    Other Owners in Wyoming?

    I did not know this! I moved here in 1999 and was told the front plate was mandatory (as it was in Texas, where I came from), so I didn't question it. Think my front plate might be getting loose and could fall off, who knows? Car definitely looks better without the front plate.

    Other Owners in Wyoming?

    I got my 2019 Model S from SLC in May 2019. I've had mobile service 3 times (Voice command button quit working, battery replacement, recall notice on the frunk latch) since then and it's always out of Boise. They are awesome! My plates also were temp from Utah. Not an issue when registering in...

    Premium Connectivity paid for but showing as expired in Tesla account

    An update. The local service center sent me a message that I had to take this up with Customer Service, and gave me an 800 number to call. I called, was on hold about 15 minutes, then was helped by an agent. He acknowledged there was a problem on their end. After another 15 minutes, he conceded...

    Premium Connectivity stopped working on my 2019 Model S. I have it on Autopay with a credit card, and the card has been charged. When I look up my Tesla account on the app (or on a computer), it says that Premium Connectivity "Expired Feb 1, 2022". Problem is, it's still January... The Tesla...

    I wonder if Tesla has started allocating some overhead costs to the cost of operating Superchargers. Cost of electricity, amortized costs of the hardware, installation costs, and management costs. And there's probably taxes being paid too.

    That was a brutal story. Apparently the pedestrian's head came *through* the windshield. The AG has no idea how the body ended up in the ditch. His investigators are looking for the deer for questioning.

    Congratulations to the Porsche Taycan folks as the current EV Cannonball Run record holder vehicle!

    My 914 was fuel injected. But it was only a 4 cylinder from 1976. That was a fun car...well balanced, low center of gravity.

    Anybody with a really good experience?

    I ordered a Model S last year, picked it up in Salt Lake City in May 2019, never having driven a Tesla. It was a smooth, easy, unrushed, friendly, simple experience. The delivery specialist took his time to explain everything, answered all my questions, had the car charged to 95%, was unrushed...

    Subtract all time spent charging from the total time. That eliminates any advantage due to charging times. And eliminate minimum charging times at any given station. Can a participant run the course from East to West instead, using the same end points?

    Ordering new TPMS?

    I bought a set of winter wheels, tires and TPMS from Tirerack.com. The TPMS cost $59/tire. Everything worked perfectly all by itself. The car recognized them with no issues.

    Grand Teton/Yellowstone accessibility in Model 3

    Ya know, you're right, to my surprise. Rock Springs is 150 feet higher than Jackson. I'm just so used to Jackson being at a higher elevation relative to everywhere I travel, I didn't double check that. Sorry about that.

    Grand Teton/Yellowstone accessibility in Model 3

    I've made that trip many times. Winter and summer. It's about 170 miles. It's uphill from Rock Springs to Jackson, and there's always some wind, so that hurts the range. But the speed limit is relatively low, so that extends your range.

    The charging station is in the free public parking garage at Millward and Simpson, right by the Snake River Brewpub. There are two parking spaces, divided by the charging station. The station has two plugs. One is a CHAdeMO and the other is a CCS1. I don't have either of those adapters, so I...

    Supercharger - Casper (Evansville) WY

    I'll second the motion for a supercharger in Shoshoni. Or Riverton. Otherwise, Jackson to Casper isn't really possible at 279 miles and a lot of elevation changes + wind.

    It's not price gouging if the buyer isn't distressed. It's just a seller asking what he wants to get. Get over yourself.

    They do, but Tesla construction seems to proceed in a sporadic fashion. There will be no activity for weeks or months, then a crew shows up for a week. They may finish, or they may disappear for another period of weeks or months. No real way of knowing when they will finish.
