    Shareholders meeting 2017 group lunch

    Updates: It is usually more like a late lunch or early dinner. Normally around 3:45 or 4:00. Not sure if meeting will be longer this year, since it is Tesla Energy instead of Tesla Motors, but we will still just walk across parking lot to restaurant whenever meeting is over. Location: Cucina...

    Shareholders meeting 2017 group lunch

    In previous years people have voted against lunch before meeting, as some people like to get in line for meeting very early to assure seating in main room. I think we will keep as it is, "late lunch/early dinner" after meeting, around 3:45-4:00. But we would love to see you Bonnie, so Brian...

    Shareholders meeting 2017 group lunch

    BTW...haven't gotten official notice on shareholders meeting yet, other than the date. I am ASSUMING Elon will host in the same place, but if not, I will be sure to have lunch walking distance, parking in Mt View is hard, so we don't want to move cars....

    Shareholders meeting 2017 group lunch

    Funny!....yes, shareholders meeting has been in the same building (computer history museum in mountain view since the first one in 2012). As for the lunch, I have been organizing for last 3 years. We leave the cars where they are and walk across the street to the restaurant. I didn't post...

    Summon on AP2.0

    We used Summon on previous Model S with AP1. It makes parking two Model S in garage easy, as you don't need room to open doors. We now have two Model S without Summon and one ends up in the driveway. We have been waiting for Summon update since Dec 2016. PLEASE TESLA BRING BACK SUMMON FOR AP2...

    Anyone heard of Totem Power solar power startup?

    Here's the link to Totem Power: Home I just read three articles about this company (all posted on their press links), from TreeHugger, Greentech Media and Cleantechnica (three sources I read periodically), but none of these articles do anything more than quote what is basically on the...

    Smelly interior on recirc or during a rain

    We had an issue with mold in our garage. I am EXTREMELY allergic to mold. After a few months, I started coughing as soon as I go into the Model S. I called our detailed, explained, and they said they would do a clean air service. They basically use a non-toxic citrus cleaner to clear your sir...

    Andrea James interview 8/8/16

    When I was working in instrumentation COGS was pretty stable, changing little in each quarter, but given that Elon says Tesla is constantly replacing parts, re-engineering, and bringing goods in-house (on the order of hundreds of parts per year), the COGS are a moving target which requires some...

    Andrea James interview 8/8/16

    Thanks DaveT and Andrea this was amazing. To those asking about spreadsheets. DaveT has been very opening to sharing his analysis in the past. I am sure a couple of you here could join forces to share info and refine an analysis (I think I hear AustinEV volunteering in my inner ear)

    Andrea James interview 8/8/16

    I truly understand everyone's frustration here, but honestly, I have gone to the annual meeting every year, and Elon takes X questions from private shareholders and 95% is a complete waste of time. They ask questions Elon has previously stated in public talks, on conference calls and Twitter...

    As most of us know, what makes this forum great is the people. With that in mind, I've decided to be the point person to organize more "TMC" 1) Organized caravan between Connect at Reno, and Bonnie's party (actually Brianman will do most of this organizing, since he will drive) 2) potential...

    Ultra White Seats

    Lots of talk here about blue jeans. I don't know about the white seats either way, but I would like to say that unless you are wearing new dark blue jeans (unwashed or washed just once) there shouldn't be any dye coming off. They newer style jeans are "prewashed" or "acid washed" depending on...

    Had you already driven a Tesla before you ordered M3?

    Oh, as for me, I don't drive because of physical limitations, but hoping the 'extra Model 3' reservation in this house will be for me, if autopilot is good enough for me to drive safely. But I DO get to caress the passenger side door of a Model S all the time. :) (weird yes, but those that...

    Had you already driven a Tesla before you ordered M3?

    This is in line with what I heard at local store. A lot of folks have been coming in wanting to test drive Model 3 (i.e. new to Tesla, weren't even aware of the wait time), and ended up buying a 70KWh Model S instead.

    Potential replacement for antibotics in factory farming

    Priority Given to MS&X Owners

    Way to scam the system! This would be bad for Tesla, bad for investors, and potentially create bad blood with a great company. If you really hate lines, stay home and open a browser on your computer, but please don't lease and cancel. Tesla doesn't need a ton of inventory cars that were used...

    How many Model3s will you order!

    I will have the help of Briannam (camping out) with his own reservation, but I will have 4. My mom, my old roommate. My godchild's aunt, and a longtime friend, so with Brianman's that makes 5, and I don't even drive. I am NOT ashamed. I'm a Tesla advocate. :)

    Is TACC/AP supposed to detect stopped cars in your lane?

    A few things to check: 1) make sure your TACC is set for the proper distance. It might not stop for the distance you like. 2) if it really gets to the point where it is too close to stop it should give you a collision mitigation warning and it should emergency break for you. 3) make sure it...

    EZPass not reading, getting hit with MAX TOLL per instance

    Guidelines for Press and Customer interactions at Supercharger construction locations

    As much as we may not like this, I think it is a clear and useful document for folks that aren't used to being in the media (high end managers, CEO's etc, who should already know what they should and shouldn't say). I like that they made "friendly and respectful" the top priority, allowed...

    How long does the test drive take?

    How did they get you to give it back? In my mind I can hear a paraphrase of Charlton Heston. You can have this car back when you pry it from my cold dead hands. :cool:
