    Refresh LR Black Screen

    This has been happening lately with my 2022 Model S. I am thinking it is software bugs since it only began about a month ago. Mostly happens in the morning after sitting in the garage all night. Temperatures here get down to about 45 or 50 deg F overnight but our attached garage is insulated...

    Tesla UI vs Apple CarPlay vs Android Auto

    BTW This problem was finally fixed about 2 months ago. I am no longer getting blasted with volume 10 on my Tesla. Not sure if Apple fixed it or Tesla fixed it but I am no longer complaining about this issue.

    Wire size for wall charger

    There is no "ground/neutral" wire. Single phase 240v wiring in the US for the Gen 3 Wall Connector specifies 2 hots and a ground (no neutral). If you used the white for ground then you need to add some green electrical tape to both ends where it connects. Or else change to the bare wire as...

    Show of hands… Adaptive Suspension

    Mine was delivered in December 2021 and has the same bad suspension issue. Northern Illinois has many potholes and bad expansion cracks on concrete paved roads. I didn't notice how bad it was until I drove my wife's 2013 BMW 535xi last weekend on a 30mi round trip. The BMW ride was quiet...

    Model S doors unlocking while driving

    2022 Model S refresh. Took delivery Dec 16, 2021. I was sitting at a traffic light a few weeks ago and the door handles cycled in and out multiple times. Using my iphone as key. No other keys or fobs present. iPhone 13 pro sitting on the normal charging area. It hasn't happened since...

    Yoke HORN placement tips and tricks

    I don't consider my use excessive although I don't live in your cherished state. I consider a horn necessary to wake up the driver in front of you when the traffic light turns green and they are too deep in their cellphone use to notice. Other than that, I use it for emergencies and the last...

    2021+ Model S LR Delivery Tracking

    I skipped the PPF and went for full ceramic coating. My thoughts were that I don't need the PPF because I drive low miles without much traffic. Mostly driving to work and home and usually not during rush hours. I have 1368 miles on it in just over 2 months. Now I am thinking about getting the...

    2021+ Model S LR Delivery Tracking

    Probably like you, I ordering my car online and had no relationship with a Tesla salesperson. My closest delivery center was Schaumburg, IL and I live about 80 minutes from there so it is not convenient to drop in and chat. I started calling the toll free number after waiting about 3 months...

    2021+ Model S LR Delivery Tracking

    My wait was 7 months so I feel your pain. I checked several times before my car was built and they told me that A/S tires would be on my car shipped to Chicago. When it arrived in December, I had the service center check and they told me that yes it had A/S tires on it. When I arrived to pick...

    Yoke HORN placement tips and tricks

    They could make the horn voice activated when I say a chosen word really loud. Like FxxK or A$$Hxxxx which is usually shouted when I have a really close call. I have had two of those close calls when turning the yoke. Absolutely should have been mounted in the center on top of the airbag...

    2021+ Model S LR Delivery Tracking

    Select #3 and join OARS. It will cost you $10. I think that is the group I joined. DCU was great to work with. Approved 100% loan at 1.24% last December. I started the application process about 10 days before my car was delivered. Then I called them in early morning a few days after my...

    iPhone connectivity and actions

    Same problem. I have the myQ app installed which sends me a notification every time a garage door opens. When backing out of my garage at home and at work, my Tesla volume goes to "10" (LOUD) with that notification. I don't really want to remove the app. I never have this problem using...

    Tesla UI vs Apple CarPlay vs Android Auto

    I love how my iphone 13 under Bluetooth turns my volume up to 10 nearly every time I am backing out of my garage. It makes my iphone music sound so much better! :mad: For some reason, the volume stays at the previous level with iphone Apple CarPlay integration on my Ford and with my Alpine...

    Tesla UI vs Apple CarPlay vs Android Auto

    I have been with out CarPlay since I sold my Ford Edge back in late October 2021. Love my new Model S refresh but really missing the CarPlay iPhone integration. With CarPlay I was able to easily use Siri to originate texts, read texts to me, reply to texts... all without looking at a screen or...

    $12K for FSD is insane

    Interesting that there are more accidents in Winter. That makes perfect sense as AP has a difficult time with salt covered roads and during snow or rain storms. Obviously I would expect more accidents during those weather conditions when AP won't work. But it does skew the numbers when you say...

    $12K for FSD is insane

    I know it is hard to believe, but not everybody with a Tesla lives in California. There are many opportunities to enjoy driving in the rest of the world. And I rarely drive on a Freeway or on a Tollway.

    $12K for FSD is insane

    I love driving and my Model S is the best driving car that I have ever owned but.... I love to drive fast and I hate speeding tickets. Autopilot and my Insurance app keep my driving throttled. I find that using cruise control or autopilot set to about 12% over the speed limit keeps me sane and...

    $12K for FSD is insane

    That is making a big assumption which I don't believe. That the price for FSD will continue to increase in a linear fashion. I don't buy it. I believe that Tesla is testing their buyers to see how high they can go. They won't be able to continue the price increase as more and more potential...

    Just an observation but it sounds like you want to trade Karen in for Nicki. 😄

    $12K for FSD is insane

    We are 100% in agreement. That is where I think the upcoming competition from new EVs will help to move Tesla to offer more features on the "free" AP. This reminds me of when Ford first offered Apple CarPlay. I bought a 2016 Ford Edge Titanium. It came with their new Sync 3 architecture...

