    Faulty door handles

    I’ve had this happen twice before. Now my driver side door is faulty. I ordered the stainless steel paddle gears to fix the issue. What do you think of my temporary fix so I can open me driver side door? He he

    Wireless phone charger for my model S

    Just wanted to share with the group. I couldn't find a wireless phone charger for my model S that I liked so I decided to just design my own. It slides onto the lid at lifts up in the middle console. I designed it so that, with no phone being charged, I can still close the lid. I'm not...

    How much have you driven?

    Hi guys. Been a while since I visited this forum. Been busy with life. I just suddenly had a thought. I was wondering how much driving owners of Tesla do. For me I've driven over 82,000 kms in a little over 2 years.

    Did you guys see the new Roadster 2.0?

    0-60mph in 1.9 secs! (faster than the Superman coaster ride in Movieworld) Over 1000 kms per charge! (Brisbane to Sydney without having to supercharge with some juice to spare) Over 400 kph top speed! (no way the cops can catch you) I want one! I'm going to have to sell a kidney (I have a...

    Coffs Harbour supercharger status

    Reporting that the Big Banana supercharger was working when I went there. Super annoyed with the loooong uphill climb to get back to the car! Any news about where and when the permanent supercharge will be built?

    Coffs Harbour supercharger status

    I’m going on a long trip in a few days so I decided to just check the superchargers along the way. Does anyone know if the big banana supercharger is online? When I checked yesterday i think it was down. Today it seems to be online but I’m worried as I’l need to charge there.

    Tesla adventure in Outback Queensland and North-QLD

    Great work! We appreciate the pioneering work you are doing! Cheers! Now to find time to actually drive to a place nice instead of just driving around the Gold Coast. :P

    The AGL all you can charge $1 a day deal and the Wall connector

    I'm not. How do I join up?

    Hi First post

    Welcome! I too have a Volt, driven it around 80k in a little less than 4 years. Sadly it now has to go. We have no need for 3 cars. Would you know what the resale value of a 2013 Volt might be?

    The AGL all you can charge $1 a day deal and the Wall connector

    I'm getting the AGL $1 a day plan. $365 a year is a fantastic deal for me. I drove around 28k in 12 months using up over 5,000KWh (I average 179 watt-hour per km). At $0.29 per KWh I paid around $1,450 in 12 months. We're moving soon and my commute will increase by a huge margin and I would...

    Model S 70 to 75 upgrade just at $750!

    Yahoo! I'm so happy I decided not to upgrade to 75kwh last year! It is now only $750 (AUD) to upgrade! I decided I wanted to keep that buffer of 5kwh of unusable capacity to keep the battery healthy. But now I've changed my mind. :) I wonder if I can get a 75D decal to replace the 70D?

    My Tesla phone app connected to another car!

    So I'm not the only one. I did make sure I didn't unlock, start, or put the car in valet mode.

    My Tesla phone app connected to another car!

    Nope, I don't post to Facebook about things like this. I did think about sending them a letter but, because I am in Australia, it will take a while before they get the letter. Plus I really didn't want to make a mountain out of a mole hill.

    My Tesla phone app connected to another car!

    Something weird happened last Sunday, I was trying to turn on climate control remotely before hopping in my car when my app connected to a Model X in northern California! I tried my other iphone app, Remote S, and it did the exact same thing. I played around with the app by trying to turn on...

    Supercharger - Knockrow (Byron Bay) NSW

    I totally agree 110%! I really want Tesla to survive. Not only survive, but to become very successful. And no, I do not own any Tesla stocks. I do believe that if Tesla becomes very successful (meaning profitable) then the transition to electric vehicles will happen at a much faster rate and...

    Did someone else arrive after I left? :-)

    Supercharger - Knockrow (Byron Bay) NSW

    Yahoo! First supercharging for me! :-) One issue, though. The macadamia castle's rubbish bin is just behind the superchargers and I could definitely smell something rubbishy.

    Supercharger - Knockrow (Byron Bay) NSW

    I wonder if last night's software update has to do with the new superchargers being put on the map?

    Well, the parking li es have been changed. And the fence has been moved closer to the superchargers. How much longer? :-(

    Is this showing up in anyone's map yet? I looked last night and the map still didn't show a SC at the Big Banana

    Holy guacamole, Batman! Has anyone confirmed this? I found myself at the Big Banana late last month, November, and all I saw were parking areas. Lots of parking areas with nothing else.

    Close Encounter of the Wallaby Kind

    That was a close call. Happy you came out unscathed. In my case, it was not a close call. And it was definitely a kangaroo as its head was way above the bonnet. Lucky for us it was a glancing blow and hit mostly the left front bumper. The kangaroo hopped away. Damage was over 3k though. :(...

    Oh. I thought the actual chargers would be inside the actual supercharger structures. Good to know.

    Supercharger - Knockrow (Byron Bay) NSW

    Thanks for all the enlightenment! I feel like a hot dog bought in New York. :) I did think about this and I figured that when "waiting for a power outage" was described, it didn't mean waiting for an unplanned power outage and just take advantage of the situation. That, unfortunately, was...

    Supercharger - Knockrow (Byron Bay) NSW

    Really? That have to wait for a power outage before they can connect them? I wonder why? Shouldn't the chargers only draw juice when someone's actually plugged in and charging? Like a microwave plugged in and already powered but only draws a lot of juice when you are using it. There must be...

    SYD - BNE Supercharger Route

    Call me impressed! My trip to Woolgooga, with a quick stop at Macadamia Castle, was around 321 kms at 170 Wh/km. I was driving on AP for most of the trip, i would estimate at 90% if the trip. Driving at speed limit unless vehicles in front of me were slow. I've never averaged at 150 Wh/km. My...

    Supercharger - Knockrow (Byron Bay) NSW

    It does look like it's pretty much done but the parking lines are still not done. I winter if they already have pixies coursing through their cable already? I'll drop by again on Saturday on my way back just check.

    Do you believe that their promise to complete the Brisbane to Melbourne network by the end of this year will not be fulfilled?

    Supercharger - Knockrow (Byron Bay) NSW

    I think so. Six bays here. Only a few minutes off the Pacific Highway.

    Supercharger - Knockrow (Byron Bay) NSW

    Look what I just saw. :) I think they are getting ready for model Xs with trailers. I asked a staff in Macadamia Castle if they knew or were allowed to say when this was going to officially open, she said she didn't know.

    Supercharger - Knockrow (Byron Bay) NSW

    Awfully quiet here. No updates? I'll be driving south next week, I'll drop by MC and take photos.

    Great! Should be ready before the Christmas break.

    Yahoo! Just checked and now showing. :) Quick question, does anyone know how long, approximately, it will take to complete a supercharger station?

    Supercharger - Knockrow (Byron Bay) NSW

    Someone should report this to supercharge.info, its still showing The Farm with no Macadamia Castle.

    How did your V8.0 update go?

    Something weird happened to me with V8. I got the update last Saturday and got the charge port replacement error as well. Car still ran well so I didn't bother with it, figured it was a software error. Then I got another update that evening for minor fixes. Lo and behold the charge door error...

    Question for the battery experts

    Wow indeed! I bet that they don't let the car stay at 100% SOC for extended periods. Most likely the time it so that the car is 100% charged just before travelling. I wish the Model S had an option to charge to full with the expectation of leaving at a certain time so it will only reach the...
