    Supercharger - Fall River, MA

    I’m local and my son works down the street at the car wash so any signs of activity I’ll be sure to know and update here.

    Supercharger - Dartmouth, MA

    As someone who lives in Fall River and drives by the battleship almost daily I can probably count one hand the number of times I stepped foot on that ship. 😜

    Supercharger - Dartmouth, MA

    Dartmouth is live. Does not show available in the navigation but does in the app. Successful charging sessio.

    Supercharger - Dartmouth, MA

    Dartmouth shows available in the app but have not been able to confirm with a successful charge.

    Supercharger - Fall River, MA

    Not directly related but there is also a Shell station about a block down (next set of lights) that is slated to receive 2 DC fast charging chargers (4 ports) from the MassEVIP program. More info can be found here.

    Supercharger - Dartmouth, MA

    Stopped by today while I waited for my wife’s dog at the groomers. There were 5 Eversource technicians on site with 2 of them doing some work on the side of one of the cabinets. When they left I took a look and appears they were making some work of the meter box but sadly no meter yet.

    2022.4.5

    After pretty much every update I have to go back and change my fade setting to be more in the rear. Not sure why some settings stick and some don't after an upgrade.

    2022.4.5

    I noticed that with this update you can select your music sources to be available. Check your music settings tab and see if Tidal is not disabled.

    Supercharger - Dartmouth, MA

    I went back into my photo library of when I took a picture of the Electrify America charging setup at Dartmouth Mall and it was back in October. Was in the area yesterday and I still see them powered off (the EA app still shows it as Coming Soon). I hope this is mostly on EA side and being...

    Supercharger - Dartmouth, MA

    To give an idea of where the SC is slated to go (based on the permit) to where the EA chargers are I have circled a red and green spot to indicate each. The SC plaza is connected to the mall parking. Curious to know exactly where in the plaza it’s going, hopefully closer to the mall than BJs on...

    Supercharger - Dartmouth, MA

    An Electrify America site is being built (or is already active) at the Dartmouth Mall. This is very exciting for this area. Finally getting some superchargers in this area (Seekonk FINALLY).

    Issues after body shop visit

    Tesla was not able to correlate the work that the auto body performed not the accident to the issues in the steering wheel. They consider it a coincidence. Here is the invoice. Not happy about it but glad my car is back to working order.

    Issues after body shop visit

    Want to see if anyone has any idea what this issue could be caused by. Got my Model S back from the body shop to have minor damage repaired; replace front bumper cover and repair a small dent in the front passenger corner of the hood. That was it, nothing major. Get the car back and noticed the...

    Single click/knock noise when accelerating or slowing to a stop - MYP

    Interesting. Found another thread where it was mentioned that the axel nut may be slightly loose. And quick tightening of the nut fixes the issue. Makes me wonder if they didn’t properly torque down the nut when my axels were replaced(??). Will try that but need to get torque specs first.

    Clicking noise when accelerating

    I’m hearing a clicking noise too with slight acceleration/regen. What is the torque spec for the axel nut? I recently had front shafts replaced so wondering if they were not properly torqued (??).

    Single click/knock noise when accelerating or slowing to a stop - MYP

    I am hearing a clicking noise in the same scenario; slight acceleration to about 10mph and also regen from same speed. I hear 2 clicks. SC recently (about a month ago) replaced both front shafts but since I don’t normally have my windows down I’ve only heard this recently.

    Shudder vibration service appointment

    I too felt this slight shudder early on and when the bulletin was mentioning this happening to all S/X I put in a request to have it resolved. Initially they did not experience the shudder to satisfy the bulletin repair. Fast forward a year or so and my warranty is about up and on a recent road...

    USB Music - cover art

    I have a feeling that the built in Spotify app is hitting some unique API which limits the sound quality. I haven't tried but others have said that if you use you phone to play spotify via bluetooth that it actually sounds better. I rather use a 17" screen then a phones screen to navigate the...

    USB Music - cover art

    They did improve the Bluetooth audio with the release of v10 by upping the sampling rate to 48khz. I do not use bluetooth audio so I honestly can't say for sure how much of an improvement this gives. Any high quality music I play (FLAC from SACD rips) are played via USB. v10 also gave us Spotify...

    USB Music - cover art

    I'm wondering if v11 has a lot of work done on the media player side which resulted in breaking the album art. I'm also wondering if all of these updates we have been receiving with nothing but bug fixes is probably shared code between what we have and what is in v11. If the album art is still...

    Removing Stock subwoofer

    Its an 8" woofer. The ask is if the new version of Soundqubed 8" would fit as their previous 8" model. There are some dimension differences between the 2. The only modification is with the wiring harness but thats easy to do.