    $12K for FSD is insane

    I agree 100% on your first two points but disagree on that last. I only want FSD when I am on a road trip. That might happen once or twice a year if I am lucky. For my uses, it should be billed like charging. When I use it, charge me for the minutes, hours, days, weeks or months when I have...

    $12K for FSD is insane

    I wouldn't be driving a new Tesla if I was over extended. I would be driving something cheap that I could afford. Most people with a high net worth don't waste their money on frivolous things. They know the value of money and have learned how to save and manage it. 😐

    $12K for FSD is insane

    Still "insane" but the price increase to $12K takes effect on January 17, 2022. He left plenty of time for fanboys to steal it at the "bargain" price of $10,000 USD. 😋

    $12K for FSD is insane

    Has anyone noticed the wave of upcoming EV competition that is including their own version of hands free driving with much lower costs? I have a Ford F150 Lightning reserved. I'm hoping to take delivery by the end of 2022 well before Cybertruck ships. Ford BlueCruise offers 3 years for free...

    Apple CarPlay workarounds for Tesla Model S

    I used CarPlay with my Ford Edge for almost 5 years before I sold it and took delivery on my Model S. The audio interface to my iphone music was much better than Tesla's bluetooth music version. And I really miss sending texts through Siri and audio reading of received texts. I have not found...

    2021+ Model S LR Delivery Tracking

    ...rear load floor cargo cover + rear privacy cover on back order.... Has anyone with a December 2021 or later delivery received these yet? I could really use the floor cargo cover and am tempted to make a temporary plywood version if it is going to take Tesla a few months or more to deliver...

    2021+ Model S LR Delivery Tracking

    That is sooner than I expected for delivery. I was thinking that they would begin shipping in June. What model did you end up ordering? Color? Did you get your reservation placed in the first hour?

    2021+ Model S LR Delivery Tracking

    Not for me. Still waiting. I am just going by press releases and when I reserved which was about 12 hours after reservations opened. Their PR stated that they had 20K reservations in 12 hours.

    2021+ Model S LR Delivery Tracking

    Fair enough. As a reservation holder, we won't place our orders (with confirmed pricing) until Ford contacts us to place our order. They will do that in the order of our reservations and only allow orders that will fit into their planned delivery window for that period. They are supposed to...

    2021+ Model S LR Delivery Tracking

    As a former Ford owner, new Model S owner, and someone who has reserved an F150 Lightning you need to explain the meaning behind your statement. For the past 5 years that I owned my Ford, I received excellent service, great communications from the dealership, and my car had Apple CarPlay which...

    And you are going to love that Blueberry Creamsicle when it arrives. I played the waiting game for 7 months before my Licorice Creamsicle arrived two weeks ago. It WAS worth the wait. My first Tesla and still learning new things about it every day. And I smile every time I walk into the...

    2021+ Model S LR Delivery Tracking

    Insurance prices are all over the place depending on company, location, driving history, miles a year that you drive, age, and concessions. I went with USAA and was able to insure for less than $100 a month. A friend who lives in Colorado was paying about $600 a month for two Tesla's (a Model X...

    Wall Connector to MS: 34 mph or 44 mph?

    Gen 3 wall connector, 60 amp breaker, AWG#6 wire inside EMT conduit 40 foot conduit run to panel. Looks like 45mph charge rate to me.

    2021+ Model S LR Delivery Tracking

    Ask for the VIN and Date of Manufacture. Make sure NF (2022) and not an older MF (2021) VIN with an early year build date. If built in Nov 21 or later, and they don't try to change the price on you, I would contact Tesla and take it.

    MSM/Cream with 19s will be a beautiful car. That was my 2nd choice for color and close to my first choice. Since taking delivery, I have decided that I like the 19s without the wheel covers. I just have to get the right center hub covers. 21s look great but not in our mid-west city where all...

    2021+ Model S LR Delivery Tracking

    For those who are upset and disappointed for delays in receiving your new Tesla Model S or Plaid, I get it. I patiently waited 7 months for delivery while my first EDD showed 3 month wait and during that 7 month wait I saw many carts delivered with shorter wait times than mine. And also a few...

    2021+ Model S LR Delivery Tracking

    When I picked up Model S on December 16th at one of the Chicago offices, I saw several Plaids and a bunch of Model YPs that were on the outside lot and used for test drives. Yes, I believe they made more of the high end models that were not sold or less likely they had a bunch of canceled orders...

    I get the NHTSA. Do we really need video games in the front seat while driving? As someone who was at one time thinking of dropping my order because the yoke was forced on us with no other option, after finally taking delivery and driven about 250 miles, I have come to really like the yoke and...

    Thanks! I ordered a set of the Gorilla lug nuts. The black chrome set are part number 61148BCX-20. I still need to measure the hub to see if the common 56mm caps fit.

    If Alliance is sending you the check for $100K then you still have some leverage whether or not you pay the $1K in advance. If Alliance is sending payment directly to Tesla then it doesn't really matter. I would pay the $1K in advance. In any case, you can refuse to take delivery, cancel the...

    I placed my order online on May 15 and put $100 down with a credit card. I picked it up on Dec 16 in Schaumburg which is one of the Chicago sales offices.
