    Weight shift and handling? M3LR

    I have Summer(Michelin Pilot Sport 4) and Winter tires (Michelin XIce) in northern Michigan. In Detroit you should do well with Michelin Pilot Sport All Season 4. I have those on my Model Y (Michelin PS4 all season). The Summer tires are fun to drive, but in winter I want to be able to drive...

    CCS with bundle of wires won't go over 50kW even on 250kw SC [resolved with longer battery pre conditioning]

    I went to Electrify America 150 kw charger. I got 88 kw with the Tesla CCS adapter on my Model Y AWD. My SOC was around 30% and I had been driving for three hours on the expressway so the battery was warmed.

    Holiday update? what can we expect?

    Holiday update? what can we expect?

    A christmas list: 1) Amazon Music and Apple Music integration. 2) Unification of FSDbeta with NOA( Navigate on Autopilot) - it’s tricky to cross through the software boundaries while driving… 3) More user moveable controls on the LCD screen 4) Control over the follow distance - I’d like to...

    Cruise control unavailable [Update: Turning off Sentry Mode fixed the problem]

    Perhaps it’s the cameras. Try: Go to Controls > Service > Camera Calibration > Clear Calibration . After that, you’ll have to go 25–30 miles to calibrate the cameras. then the reboot, foot on brakes, two thumbs pushing in the steering wheels buttons.

    M3P loosing range after one month

    Owning a Tesla is a learning experience. Some of the learning is getting past our concerns, range anxiety, battery loss, tire wear, electric motor efficiency, etc. There are thousands of pages on each of the worries on the Forum. A huge percentage goes away as the owners learn how the Tesla...

    FSD firmware versions

    @shamelin73 You seem to have Autopilot with generally released FSD features. This is very good on highways, especially expressways. the FSDBeta is much more and since you bought FSD, you will get it when it is generally released ( early 2023 perhaps ?) To participate in the beta, you have...

    Speed Limit Signs not detected

    Ah, no. The article says “Now this new update gives us some answers.” The problem is Tesla assigns a speed limit to all roads. My car even thinks that my driveway is 25 mph. Not all roads have speed limit signs or the speed limit signs are spaced very far apart. How every foot of all roads...

    New MY Performance w/FSD

    Owning a Tesla benefits from a learning curve. Everyone picks up different methods depending on their experience and desires. Reading the manual will give you a broad overview and may answer some of your specific interests. Reading the forums can be abit confusing. People have different...

    Michelin Pilot Sport 4S

    Get full set of winter wheels and tires. I take off the Michelin Pilot 4S when the temp gets to 40 degrees Fahrenheit. I put on new wheels with Michelin XIce winter tires. This works well in the snow of northern Michigan. Nokian and Michelin winter tires are both good choices. The Pilot Sport...

    Moved after ordering.

    No. It does not. as long as you are still picking it up where you were scheduled, then there is no problem. You need car insurance, a current drivers license and full payment. enjoy the car. complete state registration may take a few weeks to get the paperwork from Tesla.

    Friend opening car with no cellphone or wifi covarage

    i suggest you always travel with the key card, like a photo ID and credit card which are often needed. Does anyone have access to your keycard who could FedEx the card? It depends on how long you are gone. At 20% the Tesla will shutdown. Is a charger within 15-20% charge of your parked Tesla...

    Blizzaks and Michelin XIce are common Model 3 choices. https://www.michelinman.com/auto/browse-tires/by-family/x-ice I like the XIce here in Traverse City with ~120 inches of snow a year. Others I know have enjoyed the Blizzaks. There is more discussion on the Model Y forum if you want to...

    AC system driving me insane

    Every profile seems to have a complete set of parameter settings. If you require consistent behaviors, you have to set each profile, including Easy Entry. HVAC is designed to simply be on Auto. Just set the seasonal temperature and let it decide between AC, Heat and simple defrost. The only...

    No ETA

    @Dmjmd Firmware status is needed in your post. In all cases you need to set Navigation Route. Then in old firmware, it’s listed at the bottom of the route list. In the new firmware, it’s listed at the top.

    Karpathy leaves - what's next for AP/FSD?

    Frankly you are barking up the wrong tree. FSD, autopilot and NoA are SAFETY features. You are all still here, very, very few fatal car accidents. Especially compared to any other car brand. yes, it would be nice to sleep or read in the car. But it is much more impressive to have the car avoid...

    Tire Recommendations for 18inch Tsportline Wheels on Tesl Model Y LR

    I have the Michelin Pilot sport all season on my Y. I like them a lot. I have the summer Michelin P4S on the M3 and in the summer they are enjoyable. I’ve been watching for the Michelin P5 S as summer tire replacements. They look like a slight imp over the 4S. If you drive-in snow, the all...

