    2016 MS Interior Color Change

    Man, your need to control strangers is strong, isn't it?

    2016 MS Interior Color Change

    I'm not sure why you feel the need to project your infrequency in facing this real issue on me as if it somehow discredits our experience in some sort of an effort to change my mind. It's kind of odd and I'm not sure why some people on this forum are so bent on arguing over the silliest things...

    2016 MS Interior Color Change

    I'm well aware of preconditioning, what it is and what it can and cannot do. It's helpful in some situations but not all. Short and frequent stops will leave the seat exposed to the sunlight and each time you get back in the surface of the seats is super hot. The examples of this being...

    T-Sportline TSS wheels for 2022 Model S

    No idea on the new car's wheel & tire widths as I don't have one so I haven't researched that topic at all. Being as I buy used cars (I let others take that depreciation hit) check back with me in about 4 years. ;-)

    Supercharging on a really hot day

    I think just not quoting my post would have prevented confusion as it would have been clear you were replying to the OP rather then my post.

    2018 Black MS 100D - PPF protected since new / near mint condition / 16k MI one owner

    Your listings have some conflicting info. The Craigslist description says it has Enhanced Autopilot (EAP) and your listing here says it has "FSD" so which is it? There's no mention of Subzero or Ultra High Fidelity Sound (UHFS) packages so does it include these options? Lastly, you mention not...

    Supercharging on a really hot day

    We didn't notice this during our summer travels across the US. I think there's other factors that play a larger role than this but it wouldn't hurt to just budget a little more time just in case.

    2016 MS Interior Color Change

    FWIW, when I was seeking our first Model S, I would only consider those with black interiors. After owning one for a brief period I discovered that black seats become very hot in sunlight. Even with dark tinted windows they are difficult to sit on even if sitting in the sun only a brief period...

    Supercharging on a really hot day

    It doesn't really impact the time. At least not in a negative way. If anything, the slightly higher heat helps the speed on the front end slightly. You shouldn't notice it either way, really. The one thing you may notice is that if it's really hot out and you're hanging out in the car with the...

    T-Sportline TSS wheels for 2022 Model S

    Keep in mind that the TSportline 20" wheels for Model S are also rated for the Model X which is a heaver vehicle. This means that the 20" wheels are quite a bit heavier than you would think due to needing to be able to handle the added stress of the Model X. The 19" wheels are only made for...

    For Sale - 2017 Model S P100D, Low Miles

    I post when misinformation is being presented as fact. This presentation of make believe as fact is what's "muddling" the topic. Case in point, your very post claiming to not understand the topic yourself but then openly scolding me for providing the very information you lack. You can lead a...

    T-Sportline TSS wheels for 2022 Model S

    The first thing I do whenever I buy a car that has 21's on it is to pull those off and replace them with 19's. Often something from TSportline. They're lighter, ride better, get better efficiency and offer more tire options at lower prices. They don't look quite as cool but are far better fair...

    For Sale - 2017 Model S P100D, Low Miles

    We're in agreement then because we both agree that it _should_ but the reality is that it doesn't. I know there was fine print when they changed that to just the original owner so their legal bases are covered in that respect. Whether they told you are prominently displayed them are another...

    Model S Plaid hits OVER 200mph for first time EVER

    If there is a warranty issue that comes up and Tesla can prove that your modification directly caused the failure in question the can refuse to fix said issue under warranty. The onus falls on the manufacturer to prove it under that act. In legal speak, it doesn't void the warranty, it...

    For Sale - 2017 Model S P100D, Low Miles

    It's not complicated so long as you accept reality which is what was already stated. These are facts on FUSC and how it does & doesn't transfer, not opinion. The in-service date on this car appears to be 9/15/2017 based on the warranty expiration date. This is WELL beyond when they stopped...

    Is it ok to share the title and registration photo to a online buyer for auto loan?

    Lending institutions these days often require a picture of the front and back of the title. You can share this as there's really no risk of fraud with the image of a title that still shows your name and info (I would imagine if things are this serious you understand the buyer probably already...

    Model S Plaid hits OVER 200mph for first time EVER

    Especially considering it's a Tesla Model S Plaid. You're gonna need that warranty. The only question is how many times.

    For Sale - 2017 Model S P100D, Low Miles

    This isn't accurate. Just because a car has lifetime free supercharging does not mean it transfers. The problem is that people often confuse the two different types of free lifetime supercharging that had a clear line of delineation based upon date ordered and delivered. Specifically it had to...

    Model S 2021+ refresh Plaid/LR Homelink performance

    LED bulbs in your garage door opener can interfere with the signal dramatically. Make sure you get LED bulbs that are shielded specifically for garage door opener use. My guess is this is probably what your experiencing as I don't have any of the issues you described.

    Enhanced Autopilot back

    For most, EAP is the difference in using Autopilot regularly or not at all. All of my friends who didn't get EAP/FSD almost never use their highway Autopilot on their AP 2 cars. The biggest problem is that you have to take it out of AP every time you want to pass someone. It becomes more...