    Out of Warranty Drive Unit Replacement and Cost

    Phew. That's definitely good to hear. We do have Electrified Garage up here in New England but we should could use a few more shops like yours. Hopefully more will start to pop up.

    Another front suspension control arm failure

    What year and build date is your model S?

    About time we get some directly on the Pike.

    Model S OEM Subwoofer

    Correct. All that was replaced was the actual woofer and a slight modification to the harness. I found it to be a very affordable and easy upgrade.
  30. powaking

    No more album art after 2021.4.3 :-(

    How is this handled via Netflix app then? I haven't watched anything in Netflix for a long time so can't really say for sure. If we can discretely send fart sounds to each of the speakers I don't see why this isn't possible.

    Model S OEM Subwoofer

    I don't think they offer the model I have, they have since updated it with some slight tweaks. I think someone on here was going to try it out but I haven't kept up on that. The model I have on my order slip is "[HDS2.108-D2] HDS2.1 Series Subwoofer (Dual 2 Ohm, 8 inch)". What they offer now is...

    What's your S 75 range at 90%?

    Interesting. I too am noticing about 205m range at 90%. Back when I got the car in early 2019 my 90% was 222/223m. But as I don't do a lot of long drives on a consistent basis my 90% has been degrading. Kind of makes sense as the BMS does not have a chance to accurately calculate the range.

    FSD beta for all?

    If this is made available to everyone then does that mean HW3.0 really is not required and this will work with HW2.5? Or is he saying that "everyone" meaning anyone who paid for FSD?

    Model S or Y for Boston/NY trips?

    When I got my S I found someone in Queens selling a set of Slipstreams which I intended to use for my winter tire setup. Coming from southeastern MA I only had to stop once in CT at a mall (forget the name). It really worked out well as not only did I need to charge but I also needed to use the...

    DRL Yellowing Issue - Blown LED or FW?

    Here are my headlights. The yellowed driver side was replaced in 2019 (revision D) while the passenger replaced in 2020 (revision F).

    DRL Yellowing Issue - Blown LED or FW?

    I've had both headlamps replaced on October 2019 with part number LH 1053570-00-D and RH 1053571-00-D. By April 2020 I had the RH side replaced with part number 1053571-00-F. At the time the tech mentioned that the driver side was more yellow than the passenger side (couldn't really tell at the...

    Another front suspension control arm failure

    When were the revised parts produced? I have a 7/2018 manufactured 75D and this failure has me worried a bit. Still have about 9,000 miles left on the warranty. If these were revised post my build date then I should probably just buy them for when they DO fail.
  38. powaking

    DRL Yellowing Issue - Blown LED or FW?

    I've had both replaced and already one is showing yellowing. I'm about 9,000 miles away from warranty expiring so once I get close I'll request both to be replaced AND the UV fix on the center display. Only kicking the can down the street.
  39. powaking

    What's your S 75 range at 90%?

    2018 75D. First year of ownership 90% gave me 222/224m. Now 90% gives me 215m and I rarely supercharge. I also regularly charge to 90% and don't typically let it get down below 50%. Currently sitting at 40,000miles.

    No more album art after 2021.4.3 :-(

    Regular FLAC plays fine for me too just the multichannel ones. As for how I rip them I actually do own Rush Moving Pictures in multichannel format (DVD I believe) and a Diana Krall SACD. I don't have a method to rip them (PS3 with a certain firmware is the preferred way but I think there are...

    No more album art after 2021.4.3 :-(

    Also no multichannel FLAC support either (very doubtful that will ever happen but I do check after each release).

    MagSafe Retrofit using Tesla’s Wireless Charger

    Heating in cold weather and poor insulation ?

    This is a pain point for all models. Even in my S I can feel coldness on the side of my left leg. It could certainly use some insulation. I'm not sure if sound deadening materials have any R factors but if so that could be a 2 for 1 in also helping with noise.

    My Model S door handles were upgraded to Model X handles

    Had this same issue when my driver handle was wonky. It would present then go back into the door. Press on the handle the door would pop out. Mobile ranger came and fixed it. Sure is less complicated but not ideal without an actuator to push the door open a bit more.

    Supercharger - Burlington, MA

    The pike sure could use a few superchargers like the ones in CT do. The one directly off the pike in Auburn does not offer a lot of amenities even during the day (the mall seems a bit run down and not a lot of eating options). There is a small pizza joint opened late close by but not much else.

    USB Music - cover art

    If they do allow higher bit rate for Tidal then I see no reason why they couldn't flip the switch for Spotify and the Slacker variant that is included. If they focused more on the local storage player then those who choose to play locally but still pay for connectivity will benefit Tesla with...
