    2016 Model X 90D charging at 168kW

    Not sure if anyone has posted this on supercharging speeds yet but my legacy 2015 MX 90D charges at 168kW at V3 superchargers now. It’s a quick peak and tapers off but still pretty fast!

    19” Slipstream Wheels and tires 245/45/19

    Full set of slipstream wheels. Fronts are Goodyear eagle touring and I had replaced my rears with Michelin Primacy. Tread still looks meaty but obviously the tires aren’t new. All the wheels have some curb rash. Asking 800. Located in Jacksonville FL.

    Did you happen to charge to 100% and check the range? Also per poster above this does not have free unlimited supercharging?

    Wiring issue with car electrical?

    It’s an expensive car. I’d rather everything worked properly. It’s a fairly inexpensive repair. Did you get it looked at?

    Wiring issue with car electrical?

    I had issues with my car's wiring harness to the door. I removed the harness and repaired it (several wires were broken). This took a lot of time and effort in tracking down the wires at fault and then repairing them. If you want to skip the headache you can buy the entire harness from tesla for...

    Are 90 batteries limited on supercharging like the 85

    To be fair he said currently. So no advantage to 90D then?

    Are 90 batteries limited on supercharging like the 85

    It’s not my MAIN concern. These cars I’m looking at have taken the majority of their depreciation. I travel a LOT so I don’t want to pay for supercharging. I would say the majority of my charging is off super chargers. I also prefer the look and feel of the Model S.

    Are 90 batteries limited on supercharging like the 85

    So most options being equal is there a reason to pay a premium for a 90? I think I’ve seen a 10-15 mile difference in range in used cars.

    Are 90 batteries limited on supercharging like the 85

    We have an S85 and the supercharging speed is limited. We are considering a second model S and are trying to pick between an 85D and a 90D. I know the 85D is still an 85 so the supercharging speed will be limited due to the recent updates by Tesla. Pretty shady but it is what it is. Does this...

    Cooling louvers never open

    Guys, I need your help! Tesla tech came out to do recall work. I asked him if there were any faults and he said no faults in logs but he would do a thermal test but couldn't due to time constraints. As he turned on the AC both louvers opened! I took pictures to have proof, but they both opened...

    Transfer reservation

    For certain reasons we will not be taking delivery of the Model Y we pre-ordered. I have a friend that is interested in the car. Instead of losing the 100 dollars is it possible to give him my reservation?

    Turns out they do have foam inside. Just got a flat. Big piece through the tire.

    Should Tesla do something about my degradation?

    This thread is going nowhere and people are just attacking each other. We should all just leave it as it is.
  18. S

    Should Tesla do something about my degradation?

    It is what it is. Tesla won’t do anything. Sell the car and don’t look back. Don’t give them anymore money after they treated you like that. Wait for other manufacturers to make mature EVs. I don’t think I would buy any other EV right now so might have to wait till other manufacturers catch up.

    Should Tesla do something about my degradation?

    Are the battery gate and charge gate people being naive and entitled too? For all we know the degradation isn’t real but a voltage cap put on by Tesla. Tesla Model S Battery Life: How Much Range Loss For Electric Car Over Time? Tesla battery degradation at less than 10% after over 160,000...

    Should Tesla do something about my degradation?

    Tesla won’t give you anything though and you can’t force them. Wise up and don’t buy another Tesla. I know I won’t be buying another after what they did to our 2015 85(battery gate and charge gate). I kept thinking they would make it right but it’s clear they won’t. So we cancelled two Model Y...

    Should Tesla do something about my degradation?

    You guys are being rude to him for no reason. The situation he is in sucks. Yeah he doesn’t have any warranty and Tesla doesn’t have to do anything. However when the Model S first came out there were claims of 80% plus life left on cells after a Million miles!!!! You guys remember those...

