    Protecting Charge Cable When Charging Outside

    Use Case: Any BEV Requirements: Home Charging w/ Garage Materials: PVC pipe and elbows (1/2") Tools: PVC Cutter & Glue Difficulty Scale (1-10): It's wonderful in the BEV world to be able to charge at home. If you do, you probably have an outlet or a Wall Connector. And that's great for...

    Ford CEO. Doofus. $5k more for Prius with HOV sticker was not for the 5 minutes he saved via the commute lane. That’s not the ’cost’ of five minutes. You can’t just linearly extrapolate that value for 45 minutes for another commuter. Ugh. Monroe. Bewitching?. Cow towing to the ‘Built Ford...

    The S and X are indeed halo/flagship/top-of-line cars for Tesla. They still turn heads and make other Tesla owners smile. There isn’t a day I park in a public area that I don’t get some indication that it continues to stand out. And this in SoCal. Land of Tesla gigadensity. In addition, they...

    ?? I leave one of my key cards for the valet. Never take mine out of my wallet. What I really want is to tie the valet profile to my designated valet key card. Not hard at all. We have a ‘22 SPlaid and YPerformance. No issues. My phone opens both cars wirelessly and my keycard works on both...

    If they could do it at the panel level, the complexity would be significantly less. One of the biggest challenges with current wraps and PPF is working around the joints, moldings, handles, lights, trim, etc. on a fully assembled vehicle. You remove what you can and cut around what you can’t.

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    Almost everything. Depending on the 3rd party app you use. Even keyless driving. But it does not use NFC or BT so you do have to use the app on your watch. Tesla does not have a watch app yet. However you can use apps like Stats, Tessie, and EVwatch. See above for what you can do. Not...

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    Phone is ubiquitous for us. Just stays in the pocket or her purse. Unlocking and driving is hands free. We sold our ‘17X back in October. My memory is a bit hazy, what could you do with the FOB that you couldn’t with your phone or watch? Same. I have yet to take them out of the zip lock bag...

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    Hmmm. Will the physical card key not do the same for you? I keep one in my wallet. Granted, my wallet is usually in my car, but the iPhone works 100% and have the watch as a backup or primary if at the beach. :)

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    I don’t get it. The FOBs were cool some time back. Seem dated to me now. I have the phone and a physical key card. My FOBs were great for our ‘17 S&X that didn’t have either of those (you would have to use the app instead of it being touchless and requiring only proximity to the car). For our...

    Car & Driver: The Mach E is simply better than the Model Y

    Disagree 100%. We owned ‘17 S and X. Now own ‘22 S Plaid and YP. The Pallidium S is much better than the last generation. The Y in many ways is better built than the S and the X. No perception of it being cheap in comparison. The molding is better. The panel fit is better. Sure ride is a bit...

    Two of many things Elon said on stage at Delivery Day that I clearly remember. Pallidium S is less expensive to build than previous generation. No 4680s for S for several years to come. Also recall the following from Franz when I asked him directly. No active spoiler (so far) No matrix...

    Botched would have been a car that nobody wanted. Far from it. People are waiting & paying upwards of $20k more from initial release units.

    My gap was similar. But because the clear coat basically peeled off my trunk, a trip to the body shop was agreed to by Tesla. While there, they fixed virtually every panel and had to reshape the trunk to make it follow the curve of the quarter panel. It didn’t come out perfect as I did not...

    I set to 5mph less than posted speed limit. In my opinion, FSD drives like a speed freak. Biggest problem with it is inconsistency.

    I’m a fan of the black seats on the S. Not fond of perforated in white. My personal opinion is black on black is super sexy. I’d get a seat protector for the car seats regardless. There was a Lion brand I really liked for our kids some two decades back. We have the larger wheels on both the...

    Car & Driver: The Mach E is simply better than the Model Y

    Had to highlight the funny word that made me giggle a bit. At least in the MME’s current guise. Not a Ford hater either, we had a Fusion Hybrid and an Explorer prior to the switch to Teslas in ‘17. Also had my eye on the GT.

    Good to hear. I’ll remember that name. Actually, I think he came out for my old S. Interestingly enough it was to replace my steering wheel. As for SVc’s im bailing on Camarillo and going back to Agoura. They were and probably are still the best out in our neck of the woods.

    Model S Software/Firmware wishlist

    1. I would like to be able to link a card key to the valet profile so I can just hand over the card stored in the car and not worry about it. 2. AFAIK the messages are no longer displayed as text like they used to on the cluster screen as previously. Just audio.
