    Losing enthusiasm for Model 3

    I understand your frustration about the delay and waiting but you also said you are in no hurry to get one either. I seriously doubt the Bolt would add any excitement of what the Model 3 would provide. If you aren't in a hurry then, waiting until the fall when the cheaper Model 3 you want comes...

    Musk Says 'Major Navigation Overhaul' Coming in 2018

    The screen and locations of the two screens is the best of any Nav system I would guess (17" screen and all). It's the software that needs work and looks like Tesla is finally addressing it. There really is no reason why it shouldn't be near the top.

    I just turned down 4 week delivery on a Model 3

    Do you have wifi there? I'm in areas frequently with no mobile connection (inside a building) and with Wifi, you can still cool your car down assuming your car has a cellular (or wifi) connection as well. Ah, I see what you are saying now. Even your car doesn't get a good connection. I thought...

    I just turned down 4 week delivery on a Model 3

    It should have that though. Cabin overheat protection in the Model S and X (assume Model 3 has it) keeps the cabin temp below 105 F I believe. You also have your mobile phone to start cooling down the car before you walk to it. I've gone through 5 summers now in Texas and Nevada and walking into...

    Winter range anxiety

    Agree with what everyone has said. No issue charging to 90%. Have done it for 5 years at this point even though not really needed. Try and time charging to finish maybe an hour before you are ready to leave. Drive easy the first few weeks of winter and see how much range you arrive back with. I...

    Want to return new Tesla

    That's on that person then. If you blow a tire out, stopping on a shoulder is unavoidable. Nothing preventing you here of waiting until the next highway exit to pull off and re-engage it.

    Tesla app for mac

    Awesome. Thank you. I assume you need to enter your Tesla login info as in other efforts? Maybe describing what happens with that data is worthwhile.

    Want to return new Tesla

    How is that unsafe? You just said 'if you can't safely drive at 90mph on a highway, honestly you shouldn’t be driving". The 90mph AP2 punishment as you describe it means the driver has to take over then.

    Pretty amazing how much things have changed since this was started.

    Open Letter to Elon Musk

    The accident you referred to wasn't a fully autonomous system. The driver was responsible for what the car did in the end.

    Want to return new Tesla

    What has Tesla Service said? While these may be annoying, I don't think they warrant selling the vehicle after such a short time and losing $10,000 or so.

    Want to return new Tesla

    It is. That’s odd. I clicked on your name and ‘start conversation’ isn’t there for you.

    It looks like futurem3owner may have messaging turned off.

    Want to return new Tesla

    Go ahead and lay out the issues with your car. There are people here who have had their cars for over 5 years at this point and might be able to help with whatever issues you are having with the car. The return will be tricky but maybe the issues are solvable.

    Got New Primacy Tires on the Rear and now Car handles Weird...

    Agree. How worn are the front tires? Typically best to replace all 4 tires at the same time if possible.

    Carplay

    Thanks. This is good news. Maybe this is what they've been waiting for.

    Insulting trade-in offer on my 2016 Model X 90D

    Why are you getting rid of a 2016 X to get a new one this year? You're bound to lose a lot of money anyway selling a car after one year.

    Driveway Charging Options?

    Check out ClipperCreek. They have some J1772 stations that are rated for outdoors and that have an access controlled keypad.

    Driveway Charging Options?

    Is upgrading the gate to something remotely controlled possible?

    And here’s why I will never buy from a dealership again...

    You should show up with your new car and show the salesperson it and tell them how much you paid for it.

    Degradation of the Community...

    TMC is Tesla Motors Club, not Tesla Motors Corporation (don't think it was ever that anyway as they went from Tesla Motors to just Tesla). Sometimes it's confusing the way people use it.

    EV Hostility?

    Same here. Online especially on Facebook or the Chevy Electric page you'll see countless 'coal car' and other typical comments. Trying to have a reasoned and fact based discussion doesn't work.

    Tesla API Token Generator

    How do you use this app to create the token? On a Mac and trying to figure this out. Thanks.

