    So you paid $86,200, and harvested the $7,500 federal rebate, making your cost basis $78,700. You drove 16,000 miles and now want to sell for 96.6% of your basis? Just want to make sure I've got this right.

    Minnesota Superchargers (location speculation, discussion)

    Anyone hear anything about the forthcoming west-metro supercharger's location? The supercharger map on Tesla's website shows - I believe - three "coming soon" spots generally in the west metro. This is long overdue in my opinion, would love to know where they may go in! Anyone?

    Software 8.0 Likes/Dislikes for Pre-Autopilot Model S

    Is there an email address at which Tesla can be contacted directly about these issues?

    Software 8.0 Likes/Dislikes for Pre-Autopilot Model S

    Couldn't agree more. I use camera and nav on main UI, so changing sources is now clumsy and dangerous. Elon will point at the new left wheel controls to toggle favorites, but that doesn't allow you to change the source (specifically there is no way to get to Bluetooth via favorites). What...

    Minnesota Superchargers (location speculation, discussion)

    MSP has, for some reason, been treated differently than the other ~32 largest cities in the United States:

    Major Cities without Superchargers - Outliers

    Certainly get that - just drawing attention to how much further SCs are from two pretty major, progressive metro areas versus the 32 other large metro areas in the US.
  9. B

    Major Cities without Superchargers - Outliers

    Nowhere in my post did it say these should be used by locals. The table posted simply compares facts - mileage from nearest supercharger to each of the largest metro areas (note the header - it doesn't say city). Like any good Texan you're doing a great job talking about your state. But this...

    Major Cities without Superchargers - Outliers

    If that is your logic, then why would Tesla have put Superchargers in the other 30 largest cities (34 minus NY & LA minus SEA & MSP)? Did they make a mistake?
  11. B

    Major Cities without Superchargers - Outliers

    Agree that they aren't for local use - but it's not always so simple. Visiting Seattle or MSP would be much easier if you could charge up when you arrive, or as you leave. Tesla put superchargers so close to the other 31 major cities - so no matter your opinion of SC's intended use - MSP and...

    Major Cities without Superchargers - Outliers

    Found this list on twitter - why do you think Seattle and Minneapolis have been treated differently than the other ~30 major cities? Both have plenty of Teslas (and would rank very high in terms of progressiveness among the cities on this list)...

    Firmware 7.1

    the release notes are the same as the prior version - this is just an incremental update, which only notably updates driver profiles so they carry the driver's preferred creep setting.
  14. B

    Firmware 7.1

    Was a quick update - the only thing listed in the "with this update" section (the upper portion of the release notes that isn't the same as prior) is that now Creep settings will update with driver profiles. Previously, the creep setting wasn't part of the driver profile. Also - this update...

    Firmware 7.0 - For Classic Model S

    All - there is a new/separate thread for 7.1 on classic S, my follow up quick thoughts (as promised here) are there.

    Firmware 7.1 - For Classic Model S

    Just took my 7.1 classic S for a spin. Shocker here I know - but prepare to be let down. no "major UI upgrades" despite Elon's tweet last fall to a classic owner. The speedo looks the same. The toy car is there. It still looks like the dash display nodes are multiple design concepts...

    Firmware 7.0 - For Classic Model S

    Any Classics get 7.1 yet (started appearing today apparently). I'm wondering if Elon will make good on his tweet that the big improvements for Classics will be in 7.1. Welp as as I was typing this I got the notification! Will report back.

    Firmware 7.0 - For Classic Model S

    Apacheguy, per my email exchange with Tesla, the performance improvements for RWD cars are "model year dependent" - which is a vague (but theoretically nice!) way of saying "only available on recent (autopilot age) cars". It's becoming clearer and clearer that Autopilot cars are "Model S...

    Firmware 7.0 - For Classic Model S

    Ecarfan - please read closer. I am referring to the entire section of the v7 Autopilot notes which has the heading "Improved Performance". Our classis RWD cars didn't get this. The detailed writeup under Improved Performance is totally different than the throttle response stuff you are...

    Firmware 7.0 - For Classic Model S

    OK...I emailed Tesla about the inclusion/exclusion of certain features (RWD performance and zero speed improvements) among different RWD cars. They acknowledged that some cars don't get the features, and said it was due to "model year differences". So, in my quoted post above, looks like the...

    Vin 38k, s85.

    Firmware 7.0 - For Classic Model S

    My update is complete, vin 38k. My notes DO NOT include the performance and zero-speed improvements mentioned elsewhere. Wtf! Build 2.7.56. The notes for the RWD cars that have AP DO include the performance and zero-speed improvement language, however, as shown in the below screenshot from...

    Firmware 7.0 - For Classic Model S

    Could this be a situation where these elements where simply left out of the notes, but did make it into the firmware? The AP RWD version of the software does have the performance improvement language (and the "zero speed" improvements) in their notes. Yet it says "rear wheel drive" not "rear...

    Firmware 7.0 - For Classic Model S

    Look at post 557 in this thread: Autopilot and v7 coming this Thursday! (15-10-15) - Page 56 this is guy DID get the performance improvements. What release # did you get?

    Firmware 7.0 - For Classic Model S

    Pig what release did you get? Others have received the performance improvements:

    Firmware 7.0 - For Classic Model S

    Vn 37xxx installing now. S85...will report back on notes. I believe the performance improvements are non-performance versions. Will know in 90 minutes!
  27. B

    Firmware 7.0

    Can someone with a non-dual motor post release notes also? Curious if the acceleration improvements we saw in beta made into the release. Thanks! Me and my dusty old non-AP model S still waiting for download....

    RWD performance Improvement from v7.0 - how much?

    The p85's may be traction limited - but we know the S85's aren't (the P85's performance proves that the S85 isn't traction limited).

    RWD performance Improvement from v7.0 - how much?

    Yesterday the v7.0 release notes were leaked. Amidst a bunch of autopilot stuff, was a nugget regarding improved performance for RWD cars. Specifically that "motor control enhancements initially developed f or dual motor model S have now been incorporated into RWD Model S, enabling higher...
