    Work in progress: stalks on 2021 Model S. (and optional round-y wheel)

    That would suck. Guess I’ll figure that out soon after I get my cable. I’m fine with the turn buttons actually but it will just be fun to figure this stuff out. One thing I do miss are traditional wiper controls on the stalk. Screw the vision based auto wipers.

    Work in progress: stalks on 2021 Model S. (and optional round-y wheel)

    Was hoping for more info from Ryan but it’s been a while so I decided to drink a few beers and figure out how these things work. Was able to read the resistance values from the 3 sets of stalk functions (wipers, beams, signals) to map them out. Probably map out the right stalk later too but...

    2021 / 2022 Refresh Windshield Wiper Replacements

    How long do the Bosch Aerotwins last and perform? My favorite are the PIAA Si-Tech blades... I put them on on every car I've owned. Hope they come up with a 2021+ fitment by the time the OEM ones wear out.

    Yes the 2 outermost ones on the front edge.

    Plaid Suspension / Steering clicking issue.

    I dropped the skidplate. Cleaned it up and reinstalled and the noise went away for now. There’s two 13mm bolts that attaches the plate to the square aluminum tube above it. That tube has a nutsert and I can reproduce that clicking noise if I just snug the bolts and push the tube around. When...

    Secret EV steering wheel

    Center airbag horn would be great… I’ve looked at the airbag on mine and I think Elon is screwing with us when he said the horn can be enabled with software later. I’ll give them some more time for the steering wheel and hopefully things will work out.

    Secret EV steering wheel

    Has anyone preordered their yoke replacement wheel and received it? Preordered mine and January and I’ve emailed them twice for an update and never heard back. Late is fine but lack of communication is concerning. Are these folks legit? Wondering if I should open a PayPal dispute before the 180...

    4 open connectors behind the screen on my 3/2022 build. Perhaps some could be for screen tilt?

    S/X Palladium Motorized Screen Tilt Kit

    My 3/2022 build has these 4 open connectors behind the screen (left one is hidden and its a 3-wire purple,green,black). Does anyone know what they are for? Perhaps they are for the missing ambient strip lights or perhaps for the screen tilt controller/motors? Also, for those folks doing a...

    Model S Refresh Mud/Splash Guards

    I can’t believe there are no mud flaps available for this car. Bought these from Amazon and cut them up: Amazon.com VHB tape on top and stock clip didn’t work but I found some Honda ones laying around that worked.

    Work in progress: stalks on 2021 Model S. (and optional round-y wheel)

    I thought his initial attempt was the left stalk over CANBUS? I'd be happy just to get a working left stalk. The screen based PRND isn't too bad to deal with.

    One thing that surprised me coming from a 2017... the floor mats. They're pretty good compared to the paper thin 2017 ones. Wished it was mentioned in a review somewhere because I preordering Lloyd luxe mats before getting the car.

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    Finally took delivery on Sunday. Most things seem fine outside of a nick below the screen but there is one thing that I was unsure about … is it normal for the refresh to have that rear bumper stick out a little like that? My 2017 is flush but Another S on the lot looked the the same. A quick...

    They asked if I wanted to take delivery earlier yesterday at 4pm but ended up sending another message saying it’s not quite ready for it’s final inspection yet. Hope it’s not something bad.

    With the refreshed rear, I wonder how the TESLA emblem across the hatch would look like. Just like the Roadster or Franz's model 3.

    The covered S was in the pics that caster (jimmy lin) posted earlier on fb. I think they gave him an early reveal and he got busted for posting early.

    That "plain" rear end... figured out where I saw it. There was a red prototype with the active spoiler back in June. Has the same look.

    I put my order on hold so no delivery date. Have second thoughts on color though. Currently have blue on white on my 2017. Ordered msm but thinking of white on white instead.

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    After over 4 years with my "FSD" 2017, I've realized that I'm happy if the car can lane hold, do blinker initiated lane changes, and handle stop & go traffic on the freeway. City stuff I'd rather handle myself. FSD won't be able to figure out that the dbag in the BMW on your rear right corner...

    510-249-3100. This number is legit. I was busy yesterday and planned on calling this morning but guess what… somebody at Tesla decided to schedule a home delivery for this Monday this morning night without even contacting me. They never replied to my text messages either. I guess they just want...

    Recent MYP Delivery Estimates

    Yeah we probably won't have any idea until sometime in Dec for that tax credit. I won't be around around those dates to take delivery anyways. In the meanwhile, time to sell some cars :-).

    Recent MYP Delivery Estimates

    Ordered 10/30. Current EDD 12/26-12/31. Should I still ask for a hold if I want to take delivery after Jan 1st?

    Tesla App no longer showing charging notifications after MX 2020.32.2

    My notifications has been broken too and I opened up a service case after seeing this thread. Someone contacted me on Monday but wasn't able to fix it. Today, he was able to figure out that the service case wasn't properly closed and notifications worked again after he closed it.

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    I wonder if the AM/FM/XM radio would just work without any software changes if we managed to swap in the digital unit ourselves after the upgrade. I'm would to pay Tesla to get that done if they offered an option but I would also be willing to spend my weekend swapping that out myself.

    Anyone running forged 19" wheels?

    I switched over to staggered 20s on the 100D right after purchasing and my average consumption has always been in the 340+ range. Finally swapped back to the 19" slipstreams a few days and so far my consumption has been closer to 300Wh and its winter. I haven't taken too many crazy corners since...

    Adding a Powerwall to existing solar in CA

    I want to get a Powerwall for the purpose of being able to keep the solar panels online while the grid is down. Mainly to be able to charge the car if there's a multi day outage. I'm currently on NEM 2.0 on EV-A with PG&E. Can I still retain my net metering and EV-A plan if I added a Powerwall?

    Sensor above AP2 front cameras

    What is this sensor used for? Asking because my headlights are always on now but I read that AP2 uses the camera for auto headlights so I'm wondering that that sensor is used for.

    Front door panel straps

    Is it possible to adjust how deep the the door handles are when they're retracted? Mine are a bit sunken in below the door panel when retracted.

    Occurs a few days apart but sometimes less than 24 hours even. Sometimes I reboot when I park and it still gets stuck when I get back to the car.