    Making the 19in to 21in swap. Help please

    The 21s will just work if they are from Tesla. They haven't changed. I assume all 4 rims are the same size as well. You will spend a lot more on tires and the rims crack more easily but they look cooler. Do you have TPMS on them too on the new rims?

    Model S has No Soul!

    They mean noise basically. Anything they can tinker with and makes loud noises when you accelerate sounds 'real'. Even if their car is slower, they'll tell you now they don't care.

    Average leg during road trip

    A good rule of thumb is to set your range to percentage and leave a 20% buffer. If your trip planner in the car say you'll arrive with less than 20%, charge longer.

    Desparately - DESPARATELY need Someone to Sell Me Their Tesla

    I think getting used car older than you normally would then saving up for a Model 3 might be the way to go. Get a new car with a warranty, autopilot...etc.

    Order now or wait a few weeks?

    The only issues to really consider are the tax credit and the free Supercharging with the referral code I think. I guess you could wait until the end of the year to see if anything happens. More than likely, it will be a year or two for a major refresh on the Model S but a guess.

    How's it coming along? Thanks.

    Supercharger - Telluride, CO

    That is covering Montrose, Telluride and Salid.

    Navdy heads up display

    Awesome. I had the same question. Does it work with OVMS or replace OVMS in that you can tell the charge and start/stop a charge?

    How much can I get for my car?

    Might be worth posting some photos as well.
  35. dsm363

    How important is the AP hardware?

    You would have to wait over a year but would a Model 3 work? Would have full warranty and ability to get Autopilot for around the price you are looking at. I think it's worth it but my car doesn't have it either.

    Tesla Turns Off AEB In New Cars Produced Since July

    These titles can only be so long. otherwise it would be Tesla has stated they have disabled AEB in all new cars since late July and STATE they INTEND it to be temporary for a 6 week period but we shall see if they are telling the truth.

    Tesla Turns Off AEB In New Cars Produced Since July

    Can you provide the quote where I said that?

    Tesla Turns Off AEB In New Cars Produced Since July

    Dude. Until it's re-enabled, it's in a permanent state of not being there. People were upset about the word 'temporarily' saying that couldn't be correct. Seriously, this shouldn't be that big of an issue.

    Tesla Turns Off AEB In New Cars Produced Since July

    It's not 'weird', I already did it. It was meant to reflect the press statement that it would be about 6 weeks. Apparently that touched a nerve.

    Tesla Turns Off AEB In New Cars Produced Since July

    Well, Tesla permanently disables AEP is also a claim that you are presenting as fact. Tesla said 6 weeks according to the article "The system should be available to owners within 6 weeks, Tesla said, even though the vehicles were initially sold as having AEB as standard equipment." We don't...

    Tesla Turns Off AEB In New Cars Produced Since July

    For hardware that was delivered and then functionality taken away? Yes, things like lighted vanity mirrors and the app store and many things in the early days when production was ramping up but not something like this. But fine, if it makes people feel better I'll take out the word temporarily...
  42. dsm363

    Tesla Turns Off AEB In New Cars Produced Since July

    It hardly is a significant change. 'Tesla turns off AED in new cars' is all still there. If Tesla announces they have permanently disabled AEB then yes, we can update the title. Tesla has said it will be temporary and no reason to doubt them at this point.

    Apple Iphone 8 or X?

    Ordered the iPhone 8 as well. Figured I'd see how the X worked out for people and if they introduce TouchID back under the screen for next year.

    Tesla Turns Off AEB In New Cars Produced Since July

    I updated the title for clarity. So people who bought the car earlier in the year aren't concerned as it doesn't apply to them. We don't always get approval prior to a title change. The original title was "Tesla Turns Off AEB In New Cars" Was the change something that completely changed the...

    Blog I Like Big Batteries And I Cannot Lie

    I would think once you hit 400 miles in cold weather, you start reaching that point. That's way more than most need but want some seem to expect even if their gas car can't go that far in the cold. Of course it takes longer to charge now than gas so need a larger range to make some happy.
