    Ludicrous Tesla Factory Experience 7/21/17..

    My girlfriend and I (Mei Ling and Bill) sat next to you at the Ludicrous event, didn't realize you were THE Bonnie. Glad to have met you!

    Supercharger - Dublin, CA - Amador Plaza (LIVE, 16 V2 stalls, expansion in progress May 2021)

    Perhaps it's the wisest short term solution but apparently it wasn't obvious. What's obvious to me is that Tesla should hire some of the posters on this site. But sorry, Elon, you can't afford me. ;)

    Improved Trunk lighting - Is there demand?

    I just put in 12 new plug-in LEDs in my 2017 MS. I had help. Some of the positions you need to get in to requires more flexibility than I have at my age. Plus, IMO, some of the lights cannot be removed with the spudger or whatever it's called. You're likely going to have to use a small...

    FIRMWARE UPDATE! AP2 Local road driving...and holy crap

    I think what would make my driving experience better is for Elon to throw those of us who serve as guinea pigs some kind of bone. Most of us who bought AP2 had experienced AP1 and have been surprised at the "improvement". Discount on future purchases, warranty extension, free ranger service...

    FIRMWARE UPDATE! AP2 Local road driving...and holy crap

    And the winner for Best AutoPilot is: Tesla Motors AP2! And here to accept the award is Elon Musk. "I want to thank all of you for your support, I feel vindicated given all the negative comments about our latest AP version..." Wait, I'm sorry Elon, apparently some TMC forum member switched...

    FIRMWARE UPDATE! AP2 Local road driving...and holy crap

    Has Andyw2100 weighed in on this yet? He seemed to have gotten Elon's attention on the "691 hp" issue. I'd lend him my HW2-equipped car so he could flame about it, but I think he's on the opposite coast. And Jdel, wtf? Only 3 posts and you're already making the rest of us feel like we need...

    FIRMWARE UPDATE! AP2 Local road driving...and holy crap

    It could have been worse, a lot worse. You could've spent two hours listening to mis/disinformation from Tesla representatives on this subject. For example, how often do you think they would use the word "heuristics"? Almighty Elon, grant me the strength to deal with your employees.

    And I'm sure you know why I got obsidian black.

    FIRMWARE UPDATE! AP2 Local road driving...and holy crap

    I was neither smart enough nor did enough research to realize that AP2 was going to be essentially useless to me for the first x number of weeks, months or years of ownership. So, that's on me. But here's where I start whining: None of the half-dozen or so Tesla representatives I've talked to...

    Wind noise in full glass roof new Model S

    I thought I was being selfish buying this car, Sir...turns out I'm serving others by helping de-bug their future Tesla.

    Wind noise in full glass roof new Model S

    Just got a new P100D with glass roof, and the wind noise at freeway speed is annoying. My P85+ had a pano roof and I had no noticeable wind noise.
  12. Nigel Tufnel

    Took delivery today. Questions on the software update and wind noise

    In my P85+ with sunroof I didn't notice wind noise on the freeway but in my new P100D with the glass roof it's significant...annoying.

    Model S 90D vs P100D - Which to buy?

    I got the P100D because in my area I'm surrounded by Teslas, but I almost never see one like mine. I think the car is overpriced, but I feel less insecure now. A plus for you should be that your AP will work right away, whereas my "cameras are calibrating" and have been for 2 weeks.

    Model 3 Ludicrous 2.0 seconds flat?!!

    Tsla007: Yes, apparently I've just bought a rather expensive potential blackout machine. About one second of Ludicrous+ launch is all I can handle so far. Good thing there's that "I want my Mommy" button.

    Chrome delete is looking good, think I'll go for that, thanks.

    Ludicrous Plus is HERE!

    As David St. Hubbins so eloquently spoke: "Too much. Too much ****ing perspective!"
  17. Nigel Tufnel

    Ludicrous Plus is HERE!

