    Supercharger - Austin, TX

    Do you think this one will hit 200 days of construction? My guess is ‘yes’. :)

    Just put a Pioneer Apple CarPlay Receiver in Roadster

    Lightning cable for full carplay, but it does support bluetooth for regular pioneer apps.

    Just put a Pioneer Apple CarPlay Receiver in Roadster

    Originally (even before the Kenwood) I had a head unit with this issue. At the time, I cut the stalk and sanded it down to shorten it. It worked just fine, but of course I needed to modify the car to make it happen. That stalk piece is like $30 or so to replace btw.

    Just put a Pioneer Apple CarPlay Receiver in Roadster

    I just had a Pioneer SPH-DA120 installed in my Roadster Sport, replacing an old Kenwood head unit. It really transformed the experience in my car - it feels much more like the Model S center pad, but in a Roadster form factor. People can hear me on calls much better with the mic from the Pioneer...

    New Roadster Goodies for 2014

    I am so excited by this announcement (the 400 mile pack), both for the additional range and the support of the roadster. Hopefully we get more information on it soon.

    Texas Supercharger Locations (location speculation, discussion)

    Tried the Waco SC yesterday around 11:00 am - in less than an hour we were back up 289 mi range...awesome to have it working!

    Official: Roadster Extended Service Announced

    One month after purchasing the 3 year extended warranty, my emergency brake cable snapped...I feel good about the purchase.

    Marriott Rivercenter charger - best to avoid

    @Bonnie1194 - will do. And, yes, it was a hassle. @stephenpace - Tesla is definitely looking into this (we weren't the only ones caught there); didn't want to assume this would be a problem for other brands, but it definitely is for Tesla. The remedy that the Model S has is shutting off the...

    Marriott Rivercenter charger - best to avoid

    There is a bad public charger located on the second floor of the public Marriott Rivercenter garage. When you plug into it with a J1772 adapter, it will most likely short out the 12v battery and cause a shutdown of the main battery system. Further, because of the location, it may be difficult...

    Austin Gallery now open at the Domain

    Just stopped by this morning with our roadster and S - very cool to have one of these in Austin!

    Phone App: iPhone/Android app

    I'm sorry if this has been said already, but the iPhone app makes me really want to tie into the rear camera feed remotely...it is really great to have the additional utility and convenience that this app adds to the car.

    Texas Road Trip

    On the Austin to Corpus trip, where did you charge in Corpus? We're looking to do a similar trip from Austin to Corpus and back... Thank you!

    Roadster's Future

    Hi Bonnie - Just wondering if you had heard anything new from Tesla. Just had my annual service and all is well, but it would be great to see what Tesla offers in this extended warranty.

    Roadster's Future

    I am not interested in speed improvements, but would gladly pay for a battery with twice the range for the Roadster, and I too, am looking forward to seeing what Tesla offers for an extended warranty.

    Advice wanted. Car arrives tonight. Should i take 230 mile trip tomorrow.

    A couple things: watch your energy monitor and keep comparing the projected to the ideal. It will give you a better idea of how your driving is affecting range. @dsm is correct - seat heaters use less power than heavy HVAC usage. Draft behind trucks if possible - you won't believe how...

    Thanks @dsm363 - do you have an idea of the location?

    Tesla Service Center - Austin

    Has anyone heard any updates on when this will open? I have heard through the grapevine End of November, then end of December, but haven't seen any developments...

    Parking sensors

    By far, parking sensors are the biggest omission on the S, and my wife and I really do feel the need when pulling into parking lot spaces. I'm excited that Tesla is at least promising an implementation somewhere down the line.

    Does supercharging harm the battery?

    Now that people are finally getting to do some realworld tests of the Supercharger network (waiting for them patiently down here in Texas), are you seeing any any negative effects on battery life?

    East Coast Supercharging network

    For those using the Superchargers, have you seen any reduction in range?

    Model S on the way

    Yep - I heard from the truck driver that one was headed to New Braunfels. Ours arrived yesterday - I'm guessing yours did too? And yes, the feeling while driving the car is surreal and really fun - what an amazing feat of engineering and magic. :) g

    Good rate on insurance in Texas for Model S

    Called Geico a second time, and got a much better rate - they blew Progressive out of the galaxy. Roughly $250 for the S for six months. Definitely worth it to call the same company twice if you're not happy the first time.

    Model S Delivery Dates and Sequencing

    Good rate on insurance in Texas for Model S

    Progressive just gave me a ridiculously high quote on Model S (even though they are great with a Roadster). Geico has said they won't insure either car in Texas, even though they do in California. Anybody have any good suggestions for an insurance carrier in Texas? Thank you!

    I'd be in to it as well. By then, we might have two Teslas to bring. :)

    Clean Energy Works for Texas

    Thanks - this has been a huge frustration of mine since moving to Texas.

    12V battery trouble

    The only issue being that you have to know to look for the message when the key fails, which for me wasn't immediately obvious...mostly you're just thinking "why doesn't my key work - oh it's a problem with where I am in relation to the car."

    12V battery trouble

    Yep - I just had mine replaced as well - same key fob symptoms.

    Roadster - new options

    I'm with Jory and ViperDoc - don't need any more performance than I've got, but would love more range and supercharger capability. Looking forward to Model S in a couple months, but it isn't the same form factor as the Roadster. It would be nice to get to San Antonio and back, or to get to...

    Texas Supercharger Locations (location speculation, discussion)

    Thanks, Babylon - this is awesome. Now if Tesla would tell us when these are happening within the next two years, we'll be all set. There's still a gap to El Paso, but this will make travel to Houston, Dallas and Galveston. I also wonder if Tesla will also have Supercharger capability at...

    mfarendt - Sticker Stop on 620 near Cedar Park does a great job, and is really fast. They were able to find the lack of an emissions test for a Tesla Roadster in their computer and issue the two stickers. They didn't even charge me for the Emissions test, so I've got that $14 annually...

    San Antonio

    Thanks for the recommendation. dsm363. I just noticed a little knick in the star shield on my driver's mirror, and was researching where to fix it in the Austin area.

    Used Roadsters in Texas

    Just passed my six month anniversary of a used Roadster in Austin. Loving every minute of it. Service has been great, and like the other posters, mostly for simple things, like a tire pressure monitor, sqeaks, A/C retrofit of cowl housing, etc. Just added HID headlights and sound dampening...

    Likelihood of a CHAdeMO adapter for the Model S

    I really question evgonetwork's business model. The subscriptions are fairly steep, and are geared toward users in the metropolitan areas that they're serving. I spoke to them last week, and they are allegedly working on a plan for out of metro users who would want to pay as they go. I'm...

    Likelihood of a CHAdeMO adapter for the Model S

    evgonetwork (evgonetwork.com) has committed pretty heavily to CHAdeMO chargers in the Houston and Dallas/Fort Worth areas of Texas. I would like to second the assertion that it would be foolish of Tesla not to support this standard on Model S, and hopefully for the Roadster as well. Because of...

    What did you park next to? (Or what makes the Roadster look tiny?)

    As far as I can tell, this one didn't have a flux capacitor...:)
