    Should I buy my current leased X?

    I would prefer you lease a new one & extend your current lease until you get the new car. You can see Tesla cars are now getting updated hardware frequently, not like 2012-2018 peroid anymore. So the tradein value is actually driving down dramatically. Tesla offered my AP2.0 (upgraded to HW3.0...

    Buying a 2017 Demo Model X with 17k miles

    You need to carefully check all mis-aligned panels - because that car might be repaired internally few times. Tesla will not disclose any information unless you figure thing out. Also, the paint might have ton of swirls and hair line scratches. So probably you would need to details the car...

    No. It will not unless you keep the original account and just change your email/your name on the account to you. But as Tesla view, the title will still linked to the old owner. At the point you submit the document to prove that it is under your name. They will remove it. Or when you buy from a...

    what is the true cost of owning a Tesla MX ?

    The more you open/close your FwDs, the more chance you would end up fixing it. I have been using FWD like 8-12 times per day for 4 years - loading stuff, kids in various weather condition. So it misaligned few times, components loosen. Also the interior pieces will loosen - because Tesla is...

    what is the true cost of owning a Tesla MX ?

    Am not owned any luxury vehicle in the past, but from a Toyota user, here is my experience 4 years with Tesla (am living in SoCal, clean driving history, 20y insurance without any claims): + I have solar: so no fuel cost. + The insurance went double just because am owning a Tesla.

    Tesla production numbers doesn't match PG&E...

    The Utility meter can’t count your house internal usage. Example in the morning/solar time: your system generated 1000kWh, and your house used 500kWh for that month. So total went out to the grid during the daytime +500kWh. But during night time/solar off for that month, you used 600kWh total...

    Upgrading AP cameras

    Hi all, With the Vector-space bird’s eye view feature coming, I think it would use the B-Pillar cameras from now. We might have benefited from upgrading these cams.

    Upgrading AP cameras

    I purchased the part 1132925-00-A (triple-cam for model 3). Then cut 3 mount parts that are dedicated for model 3/Y - It fitted the model S/X mount well. The first time I plugged it in, everything worked well - this time I didn't mount the camera on to the windshield. But removed it & mounted...

    Upgrading AP cameras

    Weep. I just tried to install an AP2.5 1120520-00-B triple-camera on my model X AP2.0-MCU2-HW3.0. And it didn’t work. The whole camera system (except the rear camera) stopped working. Tried to shutdown the car, rebooted MCU, reset calibration - none of them worked. Plugged back the old camera...

    Car wash After Service

    If your car needs to go to the Detailer to fix scratches, ding, paint issues - yes it will be washed. Like rxlawdude said, they stopped doing that for normal services. I don’t know why people love to have a $5 bucks express wash service for their cars that cost thousands to correct the paint...

    AP2 MCU1 FSD Dashcam Videos

    Wrong. You do have the dashcam feature with AP2/HW3/MCU1. You just don’t have the dashcam playback, no rear camera will be recorded. No cameras&sensors upgrade are needed at this time.

    P100D X 12V battery dying in a car without any warning?

    Weeee you need an evidence of a failure 12V to get it replaced for free. Otherwise, it would cost you $500+. My 2017 X 75D had to replace the 12V twice. The first one lasted ... 1y old. The second battery popped the “12V battery must be replaced soon/Software updates will not complete until...

    Does TeslaCam work on previously HW2.0 MCU1, now upgraded to FSD?

    Yes, based on other people experience in this forum; with MCU2.0, the choppy part would go away. But the color/quality won’t be better.

    Does TeslaCam work on previously HW2.0 MCU1, now upgraded to FSD?

    Tesla dashcam does work on HW3.0, AP2.0, MCU1 car. But the quality doesn’t good. Choppy & glitchy!

    My car has uploaded 22GB over Wi-Fi in the past few days. Any idea what's up?

    If your driving style matches the NN trigger, the mothership will ask your car to upload the recorded cam. I calculated mine: its upload rate is about 12MB per mile :-) So 22GB around 1877miles.

    You know if the car identifies a Tesla as a normal car, there will be nothing happen. But if it identifies a Firetruck as a normal car, there might be a lawsuit happening.

    Tesla Announces Color-Change Wrap Service in China

    Again - cheap & high quality labors make difference. 1. No California paint chemical restrictions resulted to a better paint quality. 2. Chinese labors are far better than US labors. 3. Wrapping a car in China is much cheaper than in US.

    I got 2 different times my gps got stuck. 1. They forgot to connect the gps antenna to the module. 2. The second time, they had to put my car into service mode & exit it to make gps work again. Something went wrong on their side.

    sentry/dashcam for 2017 MX

    You need to upgrade the AP To HW3.0 to get this feature working on AP2.0 car. Otherwise, no dashcam for AP2.0. Sentry mode just notifies event, gives you a small non-video file.

    $5k MCU2 / HW3 Upgrade (MX) (Help!)

    True. When I scheduled the HW3.0 upgrade via the app, they gave me the estimation with $$$$$ on the bill. I had to fight back and told them i should get it for free. They confirmed & adjusted the bill before I turned my car in.

    Rear View Mirror Dark all the time

    like other people said, it won’t help you see the rear, but it does help you to see the back seat passengers. I have kids in the back and sometimes that damn mirror were too dark - i cant even see them. So unplugged just leave the mirror as-is. I have no issue with that - the car is fine.

    Is there any coverage for hail damage for solar panels?
