    Tesla's response to me leaking info about the P100D?

    Um, clearly your comment in this context reveals how you treat your spouse and reflects on the state of your marriage, not mine ;)

    Two more Model S's with more hardware spotted.

    Tesla is adorable troll

    That pretty much applies to anyone

    Two more Model S's with more hardware spotted.

    I had the same thoughts as you. The button would look out of place in any car, not just sleek Tesla. Whatever the button functionality, such functionality in a car can be achieved with more adequate gadgets more suited to driving a car. That said, the prominent out of place funny look that...

    Why bother to pre-order the new Model 3 (or whatever it is called now)

    My expectation is that "Joe Average" is now buying cars out of the inventory, rather than pre ordering. I would be surprised if Tesla does not start selling model 3 out of inventory. Tesla might shift such attitude to a limited degree, by creating exceptionally strong and desirable brand and...

    Why bother to pre-order the new Model 3 (or whatever it is called now)

    Possible. What do you suggest Tesla do differently regarding their ordering process to minimize customer upset?

    Tesla's response to me leaking info about the P100D?

    He apologised. People apologise when they think they did something wrong.

    Why bother to pre-order the new Model 3 (or whatever it is called now)

    That is true. If I understand your post correctly, you just confirmed to me with your post above that you are pissed off at Tesla because their model 3 reservation process makes no sense to you. It does not make sense to me that anyone would be pissed off at Tesla to the degree that you seem...

    Why bother to pre-order the new Model 3 (or whatever it is called now)

    I asked for the reason why you seem to be pissed off at Tesla so much to be moved to start a thread like this. You reply (above) that the reason is that the Model 3 reservation process makes no sense. Your reply makes no sense to me. If I do not like a business reservation process, then I...

    Why bother to pre-order the new Model 3 (or whatever it is called now)

    You're welcome The specifics of who you are allude me. I find these specific details irrelevant. It is more relevant that it does not allude anyone here that you are someone who is pissed off at Tesla, by your own admission. It is quite transparent from the language in your posts. Perhaps...

    Why bother to pre-order the new Model 3 (or whatever it is called now)

    I doubt there are many trolls on TMC. The definition of an internet troll is "a person who sows discord on the Internet by starting arguments or upsetting people, by posting inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community with the deliberate intent of provoking readers...

    Why bother to pre-order the new Model 3 (or whatever it is called now)

    No matter what you say about your position (or the lack of it) in TSLA, actions speak much louder than words. Most people are rational and seek some rational explanation for the actions of others. Your actions here - starting controversial thread with a title that does not make sense to...

    Why bother to pre-order the new Model 3 (or whatever it is called now) Discussion in 'Model 3' started by cfttester, Yesterday at 12:42 PM. I am curious, why bother starting a thread like this and why bother working so hard to try and discourage/talk down ordering of model 3?

    Short-Term TSLA Price Movements - 2016

    Couldn't agree more. Wombat, I'd just expand your statement about escapism or the hard-wired desire to escape, that desire to escape goes beyond just the ice cars. I can understand Elon's desire to fly out of this world, even if that means going to Mars. Mars is not a destination within the...

    Short-Term TSLA Price Movements - 2016

    I thought the metaphor refers to ev demand in general Regardless of what exactly Elon had in mind when he used it, the metaphor is still well placed when speaking of demand. People are still signing up and waiting for cars sight unseen I am a bit jealous of that cool avatar

    Reputation points?

    We are not really having any technical discussion here. We are having a discussion about rep system that is capturing some social metrics, so your argument leverage with your popularity and seniority is quite well placed. I agree with you:)

    A Model S caught fire while supercharging in Norway (link in Norwegian)

    If you like sunshine, here's a bit more: It is certain that each one of us will die. Nothing to worry about, there's no evidence to suggest that dying is worse than living

    China Market situation and outlook

    The linked article makes zero sense, I do not know what to make of it, is it some kind of Chinese version of Onion or is it Google translation job.:confused:o_O

    Reputation points?

    I hope I did not come across as speaking in absolute terms, if that is the case I will clarify. My observation is that people used to award points for all sorts of reasons, inclusive of being helpful, informative and/or entertaining. There were many other reasons that would move people to...

    Ricardo Reyes Returns to Head Tesla Communications

    I am not sure how TM sees TMC, it might be difficult to have a partnership if there is no alignment. As a mere investor, I am often quite concerned and disturbed that members here post all sorts of inaccurate, unverified or unverifiable assertive statements that are at times overly dramatic...

    In the investors section, we used to have a small insert of TSLA chart on Yahoo. It was located in the right bottom corner of any open thread in that section. It was very appropriate, helpful and now I miss it. If it is not possible to restore it, it would be great to get any similar insert...

