    Anyone had a software downgrade with their HW3 retrofit?

    My car reverted to 2019.32 something from 2019.8. The MCU crashed several times. Eventually the car downloaded 2019.4.1 and all is well.

    This has to be a bug. Report it.

    WTB: NIB gen2 wall connector

    Looking to buy a NIB gen2 wall connector. Black or regular, doesn’t matter. Long cord. Near DC in person is great, but will consider shipping if we split the costs. Andrew

    Which color do you prefer your Roadster 2020?

    Paint to sample would be nice. I’ve always had a thing for cobalt blue.

    Apartment building charging (weird configuration)

    Talk to your association and hire an electrician to do this correctly. What you’re suggesting is a recepie for badness. All it will take is one instance of your neighbor not being able to get in and they will blame “all EVs” for years.

    Supercharger-Northbrook, IL

    72kW ubran chargers would make sense at Northbrook Court. Anything to not have to use the chargers at the Highland Park SC.

    Anyone get charged for not immediately disconnected from Supercharger?

    Yes, but you don't get an idle fee alert. Charging almost done and charging done are different.

    Anyone get charged for not immediately disconnected from Supercharger?

    Supercharger Idle Fee The Tesla app allows owners to remotely monitor their vehicle, alerting them when their charge is nearly complete and again once fully charged. For every additional minute a car remains connected to the Supercharger, it will incur a $0.40 idle fee. If the car is moved...

    May AWD/Performance Orders -- VIN / Status Thread

    Yes, although in my experience none of that matters. I think it's a falsehood that Tesla is prioritizing cash transactions, or people who have completed the steps vs. others.

    May AWD/Performance Orders -- VIN / Status Thread

    Ordered AWD on 5/23. No VIN yet, edit button is gone.

    Hey, just now got my 'invite' email!~

    Model 3 vin assignment works differently than S/X. If you have a VIN, your car has already been built. S/X cars are generally made to order because of the number of options. The 3’s sre being built and then assigned to customers as configurations are matched to orders. Your 3 is within a few...

    Supercharger - Tyson's Corner

    Nope, it's going to be 10 72kW stalls. I started the 40 unit rumor based on information I received about 9-12 months ago. The macro level location was right (Tysons Mall), as was the fact that it's going to be 72kW "urban" chargers, but the quantity and exact location (which lot) was wrong.

    Supercharger - Tyson's Corner

    We've known for awhile that it was going to be at the mall. There is insufficient space and power capacity at Tyco. Tyco doesn't even have enough space for all the deliveries they're doing. Adding a SpC there would be a disaster.

    Just placed order yesterday, got call from Telsa today.

    None of this is surprising. Tesla has built up a significant inventory of RWD cars that they've been holding back to maximize the federal tax credit. They're now matching RWD orders against available inventory, some of which is already at the east coast depot in Alabama. If you want a RWD car...

    Model 3 Charger not turning on with 50 amp plug

    Your kitchen should not have a 14-50 using a 40a breaker. But we’ll leave that alone. Tes-s’s guess is a good one. Both legs are on the same phase. How any electrician could screw that up is beyond me, but it fits. Are you sure the breaker is still on? Do you have a multimeter that you can...

    Anyone with VA special fuel plates

    We had gen2 grandfathered plates that we gave up this year with the most recent changes. There is very little utility in NoVA now.

    So who actually has configured their P or AWD?

    The problem with this plan is Tesla is likely to add additional features over time. They would need to send an email out to everyone that had already configured to optionally re-configure. It also locks in today’s pricing. Tesla needs the ability to adjust pricing based on a few factors. The...

    Idiot trying to unplug my car during Supercharging

    Was you You’re missing the big one. It resets the priority between A/B. If you’re in A and you got there first, and then shortly thereafter B arrives, with both cars at low SOCs, A will get a greater share of available power. By briefly pushing the button on A, B now has priority.

    Elon says AWD and Perf orders start at end of next week!

    Sorry, no, if anything Tesla starts West coast and goes East. I'm in Maryland, owner, 1st day, and it bombed out on the last step (paying the $2500) when I tried to submit my AWD order.

    Elon says AWD and Perf orders start at end of next week!

    Has anyone that had the problem ordering, e.g. you were allowed to configure AWD but then it errored out on payment, resulting in the option to order AWD disappearing, had success? In other words, the option reappeared? I’m worried that those of us that have fallen into this edge case are going...

    So who actually has configured their P or AWD?

    I tried to configure AWD. The option was available to me. Configured, and tried to pay with Apple Pay (twice) and it errored out. Tried again with a credit card, and got a similar error. Started over and the AWD option is gone. Called Tesla sales. They punted. They said the website was...

    Tesla Owners Mid Atlantic Summer Social - Saturday June23rd 2018!

    The creamery will back 1/2 gallons in dry ice for the trip home. I was there last weekend and we brought back 5 gallons. It's soooo good. I passed a train museum near Altoona. It was pouring rain so we didn't stop. Perhaps this trip!

    Tesla Owners Mid Atlantic Summer Social - Saturday June23rd 2018!

    I'm looking forward to seeing many old and new faces in June! We selected Bald Eagle State Park, near State College, PA, to make it accessible by most of the Mid-Atlantic region within ~4 hour drive (one SpC hop, more or less, depending on your battery size.) Our survey results from the...

    Tysons Mall now installing new bunch of chargers

    The urban chargers are supposed to be going in Tyson’s Corner Center (Tyson’s 1, not Galleria) in the garage below Lord & Taylor. This is what I was told a few months ago. I haven’t heard anything to dispute it.

    "Charge Connector Update in Progress..."

    Interesting. I’ll keep an eye on it and see if it updates/changes.

    "Charge Connector Update in Progress..."

    I have the same setup. I haven’t seen my HPWCs update yet, and I still see 8A “reserved” for a car that is plugged in but not charging. I assume it’s 8A because that’s the least that can be offered to the car.

    Burned by Tesla on idle fees. Something to know

    You’re fine, since it sounds like the SpC was less than 50% full overnight.

    2018.14.13 update

    I have three Teslas (S/X/3) and this has not been my experience. I think the push to the 3’s has generally been fast compared to typical S/X pushes.

    Supercharger - Fredericksburg, VA

    I’ll be driving back up to NoVA from Richmond this afternoon. I’ll stop by. It looks like it may be much easier to get to when heading south, though.

    MCU Retrofit

    I suspect employees are still being told internally that retrofits are not possible. I think we just witnessed another on the fly decision from Elon, without him checking on the feasibility. Tomorrow, someone in engineering is going to get the assignment to figure it out. The wiring harnesses...

    Declined my Model3 during delivery due to excessive paint swirls and now i am stuck

    I’m not sure what you’re going to escalate. They allowed you to re-order without penantly. It’s likely your replacement will arrive in a few weeks. Most loan checks are good for 30 days. You’ll have to update the VIN, though.

    Superchargers: Fairfax / Alexandria

    I hope it’s not the top deck on that lot. It gets crazy busy on the weekends because of the easy access to AMC. It will get ICEd.

    Superchargers: Fairfax / Alexandria

    I thought I shared this last year.. but now I can’t seem to find it. The rumor is 40 urban superchargers in the underground lot near Macy’s at Tyson’s Corner Mall.
