offer but, as the saying goes...

    Should I buy it?

    Yes. But I’d check other places to sell your car. People have been getting insane prices for their used cars. But, to your question - definitely do it. There’s no reason not to.

    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    Probably, yes. If they were to offer FSD for free as an opt-in, I could see people going for it. We do it with gmail and a whole slew of other services. Yes, driving habits are more personal than marketing emails but people are willing to give up all sorts of privacy for free goodies. Would I...

    I wonder if Tesla has thought about selling safety score data to other insurance companies.

    How much would you pay for brand new Michelin AS from a new MYP?

    In a striaght line, there’s likely no impact to speed. But, to be honest, I would not take the Y on a hard curve at speed in any tires. I was in a situation this morning where I was merging onto a highway and the road was a little slick. I don’t believe that the Y is sure-footed enough to...

    How much would you pay for brand new Michelin AS from a new MYP?

    If they were local, I’d pay close to sticker considering how hard they are to find. But that’s because, in my area, all seasons are really all I need for the winter. Out in Boulder, they might be less desirable.
  33. T

    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    Interesting thoughts. The marginal cost of FSD for Tesla is close to zero. It would make a whole lot of sense for them to use it with their insured. Services revenue is the golden egg of next gen tech. All the big boys are doing it - Apple, Amazon, Microsoft. All of them.

    S3XY buttons at Abstract Ocean

    I have no such concerns. It’s just a dongle that plugs into the car. There’s no electricity added to the system. It draws a small current from the car itself and the buttons themselves are not directly to the car’s system. Besides, it’s completely reversible and undetectable. I wouldn’t worry...

    Anyone thinking about an VW ID.4 Instead?

    Just to chime in on the CarPlay issue - I used CarPlay in my 2018 VW Golf R for over 3 years and only had issues a handful of times. It was perfectly usable and I prefer it to the system in my MYP. The Tesla system is fine but I prefer to use the apps on my iPhone from the head unit. Streaming...

    There was literally one post that was mildly critical. And even that was (trying to be) good-natured. At least it was only intended to be good-natured. I’ll refrain in the future. No need to take further action - message received. If you choose to do anything further, I’ll understand. Peace.

    So in the past 4 days, we’ve had many multiple pages talking about the windshield wiper on the cybertruck, colonizing mars, inheritance tax code, and Elizabeth Warren. Not a chat room, eh? Suuuurrrreee, mods. 😂

    Hand a technical trader a chart without a ticker symbol and they’d still tell you how they’d trade it. It doesn’t matter one bit to them what the company does.

    Is this a good deal for Model Y?

    Here’s a thread detailing some of the subtle differences between the 2020 and 2022 models. Unless you’re saving a significant chunk of change or need the car yesterday, I’d seriously reconsider buying the car you are looking at.

    Newb question because I got a couple posts deleted and told “this is not a chat room”: how have the last 20 odd pages not been mostly chat room level discussion? I didn’t count, but I’d guess 7 of those about the wiper. Just trying to understand the rules of the road in here. Not sure what all...

    Is this a good deal for Model Y?

    Is FSD worth that much to you? I got my new MYP, 2022 model year, for just a hair over that. Sure, no FSD but it’s a new car with full warranty. I’ll never understand people paying new prices for used cars.

    Phone for unlock/lock and media access only?

    That’s a thought. It’s not like I’m worried they’d just drive off. They just don’t need they level of access.

    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    I’m a long time AAPL (and new TSLA) investor. These times can be incredibly frustrating. My advice is don’t get stupid and panic sell or buy weekly options. If it’s a good company and you believe in their fundamentals, buy and hold. Only the most skilled (and lucky) day traders can survive...

    Phone for unlock/lock and media access only?

    Is it possible to set up the Tesla app on my kids’ phones to allow them to lock and unlock the car, use media and coinage but not drive? As in, they’re outside waiting for me to unlock the car while they both have iPhones on them. It’d be great if they could just get in the car so I don’t have...

    But why would they? Yes, right now, demand is far outstripping supply but to assume that will continue, even for the medium term, would be an unwise business decision. Considering this the investors forum and thread and not the Tesla fanboi thread, I would think that we’d want them to make...
