    Model S turning off blinker after auto lane change?

    I'd assume when it's executing a turn with FSD, it doesn't use the stalk at all. There shouldn't be any reason to require a hardware input for a software function if the computer is handling all of it.

    Software Update 2018.20.5

    I just picked up my car from service with it installed. I didn't notice anything new, (beside the maps, but those were a prior release) but I was also updating from .12, so I'm not sure I'd be able to attribute it to this versus any of the other upgrades.

    Rattle noise coming from front Air Suspension (2017-18)

    This is how I'm feeling as well. I've had it since September, they've been trying to fix it for several months. Today they told me it's the steering rack and they have to engineer a new part to fix it. So I'm supposed to just wait it out?

    Rattle Problem - Tesla Says they Can't Fix

    It's not especially high pitched, no. It almost sounds like a bottle cap or something is bouncing around. They've taken the front apart and changed several components (including the steering rack twice now) and they are pretty sure it's the rack, but that replacing it won't fix it. I did see...

    Rattle Problem - Tesla Says they Can't Fix

    I've been having my car in and out of service with sound issues since January. The most recent two have been almost two weeks each. Today Tesla told me they can't fix it. The sound is coming from the steering rack, and they need to redesign the part before they can replace it and have it do...

    Slacker - Logging in Issue

    I'm quite happy to blame Tesla for forcing us into Slacker instead of other streaming services in the screen.

    Rattle noise coming from front Air Suspension (2017-18)

    I’m dealing with a rattle issue right now as well. I took the car in about 10 days ago, got a tech to be able to hear the rattle. They called me and said they found a broken air duct, and then later they said they had to change both the steering rack, and a piece of the suspension. Then on the...

    Infested With Ants

    Finally got responses on the ant problem. They had me bring it in for detailing today. Said they can't confirm my claims and that it must be a problem with where I'm parking it. No ants in my home at all, and we've looked. I expect this problem to be recurring.

    So- about that AAA rate hike for Teslas

    Progressive was by far cheaper for me. It's going vary not just by state though. Differently providers weight your zip code differently than others. My insurance is insanely high ($1190 for six months) despite having a perfect record and only insuring one car simply because of the zip code I'm...

    Getting a Wall Connector, what Amperage circuit breaker do I need?

    The variable settings on the wall connector are irrelevant if Los Angeles. You didn’t mention where you are, so it’s worth having your electrician double check the code. We installed my wall charger on a 50A circuit and the city inspector wouldn’t approve the install. Their read of the code is...

    Infested With Ants

    I took delivery of my car last week and like the OP saw an ant or two the next day and didn't think anything of it. I'm now about a week out and it's covered in ants. My other car parked next to it doesn't have the issue and never has. Here's hoping they will remedy it. Not looking forward to...

    Auto presenting handles disabled

    2017.36 1b27c6d is the version number in my app. Not sure if that's the same as the firmware version. I haven't tried turning it on. I took what they were saying about it being turned off intentionally as good enough. I'll check.

    Auto presenting handles disabled

    I just took delivery of my new 75D. I was told the autopresenting handles are currently disabled and a firmware fix next week is necesssry to turn them back on. Is this happening to other vehicles as well? Any idea what problem is being solved?

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    We simply don't know yet. The exact hardware difference between the two hasn't been disclosed or tested by users. It's why we're rabid for information on it. Also just from a practicality standpoint, if it does end up meaning retrofits, that's going to be a lot of cars needing it and probably...

    BTX8 battery-code on a 75D... or is it a 85D

    I'd wait till it finishes production before you get concerned. My information updated after completion.

    Supercharger network needs work

    How long does it usually take from beginning construction until a supercharger comes online usually? The Burbank station is nearly two months now, is that typical?

    Fascinating. That one has APH2 too.

    BTX8 battery-code on a 75D... or is it a 85D

    It was supposed to be potentially available as soon as 9/2, but I won't be able to pick it up till 9/15 because I'm out of town. I assume some others around this build time will get them before mine.

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    And I was contacted today about delivery. It unfortunately is going to be arriving for delivery while I'm out of town, so we had to push it out until 9/15. Could have had it as early as the 2nd. Soon!

    What do I actually get _today_ for "Enhanced Autopilot?"

    It doesn't have additional cameras. It has additional activated cameras for FSD. The 8 cameras are in your car, dormant, regardless if you buy it.

    Blog Tesla To Offer Home Charger Installation

    Where are the details about this? Not even a link to a press release. I don't see this on the configuration site.

    is base Model S 100D worth extra 23K

    If the new 75s are shipping with 85 batteries, this will end up not mattering too. Have there been any more confirmations of that since the vehicles in Norway? Has anyone taken delivery of a new 75 in the last couple weeks?

    is base Model S 100D worth extra 23K

    Once I discovered that the 100 wouldn't actually let me make use of 300 miles on a single charge reliably (elevation changes, etc.), it wasn't worthwhile for me. My most frequent "long" trip that wouldn't otherwise require a charge was LA to San Diego and back. But looking at the 100...

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    What are your projected delivery dates? Mine was confirmed 7/28 and they suggested they might be ahead of schedule. I'm currently showing Late August/September.

    After the M3 Reveal, Who Regrets Their Recent Model S Purchase?

    I was probably one of the last people to finalize a Model S purchase (mine locked on July 28th) before the reveal and I don't have any regrets. Yes, the Model 3 is a nice car. I expected as much. But it isn't as nice looking at the S, it doesn't have some of the S features. And I really dislike...

    All Bay Area Superchargers full this weekend....

    They didn't want to discourage sales. They did unlimited supercharging to subsidize early adoption. They probably should have cut it off earlier though. FWIW, the current deal is exactly what you're saying, you get 400 kwH per year and then you pay for it. But with getting a referral code being...

    All Bay Area Superchargers full this weekend....

    Definitely concerned the super chargers are going to be severely overburdened as the Model 3s ramp up. They are building stations, but the rate isn't nearly at the rate of adoption. I don't think the chargers not being free will be a huge factor in reducing use.

    Time to receive contract from an order

    I originally bought a 90 before transferring to a 75D after the options changed. They'd told me delivery was going to be delayed on anything coming from the East Coast as there is a problem with eastern logistics. That reveal was part of what I used to get them to transfer my deposit with a...

    "Teslas have a soft clear coat." Fiction or fact?

    The salesperson at Tesla told me the paint was soft when I asked about best practices on washing it.

    Leather gone? All interior options vegan?

    It's not just the leather is gone. They changed the packages. Air Suspension is now standard. And they rolled the premium sound and subzero into the Premium Interior option and priced it at $5,000. I think it was $3,500 for the interior, $2,000 for sound and $1,000 for subzero before. So a fair...

    Another Insurance Query specific to Southern California folks

    I'm receiving quotes for more than double what I'm seeing stated here. I have a clear driving record and low mileage, but the least I've seen has been $1200/six months (Ameriprise) I'm also finding that insurers have conflicting views of how to describe these vehicles. Some are calling the 90D...