    Reputation points?

    In some threads, the arguments are sometimes won on the back of being 'popular' ie having many green bars, rather than on the merits of knowledge and facts. New members are sometimes shouted down on the back of being new members. Afaik seniority (time-based) and popularity are not valid...

    I really like how new logo looks both on the site top bar and on my page tabs and bookmarks. So cool and sleek :cool:

    Reputation points?

    Brave call, glad you made it, as the old rep system was becoming a bit unhinged. The name was inadequate, it would be more fitting to call it popularity points or similar. People gave points for all sorts of reasons. Contributors in polarized heated topics had a greater chance of giving and...

    I find red on black quite cool, but red on white is a bit aggressive for my liking. Example below: The new flag is ok in red, to grab attention, but I would much prefer to see thread titles in some calmer colours, like blue or green, on white background. Poetic justice here, D&D giveth...

    Is new rep system starting from scratch or do we get our old points back? It is incredibly silly, but I liked my useless vanity green bars, I miss them a bit I thought I was better than that, apparently not

    Thanks for that. My preference is for a pitch black background whenever possible. I suspect that would not be a majority choice, but it would be great if that were an option.

    That avatar looks a bit incongruous to me. The rhythm is of an excited heartbeat, the colours are of an insane mind, and the message is to stay calm???? I wish there was a rule that only photos of cute animals were acceptable as avatars

    "172M Immaterial" Supercharger Error

    Agree about the dent on CFO. Hopefully, he will be more detail focused and perhaps get few trusted proofreaders/number cruncher checkers in the future.

    Have 10K to invest- TSLA good long term play?

    It is difficult to answer your question without having more insight into your personal circumstances. For some people, $10k is a pocket money, for others $10k might be a substantial amount. If you wish to invest, my suggestion is to learn a bit about investing, at least enough to be able to...

    False claims - bear on Chinese forum making claims about TMC members' portfolios

    Thanks, Fallenone. I was hoping to hear that I was wrong regarding offshore investing for locals. Forum discussions in Chinese (Mandarin?) centered on Tesla will help to spread awareness of Tesla cars. It is unfortunate that some information is incorrect. It is even more unfortunate that false...

    False claims - bear on Chinese forum making claims about TMC members' portfolios

    It is quite interesting that TSLA investment is being discussed on a Chinese forum. I wonder if investment in TSLA is accessible to local Chinese. I'm inclined to think that only expatriates can access foreign markets, apart from large fund managers. Any education on the topic is welcome.

    False claims - bear on Chinese forum making claims about TMC members' portfolios

    My understanding is that, apart from gains made on trading, there needs to be some evidence of communications related to material information disclosure, like phone records, texts or similar. It should be easy to disprove if false. It is quite difficult to prove if true. Ohhman, thanks for...

    I would appreciate if someone tipped me off about untrue claims about me in China, so that does not make you a snitch, it makes you a concerned friendly TMCer Kudos to you, and some reps to top it off I doubt there are many TMCers here (apart from mysterious bear who posts on Chinese forums)...

    False claims - bear on Chinese forum making claims about TMC members' portfolios

    This is the most interesting thread here, subscribing SEC investigation into usual suspects is pending I am not so sure that outsiders (employed by a non Tesla employer with no business links to Tesla) are bound by insider trading regulations, hopefully some lawyers will chime in and clarify...

    Tesla's response to me leaking info about the P100D?

    I have a lot of respect for Elon, but Elon's views are in no way influencing/determining most posters and/or customers views on issues discussed here. Most people might be curious about Elon's views but I doubt that his views are likely to sway many people. He may be setting the tone at Tesla...

    Tesla's response to me leaking info about the P100D?

    No one is disputing his ownership of the car, it is still his car, fully functional. I also agree that it might be beneficial if upgrades are done by owner's selection, not pushed by the manufacturer. That said, for particular patches and upgrades the manufacturer may have a choice to refuse...

    Tesla's response to me leaking info about the P100D?

    That is the first thought I had when I saw this story. It makes sense. I find Elon's response interesting as well. I would be surprised if the downgrade attempt was done without his knowledge. His tweet (the exact wording of it) would be consistent with him being informed on the issue and...

    Tesla's response to me leaking info about the P100D?

    It is certainly your choice how you handle the information that you obtained by hacking into the car's system. It is not your choice nor your place to tell Tesla how to respond to what you did and how to defend their information from your actions and choices you made so obvious to everyone.

    How Tesla Managed to Alienate Their Most Loyal Customers

    Agree with you on needing to hedge. Hedging might become unavoidable with increasing export volumes. There is a cost associated with hedging and it might have to be built into the price.
