    Phone Connection Issues

    Yes I have these same issues in my 2015 P85D. Started happening about 3 months ago after an update. Infuriating, especially when the excellent phone integration and silent ride made this one of my favourite features of the car. Now it’s a disaster. I have restarted the mcu, unpaired and repaired...

    Homelink is here in Australia?

    I have it on my screen. Tried to teach it my remotes without success. Seems to hang before the teaching step. Too good to be true?

    Firmware 7.1

    does the update carry a fix for the short circuit that caused the supercharger fire in Norway? Tesla will update the Model S software for safer charging following a Supercharger fire

    Spotted in Australia and New Zealand

    I know the feeling, I've had mine since last August and still no spot. I've done 15000 k's mostly around Melbourne's southeast suburbs. Must be going too fast!

    Spotify issue - has anyone seen this one?

    Just a guess, but in settings > apps > music is there a place where you can edit favourites? I'm too lazy to go to the garage now and look ;-)

    Not me. Been using Spotify a lot, fwd and back buttons work just fine, as long as there are tracks to move forward and back to (like an album or playlist).

    7.1 in Australia

    I have a P85D and used Launch Mode a few times yesterday. The pre-loading of torque is very noticeable, and the pedal sequence is easy to remember once you've done it once or twice. Didn't feel it was especially quicker than normal though - its so fast anyway that it is hard to tell the...

    Has anyone with a D tested to see if launch control is in this update?

    Spotify for Australia

    I think it was three weeks after the autopilot announcement that we received the update. So mid January seems like par this time. As always, once it arrives we'll all forget about the wait.

    To D or not to D

    IMHO vehicle mass and tyre spec are the most significant factors in 'handling'. After that there are many many small things that play a part. AWD gives a distinct advantage under power, and as ray correctly states we are mostly on the throttle when driving our MS's, whatever their flavour. I...

    7.1 in Australia

    I will wait until I see the facts about the restrictions before deciding. We'll probably be a couple of weeks after the u.s. at least so by then there'll be plenty of info.

    Seat Belt Recall in Australia

    Stopped at the Richmond supercharger today on our way home. One of the service techs was on duty and came over to ask if he could do the inspection right then and there. I said yes, so he looked in the car for about two minutes and voila: recall complete! What brilliant service from Tesla Aus...

    7.0 in Australia

    ....autopilot completed 45kms in moderate traffic on the M1 and M3 flawlessly. Asked me to hold the wheel twice, only for a couple of seconds (making sure I was still there??). I took over only twice: when a semi ran outside his lane and encroached on us too much for my liking, and at the off...

    7.0 in Australia

    is it just me or do others with a p85d agree that it seems to make less noise, particularly under acceleration, after this update. Seemed that way to me today and I wonder if there has been a tweak to the power delivery logic particularly for the front motor? Or am I imagining things?

    7.0 in Australia

    My daily commute is 30 minutes on the M1 and M3 in Melbourne, very consistent and visible lane markings throughout. I am hopeful that auto steer will work well on this route. Will give it a whirl on Monday and report back.

    7.0 in Australia

    Install went ok and have been for a drive. Highlights are auto steer (obviously) and an apparent improvement in the resolution of the parking sensor display, which is very helpful. Lowlights are miserable Rdio and the clock app which is just so bizarrely out of place that it is amazing how it...

    7.0 in Australia

    Word from my DS is that the rollout takes place in random batches over a few weeks. I've reset my expectations accordingly, so any time before Christmas is probably par.

    This is what greeted me a couple of days ago. Absolutely delighted so far with everything about the car (aside from Rdio Mhh which I agree is poor!). The strangest thing is the silence. It surprised me that i must have used the engine note in my ICE cars as a cue to manage speed, ie i had an...

    Production complete for me today, now in transit from the factory. That's about 5 working days to build the car. Hope everyone else doesn't have to wait too much longer. Time to get excited.

    Top 5 reasons for buying a Model S

    My top 5 reasons for buying a P85D 1. Its the fastest 4-door car on the road - competitors like M5, E63AMG, Panamera are slower and more expensive. 2. Its the safest car on the road (at any price point IMHO), especially in a collision. 3. Practicality. It can carry all the kids and luggage etc...

    Email from Tesla earlier today: Good Afternoon, I wanted to email you personally to explain the slight shift you may have noticed in your Delivery Estimate. The Right Hand Drive Model S 70D, 85D and P85D have recently entered production, however the ramp up to full output is taking a little...

    What is the minimum time between order and delivery for a left-hand-drive customer? 4 weeks or so? That would mean none of us will see our VINs until approx. week 1 June as they'll be putting all LHD orders ahead of ours in order to make the quarter. Once they pass the minimum production lead...

    Changed from July to September today. If I did this to my customers, I wouldn't have any customers. Elon talks big about changing the world etcetera etcetera. How about just hitting a self-defined target date??!

    Ztrekus, I guess like all other vehicles it is driving style that is the largest single determinant of range. Don't worry about a few extra Km's here and there, you'll be in the fastest and most desirable 4 door car ever made. You've bought an iconic vehicle that will be talked and written about...

    Higgy, I do think we all accept that things can change in the development/manufacturing cycle, thus affecting dates. I also think that Tesla could manage communications better, particularly for customers with confirmed orders. They are so advanced in so many areas but a little behind in that...

    My original order was a P85, confirmed 7/8/14. Changed to a P85D when they 'grandfathered out' the P85. Confirmed 13/11/14. Though I'm no expert in the area, it seems that publicly listed companies in the U.S. are constantly 'managing' their quarterly forecasts to satisfy wall street...
