    Do police respect Tesla's more?

    I am just wondering do police give Tesla drivers more breaks if they get pulled over? I used to drive an bright orange BMW M3 Lime Rock Edition and I didn't really enjoy driving it all the time because it got attention mainly for being bright orange. If I got pulled over, there was no sympathy...

    Why choose Model 3 over Model Y if you can have more trunk space?

    When I got the Model 3, the only SUV option was Model X but it was over budget and probably too big. But Model Y came out later and I thought it would have been nice to have more trunk space because I go snowboard sometimes. And also I play at the arcade and win more tickets than the average...

    2017-2020 Model 3 recalled for trunk/rear camera issue

    I finally got it fixed. Tesla mobile service came over, covered by warranty.

    Will Tesla intergrate E-scooters in cars?

    Hyundai advertised this idea of a scooter that fits and probably charges in your car. Right now I have to put the Segway in the car but the cons of doing this is I always have less trunk space. I can't charge it while driving so if I want to do a 2nd parking hack route, I may not have enough...

    2017-2020 Model 3 recalled for trunk/rear camera issue

    My rear camera doesn't work sometimes. It's very frustrating and feel it just increases the risk of not seeing something and backing into it. Thankfully it works most the time. But there are just random times it will not work and its just a black screen. I don't think anything is wrong...

    Drove over remnant of firework on highway

    You only care because it's your car. If you saw a dent on another Tesla you probably wouldn't think much about it.

    Can Tesla develop a consumer aircraft / flying car?

    I flew drones and they are super easy to fly, they like fly themselves and all you gotta do is point them in the right direction, or let them come back to you. As long as there aren't any obstacles in the sky, I can let a kid fly my drone and feel confident nothing can happen even. So if it's...

    Seat adjuster fell off (plastic piece)

    So the plastic piece on the side of the chair (passenger side) has fell off. I didn't know until I went to car wash and realized the vacuum sucked up that plastic piece. It's not urgent since it's only on the passenger side and my friends only come sometimes to ride as passenger, and they...

    Autopilot keeps slowing down in same area on I-5 (Orange County to LA).

    On my commute from Orange County to Los Angeles on Interstate 5, autopilot constantly keeps wanting to slow down from freeway speeds to 45 mph like it thinks it is on local streets. It slows down drastically, to the point that I must cancel autopilot or risk slowing down to the point of getting...

    Has $7 gas increased demand for EV?

    I will assume the 15 gallon tank will just be 1 to 1 with the Tesla Model 3 (358 miles) range. My assumption is 15 gallons is the average size most gas cars can have, and it's an easier number to work with.

    Has $7 gas increased demand for EV?

    So with the current gas prices being $7 / gallon in CA, has that motivated new sales of EV or Tesla? The only thing I notice is the cost of electricity increased. Is that due to inflation or the gas prices? Tesla superchargers increased here in CA, used to be about 24 cents off peak, now its...

    E-scooter in your trunk for Supercharging?

    Is there any option to charge larger appliances like an E-scooter in your trunk of the Tesla? Like directly into the Tesla and use its electric source? Anything that's a 110V or your standard two prong electric plug and not a USB? I keep an electric scooter in my trunk as my "last mile"...

    Tesla autopilot punished me for going too fast

    Yeah AP is nice to have. It makes doing spontaneous long day trips or LA to Vegas trips much easier. I can stay in Vegas as long as I feel like on my last day and not worry about being tired for my drive home (I live in CA). And if I leave at late night, better for autopilot less cars /...

    Is 72w worth waiting?

    Is using a 72w supercharger worth using if it's more on your route? It be obvious to use a 150w or 250w supercharger if it's on your way, but if you had to go slightly outta your way for the benefit of faster charging, how far should you travel outta the way to use a faster supercharger over a...

    Truck guy kept asking questions about Segway scooter

    Went into a low key diner restaurant in HB CA. There was some guy in his 50-60s (he said he was "retired") who kept asking so many freaking questions about my Segway scooter. But he seem to have no interest to even buy one, or any interest in getting an electric car. All he kept complaining...

