    SR MY - Took Delivery Today

    After having the S and now the 3 I strongly recommend the Tesla wall connector for charging. I suppose you could wire up a dryer outlet but having the charger is so much nicer. I too have solar panels (also with Powerwalls) and may add some more just to charge the EV.

    SR MY - Took Delivery Today

    Big Island is roughly the size of Connecticut and is larger than the other Hawaiin islands combined. OP: Congrats on nice looking Y. Exactly the same color combo of my 3 in NY and great for the 350 days of sun we have along the coast.. I'll keep my eyes out for you when I visit next in April...

    Voice Navigation pronunciation

    I recently switched the Nav to Spanish since I am learning it and now the Nav lady pronounces all the local street names as if they were written in Spanish. I have to pay close attention, even in my own hood. Excellent practice with numbers in Spanish.

    Buying brand new TMX but with damage reported - please advise!

    One anecdote for OP. I had a S75D that was hit twice in the span of a year, both times with no structural damage and the other driver admitted fault. They said they didn't see it...and it was red! The damage seemed minimal and would have cost only a fraction of what the Tesla authorized shop...

    Will TuneIn and Slacker require an additional fee when premium runs out?

    Not the case for me. I purchased my 3 in Nov 2018. A month or so ago I got the notice that my one year Premium was expiring so i paid up. The Slacker streaming in the car has continued without interruption and the features are unchanged. FWIW I recently subscribed to Slacker plus service for my...

    Pulled the trigger on an inventory 2019 Standard Range!

    Congrats mbhforum on your purchase. In case you want a separate set of wheels for winter, I have a set of OEM slipstream 19s with Michelin X-ICE 3 in newly perfect condition with plenty of tread left. They were taken off my red S75D when it came off the two year lease and I took delivery on a...

    Should I replace "DUAL MOTOR" emblem with "P3D+"?

    For AWD owners wanting a P3D-

    Folks, this is the only poster on this thread who actually knows what is happening.It would behoove us to read his previous posts and note the dates.

    For AWD owners wanting a P3D-

    I have been eagerly awaiting this "stealth upgrade" since the possibility was first floated. But for .5 sec I will definitely pass.

    For AWD owners wanting a P3D-

    There is also the following claiming a new option called Acceleration Boost is being readied as $2000 upgrade for Model 3. Tesla coming out with an "Acceleration Boost"??? Rumor maybe, but still interesting to say the least. : TeslaModel3

    For AWD owners wanting a P3D-

    Back in the day I basically showed up with my S75D which was right on the cusp of un-corkability. They said it was not eligible but did not show me the appropriate byte code. Since it was on a two year lease and I had an early Model 3 reservation I didn'r push. Other than to turn in the S and...

    For AWD owners wanting a P3D-

    I don't know many people inside Tesla so I cannot canvas them as you have. But, really, only one opinion inside Tesla matters for such things.

    For AWD owners wanting a P3D-

    There is precedent. Tesla "uncorked" early S75Ds, dropping the 0-60 time a full second and making them faster than the original P85. This was not an OTA update; it required a visit to SvC and a manual effort by techs. And they did it for free! By contrast, assuming that 980 AWDs can be...

    Auto pilot moving left and right in the lane with huge over correction?

    One month ago i had Costco put a set of new Michelin X-Ice on unused takeoff OEM 18s for my 3AWD. Drove perfectly and actually got slightly better mileage than original tires+wheels. This weekend I downloaded 40,2.1 and first drive I immediately noticed weaving on interstate.

    Don't worry about it. No matter how ugly you are, when you step out of the CT you will be a celebrity.

    So AJ has a price of 250 with a bear case of 10 and a bull case of 500. So he values TSLA at 250 +- 100%. How does anyone take this clown seriously?

    Why will you need a Cyber Truck?

    I plan to do lots of landscaping and gardening when I retire to Hawaii by then, so hauling stuff. I agree with previous poster from Arizona..i can park it outside and get most of the charge I'll need for free. Also to pick up all my suddenly renewed friends and their things when they come to visit.

    Might want to check your math. I think the number is more like 70,.000.

    Anyone else going to trade their Model 3 for Cybertruck?

    I ordered the Dual Motor truck and currently plan on keeping my Dual Motor 3, especially if Tesla gives me the option to pay for an OTA upgrade to a Performance Stealth. Not sure I want anyone else driving the truck. OTOH who knows what the situation will be in two years when (if) the trick...

    How to turn off the automatic navigation to work and home?

    My read is that this isn't for driver navigation. It is for the car. Elon thinks FSD is just around the corner (so to speak) and this is how the car will take us to/from work each day.

    For AWD owners wanting a P3D-

    This is what happened with the uncorking of the S75D. Typically disorganized communication from Tesla as to which cars were eligible. It wasn't a strict date or VIN cutoff; they had to access a certain byte in the configuration. Most cars made after a certain month were eligible but my car...

    Any issue with having the switching and solar gear outside and Powerwall in garage?

    OP: Your setup is exactly the same as the installation in my house in Hawaii. The one thing the installer mentioned is that they are locating the powerwalls on a side wall so they will not be exactly hit by cars entering or leaving. The three powerwalls are being stacked front-to-back on the floor.