    So Cal to Atlanta in a 2018 X 100D

    PlugShare helps to find destination chargers at hotel if you stay overnight somewhere on your trip. It can simplify the trip to cruise into a hotel with a Tesla or j1772 charger to park at. Then in the morning, you can leave with a 90% or 100% battery charge.

    So Cal to Atlanta in a 2018 X 100D

    What does A Better Route Planner say (app ABRP)? If you stop at hotels with destination chargers ( app Plugshare) you can charge overnight to high percentage. That shouldn’t impact your route as well. Good Luck.

    Suggestions best 3-4 season tire for range and quiet

    I have Michelin Pilot Sport All Season 4 XL my Model Y. They are quiet and I have not noticed a large range loss. I have Michelin Pilot 4S on the Model 3. Both tires are fairly quiet. this site has good reviews of tires.

    Model Y Performance

    @Bmarques Everyone drives their Tesla way faster than they think. It turns fast, it starts fast, it just accelerates fast, pretty much at every speed. Then some complain that the tires wear out faster than they thought. Others just buy performance tires and enjoy the drive. With a heavy EV...

    Should I talk my wife out of an X and into a Y?

    I testdrove the S, X and Y in 2020. The Y had the best back seats for adults. There was more knee space and I could sit upright. The X had pretty good back seats and walking in standing up with the Falcon Wing doors was awesome. If your car seat fits in the Model Y, it’s probably the best...

    FSD or Solar

    Solar! It will help you with your Tesla nearly every day. A battery or two are great upgrades. I have a gas backup generator and I’m waiting for better integration tech between batteries and gas generators. Note you can subscribe to FSD when you want to try it for a vacation or long driving trip.

    Screen Lag - Onscreen visualisation and Backup Camera

    Hardware issues can be hidden under software. The backup camera should be an entirely separate data system than the FSD displays. You can test this somewhat by seeing if your turn signals are “laggy video” as well? If all the camera systems are laggy you might have a real hardware problem...

    Speed Limit Signs not detected

    @howardnj The GPS only supplies location. The speed limits come from the Tesla Nav software. The Nav software is populated from various sources, Google map data, TomTom map data and perhaps OpenStreetsMap.org. It is hard to know and Tesla doesn’t explain where speed limits come from. When...

    Just suspended... Software updates do not reset FSD disengagement counter - disengagements can happen in 1-2 seconds notice and other FSDB gripe/notes

    As for FSD removal, I have read of only two on TMC threads. However, in monitoring the Canadian rollout on Teslafi firmware maps, they made it to 96 owners. Then it dropped to 94 and then 92. So I suspect a couple Canadians got dropped from FSD beta. So a 4% potential strikeout rate. Not a...

    While driving: a system reboot occurred

    It can happen. In my five years it happened twice, on a two mile trip and on a 30 miles trip. I think it’s random. You likely won’t see it again for months.

    Any one with 2022.8.2 and still got fsd beta?

    Have you signed up on your Tesla for the FSD Beta? Do you have a Safety Score result after you signed up? It takes a few days to get to an acceptable safety score and you have to be an extremely cautious driver to get a 100 on the safety score. At the moment FSDBeta is at 2022.4.5.20. You are...

    1st time: Drove my neighbor's new 3 LR

    @Morris Minor if you plan to get a Tesla in 2023, you should select one on the website and pay the reservation fee certainly before June 2022. I waited a few years for my Model 3 and you may not wish to wait until 2024. Getting a new Tesla has a difficult-to-plan reservation time. it’s safer...

    FD Beta : TomTom Map, Roundabouts and the Speedlimit

    I “fixed” local two lane speed limits where it was mis-set to 15 mph, when this thread started: mid November. I did it on TomTom. The recent map update now is 35mph. Much better with FSD… I’ll checked OSM to see if I changed it there as well.. It had no speed limits for this road segment. So...

    Autopilot Stopped Working

    Unplug your USB drive. Then after you car sleeps try a drive. If you get FSD visualizations back to normal, then reconnect your USB drive and reformat it. The USB drive and the car sleeping for 4-8 hours seem be common issues in fixing visualizations.

    Tesla AP+phantom braking vs what are best non-Tesla AP alternatives?

    Car choices are personal preference. I live 150+ miles from a Tesla Service center. I’ve been there three times in five car-years. I had excellent service. I wish I could call on the phone, but I get fine replies from the Tesla App. Phantom braking for me is an occasional modest phantom...
