    For those that think $8k is too much for Full Autonomy

    1. Try pricing a Mercedes E-class with the closest thing to Autopilot 1.0 (still not as good), it will cost nearly $12K in upgrade packages!! 2. Use the Tesla Network to have your car earn money driving people around when you don't use it 3. A couple or family could have 1 car instead of...

    Heads-Up-Display (HUD): More proof

    Poll: Why do you want a Tesla? [from 2016]

    Alot of people assume reservations were made due to high interest in EVs, but I disagree; I feel that people want a Tesla because they are the best cars in the world, the fact that they are Electric is just a bonus! At least that's how I ended up trading in my car for an S nearly 6x more...

    Tesla Haters resort to false accusations

    I've heard some lies about Tesla but nothing to this extent.. shouldn't the guy replying on Elon's twitter be sued for defamation for spreading lies accusing Elon of attempted murder of people shorting Tesla stock? And then some other girl says Elon is manipulating prices and should go to jail...

    Bolt vs Model 3 Comparison

    This article must be written by GM or someone shorting Tesla stock, completely biased: Tesla Model 3 vs. Chevrolet Bolt: Battle of the long-range EVs 1. Tech- He totally downplays Autopilot, no mention of Over-The-Air updates or supercharging and claims Bolt tech is better... really??!! 2...

    Model 3 Potential: Police Cars?

    What do you guys think about law enforcement replacing police cars (or any emergency vehicles) with Model 3s? Although they will be a bit more expensive (it seems they normally spend 20-25k), the gas/maintenance savings and quick acceleration to catch speeders and respond quickly to emergencies...

    Used vs New- Is this a good deal?

    I noticed this ad in the weekly email by Panjo today, does this guy really think adding sales tax and the federal tax credit to his "investment value" is going to not be noticed? I priced a new car out to about $93k after tax credit with the same features,vs his claimed "investment" of $108k. We...

    The list of cars with 0-60 in 2.6s or less; Why the P90DL is such a great value in c

    The latest update (Launch Mode) is what Motor Trend had access to when they tested the P90D with Ludicrous mode and recorded 2.6s 0-60. Assuming that tested time is accurate and replicable in ideal conditions, the P90DL is now tied for 6th fastest production car, & can achieve 2.6s for as little...

    Great rechargeable motion & light sensing trunk light

    Here is the best cheap easy to use light I found for the Tesla trunk, just got mine! It has a magnetic strip that has the 3M adhesive and then the light can easily stick to the magnet or pull off to charge by USB and put back on. It only turns on when dark and when you wave your hand a few feet...

    Floor mat for trunk- Why not hinged for footwell opening?

    I have an idea that may be good for one of you engineers.. How about for a trunk floor mat, in order to allow easy access to the footwell for storage you could add a hinge to the floor mat? Then assuming it is a rigid allweather mat that lays flat, take out the normal footwell cover and just put...

    New floor mats- Thoughts

    I was checking out floor mats on Amazon and saw some interesting ones that I like the design and could possibly use all year round, what do you guys think?

    Winter tires Size and Wheels Questions

    I decided to order Nokian Hakkapeliitta R2 winter tires (I assume I'd just use the retailer locator on their site), and will get an extra set of wheels so there is less risk of tire damage while mounting/unmounting. What size do you recommend if not the standard 245/45R19? I heard smaller may...

    Autopark: Will future versions reverse into normal parking spot?

    Parallel parking is nice but most of the time we are reversing into a normal parking spot, why can't the tesla work for that too? If the lines aren't visible they could at least enable it when there are 2 cars surrounded an empty spot, then you'd just drive past the spot just like you do now for...

    Does Autopilot work better with LTE than 3G?

    Since there may be some additional data downloaded by Autopilot such as their high precision maps, does anyone know if the faster speed of LTE improves Autopilot performance with regard to proper paths and/or quicker reaction time?

    Most Idiotic TV clip about Tesla

    Add a 110v outlet inside of the car?

    I remember reading how a 12v dc converter can blow the fuse or ruin the 12v battery, is there a safe way to have a 110v outlet installed that runs off the main battery so I could for example plugin my laptop? You'd think an electric car would have an option for an outlet :)

    Autopilot with Vinyl Wrap: Does it hinder performance?

    I have vinyl wrap and my Tesla is in service till next week so I haven't had a chance to try Autopilot. Can someone confirm if vinyl wrap covering the radar and sensors limits the functionality of Autopilot? I didn't seem to have much issue with TACC (tho it may have relied more on the camera...

    Do all Tesla with Autopilot have 12 sensors?

    I thought I remember reading that earlier Autopilot production included fewer sensors and later they increased it to 12, is that true or do all Tesla produced since Oct 2014 have the same hardware?

    Autopilot Idea: Utilize GPS+Map to anticipate lane curves/exits

    Alot of reviews mention how some curves or exits cause the autopilot to lose track of the road. Why don't they incorporate GPS & Maps to anticipate if you are approaching a road curve or an exit? For example if it knows you are in the 2nd lane from the right side and the map shows a 2 lane...

    Got my S85D wrapped in Avery Brilliant Blue Matte Metallic

    What do you guys think? If I was able to get the new Deep Metallic Blue a couple months ago I would probably not have wrapped but I do love how the wrap protects the car and diffuses light so that the color is more visible vs a glossy finish.
