    apologies if this has been asked/answered already

    Thx for the input. I’ll probably get the JDaptor, thx . The issue with putting in another charge unit isn’t the 500 - it’s the labor and wiring and moving things around to make it fit. We ended up with a Leaf at the last minute instead on the Kona - the Nissan dealer honored the factory...

    apologies if this has been asked/answered already

    I know - I have one of those to charge my Tesla at other chargers. I am looking for a Tesla - J1772 - to use my home HPWC with a non-Tesla vehicle.

    apologies if this has been asked/answered already

    I suspect it has - but I did a quick search and didn't find it. I own a 2016 Model X 90D, with the 72 amp onboard charger. And I set up a HPWC on a 100 amp dedicated circuit - it works great. We are likely getting a 2nd EV - a HyundaidKona - for my wife. I know, the Model 3 is the same price -...

    So Like it has been a Month, What If..

    I predict: DELIVERY schedule will be met as promised for those who order. But at much lower actual production numbers....as many reservation holders will not order. This is based on my experience with my Model X. I reserved in October 2015, by which time they had stopped advertising the # of...

    Total Solar Eclipse - Aug 21, 2017

    Thanks for the feedback. I went by the Tesla store locally to ask, they said 'yeah, the app showing availability is having issues'....nice to know it isn't just me - but frustrating for it to stop working now. Thanks for the tip on those HPWC's....especially coming back from n Monday, it will...

    Total Solar Eclipse - Aug 21, 2017

    I am driving up Saturday to Madras, OR (from Sacramento). Klamath Falls SC, then Bend SC....I am hoping it's not too crazy. Going up I'm feeling pretty good about....but coming back after it's likely to be crazy. My nav has quit showing stalls available at super chargers....is anyone else...

    Opinions on putting 255's on the front to replace 265's?

    so...I'm at the point I need to get a new set of tires. I have an x90D, it came with continentals, 265/45/20 on the front and 275/45/20 on the rear. However, it appears some were delivered with 255/45/20 on the front, with the same 275/45/20's on the rear....on the same rims, I believe? I...

    Is this preowned a good deal or should I hold out for a P100D with APHW2

    I own a June 2016 build (vin 64xx), so just slightly older - almost identical, except I didn't get the high fidelity sound, and I got carbon fiber. And no P. Ok, so not quite as nice, definitely not as fast! Just a note, the white seats are NOT leather. But I've done over 25000 miles, and they...

    About to pull the trigger, but need some quick advice, 85 or P85?

    For 2K more, I'd take the P. Check out the pricing on something new and the differential from a 100D to a P100D. A LOT more than 2K.

    Financing at 1.49%

    Unfortunately yes. That's not financing - if you in CA the bulk of that is sales tax. 7.25 to 8.25%, depending on country. That adds up to 5500...add in 1200 destination charge, and license and registration, and you're pretty much there. Now if you're paying up front financing fees that may be...

    What is your battery capacity 1 yr out?

    I took delivery of Nikki on 6/7/2106, a X90D. I have driven 23k+ miles, my 90% is now 224. For the last few months it was 225 and my 100% was 250 or 251.

    WTB: Tesla luggage

    I saw a post with a cool Tesla bag that was given away as a prize...someone had qualified for two. It seems that is the only way to get it. I also saw it was sold almost immediately, I thought 'cool, maybe I should message them...', then scrolled down, and it was gone. I would love to buy...

    The Perfect Tesla Raffle

    Got my ticket this evening...#99. They seem to be selling well! I'm not sure what I'd opt for...l love my x90D, with free supercharging and white ventilated seats. The ONLY option I'd change if doing it over would be 6 seat instead of 7. And now that there is a 100D, of course the bigger...

    Is tire damage covers under warranty on initial tires?

    thanks again - took a look at the other thread, some good ideas there. My tire pressure warning was on again, so I stopped by a little hole-in-the-wall place and got a used tire for $50 - that way I'm good for a few thousand miles and I can do the whole set at the same time. I talked to...

    Is tire damage covers under warranty on initial tires?

    Thanks for the input, everyone. Kind of what I thought. I'll probably replace both rears to keep them consistent and keep the one at 4/32 that is still good as a spare. I've definitely read on here about all kinds of opinions on tires...so will go back and read some more and figure out what'll...

    So I got my car back from service and the app is stuck in "Vehicle in Service"

    When I called the service depth they insisted they closed out the order. I was going to call tech support, after restarting both the app, phone, and car did not resolve....but the next day it just started working again. Go figure

    Is tire damage covers under warranty on initial tires?

    i had my X in about a week ago for a faulty door latch, and just had the remaining tread measured at 4/32 on the inside of the rear tires (@15,800 miles) - wear was even all around, just 1/32 less on the front. They inflated all to 45 psi. I have the original 20 in continentals. I figured I'm...

