    Supercharger - West Palm Beach, FL - Palm Beach Outlets

    Certainly not official as its not on the map yet, but its powered up and I used it.

    Supercharger - West Palm Beach, FL - Palm Beach Outlets

    Its up and running, cones are stacked behind equipment. I charged really fast. There is no meter in the can however, that I have never seen ever and I assume the service guy in the model Y (last night above post) may have taken it upon himself to open the can and cross the contacts or maybe FPL...

    Supercharger - West Palm Beach, FL - Palm Beach Outlets

    Yesterday, I went to navigate to West Palm Supercharger at Wawa on Garden Rd. Temporarily closed? So I figured there must be action at the Outlets New Supercharger. I drove by and sure enough a Service person in a Model Y was parked there not doing anything at the moment, but it was about to...

    Supercharger - West Palm Beach, FL (SC, closed)

    This Supercharger location and the Service center are permanently closed. Service moved south to 5544 Okeechobee Blvd. This location is now owned by Lucid Motors. They are currently at the very beginning of build out phase I guess. I took these pics today The chargers are gone now forever, been...

    Supercharger - Titusville, FL

    Really fast, it must have been moving along undiscovered for a long time.

    Rattle noise coming from front Air Suspension (2017-18)

    All of this has been going on for 4-5 years at least. I only get it in my car at work. Just those few feet before the first stop sign leaving work. Not anywhere else ever. Then its gone. Been that way for 5 years. Everything including what service says has been the stated position, "we are...

    12V battery replacement cost at Orlando Service Center?

    I got message eve of a launch in Titusville-I was with a large group of Tesla owners, "Reduced acceleration, car may not restart" etc, called roadside-she said its ok you can drive it, not knowing what was happening, next morning it started, I drove back to Palm Beach, saved Tesla from towing...

    By the way the Dyer moving process began last Monday, with the drink bar against the wall and a few other things.

    Model S Tires

    Total agreement, these are heavy cars and yes there are other heavy cars, these days to approach 38,-45,000 miles is a dream of cream puffing it around. I use two sets here in Florida. Arachnids/Mich during the winter that eat energy during the time of year I can afford the usage, and 19s...

    Supercharger - West Palm Beach, FL - Garden Road

    Oh that, I thought you were specifically speaking Tesla future SuperChargers exclusively mandated by Tesla for Lake Worth-which in its own right is starting to lack here just a bit and broken, or permit(abandoning, slow). Yes the article mentions "Tesla Fast Charge" as well as "the six at...

    Drivers hogging the supercharger space without charging

    I have pulled into destination charging, no power to any of the units and false charge because Im not moving my car and there is no power anyway.

    Supercharger - West Palm Beach, FL - Garden Road

    Now to this subject, Where and when did you here this? Are you referring to the Service Plaza? Now I have a huge number of gray dots on maps where the last two years Tesla has stated future sites. Gray dots. Now in 2020 there seem to be more/confirming perhaps, I have not looked.

    WTB Tesla Center Caps and Lug Covers

    See inflation 10% increase goes to the bottom line. Thats why the stock is doing so well, profits are flying in now.

    New Tesla Service Center & Store in West Palm Beach!

    AS proven supercharging and service should and want to be separate. Its messy service need charging, public needs charging they sometimes run into each other. Its the Wawa thats a mess actually, far messier then any issues they had at Dyer prior. FAR

    WTB Tesla Center Caps and Lug Covers

    Yes and the lug nuts the same as the covers. Last I check over a year ago everything was $1.00 each. They gave them to me for Arachnids I bought second hand new. Servicecenter is the best place for these.

    New Tesla Service Center & Store in West Palm Beach!

    You did not ask? I'll be there Thursday, lets see, what who, might say. Really if the building is leased, then thats one thing, if its sold then it would be hard to maintain them perhaps. Probably nobody knows what that contract says. Destination charging will not help at the new location for...

