    Gen 3 Wall Connector Wifi issue

    Thanks for tips - installed a Gen 3 Wall Connector today and could not get it connected to the internet until I turned off WPA3 in my Asus Router. As an aside, it did connect to my WiFi just had no internet connectivity until I disabled WPA3. Mike

    SuperCharger - Metairie, LA

    Not sure who to alert so this can be added to supercharge.info but @Chuq @MarcoRP seem to be the last ones I've seen maintaining that site (?). And thanks for finding/posting that! Mike

    New 2021 Model S Unveiled January 27, 2021

    I think that kind of thinking still persists at Boeing - that's why SpaceX is kicking their butts in that sector too. One of the complaints I personally had when I switched back from 2 years in a Model 3 to a Model S was the "giant" steering wheel (relative to Model 3 the Model S steering wheel...

    When will my Tesla be a robotaxi and generate 3k/day?

    LOL - ask this guy https://twitter.com/elonmusk

    Model 3 caught fire in china garage [after hitting a manhole cover]

    Bottom line - after a road hazard and/or accident event that punctures the battery pack don't pull your Tesla into your garage.

    Software update 2020.48.26.x update, font size problems

    I remember being in my 20s* and having no concept of what it was like not to be able to see small print clearly. *20s - the likely age & demographic of Tesla's programmers

    New Atlanta Store: 1580 Church St.

    I took delivery in Decatur last week and as best I can tell, this Center no longer has any public facing superchargers. I remember charging here in 2015 when I was traveling through Atlanta but the superchargers are no longer available to travelers and this site should probably be removed as a...

    Model S range and interior update imminent?

    Does anyone else think that if a significant redesign / revision was imminent that there would be spy shots of the new model (possibly camouflaged) all over the internet by now? Cold & hot weather testing, high altitude testing, etc.? I'm not convinced anything major is close. I personally...

    I also took delivery today in Atlanta (Decatur, GA). No complaints - another great delivery.

    For the recently delivered

    Mine also showed up when the VIN was issued. What documents do you have under "Documents" on your order page?

    Model s turbine wheels and winter tires for sale

    FYI, the Sottozero tires are Pirelli. Good luck with your sale.

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    I hear that and honestly that was my first reaction as well. But after I reflected on it I decided that it's only supposition on my part to assume they are trying to screw me and low ball me on the trade - it's just as possible that with the Model 3 updates recently introduced resulted in a...

    I'm trading in a 2018 Model 3 Performance and it was $1800 reduction with 500 additional miles from original quote.

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    Same situation here. I just sucked it up, paid the difference and wrote it off in my mind as another donation to the Church of Elon.

    Same here - I got 424410 on a Performance Model S night before last.

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    I did. But I personally don't think that made any difference. I think it's all about logistics with Tesla - batches of cars destined for certain regions getting manufactured so as to try and optimize and maximize what they can deliver in the shortest amount of time. Just IMO. Mike

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    FYI, another data point, ordered Model S Performance on 10/16, VIN showed up overnight last night, delivery for me will be Atlanta, GA, no delivery date yet. Mike

    Tesla removes regenerative braking strength option

    This is interesting considering Tesla recommends (in the latest Model S owner's manual) setting Regenerative Braking to LOW in snowy and icy conditions.

    I want to sue Tesla..

    Hire an attorney. The attorney will advise you as to whether you have a case or not. It will likely be much better legal advice than you can get from an internet forum. LOL

    New Orleans Supercharger in 2017?

    No news on a supercharger but obviously the Service Center finally opened late last year.

    Trading in a Tesla for a Tesla?

    Assuming you don't want to go thru the hassle of selling it yourself, I suggest you take it somewhere like CarMax or AutoNation and get an actual quote/offer and see how it compares to what Tesla is offering. Take into consideration any sales tax offsets (if your state does that) and all other...

    White Seats Stain Very Easily

    I thought I read early on when the white interiors first started that 409 (brand) cleaner worked well. Also, might try something with diluted bleach in it since bleach often returns white things to white. Mike

    HW3 upgrade waiting room: All FSD Tesla’s

    On mine it lost bluetooth pairings and I also had to rejoin my WiFi connection at home since that was lost too. Mike

    HW3 upgrade waiting room: All FSD Tesla’s

    Interesting. Mine still shows "Enhanced Autopilot" along with FSD on my Model 3 on the website. But I don't really trust anything they show as being reflective of reality because mine also shows Pay per Use Supercharging when in fact I have free unlimited Supercharging and have never been...

