    2021.12.25.10 Is replacing 2021.12.25.7

    2021.12.25.10 has started rolling out. So far it’s only replacing 2021.12.25.7; which lots of people have said it’s incredibly buggy. That said there still a massive amount of people progressing to 2021.12.25.7 first from numerous other lower versions. No release notes thus far but on all...

    SuperCharger Free Miles Expiration ?

    So the Tesla faq states that the miles expire after 6 months if not used. But we've seen that sometimes, like during the pandemic Tesla extends the date at their discretion. Likewise if you get more miles added to your account the expiration date extends in the loot box. However does it extend...

    Solar & Powerwall SCE Los Angeles Recent / New Customers?

    Looking to do an install on my house in Los Angeles country. There seem to be quite a number of good solar discounts out there but Tesla does a poor job of summarizing them unlike how they do with the cars. What rebates, credits, etc are available for Solar & Powerwall done at the same time...

    SCE (or California In General) Charger Install Rebates ?

    There's supposed to be a rebate (reimbursement) available from SEC for something like $1000-1500. I can't find this info anywhere on the their website. There are links referencing it but when you follow the link it lists all kinds of other types of rebates but not for charger install. Did...

    2020.24.6.4 !

    Just got notification of 2020.24.6.4 update on my car. I’ve only had 2020.24.6.1 for what a week. What’s interesting is I don’t see .4 even listed on TeslaScope or TeslaFi yet. Since I got the second 2020 Model 3 and got FSD on this one I get constant updates. With the other one I only get...

    Tesla removed auto-dimming for side mirrors with June 2020 cars.

    I got a 2020 in late Dec and replaced the factory mirrors with the Euro wide view ones. Heat and dimming connectors were present. I just got another 2020 in late Jun and again went to replace with the Euro mirrors. When I pulled the factory mirrors off there is no dimming connector. Just the...

    Model Y Updates to Model 3. USB-C, Wireless Charging, Heat Pump ?

    So we're already seen some of the nearly manufactured Model 3's coming out of Fremont has the Model Y USB-C ports and included wireless phone charging. Unless people are fibbing that is. Obviously a change in ports and including a wireless charger is low hanging fruit and easy to implement. Is...

    Adding another car this year. If you’re an existing 3 owner and you self refer do you get 2000 added to your Tesla account? Is it 2000 per Tesla account, regardless of cars on the account? Or is it 1000 for the referring car and 1000 for the new car; even if both registered to the same Tesla...

    Question: Airbags Deployed, 12v Dead, Car Locked.

    Couldn’t find anything specific on this. I’m aware of the process to access and recharge a dead 12V to then get access to unlocking the car under NORMAL circumstances. Does this also work if the airbags have been deployed since the pyro fuse has been blown? Or does the blown pyro fuse have...

    Self Referral Possible ?

    Read the Tesla FAQ and didn't notice anything about this being excluded. Did a few quick forum searches and didn't see any clear answers. If you're buying a second Model 3 / Model Y, etc can you "self" refer and get double miles; assuming the 1000 mile program? Thanks.

    Tesla Owned Collision Centers - Only 4 Mth - 1500 Miles - Possibly Totaled

    Cross posted between Model 3 & S groups for better responses. Open case and can’t discuss at this time. I will say part of the Tesla logo was burned into by body. That’ll be an interesting scar. Question is does anyone have an experience with the Tesla OWNED collision repair shops. Ideal...

    2020.12.11.2 hitting M3

    Still stuck on 2020.12.5. Been waiting for at least 2020.12.6 at least to try some of the new stuff. Lots of incremental tweaks. Some MY. Some not. Many tweaks for stop lights and signs I’m assuming. Can’t wait to play with it.

    I know we don’t have any firm date when this is supposed to happen; and anything Musk tweets should be taken as hard and fast. But there is a major update coming. But when do we think it might actually hit? And what evidence to we have to support it? Being 6 versions behind myself with a car...