    Cooling louvers never open

    Supercharged today 94 degrees outside. Everyone’s louvers we’re open other than mine. They never opened when I plugged it in, checked halfway and checked at the end. But my supercharging speeds are fine. I don’t understand. The cabin cools just fine. I had it set to 75 and it was super...

    What should I paint my wheels? Or sell them?

    Lol I don't hate my wheels. They're just in bad shape and I need to figure something out. I think I will go with metallic grey. Real paint not plasti dip.

    What should I paint my wheels? Or sell them?

    Powder coating is expensive. I was trying to keep this a DIY solution. I’ve painted cars before but never painted a wheel. But I have the painting equipment.

    What should I paint my wheels? Or sell them?

    I have a black car with a set of cyclones. I just changed them out for some slipstreams but I do think the cyclones look a little bit more premium. My cyclones have major curb rash on wheel From someone else driving them. Terrible curb rash. I’ll attach a picture. And another wheel has the...

    Michelin Pilot Sport 3 Performance/Efficiency

    Got the new tires. He already had them mounted on a set of slipstreams so I got new wheels and TPMS as well. I guess going from cyclones to slipstreams might lose some mileage as well. Road noise seems to have dropped 10-15 decibels. My consumption is KILLING ME. Used to be 250 wh/mi around...

    Cooling louvers never open

    Yeah my supercharging follows the usual taper that older 85kwh cars have these days. Starts super high at Low SOC and tapers to like 60 kW when the battery is about half charged. Sucks but it seems to be normal for the cars now.

    Cooling louvers never open

    Haven’t checked yet because I’ve been driving much. The reason I was worried was due to limited supercharging speed but I can still get over 100kw at the supercharger and I heard if they are defective you won’t get over 60.

    Model S Dual Chargers, what do I need to do?

    Is there any evidence that charging at 80amp causes damage? Or rather measurable damage? My hospital has 80 amp chargers so I charge at 80amps. Might change my behavior if there is damage.

    Model S Dual Chargers, what do I need to do?

    Ideally you would have at least 200 amp service to your house and you would run a 100amp breaker off the main panel and wire your hpwc to that. Of course you want to run do a load test. It sounds fancy but it’s just a calculation. You can do some reading and figure out if your breaker box and...

    Model S Dual Chargers, what do I need to do?

    Gen 1 and gen 2 hpwc will deliver 80amps. Gen 3 will will deliver 48amps.
  33. S

    Model S Dual Chargers, what do I need to do?

    You need a hpwc and a 100amp breaker that will deliver 80amps to the car. 80 amps at 240V is 19.2 kWh. Should be good for around 50 miles an hour. Or if you have a Usable battery of 70kwh it will take about 3.6 hours to charge from zero.

    Michelin Pilot Sport 3 Performance/Efficiency

    The deal is very good. He’s basically giving these tires away to me. I’m getting a set of 4 new ones for 200 bucks. I was lazy about replacing my current tires. They’re not completely worn down but they’re pretty far gone. I guess the reason I don’t wear out the tires much is that I’m always...

    Cooling louvers never open

    I have never seen my cooling louvers on the sides open. 2015 S85. Everything on the car works fine. AC is cold, and it supercharges up to 115kw peak and then drops like all the other older cars. How do I check if the louvers work fine? Is there a way to make them open and close? It's been...

    Cruise control on autopilot on AP1

However when the road changes to 60mph the car doesn't slow down to 65mph or if the speed increases to...

    Supercharging while doing ownership change

    I bought a used model S but haven’t done the ownership change yet because I’ve been traveling and needed to supercharge. My question is, if I start the ownership transfer process will I lose access to supercharging till the transfer is complete? This is a 2015 model vehicle so I believe the...

    Options on a 2015 Model S

    Options on a 2015 Model S

    I'm buying a used Model S and I have the built sheet from the owner. I have a few questions about the options. Is this essentially fully optioned out? Also, I see that he paid for the performance seats. I thought these were 2014 seats, but this is a 2015 vehicle? So will they be gen 1 or gen 2...