    Rooftop Tents

    You would still have to s/u and tear down your tent every time. You wouldn't be saving much. For the scenario you described, if you absolutely can't find other places to put your stuff (frunk, lower rear well and my wife and I have even been known to move stuff from the back to the front and...

    Rooftop Tents

    In my experience from my 4x4/overlanding days, RTT's tend to be 1) overly expensive and 2) a PITA. It will absolutely annihilate your efficiency too. Like 50% or so which will make for some stressful legs between charging that would otherwise be a breeze. Do NOT underestimate just how impactful...

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    It's not really "bad" software so much as poorly optimized or even bloated software. Hardware and software go hand in hand. Your software can only develop so far until your hardware runs out of the ability to process it. That's a big reason why MCU1 is limited in terms of features and options...

    To MCU2 or not to MCU2?

    How did you go about requesting the update via the app if it's not an option in the "Upgrades" section anymore?
  30. Ostrichsak

    To MCU2 or not to MCU2?

    Anyone notice that the option to upgrade the MCU1 to MCU2 is no longer in the app? I hadn't checked in a while previously but I thought it was there under upgrades. If it was, it no longer is.

    Enhanced Autopilot back

    I believe you pay registration tax on things like EAP/FSD if the car has it at the time of sale since new car registration takes total purchase price into account. Something to consider. Another reason why I still prefer AP1 over AP2.

    To MCU2 or not to MCU2?

    That's always been the case.

    Used 2021

    I know it's semantics here but that's technically the subject of this thread, so... The entire community has been calling the 2016.5-2021 Model S with the updated front end the "Refresh" so it's easy to see how this could be confusing for those not aware of this. For everyone in the community...

    How to improve yoke buttons for $8

    Sometimes the simplest solution is also the best. Now, if only Tesla would offer a traditional round steering wheel with regular buttons I'd probably buy a couple of them new Model S things.

    Load Sharing Gen 2 and Gen 3 HWPC

    It's a simple task in terms of the number of steps that are involved but it's important that you understand that any one of those steps done incorrectly could result in your house burning to the ground. That's not hyperbole either. If any of that scares you you should get a professional...

    Good article on tire pressure

    It's important to understand the basic fact that the other poster and I are talking about: Elevation directly affects the displayed pressure versus what the pressure is in the tires at any temperature. So, when we say we "target" 42psi that's just what the car says the tire pressure is. At...

    Good article on tire pressure

    42/43 is what we target as well. This is a difficult enough dance given our temperature fluctuations and it's affects on tire pressure. 81 degrees one day then 20's the next. It's made even more difficult given we have roughly a 3psi shorter window until we start getting warning messages and the...

    Good article on tire pressure

    I just wish Tesla would add an algorithm to the cars to factor elevation on the TPMS reading. The car knows where it is so this should be simple enough. Where we live at elevation it's off by 3psi and that's even worse at higher altitudes. Couple that with the temperature fluctuations and you...

    Load Sharing Gen 2 and Gen 3 HWPC

    You need either gen 2 x2 on one circuit or gen 3 x2 on two circuits. You can't mix & get load sharing.

    2017 Tesla S 100d long range for sale - Silver Metallic

    To have transferrable free supercharging the car needed to be ordered before mid-January 2017 and delivered before June 2017. If the car was ordered after 1/14/2017 then the free unlimited supercharging is for the original owner only and wouldn't transfer. Also, no mention of Subzero or UHFS so...

    How Did the Service Center Move My Car?

    You want a crazier example of Tesla being able to drive a car w/o a key fob? Due to a miscommunication (they claim) Tesla drove 45-minutes to my wife's work and picked up the loaner car they loaned us while our car was being fixed w/o even so much as going into her office. She was left stranded...

    Use Ludicrous+ to precondition for CCS?

    The preconditioning for Superchargers typically activates the last few miles before you arrive. I think it would help as any amount of pack heating is better than nothing.

    Limited Time: 100 kWh Battery Upgrade (S/X), Ludicrous+ Capable, 2 Year Warranty

    I don't see an option for a P90D/P90DL upgrade path. Was that intentional for some reason or just an oversight? ETA: It looks like that post was updated to add that info. Thanks!

    Use Ludicrous+ to precondition for CCS?

    That's basically the same thing the cars do to precondition the pack for optimal temp for Supercharging.
  47. Ostrichsak

    Use Ludicrous+ to precondition for CCS?

    The OP isn't talking about spirited driving for a few miles before charging. They're talking about activating Ludicrous+ mode which causes the car to warm the battery pack to get it to optimal temperature for power transference. In theory, this should be similar to the preconditioning process...

    Are the front seats of the Model X and S interchangeable?

    I absolutely hate the "Premium" seats as a larger human being, width wise. I'm north of deuce-and-a-half with an athletic build and, after having owned all versions of Model S seats save for the newest version that just came out, these "Premium" seats are easily the least comfortable. If they...

    Tesla App opens wrong garage door

    The main problem isn't necessarily that the functionality of the homelink via the app is clunky and cumbersome but they make matters worse by continually changing its functionality without any notification or explanation. It seems now that the app defaults to the last homelink device you...