    Convince parent to buy Model X over another Gas car?

    https://www.topspeed.com/cars/mercedes/2018-mercedes-amg-glc-63-edition-1-ar176849.html Pretty sure it's a 2018 Mercedes AMG GLC 63 Edition 1. The reason my dad brought up this idea was because I'm doing what Lionel Hutz does for a living to the Simpsons. And he thinks I can get something...

    Convince parent to buy Model X over another Gas car?

    My dad proposed to me this idea of letting me buy his 2018 Mercedes GLC AMG Edition 1 for $40k. It's obvious just an offer b/c I'm his kid as I believe he paid around $110k new for this car. The car looks really cool and I've gotten a lot of attention with that car b/c it looks like a car out...

    Are Tesla coming out ahead in CA $5-6 gas?

    I'm not exactly sure what plan I'm on. I can ask my mom, she was the one who set up my SCE bill, all I know is it gets deducted from my bank account each month. I guess I'll inquire if I'm on the TOU-D Prime plan for 21c from 9pm-8am.

    Are Tesla coming out ahead in CA $5-6 gas?

    I'm just wondering. Is it cheaper to do Supercharging at $0.24 during off peak times? I live in Lake Forest CA / Orange County so I assume we all use So Cal Edison. Do these rates apply to me, it's on the official site? I did the math and for a full 80 kwh charge it's an $8 difference. I...

    Are Tesla coming out ahead in CA $5-6 gas?

    Are Tesla owners coming out ahead in general now that gas is $5-6 gallon in the CA area? Is there a clear graph that says for every $100 an ICE car spends on gas, how much does a Tesla spend to go the same distance if they can get cheap kwh rate like around 24 cents? I think it's gotten so bad...

    No supercharging in Bakersfield CA?

    I just went to Bakersfield today from Orange County. My arcade friends, we left OC and went to Lancaster, then charged in Mojave, got to Bakersfield. That part of CA isn't very supercharger friendly, almost like when I went to Phoenix AZ. You really need to plan out ahead and know how much...

    Friend hates autopilot / makes us lazy

    Well, it's just a rant he has, he likes to rant about stuff and this is something he believes : automation makes people lazy / useless in the long run But he won't get mad at me for using it. Because he does ask me to drive when we hang out! Not like using me because he will make a fair deal...

    Friend hates autopilot / makes us lazy

    But on side note, will autopilot be great in a car like a Model X where it's more luxurious and bigger? So you got more room to relax and let autopilot take over?

    Friend hates autopilot / makes us lazy

    My friend hates automation and he thinks Tesla autopilot is a bad thing. Says it makes us lazy and become worse drivers because we are now relying on automation and can't fend for ourselves. He also hates auto correct and he thinks any type of automation means humans using their brains less...

    E-scooter in your trunk for Supercharging?

    Oh ya wanted to update on this. This scooter hack can really come out ahead when you wanna charge or park for free in Las Vegas strip. Most Caesars & MGM hotels started charging for parking again. And it sucks to only rely on one hotel and hope you can charge. I staying at Paris Hotel...

    E-scooter in your trunk for Supercharging?

    I thought of this solution for Supercharging and getting to any business that could be a far walk. I just keep a Segway E-scooter in my trunk and if I have to supercharge and something is a huge walks away, I just ride my E-scooter and it's almost like having your car to drive you around a huge...

    Tesla to Offer CCS charging adapter?

    How does Tesla charge money to a non Tesla vehicle? I assumed we get charged (money) by the fact our Tesla vehicles have our account & payment info.

    Timed charging at shopping centers? How you know if its a good deal?

    How do you know if you're getting a good deal at a shopping center EV charger if you're being charged for time? You only know if it's a good deal if it's $1 for a full charge, but if you get nearly nothing, it could be a bad deal. End of the day, the shopping center EV charging better be same...

    Planning the cheapest Supercharging route?

    Ya I was definitely sharing stalls with another Tesla as I grabbed the last space to charge. I always try not share a stall if possible so I can get faster charging. But when I came back, half the Tesla were all gone and there was plenty of space for new arrivals to charge.

    Planning the cheapest Supercharging route?

