    Is it possible to leave FSD beta and return?

    @newberry94005 If you ask me the question, let me add more information. I paid for full FSD with the purchase of the car. I'm only interested in leaving and returning to the Beta program. I've been impressed with the improved ability of FSD. However, with updates of roughly once a month, a...

    Is it possible to leave FSD beta and return?

    I’ve been on FSD beta for over six months. Although I’m happy with the beta, the pace of new updates is slow. Lately, new non-beta software updates include new features I’d like to try. If I canceled the FSD beta, could I rejoin the beta program easily?

    Oh! So close Model S

    RESOLVED The solution was simple, and at the same time, it took some serious thinking and a complete understanding of the handle system by Daniel of Tesla service. I'm very impressed with Tesla's Service. They were quick to respond and find a quick solution with a brand new handle design. The...

    Oh! So close Model S

    It started after an adjustment to the door handle. The first time it happened was in my garage the second and third time also in my garage in front of the tech. The tech did something he thought to fix it. The next time occurred while the car was in drive but stopped at a red light. After that...

    Model S Delivery Hold Week of July 19 2021

    2021.12.25.5 was downloaded. That upgrade also provided the auto direction selection. That works very well. (I only have 200 miles). It does require more extensive camera calibration.

    Model S Delivery Hold Week of July 19 2021

    My car was released from hold and delivered on 7/27. No credible explanation was available. The car is fantastic with the exception of the yoke and it's overly sensitive buttons to accidental pushes. I've inadvertently turned on blinkers, windshield wipers and horn several times. The yoke...

    Model S Delivery Hold Week of July 19 2021

    July 6 was my committed delivery date. I had State Farm add the new car effective that date. Next week I go into an awkward period where the new car has not been delivered because of the containment hold and the thirty-day insurance grace period will come to an end the following week.

    Model S Delivery Hold Week of July 19 2021

    I just got a third delay to delivery most recently from this Friday, 7/23 to 7/28. The newest date is tentative. The hard-to-believe reason for the delay according to the delivery person is the store doesn't have a list of items to check prior to customer delivery from the factory. The store...

    Model S Delivery Hold Week of July 19 2021

Although I've got a new place holder delivery date of this Friday, I've got doubts it will occur. If you look at the avatar the new...

    Screen Protector for Model S (Plaid + LR) Refresh 2021.5

    If you don't mind cleaning fingerprints off once in a while you may not need to protect the screen. I'm about to receive my third Model S( 2015, 2018, and next week 2021) and have not had any scratching of the screen. I've even carried 2x4 in the car. They never touched the screen.

    Oh! So close Model S

    Back in March, I decided I wanted to replace my 2018 Model S 100D. A great car. I wanted something new. I placed an order for a long-range Blue with 21" wheels for a new 2021 Model S. I guessed that delivery would take a while. I wasn't disappointed. The car was originally scheduled for August...

    which stopping mode is safest for rwd winter snowy day driving?

    I'm a skier and live in Colorado. I travel the mountains regularly in the winter. I seek out bad weather just because skiing in fresh snow is best. I never, ever switch away from standard acceleration and regen. Once you learn to have a gentle touch with the accelerator, feathering the pedal is...

    Tesla changed the center bore on their wheels?!

    The most likely case is the purchased wheels don’t meet the standards of Tesla wheel dimensions. Could that be the reason they were for sale?

    P85D to 100D

    How to Charge past 90% for Long Trips

    When I'm on a road trip and will visit more than one supercharger I leave the charge limit on 100%. My reasoning is if I'm delayed in getting back to the supercharger in time I'll just keep charging. If I do reach over 90% the battery will only have that max charge for a short time. Usually, my...

    Why hasn't anyone put the 22 inch Model X turbines on a Model S?

    I only wish the roads here were smooth enough to use 22" wheels. There is so little rubber any rough surface has the potential of causing bubble sidewalls or destroying the rims.

    Battery charging for Model S

    For three years with my first Tesla (P85D) I would come home plug it in. Anytime the car is in the garage its plugged in. We have gone on numerous trips of two to three weeks and always left the car plugged in charging at the normal rate of 90%. By the time I traded the car in for a 100D it had...

    12V battery issue fixed by software update

    The original version of the software was 2018.10.2 soon upgraded to 10.6. The solution came with version 2018.12 which the Denver center forced to my car within minutes of my contacting them.

Just confirmed that with my car 100D 2018. One note of caution, when I tried to reboot the center screen both the instrument...

    Question regarding max amperage capability of the "old" HPWC.

    The only benefit of Dual chargers is one of charging speed. Two chargers give you a little less than 1mile/minute of additional range versus a single charger slightly less than 0.5 miles/minute of additional range.
