For...

    Key Battery Needs Replacing

    When i went to Batteries+Plus to buy the new ones, I had them check the voltage on my old ones - they measures around 2.9 which is bad for a 3V battery, but the new ones measures good with 3.2V on them. So definitely the batteries are good. I will keep u all posted after I take my car to the...

    Piano Black Interior reaction to 3M adhesive

    Has anybody had any experience with mounting cellphone mounts on the Piano Black interior in a MS? I recently purchased a cellphone mount that came with a 3M adhesive.

The place I am going to stay at is in a park where there is no electric outlet, so no electricity, I just have to manage the night inside the car, no other go :) I watched the Björn's Camper Mode video, pretty good...

    Rated Miles Range Decline

    My car's (Calculated Amp-hour Capacity) has been measured by service center a couple of times since my purchase and it has ranged from 228-230 which I was told is on par with a new car (my car is 4 months old). After a year, I am planning to check the CAC and see how it does.

    Calculated Amp-Hour Capacity (CAC)

    I just requested my service center to take a measure and they did. How old is your car and havd you noticed the CAC measure change since you owned it?

    Calculated Amp-Hour Capacity (CAC)

    My 4 month old MS85's CAC reading was 230 when the reading was taken a few weeks ago. Can 'atleast one year old' owners of MS tell me how much your CAC reading was the last time you had the reading taken? I just want to get an idea how much the CAC number goes down as the car gets older.

    Rated Miles Range Decline

    Hi, I live in Texas and normally charge my MS 85kWh every night to 70% for my daily usage and I consume between 20%-30% of the battery every day, so I start the day with 70% and 186 rated miles and end the day with about 40%-50% remaining on the battery.
