    Firmware 8.0 - For Classic Model S

    biggest disappointment is the ability to alphabet search through artist, albums or folders. it is impossible to search your usb drive for anything beginning with the letter S. Media is not more intuitive and went backwards in some cases.

    Any reason not to let Firestone mount my wheels?

    only comment is that tire stores may resort to impact wrench on the lugs and this will damage the Tesla lugs. make sure they do it manually.

    Has your car shut down before it hits zero?

    Absolutly, but still good information to have.

    Has your car shut down before it hits zero?

    Maybe that is a better thread to have, "How Far Beyond Zero Have You Gone?" :scared:

    Has your car shut down before it hits zero?

    I have been waiting for this thread for some time now. Never have had a shut down. Have been to -3 before, meaning I had to go three miles beyond 0 to get to the next SC, made it! Like a Seinfeld episode riding on empty baby!

    Supercharger in Orlando (Turkey Lake Turnpike Plaza)

    Exactly the same story with stall 3A and 3B this past Friday evening @Lawsteve. reported it to Tesla. I also politly informed the driver of the same stall charging issue, which he was not aware. We need to keep educating as we go.

    EV Charging etiquette

    @TTT said it earlier, use the Supercharger QR app. great you do not give up any personal information and they concerned party can scan the QR code and a message is sent to you phone to let you know that someone is in need of the spot. works great!

    Saleen Foursixteen Video with sound from modified drivetrain.

    Need to do a survey of who wants sound and who prefers silent. not sure who Saleen interviewed but appears to me that more prefer the silence. I know I do. It is typically the first question that ICE operators ask.

    Using EVTripplanner, how many buffer miles should I add between SCs?

    Good start yes, but does not give you changing conditions during the actual drive. For me, in Florida, that thunderstorm really changed the outcome. i would hate to have calculated it that close then hit a wind storm and not make the target all together??

    Using EVTripplanner, how many buffer miles should I add between SCs?

    Just completed my first long distance this past weekend. my experience is that you will need to add +60 miles to target location. My trip was Orlando to Tallahassee cruise set to plus 70 mph. I found that managing the delta between my avg projected miles on the energy screen and distance left to...

    Lake City Supercharger

    Taking road trip 8/22 from Orlando to Tallahassee. What is the possibility of Lake City being operational? How do I confirm? Otherwise will have to slow charge in Gainesville. Would be great to skip that!

    Supercharger - Macon, GA

    Petition to rollback 5.8s suspension behavior modification at high speeds

    Perfer the lower capability. Not sure how inches would have made a difference anyway. It was a trailer hitch that was ran over, I think they call that an "Accident"

    Owners delivery stories, photos and first impressions

    What were you thinking @btrflyl8e? I can't even drive the wife's car anymore. I get in and step on the brake and nothing happens. I am shifting with the windshield wipers. I ask for a song to be played and she just laughs at me. I get out and it's still running. I am ruined and loving it!

    Model S Technical / Mechanical Issues

    @jomo25 it was exactly that. The thread is discussing an issue that both myself and mlbailey experienced, where on acceleration power drop off and a warning appeared on the screen to do what I described and the warning called it a reboot. Just reporting the facts.

    Model S Technical / Mechanical Issues

    Manually power down the car from the controls menu, then step on the brake to turn it back on. Reboot the car.

    Model S Technical / Mechanical Issues

    Had the same thing happen to me and a couple of weeks later SC called and said they saw the error and ordered the part, picked up the car and replaced it in a day. They said it was the inverter that needed to be replaced. converts DC to AC. Call your SC.

    Annual Service Thoughts

    Order finalized 4/26. Purchase service plan button gives me a message "service not available in my area"? Live in Orlando and Tampa Service Center is less than 70 miles away. Guess they are still figuring it out what it means as well.
