    Supercharger - Albuquerque NM

    Yes this has become a little of a bottle neck. I passed there here several times. Always busy and honestly, other than the one restaurant, there is nothing. I second location in that city would be great.

    Vendor Rear Adjustable Camber Bushings for Model S/X Group Buy

    If you look closely, BMW, Mercedes, Porsche, Auto, they all do their alignment that way. The fact that Tesla specifically put in arms that don't allow the camber to be adjusted in the rear wheels is another indicator. Maybe we shouldn't mess with it. I drove over 300k with my Model S. The tire...

    Uninsured NH driver. Took off but dashcam and witnesses helped find him. Fortunately I don't have to deal with it, insurance takes care of it. Shopping for a replacement soon.

    Brake pad condition at 25k miles

    That makes a big difference. I have not done anything to my brakes in 6 years. When I replaced my pads the brakes looked perfect and I could push the calipers back with my hands, that's how easy and smooth they were still moving. But I was driving almost exclusively driving in dry Los Angeles.

    My poor Model S got hit and insurance declared it as a total loss. I bought the car back from the insurance and selling it as is. 2014 Model S 85 (non performance) 309k miles no AP MCU has a eMMc chip earlier this year I had Tesla replace a lot of suspension parts (total $4500) so that area...

    Brake pad condition at 25k miles

    275k miles. I should have done them a little earlier, but 250k is realistic.

    free supercharging when buying used

    CPO from Tesla doesn't come with free supercharging any more. I just looked to double check.

    They don't do that any more. They are determined to phase that out.

    free supercharging when buying used

    My car got totaled recently and I will most likely get a used Model S again to replace it. Since I drive way more than normal people, keeping free supercharging is very important to me. I got mixed info looking into this. Has anyone recently bought a used Model S with FUSC (free unlimited super...

    My trip has come to an unfortunate end. While parked, someone hit my car and damaged it to a point it's no longer driveable. The back is pretty torn up. Even worse, the impact pushed the car into the curb and smashed the front bumper in. The radiator broke and the coolant leaked out. I'm waiting...

    Totally unplanned and just happened by chance, had a fun chat with @PLUS EV at the Rutland Supercharger. He is the Supercharger machine LOL I had to scale back a little with new locations due to work. Some locations take a serious time commitment which I couldn't do this time.

    What's the charging situation in Lyndhurst, OH. It's a service center and officially off the map, but it used to be a Supercharger. Can I still charge there? Would it count considering it's not on the official map any more?

    I believe I just hit 400 today. :) I'm actually not 100% sure. I have to wait for the sheet and tableau to update. It says 399 now but I just added one more (Lansing, MI)

    Yes for my big trip I also got a few of these full body wipes. They are thicker than the normal baby wipes and work much better. Showers are actually easy to find in travel centers.

    Yeah it's not available to the public. They have very little space there and they really don't want people go to this location to charge.

    Just tried to get the one at the Chicago SC (Grand Ave). I told them I was trying to get every Supercharger in the country and I would only need 2 min. They didn't even have to move a vehicle, I could have just pulled in next to the spot and plugged in but there didn't allow it. Such dicks.

    Nothing too exciting happening on my trip. I'm making my way north. I finished Tennessee yesterday (I skipped one, might catch it later this year). I stopped at Jack Daniel's Distillery.

    My phone's browser seems to show the left 1/3 of the entire map which is fine. I don't use it that much, just to look up a name quickly and send it to the car. I do most of my planning on my laptop.

    I don't understand how you just make up how I drive to explain your theory.

    The info was based on a town hall meeting. It was said that there will be a Tesla Supercharger coming with HyVee. If HyVee isn't going there any more, the supercharger might not come. There is a Target, though and Tesla has partnered with Target on putting superchargers in. So who knows. But I...

    Scan My Tesla has these new data points available now. The passive cooling targets are more or less irrelevant. The car doesn't do anything to reach those as far as I can tell. As long as the battery is below the active cooling target, the car will just circulate the coolant through the battery...

    Sometimes I don't understand Tesla's thinking behind deciding for a supercharger location. Chattanooga is in an airport parking lot that requires paying.

    Found this a little ironic. This was at a gas station and the intent was to have Teslas go to the back side and park there. But when you first arrive, it's rather odd to see this.
