    Looks like I found one of the few P100D's without Ludicrous Mode

    The line under P100D indicates it does have ludicrous. Had it been removed, the logo would have been updated electronically

    Elon tweets "pure vision" will solve phantom braking

    Phantom breaking was due to vision inputs not the radar. By doubling down on vision, how does it solve that problem

    Pre-facelift vin <50900 can't use v3 supercharger?

    It should definitely work albeit at a lower charging rate.

    Intermittent Failure of AC Blower on Start

    Had exact situation as OP (2012 Model S). It was the DC-DC converter - the power to the AC gets cut apparently with then DCDC converter isn't working properly. There are threads on this issue - the cost is 3-4k from Tesla, but apparently it's just just a $10 fuse if you can have a third party...

    2012 Model S P85 Battery Replacement Receipt - sharing is caring

    no cables changed out.. fortunate to have done this under warranty. Ideal weather and with SOC in <20 at a V3 that is relatively empty. Kept it up there for just a few minutes really, and seemed to settle at 110-125kw through SOC 50ish. Honestly, knowing what supercharging does to these...

    2012 Model S P85 Battery Replacement Receipt - sharing is caring

    I have this battery - I've been able to get it up to 150kw. Also a 2012 Model S. That is pretty amazing for a 2012 Tesla that was sold before superchargers were introduced and that had an initial cap of 90kw charging that subsequently fell to 40-50max

    Supercharger - Sun Valley, CA (24 V3 Superchargers, ePlan filed)

    yeah.. amazing work @MarcoRP !!! Looking forward to this one - good location based on freeways and geography.. not an area I'd go to hang out otherwise, so will get to know more parts of the Valley

    new battery purchased for 18 K

    are you able to take a picture of the new battery label? Look under the passenger front tirewell towards the battery. I find it surprising that they put in a crap refurbished battery for a paying customer. There is another thread with a guy that got a 350v/90khw battery in his 70 and...

    Out of Warranty Drive Unit Replacement and Cost

    Near Vista: also check out EVWest in San Marcos. OP: get this done by a third party. It will be 1/3 the cost with a repurposed drive unit. Also, the milling noise does not affect performance. You can drive it like this 'forever' This is your reward for keeping it 'pristine' with low miles...

    Model S 100D - Full charge - 300 miles - should be 335?

    you can check the actual kwh in your battery using ScanMyTesla or TMSpy. your battery has normal degradation - it is based on a multitude of factors: stress on the battery (time spent at extreme high/low state of charge, supercharging, as well as a time component.) Being 4 years old, regardless...

    Supercharger - San Marcos, CA (under construction Apr 2021)

    Great location! Amenities galore and also fills a gap in North County San Diego. Folks traveling on the 15 may gripe about the drive off their route.

    Will an 8 year old Model S be almost worthless?

    dang... it's been 9 years and the "Brand New Model S" would lead me to believe that Tesla has no plans of abandoning the Model S
  24. gaswalla

    Will an 8 year old Model S be almost worthless?

    I actually believe that a 2012 Model S with a lot of miles is a better purchase than one with low miles. A high mileage car will have fixed the issues that needed to be addressed early on. Especially if things were fixed with v3 or v4 of that part, it’ll last forever.

    Experience on Battery Degradation and How Tesla Handles It

    OP should get the cable and use ScanMyTesla or TMSpy. You can identify bad modules and, yes, Tesla will replace the battery if there are faulty modules (under warranty). It's real easy to do the above, if not, spending $55 has low likelihood to result in battery replacement, but the chance is...

    Should Maximum Charge Be Changed Over Time

    Your battery has experienced degradation as well as "battery gate." (look it up)... your battery is essentially a 70 (or less) vs the 85 you started with. You still should avoid 100%. It just gives you less range than new. This is the process by which older batteries sometimes see accelerated...

    Does Model S work as family car?

    the S - ABSOLUTELY works as a family car. It's the ideal family car. (if you are looking for an SUV, the Y may be the ideal family SUV)

    New Tesla Y defective - what would you do?

    DU replacement is a straightforward repair for Tesla. The modular build (and their experience with this repair), makes it nothing you should worry about. It's still b.s that you have to go through this, though. If you are happy with the fit and finish, just get the DU replaced, and you'll have...

    2012 Model S P85 Battery Replacement Receipt - sharing is caring

    Thanks. It is the new 350 volt architecture. the first new battery of this sort was listed as 85kwh and with the same part number with ‘A’ and gives a range of about 285. This is the ‘B’ revision. The A part had about 89 kWh in capacity, so it may be the exact same, just appropriately...

    ID.4 Canadian pricing announced, undercuts MY LR AWD by $20k CAD :(

    yeah.. CCS is a good option, but depending on 1-2 chargers run by a third party in the middle of nowhere on a road trip is not a good plan. (been there, won't do it again)

    ID.4 Canadian pricing announced, undercuts MY LR AWD by $20k CAD :(

    took a test drive of the id4 yesterday. Well built car; actually very pleasantly surprised.. (this coming from a guy with 3 Tesla's and more on the way). Discussed my thoughts with wife, after I stopped talking, she looked at me and said, "but can they use Superchargers?".. folks are realizing...

    I accidentally charged to 95%. Is it bad if I leave it at that stage all night and day?

    you'd have more luck draining the battery running the heater on max... but it's unnecessary

    Did you ever measure your Model X Cabin Noise

    The Model X noise is highly correlated with the tire size and the type of air suspension. 22 inch wheels are noisy - low profile, tall rims on the very heavy and fast X is going to be noisy. Adaptive air suspension reduces road noise. Also, Tesla doesn't do enough (anything?) to dampen road...
  38. gaswalla

    I feel like a nerd and a kid all over again, adding a Model X to the garage.

    Congrats. since essentially noone is purchasing the 2020’s right now, pending the refresh, you could ask them to flip the switch for FSD. You’d probably be able to get it thrown into the deal.

    Just ordered a preowned model X!