    Am I the only one whose head is having trouble handling the ludicrous launch of the P100D? I feel like immediately letting up on the accelerator because it "makes my head swim". Anyone else have this issue? I had a 700hp Viper that never caused this problem (of course I couldn't get the...

    CA HOV White sticker

    I applied for and received the stickers, then put them in the glovebox and drove my 2013 MS without being stopped for about 3 years, figuring that I'd just get them out and show the officer if I got pulled over. I plan to do the same with the 2017 model.

    Definitive S Refresh Front Plate Bracket Removal

    If only I'd read the posts on this thread before trying to do this the vague way the delivery specialist told me. It took me two hours to get the job done. Do you think the DS's have been told by Tesla (for some legal/DMV/police reasons) not to give information on how to remove the front...

    Cost of Tesla Solar Roof Tiles

    I half expected Elon to proclaim: "Our solar roof will consist of the most beautiful tiles ever designed, will be essentially free after tax credits, and we can have your roof installed next week." He is wedded to the over-promise and under-deliver management concept. Of course, I'm planning...

    Tesla's "solar roof" Event - Hosted at Universal Studios

    I'm going to order the powerwall and plan to have the solar roof installed instead of a standard roof top array. I wonder about the "indirect-sun side" of my roof issue. I wouldn't have the raised panels installed over that side of my roof, so would the Tesla roof be expected to produce more...

    8.0 Music Player Unusable

    Although I agree we should contact Tesla, complaining here can and has made things change. Elon has people monitoring this forum and some of us have been contacted after a posted complaint because we include our VIN. Also, "complaining" here is helpful to those of us who learn about the...

    Audio Source Selection

    Using XM on it is awful. No more channel list, favorites are all funky and still cant cycle 1 channel at a time from the steering wheel. Why can't a long button press be assigned to that & and short press cycle favorites? Seems like common sense to me. Yes, the 8.0 audio "upgrade" seems to be...

    After 6 months of loving my car, version 8 makes me want to sell it

    When people disagree with me, I feel better about myself if I call them trolls. My psychiatrist says this is normal. After trying 8.0, I'm reminded of the immortal words of Mr. Horse: "No sir, I didn't like it." I can't even figure out how to use the radio station preset advance on the...

    Grill Me!

    The front end keeps it from being a beautiful piece of art IMO but I'm getting one since there's so much I expect to love about the model 3. I don't need a front-end redesign to appreciate the car. Please recognize that "please recognize" is condescending.

    Grill Me!

    Essentially every photoshopped version of the current front end (which is apparently NOT a grill) that I've seen in here is prettier than the existing one. For those insisting on a grill, you can photoshop this on if you like:

    NEMA 14-50 Plug from 80 Amp Breaker

    Speculate: what will be included in the next major revamp of the Model S?

    More wish-list than speculation: Inflatable seats (similar to the Mercedes option) that can hold you in while cornering and massage your back on long trips. Panic bar (grab handle) for obvious reasons and also to help the elderly get in and out of the car. Or maybe I can date younger women...

    California teslas and HOV lane free?

    Jeff writes: "To this day I don't see what peoples issues are with the stickers..." The Model S is a beautiful car, the stickers are ugly. That's my "issue", so I won't put them on. What's hard to see about that? Maybe that issue doesn't bother you, so you should put them on. End of problem.

    I know we're in extra innings, so I guess the game must be tied. I'm rooting for Andy to come up with another clutch hit and end it soon.

    Free nighttime electricity in Texas!

    Would it ever be feasible, or cost-effective, for a utility to buy or build its own giant powerwall to store any "excess" electricity it generates?
  47. Nigel Tufnel

    Stop the Press! Tesla announces REAL HP numbers for P85D and P90L

    When in doubt, turn to scientific evidence: I conducted an official poll, and determined conclusively that 3 out of every four owners of Tesla P85Ds believe they constitute 75% of the people who purchased them.
