    Official Thread: Cybertruck (Cybrtrk) Event - Nov 21, 2019

    Was the air drag coefficient published anywhere? Just curious how it compares to traditional trucks.

    Supercharger - Ritzville, WA

    Thanks, IdaX, Acarney, and Ladiesbff! Should be a lot less stressful, and warmer, trip back! Wouldn’t need it if the weather wasn’t so bad, but low temp, lights, wipers, heater and speed take their toll.

    Supercharger - Ritzville, WA

    So I skipped it today encountered from SEATTLE to Spokane based on the Tesla information that it was out of service. Bad weather required me to to drive 55-60 in a 70 with no heat to make Spokane with 4%. For the return trip, I’ll try it, but does anyone have current info? Thanks!

    Software Update 2018.39.6 8377b4d

    It would help a lot to able to “pin” an app so it isn’t necessary to reopen it each time you get into the car. Personally, I always want the web browser open to the TeslaWaze site.

    Anyone receive a tradein call from Tesla in Seattle area?

    I also have an S85D and a second day one Model 3 reservation-the first reservation bought my wife’s RWD 3 in January. When I made the reservation, I was hedging for the same reasons you outlined-new tech, warranty, shiny, not much out of pocket cost when trading the S. But after driving our 3...

    TeslaWaze updates (was: TeslaWaze is Done!)

    Never mind! Locked up three times today before I gave up.

    TeslaWaze updates (was: TeslaWaze is Done!)

    So since I got 2018.32.4 on Sept 6th, I haven’t had a need to reboot. Could be unrelated. Is anyone else on 2018.32.4 who is still seeing the freeze?

    TeslaWaze updates (was: TeslaWaze is Done!)

    Same problem for me on my AP1 level S85D. A reboot allows the Tesla Waze page to start working again, but I need to do this daily.

    Terrible experience at the Bellevue Square store today

    I stopped by a week ago when I was in the area to see the P3 and was talked into a test drive. I resisted as best I could, but they wore me down. I liked it, but not enough to give up my S85D.

    Terrible experience at the Bellevue Square store today

    Sounds frustrating. I thought they discontinued the “anti selling” of the Model 3:) The folks at the Westlake location are very accommodating, particularly Genny.

    Software Update 2018.21.9 75bdbc11

    (Off topic, sorry, but doesn’t yet deserve its own thread IMO) I use percentage but would rather see both at the same time. Any elegant ideas on how they could display both without clutter?

    LTE connection almost completely unreliable lately

    I’m having similar issues with my 85D. I’m curious if anyone having these issues also uses the Tesla Waze website, as I do? I’m wondering if its resource needs may have started to have some effect when using Tesla’s browser and first gen display hardware.

    Supercharger - Leavenworth, WA

    Glad to hear it, thanks for the update! I’m having trouble seeing the pics, but I take your word for it being underway. Always liked doing a loop on the 20, the 97 and the 2. This will help.

    View Waze Incidents on the Tesla browser

    One of the best things, amoung many, with Eric’s Waze data implementation for our browser is the lack of extraneous clutter displayed. That “clutter” of ads is how Google/Waze makes money. I suspect they won’t be interested in helping their crowd-sourced data be used without being paid in some way.

    What do you dislike most about your Model 3?

    Can’t get TACC without buying $6000 (post delivery) enhanced autopilot.

    [POLL] Will Tesla ever offer a key fob for the Model 3?

    Perhaps the next generation of phones will be designed and tested to work reliably as car opening devices? A fair number of Tesla owners work for the companies that design them. It’s not a solution that addresses a new owner with a older phone, and a fob may well be needed to fill the gap, but...

    Man, I’m already missing this! It’s always been top of screen for me. I feel like I’m driving somewhat blind without it. (I do know about the phone app) Thanks, Eric, for keeping it going so far. Hopefully there is a path to getting it on-line again.

    Hard to make it out of the gravity well carrying all that pork. Should be an advantage for SpaceX.

