    Supercharger - Aiea, HI (6 stalls)

    People who don't live in Hawaii don't understand the challenges of building anything here. Permitting process is tedious and a nightmare and construction costs here are at least 25% higher than on the mainland. It will take just as long, if not longer, to build a supercharger site here as it...

    Supercharger - Aiea, HI (6 stalls)

    Rail guideway built from Kapolei to Airport and moving to Dillingham. I've seen the trains running for tests a bunch of times. Maybe someday in the next decade, we'll finally be able to ride it. ;)

    Waiting Room: Refreshed Model X 5/7 seats

    My estimated delivery is October. I ordered first week of November 2021 to secure the pricing on car and FSD. I'm not in a super rush to get a new X but will be interesting to see if my delivery date gets pushed back to.

    Supercharger - Aiea, HI (6 stalls)

    If people just obeyed the arrows in the lanes, it wouldn't be an issue. Just waiting now for mall management to complain to Tesla and then take the Superchargers away over petty charger fights because owners can't be adults. 🤦‍♀️

    Come on people, we should be grateful we have any. Some of us have been waiting over 7 years!

    Wiki FSD’s Earliest Adopters Still Waiting

    I've been on FSD Beta for over a year and my driving style has become 95% FSD/AP, 5% manual driving. In the beginning, it was definitely dangerous and you'd have to be extra aware while driving. I'll admit, it was stressful using it back then and the car did do unpredictable things. But...

    Where do you car wash your Tesla on Oahu?

    I only wash my car (at home) when it's really dirty, otherwise I just use a waterless car wash spray. Maybe that's an option for you?

    Hawaii Superchargers

    It's not a distance thing here. There are many owners who live in condos who don't have access to home charging. There just isn't enough public charging here to support significant EV growth. Demand has proven to be strong here as the 6 superchargers are pretty full during the day. Plus, about...

    Wiki FSD’s Earliest Adopters Still Waiting

    I was on FSD Beta 10.6.1 before the camera update. After update on 1/10, the same FW version got pushed so have been stuck on 10.6.1. Good news is FSD seems better. I hated 10.6.1 before. Not sure if new cams have anything to do with it.

    yes. maybe I was the guinea pig for them to figure out upgraded cams were needed. lol

    Wiki FSD’s Earliest Adopters Still Waiting

    I’m an EAP FSD Beta tester with 2017 MX75D. Have been getting regular updates for over a year now except for 10.3. Had cameras upgraded last week and firmware pushed was 10.6.1 which I already had. Had hoped new cams would keep me getting regular updates but while all the other OG beta testers...

    Permit is still open for the 12 chargers. Hope we see them expand to the original site and keep the plug and play site.

    Car delivery

    That's how they're delivering cars now. Just take a look at the entire car carefully and take lots of pics before you drive it. Report any issues on the app for them to fix. They're pretty good on fixing stuff post delivery.

    Hawaii - Let's Count Teslas!

    Just logged in the first W plate! Hope there's at least one Model X that gets an X plate when those come around! If they're out by then.

    how many chargers are in ala moana now?

    Thanks! Didn't know Chademo doesn't work on the Plaid. Assume that's for the LR refresh too. Hopefully the Tesla CCS Adapter comes out in the US soon.

    News on Maui Showroom/Service Center

    They've been looking for a while. Was supposed to be this year but maybe that site fell through. Hopefully it will finally happen next year. The mobile techs there must be really busy!

    Supercharger - Aiea, HI (6 stalls)

    I think it's just the permitting process. DPP is short staffed and permits are at least 2 to 3 months backlogged. From what I hear, it's still moving forward.

    Hawaii - Let's Count Teslas!

    Well I don't think the EV plate thing is really enforced with chargers so out of state would probably be ok. Maybe it might be enforced on city/state property? There's a lot of military here so there are a lot of out of state plates (until they get their Hawaii plates). It was more for the...

    Hawaii - Let's Count Teslas!

    You also need EV plates for public chargers. I tried to switch to a vanity plate and the DMV lady said I still needed them to use chargers/special EV parking.

    Unattended service pickup

    Did you get your car out?

    Any recommendations for buying/installing tires for my Model X on Oahu?

    Yeah, am going through the service center. Price was better than getting them through Tire Rack and paying for shipping, installation and alignment. Plus, the tires were in stock whereas they were back ordered on Tire Rack.

    Hawaii - Let's Count Teslas!

    There is a supercharger somewhere (might be under construction by now) which is most likely not a public one and just for the resorts/Larry Ellison's fleet of Teslas since it doesn't show up on Tesla SC maps.

    Any recommendations for buying/installing tires for my Model X on Oahu?

    I need new tires for my Model X (22-inch). Anyone have recommendations on tire type/brand, where to buy, and where to install on Oahu besides Tesla? Am ok with ordering on-line too.

    Outer Island Service Experience

    Kauai EV is active with getting charger infrastructure on Kauai. It will be a grassroots effort to find a site/property owner who would be willing to install Tesla chargers since Tesla is focused on superchargers for Oahu first, then Maui.

    No Plaid S in Hawaii yet. Deliveries just started up again this weekend after the hold. I think we'll see first ones get delivered in August.

    2021 Model S Long Range Refresh

    I would think that Plaid S would be delivered first and they just released the delivery hold over the weekend. I'm guesstimating September for our Plaid with CF delivery and August for Plaid S with wood interior. But who knows, LR S could come out by September too.

    Ala Moana Tesla Chargers

    Unless they've changed the policy recently, owners are not allowed to use those chargers as they are for the test drive vehicles. I've seen employees charge their cars there too. They may let you charge if you are extremely low on charge and other chargers in the mall are full.

    Hawaii - Let's Count Teslas!

    Spotted my first “T” plate yesterday on a white Model Y! Also heard there are more than 6,400 Teslas in the state so our count is way off with only around 2,700. 😱

    Tesla Service Big Island

    There are no fees for mobile service. And you won’t get thru to the service center. It’s all app based. If you are on Facebook, there is a big island tesla owners group that can probably answer all your questions.

    There is mobile service on the Big Island. If it’s something they can’t fix, Tesla will have the car shipped to Oahu.

    Best areas for photographs

    Unpaved area at end of Sandys. Road is rough though so drive slow. Also Botanical gardens in Kaneohe, Tantalus viewpoint overlooking city. Can’t think of anywhere with a closer up shot of windmills.

    Hawaii Superchargers

    Probably just universal charger to meet requirement. Shopping center is small and owned by Kamehameha Schools. Don't think their beneficiaries would appreciate supporting Tesla super chargers. o_O