    Well I finished my trip from Orange County CA to San Jose & San Francisco CA. Gilroy is a good supercharger to stop by, 150w and 16 cents per Kwh before 4pm & night time. The first time charging was at night and on the way to San Jose no one was there and it seem to charge enough during the...

    Planning the cheapest Supercharging route?

    Yeah I guess I can try use it if we are stopping somewhere for a while. Or if I'm really determined, could try find an Electrify America charger within 1-2 miles from my hotel and use my E-scooter to go back to my hotel while it charges for free. If it's gonna be slow, and if it allows...

    Planning the cheapest Supercharging route?

    I thought Tesla said they didn't want to make money off supercharging. But does that mean the free supercharging time doesn't apply anymore because it said last day was Dec 26 and its past that date.

    Planning the cheapest Supercharging route?

    I'm just wondering has anyone schedules their road trips in order to get the cheapest rate on supercharging without going too much outta your way for it? I going to do a road trip from Orange County (Lake Forest CA) to San Jose CA. I checked the route, it says 2 supercharging needed for the...

    How to charge friends / family / roommates for EV home charger?

    We are advantage players for ticket redemption / arcade prizes. Games have changed since those old 80s machine, like all now giant flat screens, some with motion simulators. And arcades now offer prizes like iPads which I usually go for. And by advantage players, similar to a card counter for...

    Will electricity stay cheap forever?

    I'm just wondering why people are still driving gas cars if most of them complain about the cost of gas, even though there is an alternative. I know the main reason is EVs are harder to afford, but somehow driving a used $2000 car can afford $50 gas, to the point after 40 refuels the gas they...

    How to charge friends / family / roommates for EV home charger?

    Ya okay. As long as I know it can only be $3 a night to charge (assuming you know its on that electric outlet made for toasters). Then I think if I told my friend's parents that, I don't think they should care. And by night I wanna say 12 hours max to be safe. One dinner will likely be...

    How to charge friends / family / roommates for EV home charger?

    Just wondering for people who have a home with a Tesla wall charger or any home EV charging. Or visiting a host with an EV charger. What courtesy should be done when it comes to the cost of charging when you have a guest with an EV, or staying at someone's house. My guess its about $20 for a...

    iPhone 12 Pro Max and charging

    My wireless pad works for iPhone 13 pro max. The case was too thick and didn't support wireless charging. But still a challenge to put the Pro Max vertically its a tight / exact fit. Would have been nice if I had the charger that allowed horizontal orientation. But thankfully my iPhone 13...

    Starting to see new Rivian Trucks in OC, CA

    Starting to see new Rivian Trucks in OC, CA

    Past few weeks, I am starting to see Rivians on the road like customer bought ones. I think I saw 2 of them on one day, but it seems to be clear that Rivian is starting to become a car you can actually buy. Is there a showroom anywhere in the OC area? Kind of interested in Rivian. Mainly...

    Applying carpool stickers without damaging paint

    I finally got it done. Just went into OC tint shop and asked if they had any PPV in the trash. They had a piece in the trash. And I did try peel off the HOV sticker from the PPV at one point, it already left that void residue behind. So good thing it leaves that residue on the PPV instead...

    Charging in Phoenix AZ (Chandler AZ) for Arcade Trip

    My friend's only concern is probably the cost (his parents concern). I assume there will be an outlet in the garage or outside somewhere near the driveway. Plus my friend will benefit from it too, since I'll be the one agreeing to drive, but I need to get some charge if staying overnight, even...

    Charging in Phoenix AZ (Chandler AZ) for Arcade Trip

    My arcade friend offered to let me stay at his parents house if we go to Phoenix Arizona to try clean out the arcades. But he prefers me to drive because its cheaper for me and I got autopilot, and he usually compensates me for driving. I drive Tesla Model 3 longe range w/ aero wheel. His...

    Pixel 6 Pro barely fits the Taptes wireless charge pad

    I have iPhone 13 pro max. And the larger phone size barely fits the NOMAD wireless charger. But as long as I leave 100% at the start of the day, I have no need to charge it. The battery is very good I rarely ever go below 50% during the day, more like when I get home I still have 50% left or...
