    Anyway to reduce vampire drain - MCU 2 - Q2 2015 70D

    I just did the MCU2 upgrade. I was on full energy saving mode before and not always connected - range mode. I had forgot about the increased vampire drain but also wasn't sure mine would be as effected since they talk about pre Q2/2015 being the issue. My early 5/2015 - last week before LTE -...

    Rear door latch issue

    So I have had an intermittent problem on driver's rear door latch (5/2015 build) where on pulling the interior or exterior handle, the door would not open 50% of the time - and then be stuck with window down until some time passed or the cable release was used. The window would fall but the...

    Is the Model S now priced appropriately (vs the 3/Y)?

    When the 3 came out, it seems that most buyers (and forum members) thought the 3 was the better value. While they are not the same car, the 3 came with features very close to the Model S and in some ways exceeding it. The price delta was too large for the S and many flexible people purchased the...

    150 KW in the wild

    Friday night, I had a 300 mile trip after work that I started with 280 or so in our 2 month old LR. I hit the Greensboro SC and was a bit surprised to hit 146 kw. I arrived with 20-30 miles left and used Nav. It was also nice and warm - 80 degrees probably. Hit 146 kw pretty quickly. The...

    Options if don't deliver by 12/31?

    Ok so Tesla has their return guarantee. If I order today and delivery is 1/5/19, can I just invoke the guarantee? I have done a test drive but the car is for my wife and she has not. So I potentially have the 3 day guarantee. I have reached out the to someone who emailed me Saturday (OA?) and...

    Anyone refusing last software update - speed limit restriction?

    I've not been one to refuse an update before but I did hold out on 7.1 for a little while. The nag for me isn't terribly worse although the 3 strikes rule kicked in for the first time last week on a really long drive just near home. But the speed limit thing is a real downer for me. I don't use...

    Worst nag ever?

    So I'm on a perfectly straight interstate on a sunny morning with the sun to my back and the nag is like every 30 seconds. I have driven this road weekly and gone from every 5 min about 6 weeks ago to less than every 10 min for the last 6 weeks and today is horrible. Mind you I drive it the...

    Feel stupid - popped a panel breaker. Not sure why exactly though.

    Ok - I feel stupid but lesson learned and perhaps someone can avoid my mistake I have a newer house with 400A service. 2 panels that are 200A - right? Well - the heat pumps are on the main outdoor panel. The 2 subs are in the basement. They are full size panels. Well the breaker to the sub is...

    Any other U-boat commanders? (Coastal NC)

    So I pushed it. 2.5 hour drive to the beach house and 2 miles from the house, the only road was pretty deep water. I have coils. Lots of other vehicles passing but all were trucks/SUVs. So I parked to assess.... Then a 70yo in a newer civic blazes through without concern. I walked it first...

    EPA Range for 70D 240 miles - does it make sense?

    If you do the math 70/85 * 270 (range for 85D) = 222. Now we all know that the 60 was more efficient and did better than 60/85 * 265 = 187. At 208 miles it was 21 better than "predicted" and now the S70D is 18 better than predicted. None of that made any sense to me then and it still doesn't...

    Help me remember previous P+ pricing (comparison to P85D)

    I test drove the P85D last week. Now I begin the rationalization - justification thing that many before have gone through. The last Tesla I drove was a P85 which I thought felt too fast for its suspension. Felt a little scary. The P85D felt fast but not as scary - less yaw etc. So there is a...

    Value of Autopilot and improvements .... Used S85 values.

    I've been planning for awhile to get a used S85. My thought was that when the Model X delivers, a good proportion will upgrade for the size, AWD and whatever other new things are built into the X. This would finally lead to a robust used S85 market. The S 2.0 or D has changed the dynamic for me...

    How many potential buyers worry about roadtrips?

    I've had several people who decided against the Tesla because of concern about roadtrips and not wanting to stop at a SC. People love to say you can do roadtrips but they just aren't as convenient. A Tesla owning friend just took an SUV on a 200 mile one way trip with a SC on the way. There...
