    Sorry, no idea.

    Kudos Bonnie, Devina, Jon and Tesla

    For those interested, HBO just released a new documentary & Dick Shannon's story is part of it. Here's the trailer: Alternate Endings: Six New Ways to Die in America | Documentaries | HBO

    Yellow screen? Force Tesla to Replace it!

    My assumption is that it is glue within the screen causing the yellow border - that would be the manufacturer. You're saying that Tesla glued components together & didn't purchase an assembled MCU?

    Yellow screen? Force Tesla to Replace it!

    You're right, I didn't post that (but I obviously linked to it). The numbers you're quoting, however, are from the operating range, not storage temps. I'd say that makes a difference (so did they, since there are diff specs called out for both). Interior temp & relative humidity are within...

    Yellow screen? Force Tesla to Replace it!

    Agree. I hadn't seen the MCU model number before, but a quick google search turns up the spec sheet. Environmental conditions are called out. (Note that the max 80 deg while using the screen is celcius, which translates to 176 deg fahrenheit ...storage upper limit is higher yet.) So back to...

    "You people"? Really?

    If by 'TMC', you're also including members who give passive-aggressive responses (or just leave a rating that doesn't fit the post) and/or attack anyone who doesn't agree w them (pro or anti Tesla), I agree. :cool:

    "You people"? Really?

    Annnnd I have the folding 2nd row. Annnnd I have the 2.0 wiring harness. It may be the only Founders Series w that config.

    "You people"? Really?

    I've been driving a Tesla since 2011. So yes. :) Roadster (sold), Signature Model X #2 (sold), driving a Founders Series Model X P100D.

    About to be a new Roadster 1.5 owner... Open to advice!

    This video should help with the 'how do I get in/out'. You'll only think about it the first month or so, then you'll build muscle memory & you'll wonder why it was ever an issue. And then you'll get in the passenger seat to let someone else drive and will remember why it was an issue.

    "You people"? Really?

    Bottom line, it's the policy of this site not to share details on why someone has been banned, permanent or temporary. They're consistent on that. I happen to agree with that policy. Sure, there are times I'd love to know the prurient details, but that's just gossip. I know the boundaries here &...

    "You people"? Really?

    Exactly. He cannot respond here. I would be uncomfortable with only one side of the story being told. On the other hand, Neroden does have other social media accounts. I imagine we'll see him sharing his opinion in no time. :)

    "You people"? Really?

    LOL @ disagreeing with my agreement to someone else @aubreymcfato . I don't agree with them in your opinion? :) I think I do! But more on topic: Do you think the site should talk about why they banned a member, without the banned member having a chance to respond? Seems like we'd only get...

    "You people"? Really?

    100% agree.

    "You people"? Really?

    As a former moderator of this site (actually the first mod, not counting owners), I thought I'd weigh in. I've been privvy to plenty of discussions in the past 'behind the curtain' and there's always more to the story than it appears on the surface. In my years here, no one was ever banned for...

    That fits with what I was told. Thanks for sharing!

    That's what I had thought, too. But here's the tweet.

    Anyone brought the Model X SunShade from weathertech?

    I have the Covercraft sunshade. It's slightly higher than a normal sunshade (and def doesn't go up as far as the Weathertech), but I'm in the middle of Summer #3 with it and it does a great job, esp if I'm parked facing the sun. I haven't felt a need for more coverage. That said, the...

    MCU Yellow Border - Fixed!

    Also want to point out that each & every time you ask me a question and I give a straightforward response, it is not helping your arbitration case. My screen is white. I'm a happy customer. There are other customers reporting the same thing, also happy. And the more air time this gets, the more...

    MCU Yellow Border - Fixed!

    I did express sympathy & told them they were free to reach out. I'd be happy to talk 1:1. But I'm not going to apologize for sharing a personal experience. It's like some of you feel it's my fault for being happy over something. Unless you're looking for a 'I'm sorry my screen is white again'...

    MCU Yellow Border - Fixed!

    So I shouldn't have tweeted about my personal experience? I totally understand people not happy that my tweet was used - but I tweeted about my personal experience & what I was told at the time. I was thrilled about the fix and wanted to share some good news. And I'm still thrilled about the...

    MCU Yellow Border - Fixed!

    I'm sorry you feel that way. My sole motivation for posting was to let other owners know about the UV fix rolling out. You assume wrongly regarding compensation. Yes, I've gotten some referral rewards (no free Roadster, though!), but nothing like 'hundreds of thousands of dollars'. I'm sorry...

    MCU Yellow Border - Fixed!

    I saw your post earlier & double-checked mine this afternoon. It's clean. I checked it with sketchpad on so no background would interfere. Nothing. Sorry it didn't clear yours up. It worked for me. Maybe mine wasn't as bad to begin with?