    New Mobile Software - Range on Charge Slider

    It is on my iOS Tesla App.
  31. NOLA_Mike


    I think we're talking about the same noise. Sounds like the pedal is under tension and then suddenly released. Almost a popping sound. I guess I got used to it and just ignored it. Also, I could imagine it might be louder or not so loud from car to car. Also, mine did not do it every time -...
  32. NOLA_Mike


    I had a Tesla Mobile Tech riding with me in my previous Model S and when he heard the noise (I never mentioned it) he just said "Ok, yours does that too. I've had other folks complain about it but it is just the sound of the brake pedal moving." I've never heard it in the Model 3. Mike

    Tesla autopilot HW3

    I was wondering something similar - after AutoPilot runs over the cones does HW3 then show them strewn about the highway on the screen?

    EAP on window sticker but I didn’t pay for it, it worked initially and then didn’t

    Tesla doesn't seem to follow the rules. My monroney sticker didn't come close to matching the actual car configuration. The VIN on it was correct and matched my car's VIN but the sticker said the car was Multicoat Red (my car is Midnight Silver) and various options I ordered (and received)...

    Tesla autopilot HW3

    I would think they will need to defer some of that revenue to cover the costs of swapping out the hardware. Once they have swapped out everyone who pre-purchased FSD on HW2 and HW2.5 to HW3 and declared "feature set complete" they can claim all of the remaining deferred revenue and be in...
  36. NOLA_Mike


    If that's the case then it's time for Tesla to start updating/retrofitting our cars to HW3. As an early FSD buyer (twice) I've been in no hurry for that but as soon as I see divergence in the software branches I'm ready for my "free" update to HW3. Mike

    2019.36.1 Reports Coming In....

    I manually perform this function occasionally by shifting to Neutral at about 25 MPH and then braking fairly firmly a couple of times. Usually right after I wash it because the rotors get some surface rust if left wet. Mike

    2019.36.1 and Single pedal braking.

    I wouldn't be surprised if they eventually release an update to include "single pedal driving" on all models. If the motors aren't capable of generating braking force below a certain speed then they can implement the brakes for the last 5 or 10 MPH. At least on everything since switching to...

    Model 3 software super-thread

    Mine shows up under Controls now too (looks just like what you posted). Not sure when it appeared (I do not have Homelink activated to work with Summon). When I posted the app screenshot yesterday I did not check Controls to see if it was there but after seeing your post this morning I checked...

    Model 3 software super-thread

    Yes, it's been in the app under the Summon Menu for some time now. Maybe they are going to move it to a place where those without Summon can use it.

    Model 3 Performance Battery Degradation One Month (Story)

    As I understand it, "Rated Range" might be more accurately labeled "EPA Rated Range" in the United States. The Model 3, having been run thru the EPA's test cycle, consumed ~243 wh/mile (0.243 kWh/mile) during this test cycle. Therefore, "Rated Range" as displayed in the car, is the battery's...

    How to tell if windshield is well-sealed?

    What's the fix? Mine's separating since day 1 so I had Tesla change it out under warranty and the replacement is exactly the same as the original - black plastic triangle piece still sticks out at top and looks like crap. And yes, they changed it because I watch the Mobile Tech change the...

    Ordered new, fulfilled with inventory car

    I would consider accepting it. I would inspect it and hold it to the same standards as one straight off the factory floor. I would also not accept it as new/full price if it had more than 50 or 75 miles on it. Remember you can return it for full refund in the first few days if you're not...

    Model 3 Performance Battery Degradation One Month (Story)

    I don't think what you're experiencing is normal at all. I'd say keep pestering the service center - whether they think you're an ahole or not. Maybe try another service center. I would be just as upset as you seem to be if I were experiencing the same thing (and I've owned 4 different Teslas...

    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    You can sell anything you already own for a profit without reseting or disturbing the wash sale rule. You just can't buy back during the 30 days. If you do, then your loss gets rolled into the basis of what you bought back within the 30 days and you can't claim the loss until you sell those...

    Supercharger - Henrietta, TX

    It seems to me that most often I encounter head winds or cross winds when I'm heading west (from Denton to Childress). Probably depends on time of year/season. Also, there is approximately 1,200' elevation gain when going west and while that may not seem significant that alone probably eats up...
