    Any chance some Solar Roofs from Buffalo may be getting transported to Europe, to get a foothold over there?

    Ship Tracking - Tesla

    I've been following the shipping from USA of Tesla carriers per the attached link for some time. Tesla Carriers They have originated from San Francisco to Europe, China, etc. However this 'Platinum Ray' is from New York. I haven't noticed this before. PLATINUM RAY Current Position...

    Model Y for Australia will come from GF Shanghai

    I think its possible they will come from China. Our close proximity along with New Zealand, Hong Kong and eventually India could make it cheaper for Tesla, besides the labour cost I mean.

    Not able to charge with Mobile Charger

    Really, I could never go back to ICE! I didn't know that was possible. I'll be getting my HPWC connected to my new home soon, electrician has just started the initial wiring. Thanks paulp.

    Not able to charge with Mobile Charger

    Thanks Jamesco - great news for me ... with me just recently replacing my MCU1 I thought my Tesla experience was coming to an untimely end. Really, I could never go back to ICE!

    Not able to charge with Mobile Charger

    I'll be selling my 2015 P85D when I get my Model Y. So my destination charger will still work for the Model Y - great!! And so my Maxicharger for 3 phase will be fine as well - great as well !! I wonder if I can hang on without replacing my mobile charger and just use the Warrnambool...

    Not able to charge with Mobile Charger

    I have shifted residence and don't have my HPWC installed anymore, so I was just relying on my Mobile Connector for charge. Warrnambool Supercharger gone now of course. I intend to reinstall in my next residence although I'm hoping to get a Model Y when available so I guess my HPWC won't be of...

    Not able to charge with Mobile Charger

    Worked fine in a local destination charger, so mobile charger is stuffed. Is it repairable - I believe this is the original mobile charger used in Australia circa 2015?

    Not able to charge with Mobile Charger

    Over the last day or 2 I hace tried to put some charge into my Tesla. It just so happens I had a software update waiting so on the off chance that may help the situation I tried again to charge at home. 'Red Light' fault still apparent. On close inspection of the cars' port, it appears one of...

    Supercharger - Warrnambool (VIC)

    The Supercharger at present, has no power. Also was unpowered yesterday. I notified Tesla yesterday, said they would send a technician. I tried again just now, no go. Notified Tesla again. The Supercharger is also not appearing on the in-car map.

    MCU upgrade/replacement for early vehicles

    Just had my MCU1 replaced yesterday. Looks like price has come down somewhat. FYI. When I needed to charge from home from and keep ahead of phantom drain, using a 240v x 10amp outlet, the maximum rate I could charge at was 240v x 2amp!!

    Can't seem to be able to start a conversation with you?

    Two phase x 40amp per phase, offer to my property. What should I do?

    Thanks everyone for you input. Much appreciated. Shallowal, does that follow if it were an 8kW Inverter, with same panels, I would then max out at 8kW with 9kW of panels? When it is low level sunshine, and still max export of 5kW to the grid. Would they penalise me as the period of time I could...

    Two phase x 40amp per phase, offer to my property. What should I do?

    I'm about to start a new build and requested an upgrade in service to the property. I live in Warrnambool, Vic. I have today been offered the above service. The house will be 'all electric'. viz., Daikin ducted A/C, Stiebel Eltron Hot Water Heat Pump, Tesla wall Charger, Electric oven and...

    MCU Failure AP1 car

    No, I don't close them with the handle. First off, I was having issues with the front right hand side handle, it wouldn't retract. Took it to service centre, they had a fiddle and it started working again. Then soon after the rear right door wouldn't come out. They then replaced both handles...

    Thanks for the suggestions and help guys. The flat bed quote is over $1000 for Warrnambool to Richmond.

    Thank you. About 3.5 years ago.

    MCU Failure AP1 car

    Yes it is surprising to have failed for me again. Car was ~$193k new. The first failure was about 3 years ago. I've yet to hear a quote for repair, but expect it closer to appointment time or when the MCU arrives. I've recently had 2 door handles replaced as well.

    MCU Failure AP1 car

    Yes, it did not turn on one day. It did start with a warning like: Please wait for the system to start, or something like that.

    MCU Failure AP1 car

    Just a heads up for those interested. I've had my second MCU failure since I bought the Model S back in 2015. The first time the replacement was under warranty, this time not. As I am about 260km from the Melbourne Service Centre, the car will need to be flat bedded back to Richmond. The thing...

    Supercharger - Warrnambool (VIC)

    Please note that CCS charger on East side of the 'skid' did not work for a Model 3 owner today. I offered to swap sides and then we were both able to charge.

    Autopilot 1 - Reads and Adjusts Automatically

    For me it has only been recent that the car has registered an 80 km/hr zone as 80 km/hr, it was frequently indicating 30 km/hr instead!

    Autopilot 1 - Reads and Adjusts Automatically

    Another clip, this time reading temporary speed restriction signs. Would this support the camera reading the sign rather than GPS?

    Autopilot 1 - Reads and Adjusts Automatically

    I believe if you adjust the setting to +5 km/hr then Autopilot allows you to go 5 km/hr above the speed restriction signs.

    Autopilot 1 - Reads and Adjusts Automatically

    This was taken on the same day as my previous video, (more blurry - sorry, and why I didn't post it then). After leaving Port Fairy towards Warrnambool, the TACC automatically increased the set point to 100 km/hr from 80 km/hr at the posted sign. Hope you can see that clearly enough .... I...

    Autopilot 1 - Reads and Adjusts Automatically

    Here is the video clip showing autopilot 1.0 adjusting the speed set point automatically from 100 km/hr to 80 km/hr then to 60 km/hr. I'm unsure whether it is triggered by the speed restriction sign or GPS, either way I hadn't experienced this before. I'm currently on software version -...

    Autopilot 1 - Reads and Adjusts Automatically

    Just finished a short 100km highway road trip. As we know, our Teslas have been reading traffic speed restriction signs for some time (with 30km/hr - 80km/hr issues). Today, with Autopilot engaged, the car reset the TCC speed per the sign automatically. So I went from 100km/hr to 80km/hr then to...

    Superchargers in Australia

    Good work wpapua. Its a start I guess, temp spots are better than nothing and it should hold true for their promise of completion for 2018. However, I'm definitely with you re the permanent location opposite Bunnings.

    What’s your 90% in Rated Range on an 85KWH Model S

    The maximum range that I recall, just after getting the car, was 404 km with 100% charge.

    Supercharger - Keith SA

    If I remember correctly, it was the same issue in Adelaide for the Big Battery Event, but chocks may have been added since.

    I wonder how long they will keep the temporaries available - until the permanents are done would be nice. :)

    Tesla battery event Hornsdale

    I'm not a TOCA member - yet, however I'm extremely thankful for the work they are doing coordinating charging opportunities for the event.

    Tesla battery event Hornsdale

    Thanks for the suggestion Richard. I'll probably be staying at my daughters in Kaniva for an overnight charge on Thursday. Maybe a top up at Murray Bridge Showgrounds and another spot in between, prob where I intend to stay overnight.

    Tesla battery event Hornsdale

    Just received an invite now. Maybe not as many as hoped are taking up the offer? I would really like to go, but again its the issue of finding places to charge. Has anyone checked the Clare Showgrounds for 3 phase x 5 pin? Or any other showgrounds in the area for that matter for those with the...

    Supercharger - Warrnambool (VIC)

    I agree wpapua! I did send in a request for that area not long after I got my Tesla. I frequent that area a lot when I visit Warrnambool (would be ideal for me anyway). I've never seen the huge parking lot anywhere near half full when I have visited.