    Unfortunate fatality in Model 3

    Speak of the devil. Well, that was quick, another model 3 with a supposed issue against autopilot. 75mph in a heavy rain and its the autopilot thats at fault? No its the user, thinks their car can do anything, first lesson of auto-pilot, does not work well in inclement weather, forget the...

    Why the obsession with deleting chrome?

    Yes, agreed, I think carbon fiber is dead. I'm glad its not in my car. Short-lived.
  20. Oldschool496

    Why the obsession with deleting chrome?

    Probably, its all about the tinkering with it, belongs to you now so you glue and stick what you want on it. I prefer to leave things just how they came, it was engineered that way and its best to leave it alone. As we all know black gets blotchy after a time, causing one to think its a bit...

    Do you have shudder on hard acceleration? AKA death rattle?

    My 75D when cold shutters a bit in the rear under hard accel. Later as it warms a bit, nothing, hard and fast. I would think the half shafts though are part of the "drivetrain" that is warranted for 8 years. Is it just the "drive unit" they are warranting here?

    The Y rear is ugly

    Yes, I have changed my opinion on the Y so far only in WHITE does it look great pretty much all around with the right rims. Its the quarter view from the rear and side that in red it was a non-Start with the wrong rims. Black will never happen for all the reasons most of us know.

    Unfortunate fatality in Model 3

    Well Seatbelts and AP usage are two different things, while I'm not saying AP is not great, I use it, I love it, and when its not there in another car, I'm tired already. I like to think I understand it better for sure then the moment I bought the car. I bought my car because its electric, the...

    Unfortunate fatality in Model 3

    The person driving this Model 3 was someone I knew. We were out of touch long enough I never knew he owned a Model 3. He too misunderstood the true use of AP and it cost him his life. Now his family is suing Tesla, their attorneys maintaining that AP was faulty in his car. I highly doubt it. He...

    Unfortunate fatality in Model 3

    AGREED, driving a MS myself, the first year 2016, I was sure the car would stop for anything in case I did not. Then the first fire truck incident, then I studied this issue hard. 1. AP is an assistive system your still driving this car 100% plus. Hold onto that wheel and eyes front. 2. If the...

    Unfortunate fatality in Model 3

    Lidar- "fools errand" Quoted by Elon Musk If the car sensed non moving objects and braked for them all the time, the car would never move. Remember its still autopilot(an assistive system), your still driving the car even with the latest FSD downloads, Hands on the wheel, eyes forward. No...

    Tesla's Used Inventory

    That deliver fee to your closest service center/delivery point would go bye bye for sure you don't buy the car. The whole buy without seeing is scary, I'm right there with you. I almost bought a showroom model I could see and touch only to have them say some else just bought it before me online...

    A plugged in Tesla is a happy Tesla... but what does that cost?

    Well initially its costs whatever is missing from the drive battery to the set charge point. Thats what the statement meant long ago, plug it in everyday. You only ever plug it when you use it, which in 90%+ cases is plug in at nite and unplug next morning because your going somewhere. Most...

    They were speaking fairly free about it, like soon. I thought those plans were derailed long ago around toilet-paper gate. Evidently its a go again.

    AP1 ONLY Please -- life after 2018.50.6

    2016 75D took to SC 2019.36.2??? "May not restart/Limited Accel messages on screen". two weeks ago. First time ever see any message like that. They installed 2019.40.1.1 Drove it twenty miles and gave it back to me. Today Update waiting 2019.40.2.1 onboard to Install.

    New Tesla Service Center & Store in West Palm Beach!

    Now that its confirmed Tesla moving Service to Okeechobee finally, the CURRENT location for service is under contract to sell or lease NNN to someone. SO I wonder what the fate of the superchargers there will be? If new owners/leasers come for the property, surely Tesla would have to lease the...

