    Not really. Some op to get the Performance be because of the extra like the nicer wheels and calipers.

    JD Power ranking of cars quality

    Lol Not surprised Tera ranked near bottom. https://www.theverge.com/2022/6/29/23188085/jd-power-initial-quality-study-2022-tesla-polestar-ev-decline?fbclid=IwAR26BjVP1G-UOGJulht6WP7eG-DDJsvO4w2NHA4q0k0z3h24-82yv70v3Ss&fs=e&s=cl

    Mine on these recent continental DWS06 after 2k miles on them. Approx 310Wh/mile. Previously the Michelin Primacy MX after 40k+ miles. Approx 300 Wh/mile. However when new for the first few thousand miles, it was over 320 Wh/miles.

    From San Jose, CA to Los Angeles, CA

    I’ve done that route many times. My recommendation is first enter in the destination on your Tesla map. See where they suggest you. Along the way before reaching the first SC, change the destination to that SC and see if the batter estimation is correct and let it recalibrate. For me the stop...

    Ioniq 5 vs Model Y

    Bmw iX is 88k. I4 is 55k they all suck whe compared on range. Bare in mind that Y is AWD and still has over 315 range. While everyone else have below 270 and even some below 240 work AWD trim.

    Ioniq 5 vs Model Y

    Agree. As they are raising their prices they are entering territory of true luxury vehicles like BMW and Mercedes who have much better built quality and materials. Their advantage is the dealerships are far more accessible than Tesla service centers.

    Update And Cellphone

    I had similar. Had to remove the Bluetooth and re add it. Oddly it set the very volume to off.

    Tesla Customer Service ...... IS HORRIBLE

    Better to just go to the SC and return it? Their customer service is the worst in the industry. Should start logging complaints with BBB

    When is ultra Long Range battery coming?

    That sounds about right. My MS 2015 with 128k degradation is about 11%, give or take. I think new was 232 and nowadays 210-212. Odd I got 170 last at 80%

    Hmm 🤔 those urban chargers are new. Didn’t see those before

    When is ultra Long Range battery coming?

    Long range would be useful with off route. Going to Yosemite or Sequoia where charging is limited and SC are outside the national parks gate. Another useful is in cold weather where you can’t charge higher. Otherwise, works fine for daily commute or standard routes. Like LA to SF or LA to Vegas.

    Ioniq 5 vs Model Y

    Had a road trip up the California coast from south to north. Counted dozens of Tesla on the road. Six Rivian. Two Ford Mach E. Three Kia EV6. One ID4. One BMW i4. But haven’t seen any Ioniq5 on the I5 or 102 route.

    Supercharger - Kettleman City, CA (LIVE 15 Nov 2017, 24 V2 + 16 V3 stalls, lounge)

    Nope. But I should have. At the same time, my mind set is, they have five people staffed walking around and they should be more observant. They should’ve setup a cleaning schedule check list and post it when was the last cleaning check occurred. On a different note, the kid play things are...

    Tesla portable wireless battery

    Anyone bought one of these and the wired ports not charging the device but wireless works on an iPhone? I tried three different cables and same issue. Tried usb a and usb c as well.

    2022.16.1.1 is now rolling out globally.

    Anyone notice this version, including 2022.16.1.2 the EV routing calculation has been not as accurate when it comes to % when reaching the SC and destination? Not sure if it is a coincidence with me changing tires from Michelin Primacy MX to Continental DWS06 Plus or the update, both occurred at...

    When is ultra Long Range battery coming?

    One thing I forgot to note. Driving a Tesla will lessen the range anxiety than other vehicles. Tesla, with their vast charging network and real time SOC EV charge routing integration in their map, it does a pretty good job telling you when and where to stop. Other vehicles like BMW or Hyundai...

    Seems like they cut back on cleaning crew lately. The last couple of recent visits, restroom smell bad urine and floor filthy.

    Good to know.

    When is ultra Long Range battery coming?

    I get where you are coming from. The first few years of owning an EV, is a bit daunting. But over time you will get used to mentally plan and account for destination and lessen your range anxiety. I was as such the first couple of years with the MS. At the time, at100% I was getting 230...

    Price increase? [posted 06.16.2022]

    It’s features vs quality. Tesla better range, AWD, super charger network, BMW, better interior. No gaps better quality built. Crap range of get AWD.

    Signature Glass Tinting Costa Mesa California

    Did four cars with them. All came out great. I did my MS. Great service, no pressure sales. Only gripe was they were a bit far for me to get to. But the day I drove the MS off the Costa Mesa delivery lot, I drove directly to them.

    Tinting Sunroof?

    Instead of tinting, how about mesh shade?
  29. smilepak

    IceCo Freezer

    Thanks. That is helpful. Any idea if the bottom part of the trunk will fit the length dimensions?

    NEW MODEL Y 18 inch at Tsportline?!!!!!

    Wasn’t at one point EU version of MY offered 18s? I am really interested in how much range improvements are there.

    Do you use a windshield sunshade?

    I use heat shield for years on the MS. Cover all five windows. https://www.heatshieldstore.com/?gclid=EAIaIQobChMIvJvg77Gu-AIVMQJ9Ch0zlw7uEAAYASAAEgKOCPD_BwE

    IceCo Freezer

    Anyone here has an IceCo Freezer or similar in size of the JP40, (https://icecofreezer.com/products/iceco-jp40-portable-fridge)? I am curious how well does it fit in the trunk and being able to open the lid while it is in the trunk of the M3? I have no issue with it in the MS and looking to...

    Supercharger - Baker, CA - StackCharge

    Interesting 🤔 Would make better sense to open it at the old thermostat lot. It would attract more to eat at their on site restaurant than charge and go to Arbys

    How many will look into the F-150 Lightning?

    I’ve been curious about this for a long time. What changes to a home is needed to even allow usage of your vehicle as a battery? Just disconnect from The grid but plug it to the same nema 14-50 outlet used to charge the car?

    what’s your range now after 1

    Wow 😮 I haven’t see that for awhile. This morning I was at 192 for 90%
  37. smilepak

    what’s your range now after 1

    Sorry accidentally press enter before completing the subject. Curious to know what’s everyone range after 7 years of ownership? My 2015 70D gets 216 at 100% or 191 at 90% approx after 127k miles.

    Supercharger - Barstow, CA - Tanger Way (LIVE 26 May 2022, 20 V3 stalls)

    Unless Barstow put up some clean restrooms and air conditioning waiting area, Yermo will continue to be my stop. 😂

    Continental PureContact LS vs Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus II

    P7. Had it, went to Michelin, going go back to it. Low road noise. Quiet. Good handling.

    Long term PPF?

    Good to know. Doing it front bumper and front hood. I might end up with that. And ceramic the rest of the car to maintain the same shine.
  43. smilepak

    PPF or Ceramic?

    Which one of the two if you have to chose one? And why?
  44. smilepak

    Long term PPF?

    Anyone has PPF on their Tesla for more than 5-6 years? How is it holding up? Have you run it through the automated car wash? Do you wax or claybar your car now that you have PPF? Trying to assess the cost over long term durability of it. It’s like over 3-4K?

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    On the flip side. You lose FM and XM radio. When rebooting the MCU, it reboots the driver console at the same time. It takes longer to reboot. You get a faster screen responses. Entertainment with YouTube and games. Browsers still suck. 😂