    WA state registration fees for Model 3

    We were taxed $2111.50 on the $20,500 left after 32,000 was deducted from the total of $52,500. This is about 10.3%, the typical full sales tax rate in this area. Also, for reference, the prior bill that expired July 2015 exempt the entire sales tax amount, regardless of base price of the...

    Change from alcantara to cloth on PUP???

    Perhaps he is referring to the very rare “Primum” package he lists in the description, not to be confused with the ordinary Premium package. In addition to those rare Alcantara skins, it also features: Open Pour Decor-only the best Scotch and Vodka; Fugue lights-when you want to lose yourself...

    WA state registration fees for Model 3

    Yes, we took delivery last week and the tax was on the amount over $32K. (It took awhile for the Nevada based rep to understand this part, but the WA delivery folks had it set correctly).

    Thanks, will do. Edit: Seems to do the job! Thanks.

    Phone as Key Issues

    Security cameras in the garage show the car flashing the lights with no-one near. Yes, we could disable bluetooth or turn off the feature for walk away and walk toward lock/unlock. I'm hoping for a more elegant long term solution. Right now, we are keeping the phones in another part of the house.

    Phone as Key Issues

    I've got a similar issue where the car keeps locking and unlocking as we move about the house with the connected phone. Our garage is below our kitchen area and the distance isn't great, albeit through the floor. Seems like we need the home geofence or some way to reduce the range of the...

    Scheduled for pickup at Bellevue WA January 18th. Two weeks from configure invitation to delivery! Not bad.

    My VIN # 36xx was assigned today. It appears to be one of the ones originally logged as a 2017 (code H) but updated to a 2018 (code J), according to another thread about VIN ranges registered. One day turnaround from configuring on 1/04/18 and getting a VIN today is very promising for a...

    WA State, owner, reserved 2 at store 3/31/16. Just got invite to order both for 4 week delivery, ordering one and defering the other. Wife is looking forward to getting rid of the rental car that is tiding her over!

    Tesla owner configurations begin

    So with the current manufacturing method of building cars and matching to orders later as opposed to build to order, how will someone make sure that a delivery in January 2018 doesn’t have a 2017 VIN? I’d take a 2017 VIN if offered and I could be sure of delivery for a 2017 tax credit, but a...

    That seems to be the first non-California, non-employee configuration email other than a couple that may have originally had a CA address. So it’s of some mild interest to those of us patiently awaiting our invite in the PNW. Oh, it’s fun to enjoy the thrill of waiting for an invite...

    Congratulations! Very good to hear, I know you’ve been ready for some time! So you had not received an email, but instead checked your MyTesla account and it showed a link to configure? (‘Scuse me while I check something)

    Ok, everyone but K-MTG at TMC in CA with the priority qualifications is more less accounted for, at least to my satisfaction.:) Now, since it’s going to be January anyway for delivery, it is time for the PNW! :D Edit: (I just realized that if K-MTG‘s experience is anything to go by, I may have...

    I think you may be right on the floodgates. Once the last glimmer of hope for a 2017 delivery with an assured tax credit goes away, things will calm down somewhat. We will be resigned to either no tax credit or the possibility of one for 2018. (Even with a quoted 4 week week delivery...

    Roadster reservations

    Start a thread analyzing Roadster reservations and delivery date as it relates to SpaceX launches and Elon’s love life.
  43. Nevek

    Tesla owner configurations begin

    Yes, me too. I did briefly think that after the M3 purchase is done, it may be a homey familiarity to have yet another reservation for delivery years out that will be a moving target.
  44. Nevek

    Tesla owner configurations begin

    There is only a very limited opportunity for Tesla to save humanity!:) But why, you ask? Since only by letting me configure and order my M3 today could we make a 4 week delivery, and since the tax incentive may well disappear January 1, it’s only logical that I be invited today in order to...

    [POLL] CA Current owners ONLY. Have you received your config invite yet?

    Waited in line for reservation or at reveal could be interesting. That’s all we’ve seen reported so far for CA owners, I believe.