    Supercharger - Los Gatos (expanded Jun 2021, 20 Urban stalls)

    Sorry for the Acorn. Even worse is your in LG and your SC must be one of the worst. That's disappointing, not to be believed really, so close to mother ship and the worst treatment. I think you should put in a call or 20 to Tesla.

    Is Tesla changing warranty terms again, reducing coverage retroactively? [Website Error]

    Exactly, there is a lot of reading between the lines here, unlimited supercharging statements(the car), the manual changes all the time, battery and drivetrain warranty. If it applies to your situation then apply it, if not then don't apply it. I am in total agreement, its getting quite...

    Is Tesla changing warranty terms again, reducing coverage retroactively? [Website Error]

    They can't change it at all. Although having a copy of what was originally disclosed is important to ones case. Now, thats if its needed ever. Also, you must have noticed the entire manual changes, updates etc, changing that as well. At least the words, I think its wrong. A certain model year...

    Charge level jumped from 89 to 92 while car was parked

    Seen it here also, with the HPWC stilled plugged in and the charging finished hours previous. One other time after a short drive of 4 miles Started at say 192 traveled 4 miles, while driving it had not moved during that 4 miles it stayed at 192. Now the app is telling me one thing before I get...

    The Y rear is ugly

    I agree, the one with the Chinese tester rims is a no go for sure, the other turning the corner not so bad from far. After further review they both have tester rims on. Thanks Fred for the second one wherever you are. Both a bit ugly from the rear.

    Supercharger - Groveland, CA (7 V2 stalls)

    Believe it or not we have a place there on the old highway just out of town. You have to be on top of the mountain to get good cell service. The cemetery offers good cell service oddly.

    Stupid Question: How does one determine MCU Rev level and AP?

    I'm clear then, I should feel lucky everything works, rock steady AP, one false braking event in three years, dependable/reliable transportation and browser works well and this car will never be self drive, and not disappointed in that fact by the way. Thank You.

    Stupid Question: How does one determine MCU Rev level and AP?

    I have been an owner since 2016 of a model S and assumed my car was MCU1 and AP-1 car. My browser works great, yes no video etc, but it works well. Fully updated to latest version-2019.36.2.1ea322ad. Of course no Sentry etc for later versions of Model S. SO the question remains to those who...

    Thoughts on the Mustang Mach E

    I heard that also, 12000 chargers in how many dealerships? Tesla has 14,760 stalls across 1679 locations worldwide. Ford is gonna have to step it up a bit. Again hoping they do, but I doubt highly they have 12,000 stalls now or within 8 years from now.

    Tesla hate

    That may be, but its sent personally to all us owners in this fashion and the threats are real-not all the time but its only takes once to get you thinking. My wife thought I was crazy mentioning it- she thinks that people are way too busy for this sort of thing. Then my daughter chimed in one...

    You'll see everything, from wonderment by children to outright hatred. Be careful out there its a madhouse. Liking your EV-1 Avatar. All of this should have happened decades ago.

    Thoughts on the Mustang Mach E

    I like it for if nothing else some competition for other brands. Big questions: "Ford has also created a large network of electric vehicle charging stations across the U.S. Ford expects the charger network to have more than 12,000 charging stations". When? Where is it. EAs Charging...

    Dome lights

    There are things, that depending on your training, the industry you may work in, your previous car and where you were raised, that seems like things don't make sense. This is not one of them for me. However, there are some things on this Model S that you have to ask yourself: who thought this...

    Unplugged Performance ships seemingly used parts

    There is no way painted from the states is making it to you in one, unadulterated piece. Thats why it was not offered I assume. Sounds like a great plan, but it would never work(especially black) unless it was packed in a casket. The painting has to happen at your end.

    Unplugged Performance ships seemingly used parts

    Not actually sure of the real condition, it looks to me like it was dry fitted on another car. Its gonna get painted anyway so all that other stuff unless it is dented or dinged or scratched through and through is not a huge deal. Again always hard to tell from pics. The body shop that might...