    This pretty much lays out the timeline of my fix, for the doubters here on TMC: Bonnie Norman on Twitter

    MCU Yellow Border - Fixed!

    I don't have a copy yet - and will be happy to post when I do. My service advisor is out for the holiday week - I emailed him after I saw the request here, though it's not high on my priority list. :) I'm going to assume it has two items - the $150 charge for the realignment and then the UV...

    MCU Yellow Border - Fixed!

    LOL. Or you could have just talked to me instead of casting aspersions. Or you could have asked the older members of the forum about my integrity. I'm not normally a conspiracy theorist, but it occurred to me when I read your post that you could be one of the shorts who like to cast doubt on...

    MCU Yellow Border - Fixed!

    No one was begging for help from anyone. I've never offered to help when it wasn't sincere. I don't work in Tesla Service. I don't work for Tesla. And sure, I've gained influence over the years because (as many can tell you), I've done what I can to help people. And I've been able to help...

    MCU Yellow Border - Fixed!

    I offered to help. But please, make me feel like a jerk for doing so. Maybe you could offer help instead of just being snarky?

    MCU Yellow Border - Fixed!

    You weren't told there was a fix coming?
  29. bonnie

    MCU Yellow Border - Fixed!

    I thought I was pretty clear that I was talking about the yellow border. I also was pretty clear about WHY I was saying to be patient. If you'd like some help getting your issue fixed, dm me. But maybe no attitude? Please.

    MCU Yellow Border - Fixed!

    They don't have long-term reliability testing on this fix, so I read that as being cautious and appropriately setting expectations. Based on the fact that it wasn't cured correctly by the screen mfr to begin with & this appears to finish the curing process, I have higher hopes (though I...

    MCU Yellow Border - Fixed!

    Not over the weekend. :)
  32. bonnie

    MCU Yellow Border - Fixed!

    My understanding is that the yellowing is from incorrectly cured adhesive that appeared over time - if that's the case, it makes sense that finishing the cure would be permanent.
  33. bonnie

    MCU Yellow Border - Fixed!

    LOL, I'm sure I would have had the same thought cross my mind. But def was a repair using UV and not a replacement. Zero doubt in my mind.
  34. bonnie

    MCU Yellow Border - Fixed!

    I thought it would be good for people to see it's real. :) My poor service advisor over the past few months ... 'We're working on a fix, Bonnie.' ... 'Okay, soooo maybe you could tell me what I definitely should NOT do to keep from harming my screen so that you'd have to replace it??' -wink...
  35. bonnie

    MCU Yellow Border - Fixed!

    No, sorry - they usually email me the service invoice around now. I'll be happy to share when I get it (alignment was $150). I'd just make sure that your service advisor has the yellow border noted on your customer account. It's going to take awhile for them to get to everyone, so just knowing...

    There seem to be a few threads on this around the forum, so I thought I'd just post here. I wanted to let the forum know that the yellow border on my MCU is gone. Bonnie Norman on Twitter (before/after pics) As I noted in the tweet, be patient. They have developed a tool /fixture that...

    2019 Tesla shareholder meeting lunch

    Current status for lunch: The tickets sold out for 30 people, I refunded one this morning for an attendee who cannot make it. So officially one seat left. (Only stated no refunds because worst case, some person would buy up all the tickets, request a refund at the last minute, and totally ruin...

    2019 Tesla shareholder meeting lunch

    For others just thinking about it - we have an upper limit on # of attendees and are about halfway there. If we bump up against the upper limit, I'll talk to the restaurant about increasing headcount. All this to say 'if you're going to get around to it in the next few days, now would be a good...

    2019 Tesla shareholder meeting lunch

    Thanks to @ORB's for setting this up. You can make reservations for lunch thru EventBrite (TSLA Annual Meeting - After Lunch). Seating is limited, due to restaurant size, but we've all fit in there before!

    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    You know what I hate about this list (and have shared with Clean Technica)? If you pick any news topic ... Tesla, government, whatever, there is going to be good news and negative news. If a reporter is dinged for writing a factual story about a bad event, this type of measure would rate them as...

    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    I blocked you on twitter because you jumped on a thread to disparage, when the thread was not about what you were upset about. I gave you a chance to back down. You didn't. I blocked. I am not your social media platform. Go start your own thread and say whatever you want. But when a simple...

    Founders Reservations

    It took quite awhile for Model S Signature reservations to close out - but once it was clear production was imminent in coming months, they went fast. I suspect that as it becomes more certain as to when launch will be, you'll see the same thing happen with Roadster Founder reservations. The...

    Breaking customer promises

    Yes, exactly my thoughts. If I see a house for sale, they don't put a limitation on the price. That's what it is being offered for - but they can raise or lower the price or change the terms of the sale anytime. What they can't do is sell it to me and then change the terms before the deal is...
