    Need Solid Tips on Removing CA HOV Stickers

    The best I've used to remove agresive adhesives from cars are steamer and 3M citrus based adhesive remover - https://www.amazon.com/3M-6040-ADHESIVE-REMOVER-Weight/dp/B003ZHOZRO/ref=mp_s_a_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1545108844&sr=8-2&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_QL65&keywords=3m+citrus+adhesive+remover The last one...

    Not updating = rated miles decreasing?

    It was not statement, just shared the facts as they appeared in my case. No conclusions. You can not know for sure if A caused B unless you have access to the raw code. Again I might be very wrong but the case is plausible and easily achievable if intended. Not accusing Tesla but I had...

    Not updating = rated miles decreasing?

    I don't say yhat the the capacity of the battery is reduced. What I am saying is that rated miles dropped - two not necessarily related things

    Not updating = rated miles decreasing?

    You update the iOS to your iPhone six to the latest version and it starts to be slow but this is not related to the update. Seriously I don't see how my theory is being stupid. If you eat new to you exotic food and start feeling bad I bet the first tough will be that the food made you sick.

    Not updating = rated miles decreasing?

    So if I understand it correctly it is perfectly normal to loose 2 miles a week in few weeks in a row? If true why I lost 4 miles of range for almost 2 years of ownership and 40 000 miles? I am not freaking out because battery is loosing miles. In my eyes 3% loss for 3 weeks is kind of odd...

    Not updating = rated miles decreasing?

    Jeff, I might going crazy no doubt about it ;) I know there is logical explanation which does not include conspiracy and/or paranormal activity - just trying to find it :) I am not saying that Tesla is penalizing for not updating. May be they are motivating me to update with some miles back as...

    Not updating = rated miles decreasing?

    I am not paranoiac but this are the facts. I stated in my post that this may be coincidence but no proof for either. That's why I ask if there is someone with rated miles big drop in the past weeks. Nothing else changed besides v9 - same temps in the garage, same time of charge, same miles...

    Not updating = rated miles decreasing?

    I am experiencing big decline in the rated miles in the pas 3 weeks /since ver. 9/ was released /. I have S85 AP1 with 51k miles. I don't want to update to V9 at this point since personal preference to be able to choose what to have on the top of the screen. In the past 3 weeks I've lost 6...

    Autopilot speeding ticket

    I have AP1 and the car never automatically slowed down because of speed limit change. I have to manually change the max speed for AP/TACC. It displays the new limit on the dash but that's about it. Is there a setting I am missing to make it work?

    Updated autopilot sucks!

    Hi Matt, Thank you for your answer. I am glad that the way you hold the wheel keeps you nag free. With the way I hold it /same way as I hold it when AP is off/ does not satisfy the computer and I got nags constantly. I was getting them before the update but now it is a bit excessive and...

    Updated autopilot sucks!

    I understand it is all about the torque on the wheel the car sees. If this is how it is going to be from now on why they don't implement some kind of torque status like the orange/green arch for the power which shows you silently the amount of torque it senses and when it is not enough. This...

    Tesla broke my Autopilot -> Don't UPDATE!

    Here is "the big deal" explanation from my point of view: I use AP on freeways only. My driving style is to hold the wheel lightly with small but smooth corrections if needed /this is for straight road, turns are turns/. Using the same grip and torque with AP I still get nags so for me it takes...

    Updated autopilot sucks!

    Guys, nagging every 25 seconds does not solve the problem but it is a try to cover it. Decreasing dramatically time between nags in order to make it safer is like putting lipstick on a pig - not changing anything to better

    Updated autopilot sucks!

    Call me crazy but what about Tesla is moving nag free to FSD? Makes sense to me. AP is assisting the driver and the driver gets nagged but in FSD nags are gone. You want nag free drive - buy FSD

    It is not because the other driver didn't notice on time that I am stopping. Boths cars was at rest for about 2 minutes /long left turn red signal/. Then she for some strange reason released her brakes while still red an no one was moving /see the video/

    Updated autopilot sucks!

    The force I need to apply to get rid of /most/ nagging makes use of autopilot uncomfortable. I see no point to even bother using it in this condition. If I have to apply this amount of force and think if this makes the computer happy it is better to drive myself. I've been there already with...

    Software Update 2018.21.9 75bdbc11

    Just tested it out and the new frequency of the reminders to keep my hands on the wheel are more than annoying. And the flashing top edge is less attention grabber than the whole rim flashing. I find it les frustrating to just drive myself than to fight warnings every minute.

    Firmware 9 in August will start rolling out full self-driving features!!!

    In his tweet Elon says "in August update". There is no "this August", "August 2018" or anything else that ties the update to this year. If this update is released in the month of August /any year/ he was spot on :)

    Is Xpel inside overkill?

    No way $200 if they work on the car anyway. If it was me I would charge whatever costs me to acquire the kit. Install is complimentary addition to the main /way more expensive/ service but this is just me.

    Cheap DIY Paint Protection Film Project

    Small advice: do not push the bubble to smaller size because by doing this you stretch the film. When using needle poke the hole at the edge ov the bubble and push the air to the hole gently. Poking in the middle ov the bubble may complicate the job.