    So I got my car back from service and the app is stuck in "Vehicle in Service"

    I got my Model X back yesterday from service, same issue. I called today, they said the work order is closed....but I logged out of the app, restarted the phone, and did a deep reboot on the car. All still unsuccessful. I will call in to tech support tomorrow I think...if I get any resolution...

    my first real road trip in my model X

    To be fair, a 5% level at arrival felt 'safe' when I was within 40 miles or so (in other words, I showed 50 miles or less of range left), no major hills, and not a lot of traffic. Since I know what it takes to 'get' the rated mileage, 5% of 255 is about 13 miles. And 13 miles is over 25% of...

    Dude, really?

    I personally like the charge point in the rear. I like to back into my garage and if the charge port was on the front I'd have to run the charging cable the length of the car. It's much more convenient to have it on the rear. For charging away from home I could see it being more convenient to...

    my first real road trip in my model X

    agreed, the flexibility in charging stops was nice - as well as the option to go up 99 or 5. In terms of it wanting to force more stops, there might be a setting about how much "reserve" to keep that I need to change. As I mentioned, my biggest takeaway from the trip was around getting...

    my first real road trip in my model X

    wow...I've been drooling over the Zero for awhile. So far I've resisted a test drive - that was what did me in for a Tesla. Have to pay off the X first. But they aren't that much...

    my first real road trip in my model X

    it was pretty accurate on elevation changes, I think - but realistically over the grapevine was kind of a wash, as the up and down even out. I went to Reno, though - definitely a big hit on range going up. If you have enough for a round-trip and you uphill first, you should be fine...

    my first real road trip in my model X

    I just thought I'd post me experience. I previously posted about driving from Sacramento to Sunnyvale and back, so I needed to stop at a supercharger - but that was one stop. The last few days I made my first "real" roadtrip depending on the supercharger network. I have an X 90D - usually 254...

    Any recent CA owners apply for the $2,500 CVRP rebate?

    FYI I got my X on June 7....but didn't apply until 1 day after they ran out of money. So I was pretty close to the top of the waiting list, and I got my 2500 about 10 days ago.

    Dilemma: put HOV stickers on or not?

    So...to the comment on needing to 'pay to play' - I DID! I bought a 100k+, 100% electric, ZEV car, I registered it, I paid almost 9k in sales tax, and then I paid the extra $22 for HOV Lane access. The question was really about the risk/cost of a ticket for not having the sticker on, making my...

    Dilemma: put HOV stickers on or not?

    one of the perks of owning a Tesla is the ability to have access to carpool lanes. I live in the Sacramento area, work in Roseville - so on a daily basis, HOV access isn't really a big deal. However, once or twice per month, I have to drive across 80 and down 680 to Walnut Creek. And ever other...

    Model S - gray silicone key fob (slightly used)

    no takers? In case I wasn't clear, this is FREE! I may just give it to the DS at the Rocklin service center to give to a new owner. But I'd be happy to give it to anyone who can use it....PM me if you want it :)

    At 45, I should be better than this!

    Gforced, I totally get it. My Dad is a mechanic and a true 'car guy', so I grew up around all kinds of cars. His taste is more in the classic side - he has a restored 1929 Model A. But this car is nothing like anything else I've owned or driven. My Dad got to go for a quick ride with me when...

    At 45, I should be better than this!

    Such a great thread. My name is Dan, and I'm a Teslaholic. I have been a fan since I first saw the roadster, then started reading. Then I test-drove a model s in 2013, and was a goner. I started saving, and negotiating with my wife. I have almost zero headroom in the S - with the panoramic...

    Model S - gray silicone key fob (slightly used)

    I bought this about a month or so ago: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B017OU8F96/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o06_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 I have an X, but was hoping this would work. It did, "kind of" - but not great. I used it anyway, until I got a new one from Abstract Ocean made specifically for the...

    Delay your request?

    No, in Oct 2015 I put down a 5000 deposit for a 'spot in line'. I wasn't able to configure and actually 'order' until mid-January...at which point I had 7 days to make changes before my order was 'confirmed'. Now people get to skip the whole 'put $$ down for the privilege of waiting in line with...

    Delay your request?

    I put in my deposit in Oct 2015, confirmed end of January this year - for an X 90D, was told to expect delivery mid-year. Then I saw a new house, and decided to sell my house and buy the new one the beginning of March - put down my deposit, got approved for the loan, etc. Then all of a sudden I...

    When does the Honeymoon end ?

    I have had my X 90D for two weeks and two days. So far over 1200 miles (my old car got about 10K miles total over the last year). Any excuse to drive it, run an errand, etc. I log in to the app to check on it every few hours if I'm not driving it. I am getting Xpel and Opti-coat on it - but...

    Key fob case?

    Key fob case?

    I picked up my X on Tuesday! I'll give my initial impressions below, but first, the point of this post: I understand the key fob for the X is slightly different than the S. I want to get some kind of case or holder to protect it - but I've searched all over online and can only find a case or...
